Giveaway! Purple & Lime Pom Pom Necklace

Let's be honest- nothing says "I'm a little bit cray cray and I'm here to par-tay" quite like wearing pom poms on your person.  I recently discovered Purple and Lime on Etsy and when I saw their crazy red pom pom necklace, I HAD to have it!  I wear it with my turquoise coat every chance I get (see the combo here!)  Now you have the chance to win one for yourself, but I have to warn you...If you don't like attention, this is not the necklace for you!

Here's how to win:
1. Like  Fashion Tweaker & Purple and Lime on Facebook
2. Leave a comment below telling us how you'd wear this statement of a statement necklace!

UPDATE: Congratulations to Alisa M. for being the winner of this giveaway!

Fashion Tweak: Just Belt It!

Last year after I had my baby, I was desperate to go shopping for some fun, bright and sexy clothes. Because I was still losing the baby weight, I didn't want to spend lots of money so I went somewhere I usually try to avoid at all costs...Forever 21 (cue the screaming babies and obscenely loud music!) Turns out it was worth the torture because I found this fabulous hot pink lace skirt.  Unfortunately when I tried it on at home there was something frumpy about it. I realized that it was the elastic waistband (never a good look) and I immediately "tweaked" it by covering the elastic with a gold sequined belt. Muuuuuuuch better!

5 Ways to Wear Red Pants

I love red things: maraschino cherries, big ass rubies, an ice-cold can of Coke in the fridge, and my new red pants! I've been wanting some for awhile now, so I recently bought a pair of J. Crew's corduroy toothpicks in Moroccan Red.  Surprisingly the red pant possibilities seem to be endless! Here are some ideas to get you out of those boring old blue jeans and into some red hot action!!! Just in time for Valentine's Day!

Style Inspiration: Mobutu

Today's style inspiration comes from Joseph-DesirĂ© Mobutu, former dictator of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (which he renamed Zaire).  Let's put aside the fact that he amassed a $5 billion personal fortune through economic exploitation and corruption, this whack job prohibited anybody else in the country from wearing leopard-print hats.  Say what??? And I thought I had a big ego! When I bought this Nicholas leopard dress I thought of Mobutu, so I whipped up a hat (more like a turban, really) for a little leopard on leopard on leopard action! 

Dress: Nicholas  //  Necklaces: J. Crew & J. Crew  //  Shoes: Kate Spade (these are cute too!)  
//  Scarf (worn as a turban): Nordstrom  //  Sunglasses: BCBG
