Dress: La Femme (also love this one) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Earrings: Nordstrom 

This past Saturday night, I had the pleasure of going to Reward Style’s official launch party of the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, and it was an absolute blast! The attire was black tie, so when I saw this dress, I knew it would be absolutely perfect! The cut is so flattering and the fabric is very breathable.

For those of y’all in high school, prom is just right around the corner, so I’ve linked all my favorite dresses below! I know prom dress shopping can be a little stressful, but luckily Nordstrom makes it SO easy! They have everything you need, from short dresses, to long dresses at every price point. If you don’t live near a Nordstrom, they offer free shipping AND free returns, so you can do everything from the comfort of your home!

Happy Sunday, cuties! I just got home from an amazing weekend at the Reward Style conference! It was such an amazing experience, getting to learn from some of the best in the business and getting to meet so many boss babes! I follow so many incredible people on social media, but it’s so fun meeting them in person! And let me tell you, they are just as gorgeous in person as they are on their blogs!

I prepped for the conference by heading to Nordstrom and getting all my outfits, shoes, an accessories! Since there were many different events all throughout the weekend, from brand meetings to cocktail parties, I needed tons of outfits. I loved being to able to purchase everything I needed from the same place and having it shipped to my house for free!

I got this little floral romper last week and am just in love with the pattern! Florals are one of my favorite spring trends, which is why I was immediately drawn to this romper… then I saw the back and I was SOLD!

If you’ve never heard of Barrington bags, you have to go checkout their website because everything is customizable. You get to pick everything, from the print to the monogram stripe! I choose the checkered pattern for my tote and duffle bag, which I get compliments on ALL the time. This pattern is a classic and will never go out of style!

Floral Free People Dress

Dress: Free People (also love this one)| Shoes: Dolce Vita (on sale) | Purse: Similar | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelet: David Yurman | Bracelet: Nordstrom

Free People has done it again! Y’all, I could not be more in love with this little number! The pattern, the low-cut front, the overall fit of the dress- it’s all perfection!

I was shopping with my mom at Nordstrom last weekend when I saw this dress, and instantly knew I had to have it! Nordstrom is always our go-to store (hehe what’s new), because we can both shop our favorite brands in one place! It has honestly gotten to the point where when I say “hey let’s go shopping”, she doesn’t ask where, we just meet at Nordstrom (LOL)! It’s just so convenient because I can put together a full outfit, from clothing, to shoes, to jewelry without leaving the store!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Happy Friday, ladies!! So one of the most frequent questions that I get asked is “where did the name ‘Champagne and Chanel’ come from?!”. Well, that old saying “champagne taste on a beer budget” is literally the story of my life! Therefore, when I started my blog, I made it my mission to provide my readers with high quality, trendy fashion pieces at affordable prices.

I am SO excited to be collaborating with Red Dress Boutique today, because their store embodies that mission perfectly.

Let me tell you, if you see something you love, snatch it up FAST! It will sell out!! My two piece set above is currently on backorder, BUT the romper is in stock right now! It also comes in white, which is just adorable!

Eye Lash Extensions with Amazing Lash Studio- College Station

lash extensions lash extensions

Lash Extensions: Amazing Lash Studio– College Station | Top: Nordstrom | Foundation: Makeup Forever HD Stick | Concealer: Urban Decay | Powder: NARS | Blush: Bobbi Brown | Bronzer: Urban Decay | Eye Shadow: Urban Decay | Eyeliner: Marc Jacobs | Eye Brow Gel: Anastasia Beverly Hills | Lip liner: Stilla (Pink Moscato) | Lipstick: Stilla (Baci)

Hi friends! Today I’m gonna answer all the questions I get about my eyelash extensions! I naturally have very short eyelashes, so these things are lifesavers! I feel like beautiful lashes make your eyes pop, which I absolutely love! If you’re in the College Station area, I got mine done at Amazing Lash Studio. Luckily they have tons of locations, so no matter where you’re located, hopefully there is one close to you!

How long do they last?

After you get your first set, you will need to get a refill after about three weeks. This time frame depends on how well you take care of them. Make sure to wash them with appropriate soap (they sell soap at the studio), and do not put any oil products on them (this includes mascara with oil).

Are they uncomfortable?

NO, not at all!! Honestly you can’t feel them at all! I’ve always had issues with picking at my eyelashes (probably why my natural lashes are nonexistent), so that’s the only problem I have with them!

How long does it take to apply?

It honestly depends on your technician. Some will take about an hour and some will take up to two hours!

Can you wear mascara with them?

Yes! As I said above, just make sure the mascara does not contain oil. They sell a great mascara at Amazing Lash Studio.
