Knuckle Rings

20 Mar

We have really been digging the knuckle ring trend but have had trouble finding the perfect ones that didn’t break the bank. We finally found these from Uncovet and had to order them right away.

We purchased them in gold but they’re available in silver and rose gold too! We love the look with the bright nailpolish and have a feeling we’ll be rocking these beauties all spring long.

NYFW: What We Wore

13 Mar

If we learned one thing at fashion week, it was that being fashionably late is a real thing. Each show started at least 30 minutes later than schedule and clearly it rubbed off a little on us. So although it took us longer than expected, here is what we wore during our week in NYC. Just consider us very, very fashionably late.

Passion for Fashion {Week!}

7 Jan

One month from today, we will be heading to the Big Apple with our sister, Marisa, for New York Fashion Week!! We cannot put into words how excited we are. This was a BIG Christmas gift from our amazing Dad and we were all shocked when we opened up the envelopes that read we would be headed there in February.

New York is one of our favorite cities to travel to and this experience of a lifetime that will definitely be one for the books!

NYE Glam Inspiration

30 Dec

Besides your birthday, New Year’s Eve is the only day you can get away with wearing head to toe sparkle. Bright lips, big hair, and oversized accessories are a must on this annual celebration. We don’t care if you choose to wear a sequin dress, feather skirt, or accessorize your favorite Little Black Dress, just GLAM IT UP! Every year we take our time finding the perfect sequined item to wear as we ring in the new year. If you still need ideas for your NYE outfit, we put together some looks to give you some inspiration.

NYE2

If you’re going to wear a full sequin dress, tone it down a bit with the accessories. A classic black pump and a brightly colored clutch will pull the look together.

NYE1

You can never go wrong with a fun skirt, but for New Years Eve, you gotta have the sparkle! Pair it with a glitter clutch and a red lip to give it that little something extra.

NYEaccessorize

Every girl has a little black dress in her closet which means your options are endless when it comes to accessorizing it. Take inspiration from our board of glitzy pieces to make even the simplest LBD a standout in the crowd.

Wednesday Wish List: Paris!

21 Nov

Back in 2009, we loaded up our matching Northface backpacks and headed to Europe. Eleven days, five countries, just the two of us. We have to be honest though, we went looking like pretty serious backpackers, but ended up having to buy a suitcase in Munich because we had bought so much stuff along the way that we couldn’t carry it on our backs.

It was such an amazing trip and ever since we got back we’ve been trying to find a time that worked for both of us to plan the next one. There are so many places that we would love to go to, but Paris has always been on the top of our list. Kelly has been before but we know it would be a different experience if we went there together. We often sit around and daydream about the two of us running around Paris together shopping, sightseeing, and eating too many macarons. It usually goes a little something like this: there we are, strutting down Champs-Elysees with a “Louis on our arms, Louboutin’s on our feet, French bread in our hand, and a beret on our heads.” {that is a direct quote from Mrs. Kimberly Pelser, July 2012}. Today, when we started talking about thing that we want, a trip to Paris immediately came to mind and now that’s all we can think about, which led us to create a Paris inspired wish list this week.
