{ Dare To Wear } Laid-back Layers

I absolutely love this time of year. After a brisk winter the warmer weather is oh-so appreciated.

This season I get the urge to break out both the light and bright hues. I don’t want to feel too summery, as there’s still a likely chance for a chilly weather change.  It’s not consistently warm just yet, so layers are your friend — I know they are definitely mine! Continue Reading

{ Local Love } Shop Smak Parlour’s Capsule Collection On Kickstarter Right Now!!

So there’s these two really stylish, super sweet, girl bosses that own a trendy and affordable boutique in Old City Philadelphia called Smak Parlour (love their store & them!!). They also happen to be best friends and designers. Their names are Abby & Katie. They’ve been in business for ten years, have really cool style that’s all their own, oh and they’re also a blast. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with them on TV segments, shoots, events, and they even carry pieces from my vintage-jewelry collection Bling Babe.

Also, they are budget-friendly fashion babes and know it’s all about fun and expression, not spending a fortune. And so, they’re gone back to their designing roots and created a capsule collection through Kickstarter that’s so the Smak Parlour style. It’s a little glam, a little edgy, quirky, cool, retro, feminine, and incorporates their Philadelphia roots by collaborating with three Philly artists.

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Nick Jonas & Jessica Alba Have Something In Common

So Nick Jonas hosted Nickelodeon’s 2015 Annual Kids’ Choice Awards last week wearing a trend that I’ve been kind of obsessed with for spring. It’s a denim jacket and he’s not the only stylish star who was recently spotted rocking it. Jessica Alba donned her jean jacket on Instagram last week while promoting Michelle Obama‘s Let’s Move campaign and her company Honest. She cuffed the sleeves and dressed up the look with a statement necklace.  Continue Reading
