Color + Resin Earrings

Coat: Beth Bowley; Jacket: Kenneth Cole; Dress: Danny & Nicole (Thrifted); Shoes: Purchased in Italy; Scarf: Untitled; Earrings: c/o Element47

I am so excited about these unique and fabulous resin earrings gifted to me by owner/artist Amy Gresens, founder of Element47.  Her jewelry is colorful and unique!  Her designs are inspired by simple geometric and organic shapes that have vibrant, rich colors. Her collection of work encompasses the fusion of metals and rich colored alternative materials (such as resin and felt) to create dynamic contrasts that are extraordinarily unique.  

Be sure to check out the Etsy gallery for the latest designs from Element47 here.  Amy has extended an exclusive promotional offer to my fashionable followers – a whooping 15% off her collection until March 5, 2012.  Promo code:  MINTALAMODE15

In the photo, I am wearing her resin, clear and gold circle earrings that are so light weight.  The ear wires are sterling silver.  I purchased her copper teardrop earrings a few months ago from the Beehive boutique in Atlanta and love them dearly.

Let me know if you purchase any of her items.

Happy shopping!

Diagonal Tweed

Jacket: Classiques Entier, Tunic: Say What?, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: Italian Unlisted; Bag: Michael Kors

Hello lovely people!  I have an EXCITING deal to share with you guys soon, so be on the lookout.

It was sooooo cold on the day that I paired this diagonal tweed skirt, turtleneck and suede jacket together.  The turtleneck was passed down to me and I purchased this adorable suede jacket (fanatical about the lining) from a local consignment shop.  My mom gave me this crocheted belt (70s inspired).

These boots where purchased at a STEAL of a deal in Florence, Italy and they feel like butter.  :)

I’m really into copper jewelry, so I had to break out this cuff again.  I always have my hair straightened every 6-8 weeks, so I’m loving my silky strands right about now…definitely less maintenance.

Hope this post finds you all well.

I am so into cropped trousers!  I have to purchase more…they are so girly and fits into the menswear inspired trend.  Such a classic staple item to have in your closet!

I purchased these pinstripe trousers from Goodwill and got this Michael Kors button down shirt at an outlet for cheap…I ♥ a good deal.  :)

What do you guys think?

Traditional Trench

Dress: Just Taylor; Trench: Vertigo Paris (similar here); Bag: Michael Kors; Tights: Apostrophe; Shoes: Steve Madden; Copper Cuffs: Vintage; Earrings: Local Boutique

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much for the support amongst my existing and new followers.  It makes me so happy to share my wardrobe as a fashion canvas with you all.

Today, I’m wearing this lovely Taylor dress that I wore this same time last year.  You can check out how it wore it by clicking here.  I paired it with these cool peacock earrings and vintage copper cuffed bracelets worn on each wrist.  I like the “She-rah” effect.  (Ha!) 

A friend passed along these tights to me.  These classic brown Steve Madden heels are a staple shoe in my closet…especially for the winter months.

I hope that you all are having a great week.  Check back for more posts this month.

Oh…..are you following me on Pinterest, Instagram, and/or Twitter?  I would love to hear from you.

Chic Bun

Earrings: Vintage; Shirt: BCBG; Pants: French Connection; Belt: H&M

Ok, I’ve been seeing so many people wear a chic bun, so I thought, “hey, why not try it?”  And so I did, for a 20-year anniversary party that my Hubby and I went to this past Saturday.

I’m sorry that I do not have a full body shot so that you can see my wide legged pants and satin red, high heels.

Nonetheless, I hope that you all had a great weekend.

Suits Me

Suit: Nine West; Blouse: DKNY; Shoes: Aldo; Earrings: Element 47

I know that most women think that a suit can be “out-of-date”, but I stumbled across this Nine West skirt suit that I've had in my closet about 4 years now.  It’s a brocade fabric and the skirt has a unique flounce to it.  I paired it with a silk blush DKNY tie blouse and black heels.

Oh, and I purchased these adorable earrings from The Beehive, a boutique in Atlanta that has so many cute and unique girly jewelry, clothes, and more!

Have you worn a nice pant or skirt suit lately?

One last thing...I'm now on Instagram, so please follow me @mintalamode.  :)

My Treat

Michael Kors
“She works hard for the money….so hard for the money…”  I have Donna Summer’s song stuck in my head.  :)  I concur with her statement.  I work so hard for my money that I decided to treat myself to this Michael Kors tote bag that is so classic and timeless.  I really only own one other designer purse that I purchased in Italy, Burberry, which I love to break out this time of year since plaids make me think of the fall and winter months.

This tobacco colored bag goes with everything, from blacks to greens to crèmes.  Loves it! versatile...

What do you guys think of it?
