Wish List: Evans

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?

I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!

Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!


Cuff Inspiration

Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration.

Wish List: ASOS

I don’t think this budget thing is working, because now all I want to do is e-window shop. And then I drool over pieces like this from ASOS. Thank you ASOS for making me drool. Thank you very much.

Shoe Fever: Wedges

When spring and summer hit, I can’t wait to pull out my wedge sandals. They go great with practically anything. I would take all of these above! Stupid budgeting. Read more

SSSSSSSnakes…

There’s something about this slinky reptile that makes me want to crawl out of my skin! But, jewelry…I can do. Add a little edge to your outfit and accessorize with snakes. Don’t be afraid! These won’t bite!

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!
