The Look: Flare

//Wide-leg pants are definitely on trend and have been for a few seasons. I found a pair that I love while thrifting a few weeks ago and they are the perfect length for my height and shape. I love skinny and boot cut jeans, but these were a nice break from the norm! I’m also wearing my new Brahmin purse, which was an amazing Christmas gift. I’m in love. 🙂

The Look: Peek-A-Boo

//Another fab thrift find. It’s beginning to get a bit chilly (read 60 degrees lol) so I want to try and wear all my cute warm weather outfits before the winter chill sets in. My friend’s mom spotted this dress and passed it along, and I’m so glad she did! It fits great and the peek-a-boo back adds some playfulness to the look. I paired with Sam Edelman zip-up booties and my purple Aldo bag.

The Look: Where There’s Smoke..There’s Fire

//Well, you never know how the day is going to turn out! While visiting with friends, we stepped outside to take a few pictures to capture my look. And while we were outside, a car drove by and…caught on fire! We actually saw the car smoking from down the street and when they drove by, we saw the sparks at the bottom and immediately told them to get out. The fire grew bigger and with the wildfires and drought here in Texas, the situation could have ended very badly. Luckily, the firefighters arrived in time (well…15 minutes after we called) and thankfully no one was hurt. Thank goodness we went outside when we did! This blog may have saved two lives!

About the look:

Walk into any store and you’ll see animal print galore. I paired this zebra print Antonio Melani dress with snakeskin Tahari flats. The two different prints are within the same color family, so while it “doesn’t go”, the look still coordinates well. A leather orange purse and accessories completed the outfit.

The car fire –

Of course everyone had to come out and see what was going on. But all’s well that ends well!

My Statement Necklaces

//I can’t express how much I love statement necklaces! Here is a quick post on the main pieces I have in my collection. I try to buy different colors, though I do tend to gravitate towards gold more than silver accents. I recommend that all fashionistas have at least 1 – 2 statement necklaces in their jewelry collection. And by “statement” I don’t mean that it has to be a huge necklace that takes up your whole upper body! But one that speaks to your unique style and makes people stop and say “I LOVE your necklace, where did you get it!”

I received an email asking which stores I recommend for great, reasonably priced accessories. A few stores I suggest (some are Houston specific, others are not):

1. Francesca’s Collections

2. Sam Moon Trading Co.

3. Charming Charlie

4. Aldo Accessories

5. Express **Today Express is having a sale – 40% off all accessories!!I’m on my way when I finish this post! 🙂

6. Ann Taylor

7. Arden B
