29 Jeweled Tones

jewel tones winter 2014

As a SoCal woman, I am not very fond of winter. We don’t get terribly cold around here, but we also aren’t blessed with the beautiful snow, enchanting frost, and all the fun things that go along with it like warm gloves, glamorous coats, and snugly woolen scarves. The one thing we do get to do is have fun dressing in winter jewel tones! I happen to adore all colors of jewels, especially emerald green, deep teal, and bright gold! There is just something so elegant and refined about jewel tones, don’t you think? I put together this list of all the jewel tones I was being inspired by and thought you ladies might find something for your wardrobe as well. Which one is your favorite?

20 Must Have Leopard Print Items

  leopard print

It was Jenna Lyons who said, “as far as I am concerned, leopard print is a neutral” and I would happily agree with her. It has taken me a long time to admire leopard print because it is so often done badly, but when worn as a classy accent, I think it can take an otherwise boring outfit into chic-ville. At the moment I only have two leopard print items, a pair of Miss L. Fire shoes from a few seasons ago, and a pair of new leopard print flats from Anthropologie, seen as the last picture on this round-up. For some reason every time I wear them I just feel so sassy and invincible! Almost like the leopard herself. Please enjoy this collection of leopard printed items.

18 Thanksgiving Day Dresses

thanksgiving dress


Many of you know this already, but for those of you who are new, my background is in costume design. Yes ladies, I used to shop as a living! Of course costume design was more than just picking out pretty clothing. There was character development, seasonal issues, and of course, a tight budget. Due to the fact I have a degree in costume design, I sometimes have the habit of wanting to dress myself as a sort of character- namely as “The Glamorous Housewife”. This leads me to finding the perfect outfit for certain situations. For example, a few years ago I found a dress that was the ultimate picnic dress and I wear it every time I go to a barbecue. I do the same thing for Thanksgiving. You can see one dress I wore  for the past few years ago here. Because it has been a few years I decided I wanted to get a new dress for Thanksgiving, so here is a round-up of my favorite choices.
