For The Love Of Leopard

Today’s topic: leopard print. The trend of the season? If you ask me, absolutely. But if I’m being honest, leopard has always been a staple for me. It’s my neutral....

Wearing My Muggle Clothes Under My Quidditch Robes

I’m channeling one of my favorite fictional characters of all time in this velvet number. That’s right! I drew my inspiration for this look from The Boy Who Lived - Mr. Harry Potter himself! It is no secret that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan - I have read and re-read every book and own all of the movies. It is the story of my childhood that I have grown up with and continue to cherish as an adult. I know I am not alone in this. But using the characters from J. K. Rowling’s world or witchcraft and wizardry as sartorial inspiration is definitely something new to me.

Black Friday Gift Guide

Sometimes (ahem... every year) Black Friday sales can be super overwhelming. So this year I have combed through the chaos of sale notifications being forced at us. And I have narrowed it down to the best of the best (and even picked my favorite pieces!). Stress free shopping from the comfort of your couch! And don't forget about the leftovers - I'm having apple crumble and a grapefruit for breakfast! I hope that everyone had a safe, beautiful holiday spent with the ones you love.

Consider Velvet Slippers & Dreamy Dresses This Holiday Season

I will be sharing more holiday recipes, shopping guides and most importantly heartfelt words over the next few weeks. But today, I bring you this dress. It is the unicorn of dresses, the holy grail if you will. I dare you to put on this dress and not twirl. HAH! I think it might actually be impossible not to feel like the belle of the ball in this dress.

Fashion Wovens For Life

Happy Saturday guys!! I have been having a love affair with fashion wovens for awhile now. Normally my favorites involve dramatic sleeve details or interesting necklines. While this shirt has neither of those things - it has something that most of my favorite fashion wovens do not - a kick a** back detail. Oh, and it’s *cropped*. I have worn this top dressed up - paired with a leather midi skirt or - wait for it - a pink feather skirt. And I have also worn it dressed down with jeans and a bomber jacket or my beloved camo jacket. I think that is one of my favorite things about woven tops with an over the top flair - their versatility!!
