    Unapologetically Me

    Today is my one-year blogiversary! Big thank you to everyone who has read, liked, followed or interacted with my page in any way (also big shout out to my photographers!) – I’m so glad I decided to give blogging a shot! It’s been such a fun learning experience and I’m excited to see where it might lead to in the future. Earlier in the summer I was out with some friends for a girls night and wore an outfit which garnered a lot of attention. I was silly enough to not take any pictures that evening, but made a mental note to use it in one of my posts. So…

    Rompin' Around

    Who else doesn’t want summer to end? Although I kind of wilt in this 90+ degree weather we’ve been getting frequently in Portland, I love when it’s still warm well through the month of September and into the early weeks of October. Summer clothing is my favorite; I get a little melancholy when it becomes time to trade my crop tops, shorts and sandals for bulky sweaters, long pants and rain boots. But looking at the upcoming forecast, summer is sticking around for a while longer. Woo hoo! During the warmer season, I take full advantage of breaking out silhouettes that I can’t really wear in the fall/winter. One piece…

    The Mesh Movement

    Mesh garments are all the rage right now. I remember about a year ago I was in Urban Outfitters and tried on a sheer mesh top for the first time. Maybe it was the dim lighting in that dressing room or the strange cut of the shirt on my body, but I wasn’t completely sold on the style and passed on the purchase. But since that day the transparent trend has haunted me, showing up uninvited in my fashion dreams and on my Instagram feed. It was about time I gave it another go. You’ll see mesh garments make a strong appearance in several of my next posts. It was…

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Recently someone asked me “how would you describe your personal style?” and I thought hmm… I’m kind of all over the place. Generally I would say I’m trendy, a little edgy, sometimes glamarous and I love color. I like to try to push the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable when it comes to fashion and I’m not afraid to try new things. But it’s hard to say I fall into one fashion classification – in fact I tend to mix different pieces from various styles to create my very own classification (after all, I am part of the slash generation). With that being…

    Romwe Review & The Power of Advertisements

    How many times have you been browsing the web when an ad pops up on the side bar and, for some reason, you decide to click it? Well that happened to me several weeks ago. The ad that appeared featured the most adorable floral bralette for only $6.99, so I fell into temptation and went to the site (www.Romwe.com). That’s where I was drawn in even more. I’m a sucker for a fast-fashion deal. Yeah, it might mean that the products are cheap but that’s to be expected. Before I knew it, I had a shopping cart full of 25 items, with a grand total under $200. Romwe.com is one…
