Spotted & Hauled!: NEW Sinful Colors Enchanted Collection

I am a huge fan of dusky, dark creme polishes. I've always liked the dusty quality to them, for some reason. They're not what girls typically wear, ya know? Not bright, red or pink, and cheery, and I loves it!
If you're also a fan of dark and dusty creme polishes, then the Enchanted collection from Sinful Colors will be right up your alley!

I picked up these murky beauties from my local Rite Aid, where they were $1.99 each...SUCH a bargain! There are 8 polishes total in this collection, but I only bought 6. I already owned two from the collection: Last Chance and Rain Storm

The six brand spankin' new colors I purchased are (from left to right) Muse, In The Mist, Jungle Trail, Mesmerize, Inkwell (my favorite, so far!), and Smokin.

I absolutely love the look of Inkwell! I know it looks black in pictures, and even more so in person, BUT it's a very, VERY dark and vampy purple! It's quite lovely and mesmerizing, to be honest. The fact that it tricked me at first glance into thinking it was black totally made me grab it...I knew something had to be up! No way was Sinful Colors going to give me a regular black polish amongst all these smokey delights! Nawl, not happenin'. And I was right! ^__^

So far, I love all the colors from this collection. They are SO on point for the fall season, and creme polishes and my favs. If you're someone that's not typically into dusty colors, I suggest you give one of these polishes a try. At $1.99, it won't hurt ya to try just one... ;P
*FYI* It has come to my attention that the Sinful Colors Enchanted collection is also being sold at Walgreens, but under a different name, At Walgreens, they're calling it the Sinful Colors Muse collection (named after one of the polishes from the collection...hmmm). I find it weird that they chose the name change for Walgreens stores, but whatevs.

Have you seen this collection yet? If so, did you pick up anything that tickled your fancy?

I have not been excited about flats in a long LOOOONG time...
that is, until I saw THESE babies!

They are indeed shoes shaped in the form of a mouse, but not just any mouse! These shoes are shaped like an edgy, fierce studded mouse! :)
These shoes are by the brand Bumper, a shoe brand I had not heard of until I found these lovely creatures! These shoes are called the Bumper Sappi Studded Flat.

As soon as I saw these shoes, I knew they were meant for me. However, it was upon further inspection that I realized these shoes reminded me of shoes I had longed for previously but never purchased because of the price...

The shoes I purchased are the budget-friendly version of the Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat!!!
The Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat sells for $250, while the Bumper Sappi Studded Flat was only $26 total, after shipping, because of a 20% off code I used! 
The only difference I can tell between the two versions of the mouse flat shoes is that the Marc By Marc Jacobs version is made of leather, and the Bumper version is made of velvet! I CAN DEAL
♥ ♥ ♥

I am overly excited about the Bumper mouse flat, I admit! I can't believe that FINALLY a dupe of the Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat has hit the streets! I've had my eye on the Marc Jacobs version for ages, but the price was not a price I was willing to pay (250 bucks for a pair of flats? NO THANK YOU...). Thankfully, now I won't have to! :D
If you're interested in the Bumper version of the mouse flat, I found them HERE! 

What do you think of these Bumper shoes?
Have you ever owned any shoes by this brand before? If so, how did you like them?
If not, are you interested now?
As far as I'm concerned, Bumper has gained a new fan!

MAJOR Trend of Fall 2012: Camouflage!

This Fall, you're going to be seeing camouflage EVERYWHERE, and camouflage EVERYTHING. Even your favorite celebrities *cough* Miley Cyrus *cough* are rockin' camo any chance they get!
There's an undeniable abundance of love of the military trend this season, and I don't think the trend is going anywhere, any time soon.
Something I'm sure everyone appreciates about the camouflage trend is that it can look edgy, girlie, cool, urban, or even elegant depending on how a person styles it! You've gotta love a versatile trend! ♥

What are you thoughts on this fashionable tribute to army influences? I plan on giving the trend some MAJOR love this Fall season!

Tribal Print Leggings OOTD + Revlon Chili NOTD


Can you guys believe it's September ALREADY?!?! I sure can't! It was just the beginning of August, I swear....
Time sure flies...and I'm getting tired of it! I wish it would slow down, for once :(
I'm excited for Fall, buuuut I'm gonna miss the Summer more than Rihanna misses Chris Brown :'(

Ah dah well...

Wanna take a look at what I wore during a musical event this weekend?

As you all know, I love mixing colors and prints together in different outfits! I'm guilty of doing that, yet again, with this outfit. I had to spice things up a lil' before the summer ended completely...
FYI, printed leggins & pants are a MAJOR trend this season! ;)

top - H&M
tribal/aztec print leggings - Silence & Noise (Urban Outfitters)
mint/sea foam green wedges - Deena & Ozzy (Urban Outfitters)

Now, for the nail color I've been wearing all week!

As far as I'm concerned, Revlon is continually WINNING!
This is Revlon Top Speed in Chili.

This red hot nail color is perfect for this upcoming fall season. Perfect, I say!

I believe I used four coats of polish to get the opacity you see here. Chili has a jelly finish, so it takes 4-5 coats to reach full opacity. I'm a big fan of jelly polishes, so I'm used to the extra coats that are necessary for no VNL (visible nail line).

I hope you guys like this outfit, and the lovely Revlon nail color! I also hope you're not missing Summer as much as I am :P
