Fall Shoe Lust // EGO Official

I have been a huge fan of public desire for about a year (i think i own around 8 pairs at this point), their prices and quality are hard to beat and they’re always on top of trends!
Ego is a lot like PD, they have inspired by designer shoes (yeezy, acne, stuart weitzman, dior, ysl inspired etc) at good prices (most shoes are around $30-60). I haven’t ordered any yet, but the photos are gorg and the reviews look overall positive!
Here are my top favorites for fall (i’ve included the links to the designers they’re duped from so you can compare! haha)
  1. Ariana Strappy Sandal In Clear Perspex (dupe for Yeezy Lucite heel)
  2. Pia Lace Up Ankle Boots In Nude Lycra (dupe for Dior ankle boots)
  3. Vesenya Velvet Heels (dupe for Gianvito Rossi Portofino velvet sandals)
  4. Olivia Over The Knee Boots In Grey Faux Suede (dupe for Gianvito Rossi Rolling suede over-the-knee boots)
  5. Hannah Ankle Clear Heeled Boot (dupe for Acne Studios Ora Palm boots)
  6. Eva Thigh High Boots In Black Faux Suede (dupe for Stuart Weitzman Highlands)
  7. Zina High Ankle Heeled Boots In Black Faux Suede (dupe for Yeezy ankle boots)
  8. Jinnie Front Lace Up Ankle Boots In Nude Faux Suede (dupe for YSL Babies 90 suede ankle boots)

Fall Style Board

This summer has gone by so quickly, it still feels like June to me. I've had so much fun over the past few months working for Silkstaq and enjoying my off-time with friends. Sadly, school will be starting back up for me soon, and my life will mostly consist of writing papers and eating microwavable foods. On the bright side, fall is my favorite season for fashion- so I thought a good way to relieve my school stress would be to put together a little fall style inspiration post! Here are a few photos from the past few months that have hinted at my outfit ideas for the upcoming months, along with some polyvore sets! 

Also, I always get questions on my tumblr about the biggest trends for the season / which pieces I am most excited about, so here is compliation of my top picks! Enjoy xx (much more coming soon)

Summer Makeup // Bare Minerals & NYX

A few months back I had the pleasure of working with Simon malls to try out some of the products sold at their Wrentham Outlets location. Some of those products included these Bare Minerals blushes, foundation samples, and lip glosses. If you know me, you know I'm not one to splurge on lots of makeup (or really anything outside the realm of clothes), so I rarely know what's going on in the beauty world. 

I'm happy to say that the Bare Minerals products definitely surprised me- the foundation fits my skin tone perfectly, and the blush is pretty and subtle. As for lip gloss- I've never been a huge fan, but Kylie is bringing it back so why not?

Along with my Bare Minerals items, I've been going back to my NYX BB cream and concealer for daily touch ups. The last thing I want to do during a heat wave is wear layers of makeup, so a light BB cream is a good middle ground between foundation and a bare face.

I'm so happy to be sharing these photos from my shoot for The Tannery! If you're in the city it's a must-see, they have a location on Boylston St and one in Harvard Square full of the best designer pieces you could ever imagine. Thank you SO much to my photographer & friend Jackie Parkes for taking these photos!

The Minimal City Bag

My style has always been quite casual and laid back.. sneakers and jeans are usually the base of any outfit I wear. However, these last few months I've been making a conscious effort to explore the more feminine and put-together side of my style. This little transition was the reason I was so excited when I found the Zara minimal city bag, a structured nude satchel that is very reminiscent of the Celine belt bag.  

I've loved the belt bag ever since I saw it, it's a little more mature looking than a shapeless cross-body bag but still easy to style for everyday outfits. Unfortunately, a Celine bag isn't easy to get my hands on, which made this Zara alternative a huge releif! I'd definitely recommend it. It's really soft and looks a lot more expensive than it actually is! Another plus is that it holds my 13" Macbook, a feature that I can't attribute to most of my other bags.

For my first outfit with the city bag, I opted for a silk button down camisole from Boohoo, chunky heels from Public Desire, a white duster coat from Forever 21, and some vintage Levi's. In order to keep this outfit true to my style I decided to wear the most worn-in pair of jeans I have, I think the mix of heels and jeans always ends up looking really cool.

White Sandals + Ruffles

Happy Sunday! Today's outfit post is one I'm super happy with- I've ventured out of my typical casual style and gone for some more feminine and dressed-up look, and the best part is that it's super affordable. I've been loving Public Desire shoes for almost a year now, they have yet to dissapoint me with anything I've ordered from them and their prices are amazing. I also love this top form Sheinside, the ruffles are hard to tame in the wind but it's such a unique style it's worth it.

Summer Stripes

If you've followed my style for a while now you know that I love Isabel Marant. As far as clothing goes, she is my all time favorite designer. Every collection she releases is different from the previous one and stands alone in its originality and influence. Her FW15 collection has to be my favorite, it was full of her signature feminine textures and shilloettes, but had overtones of military influence. 

My favorite piece from the collection was the Haeza dress, a long sleeve striped sweater dress that ended up gracing the front of almost all of my favorite street style sites. Unfortunately I never got my hands on the dress, but my friends at Genuine People were kind enough to help me find this similar version! Of course nothing beats the real thing, but I love the fit of this sweater dress and the extra long sleeves are super unique.
