I am always up for shopping local. In fact, if presented the opportunity to shop a local brand or mainstream brand, I will almost always choose local. This goes for all shopping, but specifically regarding local boutiques, as I really love to support the local fashion community. 

Top from Undeniable Boutique

One of my favorite local shops is Undeniable Boutique, located in Mosaic District and Fairfax Corner. Undeniable Boutique is a well curated boutique where you will find some of the most unique items in the area. The selection of apparel, handbags, jewelry, and accessories is unreal and you will not find the same thing in other stores. Alicia, the owner of Undeniable,...

Todays post is short and sweet. I had full plans of writing a post for International Women's Day on March 8, however I wasn't able to post one in time because.... life. This month has been insanely busy thus far, but its better to be busy than not, so I'm counting my blessings.

Yesterday I got the idea for todays post after coming across an article I randomly landed on from Harper's Bazaar. I found it after googling the exact wording for a Maya Angelou quote I used in yesterday's post, and it spoke to me. The article - 35 Inspiring Quotes About Empowerment for Wom...

This past fall I was introduced to Stitch Fix and decided to try them out, first hand.  If you aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, they are an online styling service that picks clothing and accessories fit to your personal style and delivers them directly to your door. The brand has options for women sizes 00-24W and XS-3X (including petite and maternity); and men's sizes XS-XXL. 

To be completely up front here, I never thought I’d like the idea of having clothing picked for me. I’m super picky, and I actually enjoy the physical art of shopping. Yes, I just referred to shopping as an “art” because to me- it is. It takes time, planning, patience, and str...

While we had a little taste of spring weather last week, the temps are back to frigid cold and from the looks of the weather forecast, its likely to stay this way on the cooler side for a bit. I honestly can't say I'm upset about the cold - call me crazy but I prefer cooler temps over the extreme heat any day. 

One reason I like the cold weather is the accessories that come with it. Hats, scarves, gloves, and coats. I love accessorizing for winter as its an added layer of style and expressing who you are. Last year I was desperate for a leopard fur coat to express my love of being bold, style wise. After seeing Alison of Wardrobe Oxygen post one that she reviewed p...

Real talk- every intention I had of writing a Merry Christmas post was thrown to the wayside over the holidays as I developed a terrible stomach flu. I spent the holidays wallowing in self pity in bed, with very little energy to do anything. I'm feeling much better now, but I'm seriously bummed that I missed out on really enjoying the holiday. That said, I'm ready for New Year's Eve so I can make up for the fun lost over Christmas. I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas holiday filled with love and happiness, and I hope Santa brought you something extra special.
