BaubleBar is hands down one of my favorite accessory destinations online! A few years back I purchased some of my first pieces and I've been hooked ever since! 

Today, I'm thrilled to team up with BaubleBar & bring you this chic crystal choker from their April collection for their SugarFix line!

What's that now? SugarFix is BaubleBar's new jewelry collection that's exclusively available at one of my favorite stores, Target. Target X BaubleBar = SugarFix and I'm in love!

This piece is pretty enough to wear on it's own but I also love how versatile it is. You can layer it with more necklaces or add a vintage silk scarf to make it your own!

New styles are launched every month with super duper affordable price points so there's really no reason to not treat yourself. I know I will! 

STYLE & THE BAR CART - KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY PT2

STYLE & THE BAR CART - KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY PT2

It's snowing cats and dogs here in NYC so I decided to push this post live! I also want to give you a little something to keep your thoughts warm if you're experiencing a frigid day like me. 

For my Thirtieth birthday (Part 1), I celebrated in pure Modern-Vintage; Tropical-Glam Panache and of course I needed a tropical themed bar-cart that was suitable for the celebration! If you're not familiar with my series let me give you the full spiel.

Style & The Bar Cart is a creative production that combines my passions (style, decor, vintage & DIY) to serve as outfit and occasion inspiration for the modern-vintage girl who loves to entertain in style and prefers cocktails over wine. 

As with all my bar-carts, this one is easy to put together. Continue reading to get all the tropical-vibes your heart desires.

ACCESSORIZING LIKE MY MAMA

ACCESSORIZING LIKE MY MAMA

I love accessories and if you've been keeping up with me that shouldn't come as a surprise to you. I mean, I have a weakness for all accessories and I blame my Mom entirely. Yes Joan, if you're reading this, it's all your fault!!!

Growing up I would be in awe of Mom's extensive collection and played with all her pieces. She has accessories in every color, size and shape. From jewelry, to belts, to scarves, sunglasses and shoes; that woman is the #accessoryqueen. 

I post a a lot of my accessories on IG from my very own collection and often get asked for sources. Today I'm sharing a few pieces & linking to similar ones as many of my accessories are vintage, belonged to Mom or are no longer available. Continue reading to see what I have lined up for you! It's pretty darn good!

VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2017 - #POETRYFAIL

Who's pumped for Valentine's?!!! I know some roll their eyes at the thought of V-Day but I love this time of year, except for the cold weather in NYC. I'm thinking about flowers and color palettes bursting with red and pink and that simply warms my heart as I'm currently buried under 10 feet of snow. 

Last year I shared my sentiments so I won't share again but if you'd like to get my take on Valentine's or just see my old guide, head over here to do so. 

Now without further ado, let's jump into this year's round up with my #poetryfail that highlights the theme of each board in the most ridiculous manner. Enjoy & have a wonderful weekend filled with love!

KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY - PART 1

KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY - PART 1

Yaaasssssss!!!! I turned 30 this month and had a blast doing so. I planned on sharing this post sooner but between all the birthday celebrations and work, I had no time to do so until now.

Honestly, I'm super tired and have a ton of work to complete for LinkedIn, and some things to tend to for Mom so I'll keep this post short and sweet on the words and heavy on the images. I have another piece I want to share with you but will do so when I'm not trying to do 100 things at once. 

Now you're probably wondering why Krystle's Vintage Thirty, so let me explain. If you couldn't tell, I LOVE VINTAGE. Now besides my deep love, something usually becomes vintage after about 25 years, so I waited 5 more years after turning 25 to ensure I was in the clear. I don't actually think this refers to people but hey, it's my birthday and I make my own rules, damn it! Now even a Vintage Thirty wouldn't be complete without tropical flavor, after all my name is Krystle DeSantos! Now let's dive into some of the images from my 30th birthday weekend.
