Fakin’ It

Hey Beauties!

It’s a Sunday evening, and I’m all about Netflix right now. Mainly because I don’t do cable anymore; I couldn’t quite justify $160+ a month considering I only watched The Kardashians and Lifetime Movies… no judgments. Currently binging on the show Weeds… HILARIOUS. The television writer for the show also writes the majority of the Orange is the New Black episodes. Something about watching the daily lives of drug dealers and women in prison makes me feel extremely confident about my life choices. NOW here are some style steals for ya…

Culottes have been in this year, and one of my personal favorites are the TIbi seersucker pants. I’m so in love with these pants that I seriously contemplated racking up $375 and getting them… thank you credit card. BUT, lucky me, I also make weekly visits to Forever 21’s website, and while scrolling through I came across a pair that look identical to the Tibi minus $300. Here’s the deal, they aren’t the same fabric. The style of the Tibi pants is much more structured than the Forever 21 rayon material. Don’t expect the Forever 21 grid pair to last you like the designer ones will. I’m a firm believer in investing in basic pieces, but culottes and black and white grid prints are both trends. Three years from now these adorable culottes wont be wearable anyway, so $40 is sounding a lot better than $375. YOU ARE WELCOME!

P.S. The culottes from Forever 21 also come with a matching colored top. Double wammy!!

Summer Lovin’

This is a look I put together last week while exploring South First in the lovely town of Austin. If you live or are visiting Austin, Texas you have to make a day trip to South First. There is the iconic Capital of Texas sign (pictured below) on the corner of South First and Annie on the back of Roadhouse Relics. Go during the day because mainly you’ll get to indulge in some  Gordoughs, get in a nice happy hour at Freddies and see all of the extremely random toy soldiers, stuffed animals, pictures, etc. on the side of every single telephone pole. Lots to take in!

Have a fabulous day!

{May} You LIve Happily Ever After // Wedding Wear

Hey beauties! HAPPY MAY!

As many of us are well aware of (thank you Facebook) it is wedding season! I really do enjoy this time of year; bring on the cake! As happy as this time is; it’s also frustrating as a guest finding something to wear. There seems to be so many “rules”… don’t offend the elders, no white, not too formal, not too sparkly, don’t outshine the bride, and I’m sure there are more, so RWR is here to make it a bit easier for you.

These three dresses are an ideal match for a spring/summer wedding. Bright colors and patterns are in, along with the 1940s inspired midi dress length; which is nice for a more modest church wedding. A nude chunky heel is an ideal shoe because pumps are only going to sink in the grass at outside venues and this thick heel makes it easier to walk and dance in. A DVF wrap dress (or wrap dress in general) was an obvious choice due to the timeless appeal and how flattering it looks on all body types and sizes (go up a size in DVF dresses).

Now that your outfit is on point, REMEMBER, and this will sound cliche, BUT don’t forget to have fun. Participate in the activities, smile, give that cousin you haven’t seen in years a big hug, dance with your friends from way back when and CELEBRATE!
