Best of ShopBop sale under $50

Initially I was gonna do all my favorites under $100 but I went through almost 1000 items before the $$$ even hit over $50 using their extra 25% SALE code. So instead I decided to do my favorite sale items that will cost you $50 or less using the code HELLO2019 on select sale items from ShopBop. By scrolling though the lookbooks you can just clock on an image to get directed to the product. The sale ends on 1/4 and some items are selling out fast.




Fall Looks with Quiz Clothing

These past couple weeks have been especially hard on me, Midterms then finals and on top of that Thanksgiving and a 3 week long cold/flu thats been really setting me back. Ive really tried to create as much content as possible but sometimes you just need a break. I am done with all my finals in 2 weeks and then its Christmas already. Where did this year go? 

Its finally time to layer up with fall and winter clothes and I received some pieces from Quiz. These looks feature my favorite pieces and some styling tips for fall. 

The Palazzo Pant

One of my favorite thins this year is simple pieces that you can mix and match no matter what. These cute high waisted palazzo pants from Quiz are perfect for any fall day. Pair with a chunky sweater and some booties for a more dressed up look. 

The Leopard Blazer

I love anything Leopard for this season and this blazer is the perfect add-on to a casual look. I paired it just with a simple dark jean and black long sleeve turtleneck crop top.

New from Brahmin

Brahmin was kind enough to send me one of their new bags. The Priscilla Melbourne Mini Satchel in color Tart/Gold. This is the first Brahmin bag that I own and I am already in love with it. If you know me, you know that I love smaller bags and a mini satchel is exactly what I needed to add to my collection.

Since this is my first bag from Brahmin and also a new brand for me I wanted to talk a little bit about the brand and their vision. Im sure a lot of you may be familiar with the brand. But I’m sure that a lot of you, just like me just recently discovered them. 

Brahmin was founded in 1982, so yeah they have been around for a while now! They pride themselves on having some of the best quality materials and a lot of their elater goods are imported from Italy. All products are hand made in Massachusetts and one single product can have as many as two-dozen people work on it until it has been finished. 

Before even making a sample bag in leather, they use paper to create a sample. Making it easy to correct and perfect the design until it is actually made. You can also learn about the different materials and textures of their products on Brahmins website. 

The Priscilla Melbourne Mini Satchel in color is one of Brahmins Top Seller as of this moment. Below I had e linked a few other items that are hot right now from Brahmin. 

I was gifted the bag via Octoly. Octal isa  app where you can get free items form major brands in exchange for posting/reviewing them on your social. You need at lest 5000 Instagram followers to be approved, but if you do have that and sign up via my link you get 5 extra octo-points that later can be used to get gift cards to major stores like Amazon and Sephora.
