For the Love of Plaid

To me, fall and winter are all about wearing plaids, tartan, and buffalo checked prints. Lucky for me, a few of my favorite stores agree. Below are just a few fun items in my favorite patterns. Does anyone else love plaids, tartan, and buffalo check as much as me?Have a great week!

Tory Burch Love

I’m sure by now everyone knows Shop Bop is offering additional 25% off your purchase with the code FAMILY25, but in case you didn’t, now you do. It’s actually a really good sale and the perfect time to scoop up some items you otherwise would be waiting ages for. You know, when stuff you love FINALLY goes on sale. While I do love about half the stuff on Shop Bop, I have a particularly soft spot for Tory Burch items. Maybe it’s because I feel like only her shoes truly fit me, or maybe its the classic items with a fun twist, but the love is there. So I decided to list a few of my favorite Tory Burch items I have my eye on. Did anyone else take advantage of the sale? If so, what did you get? I feel like no matter how many times I look at Shop Bop I still miss amazing pieces.

Tradesy + Fall Clothes

1I’ve been cleaning out my closet and have a ton of great Anthropologie and J. Crew items for sale; many of which still have the tags or have never been worn! I’ve listed them all on Tradesy (you can see my items by clicking here). Please check them out! There are tons of great pieces for fall and winter. I’m constantly adding new items, so be sure to check back. Feel free to send me best reasonable offers too.

Naked Eyeshadow + Beautiful Redemption

This weekend I finally splurged on some eyeshadow I’ve been eying for a few months now, the Naked eyeshadow pack with 12 neutrals. I don’t go through eye make up that fast, other than mascara, so I figure it’d be ages before I had to replace this set.

Originally, I went with the intention of buying the smaller set, to just test out the product and see how much I liked or disliked it, but after wandering around for far longer than I cared to, I decided to just go with the big set. Seriously, there were no sales associates anywhere on the floor to help. I found the big set, with difficulty, and I know the store carries the small set, I just never found it. Oh, well.  Maybe I’ll ask Mom and Dad for the small set for Christmas. Only 11 more Saturdays until Christmas. Has anyone else started their holiday shopping, or am I the only one?

This weekend I also started the final book in the Beautiful Creatures series, Beautiful Redemption. I have mixed feelings about the series, however I feel like I have to finish it; there are only 4 books in the series. You can read my review of the first book here, and I plan on writing a review for the second and third books this week. Stay with me, it’s been a busy couple of weeks. I also finished Lucky Jim on Friday. That book was hilarious in some parts, dragged in others, and I’m still on the fence as to whether I liked Jim Dixon or not.

Below is information and links to where you can get the full information on NAKED eyeshadow. I do recommend it and the eyeshadow is definitely worth the price. Have a Happy Monday!1Large 12 color set here : You can look great NAKED! This long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals. Shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal, with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. Choose from a range of textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte.

The chocolaty velvet case is emblazoned with the word ‘NAKED’ in gold foil lettering. (Just wait ’til your friends see you pull this sexy thing out of your bag. Jealous!)

This is a shadow palette EVERYONE can use, and a truly spectacular gift. Experiment with office-appropriate neutrals, summertime bronzy looks or sultry smokiness. With such a diversity of neutral shades at your fingertips, there’s more to neutral than meets the eye.

Shade Descriptions: Virgin (cool pale beige shimmer), Sin (champagne shimmer), Naked (nude matte), Sidecar (beige shimmer w/silver micro-glitter), Buck (fawn brown matte), Half Baked (golden bronze shimmer), Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer), Darkhorse (deep mocha shimmer), Toasted (antique copper penny shimmer), Hustle (plum-brown satin), Creep (onyx shimmer w/gold sparkle) and Gunmetal (dark metallic gray shimmer w/silver micro-glitter).

littleLittle 6 color set here: Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery). There’s even one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin – perfect for highlighting and adding dimension. While this palette is small, Urban Decay loaded it with full-size shadow pans, just like their other Naked palettes. Every shade features their Pigment Infusion System, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the eye shadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane color payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. It all comes in a sleek compact (embossed with a pretty, metallic “NAKED” on the front) that has a slight sheen and a suede-like feel that practically begs to be touched. (Hello…how gorgeous will THAT look coming out of your bag?!) Best of all, the slim design is perfect for travel – so you’ll never have to be without these must-have shades.
