At The Park

Dear New York City,

You,  in the Fall... has to be one of  the  prettiest places on earth. I was at Bryant Park recently and between the trees, the colors, the smells and the architecture, I fell in deeper love with You.

So this post is for You...New York.
New York in the Fall...all the colors... the decor... the fashion and the people (me) it inspires.

Sincerely,
Michelle

Inspiration: Winter Whites, Silver Sparkle and Blush

Winter Whites, Silver Sparkle and Blush

Who says that white, flowers and pastels are reserved only for the spring?  And that silver, mirrors and sparkle are only for nighttime? They are lovely all year round and all day long.  Perfect for home and stylish to wear...inspired by Brocade Home.  The epitome of white-sparkle chic!






 










Be inspired....

Guilt Free Shopping PT 2- Back to Reality!

So I had to snap myself back into reality...especially after gazing at so many beautiful jewelry pictures.  But shopping for the "Look for Less" can be just as fun- although a little challenging at times.  Especially when you are trying to copy a much higher priced look.  Chain stores are great at copying pricey pieces.  I found some good examples below.  Some are pretty close- some have the idea going on....but either way- on point with trend!  Enjoy!
