Summertime Style: ChicNova Haul & Review

Hello Pigment Pals! Are you enjoying your summer so far? I certainly am. I don't know about where you are but here it's been absolutely sweltering hot these past few weeks so I've been staying cool indoors when I can and passing the time with a little online shopping. I just got three new pieces from ChicNova that I've been dying to share with you guys.

I'm not the most stylish girl in the world at times (seriously, I have an addiction when it comes to tacky things with leopard print, rainbow colors and/or sequins)  but I'm really proud of this chic, sophisticated outfit and so I've been eager to post pictures of it and share with you what I got to piece it together.

Yeah, all of that for just under $50.00. Cause if there's anything I love more than looking cute, it's saving money and getting sweet clothes for a good price. If you want to see more pictures or info on any of these items, you can check them out at ChicNova's site:

Now on to more pictures and some short thoughts on each separate piece of clothing. Behold:

This skirt has the most interesting bevelled texture to it which catches the light at every angle, thanks to the metallic material it's made of. The best part though, in my opinion is that the stiff material gives the skirt a beautiful bell shape that flares at the waist and flatters the figure by making everything underneath it seem proportionally much smaller. Great for pear shaped ladies like myself. Plus it sits at the natural waist which elongates the legs AND! If that wasn't enough, it only touches you at the waist which means this skirt is absolutely ideal for summer when you don't want any clothing sticking to your hot, sweaty body.

The one downside to the skirt is it's one-size-fits-all elastic waistband which is so not the look. Nothing takes your style down a notch than a pre-school style elastic waistband, amirite? This super chic gold plated belt covers it up beautifully and adds a modern, grown up appeal to the garment. The gold plate wraps halfway around the waist and then turns into a stretchy red band that fits snugly and stays in place. At the back it has a pretty gold clasp which is so much nicer than snaps or velcro that similar belts often use.

I also got this peacock tail inspired necklace to fit under the lapels of my blouse. The gold ties in nicely with the skirt obviously, but the gems add a colorful flare that I think the outfit really benefits from. Plus, having all those different colored gems means you can wear this necklace with just about anything. I don't know about you, but this girl l.o.v.e.s. versatility.

I really love this and I absolutely cannot wait to wear this again. I definitely hope you'll check out ChicNova as you guys get ready for back-to-school fall wardrobe shopping, or even just to spruce up your closet with some cute new pieces. See you guys soon!
