Unforgettable Movie Review

I had a lot of fun screening Unforgettable a few weeks back. Now that the movie is out, I wanted to share a few fashion finds. This movie is lots of fun for a girls night out and Katherine Heigl’s style is flawless. Say what you will about her character, Tessa’s, state of mind, but crazy looks good on her.

Heigl recently stepped out for the official red carpet premiere event and was definitely channeling Tessa in a Blumarine dress. I found this Lauren Ralph Lauren Metallic Mesh Gown ($210) to recreate the look.

During the movie, Julia (Rosario Dawson) tries on a beautiful v-neck white dress and then Tessa shows up to the opening of her ex-husband’s bar opening wearing the exact same dress! This Ivanka Trump Scuba Crepe Dress ($128) is similar:

During the riding scene, Katherine Heigl wore a pair of Mountain Horse Firenze zip dress boots ($119.99):

During the movie, there is a scene with Tessa and her daughter at her vanity and it reminded me of old Hollywood glam. I loved the robe and that vanity is to die for!

I found this Dalia Robe ($250) to get her look:

I loved all of Tessa’s sheath dresses throughout the movie, especially this grey one at the school. This Kasper V-Neck Sheath Dress ($49.99) is similar:

Will you see Unforgettable? I would love to hear what you thought!

Splurge vs. Steal: Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals

I have seen these shoes everywhere and they are hot! What a great heel for summer, wedding season, etc. Celebrities are sporting the Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals right and left, you can see them on Jennifer Lawrence, Hillary Duff, Solange, and Michelle Monaghan to name a few.

I had never heard of the Schutz brand before I looked up who made these shoes. The brand is based in Brazil and was created in 1995. The Juliana Caged Heel runs about $190 which isn’t bad if you are looking for a splurge. The heel is 5 inches, but the laser cut outs definitely take them up a notch. If you want to test them out for a steal enter Target with the Mossimo Kylea Caged Heel Strappy Gladiator Pumps lookalikes for only $34.99!

I think I may need to head up to Target and get these for myself!

Do you have a splurge that you want me to find a steal for? Let me know in the comments. Or let me know if you find another steal for the Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals.

April 2017 Pinspired

Now this Pinspired look is one that I’ve had on my list for a long time but have never found the perfect top to match. Well I just found it and can finally recreate this look for spring!

Here is the original Pinterest link. I love the super feminine, but somewhat casual look. It screams, “I just woke up, and threw on some pearls.” The best part is that you don’t need a lot for this look. I found this Lace Blouse from Vince Camuto (on sale right now for $53.40) and knew that it would be perfect!

GAP Mid Rise Boyfriend Jeans ($69.95)

I haven’t tried the boyfriend jeans yet, but they are perfect for these looks. I always buy GAP jeans, they are my favorite.

Nine West Jackpot Pointy Toe Pumps ($79)

I love Nine West heels because they are so comfortable and I have these same ones in a different color so I can vouch for them.

For the bag I loved the Michael Kors Large Mercer Tote ($298):

I also found this Portola Belted Satchel ($29.99) in case MK isn’t in your price range for one look:

Stella + Ruby Statement Faux Pearl Hammock Multi-Strand Necklace ($39.99)

These were on sale and for a great deal!

NADRI Crystal Cluster and Faux Pearl Drop Earrings ($65)

I thought I might wear this look on a casual Friday to work, so I went a little lighter on the earrings than thin the original photo.

I would love to see a photo if you end up recreating this look at home.

Spring 2017 Favorites

After being sick most of winter, I am BEYOND ready for spring. Let’s get some fresh air in here and add a pop of color to our life! Here are my favorite things for spring.

Christian Siriano Kadence Slingback ($17.99)

I love getting a fun spring shoe. The only rule is that it must be colorful!

OPI Two Timing the Zones ($12.50)

I was pumped that OPI did a Fiji Collection for spring. Fiji is still on my bucket list and wearing these colors will make me think about it every time!

Lilly Pulitzer Short Sloane Dress ($178)

I love Lilly for spring! Every girl needs a go to sundress for the season and this is perfect.

Bath & Body Works Happy Easter – Sugared Candy Bunny Candle ($12.50)

I love a candle and this one combines Easter and vanilla and cinnamon. It would make your house smell great during Easter dinner.

Calvin Klein Saffiano Satchel ($228)

I walked by this bag in the store and LOVED it. I would carry this every day this season!

Yes to Shower Cocktail Body Wash ($5.99)

This body wash is in a cocktail shaker – how fun is that? There are three different versions for revitalizing, hydrating, and detoxifying.

Connected Floral-Print Faux-Wrap Dress ($54.99)

This is my pick for an Easter dress this year. I love that it is navy and combines florals.

Christian Siriano Marilyn Crossbody ($14.99)

I like to get a spring clutch every year which is a great addition to any plain colored outfit. You can grab it on the way out the door and instantly have a new look.

Make Lemonade Kitchen Towel ($10)

OMG I love this Kate Spade lemon series! I want to deck out the kitchen and dining room with them! The apron, tablecloth and placemats are just too cute! Honey if you’re reading this these would make awesome anniversary/birthday presents.

Tulle Ball Skirt ($198)

YES, YES, and YES.

Lilly Crystal Earrings ($58)

I needed to add an accessory to this list and I just love these earrings for all of the fun spring clothes!

Vince Camuto High/Low Top ($79)

I thought this was a great transition piece for spring because you could still pair it with leggings and booties or summer it up depending on the weather.

What are your Spring favorites this year?

I still love my previous lists which you can view here: Spring 2016, Spring 2015 and Spring 2014.



Bachelor 21 – Week 10

We started this episode with Raven’s morning after (which was totally overdone btw). Nick met up with Rachel next for their overnight date. As they are in Finland and the frigid weather, there isn’t a ton of fashion to cover this week. Everything was more functional. I’m not going to lie, but I think the penguin onesie may have did her in…

Vanessa started her overnight date with a Woolrich Down Parka ($789). This similar Women’s Arctic Down Parka ($199.99) is similar for less:

I love watching Nick and Vanessa together, you can see the chemistry between them and just the way they talk about each other…something special is happening. Things started to get serious as the date progressed and they were trying to work out some serious issues. Vanessa wore a Woolrich White Collection Women’s Wool Blanket Coat with Belt ($550):

These two keep getting cuter. After a deep conversation it seems like things are moving faster than any of his other relationships. Vanessa wore a cold shoulder sweater to keep her warm. This Chunky Open Shoulder Top ($45) is similar:

At the rose ceremony, Raven looked fantastic covering up everything with just a keyhole of cleavage in the Stone Cold Fox Victoria Dress ($93). This “Danni” Black Mockneck Long Sleeve Keyhole Sweater Dress ($34.99) is similar:

Vanessa wore a va-va-voom mermaid cut dress with a plunging sweetheart neckline from Boohoo. It is unfortunately sold out, but you can get this Trumpet Dress from Hebeos for just $132.99:

Rachel looked fierce in her rose ceremony dress, which was the perfect ending to her journey and beginning to her adventure as our next Bachelorette. Her dress is from Madison James ($378). This Vince Camuto Embellished Keyhole Halter Gown ($188) is a similar look for less:

What are your thoughts on the final two? Will it be Raven or Vanessa in the end?

If you missed this episode you can still get it on iTunes.

Bachelor 21 – Week 9

We pick up right where Nick left off, with Andi popping by for a visit. This was equal parts awesome and awkward. These two have great chemistry together. I am still a little sad that she didn’t pick Nick on her season. I haven’t read her book yet but am hoping to soon-hopefully it explains a lot.

Andi definitely upped the fashion game this episode looking fantastic as usual. She wore these amazing Balenciaga Graphic suede ankle boots ($1335). They are still available in red. She also wore a sold out Vince Asymmetric Leather Jacket and sold out Vince Smooth Leather Leggings. To recreate her look you can snag this BB Dakota Laverne Faux Leather Jacket ($98), Aritzia Daria Pant ($135) and these insane look alike Charles David Robbi Booties ($89.95):

In the meantime, Nick’s other women are gathering for the rose ceremony. Vanessa is killing it again in her Nou Taupe Crossover Bust Maxi Dress ($214):

Rachel wore a Long Boucle Coat from Maje ($322.50) and a one shoulder green gown. To recreate her look try this Andrew Marc Laura Coat ($249) and this Lauren Ralph Lauren One-Shoulder Brooch Gown ($160):

Ultimately, Nick sent Corinne home and took his remaining ladies to Finland for the rest of the journey. Raven gets the first Fantasy Suite Date and they kick it off in a Finnish pub. She wore the Woolrich Two Tone Motif Sweater ($54.99):

The rest of their date gets pretty awkward with Raven revealing too much personal information on national television. She wore an off-the-shoulder red sweater. I thought this Free People Alana Slouchy Sweater ($64.80) was similar but wouldn’t fall off as much as hers did:

What did you think about Corinne’s exit and Raven’s Fantasy Suite date?

Bachelor 21 – Week 8

Nick ends the trip in Bimini by giving all the women roses to take them to hometown dates. First up is Raven in Hoxie, Arkansas. During the date, Raven finds out her dad is cancer free, which makes for a special moment. Nick mentions that their relationship is moving the fastest and I think that’s a pretty good sign that he’s into her. They went mud-bogging, so no exciting fashion to show on that date.

Next up is Dallas, Texas where Nick meets Rachel’s family. Rachel wore a fabulous Off White Cold Shoulder Tuxedo Jacket from Love Culture (sold out). If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that this is a cold shoulder vest, but she doesn’t put her arms in the “sleeves.” This 1. STATE Collarless Open Front Long Vest ($119) is similar:

She is also sporting the Stella and Dot Signature Engravable Bar Necklace ($59):

Corinne’s hometown date was interesting, I suspect that the shopping spree was producer funded. I think Corinne really thought she had something, but the writing is on the wall, this was essentially her first one-on-one date.

On to Canada for Vanessa’s hometown. The chemistry between these two is electric. Vanessa wore a cool wool and leather coat which is sold out from Zara. I found this Belle by Badgley Mischka Solid Long Sleeve Coat ($99.97) and this Vera Wang Taylor Wool-Blend Coat ($175.99) to recreate the look:

Vanessa is such a gem, you can really see her heart in this episode. Not to mention she is beautiful. She wore a sold out fur vest from Zara and these great leather pants with zippers on them. To recreate the look I found this Faux Fur Vest from Chadwicks ($59.99) and Scuba Hip Zip Leggings from Express ($35.94):

Now Nick has to decide between his ladies…Corinne thinks she is a shoo-in based on their hometown date. As she is contemplating from the balcony she wore a great sold out Bebe Faux Fur Ombre Coat. I found this similar Super Star Dip Dyed Faux Fur Coat ($67.92) if you want the look for yourself:

And cue to next week, where Andi Dorfman pops back into Nicks life…

Bachelor 21 – Week 7

So last week Nick left us with a pretty dramatic freak out, but don’t worry, after a chat with Chris Harrison he is all better. Now he can take the girls to Bimini, which I looked up so I could tell you that it is in the Bahamas. I had never even heard of it before. The girls seemed pretty excited about going there though. Vanessa got her second one-on-one date much to Corinne’s chagrin who hasn’t had a one-on-one. Vanessa wore a sold out Fringe Happy Together Blue Lace Strapless Romper. This Lovers + Friends Henna Romper ($53.40) is similar:

Vanessa is smokin hot in her evening look – no wonder Nick is smitten with her. She told Nick that she was in love with him and his response was really weird. I’m not sure where this leaves them. Vanessa wore the Lucy Slinky Knot Gather Detail Midi Dress ($30):

On the group date, Corinne tries to get Nick’s attention right off the bat by stripping down to her bikini. Kristina called her bluff and it appeared that Nick only had eyes for her. Kristina wore a Crochet Fringe Sweater Tank ($25) which made for a really cute cover up:

During the evening portion of the date Kristina wore a sold out ASTR black romper and a great double layer pendant necklace. To recreate the look I found this La Blanca Crocheted-Trim Long-Sleeve Romper Coverup ($95) and Stella and Dot Aria Pendant Necklace ($98):

We see Raven again in a Week 3 look, the sold out Stylestalker Sofala Midi Dress. This J.O.A. Scalloped Lace Midi Dress ($99) is similar:

It must have been her lucky dress, because Raven got the group date rose and a guaranteed hometown date. Danielle gets the next one-on-one date and just as it seems to be progressing nicely, Nick sends her home. She wore a sold out Nasty Gal Romper, but this Lace-Trim Surplice Romper ($32.99) is similar.

At this point Corinne has had it. She’s received no attention from Nick so she decides to put it all on the line and visit Nick in his room to “show” him how she feels. She wore a sold out Zara blouse, leather pants, Louboutins and her platinum vagine to pull out all the stops. You can get this similar Vince Camuto Georgette & Jersey Faux Wrap Blouse ($74):

Rachel was pumped for her one-on-one date and they had a local, casual date hanging out in Bimini. Rachel wore a stylish double split front maxi skirt. I found this Slit Maxi Skirt from Love, Fire ($45) to recreate her look:

Before I wrap up, this was the week that Jimmy Kimmel announced Rachel as our next Bachelorette. You can watch the clip below:

Rachel wore a Cushnie Et Ochs Asymmetric Open-Side Cami Dress ($1,395.00). This Bec & Bridge Onyx Asymmetrical Dress ($108) is similar:

What do you think about Rachel as The Bachelorette?

Bachelor 21 – Week 6

This is the two-on-one date that never ends! Taylor just won’t leave…

We head into the next rose ceremony and Nick ups the drama by cancelling the cocktail party. Now the women don’t know where they stand. Rachel is safe with a rose and she looks fabulous in a sold out Sherri Hill Beaded Two Piece Cocktail Dress. Sherri Hill makes a similar style for $518 here:

Danielle wore the Kendall Dress from SAU ($335). They also have a similar version in a different pattern here ($395).

At the rose ceremony Nick let Alexis, Jaimi, and Josephine go and then announced that the remaining women would be accompanying him to St. Thomas! Kristina got the first one-on-one date in St. Thomas and we really got to know her. I hope we see more of her in the future. She looked adorable in a sold out Flirting with Danger Cutout Ivory Dress from LuLu’s. This Jodi Kristopher Trim Inset Textured Knit Skater Dress ($69) is similar:

On the group date, Rachel wore a sold out Ecote Crinkle Square Kimono Jacket. This Women’s Kimono White Floral Merona ($26.99) is similar:

Vanessa was smokin hot in her Missguided Double Strap Crossover Bikini Set ($45). They have a similar style in more sizes with this Bandage Crossover Bikini Set ($54):

On the evening portion of the group date Danielle wore the Bardot Maxi Dress from Flynn Skye ($198). Her exact print is unavailable, but they have a ton of others to choose from:

Vanessa changed into the Sheeva Slinky Strappy Side Tie Maxi Dress ($25) which was a great evening beach look:

Nick sent Jasmine home during the group date after she had a crazy meltdown. Raven ended up getting the group date rose, saving herself for another week. Danielle and Whitney were selected for a second two-on-one date, unprecedented in Bachelor history. Danielle looked sweet in a ruffly romper. I found this Lovers and Friends Malia Ruffled Cold Shoulder Romper ($160) to recreate the look:

In a shocking move, Nick gets rid of them both. First Whitney goes home on the two-on-one and you think he is keeping Danielle but then he lets her go at dinner. I think he was really upset about Danielle since they had started to connect, so he went to the visit the remaining women and just sort of broke down. That was sort of weird, it was hard to understand what he was thinking in this moment. Nick is a sensitive soul, which is why I think women find him endearing.

Do you think Nick will find love on his journey this season?

Pantone’s Color of the Year: Greenery

Pantone has named “Greenery” the 2017 Color of the Year. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that is symbolic of new beginnings. Think the great outdoors meets the first day of spring.

I loved this thought from Pantone “The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.”

At first I wasn’t thrilled with this color, but I love the idea that enjoying it in fashion, home and beauty products should remind me to reconnect with nature, so I’m definitely digging it. Here are a few ways you can enjoy it:

Green Rectangular Lacquer Serving Tray ($24.99)

This tray is perfect to add a pop of color to any room. You can use it to serve or as a piece of decor.

Piñata Tassel Drops ($36)

These earrings are fabulous and the perfect addition to any outfit.

OPI My Gecko Does Tricks ($10)

This was the perfect match for Greenery, plus it also comes in the gel color to match which is a must have for me.

Alfani Faux-Leather Moto Jacket ($99.50)

This would be a great transition piece from winter to spring.

Aerosoles Branchlet Flip Flop Sandals ($59)

These would be adorable at the beach or during the summer months. They look comfortable!

Alfani Printed Halter Dress ($89.50)

When I saw this dress I couldn’t think of anything that embodied the spirit of Greenery more. This is such a different style than I would normally wear but I think it would look great.

Ray Ban Aviators ($175)

I can totally get on board with these beauties. I’ve been eyeing a pair of aviators for a while.

Zella Live In Slim Fit Leggings ($52)

These are my favorite yoga pants, so why not get them in green?

Kate Spade Leaves Large Notepad ($7.50)

I thought this was a fun notebook that would make you think about the outdoors.

Ralph Lauren Ruffled One-Piece Swimsuit ($120)

I love the ruffles on this!

Dooney & Bourke Leighton Tote ($170.99)

It took me a long time to find a green handbag that I liked. This one is the perfect size and shade.

Sleeveless Vee Neck Wrap Dress ($138)

I wasn’t going to add a second dress, but this is just stunning.

What are your favorite Greenery items for 2017?
