Out by the Barn

What winter?  I'm back to donning the same layers I wore in October while counting down the days until I don't need them anymore (fingers crossed)!  I paired a simple long-sleeved favorite tee from J.Crew with a chunky sweater (it's hidden, unfortunately), and my favorite bomber jacket.  As you can see in a picture below, the lining of this jacket is leopard print, so fun!  I wore this SEAH wrap bracelet and striking SEAH stud earrings for some gold and blue accent color.  These wrap bracelets (see Ally's post here) are so cool and crafted so beautifully; a bonus aspect is the magnetic clasp hidden as a gold emblem.  I am wearing the SEAH 2-Wrap Element Bracelet w/ Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio signs as well as the Virgo earrings.  I absolutely love big stud earrings but often find them too heavy to wear for long periods of time and this pair was perfect, so light-weight and so pretty.  Check out more products by SEAH here in last Friday's Fab Finds!

Florals on a Farm


[ tee - StyleMint, leather jacket - Forever 21, jeans - Joe's Jeans, wedges - Target, necklaces - J.Crew, JewelMint, Dana Rebecca Designs, bracelets - J.Crew, leather wrap bracelet - (on loan from) Seah, sunglasses - Ray Ban ]

Due to the mild weather so far this winter, I just can't seem to get away from the spring clothes that are coming out! I do have to admit that StyleMint has really blown me away with the quality and variety of their t-shirts every month and for only $29.99 a piece! They are fun to style and never fail at being fashionable. I also have to send out my love to Seah for sending us some leather wrap bracelets to sample. The quality and details of these are amazing and the fact that there is so much care and meaning in each one just makes it that much more special. This one is the Fall/Winter bracelet with Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, & Pisces Zodiac signs. (See our Fab Finds on these bracelets here!)

Seah Watches and Jewelry

We just discovered this brand of watches and jewelry and love how each piece is customized for your zodiac sign! There are so many different options of metals and bands and they come in beautiful colors (as you can see). The leather wrap bracelets would look so great layered with some colorful and sparkly "wrist bliss" (see below).


As we tweeted yesterday, the February catalogue is out and the drooling begins! A catalogue filled with  "Cashmere Cravings," "Wrist Bliss," brights, and patterns... the Glitterati just can't wait to indulge in the season's upcoming hottest trends.



We have just added a new button that looks like this to the left side of our page. It's a perfect way for you to constantly check out what's on our shopping list of must-haves! Just click here and see what your Glitterati are "Currently Obsessed" with!

Old Stone Church


[ dress - Joie via Hautelook, sweater - J.Crew, tights - Anna Sui, booties - Target, necklaces - J.Crew & Dana Rebecca Designs, bracelets - DIY & Leslie Danzis, earrings - Kendra Scott, sunglasses - Ray Ban ]

It was freezing cold and the day after a snow storm, but I felt like wearing some bright colors and fun patterns to brighten up this winter day. This old church, near my house, is a well known wedding photography spot and I've always wanted to know what it looked like inside... except the day I picked to explore, my hands almost froze off (hence the fists in almost every photo), my sister had to carry me through the snow, and I almost got attacked by a pigeon. ANYWAYS... I bought this dress for future trips to warm locations and the not-so-close summery months but I just don't have patience for those kinds of things. The Glitterati have been preaching their love for neons and brights however, so I "winterized" this dress with a cozy cardigan and some booties.

I got the idea for these DIY braided bracelets from the blog, Honestly WTF. They have some great DIY bracelet and other jewelry ideas!







This week only: BaubleBar is hosting their "One Year Shop" with great deals on some of their most popular pieces! Visit our facebook page to see some of the Glitterati's favorites and be sure to "like" us.

Faith, Trust, and Pixie Pants


[ Painter Zip Tee, Pixie Pant - J. Crew, Bomber Jacket - 344, 
Patent Leather bag - Coach, boots - BCBG ]

Meet Kayla: our #1 publicist and dear friend!  This girl literally posts links to our page on Facebook and twitter everyday and is constantly giving us great input and ideas for new blog posts! When she came over the other day wearing this striped tee from J.Crew (the Glitterati love stripes) and the J.Crew pixie pants we knew we had to snap some photos!  These are two key pieces to any wardrobe, she can dress it up with heels and a blazer or dress it down with flats and a scarf.  In this instance she went for a more casual chic look and topped it off with a seriously fabulous patent leather bag from Coach and a leather bomber from 344.

Into the Wild

Sometimes I can't help but start shopping for the spring season too early (loving these new colorful Ray Bans I got on super sale!) Vacations come up and sometimes warm weather comes early so I always keep my fingers crossed... but this was a fun day to play in the snow and the sun light through the bare trees was just too cool to pass up. I've been seeing a lot of shorts with tights action going on these days and I'm not hating it. But I kept with the clunky winter boots (which I LOVE being able to wear) and the fur vest so it didn't look like I was overly confused about which season it is. Ya gotta have some fun!

Archie Grand for J.Crew Notebook

So this past week, the Glitterati hit their first major milestone... 100th post! We have met and come across so many amazing and inspiring bloggers along the way and have really enjoyed creating these posts for you. We have had some great and productive business meetings that usually result in a dance party, eating some snacks, or browsing through the newest J.Crew catalogues so we rely on these fun Archie Grand notebooks from J.Crew to hold our notes and brainstorms on how to continuously make ourselves better bloggers! Stay tuned for the next 100 :)



CAPITOL COLOURS BY CHINA GLAZE

The Glitterati are currently both reading The Hunger Games series and in honor of the movie coming out in March, China Glaze has launched a Hunger Games inspired nail polish line.  The polishes are said to hit stores in early March but we are hoping to snag some before then! 




In the spirit of counting down the days until spring, here is something bright and cheerful to warm up your days. We are loving neons and bright, bold colors these days... we just can't even wait until winter is over! We posted about this satchel last week on Facebook and it seemed to be very popular so we wanted to share with everyone! (Make sure you like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more fun finds during the week.) This satchel, based from a company in London, has a flourescent line that is the perfect remedy for seasonal depression.

Tiered


Hello everyone! I'm back from (somewhat) sunny Florida after a fabulous week of R&R.  I know that many of you are reading this from somewhere in the North but for those of you further South, here are a few warmer weather outfits!  These photos were taken in Florida where my sister and I both went for a "tiered" look one night.  Michelle is wearing an actual tiered dress from J. Crew and paired it with a longer boyfriend blazer.  I am wearing a black maxi dress paired with a crop top. I don't wear either of these pieces often and found a way to combine them into one great look.  Opposites really do attract!

In case you remember from this Fab Finds post, we take our J.Crew archives very seriously to return to for some outfit inspiration. I was obsessed with both of these outfits but I had this incessant need to have that cheetah blouse and pencil skirt. I loved the unexpected bright colors with the print. Here is my winterized version with a few pieces that I already had and made it my own.
