Cage Me Up

Bell sleeves are high in demand this season. To be honest, I overflowed with excitement at the prospect of adding a few belled lovelies into my collection. Every store I perused, there they were, enticing me, begging to come home with me-LOL! Seriously, the variety of styles currently available is unmatched! From high fashion to fast fashion, from wool to cotton, in tiers, and or embellished – the list really goes on and on.
For my first acquisition of the hot commodity, I finally settled on this  plus size caged body con dress. The exaggerated trumpet sleeves won me over! For a night out, I styled it with a faux fur vest- yet another winner from ELVI :) I especially love the knit detail on the back of the woollen vest, isn't it stylish?! The neutral color palette matched up so very well together, and the added fuzzy layer was extremely practical for chilly night air.

Purple lipstick: Here| Vest: c/o ELVI| Diamond Heart Shaped Earrings: c/o Kevin Jewelers (similar here)| Dress: Here| Shoes: Nine West, older

Since my sleeves were clearly doing all of the work, I opted for a minimal approach with accessories and finished off the look with a pair of diamond heart earrings from Kevin Jewelers. They feature ‘dancing’diamonds :) There are pins in place to support a hanging diamond in the middle of the hearts! The hanging diamond stays in motion and appears to twinkle from every direction, so glamorous <3
I mentioned previously that I am working with Kevin Jewelers as an Influencer. An absolute perk of this partnership is visiting a store each month and getting the inside scoop on upcoming deals and sales! You’ll be happy to know that there are a number of good things on tap this month! For instance, right now there is a destination deal called “Diamonds, Deals, and Destinations”To put it simply:
  • With a purchase of $299, you get a FREE trip to Vegas!
  • With a purchase of $2,499, you get a FREE trip to Hawaii!
  • Use promo code "KJLANovember" during November for 10% all in-store purchases
I don’t know about you, but freebies like that are right up my alley! Head on over to Kevin Jewelers, pick out your bling + a getaway!

Until next time,
XO
