Steal her Style Ariana Grande pt. 2

Last summer I was introduced to a darling little site called ‘Steal her Style.’  It’s pretty much what’d you’d expect, so there’s no need to explain.  But it’s really fun to look at when you’re crushing on a celebrities wardrobe.

That’s when Ariana Grande comes in.  While she also has some ridiculously crazy outfits, which celebrities don’t?  But most of the time her clothes are actually quite cute.  So, I tried to pick out some pictures you can actually try to recreate.  Not her footy pajamas ( which you should honestly never wear out the house), and other things like that.

All photos came from Steal her Style.  I don’t own any of the pictures above or below.

Ariana has somewhat lost the nerdy style she had last summer, but she’s a LOT more famous now, so it make sense.  I really do love the dress, which seems just a teeny weeny bit geeky, and the simplicity, yet creativeness of this outfit.

Usually I’ve been told to never wear all black.  I do it anyway, but usually I add colorful jewelry to tone it down.  Or is it up?  Back to the point, I didn’t think it was possible to look girly in all black, but apparently it is.

Instead of nerdy, I think Ariana Grande has a more vintage/retro style going on.  In black and white this whole thing seems to be happening in the poodle skirt time period. And if you know even the slightest things about me, you’d know I love and cannot resist polka dots.  So that pretty much explains just about everything.

Once again, more nostalgia for me.  I’ve always loved platform boots, but I would have never thought of wearing it with a sweater.  Let alone a sweater dress.  But I guess that’s Ariana Grande for you.  She must think pants are over-rated.

This shirt is perfect for me.  If you ask anyone I know, you’d find out that I almost never stop talking.  But if  had to give out 2nd place to nything in the outfit, it would have to be the bag.  I’d like it more in a darker pink color, instead of the almost cream, but overall it’s a really nice bag which would fit all the many things I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO CARRY AROUND;)

Lessons from Lauren: How to Shop (Part 2)

Chere Readers,

I found the Lauren Conrad book my mother happened to buy a long time ago and thought I should do something on my blog with it.  I wanted it to be fairly simple and easy, and last for at least a week.  This actually lasted for months because I said I would continue it, but that never actually happened until now.  Here’s the first lesson.  What I happened to be doing is summing up the tips taught in this book and posting it here.

 

Disclaimer:  I take no credit for the lessons taught in this series.  All of these tips and tricks came from Lauren Conrad in Lauren Conrad Style.


Have a Plan

The Handbag Obsession… My Flat in London

Chere Readers,

I know that having two series at once is a bad idea.  Sounds stressful right?!?!  But actually, if I have no clue what to post I can just do a series post, and Voila!  Instant content.  I can even copy the first post, and do even less work.  But anyway, I spend quite a lot of time looking at bags in stores, even wristlets.  So I have decided to do something like my Kate Spade series, and occasionally post 1 new handbag every one!

The Westminister Small Top Handle in pink and black!

106739 106736

The black is for those of us who want something more timeless, they’re more conservative.  Well, me, being a tad bit girly all, want the pink bag.  Either way, there both a small little bag with diamond stitching.  My favorite part is the diamond.  No the bow.  Oh, I can’t decide.  The only thing wrong with it is, I wish the whole strap was a chain.  The sacrifices a girl must make…

What are you waiting for?  Splurge and buy this bag for the first day of spring, March 20th! You know you want it…

Kate Spade and Paris! How Can I Resist?!?! Part 3

Chere Readers,

You all know that I love Paris.  I dream of going to there everyday.  And you know I absolutely love Kate Spade.  So of course a Paris inspired line of Kate Spade stuff is right up my alley.

But to spare you my long rants I have decided to pick one picture a day of any new Kate Spade Paris themed things I see until Valentines Day.  Possibly with another post. Today we have the Gable Dress.

Now don’t be fooled.  I wasn’t sure if gable was a real word.  But apparently it means the part of a wall that encloses the end of a pitched roof.  Thanks Google!  I’m absolutely sure that this dress has nothing to do with what a gable actually is.  But anyways… I adore how it’s so ‘petite chic.’  It’s perfectly Parisian! It would go perfectly with the shoes in the collage also by Kate Spade in the Ooh La La Collection.  If you’re willing to crack out over $700 for the outfit.

Kate Spade and Paris! How Can I Resist?!?! Part 2

Chere Readers,

You all know that I love Paris.  I dream of going to there everyday.  And you know I absolutely love Kate Spade.  So of course a Paris inspired line of Kate Spade stuff is right up my alley.

But to spare you my long rants I have decided to pick one picture a day of any new Kate Spade Paris themed things I see until Valentines Day.  (Enjoy it while it lasts).  They will  Possibly definitely be with another post.  At least for now 😉  Today we have the Charming Charm Bracelet.

I love charm bracelets almost as much as I now love Harry Potter.  (See blog header), perhaps even more.  I have a two simple Alex and Ani ones I got for Christmas, but you can’t add or take off charms.  But I’m getting one for my sixteenth birthday(so far away).  Anyhow, I think all the little charms are adorable.  There’s a bow, a key, an envelope and note, a lock a spade (hah hah hah, very funny), and a perfume.

Now don’t be fooled.  The name is misleading, but this purse is in fact a part of the OOH LA LA Collection.  I really like how it has such a girly chic feel.  The bright pink heart outline and black bow really make the bland monochrome text a Kate Spade bag.

3 Chic Ways to Dress for Valentines Day

Chere Readers,

Some readers may feel no need to dress in any special way, on the day that is known as Valentines day.  I can’t dress all that fancy.  Where I live I might freeze wearing some of these looks.

But for those of you with what you who live in semi-warm places during the middle of February, I have  been a dear and prepared something wonderfully helpful for those frantic about what to wear.  Voila!  Three Polyvore sets to help you through it.

 

Valentines Day Love

Pair a casual white tee with your cutest red skirt (preferably polka dots)  and  your most darling heart jewelry.  To tone down this outfit add a neutral white cross body (any type of white bag is fine though).  Top it all off with a some nerdy glasses.  Oh…  And maybe a statement heart headband.

Be Mine Valentine

If you’re not a fan of all that red and frills, and overall just plain girly-ness.  I’d grab a black handbag/cross body/tote (you get the point) with matching flats.  You’ll need to make this outfit not so boring now.  So get your brightest red skinny jeans (pink is divine too).  But don’t forget the white shirt with black polka dots!  Everyone knows I’m obsessed with polka dots now, so why not?  Top it all off with a gold chain bracelet, for a day at work or school.  Make sure to remember those Valentines you know you secretly still give out, (to those close to you of course).   And that secret admirer note you slip in that “special someone’s locker.

 

Love is in the Air

Alert!  Alert!  This involves the art of being a geek!  Pair a white graphic tee and a red and white cardigan (maybe even…. well, you know what goes there).  I added a black pair of these marvelous shoes and dark jeans. Nerdy glasses looked nice with the nerdy cardigan so why not?  And of course it’s Valentines day (theoretically), so flowers galore!

 

I hope you have a wonderful valentines day!  Comment down below which look you like best.  Or tell us if you have an unhealthy obsession with polka too. (We won’t judge).  And if you wear something like this leave a link to the picture down below.
