Mini Skirts!

Victoria's Secret has a great line of mini skirts right now. They are all very festive! This sequined mini has a unique scalloped hem and can be dressed down with a t-shirt and flats or boots.
I love this Victoria's Secret sequined mini. I am thinking red lips and a cashmere boyfriend sweater would look fabulous with it! Comes in gold, eggplant and black.

This sexy BCBG Foil Bandage mini skirt would be great for New Years with a blank top, heels and some sparkly earrings.

Love Print

Are you looking for something crafty to do but you're not a knitter or sewer? Try painting! The print above would be so easy to attempt. Just buy a blank canvas from your local art store and get to work! I did a simple sketch of a bike that sits on our living room book shelf. If you are not so artsy just click on the link below and purchase for the like + like in your life.

Holiday Cheer

Forget the lemonade and make a Gin and Tonic! Maybe this is not the best philosophy, but I am using it to get me through finals. These original prints and stationary from Dear Colleen (link below) could make really cute gifts for friends.

The September Issue

September Vogue is all about color. Forget about buying another tired black blazer or muted trouser pants. Swap these wardrobe staples with something more electric. Vogue suggests color blocking, which means instead of wearing black to tone down a bright color, mix two colors together. I am now on a mission for the perfect pink tuxedo jacket and bright skinny jeans. What do you think... too 80's?

Arms Around Me...

"You put your arms around me and I'm home..." This is definitely an alone-in-the-car-belt-out-song. Isn't the video fun to watch?

Derby Pleat Blouse

Good Housekeeping sent me a sewing machine and I have been very busy making jersey dresses. Isn't this blouse with the little swimmers print sweet? I think it will be my next project!
