If you know me in "the real world" you'll almost never see me in earrings, but lately I've hopped on the bandwagon and picked up some fabulous pieces. I don't know what it is about gold accessories but they make me feel powerful and like I've got all the $$$--so of course I couldn't resist those gold dollar signs.
Super pumped about this pink polish on my nails, too.  Pink polish is just about as hard to get right as pink lipstick, so picking up this cheap Wet n' Wild for 99 cents saved me from too much risky business and ended up being a dollar well spent.

A new combination of mostly old things, the battle with hair that desperately needs a trim, and bejeweled nails courtesy my grandma

Nails: my grandma bought me these nail rhinestones last christmas (maybe more than one Christmas ago, I can't remember, I just thank the lord she finally stopped giving me ugly toe socks). Anyway, I'm sure you can pick up some similar small stones at your local craft supply store.  

The trick is to wait up until the point your nail polish is still kind of tacky to put them on (you know, usually when you think you've waited long enough to do things and then make a mess of them). Then shellac the heck out of them with at least 2 layers of clear topcoat. Granted it didn't last more than 3 days on my grubby little paws, but yours will surely survive a little longer!

Blouse: Primark (of course a few buttons are loose..)
Skirt: Forever 21 (currently in stores!)
Boots: Kohls (for dirt cheap--I almost went back and bought a second pair)
