Check out the thredUP Summer Shopping Challenge I participated in

I'm all about second hand stores and thrift stores!  I've been going through withdrawal from these stores since moving to India and was sooo excited when I got the offer from thredUP to participate in their Summer Shopping Challenge!

The site has a fab selection of items from lower range stores (like Gap or Target) to higher range stores and designer items (like J. Crew to Free People and Marc Jacobs and beyond) and I'd say they are all at a great price!  I had fun shopping the different collections and boutiques that organize all of the fab clothes on the site into categories you might be interested in or items other fashionistas have found that might catch your eye.

To make this even more fun, sign up for thredUP today and get $10 towards your first purchase and when you do that you give me $10 to shop with!  Woohoo!  Plus, shop via the thredUP app and get 20% off your purchase!  I found amazing codes on retail me not for the site too if you can't get enough and are shopping the site a lot:)

Use this link to start shopping: 

What I got:

I love all things elephant so I had to have this!:)  Plus, it's the rust color I'm all over right now!  Check out my blog on rust color right now:)
I just thought this looked different and had to have it...
I'm addicted to mules right now!  Check out my post here to see why:)

This just looked effortless and chic.  I had also had an inspiration magazine clipping with a look from EDUN's Spring 2014 runway where the designer paired a dress like this with a pair of Birks.  Done and done:)  I'm just going to take this gem in to the tailor's and have it taken in to be a little more fitted at the top so I'm not just a big box:)

Introducing my new "IT" shoe, the MULE

  1. Mule, a French word, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height - from flat to high. The style is predominantly (but not exclusively) worn by women.

I don't think the mule style was even in my shoe vocab until recently.  And, even when I started seeing this shoe style the height of the heel was way too extreme for my mommy feet:)  Recently, I was excited to come upon a few styles that work for my style as a mommy that goes beyond just flats.  Here are a few I'm adding to my wardrobe, stat!  For some reason, I prefer the style with an open toe instead of a closed toe...not sure why...but, that is what I am leaning towards.

Why I love them...they seem like an easy show to slip into on the go that aren't flip flops or sandals:)

These gems are from ZARA and I LOVE the chunky heel!  Plus, they are on sale right now!

I love the color of these and that they are patent leather...I feel like I haven't worn patent leather in forever...they just seem perfect for a resort getaway...who am I kidding...I will be wearing these all of the time!:)  Via H&M;)

Vintage is always a fun route to take with a style like this.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the heel!  ONLY $20 for these gems...too bad they are a size 5 1/2:)  Etsy never fails when searching for fun items like this at a great price!

#IIFA Awards 2014 fashion from the red carpets

This is a fun Indian awards show that has a ton of dancing and tons of amazing style!  Funny enough it's taped in the U.S. (in Tampa) so there were a few Hollywood stars like John Travolta attending the awards show and performing.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the red carpet:

Kareena Kapoor
I love the deep plunge that doesn't look too revealing like most dresses with cut outs.
Vaani Kapoor
Jeweled to perfection!

Parineeti Chopra in something different

Introducing: Neeta Lulla

I've shared Nishka Lulla's (Neeta's daughter) designs before...but, never her mothers, Neeta Lulla.  Apparently her mother has come out with a diffusion line which always makes me happy.  A little more accessible to everyone.  This collection is amazing!  I love the colors and silhouettes and the styling with this everyday sandal in India.
