One of the things I look forward to wearing during the colder months (besides OTK boots) are printed tights. Not only do they keep my legs warm when I don’t want to wear pants, it’s fun and definitely spices up my winter wardrobe!

Perfectly Shifted

I’ve always love the sixties shift dresses look, but mainly on other people. They are so chic, stylish and timeless, but most importantly it seems so effortless to just throw on a narrow shape dress and still look stylish.

The columnar silhouette was characterized to flatter most body types…but I find most shift dresses are narrow as hell and never really fit me correctly. Too loose on top and too tight around my hips. The design of shift dresses are not supposed to hug or “cinch” the body but I find the hemline always cinches the beejesus out of my thighs. I thought maybe I’m just having a Chip Wilson (lululemon) moment and am buying workout clothes shift dresses 2 sizes too small, until I got this OASAP dress in the mail. It’s perfectly shifted and fits like a glove without being too tight or too boxy. I also love the added white collar and faux cuffs for a nice contrast to the bright cobalt blue.

Now I know the shift dress that best flatters my body type is one with a slight triangle shape as it flares out at the hemline.


Here are a few of my favorite shift dresses, works well for curvy shapes and on sale.

Whenever I wear leopard it just picks me up. I mean, I could be having a shitty day but putting on animal prints just changed my mood and demeanor completely ( Rawrrr :). Leopard prints are classic and timeless, and with a pop of color like this bright pink bag will instantly modernized the look.

Not sure how I forgot all about these photos that we took a while back because this has got to be my favorite skirt from the collection (and the longer version HERE). I love how the fabric is so silky soft and flows so seamlessly when I walk, or in my case spin/twirl. Sorry, with such a twirl-able skirt, I just can’t help myself! :)

Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday! Enjoy the day and be safe over the weekend!! xo

Where The Wild Roses Grow









When I first saw this pattern I wasn’t sure what to think… Christmas, Chinese New Year, vintage…so I passed. A few weeks later I visited the same store and there it was again, starring at me from across the room with it’s eye-catching mix of cobalt blue, ruby red and the little dashes of green. The colors are so vibrant, happy and I know right away what I wanted to make…One of my favorite things, crop tops and skirts. :)

I always love combining a crop top with a high waisted skirt, but when it’s done in the same print, it can create an illusion of a dress, with the unexpected break in the center to expose just the right amount of skin. However, I think the best part about a two piece if the versatility of pairing the top and skirt together or separately with other pieces. Gotta maximize each piece in your closet! :)
