Black Peplum, Leopard, & Giveaway (closed)

I have been obsessing over tulle skirts the past few weeks and searching day & night for the perfect one. I think they are a going to be a great transitional piece for Fall/Winter and be a super glamorous piece for the upcoming Holiday season. Now, I just have to find the perfect one... I really like the super puffy ones like the one that Wendy from Wendy's Lookbook is wearing here.  I am considering doing a DIY tulle skirt so I can get the exact color, length, and fullness I want, but haven't figured out if I can actually pull that off. :)

I have a new giveaway that begins today with jewelry brand YuniKelley. They make really pretty jewelry and their bracelets are designed specifically for small wrists. So if you have ever gone to a store, tried on a bracelet and wondered why it looked so big on your wrist, you should check out the bracelets that YuniKelley makes because they will actually fit small wrists! I am wearing her gold & crystal bangle in this outfit in a size xs and she is generously offering one of you a $25 gift certificate and free shipping on anything from her store! If you want to shop before the giveaway ends, she is offering you guys 20% off with promo code "CONNIETANG."

  2. Hi Connie,

    I really like the red and crystal statement necklace. It has a cute design that resembles little children and the color is just gorgeous. A color that will work well with just about any solid color outfits that I have.


  3. Hi Connie,

    Cant' wait to see your DIY tulle skirt!! :)

    On YuniKelley's website, I really like the Rose Gold Pave Ball Clasp Bracelet piece. As a graduation gift from college, my mother gave me a gold necklace with a gold pave ball in the center. It's a fancy piece (and heavy too), so I haven't been able to wear it much. With the Rose Gold Pave Ball Clasp Bracelet, I will be able to match it with the necklace my mother gave me.

    Thank you for sharing this awesome jewelry brand & posting this giveaway!

  6. Loving the peplum top, look so soft & comfy and I like how it drapes! This is an awesome giveaway... I always have a problem with bracelets being too big on my wrists! I really like the gold crystal pave link bracelet, it looks like it can be paired with both rose gold and regular gold, which is a versatility I look for since I have jewelry of both colors! -

    Thank you!

  7. Loved your blog because it reminds me of Wendy's Lookbook! I got excited when I realized you go on her blog too! Please do a DIY tulle skirt! I want to see how it turns out. (:

    Also, thank you for hosting the giveaway! I love the Original Gold Chain Bracelet with Toggle Clasp! It's simple yet elegant at the same time. I love how you can wear just a tank top, cardigan, jeans and the bracelet will match! Or the bracelet can be worn formally with a nice black dress!
