Out For The Weekend- Mom Jeans & Reebok

This past weekend I went out for a fun afternoon in the old city of Jaffa.
I wanted to show you guys to ways I style a vintage pair of Levi's 501, aka "The Mom Jeans".

The first outfit is more on the girly side. The olive green ribbed top is from Topshop. The floral kimono is from Forever 21, and it gives the outfit a bohemian vibe. The sunnies are from a thrift store, down south in Atlanta, and the shoes are classic Reeboks.

The second outfit is for the edgier and grungier girls out there. I decided to give the "Denim on Denim" trend a try and I actually liked it. I think the trick with mixing denim is to make sure to pair different shade and washes to make it work. My denim jacket is my mom's vintage jacket straight out of the 80's. My top is from forever 21, and my weed necklace is one that I got from the flea market.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, and you can comment what styling&fashion posts you would like to see next <3

Styles For Less

Hey friends! So today I wanted to do another post about dupes. But unlike my previous post that was about makeup dupes, this time it's going to be fashion steals for a lot less! I don't want to use the word dupe for this fashion items because a lot of the cheaper versions are actually good quality.
I chose to bring some pieces that are pretty popular and timeless and tried to find cheaper alternatives.


*Cheaper alternative : Ebay holographic backpack 30$

2. Celine Nano Bag 3250$ (crazy price ha?)

*Cheaper alternative: Asos Bag 63$

Why pay 3250$ when you can pay 60$?

3. Topshop Joni Jeans 65$

* Asos Rivington Jeans 54$

4. Nike Air Max 90 132$

*Cheaper alternative: Reebok Classic Leather 65$

5. Asos Faux Fur Rainbow Coat 118$:

*Boohoo Faux Fur Pastel Coat 52$:

6. Grafea Clear Backpack 285$

*Cheaper alternative: Ebay clear backpack 16$

Not very similar, but the closest one I was able to find

Mini Lipstick Haul+ MeNow liquid lipstick review

So lately I've been trying to find dupes for a lot of high end lip products that I have  mentioned a few posts ago. So today I finally got the dupes in the mail so I can review them and swatch them for you.

There was a whole hype about the MeNow liquid lipsticks that are very similar to LimeCrime lipsticks. The shades I got are #18 that is supposed to be an exact dupe for LimeCrime's Cashmere, and the second one I got is in shade 30.

I was also on the hunt for a dupe of Mac's Styled In Sepia that is always sold out and had never been restocked. So I found a very similar one by NYX in Maison.

MeNow  #18(1.30$):

So this shade is allegedly known for being an exact dupe for LimeCrime's Cashmere. IT'S NOT!!!.
This shade has a lot more of lavender undertones rather than grey undertone that are found in Cashmere. This shade is also a lot lighter and has a tendency to wash you off if you have fair/olive skin tone. As for the texture, it dries matt and last all day long, which is always a plus.

MeNow #30 (1.30$):

This shade was not really talked about, but I saw a really nice swatch of it on google and decided to give it a try. It is a beautiful light chocolate brown with cool undertones and extremely similar to Styled In Sepia by Mac.

NYX Maison(6$):

I got this shade in hopes to get an exact dupe for Mac's Styled In Sepia since everyone claimed that the two lipsticks are identical. I never actually owned "Styled In Sepia" so I don't actually know how it would look on my lips, but from what it looks like on others, the shades are very similar. 
The texture of Maison is truly incredible. It's matt but not over drying and applies creamy.
The down side is the smell. It has scent of a very cheap lipsticks but lets not forget it was 6$.

NYX- Maison
