Current Indulgence: Glint & Gleam

I am obsessed. I have been stalking this website for quite some time and finally took the plunge and made a few purchases! Through the Shop Lately website, they have certain boutiques that cater to different tastes and types of accessories you’re interested in. The one I found that I am completely head over heels for is Glint & Gleam, an affordable very trendy boutique that has tons of styles of jewelry that cater to many likings.

I was first intrigued by their pieces from seeing people like Amy from Vagabond Youth and Sarah from Sarah Hawkinson show their pick ups from the site as well as different stylings with them.

I placed two orders on separate occassions and got them two days after I placed the order–which is amazing! Don’t you just love when your packages ship quickly?

Anyhow, here is a video of the things I picked up:

And here are some detailed shots of the pieces as well:

I am such a sucker for cute packaging as well as good quality and Glint & Gleam does just that: delivers great quality items in cute packaging–AND did I mention they’re affordable?! Two thumbs up!

What do you guys think? Is this something you guys are interested in? Did you see anything you liked from my haul or their site? Please share!

Shoe Indulgence: Shoemint Molly

Have you guys heard of Shoemint yet? From the umbrella company Beachmint, Shoemint is shoes from theĀ collaborationĀ of Rachel Bilson and Nichole Chavez! Now I’ve been stalking their site since they released, but I finally took the plunge and purchased a pair! I was lusting of Edith, but unfortunately missed out on that pair. So I saw the Molly and knew I could not hesitate again! I received the shoes a few days after ordering. Wait I forgot to mention one of the best parts! I used a promo code so it was discounted by 20%! It literally made the fight about ordering it way easier! I made a little collage for you guys. I did not notice till now that the bottom right is a bit blurry (sorry folks)! So far I have not gotten to wear them out, just putting them on in my room for now. But do as the website says and order half a size up! It does run a half size small so I am glad I listen to directions well. I can tell you I saw some construction errors, it shows the glue on the heel. Which is no biggie cause other than looking for it, you can not see them. They seemed very comfy as well! Which is great because it has a 5 1/4 heel! I am sure they are they highest heels I own. Besides being in love with the style and color, I even adored the cute black box they came in. So far Shoemint has a B+ in my book! I will let you guys know how the overall wear goes with the shoe later on. How do you guys feel about the Shoemint brand?

Current Indulgence: Brandy Melville <3

This is pretty self explanatory. WE LOVE BRANDY MELVILLE! Long story short, we accidentally stumbled across the Brandy Melville store located here in San Diego with the intention of visiting the stores around it. With no distinct sign in front of the store, we had time to kill so we just walked in and checked it out. Needless to say, it was love at first sight! The store was filled with so many cute clothing items, not to mention their awesome accessory selection. Karla and I are happy to add this to one of our must go to places. If you have a Brandy Melville be sure to check them out, and if not visit them online!

Most of their pieces are a “one size fits most” type of deal, which we can appreciate because the clothing items we chose are universally flattering to our body types. The prices vary–for example the same prints on different material can vary in price one may be cheaper than the other. But that also shows they have various options. They are affordable, but some items like their knits and pants are a tad pricier than we’d like. Overall, we’ve always had a pleasant experience and great time shopping here. Stay tuned and see what we’ve hauled in from them recently–we have some really cool finds I think you’d all enjoy!

XOXO Alyssa
