My Experience at Le Garage Sale

When one of my friends asked me last week if I was going to Le Garage Sale, I kind of started at her with confusion for a second wondering why I was just finding out LOL! Best believe I immediate went and signed up on their email list! If you’re not sure what the heck Le Garage Sale is let me fill you in on one of my favorite events in Austin.This isn’t your typical ‘ones man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ garage sale, dozens of local shops and boutiques set up shop and mark down prices insanely cheap making it impossible to say “no” to.

This is my third time attending and after having done a few, I felt the need to really share the inside scoop. I’ll never forget the first time I went, me and one of my good friends got there early and waited in line anticipating what it was going to be like and the very first booth was By George. Women were in there grabbing Givenchy boots for a quarter of the price. Say whaaaat! Every year I go, I try to find one special piece that I know I’ll have in my wardrobe for-ev-er! The first time I bough a $475 angora sweater for $75, and the second time I bought an edgy black romper from on of my favorite boutiques, Southern Hippie for $60! This time however, one of my besties and I hit the jackpot and just so happen to be at the right place at the right time. UAL was having “fill-a-bag” for $10! Anything you could fit in this bag was yours, and let me just tell you I came out on top. I think my favorite grab was a pair of white Current/Elliot jeans. They’re a little snug (and I’m so mad at myself for not grabbing the next size up!) but gives me incentive to start working on this booty, ha! I also grabbed tons of basic tops that can be paired with anything and everything and can we every have enough basics?! Didn’t think so!

Here are 3 pointers for your next Le Garage Sale…

1.) Make a list! The biggest thing for me at events like this is to have a list of everything I want or am looking for so I don’t get distracted (which can be easy to do!).
2.) Think ahead. You might find a lot of cute summer items but with fall just around the corner, make sure you can wear it in the next 6 months. No one wants to look back in a year and wonder why the heck they bought that.
3.) Wear comfy clothes. Some booths have pop-up dressing rooms, but for the ones that don’t you’ll have to try it on where you are. Leave the heels at home, you’re on a mission here!

The next Le Garage Sale is in January so be sure to sign up on their email list so you don’t miss out!!!

Nordstrom Beauty Picks



Last week on Instagram I shared that I would be incorporating a few of my beauty regimes here on the blog. I am so excited and have thought about it for a while now debating on if this is something my readers would enjoy. When I first started blogging I told myself I was going to strictly stick to fashion but lets be real here, there are so many times when we get ready for our day and try on 80 different outfits and just feel so blah because somethings missing. Once we volumize the hair, add a bit of makeup and put that same outfit back on, you suddenly just see it come together. To me, fashion and beauty go hand and hand which is why today I’m sharing a few of my absolute beauty favorites from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.

With face products I don’t mind spending a little extra because a lot of these products have skin care formulas in them that help nourish your skin while you’re wearing them. About 2 months ago I switched to the YSL Fusion Ink and fell in love. It’s silky and goes on your skin like satin, seriously, it’s amazing…plus you don’t need a primer (yesss!!!) and you don’t need much of it! Living in Texas, I love a good coverage foundation and this one does it without looking caked on. One oldie but goodie is Smashbox Halo Powder…this is all I used to wear without any foundation and it always gave a great natural look. I’ve been wanting to try this for a coverup so if you have, definitely comment below and me know how you feel about it because I totally want to know!  Probably my favorite product out of this entire bunch is this bronzer. Before I ever learned how to contour I used this all over my face and body and it instantly gave me a bronzed look without the crazy overdone shimmer. It’s one of the best investments always lasting me about 6 months and haven’t found another bronzer I love as much since.

If you’re looking for a brow fix, this is the best bang for your buck just be sure to have a light hand when applying if you’ve never used pomade before, there’s nothing worse than a crazy brow. Ah!
As for lips, I’m still on the search for one I can’t live without. For the longest I was obsessed with Obsessive Compulsive’s Lip Tar. A little goes a long way since they are pigmented and the cool thing is you can mix their white with any color to make it a shade lighter (repeat depending on the shade you’re going for).
Hope you enjoyed these beauty picks and comment below with your thoughts on beauty x fashion.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


one. two. three. four. five. six. seven.

It’s the sale we’ve all been waiting for! At least I know I have…kinda sad I had this written on my calendar 2 months ago?!

By now, I’m sure you’ve seen this all over your social media and wonder, what the heck is so great about it?! Well ladies, this is the sale we all love because you get first dibs on the newest fall goodies at supersale prices. I’ve been eyeing this sale since last week when it started, and my shopping cart is ridiculously full! Although this sale is fall items, I set out to find pieces you can totally still rock this summer- best part- they’re ALL under $100! This 3-pack earring set you can wear with everything, and for the price you totally can’t beat it. These slip-on’s come in three colors (loving the pewter leather) and an easy go-to when you need to get out the door!

Stone Pendant Necklace
Oversize Button Down
Skagen Leather Strap Watch
Mural Blazer Vest
Vince Camuto Aviator Sunglasses
‘Olson’ Pointy Toe Studded T-Strap Flat
Distressed Skinny Jeans

In case you’re not a Nordstrom card holder, the sale opens up to the public tomorrow! Xx
