Beautiful Blogger Award!

The lovely ladies over at recently tagged us for the Beautiful Blogger Award! Thanks you two, you guys are awesome. :)

Here are 7 random things about me, Kerri~
1. I love my dog Chevy .. seriously what is not to love about my sidekick puppyface..

here he is with me at the beach this past weekend

2. I have a hard time keeping my room clean. So messy I know! I'm working on it!
3. I really love playing volleyball
4. I'm a music lover that can't understand how people can say one song is their favorite. There is just so much good stuff out there how could you ever choose!
5. I have a love hate relationship with Target. But doesn't everyone? Walk in for shampoo, walk out with new shirt, sandals, headband, shampoo, eye shadow... you get the point.
6. I really want to travel. If I could, I would go on a world tour. Maybe I will someday? Who knows...
7. I started a separate blog to keep tabs on my personal thoughts, except Im finding it hard to keep up with. check it here if you like-- Wanderlusting Fool

And here are Natalya's 7 Randoms:

1. Through this blog, which Kerri and I started as a fun hobby in September 2009, I discovered my dream career which is designing and writing about fashion!!
2. I started working full-time at age 18 so I never graduated college. Now, at age 25, I just quit my full-time pension planning job of 6 years, and am going back to school (classes start next Monday!!!) to get my AA degree.
3. Next January (2011) I hope to be accepted into FIDM in L.A. to pursue a B.S. degree in Fashion.
4. Half my family lives in Israel - where my father is from. I miss them terribly.
5. I have been a vegetarian since age 6 (and only cheated once since then - it was a hotdog of all things, ew)!!
6. I laugh ALL THE TIME (just ask Kerri)!! I believe life is too short to take it too seriously!
7. In high school I never put effort into how I dressed, because I had such low self-esteem, and wanted to be invisible. I really started to care about my appearance in my 20's when I wanted to feel better about myself.

We would now like to nominate these lovelies:

Another of my Urban Finds

Yesterday I wore another one of the 5 inexpensive Urban Outfitters pieces I wrote about in my last post here. This Urban Outfitters dress was only $12.99 at a local thrift store and it has the fabulous one-shoulder trend I love! I decided to mismatch the dress with a teal colored belt, and I like how it turned out, I don't believe in being too matchy-matchy.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Thrift Store - Urban Outfitters brand - $12.99

Belt: Urban Outfitters $9.99

Jacket: Buffalo Exchange $31

Tights: Target $5

Booties: Target $30




I typically love most things from Urban Outfitters, but I typically can't afford it! That's why when I saw this green tweed blazer on sale for $40 down from $78 I had to have it. What a freaking steal! I fell in love with it when it first came out and am so happy I was patient and smart enough to not pay full price. Don't you love when that happens?! I know I do.

Blazer: Urban Outfitters $40
Top: Forever 21
Jeans: Forever 21
Boots: Target $9
Feather Cuff: Kohls (gift)
Necklace: Etsy

I really love this blazer and already have so many remixing ideas in my head. I'm thinking I might do a weak of remixes with it. Would anyone want to see something like this?

Week of tweed blazer remixes. Yay or Nay?
Yay - Sounds interesting lets see it!
Nay - Green tweed blazers aren't my thing. free polls
Thanks for the input everyone! Be sure to leave a comment if you have a better idea regarding the remixing. I love reading all of your thoughts. :)

much love,

Menswear Inspired

I've come to realize I really adore women who can feel comfortable and sexy in menswear inspired clothing. Someday I will post some examples for all of you to see what I mean. Now, I'm not saying this outfit is particularly very masculine, but I do adore my relatively wide Express pants. I feel really comfortable in this outfit, which is always pretty important to me. Plus, I'm diggin' my skinny belt over the top. I feel like it really polishes off the look.

Outfit Details:
Pants: Express Editor Pants
Top: Forever 21
Belt: Trade from my sister
Heels: Target
Pearl Earrings: Forever 21

much love,

Five Urban Outfitters Finds Under $20!!!

Last Friday Kerri said she was going to Urban Outfitters after work and I decided to tag along. I didn't expect to find anything because usually everything is too expensive for my budget, so when I found five items for under $20 each, I definitely left the store happy. Here's what I bought: the tights above for $14, the dress above $19.99 and the first two dresses below for $19.99 each as well!! The third dress below was a lucky find from a thrift store I went to with Kerri a week ago. I bought it for $12.99 which made me happy! It is weird because I checked the Urban Outfitters website today and the prices for these items are more expensive online, so I definitely suggest going into the store to buy items.

Outfit Details for outfit I am pictured wearing above:

Dress: Urban Outfitters $19.99
Tights: Urban Outfitters $14
Shoes: Famous Footwear $20
Necklace: Castro in Tel Aviv
Leather Jacket: Target $70
