I have been a long time fan of dressing up a casual tee with a large ornate necklace. The contrast of the fancy necklace against a gray tee really elevates the outfit and compliments it perfectly. I decided that the remaining accessories should be a little edgier: a pointy leaf ring, metal-heeled booties and a sleek black clutch. Finishing off the outfit with the ever so versatile black blazer.
This ensemble was particularly perfect going to a show to see The Sounds. If you are unfamiliar with The Sounds, I highly recommend you check them out. They are a Swedish Indie Rock band that produces dancey songs with lyrics that almost anyone can relate to. The bonus is that the lead singer, Maja, is pretty bad ass! Check out the video below for a sample.

Who would have thought the collaboration for Missoni for Target would have caused such a frenzy? Well I did! I knew chaos would ensue, the site might crash, and that it would sell out in a matter of a day. However, I did not anticipate the mayhem, the site crashing and not recovering until the next day, and that it would sell out in, some stores, in a matter of minutes. I wasn’t able to make it to the store the minute it opened, so I went the route of online shopping. I put the things in my cart that I wanted, of what was left, but was excited of what I thought I was getting, then the unthinkable happened – site down. I could see the items in my cart, but I couldn’t purchase them. So, I turned to social media expressing my anger. I was very thankful when I received an “insider” tip that one store would probably still have some items. The first chance I had, I ran to the store and scored! Flats, a cardigan and a make-up bag, that’s all. And that is exactly what I wanted.
