Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! If you follow me on my social media platforms, then you would know that I collaborated with Lisa, owner of Arli Accessories, to host a giveaway for a free pair of earrings on last month. As a black #GirlBoss, I knew I wanted to support this business in whatever way I could. She makes all of her products by hand and can be customized based on the consumer’s preference. Her jewelry is gorgeous so I knew when she sent me these tassel button earrings, I couldn’t wait to style them! She offers these in a number of different color combinations and the best part? They are super affordable sitting at the pretty price of $10! You know your girl loves a good deal!
I admire that she creates all of her products by hand. (Your girl can only wish to be that crafty lolz) As a blogger, I definitely appreciate small businesses just as much as I appreciate retail stores. She is also a member of my sorority and we definitely believe in supporting our own!
I used the earrings as the foundation for my outfit and created my look around that. I started with this mini dress that I’ve had for ages. I then used my cropped jacket but wanted to style it differently. I felt like if I would’ve worn the jacket the normal way it would swallow my frame – especially my upper body, so I opted to wear it off the shoulders. To keep the jacket in place and create a silhouette, I buttoned the last button on the jacket. I was so surprised with how it came out! I am telling y’all creativity and thinking outside the box goes a long way when creating looks! Then I added these white caged heels to compliment the white tassels. To keep the look fun and give it a little personality, I opted for white sunnies and this ladybug clutch from last year. You can see another way I styled this clutch here. What do you sweetie pies think of this look? Yay or Nay? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J
