Down Under

Don't get the wrong idea!  I'm simply in love with Australia's City Chic website.  City Chic is available to United States shoppers via but I find myself lusting after their Australian goods that can be found at can shop that site as well but I imagine it requires more wait time and a larger shipping fee.

Love Me Polka Dot Dress

City Chic
I might just have to try it out though...I love the cut of this dress, I've always loved polka dots...and there are self covered buttons under a heart shape cutout at the back...hello!  Love!

High Low

Some times you just want to participate in the trends...and some times you know a classic when you see it!  I know what you're thinking...$89.50 vs. $17.80...big difference...I know but hear me out. 

I knew the moment I saw this top form Kenneth Cole New York I had to have it.  I love stripes and I love that they've switched it up by going two different directions with once!  Besides that I know the brand uses wonderful fabrics and the quality is great so it will last!

Maybe you want to try stripes but aren't sure they're for you...go in buy the most affordable option that looks most similar to the item you saw that made you want to try the trend in the first place!  A mouth full...yes...but good advice none the less!  Happy Shopping!

I Have A Dream

I'm sure Martin Luther King Jr. never would have thought he would have a day of honor...he dreamed big so some of us could dream at all.  
Dream A Little Dream

Forever 21+
I've passed over this shirt twice now in store...each time stopping to think about getting and then not.  But in pausing to think about what all today means I think I need to get back to Forever 21 and pick it up.  Compared to Martin Luther King Jr. my dreams are small...but still worth dreaming...why not put it on a t-shirt!

If You Don't Know Now You Know...

I just got these in the mail soon as I tried them on I fell in love and began planning my outfit around them for the following day!  I wound up wearing my ASOS Curve Skinny Sleeve top, a statement necklace from Banana Republic and my DV by Dolce Vita "Pascal" wedge desert boots...basically I look amazing!

Plus from Gap?  Well yes...and no.  Gap Online sizing goes past its Store sizing of 00-16 by offering size 18 and 20!!!  They also go up to XXL in tops where the Stores stop at size XL.

If you make the cut size wise you really should give these a shipping on all orders over $50 and if they don't work out you can always return them to your local Gap!

Slither into Spring

My computer couldn't move at speeds fast enough...I had to have this top...for some reason is the slowest website ever!  I know it's not my computer or Internet me I've tried shopping their site from multiple computers...multiple connections and in multiple states!!!  I'll give them a pass for now...they're still very new.

Signature Print Kaftan

There is just something about this top...I love the fact that it's sheer and I'm really feeling snake skin right now so naturally I love this snake print...then the addition of  those stripes to switch the whole game up!  Love!  Can't wait to get mine in the mail!

Peachy Keen

This is the perfect top...I'll tell you why!
Eyelet Back Blouse

It's super can wear it to work with a nice pair of trouser or skinny jeans, add some boho accessories for an effortless weekend look or simply add a dainty necklace and a few bangles and you're date night ready!  Not quite there?  Does it help if I tell you that you can wear this with pumps, boots, flats...and come summer even sandals?  My only request...please wear a flesh colored bra underneath!

Fringe Benefits

First I have to say how great it felt to finally get to go into a Forever 21 store in San Francisco and be able to shop for myself!  All this time I've been ordering online and now I can try things on, see things in person...I'm pumped! 
Fringe Trim Top

Forever 21+
This top is super soft and comfortable...the only thing that I would change is the's a tad on the short side but that can be remedy by a long layering tank in black worn underneath!  Love!

Get Wrapped Up

Ask anyone in fashion...the wrap dress is a staple...a great basic that every woman should own.

Wrap Dress With Embellished Cuff

ASOS Curve

For that reason...that, and the fact that I love this was a no-brainer that it would be my NYE outfit.  It's, a little sparkle and a great neckline!  It was also helpful that I already owned the perfect shoes and black tights!  Making purchases that can be worn again and again...that don't require the additional purchase of shoes or other big ticket items are great investments!  I can't wait to wear this again!
