Transitions

The past year has brought many changes in my life. I find myself entering a new phase which I am all for, because it means I am evolving. This blog will no longer focus on only fashion, although fashion will still be in some of the content in the future. I want to be more relatable of a blogger to my readers, and to people everywhere. Posting about $3,500 YSL handbags and Louboutins isn’t really relatable.

I will write more about this soon. I did want to give a heads up to my followers who may have noticed the change in name and tagline. I am very excited about this change and I think you guys will love it as well! Until next time….xoxo

Pantone Color of the Year 2015: Marsala

I always seek out the Pantone Color of the Year every January. The Pantone website is a great tool for researching color trends as well, if you are an avid fashionista as myself. I must say, Marsala isn’t my favorite color. Hopefully it will grow on me, because I can guarantee that we will see it everywhere this year!

How To Wear Converse Stylishly

If you do not have a pair of Chuck Taylor‘s in your closet, I would suggest getting a pair ASAP. These sneakers are an American icon, and can be seen on a multitude of personalities from hipsters and rockers to party girls and preps.  There are a shit load of color choices, but if you are stuck on which color to go with first the classic white is a must. They are so inexpensive that you can add more colors to your closet if you like without pulling a Carrie Bradshaw and breaking the bank on shoes. You will wear these sneakers for not only seasons to come, but years to come! They never go out of style. Below you will find a just a few looks that can be conquered with your Chuck Taylor’s. Enjoy!

Fall Flats: Charlotte Olympia

I have been wanting a pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes for awhile now, and lucked up this weekend when I found some at a local boutique on major sale (at Coplon’s for you fellow locals). Retail price is $695 and I got them for $175. I couldn’t wait til it’s technically fall, so I’m rocking them today. I love the kitty faces on my toes!!
