Have you seen the Great Gatsby yet?
I unfortunately haven’t, but I keep hearing how visually stunning the whole movie is. Especially, all the clothes and jewelry! I can’t wait to see it all for myself this weekend!
Want to get your own Gatsby-esque jewelry? Head on over to my Chloe+Isabel boutique to browse through this Art Deco inspired collection.
Natalia over at Ma Nouvelle Mode wrote up this post about mixing things up with the few garments she has in her teeny closet.
As a mother who spends all my money on my kids instead of on myself I have a closet comprised of clothes I’ve slowly collected over the years. There hasn’t been much updating and I tend to fall back on the same dated outfits over and over again. After reading this article, however, I think I’m going to take Natalia’s 7 day challenge and see if I can’t “remix” my closet as well.
While I’m all for stocking up my closet with every shoe I fall in love with, there are 10 shoes every woman should have in their closet. Thank you Glamour.com for putting together a comprehensive slide show for all of us, but I figure I take your que and put together a small picture gallery of my own.

I LOVE the holiday season! Once Halloween comes around I’m a decorating, shopping, festivity-spreading maniac until New Years day. My favorite part… shopping for new holiday outfits!
This year, however, presents a new challenge in the fashion department.
If you’ve been following my posts you know that I am pregnant with my second son. I am now 27 weeks and headed into my last trimester. I am ROUND. My second munchkin is far larger than my first was at this point and I’m growing out of all my pre-pregnancy clothes quickly. I’m in desperate need of a mini shopping spree. On my list… killer outfits for the Christmas and New Years parties my family will be attending.
I, however, am not one to buy maternity wear when it comes to dresses. I want to buy something I can keep wearing even after I give birth. Hence, I have been scouring the web and stores to find something that will accomodate the belly but still be wearable and cute. Here’s what I’ve found so far:
love a dose of bling…
in need of a killer maxi…
belted looks are always flattering for maternity wear…
and I could never pass up a great lace dress…
The best part about all these looks… they are all under $50! That gives me more money to put into presents! I have to uphold my title as “best present giver” in my family after all :D
Happy Holidays everyone! Hope it’s one filled with happiness and love.

Have you heard of this website yet?
If you’re like me and know exactly what you want, but not where to find it this website could help. It’s like a forum of sorts. You post a pic of what you’re looking for and other members help you find it! It’s pretty cool just to look around at what other members have posted too. It gave me some ideas as to what I’m grabbing next time I’m at the mall. :)
Have fun hunting!

So I am 5 months along with my second child and I know how difficult it can be trying to make the baby bump fashionable. Especially when most days my sweat pants are just too comfortable to change out of!
Thank goodness for Tres Chic Mama! It’s a blog I found that posts images of maternity street style. It’s a great place to find inspiration and get ideas on how to rock that baby bump. Tres Chic Mama… Expecting in Style!

The trend to try this summer: Florescent Lips!
If your not bold enough to try the sheer, lace or brightly colored trends dominating the market right now why not start small and try a little color in your beauty regimen instead. Be confident! Go Florescent! ;)
Need to invest in a great swimsuit like this for the summer - something that is gorg enough to double as a top to an awesome skirt.
