And the Blogger Award Goes to...

First let me apologize for the delay on this post, it took longer to work on than last year. There are just so many awesome bloggers that we follow. 
Once again I'd like to take this time to thank all of my fellow bloggers.

Best Trends of 2012

The peplum: A trend that was nostalgic of the pin up ear. I love this trend, I hope it stays with us for a while. This was one trend that is flattering on every woman.


The neon high was everywhere this year, in our clothes, jewelry, and including our homes. I don't know if it was just me, but for some reason it made the summer a bit more fun. Paired together with nudes was just genius. I absolutely loved it, bright, vivid, and daring all at the same time, it gave our wardrobes a bit more oomph. Oh, how we all were on a neon high. Feel free to come back any time neon.

Oh the heel-less platform... I was very weary of this trend when it hit the streets, to see it on entertainers such a Lady Ga Ga was to be expected, but in raw form was a little hard to digest at first. I have to admit that this trend does look good, it reminds me of the pinup era. Unfortunately I feel like that this shoe only looks good if it was made by Giuseppe Zanotti. But if you were lucky enough to find a pair that look really good without it being by Giuseppe (more power to you).



Well, that's our  take on the "Best Fashion Trends of 2012". What were your favs?

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers for the Fashionista

This is a very last minute post about last minute stocking stuffer ideas for your fashionista friends. A list of things that are sure easy to find, afordable, and not sold out of. Things to keep them styled, polished, and ready. Like the Tide to Go pen & a lent roller to keep spots out and lint and hair off. Dr. Scholl's gell inserts for the heels we love to wear, to make the stride more comfortable, and Fast Flats to give your feet a rest. Double sided tape, and a emergency sewing kit is something that a true fashionista should ever be without. And for the beauty lovers, nail polishes, false eyelashes, and boby pins are great last minute stocking stuffers as well. Let's not forget gift cards ( you just can't go wrong with those).
