Shoes, Scarves And Spice

 Fall and winter are by far my favorite time of year. I love the flavors and scents of fall like apple cider, cinnamon and nutmeg, and peppermint. I do peppermint all year round but I love it a little bit more in the cold. I love cold weather. My city has what I consider to be best smell in the fall and winter. It’s a cross between roasting green chile, wood burning stoves, and that quintessential crisp fall air smell. I just love it!  Of course though my favorite parts of the season are fashion followed closely by food and drink....more
I'm right there with you. I love this time of year.more

Pretty In Pink

If I Were Andy Sachs...

03rd November, 2014. 5:01pmNaBloPoMo, November 3 Prompt:Write about an amazing imaginary brand or organization you’d love to work with. What would their pitch to you look like? What would your post say?When I was in high school, the only thing I want to do is publish one poem on MEG magazine - a local teen glossy I love. As I entered college and was introduce to the World Wide Web, reaching my dream had been so easy. I was, in fact, given the chance not just to publish an article in the magazine, but work for them as an intern as well. However, being part of the team didn't last long. It was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever done.After my stint in MEG, and after seeing The Devil Wears Prada about a million times (okay, I was exaggerating. It was just about ten times), I knew I should at least try passing my résumé and try my luck on the magazine, but I didn't. I never even tried. I eventually, became a writer, of course, but it was never how I imagined I would have become.But what if the tables are to be turned and they suddenly asked for my help? What if the current Editor-in-Chief came up to me one day and invited me to be part of their team? Will I say yes? Will I accept the invitation?...more

Maxi Madness

Happy Friday - or as it is appropriately referred to on Instagram "Fri-YAY"! It is starting to get cooler {finally} but still not really that cold.  So a strapless maxi is still perfectly acceptable!  And how could I say no to black and white chevron? ...more

A Bra for Different Types of Dresses

Some of the most amazing dresses simply weren't designed with traditional bras in mind. Although it's considered chic in some quarters to show off your pretty bra, it can also look downright tacky when "a strap [is] sticking out from the back of a racerback dress." (1) To keep it chic, consider some of the following bras and support solutions to look your best in those amazing dresses. ...more
