Lusting for Leopard-Fall Must-Haves!

Anyone else lusting over leopard this season??? I will admit I never have been the biggest fan of the print. To me it always screamed Cheap, Jersey Housewife or Snooki. All 3 things I never quite wanted to look like or be what defined my style, so I stirred clear....until now. I am all over these leopard accent pieces and are all I want this year, check out my top picks dolls. Let me know which ones your feeling the most or what Fall items your lusting over lately!
Fall Must Have's-Leopard

Fall Must Have's-Leopard by missdiamond featuring leopard print scarves

1. Every now and then there comes a shoes that literally makes you want to spend your rent money or consider selling a kidney just to add them to your shoe family...Am I right or wrong my fellow Shoe Freaks??Anybody? No? Just Me? Well this season for me that shoe is the Giambattista Valli leopard platforms that makes me want to do just that! *sigh* Spotted at $797 I really need to grab these before their gone!

2. This Lara Bohinc leopard scarf will add a pop of style and fierceness to any outfit.

3. This Eugenia Kim Muffy Leopard print cap is so gorge and classic. I don't usually wear hats, my weave likes to breath, but this beauty can find a home in my wardrobe anyday!

4. These Agent Provocateur leopard print calf hair driving gloves immediately sent me into character when I spotted them. I envisioned myself riding in a drop top 1960 convertible with huge Jackio O shades on and a scarf wrapped around my head...very Audrey Hepburn moment. It was EPIC, I must have them to complete that fantasy....or something like 'em at least!



5. A leopard purse is a great addition to my collection, not much of a bag girl, although I yearn to be. I get my happiness from my shoes....clearly. But this Jerome Dreyfuss Carlito bag is calling my name. I found one kinda like it at Target the other day! Can't wait to rock it!

6. These Steve Madden 'Madee' slip ons will serve as a Fall "neutral" flat in my wardrobe this Fall. So cute and I can already think of so many great things to pair them with in my closet right now.....that is when I'm able to peel those Giambattista's off my pretty lil feet!

7. Another perfect subtle touch of leopard can be found in this leopard pony skin belt....I found mine at Target on sale for 5.98!

 After serving my country proudly I moved to NYC to pursue my dream of working in the fashion industry and obtaining my B.A. in Fashion Marketing. “
“I have a fresh and unique perspective on fashion thru the eyes of an Iraq veteran that has seen fashion from all over the world.”

” I would like to submit my blog to be featured on your site in hopes of expanding my new favorite hobby and current OBSESSION….blogging!”

 I currently reside in Shreveport, LA where I try to bring style and sass to my new home, however, I am originally from Jersey.”

I’m just an ordinary Jersey gal destined for extraordinary things!”

“I heart all things Fashion, Beauty, Family, Food, Jesus and LIFE. I am a lover of all things opulent, fabulous and gorgeous!”

 Bottom line if it’s bright, glitters, sparkles or shines…..I’M OBSESSED! My style can be best described as a mix of Girlie Glam and Combat Chic.”

Naja's Fall Lust List

Naja's Fall Lust List


1. Fall for me is nesting season....the weather is getting colder so you spend more time inside. Also, gives me a chance to focus my money on interior decorating. For me it was LOVE at first sight when I first spotted the Missoni for Target Home Collection. I have been lusting after the dinner plate set thinking of the dinner dates and parties I will be inspired to host because of them. 


2. After the FIRE 6 months ago I have been focusing on replacing the essentials and of course my closet so I will be the first to admit my bedroom is in need of some serious attention. I am ashamed to admit to you guys I still have sheets on my windows as curtains.....UNACCEPTABLE! I feel the bold patterns and vibrant colors of this bedding set is a perfect match for my style. Like I said LOVE at first sight! 


3.4. I love, love, love the idea of high-end designers collaborating with mass market more budget friendly retailers to expand their brand awareness with consumers. What a great idea marketing strategy! These two killer pairs from the B Brian Atwood collection are a steal at $350 a pop compared to the designers usual $850+ price tags. Lusting to wear these with opaque tights or super fun socks!


5. This Alice and Olivia fur collar sweater stopped me dead in my tracks when I spotted it. How luxe and gorge is that collar! I found a similar, budget friendly collar at H&M that is removable and will find a lovely home on my new fav sweaters this season....can't wait!


6. Loving these nail polishes by Chanel. I think I have a weakness for nail polishes, I just keep buying them.....ugggh, Chanel made me do it!


7. This purple plateramic watch has been on my Lust List for a very looooooong time! One day it will be mine....one day. *deep sigh*
Hope you guys enjoyed this post, I have more Fall must-haves coming soon. Just so many great trends and comeback classics this season got me gitty for fashion right now! Love this feeling! 

xoxo,
Naja


P.S. OMG I almost forgot to share with you guys my first feature at iam.fashizblack.com, an online French African fashion magazine, check me out HERE!! I am so honored and humbled to be recognized for my style. I would so appreciate it if you Diamond Dolls would LIKE, COMMENT and SHARE away!!

Missoni for Target: Office Outfit of the Day

Last week I managed to scrounge through the debris of the scraps left after Missoni revealed their new line for Target. My neighborhood Target sold out by 5 o'clock, but not before I grabbed just a few pieces. I paired this gorgeous blouse with grey slacks and black pumps for a nice office look. This blouse is perfect for adding color and patterns to my fall wardrobe, can't wait to remix this piece from day to night, edgy to 70's chic!

Blouse: Missoni for Target
Pants: Ann Taylor Loft

Suited and Booted!

Hey Dolls,
So as you know, I am not one to straw away from bright colors and love me a suit! When I found this suit cruising mom's closet I was more than happy to take it off her hands. This beautiful coral suit was brand new, never worn and a dream color. I decided to wear it to work this week and it had me feelin very 70's John Travolta circa Saturday Night Fever....had me feelin FUNKY! I still think it could use a trip to the tailor but off duty I can't wait to pair this suit with some fab accessories and really step it up a bit.








The FIT:
Coral Suit: Vintage
Shoes: Steve Madden
Necklace: Vintage
Shades: Micheal Kors
Watch: Fossil

 Check out some ladies that can rock a bright colored suit like no other!

Hot + Pink=LOVE

So you might remember this hot PINK number scored from mom's closet mentioned HERE in a previous post. Well I decided to chop a few inches off and convert it into a mini. Great way to refurbish the dress to fit my personal style. I personally love my legs and never have a problem showing them off so that was not a problem. Wore this hot pink combo to my uncles wedding last week. So great to see my family and meet the new addition to our clan. Welcome Natalie, we LOVE you!!
