Yearly Archives: 2012
The plaid pattern has been slowly and surely creeping into my wardrobe. It first started as a shirt and it has graduated to a sequin skirt. Pairing tartan print and a sequin piece has dominated the blogosphere for a while. I was pleasantly surprised, though, to see them combined in ONE as part of Tory Burch Fall 2012 Lookbook. And then I had a mission – to find an affordable alternative… Do you think I have succeeded?

I have enjoyed the military-inspired trend for a long time. In fact, it has been so long that it made me think – is it a trend or not? For me, a trend is a fleeting and short lived style – a couple of months or even a year or two. Infatuation with army chic seems to have started back in 2008. It is alive and well based on a recent article in Instyle magazine. Why is that? Is it because neutral colors like army green, olive and khaki look good on everyone? Or is it because it is functional and comfortable? What are your thoughts?

Although I don’t yet own winter coats in staple colors like camel and black, I decided to be bold and brighten my holidays this year with a bright red winter coat. This eye catching piece is more versatile than one would expect and I would like to prove that to you. Over the next few months, you will see it paired with:
– Jeans for taking care of daily errands
– Little back dress or other formal piece for your holiday party
– A work appropriate attire to spice up those 8-5 hours
Of course, you may want to pull off some sexy coat flashing like Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs. I will let you come up with your own pairing for sexy coat flashing:)
I wanted to introduce to you the ladies with Pink City Atlanta. I had the opportunity to meet them at the “Pretty in Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness event organized by Pink City Atlanta Chapter.Yes, there is a lot if “PINK” in this post but what is a better color to represent these fun, brave, beautiful, and philanthropic girls. They host “exciting, cutting-edge, alternative events” for women in Atlanta and I cannot wait to learn more about their most successful event – the “Exclusive For Who I am Bachelorette Expo” as I have a number of gorgeous single girlfriends.
