LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

It’s October and I’m ready for all the fall things! Despite summer being the “lazy” season, I feel more comfortable in the fall. The weather is cooler and the weekends feel way more casual and relaxing. I definitely hit my stride in the fall.

This month, I’m into neutral tones, interesting designs, and simple silhouettes. So, keep reading to see what I’m wanting this month. Plus, this is the last month, before it’s no longer about what we want. *insert jingle bells*

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

  • Pattern Beauty On-the-Go-Kit – I’m so mad at myself that I still haven’t tried anything from Tracee Ellis Ross’ Pattern Beauty. I’ve been stalking their travel kit for weeks – on their site and Ulta.com. It’s sold out at all the Ulta’s in my area and I’m on all the waiting lists.
  • Pearl Hoop Earrings – Hoop earrings are my daily jewelry jam. Although they can be worn with anything, they can be a little too casual. These hoops with pearls all over add a subtle elegance to any look.
  • Snakeskin Print Sneakers – I’ve been wanting some casual, but fun looking sneakers. These sneakers from Steve Madden are just the sneakers I need for fall.
  • Nude Crossbody Chain Wallet – I need to downsize my daily purse again, which is mostly filled with things I don’t use. I’ve never used a chain wallet as a daily bag, but I could. I was able to use a super small purse everyday for months. So, this may be light work.
  • Long Sleeve V-Neck Plus Size Printed Mini Dress – For real, I need all the cute, printed flowing dresses for fall. Plus, I prefer if they are above the knee and in a fall color. I’m so into this dress from Target. It fits perfectly into my ideal look for fall.

eSTYLIST: Fall Style for 2019

Every year, I look forward to fall, because the weather warms up, it’s the soft opening of the holiday season, and my birthday. Another thing that I love is all of the fall style for 2019 options and even the weather has cooled down. So, I’ve been scouting cute sweaters, dresses, and pinning all the boots I can find. For fall, I think I’m going for a dresses and boots this season, but with a super casual feel.

  • Mini Gold Bar Earrings – Little known fact about me – I’ve had a second ear piercing since I was in the 4th grade. However, it’s been a while since I’ve worn any earrings in them and I’ve thought about letting them close up. Now, I’ve changed my mind and decided that I want to keep them open to wear cute, little gold earrings in them. This tiny gold bars would look super cute and chic in secondary ear piercings. I’m getting them.
  • Long Sleeve Printed Smock Dress – Dresses have been my jam for the last few falls, which includes printed dresses. I’m swooning for this smock dress from ASOS and it looks cute and comfy – my clothes love language.
  • Patent Leather Lug Sole Booties – The one boot style I’ve been loving recently is lug sole booties. I was having the hardest time finding a pair that didn’t cost a whole paycheck. Plus, they it was hard finding a pair that didn’t have a super high heel. Spotted these on Nordstrom and I’m confident that I’m going to buy them the next time I get paid.
  • Pebble Leather Flap Crossbody – Loving the structured feel of this crossbody. Plus, the pebbled leather texture is perfect to wear everyday, which I would do.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Scar Cream for your Face | STAINED COUTURE

A couple of weeks ago, my skin went to Pimple Fest Summer 2019. I had every type of pimple, including cystic. So, I used a simple skincare routine of oil-free foaming face wash and gentle face toner. However, there was one product that helped my skin in more ways than one and that was Good Skin Corrective Scar Cream.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 13, 2019

Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 13, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday – Friday the 13th! When I was child, this day used to scare me – based solely off the movie. Oh, and the urban myths. LOL at the times I avoided stepping on a crack while walking to school. As an adult, Friday the 13th involves be laying in bed watching Friday the 13th movie while drinking wine. It’s definitely a vibe.

Tomorrow, I plan to stay at home all morning to do some deep cleaning; hair and home. Also, most Saturdays, I go to my sister house in the morning – I bring breakfast and we catch up on Big Brother. However, this weekend is Southern Heritage Classic, which causes the traffic to be an absolute headache – ALL DAY! So, I already told her not to expect to see me. *Kanye Shrug*

Not to mention, it’s too hot to be outside for long, which is why I’m not going to the Cooper-Young Festival. I really wanted to go, but again there’s horrible traffic. Bad traffic is an automatic cancel for me – most of the time.

Although I plan to have a lazy weekend, I hope you all have an enjoyable one, too. Also, I hope you enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up, too.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 6, 2019

Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.

Happy Friday, friends!

So, am I the only one that feels like this didn’t feel like a short week? Since I had a long and busy holiday weekend, I was so exhausted when I went to work on Tuesday. Plus, I was welcomed back with over 3,000 emails – most were spam. Nonetheless, I’m so happy to see Friday again. Yes, Lord!

I’m craving a weekend in with no plans, but this ain’t the weekend. Tomorrow afternoon, I have a meeting then church that evening. Sunday, church in the morning and a baby shower in the afternoon. So, another long, but fulfilling weekend.

Oh, I forgot to acknowledge that it’s September – one of my favorite months. September brings my birthday, my nephew’s (1st) birthday, and the beginning of Fall. Although summer heat isn’t letting up, I’m still ready for fall. *whispers*I’ve even had some pumpkin spice pumps in my iced coffee. Shhh.

Not to mention, I’m so ready to start adding some fall vibes to my living space. However, I’ll wait to break out the fall colors and pumpkin smells until the weather cools down. I can’t enjoy fall smells while wiping sweat off my upper lip.

In the meantime, I hope you check out some of my favorite things I read online this week.
