What I Wore: Athletic Meets Edgy Vintage

Fashionistas, I’m especially excited this morning because I get the opportunity to share one of my favorite looks as of late. Why is it one of my favorite looks? It combines almost all of my favorite types of attire into one cohesive look. Sometimes it’s difficult to mesh styles and pieces together. At first glance, […]

Animal Print and Gold Rings Designer Yoana Baraschi Skirt

On one of my typical visits to the Gaithersburg Goodwill location I headed straight to the skirts section when I arrived. I was in search of some much-needed business casual staples to rock this new year. My eyes are always drawn to animal print because it has edge but is still appropriate for most social settings. […]

What I’ll Wear on Valentine’s Day

February is full of events and holidays, such as the ever-so-romantic Valentine’s Day. Although many believe this to be just one of those typical Hallmark holidays, it is good spirited, and it can be fun to get dressed up to celebrate love – whether it’s for a partner, friend, child or parent. To me I […]

Love to Layer NWT Vince Camuto Top

Vince Camuto is one of my favorite brands, fashionistas. His clothing, accessories and shoes come in all shapes, sizes and styles. His brand caters to everyone of any style and age.

My Favorite Thing(s) (From Goodwill): J. Crew Tees

If you caught my post earlier this summer about J. Crew chino shorts you know that this brand is one of my personal favorites. J. Crew says “WE SIDE WITH STYLE OVER FASHION, think timelessness is underrated and find that clothes look best when they’re lived in.” I love this motto because it aligns perfectly with one of my favorite […]

Fashionista Friday: Deb’s Talbots find at Goodwill

I couldn’t help but compliment Deb’s layered look on Instagram earlier this week. I mean, weren’t we already thinking about layers? Deb, the voice behind DC style blog Real Girl Runway, responded, “The silk blouse is Talbots and it’s a Goodwill #thrift find!” Perfect! (That’s always my reaction, but let me be excited, okay?) I love […]

Guest Blogger: Learning to Layer

If you’ve visited the “Women’s Fashion” section of Pinterest, you’ve seen it: beautiful pictures of fashion forward ladies looking absolutely perfect in an array of textured, colorful layers. I have tried to replicate the pinned looks I’ve seen online and majority of the time, I found myself feeling like the Michelin Man: so many shirts, […]

Just a ruffle

Looking for a way to brush up your work wardrobe without standing out from the crowd? This soft gray blazer should do the trick. This single-button wool blazer from Banana Republic features narrow lapels, a deep v neckline, and the sheerest, softest ruffle on the lapels. The embellishment is ladylike without being frilly, and the […]

My minimalist journey

Having access to a plethora of clothing, accessories, and home goods at perfect prices can be dangerous. How do you know when you have enough? At which point will one’s overstuffed closet actually, truly burst? I don’t have the answer to those questions, but I ask them on a regular basis. I’m preparing for some […]

Let them wear shorts, I guess

A few weekends ago I noticed quite a few young ladies out and about wearing shorts. It was about 55 degrees out, and breezy (read: it was cold). Some of the women wore thick tights under their shorts. But some of them had their legs out all over the place, covered in the slightest tiny […]
