Trends: Sneaker Wedge

Trends: Sneaker Wedge






    Alright, we've all been hearing about these and seeing them on celebrities everywhere. The sneaker wedge, much like most trends, has been pretty controversial. Some people love it and some people hate it. And some people have named it the worst trend of 2012. But I say, if Giuseppe Zanotti is on the boat, it can't be that bad! What do you think? What is your opinion on the sneaker wedge?




Sneaker Wedge: How to Style it






    Here are a couple examples of How To Style the Sneaker Wedge. I actually really want a pair of high tops! I just bought a pair of sneakers from Zara. They should be here Thursday, so I will post em when they get here! Tell me what you guys think?

Would you wear them?

Sequin Dresses under $100

Sequin Dresses under $100

Sequin Dresses under $100 by jocelynngraves featuring cut out dresses

   Hey loves! I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving. As we all know, the Holiday's are upon us! So, time to break out the glitz, glitter, embellishments, and sequins of course. Now, I have posted a few outfit ideas on ways to make a sequins dress more versatile by pairing with different tops. Most sequin dresses are at a higher price point so, it's better for your bank account, and it's fun to get creative finding different ways to wear one piece. I haven't had a chance to take pictures in my dress. However, I will post the pictures I put up on my Instagram below. 

   Here are a few sequin dresses I love, that are all under $100! Perfect for a night out or a Holiday party!




   I received a lot of questions regarding the pieces I'm wearing. The dress is from Bebe. The black Jacquard peplum top, as well as the blue chiffon top, are both from Forever21. My peep-toe pumps are Steve Madden.

Thanksgiving Booties



Happy Thanksgiving loves! I am ready for some turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie! In the meantime, I thought I would put together a quick post! I'm going casual and conservative this Thanksgiving. I went with the trending color this Fall, maroon skinnies, and paired them with suede booties!











Rhinestone and cross accent jewelry add a little sparkle to my look!












These suede studded booties from Zara were the focus of my outfit. Suede booties are a must-have for Fall and this Holiday Season. I absolutely loved the color and gold stud detail. They're also extremely comfortable which is a plus!

Pink & Peplum


Let's talk trends. Peplum tops, dresses, skirts, and jackets have been trending this Fall and are going to be going full force this Holiday season. A peplum top is a great piece because of it's versatility. It can be worn with pants or a skirt and dresses up a more casual ensemble with ease.





This Jacquard Peplum Top was a total steal for under $20 from Forever21. Comparing this to other similar tops going for $69 up to the $100s, it was an amazing deal for less. It's very well made and out of a rich, sturdy material.  I absolutely love it. Perfect for a night out, paired with leather leggings or a skirt and tights for a Holiday party.

Sunglasses: Forever21
