Does everybody have to sing "Hollaback Girl" when they are spelling the word 'Bananas', or is it just me? The Banana Banana earrings by N2 are SO much fun! Whether you are paying homage to Gwen Stefani, or Carmen Miranda, you can liven up your ensemble with these fruity accessories! Let's see how Allison, Coco, and Duckie wear their Bananas!
Duckie went for a somewhat minimal look, but definitely with a fun twist in a Tiki inspired vintage shift dress and southwestern embroidered denim jacket.
"I love accessories that cause people to do a double take. These earrings definitely check that box!"

Coco went for a "Carmen Miranda as a Bobby Soxer" look, with a Hawaiian inspired skirt by Pinup Girl Clothing, and a bright yellow top. Keeping the colors bright, while only using one pattern, because you know, she wouldn't want to do too much. ;)
"If you didn't know, Carmen Miranda is one of my major style icons, and has been since I was 7 years old. Obviously, as soon as I saw the Banana earrings, I knew I needed a pair! I wear these a lot, with all kinds of clothes and looks. I had to go with an homage to Carmen for the blog post, and I knew my Parrot skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing was just the ticket!"

Allison is sleek and simple in cute black tee dress from Southern Trends, but adds a little quirky fun with the banana earrings! Allison's style is impeccable (as you can tell from her appearances in other blog posts), and I love how she has added the very subtle southwest influences with the Mishky Bracelets. Great job, Allison!
"These earrings always make me feel a little extra-festive for any occasion!"

See you next week,
Paris in the Springtime! Don't let all the movies and love songs fool you, Paris in the Spring is a Texan's sweater and coat weather! The bright side of being horribly unprepared in the clothing department was shopping for more weather appropriate attire!
I was directed to Printemps
, which means Springtime of all things. I was skeptical when I realized it was a department store, I like to shop small, find little boutiques with little brands...then I walked inside and everything changed. This was not just any department store this was the mother of all department stores! It was what all department stores should aspire to be! Two massive gilded doors were opened by two handsome young men in immaculately tailored suits, my heels clicked on the polished marble floor. Ladurée was on my right, Chanel was on my left it smelled of fresh flowers and expensive leather, I want that smell bottled! After walking around in a daze for a few minutes I began my mission. Level five and I became grand friends. Level five = Shoes. We found what we needed, and a few things that we didn't, Jess (my accomplice in all things shopping) and I said au revoir to Printemps then promptly recharged with macarons and tea.
After a grueling day of shopping for jackets and shoes!
The macarons Lemon, Melon and Deathly Rich Chocolate!
Amanda aka Duckie
