You gotta keep em perforated.

I hope you read the title with the song "You gotta keep Em Separated" by Offspring in mind. Sorry if the song is stuck in your head now. Currently I'm finishing up my last few days as a college student and things have been pretty busy. I've been doing a lot of online browsing which is code for putting off my last two college assignments that I will ever have to do. So of course I decided to take some time to share my love of all things perforated for this spring with you all.   

 Normally I am not a heels girl but I would like to sit in these all day.
When I say sit I mean in a chair because I never last in heels.
I would make an exception for these pumps because they are completely adorable.

 
Don't hate me for posting this awesome designer piece.
I feel in love with the back panel of this jacket too bad it's $1590.
I want to slip it on with a tank, ripped up jeans, and white keds.

 This little wallet is a perfect way to try the trend at an extremely affordable price.
Thanks Target for literally looking out for my wallet.

I feel like this skirt would perfect for Mother's Day brunch.
 I can't believe this bag is from New York and Company.
I love the cut out pattern on it and want it in this crisp white color.
To be honest, I'm going to stalk this bag until it's on sale.


With all my heart,
Vanessa

My favorite red carpet looks: 2014 Oscars

I can't let the award season pass by without mentioning the Oscars. I love that the Oscars ceremony is where you get to see celebrities at their most glamorous. Here are some of my favorite fashions from the award ceremony's red carpet.

Lupita Nyong'o looked beautiful and refreshing in a pale blue Prada.

My favorite of the night was definitely Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace. She looked flawless from head to toe and I was really surprised by her choice for the night.

In close second to Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron looked the perfect amount of sultry in a dress by Dior.

One of my favorite couples, Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell, cleaned up very well. Dax wore a John Varvatos suit and Kristen a Roberto Cavalli gown.

Cate Blanchett looked lovely in an embellished nude dress by Giorgio Armani.

 Also sticking with nude, Angelina Jolie was radiant in Elie Saab.
What dress was your favorite from the event?

Cleveland Chic: Rebecca Ray Designs.

Cleveland is not the first place someone would think has a fashion community, but that is starting to change. Over next few months I want to introduce you to some of my favorite local companies that deserve some recognition. It is amazing what you can find where you live when you do a little digging.
The first company you can feast your eyes on is Rebecca Ray Designs. Rebecca Ray Designs is an equestrian inspired handbag, accessory, and home goods company headquartered in Chargin Falls, Ohio. The company prides itself in making everything here in the United States. Not only are the products made in the United States, but they are handcrafted with care by the local Amish community. You can find the full Rebecca Ray product line on their website but if you are lucky it might be sold in a store near you.

Now I know what you all really want to see... the goods. Here are few pieces that make me feel like saddling up.  
While I know we are all looking forward to spring the reality is a lot of us are living in black. This cognac bit cuff would look great paired with an all black ensemble and stacked with a few delicate gold bracelets.  
This supple chocolate brown Daphne Bucket Tote is big enough to hold everything you need while keeping you effortlessly stylish. The best part is the shape of the bag is so classic that you won't regret buying it in six months.
The Maryann Duffel will stand out in a sea of boring carry-on bags. The bag's bold color and graphic adds interest to what could have been a boring duffel.
I don't know what I love more about the Julie Tote the large anchor print or the hint of lime on the handles. It's the perfect bag to bring to Lake Erie on a sunny day to enjoy the view of the Lighthouse.

With all my heart,
Vanessa
