Fall Preperation

Even though it is just about to be fall, I just now have started preparing for it due to the weather here in Florida. The fall months are usually filled with intermittent rain showers and lots of sunshine keeping the temperature a bit more on the warm side. Light sweaters, comfortable open shoes, makeup brushes, dresses, eyeshadow palette, leggings, breezy tops and the perfect leather jacket is what I've got so far.

While cleaning up my computer today (should of actually been done a while ago) I found these photos which I assumed I some how lost earlier in the summer while importing pictures from Italy. These are a few shots from flying out of Paris (saw an amazing surprise ariel view of the Effel Tower) to my stay in Sorrento.

// eShakti skirt, Armani Exchange shirt, Jeffery Campbell Litas shoes, Prada sunglasses, Lucky Jeans ring, Tiffany & Co. ring, vintage ring, David Yurman bracelet and Bakers necklace // 

eShakti is an online shopping experience like no other, so naturally when I was contacted by them to do a product review I obliged with enthusiasm. Being my first official product review, I was eager to receive my choice from the website. I decided on this graphic print silk dupion skirt mainly due to its funky tribal graphics, but also because I knew I'd be able to customize it to my liking. eShakti gives its shoppers the option to customize each piece (hem length, neckline and sleeves) so that it fits perfectly to the consumers liking.  Giving their customers this option shows this company pays extra attention to detail while producing quality and stylish garments.  For my personal customization I decided to shorten the hem length so that this above-the-knee skirt, would be transformed into a mini skirt. Paring my new mini skirt with a flowy earth tone shirt, I have come up with the perfect transition outfit for fall in Tampa.  Working with eShakti has been a great experience and I invite all my readers to check them out and get $20 off your purchase when you checkout using this code: SAMG8011 Personally I have my eye on this this & this :)

Lucky Unknown

I recently received this ring from a dear friend who found it in his house while moving. Don't you love random unknown-origin gifts? While analyzing this ginormous ring I found that it was made by Lucky Brand; but thats about all I could find. Either way it's an awesome ring that I plan on adding to my daily attire. 

 Check out the new issue of Creative Loafing tomorrow all you Tampa dwellers!

^Christian Louboutin shoes, Armani Exchange pants, Abercrombie & Fitch shirt from high school, David Yurman bracelet  & necklace, Origami bracelet^ 

Since I've had my eyes on these Armani Exchange jeans for a while, I was naturally thrilled to bring them home. I think its cool how each garment has been hand dyed giving each pair of jeans a unique look. Within the past few days I've come up with some what of a list in my head of essential fall items. These ankle zip- ups are one of the first to make it to my list. Plus I've wanted a pair of jeans with similar features ever since I saw them on Mary-Kate Olsen.  The stitching on these jeans are also quite interesting since they create a equestrian-pant look.
