Happy New Year 2017!

“This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days, Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds, Laughter to kiss your lips, Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag, Beauty for your eyes to see, Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe, Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself, Patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

--Author Unknown--

Wishing you all a Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous New Year! :)

Now @ Sundance Catalog: Save an Extra 50% Off Outlet Items - My Personal Picks Plus Reviews & IRL Pics

Sundance is offering an extra 50% off their already reduced sale items during the
End of Season Sale Event.
The extra savings will be applied in your cart at checkout until 1.19.17. This is an excellent offer, so if you're able to take advantage of it, then definitely do!

As I've mentioned many times before, I really love shopping at Sundance. Granted, many of their items can be quite spendy, but if you can catch them during a promo or on sale, they end up being reasonably priced, especially since the overall quality of their merchandise is excellent.

Click here to shop the deal, and take a peek at my personal picks and reviews below...

Sculptured Delight Dress

This was one of my very first Sundance purchases.
The website describes it as..."A dazzling full skirt dress, with slim-fit bodice, pintuck and pointelle stitching. Back keyhole detail with jewel button closure. Cotton/polyester/silk. Hand wash. Imported. Exclusive. Sizes XS (2), S (4 to 6), M (8 to 10), L (12 to 14), XL (16). Approx. 36"L."

This dress is really lovely in person. It is not only very flattering, but also comfortable to wear, and a decent length, too. As far as sizing goes, I would say it is comparable to J.Crew sizes.
I usually wear a 0 or 2 in dresses at J.Crew, and purchased the XSmall in this dress.

World Journey Bag

From the website..."A small suede and leather zip bag with enough space for everyday or a journey around the world; inspired by classic European mountaineering bags. Double pouch pockets with snap buckles, zip top closure, adjustable webbing strap and inside zip pocket. Imported. Antiqued bronze hardware. 11"W x 2"D x 11"H."

This was another one of my first purchases, and the bag quickly became one of my favorites. The size and weight are perfect, I love the thick strap, and the quality is excellent. The chocolate colorway is currently sold out, but there are several other gorgeous colors to choose from.
Style It - Shop It... From My Closet

*Ashville Boots -
I own these boots in both colors, and actually just ordered a second 'back up' pair in the black.
Yes...I love them THAT much! They keep my feet very warm, and the hidden wedge gives a little 'lift', almost as if wearing a bit of a heel, but still very comfortable. Highly recommend these!!!

What I Wore...

Hands down one of my favorite jewelry pieces that I own.
The letters available are starting to get limited, so be sure to order quickly if your desired initial is still in stock. As I've mentioned before, I honestly wish now that I had bought several more of the charms for Christmas gifts before the letters I needed sold out.

What I Wore...

Do you plan to take advantage of the extra 50% off Outlet Sale Event at Sundance?
If so, what are you planning to get? Do tell!

A Welcome to Luxe101... Your Introduction to the Luxe Life

Not too long ago, I had the privilege of receiving a gorgeous, handcrafted necklace
from Barbara of Luxe101... jewelry for the luxe minded.

Her designs are bold, beautiful statement pieces that are guaranteed to turn heads and garnish compliments, as well as questions as to where you found them.

This one is my lovely statement piece...

Barbara not only designs and makes necklaces, but she also makes earrings and bracelets, as well. All of the beads she uses are natural, and therefore each piece is different.
As she says..."Each piece is unique because nature rarely repeats."

Barbara is originally from Indianapolis, but now calls Atlanta her home. She says that making jewelry for others to wear is a dream come true to her, as well an honor...
this is apparent in the craftmenship and quality of her work.

In my experience, Barbara is ever so kind and very pleasant to work with, as well as genuinely concerned with making each recipient of her pieces completely satisfied with the item they have chosen. I love my necklace, and may just go back for another...

You can see all of Barbara's current offerings in the 'Jewelry Box' on her lovely website here.
Be sure to check them much to love in that box!
