Gift Guide Day 6: A Chic Multitasker

GG 2015-6

We all have them: the moments when you’re too lazy to take your whole purse or wallet out on an errand, so you just a grab a few individual cards for your pocket instead.  And, if you’re anything like me, you end up forgetting to put them back, and are debit-cardless at the checkout a few days later.  This multitasking Hailey Wristlet from Danier solves this problem in a super-chic and simple way.  Made of glazed leather, (and measuring 7.5″ W x 3.75″ H x 0.88″ D), this wristlet comes with 3 pieces: the wallet, the removable card slot, and the wristlet attachment.  The 3 individual pieces allow you to use this wallet a variety of ways: as a wristlet or clutch, as a wallet in your purse, or as a slim, handy cardholder when you’re on the run.  Just keep your driver’s license, health card, and debit card in the removable holder, and voila, you’re all set for your late night Ben and Jerry’s run.  The Hailey Wristlet comes in a variety of colours (shown above in Grey Python), and is currently on sale for less than $50.00!

Outfit Reveal: “She Who Hunts Finds” Challenge (Part 2)

Outfit Reveal

While I’m a true Summer girl at heart, I have to admit I love Fall fashion: the colours, the cozy fabrics, and the layering.  I knew that for this challenge, I wanted to create an outfit that encompassed all of these things.  My first stop upon arriving at Dixie Outlet Mall last Saturday morning was Winners.  I’m a huge fan of Winners and I always seem to find great deals at the Dixie Outlet Mall location.

At Winners, I scored this gorgeous pocketed red and black vest.  I loved that it was a little edgy and lumberjack-inspired, but in a girly way with its beautiful draping and cozy fabric.  This vest retails for $70.00, but I scored it for just $39.99! I love that you can wear it as a chic cape as well (shown below).

The vest was the piece that inspired the rest of my outfit (I found it within 5 minutes of entering the mall!).  Since I styled a fun jumpsuit for the Spring challenge, I knew this time I wanted to purchase a classic dress: something that could be worn to work, an event, or a night on the town.  I found this Cynthia Rowley dress at Winners.  It’s a thick (and super forgiving) fabric, with a classy length, and pockets (need I say more!?).  Even better? This dress is an outfit in itself! It retails for $80.00, but I scored it for just $39.99.

With the dress and vest purchased, my next stop was to grab a fun statement necklace (not a surprise if you know me well).  I wanted something colourful, but not something that would compete too much with the patterned vest.  I found this fun red statement necklace at Payless Shoe Source for just $4.00 (regular $19.99).

On to Claire’s, where I purchased a pair of earrings, and a cute set of midi rings.  I knew I wanted to go with stud earrings, so as to not take away from the necklace-and-vest combo.  I decided to go with this set of earrings (which came with a third pair as well).  I thought it would be a cute touch to include a pair of leaf earrings: so very Fall inspired!  The rings were just a fun extra, and I loved that they were simple and understated.   The set of 2 rings, and the set of 3 earrings were both $2.00 each (regular $4.00 and $12.00, respectively).

Earrings

For a purse, I headed to Danier with the intention of purchasing a cute neutral clutch.  I spotted this chic over-the-shoulder bag (on sale!), and fell in the love with the tassel detail, and the fact that you can wear it multiple ways.  This leather bag retails for $129.00, but I scored it for just $47.99!

Finally, my trip to Dixie Outlet Mall came full circle, and I finished back where I started: at Winners.  I purchased these super comfy open-back black booties that I’d eyed in the morning, and couldn’t get out of my mind.  These retail for $55.00, and I purchased them for $39.99.

Elyse 7

Overall, I spent $198.84 and saved a total of $194.03!  My Eagle shopping persona definitely held true as I made my way around the mall: I knew what I wanted, and I wouldn’t stop until I found it (I was there open-to-close!).  I’m super excited with my #DixieDeals, and am looking forward to wearing this outfit to work or a date (hayride or fall festival, anyone?).  What would you buy with $200.00 at Dixie Outlet Mall? Check back soon for a chance to win your own shopping spree!

How I Style: Statement Necklaces

Statement Necklace

It’s no secret that statement necklaces are a wardrobe staple of mine.  T-shirts, dresses, sweatshirts: necklines just look that much better with a gorgeous, sparkly piece around them.  What I also love about a good statement necklace, is its versatility: work, date night or a lazy Sunday, there’s one for every possible occasion.

Enter the stunner featured in the pictures below, from Cards and Presents in Toronto (check them out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).  I highly recommend this necklace: it is of great quality and has a strong lobster-clasp closure.  This beauty (in my favourite colour) retails for $20.00 Cdn +tax, and can be purchased in-person at Cards and Presents’ location in Toronto (245 Queen Street West; you can’t miss the pink storefront!).  Or, you can purchase it from their new online store, which launched October 1st (don’t you just love being able to shop in your yoga pants?!).  Use code “CANSHIP” for free shipping within Canada until November 15th!

Check out the different ways I like to wear this necklace below, and visit me on Instagram at  @elyse270 to see some additional pics.  Let’s get started!

1. Work

Feel like it just takes too much effort to stumble out of bed and get ready for work most mornings?  You can sleep in, put your hair in a ponytail, pop on a sparkly necklace, and you’re insta-glam. Problem solved.  Pair it with dress pants and a simple tee, and you’re good to go.

2. Weekend

When it comes to the weekend, I’m all about keeping my outfit simple and comfy.  I also love the idea of pairing a statement necklace with these comfier clothes; it makes you feel a little more put-together in your leggings or flowy maxi skirt.

 3. A Night Out

To me, date night or a night out on the town is a fun event, and so I think your outfit should follow suit.  Now is the time to wear all the things you can’t wear to work on a daily basis: leggings, tighter fitting clothing, or denim.  It’s also the perfect opportunity to throw on a glitzy piece of statement jewelry, and hit the town!
