Heavy Metal

July 21, 2014

I did a little glam chic today with a bit of a rocker edge.



I built the outfit around my Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale find:  a Tasha mesh collar necklace.  It also comes in silver and hematite.  Check it out here.

So Cleopatra-esque!  
I paired it with basic black tee, skinny jeans, classic black pumps, and an ivory moto jacket.

I found this vintage Italian Vanessa straw handbag at the local thrift store for a steal!

A bit of a challenge getting my short hair in a pony, but I did it!

A Rox butt for you doggy photobomb lovers!



Aww … time for feet up!

So, what did you find at the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale?

Don’t forget to make my day and follow me on Bloglovin’ and Instagram (@fashionshouldbefun)!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  

OXOX

    This outfit is perfect, especially the shoes!! Love the pose with your feet up. Sadly I did not get any Nordstrom sale finds but I do love the necklace your bought. It's so unique from all the usual statement necklaces that are making their way into the blogosphere. you have such a natural knack for nice outfit poses too!
