Society 6.

I got a new iPhone 4S today from the Apple store because my blue tooth and wifi stopped working a few weeks ago so obviously had to update it with the cutest, most colorful, monogrammed case I could find. I had to share a few of my favorite designs below! I love the fun and funky patterns at Society 6

Suede Heel.

Bought these black suede Franco Sarto heels on sale today at DSW. Thought that they would go perfect with my new lace dress from H&M for the Christmas party downtown on Saturday. The sexy, confidence-boosting, leg-elongating, make-you-feel-powerful heel.

Gift Guide #1.

Today I give you a guide that will appeal to all the ladies in your life that love bright colors and every type of accessory. With a week until Christmas this guide includes everything from homemade Etsy jewelry to a bright turquoise cashmere wrap for chilly nights, to a pair of mustard yellow flats for a night out on the town to a leather clutch perfect for any occasion.

Holiday Dress.

image

With tons of Holiday festivities coming up over the next couple of weeks I decided to go shopping for a simple black dress that I can wear for all of the occasions.  I bought this simple black lace dress  from H&M that has slightly flared sleeves and a zip up back. The best part is that it only cost me $34.95 and this look can be dressed up or down depending on the event.
