Stripes, Lace Up Heels, and International Giveaway! (closed)

I am loving the lace-up heels trend right now! I got these gorgeous black Chinese Laundry heels from DailyLook (click on that link to get 20% off your first purchase!) and have to stop myself from styling with them again and again in my upcoming blog posts. 

I hope everyone has a nice weekend! I'm flying down to San Diego to help my boyfriend's little sister move into her new apartment. She is moving down there to attend UC San Diego and will be missed dearly. 

I have a fun new giveaway that starts today- it is with Polette, a company that is revolutionizing the way we purchase eyewear! The best thing about Polette is that they make trendy glasses/sunglasses with the option of adding corrective lenses to each of their unique frames. Polette is so generous to allow me to host a giveaway where one of my lucky readers will have the opportunity to choose any pair of glasses or sunglasses with/without prescriptions and/or customized tinted lenses. Since they make eyewear for both men and women- anyone can enter this giveaway!

I apologize for not styling this post with my Polette sunglasses, but you can refer to these two past posts (here and here) for how I styled with my Polette! Good luck!

    They have an amazing product range at Polette. But I would go for the Soho Black sunnies. They are perfect for fall and I could easily mix them to different outfits.

    Fingers are crossed.
