Blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (The Limited) | Leggings (c/o Marshalls)  Riding boots (c/o Marshalls) | Handbag (Phillip Lim for Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox)    How many times and how many ways can I say that I love a classic blazer?  For fall, I'm all about a classic look, so my fall shopping list looks a little like this:  blazers, white button down shirt, riding books, peep-toe booties (more trendy than classic), coat, and more blazers.     During a recent shopping trip to Marshalls, I was able to mark two items off my list.  And you want to know the best part?  Both pieces were under $40 each.  It was so easy to Read More ...

New Orleans Saints tee (c/o Touch by Alyssa Milano) | Button-down shirt (The Limited) | French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) Steve Madden lace booties (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories) | Bracelet and Ring (RocksBox)   You should know by now that I'm always going to do something a little different to make my Game Day look unique; to make it stand out from the crowd.  I mean, if you go to a game the chance that someone else is wearing the same team apparel that you have on is pretty high.  And I've never been one who wants to look like everyone else, which is why I don't own any Read More ...

Post image for Marshalls Fall Fashion Sneak Peek

I can't say enough about how much I love fall fashion (every fall fashion post will probably start with me saying some variation of this statement).  I recently had a very successful shopping trip to Marshalls and can't wait to share my fab finds and my final look. If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then this blazer looks familiar to you.  I mean, elbow patches and quilted boots.  What more do I need to say?  Boots and blazers are two of my favorite things about fall.  What are some of your favorite things about fall fashion?     Love shopping at Marshalls as much as I do?  Be sure Read More ...

French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) | Philosophy blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (c/o Marshalls) Heels (Dillard's) | Necklace (c/o Versona Accessories)   If I had to submit one look that epitomizes my style, this would be it.  I love absolutely everything about this look (and it screams "private school girl", am I right?  I do love a cute school girl look) and finding these pieces in one Marshalls shopping trip is why I love Marshalls.   On this particular shopping trip I went specifically looking for a new handbag or new shoes for fall, but when I go to Marshalls I can never just shop one section.  I look at everything – handbags, shoes, Read More ...

Saints tee (c/o Nike) | Skirt (The Limited) | Guess booties (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse c/o Concord Mills) Necklace, Bracelet, Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories)   I was recently introduced to a shop called Versona Accessories when they contacted me to tell me about the Grand Opening of a new location in Charlotte.  Versona Accessories itself is not new nor new to the Charlotte area, but for some reason it had escaped my attention. When they first contacted me I thought it would be all accessories in the store, but once I visited their website I saw that they sell everything – clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, home decor, scarves, and more.  Not only that, Read More ...

Grey tee (Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox) | Michael Kors frames (c/o Advanced Eye Care)   I was recently contacted by RocksBox about trying their jewelry subscription service.  I was intrigued because (a) I love jewelry, (b) I don't have nearly enough of it, and (c) I'd been looking for a "box" service that would fit my needs.  Well, signing up was easy.  I took a survey about my style and before I knew it my first RocksBox had arrived.  How does it work?  You're assigned a stylist who picks out 3 pieces for you.  My first box contained a necklace (see below), bracelet (see here), and earrings.  My second box contained Read More ...

There's a funny story behind these heels.  Remember when I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico Memorial Day weekend with my best friend, Alexia?  Well, our first day there, we were out walking looking for dinner.  We both had on out cute but comfortable shoes, because we didn't know how much walking we would do before we decided where we wanted to eat.  I had on a pair of my favorite caged sandals from Marshalls, the tan Nine West sandals, and Alexia wore her cute wedge sandals that she got from an outdoors store.  Being from an outdoors store, you just know that they will be durable and very comfortable for Read More ...
