Thinking Ahead to Spring: The Color Orange

I hear that a lot of snow will be gracing the DC area on Friday and Saturday and while I don’t mind snow, I prefer warmer weather. My favorite seasons are fall and spring, so spring is definitely on my mind since it is the next season coming up. Lately on the blog, I feel […]

The First Worst Trend of 2016: Pajamas?

I can’t believe it fashionistas! There’s ALREADY a trend that I severely dislike in 2016 and I hope it doesn’t hit the DC streets. Let’s hope that it stays on the catwalk and only the catwalk. So what is this trend that I already despise? Pajamas as regular clothing. That’s right. Pajamas are being transformed […]

Trends That Need to Die in 2016

2015 was a year of great fashion trends….and some blunders as well. While I’m pretty accepting of most trends, there are some that just need to cease existence in 2016. Before I get to the negatives, I loved peplum and lace this year. I was also ALL ABOUT the comeback of *most* 90’s throwbacks. My […]

Logos: A Status Symbol or Tacky Emblem?

Dear readers, today I’m talking about something that’s a bit more on the sensitive side: logos, my opinion of them, and what they mean to all of us. To begin, I’ll start out with an anecdote from many years ago about my encounter with handbags, logos, and my true tastes. A while ago (maybe 4 […]

Work Appropriate, Yes or No?

Fashionistas, I’m kicking off the week asking you all to weigh about a question that we all battle with on occasion: is it work appropriate? I’m sure you’ve all experienced this at least once: putting an outfit together one more with particular items that you aren’t sure if it’s okay for the office. I know […]

DC Fashion Week vs. New York Fashion Week

Unlike previous years, this year, I actually took the time to read up on some of the latest and most important fashion, particularly, New York Fashion Week. I never really cared (and still don’t), to keep up to speed on this kind of stuff because I’m not a big trend follower. Rather, I like to […]

Is Michael Kors No Longer Cool?

Michael Kors, dear readers, is a brand I see at Goodwill stores all of the time…..clothes, the occasional handbag, accessories….I’ve seen almost every type of his products. However, despite the excitement around the brand in most recent years, I’ve never been a fan. I like the occasional handbag here and there, but overall, I have […]

“Is the red carpet bad for fashion?”

Dear readers, I caught this article on WashingtonPost.com last week and it just sat strangely with me. First, I have to say it was majorily exciting to see fashion come up as a hot topic in the Post – that speaks volumes for our industry and the place it deserves in the media. So, I’ll begin by saying, […]
