The grand opening was absolutely spectacular, and every time I get the chance to, I head out to this location to score everything from clothes to quality home decor.

Celebrity Fall Trend: The Color-Pop

Color-popping is when you literally add a bright pop of color to a more neutral colored outfit, whether it’s all-black, browns, or navy blues.

The super-blog declared over-sized portfolio clutches as “the bag of the season,” noting that candidates in the category must “be strapless and the size of […]
