I’M BACK! 

Sorry for the short siesta! My plans to blog from Vegas were shadowed by my crazy schedule of buying, seminaring, drinking, dancing, buying, shopping, swimming and buying…

My time at WWD MAGIC, Project, & ENK were fulllllll of the eff word.

FALL. It’s kinda basically here already. It’s the END of August, and I’ve never been more excited. Bring on the combat boots, gimme some layering pieces, and absolutely match my handbag and polish with rich jewel tones! Oh, and need I mention there are only a few weeks left of baseball? I get my man back just in time to celebrate my birthday!

Back to handbags. I eat up bold statement staples. Staples typically coincide with neutrals, but that rule is about as ancient as black and brown clashing. Jewel toned bags are a beautiful way to stand out and be excited about getting from point A to point B carrying all of your essentials. Love the bags? Click the images to for purchase deets! 

P.S. I LOVE the Kate Spade in “emerald”, but I can afford this Steve Madden in “cilantro”! Excuse me while I order it.

As I pack for Vegas, I’m giddy and excited to be a sponge to the industry.
I’ll be attending the biggest apparel show, surrounded by fellow bloggers, and boutique owners, and yes, even fellow hairdressers.
I recently went through a style identity crisis. 
I have the sweetheart blonde side, that finds charm in Tory Burch and BCBG, and then there’s this “Made In Detroit” side, that appreciates a lived in graphic tee, leather jacket, big hair, and smokey eye. I started feeling like, as a blogger, and self-proclaied fashion expert, I needed to have a style of my own. But often, as in daily, my look evolves and changes! My mood is a turning kaleidescope and changes with each song on my playlist. 
So then came the epiphany… I don’t need to identify with the sweet side, or the edgy side of fashion. I love both. I FEEL both. I truly AM both. And most importantly, I’m inspired by both. 
Identifying your personal style is expressive and liberating. What you wear from your fragrance to your fringe makes a statement to the world.
What are you modeling?
