Trend Alert: Lace-up Sandals

OOTD - red pants, lace up sandals, black shoulder bag, white pri Aquazzura -snakeskin-lace-up-yellow-high-heeled-sandals-summer H&M-Boyfriend-Jeans-+-Grey-Tank-+-Shoemint-Lace-up-sandals-Romy-in-Tan-+-Leopard-Clutch-+-Shop-Caravan-reflective-sunglasses---Mirrored-sunglasses-10 Aquazzura lace up heels black

Talk about a seriously sexy sandal … say hello to the lace up sandal (perfect for Summer, and a great transition right into the Fall.)  And though the trend is nothing new, there was the the hugely popular Giuseppe Zanotti lace-up sandal in 2013, brands are going bigger and better with the 2014 update.  So many styles and patterns, and I’m thinking these could dress up a more casual cut of boyfriend jeans, or pair with an adorable party dress for a fancier occasion (check out how Hallie styled hers for a friend’s wedding … so glam.)

Get the Look for Less: Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag

The other day, while stumbling around the internet (you know, for blog “research”), I discovered a bag that looked incredibly similar to the highly coveted, already classic Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, at a fraction of the price and available right now (because sadly, Mansur Gavriel bags have waiting lists a mile long, most of which you may not even be able to get on at this time.)

Meet the Kelsi Dagger Wythe Bucket Hobo.  Though it may not be THE Mansur Gavriel bag (and street style star), this Kelsi Dagger Wythe Bucket Hobo gets the Mansur Gavriel look without trying too hard – paramount in great designer look-a-likes.  So impressed.

If you’re on the hunt for another real deal at a steal, check out these Valentino Rockstud look-a-likes.

How to Shop Instagram with #LIKETKIT

Lately you may have noticed that after some of my Instagram snaps, I share a stream of phrases: something like, link, #liketkit and @liketkit.  Essentially, any time I share a photo of something shoppable, i.e., a new pair of sandals or what I’m wearing in the photo, you can shop that Instagram picture individually.  I promise, this gets simple.  The new platform is called LiketoKNOWit.  You sign up here, plop in your email and sync it with your Instagram (it literally takes two minutes) and it will send you emails featuring the products from images you like.

likeit instagram

How to use it:

  1. Sign up!  Go to and sign in with your Instagram account.  (All you have to do is enter in your email address.)
  2. Get Liking!  Click “like” on a #liketkit image and you’ll get all the details about where to shop your favorite items.  You’ll notice a lot of bloggers and major websites are starting to include a link, #liketkit and @liketkit on their Instagram photos.  This means that the blogger/publication has enabled the service, and shoppable items from images that you have liked will be sent to you in a super convenient email (every hour, day, or week… based upon your preferences.)
  3. Check your email!  Once you like a photo, the details will be sent to you via email.  (By the way, if you want instant gratification, you can always just click the link in the Instagram photo … it will send you directly to a page where you can shop right away.  I told you it was easy!)

And be sure to follow along @glitterinclexi.  That’s all!  Let me know how it goes (and happy shopping.)


Street Style: Casual Classic

Breezy skirts and dresses, draped fabrics and linen, crisp yet billowy materials, I’m a sucker for the casual classic look.  And with Miami at the height of Summer heat, these looks are staples.

Jewelry Crushing: Personalized Charm Necklaces

Somewhere around the late 90s/early 2000s I became obsessed with dog tag necklaces, and though they weren’t incredibly chic, they had some serious cool factor.  And suddenly, in a major time warp (as most fashion trends go), dangling charm necklaces were back, in an utterly sophisticated way.  Hello, 2014!  Jennifer Fisher, edgy jewelry designer extraordinaire, for instance, has a line of create-your-own charm necklaces and they are both gorgeous and very much out-of-my-price-range. But I love the idea of combining a meaningful mix of charms – names, initials, dates, symbols and stones, with a touch of whimsy and couture.

“Everyone has their own lucky charms,” says Fisher, whose line is famous for its unique charm necklaces.  “My charm necklace is my armor … Everyone has those few pieces of jewelry that they don’t take off—the rings or necklaces or bracelets they wear every day—that make them feel empowered.”  {via}

I love it.  So I did a bit of homework …

Confessions of Shopaholic

It’s time for another round-up of my latest obsessions (a.k.a., the shopaholic confessions) … the Summer version; because when you’re at home on maternity leave, half-delusional from a major lack of sleep (love you still, baby girl), you pretend online shop.

On the hunt …

It’s August, which means I’m dreaming about a new paper agenda – even though my current agenda goes through the end of the year (I’m a serial agenda hoarder.)

I’m on the hunt for a new wallet – preferably something small, now that I’m trying to juggle the addition of a diaper bag and a 6-pound baby … love this bow-topped Mulberry wallet, though it’s a bit out of my price range.  Any suggestions for cute small-ish wallets, preferably in black?

And muscle tees – so edgy chic.  I love the cut, and it works surprisingly well with my not-so-busty torso (that’s the nice way of saying I rock an A-cup.)  ASOS also makes the most adorable a-line swing dresses with a muscle-tee style, and they are so cute on.

Jeweled sandals; I can’t get enough.

Stylish camera bags are my jam, and that Henri Bendel leather and calf hair version is awesome.

Also, is it boot season yet?  Loeffler Randall just gets it right, every single time.

What’s at the top of your shopping wishlist this Summer?
