Crystal Clear

Bing Bang Clear Crystal Shard Studs Duet

I’m a huge fan of asymmetry. Whether reflected in an oragami hemline, an accessory or a tousled hairstyle, it can make a look much more interesting. Don’t get me wrong, symmetry is beautiful too (I’m addicted to center-parted ponytails and freak if my eyebrows look uneven), but it’s fun to mix it up with something off-kilter once in a while.

This earring duet by Bing Bang is an awesome example. I’ve said it before: it doesn’t get better than this brand for affordable, on-trend accessories. There’s something about the mismatched crystal shards that’s modern and cool. Like classic elegance gets a subtle ass kicking and is turned edgy because the studs aren’t the same. They’re a fab look for day (no doubt you’ll be sparkling while you grab your morning Starbucks with coconut milk), but they’re spectacular for night (grabbing drinks, glowy dinners, la-di-da).

They also come in jet black crystal, but I’m partial to the clear pair above.

I hope everyone’s Monday is off to a great start (if that’s even possible?)!

How gorgeous is this clutch by Azalea? I love the pearlescent look, color combination and lateral grooves. It also has an attachable gold chain shoulder strap. You’d think it would break the bank, but it’s a reasonable $79. Such a special piece.

On the clothing front, there’s something about a body-con midi dress that makes it cool for any occasion. Throw on a pair of pointy ankle boots and an oversized coat—the topper above is only $69.95!—and you’re good to go with little effort.

Last but not least, the Zerouv sunnies featured are on sale! right now for $10.99. A major steal!

As always, just click on each item directly to shop! Happy Friday, loves!

Think about the things that make you feel cozy. A fuzzy pair of socks, the knit blanket you claim each time you sit on the couch, fresh flowers, an almond milk latte with cinnamon (my personal fave). That’s what this Cynthia Vincent jacket reminds me of. It’s the clothing equivalent of all things warm and toasty, and it makes me feel like I can tackle the world in comfort and style. It also brings chocolate chip cookies to mind (an added bonus).

This jacket is another example of an exciting neutral. That is, it’s ‘friends’ with most other items in my closet, but it’s eye-catching. Different. A recipe for automatic cool. It’s one of the best pieces I’ve acquired all season, and by some miracle, it’s on sale! for more than half off. I love shopping discounts when designers move their winter inventory to make room for spring.

I’m wearing a size P, and it fits perfectly. I didn’t notice much of a difference between the P and S sizes, but the arms were slightly shorter in the petite version, which suited me.

Cynthia Vincent faux fur chubby (on sale!), Theory shirt (similar style here and here), Madewell high-rise ‘Skinny Skinny’ jeans, A.J. Morgan sunnies (similar style here), Danielle Nicole ‘Alexa’ tote (same style in black and gold on sale!), Nine West ‘Callen’ pumps, Madewell band ring (reviewed by me here) and Bing Bang ‘Vivienne’ spike studs (a forever favorite).
