Earlier this summer, I told you guys about a party that I had attended that launched new collaborations and styles that Charlotte Russe had incorporated into their collections. We are all familiar with Charlotte Russe; however, that night I could see that they had stepped into a new direction. In fact, one of the items in my goodie bag has made appearances at various events and girl's nights out as well (I love the bib necklace and the cuff that goes with it)!
This week I went to their Editor's preview and saw various accessories and outfits that will hit the stores of CR later on this month through Feb! When it comes to adding sparkle and bling there are plenty of dresses and tops that can be paired over leggings. There are quite a few cute options for footwear and the pieces are truly versatile. Above is a video of some of their key looks that you'll definitely want to pick up for later!
My avid readers know that yesterday, we talked about the importance of going out for a Girl's Night Out. When it comes to going out, if I don't know what the plan is - I like to dress comfortably while having a look that could g anywhere. In these situations, I turn to my summer favorites. I love Express' tube dress which is a bandeau on the top and then hits to about my calves. This is perfect to wear to the beach or on a night out. I got one in black and I love that I can dress it up and down depending on what's going on. When it comes to accessories, I attended Charllotte Russe's launch party which showcased collaborations that they have done for this fall with People's Liberation, Kitson, etc. Within their goodie bag, they had a super cute necklace and magnetic cuff (the clearer picture is courtesy of Budget Babe Blog). I love that these are embellished fabric pieces that definitely add a bit of rockstar glitz to your look! For my footwear if I'm not in heels, I usually go with my Havaianas. I love this pair as these are my go to since they're super comfortable and I love giving a shout out to Brazil (I have a little Brazilian so it's nice to sport the flag). I'm known for wearing a large cocktail ring of sorts and in the summer, I love wearing a large shell! Although I got my ring (worn in the bottom picture) in the Dominican Republic earlier this year, you can check out Lena Bernard's site to see which ring works best for you. It's large and a nice piece of jewelry to where that allows people to stop and ask you about it. Finally, I love the fact that bags are definitely something that you notice when you go out with your girls. Once you have the bag taken care of, you have to think about the wallet. I am in love with my Jimmy Choo wallet which is a great statement and a great pop of color as well! These are great pieces that you can use in various situations and events. All the links within the spread can be clicked on - so think about what your staples are for the summer and what looks great when it comes to going from day to night and event to event.
