While roaming endlessly around a boutique, you spy a statement style that screams perfection. You and this fancy little number have a stare down, and it seems to have won. The colors are perfect, design is flawless, and the shiny gold trim reels you in. Yep, it happened to me, and this time I fell for it. It was a fabulous, winter white, moto jacket with gold studs and it had me at hello. No discipline. None whatsoever.
Spotted on a Friday night…a rosy midriff t-shirt (similar here), that I swooned over for a hot second, which was long enough to purchase. A perfect look in mind, with a rosy print that I imagined would transition well into spring, when paired with a leather skirt, velvet ankle boots and well,…the look flopped. It was all so perfect in my head, and then an epic fail.
Five minutes to shop, and you’re scrambling. You need to quickly put a look together and you’re out of ideas, with no time to spare. Panic mode, right? You’ve been in the situation…I’m sure you have. You just can’t seem to find that one, fabulous “must have” piece, that would make dressing for your evening event oh-so-simple. If your stumped, and can’t find what your looking for, stop, drop, and simplify. You’d be surprised with what you can create with just one piece.
If you had to define your style in one word, what would it be? Edgy? Classy? Feminine? Tricky, isn’t it? For me, it most definitely is. I can’t give you just one word to define my style. In the summer, it’s an array of floral prints, multiple shades of lace, all tied into a feminine look. However, during the fall and winter, I definitely add an edgy vibe to my look. This winter, I’ll finally admit it. I own more black in my closet than I ever thought possible. I’ve caved.
Or is it? More lace, more beading, more chain, more crystal? Yes, please! More is more, so let’s live it up a little! If you know me personally, or even through the blog, you’ll know that I live for the glitz and glam, and I have quite the weakness for accessories.
Oh, hey there, sequined superstars! We made it! “New Year, New You,” right? Scratch that, babes. I want you to take on this year as the same, you! Why? Because you’re already fabulous, and I don’t want you to forget that. No need for a “new you.” But, let’s kick up our heels a bit shall we? Throw some glitter in the the air, like ya just don’t care. I want you to take time, and actually celebrate your life.
Oh, the holidays…parties on top of parties. One glittery dress after another. You end up a smidge too jolly after a night full of festive cocktails and way too many Christmas cookies. But, oh so much fun, right?
Hop a flight and take off to Paris…check! Bring photographer/Instagram husband…double check. Now, what to pack? Dresses, leggings, outerwear, a zillion pairs of shoes…perfect! Now will my hair products and styling tools even fit into my suitcase? I usually pack my flatiron, sprays, and other hair styling products for any occasion. Ok, sit on suitcase, smash suitcase, step on suitcase, say a quick prayer, and it closed! Hallelujah! My hair products and styling tools made the cut! They were on their way to a fancy trip to Paris. Ooh la la!
When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.
Am I right? Each year, since I’ve lived in New York, we pack our bags for the journey back home for the holidays, however this year, we’ve got something sneaky up our sleeve. Our journey is two fold! Aside from Thanksgiving, and a long weekend with the fam, we’re traveling to a super sneaky, top secret destination for one, giant adventure. We can’t tell you when, we can’t tell you where, but we are beyond excited, and can’t wait to share.
