Hey guys! So if you follow me on Snapchat (@hellofashblog) you already heard about my little saga, but if you don’t our garage was broken into and my two favorite designer bags were stolen 🙁 My new Givenchy and my tan Celine I got a couple months ago, both gone. You’re probably wondering why I keep my bags in the garage, well they are usually in my car, because I switch them out quite a bit, but I pulled everything out for the blogger sale this weekend and just left them in my garage. It’s funny on Sunday I saw them sitting there and consciously thought I need to take them in but my arms were full and by the time I got in the house I forgot.

Yesterday I went to get something out of one of them and they were gone! It’s so crazy because I had my Chloe bag, my Rebecca Minkoff backpack, a brand new dress with the tags still on it, a pair of Louboutins and a few other things all sitting right by the ones that were stolen and they only took my two favorite bags. Needless to say I was kind of bummed! We filed a police report and the officer I think thought I was speaking a foreign language. He was like what was taken? I responded “My tan Celine and nude Givenchy bag” He asks: “What color are they?” I repeat, “one is tan the other is nude” He’s like ohhh I thought that was the name of the bag. So what color is that exactly. My face is just like blank stare. This doesn’t give me high hopes he will even know what to look for lol. Anyways thankfully I have a million pictures of them from blog posts so they know what they look like. Honestly since they aren’t even sold in Utah if I see anyone with them I’m gonna be like hey where’d you get that bag hahaha. Just kidding, I probably wouldn’t have the guts to do it if I actually saw them but you know I would be creeping.

One thing the officer said is that they have had a lot of things stolen out of people’s garages lately. I used to leave the garage door open during the day while I’m home so he said it could have easily gotten stolen then. He said a lot of people just drive past see something and grab it real quick. So learn from me!! DONT LEAVE YOUR GARAGE DOOR OPEN! I mean I’m not 100% sure that’s what happened but the officer said it happens multiple times a week they get calls about stolen items from garages. Anyways, thanks to all you guys that shared funny stories and sent messages who had similar bad experiences. I feel your pain!

Anyways, about today’s board – one of my favorite ways to wear the color pink is to toughen it up by pairing it with something a little more boyish – the balance between rough and tumble and feminine never fails. Grey instantly tones down the color pink and I love the effect of the two shades worn together.  Another way to toughen up a girly silhouette is with a boxy tee or a bomber jacket. Worn with a classic midi pencil skirt (OBSESSED!) or full mini skirt, it’s a perfect mix. To balance it out on each end, I also love the look of a baseball hat with heels.

Three of my favorite stores are running a great promotion right now – between 35-40% off online orders only at Gap, Banana Republic, and Old Navy with code BEST valid through tomorrow. These shoes are one of my favorites on sale. I love the cut –  I already own a similar pair to the blush heel but the other colors it comes in are so tempting. Below are a few more of my favorites from the sale.

    I saw your SnapChat last night Christine and my heart just BREAKS for you!!! I bought myself the black Antigona in April while in Italy (I live in Canada) and so I can just imagine how awful this feels x 2 🙁 🙁 🙁

    I’m so glad you got a few outfit posts and Instagram shots with the bag, it was so beautiful and I was so stoked you got SUCH a great deal on it for yourself. Really sorry to hear this shi++y news 🙁

    I’m so sorry to hear about your bags! That’s so incredibly frustrating and having anything taken, big or small, is such a violation. I hope they turn up!

    Love a pink and gray combo. So feminine and flattering. I’m especially coveting that gray jacket!! I hope you have a better day 🙂

    OMG what a bummer! I feel so mad for you about your stolen bags! I really hope by some miracle they’ll be recovered and the thief will get what he/she deserves!

    Wow I am sorry to hear that. What an awful thing to do to another person; to steal anything that belongs to someone else is so low. I really do hope the person(s) get caught. I’m a huge believer in karma. In the end, they are just things that can be replaced. Xx

    Everything about that room is perfect!

    I heard about your break in via snap chat and could not believe it! That is terrible! So sorry that happened, but glad they didn’t take anything else around. On another note, love the pink and gray ensembles! <3

    OMG that completely sucks! I don’t even know what I’d do if that happened to me. Especially such expensive bags like that. It’s like, you basically stole jewelry, with a value of $2-4K. I’d probably cry and then never want to buy another expensive purse ever again. I’m so sorry that happened to you!

    Oh my goodness! That’s horrible that your two favs were stolen! I had a similar experience with police when my car was broken into. Best to think your bags will not come back T_T.

    On to the rest of your post though. I looooove pink! Manning it up is a nice way to avoid looking a bit crazy when wearing pink and not being seven years old. v(^_^)
