It’s officially fall now, but I am so not ready to let summer go. These cold and rainy days make me miss the sun and sand a bit more everyday. Unfortunately it is only going to get wetter and in New England it is definitely going to get colder, so how do I beat these seasonal blues?
This was the challenge I posed to myself this week. I need to find a way to transition from summer to fall seamlessly.
Don’t wear white after Labor Day. Horizontal stripes are a no no. You can’t mix metallics and don’t even think about brown and black. Together? No way. Plus size women can’t wear skinny jeans. This one is just ridiculous!
Some rules of fashion are meant to be bent, ignored and altogether broken!
From time to time I contemplate the idea of abandoning my dream of becoming a full time writer. I get all kinds of ideas in my head. I’m just pretending to be a writer, and I’m not really good enough, and that I should simply give up.
A couple years ago, before I started this blog, one of my uncles asked me about my writing. Back then I was uploading stories on Wattpad, and I was having a lot of fun. So I told him that I had talked with a girl from Etiopia, who said that she really enjoyed my stories. So much that she cried.
And, well, he asked me about money. Was I earning enough?
The past week marks what could be considered a religious holiday amongst the fashion obsessed. New York fashion week has come and gone but the colors and patterns and collections are emblazoned into the minds of the sleek and stylish women of the world forever. Or at least until Fall Fashion Week 2015…
It’s almost time to go back to school and that means lots of shopping to be done. Before you rush out for your trapper keepers and Bic pens, you should really take advantage of the end of summer savings going on everywhere!
Eat. Work. Exercise. Sleep. Repeat. This is my life and I wouldn’t give it up. Having said that, I decided recently that I really needed to spice things up. So I joined an online dating site. I haven’t been on a proper date in well… what seems like forever. While going to my closet, I shuffled past my work clothes, about 2 weeks worth of gym gear and an only wore once bridesmaid dress.
I decided it was time to do a little shopping and find myself that perfect first date outfit.
From James Dean and Marilyn Monroe to David Beckham and January Jones, the denim jacket has been worn by all the cool kids since the beginning of its illustrious history.
What started as a strong, practical jacket for workers and gold diggers alike in the early 1900’s, quickly became an iconic fashion statement for men and women, young and old, celebrities and your average joes.
In my quest for a topic for this week’s post, I remembered that this year, 2014, is the hundredth anniversary of the first world war. The Great War as it is better known. Since my love for history is only surpassed by my love of fashion, I thought I would combine the best of both interests.
