RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Reviews: Hip Cinched Blouse, Oblique Pointelle Pullover, Bolshoi Cardigan, Ruffled Shell, Slung …

Let’s review, shall we? Hip Cinched Blouse (now $50) by Maeve, size up style # 21375035, gold (070) or green motif (038) ★☆☆☆☆ When even the models have difficulty wearing a top you know you’re in for a grand ol’ time in the fitting room. The Hip Cinched Blouse (now $50) sounds like a great idea: take a large cowlneck…

OOTD: Professional Development Day

Ever feel like you were unprepared for being an adult? School prepared me well with the basic skills I need for my profession, but I find myself often feeling like I’m missing the other pieces of the puzzle.

OOTD: Loving on the classics

OOTD: Feeling Fresh
