Rock Candy


New dress – Forever 21, New purse – Nasty Gal, Shoes – Steve Madden Dynemite, bracelet – c/o LYLIF

I finally got my hands on a the perfect black, suede, studded, fringe bucket bag from Nasty Gal! I had about 5 different fringe bags on my wishlist, but Nasty Gal’s won out. I actually love everything on their website and never really delved into the site for a few months because I thought they only sell really expensive shoes. Which they do, but they also have an amazing clothing and accessory line (which is more affordable)! But anyways I’ve been seeing these type of fringe bags everywhere in the blogging atmosphere and it really seems to go with everything casual. I love it!

I did the oh-so-popular mixing floral with edgy look, and it was really fun. A lot of people mentioned they really liked my dress. Of course it’s from Forever 21… and only cost $11.50 πŸ™‚

Today I spent a few hours at the beach with my boyfriend. It is about a 45 minute drive so we don’t like to go very often, but it was really the perfect day to go as temps reached 82 degrees, and that mixed with the cold sea breeze feels just right! We tried eating out at a new Greek place, and it was SO good. Love finding new places to eat, and Greek food is absolutely delicious!

P.S Don’t forget to enter the Love giveaway, that ends on May 10th

    I love this look, Jess. You are totally rockin' it. Your new fringe bag is fabulous. πŸ™‚ I can't believe you have to drive 45 minutes to the beach. πŸ™ It's weird to think that I would need to drive that far… because there are just so many beaches here on Maui. I live only 2 minutes from the nearest one. And when I look out my window, I see the ocean. Sometimes, I take for granted living in "paradise". hehehe.xx Love & Aloha

    You look amazing! REALLY amazing! This dress is so cute and the bag was the best purchase! Being a Greek, I had to comment and say that indeed Greek food is delicious and that's why most Greek girls have (too many) curves hahaha πŸ˜›

    Love that you wear pieces from less expensive stores (like Forever 21). It's refreshing to see that in a world of bloggers wearing their overpriced "name" brands that they don't even pay for. πŸ™‚

    Wow, I can't believe that dress was $11.50! I feel like I never find cute stuff at cheap prices like that at F21! Everything I see there is like $30! πŸ™ Except the super plan stuff at ~$12-14. boo! I'll have to search harder then!Love the shoes too!And 45 min isn't so bad from the beach! We have to drive 2 hrs lol ;( And it's getting SO hot here, 93 in Sac. boo! And that's great you guys tried out a new restaurant! Love Greek food!
