              Lately my style has had quite an edge to it. I've been 
  sporting simple, usually all-black looks, spiked bracelets,  
  and anything with studs.

     I purchased this gorgeous leopard skirt at Target several 
  weeks ago and I just love how versatile it is! I've paired it 
  with everything from a white leather jacket and black button-
  down top to a deep cherry colored tank top, and most recently, 
  my faux leather blouse from The Limited! 

            P.S Stay tuned for the outfit posts starring the items I 
  purchased from Ann Taylor, BeBe, and TopShop while in Chicago!

    Outfit Details :: DressForever21 | Necklace; Jazz Fest | Rings; Silpada | Wooden Bracelet; World Market | Platforms; BCBG | Bag; Lucky Brand | 

         I found this gorgeous dress at Forever21 a few weeks back and 
 planned to wear it during Jazz Fest to see Maroon 5. Due to the 
 nasty weather conditions, that didn't quite work out. So I 
 decided to purchase something at Jazz Fest to pair with it.

   LBDs (little black dress) are my favorite things to wear anytime of year! I let the red necklace be the star of this post and kept all of my accessories simple and my heels neutral. Lastly, to add a little boho-flair, I added my fringe Lucky Brand bag!
