Scarf Tying Tutorial

Plus bloopers!  I can’t even begin to express how nervous I am to be doing my first vlog.  Will my readers love me or hate me?  Will they laugh or will they cry?  Will they learn something or will their brains go into active comas? Let’s find out: I had to add the bloopers.  Because […]

The Holidays + A Giveaway!

The Holidays are here (whether we like it or not.)  Walk into any store and it’s guaranteed you will find something “Holiday-ish” (and I’m not talking about Halloween!!)  This is the time that I start watching for the great deals that can be found for some of my most basic needs (i.e., return address labels & […]

Red Shoes + Red Carpet? Bad Girl, Bad.

Here is the full outfit from Fashion Night out at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.  I’m thinking there’s a really good reason why the photographer didn’t take a full body shot…….classic feet amputation: vs. Top: Old Navy Necklace: H&M Bracelets: Target, I can’t remember Clutch: Gap Pants: JCrew Belt: DIY Grosgrain Ribbon Shoes: […]

Work + DVF

My husband had his “office party” and yes, the dress was business casual.  Of course, nearly everyone dresses above and beyond the basic “anything but shorts/denim” criteria.  Not to be outdone, I pulled out one of my favorite (and when I say favorite, I mean I would cry if anything happened to this dress.)  Oh yes, […]

Fashion’s Night Out, Kansas City

I talked my sister Catherine into going to Fashion’s Night Out on the Plaza in Kansas City.  Actually, I asked her about it and without hesitation she said (read: practically screamed) yes.  To be honest with you, I occasionally (read: rarely) remembered to document the evening with photos: Bo Ling’s Almond Cookies.  It’s good Chinese […]

Diet Coke Ad, Part Deux

I’m going to be perfectly honest (not that I am not always honest, lol) when I read the email that I would be featured on the Times Square billboard, I danced like a crazy woman around my living room. Jumping up and down ensued.  Any passersby may have been tempted to call an ambulance. Of […]

The Mr.

I am not sure if I’ve ever explained FBFF, so I will do so now.  It’s just a friendly community that fashion bloggers have joined on Google.  Every Friday, there is a specific topic we are invited to discuss through our blogs, and we can link our posts here.  This Friday, the topic is advice. […]

A Quickie.

I woke up on this particular day (it was a Sunday,) and really wished I could get away with wearing sweats.  The next best thing?  A cotton skirt and cotton v-neck tee. Necklace: F21 ($1.50) Top: Target (on sale through Saturday – $6) Belt: H&M Skirt: F21 Shoes: SO (via Kohls) I love these two […]

Missoni for Target: A Review

It is my humble opinion* that this collection was all hype.  Nothing else.  The clothes were poor quality (100% polyester, come on!)  At least the scarves were 100% silk (a surprising choice because I think the shirts should have been silk as well.)  The maxi dress that was in my local store was too short.  I […]

Diet Coke Ad.

I entered a photo (ok, two photos) to the Diet Coke contest on Facebook.  If you have time, feel free to pop on over and give my photos 5 stars (you might have to like the page, you might have to hit the “enter to win” button, but have no fear, you don’t actually have […]

Guest Blogging and Cinemagraphs

If you want to see me wink at you, head over to Relatable Style for my very first guest post!  I love cinemagraphs!    I found this sweet one at Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg’s blog.  You have to check out their photos.  You will never want to have another still photograph again!

Mi Familia

That’s about all the Spanish I know.  Ten years ago today, I was heading into work when I heard the news on the radio.  I got to work (and though the idea was to keep working, to let terrorists know that we would not let them stop us – no one in the office was […]

Rockies in the Summertime

The celebration was held in Ft. Collins, CO.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love the mountains?  I swear, my smile got bigger and bigger the closer I got to those Rockies!  Even the traffic couldn’t phase me!  I couldn’t wait to get out of the car and take a nice deep breath of that crisp refreshing mountain air.  […]

Mixed Matches (Say That Three Times.)

I hate making decisions.  Which is why I wore two different pairs of shoes with this dress.  Maybe it’s Mix and Match, or maybe it’s I Change My Mind Like I Change My Shoes Day.  The only things I could agree upon were my dress, my jacket and my hair (and my hair really had no other […]

Dumpster Diving

While there was no actual dumpster diving, there was an industrial sized dumpster willing to serve as my backdrop:   Necklace: Twisted combination – Target + a gift from The Mr. Top: JCrew Jacket: Old Navy (buy it)* Bracelet: Forever21 Belt: DIY grosgrain ribbon Jeans: JCrew (buy them) Shoes: Forever21 I know, by now you are […]
