2014,March 27

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
