Not So Plain Jane

I’m so happy to be able to feature my very own sister and style role model for this edition of

Who What Wear Wednesday!

As I’ve said before, Jane has definitely taught me everything I know about shopping on a dime…or a penny.  Not to mention, she has the BEST style out of everyone I know. You think I’m exaggerating? Think again.

You know those people who are always dressed perfectly for the occasion, when you stress out about what to wear for AGES and you’re still not confident about your outfit? Yeah, well. Jane is that girl who is wearing the best outfit in the room…I’m the stressed one. Let’s just say, I never complained about getting her hand-me-downs when we were younger.

So, when I was home last, I went to lunch with her and I couldn’t NOT take a mini photoshoot of her Sunday afternoon look.

(She was recovering from a friend’s wedding, so she wouldn’t let me get her whole body, even though she was wearing her ADORABLE Ray-Ban eyeglasses.)

Cardigan: H&M (similar); Scarf: Target (similar options here and here; Jeans: Urban Outfitters (similar here and on sale here; Purse: Zara (unavailable); Sandals: Urban Outfitters

Doesn’t she make it look so effortless?

Now you can understand where I learned how to mix my timeless pieces  (like Jane’s Alexis Bittar Bangle and simple gold necklace from our mom) with a Target scarf and make it look like a J.Crew ensemble.

Don’t forget to keep up with my #OOTD on Instagram (or Webstagram)! @emmafakesit

Oh what a weekend….

Image

From birthday party shenanigans, to happy hour with best friends, to a day party of fanny packs and waterslides, it was definitely a fun-filled weekend. Here’s a little glimpse at it all in pictures….

I’m obsessing over easy maxi dresses with a contrasting accessory, and these colors are TO DIE! 

Image

I can’t ever get enough of an easy top with white jeans and my gold sandals from Old Navy…oh, and my Forever21 clutch. The perfect combination for happy hour!

Image

Okay so maybe not my best look, but I had to show ya’ll my Saturday outfit. Don’t ya think it’s fanny pack-tastic? I’m never opposed to bringing back a 90s staple. I forgot how convenient these suckers are!

And what do you think my week has in store for me?

Well, other than this….

Image

I’m gonna make some time for a little bit of DIY too…

Image

I may or may not have gone a little crazy in the fabrics section of Hobby Lobby. Who can’t pass up cheap swatches?! (Pinterest has created a monster, ladies and gentlemen.)

Happy Sunday!

Image

I’ll tell you what I want…what I really REALLY want

……an Hermes Birkin bag!

Image

But who doesn’t? This might sound overly typical, and frankly, I’m not ashamed of that. One day, when I am hugely successful and I want to reward myself, I will get my very own Birkin.

(fingers crossed…yes, I dream big)

Until then, I’m fakin it.

So my boss and her sisters recently went to England to visit family (which just so happens to be the BF’s family). Luckily, they brought me back an amazing present! Honestly, I would’ve been pleased with a keychain saying “I love London” but that’s just because I’m a touristy loser and I love the little things in life. Of course, I was blown away by what they actually gave me.

I’ll start with the bag. Feast your eyes, ladies and gents.

Image

She’s a beaut, isn’t she?

Image

That’s a pretty darn good Birkin lookalike, don’t ya think? Gosh, I love her.

One thing you should know about me is when I really love something, I can’t stop looking at it. I always have to have that something in my peripheral vision, on my person, or in my presence. Needless to say, I immediately put my stuff in this bag and it hasn’t been empty since.

Thanks to the Atlanta Activewear girls and my fabulous bag…I’m another step closer to being just like the fashionable Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham.

Image

Do you see the resemblance?? Maybe squint a little (tehehe).

 A real Birkin is what I want…what I really really want.

But I’m feelin’ really really good with what I got for now.

There will be more blog posts about my presents from England to come soon! So stay tuned my friends.

I’ll be sure to Instagram a pic of my outfit later! I’ll totally be wearing the bag. Follow me @ emmafakesit and look for my #OOTD.

Happy 4th!
