Well, I’m trying guys and it all starts with wearing more dresses…and prints…and colors other than black. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with any of that, but there are just way too many fab designs out there for me to stay stuck in that box. So, I partnered with Yona New York to show off their Floral Charmeuse Drape Dress and give two lucky readers the chance to win their own! Read more
You may have read about my always stylish and supportive friend Ivory. I can always count on her for style inspiration and wise words. One thing she taught me was to try clothes on, regardless of what the size is on the label. If it looks like it might fight, just try it on and see. Sometimes it doesn’t fit and sometimes it fits like a glove! Besides, we all know that not all fashion brands are sized the same. Some run bigger than others. Read more

And then all of the stars align when you see that it’s not outrageously over-priced and it’s available in your size.

Over the past few years, I’ve stuck with the same skinny jean silhouette in a dark wash. That’s just what I’m drawn to. So, when Target challenged me to a different kind of denim hack, like trying a few AVA + VIV denim styles I wouldn’t normally buy—I was a little uneasy. Read more
