L’s Lace and Lemon Lime Look of the Day!

December 14, 2012

imageimageimageimageimageimageHello Lovely Readers~

Today I’m wearing a gorgeous black lace top from the fabulous Sugarlips Apparel, as seen on W last week. We love how the lace provides a touch of class without feeling too stuffy. After W paired it with her teal pencil skirt from Loft, I wanted to try a more modern look. I found these lime jeans on clearance at Limited about two weeks ago, and with my friends and family coupon they came to $5! I’m really loving the lace and neon trend at the moment… what do you readers think?

As we mentioned in our last post, if you are new to this brand, you must check them out! They have such fun and affordable pieces to spruce up any girl’s wardrobe.  Sugarlips also provides free shipping (gotta love that!) and a 365 day return policy. It doesn’t get much better than great mix and match items featured at an affordable price, backed by amazing customer service! 

Don’t forget to check out the Sugarlips  “Some Sort of Magic” top. W loves the top so much that she even wore it for our 30th birthday party last weekend!  Reaching for a particular clothing items several times in a span of a week or two is a great sign you made an excellent purchase for your wardrobe! 

Happy Friday! Have a wonderful day!

We are excited to bring you a new edition of “Wear It Two Ways” for the week! Today I’m wearing a gorgeous black lace top from the fabulous Sugarlips Apparel.  As soon as this arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to style it! The lace provides a touch of class without feeling too stuffy.  I knew that my new teal pencil skirt from Loft would be the perfect thing to pair with it. The patent bow belt and large stone necklace provided an extra girly feel to the outfit.  Add a black suit jacket, and I’m ready to go for a day of meetings at work.  Pull out a black clutch with some extra wrist bling, and I’m all set for a holiday event.  As you know, L and I love anytime we can make our closet items mix and match for endless outfits - and this top definitely fits the bill!

If you are new to this brand, you must check them out! They have such fun and affordable pieces to spruce up any girl’s wardrobe.  Sugarlips also provides free shipping (gotta love that!) and a 365 day return policy.
