Versona Accessories Opens in Tulsa

Versona Accessories Opens in Tulsa on Belle Belle BeautyBefore a couple weeks ago, I had never heard of Versona Accessories. Shame on me because the stores are all over the southern United States. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was invited to attend the grand opening right here in Tulsa.

Needless to say I was thrilled to find affordable accessories, clothes and shoes! The store is huge, but the staff was helpful without being overbearing. I was impressed – considering the prices – how well constructed the shoes were and how rich the fabrics felt! And bonus points for the smattering of work wear.

I picked up a bunch of jersey basics (starting at $19.99). I was tempted by the shoes but decided to wait until spring was in full swing. Needless to say, I will be returning. And good news for those living where there isn’t a store – Versona just launched e-commerce.

That’s not all – I am sharing the love today and teamed up with Versona to give away one $25 gift card. Just enter using the widget below. Sorry 🙁 US only on this one.

Wednesday On The Web

Slouchy & Refined on Belle Belle Beauty

We made it! Home stretch of the week. Although I can say I have loved this little burst of warm air down here in Tulsa since everyone is complaining back East. I drove home with my windows down (it was 80 today). That’s not to say I am not wanting at least one good storm this winter. And we need it – dry as a bone. Meanwhile, I am working towards this slouchy but polished look above – I keep grabbing my wide-leg work pants lately!

Some finds from around the web – lots of links this week!:

Having major closet aspirations right now. This post by Lauren, has gotten me started. And yes, I purchased the book.

I just purchased these boots – I know I will only get to wear them for another couple weeks here in Tulsa – but I am trying to shop in the full swing of sales!

Absolutely adore my dear friend’s mani.

Beautiful post about life that is worth living.

Speaking of “off season” shopping, I just got this coat for an upcoming trip (snagged mine in all black) – major steals if you need a cute coat ALERT.

Desperately searching for somewhat reasonable layering tanks and tees – I have loved Vince and T by Alexander Wang but need something I can afford to stock up on. Any ideas? Comment here or hit me up on FB or Twitter if you have any brilliant ideas.

Loving this “new to me” clothing line!

I was thrilled to be featured in a favorite local publication this week. Prairie Hive was founded by a group of creative women, sharing inspiration on design, lifestyle, travel and entertaining. These designers, photographers, writers elequently and beautifully show us a little peek into talented and fashionable locals. And it was an honor to share my favorite beauty products for Spring including:

  1. Maybelline Color Whisper – These gel-based lipsticks are super nourishing and provide just a wash of color making them so easy to wear.
  2. Marni Eau de Parfum – This new fragrance is the first by the fashion house and has the freshness for spring but with a little darker twist making it unique (and I can’t get over the adorable packaging!).
  3. bareMinerals READY Foundation – This mineral compact foundation has the radiant finish of liquids but portability of powder making it perfect for spring skin that isn’t as dry and more prone to breakouts.
  4. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 in Lemon and Chamomile – One to steal from the guys, this lip balm has the best scent, offers SPF for the warming days and heals those dry winter lips in no time.
  5. Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20 – This new BB Cream is ultra-lightweight and sheer, perfect for by the pool or for a radiant base under your regular makeup for a dewy, fresh look.
  6. Kate Somerville D-Scar Diminishing Serum – Anticipating baring more skin in our spring and summer wardrobes, I’ve been working to improve the appearance of scars with this new serum from one of my favorite skin care lines – I’ve had crazy dramatic results using this goodie.
  7. Mario Badescu Oil-Free Moisturizer SPF 30 – I am an SPF fanatic and this affordable version packs in great coverage, is very lightweight and works beautifully under makeup.
