One Dress, Two Ways


So here I am making you more jealous. Not only did I go away for a week and lie on a beach, now I am going to show you pictures too:) I don’t want to hurt your feelings too badly, so I will just talk about my fabulous vacation style!

One thing I really hate is when people store clothing away for certain occasions… “This is my dress for evening weddings”. Or, my personal favorite, “This is my funeral outfit”. Seriously? Well, just take one look at my cute dinner ensemble and you will see that taking something from cocktail hour at your 3rd cousin’s wedding to a date night in Florida isn’t that difficult! You just need to own the right pieces and have a great online stylist to teach you how!

I bought this maxi dress at a vintage warehouse sale about 3 years ago. I actually paid just to get into the sale and spend money on clothing. I am crazy, but this stuff was amazing!!! This dress is circa 1970 and it still looking hot today. Usually I wear it with gold rope high heels, a long gold chain necklace (actually from a hardware store) and a gold clutch also circa 1970. But I ask you, why would I keep this fabulous frock tucked away in the back of my closet just for fancy occasions?

With the maxi dress being the hottest trend of the summer season, it is time to put this baby on display! By pairing it with a casual cropped white jacket and flat gold sandals, I have instantly made it more casual. Pulling in a white leather clutch with a tassel and layering on multiple bangles, I have pushed it even more into the “date night” category. My tousled hair and light make-up make this look perfect for a dressy, yet casual summer evening.

Love the pieces you own and let them shine!

Holy Crap, I am 30 Today.

For those of you who have hit this milestone, congrats. I am now a proud member of the “I made it through my ’20s and I am still alive to tell about it” club. After seven years in this business, I only love it more everyday. With all of the trials and tribulations of starting your own business, it is a miracle that I am still here:) The truth of the matter is that you must love what you do, believe that you are good and know that you will be great. They say that your ’30s are truly the beginning of the rest of your life and if that is true, let’s get this party started! Thanks for reading and even if my style matures with my old age, I vow to always understand “the young people” and what is hip and cool. I said hip, I must be old:)

Holy Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Literally holy, this thing must have been designed by someone sent from God. Who else could possibly understand our divine need to actually be able to FIND every piece of jewelry we own? I curse the day jewelry boxes were created!

Yea sure, they are pretty, but jewelry boxes have been nothing but an ugly sore on society since their mighty creation years ago. They serve no actually purpose other than to cause their owners to miraculously go into long rants of curse words because they can’t find a matching earring. They should call them the “Tangle my necklaces, eat my earrings” box.

But alas, the hanging jewelry organizer, although not as visually stimulating, has saved us from our days of dismay. With many different sizes and pocket amounts, there is certainly one made for you and your closet. As suggested by it’s design, it literally hangs in your closet next to all of your many garments and is the size of a dress shirt. With clear pockets on BOTH sides, it allows you to easily manage your millions of accessories. The other amazing part? The designers (sent from God) realized that it was important to have different size pockets. Therefore, as you make your way to the bottom, the pockets get bigger! Amazing.

The only thing this miracle piece cannot handle is larger bangles and necklaces. Enter thy jewelry box! The main problem of a jewelry box is that it doesn’t have tiny enough compartments to find your more delicate pieces. By using it for your bulkier jewels is actually serves a pretty compartmental purpose!

St. Louis to Hartford!

This small, adorable host makes me look like a giant. Seriously, bad positioning. Either way, today was simple and funny and I am lucky enough to be in Hartford, Ct., my home state. So my lovely mommy is hanging out with me for the night in my hotel. She reads this religiously so she will now feel famous since she has had a shout out. Yo Elaine.

Tomorrow morning I will be my most funny, most pretty, most entertaining and most informational since my high school classmates and childhood friends will be viewing. Very important to seem awesome:)

What happened to Dallas?

Well I’ll tell ya, nothing! I will preface this with an apology to all of those readers who live in the southern regions of the states: It does occasionally snow and life goes on, does an inch really warrant four hours of live coverage!?!? No, but my hit in Dallas was canceled for this exact reason. It is like they have never gotten below 50 degrees, never mind seen an inch of snow and a few spots of ice.

I was about to board the plane from Atlanta to Dallas today when I got a frantic call from my booker telling me not to get on. Apparently a winter storm had hit (um, OK) and they couldn’t find the time to talk about last minute gifts with the overwhelming amount of snow (one inch) and ice. Thank god for my very individual beautiful white suitcase with gold crowns because otherwise they never would have found it and gotten it off the plane at the last second!

So here I am in St. Louis one day early and looking for ways to entertain myself on my surprise day off. It is not that hard for me as long as there is a spa and bar within a short distance. Therefore my tomorrow includes working out, checking out local boutiques, going to the movies (this is the only time I do it by myself so I feel like a trooper) and getting a facial and manicure. Tough life, but someones got to do it.
