What’s In A Bag?

From On August 17, 2011

It’s been over a year since I purchased the Studded Devote Rebecca Minkoff bag. Although I love it, it’s definitely time for a new one. I switch it up all the time with an oversized clutch or crossbody bag, but a new one is in order! This week Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) encouraged its members to bare what they carried in their purses. So here’s me baring all.

From left to right, top to bottom:
1. Orla Keily wallet from Anthropologie
2. Gum is important
3. Lotion and hand sanitizer
4. Marc by Marc Jacobs coinpurse full of business cards
5. Bottled water is kept handy almost at all times
6. Keys (Check out my initial and FIDM keychain)
7. Blackberry
8. MAC lipgloss
9. Comb

Occasionally you’ll find candy or snacks, an umbrella or even my mini laptop.

So what’s in your bag?


A Trip To Georgetown

From On November 1, 2010

Halloween weekend was lots of fun. It didn’t involve getting dressed up in a costume or spending time at festive parties. I basically hung out with my sister the entire time. Eating Halloween-inspired cookies and watching scary movies is just as much of a good time to me. We took a trip to Georgetown in hopes of not overspending. I think we made out ok. I saw a lot of things I’d love to have, but I’ve put my impulse shopping in check. So I ended up bringing home a scarf and a belt from Anthropologie. Sounds pretty simple, but they were both things I’ve been dying to have.

Striking Encounter Scarf

Striking Encounter Scarf

We all know that I’m a scarf fanatic (see here). For whatever reason, I’ve really been into black and white printed scarves. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the contrast in colors that’s got me hooked. I first saw this online and immediately knew that at some point I would be buying it. I also LOVED that it’s 100% wool. I’m a lucky girl in the sense that wool scarves do not make me itch. The fringe-detailing on each end, another great characteristic. Can’t wait to wear this!

Windmill Bow Belt

Windmill Bow Belt

I also found the Windmill Bow Belt online. I thought it was so chic with the black on navy coloring. And how feminine is the grosgrain bow? Ugh! I pictured this with an all black outfit and this belt to accentuate the waist. Can’t wait to test it out.

I was sooo lucky to find both of these in the Anthropologie at the Georgetown location. They usually never let me down, anyway. Expect to see them in future posts!


Funny Face

From On September 24, 2010

Funny Face

Took some fun new pics today and daringly decided to rock this bright pink lipstick. Definitely not something for everyday. Not for me, anyway. I figured I’d title this post whatever the name of the lipstick was. To my surprise, I found it to be called Funny Face (by NARS). How fitting, huh?

Get it at Sephora!

Bentley & Me

From On February 28, 2010

DSCN0226Ok everyone, meet Bentley! The newest addition to our family. He is a 10 week old Yorkie that is so much like a small child. He gets into EVERYTHING and is very adorable. He’s just learned or I guess I should say has grown enough to go up and down the steps. So now we are really in trouble. His short attention span is pretty entertaining. I sit and watch him often. He thinks he’s a big dog and tries to keep up with the others we have even though they are about three times his size. You’ll meet them later 🙂 For now, here’s more pics of Bentley.


I can’t believe it’s the last day in February 2010 and thus the last post of the month. Time is flying! I’ve got a lot coming up for March: many more spring trends, photos of me in various places and anything else that sparks my interest. More puppies, perhaps? I guess you will just have to check back and find out for yourselves!

Miami After Dark

From On February 3, 2010

So I’m back from Miami! I had a great time with my friend, Ashley. We barely slept, but we enjoyed ourselves all too much. It was my first time there and definitely won’t be my last. From the beach and the clubs, to the food and the shopping, Miami has it all. I loved the atmosphere and the energy of South Beach. The following picture was taken my second night there before we went out.

PICT1336crp I’m wearing a BCBG Max Azria bandage skirt paired with a silk top from Forever 21, a BCBG max Azria belt and shoes by Jessica Simpson (my faves). I love this look because of the black and white and the huge pop of neon-esque pink. The blousy top paired with a slim mini is a look I go with often for it compliments my hips and small top. I’m all about defining the waistline so the belt does that for me. I also kept it light on the accessories.
My last night there I wore a little black dress. Chic and simple I called it. Form-fitting and short, a great combination for me! I got it from BCBG Max Azria and I believe it’s actually a top, but being only 5 feet tall it worked perfectly as a mini dress. Again, very minimal jewelry. I wanted my dress to be the stand-out piece. The sandals I bought from ALDO a couple years back but remain to be a big part of my warm weather wardrobe.

**Trend Alert: Bright pops of color, mini skirt, long-sleeve mini dress and studded belt

Each of these trends will still be seen throughout spring 2010 collections.
