Statement Shoes

Sometimes it’s all about the statement shoes! I am apparently the only owner of these incredible shoes because they never went into production; they are a true sample and I got them for about 90% off of what similar Paul Andrew shoes go for. It’s exciting to be able to own a pair of shoes I would normally never be able to own because they are so beyond my budget so heck yes for sample sales! They’re a bit cooler than my usual shoe style but it’s fun to branch out and the chunky platform make these shoes pretty comfortable. They’re sold in taupe, burgundy, and a black and red jacquard here. And you can find this print in a more classic pump style here. I am also personally obsessing over this pair!pleated erin fetherston dresspaul andrewpleated dress stacking ringMy newest jewels from Wrenn Jewelry and Leslie Francesca might be my favorites to date. These cool multi stone and druzy rings with the moonstone bangle and mint green gemstone bangle  are amazing. And my Amelia Rose paris necklace in peony is a beauty too.

Ombré Tights

These.tights.are.everything. Is that so cliché of me to say? I can’t help it! They really are so good! I know it’s really not tights weather anymore but I wore these ombre tights on a cool day a couple of weeks ago and I just couldn’t wait until fall to share them with you! I have one more pair in another amazing color combination that I will share when it’s tights weather again but for now, here are my mermaid ombre tights from BZR Shop in all their glory. 🙂

Embellished Blush Gown

I was so grateful to find a photographer when I was in Los Angeles for Passover. It was still cold in New York so shooting in beautiful weather was such a treat. After meeting my photographer for our first shoot, she shared some photos of her adorable dog and we planned a second photo shoot so I could sneak her dog in for some photos. When I went to her house, she showed me the blush gown she wore for a family wedding and we decided on the spur of the moment to shoot it because it’s so gorgeous! I wish I own this but hey, at least I have the photos. 🙂 I linked to this dress in the slideshow at the bottom of the post but there’s only a couple left so I linked to more options as well; disable your adblock if you want to view them.aSequinLoveAffair-5 aSequinLoveAffair-8 aSequinLoveAffair-9
