Bling Bling Lollipops!

Las Vegas is my newfound favorite destination, with all the bright lights, fabulous designer shops, and unbelievable entertainment. One of my favorite chic spots that I ventured to during my trip was the famous "Sugar Factory".

Some of the delicious sweets and treats in the Sugar Factory store!
The Sugar Factory is known not only for it's insanely delicious menu and plethora of scrumptious drinks and desserts, but for their fab shop that features some great gifts and souvenirs.
The one thing that I had to scoop up on my arrival to the Las Vegas Sugar Factory was their signature Swarovski crystal lollipop!The Sugar Factory has tons of lollipop designs to choose from, even some designed by celebrities such as Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian.
My fierce pop was inspired by none other than Hello Kitty. Adorned with varying pink crystals this lollipop takes over the top fab to another level.
Here is how it works: Sugar Factory has created bejeweled and custom handles you can pair with a rainbow of lollipop flavors to create your own custom sweet sensation. When you have finished your pop, all you do is unscrew the pop from the bejeweled handle and replace it with a new lollipop. The Sugar Factory sells replacement lollipops in every flavor imaginable online and in their stores. 
Can't make it to Vegas? No need to worry, you can purchase the Sugar Factory lollipop online! Go to to check out all of the amazing designs.

Retail Price for swarovski lollipop stick (includes one lollipop): $25- $30
Retail price for 3 pack of replacement lollipops: $12

STYLISH GIRL + GRETCHY has leveraged the STYLISH GIRL virtual closet platform in a way that will definitely please! DDN Media’s Dimitar Popovski, STYLISH GIRL Co-Founder, says, "We received tons of emails from users telling us how they cannot wake up in the morning without checking the [STYLISH GIRL] app to see what outfit they will wear…a large portion of the users are heavily involved in seeing what is in the stores, making outfits and buying items online." Where STYLISH GIRL users catalogue their wardrobes via their iPhone, iTouch or iPad, GRETCHY members ”trade in” dresses in order to refresh their wardrobes. Gretchen Hackmann, GRETCHY Co-Founder, explains, “Our members can essentially build their own cash account to buy new dresses on GRETCHY by trading in dresses they will no longer wear. STYLISH GIRL + GRETCHY will now further enable our members to visualize their dresses via iPhone, decide what new dresses they need to buy, and which dresses to trade in!” As Britt Hackmann, GRETCHY Co-founder, puts it, “Today’s fashion is all about maximizing the ROI on the clothes that you own and the clothes that you need to buy.”

Trend Alert: Natural Stone Jewelry

I am always up for a new jewelry trend, and fashionistas, I have scoped out the hottest one! Natural stone jewelry is everywhere right now, being crafted by some of my jewelry favorites. Stones featured include "rough" or "raw" cuts of citrine, druzy, jasper, opal, and quartz stones, to name a few.
The hottest and most saught-after pieces are bracelets, rings, and pendants featuring natural stones. These pieces have such a unique vibe and natural look to them- they are statement jewelry in an understated way.

Here are some of my favorite pieces that go with this hot trend:
Melissa Joy Manning Black Druzy Ring
Jody Candrian Jewelry Sterling Silver Cuff with Raw Citrine
Jody Candrian Jewelry Black Quartz & Pyrite Ring
Melissa Joy Manning Agate Wrap Cuff
Melissa Joy Manning Spessartite on Quartz Necklace
All of these pieces are available on ShopBop, click here for an invite to join:

What do you think of this trend? Would you rock natural stone jewels?

Rugby Crochet Cropped Jacket

Who couldn't love this luxe and femme fabulously chic Rugby Crochet Cropped Jacket?! I picked up this intricate classic at Rugby in Greenwich CT, one of my go-to favorite stores.
I had to have this fabulous crochet cropped jacket when I saw it- trust me these photos don't do it justice. It mixes so many trends into one- the sheer/see-through cotton crochet with gossamer quality is spot on with the summer trends, while the delicate design channels a vintage chic vibe. It's bright white shade makes it a go-to match for basically any outfit!

This light-as-air look features a vintage-chic cropped hem silhouette with feminine elbow sleeves and crew neckline. In addition, six mother-of-pearl buttons are at the turn-back placket- it is just lovely! 

You can purchase this at Rugby by Ralph Lauren.
