Product Review

Good evening lovelies! I know it's been a while since I've last posted. Between moving and school, it's been impossible for me to sit down and post until this evening. Buuuuuuuuuuuut, tonight, i have my long-awaited product review!

As you all remember, I have partnered with the wonderful stores in the past, and this time I teamed up with them again to do a product review of two of their wonderful items

Product Review

AfterSoles in Silver: $19.00

AfterSoles in Gold: $19.00

I had some issues with receiving these beautiful little flats (thanks to the post office), which is part of the reason why it took so long for me to do this review, but I am happy now that I have them. One of the best things about these flats is the fact that the shipping is free on them, so you don't have to worry about spending any more money than what you're paying for the actual shoes.

These flats are very comfortable. I owned all of 2 pairs of flats before I decided to try these. I live in wedges/heels, boots, and sandals. It's difficult for me to find comfortable and cute flats. These are wonderful. They went with so many different outfits and they're very easy to slip on and off when you're in a hurry. The bottoms feels like they have some support, which is very hard to find with flats. They are incredibly comfortable. I ran around for several days during work and outside of work in them and I was doing just fine. (Normally, flats hurt my feet after an extended period of wear)

I own nothing metallic besides my jewelry, which is another reason why I chose these; i really wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone, and let me tell you, i'm really thankful I did. Mind you, i'm not going to be wearing these every single day just because I have to wear boots or wedges at some point or I'll feel incredibly short next to everyone, but these will definitely maintain in the top percentage of my commonly worn shoes. The fact that you can roll them up is another major plus; along with the fact that they come with cute little bags to put them in if you're on the go. Those came in handy when I went up to my mother's for the weekend and didn't have a lot of suitcase space to put a full pair of shoes. They are very convenient and will fit in almost any purse as an emergency shoe if you're wearing uncomfortable shoes that day.

My verdict: Buy these shoes: you won't regret it! 

Rating: 5/5

Diane Birch: Look for Less

Good evening lovelies! Due to personal ailments, this past week has been lacking in posts. Not to worry though, tonight I am bringing you a wonderful treat for you all!

As you probably have already noticed, I've developed a serious love for Diane Birch. I heard her song "Valentino" quite a while ago, and since then have been a devoted follower. This week, to honor miss Diane, I have decided to re-create one of her many amazing looks.

Look for Less

Outfit Total: $59.69

Yes, it is true, this outfit is almost $10 more, but, at the same time, these are not trendy, one-time-use pieces. These are pieces that will stay in your wardrobe for as long as you wish to keep them because they will always be on-trend and in-style. I feel like this particular look, while it is almost $10 more, is an amazing one and that is why I chose to re-create it, even though it is $10 more. Not every outfit will be close to $60. As you know, I try to keep all my re-creations as close to $50 as possible. Sometimes they go a little over. This is the first time it's been almost $10, but I personally believe this outfit and her style is worth the extra $10 because it so cool, so vintage, yet so now.
