My February Fashions

Happy last day of February babes! I am b e y o n d excited that this brutal AF winter is coming to a close because I am not a winter person whatsoever. At this point in the season my skin is as dry as the freakin’ Sahara and I’ve been wearing a grinch onesie to bed to keep me warm. Over it. I need summer, but I’ll even settle for summer’s less attractive yet still cute sister, spring. Anyways, here are some fashions I rocked in February, hope you like!

Military inspired fashions are currently all the rage. My jacket above is from forever 21 which I paired with faux leather joggers, also from forever. My booties are by Ash and my fabulous cherry red handbag is Marc Jacobs. I added a belt to cinch my waist creating an hourglass look. And of course my wrist is decked in my jewelry, Breedazzled.

 Ok my statement necklace in this pic kills me. How amazing is it? Another fab forever 21 find paired with an old ACDC shirt, destroyed jeans by TRIPP NYC, Breedazzled bracelets and a Chanel bag.

If you are a true fashionista, than you know that the denim on denim look is fire as of lately. I didn’t like my button down denim top with these pair of jeans at first because they weren’t ripped and the outfit seemed a little very fucking boring! However these jeans were the perfect color denim to rock with this top, so I made horizontal cuts in my jeans all the way down both legs simply using a scissor. Threw them in the wash to let the rips fray and there ya go, ripped jeans!

 You can purchase my “Blue Healing Stone Necklace” seen in this pic by clicking here. It is a new design of mine and if you don’t know that healing stones are a very popular jewelry item at the moment, now you know! 

A Very Vegan Super Bowl !

Congrats to the New England Patriots on their Super Bowl win yesterday. I am not a football fan by any means but I was hoping for a Patriots win because of the genetically perfect Tom Brady. Yes, that is a superficial reason but come on, he is just so freakin perfect. Anyways, as most Americans were devouring buffalo wings during the game, I was munching on Cauliflower “buffalo wings” which I made from a recipe I found on Pinterest. I also whipped up some guac and crispy pita chips. Below are the super simple recipes which I urge you to try. They are vegan recipes and are very healthy, so your bikini approves!

For the Cauliflower Buffalo Wings you will need: 

– Cauliflower cut into florets, I bought two bags of them from trader joes

– 1 cup white rice flour

– 1 cup water

– 1/4 teaspoon of each: salt, garlic powder and paprika

-1 cup of buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank’s because it is vegan)

20150201-185408.jpg

Directions:

Pre heat your oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl combine the flour, water, salt, garlic powder and paprika and whisk until combined

Cover your baking sheets in tin foil

Dip the Cauliflower into the mix and place on sheet. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes.

Take out of oven and dip each floret into a bowl containing the buffalo wing sauce.

Bake for another 5 minutes and enjoy!

20150201-185435.jpg

The finished product along with some guac & pita chips. To make the guac you will need:

- 3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

-1- 2 jalapeños, stem and seeds removed. I used 2 because I like it hot!

-1/2 cup red onion

- 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

-1/2 tsp sea salt

-dash of cumin

Mix in a blender for a creamy, smooth consistency & serve!

To make some fresh, crispy pita chips combine olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Cut falafel bread, I use a whole wheat one from trader joes, into smaller pieces. lightly coat in your olive oil mix & place on a tin foil covered baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes at 450 degrees. Take them out of the oven and flip the pieces over. Bake for another 5 minutes and then ENJOY!

Time to get cooking, mangia!

January Fashion Finds

 Normally at this point in the winter my “post christmas depression” hits me like a ton of pointed heel Louboutins. Out goes the excitement of the holiday season and in comes the realization that there are sooo many more days of cold weather left of the season. However, I spent most of January in sunny Naples, Florida so luckily I haven’t been a cold ass bitch much this winter. However, sunny or not, the mall pretty much sucks everywhere in January as the stores are trying to get rid of all of the shit that no one wanted and barely getting any new inventory in. How depressing for the shopoholics of America… Not me though! I still found some good attire, look below!

This Guns N’ Roses tank was such a great find on forever21.com! Band tees are always a good idea, especially with a killer bag and ripped jeans.

blogpost3

The same pair of jeans from the last pic (6 year old American Eagle ripped skinnies) only this time with a white tank by Groceries, a line of apparel made of 100 % recycled and organic materials. Not to mention made in LA, go America! I found this tank at a little hippie boutique but you can purchase their produts on groceriesapparel.com. It is the softest tank I have ever felt and I bought it on sale for about 20.00 (normally their tanks & tops range from 30.00 to 50.00 which is not bad for soft, organic materials).

blogpost4

The same Chinese Landry shoes from the last pic only this time paired with black high wasted skinnies and this fabulous lace bralette found at TopShop in Nordstorm. I actually bought this top at the end of December with the intent of wearing it for NYE. However I ended up wearing it a few weeks later to dinner in Florida. The Dark Green color of the lace looked perfect paired with a blue druzy necklace by Breedazzled along with a few Breedazzled bracelets.

blogpost2

I am not wearing any new clothing in this pic, however I am wearing a few new Breedazzled bracelets paired with a free people tie dyed top and David Lerner leggings. My kicks of choice were converse because I had a day of running around and was going for the comfy but cool vibe.

Speaking of “comfy but cool” thats exactly how I would describe my tie dyed slouchy pants by Haute Hippie which I found super on sale at the Saks Off 5th outlet in Florida! My top is also new, a forever21.com purchase, surprise! My belt is Free People and my “comfy but cool” shoes are Nike sneaker wedges AKA my soul mate in shoe form.

blogpost6

Like I said on my instagram @thebreedazzledlifestyle “Travel in style with comfort in mind.” That is why I chose my Nike sweatpants I recently bought from Dicks Sporting goods & Athleta sweatshirt, which was a fab christmas gift, as my airport attire of choice. Both pieces are super warm and comfy without being frumpy. Paired with my sneaker wedges, a leather jacket and blingy Breedazzled jewelry, the sporty look becomes super stylish.

That is the end of my post, purchases & Florida trip. See you again soon!

New Year, New Clothes, New You

Happy New Year BABES! 

I Hope everyone rang in 2015 sipping chugging a glass of champagne, rocking tight black pants & dancing with some baes. I know I did! Anyways, I am not a fan of the whole “New Years Resolution” thing because I prefer to work on myself every day of the year & do not need the excuse of a “New Year” to better myself. To me, 2015 will be another year of working out, eating healthy (most of the time), being kind (also most of the time but I can’t control PMS or people that piss me off) & working on my career. However this year is also a little different, in a very awesome way. I will officially enter the fashion world having just received my Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship from the Fashion Institute of Technology AKA the “Harvard of Fashion” (I like that better because it makes me sound ivy league-ish). I am pumped for this new chapter in my crazy ass book of life and have never been more excited for a new year than I am for 2015. So what I am going to do this year, and no this is not a resolution because unlike many “avid resolutioners” I am actually going to do this, is KICK ASS. Not literally because I’m like Buddhist and don’t believe in human violence really. But kick ass in the fashion industry and in every aspect of my life. And I advise you all to do the same. Start living the life you imagine because as Buddha said “What you think, you become.” Now here are some fashions, if you were slacking on your outfit game in 2014, time to amp up your wardrobe. Happy Shopping!

20150104-144242.jpg

To Dark Horse Lounge in Morristown, NJ I go. It was my friend Rosanna’s  birthday & apparently I woke up on the hipster bitch side of the bed that day. Top is from Forever 21, leggings are from Urban Outfitters. Accessorized with my Rayban glasses, Converse high tops, Chanel handbag & Breedazzled jewelry.

20150104-144327.jpg

I tried to find a cute dress for my Grad party at the Brownstone (yes the real housewives of NJ Brownstone)  but had no luck. I rocked a sequin crop top & faux fur jacket from Forever 21, high waisted skinnies from Urban Outfitters & Breedazzled jewelry.

20150104-144443.jpg

Makeup of the night was Chanel. I found the most perfect faux crystal necklace from forever 21 for 4.80 that added some bohemian-ness to my sequin top. **CRYSTAL NECKLACES ARE SUCH A TREND RN**

20150104-144518.jpg

I wore these super cute combat boot heels from Forever 21 which you can slightly see in this pic. My sister (far right) looked hot in her Brandy Melville tee, Forever 21 faux fur vest and Target stockings.

20150104-144757.jpgMyself and my girl Kayla taking our last mirror selfie of 2014. I wish everyone a happy, healthy, wealthy & stylish New Year!

PS: If you were a really big BITCH in 2015, and trust me it happens Breezus does not judge,  Buddha has some words for you entering the new year…

20131028-081403

Ok, Buddha did not say that, but still try!

It may be cold but you should still look HOT

Tis the season of furry coats & beanies, it’s winter BITCHES! Well, technically it’s still fall but winter starts on the 21st which is in like a minute soooo.. Anyways, winter fashion. How do you look cute and stay super warm at the same time? You don’t. And when one is forced to choose fashion over function, one chooses fashion. ALWAYS. There is nothing cute about those intense winter marshmallow-like jackets or Ugg boots. They are called Ugg for a reason, although comfy, they are fucking ugly. Keep them in the house ladies, they hurt my eyes. Here’s what I have been rocking lately. If I can pull myself together and galavant around Manhattan like I’m not cold and miserable, you can do it too. Stay strong my fashion friends.

PS: A little wine before you leave your cozy home and brave the cold always helps. Or a lot of wine. Your choice, Breezus doesn’t judge.

Another PS: Forever 21 has the most AMAZING faux furs. There really is no reason to wear real fur, faux is way cheap and not an animal! Like I said, Breezus doesn’t judge BUT….  Pro Faux!

20141214-145605.jpg

What I rocked to the office on my last day as a sales & showroom intern.  Faux fur jacket which I recently purchased on forever21.com, I am obsessed with it! I paired it with my beaded Parker jacket which is seen peeking out underneath, a marble gray top, faux leather joggers from forever 21 and my combat boots.

20141214-145702.jpg

A night out in the city. Ripped jeggings from American Eagle. Gray sweater from forever 21, moto jacket from TopShop. Also, combat boot heels from forever 21 (not shown).

20141214-145755.jpg

Off to Santa Con!  Red checkered blouse from LF (bought during their sale, duh!), thermal from free people & an arm full of breedazzled bracelets as well as a lokai bracelet.

20141214-145817.jpg

Paired with black jeggings of course!

20141214-145852.jpg

Sami’s birthday celebrations at BBar! I rocked a gypsy top from threadsence.com (New shoppers get 20 % off! ), ripped jeggings from American Eagle (same pants from outfit above, they are my fave) , Botkier handbag from a ZILLION years ago (but still fab)….

20141214-145917.jpg

And topped it off with a hat! And breedazzled.

20141214-150010.jpg

And for my final exams…. sweats OBVS. Even in comfy attire, your jewelry game still must be on FLEEK. Necklace from Urban Outfitters, sweatshirt was a gift from my bestie. Choker (top necklace) is breedazzled.

 Sweatshirt from Urban Outfitters. Ornate slave bracelet by breedazzled.

Fall Fashions: lots of black & bling

I cannot believe it is the end of October! This busy semester filled with tons of homework and long hours of interning is flying by. Luckily, I graduate in December and will soon be on to the next phase of my life. In the meantime, I wanted to post some fashion pics of my recent outfits because I miss blogging and sharing my style. Below are some fall fashion inspirations, hope everyone has a spectacular weekend! Xx B

20141024-121248.jpg

I Love this “AIN’t LAURENT without yves” sweatshirt I bought last winter from Pac Sun. I cut off the bottom (not pictured) so it is kind of cropped. I paired it with my Breedazzled bracelets, statement ring, statement necklace from Urban Outfitters, and leather leggings and I was off to my internship!

20141024-121338.jpg

I wore this last weekend to a friend’s apartment for a get together. My ripped jeans are by One Teaspoon and are kinda rockstar-ish which I LOVE! My blouse is from Urban Outfitters and my black oversized back is Tylie Malibu. And of course, the long gold beaded necklace I am rocking is Breedazzled.

20141024-121452.jpg

This outfit is so comfy! I wore it to my internship on a rainy day. My dark gray cargo pants are from Urban Outfitters last year. My black belt is from American Eagle, I bought it for 8 dollars (they have the best sales) and my fancy sweatshirt is by free people. 

20141024-121601.jpgThis is what I look like at my internship if it is NOT raining. My Steve Madden combat boots, two dresses layered (nude dress is Brandy Melville & black is Gypsy Warrior, a denim jacket from Forever 21, and some Breedazzled bracelets.

 

TropiKale Smoothie Recipe

The last official days of summer are upon us and it has my sun loving self a little sad. I have a huge issue with jackets and live in the North East so I am not excited for the dropping temperatures (besides that fact that it is beanie season of course #BitchesLoveBeanies). That being said, I have been making my smoothies extra tropical; if it cannot be summer it might as well taste like it. Below are the ingredients for my TropiKale Smoothie. It is super simple to make and is basically a margarita for healthy people… Enjoy XX b

tropikale

1 banana

A few handfuls of frozen kale

1 cup of frozen fruit; strawberries, pineapple and mango (I buy the combined pack in Trader Joes)

Almond milk
