Paula Bianco

I don't know about you, but I'm super cold right now and the only thing that is keeping me somewhat warm in my office today (besides my jacket) is my Paula Bianco scarf. I first found out about these amazing warm and trendy scarves last winter from a friend of mine who works at a boutique. I remember her calling me and saying "you will die, we got amazing infinity scarfs in just like the Kardashians" (confession: I have a secret obsession with the Kardashians, don't judge!) Immediately I hoped in the car and went to check them out. While they are the cheapest pieces of fabrics, I knew I had to get my hands on one. For my first scarf I was able to find one about 20 bucks cheaper than the original price of $85.00. As so my second scarf, I got super lucky and got my hands one for $20 bucks! Hautelook was having an AMAZING deal and I knew I had to grab another one while I could.

My first scarf looks it exactly like this one, but instead of olive green it's black.
And just like Kourtney, I got the beautiful olive green.

If you are a big sale site watcher, keep an eye out for Paula Bianco to pop up! They have great deals on these awesome scarves and they do not need to be overlooked!!!

Up until recently, my shopping habits were pretty much the same every time I went shopping. Naturally I would hit Forever 21, H&M, Old Navy, Target, and a few other stores here and there to get the looks I wanted. I'm a huge bang for my buck girl and I believe if you look hard enough you can find designer looks for cheaper prices.

About two months ago my shopping took a slight turn towards a great little boutique based in Cameron Village called Fab'rik. Tucked between a few other clothing and accessories boutiques, Fab'rik is one location of many nationwide. Along with the great clothing options available at the store, Fab'rik has AMAZING accessories that are so on trend right now and they will not break your bank account when buying them.

My recent purchases have been these amazing taupe studded loafers...

as well as this awesome Hermes Birkin inspired bag...

Not only is this store amazing, but the people who work there are total sweethearts! As well as super creative. The dress in the picture above was designed and made by one of the girls who works in the store. Look out for a post later this week about Fab'riks own Amy Gray and her clothing line GrayLee Designs.

Sheila Fajl

One my best purchases in the jewelry department to date is a pair of hoops made by Sheila Fajl. I was a freshman in college and a local boutique here in Raleigh, Gena Chandler started promoting these hoops. So I headed right on over to Gena Chandler, picked up my first pair and I've been hooked ever since.

I first started out with a gold pair...
Then decided I HAD to have a silver pair....

and to end my collection, I bought a pair of rose gold hoops!

While you probably think that buying three different pairs of these hoops is a bit much, I guarantee you that I wear these earrings EVERYDAY.

I highly recommend you get a pair! They can make an outfit pop, no matter what you are wearing! 

{Available in brushed gold, silver, or rose gold. As well as shiny gold, silver, or rose gold}

Plum Street Prints

Today I decided to talk to you about a awesome company that has become of my recent obsessions when it comes to giving your phone a facelift and that company is Plum Street Prints. Much like my obsession with handbags, I also LOVE buying cute cell phone cases.

I stumbled upon Plum Street Prints a few weeks ago via Blair Eadie's Instagram and immediately knew I had to find out where she got this awesome phone case.  Much to my happiness, after commenting under the photo, the girls of Plum Street Prints responded to my question and it was love at first sight for me!!

Here are three of my favorite covers from there site:

Not only are these prints super cute, but the service from Plum Street Prints is amazing! Within an hour of ordering my personalized case, I was approving my case and it was shipped out to me the next day!

I'm a sucker for Chevron, so I of course went with the top pattern:

Get your Plum Street Prints case today! Now available for Iphone5!

Handbag Of The Week

It's no secret to most people that know me, that I am a handbag fanatic. In honor of my obsession, I've decided to start a Handbag of the Week series that allows you to get a first look at my obsessions! This week my beautiful crafted purse is brought to you by Forever 21. As soon as I saw this bag, I feel in LOVE. I've been swooning over a similar bag by Valentino, but I knew I was never going to take the plunge due to my lack of funds in my bank account. This Forever 21 bag fills the void perfectly.
Valentino Shopping Bag: $2,195.00

Forever 21: $32.80
- Marked at a perfect price point, this bag will be definitely be a great bag through the winter.
