'It Girl' Bag For A Fraction Of The Price

FashionVeronica ArrietaComment
IMG_2147.JPG

I shared this bag a few weeks ago as a total dupe to the Cult Gaia Ark bag that retails for $148...I'm sorry, what!! I've had it for over a month now and wanted give you my review/show you the bag up close.

First off, this might be the greatest dupe of a bag (only $40) I've ever seen and it's on Amazon Prime. I bought the Small and am very happy with how much it holds: a full sized wallet, sunglasses, phone, and lipsticks with room to spare. The bamboo pieces are held together by clear plastic thread (which you can see in the photos). Compared to what you'd pay for the real deal ($148), I think this is a very reasonable compromise (40). It's the perfect bag for spring and summer that matches with literally everything! Overall it seems very durable and I would definitely recommend. It also comes in black here

Must Have Spring Outfit

If you had to choose, are you a dress girl or pants girl? I'm very much a pants girl, always have been and always will be. Now, there will be an occasion when a dress is just too cute to pass up, but 90% of the time, I'm in jeans/pants. When I stumbled upon these white high-waisted distressed jeans with the perfect amount of stretch, I had to have them! And then I found this striped off-the-shoulder crop top and my eyes turned into the heart-eyed emoji. It was a match made in heaven! I love the stripe pattern and tassel tie detail. I was a little worried when I saw "crop top" because this Momma doesn't need to be wearing a crop top but it's so subtle with a high-waisted jean. This outfit gets me so excited for spring and summer...I will basically be living in this outfit so don't judge me when you see it 100x. :)

This Season's Best Swimwear

This season's best swimwear

We just got back from a little getaway to St. Kitts. And before my trip, I was on a swimsuit hunt. Now that Victoria's Secret no longer carries swimsuits, I had no idea where to go to look for swimsuits. And funny enough, I was talking to a girlfriend the other day and she asked me the same question. So I wanted to share my swimsuit finds with you!

So what did my search find? I was very shocked by American Eagle, they've really stepped up their game....one of the one piece swimsuits I ordered even had to be swapped out because it was a bit too cheeky for my behind! Some other retailers I've found the best swimsuits at are Nordstrom, Shein, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Amazon, and L*Space. Here are some of my favorite finds below.

Look For Less: Cult Gaia Handbag Dupe

FashionVeronica ArrietaComment
The best designer handbag dupe. The Cult Gaia handbag dupe for only $40!

So I'm headed to the Caribbean at the end of the month and have been on the hunt for swimsuits, cover ups, and warmer weather attire...hallelujah! As much as I love oversized seaters and leggings, this girl is ready for some warm sunshine! As I was on the hunt for some beach bags, I stumbled across one of the best dupes!

I've had my eye on this Cult Gia Bamboo Ark Bag for a few seasons now, but just cant bring myself to fork over the money. It seems like every "IT girl" is carrying this bag, which makes the rest of us want it too! I love how different the bag is. It’s most definitely a show stopping accessory; the shape and design are so eye catching. And let's not forget that it just so conveniently goes with every outfit - it's basically a neutral.

BUT y'all I'm happy to report that I found a dupe and it's good...I mean really good! If I haven't already lost you to the Amazon link here,  It’s available in a small (11″ x 3″ x 8″) and a large size (12.5″ x 4″ x 10.5″) which are both just $40 (including 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime). And it comes two different colors: the natural and black

I can't wait to rock this bag on my vacation and during Spring/Summer. I got the natural color in small. To me, it's worth buying the dupe over the original because it's more of an "IT bag" not a timeless piece.

Best of Target Shoes - Under $40

FashionVeronica ArrietaComment

Y'all I was in Target the other day and had to take a double take down the shoe aisle. Target is just killing it in the shoe department. It is so hard for me to hold back and not just buy all of the shoes. I was swooning over a few pairs and just had to share my favorite shoes at Target right now.
