Save The Elephants  I’ll bet when you are shopping, you are only focused on finding the trendiest of pieces, not for items that only look good but also have a mission to save and protect.  Trust me, you are not alone, whenever I am shopping at my favorite store all I think about is buying stylish items, while trying not to break the bank.  However, recently I was introduced to the brand, The Elephant Pants, whose mission is to provide chic, colorful clothing while saving elephants, by donating a portion of their sales to protect the elephant population. I know what you may be thinking, why should we care about the elephant population when most of the population is found practically on the other side of the world.  Well, elephants are tortured and killed for their ivory, making them endangered species.  The thought of never seeing an elephant in its natural habitat in my lifetime is a scary thought.  Why should we let this population of beautiful elephants continue to decline?  Well we don’t, keep on reading to see how I style one of my favorite pieces from The Elephant Pants. Of course, the star of my outfit is my…

It’s that time of year again…when the weather is starting to get a little warmer, the grass is getting greener, the birds are starting to sing, and so on.  These past few days have finally felt like spring.

My outfit would be extremely boring without my colorful, tie-dye button up shirt from Urban Outfitters.

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…
