Golden:: Lace Peplum and Houndstooth



Can this top be any more stunning? The gold lace, the peplum, the open back....it's just so opulent! I love how fancy it is, though I can also easily see myself dressing it down with a pair of jeans and a blazer. Very versatile. On this occasion, I decided to pair the top with a full skirt to emphasize the peplum's effect. I love how the mixed prints turned out!

Little Red Dress



This dress is perfection. While little black dresses are timeless and elegant, there's something about a little red dress that's so festive and exciting. As the weather cools, and the holidays approach,  red seems like the perfect color for a cocktail dress. It's still a very classic color, but is very bright and vivacious! I love the caged back detailing on this one too!

I decided to pair my black patent booties with the dress, instead of the usual, expected black pumps. A little more exciting, no?

Lace and Chiffon



Just when I thought it was finally cooling down for good, the temperature shoots right back up to 90 degrees! So much for sweater weather huh? I guess it's not so bad wearing summer outfits a little longer since I'm sure it'll be freezing in no time. I really do love wearing sheer, flowy fabrics when it's hot, since tend to feel cooler. I love the draped front on this NRFB top and the braided straps too. It's very romantic and girly, perfect for a hot summer/autumn day! 

By the way, can you tell that my hair is shorter and darker? :)

Nerdy Side




I’m currently channeling my inner nerd with these new glasses from Firmoo! Although I usually wear contacts, I like having a spare pair of glasses handy for days spent lounging around at home and watching TV/movies at night, since I have a tendency to fall asleep
Self-proclaimed as the “most popular online eyeglasses store,”  Firmoo carries a huge variety of prescription and sunglasses for both men and women at extremely affordable prices. And when I say extremely affordable, I mean under $100.
I found the ordering experience to be extremely streamlined and easy. I picked out the pair of glasses I wanted, then input my prescription, and I was good to go! I ordered prescription glasses, but non-prescription lenses are also available for those of you who just want to play with the nerdy look! Firmoo has a bunch of add-ons that are available for your glasses at pretty affordable prices as well , such as lens tinting, anti-glare coatings, polycarb lenses, as well as super thin lenses.
I know ordering glasses online seems pretty iffy since you can’t physically try them on, but that problem is solved with the virtual “try on” feature on the website.  You can upload a picture of yourself, or take a picture with your webcam. It’s pretty simple to do and I think gives a nice preview of how the glasses would look on your face.
All of the glasses come with a hard plastic case, a soft traveling pouch, a cleaning cloth, and a mini-repair kit that includes extra screws and mini screwdriver. I really love that you get a repair kit, as sometimes those screws can come undone after a while. As for the glasses themselves, they’re great! The lens prescription is perfect, and the glasses feel super light-weight and are very comfortable to wear.  And since they’re inexpensive, I don’t worry so much about them, since they’re always replaceable!
You guys can also get a free pair of glasses too! Firmoo currently has a promotion going on allowing new customers to receive a free pair of glasses. All you have to do is pay shipping! Check out the details here!
If you guys were wondering these are the glasses I’m wearing!  Although, I love these ones as well!
Check them out and let me know what you guys think!

Hidden :: White Button Down & Metallic Shorts



I can't get enough of this white button down! If you follow me on instagram (@bijouminou), you know how excited I was to receive this shirt from Sugarlips. I pretty much put it on as soon as I received it and it's been on frequent rotation in my closet lately as well. I have a thing for white button downs...well, button downs in general. Especially when they have unique details like this one does. The shirt features sequins not only on the cuff, but also hidden under the collar, which makes a subtle, yet glamorous statement. I'm all about the drapey fit too! I really hate when button downs are too stiff, but this one has a perfectly draped, loose fit that looks perfectly undone.
