True & Company

I've had a chance to review a lot of bra companies and True & Company is the first to really get me excited!  It's like having a personal bra service online.  It's fun because you answer questions in a quiz about your breasts and the type of bras you like.  Then, you get to choose 3 bras to have sent to you to try and then a stylist will send you with a surprise of 2 other bras to try according to your answers as well as your selection.  You then decide if you like any of them.  If not, send back free of charge.  And, if you do, just hit buy and you're done.  You have gorgeous lingerie at a great price and you didn't have to leave your room to try it out.

I was skeptical about having someone choose 2 pieces, but ended up LOVING the fit and style for both of the stylists choices!  Shows you just have to believe and see what happens.  I've always meant to get myself a bra every month.  But, bras ended up being too expensive or too cheap.  I'm over Victoria's Secret styles, but I can't afford a fabulous french designer styles.  This is such a great option for a mommy on the go, or business woman who just doesn't have the time to stop at a store and try on.  This way styles are sent to your house and you try out and keep what works and send back what doesn't.  GENIUS!

Here is what I received when trying out:


Shopping at Target today

If you're not following me on instagram and if you don't follow what I'm sharing through facebook and twitter I wanted to make sure you saw some of the cute things I found at the store today and what I fell in LOVE with through @targetdoesitagain on instagram.  (follow them now if you aren't already and get ready to fall in LOVE with everything from Target'.)

Women's Mossimo Verlie Tubular Upper Wedge Sandal , $30 
This reminds me of a Calypso tote I've been gushing over.  Merona Crochet Straw Tote - Navy


Mossimo® Large Straw Tote - Multicolor

Ok, here will be a few cute straw hats...I'm addicted to hats right now:)

Decorative Straw Gardening Hat
Xhilaration Straw Baseball Hat

Merona Floppy With Striped Band
LOVE this heel!  Xhilaration Tammy Plank Wedge Sandal

Rocking my Royal Jelly Harlem at the AZ blogger conference #abc13, plus a special discount!

I am in love with the Maxi Angeline dress!  The silhouette is AMAZING!  Taken it at the top and looser at the bottom with pockets!  It looks fab with high heels like I have on here or with flats.  Believe it or not, the print on here is airplanes.  Which I can't wait to rock on a vacay and it will be perfect at a gathering for my hubbies job since he is in the Air Force.  It's just genius!  So flattering for every body shape!  I'm excited to share that the designer, Maya Gorgoni is also offering a discount to Fashionalities readers for 30% off when you mention 'BUMBLE BEE' in the comments section for this particular dress!!!  P.S. she has the cutest designs!  So many amazing silhouette and fun prints!  Get ready to fall in LOVE!

LOVE! #candidlynicole on AOL!

I LOVE her style and now it's fun to see her old self again...keeping it SUPER REAL!
The outtakes are hilarious!

DIY: Something cool to make with a tassel keychain

Mossimo Supply Co. Tassel Belt

I'm super addicted to all things tassels and was gushing over a ladies pair of high top sneakers (that sadly can't find online yet...) and told her how much I LOVED them and how I adore tassels.  She responded by telling me about a belt she thought she was wearing...then, gave me an AMAZING DIY.  Use a tassel keychain to create the belt.  Funny enough, after I left there and headed to Target' I found a tassel belt as even more inspiration on sale!  ONLY $7 but I didn't love how the faux leather looked for the tassel detail.  I like worn in tassels:)

So, here are a few tassels I think would be fun to use.

Anuschka Leather Tassel Keychain

Alexander Mcqueen Dusty Rose And Gold Tassel Key Ring

Cheap Monday Magnified Key Ring
Vera Bradley Tassel Keychain in Tutti Frutti

A fun way to rock a scarf

I received a scarf to play with from FRAAS and wanted to do something different with it. I think summer scarves that are long and light are my new favorite style because there is so much you can do with them. From wearing as you would usually around the neck...or like I did here as a belt...and then these styles are perfect to wear as a turban or a funky headband. The options are endless. This style scarf is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe without having to spend a lot on getting new clothes.

Ethnic bags all from Billabong!

Billabong Handbags

All of these bags are such a great price and so cute! It looks like you've travelled to a far off location or bought from a boho store like Free People which would cost so much more:)
I love to look to Billabong for looks that go beyond surfer styles.  They have so many ethnic inspired, boho styles.  I LOVE IT!

Fab style as seen at Coachella on Solange Knowles and Nicole Richie

I'm already addicted to boho style and love Solange and Nicole Richie's style that already reflects that.  Here are a few looks that inspire me that can easily be found.

This is Nicole Richie rocking a Norma Kamali underwire tassel bra.  $450  I LOVE how she wears a bathing suit top like this with high waisted, vintage jeans.  BRILLIANT!

She inspires my style soo much!  Here is a great interview from Elle.com highlighting how Solange styles herself for music festivals like Coachella.

I am looking for a bandeau top/bathing suit to rock with a high waisted skirt.  I also like the side tie knot.

Here are some bandeau's I'm considering:

Tommy Bahama - Pearl Solids Twist Bandeau Bikini Top (Black) - Apparel

J.CrewPadded knot bandeau top

Oakley Women's Bananas Bandeau Top

Jessica Simpson Women's Twist Bandeau Bra

LOVING this tank and can't find it anywhere!  I don't care if she is dating this guy...I want to know where the top is from:)
