From the Author: What's Your Go-To Outfit?

I was talking with a friend the other night, and we starting chatting about how every girl has that one go-to item. Its the dress, the top, the skirt, the shoes, the WHATEVER, that looks good no matter how you feel or where you are going.

I started thinking...what is my go-to item? The one item that I throw on when I want to look undoubtably delicious...when I don't have time to think or plan, or when I KNOW its going to be a good night. I could throw it on for anything...a date, girls night out, an interview, even a wedding...

...and I figured it out! My go-to item is a polka-dot dress I got in Dublin a few years ago...that is still classic & chic. I've worn it to a wedding, for New Years, a Valentine's date and a couple graduations.

So I wanted to ask everyone...what is your go-to outfit? Post it in the comment, describe it, even link to a picture if you can. I want to see everyone's "go-to items"!

Can't wait to see everyone's "go-tos"!

Trends: Valentino Studded Pumps *Look-alikes Found!*

I bring this post to you OVERFLOWING with joy because I've found them.

A while ago, I wrote about the gorgeous & unique Valentino Rockstud pumps, but with a price tag of $895, I wasn't going to be rocking those Rockstuds anytime soon. So I hoped and prayed that someone, some smart business minded fashionista, would create look-alikes or knockoffs so I could strut around town some gorgeous fake Valentinos.

And, my prayers have been Ivanka Trump! Before you get too excited, you have to know that these are not 100% look-alikes. However, they are very cute, they are Valention-esque, and for only $139 these are a steal!

I will be heading over to Nordstrom this week to try on both colors and decide which pair I'll purchase. I hope that someone else out there is excited about this find, just like me.

From the Author: Forgiveness & New Chic

Hello readers. Have I told you lately how much you all rock? I haven't been posting very much recently, and I know many of you followed the blog when it was updated daily. Life has been nuts...but after talks with a few fellow bloggers, and some encouragement, I realize the blog must go on! So thank you for your love & support, emails, and continued comments. I look forward to hearing from you more as I begin posting more regularly.

Below are some pictures that have been waiting on my desktop. Check them out...let me know what you think, and stay tuned! I have another fabulous post coming later today.

My new FAV earrings...I wear them a little too much.

This red jacket will appear again below! I love it. Thrifted! The necklace is my tribute to Flavor Flav and its from Nordstrom. Scarf from Forever21. 

St. Patty's day! Wore my dark green sweater vest and my favorite brooch from Urban Outfitters.

Friday night's outfit. Went to a Tupac versus Biggie party in the Freemont area of Seattle. Very fun night! The Jacket was thrifted, top is from Forver21+.

Love these shoes. Got them on sale at Urban Outfitters for $20! They go perfect with bright colors like red & purple.

Bird's eye view :)

From the Author: M.I.A. & Office Shots

I know...its been almost 3 week since I last posted. A HUGE thank you to all my readers who didn't unfollow, and those who continued commenting on older posts.

Last week I was in Baltimore & DC for work, and turns out I love the East Coast! The style over there is so effortless...everyone seems to have a distinct fashion sense & is totally comfortable in their clothes. I love it. I'm going to try and be more "east coast" from now on...simply chic :)

I have a series of pictures for you below, including some office shots! Let me know what you think about the pictures, and also tell me what sort of posts you want to see this month on the blog in general.
