The Look for Less: Fall Fashion Trends 2017

Welcome back to Wardrobe Wednesday.  Fall fashion trends of 2017 are so on point!  What a great year for fashion.  I love all of the pleated midi skirts, metallic pieces, velvet, and flowy florals.  Not to mention the leopard boom!  But you don’t have to buy these trends are designer prices.

I have two trendy looks to show you.  Can you guess which of these is the look for less??

Look #1- Velvet + Floral Crush



The look on the left (just the two tops and the skirt) totals up to $340.  The look on the right is a mere $59.97!!  You can click each item in the image above for more price details.  Check out the look for less on me!

leopard print scarf // leopard print cardigan (love that it’s black and gray) // Crystal Bezel & Metallic Strap Watch // Haircalf Pumps (The small heel size and straps are key for me!) // leopard phone case (Can you really ever have too many phone cases?) // fuzzy knit cardigan // wrap dress (40% off) // stemless leopard print wine glass (set of 4) // haircalf leopard belt // mini buckle crossbody bag ($19.99!) // leopard print scarf ($19!)

The Leopard Trend

Style trends and changes in season always inspire me to create fashion wish lists.  I’m really into the leopard trend this fall but don’t have nearly enough of the stylish print in my wardrobe.  And since leopard is kind of trendy, I don’t want to spend a fortune on it.  (I really wanted this cardigan, but then I noticed the price lol). read more

The Dress

Erin from GarageCoutureClothes is the designer behind this adorable dress and countless other stylish creations.  (I’ve got a necklace to show you later in this post.)  Here’s the story behind this cute little shabby chic dress:
  • Erin loves to utilize all of her fabric scraps, such as the cute gingham trim on the dress and the collar.  How cute is that collar?!!  It just takes the already adorable dress to a whole other level of adorableness.
  • The construction of this dress is so impeccable!  I could not get over it when I first saw it. This dress far exceeded my expectations.  Just look at the details in my photos!

The Necklace

I didn’t wear this necklace with the dress, but I chose it because I love its sweet boho vibe and the length.  Long necklaces are a must in my wardrobe!

Erin really does use all of her resources.  The little cuff pouch is so smart and charming!  And she used leftover polymer clay from her kids’ school project to design this necklace.

Here’s some information about the jewelry at GarageCouture:

  • Erin makes most of her jewelry from broken or repurposed items, including buttons and nails.  (Her entire line of nail jewelry sold out!)
  • She also made a collection of pendants and earrings made of illustrations from vintage Lithuanian children’s books (also sold out)!

Some Background on GarageCouture Etsy Shop

Erin likes to shop at thrift stores and has always enjoyed sewing and thinking outside the fashion box.  So she decided to pair her love of thrift stores and creating to make unique clothing! read more

June Jacobs: The Trifecta of Skincare?!

Yup, I’ve got some more skincare for you!  Can you tell I am really working hard on this anti-aging thing?!  Today, I’m reviewing products from June Jacobs, which is the sister company to Peter Thomas Roth.  They’ve potentially created the trifecta of skincare for you: Lip Renewal SPF 50, Protective Moisturizer SPF 30, and Rapid Repair Healing Cream.June Jacobs: The Trifecta of Skincare?!

June Jacobs Lip Renewal SPF 50

This balm had me at SPF 50.  I have damaged my lips so much over the years by skipping sun protection.  I learned my lesson the hard way in The Bahamas when I woke up with a humungous lip!!  Turns out I had sunburn, but I looked like I had gotten stung by a bee!  No thank you! read more
