Happy hump day my favorite friends in fashion! Hope this week is treating you well! 
I think this is the first time in Good Girl Gone Glam history that I have posted a look that was all black and white. No colorful accessories, maybe just a colorful lip, some houndstooth print, and my new over the knee boots.  After looking through each photo, I immediately felt like there was something missing.  That's when I realized, I'm addicted to color.  Dun, dun, dun..... Hello, My name is Marianne and I'm a color addict.  Is there a support group I could go to?  Does anyone else out there feel naked without some color in their ensemble or am I all alone out there? 
Thanks for stopping by Glaminators!

Cuddle Up With a Good Book!

     Happy Friday my fabulous fashionistas! Now that the weather is getting colder, there is nothing like cuddling up on the couch with a good book! Below are a few of my favorite things that are guaranteed to make your reading experience a cozy one!

Now that we are nice and cozy, here are a few of my must reads! 
WARNING: I LOVE love stories! 

  1. Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon: I loved this book because it was the perfect romantic comedy.  A quick and easy read that leaves you with that warm and fuzzy feeling inside.
  2. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire: Good girl, falls in love with bad boy- trust me, it's addicting
  3. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover: Amazing love story about two musicians.  There is an out of this world soundtrack to listen to while reading this book that was made just for this story!  If you are a music lover, this book is a 3 dimensional experience! 
  4. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen: Boy falls in love with a married woman who has an abusive husband.  It's better than the movie (usually is).
  5. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover: This is my favorite book in the entire world.  I have no words to describe it, but if you read it you will thank me. Actually, read anything she writes, she's a genius! 
  6. Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher: A woman wakes up as a prisoner in a house and she doesn't know how or why she is there.  That's all you need to know! 

That's all she wrote Glaminators! I hope you pick up one of these books and let me know what you think! Have a stupendous weekend my lovelies!

Clothing Jail

Top- The Loft // Astoria Necklace // Pants- H&M- Last Season- Similar Here // Fur Snood
Handbag // Shooties // Sunnies // Bracelets and Ring- Lia Sophia // Hair
Hey Glam Squad! Thanks for stopping by on this wickedly wild Wednesday!
Can you hear that cheering? I can! It's my fall/winter wardrobe celebrating their release from clothing jail, where they have been locked up since spring break! They are excited to be back in business, fulfilling their life's purpose: to help me look fabulous!
I have officially freed the faux leather pants out of captivity and have put them back into wardrobe rotation!  My enchanting faux fur snood has also made it's way back around my neck and is the perfect accessory when a heavy jacket isn't necessary, but you still need to keep warm and look glamorous all at the same time!  The newest edition to my fashion family are these fabulous crimson shooties! They are certainly ready for their close up and are excited to be worn all thoughout the season!
Have you busted your clothes out of jail yet?

Glam Girl Knits

Top- Sold Out- Similar Here // Scarf- Handmade by Me! // Crossbody Bag- Gucci // Hair
 Sunnies // Jeans- Loft // Boots//  Watch // Bracelets- Lia Sophia
 Earrings- Charming Charlie //Lips- Mac- Hang Up
            Hey Glam Squad! Happy Monday (if there is ever such a thing)!  I cannot believe we are more than halfway through October! Where is the time going? Once Halloween is over I feel like we get catapulted right into the holidays! It's almost time to hold on tight!
              To get a head start on the holidays, I start knitting winter accessories in the summer so that when I need a last minute gift, I just dip into my stash and wallah, instant gift! This scarf found it's way into my personal collection because it is just too perfect for the fall and I couldn't part with it!  My husband always asks "How many scarves do you need?" Well that's a silly question, one for each outfit! Total duh!
            Since knitting is one of my favorite things to do, I have planned to offer some of my creations to you in the near future! Stay tuned my fabulous friends in fashion and have a fabulous week!

Five Forever 21 Shopping Tips

Ah! Forever 21! My favorite store for all things trendy! I have been shopping there for years and I have developed a method when shopping there. Today I am sharing my personal shopping tips with you, so let's get to it!

1. Never assume you are going to just "run into" Forever 21.  Even my husband knows by now, it's never a quick visit.  If I don't have the time, I don't even walk in!

2. Shop online before you go to the store so you have an idea of what you are looking for.  Jot down the product code for each item on your phone and take a screen shot of the item. This will be helpful if you cannot find what you are looking for while shopping.  You can ask an associate to enter the code into their computer to see if it is in stock in the store. If it is in stock, your screen shot picture will help the associate find your item.

3.   Always try on items you want to buy.  Their 21 day "return" policy is not the best because you never get your money back, just a store credit.  If you shop online, you can make a return and receive a full refund by sending it back to the company.  If you take your online purchase back to the store, you will receive a store credit.

4. I am every size in this store.  Sometimes I am a small, sometimes a large, it all depends on the garment.  Love 21 Contemporary runs approximately a half size bigger than Forever 21 items. This is very clear when shopping on the website, but you have to look at the tag when shopping in the store.

5.   Forever 21 is the best store for what I call  "Trend Experimentation."  Always try on one piece that you think you would never wear.  I do this all of the time because sometimes that's the exact item I wind up buying.  It's a great way to broaden your taste and see what fits your style and what doesn't.

Now that you have your tips, it's time to get shopping! 
Below are a few of my favorites in the store now!

Long Live Fashion!

Top- H&M / Pants H&M / Shoes  / Handbag / Beanie- Old- Similar Here /
Sunnies/ Jewelry- Lia Sophia / Hair 
                Happy Wednesday doll faces! I don't know if you have been in H&M recently, but they have been killin' it this season with amazing, affordable, wearable, pieces for the fall/winter.  What's even more fabulous than having an amazing fall collection to shop from? Funny you ask! You can bring your unwanted clothes or home textiles of any brand to any H&M store and receive a 15% off coupon for each bag you donate to be used for your next purchase! (Limit two coupons per day) H&M will take your unwanted items, recycle them, and turn them into raw materials and new products! Their goal is to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and you get to clean out your closets all at the same time! It's a great time to donate and get a stack of those 15% coupons! I hope my family likes H&M because it looks like its going to be an H&M Christmas this year!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you decide to take part in this fun campaign!
