Nikki on a Thursday

Thursday's fun fit includes a loose white T from Nordstrom, olive green pants from Old Navy, cuffed myself, blush ruffled vest from H&M, I absolutely love it, and braided strap heels are by Calvin Klein.  Accessories are from Forever21 and Maui bazaar stands.
I recently noticed a hot trend for hairstyles is the headband braid.  I thought, why not try it out on myself?  Voila! I feel pretty good about this one I made today--first time!  Then I finished the look with a cute curled ponytail. 

Walk With a Hop

I was online, checking out one of my fave sites,, when I came upon these critters.  At first, I just thought they were slippers, then, taking a closer look, they are most definitely wedges!  Wow, not sure how I feel about wearing these out of the house? But, If you can think of a way to rock these, please feel more inclined to comment!  I would love to know your ideas! 
PS - Enjoy hopping around town in these funky wedges!

Outfit of the Day

I am taking advantage of this barely warm summer in Los Angeles with white Express shorts, Jessica Simpson wedges, Victoria Secret blue floral (open back) tiered top and grey Forever 21 jersey blazer.

my apologies for the blurry-bad quality pic.

Watermelon Toes

As much as I loved having my toes painted like strawberries, (see previous post, here) it was time to make room for another great summer fruit.  I present watermelons! I used a variety of nail polish brands, but obviously kept in theme with the proper watermelon colors.  I first painted white tips, like a french tip design.  Then I painted on the pink color.  Following the pink, I swept the green over the white tips, only leaving a small line of white to resemble the rind.  Lastly, using a toothpick, I made the seeds using a black polish.

Yay or Nay? -- Beaded Harness

This "bead embellished waistcoat style harness with a metallic finish" ($44) is pretty neat. 
I'd rock this for sure. Would you?
I think it is pretty fierce but then again, I feel like you can wear it once or twice. Not too versatile, but fabulous indeed. What do you think? Yay or Nay?

Levi's CurveID

Not everyone is model thin and jeans shouldnt be either. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that Levis have debuted a "curvier" line of denim for REAL women out there. From the seams to pocket placement, these CurveID jeans are made to flatter. It comes in three different styles:
Slight -- for those of you with straighter figures with jeans that fit too tight at the waist
Demi -- Slight higher rise to flatter the waist and elongate legs.
Bold --  Higher back to honor your real curves and hugs your waist.

Levi's has always been the classic denim-go-to for me. I cannot wait to try these bad boys out!

Leger vs. Arden B

When I saw Khloe Kardashian wearing this Herve Leger black and white striped dress, I was like "Daaaaayaaam Khlos!" She looked fierce in that skin-tight mini dress, waaaay better than Sophia Bush haha!
But of course, Herve Leger don't come cheap... yea $1,250 cheap! Yikes!

Thankfully, retailers for the average person like Arden B <3 sell very similar items!
This dress looks like the exaaact same dress as Khloe and Sophia's! Haaaaay.
Getcho's HERE!

Arden B Geometric Strip Dress ($49, Originally $69)

Overalls on the Come-Back?

Ran into one of Forever 21's "new arrivals" Straight Leg Denim Overalls ($25) ... and it got me thinking..
Click here to purchase!
Overalls aka Dungarees aren't for everyone but they sure was when I was in middle school and high school. Is this a fashion fopaux?? What do you think? Would you dust off your old overalls and sport this trend?

Ralph Lauren, 7 for all Mankind and ASOS have overalls in their line. Would you rock it with a pair of heels? or flat? They range from baggy to slim-fitting... How would you wear your dungarees, if you even would??!

Urban Outfitters -- Witty T's

Hahahaha. I love these two Truly Madly Deeply Tees I ran into while surfing the Urban Outfitters site. Witty things printed on t-shirts are great!
They are both $24 and available online only!
I can relate to both shirts, but too be honest... I do tweet a lot! LOL

Shoes + Bows = Love

I'm always all for cheap thrills and good bargains... although I do at times fall for the expensive luxuries once in a while!
So, while browsing celebrity gossip websites, I saw the Mary J. Blige wearing Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly Booties ($1,195) at the Essence Music Festival... I died!
Instant infatuation with those bows, even though they are named Madame Butterfly..

So after a little research, I found a couple similar pieces! Check em out below!
Top Left: Valentino Bow-Embellished Satin Sandal ($935) -- still God-awfully pricey! yikes
Top Right:  Harajuku Lovers Dalle Heel ($90) -- available in black, brown and red!
Middle:  Pour La Victoire Erika Sandal ($129) -- available in black and ivory. Too cute!
Bottom Left: Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly Bootie... sigh* so beautiful...LOL


OMG, i want this shirt! So random but so cute.... plus i love me some eggs! LOL

Outfit of the Day

I apologize for the horrible quality of this picture. Haha While Nikki is out at beautiful Maui, I'm stuck at work with no partner in crime! :(
Anywho, I am wearing my "Jennifer Aniston" look at work. The blouse is from Old Navy, paired with Zara Khaki skinny pants, Old Navy cognac wedges and a Nine West belt. My accessories VERY minimal and wore my Charlotte Russe leaf necklace.

Strawberry Fields Forever

Being inspired by Summer and all its fun fruits, I decided to paint some strawberries on my tootsies!  I absolutely love, love, love how they turned out.  I used a couple colors from OPI's Swiss Collection.  It was a quite easy project, actually.  I first applied the red base, "Color So Hot It Berns".  Second, using a toothpick, I dotted the red nails with a yellow color by Wet & Wild.  And last, I painted the tips, almost like a french manicure design, with OPI's green, "Cucoo For This Color".  I pulled some of the green color down from the tip line, with the polish brush, to give the illusion of the leaves from the stem.  
Oh, Sooo Sweeeeeeeet!

Yay or Nay? -- Colour Block Catsuit

.......i busted up laughing when i saw this on ASOS. =X
What do you think of this FABBBBBB Aqua Colour Block Swirl Catsuit ($228)??? Yay or Nay?

I would DIE if i saw a girl rockin' this at the club! bahaha.

Yay or Nay?

I was recently on the Victoria's Secret Site and found these knee-high fringe sandals, by Colin Stuart.  The picture below portrays a "whole look" to give a better idea of how to wear these "different" sandals.  Sarah and I are still not convinced that these sandals have what it takes to make a fab outfit.  As Sarah so humorously put it, "What, is that supposed to be hair on your legs?" 
So, how about you? What are you thoughts or ideas to spruce up this sandal look?

Trendy Thursday -- Harem Pants

It's supposed to be Trendy TUESDAY, but what the hay...
(via People)
Whitney Port, Rihanna & January Jones were spotted rockin' black and white harem pants. What do you think about this trend? Is this a must-have in your books??? 

According the People's survey.. its unanimous!
ShopBop has a variety of harem pants, if you are interested in purchasing some! They come in silk, denim, sweats... anything you can think of! I can see how they can be comfortable, but all i can think of is.... MC HAMMER! hahahaa. am I wrong here?

In this photo, Gwen is spotted wearing very harem denim pants, kinda looks like a diaper. What do you think? Yay or Nay?

Makeup Monday -- Burberry Beauty

I love Burberry. I've always been a fan of their classic checkered prints but I'm a little uneasy about their new beauty collection (which is available for pre-order now). I feel like designer brands should try to stick to their own specialty instead of branching out to other consumer markets such as beauty or what not. That's just my opinion. But hey, who's to say Burberry Beauty won't thrive in the makeup world!
...maybe MAC will come out with purses and clothes soon! haha

Will you get anything from Burberry Beauty?

(oops, its actually Tuesday today.. hahaha)
