Kate Spade and the Era of Fun Fashion

I think fashion for a long time has limited itself to either things that are so ridiculous and uncomfortable that you can’t actually wear or use them, or things that are boring and bland in the name of “chic”. Personally, I find boring to look a little cheap, like all the other mass produced products

Black Friday Shopping Guide for Quality Clothes

Expensive clothes in the US aren’t high quality. Expensive clothes in the US have a fancy designer label but are made with the same awful stitching with loose threads out the wazoo that can’t handle going through a few washes. Medium brands like Land’s End that cost in the $50-$100 range are the only brands

Game of Chance

Summer time means a lot of road trips for my family, and that means a lot of time eating out. While we wait for our food to come we like to break out a pack of cards and play a quick round (sometimes three if it takes a while or we are moving quick!) of

Monthly Surprises: Julep Subscription Box Review

I recently subscribed to Julep Brand’s monthly box program. Julep is, of course, the brand that is most well known for their nail polishes and manicure tools that “make a home manicure easy and fun.” I know I always enjoy doing my nails regardless of whether I use dollar polishes or fancy brands, but I

Mean Green Sweetheart

I decided to simply slather on whatever green nail polishes came to mind, and I’ve got to say it worked. I love the look of this manicure! (I’m sorry for the door messing up the background, I don’t own Photoshop or anything else…) And I was able to pull it all together with free drawn

Robbing From the Rich (No, This isn`t Politics)

Big Fashion Has Been Letting You Down Vogue has been telling you for quite a bit what is in for this Spring. Unfortunately, their editors only live in a few select cities, and they don`t really know what most people wear. I read the magazine a lot, but it always disappoints me a little how

Monster in The Closet

I thought you might want a break from the constant art based posts, so we can move onto interiors now. A specific interior, in fact. We are talking about the bane of my life here. The dreaded small closet! I know, you may be thinking that any closet that can`t be walked into is small.

St. Patrick`s Day Nails

Tomorrow is St. Patrick`s Day! So, in a mixture of nostalgia for February and love for a joyfully pointless holiday, I created this nail design.   Trace a heart on a dried out pencil eraser, and use an x-acto knife to cut away the excess. You may find that the stamp doesn`t work perfectly, so

Reconstruction: The Closet Era

Some Things Need Tailoring Like I said in my post, Ive done some light closet purging lately. I make it a habit to go through my clothes, including the stuff that is stashed in the back just in case Ill fit into it again, and donate the stuff that I dont truly love anymore. That

Tied in Knots

My hairstyle, that is! I absolutely love buns. They are so chic, and they look terribly tricky to pull together. They are also super easy to actually pin up, and cut my hair styling routine down to about ten minutes a day. Here`s five buns, with terrible pictures, that I`ve worn this week! The poor

Louis Vuitton bothers me: No Originality in Haute Couture

I know that I`m about to mortally wound and offend a few of my readers, but I couldn`t resist. You see, I was scrolling through a few blogs, and found this amazing post on handbags at Thecitizensoffashion. I was reeled in by the fabulously ostentatious snake purse at the top of the page. Is no

Glasses are The Window into The Fashion Soul

I love Glasses It bothers me, all of the people who wear their glasses in secret. Usually they just wear contacts, and it compeltely thows me off the few times they show up in glasses. It really bothers me, though, when people literally switch between contacts and glasses every day. If I took a facial
