I’m a sucker for red, white & blue, anything somewhat patriotic, and because my favorite holiday happens to be the 4th of July when I saw this adorable dress last season I knew that I needed it! Now some people are taking the “not so literal or obvious approach” to 4th of July outfits. But I say why not? It’s the day your outfit can be a little cutsey have fun with it, make it “you” and show your patriotism through your outfit!
I was so excited when I recently received an email from T.J.maxx congratulating me on winning the Maxxinista of the month! I entered the contest shortly after I did my “interview outfit” post and submitted my photo because the top was from TJMaxx. A month later I was notified my outfit was chosen for the month and would receive a $500 gift card! Smiling from ear to ear when I read this email I began to think of all the amazing things I could buy!! When that gift card came in the mail I could not get out the door fast enough to go shopping.
This dress is one of my finds that I am LOVING, for only $39 I had to buy it, it’s the perfect length for my tall frame and the slits on the side make it look modern and easy. This is just one of the items I purchased, get ready for many more outfit posts of items I buy with my gift card!
I have been interviewing a lot recently for jobs and I have been trying to mix up my career outfit options. I am combining my tops and accessories with office basics. I try to keep it colorful and unique since the field I am in is more creative. I thought I would share one of my interview outfits with you all and I will be sure to post more soon!
Top: Cynthia Rowley – T.J.Maxx, Sweater: J.Crew , Pants: Banana Republic (They have long lengths!), Necklace: LOFT (old similar here), Watch: Kate Spade, Bracelet: Kate Spade, Shoes: Target, Bag: Kate Spade (similar).
Easter is just four days away and if you are going to church, brunch or a bbq show up in style with the perfect outfit for the occasion.

I recently received an email about a new website called Storemate. I have been discovering what it is all about and I have found that it is similar to Pinterest, but for shoppers, bloggers and stylists. The website is still in beta so there are things that are changing and developing. So far I am liking what I am seeing, you can curate your own stores from things you find online, on blogs, or on Pinterest. It is a great way to build a new following, you can even store your outfit posts so people can shop your look from your blog. There are so many possibilities for exposure and not to mention it is fun! To see how it works you can check out my store front here, and see my collection for spring. Try it out for yourself at Storemate.com and to see more about how it works check out the video I posted below.
I love GILES & BROTHER jewelry not only because it is my last name, but because of the classic, fresh, yet simplistic design of their pieces. The only thing stopping me from buying all of the GILES & BROTHER accessories is the price point, which is out of my budget with prices ranging from $50 – $300. Needless to say when I heard about the JewelMint collaboration with GILES & BROTHER I was ecstatic. The same style accessories but at the JewelMint price point ($29.99!!), it can’t get much better than that! Below are some of my favorite pieces from the collaboration, hurry before they are gone!
Paris fashion week is my favorite fashion week by far. Mostly because I have a love affair with Paris but also because some of the greatest fashion houses in the world are in Paris, including the one and only Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld has been the designer of Chanel since before I was born, but if there is one thing that I love most about his design, it is his attention to detail. The recent collection for Fall 2013 RTW was a great example of his attention to details through the perfectly curated textiles, jewelry and accessories. When I saw the boots draped with chains, globe shaped bags and the fingerless spiked gloves I became giddy! Karl is a genius, with that said here are some of my favorite detail shots from this past week in Paris, hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Continue reading
