ASOS Top in Knit with Leather Look Sleeves

ASOS Top in Knit with Leather Look Sleeves

I may be late to the party, but I’m still obsessed with all things leather accented. Whether it’s faux or real, I’ve been lusting after pieces with leather panels and inserts for a fun edgy kick. This top from ASOS is a great affordable find with faux leather sleeves that kick up the style factor. ZARA, Mango, and Club Monaco also carry many similar pieces to this, but you just can’t beat the clearance price of just $21.19 right now on ASOS.

TOPSHOP Geek Sweat

TOPSHOP Geek Sweat

I’ve been self-described geek and nerd since the beginning. Maybe it was the 16-bit SEGA Genesis I first owned at age 5, teaching myself HTML and CSS at age 11, or being the only girl in my high school C++/Java class. Geekdom is neither something of my past nor something I hide; I embrace it! In any case, only TOPSHOP could come out with a geek meets chic sweatshirt that fits my life so precisely. Geeks unite!

Wallis Grey Zebra Tassle Wrap

Wallis Grey Zebra Tassle Wrap

Here’s something to cozy up in this fall, besides that old Snuggie. I love this fun wrap by Wallis because it’s got the warmth if a blanket, but the look of a shawl or knit poncho. Plus, it’s in animal print so it can easily spice up the plainest outfit, or let’s be honest, even those yoga pants.

Grey Ceramic Pink Rhodium Bracelet + Invite to Join Embly + $25 Gift Card at Ice

Grey Ceramic Pink Rhodium Bracelet

When it comes to statement jewelry, chunky chain link pieces are my fave. Ice’s Davos Collection is with me on this. The bracelet above is no chain you lock your bicycle up with, however. This lovely piece features grey ceramic and rosy pink rhodium-plated links that gleam and twinkle in the light in just the right way. At only $45, this is the bold accessory your collection lacks that you can actually afford.

What’s even more exciting is that you can buy this bracelet with even less of an impact on your wallet. I’m giving my readers a $25 gift card at Ice with a little help from a new social gifting service called Embly!

Embly - free $25 gift card at Ice

Embly is a new social gifting service that allows you to give real FREE gift cards to your friends through Facebook. The service is invite-only, but this gift will allow you to bypass the waitlist, immediately get in the service, and get your first gift. There’s no need to submit a contest entry or personal information to me – just click the link below and sign-in Embly to get your gift!

How does it work? Quite simply, retailers would rather spend their marketing budgets on you as opposed to traditional marketing methods. Embly turns those marketing dollars into free gifts that you can give to friends. Your friend gets a little spending money, the retailer gets a visit from a valued or new customer, and you get the thanks. Everyone wins.

Why use it? Embly gives you a fast and easy way to celebrate your friends, beyond just the Facebook timeline post that gets lost in the noise. Sending gifts on Embly is the smart way to let your friends know you’re thinking about them, whether it be as special as a “happy birthday”, frequent as a “TGIF”, or unique as a “thanks for picking up my dry cleaning, honey!” Use Embly’s website or iPhone app to easily and seamlessly send gifts to your friends, whenever and wherever. Once you’re in, you’re free to gift away!

What are all you shopaholics waiting for? Grab your gift quick because there’s a limited supply available. While this Ice gift card is something you can spend on yourself (duh), you can share it with your friends too! The free gifts don’t just stop there, so browse around the wide selection of free gifts to retailers like Beauty.com, ShoeDazzle, Rent the Runway, FragranceNet, Warby Parker, and many others.

Share what you gift and get! Be sure to share your purchases and gift stories with Embly on Facebook and @EmblyInc on Twitter. Embly’s Pinterest page even has tons of gift guides and shopping ideas if you’re stumped on what to get (a problem I would never have).

Now go, get gifting!

BCBGMAXAZRIA Moss Chiffon ‘Bessie’ Pintucked Tunic Blouse

BCBGMAXAZRIA Moss Chiffon 'Bessie' Pintucked Tunic Blouse

One of my favorite trends right now is colored denim, and while I’m slowing growing my collection of bright and pastel statement jeans, I now need neutral tops more than ever to pair them all with. I love this slate grey tunic by BCBGMAXAZRIA because it’s the perfect mate for bright pants. The fit is super casual yet the pintuck details make it so proper, and the details are very subdued . Seems like the perfect top blouse to throw on over a plain cami with said colored denim, and you’re out the door. Buying this in the two available colors may be the solution to me missing that bus in the morning so frequently. A lovely staple piece that will work with so many things.

Topshop Pinky Grey Structured Blazer

Topshop Pinky Grey Structured Blazer

When a piece is known as a “classic” I believe it’s perfectly reasonable to own it in several different colors. This piece from Topshop is just that – a structured blazer that will never go out of style. This dusty cross between pink and grey is to die for matched with dark denim, oversized sunnies, and chunky jewelry; pretty much everything I’m loving right now. Think timeless, look trendy.

Stone’s Throw Bootie

Stone's Throw Bootie

I love me a good bootie. For today’s fabulous Modcloth Monday pick I’ve chosen a seriously chic platform ankle boot in a cool, pebbled vegan faux suede. With a treaded no-slip sole, you can stride confidently across marbled office lobbies and safely traverse slick subway station floors easily in these puppies. Polished enough to wear with an office-appropriate dress and tights, but also rugged enough to rock with a leather jacket and skinnies for any other occasion, I’m just about ready to live in these booties all winter. Starting now.
