I couldn't think of a good title for this post.  It might be because it's Friday and it might be because I haven't had enough caffeine yet.  All I could think of while I was trying to make word play of the word "wear" was "Wear is my coffee" and frankly that just doesn't make much sense.  (Although it is a good question.)

1. Since you began blogging do you notice a change in the types of things you gravitate towards while shopping? No.  I started blogging because of my style choices - not the other way around.  I wanted to share with others all the different things I found and loved while shopping that I would buy (or that I wished that I could depending on budget.)

2. Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from your family and friends? Do they comment on that?  Well I certainly dress different from a lot of people especially when I am at home in Baltimore.  My best friends are fashionable as well but I wouldn't consider them to be fashion risk takers.  I've always dressed a little different from everyone.  (Remember I was the kid that asked for a beret when she was 12.)  There are days when I feel like dressing like everyone else or wish that I'd be satisfied being simple but for me getting dressed is a way of expressing myself and if I don't let it out I am only hurting myself.

3. What’s the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you aren’t bold enough to wear it?  This has me stumped. Good question...

4. Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to build up the courage to do?  Well I'd say there isn't much that I wouldn't try if I liked it.  I do have a giant sunhat in my closet I am dying to wear but haven't come across the right occasion yet so I guess that kinda counts.  But I will wear it.

5. Toot someone’s horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you with her bold fashion choices?  I could really go on a long tangent and list a bunch of people (bloggers) here but I will have to say that I enjoy reading My Style Pill and looking Christine's style pics.  I love NY.

Happy Friday everyone!

Bold Desires

As you all know, I'm in a constant battle between wearing classic neutrals and blacks and the itch to throw on something bold and bright.  This time of year always makes it a bit easier to succumb to bright colors since they are so readily available to buy everywhere.

and the Beautiful

The Bold And The Beautiful

Corset top, $23.00, H M short short, $25.00, Brian Atwood high heels, $649.00, ChloƩ leather clutch, $1,650.00, Kenneth Jay Lane turquoise necklace, $80.00Oscar de la Renta gold plated jewelry, $290.00, Kate Spade bangle bracelet, $128.00

This is undoubtedly one of the boldest outfits I have ever posted but it is rapidly becoming one of my favorites! It's made up of high-end and low-end items that can be mixed and matched with other items in your closet time and time again.


FBFF: Pack Rat

This time of year most people are thinking (dreaming) about their vacations or are already begining to go on them.  That being said, packing makes for a perfect Fashion Beauty Friend Friday topic this week.

Well I'll throw this out there first - as much as I love vacations and traveling, I haven't been on a real in a little over two years. I do have a MUCH needed one coming up in the fall and I cannot wait.

1. When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra? The more the merrier.  I have to bring everything because I never know what I may need!

2. What are your must packs? See question number 1.

3. What are you happy to leave behind? The bills.

4. Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one suitcase? Haha don't try to get everything in just one suitcase or they will charge you an extra $95.00 if it goes 5 pounds over the limit.  I repeat, do NOT try fitting everything in one suitcase. Try carrying a large purse onto the plan as well as putting the most valuable items (for me it's shoes) into a carry-on.

5. Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand? Ah, I love to read. However, I don't know when I'll get to the beach this summer.
