Outfit: Pretty in Pink

August 28, 2012

Dress: Madam Rage | Shoes: Charlotte Russe | Necklace: Charlotte Russe | Bracelet: Forever 21

It's really hard to believe that I'll be back in school in a week! Most of my friends have already gone back, so it's lonely old Kristen from the week. Even though I'll be far from lonely since I've sold my soul to back-to-school season at American Eagle. I know, I complain way too much. 

I'm very grateful for my collaboration with Madam Rage! They sent me this gorgeous pink dress! I love it and can't wait to wear it in the fall with a cardigan and little tights! As for right now, I'll be wearing it with my favorite Charlotte Russe heels and a pretty matching necklace & bracelet. 

I only need 4 more followers, then I'll be having a new giveaway! It will be a gorgeous bracelet from one of my favorite boutiques, PB&J Boutique. If you are reading and you aren't a follower, make sure you follow so I can post the giveaway!

Outfit: Flannel & Lace

August 27, 2012

Button-Down: American Eagle | Tank: PB&J Boutique | Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: Marshalls | Necklace: Forever 21

I'd first off like to thank PB&J Boutique for sending me this fabulous tank top to show to all of you. Click the link under the photos to buy it; It's only $54! I thought that this tank went perfectly with the flannel. It's great for the summer to fall transition. Take off the flannel if it's hotter, and when it gets cold at night, throw on the flannel and you're all set! As for the jeans, they're incredibly comfortable. They're American Eagle's Skinny Crop fit. I know that they don't look cropped, I'm just really short! Unfortunately, American Eagle doesn't carry these in stores anymore (they were for the spring/summer season), but there still may be more online maybe on clearance. Speaking of AE, I went back to school shopping on Saturday. I got two pairs of jeans (one a mint green color and one a very dark denim), two sweaters, and a gorgeous blouse (photos on the way). Can't wait to show them all to you!

Perfectly Purple

Blouse: Marshalls | Jeans: YMI | Shoes: Dolce Vita | Necklace: vintage | Bracelets: Forever 21

I just recently partnered up with YMI Jeans (which I love so dearly) and I'm super excited about this collaboration! They just sent these perfect fuchsia colored jeans out to me and they may very well be my new favorite pair of jeans. I love the color first of all. Colored jeans are everywhere this season. My favorite part though is the stretch. These are perfect because of how comfortable they are. They're super soft and they feel like pajamas when they're on! Love these jeans & thanks so much to YMI for letting me show them off to all of you!

Tomorrow is my first day off in forever & I cannot wait! I've been closing the store for the past few nights and close again tonight, but tomorrow I'm going to the beach! I seriously need a tan for when I go back to school in a couple weeks! I'll also be doing some back-to-school shopping today, so be ready for new outfits!

Dress: Madam Rage | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bracelets: August Wrinkle | Shoes: Charlotte Russe

I've been working hours and hours at American Eagle, and it's been super exhausting. Last night, I was there until 12:30AM.. ugh. Anyways, they just set up a new floor set last night, and there is some seriously amazing new merch. Most of the stuff is up online already, so you can definitely go check that out. 

I just got this dress in the mail from Madam Rage and I'm so incredibly in love with it. It works great for summer and for fall with maybe a little pair of tights! Love this, and thank you Madam Rage for providing me with it!

Outfit: A New York Minute

August 23, 2012

Top: Solilor | Jeans: American Eagle | Purse: bebe | Necklace: Solilor | Bracelet: August Wrinkle

I've been so incredibly busy with work lately that I haven't been able to get much outfit posts in, but here it is! I just became a Solilor girl, so I thought I would show you some of my new products from Solilor! Love the necklace, it's very trendy and in style! The top is very comfortable and effortless. I loved how simple the look was. It's super punk rock, which I love to touch on from time to time. More outfit posts will be following for the next week too, so lookout for those!

top five: ipad applications

August 21, 2012

1) The Cut | Price: FREE | iPad only
The BEST iPad app in my opinion is without a doubt "The Cut" by NY Mag! It's my go-to place for all the latest fashion news, runway shows, and exclusive photos. I'm literally checking this app once a day. I love the layout for looking at runway looks/shows. There's also videos from some of the popular fashion shows which is great! It's just like being there!

2) Company Magazine | Price: $2.99/issue or you can get a subscription | iPad/iPhone
Since it's about $35 for a physical mail subscription to Company Magazine (UK), I choose to use the iPad version. It's great because it's only $2.99 an issue, or you can choose to purchase a subscription (it's cheaper than the physical copy subscription). Also, all the links and interesting things are interactive  meaning if it says "visit blahblahblah to see this awsome top!" you can click on the top, and it will bring you to the website! It's also available for the iPhone, but it's very small and hard to read, so I prefer the iPad.

3) Style.com | Price: FREE | iPad & iPhone
If you love fashion, I'm sure you're overly familiar with Style.com. This is Style.com's iPad app. They also offer this app for your iPhone. Great for fashion news, runway videos, and the latest on all the hottest fashion & lifestyle parties.

4) Trendstop.com | Price: FREE | iPad & iPhone
Similar to Style.com & The Cut, Trendstop's iPad & iPhone app's are perfect for fashion news. There's tons of news on menswear also, which is less popular with the other two apps!

5) Instapad | Price: FREE | iPad
If you're as obsessed with Instagram as I am, you'll certainly love me for showing you this amazing app. If you're away from your phone or you want to see your amazing photos larger, you can do this on your iPad (for FREE!). It's perfect for browsing through friends Instagram photos & commenting & liking!

Brilliant Backpacks

Back to School time is the best time to find backpacks hardcore on sale at the cheapest prices you can find them! I got my favorite backpack that I own at JcPenney last year as part of the Olsen twins' collection there "Olsenboye". Best part is, all the backpacks that I've shown above are all under $100! I usually use backpacks as a purse even outside of the school year because of how much you can fit in them. And, you get to have TWO free hands! My favorite is definitely the sequined Victoria's Secret bag! Which one is your favorite?

Don't forget to enter our Jemesuis Vintage giftcard contest (here). It ends in two days! Make sure you enter or you'll never win :) There's less than 100 entries, so there's a pretty good chance of winning! Follow us too: lookbook chictopia polyvore / bloglovin' / pinterest facebook twitter
