Betsey Johnson First Impressions + OOTD ♥

Hello cuties! Today I'm going to be doing a review/first impressions of some items from Betsey Johnson. I've been a fan of Betsey Johnson for SO LONG and I am rea;;y happy to finally own a couple items from her brand. Let me start off by saying, I got both of these items from Ross so, they're pretty old. You might be able to find them at stores like Ross or DD's Discounts since they tend to carry a lot of Betsey items.

Here is my beautiful beautiful bag that was gifted to me by my sister.We went to Ross together and she saw me looking at the Betsey bags and offered to buy it for me /sobs/ ;; Since she bought it at Ross, it was really inexpensive.

This bag was originally priced at $68.00 and was $20.99 at Ross. This bag was significantly marked down and is still like new! Ross carries a lot of Betsey bags as well as other high quality brands like Nike, Filas, Puma etc. for really affordable prices. I highly recommend checking out your local Ross or DD's Discount stores for cute items like these.

The bag originally came with the black and pink tassel heart but, I personally didn't like it so I replaced it with a fluffy pink heart charm gifted to me by a friend.  I'm not a fan of tassels but I am a big fan of fluffy accessories!  I love it so much.

This bag has a BEAUTIFUL heart quilted pattern all along the front and back with black and pink stripes. I decided that this bag is going to be my new everyday purse! It's simple, cute and will match most of my clothes really well. You can carry it as a handbag with the handles or use the strap. You can also remove the strap which is really nice since it's actually pretty long for me. I wore it across my chest like a messenger bag and it was down to my thigh vs. my hip (I'm 5'0). One of the things I dislike about this bag is that the strap isn't adjustable. I love the gold chain detailing, though.

The inside is so cute! It has cute black and white stripes and hot pink lips with "Luv Betsey" written on the inside which was a really cute touch. I am however really disappointed that there's no inside pocket, at all. I don't have anywhere to put little things which means I'll have to dig through my purse to find things like my lipgloss and things like that.

It's a pretty decently sized bag, though! Everything I need fits in here including my big phone with my super cute BB and B decoden case [Review Here ♥] which is really great! Other than the lack of a side pocket, I really love the interior.

I really needed a pair of sunnies because I lost my last pair! Funny thing is I wasn't sure if I should buy these because they were $10 but, I decided to purchase them because they fit my face really well and I needed them! These are all over the internet but these particular Betsey Johnson sunnies are $60.00 online not including tax or shipping. You bet after I saw how much they were originally I was SO happy I bought them!

The rose gold color is so cute! I'm late hopping on the rose gold trend but I'm here hello... and I love it!!! ♥ Honestly this little pink heart pn the frame is the reason I decided to buy them haha~ It's so adorable! I love these so much!

I'm glad I kept my Bonlook eyeglasses case because now I have a safe place to store my sunnies instead of at the bottom of my purse! Tell me why my Too Faced compact literally matches hehe that wasn't intentional, I swear! But sooo cute aaa ~ ♥

Here's my Outfit of the Day! Details and where to buy everything is on my instagram @pastelcutie so, check it out! ♥

Overall I'm an even bigger fan of Betsey Johnson now and I will be purchasing more handbags from her in the future! Her bags are so unique and high quality, how could I say no? ♥ I really hope you all enjoyed this review! Let me know down in the comments which brand is YOUR favorite?! I'd love to know!!

As always, thank you so much for reading. I'll see you soon!

BB and B Phone Case Review ♥

BB and B

Hello friends! Today I have a very special review for you all. I'm going to be reviewing an online store called BB and B. BB and B makes handmade accessories, charms, jewelry and phone cases. BB and B and I have a very exclusive and special collaboration. This case was sent to me for review but all opinions are my own, as always! It's also very important that I mention, BB and B isn't taking custom cases at the moment but, all the cases on the site are pre-made and ready to order!

First off, the packaging is absolutely beautiful! My phone case came wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper and was placed neatly in a white soft drawstring bag with BB and B written on it. It has a very professional look and I am very impressed! They really took the time to present this case in a very cute and professional manner,

Here is my beautiful beautiful phone case. I gave them a very simple description with a few specifics and they gave me more than I ever could have hoped. I did not see the end result before receiving my phone case so, I was completely shocked and impressed by how beautiful it is. I used larme kei (Swankiss specifically) as inspiration for this case and it is wonderful!

The instructions that I gave to BB and B were simple. I wanted strawberries, lots of roses, a spoon (because I'm a spoonie hehe) and asked for a pink swan macaron. I let their designers have control over what to do with the rest of the case. They gave me everything I wanted and more! I'm extremely impressed. These cases are a bit more expensive than most decoden cases and rightfully so. They make each piece and charm for their cases by hand in Japan. Not only that but, they use real pearls and Swarovksi crystals on their cases. It doesn't get more high quality than this!

The charm on my case is so pretty! It is a beautiful ruby charm on a pink BB and B printed ribbon. It has a gold charm with BB and B carved into it with a bunny on the other side! It's so cute, I tried to take a photo but my camera refused to focus! I also really love the cute little honey jar on my case, it's such a small detail but it's those little details that make this case so stunning. There's another small charm (3rd photo) on the left next to the star which is so cute! Can you believe they make all of these by hand?!

The boarders of the case are made from a soft, flexible rubber like material that makes taking the case off so easy! I was worried that I would have trouble taking off the case especially with how packed it is with cute things but, nope! It  was really easy to put on, and remove. It also fits my case perfectly. There are a few different phone models listed on the site. They make iPhone cases, and a few different galaxy case models. They may offer more variety in the future.

Overall, I am extremely impressed with this case. The attention to detail and quality is amazing. I've never had a case quite like this one but, BB and B exceeded any and every expectation that I had. I very very very highly recommend BB and B to all of you! You will not be disappointed. They also included extra pieces just in case some bits fall off overtime. This case feels durable but you should always be very gentle with handmade cases. There is a business card that comes with care instructions for your handmade pieces, as well.

The instructions are really important because following the instructions will keep your handmade pieces in the best shape so they will last! It's really nice when shops include things like this as I like to take the best care of my decoden cases.

BB and B was kind enough to give me a code for all of you! The code is "PastelCutie" and when entered upon checkout, you will receive a special gift with your order.

When you go to make an account on their site! You can only place an order after making an account. It's really simple and fast. Once you make an account, it has to be approved by BB and B. Once your account is active, you can view the full details and prices of each case, manage your orders and add items to a wishlist.

I can't recommend BB and B enough. I sincerely hope that you take the time to check out their site! I also really hope that you enjoyed this review. As always, thank you so much for reading and I'll see you soon! Love you. ♥
