Is it Worth Hemming?

For the longest time dear readers, one of my mottos for Goodwill shopping was: don’t buy it if it has stains and doesn’t fit quite right. I thought that if I was paying so little for a piece and possibly taking a risk, it better fit really well. If I needed to get something hemmed, I might […]

Whenever I sift through the racks and spot designer duds whether they’re shoes, scarves, or dresses I immediately get a bursting rush of excitement in my […]

Guest Blogger: Why Floral Prints Are Not Just For Summer or Hippies Anymore

If the very phrase “floral prints” evokes images of Pamela Des Barres’ I’m With The Band (or maybe that’s just me), it’s time to reconsider your flower child-flower print conflation!
