Welcome to my cr8tive wanderlust. A mix of vintage, bohemian, gypsy and trendy fashions, graphic tees and tanks, jeans, eclectic or hand made jewelry and home decor items. I love to bargain hunt and share my findings with others. Enjoy my adventures and fashion, home decor lust...
Show your support by ordering some of the below items with proceeds being donated to Susan G. Komen, and the other items being donated in the memory of Emily Vasquez to Banner MD Anderson.
#Girlstrong, as ladies we need to always stick together through thick and thin, whether we are friends or strangers, throw away any animosity, hatred, gossip, lies, conflict or drama to support one another and empower each other always. There is room for everyone to do good, succeed and grow. As the post I see often on social media says, Throw Kindness around like confetti. Everyone can use and give a little kindness.
My lovely pink agate necklace is made by the talented Adam Rabbit, you can find her amazing creations on Etsy at the link below and similar necklaces at Bohemian Vibe Boutique also.
My necklace was from her mystery necklace sale a couple weeks back, she does have similar items and other unique hand made gem, quartz and crystal pieces you will love. You can also find her pink agate necklaces at the link below for Bohemian Vibe Boutique or you can message her to special order one if you don't see any listed in the shop. The bracelet below is the item that proceeds are being donated this month for Breast Cancer Awareness in the memory of Emily Vasquez. I am trying to focus this post on the items that are available to purchase that proceeds will be donated to the cause.
(You can also see my Lokai Hero pink bracelet, link is below.)
Adam Rabbit Jewelry is also offering for a limited time a special on her amazing pink agate slice bangle bracelet for $15 and proceeds will be donated in the name of Emily Vasquez, one of her dear friends mom, donations will be sent to Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center to help women pay for medical treatments. Amazing cause and in the memory of the mother of an inspiring and sweet woman, Stephanie.
I have worked with Stephanie while working with the above boutique which I have featured previously here on my blog and social media. In honor of her mother Emily Vasquez they will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the above gorgeous necklace in Emily's name to Banner MD Anderson. The money will help with grants for women who cannot afford treatments that are not covered by insurance. Let's try to help those in need and support one another in times like these. My heart goes out to anyone and everyone who has battled with or have known someone who has had to battle with breast cancer, or any form of cancer for that matter. I lost my father 14 years ago to Leukemia and I know losing a loved one is the hardest thing I have ever been through. You can read more about her story on Instagram under both Adam Rabbit's listing and Bohemian Vibe Boutiques. I will add their Instagram links below at the bottom of this post.
Another great item to purchase with proceeds being donated to Susan G. Komen is this limited edition Lokai bracelet, only available for the month of October. The Susan G. Komen foundation is an amazing foundation and these bracelets are a great reminder or symbol of strength and balance in life.
Lokai will donate to Susan G. Komen One Dollar ($1.00) for each Pink Bracelet sold between September 13th, 2015 and October 31st, 2015 with a minimum
Thank you all for taking a moment to pass by and read this, I hope everyone will take a moment to check out these amazing items and hopefully take part in purchasing an item to help fight this cause. Bless you all, xoxo

@Livelokai ** To clarify I truly mean what I wrote in the first paragraph, even those who have hurt me and done or said horrible things I have moved on and forgiven. I have no room for hurt, anger, sadness, bitterness or hatred. I have only love and kindness in my heart. I wish the best for everyone and want to see everyone do good. From the bottom of my heart. Kindness is always the best way and will always be stylish. You really never know what anyone is going through in life and when I was going through some truly hard times with my health and struggling I was kicked over and over again when I was down. It was not easy but in the end it made me so much stronger.

I am placing an order for some fall items for my own closet that I will be featuring in a couple weeks, I will have photos and style some of my favorite pieces I am posting photos of below with my own pieces I already own. I love to pick up a few new hot trends for each season to freshen up my looks and keep my style fashion forward without breaking the bank. Below are a few styles I really love and there are many more where those came from so be sure to head over to take a peak for yourself.
Love these black fringe ankle booties with chunky heel. These will be fabulous with leggings, skinny jeans and flares. I also love them with a tunic or dress layered with a baggy sweater or button down top.
These are a little dressier ankle bootie a with chain detail and a thinner heel. Love these to dress up the perfect pair of flare jeans or cropped rolled up skinnies. Also will look hot with pencil skirts and dresses. For the prices all their boots are amazing deals and super cute.
These ankle boots are perfection with brown strap and buckle detail. These will work with anything basically and love brown for fall. The price will shock you, not even going to tell you go take a look for yourself. All these boots are priced so good you can't beat it and with my additional discount you can afford to get some other great items to update your fall wardrobe.
These are my favorite, I love tall boots and don't think you can ever have enough. I have a similar pair that are flat bottom and been looking for a high heel version. I love the quilted design and buckle detail. These were in my cart as soon as I saw them didn't even have to think twice and the price is just perfect. These are going to be worn with leggings, skinny jeans, dresses and skirts all fall through winter. Love them.
Every hot pair of boots need a pair of tall socks or leg warmers. These add that extra little detail to your outfit and for those who live in the cooler areas they give you that extra warmth also. They have a crochet lace trim top and button down detail. Love the color choices all fabulous for fall and winter.
I adore plaid for fall and winter, this plaid poncho style kimono or cardigan is perfection and those colors are perfect for mixing and matching with the neutral fall tones.
Color blocking and stripes are really in trend this season so this top caught my eye as soon as I refreshed my page, it is a great color combo and I love the wrap front detail. I have seen a lot of this style in magazines and stores lately and love the look.
Last up a great accessory for fall and winter are scarves. This one I love with the fringe detail and buttons. They have many styles, colors and options for scarves along with sweaters, ponchos and kimono style cardigans. Again I recommend going to take a look for yourself. I was really pleased with the new selections and these are just a few items I selected to highlight this evening.

Make a Faith Statement tee with the Conqueror necklace by Precious Heart Shop paired with an animal print pencil skirt from Express. My skirt is a few years old so I could not find the same style, but graphic tees and tanks look amazing with all pencil skirts, don't be afraid to mix a bold pattern or colorful pattern with your graphic tees for a stylish and professional look.
Wednesday was a paisley and proem kind of day. Wearing an old top I have with some ruffle and studs from Tory Burch I believe many many moons ago, Old Navy boyfriend jeans and a solid tank from Target. My gorgeous necklace is made by BlackBlackMoon and was purchased off the eBay store below, you can find this necklace and more items by the same designer on this site. If you mention my blog she will be happy to give you a discount on your order. Just tell her Melissa from DLiteful Trends sent you, or you saw her amazing items on my blog.
Hate mirror shots but had to try on the jeans sent to me by Silver Jeans Co for their new dare to flare campaign for fall. Can't wait to style these with lots of fun fall pieces. Love how they fit and the flare is just right, has that vintage 70's vibe. You can find a pair at
My fall hair color, got this done back in June and love it so keeping it for the fall. Love the orange ombré with my blonde natural color with highlights. Pravana hair color and Olaplex three step treatment is what keeps my hair looking amazing. Today wore a loose braid with some curled shorter, front pieces for an easy out the door look. Tomorrow getting my color touched up for my cruise in less then three weeks will be sure to take some pics to add.
As promised pics of my hair:
I only did a touch up on my roots or regrowth of the blonde the coral is still the same. Will be touching that up when I get back from my cruise. I actually like how it looks now that some of the color has faded a little.
Sunglasses are some older Tory Burch glasses I got a few years ago for my birthday.
Tee is Pam&Gela, I scored it off eBay for under $25 you can find them on their website, Kimono is a black floral kimono from Fashion Junkee and jeans are boyfriend style by Silver Jeans. Purse is a black fringe Boho bag from Bohemian Vibe boutique.
Lokai site is above for bracelets, the Wild Lokai was Limited Edition and is no longer available but you can order the Pink Lokai for October and the Classic anytime.
My shoes I got in April on clearance at Walmart, they are Toms inspired camouflage sneakers I paid $5.99 for, and they are so comfortable. I actually think they are more comfy then my real Toms but don't tell anyone I said that lol.
Hope you all enjoy my week of outfits, I was pretty laid back this week but my style is either graphic tops and jeans, or skirts, then some gypsy boho style skirts, kimonos and dresses. I have lots of cute fall styles coming soon. It is still in the 90's here so I have not gotten to shoot the sweaters and boots I wanted to, but will be wearing some shorter length dresses with lighter weight sweaters in the next couple of weeks with ankle boots, because I am really wanting to show off some amazing pieces I have found online for some incredible deals. I love my trapeze dresses, Free People sweaters and some amazing knee height socks for winter. Can't wait to share, till then have a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow is the FSU vs UM game, so go Seminoles. Hoping my Noles win tomorrow night, huge in state rivalry game and we usually go to this game but it's in Tallahassee this year and we could not make it, a little sad but I will be home cheering them on. Thank you for passing by and thank you to everyone for all your support this week, makes me smile to see everyone passing by and checking out my posts. Make sure to leave comments and let me know what you think of the new layout, links, and posts. XOXO
Quickly if you saw my post last week or the end of the previous week about the boho and rocker looks inspired from Pinterest posts, I got my trapeze Free People inspired dress in for $8.99 and styled it for now with a $9.98 sweater from Walmart tied to the side using a Nita Angeletti cuff and scarf. My Free people crochet back blue gray sweater should arrive any day along with another similar dress for another look.
Link is on previous post to eBay shop that carries these in multi colors for $8.99.
Was excited to find these cute sweaters at Walmart for under $10 in many stylish colors for fall and winter. Paired it with my Precious Hearts Designs necklace which matches amazing.
Used Nita's infinity scarf and then the scarf cuff I used to tie up the side. Can't wait to wear this look with tall knee high socks and boots. Enjoy and just wanted to sneak this in quick in case you missed my prior post the link is;
