OOTD: Nectar Sunglasses + Giveaway

Hey all-

After experiencing over a week of rain, I was thrilled when the temps went back up (think, 75 degrees +) & the sun made an appearance last Thursday. I knew it was the perfect day to pull out this dress because (hopefully) this would be the last time I'd get to wear it until next spring. I was even more thrilled when I realized I had the perfect pair of sunnies to pair with this dress.

These Nectar Sunglasses are nothing short of fabulous! Although they appear to be similar to last year's Ray-Bans, they are SO MUCH MORE. Unlike the RB's these Nectar glasses are extremely light weight. Being female, I appreciate the lack of heaviness- hello, no lines left on my face. I also love the fact that shape. Most aviators have an extreme teardrop frame, which isn't very flattering on someone with a small face. But lastly, the thing I love most about these- they're POLARIZED!!- Take that Ray-Ban! If you haven't tried polarized lenses, I highly recommend it- it's so good for your eyes!

Nectar offers an array of sunnies, not just aviators. You also have the option to customize your own pair! If my love for Nectar hasn't sold you, the price will- each pair is $15-$25!!!!!! Another great feature the guys over at Nectar offers is no worry exchanges- even if you break them! I don't know about you, but I will definitely be getting more of these sunnies. Head over to Nectar to browse the selection of glasses. Which are you favorites?

Dress: Love Fire via Peebles

Guess what. I'm giving away these beauties. To be entered, simply follow the instructions below. Good luck!!

United for UNOS 5th Annual Soiree

Hey all-

A few weeks ago, I attended the United for UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing) Soiree. It was absolutely fantastic. I love an opportunity to dress up in sequins & enjoy amazing food from the Richmond area.

I got this dress a few years ago & I'd only worn it once. I'm trying to save money, so I was thrilled when I saw this dress hanging in my closet. Honestly, I've got a lot of clothes with the tags still attached that I should probably wear before convincing myself I need new ones.

OOTD: Mad for Plaid

Hey all-

Last week I attended an event hosted by Sydney of Chic Stripes & Baggio Consignment for bloggers/fashion lovers. It was a lovely event. I had never been to the store before & was pleasantly surprised by all of the goodies there. Baggio is a luxury consignment store. You can find names like Louis Vuitton, Hermes & Chanel all in very good condition. I found the most amazing pair of leopard print pony hair Manolo Blahniks ($690) that I wish I could have gotten that night. I still think about them. I also learned that Baggio offers three month layaway on the designer goods- making it the ideal place to purchase luxury items for someone like me who has champagne taste on a beer budget. Be sure to check out Chic Stripes and Baggio's web sites.

It's the weekend, got any plans?!
