Post image for Old Navy NFL Collection

The NFL preseason is finally here which means that the regular season is just around the corner!  I'm starting to think about game day looks for the upcoming season, so I decided to check out what NFL apparel some of the retailers have to offer.  Old Navy usually has some good basic team tees; nothing too fancy, but definitely pieces that you can work with to create your own game day look.  The best part is that they are very reasonably priced.  Here's a look at some of the Old Navy NFL tees for women, men, and boys.     I really like the simple team logo on the men's tee.  I Read More ...

Post image for What I Wore – Floral Ankle Strap Heels

There's a funny story behind these heels.  Remember when I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico Memorial Day weekend with my best friend, Alexia?  Well, our first day there, we were out walking looking for dinner.  We both had on out cute but comfortable shoes, because we didn't know how much walking we would do before we decided where we wanted to eat.  I had on a pair of my favorite caged sandals from Marshalls, the tan Nine West sandals, and Alexia wore her cute wedge sandals that she got from an outdoors store.  Being from an outdoors store, you just know that they will be durable and very comfortable for Read More ...

The Victoria's Secret 2014 PINK Collegiate Collection is here!  All of the same schools are back plus this year many new schools have been added to the list: Baylor Boise State Brown Columbia Fresno State Georgetown University of Hawaii Iowa State University of Minnesota Northwestern University Oxford University University of Pennsylvania San Diego State Southern Methodist University Vanderbilt University   My favorite piece in the new collection is the crewneck tee (the Texas Longhorns tee above).  You can't go wrong with a simple tee.  I should also note that some schools' apparel can only be ordered online, while the others can be found online and in-store.  What do you think Read More ...

Black and White Dress (Max and Cleo/Belk – old) :: Black Heels (David Tutera c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) Black Clutch (Dillards – old) :: Necklace (Target) :: Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   Spring is usually the time for many special occasions, mainly proms, graduations, and weddings.  In April, I attended two special occasions – my friend Rebecca's wedding in Raleigh and The Garner Agency's Charlotte Fab 50 event at Bubble at the Epicentre.  I thought about buying something new to wear to the wedding, but decided to shop my closet instead.  Great idea, Tamara (I don't normally talk to myself.  I promise.)!  I had this black and white dress in Read More ...

The Look For Less – Ivory Handbag

2014,March 27
Thumbnail image for The Look For Less – Ivory Handbag

I was shooting with my photographer, Lindsay, recently and she said, "You have the best handbags." That compliment made me realize how handbags have become my thing.  I think I go through phases with clothes and accessories.  At one point I was all about cardigans. Don't get me wrong, I still love cardigans.  They are great for the spring and summer when you don't need a jacket or coat, but want something to cover your arms (they are also great for cold offices).  Then I was all about belts.  Now, it's handbags and I really want an ivory handbag because it's perfect to carry all year long (don't believe the "you Read More ...

The Look For Less – Multi-Color Print Dress

I don't know about where you live, but the weather here in Charlotte has been a tease.  One day it's a warm 70 degrees and the next it's a bitterly cold 32 degrees.  The warm days have my mind stuck on spring temperatures and thus, spring fashion.  Recently, I came across a beautiful multi-color print dress on a blog and now I'm on the hunt for some multi-color dresses and skirts.  The dress on the blog is quite pricey; way more than I'm willing to spend, so I challenged myself to find the look for less (Side note: When I was studying for the bar exam, The Look For Less was a Read More ...

What I Wore – It’s Not All Black And White

Black Sweater (Banana Republic) | White Jeans (Target) | Pink Tote (Marshalls) Black Boots (Nine West/DSW) | Gold Necklace (Target)   I teased via Instagram (BlitzAndGlam) a couple of weeks ago that these neon totes at Marshalls were giving me spring fever.  I simply could not leave the store without one.  This tote is definitely a quick fix for these cold, dreary, winter days.  And this sweater.  You thought it was just a plain, black sweater.  It's not.  Much like these jeans.     I sometimes have some other random stuff to say, so I decided to start shooting short videos where I can talk about those things.  Here's the first video with Read More ...
