New Free People Pinstripe Pants

New Free People Pinstripe Pants

Hello! I will tell you what, I have been on PANTS PATROL lately, because all of my black skinnies are fading into grey and I just won’t stand for it. Luckily, TJMaxx has got my back with all of the best fashions and I’ve been able to restock the bottoms department in my wardrobe so I won’t have to run around in my SKIVVIES! Although these new Free People pants seen below are navy instead of my beloved black, I still like them just the same. Take a look at some pics and let’s discuss:

TJMaxx began carrying Free People shoes and clothing within the past year or so and my quality of life has increased tenfold since this happened. As you can see from the price above, their clothing is nowhere even close to my budget, so I just admire them from afar. But, a new pair of SLACKS for twenty bucks was a deal that I couldn’t pass up on so here we are now chatting about them!

I have been on the prowl for a paper bag style of pants like these for a while now. And, the nice thing about my Free People pair, is that they are made from a cloth material instead of that weird filmy kind that the paper bag style uses. That material does no favors for my body type and I wouldn’t want it close to my skin, anyways! I also like that the fit of my pinstripe pants isn’t high waisted like the paper bag style traditionally is. These are a normal rise pant with a baggy fit and a dipped crotch so they are obviously crazy comfortable but, they still manage to look chic, which is important.

I’m looking forward to pairing my new pantalones with a plain white T-shirt and my black Urban Outfitters boyfriend blazer for a cool and relaxed look. I then plan on dressing up the outfit with a long in length gold necklace and rings for a pop of bling. And, to finish it off, a nice pair of heels will do for a look that is perfect for a day at work or a night out for drinks with the girls.

What is a brand name that you admire from afar? How would you style these pants? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

The Wow Factor Of A Frameless, All Glass Shower Door

Standard
The Wow Factor Of A Frameless, All Glass Shower Door

A glass shower door is becoming more and more popular to homeowners due to the fact that it gives a bathroom an elegant and luxurious look. What more, you can take it one step further and opt to use a frameless, all-glass shower door! But setting “aesthetics” aside, below are some more reasons why a frameless, all glass shower door might be perfect for your bathroom:

They Create a More Open, Seamless, and Contemporary Space:

As homeowners, we’re always looking for openness, fluidity, and flow when it comes to our bathrooms. By installing a frameless, all-glass door, you are keeping this openness which helps bring together all the elements such as the decorative tiles, bath fixtures, and all other vanities inside. Traditional shower curtains or doors, on the other hand, work against the open feel since it tends to create a closed, defined space.

They Aren’t Just For Looks:

A door built to last completely sums up the frameless, all-glass shower enclosures. With a standard thickness ranging from ⅜ to ½ inch, frameless doors are sturdy, structurally sound, and safe. All glass shower doors are also made of tempered glass which is very hard to break or shatter, so if going all glass seems a little too risky for you, you haven’t found the right kind of shower door yet.

Most common questions from homeowners when considering frameless, all-glass doors are safety since the edges aren’t protected by frame barriers. While we can understand why it might be a bit concerning, the shower door’s edges are filed down to be soft and smooth, thus removing the danger of being cut or otherwise hurt for anyone going in and out of your shower.

In addition, thanks to the seal-in technology used in all frameless, glass shower doors, they have watertight seals which makes leakage near impossible. These doors are not just stylish, but they’re also very functional. Moreover, since there is little to no metal used in making them, homeowners need not worry about dealing with corroded parts. Win, win, win!!!

Simple Cleaning and Maintenance

Installing a frameless, all-glass shower door in your bathroom isn’t just about appearance, it’s also a practical decision. Since frameless glass enclosures do not have the structural edge of aluminum framing, it is much easier to clean and restore due to its trackless design.

They Can Fit Any Space:

Frameless, all-glass shower doors can be designed to fit any bathroom space, no matter what look you’re going for. If you aren’t a fan of the boxy look, you can opt for circular, triangular, or even oval frameless doors to fit your bathroom space while still creating the same elegant effect.

Increases the Appraisal Value:

Doesn’t stop there, either. These doors can be quite the investment, too. By increasing the appearance of your home including your bathroom, you are creating an impression that the property is well-taken cared of. And, having an elegant looking bathroom and shower door to match is a major turn on to home buyers, making it hard for them to resist a reasonable offer on your home.

Sounds like it’s time to install that frameless, all-glass shower door. One important thing to remember, though, is to only trust a certified glass contractor like Oak Mountain Glass to ensure that you get that glass shower door of yours installed professionally and perfectly the first time around.

Poshmark Review

Poshmark Review

Hiii everyone! If you guys remember from a post a few days ago, Lil Red tried Poshmark for the first time to get a moto jacket by Kensie. The jacket arrived a few days ago, one day after it shipped because, coincidentally, the woman who I bought it from and I live about twenty-five minutes away from each other! Let me give you a reminder of what this Kensie number looks like if you don’t remember and let’s discuss:

kensiekensie1kensie2

Overall, I’m really happy with this purchase and I love my new/used jacket. BUT, my major complaint is that it smelled so smokey and I could smell it as soon as I took it out of the packaging. Now, I get why this would be hypocritical of me to say since I smoke. However, if you’re sending out any type of product to someone, I think that it’s important for it to be in the best condition possible and that includes the smell.

Despite that little hiccup, I would definitely use Poshmark again, I just don’t think that I would buy from the seller that I purchased from. This is all hunky dory with me, though, because, at the end of the day, I got the jacket that I was so desperately seeking out. The price was also fair enough although, since the odor was an issue, I wish that I got it for a little cheaper. But, alas, beggars can’t be choosers!

New Modena New York Hooded Poncho

New Modena New York Hooded Poncho

Helloooooo! During my last long overdue shopping trip to TJMaxx, I didn’t have a lot of luck in the clothing department. Buying new pants will always and forever be the death of me! But, I did manage to find a gorgeous new piece for fall and winter and I am completely obsessed with it. Allow me to introduce my new hooded poncho by Modena New York:

ponchoponcho1poncho2

As we all know by now, fall clothing is my jam. But, can we take a minute to talk about fall accessories?! Scarves, fingerless gloves, hats, boot socks, and ponchos, please! I fell in love with this grey plaid number the moment that I laid eyes on it. The fringed edges, the golden buckle against the chocolate faux leather, the darling hood. WOOF.

This poncho looks so effortlessly chic thrown on over a long sleeved solid colored sweater. Wear it with a pair of skinnies and thigh high boots and you are ready to strut through the streets with the leaves crunching beneath your feet in no time. Top off the look with a huge floppy hat, but be careful that it doesn’t blow away in the autumn breeze!

What is your favorite fall accessory? How would you style this poncho? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

New (Short!) Black & Champagne Nails

New (Short!) Black & Champagne Nails

Hiii everyone! Yep, you read it right. I got my nails cut down on this past fill! *Gasp* ! My claws were getting long, even for me, so I decided to get them cut nice and short so that I could grow them out again. And, shockingly, I quite like them! They’re not as long as I would like but, for the time being, they are cute as hell. I call them my emo Barbie nails. Take a look and let’s discuss:

The first change that I made besides for the obvious, is that I went to a different salon for this service. My normal stomping grounds, Empress Nails, was getting too damn expensive for me so I went with LT Nails, instead, and will continue going there. It wasn’t the best fill I’ve ever had, but it was thirty dollars cheaper than my last one, so you do the math. I’ll take a not as good experience and a cheaper price over high class pampering and breaking my bank any day.

Although I didn’t necessarily enjoy my time at LT, I think that the tech that I went to was just having an off day. I have been to this salon before and was really satisfied every time except for this one, so I’m not going to hold is against them. And, I do like the way my nails turned out. It took some getting used to, because they are way shorter than normal. But, once they grow out a little, they will be perfect. For now, though, I am loving these dainty, edgy claws! :*)

Have you ever changed salons after going somewhere consistently? What was your reasoning? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Sephora Golden Hour Highlighter In Dusk Swatch

Sephora Golden Hour Highlighter In Dusk Swatch

Yo! Back in March, I tried out my first highlighter from Sephora. I used my Beauty Insider points to get a mini Becca highlighter in Opal during one of my orders. I’ve been using my highlighter for the past five months and am just about finished with it. And, five months isn’t bad at all for a mini product! While picking up my Mistress Hair Balm by IGK, I decided to get a new highlighter, too. I ended up with a Sephora brand one for a multitude of reasons, but price was definitely the main factor. Take a look and let’s discuss:

duskdusk1dusk2dusk3dusk4dusk5

^^^ The alternating pictures are with the flash off and the flash on, so you can see the illumination of the highlighter.

Originally, I had planned on getting another Becca highlighter. I really liked the shade that I was using and, if I was feeling saucy enough, maybe I would try a different one. But, then I realized that one of their highlighters costed thirty-five dollars and I said hell no. That would be the most that I’ve ever spend on a makeup product before and I just wasn’t comfortable with it.

I asked one of the workers if she could show me some of the different highlighters that the brands had and, everything but the Sephora brand, which ran for sixteen dollars, was upwards of thirty bucks. So, the Sephora brand it was. I liked that the color I went with, Dusk, was lighter than the shade that I’ve been using. Opal was nice and warm, which was perfect for summer. But, Dusk is cooler and more subdued, which is going to be lovely for the fall and winter months ahead.

I did like a lot of the more expensive highlighters that were shown to me, but I’m glad that I stuck to my guns and went with the cheapest option. I feel guilt free about my purchase and I definitely think that I would be feeling buyer’s remorse if I bought a thirty-five dollar highlighter. I’m looking forward to playing with my Sephora highlighter once I finish my Becca one in its entirety and will have to take some pictures to show you guys the makeup goods when I can! 😀

What is the most expensive beauty product you own? What about the least expensive? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
