Dressing up to go shopping is part of the fun! Shopping is an experience that you play a big part in creating. If you are dressed nicely, you'll feel more confident of yourself. When you enter a store feeling self confident, you'll be able to chat with the staff, who should be willing to talk about the brand and products with you in a way that is educational and helps inform your purchases. It's also important to be level headed about shopping and spend money on a few items that you'll love for years to come instead of feeling rushed to make purchases (continue reading...)
The hammered silk skirt was made using a placket behind the measured ruching. Inspired by the trendy cord ruching that I am seeing everywhere but wanting something a little different and more refined, I came up with a new technique that looks especially incredible rendered in hammered silk. The silk is tacked onto a placket at measured intervals, leaving a precisely measured amount of ease between each attachment that causes the fabric to evenly drape. The skirt has the measured ruching along the right side of the skirt, lifting the ankle length skirt asymmetrically to show the leg while adding volume and dimension to the skirt.

Tens of thousands of elephants are killed illegally every year for their prized ivory husk. Criminal organizations are at the forefront of this crisis, creating problems for not only the elephants, but also for fighting wars and terrorism. Save the Elephants, a research & conservation organisation, was founded in 1993 with a dedication to fighting the elephant crisis. The charity's mission is to "secure a future for elephants and sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live, to promote man’s delight in their intelligence and the diversity of their world, and to develop a tolerant relationship between the two species."
A following excerpt from the Save the Elephant's website describes the crisis perfectly: "At least 33,000 elephants are killed for their tusks each year in a devastating wave of poaching that is sweeping across Africa. This elephant genocide is driven by demand for ivory as a symbol of wealth or prestige
If you're thinking you can't get any great gifts under $100 for the girl friend or boss that seems to have it all, think again. I complied a gift guide of my personal favorite designer items along with tried and true products that are sensible and fun. Each of the products has been researched and compared to other brands over the years as I tried to find things that I really wanted to spend my hard earned money on.
I carefully curated the list to make it easy for you to shop for close friends and people that you barely know. Regardless of job, income status or taste, most women above the age of eighteen would get excited about the following gifts, which are in order from lowest price to highest price:
Layering outfits with my favorite blazers, faux furs and sweaters is one of my favorite things about the fall and winter time. Working with rich hues, plenty of texture and layers makes it easy to turn simple pieces into a luxe, styled look. I'm not a fan of the colder weather, so I turn to layering outfits as a way of dealing with the seasonal depression that always sneaks in. It's my way of having fun and creating pretty things to look at when the rest of the world looks pretty
A crisp white button down shirt is an essential garment in any woman’s wardrobe, especially during the summer. The classic white shirt is a modest piece that can easily be rolled up and unbuttoned to fit the personality of the individual wearing the piece. I personally have several variations of white button down shirts in my closet: a crisp cotton, a soft silk shirt for dressy events, and a more casual piece that I wear as a coverup while lounging by the pool or on weekends. While a white button down is far from a groundbreaking style, it’s a solid
If there's one thing that makes me feel like I'm officially on vacation, it's being on a dock at a harbor with a row of million dollar yachts. None of the yachts are mine, but it doesn't matter the pretty boats gently rocking in the breeze remind me that I'm far away from my office. Far away from any dishes I need to wash, or laundry I need to fold. For now, all I need to do is not fall in the water. So far I've
Headbands have become rather popular since they appeared in several recent major runway shows. I keep getting Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl) vibes from several of the headband wearing fashion bloggers I follow on Instagram, making me even more excited that the show is getting a reboot (expected in the spring of 2020, who's watching with me?!). If styled correctly, headbands have a way of co
