Behind the Scenes of Fashion

When I was in high school, I remembered watching one too many episodes of America’s Next Top Model. I was inspired. Most nights, I’d come back from school, sit on the couch with my homework propped on top of a folder and write in between commercial breaks on the sofa arm. I was mesmerized by…

Rose Gold Accessories

If you’ve read my previous article about Express, then you’ll know that I became like Bex from Confessions of a Shopaholic during the scene where she goes to Henri Bendel and admires how gorgeous the green scarf on the mannequin is, tries to talk herself out of it, but ultimately buys it. Well, that was…

Express: Turnlock Cross Body Bag

I’ve never owned a taupe handbag before in my life. Now that I have one, I can’t imagine life without it. For the longest time, I’ve been meaning to build a basic handbag collection of white, cognac, taupe, and black. Yet, I’ve always found myself drawn to deep hunter greens, beautiful burgundies, teal, and the…

One of the things I love about military jackets, is that they go with almost any outfit, and are still considered contemporary in the fashion world even with the trends that come and go each season.

The Perfect Weekend

On my mini road trip this weekend, I went shopping at Zara. Their window display had a huge sign that had ‘SALE’ written all over it in various font sizes. That was literally all it took to convince my mom and I to walk in. Also, it’s one of our favorite stores. After searching through…

The Simplicity of Stripes

Last year, I bought my first striped body con midi dress from Abercrombie and fell in love with the effortless simplicity of being able to style a striped dress with almost anything. You can dress it up with key statement jewelry pieces and a cardigan, or blazer, create a casual look with a denim jacket,…

Zara Handbags

Last month, during the shopping chaos of Black Friday shopping, I avoided the crowds at the malls by staying, sipping hot chocolate with my fuzzy slippers on, and surfing the internet for all of the deals at my favorite stores. It was definitely a change, because for the past several years, I’ve always made an…
