What I’m Lov..


  EVERYWHERE you look, someone has on a full skirt and the reason is because they truly look good on any woman. It almost reminds me of why people love peplum so much. It fits well and can be worn at any occasion. Try pairing one with a crop top for those hot days, and a sweater for those chilly Fall nights. It's a perfect piece to have in your wardrobe.

#PWATParty: Painti..


One of the highlights from last week was experiencing the activity that every woman I know loves - speed painting with WINE. Great combination huh? First of all, why is this so dang gone fun? I would have  never thought it would be and became extremely nervous that I would be terrible at this, but it turn out great!   A few local bloggers were invited to a media event to experience Painting With A Twist, the original paint and sip chain, to explore how the industry came about and how we … [Read more...]

2014 Redbook Fashion Bloggers

First of all, I want to say sorry for the photo quality. These were all taken with my Samsung Note Galaxy 3 (which I'm selling btw). NYC makes you feel like the possibilities are endless.

What to Wear On A ..

what to wear on a hot and rainy day

 This is a topic that I saw on my Twitter feed during StyleCaster #StyleChat and I thought I would share with you my thoughts on what you could wear for those rainy and hot days. And from these looks below, I'm always reaching for the casual look. Remember to wear some sort of denim so that if you do get wet it will take a while to seep through. I also recommend wearing a parka or a fabric that is water resistant, such as polyester. And nothing helps your feet stay dry like a pair of colorful … [Read more...]
