Inner Gwen

Skirt / Crop top / Moto Jacket- H & M- Old- Similar Here / Shoes- On Sale! / Hair
Necklace- H&M-Sold Out- Similar Here / Clutch-Old- Similar Here / Sunnies / Ring-Retired- Lia Sophia
         It's the beginning of the week (again) Glaminators.  How did this happen? Weekends come and go so quickly here! The weather in New Jersey was amazing this weekend and it was hard to believe it was the end of September!
     Last week, one of my favorite bloggers, Gina from On the Daily Express, posted her monthly fashion horoscope! Since I am a Libra, this one was especially exciting for me because it was all about Libra style! (Click here to see full post) Being a huge Gwen Stefani fan, I was super excited to see that we share the same style horoscope!  
     Before reading this post, I had already photographed today's look for the blog and had temporarily named this post "Settle down", the title of a No Doubt song.  Every time I see houndstooth, I always think of Gwen because she wears it so often and it is a prominent pattern in her L.A.M.B fashion line.  I love her sense of style and felt like I was channeling my inner Gwen with this look! Isn't she just stunning?!?! Maybe there is some truth in the stars!

Oh The Flossy Flossy: Sweaters, Stripes, and Sweets

Hello friends in fashion! It's that time of the month when I share with you one of my favorite blogs! Meet Marta! She is the beauty behind the blog Sweaters, Stripes, and Sweets! She has an amazing blog and her genuine sweetness and amazing fashion sense shine through in every post! Read below to get to know my girl a little bit better!!!


Marta, I love reading and following your blog "Sweaters, Stripes, and Sweets" each week! What was the inspiration behind the name?
Marta: Thanks so much Marianne!! The inspiration behind the blog’s name is pretty simple I have a weakness for all three things and it also had a cute ring to it. Sweaters and clothing with stripes are two things I have the most of in my closet and I’ve always had a sweet tooth. I knew my blog would be focused primarily on fashion but I also wanted to once in a while share simple dessert recipes so the name was a perfect fit. My tagline is “Fashion Dreams of the Everyday” since I often day dream about fashion and what I’m going to wear plus I want to showcase everyday style and fashion for less!

Being from Canada, do you see any major differences from your style compared to the bloggers you follow from the US?
Marta: I can’t say I’ve noticed any specific differences from my style and American style. I follow so many American bloggers with such different styles so it’s hard to say. I think American style is so vast and there seems to be certain aesthetic styles that are more popular in different areas like boho in Cali, very glam in the Southern states, etc. I’ve never had one specific style I stick to. If I had to label my style it would be “casual glam” as I usually dress casually but I adore a little luxe and glamour so I will add that with jewelry, bags, shoes or any accessory. I also tend to mix things up with elements of different looks from classic, to boho, minimalist and trendy.

What is your favorite thing about being a fashion blogger?
Marta: My favourite thing about being a fashion blogger is the amazing women I’ve met and friendships I’m building. This was unexpected and has been so awesome and rewarding, there’s a nice comradery between bloggers. We are inundated in the media by negativity between women so it’s such a breath of fresh air being part of a community with so many supportive, intelligent and thoughtful women. Fashion has always been a way to express myself so this is my creative outlet. Plus having the opportunity to inspire and help other women to take pride in themselves and find their own unique style without having to break the bank is very cool!

If you had an unlimited amount of money, what is the one piece of clothing/accessory you would buy?
Marta: Oh this is a hard one to narrow down…but I think I would hit Chanel and buy the timeless and classic large woven Chanel bag in black and probably everything else in there too;) But seriously it’s always been an item I’ve coveted and it’s something I would have forever.

What are you most looking forward to in the fall?
Marta: The thing I’m really looking forward to in the fall is going to a pumpkin patch with my girls, we have a great one not too far from our house and they have hey rides, farm animals, games, and home baked goods. It’s beyond adorable and sweet to see them having such a blast and it’ll be my little ones first time going. 

What is your favorite type of sweet?
Marta:  I think this is the hardest question for me, it’s impossible for me to decide so I’m going to break it down like this:
- At a restaurant: Creme brûlée.
- On my birthday: Red velvet cupcakes or Strawberry Shortcake.
- At Christmas: All cookies, especially shortbread.
- In the summer: Ice cream.
- Everyday: Chocolate.
Oh wow, I realize as I’m typing this it sounds really bad and indulgent but I promise it’s all in moderation!

What are your 3 favorite stores to shop in and why?
Marta:  Old Navy, Forever 21 and Winners which is T.J. Maxx (not sure why they changed the name when they brought it to Canada). I love all three of them for different reasons but one common reason is affordability.
 Old Navy is for the good classic and staple pieces. Their shoe and bag departments have been killing it recently too.
 Forever 21 is for the great selection of trendy and more glam stuff. Their jewelry department obviously rocks!!
  Winners/T.J.Maxx is for the variety of merchandise and how they have the best finds that are different, on trend but not every single person will be wearing. Also, I’m sometimes a sucker for big name brands and I can find them there. J Brand, Free People, BCBG, Diesel, DKNY, and Kate Spade are some of my faves and although they are my splurge purchases the quality is excellent and they are well below regular retail value so I don’t feel as guilty.

What are your favorite blogged looks so far and why?
1 / 2 / 3
Marta: 
 1. Casual, Neutral with a Pop: I loved this look because it combines so many of my favourite things: florals, maxi skirts, a denim jacket, and neutral accessories. It’s a very “me” look. 
 2. T.O. Date Night: This is my first denim vest and I loved how it gave a bit of edge to my more feminine dress and accessories. Burgundy is one of those colours that suits me so I was very happy with how this overall look came together for my date.
 3. Birthday Maxi Skirt: This is one of my faves because I got to get more dolled up. I liked the glam vibe and how well the bright cobalt skirt, lace top and peach statement necklace went together.

Well Glam Squad, isn't Marta fabulous!?!?! I totally enjoyed interviewing her and getting to know her a little better! I hope you did too!

You Can't Touch This

Crop Top /  Joggers / D.I.Y. Magazine Clutch / Shoes- Sold Out- Here in black- Similar Here
Sunnies / Necklace- Lia Sophia/ Bracelets / Ring, Ring  / Watch  / Hair
     Happy Thursday dolls! Yesterday, I shared my crafty side with you, showing off my latest D.I.Y. project, the magazine clutch. Today, you can see how I styled this crafty creation!
Can we talk about these acid wash denim joggers I scored in the mecca of all things trendy, Forever21, for $19.80?!? The first thing that came to mind was M.C. Hammer pants with a mondern fit! You defintely can't touch this trend! The high waisted cut made it very easy to pair with this Express crop top.  A top you wouldn't catch me dead in bearing my midsection with anything low- rise, that ship has sailed- 'fo 'sho!  I'm loving this look with my Lady Gaga clutch and pink heels! What do you think? Would you rock this trend? Leave a comment and let me know your what's going on in that trendy mind of yours!
Thanks for stopping by lovelies!

She's Crafty

Buy the Kit Here  (*Photo source Darby Smart)

      Happy Wednesday Glaminators! Hope your week is running smoothly! Did I ever tell you how much I love making things?  I use to scrapbook, design pillows for my friends, embellish flip flops, and now I love to knit! 
     I stumbled upon this company called Darby Smart that sells kits to satisfy all of your D.I.Y. needs.  While perusing the site, I found this kit to make a magazine clutch and I thought to myself... "um yes please!"  It comes with everything you need, all you have to do is choose the cover.  This crazy fashionista walked around the magazine section of Barnes and Noble at least 100 times and if anyone was watching, they would've thought I had some major decision making issues! I had a lot to consider and I was totally judging a magazine by it's cover! I finally chose Harper's Bazaar's September issue with Lady Gaga on the cover:
The instructions were simple enough, the only thing that was a little challenging was measuring the cover to be the perfect fit.  The kit is $29 but if you use the code:Welcome24 at checkout you will receive $10 off and free shipping on your first order! Such a great deal and a great way to add personal flair to your wardrobe! So go out there and get crafty!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

With all this excitement, I think it's safe to say that I am done mourning the summer. Bring on the fall and all the great things that come with it!

Sunnies / Bag- Marshalls- Love This Option / Bracelets- Charming Charlie / Hair 
Amazing Altuzarra Collection For Target


     Happy Wednesday doll faces! Have you checked out the fabulous Altuzarra collection at your local Target yet? No? Whatcha waiting for girl? This is by far my favorite designer collection that has arrived in Target in a long time! Every piece is fall perfection full of amazing prints, rich colors, textures, and style.  I need to thank Niki (The Fashionable Wife) for previewing the collection on her blog last week, so that I was well prepared when I got to Target at 8:05 Sunday morning! Unfortunately, my local Target did not carry the whole collection (some of it isn't even available in stores), but I was stoked to see this Swiss Dot Dress there because it was one of the pieces I was dying to try on!  It is so beautiful, taking this peasant-style dress to the next level with beautiful sheer sleeves, gold sequin, and soft dot details! What's your favorite piece in the collection? 
Thanks for stopping by!
