Why Yes, My Sweater is Sparkling

Everytime I'm in a shopping mood, I'm always sure to stop by Zara. I love how you don't have to sacrifice your wallet for the name of fashion and quality > price. I realized that I was actually wearing one of my favorite Zara trousers so I just had to snap a pic of my outfit for you guys! I couldn't help indulging myself with several pairs of trousers during my recent NY trip haul (huge winter sale!). I don't know why but I feel like the merchandise in New York is always better. H&M, Forever21, to name a few, had such a better selection. Even their mannequins were dressed better!

I especially loved the subtle sparkle that my sweater was exuding that afternoon. Pairing a cropped sweater is definitely my go-to when wearing high-waisted trousers. Since my legs are shorter (SO hard to find jeans!), I find that it helps me look more proportionate. Another added perk of this crop sweater is that it's longer in the back so it covers that awkward look that pants with the lack-of-pockets sometimes give.

Zara Trousers | Enzo Angiolini "Sully" Platform Pump in Camel $88.95

These are one of my favorite nude pumps in my shoe collection. Enzo Angiolini makes some of the most comfortable pumps I own. I don't even have to break them in and I can easily wear them all day. I highly recommend getting a pair - your feet will thank you!

Deal vs. Steal: Jennifer Aniston's Coveted Wedges

I've been coveting these Stuart Weitzman Alex Espadrille Sandals since I first saw Jennifer Aniston rocking them. You know when you see something you absolutely fall in love with and you obsess over them? Yes I always keep tabs on my favorite items and hope they go on sale. Oh how I wish I had Jennifer Aniston's income! But I saw these Chinese Laundry imitations while shopping at the Beverly Center and literally ran in.

What's great about Chinese Laundry is that there are always promo codes that you can use to get free shipping and typically at least 20% off! I went home and bought these immediately - too good of a find for me to pass up!

 I love how Jennifer Aniston always looks so effortlessly put together. 

The Steal: Stuart Weitzman "Alex" Espadrille Sandal $365

The Deal: Chinese Laundry Dippity Do in Khaki $69.95 

Use promo code DIVASQUARE for 20% off your purchase! Bringing this to a cool $61.42 with tax!

I must admit, that even though I've satisfied my Espadrille wedge craving and chose The Deal. Those Stuart Weitzman still hold a place in my heart. One day!

Inspired by: Oscars 2011 Mila Kunis Lavender Bombshell

When Mila Kunis stepped onto that red carpet, I literally felt my jaw drop because she looked absolutely stunning. I love love love this stunning shade of lilac and it just looked gorgeous on her. It was the perfect mix of romantic, classic, and sultry. The lace detailing was delicate and absolutely lovely on her.

Here are some my favorite picks that were definitely inspired by her lavender knockout dress.

I love the delicate pairing of lace and chiffon. Not to mention her earrings!

J.Crew Chiffon Zadie Dress $129
This dress has the same deep V that would look gorgeous with some peek-a-boo lace.

Take this Victoria's Secret Lace Applique Satin Slip $48 for example.
Even a lace bra would do the trick! Tastefully done of course.

Jen's Pirate Booty Goddess Long Dress in Lilac $169
Definitely the everyday version of Mila's. 
Still effortlessly pretty with ruffles and all.

BCBGMAXAZRIA One Shoulder Chiffon Dress $298
I love how this bejeweled belt matches Mila's earrings! 

J.Crew Taryn Long Dress in Soft Lavender $350 
My favorite pick! Airy-esque with that gorgeous color. Plus being chiffon and floor-length this dress is just oh so appealing.

And if you really want to go out. Check out this great Zac Posen number! I also have a great lookbook inspired by all this lavender! Can't wait for all of you guys to see it.

The winner of my First Blog Giveaway will be up soon! : )
