Everyone secretly dreams of a wardrobe that showcases their mood every day of the year.  Unfortunately, not everyone can adopt Paris Hilton’s approach to fashion: Buying more clothes than you need and discovering that you don’t have enough days in the year to wear them all. Besides, you probably wouldn’t have enough place in your wardrobe to store it all.  As much as one can love clothes, there is indeed such a thing as too many items. There’s also another problem with such an attitude to fashion: It’s far too expensive for anyone to afford. What you want is fashion that you can identify with, but that doesn’t break the bank, fashion that defines your identity without making you look like everyone else, fashion that looks good without being expensive. This is a challenge that you can win if you change your shopping habits. Affordable and original fashion exists; it’s up to you to make it work for your style and your budget.  If you are not willing to compromise your style while on a budget, this post is for you.  (Look out for fashion deals) Shop Smart Items At the beginning of every fashion styling, there’s the need for…

How cheesy is the title of this post?  Oh well, I haven’t uploaded a style post in ages, so this title will do. I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post.  I blame the blizzard and artic conditions that has plagued the East Coast.  Well luckily, before another cold blast hit my area, I was able to take advantage of the semi seasonal temperatures and head outside with my camera.  It was a nice change to ditch my bulky winter coat and wear one of my favorite spring outfit.  This spring look no further than Zara to find all the latest fashion trends.  Hands down, Zara has become one of my favorite retailers because you can find some really unique pieces that embody all the hottest styles.  For example, this blouse I’m wearing doesn’t just feature one trend, but two: star print and ruffles.  Zara makes it super easy to stay in style. So more about my top. I feel like lately, you can’t walk into a store without seeing the star print somewhere.  Remember my post a few months ago that also featured this print?  If not check it out here.  As for the ruffle…

It’s that time of year again where I wake up every morning, look through my closet and realize how unsatisfied I am with my clothes.  All that jumps out is my overly worn sweaters, long sleeve blouses, scarves, and all those other winter fashion essentials.  Not only is my wardrobe uninspiring, but also every time I walk outside, I am met with a barren landscape.  I am counting down the days to when I wake up to the birds chirping outside, the grass turning greener, and the trees and flowers starting to bloom. Until then, I can only turn to online shopping to get me excited for the warm spring weather ahead and stay up-to-date on what is trending for the spring.  One online and also brick and mortar store that has been satisfying all my spring fashion needs is Century 21 Department Store.  Whether online or visiting one of their locations in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Florida, you will find designer brands at affordable prices.  Century 21 is the perfect place to shop fashionable women, men, and children’s apparel, as well as home décor and beauty products.  Of course, when I had the chance to browse Century…

Cue Rebecca Black’s catchy, yet annoying song “Friday,” because guess what “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday.”  Sorry for getting that song stuck in your head, trust me I have been singing along to that song all morning and it’s not only frustrating to me but also my roommates.  Oops!  I am just so excited for the weekend and to share with you today’s style post. The star of today’s post is my stylish gold cuff by the up and coming brand Cosa™.  This is not just an ordinary bracelet but it is actually the world’s first magnetic charm cuff.  The Cosa™ cuff, which is Italian for “a thing”, features magnetic charms called Jigs™, which is short for “thingamajigs.”  Clever right?  As you can see the gold cuff contains 5 blank spots to pop on your favorite Jigs™. Today, my Cosa™ cuff includes the pill, the vintage like, the heart, the light bulb, and the lipstick Jigs™. All of the charms have a special meaning like, the vintage like for being an Instagram “star,” the heart for the love and dedication to blog, the light bulb for always being inspired, the pill for those moments when I need to remember to…

We are more than a month into 2017 and the fashion world has already seen some trends that will continue to make a statement this year.  Although we have less than 11 months left of this year, I am almost certain that the pieces mentioned below will make it into your wardrobe before we ring in a new year.  Keep on reading if you are interested in learning about some of the trends that have been turning heads so far. Micro Bags Image source You heard me right – micro bags are one of this year’s hottest trends.  The only problem with micro bags is that on first glance they seem incredibly useless – what can you use them for, other than carrying a lipstick and maybe one stick of gum? But many designers paired them up with larger bags, meaning that these micro bags are used more as money purses and an accessory to your larger bag.  Carrying two handbags can seem a little counterintuitive and unsafe but if you attach them together then not only will you be on trend, but you’ll also make sure that you never misplace either of them.
