10 Popular Items You Bought in 2020

Really excited to review these items and if they’re still available, I will link!

  1. Monogrammed Wallet – How absolutely fabulous is this?! I found this company on Etsy and want to order more items from them! They’re based in the UK so shipping takes about 4 weeks. I got the pink wallet and get SO many compliments. Shop it HERE
  2. Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra – I think this one goes without saying much. Being bigger busted, this is really the only bra that keeps everything in place. Shop it HERE
  3. Knit Set from Anthropologie – This was one of the most popular items this year and I hope that you are LOVING it! These pieces can definitely be worn as separates too, so I’ll continue to share ways to wear it! Shop it HERE
  4. Good American Crop Jeans – There are four places that I shop for jeans and Good American are honestly the best quality. I’ve had some pairs for over 5 years! If you’re looking to not pay full price, Nordstrom Rack has some styles regularly. Shop these HERE
  5. Rachel Parcell Smocked Dress – Y’all loved this dress and I did not sleep on this one as I got it in the Mauve and in the Leopard. Fits great and I think it’s a style you can wear year round! No longer available
  6. The Ever Popular Printed Anthro Top – For two years running, this top has been IT! Thank goodness it’s continually restocked LOL I’ve bought it in three prints and wear it all the time – it’s colorful and full of pattern play! Shop it HERE
  7. The Knee High Boots That FIT!!!! – Best find of 2020?! Probably the OTK boots from Target that actually fit my thick calves and y’all’s too – I got so many messages that they are magic and I definitely agree! Shop them HERE
  8. Flowy Dress – I think we were all shopping more affordably this year and H&M was a huge WIN for me (although that shipping was frustrating, am I right?!). I will still be all about an easy, afforable, and flowy dress going into Spring and Summer! Still available in stripes HERE
  9. OTS Sweater – Another great affordable find! H&M does a great sweater selection! Still available HERE
  10. Plush Blanket – We spent A LOT more time at home this year and a majority of time we were in athleisure, am I right? I can’t decide between my Barefoot Dreams Blanket and this one, which one I like more. Both are so cozy, this one being a more affordable option. Shop it HERE

Thank you for supporting this space here, I hope it’s brought you joy, a laugh, and some great pieces for your closet!

A Love Story with Julie Vos

Our latest pieces were gifted by Julie Vos, opinions my own

Hey friends and happy Saturday!

IMG_3078

Y’all know I’m an accessories queen and I can’t help myself when I see a pretty bauble. I’ve been OBSESSED with Julie Vos jewelry for years and started adding small pieces to my collection a little over five years ago (I would scour the website for hours during sales). I first heard of JV through my mom who started asking for pieces for her birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas. As my dad’s right hand gal for all things presents (otherwise known as his secret shopper), my mom has built quite the collection over the years. We even gift my Gram pieces, too. Julie Vos pieces are honestly amazing, from the dainty to the statement making, they’re quality pieces that you’ll treasure for always!

I’m not sure if you remember that my mom and I got to meet Julie and her team in NYC in December and I’m honestly so grateful to have built a great relationship with a great brand. We’re doing an IGTV over on Instagram this afternoon sharing our fave Julie pieces and our newest additions. Be sure to check it out!

Kendra Gives Back: Kids Meals Houston

With everything that is going on, I wanted to do something to give back to my community. So, friends, I’m partnering with Kendra Scott to get some money and food back to Houston!

For the next 48 hours, 20% of proceeds will go directly to Kids Meal Houston. Every day in Houston, 1 in 4 preschool-aged children live unsure of their next meal and this group helps make sure that Houston kids get a meal. I’ve personally packed lunches and decorated sacks for these kiddos. It’s a great organization and I’d be so happy if you joined me by shopping for a cause.

How it works: Use promo code GIVEBACK7135 at checkout! It’s that simple!

Plus, this includes fine jewelry!

The Special Stack

The Special Stack

Hey friends and happy Thursday!

I always do a lot (okay, the majority) of posts about my outfits, but I’ve never highlighted my arm candy/wrist stack for y’all or shared why these pieces mean so much to me!

I have loved David Yurman jewelry since forever. I liked the mix of the silver cable with the gold accents with pearls or different colored stones. My mom inspired and started my love for DY and I remember getting my first double x crossover ring and couldn’t believe I now had this beautiful ring in my possession! The collection has grown over the years and they commemorate special moments in my life

WS (130 of 242)

The ring was a Christmas present from my parents. The first bracelet was my grad school graduation gift from my mom dad, the x crossover bracelet was my latest addition (a treat to myself for my last promotion), the black onyx bracelet I bought myself after saving my money in grad school (plus some Christmas money from my Gram), and the amethyst bracelet was my 30th birthday gift from my parents and my siblings. I feel very lucky and am reminded of all the things I’ve done over the last decade. I do clean these with a dust rag and make sure not to rub on the stones. It’s kept the older ones in great condition!

Do you have any special jewelry that you’ve been collecting over the years? I’d love to hear!

Bag Lady

Hey y’all and thanks for stopping by!

Our feeds are so filled with designer bags these days that I thought I’d share my faves for every budget! Some of these bags (3/4) I most certainly didn’t pay full price for (SCORE)!

Under $1200

 

dsc04839

Gucci Disco Bag (shop here and here) – I LOVE this bag! It’s easy, casual, and perfect for a weekend grabbing some beers and crawfish. I got mine at Neiman Marcus on major sale (like under $600 major sale)! Neiman’s does a bag sale a few times a year and I just happened upon it.

$1200 – $1700

pearl-botanical-80-of-94

Saint Laurent Monogram Leather Clutch (shop here) – This bag was also on sale for a limited time when I scooped it up. I love the pebbled leather and the gold monogram. I always get a ton of compliments whenever I use it. I mostly use it for dressier occasions. If I’m not using it, I keep it in its duster bag to keep it in like new condition.

IMG_9788

Saint Laurent Monogram Matelasse Leather Chain Wallet (shop here) – This bag took me a while to find. The washed light pink with gold hardware is a quick sell. The silver hardware is currently still in stock and I’ve linked it above. The chain is removable so it can be used as a clutch, as well. This pretty bag made my giddy with joy as I unboxed it!

$2000+

7516815776_img_0257

Gucci GG Marmont Small Pearly Shoulder Bag (shop here) – This has been my latest addition and priciest purchase to date. However, I did get it while it was 20% off for a limited time. I feel like the luckiest duck that I stumbled across this one in my local Neiman’s. This bag goes with absolutely everything, from ripped denim to lacy frocks. It has been a staple in my wardrobe.

I hope I’ve given you a little insight on how and where to spend your hard-earned pennies when you’re ready to take the plunge into designer bags. I’ve been working on this collection over the past several years and love each one individually for different reasons. You know when you get a dog and people say the pup picked you, not the other way around? I feel like it’s the same way for bags.

Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!

As always, thank you for reading!

Xoxo, Liza
