Sparkle & Shine

Location: San Jose, CA

Outfit Details:

Top: The sweetheart cut is one of my favorite top styles. This cute top is actually a shaping dress from Forever 21's lingerie section, but I prefer to pair it with skirts. 

Steal: Out From Under Hook & Eye Bustier Top from Urban Outfitters, see here.
Splurge: Joel Peplum Bustier by BCBG Maxazria, see here.

Skirt: Sequin Skater Skirt by Topshop, here. {old}

Steal: Crank Up the Lace Blue Lace Skirt by Lulu's, see here.
Splurge: Blue Contrast Hem Skater Skirt by Topshop, see here.

Shoes: These blue sandal are by Ivanka Trump, here is her website.

Steal: Tyronica from Aldo, see here.
Splurge: 'Nedra' Sandal by Vince Camuto, available at Nordstrom, see here.

Necklace: I got this from Nordstrom from their BP section (their Juniors section) for only $8! I just got it last week so it might still be available. Online they only have the ivory color, here. For cute statement jewelry, I recommend checking out the BP section because it is more reasonably priced than the regular jewelry section.

Steal: Gemstone Drop Statement Necklace from Arden B, see here or the one from Nordstrom, see here.
Splurge: Bubble Necklace from J.Crew, see here.

Bag: Logo Clutch by Tory Burch, see here.

  2. To promote their new drink, Starbucks is giving away free tall Hazelnut or Caramel Macchiato. It is only in select stores, so you might want to call before you go in. The way you get the coupon is to ask the barista for the Free Starbucks Small Hazelnut or Caramel Macchiato coupon. This promotion is running until the end of the month.
