Back-to-School Fashion (On a Budget!)

On my first day of ninth grade, I learned one of the most important back-to-school shopping lessons…EVER. With my bright pink monogrammed L.L.

Trendy Tuesday: The Mule is Back!

I’m putting a stamp of approval on a recent trend that has reestablished itself in the footwear community. That’s right, dear readers, I’m deeming that mule is back and ready to be rocked once again.

Goodwill Summer Shopping Bus Tour

This Saturday, I boarded a luxurious bus and literally shopped my way around the DMV with what was undeniably the best company a fashionista could have asked for. Thirty women, nine hours, and tons of fashionably frugal purchases later, I am still feeling the high from such an amazing trip. Over the course of our […]

Dear readers, in honor of the Kate Spade Surprise Sale that I refrained from participating in this week, I am writing to you about my favorite brand for women’s accessories.
