Cat Eyes

Jacket & Sweater: Forever 21   Bag: c/o Oasap   Jeans: AE   Heels: thrifted   Sunnies: c/o Wholesale Celebshades   Crystal Necklace: c/o Shop Lately
(Oh helloooo winter pedicure...)
It's usually difficult for me to find good sunglasses with a fun frame that also suit my face, but I got lucky with these dramatic cat eye shades from Wholesale Celebshades! These beauties are the Lena Round Cat Eye Sunglasses, and I'm absolutely loving the retro-glam vibe they emanate.

 I decided to go with a simple yet luxe outfit to complete my look inspired by these sunnies. It's all in the accessories! And I've found a unique one to add to my arsenal - introducing my Amethyst Divine Drop crystal necklace from Shop Lately. Do any of you ladies know about crystology? One of my friends (I like to refer to her as my Witch Doctor) knows a bit about them and is into that kind of treatment, along with all the herbs, natural remedies, and New Age hippie trends. Now I'm not too certain of all of those things myself, although I'm often intrigued by them and can kind of go along with the theories and philosophies of some. Besides that, I've been getting more and more into Yoga, so a lot of those trends filter into the thinking that goes along with Yoga.

When I came across this necklace, I was drawn to it because amethyst is actually my birthstone. Then I read the description of the crystal benefits that come with it: "This gemstone has a sobering effect on overindulgence and overcomes addictions. Beneficial to the mind, it calms or stimulates as appropriate, helping to feel more focused. It also enhances memory and improves motivation as well as balancing emotional highs and lows."

I've just been thinking that I need to quit my shopaholic ways, so maybe this little necklace will help. Might as well start it off with a challenging  test! ;)

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

Love the sunnies. Aren't your feet freezing??? hahaha

Omigosh Linda, that necklace is so fetching! And especially the little description alongside it. Hehe, I'm absolutely enamored by crystals and their supposed mystical powers. I've got a fluorite one myself that I used to wear all the time. *___*

And I really love how up top, you're rockin' the cream! That jacket is pretty snazzy as well. You always dress so COOOOOOL. Like a rockstar--that is the way of Miss Linda. :) <3

Kati said...

Thanks for leaving such a darling comment on my blog!
This shape really suits you! I wish we had sun here at the moment so I could actually wear sunglasses... :-)

Have a great day,

Ashley Taylor said...

That bag though!! Love it.

And its cool to end the blog with verse :D

That's such a lovely necklace. I'm always intrigued by all the stuff not backed by Science. Somehow, all it takes is the belief. You look great, backdrop looks great. Ooh... is it not as cold where you are? I don't see snow and I don't see you in thick coats and boots.

Mica T said...

Love the white jacket on you, especially when paired with the red bag! :)

Hope you're having a good weekend - and enjoying the warmer weather if you're wearing sandals again :)

Great look dear and funny pictures!
Have a wonderful weeeeeeekend :)


Lily Fang said...

Ah, so much to comment on Linda! First, I'm super excited for you and your concert. I love that you shared some of their lesser well known songs with us.

Second, Props to you for taking a more public place for a photoshoot! I'm still working on my self-consciousness in photoshoots too haha. Gotta practice for college! Who's that crazy girl taking pictures of herself again? Haha

Third, it's alright to have a calm life every once in awhile. We all go through periods where we feel like we don't have much to write about. You inspire me with your writing, and always will, regardless of what you say. Besides, we're all human and can't always have exciting happenings. We'd be completely drained!

Fourth, as for your art, dang! I'm completely enamored by the last work and I really admire your courage to pursue art. You definitely know what you want in life, and that is so inspiring.

Finally, I love this glam look! That first shot is amazing! And that necklace sounds like it does wonders (: Keep rocking it, girl!

Have a great weekend!

Jodie said...

Amazing sunglasses-they suit yiur face perfectly. I've been drawn to cat eyed glasses lately too:)
I don't know much about crystals but I am currently wearing moonshine plugs in my ears for a bit of luck.
Love your art- I agree with your tutor I love your high contrast style

Tieka, Selective Potential said...

Adorable outfit! I really like that necklace! xo

Maiken said...

those sunnies indeed fit you like a glove ;) and I like the cream shades you're wearing here. very pretty. but I don't know much about the stones... I have some that are pendants but I don't remember their names any more :P it's an interesting topic though and definitely worth learning!

You are so cute, little lady. I love your little smirky pose.

As usual, your outfit is on-point when relating to your accessories. I love how you let the glasses and your necklace take center stage! It's very chic and sheek. Love!

I love that you've been doing yoga! I have long been using it with the kiddos at work to calm their bodies, and recently started getting into it myself. I went to my first Fitness Yoga class last week -- whew! what a workout. I was sore for a few days after. And I don't get sore.

I hate when life forces me to take a break from blogging and stuff, because then I miss all the amazing stuff you do. Of course I'm referring to your post about your art. As a dabbler in the arts myself, I have some advice for you; keep at it and never be ashamed. You are vastly talented, girly. Just keep studying and keep creating and above all, keep expressing yourself! You can never go wrong with that.

I need a necklace like this too!!:D I haven't spend much these past few moths because money was tight for me, but that doesn't mean I didn't want to. And want to BAD.:) I need something to nip my want to overindulge in the bud... And great sunglasses and that first shot, babe, cool editing!;)

Mouna said...

adorable sunnies! what a great find :) They are so cute and I love cat eyes!

Sarah P said...

Your glasses really suit you. I never wear sunglasses because every pair seems to make me look bug eyed!

I don't know anything about crystology, and even though I probably wouldn't practise it myself, I would be interested in finding out more about it :). xo

Crystology actually sounds pretty cool! I know that my culture has some of those other remedies woven into it too, so I' a semi-believer. Sometimes, though, I get a bit skeptical.
Love your outfit! The crystal necklace fits perfectly into your outfit.
Thanks for dropping by at our blog and leaving your sweet comments :)


Samantha said...

Okay, Linda, where is your snow?! Do you want some of ours? :) I am one envious duck over here!

You look gorgeous though, lady! That white jacket looks AMAZING on you and I love the shade of your bag (a lovely deep red). That necklace is precious too. I'm not sure if I believe in stones or gems and their powers, but I do like to wear onyx because they say it traps negative thoughts and feelings. Thought I could use a bit of that! Hah

Have a great day, Linda!

Hélène Heath said...

That jacket is stellar - and will look fab with your new scarf!

Congrats again on the win!

Plami said...

I can see your style evolving with every outfit! You look stunning dear! And the glasses you found are treasures indeed :)


Toks said...

So glad you like the booties Linda, they're from Zara. They might be in the sales now.

Avi said...

Minimalist is always a good choice. The sunglasses are very cool. My favorite kind of sunglasses are the Cat Eyes :D


Marlen said...

haha if that little necklace cures those shopohalic ways you let me know- i'll buy 5 ;) and those cat eye sunnies are SO cute- I always think they complete an outfit :)
