There’s something about mixing fun prints that instantly puts me in a good mood. And my husband too. He kept complimenting this look. I love that he loves my crazy sense of style. Good man!

A bold print on top, and a still bold but less bold print on bottom. LOL. I am fully aware that this may be a totally out there look for most but to me it’s completely normal.

This look would be great for a creative working environment, a date night, a special event. Anywhere you want to feel completely fabulous and glam. I think it’s the shoulders on this top. Extreme and defined. A good shoulder pad will do that to ya ;)

I mean. The Shirt. Makes. The. Outfit. Had to have it.

When I want to make an outfit a little more casual with that cool element, a graphic tee is always a go-to. And when it has Snoop’s face on it, it just makes it really fucking cool.

Let’s talk about the pants… I know a lot of women think the wider the pant, the bigger it will make you look. Wrong. It’s all about the fit. I love how dramatic the leg is on these but they still slim me. They don’t tug or pull they just skim and create a lean silhouette. Next time you see a wide leg pant, just try it out.

My number #1 fashion rule is just TRY IT ON. Don’t say you can’t wear it unless you’ve tried it 100 different ways.

playing favorites.


Red and leopard are clearly the winners in my closet lately. Maybe it was the holidays, maybe it was just because red is my color now. And let’s be honest, the leopard is always a staple and isn’t going anywhere. I love how this slouchy sweater paired with a leopard dress felt instantly chic. With the oversized sleeves and midi length of the dress, down to the kitten heel, I felt very “french fashion” with a little tweak. Minimal, easy pieces are the way to go.
