The Rustic Shop Has Some Cool SH**

I have recently been introduced to the store The Rustic Shop and they have some super cool merchandise. I am loving their clothing selections right now. Normally anything that even hints at country I cringe at but The Rustic Shop does a good job at masking the hoe-down feel. Since I am loving it I thought maybe you should too so here are some awesome pieces I have found that I think you might like too!

Handbag Heresy

Handbag Heresy

Handbag Heresy

 

 

I feel like a trader.  I doubted Betsey and my commitment to her when I should not have.  I could not for the life of me find a new handbag that I loved at any of my fave online stores! Every year for Christmas I search far and wide to find the Betsey bag I of my dreams. Unfortunately this year I could not.  This particular bag was sold out everywhere or only available in a semi hideous color of pink and orange which under normal circumstances I might have loved but when comparing between that and leopard print there really is no competition.
Then I tried to find any bag that was awesome, by any designer. I hang my head in shame while I am typing that statement. Even then, I still couldn’t find one, which made me terribly sad. Almost inconsolable in fact. I lost the will to shop for a short period of time and gave up my search. Betsey bags are my heart and soul. My bag choices are a reflection of me, even on my shabbiest of days. I can look at my new (or old) bag and think if I were an inanimate object I would look just like this. My selection each holiday or birthday season is a process that my OCD takes very seriously. This year didn’t even feel like Christmas after this debacle.
After forever searching high and low and the holiday season being way over what did I find?!?!?! My bag of course! The Betsey Johnson Tough Love Tote in LEOPARD PRINT! Not only was it available but it was almost 1/2 the price! Oh handbag gods, and my personal savior Betsey Johnson I vow to never go against the laws of fierceness again. I shall repent and say 10 Hail Betsey’s until I feel cleansed.
I cannot tell you how in love with this bag I am. I find myself staring at it wondering how I ever got so lucky to possess such a work of art. If you love Betsy the way I do you better get to shopping because right now you can receive 10% off $50 + FS using promo code FEBBJ10 at Betsey Johnson!.

Why Peplum Is A Big Girls Best Friend

So we all know it is obvious I am not the skinniest bloggette ever so generally when I talk about fashion or clothes I don’t have too much of an idea what you ultra skinny and/or in shape people do or feel like in the latest fashions. I can really only assume. I am in heaven however now that peplum is back because my fat ass needs all of the fashion help I can get when pretending to be stylish and less round than usual. I was so excited about peplum I went out and bought one too many peplum and dresses in hopes that this style will last for a little while but Forever 21 had so many adorbs choices I couldn’t say no!

Peplum Bow Top

Peplum Bow Top

 

 

The Peplum Bow Top from Forever 21 is only $22.80 and comes in Royal Blue and Peach. I chose peach because pastel colors are where it’s at right now and I have a super cute pair of floral jeans that this shirt will match with perfectly. The ruffled bottom of the shirt hides one of the most annoying buldges ever. Ladies you know the one I am talking about. Whether you have had babies or not the ovary area as I call it will forever be a tad plumper than the rest of you for almost all ladies. This is the exact reason why I love peplum!

 

 

Geo Peplum Bodycon Dress

Geo Peplum Bodycon Dress

 

 

The Geo Peplum Bodycon Dress is super sexy. It actually made me less fat and made my caboose look much smaller than it is in reality! I was beyond excited when I put this dress on let me tell you! Not only is is peplum, the design is super cute and it sucks things in in a non-uncomfy way! I had to have it plus it is only $22.80.

 

Basic Peplum Dress

Basic Peplum Dress

 

 

 

The Basic Peplum Dress was too good to pass up because it is only $17.80. Besides that the color is beautious and can go with a bunch of my shoes and accessories I already have. Plus it has short sleeves which is cute and adds a little extra coverage for the fall months. I think the color is excellent with my skin tone as well and since I normally wear so much black it is nice to change it up with some bright color for once.

 

Sophisticated Leopard Peplum Dress

Sophisticated Leopard Peplum Dress

 

 

 

The Sophisticated Leopard Peplum Dress was an obvious no brainer. Leopard print and peplum! Let’s be honest that has me written all over it! The colors are perfect for fall and winter! You can wear a blazer and some super hot booties and be on your way. You don’t even need accessories because the dress is busy enough on its own. Once again at $22.80 for an entire dress that you can wear both to work or out is almost like it is free.

 

I Don’t Pop Molly’s I Rock Tom Ford

So not only do I love the Jay-Z song I Dont Pop Molly I Rock Tom Ford but I really actually do heart Tom Ford. I feel like since this song is so awesome perhaps we should give Mr. Ford some credit for being equally as awesome. i do however wonder where Mr. Z got the title for his song but that is really neither here nor there at the moment. I love me some Jay – Z and let’s be honest that his new album Magna Carta…Holy Grail is kind of really awesome (way better than Yeesus…sorry Kanye)! Since that is the case I want you to enjoy some of my faves from both Hov and Mr. Ford!

 

Obviously I would start with I Dont Pop Molly I Rock Tom Ford [Explicit] because it is a good song and the title of this post! If you haven’t heard it you are losing at life so get to it now and listen!  There is something about this entire album that is exactly what you expect from Jay-Z.  It is completely his style but he seriously stepped his game up.  He always acts so non-chalante about his music and why he is so good at what he does.  I guess when you are that talented and know it you have nothing left to prove and it just comes so naturally it is just a part of who you are.

Carli Sunglasses

Carli Sunglasses

 

The Carli Sunglasses are super hot! They are almost Cat-eye shaped but more on the square side. The color is called Violet Havana which is perfect for the Fall! The brown and purple go beautifully together.  I know huge sungalsses aren’t everyones cup of tea but those are the only kind I will wear. What is the point of sun glasses if they can’t cover your entire face! I mean really!

 

 

Now if you haven’t heard Holy Grail it sort of reminds me of the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack which may be crazy but it does. This mix further proves that Young can do no wrong apparently because he has successfully managed to mesh the two in a way that makes you want to rock out and get your swag on!

 

Tom Ford Noir

Tom Ford Noir

 

You can’t really talk about Tom ford with out mentioning Tom Ford Noir. Noir is what many people know Tom Ford for and so they should. Noir is a classic and delish fragrance. Every time I smell it on someone I instantly know they have good taste and they are allowed to be my friend.

 

Hard Knock Life is a classic so I had to mention it! I do realize this is not on Jays’ new album but I don’t really care. Every time this song comes on I still rock out to it like it’s the first time I’ve heard it. I think anyone who is a fan of Jay-Z will agree with me. Even if you aren’t a fan of him there is no way this song can’t bring back some great memories of the 90′s and its anthems.

Nastasya Sunglasses

Nastasya Sunglasses

 

 

The Nastasya Sunglasses are a pair of real cay-eye glasses which I have always been in love with. I know they are somewhat similar to the glasses above but we all want a hot pair of cat-eye sunglasses and you can’t deny that Tom Ford sunglasses are usually where it’s at. This pair has been seen on the likes of Miley Cyrus, Kourtney Kardashian, and Rihanna. I know the first two are somewhat of a deterrent but despite you can’t deny they all definitely have a great (maybe not Miley) sense of style.

 

 

While I have so many more Jay-Z songs I could write about I really couldn’t leave out 99 Problems. As per usual this song most definitely brings back memories but besides that is another tune that gets you pumped. It is one of those songs that is always on either my iPod or iPhone. I can’t go anywhere without it. This may not be one of his most memorable or defining songs but I don’t think I care. I love it and that is really all that matters.

Hair Accessories To Bring The Back to School Heat

One thing I am still trying to get the hang of is doing my hair. I am beyond ill equipped at styling it. I generally leave it unbrushed and messy which luckily for me works because it can be super curly or just wavy enough depending on the weather and thanks to all y’all grungy hipsters I can get away with the messy do and I simply look trendily homeless. Here are some super cute hair accessories I am drooling over that are semi-in the back to school spirit and won’t break your piggy bank while trying to look cute!

Leopard Pillbox Headband

Leopard Pillbox Headband

 

 

This hot little number is to die seriously! I know this isn’t exactly the every day hair accessory but for dress up events to give yourself a little sass! The Leopard Pillbox Headband is completely vintage style but let’s face it we all are crushing on the fascinator deal since the Royal Wedding so it isn’t to very far out of the realm of possibilities to wear on a semi regular basis if you have the guts.

 

 

 

Braided Multi-Color Headwrap

Braided Multi-Color Headwrap

 

 

 

Braided Multi-Color Headwrap is yet another throw back to previously less stylish era’s but leave it to the hipsters to mix the 80′s colors and fabrics with the hippies sense of freedom! These headbands can either push your hair back like the classic headband will do or you can go hippie and wear it around your head to add some added style to your new school duds.  You can mix and match with soo many different colors and patterns its really only makes sense to have it in your hair arsenal and it’s only $3.80.

 

 

 

Floral Mustache Hair Clips

Floral Mustache Hair Clips

 

 

 

Floral Mustache Hair Clips are every Etsy lover/Brooklyn inhabitants dream hair accessory! I am a big fan of alligator clips! You can use them to just throw your hair on top of your head and get a move on.  I also like that the clips are mismatched so you can wear them seperately or together! This late 80′s/90′s repeat of floral patterns is a super exciting come back actually and one that I am happy to have come back! This fab set will only set you back a mere  $3.80 to be way cute!
