Hump-Day Hearsay Debut: Weekly Midweek Round-Up

Happy Wednesday, everyone! In an attempt to develop some systematic organization on my blog, and, more importantly, to give my readers something to look forward to every week, instead of simply posting a roundup of links once a week on the weekends, that I am going to do a link roundup bi-weekly! I feel like there are far too many blogs on the Internet these days with far too much interesting, useful, and/or just generally enjoyable content to just do a link roundup once a week. Maybe I am just a complete blog nerd junkie, but I really enjoy browsing through blog after blog looking for unique content. Even more proof that I am a complete blog nerd junkie, I may or may not get a rush feeling when I stumble upon a blog post with unique content, and I want nothing more than to pass on this content to others.
Also, moving away from my complete blog nerd junkie tendencies, it is a temporary pick-me-up in the midst of the seemingly never-ending work week. So, without further adieu, I introduce you to the debut of my Wednesday link roundup, (and I have to admit, I am a little bit proud of the name I came up with for my Wednesday link roundup): Hump-Day Hearsay

I don’t know about anyone else, but everyone time I allow myself to go on the J.Crew website, it’s just a recipe for disaster to my bank account. I’ll have you all know that looking through their October Style Guide did not make things any easier.

I am going through a border-line inappropriate obsession with chic interior decor right now, so when I saw this AMAZE closet and work space I just about cried.

Just in case you have been living under a rock, or don’t have a Twitter account, I took upon myself to let you all know that Zara Home is now available in the United States as of yesterday. I am swooning over this wooster table.

For all you beauty and product enthusiasts, make sure you check out the newly-launched members-only site, Coterie, where you can find a selective collection of some of the most sought after beauty products.

Last, but not least, how cute is this ikat sequin top from Boohoo? It’s way too affordable too. I think I need it.

I hope you all enjoyed the first post of my Hump-Day Hearsay! Let me know what you think and/or if you have any suggestions.

What are the best links you’ve read so far this week? Any new discoveries on the world wide web that you think people need to know about?

Shoemint Fall Handbags

If you haven’t already heard, Rachel Bilson’s shoe website, Shoemint, is no longer just shoes.  This summer, they launched a collection of handbags that were quite the crowd pleasers.  Well, their fall collection of handbags was released on their site last week, and as you might expect, they delivered once again.


 
What makes these bags so great is that they are all practical and versatile, featuring clean lines and of-the-moment designs in all different shapes and sizes.

A majority of the bags in the fall collection are black or have black accents, keeping with the fall handbag trends, but there are a few bags that have an unexpected pop of color, which I LOVE.

Checkout my picks from the Shoemint Fall Handbag Collection below, and be sure to check out the whole collection here (and what’s left of their summer collection!)

Bag 1: Scuba Satchel (Black/Green)

Bag 2: Camera Shoulder Bag (Taupe/Avocado)

Bag 3: Fold-Over Clutch


I have been looking for the perfect black clutch for so long (I have a weirdly picky peculiarity about clutches) and I think this just might be it. It is classic and simple, yet the fringe zipper detail adds an edge. Plus, it appears to be big enough to fit all of my necessities with room to spare.

Which Shoemint Fall handbag is your favorite?

Making Moves!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to She Wore Embellishments, a fashion and style blog by yours truly.  Some of you may have read my former blog, Style Me Trendy, but I knew that in order to establish myself as a fashion blogger I had to transfer over to my own domain and take the plunge to invest in a blog with its own name.  Enter She Wore Embellishments.

I am very excited that I now have my own independent site.  I was very nervous at first to spend all the money on the hosting site, the layout, etc. but now that I have done all that, I can definitely see the difference.  I have so much freedom, and I essentially get to make all the decisions for my blog!  Which is exactly what fashion blogging, or any blog for that matter, is all about.  Developing yourself, and your own independent brand.  Everyone who has a blog is their own CEO.

With all of this being said, it is time for me to get cracking on some posts.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read.  Hope you visit again soon!
