How To Look Expensive + Shop this Look for Less!
Something most people don’t know about me is that when it comes to fashion, I can actually be a bit of a cheapo. You’d never say, right? I always want the best things, but I do my best to get it for the best price too. This is not to say I’m always wearing low-end or that I never splurge, but either way, it needs to be the type of item I can wear in a way that still looks expensive in the completed look.

A Guide To Dressing Like a Minimalist
As someone who is somewhat known to be more “extra” with my style, it came as a surprise to me even how I began pandering to a more minimalistic look over the last year or so. I think the reason for my new partial preference came from the fact that I finally understood the art behind it.

#NewerForLonger : I Wore The Same Dress To 3 Events in One Week!
As I’ve grown older and found my personal style, when I make fashion purchases, instead of pandering to the latest trends I try and keep Vivienne Westwood’s famous saying in mind; “Buy less, choose well”. It’s better for my wallet and challenges my creativity (in a good way), and with proper care of those garments, it’s better for the environment too. Did you know that 25% of the carbon footprint of clothing comes from the way we care for them? By using the right detergent, one that cares for your clothes, you’ll keep it looking newer for longer.

Becoming The Woman I Wanted to be
At the beginning of this year, I was browsing online and stumbled across Diane von Furstenberg’s book, The Woman I Wanted to Be. Until now, I still haven’t read it, but the title alone had me asking myself, “what kind of woman do I want to be?”, so, I wrote some things down. The woman I want to be is kind, uplifting, creative, innovative, strong, compassionate, patient, unbothered by opinions.

I then asked myself, “how do I become her?” (more…)
