Hello! Welcome to my blog, and thanks for stopping by.
For years I have been, what I guess you could call, an amateur fashion aficionado. Since I hit puberty, I’ve fallen madly in love with anything and everything fashion. As I’ve grown and matured (slightly), my fashion style has changed dramatically, and continues to do so. I believe that’s what is so great about fashion – it is ever-changing and ever-evolving. Fashion can be fun; it is supposed to be fun. Yeah yeah, there are the famous “fashion faux-pas” rules (like no socks with sandals!), but rules were meant to be broken!
I’ve finally decided to translate my love of fashion and style onto the greater medium that is a blog. I hope that I can inspire those die-hard fashionista’s (and the closet fashionista’s – you know who you are) out there with my looks and inspirations. Fashion comes in all shapes and sizes – and price tags. I’m here to prove that, while yes there are all of the great brands out there that we love (Dolce and Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent – I’m looking specifically at you!), looking and feeling great doesn’t have to break the bank.
Now – Let’s get this thing rolling!
Fur is back, people. Really, I don’t think it ever truly left. Fur is one thing that I absolutely LOVE for fall/winter styling. I kind of feel like it goes with everything, and if you don’t agree with me – I don’t really care. My only stipulation is that it be faux. Weird, right? A girl who adores fashion so deeply but balks at the thought of wearing a true dead animal? Well, to each their own I suppose (no judgement on all you dead-animal wearers; I respect all fashion lovers equally). Fit and flare jeans – you can’t go wrong. One of my favourite fall looks is a solid fit and flare paired with a faux fur vest. Throw in a pinstripe boyfriend shirt (tucked or loose, option is yours), and some suede-tassled booties (not pictured 😦 sorry) and you’re golden!
