Flowy and Floral

With the summer heat fluctuating up and down in the city, it’s hard to dress for the day.  It is like an oven on the outside but once you are in the office or school–you are probably freezing your butt off. I usually throw on a sweater, cardigan, or kimono but today called for just some plain ol’ short and a peek-a-boo shoulder.

Fresh and Free

untitled-35

 

I always used to stay away from white because I thought it would make me look like a fat,fluffy marshmallow. Well, damn it, I don’t care anymore. White is one of my favorite shades to wear as well as black and the in between of grey. I don’t match my shoes to my bag, I don’t match anything to any part. I wear what I want and hope that it looks like me.

Dress: Free People (exact one here)// Shoes: TJ Maxx // Purse: SpreePicky (Exact one here)

I let my nerdiness show by getting this uber cute Sailor Moon purse. It comes in two colors black (Luna) and white (Artemis). I of course had to represent my girl Luna and get the Big Metal Moon purse. The interior fits your phone and maybe a tiny wallet and your keys. It’s not that roomy but I find myself using it a lot. The quality is pretty good and I always get compliments on it.

The tunic/dress from Free People is one of my summer favorites that I managed to get for a steal somehow (despite being full price on the website). I had gone to Free People downtown and found this dress in the sale section, marked down with an extra 25% off. The button on the back was missing and ripped off so I went to the register and asked if I could have another discount. They gave me another 10% off and making it final sale. I went home super happy with my $50 find.

 

What has been your favorite steal ever? Nothing will ever beat the time I got some black leather pumps from Banana Republic for $5 but this beat it because I love it and it’s super comfy.

Fall here I come.

Banana Republic’s new campaign Your Life. Styled. features contemporary and super versatile pieces that are perfect for any occasion or situation.  I’ve always been a huge Banana Republic fan (it was my first job ever during my high school years) so when I was approached to try their new pieces, how could I say no?

Over the Edge

Black Booties
My favorite thing about fall coming is to be able to whip out my old,trusty boots and then run to the store to buy some new ones.  A lot of boots are out of a college girls’ price range but many come below the $150 mark and you can bet that you will find some good ones! Keep reading to see some outfit posts and to snag these boots for yourself.

Back to School Fashion Series: Part 4: Jackets

Back to School Jackets

Hello Spices, I apologize in the lack of fashion posts.  All these classes are really kicking my butt already and I’ve had quite a bit of writers’ block. Not good.  I am back and I am really happy to say that this is the conclusion to the Back to School Fashion Series.  You can check back at the other 3 posts at the top of my blog.  The last in my series? Jackets!

Back to School Fashion Series: Part 2: Boots & Booties

Boots and Booties

Hello Spices! I know school is approaching fast and it is officially back to school shopping time so I wanted to show you the different boots and booties there are out there, somewhere.  Fall isn’t fall without all the beautiful boots and ankle booties.  They just scream fall to me and I get really excited seeing less flip flops and more heels.

Back to School Fashion Series: Part One: Sweaters & Cardis

Sweaters

Hello my little spices! There are some exciting times brewing at Sartorial Spice as the weather begins to show signs of cooling down. I’ve finally gone self-hosted! So you can expect a lot more giveaways and maybe a guest blogger or two.

Today, I woke up and was surprised by how chilly it was outside.  Fall is arriving and there is no stopping it! I’ve decided to make a series of Back to School Fashions complete with product sets and some of my favorite items out there.  There will be items of every budget but I will of course try to hit below the $100 or $200 marks.  I do know some ladies love to splurge on shoes though, so those will be the priciest items.

Fall-ing for Stripes

Falling for Stripes

It never ceases to amaze me to see stripes nearly every season.  I am a sucker for stripes.  Every time I walk into a store, I find myself gravitating towards a mound of striped shirts.  I am a moth to a light bulb.  They go with pretty much anything and they really are what I consider, a basic.

Fourth of July Fashion

Fireworks

Hello Spice Girls & Guys!

 

I have a love-hate relationship with July 4th.  I love the energy, the patriotism, and the fireworks.  I hate the traffic, the closed roads, traffic, and the fashion.

I am all for showing off the colors but sometimes I cringe when I see some people leave their house in red pants, an American flag pasted on a t-shirt, and a bunch of American flag accessories.  I don’t mind if you wear a flag..as long as you do it in a subtle way.

Here are a few outfits I put together for a cute fourth of July!

There are so many ways to dress up and have a great July 4th!  What are you going to do on the 4th of July? Do you have your outfit planned?

The best thing about this day? The food and the time spent with family! Try to make it the best you can…and if you don’t have anything planned then it’s a great day to just snuggle in bed and watch some great movie re-runs!
