Weekend Roundup: YSL Rack Find, My Vintage Coat, Fresh Balayage and More...

Happy Monday! It's been a busy long weekend filled with some of my favorite things - family and shopping :)

On Black Friday I hit the Rack and met up with my new shopping buddy A - who found me these $895 marked down refurb YSL Tributes for just $131.23 after the 30% discount. Insane. He was also kind enough to get on the ground to take this pic - so a double thank you to A!

Then I found these super cute refurb Topshop lace-up flats for just $11.88. When I checked out, the sales person and I just started laughing hysterically because they were so darn cheap. They aren't the most comfortable but I figured they were Instagram worthy - and my hunch proved correct! Nordstrom Rack regrammed my photo! Believe it or not it was the first time they regrammed me. They've acknowledged me on Twitter but I thought they were ignoring me on Insta because that's where I share my penny finds LOL. I guess I was just paranoid.

Please pardon my unshaven legs LOL.

Yesterday, I headed into the City for fresh balayage color at Loreal Pro. As a hair model you never know what to expect, but Loreal has been pretty consistent. I think I've been with them for almost 10 years. I had to wear all black so I decided to have some fun with my coat. Pulled out this vintage number that I scored on eBay almost 20 years ago - and years later I still get tons of compliments. I wish I dug out the belt because it gets a little bulky looking without it. The studded leather gloves were from the Century sale last year - I scored one pair at 75% and grabbed another at 90% off. They seriously make every outfit.

The color is a little more beige-y than I'd like, but it is a beautiful application and pretty natural looking. I'm sure after a couple weeks it will fade a little (and my natural golden tones will come through) and then it will be fine. I've learned to try to live in my hair for a little bit before going crazy. When I was younger I would burst out in tears if my hair wasn't to my liking. Last time that happened I was young (20ish) and it turned out to be my best-hair-cut-ever but I was too embarrassed to go back. As a model you learn to suck it up a bit. Nothing beats free hair - saves me thousands of dollars a year. For these pics a fellow model was kind enough to snap them for me. These days I take my DSLR camera with me and hand it off to whoever is willing.

On Thanksgiving I headed to my parents house for our last Thanksgiving together. It sounds ominous but they're retiring and leaving the country soon so all my siblings who were around joined in. I have to say I was so impressed with my little brother who killed it in the kitchen. His apple pie was TDF. He's 26, cute, single, and apparently he can cook. Just saying...

I need a more modest look when I see my mom so I covered up in my favorite Rebecca Taylor dress that I lived in all summer. This look from head to toe:

  • Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Century 21 90% off, $8, retail $145
  • Earrings: Lionette, sample sale, $20 (they told me they retailed for about $180)
  • Jacket: Gap, $8 (stacked a couple codes for this deal!), retail $69.95
  • Dress: Rebecca Taylor, sample sale $50, retail $550
  • Ring: Lionette "Nadine", sample sale, $20, retail $180
  • Bag: Rebecca Minkoff jumbo Love, sample sale $50, retail $355
  • Boots: Rebecca Minkoff fringed Ilan, sample sale $25, retail $295
Total retail = $1,774.95 and I got it for $183. Not bad!

I'm linking some of these pieces (or similar) so you can check them out online :)

It's not too late to enter my Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody giveaway! Head to my Instagram for more details :)

And last but not least - last call for my blog sale! Still some great stuff left :)

Hope your weekend was as successful as mine. Cheers to another great week ahead!



  1. Wowwwwww to those YSL shoes!!! They look amazing on!

    1. Thanks - I really didn't expect to like them so much. And they're pretty comfortable (for heels) too!

  2. I think your hair turned out great! I'm too nervous/cheap to do anything with my hair besides a cut every few months...I've never had a good dye job!

    Love those YSLs!


    1. Thanks! If your hair is working for you there is no reason to do anything differently. I only go crazy with my hair every 10 years LOL but I do try to get highlights 3-4x a year.

  3. So pretty! I need a major do-over on my hair. Why isn't there anything like this in DC??

    1. There should be. I just went to Salon Apprentice and they had zero listings for DC. Check out your local Craigslist and search hair model and see what comes up :)

  4. Having long hair is a powerful urge for each lady. In any case, it's impractical because of sullied water, brutal compound shampoos, normal unfortunate eating regimen, contamination and different reasons which consequences for hair development.this content
