Forever 21 Friday

When it comes to navigating through the wonderuflness that is Forever 21, you either love it or hate it.  I have been shopping there since I was 13 and several people have told me I am “good” at Forever 21, Reb included. A shopaholic-induced broke girl is kinda forced to be good at Forever 21, am I right?


That being said, I have picked out some of my favorite pieces at Forever 21 right now in the name of TGIF and  inspired by this Forever 21 look here:



For the Love of Athleisure

From the runways to Coachella, the athleisure trend is alive and kickin and we couldn’t be happier. Check out this little diddy we wrote about it HERE + take a gander at some of our favorite pieces below!

This look : Top, c/o Baukjen.  Crop, Calvin Klein. Denim, c/o Mott + Bow. Sneaks, Nike. Sunnies, Quay.

In Praise of Femininity: March to Mother’s Day

Over the course of history, femininity has been confused with weakness, but everyone reading this post knows the unwavering strength that the women in their life possess and we are certainly no exception. We are both so lucky to have such inspiring women in our lives; from our mothers, sisters and best friends to generations before us. It is safe to say that there is no shortage of amazing women surrounding us! The strength that they have shown us is a driving force on this little journey that we call life.  They keep us inspired daily and The Crystal Press would not be what it is today without the love and support of these amazing women.

March Favorites

Since the first day of 2017 we have been reminding you guys (and ourselves) to not forget to take care of yourself amidst the crazy hustle and bustle of life.  Each month we have been sharing some of our favorite products with you in an attempt to make things a little less overwhelming when you go to shop.  We will reiterate again: you can never treat yourself too often! Here are some of our favorite bath, body, skin and hair care products at the moment.  You’ll probably recognize a few, as we will always have a few tried and true go-to faves.

Cali Vibes

We just spent 5 wonderful days in Los Angeles for Catherine’s bachelorette party and we got to fit so many of our favorite Cali things into those days.  If you were following along with us on insta-story and snapchat you got to see some behinds the scenes fun! If you didn’t, I won’t spoil all the details QUITE yet as we will be sharing our adventures over the next few blog posts! For now : here’s some pieces inspired by what we wore to snap some pix by the Hollywood sign.

Out West

It is no secret that I will use any excuse to go back to Los Angeles and I am so excited for Reb and I to head to the city of angels for a week. The Crystal Press has allowed this coast to coast trip to occur more often and this time around, some of my favorite girls from all over the place will be meeting us in Hollywood to celebrate my bachelorette!

Spotlight on: Spring Accessories

An outfit can be made simply by the right pair of sunnies or the perfect earrings.  Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to give your accessories an update! Here are some of our favorite things out there right now.

Red Carpet Ready

This post was sponsored by on behalf of Single Edition Media.Sure we may not all be headed to the Red Carpet this awards season, but who doesn’t want to feel red carpet ready all the time? And do it in the comfort of your home?  We are still continuing our New Year, New You theme here on The Crystal Press and thanks to some great products from Babbleboxx, we are feeling extra chic this month.  (more…)

Trend Alert: Stripes

One could argue that stripes never go out of style and we would certainly not disagree. However, these days we are seeing them everywhere. From the runway to the street, stripes are alive and well. So jump on the bandwagon or update your collection today! It’s no shocker that most of our favorite pieces are black and white but don’t be afraid to step out of the box.

We are especially digging this top (and its from Forever 21!) and this jumper would be so amazing leading into spring and summer!
