Top 19 Purchases of 2019


High waisted swimsuits

Holy moly I can’t believe this swimsuit came in as the number one seller for all of 2019! It’s safe to say y’all love Amazon, especially swimsuits, so expect to see a lot more try ons this year. This little Amazon swimsuit cutie now comes in 8 colors, is full coverage and extremely good quality. It has padding and the scallop detail is just adorable! I got a size small and say it fits similar to an XS so if in between sizes, size up.


Amazon Cocktail Dress

Another Amazon winner! This cocktail dress comes in 15 colors and is so flattering on all body types. It is double lined and great quality. I got the size small (4-6) because it was the only available size at the time but could have done the XS (0-2).


High waisted swimsuits

This designer dupe has been all over Instagram and comes in a ton of color combinations (18 to be exact!). It is high waisted, full coverage and padded. I got the size 4 which fits like an XS.


Silk Pillowcase Review

I did an in depth review of the real deal silk pillowcase verses the dupe (find it here). While the dupe doesn’t have as many benefits as the real deal, it’s still a great alternative if you are looking to go longer in between hair washes, keep you hair styled longer and make sure your pillow isn’t absorbing your expensive skincare!


Tili It's All Chic To Me December Box

This mist actually came in a set with the tanning mist, tanning drops and a tanning mitt which is definitely the best deal that I have seen if you are a fan of both of these products like I am. I personally use the tanning mist on my body and the drops on my face. The tanning mist is sprayed directly onto the skin and then spread evenly with the tanning mitt. It goes on clear and odorless so it doesn’t transfer onto clothing and bedding and doesn’t even require rinsing off! It develops over 8 hours and gives a very natural tan! I use shade medium in the Winter and dark in the Summer.


Amazon Pearl Headband

Can you believe this headband is less than $2?! Pearl headbands have been a big trend this past year, some of the popular ones being $150. Get the look for less with this trendy headband that comes in 8 colors.


International Womens Day Spring Make Up Refresh

Similar to the tanning mist, the drops are clear and odorless. The difference with application is that the drops are mixed into your moisturizer before applying to your skin. These can be used all over your body but I personally just use them on my face! I use shade dark year round and typically apply 2-3 times per week.


Best Sellers of 2019

I bought these during the Nordstrom Sale and have gotten so much use out of them. Whether with a basic outfit or mixing them with prints, they instantly jazz up any outfit. They run true to size and also come in a black version. If you want to get the look for less ($23), try these!


Best Seller of 2019

Yet another Amazon swimsuit that made the top 19! This gingham cutie is high waisted, pretty full coverage and padded. The top is similar to that of a sports bra. I got a size small.


If you are a jumpsuit lover, this one is super comfy and super cheap plus I love that it can be worn on or off the shoulder. It is great for those throw on and go days as well as self tanner days since it’s black! It also comes in 5 other colors and runs true to size.


Amazon Best Sellers

This dress is perfect for wedding guests and actually comes in white too for all of my brides out there! It is stretchy but still double lined and great quality. I got the size small but I would say it fits more like an XS so if in between sizes, size up.


Tile Mug

Although I didn’t talk about these initial mugs until Christmas time, you ladies loved them! They very quickly made the top 19 list. Not only do these make great Christmas gifts, they also make great birthday gifts as well as teacher gifts too.


I was a little surprised to see this place in the top 19 but for very good reason that it did! This tool is amazing for exfoliating and sucking all of the gunk out of your face. Way better in the long run than paying for monthly facials when you can do it at home for cheaper! You can actually grab it for 40% off TODAY ONLY with code MD40 here.


As one of my most worn pieces in my closet, I’m so glad this suede moto jacket made the top 19! It comes in several colors and runs true to size. If you plan on wearing bulkier layers underneath, size up! If you want to get the look for less, try this!


Silk Pillowcase Review

I did an in depth review of the silk pillowcase and all of it’s benefits for your hair and skin (find it here). If you aren’t a fan of hair washes or wake up with cowlicks, you NEED one of these! It’s legit life saving ladies and saves so much time.


Best Sellers of 2019

One of my most exciting projects to date was getting to collaborate with QVC for their monthly TILI box. I got to pick all 8 items that are in the $25 beauty box including two full size beauty products. Get detailed information about each item here. I cannot thank you ladies enough for all of your support on this project!


Best Seller of 2019

Disclaimer: the coat that I am wearing is a newer version of the one that placed in the top 19 so it is slightly different in style and color. That being said the one that placed in the top 19 is a great option and is currently just $60 with code HAPPYCLOSET. I sized up to fit sweaters and am wearing a size 2 regular.


Best Seller of 2019

The Spanx faux leather leggings have continuously been a top seller for good reason. As many dupes as I find, none will ever compare to the real deal and how much I love them! They can easily be dressed down like this or dressed up for date night! If in between sizes, size up. I wear a small. Lots of styles are currently on sale here with code WINTERSALE.


Makeup Routine

The best full coverage concealer on the market in my opinion! Y’all loved this deal where you can get two concealers and a beauty blender for just $37. Usually one tube of concealer is $27 so it’s a great deal for sure. They are still a few shades left. I wear Shade light in winter and medium light in the Winter!


Thank you for being here. Thank you for your purchases. Thank you for giving me credit. Thank you for your likes, comments, messages and tags! Thank you for trusting me as a resource to help your shopping experience hopefully better and easier. When I look back on 2019 I am most thankful for your support and allowing me to continue to do a job that I genuinely love and can’t imagine doing anything else.

Wedding Dress Codes and Style Guide

Wedding Guest Dress Code

Dress: Nordstrom (comes in 7 colors) | Shoes: Steve Madden (ON SALE)

Wedding season is in full force and has been the most requested topic by far from you ladies! This post idea has been in the works for quite some time and I’m hoping that it will serve as a comprehensive guide for all of your wedding attire needs for both brides and wedding guests. Everything from showers to bachelorette parties to the actual wedding weekend, I’ve sifted through thousands and thousands of dresses to find appropriate choices for each of these events. This is a long post but should answer all of your questions when it comes to what to wear to a wedding event whether it’s in a barn, on the beach or a church!



Black tie and black tie optional weddings are going to be more “gala-like” than a cocktail attire wedding. Men pull out their tuxedos and women are decked out in floor length gowns. The “optional” part in black tie just means that you don’t have to wear a floor length gown if you do not wish to. But hey, after prom how many times do us girls get the chance to rock a gown? Have a little fun with it! For black tie optional, nicer midi dresses and jumpsuits are totally fine just remember to error on the dressier side (like this!). For black tie weddings, keep in mind that renting a ball gown is an excellent option! You don’t want to spend $200+ on a dress chances are you are never going to wear again especially since you know you’ll want something new for the next event! Rent The Runway is a service I have used several times now. They have thousands of designer and name brand dress options. The best part is that they send you two sizing options so that if your normal size doesn’t work, you have  a back up!

He should wear: A tuxedo or formal dark suit and tie

She should wear: A long evening dress or formal cocktail dress



From personal experience, 9 out of 10 weddings you are going to be invited to will be cocktail attire. If the invitation says “dressy casual”  or semi formal you might as well look at it as cocktail attire. Why there are 500 different ways to say cocktail attire I have no idea. It’s 2018 so people think they are really creative when honestly they are just really confusing.

Basically a cocktail dress is just a fancy term for a “nice” dress that is not a ball gown. If you are unsure of what would qualify as a cocktail dress think about it this way: a dress that you would feel overdressed wearing to a luncheon and underdressed wearing to a gala. While most cocktail dresses usually hit above the knee, midi and maxi dresses can also be worn for cocktail attire. Keep in mind a less formal approach to a longer length dress might be more appropriate as not to look you are going to a black tie wedding. Jumpsuits are certainly appropriate as well for cocktail attire but error on the side of a more formal jumpsuit (like this!). I did an entire post here on why I actually prefer to wear jumpsuits for weddings. Here is just one of several reasons that I gave in the post:

…while every other girl is trying to hike up her dress and awkwardly dance, you are 10 steps ahead of them ready to take on the limbo, cha cha slide, cotton-eyed joe and every other cliche wedding song like a total champ!

He should wear: A suit and tie

She should wear: A cocktail dress or jumpsuit



Apparently this is becoming a thing guys! News to me too because I haven’t had the pleasure of having been invited to one. *Side note: all of my destination beach wedding friends can come out of hiding now*. The formal term is used relatively loosely here, mostly meaning that a dress below the knees would be best but is not required. You will want to dress for the elements (sun, sand and sweat) so flowy, sleeveless options are usually best.

He should wear: A summer suit with (no ties required), linen pants (or khakis) and sandals

She should wear: A formal sundress at knee length or below with sandals


Generally speaking, casual means anything goes but jeans, shorts and tank tops are probably not appropriate unless they’re specifically noted as acceptable. Keep in mind the time of day for the wedding. Daytime weddings are going to be a little less dressy than a night time wedding. Also note the type of venue. You probably don’t want to wear a nice cocktail dress to a barn wedding and a sundress might be too casual for a nice hotel. If you are still confused on what to wear, I promise this little dress won’t steer you wrong.

He should wear: Dress pants with a button-down shirt or polo

She should wear: A sundress or a skirt with a nice top


No matter what type of wedding you attend, accessorizing is one in the same. 9 out of 10 times you will find me in these nude heels. They seriously go with any and every dress! Not to mention they are great for date night or a girls night out too. Speaking from experience, you honestly can’t go wrong with a pair of Steve Madden heels! Jewelry wise, invest in a couple of fun pairs of earrings that you can dress up or down. This way you can wear them beyond weddings! My gold hoops almost never leave my ears- weddings, date nights, work wear, you name it! If you buy one pair of earrings, make it these. Lastly, if you know you might be cold at the wedding, bring a wrap instead of a jacket as it will look a bit nicer!


Attire for showers is completely dependent on location. For locations such as somebody’s house or an informal restaurant, a casual sundress, skirt or even jeans and a nice top will do! If the shower is at a nicer restaurant, church or formal venue, you will want to wear a sundress.




Again attire is dependent on location. If the rehearsal is held at a church, you have to be mindful that it is a holy place. Some religions require that your shoulders be covered when inside of the church. I would not advise wearing a skirt or jeans unless the bride tells you this is okay to do so.




Location and what the bride wants you to wear is everything!

For the bride: Most brides tend to want to stick to wearing all white, after all nothing says bride like wearing all white! And if that fails, hopefully your friends also get you an obnoxious sash and penis themed everything to let the rest of the world know it is in fact your weekend.

For the guests: The bride will usually give details on dress code for the party but if not, it is a safe bet to wear black! Rompers are my favorite option when going out (although they aren’t the easiest to go to the bathroom in) because if you like to dance, they are the best option to bust a move in!

Lingerie: If not at the bachelorette, there is usually a lingerie party for the bride. I don’t care how old or mature you are, don’t tell me that lingerie is not awkward to buy. Save yourself the embarassment and buy it online. My go to places for relatively cheap and PG (I personally stay away from gifting anything PG-13 because I’m an inner 5 year old) lingerie are always Nordstrom Rack and Hautelook. They are always running lingerie sales. Brand wise: I like Free People and Sam Edelman lingerie. It is cute and sexy… if that is possible.

Dress: Saltflat | Heels: Target | Clutch: Gigi NY | Lipstick: MAC “Diva”

Going to keep this short and sweet because it’s Friday and we all just want to get straight to the point, am I right?! I’ve been searching the internet all week to find the best sales on dresses that could be worn to a holiday event or wedding whether it’s dressy or casual! See below for my top picks under $100 or under $50! My dress (just $72) from Saltflat is an identical dupe of the Self Portrait dress for over $500! While a girl can dream, she can also be saving her pretty pennies on something more affordable (like MORE Chick-fil-a!), especially when the dupe is that good.

Several of my favorite dress retailers are already having great pre-Black Friday sales. I’m talking almost giving stuff away! ASOS and H&M are two of my go-to affordable dress shops and both are having up to 60% off right now. If you want a “splurge-worthy” dress but on major sale right now, Nordstrom or Express is where it’s at. Nordstrom is having up to 40% off and Express is having 40% off + $25 off of $100!

Under $100

Under $50

And I know no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories so don’t worry I got you girl 🙂 If you already have a dress and want to make it new, a new pair of shoes, bag and jewelry is the way to go! Linking several affordable options for you ladies!
