Favorite Fashion Friday #67

 photo FavoriteFashionFridaylogo_zpsf66ade9e.jpg

I  love outfits that make a bold statement, but don't make you look like a crazy person.  And The Real Arnolds crafts that balance so perfectly.  Pattern mixing AND a statement necklace?!  AND you could wear this to the office?!  Perfection.

Look What I Got: GemSugar Giveaway

I am super duper excited to introduce you to Gemsugar today!  I'll let the site's creator Angel give you the deets.  (Also, if you have time, search my blog for the word "super," apparently I use is A LOT).

Hi everyone! I'm Angel and I'm the "brains behind the sparkle" of Gemsugar.com. Until recently, I worked in retail during college and would frequently have customers ask where I got whatever jewelry I happened to be wearing. This gave me the idea to start my own site selling jewelry at prices I would be willing and able to pay as a college student working part-time. With the positive reception of my site, I've recently expanded to include a monthly subscription service called GemBox. It is $24.99/month and includes 2-3 jewelry pieces based on style questions answered at sign-up. Want to talk jewelry or need help picking out a piece? You can catch up with me on our social networking sites or at angel@gemsugar.com.

If you can't tell from these photos, I am wearing a crop top.  Yep, something I never thought I would do.  However, this is the only way I would ever wear a crop top...no exposed belly.  I am in my thirties, there is no reason my belly should be exposed.  I think pairing a crop top with a high waisted skirt is the way to go.  You stay modest and appropriate and it's like killing 2 trends with one stone?  That turn of phrase doesn't actually work,but I think you get my point.

October Julep Maven Review

Oct 14 Maven Box 1 Oct 14 Julep Oct 14 Julep Box 2

  • Nail Polish in Nancy (silver sage metallic) ($14.00): I am in love with this color.  It is so perfect for fall.  It goes on really smooth for a glittery metallic.  And you can almost get away with just one coat.  So, I think it's a perfect last minute manicure or pedicure color.
  • Nail Polish in Margarita (deep purple creme) ($14.00): This color is a really nice compliment to the sagey green metallic.  I can definitely see pairing these two together with a statement nail in Nancy.  This color is a bit thin and goes on streaky in the first coat, but a second coat solves that problem
  • Night Shift Sleeping Mask ($34.00): According to Julep this is "A reparative moisture mask that does the heavy lifting while you’re fast asleep so you wake up to a brighter, smoother, firmer complexion." And it "Reaches deep to stimulate cell turnover and renewal."  I don't think it's really actually doing this at night.  It's more like lotion that you leave on your face rather than a mask.  I was worried that I would just wake up to a face full of zits, but my skin was actually just really soft with no additional zits.  Saying "zit-free" would be misleading.  It's the sock with vaseline in it for your face.  (Of course you've dealt with your winter heel cracking by wearing socks and vaseline to bed).

The Julep Deets
  • $20.00 per month (but, you can skip a month if you need to!).
  • You get to preview your Maven box each month and decide which one you want
  • Each box contains 2 full-sized Julep polishes (retail: $15 each) plus one full sized Julep beauty product (ranging $15 to $40). 
  • You can earn credits for referrals and other activities!
**Full Disclosure: Julep Maven is a monthly beauty subscription service.  I am in no way affiliated with Julep and have not received any compensation for this post.  All opinions are 100% mine.
