Dare to Sparkle

It’s the weekend, people! Time to put on your party pants- no, but seriously. When I’m shopping for statement pieces, I focus on two main categories- the classic investment pieces and the less expensive trendy pieces. I am always in search of that simple silhouette with a little bit of a classy yet edgy touch.

To my surprise, I found my first 100% real leather jacket while I was on vacation in Florida two weeks ago. I purchased a leather moto jacket in Florida? I know it’s odd but it totally worked in my favor since the weather was chillier than expected. This burgundy baby was originally $398 and I scored it for just under $200. Honestly this is not how much I would usually like to spend on something, but hey it was totally worth it (and I was in vacation mode).

Ok here’s the best part of this post- these sparkly shimmering bell bottom pants! Basically I ran into Zara and immediately grabbed them off the rack to my left. I didn’t even check the price. They were originally $49.90 and were marked down to- wait for it- $9.99!?! You should have seen my face at that register. Not only are they super stylish and exciting, but they literally fit like a glove and shape all of your curves perfectly. And yes, you are allowed to wear your favorite sparkling things after New Years.
