Python temptations

It’s no secret my accessory game is strong! Black is a classic color, sliming, and intelligent looking. 20140725-125737-46657823.jpg
You can make any outfit look fashionable buy wearing the right belt and shoes. If it’s all black or Jeans and a TShirt, using accessories to add a pop of color or a texture by using animal print or bright color. You had added another layer to your once simple outfit.

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.

20140625-152810-55690075.jpg
Vert and Vogue successfully changed my mind about my Rolex dreams… I now dream about Shinola

20140625-153138-55898426.jpg

20140625-153138-55898467.jpg
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,

20140625-153301-55981667.jpg

because they are and Watchmaking is truly an art. 20140625-153301-55981702.jpg

Maximalism in Action

So I did it! Took my own advice and mixed like a Mad Man to create the perfect look for my Salon Opening!

20140601-001612-972296.jpg
How did I know this mix of fabrics and patterns was going to work??? I didn’t

20140601-132457-48297939.jpg
I went shopping at Nordstrom Rack to find an outfit for the Arrow Studio opening soiree! Found this amazing tapestry dress from Free People, upon my internet search it’s sold out online :/

20140601-133349-48829665.jpg
I knew I couldn’t wear it like the model, because I like my shoulders covered. I decided it was perfect and I could throw a sweater over it… I’m sure I have something at home… Right! Wrong, I thought about all the lonely strapless dresses in my closet that never see the light of day, then I heard Kyle’s voice in my head

always , shop in outfits

20140601-133657-49017434.jpg
When you hang out with people who dress this well there is always some fashion pressure! So I decided to not leave the store without a matching, or perfectly mismatching shrug. I grabbed a few white sweaters, a denim jacket, and this floral top.

20140601-133946-49186779.jpg
Some how it worked, but did it really? Well, it didn’t hurt my eyes! At this point I thought ok grab something else in the same feel, but different pattern… Wow no pic of this because it really hurt my eyes, and my fashion heart. That’s when I decided this works! I think it was a success!

Fashion Dynasty Note:
My clutch and shoes are neutral and match one another, this helps display my mix of patterns and also does not add another element of texture to have to match!

Instagram the rabbit hole

Kyle is watching Indian Jones ! I am on Instagram finding this! 20140530-220011-79211869.jpg20140530-220012-79212031.jpg
How cool is Tattly. My husband says people without tattoos always say ” they can’t commit!”

20140530-220130-79290471.jpg
Well, it’s true I can’t pick one outfit a day I have to pick three!

20140530-220241-79361395.jpg
So now I can pick 3 well designed Temporary Tattoos a day, and the ironic joke tattoos won’t be party conversation pieces in 5 years!
