When a representative from Ricki’s asked me if I would like to test drive a few pieces from their fall collection, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to pick out a new autumn look.  After a full-store (and website!) browse, along with helpful recommendations from the sales staff, I decided on a vest/tunic/leggings  look.  This is a slight departure from my everyday style because at the moment, my leggings tend to be reserved for work-out and lounge attire (this is a ridiculous mental block as I have no problem wearing slim-fit pants, which are essentially just thicker leggings…).

Vest:  c/o Ricki’s  {I have actually been wanting a nice faux fur vest for a few seasons now, but I was unable to find something at a decent price point that didn’t look inherently cheap.  This vest is incredibly soft and is of much better quality than the other options I considered in the past}
Blouse:  c/o Ricki’s
Leggings:  c/o Ricki’s  {they keep their shape quite well!}
Necklace:  c/o Ricki’s
Bracelets:  both c/o Ricki’s (here and here)
Purse:  Le Chateau {old}
Boots:  Enzo Angiolini {simliar}
Sunglasses:  Aldo

PS: I’m giving away a $50 gift card to Ricki’s – check back early next week for details!

Holiday Gift Idea – Jewelry

*sponsored post

As the holidays approach, I have starting thinking about my gift-list.  For the last few years I have tried to purchase gifts that retain value (beyond the initial surprise on Christmas morning).  Recently, I have been thinking about buying my sister jewelry for the holidays.  Jewelry is known to keep it’s value, and in a time of economic instability, it seems like a good investment (as compared to other more-disposable gifts).  Anjolee is an online jewelry retailer that allows you to fully customize your jewelry purchase – for instance bangle bracelets, rings and necklaces can be made with different metals (white gold, yellow gold, platinum), plus you can chose a variety of diamond sizes, and diamond quality.  By completely customizing your purchase, you can be sure you are getting exactly what you want, within an appropriate budget. In addition, Anjolee guarantees that all their diamonds are certified as conflict-free (read more about that here).
