Denim Jacket 2012

Just when I think denim jackets are over, someone styles it in such a fabulous way that I need to pull mine out again. Jenna Lyons, the powerhouse behind J. Crew ( and one of my idols) sported a denim jacket and skirt to the Met Gala recently and I'm in love. She is so [...]

The Little White Dress

We all know how important the "little black dress" is. It's the one article of clothing that will get you through any social event on your calendar. But now that it's summer, maybe we should switch things up and try a "little WHITE dress". Yes, the old rules dictate you should only wear white Memorial [...]

Romp(er) Into Summer

When I was a little girl, growing up in the seventies, rompers were a really big deal. Adults and children (of the female persuasion) could be seen enjoying summer in these super adorable one-piece items. Part short, part top, the only downside to the romper was dealing with the whole bathroom situation (you pretty much [...]

Marvelous Maxis

Today is the first day of May (Happy May Day) and that means summer is almost here. Temperatures are getting higher, the sun is shining brighter, and the stores are full of amazing warm weather fashions. Once again, the Maxi is ruling the dress selections. Sexy, free-flowing, comfortable, and multi-functional, these dresses are the perfect [...]

Cat Eyes

I am addicted to sunglasses. Even on the cloudiest of days, I cannot leave home without them. I think blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun. Choosing the right pair is essential, especially if you're spending a lot of money. They are a major statement piece and it's important to wear a pair that [...]

Get Covered Up(town)

Back then it was a combination of "Purple Rain" meets "Sid and Nancy" with a little "Pretty in Pink" thrown in. This was an area of Minneapolis that was gritty, edgy, and eclectic. It was burgers and bands at [...]

All That Glitters

In my recent excursion around the malls, one thing became crystal clear-sequins are the go-to trend for the holidays. Every store I went into was super shiny and sparkly. The great thing about sequins is that you can wear them for a dressy evening or to spice up a casual outfit. I love the look [...]

Fall Casual

Manhattan Hat Company Hat, Urban Outfitters Fisherman Cardigan, Metropark Cashmere Sweater, Express Stella Slim Fit Flare jeans, Aerosoles boots I threw this outfit on this morning to run errands at Ridgedale. Didn't put any thought into it, had barely any makeup on, yet I was stopped repeatedly by compliments on how I looked and my [...]

What’s New at MOA

I haven't been to the Mall of America since my store closed 5 months ago. After spending 6 years there, I needed a break! Yesterday, I decided it had been long enough and went to see what was new at MOA. H&M Sweater, Rock and Republic jeggings, Staccato boots, Chanel sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Metropark [...]
