Keek’s – Buy + Sell Designer Handbags 1

Keeks store dallas

I am so excited to share with you all the newest (used) handbag boutique in Dallas!  One of my sweet friends, Kristen Donnell, created Keek’s after spending several years at Goldman Sachs as an analyst.  Keek’s is a boutique in North Dallas that buys and sells designer handbags.  They have everything including Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Coach, Tory Burch, Chanel, etc.  Basically it’s the Neiman Marcus handbag department with permanent sale prices… yes please!

Kristen has a very impressive authentication process, so they never buy or sell anything that is fake- ever!  In the off chance that a fake slips by and you purchase it, they will refund 100% of the purchase price and give you a 25% store credit too.  Talk about standing behind your item, right?!   Keek’s is very determined to sell a good product at a good price for everyone who wants that designer bag, but not the designer price tag!   Also, if you have handbags that you no longer want, they will typically purchase it for 40-50% of the retail price or even more if you want store credit.  I hope everyone can visit the Keek’s on Preston Road and find that perfect bag you’ve been coveting!

Be sure to follow them here and here to see new handbags daily.  Check out Kristen’s debut on CBS news to learn even more about Keek’s!

Stealing the Sister Style 3

Ellen Flowers

Though my style is mainly influenced by bold or edgy pieces, occasionally I find myself channeling the styles of Blair and Janie by adding a little Lilly into my look. Since jumpsuits are my favorite (see here, here, or here), this Lilly jumpsuit made it’s way home with me from my last visit to Barefoot Princess in Watercolor, FL. I love the bold print on this piece, and of course the insanely comfortable silhouette! See how I styled mine and check out my other jumpsuit picks below:  Preppy Jumpsuit Gold Statement Necklace Lilly Pulitzer Jumpsuit Lilly Pulitzer Blue and White Jumpsuit Lilly Pulitzer Romper

Vibrant & Bright 1

Janie FlowersBright colors and patterns are what I gravitate towards when shopping, so of course this yellow printed Lilly Pulitzer tank found its way into my closet this summer. Yellow is such a fun and happy color, so what better way to start my day off with positive vibes than with this vibrant preppy tank I found this summer at Barefoot Princess! I paired this top with my favorite lace Lilly shorts, which have become such an easy and feminine alternative to my classic J Crew shorts. See how I styled my Lilly look and shop the links below to steal my style!

The Canadian Tuxedo 1

J Crew Denim Shirt

With denim being one of the top trends of 2014, the Canadian Tuxedo is of course my favorite look for a casual weekend afternoon. Though denim on denim was once a huge fashion faux pas, this duo is now one of the easiest ways to look chic and relaxed with minimal effort. I like to pair varying shades of denim to allow more depth to the look, so I wore my light chambray J Crew blouse with my ultra-soft dark Paige flares and tossed on a favorite Gucci belt to break up the hues. See how I styled my denim on denim look below and be sure to try out this double denim combo for yourself!

Must-Have Hair Ties 3




One of my worst (yet most convenient) habits is to keep a ponytail holder around my wrist. It has gotten to the point where I feel naked without one, but sometimes I forget how much better my outfit would look without an ugly black elastic band wrapped around my wrist. Emi-Jay took the world by storm when they introduced their wrap-tie elastics, and though these feel amazing, my newest obsession is definitely By Lilla!

By Lilla has created a line of hair ties that can also be disguised as jewelry – function & fashion! With pieces such as leather wrapped bands, leather bows with spikes (a favorite), chain headbands that double as necklaces, By Lilla caters to the practical needs of the everyday fashion-forward woman! We had so much fun visiting the brand’s showroom at market and left with so many amazing goodies! Take a look at some of our favorite products and click here to shop the collection!
