Built-In Statement

Black and White Summer Outfir Idea
Most all of us love a good statement piece especially when it comes to making a statement across our collar bones. I definitely own my fair share of bold necklaces that complete simple outfits. Sometimes, in rare cases, one finds a top that comes with built-in baubles, doesn't get knotted, slide around or become lopsided as the day goes on. That rare occasion happened to me a few weeks ago. 

Rhinestone Statement Top
Stella and Dot Neon Yellow Tote
Neon Yellow Accessories
Elizabeth & West  Jeweled Baseball Top c/o // Forever 21 Shorts (old: similar here and here) // Stella & Dot Tote (on sale!) // Old Navy Espadrille Wedges (old: similar here and here) // Forever 21 Cuff Set (old: similar here and here

You see, my good blog buddy, Rebecca, started her own online shop and opened a brick and mortar store a few months ago called Elizabeth & West. I was so proud of and excited for her when she shared the good news and wanted to spread the word along to you guys.

At Elizabeth & West, you will find pieces and styles that you won't see offered on every other online boutique. Rebecca is somehow working her magic and able to offer items that are unique, on trend, exceptionally made and without a high-price ticket. 

I must say the jeweled baseball top I am wearing today is hands down my favorite, but take a look at this embroidered tribal print dress. I mean, it's a vision, hence the name. I am also slightly obsessed with these elephant print shorts. They have a 5" inseam which is right up my alley and it doesn't hurt that they have an absolutely adorable lace trim.

Are you sold on Elizabeth & West yet? I knew you would be. As you all know, I am an avid shopper at your typical big name retailers, but I adore, just as much, if not more, supporting small businesses like Rebecca's. This lady is living her American Dream and knowing that I can share her boutique that with all of  you, well that is just icing on the shopping cake.

Today, Rebecca is kindly offering one reader $50 to Elizabeth & West. This giveaway is open to US residents. Good luck and happy shopping. Have a great weekend!

P.S. Be sure to check out Rebecca's blog, Mommy in Heels for more style inspiration.
