Stylemint review & the Abbey T

Stylemint is a T-shirt club with  designs by fashionistas, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

This site is dedicated to providing everyday styles designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley’s own fashion sense. As a member you get access to all their designs, and get new styles to choose from every month.

How it works…

Stylemint lets you choose your personal style by completing a short fashion quiz. This is done to fully equip your showroom with Tees you will love. It’s free to sign up and browse their collection, or $29.99 per item each month. You also have the option to skip a month. Though it might seem kind of pricey for a T, there are many department stores who charge the same if not more for Tees. A perk of Stylemint is you get to browse a great selection right at home, and don’t need to worry about finding your right size, time spent, or paying for gas to get to the mall!

The Abbey T

I received the Abbey T packed in a very chic and eco-friendly package. I loved the simplicity of their brown paper packaging and tied twine bow.

 

I opted for the Abbey T because it’s a super versatile and cute design. Black matches with anything, and the one-shoulder style allows me to dress it up with a skirt and heels; or keep it casual with skinny jeans and tennis shoes. Check out a couple outfits below. How would you wear the Abbey T?!

 

Abbey T-c/o Stylemint

I’m very satisfied with my Abbey T and think Stylemint is a pretty good site if you have a casual style and love online shopping. You can visit their site (www.stylemint.com) and browse their fashion line without needing to register or sign in. Another thing i liked, was that my showroom was full with cute Tees and gave me the option to further browse past what was chosen for me. No need to wait for a stylist to review my showroom and make changes, new designs were available by a simple click of the mouse.

Colorblock me!

It’s a rainy day today, so i figured why not play with color to brighten the mood!

Colorblocking is a very attention demanding style. It must be worn proud, as this is a definite loud trend. I played with a few colors below to create a few cute colorblocking outfits. A great plus in having a fashion blog is that even when it’s too cold outside to wear cute dresses, I can still create and share them with you!

My favorite outfit has to be the one with the royal blue dress. The style is very vintage and I’m a huge fan of that. Which is your favorite out of the three below?!

Victoria’s Secret Fashion:Angels on the runway

Last night CBS broadcasted Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show  which was held in New York city.

It was an hour long event of Vic’s Secret Angels including: Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel strutting their stuff on the catwalk and flaunting the new line of bras and panties. As always the line exudes sexy, fun and flirty. The angels walked down the catwalk with musical appearances by Kanye West, Jay-Z, Maroon 5, and Nicki Minaj who donned a neon-bright outfit which perfectly matched the PINK line!

Miranda Kerr modeled a 2.5 million dollar bra! Can you believe that?! 2.5 million on such a small piece of fabric. The Fantasy bra was encrusted with white and yellow diamonds and thousands of stones. The show had a few themes including superheroes (which perfectly matched Kanye’s performance of “Stronger”), aquatic angels, passion, I put a spell on you, and ballet. The show closed with Nicky Minaj’s performance and the angels showing off the PINK line.

This show brought you behind the scenes as the models were beautified with makeup, and dressed for each change required. It also welcomed a new angel and showed her casting as well as overly-joyed thoughts on becoming an angel and walking the catwalk. Said to be “the sexiest night” on television, this years Victoria’s Secret fashion show definitely showcased some sexy pieces and accessories.

In case you missed it, check out the show below!
 

Betsey Johnson purses

Betsey Johnson purses are adorably feminine with edgy accents which make them very unique.

Betsey is a popular fashionista due to her eccentric styles and love for funky prints. The first Betsey Johnson purse i boutght was by far my favorite of her line. It was a fuschia shade hobo with black lace print embroidered throughout the silky texture. I  loved  that purse so much, i had to retire it after a short year since i wore it out. Betsey’s fashion screams fun, just by looking at her purses you can see her personality through her work. I mean she does do a cartwheel at the end of each of her fashion shows!

Colors, fun prints, skulls and roses…

Just to name a few of the traits she adds to her purses. Check out a few favotites below…
