So.. you knew this was coming, right? Every girl should own a LBD (Little Black Dress, for those of you living under a rock), but what about the little white dress we’ve seen gracing the runways and streets? I know, if you’re anything like me, you’re already trying to figure out how to pull off this look without resembling a toddler in “Sunday’s best”. It’s a difficult trend to pull, but with the right elements -you’re bound to nail your favorite look. So for the TOTW (Thing of the Week.. you poor, deprived rock-living people), I’m giving all of my ladies a fair share of the very trendy LWD. I hope you’ll find that one of our looks fits your style to a T. Have an awesome weekend and remember.. light dress, light food! Wine comes in all different colors, you know? *thumbs up* Later, babes. - M

Girl’s Night Out:
Hi babes! Man, have I missed you guys! It’s been madness around here and I’ve been absolutely itching to get a post up! So.. this has been a hidden secret of mine for some time. But like all ‘unknown’ things, they must eventually come to an end (of being unknown that is, lol). Urbanog.com has been my all-time favorite shoe website for the following reasons:
They are so decently priced, it is RIDIC. I think that alone makes for a keeper in my book! Ranging from $7.00 (yes, seven dot zero zero!) – $50.00
They very often try to emulate other styles out in the fashion industry and are very edgy when trying new looks. New looks can be seen DAILY!
There is almost ALWAYS a sale, promo code, deal-of-the-day or free shipping that pulls me in for the win. Enroll in the emails. They. Are. Worth. Every. Penny!
So, today we are featuring my favorite site! I decided to put Urbanog.com up against some fierce competition: Bakers Shoes and Aldo Shoes.
I’ve had several pairs of shoes from all three and I can definitely say that confort wise, they are all different. Urbanog is usually true to size, while Aldo Shoes is usually a snug fit (due to the fact that they want you to ‘break them in’ as I was so kindly told by the sales girl), and with Bakers carrying brands like Jessica Simpson, MIA and Nicole Lee – They can all differ! While we all know that Bakers and Aldo can carry some hefty price tags, I’m here to show you just how comparable they can be. I’ve listed below some of our top contenders.. and well, you can be the judge! Kisses*

The time is near! New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and what better way to bring in the New Year then a glitter nail tutorial? While majority go for the silver and gold, I opted for the pink, barely-there hue & glitter! Essie’s newest collection “LuxEffects” had me pretty sold. Though, I was never really fond of the glitter-nail look, per say.. The consistency of the glitter is much more real for me. I can’t handle the same-sized specs of glitter that only shimmer in the light. Essie’s take on the glitter is Tres Magnifique! The dimensional specs pull light from all angles and REALLY let it all shine. Send me your styles to firstname.lastname@example.org or use hashtag #SCGlitter. I can’t wait to see!
What you’ll need: The “essentials” for prepping (acetone, files, cuticle pusher/cutter, Ms.Manicure lotion). Essie nail polish in “A Cut Above” and “Eternal Optimist” and Scotch tape.
