Fabulous Shoes Make for a Fabulous Closet

As we know, a fabulous closet is full of beautiful shoes! Every girl's dream! Well, you don't have to spend a ton to have a fabulous closet. These Calvin Klein Diema calf hair kitten heels are perfect for work and beyond! I had been looking for these for a long time before I found them on Since purchasing them, I knew that they would be forever a staple in my wardrobe. They were a bit of a splurge for me, but since I walk around a lot at work, I need sensible shoes as well as ones that aren't going to fall apart.

Trendy items come and go, but if you are going to splurge, I'd suggest splurging on a fabulous pair of leopard heels. They go with just about anything and will take you through all of the seasons! The Calvin Klein Diems are no longer available at, but I have linked several similar styles below. Sam Edelman, one of my favorite brands, has a very similar kitten heel style that is very classy. who else agrees that a fabulous pair of leopard heels is a must for fall. and a wardrobe staple that you will wear for years.  Leopard is truly a classic and a neutral that pairs so well with almost anything!

I scored this fabulous leopard rug at Ross Dress for Less and it has been one of my favorites and is at the entry of of closet. My love for leopard is never-ending.

Dramatic Necklace

If you are looking for that piece that amps up your basic ensemble and says that you are a strong, powerful woman without saying it?! Then look no further than the Dramatic Pearl and Fringe bib necklace from Bib Jewelry. This fabulous piece is quite a statement and I love it paired with all black. It really stands out!

Wearing a bold accessory can really take your look to a whole new level. It is also a great way to get the most out of your wardrobe because your accessories can be switched up to create new looks. 

I am wearing colorful heels to break up all of the black, but any animal print heels would be just as fabulous!

My Birthday!

I had such a fabulous day today! Getting older isn't so bad when you're surrounded by amazing people! It is sometimes hard to accept growing older, but it is actually a privilege denied by many. Turning 26 isn't too bad. I have so much to look forward to and so much more to accomplish! 

 Of course, I had to celebrate my birthday in style with this bright pink blouse from Marshalls. My boyfriend was so sweet and got me these amazing pink roses, which are such a beautiful color pink! My parents, siblings, friends, and co-workers are amazing too!

Leopard Flats

Leopard Flats. Talk about a staple in a woman's wardrobe! They can be paired with ripped jeans and a simple black tee for a chic casual look or dressed up when worn with a little black dress. There are so many possibilities with leopard. I think that might be why it's my favorite neutral. It can literally be paired with anything and being glamour and sophistication, whether it be your outfit or room.

These are my favorite leopard flats I have found so far. They are the ElusionL flat by Steve Madden. Seriously, they are the most comfortable flats!! I love the calf hair detail and they are a little pricey for flats, but they are so worth it. I've worn mine several times and they are really great quality.

Colors of the Rainbow

Some days you just need to create your own sunshine or in my case rainbow. These heels have been one of my favorites since I purchased them early this summer. I love the watercolor design and that they pretty much go with anything. They are a perfect 2" heel for work or a night out.

This new statement necklace is simply fabulous! I recently bought this one at Charming Charlie and have been obsessed ever since. This statement necklace has an ombré effect that is a unique touch. I love the pop it gives against a black top! I love this pairing of black and teal with cobalt blue.

Hot Pink & Fabulous

Every time I wear this skirt, I always get compliments. It is because it's so noticable with it being pretty much neon pink. I love pairing it with my leopard heels and a black tee and belt. The skirt is a nice rayon/nylon/spandex blend and is super comfortable, especially for an entire workday. 

This color combo to me, is classic. Black and leopard with a pop of pink, I mean.., you can't go wrong! Pink is such an uplifting color for me and when I wear it, I feel happy.

Blush & Bordeaux

So you've seen the black lace version of this skirt on here before. It's one of my favorite pieces! I just had to go back to Forever 21 and get this wine-colored one too! This will be a perfect staple too, come fall! The quality of the lace on this skirt is amazing! Mixing this color with black and blush provides for a sophisticated look. Pearls are ladylike and classy,  but since I like my pearls in tons of layers and chunk-i-fied, they make a big statement for this outfit.

Leopard is a fabulous neutral paired with bordeaux and blush. The mix of textures in my outfit-from my calf hair heels to my intricate lace skirt, to the smooth pearls, all harmonize and provide interest. My outfit is relatively simple, but the details are what makes it fabulous! What details are your favorite in an outfit?

Red Red Lips!

Red Lips! What a classic! Red lips can really make a statement and brighten your whole face and complete your look! My favorite is a red lip with an LBD or all black ensemble with leopard accents. It's a look that will stand the test of time and is always chic.

There are several red lipsticks that I have on my list of favorites, but the one I'm wearing today is Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice. It's really the perfect red color for everyone. I love that it's an orangey-red. This lipstick is a creme, do it glides on smoothly and it is super pigmented. The best part is that this lipstick is around $5-$7 at Target, Walmart, and Walgreens, etc. You can still look fabulous without wearing a high-end expensive lipstick. Did you know that it has been around since 1952 and is one of the classic red shades in the Revlon collection? I don't think this shade is going anywhere! Have you tried this lipstick and loved it too?!

Layered Necklaces

Create a real statement and layer some statement necklaces! I love this gold bead and pearl cluster necklace I purchased from Target. It has definately been one of my favorite pieces. I layer it with my other strands of pearls, but today I layered it with this green and gold beaded necklace and it looks fabulous. I love layering different necklaces. It can make a necklace feel new again when layered with a different necklace and give you a whole different look.

Mixed Metals & Stripes

I love a good piece of jewelry that mixes metals. In this case it's this fabulous necklace I got from Charming Charlie. It mixes silver, gold, and gun metal with a variety of chain sizes. I love the varying chain styles because they provide for an interesting necklace. It's great when one piece of jewelry mixes the metals for you, but if not go ahead and mix your own pieces. I've layered on a gold bracelet and a silver bracelet with another great piece from Charming Charlie-this unique bangle. The mix really gives your outfit dimension.

I'm wearing a draped blouse I recently scored on sale at Target for $16, regularly $23. I love the flow of it and loved it so well I bought it in the of color and coral too. 

Leopard and stripes has to be the best print-mixed combination. My fabulous leopard kitten heels add the perfect classy touch! In my last post, I shared the lipstick im wearing, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in matte Sultry Samba.
