its a party

21!!! is a age that comes with a lot of meaning, once you turn 18 becoming 21 is the birthday you look forward to for the next three years. This is a big deal to pretty much everybody, you have a feeling of independence, being totally legal and just gives you a reason to wild out a little bit. So of course since brook was FINALLY turning 21 (on the 16th) after all of her friends we had to do it big and be crazy the whole weekend. So we captured it all for you guys and hope you enjoy the pics and our carefully picked out ensembles! and happy belated bday to all of you Gemini's!!!

buy of the week

I just got this bag a little over a week ago and thought i would share with you guys. We are going to start doing a post once a week about what we consider to be a incredible buy. Whether its due to its price, quality or something we just adore and think you should run out and get one for your self lol....

But anyways I bought this bag at TJ MAXX. Its perfect for students or a career women. It has many compartments and is pretty big and it comes with a makeup bag, wallet and a laptop case and ALL of this was ONLY 19.99!!!! i know crazy right but anyways it comes in the three other colors and seems pretty durable. I love it!

One usual day after class/work we met up at our apartment to head out for dinner and to look for brooks razzle me dazzle birthday dress which we are yet to find lol we decided to stop in the parking lot to snap a few shots and play around with brooks camera she has to use for one of her journalism classes. We came out with a few great pics and made us realize we need a camera upgrade 

but any who brooks birthday weekend is next week so we will definitely be capturing it all and what we wear...hope you have a great weekend loves!

BACK Appeal

 "back tie"

"Snap back"


Who doesn't love a little back action? I am in love with this trend, in every way shape and form. And you can get them for a GREAT price ( all of these dresses under $30). I was first introduced to a little "back action" when through Urban Outfitters; they always have the most adorable dresses that gives a little peak and the last time I was there i saw plenty of similar dresses with these same three details. A open back that ties, some that have an opening with a snap to bring the dress together, as well as sheer or croched areas in the back that looks amazing on the bare skin. Unfortunately it is hard for me to shop at Urban Outfitters and other stores as such because the items are on the more expensive side, usually starting around $50-$60 and with my paycheck I would only be able to get one or two things. Sometimes its good to splurge on myself, but I'd rather get more bag for my buck. There are plenty of places you can get clothes that resemble the ones at these stores, not just the dresses. Therefore, I was jumping for joy when I found all of these dresses for under $30. 1) I love this one..the "tribal" inspired print & the bow in the back is stunning! I got this one at TJ Maxx for $14.99. 2) When I was at work i fell in LOOOOVE the back was out and the front is adorable. The two different textures, silky at the bottom and denim material at the top gives it a chic edge. 3) When I wear this one I look like I stepped off the set of Little House on the Prairie lol, but I love it! It's flowy and the white on my bare back.. I can't get enough of. The last 2 cost $29.99 at Charlotte Russe. Anyways with all my rambling I just wanted to share with you guys these awesome finds and encourage you to look hard for things that are affordable for your shopping budget :)
