Velvet Manicure

Oh oh oh- here I go again with trying something new!!!!! I could not wait to get this in the mail and try it out! I love Amazon you can find anything there- so I went on the hunt! I bought the velvet manicure set you see here and 2 others a navy blue and a berry red. (get them here )

I must say- I was lightly disappointed for my first try but I think I have found the solution!

The color for me was a little off and there was no top coat so I found that everything stained the velvet. Excuse the look lol - I had to paint my nails myself and I am not the best at it. The idea is awesome and application is easy all in all it was a pretty good experience.

Ah- yes.... the solution I mentioned...... well there is a matte finish ( find it here) that I want to put on top of the velvet and see if that helps with the staining. I want to also try the other colors I bought to see if maybe the color was throwing me off as well...... Stay tuned!!!!!

I am going to try one of these colors next hhmmmmmm which one should I choose? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Stay Tuned!

Pink Cape~~

I could not wait to get this in the mail!!!!!  I fell in Love when I saw the blog post by The Je Ne Sais Quoi - I knew I had to have this cape by and I immediately thought of different ways that I could style it. 

Of course the LBD is always appropriate! This is similar to how The Je Ne Saia Quoi styled it, but I paired mine with a twist in the leopard print shoes and bold gold statement necklace! 
Necklace/ Bracelet: Ghianis Accessories Boutique
Dress: Fashion to Figure
Shoes: Guess (old) - similar here

Then I thought- wait, this can be a fun, gotta make a run... have to look cute outfit too- so what do I do? I paired it with some jeans, a cami and some wedges! 

Shoes: Rainbow

And of course there is always the work look!!!!!

Skirt: Fashion to Figure (old) similar here
Shoes: old

I must say I am soooooo pleased with this piece. there are still so many more possibilities for it. Stay tuned for a follow- up post.

Sunday ~~ Funday

Blog Loving

Hello Fashionistas!

This Sunday I finally got a chance to get out into the beautiful weekend weather we had (NYC). I took a field trip with my niece to the movies.... I decided to be comfy and chic! Although comfy almost always wins in the end; a mixture of the two is never wrong!
For someone who is not usually an on-line shopper, I went a little overboard recently and I couldn't wait to mix and match!!!! I have never really been a "nude" person when it came to bags and shoes because I would always use them to add color, nor was I an animal print person, especially pants but ... ehhh ... what can I say- this is all about me finding that girl in me again .."Lola" who would always go out on a limb.. so here I went... sitting on the ledge.

I have to admit, I was quite comfy and I felt like a million bucks!
