Like everyone I’m sure, these next few weeks are jam packed full of events for us and a few of them I get to get all dolled up for in cocktail attire for which is always fun to have an excuse to do. Today I’m sharing two holiday party dresses perfect for any  Christmas & NYE events you have coming up.

Faux Fur Jacket & Dainty Layering Necklaces

It’s crazy to think that two years ago I don’t think I owned one dainty necklace and now that’s pretty much all my collection consists of. Don’t worry, I haven’t let go of all my fashion statement pieces but for now they mostly stay tucked away and are typically only pulled out for parties and events. Faux fur has allllwaaayys been in my DNA, I think I owned my first one by age 5 and I’ve never looked back. I’m obsessed with them all: faux fur, sherpa, fancy or casual.

Closet Room Update {Pax Wardrobe}

One positive thing about this flood remodel is it has given me the push to finally just do the things I’ve always wanted to do when it comes to organization and decorating. Being forced to clean out and get rid of all the junk I was hoarding was something I needed.  I ended up repainting my closet room ‘white dogwood’ by Sherwin Williams and convince Erick that I needed the Pax wardrobe system from IKEA.  With this new wardrobe I was able to eliminate the gold bookcase/shelves you’ll see in my ‘before’ pics below and all of the walnut wood stained shoe shelves I had too. I’m actually going to cut the long shoe shelves I had in half and paint them white and they will go on the wall where the gold clothing rack is now. Whatever shoes don’t fit I will just keep in the closet.

Best Spring 2018 Dupes

You know, honestly, I’m not sure that even if I could afford a $1000 plus handbag if I’d actually even spend the money on it. Okay, okay, maybe if I won the lottery and had unlimited funds I’d splurge on a couple real designer handbags. However, that’s unfortunately not the case right now and there’s really no point when you can find such amazing dupes out there. I’m a fan and consumer of fast fashion trends, wear it one or two seasons then sell or donate it, that I love the fact that I can find and buy a designer dupes. Yes, while it is not going to be near the same quality as the designer version, if it still hits my normal standard of quality and looks pretty freaking close to the design, I’m sold. Keep your scroll for all my current favorite handbag, shoe, jewelry, and clothing designer dupes.

Tuesday Shoesday {Target Edition}

My most popular and still my most visited blog post from 2017 is this Target/Steve Madden Dupe post. With that being said I wanted to be sure and share a round up of my favorite Target spring 2018 new shoe arrivals. Target has no problem creating designer dupes, but let’s get one thing straight, unless you’re buying something straight off the fashion week runway  everything is a dupe. it is truly all just a trickle down effect from designer to designer. in my opinion the only difference with Target creating dupes compared to other brands or retailers is that Target does it right and not only do they do it right but they do it at an affordable retail cost.

Tiered Ruffles & Pearl Embellishment

We’ve all been there, the Timehop photo’s from half a decade ago popping up and bringing back nostalgic emotions of wherever you were and what ever stage in life you were, the friends you surrounded yourself with, and the memories made. Then after the nostalgia starts to simmer you abruptly think to yourself, ‘what in the world was I wearing!?’ oh, is Just me? gosh I hope not, ha! I have a pretty certain feeling that in five or so more years I’ll be looking back at these big ruffle sleeved sweaters I’m obsessed with right now and embellished pearl booties and think the exact same thing. But 2023 fashion police Leah can take a back seat for now because I’m going to live it up in these current trends and hopefully not regret it too much. 😉

The Best of After Christmas Sales

Good Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend with time well spent relaxing with your loved ones. I don’t know about you but I’m chugging water, green juice, and making sure I’m taking my vitamins today as I 100% committed to a full on three-day Netflix binge watching/snack session, haha.  I started and finished season 1 and all that has aired so far of season 2 of the show Riverdale, anyone watch it? It’s Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl meets National Treasure in my opinion. Super cheesy/corny and right when you tell yourself ‘OK this is too much, I’m going to quit watching’ they suck you back in and you find yourself gasping out loud and dying to know the full story. The very first episode is what got me hooked so at least give it a try  and if you can’t make it past the first episode, well, you probably shouldn’t continue watching.

ANYWAYS, there are so many auh-mazing after Christmas sales happening that I wanted to share which sales I’ll be shopping and some of my favorites from a couple places. Get those gift cards and Christmas cash out and ready to use!
