Clarksburg Premium Outlets Grand Opening

The Clarksburg Premium Outlets in Maryland are officially open!!! If you live in the NOVA area I know you have to be as excited as I am about this. Who doesn’t love a new outlet mall? The grand opening took place on Thursday October 27th and I am thrilled that I was invited to attend and do some media coverage for the event. Below you’ll fine some photos that were taken by Simon — Doesn’t it make you wanna grab a coffee from Starbucks (Which there is one on location!) and go shopping for the holidays?!

The center is Simon’s second LEED-certified Premium Outlets center, incorporating numerous energy-saving measures in its day-to-day operations, such as LED-lighting, bike racks, solar technology and an enhanced storm water management system. Love it!

You’ll also find below are some live small videos from my Insta-stories while I was shopping and enjoying the festivities they had going on. Lastly, I will show you some great outfits I put together from my shopping spree I had.

clarksburg_grand_009

Now let’s get into some fun highlights of the event!!!!

I brought one of my best friends with me to enjoy the fun! Shopping is always better with a friend. Below you will find a view videos showing the Steve Madden and Nike outlets.

 

When walking into the Steve Madden outlet, I wanted to take everything in a size 9 home with me, I mean thats normal right? They had an extra 20% off that day as well. Total win-win!!

I literally had a blast, this place is not only gorgeous, the layout is perfect, every person I came across was so happy to be working there. The customer service was impeccable. Even with it being a crowded event, everyone seemed so happy just to be there. It put me into the holiday spirit and I’m glad I began some of my Christmas shopping! I will be putting together some great Holiday gift guides coming up for everyone as well so keep your eye out for that, in the mean time, below are some great items I purchased while shopping at Clarksburg Premium Outlets!

First great purchase I made was this gorgeous bright color sweater from the Express Factory Outlets!

I also fell in love with this vest from Old Navy which is pictured below.

Can we also discuss this leather skirt from Express Factory Outlets? (Picture below) To die for! You can also pair with some black tights, body suit and knee high boots as well.

dsc08213 dsc08219

I also grabbed these brown booties from Express Factory Outlets as well, can never have enough booties!!

express-booties

I didn’t get the chance to hit every store as I wanted to but I will be going back to cover more ground later this month! I did most of the damage (shopping) in Nike, Express and Old Navy. I plan to stop in Tory Burch, Kate Spade and Under Armor next time! This is definitely a great place to find some amazing deals wether it’s for the holiday shopping or even just for yourself. You can even bring the whole family, tons of choices to grab lunch or dinner at as well. One of my favorite places where I ate was Rise Pies, photo below (yes, I’m sorry if you’re hungry now) The pizza is made in less than 2 mins and the meatballs are a MUST!!

img_9907

I hope ya’ll who are local are able to stop by and find some great new items for your home, wardrobe or maybe some Diamond’s from Kay’s!! (Wink, Wink) Happy Holidays & make sure to keep your eye out on my Holiday Gift guides that will be coming later this month!!

Fall Favorites x ZooShoo

The best part about changing seasons is buying new shoes!! Right? The one-stop place for my shoes that I adore is ZooShoo and their sister company ZooJi. They carry every brand you could ever want at the best prices. Below I’m sharing my four favorite picks for winter! Also I have 15% coupon for you to use, the code is “tonyamichelle26” 😉

When I first saw these online I kept going back and forth about how I would like them if I pulled the trigger. Well, let’s just say I’m so glad I did. It’s like adding some bling to an outfit without evening having to try. Forgot my earrings this shoot and honestly, who even noticed? All I see is the gold tip on my shoes!!!!! These run true to size and are SUPER comfortable. They also come in black! Linked below.

Still need to shoot these, but I couldn’t wait to share them with you. I wore them with shorts and a cozy beige tunic in the photo below. It’s that time of year where it’s still warm yet transitioning into Fall with your outfits is fun! These booties are the perfect light grey to where you can put them with any outfit and it would be a hit. These don’t rub against my toes as most of my open toe booties do. No one likes to deal with that! These booties are a must have for anyones closet!

These are my new go-to. You can dress down a dress with these sneakers and be ready quick! They are true to size and don’t need to be broken in. Win-Win. I’m about to purchase another pair because I love them so much. Anyone ever find a pair of shoes they love and buy two? These are mine!


Sampson Lo- Jeffrey Campbell

Photos can’t do these shoes justice — they are to die for!!!! Jeffrey Campbell never lets us down with the designs. They are worth every dollar. These 5 inch heels make me feel like Beyonce.

Evys Tree x Tonya Michelle

This smile is because I can wear this blazer TWO ways!!! Yes, you heard me right, one blazer, two ways. Talk about multiple outfits and not taking up precious space in your closet.

img_8023

Today at 10am PST the Ella Blazer goes live on Evy’s Tree! I literally own almost every piece of their collection and I get more and more attached to every new piece they release. Below I am showing how you can wear the blazer TWO different ways.

img_7910

img_7908

Your able to wear the “Ella”blazer with the hoodie insert or you can wear it without! How cool is it that you can wear this for running errands or to give an accent look with your casual outfit. I personally love the hoodie feature. I’m a sucker for any top with a hood. Bad hair days? Hood is up! haha

You can also take the hoodie insert out as I did below and make the outfit more professional for your daily work attire. With my white jeans below, I look like I’m waiting for my boat to pick me up at the dock. 1. I don’t have a boat 2. Not at a dock. — Maybe I’ll come out and hang out with the Evy’s Tree team someday and we can take this out on a boat!

img_7912-2

I also love a good deal & Evy’s Tree is giving you a huge deal on their ‘Skyler’ cape/scarf if you by them both together tomorrow. You can get the ‘Skyler’ for $29!!! The skyler is pictured below! I wore it as a cape. It comes in one size.

Hello there, I put together a little video to introduce myself & the looks below:

I am so excited to show you two of my favorite looks right now from @charlotterusse – They are currently having a huge contest and I personally think I am perfect for their #CRitGIRLcontest! 50 women will be chosen and I need to be one of them — Don’t you agree?

I wanted to give you more details on this looks I put together from Charlotte Russe. I purchased these items in-store last week, you can find them there as well and I’ve even linked the actual items or similar below. Would love to hear your feedback below, either on the looks or what you’d love to see more of from me.

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it. When I walked into Charlotte Russe I swear it was staring right at me. It’s called “Floral Surplice Dress” I’m wearing a small and it fits comfortably — I could of done an XS. I’m usually not an XS. I love how I can transition this into fall, the colors are perfect and simply add some tights & booties — you’ll be on your way to killing that Fall Fashion look.

Direct links to purchase:

XS & S: Currently on sale for $20

2X & 3X :Currently priced at $31.99

The heels I purchased in store and couldn’t find online, I’ve linked some similar ones that would be great for the upcoming months below!

Caged Lace-Up Chunky Heel Sandals                   Bamboo Covered Ankle Chunky Sandals

 

My second look I fell in love with is below! Suede is my new obsession and I wish I could put it on my walls at home. My boyfriend might not like that though– so my fashion looks will have to do! haha

The video below is a great preview of this look:

 

The second look is another dress that I fell in love with when I walked in, I swear both of these outfits were just meant to be. Sadly, I found this in-store — online they only have olive, which I’ve linked below for you and the same with the shoes. The dress is currently on sale — don’t wait– pay day was yesterday anyways right? 😉 Also, can we talk about these boho black feather earrings? AH! They also only available in-store, but they have similar pairs I have linked below for you.
