Simple Costumes

I remember the day I first heard about Savers.  They had just moved into an old space that used to be a grocery store and I knew absolutely nothing about Savers, although a quick google search revealed it was a thrift store.  A few weeks later, I saw a picture posted on Facebook of a […]

Pastel // 5 Ways

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, PEOPLE® and Real Simple®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #SpringintoMeTime http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV“ I have loved glossy magazines for as long as I can remember.  As a young girl (a budding teenager, desperate for things like boobs and real […]

Denim on Denim

I’m talking the denim on denim trend, perfect for Spring and five simple tips for mastering it.   I’ve seen the occasional photo pop-up in my Pinterest feed – a perfectly put-together woman, chic-ly (let’s pretend that’s a real word, mkay?) long legs gracefully crossing the street (or the enviable thigh gap – my thighs […]

Polished Pieces

It’s Love Time!  Single, dating, new relationships, old relationships, marriage, whatever your status is, it’s time to celebrate love.  If you’re lucky (and it’s what you were hoping for) then you will end up with a little paper box in varying shapes and colors, filled with sparkly gemstones that have been polished to “Where my sunglasses […]

Trend: Fringe

A few months ago, a friend sent a text admitting to being tempted by a fringe covered handbag. <gasp>  Just kidding!  With the rise of trendy music festival Coachella, the tail-end of the popular Roaring Twenties a la The Great Gatsby and Sean Kelly’s stunning fringe masterpieces on Project Runway, fringe is in!  Don’t worry […]

LITTLE BLACK DRESS I

The Litte Black Dress (that’s worth every cent) It’s KCFW this week, and there is nothing I love more than a dresscode (the only time I’m willing to be overlook being told what to do lol!)  In other news, after seeing the pictures I’m thinking I need to let the hem out on this one……..time […]

Diamonds & Tea & a Giveaway

I’ve been a big fan of stacking bracelets, and I’ve got an entire drawer full of bracelets in every size, shape and color.  Some are trendy – super cheap and disposable; some are priceless treasures I will keep for a lifetime.  Sadly (is it really that sad?) the arm party has run out of booze […]

How to Style a Knit Dress

I was recently sent this knit dress from Monroe and Main, aptly named “Knot Your Mother’s Dress”, to review.  Mostly, I’m just excited for spring to hit.  I’m tired of the Polar Vortex (seriously, we named it.)  I love a good knit dress, but I’m not one to let them stand on their own.   Yes, […]

Recycled Fibers: Repreve Green Beanie

When I was asked to review Repreve’s Green Beanie, made from recycled fiber, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. These recycled fibers (made from recycled plastic bottle products) make it easy to #TurnItGreen with things we can wear and use on a daily basis. In elementary school, we would spend the entire month of April […]

DIY Party Crowns

I live in a house full of testosterone.  I have to fight it however I can.  With things like girly DIY party crowns.  And chocolate.  I also live in a home with three boys, a husband and everything that goes with it – the laundry, the dishes, cooking and cleaning, insert more time-sucking stuff here.  […]

Polished Wednesdays: Plaid Scarf Style

The latest trend (and the easiest) this season is plaid scarves.  If you’re lucky, you snagged the under $10 Forever21 scarf I blogged about two years ago (follow that link for some totally awesome pictures I keep around to remind me why I should NEVER EVER GIVE INTO THE URGE TO ROCK BANGS AGAIN, hahahaha; […]

Organize Your Accessories, Part 1

 I love nothing more than accessories; jewels, pearls, golds, sterling silvers, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, you name it.  Organizing my jewelry, especially necklaces and earrings, is another matter!  Coco Chanel is famous for advising that you should take off one accessory before leaving the house.  I say do whatever makes you feel fabulous (unless that […]
