Suede is the fabric of the season, throwing a node to the 70's style and I just can't get enough! From coats, boots to bags this fabric is in full swing everywhere. One of the biggest bag trends this year is one with fringe. I am obsessed with this cross body bag from Topshop. Adding a little bit of bohemian meets the wild wild west in black suede is just the perfect accompaniment to accessorize a fall outfit!

Every woman knows how essential it is to have a little black dress in her closet, it's like our own little security blanket, always there and ready to wear in a pinch when you need it. The little black dress (aka LBD) was popularized by the late Coco Chanel when she featured one in Vogue in 1926. It has since remained a constant staple to every women, regardless of the ever changing styles over the years.  The little black dress is just so classically simple and elegant, easy to accessorize and, let's face it, makes us feel confident, sexy and beautiful.

The little black dress that I am wearing is actually something that my mom passed down to me a couple years ago and I can't tell you how many times it has been my savior! It is just timeless and effortless, and the bonus for me, it's also vintage!


So ladies, if you really want to feel sexy tonight, put that little black dress on and dance to Sara Bareilles song "Little Black Dress".  I promise you, you will never feel so good!

Long Hair Don't Care [With Irresistible Me Hair Extensions]

Happy September! Today, I am so excited to share my new long locks with you, courtesy of Irresistible Me! I have always dreamed of long bouncy hair but since my hair is naturally straight and thin, long hair was never an option. I was so excited when Irresistible Me contacted me to test one of their products. I choose from their Royal Remy line and selected the color Royal Ash Blonde in 20 inches and the 200G, which consists of 10 pieces. This was the perfect blend with my natural hair as the 10 pieces definitely gave me a more natural look. I am absolutely in love with my new hair extensions, and although I found the first application a bit hard (I don't have much experience using hair extensions) I quickly got the hang of putting them in after playing around with them for awhile. The clips stay very secure in your hair and I haven't found them to be bothersome in anyway. Irresistible Me uses top of the line hair and the set that I chose, Royal Remy actually goes through an extra special treatment to add extra silkiness and durability, making these one of the best hair extensions on the market at an affordable price! I just can't wait to test out new hairstyles now that I can finally have longer thicker locks!

I eventually plan on doing a video of applying the extensions, so if that's something you are definitely interested in seeing, leave me a comment below! 

Thank you so much to Irresistible Me for sponsoring this post!

Have a great day!
