Ombré lips, anyone?

Loving the jumbo matte lip pencils by NARS. I've been searching for a really saturated red that works best with my skin tone and I think I found just the one. But the trick to a standout red lip is to line the lip with a shade darker and fill with a brighter shade!

Products used: Train Bleu (liner) and Dragon Girl (fill).

What do you think? Leave me a comment below!

{Rings and Things} Jacquie Aiche Jewelry

Jacquie Aiche Rings + Finger Bracelets | www.JacquieAiche.com

 I was recently introduced to an ah-mazing jewelry line by one of my social media clients. LA-based designer Jacquie Aiche has been creating rings and finger bracelets for a few years now. Her designs have been featured in the pages of fashion mags like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and her celebrity clientele includes the likes of Hollywood hotties such as Jessica Biel, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.

I was having trouble coming up with gift ideas for The Mr. to give me this year. But after seeing a few photos of the pieces, and the finger bracelet up close and in person, I've definitely added some of these babies to the top of my list!






Fabulous.

Follow Jacquie Aiche on Instagram for more photos. If you're in the Atlanta area, WAX in Inman Park is a stockist. They even take custom orders with real gold and diamonds! 

Go. Now. Buy!

Pumped up Kicks...and a promo code {Sole Society}

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Let's talk shoes.

I generally don't care for a lot of the online shoe sites out right now. Something about the quality on-screen that makes me raise an eyebrow. But, I have been stalking Sole Society and their offerings for a while. I feel a bit more comfortable with this site, considering they're backed by two of my favorite brands (Nordstrom and Vince Camuto). And I like how the product details clearly state whether a not a shoe is made with faux materials or genuine leather/suedes. 

So I'm really excited about my first Sole Society purchase and wanted to share a bit of the details with you. (I was going to wait to do a big unveil via YouTube, which I might still pull off, but couldn't resist the chance to share this deal!)

Meet the latest addition to my closet,  Sierra!


 I've been eying quite a few pairs of pumps on Sole Society, and finally made the purchase plunge with these babies. Plus, I used a coupon code (found on RetailMeNot.com) for $25 off my first purchase (PI_11GC). So all in all, I'm pretty happy.

Are there any styles that you like on Sole Society? Have you shopped with them before? Share your experience in the comment section below!

Oh, hey, Marc Jacobs!

I visit my local TJ Maxx at least once a week to see what new shipments have arrived. It's been the best place to find sparkly tops and dresses for ridiculously low prices. And my latest find is nothing to sneeze at.

Behold:

Marc by Marc Jacobs "Pandora" Sweater Dress | $228




I grabbed it for $39 and paired it with brown flat boots and a leopard print belt. Perfect ensemble for a night out with the girls! 

Makes me absolutely giddy to run up on amazing finds like these!
