Love-E Boutique's next PUBLIC TRUNK SHOW - Finally Scheduled!!!
More info will be coming your way as soon as it becomes available!
I told you I'd get lost for a while...it happens! Weddings is the word of the year! Jesus Christ!! I love weddings, I really do, but when you're in em, they're stressful! One down, and one to go...I cant wait till its all over and there is nothing but pictures left!
Anyway, while looking through countless celebrity outfits, to pick just one to share with you guys, I found...none!! I did however find that Lauren Conrad is obsessed with these darn shoes! She wears them with virtually everything (at least you know shes getting her moneys worth). So, I collected a bunch of pictures and put together a little collage for you guys. I found Laurens actual shoes, although there is a slight variation on the front platform (sometimes done by designers, they make their large scale public distribution slightly different from their runway collection), so I'm sharing them with you guys in case you're interested. I have also looked around to find the closest, more affordable, options for you guys. Call it boredom, or full dedication to my fellow blog followers, but here it is. Enjoy!

Anyway, seems like the only celebrity that is dressing decently lately is Lauren Conrad. Her outfit in the following pictures is absolutely gorgeous! Everything about it, I Love. I also like how she added tan accessories to her outfit. It gives it a bit of a twist; and may I say that her bag is beyond phenomenal too. I carry a similar bag at the store. It is one of our latest fall handbags and is very close in color and shape to this bag pictured here. It also falls just the same when you carry it on your arm. I will post a picture of the bag, so that you guys can see it. Anyway, her look is perfect for work, a date, dinner with friends, anything really, its very versatile. Also, if you notice, she is wearing the same shoes that she wore on my last blog post about her. That's what's so great about a neutral shoe, it can be the finishing touch to an endless array of wardrobe choices.
Here is the bag that I carry in the store. It may not look it in this picture (which is why I will be taking some better pictures very soon), but it is extremely similar to Laurens bag. From the color, to the shape, to the size, to how it falls when on your arm, this bag is pretty darn close for fractions of the cost!
If you're interested in the above bag, please feel free to send me an email: Jenn@Love-EBoutique.com. The bag is also available in Navy and Red. :)

This is by far my favorite piece in the line, and probably its signature piece, since its the one that you see everywhere. It is $125.00
These bangles are also really cute and retail for $75 each. and hey, if you weight 90 lbs, you can really get your moneys worth and wear them as armbands also (as seen above).
These bangles, which come in silver, gold, and rose gold, look really pretty when worn in bunches, like Nicole in the following picture. They are $55 each.
Here is the headband/crown thing I was talking about earlier, now don't get me wrong, I LOVE IT, heck, I wish I had lighter hair and I'd wear it for sure, but I think if I wore this against my dark dark dark brown hair, I'd look like a freak....or Cleopatra. But for those of you who have lighter hair, or those of you who don't care and want it anyway, you can get the single strand for $195, or get the seven strand one for $455. And here are some other stuff from the collection that can all be seen on the above mentioned website..
So yeah, that's all for now on House of Harlow, If you guys have anything from them, or are looking to buy something, feel free to share it with us!

Hope you're all doing well. Just coming by to update you on a couple things.
1. I just ordered the new fall handbags. They are soo pretty and so classy, which I love! The colors aren't as bright as they were for Spring (obviously)..but they still maintain their fun feel. Blues, Golds, Muted Pinks, Grey, and Navy Blue are just some of the colors that are coming for fall as far as handbags are concerned, so stay tuned for pictures as soon as I receive the shipment.
2. Love-E Boutique is partnering up with a local jewelry designer from Miami that makes her own handmade jewelry, and let me tell you, her pieces are absolutely gorgeous. She has anything you can want in jewelry, from something delicate and girly, to something bold and fun, you will not be let down when you see her stuff. Necklaces, Rings, Bracelets, and Earrings, shes got it all. I will be debuting her line at a private trunk show that I have in July, and once I get pictures of all her pieces, I will be putting them on the website for you guys to preview, and see at our next Public Event (which is tentatively scheduled for either August 1, or August 29th...I will let you know as soon as I make that decision). Also, once I get the pieces, I will write a more detailed blog about them, but till now...stay tuned for more.
3. Our private trunk shows are becoming a huge success, I already have two scheduled for July, and one scheduled for August, plus one with no set date yet. We are going to be very busy, but I noticed that I am skipping a Public Trunk Show for the month of July due to scheduling private ones. I have now scheduled tentative dates for Public Trunk Shows through the 2009 year, to avoid skipping months. I will post the dates for the Public Trunk Shows on here a month in advance, so as mentioned before, the August public Love-E Boutique Trunk Show is either going to be August 1, or August 29th. I will let you know for sure within 2 weeks.
4. I am going to start writing a weekly blog about celebrity trends/fashion. Its not going to have much of a format, just pictures of outfits that I like, or trends that I'm noticing. I was going to do the first one today, but the celebs have been slacking on me, and I have not seen any outfits that I really LOVE other than ONE that I found from Lauren Conrad.
I know that the dress is very safe and kind of simple, but I think that's what I like about it. I like it when a girl dresses girly, and this dress is just that. I like that she added a belt and defined the waistline and that she paired it with a strappy brown sandal. This is a very simple and easy to do look, and it looks classic and classy. I think she looks gorgeous.
But yeah, that pretty much the only outfit that I found blog worthy. I am going to start my search again on Monday for next weeks Celebrity Fashion Blog, hopefully I'll have more luck.
So yeah, that's pretty much it for right now. If there is anything that I left out, I will add it to the next post. So for now, have a fantastic 4th of July weekend...Have fun, and be Safe!!
God Bless America!! :)

I am so relieved that I have a little break! As I've mentioned before, it is a lot of work to put one of these things together. Just packing and unpacking is quite the work out. However, as each one comes and goes, me and Eric get better and better at arranging the stuff in the car, and at home. Just after finishing a process that used to take us about 45 minutes to unpack and store everything, Eric said, "I have gotten so good at this, its like a system...I am a Trunk Show Roadie!". He's soo cute! lol But we can pretty much get everything in the car and packed up back at the house within 10-15 minutes now. Not too bad! Still, exhausting though.
Anyway on our Sunday after the Trunk Show, we took a day to ourselves. Just the two of us. Although we live together and are pretty much together all the time, these weekends apart because of my trunk shows really made me miss him (even though I was with him on all other days). I really cherish our weekends, no work, no stress, just whatever we want to do. So that's what we did on Sunday, whatever we wanted.
We started off the day waking up at 12 something (we hadn't done that in MONTHS!!), it felt soo good, but we were still soo exhausted. When we finally got out of bed, we headed over to IHOP to have breakfast...Yum!! Then we went back home and well...let breakfast settle. Then we went to the mall to buy some hair gel...while at the mall, we got some Massages!! Now, if you guys have never had a mall massage, let me tell you, they are sooo worth it. For 17 bucks, you get a full back, shoulder, Arm, and hands massage! It is not crappy at all, on the contrary, it is soo good, that you may find yourself dosing off in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the mall. All local malls have it, Dolphin, International, & Dadeland. Not sure about Sunset though...but if you don't have the $$ or the time to get a massage at a spa, let me tell you, this does the trick! I really recommend it!!
After getting our massages, we were soooo out of it...so we made one more stop before we headed home. Once home, we lied in bed for a while, watched some TV, then decided we wanted pizza and a movie. Figured we'd keep it low key and just end the day relaxed before another full week of work! Ughh, I hate going to work!
So we ordered our large pizza, half cheese (for Eric) and half bacon and double pineapple for me!! :) We also rented the movie Role Models which was cute. Not a fantastic movie, but still entertaining and funny. Then we took a shower and went to bed.
All in all, it was a great Trunk Show, and a great day with my Love. I am very blessed to be so happy doing what I Love and being with the people that I Love! I wish everyone reading this, and those not, the happiness that I have. :)

This dresser if from Ikea..for any of you who may want to recreate it!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, check out what a little paint can do!
This is probably my favorite transformation of all...maybe its because I'm partial to the colors...or maybe its because it has a picture of a cat on top of it...either way, I LOVE it!!
After finding countless useless videos, I was somehow redirected to http://www.designspongeonline.com/. If you've never been there, as I had never been, I really recommend that you guys check it out! It is packed full with AMAZING ideas for fun DIY projects!
This blog is going to be directed at some DIY re-upholstery projects that I found on that site.
These last two are my absolute favorites!:
the huge change that a choice of fabric makes! I absolutely love how bright and funky they are! I hope I can find something just as fun as some of these fabrics in the colors that I want!! I will keep you guys updated on the progress of the chairs...we'll see what happens!
Till Next Time...
Anyway, Rich left to work and my sister and I went to run our errands. Our first task of the day was to do some Garage Sale-ing!?! Her area is usually full of those things and people scavenge them relatively early, so we had to get an early start to it. We drove around looking for signs and while driving to the addresses that were printed on bright pink poster board, found a couple unadvertised ones in between. The first time we stopped, my sister bought two small frames that had pastas and other spaghetti related items on them, including a bottle in the background that read "Italian dressing"...my sister said she loved the little french frames, so she just had to buy them! French frames? Really Erika? They're Italian!! Pobresita. Anyway, we continued to scavenge the other sales and found one that had these really cool old chairs.
I guess I should take a second to let you know what we were looking for. I told you guys about how I am setting up an empty room at my moms house as a Love-E Boutique Showroom, so what we were looking for is furniture to put in the room. In particular, a desk, a bookcase, a round table, and some seating. I really loved the chair that was in one of the pictures from Ashli's blog about the all white decorating. So in my head, I wanted an antique looking chair.
So yeah, this garage sale had some old chairs, so we stopped to look at them. They had a great shape to them, and although the upholstery was in pretty bad condition, we figured that we might be able to work with them. Once inquired, the price was $20 per chair (there were two). $40 dollars for two old chairs that were in OKAY shape was a little much for me, so I gave the lady our number and told her that if at the end of the day they were still there, to give us a call and that we would take them. So we left to run our other errands.
About 7 hours!! later, we drove back by the garage sale on our way home to find that the chairs were still there!!! (I figured it was meant to be...either that, or the chairs are pure garbage and no one wanted them..lol) So we scoured the car to try to find more money, cause all I had were $20! After searching the car and Erikas purse, we found $2 dollars, and $3.05 in change!! A total of $25.05!!! Hey, its a Garage Sale, and at the end of the day, so hey, maybe we could get a deal?? So the lady comes towards us and remembers us from earlier in the day, and asks us if we still want the chairs? So we tell her yes and explain to her our situation of the $25.05!! After laughing at our $3.05 in change, she accepts the deal and gives us the two chairs!! Woo hoo!!
On my way home, I'm telling Eric the story of the chairs and how we got such a great deal. I told them that I guess really, they had no other choice, it was the end of the day, and they were probably going to throw them out. They'd rather have $25.05 then have to stay with garbage.
His response to my 6 minute explanation of what a great deal we got: "So you bought Garbage...Awesome!"
Here is a picture of our Garage Sale find..aka, the Garbage:
The plan is to spray paint the wood black and to reupholster the chairs in a bright funky teal color to match Love-E Boutique's Logo. I'll keep you guys updated on the progress of the chairs...my first step is to find the PERFECT fabric...and if you guys know me, you'll know that that's going to take Forevverrrrrr! lol
Till Next Time...
P.S. I really need to embrace the art of short blogs...sorry for the novel!
For more information on hosting a Love-E Boutique Trunk Show, please email Host@Love-EBoutique.com
So yeah, I am officially exhausted. Trunk Shows aren't really as easy as they may seem. There is a lot of lugging around and unpacking to then repack again, going on. So I officially feel like I walked Disney World twice!! (anyone who lives in Miami and has gone to Disney World more than 12 times probably knows the feeling.) My legs are killing me..super sore! But I cant say that I don't enjoy the actual Trunk Shows, they're fun, and they're what I LOVE doing! Its just all the stuff that comes before and after that I don't really love so much..lol But hey, you gotta put up with the bad to get to the good right? Ughh!
