Scarf Game on Fleek

Scarves in the winter make complete and total sense. You’re chilled to the bone cold, and you need that extra feeling of bundled-up-ness (Is that a word? Well it is today). But I’m just going to come…

Turn Your Bedroom Into A Dressing Room

The best part about getting new clothes is shopping. Searching. Digging through rack after rack until you find the perfect item. It’s the chase really.  But what if you need something in a hurry? Or…

Dear Mother Nature – I know you’ve taught us that April showers bring May flowers, but don’t you think we’ve suffered enough this winter? Do you think maybe you might consider skipping the rain part…

White doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to play the supporting role in your outfit of the day. No one likes basic. I could borrow my boyfriend’s white undershirt if I wanted basic. You can have…

Pattern Party

I’m having a pattern party on the blog today and you’re all invited! Mixing prints has always been equal parts fun and challenge for me. It takes a vision, a little bit of creativity, and…

Coloring in the Snow

Today’s photo shoot perfectly captures my feelings about winter and fresh snow – fun for a few minutes and then I’m really over it. By now I’ve worn my knit beanies to death, and my blanket scarves arguably…

You’re Making Me Blush

You don’t need a crystal ball to predict that pastels will be big for spring … especially because Badgley Mischka alluded to this on the runway last fall. Our stereotypical sartorial calendar tells us brights for summer, warm tones for fall,…
