A is for Activewear

Hey Kids! I thought I’d mix things up a little bit today and do a post on activewear.  Activewear has evolved so much in the last few years, even spawning an entire new “genre” with athleisure. Garments have become incredibly versatile, technical, practical, and fashionable. Seriously! A quick browse through Carbon 38 should convert any skeptics out there. I…

Trend Tuesday

    As a lover of vintage fashion, I’ve been delighted by the 60s and 70s influence we’ve been seeing in recent trends. I’m particularly taken with the bell sleeve, and am ready to carry it over into fall and winter.  The bell sleeve is an incredibly wearable and flattering trend, elongating arms and balancing the shoulders…

Bomber Bandwagon

So we all know bomber jackets are trendy AF this year. And while I appreciated them, I wasn’t so keen on picking up one of my own. That is, until I found “the one.” We met on a balmy (read: oppressively hot) Saturday afternoon on the top floor of the Cooper Design Space in Downtown…

I spent a week in Copenhagen this past August and really had a chance to soak up, and fall in…

Wishlist Wednesday: Gucci

Let’s be honest, Gucci’s entire collection is on my wishlist this fall. Today, however, I’m focusing on the rather ubiquitous Peyton boots and loafers.

Admittedly they are a bit trendy, but they’re also incredibly…

Trend Tuesday

  I absolutely love ankle boots. They’re chic, versatile, and comfortable. Really everything you’d want from a shoe. I also love bold, statement pieces. So naturally, I couldn’t be more excited about one of fall’s biggest trends being statement booties. Velvet, glitter, denim, brocade, patent, suede, tapestry, embroidery, patchwork, bright colors, prints, funky heels, embellishments of all varieties… There are even…

Monkey Business

I took a trip out to Hidden Valley (no relation to famed salad dressing) to visit my horse today. Did I mention I have a horse? I have a horse. He’s retired now, but he put up with my competitive show jumping years like a champ. When we arrived he was grazing a far corner…
