Ring Styling with Invaluable.com!

Hello beautiful people!
It’s a habit of most people to plan or buy an outfit and then accessorize, but why can’t we do the opposite? Buy a fantastic accessory and plan an outfit around it. Whether you’re heading out for a party or heading to the grocery store – a gorgeous ring can add class and excitement to any outfit!

I’ve chosen rings from Invaluable, the world’s largest premier marketplace, to show you guys how I would style outfits based on rings from their site!
Invaluable has over 10,000 rings for their bidders to choose from for incredible prices. Not to mention all the other items they have from watches, to clothing to furniture!

I chose to style two outfits, one for everyday casual and one for evening, to show that rings can be the biggest impact of an outfit. After all, our hands are what we use to eat, talk, and drink – they are a focal point and we should show them off with amazing accessories!

First casual:

I myself am super partial to vintage jewelry, so when I saw this gorgeous sapphire flower ring I couldn’t resist. I think this is a perfect ring to wear every day and add a little something to your outfit.
I would pair this with black tights, ankle boots, a slouchy sweater, a small purse and a dark blue scarf to compliment the ring. People will not be able to stop looking at your hand while wearing a ring like this, and the outfit emphasized the unique style and colour.
Tights: Aritzia
Sweater: Urban Outfitters
Booties: Steve Madden
Scarf: Anthropologie
Bag: Aldo
Ring: Invaluable (Link above)

Evening:

The ring I chose for my evening outfit definitely makes a statement. This ring is opal and mother of pearl in quite a large setting, which makes it the star of the show! I would keep my outfit relatively simple, pair this baby with a little black dress, a black purse and some nude heels to compliment the colours in the ring and let it dazzle from my hand!
Dress: Forever 21
Shoes: Christian Louboutin 
Purse: Tory Burch
Ring: Invaluable (Link above)

There you have it! Obviously everyone has different tastes and styles but that’s that great thing about Invaluable, they have something for everyone!

Until next time my loves,

Date night outfit and make-up look!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and got up to some super fun things!
Right now in Toronto there’s a thing called summerlicious going on! Restaurants have three course lunches and dinners on for super cheap, it’s a good chance to try out new places and new foods. Carmen and I decided to make a date night out of it on Friday, so we picked a restaurant off the summerlicious list and had an awesome dinner at Milestones which I wouldn’t have normally picked, but I was really impressed!
Since Friday was a date night I figured I’d do a little post about my outfit and make up for the night!

It was pretty hot on Friday so I decided to go with a striped cotton dress that I picked up at Target a few weeks ago, I think it was around 30$, my necklace is from Urban Outfitter and it was about $20, my sandals are from DSW, I picked them up in Cleveland last summer and I think they were $50. My purse is vintage I got it at Black Market and it was $10. I really wanted to keep my outfit simple and fun, not to mention comfortable (and a little stretchy) since we ended up eating a TON of food.

I wanted my make-up look to be a little smoky but nothing too dramatic!
Foundation : Estee lauder double wear in 1C1 cool bone ($45), I just buffed this all over my skin
Concealer: NARS radiant creamy concealer in Chantilly ($32), I used this on any blemishes and under my eyes
Brows: I use Omega eye shadow ($19) from MAC and apply it with a MAC 266 brush ($22)
eye lid primer : Urban decay primer potion ($22)
eye shadow : Naked 2 palette ($62) I used bootycall all over the lid, and snakebite thought the crease and outer corner, and I used black out along the lash line to add some definition.

mascara: Maybelline pumped up collosal volume express ($7) , Clinique bottom lash mascara ($12)
Powder : RImmel stay matte ($5) I used this through my t-zone to get rid of some shine
bronzer & highlighter: Sleek contour kit ($10) I used the bronzer on the high pointed of my face to add a sun kissed look and added the highlighter to the tops of my cheek bones
blush: Marc Jacobs blush in Promiscuous ($36) I used this on the apples of my cheeks

That’s everything I wore and used on my date night with Carmen! Let me know in the comments what you got up to this weekend or some of your favourite products for a date! Don’t forget to hit all the good buttons and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Until next time,
xoxo
