Currently Coveting: Chanel, Benefit, Fragrances, Victoria's Secret

I have recently become obsessed with vintage Chanel earrings. They are so stunning. I want a pair to wear with my hair pulled into a bun, some big cat eye sunglasses (perhaps my new Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana shades), and red lipstick!

I've gotten a few makeup products over the past month that I never posted about, so I figured I'd post them all together. :) I have been coveting a few things from Benefit (Erase Paste, Boi-ing, That Gal, High Beam, Benetint, and some perfumes) and Too Faced eyeshadow brushes, as well as J'adore Dior and Viva La Juicy, so hopefully I'll be able to purchase all of those things eventually. For now, here are the makeup/beauty items I've gotten!

“It's all a game, with new rules every season.” -Stefano Gabbana

Sunglasses are becoming one of my greatest vices....I have accumulated a great deal more pairs than originally intended. These are my newest babies - Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana cat eyes. I love cat eye sunglasses and am now eying (no pun intended) a pair from Dior...
Before I delve right into this post, I'd like to link an interview I did with the website Smashion! :D
They have a cool website that's definitely worth checking out =)

"You can't pretend that everybody likes Versace. It would be boring. It's better to create a reaction than to create no reaction. That's dangerous." -Donatella Versace

Allow me to preface this post by addressing my minor hypocrisy - I generally am not a fan of H&M. I am also, or was never, a fan of the designer/lower-end-store collaborations, as I thought that this was an excuse to sell low quality goods for an escalated price simply because the tag boasted a designer name. 
For some reason, Versace for H&M got me kind of excited. There was a particular skirt that I wanted, and then I just sort of decided that if I were going to get the skirt, I might as well get something to match it, and so on and so on.... The items in the collection were definitely not for everyone, but I really love what I got. :)
These are my very first H&M pieces (albeit not my first Versace pieces), which is also kind of interesting and exciting for me. I think the items that I purchased are really fun and eye-catching, despite being all black lol! (Those palm tree prints were not for me.) Anyway, without further ado, here are the things that I purchased!

"As far as I can remember, every dime I ever had went to something extravagant. I would rather spend more, buy fewer items and have them forever." -Rachel Zoe

I feel like I've been buying so many Juicy Couture items lately. I redeemed my Mystery Money Card this weekend; it had $25 on it. I wanted to buy a pair of stud earrings but it turned out that I couldn't buy a sale item with the mystery money credit. I was already at the counter so I just turned around and grabbed some scrunchies that were exactly $25 lol!

"I don't do fashion; I am fashion." -Coco Chanel

I've done a lot of shopping and thrifting in the past couple of months but I haven't posted a few of my purchases, so I decided to make a joint post with today's finds (a Theory blazer, a Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt, a Theory sweater, and a Kate Spade cardigan) and previous purchases. If you're interested, keep reading! :)

This post is going to be about some items I've thrifted (a Marc by Marc Jacobs camisole, a Lorick dress, a Theory sequin tee, and a Missoni scarf) and a few other random goodies!
