I love costume jewelry, but really hate spending lots of money on it. I just don’t see the point in investing several hundreds of dollars in something that’s not even real gold (alright, YSL’s Arty ring is excluded from this testimony). Call me frugal, call me cheap, whatever! Luckily, we have BaubleBar where you get the best of both worlds: trendy and up-to-date statement jewelry for affordable prices and in a decent quality on top. Most of their items are under $30 (many under $40!) like their highly popular 360 Stud Earrings (aka the Mise en Dior dupe). What’s great about BaubleBar is that they offer free shipping (both ways!) on all US orders. And what’s even greater is that you can get 15% off your first order if you sign up to the BaubleBar newsletter. Steal deal alert! Plus, now that gift season is upon us: all of their jewelry comes in (free!) gorgeous, giftable boxes. Perfect for any christmas present! Below are a few of our personal BaubleBar favorites.

So I am usually neither a big fan of chunky military boots nor am I a white shoes person, but the moment I spotted these all white Doc Martens on Solestruck’s Instagram I was OBSESSED! I instantly pictured an outfit with them in my head and had to share it with you. I really can’t get enough of black and white lately, can you? And what do you think of the look or the monochrome standout boots? Yay or nay?

I’ve always liked Michael Kors watches and have been wanting one for years, but they became so overly popular in the last two years that I didn’t really feel like being one of the many trend sheep following this hype. However, Kors has recently created a fabulous new charity capsule collection called “Watch Hunger Stop” where every sold watch equals 100 meals delivered to children in need. Apart from being absolutely in love with the gold-turquoise color combo and the world map face, I love the idea that by gifting this watch (e.g. for the upcoming christmas), you are also doing good to the world. Perfect gift idea, don’t you agree?
Michael Kors has joined forces with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to fight global hunger. For every sale of the 100 Series watch, WFP will deliver 100 meals to children in need. The support so far has been overwhelming. Thanks to you, we have already delivered over 1 million meals around the world.

I think I’m in love. How could I not be? Just look at this gorgeous, vibrant blue suede chain strap bag by Choies! I’ve always been a fan of mixing blue and gold together; it’s such a luxe-looking color combo, don’t you agree? I love the minimalistic design and the clean lines, it reminds me of a suede bag I’ve seen at ZARA once, only ZARA’s was black and blue is so much better obviously.

If you’re looking for some fashion inspiration for the upcoming Spring and want to see a beautifully designed lookbook, then you have to check out Ted Baker‘s S/S 2013 collection. The lookbook is absolutely amazing to look at and the clothes shown there are just as lustworthy. Pastels, florals, brights and delicate tailoring – these seem to be Ted Baker’s key themes for the S/S 2013 collection.

Not exactly budget-friendly, but a few of the items definitely have investment potential (e.g. the jacquard Pattern Blazer shown in the look below).
