B.A.D. Girl Review: Eyewear from Firmoo

If I told you how long it has been since I got a new pair of glasses you might be scared to know what the heck I have been wearing. Thankfully, I was asked by Firmoo.com to do a product/service review. Woo-hoo! I selected these rectangular frame eyeglasses, which come in both black and tortoise. Pros: Really affordable prices Quick turnaround time Glasses are nice quality The virtual try-on is very helpful Comes with a hard case, cleaning cloth and an additional fabric carrying case Cons: Would have liked more fashion-forward options The lenses I chose were supposed to help with the way that my eyes appear smaller due to my prescription but I did not notice a difference. If you are in the market for a new pair of specs I definitely recommend checking Firmoo out. They have a First Pair Free Program for new customers where all you have to pay for is the lens and shipping costs. They also promise a full refund if you are not satisfied with the product. There …

B.A.D. Girl Style: The ModCloth Weekend Warrior

I am excited to be participating in a weekly Polyvore outfit challenge hosted by ModCloth as part of their Uniquely You campaign!  This weeks featured item is the ‘Twirl Next Door Dress‘, a striped retro inspired piece in black and cream. Weekend Warrior by stylemebad featuring a golden earring When I saw this dress I immediately thought of weekend brunches and running around New York City on a beautiful day so that is where my inspiration for putting the outfit together came from. In order to successfully conquer your weekend you have to look put together but you also have to be comfortable so you can go for the long haul. My Weekend Warrior essentials always include a jacket for chilly mornings/nights, comfortable shoes, a lightweight bag that I can wear hands-free and dark sunglasses.  Always. How would you rock this dress? xoxo Nicole Check out ModCloth for other super cute dresses too! Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

B.A.D. Girl Style: All Neutral Everything

This past weekend I had the honor of attending a graduation party for one of my sorority sisters who achieved her goal of obtaining her Doctorate by the age of 30! This is such a killer accomplishment and to reach it at such a young age is even more amazing! I am so proud of my beautiful friend Dr. Marquez and all that she will do to help change and shape the world! I apologize for the lack in photo quality as these were taken in dim lighting with my phone but I just had to share this amazing accomplishment and my outfit of course! You can get the look for under $100! Get the Look: Skirt in Black Here, Crop Top Here, Shoes Here, Cuff Bracelet Here I pretty much stuck with neutral shades for this outfit where I normally may have thrown in a pop of color. My lipstick was even in a nude shade! My outfit was super affordable since I got my top and skirt from Tobi which offer 50% of your first order with them! …

B.A.D. Girl Style: Spring/Summer Footwear Trend to Skip

Okay so I normally don’t mention trends that I don’t like on here because I don’t even care to mention them but this ugly shoe trend has got to stop! Designers like Celine, Prada and Marc Jacobs have made this footwear trend acceptable and it has hit mainstream in full force. I keep seeing so many of my favorite bloggers rocking Birkenstocks and it makes me want to cry! I am all about comfort, but I wont go this far until I am at least 80 yrs old and even then I may reconsider.  I don’t care how much you embellish these things I find them terrible. And don’t get me started on the sport slides.  I thought this was more of a street wear trend until I saw that designers were styling resort collections with these things. You have got to be kidding me! Wearing Adidas sport slides as part of your outfit is acceptable? Stop it. Leave them for the athletes and college students who wear them to class with sweats and socks. I cant. What do you think of this trend? …

B.A.D. Girl Style: Blazer & Jeans

I’ve always loved how a good blazer can make you look and feel so put together. Throw a blazer over a graphic tee like my newest drop from MyTee B.A.D.

Girls are always on point and no matter what we are doing we do the damn thing WELL! We are determined women who give our all or nothing at all. So by wearing this tee you are not only saying you are a true B.A.D. Girl but that you are damn good at being one too! You can purchase the B.A.D. Girls Do It Well Tee with my reader discount code SMB20 to score 20% off! Shop MyTee B.A.D. Clothing! Share with me something you do WELL?! xoxo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

B.A.D. Girl Spring Trend: Slip-On Sneakers

This is probably my favorite shoe trend of the season because its an easy shoe to style. You can rock them with jeans and a blazer for the office or pair them with a cute dress for weekend brunch dates. I haven’t decided on the pair that I want yet and because I am an entrepreneur on a budget I have to choose the most versatile. I am however,  leaning towards the Steve Maddens since I don’t have Miu Miu money just yet. Steve Madden ECTRC-C in Snake, $99.95 Steve Madden ECCENTRIC in Leopard, $99.95 Vans classic slip-on in Metallic Leather, $60 Mother of Pearl printed canvas slip-ons, $370 Saint Laurent Pinaskullada in Pink/Black, $395 MIU MIU leather point toe slips-ons in Black, $490 Ash studded low tops in white, $142 Would you rock this trend? xoxo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

MyTee B.A.D. Clothing Featured on Elvis Duran and The Morning Show

“If you want to add some edge to your style check out MyTeeBAD.  Not only do they have great accessories but the name of the company has a cool meaning BAD stands for “Beautiful, Authentic, and Determined”. The call it the B.A.D. Girl movement! I love that! If you think you’re beautiful, authentic, and determined then you need to shop their items. Beanies, hand chains, bracelets, and tee shirts but I’m loving their turband headbands. I have a one with money on it! There’s one with Barbie & Ken images! It’s really great stuff at a reasonable price!” @TheCarlaMarie  I still can’t believe that my clothing line MyTee B.A.D. was talked about on one of the top radio morning shows in the country! I am so honored to have been featured as a cool company to check out for their popular “What’s Trending” segment! If you aren’t familiar the Elvis Duran Morning Show is pretty much the best radio show here in New York and it is syndicated nationwide too! The hosts are hysterical and I highly recommend them for your morning commute. I would like to …
