Bootin’ Trend

I swore to myself that I would never wear combat boots again! I spent five years wearing them as I served in the United States Air Force. And when you wear them every single day, they lose any type of fashion appeal. But, the more I see them around, the more I want a pair. In fact, I saw this pair of Rocket Dog Rideon Vintage Worn boots at Marshalls the other day and I can’t stop thinking about them. They aren’t the most feminine pair of shoes, but maybe that’s why I like them. I would love to pair…

The Shopping Diaries: No Excuses Needed

Don’t you hate having to justify things you’ve purchased? I can’t help it that this pair of shoes (below) just had to be mine! They were literally saying my name as I walked past them. OK, maybe not, but once I picked them up I couldn’t put them down. And since I was already returning a few items, I could use that money to buy the shoes. In fact, there was even some money left over from my returns. I mean, they were only $39.99! What you’re reading now is what I told my husband as I plead my case…

Spring Trends: Color Block

Although half of the United States is experiencing chilly winter weather, we do have spring trends to look forward to. The first of many trends is the color block design. It’s a very Mod style and reminds me of the 1960’s. I can see myself wearing #4 from Dorothy Perkins or #7 from Missphit. Which one is your favorite? Do you see yourself wearing this trend this spring?

Torrid has a Maternity Line?

Yes, like you, I had no idea Torrid carried maternity clothes. Most of the pieces are “internet exclusives” and very basic pieces. Have you actually seen any of these pieces in the store? And if or when you’re pregnant, can you see yourself shopping for your maternity clothes at Torrid?

What I Wore: Chinese Laundry Party

I am in a shoe obsessed mood right now, so bear with me. I can thank Chinese Laundry for that. Last night, I spent a few hours over at the Chinese Laundry Golden Globes after party held at the W hotel in Hollywood.The night was filled with laughter and fun (wink wink) with a few gal pals. There were even a few interesting sightings. It was held in “The Living Room” inside the W, which was massive.You can check out the photos on their Facebook page here. I wore this top by L8ter clothing via Macy’s, tights from Target, and…
