Crosses & Lace

Today, I'm bringing you another look from Obsession Boutique! You can see my other outfits from their store here, here, here, & here!

 When they sent me this tank top, it really brought me back to my high school days when I was obsessed with skulls and crosses. While I'm so glad to be out of high school [and done with school, period], it was nice to reminisce!

I don't know about you, but one of my greatest fears is showing up somewhere wearing the exact same outfit as someone else. When eShakti offered to send me a custom made piece, I was over the moon. How could you not love something that was made just for you?
eShakti is your go-to place to get exactly what you want for your next event. For skirts, you have all sorts of options: mini, above knee, knee length, mid calf length [you can also choose pockets or no pockets!]. Depending on what top you choose, you also have many options here: cap sleeve, elbow length, inset cap, short length, three quarter length, tie-ups at shoulders, halter, wide straps, etc. Endless options! I'm into it.
 As for my outfit? I chose the halter bralette and skirt combo. I chose "wide straps" for the top and ordered the skirt in knee length with pockets. I don't know what it is, but it makes me so happy when a skirt or dress has pockets. I don't think I ever actually use them, but knowing that I have the option really tickles my fancy!
If you're not sure what your exact measurements are, or how to go about figuring that out [because I had no idea], no worries, eShakti provides step by step instructions. I suggest having a friend measure you in order to get your correct measurements! Big thanks to my man friend for measuring me :D

Top: c/o eShakti | Skirt: c/o eShakti | Earrings: LC Lauren Conrad | Necklace: Windsor [similar here & here --only $6!] | Bracelet: Capwell + Co. | Ring: Forever 21 | Bag: Victoria's Secret | Heels: ShoeMint [similar here, in black here]

I cannot speak highly enough of eShakti as this outfit showed up in less than a week, fits perfectly, and the quality is great.

eShakti is so very generously offering my readers 10% off their entire purchase now through August 2nd with code: Destyles. This code is not applicable with sale items.

Happy shopping!

Tuxedo & Florals

Canadian Tuxedos are best worn with florals. Or atleast on this day it was. I have been eying the Steve Madden floral heels for a while now but wasn't able to pull the trigger because I wasn't sure how much use I'd get out of them. Theeeen, dun dun dunnnn, I stumbled across these little beauts. At $32, I couldn't say no. Plus, I have so many pairs of ankle strap heels that look nearly identical, so I love that the straps on these will kind of switch it up ;)
Yes, these are the same shorts I wore in my last post. Repeat offender? Guilty.

1st Blog Birthday!

When I first started my blog, I wanted to do something grand for its "first birthday" like champs, balloons, a fancy dress, etc. However, it snuck up on me when I was hanging out yesterday and realized my one year blog birthday is today! So much for planning ahead, huh? Time flies. I celebrated with carry out instead.
After realizing my grand plan wasn't going to happen today, I remembered these pink bow shoe clips that I've been hanging on to. I spotted them while checking out at H&M just before I started my blog and just after my blog logo was created. While I knew I would probably never wear them [except for celebrations like this!], they couldn't match my logo more perfectly >> #meanttobe. I did a few giddy jumps of excitement because it felt like my little secret. At the time, no one knew what my blog name was going to be, or had seen my logo, besides myself and two others. We will call these my blog heels.

Thank you for following along with Because I'm Obsessed this past year! I have so much fun sharing my personal style, tips, and other nonsense with all of you & enjoy seeing and hearing yours in return. I love knowing there are so many others out there who have a love & obsession for fashion as much as I do! xx

Sheer Panel Midi

Sooo this skirt... I mean, it's just too adorable. I can't get over it. So obsessed. I've been dying to try out the midi skirt trend but haven't been fond of anything I have found thus far. No skirt seemed to be "my style" plus, the price tags were a little so-so, if ya know what I mean. Thankfully, Obsession Boutique saved the day with their selection of cute and affordable clothing. This sexy sheer panel skirt is priced at $43.95 but you, my fabulous readers, can use code IMOBSESSED10 to get 10% off your entire order! Yahooo!
 Remember my DIY clutch post? Here's the little beaut making her first appearance on the blog! She was the perfect choice to add a little pop to my all black ensemble. I also added an ear cuff [just one, two was two too many] to add a another pop but those pictures turned out awkward so you can go ahead and see that cuff here and purchase one for yourself to appreciate its fabulousness ;)

 Note to self: do not apply lotion head to toe before heading out in 83 degree weather with outrageous humidity. It will melt and you will look like a wax figure.
Top: Bozzolo via TJMaxx | Skirt: c/o Obsession Boutique | Ear Cuff: ASOS [same one here] |Bracelets: Sira & Mara, Target | Clutch: DIY [see the tutorial here] | Heels: Zara

Head to Obsession Boutique and get the skirt while it's still in stock! Use code IMOBSESSED10 to get 10% off your entire order. You will not regret it! As for sizing, I am typically a size six. Here, I'm wearing a medium and the skirt fits perfectly!
