Deal vs. Steal?

I first saw these Pelle Moda "Issa" Platform Sandals at Nordstroms. I loved the nude suede option, no longer available online but definitely still in stores, but was still debating over the $155 price tag. 

The Steal: Pelle Moda "Issa" Sandals in Black Suede $155

Then while browsing later on that week I found an almost identical pair at Bakers! Baker Shoes has some great mimics of some really popular shoe brands. Great for your wallet without compromising your style!

The Deal: Debbi Peep Toe Dress in Ice $80

Which ones would you guys pick? The Steal or The Deal?

The Essentials: Khaki Blazer

I'm definitely getting teased by the weather of Orange County. 80's one weekend and rain the next. Make up your mind! But I found a foolproof outfit that I could wear for either occasion and I just love the versatility of it. I think it's important to have some basic essentials in your closet and these are the pieces you know that will never go out of style and you can basically wear it with anything!  

One of my favorite pieces is this Elizabeth & James Blazer. I'm a huge fan of their line (so you'll be hearing me mention them a lot!) and their blazers are the perfect to-go piece without being too masculine. Please forgive the quality/lighting of these pictures. I took some quick pictures before I ran out. I just wanted to share with you guys my outfit!

I love throwing on a great piece of statement jewelry. It automatically brings any casual look up to the next level.  Next blog I promise I will have better photos! : )
