Something Old, Something New

Seeing Grey

In this post I am wearing one of my favorite style trends - Monochromatic.  I dress in monochrome at least once each week.  I feel that a single uninterrupted look is chic and figure flattering.  Wearing separate pieces of the same hue, but different textures adds depth and dimension to an outfit as well.  So try it guys.  Dressing in bold, fun prints is great, but being simple can make a statement just the same.

Something New - Zara Print Dress

Happy Sunday lovelies!!!  in this post, I am wearing a dress from one of my favorite stores ZARA.  I'm sure you guys know by now that I love prints, so I was naturally drawn to this dress.  The shape and fit is very flattering on me, plus it's super comfy and easy to wear.  Another thing I love about this dress is that it transitions through the seasons.  During the winter I can simply add fun colored tights and chunky scarves, and when spring and summer rolls around I can opt for sandals and bright accessories.

In this post I am also wearing a trial pair of glasses from Warby Parker.  I am participating in the At-Home try on because I am desperately seeking cool, new frames.  The name of this particular frame is Ripley (please leave a comment below rating these frames...I would love the feedback).  In my upcoming post I will be sporting the other frames.  It was very important for me to see all of them styled with my wardrobe.  Functionality is most important when it come to something like glasses especially because I tend to wear my glasses just about daily.

Contrasting with Lilac

Happy Monday guys!!!  I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits from last week with you all.

I wore this outfit to work, and I actually felt that I was arguably within the constraints of the office dress code.  Although most of my close friends and family don't believe I own work clothes, but I do - See :)

My Something New is this black and white shirt I bought at ZARA for merely pennies.  I just had to have it because I thought the material was so unique.  I guess you could describe it as scuba/neoprene.  The lilac skirt is my Something Old, I picked it up at H&M sometime ago.

The day after a New Year's turn up I wanted to do absolutely nothing but relax and be super comfy.   We went out for a few errands, and I wore a super cute over-sized F21 cardigan and my new pair of Banana Republic jeans.

I accessorized my look with a thrifted necklace and metallic rings from JoJo Rings.  JoJo Rings are super unique because the rings are all one of kind, and made from 100% recycled keys.  The company also donates to charity for every ring sold.  JoJo Rings and Something Old, Something New share similar missions of revamping something old (old keys), into something new - refurbished rings.

I would love to give you guys one of these amazing rings.  Leave a comment below, and I will randomly pick a lucky reader to have one of these awesome rings.

Emjoi Micro Pedi

In this post, I would like to share with you all a wonderful product that I have recently been introduced to.  The Micro-Pedi by Emjoi has been my go to home pedicure device since receiving my trial sample in the mail a few weeks ago.  With this product, I have been to achieve flawlessly smooth and soft feet and heels that mirror salon quality work in the comfort of my home.

To help you guys visualize the Micro Pedi, I would describe it as a pumice stone attached to a roller that spins.  It's definitely safer and more effective than using a blade or knife on you feet.  The device is very easy to use, and it is battery powered.  The Emjoi Micro Pedi can be purchased online at emjoi.com (as well as other select retailers and high end catalogs).  They range in price from $29.99 - $39.99.
