Best of Guest Blogger: Fall Wardrobe on a Dime

This Fall, I am seeing vintage-inspired clothing everywhere. Do you know how excited that makes me? It’s basically my favorite style. It’s fun and classy at the same time.

Guest Blogger: Arm Swag

I take my jewelry cues from Mr. T. and clothing isn’t the only thing I’ll be layering this season. You see, I have a mild obsession with what I call “arm swag.” As the name implies, it’s a party on your arm. Sparked by my growing collection of bracelets, I noticed that I loved them […]
