“Must have Top” Friday


Have you ever thought, “I have nothing to wear…?” If you are a human in heels you will answer “Of course, all the time!” Have you ever thought how does this happen? I found the answer, girls! We love shopping, right? We buy so many pretty things that we might wear once or twice and this is it! First of all we waste our money, second we damage nature by throwing it out.

This is why I decided to write about “Must Have” items every Friday. We will find here my favorite clothes, make up, skin care,  that I cannot live without.

I will start with my recent purchase at “BCBG MaxAzria”. I’m a big fan of this brand, always beautiful design combined with great quality! I have some pieces from BCBG that I’ve been wearing for years and are still very stylish!  The number one thing I need in my closet is my favorite pair of jeans and couple “ready to go” tops. They have to be comfortable, simple, and chic. Not easy to find those, right? This is what  BCBG MaxAzria is the best at! Their tops are to die for!


I got this multi strap cutout Sleeveless Top in Burnt Orange a couple weeks ago at the Premium Fashion Outlet in Orlando, FL. I got it for only $63! What a find! For the summer we need something light and colorful, multi straps, that show off shoulders from the best side and that can worn in the  daytime with my favorite Free People ripped jeans or for a date night with a sexy skirt.


I have a couple multi strap tops in my closet in different colors and finally I have no question how to look stylish any part of the day!

Here are my favorite tops from BCBG MaxAzria:




Michael Kors The Gold Fragrance Collection.


Michael Kors announces the next chapter of the Michael Kors Collection fragrances: The Gold Collection. Each of the three individual scents was designed to reflect the opulence and luxury of the highly prized metal- from white, to 24K, to rose gold.

Why gold? Because it embodies the luxe glamour of the Michael Kors woman and has become a hallmark of Michael’s world- from lustrous fabrics and sun-kissed skin to high-shine hardware and gilded jewelry.

“There is nothing sexier than a woman with a beautiful glow after an amazing vacation- and nothing complements that glow better than shimmering gold jewelry and a hint of fragrance that feels just as opulent and glamorous.” – Michael Kors



The three distinctive fragrances at the heart of this collection were each carefully chosen and constructed with the Michael Kors woman in mind, offering a scent for every occasion, mood and personal aesthetic.

  • WHITE LUMINOUS GOLD: Sparkling and sensuous, White Luminous Gold is an intoxicating burst of pear, jasmine and amber in a bright and exotic signature.
  • 24K BRILLIANT GOLD: Feminine and seductive, 24K Brilliant Gold shimmers with orange mandarin, voluptuous florals and a rousing spark of woodiness.
  • ROSE RADIANT GOLD: Tantalizing and hypnotic, Rose Radiant Gold entices with a spotlight on sparkling fruits, textured with a charming femininity of rich florals and soft musks.

Michael Kors The Gold Collection Fragrances

I am a big fan of Michael Kors in general, and I was very excited about the collaboration with such an amazing brand. Honestly, I never tried Michael Kors fragrance collections before. For the fall season, I chose for myself 24K Brilliant Gold and I was absolutely amazed. Citrus and wood scents make me fill so cozy, feminine and confident. Now I use it every day. It is suitable any season and occasion! If you are like me and never tried it before please give it a chance and  you will be satisfied. You can get it at any beauty store and www.MichaelKors.com

Celebrating with DITTO


Thank you to all my loyal followers for helping me reach 30K on Instagram!  This is all about you! Without you this journey would not be possible! Thank you for all your support and love! This is a perfect occasion to share with you my secret to wearing designer Sunglasses.  If you’re like me, you hate dropping $500 plus for designer sunglasses knowing you will be tired of the pair within a few months.  This is why when Ditto.com approached me I couldn’t resist.  You know by now that I don’t advertise products unless I truly believe in one and its mission.  Ditto.com allows me to rent designer luxury sunglasses for only $24.99 a month.  What a great idea!  This month my sunglass rental was a chic Prada pair that I was dreaming about forever.  I would have to pay nearly $625 to own this pair and knowing myself, I wouldn’t be wearing them this time next year.  A year of rentals at Ditto.com would only cost me $300 per year and I can try on as many pairs as my heart desires.  You can style your outfits with different shapes, styles, and colors and they come within a few days!  Of course you want to try it!  Use my code HEELOFFORTUNE when sign up and get your first month free and I promise you will fall in love as fast as I did.

Anticipation for #HMBalmainNation has been building ever since Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner debuted head-to-toe looks from the collaboration alongside designer Olivier Rousteing at the Billboard Music Awards in May. Then just last week, 99 still life images of the collection leaked online before Instagram shut down the account from which they originated.


Just hours before the much-anticipated runway show debut of Balmain’s collection for H&M, designer Olivier Rousteing sat down for two consecutive press conferences in downtown New York City on Tuesday with Vogue Runway’s Nicole Phelps and H&M’s Head of Design, Ann-Sofie Johansson. Rousteing discussed his favorite pieces, how he hopes to satisfy the brand’s fans and, of course, what kinds of compromises the luxury house had to reach with the fast fashion retailer in order to translate the couture pieces into accessible prices.

“I was like more, more, more, and you were like, ‘Yes, it’s fine more but just a little bit less,'” said Rousteing, referring to Johansson and laughing. “We managed to make it happen, to find our compromise. I think Ann-Sofie wanted longer dresses and I wanted shorter. I wanted really, really, high heels and she went, ‘Let’s do 2 [centimeters] less, we’ll be fine.'” Johansson agreed, noting that the dress lengths in the collection are still quite short.

Despite designing dresses that cost over $16,000 as his day job, Rousteing says he understands the importance of the collaboration’s affordability on a personal level. “[Ten years ago] I would watch the fashion shows of the big brands and I wished I could afford this jacket, I wished I could be a part of this world and this universe,” he said. “Many of my followers are like, ‘I wish I could have that, I wish I could have that,’ so I tried to make sure that the aesthetic of what we pulled out was close to what they want.”

Rousteing likened the collection to fireworks — it’s going to last only “two or three minutes,” thanks to the industry’s lightening-fast pace and how quickly the pieces are likely to sell out, but it will be an unforgettable experience that he said will “refresh” the brand with youthful, cool excitement. “Fireworks in the middle of my career, fireworks in the middle of Balmain, fireworks in the middle of H&M,” he said.


The look book only confirms what the leaked images revealed much to the Internet’s approval: Balmain for H&M looks just like real Balmain, at least in pictures. Women’s silhouettes are expectedly body-hugging and shoulders are pronounced. Pants are super voluminous or very tight. There’s more velvet, baroque-style jacquard, dense beading, cord and metallic thread detailing than one would expect for the price point. Accessories include waist-cinching belts, thigh-high boots, embellished clutches, chandelier earrings and even headphones (not pictured below). The outerwear is the best part of the men’s collection, featuring military-inspired double-breasted coats and zipper-covered leather jackets festooned with gold patches, trim or buttons. It’s all gilded and gaudy and over-the-top — just like Balmain. And now that H&M has ventured into beauty, the collaboration also includes a limited edition fragrance.

You’ll be able to shop the collection starting on Nov. 5 in 250 select H&M stores worldwide and online. The fragrance, however, won’t launch until Dec. 5. After plenty of teases — from spotting pieces on the red carpet to Instagram photos and campaign images starring Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Jourdan Dunn — the images for the collection have finally been released, and everything looks so good. Waiting to shop just got a whole lot harder!


Writer’s block

Hey everyone, I am back from my vacation or as most people would call it, writer’s block, but I didn’t have my creative juices at 100% so I needed to take some time off to recharge!  But here I am, back and better than ever.   I took the time off to reflect on my blog and the content that I was sharing with all of you.  I didn’t feel special about me, and looking at thousands of pictures of beautiful models in designer dresses which obviously someone who is a reguIar working girl can’t afford, caused me to begin to question my outer beauty.   Lots of women can not style themselves after the top models because it just is not affordable. We need to be creative in how  we use or budget to get the most out of it.  I can’t be alone in this constant struggle!   I want to keep sharing with you my tips about how to stretch a budget to keep your outward appearance flawless.   If your parents or husband isn’t a millionare, stay tuned for many great tips and advice on how to present yourself with all the class and beauty for a fraction of the cost!

A special thank to Shabbyappple for the collaboration and the beautiful skirt you shared with me which was my inspiration for the current shoot. You can use there skirts for everything from photo shoots to fancy events. Simply adding a beautiful top and a necklace and you are ready to go for any occasion.
