You don’t know … About Shinola

I Love Vert and Vogue , one of the reasons besides the effortless European style is that they always know something before I do. I don’t give many fashionistas that claim… Maybe my mother in law. 20140625-152048-55248810.jpg
A few weeks ago they introduced me to this beautiful Shinola watch.

20140625-152718-55638104.jpg I am the type of girl who follows trends, but always leans toward classics. As much as I love my Micheal Kors watch, I’m really saving for a vintage Rolex.

Vert and Vogue successfully changed my mind about my Rolex dreams… I now dream about Shinola


A watch that is not only made in America, but in Detroit !

20140625-153301-55981624.jpg They have a great story and they call their employees craftsman,


because they are and Watchmaking is truly an art. 20140625-153301-55981702.jpg
If you are Durham Local head over to Vert and Vogue in Brightleaf today and try one on today, and start dreaming of Shinola

10 Minute Mop Miracle

This is my Good Morning Hair, last night I went to bed with my hair wet.
I applied a heavy Layer of Living Proof No Frizz Weight a Less Styling spray then squeezed the excess water out with at towel and went to bed. 20140623-083913-31153309.jpg
Using just this one Product I will not only create beautiful touchable waves, but also an ever lasting style even in humidity and rain.

Did I mention I’m in a Hyatt , this is not my horrible lighting choice. I’m spritzing the product all over my hair before I section it.

Using my Favorite Scrunchi I section my hair in medium sized sections to create more realistic waves.

I’m using a picture from a previous blogs , ( when my Husband was around to take the pic)
Notice how I hold the iron down and wrap the hair from roots to ends around the wand.

Spritzing more of the product on each section before I apply heat. It will not only shield my hair from the heat but it will block the humidity to maintain the style all weightlessly … It’s in the name.

One last mist and a light scrunch will fuze the sections together into a moldable , movable style.

And your selfie ready!

I kind of rock them with everything!

They are very comfortable especially for standing ten hours at a time.

Fashion Dynast Note:
I’m a 39 in the Flat, it’s a soft leather so you could go true to size, this way with a half size bigger I skipped the break in

Olsen inspired

It is no secret that the Olsen’s are by far my favorite fashionistas! 20140609-005508-3308115.jpg
I found my self lost for an outfit tonight, and again referred to one of my many Pinterest boards!

Executed the denim Tuxedo rather well if I do say!
