Straw Fedora Comeback?

Are you a hat lover? I admire those who can pull off a hat. Especially, a fedora…how about a straw fedora? Also known as the Panama Hat, this could be spring’s hottest hat…or will it just hit the ground face first? I love them! I think they are very chic, but some think otherwise. I would take any one of the hats below. I want to know what you think. Yes or No?

Handbag Gallery: Denim

You all know denim is a hot spring trend…what about your handbag?
Are you daring enough to whip one out while the birds are chirping and flowers are blooming?


Forever 21 Wish List

Forever 21…why must you tempt me like this? I was doing so well. Then I find these beauties. Didn’t you know I was a bargainista and I have been trying my hand at the local thrift stores? Now, I must buy something from you. I’ll tell my hubby that it’s all your fault…and he should blame you. Sorry…someone has to take the fall. And it’s not going to be me.

Accessorize with Wood

It’s almost spring! I bet you can’t wait. I’ve been in an accessory frenzy…as you can tell. I am on the look out for wooden accessories to add to my spring wardrobe. I love to pair them with anything in an earth tone. I am drooling over all of these pieces.

Show Some Love: Part II

Asos at ShopStyle

Make Valentine’s Day fun the entire weekend-with any of these heart accessories. I’m seriously trying to get my hands on a pair of heart sunglasses. I would love to wear them out and about this weekend. Although, a Betsey Johnson ring sparkling on my finger wouldn’t hurt either. Hmmm?? I’m going to need to think this over.

Tips & Advice: Sunglasses


Many moons ago, I was a Nordie’s sales girl. I slaved away for many hours in the accessories department. This is where my LOVE for sunglasses began. I can’t began to tell you how much I love a good pair of sunglasses, especially a nice retro-inspired pair like the ones below.

I learned a lot working there and I want to share a few tips with you:

  • When picking out a style of sunglasses, always go with a shape that is opposite of your face shape/jaw line. For Example: If you have a round face, choose a square frame. Etc…
  • Make sure they rest comfortably on your face. If they are resting on your cheeks or sliding off your nose, don’t buy them. It will make them uncomfortable to wear.
  • Don’t wear them on the top of your head. It stretches the arms out and can lead to them breaking or not fitting correctly.
  • Always use the cloth that comes with the sunglasses to clean them. Not your shirt or anything else. You will scratch the lens. Unless you don’t care about them…wipe away. You can also use rubbing alcohol to clean the lens. Works great!

Handbag Delight: Plum’s the Color

For some reason, I am obsessed with purple. Not just any purple, but the plum-purple color. So, it would make sense for me to buy a handbag in this color. Right? Ok, it makes sense in my head. It doesn’t make sense to my hubby, but it never does!

I’m not just going to go out and buy any bag, I am definitely a curvy bargain shopper. I found these gorgeous bags below for under $100. That may still be a little pricey, but I guess it’s OK to look…this time.
