Spring/Fall Transition Office-to-Party Look Part 2

Last Monday fashionistas, I shared an office-appropriate look that combined elements of winter fashion, along with  spring notes.

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 […]

This week’s Good Buy feels too good to be true. I’m smitten! This blush-pink, sequined dress by Venus is sure to be a Goodwill steal. Venus is known for its form-fitting dresses ready for a night out on the town. But this particular piece is a bit more demure—without sacrificing the bling. A size 6, […]
