Hello, Longtime no see, I know I know. You were probably wondering where I have been hiding? Well life, got kinda crazy but I am back in full swing- reposting  new looks and hopefully some new looks, plus I am working on alot more projects and now have motivation to post more looks, and work harder at this blog because I have been thinking about this blog and what it means to me and I’ve been thinking it’s time to work harder and post more awesome stuff, including inspiration, the blog itself will be getting a make-over soon I promise, a lot of new attitudes for the blog, because it is my project and my outlet to express my sense of fashion, being from the mid west it’s hard to find people here that share my love of fashion and my like of clothing, plus life has been crazy! I hope you can understand my time away from the blog, but it feels great to be back. I hope you are here to stay with me-

To the Future,

Love

Styled In The Heartland Hearts Edrop Off

 

 

Hey guys, sorry its taking me so long to update you! Last weekend i had the privilege of shopping with E-Drop Off ( a consignment based eBay store in Chicago IL) They had a annual charity warehouse sale, which i didnt make it to last year but this year i drove up at 2 am got there @5 and stood in line and managed to snag loads of designer goodies such as Lanvin Flats, Chanel , Prada, Fendi, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Pucci, Elizbath Gillet, Escada, Bill Bass, Judith Lieber! It was madness the people in line, plus the ladies i stood in line with were funny! I had a great time in picking up some designer end items for a good cause. All the Money went to Charity. I also had the privilege of consigning items with Edrop Off they made it super easy for me all i had to do was drop of the item in the posh Lincoln park store.
I hope you enjoy this short quick post! If you would like to bid on my item Vist Here

Sometimes, I Still Need You

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey there, welcome to this weekend’s edition of Styledintheheartland, I’m sorry i don’t get to post much during the week, i have not a ton of time on my hands then , but today Was really cold. My friends took me to a park, where i shot photos for them (i do photography for my job). So i had a lot of fun in the park running around shooting and freezing to death. I chose this sweater because it has a lot of meaning to me, it was the sweater i purchased right before i moved out of Chicago and i haven’t worn it since last year, and i was 65lbs heavier so it brought back memories putting it on I really want to focus on my jewelry. The Leaf Necklace i am wearing was made by a jewelry company called Decadence, which i found out through Handmade City. Andrew, the designer creates one of a kind vintage pieces, and He’s so incredibly talented. I love this necklace it took me forever to decided when i purchased it. If you really want to check his work out i will drop Decendances Facebook and etsy links at the bottom of the post. I really hope that you are all staying warm out there, next weekend i will have a special post, as i travel back to Chicago a year later to relive my time there. I will hopefully be meeting some other bloggers and friends and i will be attending a few events and some shopping. Until Tomorrow, xx

Fall Is Here, Lets Get Away to Bishop Hill.

Hey guys, thank you for joining me on this delightful saturday. I recently (today) went to Bishop Hill IL its a little town in IL with all kinds of crafts, little shops, demonstrations, and all kinds of good foods. It was a ladies day with my church, so i decided to wear something fun and purple. We cant forget about how great purple is special deep purple in the falls is. I admit i look somewhat a bit horrid today mainly is because im sick with a sinus infection but i was a trooper and went anyway today. I got to try lots of great foods, look at alot of cute things and i purchased a few jems from Peasant Works- (you can read about them here: (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Peasant-Works/188845943561) Its a cute little barn full of antiques hand made items. I enjoyed taking a lot of photos for this beautiful trip.  I tried all kinds of foods, apple butter, a lovely turkey sandwhich . Bishop Hill was a very fun neat city to join if your interested in learning more about the place its self you can visit them at (http://www.bishophill.com/) I hope you enjoy my short posting today, as i recover have a great weekend xx.

Gimme that Celebration Fever!

Hey Guys! Welcome to Sunday Funday! Thanks for again joining me for some fun. Today I was on my way to a partay for my cousin who got married yesterday so I wanted to choose Warm, but yet Casual. In my family we are big on thrifting, especially me if you know from reading my blog. So I took my butt to Salvation Army yesterday and found these amazing Slim-fit straight pants in a rich blue color that I fell in love with! I also found a sparkly sweater that I fell in love with and have been dying to wear this vintage clock necklace (YO’ FLAVA FLAV YEAHHHH! BOIIII). Also found this great locket last night that I wanted to wear. I had so much fun pairing neon accents with a casual look (see, I told you all neon rules!). I am also loving this little cute, clutch I sported all day, it was an awesome find last night too! I can’t believe the weekend is all over! I hope you enjoyed this shorty posting, and I cant wait til next weekend’s fun! xx

Hey Ladies, Lets Disco

Hey There Guys, welcome back to the weekend Disco, i have been so busy this weekend, with reading, movies and general relaxation. I’ve been dying to wear these  hot pink bell bottoms, and this entire set i picked up awhile ago, i fell in love with the super wide flair pants (which you find a similar pair from Alice & Olivia) I had fun shooting these photos with a friend, now that fashion week is over (or still going on in my head) i will be putting some fun post to come! xx

Recap: Lets Push Some Prints And Pink

 

Let’s Discuss, Oscar De La Renta, now we all know this fabulous man  has been in business for along time, but seriously after seeing a few pictures of the collection not absolutely adore these. Lots of Brights, colors and streaky-colored hair! Look at that Hot Pink, i mean for real, Pink is really making a come back especially the bright pink. Oscar has been always known for his very tailored and glamourous look, thats why we love this collection.  (photos courtsey of tumblr.com)

 

 

Secondly we have Tory Burch, I used to shop at Tory Burch alot in chicago (boy do i miss the persian store carpet and those orange doors). But this collection was interesting because i wasnt seen the TB logo, everywhere. Alot of fun colors and mesy Fish tail braids. Also alot of interesting jewelry i saw in this collection but overall- awesome and lovely for spring.

 

 

now we have to talk about Marchesa, who is not only one of my very very very (VERY) favorite designers, i just Love Marchesa because its not only elegant but breathtaking and i hope to be married in some Marchesa wedding dress. But this little sampling of the s/s 2013 collection and I’m already in love with the bottom dress i love the colors and the train, i mean its so beautiful and the just the whole collection i fell in complete love with,

 

Last but not least Jeremy Scott S/S 2013 – Now if you know anything of Jeremy Scott you know that his outrageous with his outfits (ask Nicki Minaj since he designed her concert clothes) Hes also famous for those Animal Sneakers Via Adidas but this collection was interesting because it has a middle easter theme with the burkas, but he didnt leave the prints out Hello Animal Prints and Face Prints, even on the Men too, i wouldn’t expect less of Jeremy Scott to be honest with you, he is always over the top. but i do think his fashion is interesting to push boundaries which i do enjoy. so kuddos jeremy.

 

I hope you all enjoy this snidbit, and with that, good night!

 

xx
