Baby, It’s Cold Outside
December 15, 2015-
It’s that time of the year where we pull out our snuggliest clothes and try to brave the cold. This year, instead of pulling out all the same coats and sweaters from the back of your closet, take a look at some fun outerwear that can spice up your winter wardrobe. Faux fur vests are a trend we’re seeing a lot of lately. They look sleek and elegant and can be paired with just about anything. Pair it with a nice long sleeve shirt, jeans, and boots to dress up a more casual outfit. Or really go glam and pair it with a little black dress. This is the perfect piece for a family get together this holiday season. Looking for something a little more edgy? Try a leather jacket! A leather jacket is a great way to stay warm and create a sleek outfit. Ponchos are another trend that’s taking off this season. Find one in a cozy color or print and it’s perfect for running all of your errands. Another good vest option for the winter months is a good quilted vest. They are perfect for a more casual day time look, and serve as the perfect layering piece. All of these options are great for bundling up and still looking cute, check out some of our favorite finds below!
High Flying Style
December 11, 2015-
With the winter holiday coming up, it’s time to fly home for the holidays. Planning an outfit for flights can be difficult. It’s a public place, so you want to look decently attractive, but you know you’re about to be crammed in a seat where your legs can’t extend more than an inch, not to mention the security you’ll have to get through. No one wants to mess with laced up shoes or anything metal when that’s the case.
Speaking from winter traveling experience, here is the best go-to outfit for a day of flying:

COVETing a New Wardrobe?
October 27, 2015-

If you’re like me, you don’t always have the money to go out and create a new wardrobe for yourself. Sometimes we cure this with “window-shopping,” but occasionally that can lead to some accidental spending and $0 in your checking account. So how else can this be remedied? Well maybe it’s a little nerdy, but there’s an app for that!
Covet. On this app, you get to dress your model for various events like birthday parties, romantic dates, traveling, and more! You receive a daily allowance to get you started in “purchasing” your wardrobe. For every event you enter your look in, you also receive an allowance. Finally, if your look is judged highly enough, you win garments and jewelry to use in future looks.
If you’re obsessed with fashion, or perhaps you want to be a stylist in the future, this is the app for you.
Fall into Fall 2015

It’s officially fall here in Texas and while the weather may not feel like it quite yet, the chill is quickly approaching. Fall brings with it an array of earth tones, cozy patterns, and lots of layering. It’s one of those seasons we all look forward to and with good reason. Our style options are so versatile for this time of year. Trends that are taking over this year include fun patterns like plaid, and stripes. Flannels are a great way to get a hint of plaid in your wardrobe and do a cozy layering over a cute tank top. Striped dresses and shirts give any outfit a more polished and chic look! Dresses are a favorite for any time of year, but right now it’s all about those flowy off the shoulder dresses. That’s a hint of 70’s fashion coming back into style for you. Boots are a fall favorite for everyone and riding boots have been dominating the market for years. While they’re still a fall favorite, this season it’s all about the bootie. Wedge or heeled, they are taking over and make any outfit look festive and fun. Lastly let’s talk about scarves. They are the perfect accessory for any fall outfit. They’re warm, and a great accent that can either make a statement or simply add to your great ensemble. Check out some of our favorite fall finds below!
