Online Favourites…

A friends recently asked me what my favorite online shopping sites were, and that got me thinking, I have tons I would love to share with all of you! So there are the basics… such as Topshop, Zara, Asos, River Island, etc. but I thought I would take this time to share with you some of my favorites that you might not have ever heard of. So here are my top 10 favorite online stores (in no specific order, and disclosing the previous ones just stated which I absolutely adore :P), and a few of my current favorite pieces from them…

3. Mura Boutique

This is an Australian store, and it’s about to be summer there so all of their items are summer related. They still have great pieces and can get their winter items on sale when their season is over! What a win!


4. Public Desire

Fall Style Trends via Vogue

After drooling over the whopping 835 pages of Vogue’s September issue, the trends for this Fall are prominently splashed across pages covered in Saint Laurent, Valentino, Chanel and more. Compilations of notes later, I’ve put together for you the ultimate style guide to this fall straight from Vogue itself, and where you can find the best pieces at the best prices (and it’s looking pretty 70s)…

Dress: Mono B (register & check out their pieces!)

I found this gorgeous dress in a little boutique in downtown Bristol, RI. It’s so incredibly stunning in the simplest way! It’s very thin and breezy, and makes me feel oh-so-glam (; It has a very tiny slight lift in the front and drape in the back so it’s never a bother when walking around. It’s up there with my top 3 favourite pieces this summer! And I found it on sale! (my mom bought it for me, thanks mom :P) I’m not the biggest fan of maxi dresses but this one is killer! I paired it with this gorgeous gold statement necklace that I got last winter in another Boutique in Bristol called Jackies Loft. Gold is a great color with this dress! When I tried it on in the store I was wearing a gold body chain underneath and it looked stunning!



Fashion Blogger Spotlight: That Pommie Girl

Instagram is my favorite place to explore new stores and bloggers. I always find the best deals, special/unique brands, and outfit inspiration. One of my favorite bloggers of the moment is Sarah Ashcroft, the UK fashion blogger for That Pommie Girl. She doesn’t only have to-die-for style, but her makeup is always gorgeous! Trust me, I wouldn’t waste your time… Her page is really worth checking out. She posts makeup tutorial videos on youtube, and even gives you pay-day inspiration from multiple different stores. In case you’re just a bit curious, here are some of my recent favorite looks from her page…

VMA Style You DON’T Want to Miss

The VMA’s are always a night that tends to be filled with celebrity drama — I mean, what award show doesn’t have some drama? But these celebrity red carpet looks are the type you definitely don’t want to miss; from the major NO-NO’s to the ultra rad looks that will never be forgotten, and some sexy attire that has hit the trend meter, check them out here:

Lets start off with Riff Raff & Katy Perry. This is a look the pair will certainly be remembered for throughout style history, as was Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s infamous look from the 2001 American Music Awards. They pulled off the look quite well, and even got Britney’s approval.

article-0-20C5592200000578-104_634x849 article-0-20C53EB900000578-19_634x1083



This next look is one that I definitely feel could have been pulled off a bit better with someone who has a little more height. Kim Kardashian in this short, beaded dress looks too much like an oompah oomph (no offense Kim!). The dress itself is gorgeous, but she was showing too much cleavage and almost drowned in the largeness of the sleeves. She is already a very short, small woman as it is and this dress didn’t help, especially paired with the high ankle heels, which resulted in her legs looking even shorter.

kim-kardashian-mtv-vma-20141 kim-kardashian-mtv-vma-2014



Jennifer Lopez looked absolutely stunning in her revealing Charbel Zoe gown. Looking younger than ever, she is in amazing shape and has no worry showing off a bit of skin!



Kendall Jenner looking amazing, as usual, in this Alon Livne mesh top and high waisted pant. Fabulous style is her second nature!



I was very impressed in Nick Jonas’s unique suit, and of course had to add him into this post simply because of his fabulous Rhode Islander girlfriend, Olivia Culpo. Who couldn’t love her!?



Ariana Grande channelled her inner sexy side in this tiny, leather Moschino dress (well, she is tiny) and her signature thigh high boots. She still looks adorable! (Don’t forget to check out her new album My Everything, which just came out last night! Get it here –> http://smarturl.it/ArianaMyEvrythnDlxDA …   It’s just as amazing as her xo)



Sarah Hyland looked unbelievably STUNNING in this Kaufmanfranco dress. This was absolutely my favorite look of the night.



To be honest, I didn’t know Charli XCX was wearing a onesie or an outfit for a build-a-bear. Not impressed with this look at all, and don’t expect many of you with fashion taste to love this look either.



Another look that had me gasping “No – no really, WHY” is Amber Rose. This is just way too revealing in the worst ways. She looks like a stripper, ready for the best performance of her life.



Solange Knowles looking gorgeous in H&M. From hair-to-toe, she rocks this look amazingly.




Both Jourdan Dunn and Victoria Justice (and the little bow ties on her heels- so cute!), wearing crop top pieces and long skirts, looked stunning in their ensembles. jourdan-dunn-mtv-vma-20141 victoria-justice-amber-rose-mtv-vma-2014


Although the entire night did seem like the Beyonce Music Awards, I give the woman some credit on her Press gown. She looked amazing (as usual).




A few moments of the night that can’t be forgotten:

Nicki Minaj humping the floor with dancers to her new song, “Anaconda.” If you haven’t seen it yet, youtube it. It won’t be hard to find.



Another moment created by the infamous Nicki Minaj was during her performance with Usher, as he knelt down and bumped his head against her butt during their performance.


And lets not forget about her wardrobe malfunction during her performance with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, where the zipper to the front of her dress broke and she had to hold it together the entire time.

Another memorable moment was made by Miley Cyrus. The crazy artist had her award accepted by a homeless artists by the name of Jesse, who made a speech about the numerous homeless teens and young people in LA who are aspiring artists, and encourage viewers to donate to giving them better lives.



See more pics from the night on Hollywood Life here.



Outfit of the Day: May 30 2014

Kim Kardashian made memorable fashion moments in Paris as she awaited her wedding day. This outfit was worn out on a ice cream date with her new hubby, Kanye West. This is an every day outfit that can be worn by anyone! She looks absolutely stunning in these simplistic pieces and is back in amazing shape.


Long sleeved white v-neck with an open back, light blue skinny denim high ankle jeans and gold pointed, strappy heels. Simply beautiful (and Kanye in matching denim!)

Met Gala 2014: The Best and Worst

Fashion’s biggest night of the year, if you don’t already know, occurred May 5, 2014. The fundraising event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is a night where the dress is the most important aspect of any guest. Hosted by Vogue, the Met Gala, aka Met Ball, celebrated and fund-raised for the Met’s Costume Institute for the opening of their Fashion Exhibit. Raising nearly $9 million last year, it’s an important night for celebrities to dress extravagantly.

Here’s the top Best and Worst dressed of the night…


1. Donatella Versace

Yup, I just threw up on her dress. And that’s exactly why it looks like that. Even that’s not a good enough excuse for this disaster. She always wears strange pieces, but I just couldn’t let this one pass bye. She looks like she’s about to go visit aliens in space, because that’s where this dress belongs.

2. Kirsten Dunst

This isn’t the Star Wars premiere. This just had way too much going on and needs to be buried. Donatella’s meeting her up in space.

3. Kristen Stewart

4 random fabrics of the same color piled on top of each other. Really Kristen? Really Chanel? (BTW in all reality, love Kristen with the orange hair)

4. Kate Upton

C’mon, Kate. I definitely think more highly of smoking babes. But then again, she’s usually not quite dressed at all. Little-miss-bo-peep, go back to you pasture.

5. Maggie Gyllenhaal

She kind of looks like she’s wearing a curtain she stole from the That 70s Show set. This is just way too much polka dots. The collar on the top is too casual and the colors are too blah. And the cape to match… Really… There’s no fixing this dress.

6. Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth, did you join figure skating? Will I see you in the next winter Olympics? Hopefully not. Unbelievably unflattering and too light for her skin tone. Adorable shoes, wrong dress.

7. Katie Holmes

Oh Katie…. (sigh), shriveled like a rotten peach.. This dress explains itself.

8. Lupita Nyong’o

This is a night to look like a princess, not a flapper. I am seriously disappointed after her fashionable past. Although, as always, she knows what colors glow on her flawless skin (and I’m a sucker for her shoes!).

9. Rita Ora

Lets not even start on the shoes. And the ridiculous arm wrap. Do I possibly need to say anymore?


1. Cara Delevingne

She doesn’t even need an extravagant ball gown to be a stunning beauty. She may not be dressed traditionally for this event, overall she looks amazing. Sporting the latest crop top and high-waist – well, anything! – trend, she looks sophisticated yet sexy. A stunner .

2. Joan Smalls

The blue lipstick was daring and fab – The Vera Wang gown gorgeously fitting her like she’s just in her skin. Possibly #1 best.

3. Emma Stone

Oh Emma, you make the fashion world go round in this Thakoon outfit. Simple yet elegant. The top could have been a bit less casual for the occasion, but still hits all the right spots.

4. Victoria Beckham 

In her own design, Mrs. Beckham always (usually) takes the right turns in fashion, and did in this amazing piece. It’s clear: the plain and simple are winning the race this year.

5. Suki Waterhouse

This Burberry gown is true beauty. It’s the perfect amount.

6. Emmy Rossum

Floral’s are huge this Spring and Summer, and Emmy made all the right choices in this gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown. Bring on the  sunshine and tea parties.

7. Kendall Jenner

A huge fan of the rising model, I didn’t expect anything less than perfection. In Topshop, Kendall fits the gown perfectly, and the gown fits Kendall. The Stunning Chopard necklace was adds to the sophisticated look.

8. Blake Lively

The already stunning actress blew my mind away in this Gucci gown. There are no real words to describe this beauty.

9.Karolina Kurkov

Giant, and giant-ly breathtaking. What a perfect gown for this event. My top #1 of the night, this dress represents exactly what this event is all about. I couldn’t imagine this gown on anyone else. Cant get enough of this.

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

Fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta. She always goes big and crazy and always makes it look fabulous. Her hair is gorgeous and the gown just screams ‘Met Ball 2014’. My second favorite gown of the night, doing the Met Gala gown tradition right.
