    Styling Stripes With Stripes This Fall

    Bold patterns to match a bold personality? Um, yes please! That’s one of the reasons I love fashion. You get to express yourself through the unique outfits you wear. There are times when fashion can be very touchy. Wearing the wrong shoes could potentially ruin a very cute outfit, for example. But there are other ‘rules’ of fashion many feel like they need to know. Keeping up with these latest fashion do’s and don’ts can definitely be exhausting. The good thing about this list is that 1. It’s an unofficial list which means 2. It pretty much stays the same for each person and 3. Your list can be completely…

    How To Channel Vintage Pinup Vibes at Work

    Everyone remembers the iconic scene in Grease when plain Jane Sandy trades in her ponytail and poodle skirts for red lipstick and a leather catsuit that electrifies Danny so much they feel the need to burst into song and dance. Good gravy, I only wish an outfit I wore would have that effect on people! But, there is a way to get as close as you can…  This edgy style was most popular amongst the rebellious young women of the 1950s, divided into a variety of subculture groups dubbed as greasers, rockabilly, and pin-up looks.

    Back to School Outfits for Teachers

    As a former teacher trust me when I say, I know how stressful it can get. I’m not saying it wasn’t fun and so fulfilling to see my students grow and learn (it definitely was!). But there are days when you can get a little more than stressed. Since it’s a new school year (yay!) and you know days like this are going to happen sooner or later, maybe it’s time to get into some new routines of your own. Changing certain things up can help ease the stress that’s bound to happen. A simple, yet effective, thing you can do is fashion related! I know you might be thinking…

    What Does Business Casual Mean In Today’s Workplace?

    Throughout history what has been the ‘normal’ women’s clothing style has changed significantly. In the 1800’s it was scandalous to show your ankles. As society changed and evolved, so did fashion. The norm for womens fashion became more form fitting and shorter in length. Before long we had entered a time when women wore pants and shorts. While we have come a long way there are still certain unspoken social rules we follow, fashion and otherwise. Certain things are only appropriate in the right situations. It’s not like you’d wear your Sunday best just to go grocery shopping or your bathing suit out for a fancy dinner… At least I…

    Be a Boss Lady With Banana Republic

    Being a boss lady, like with anything else in life, is not as straightforward as we make it out to be. Yes, a big part of it is being a strong woman who kicks butt at work, but it’s also a lot of small things that add up. One of the most important parts, in my opinion, of being a boss lady is the way you view yourself. If you are always convinced that you’re going to fail, there is a big chance you might. I get it, being positive and always seeing life as being glass half-full can be challenging. Sometimes we need a little boost to get us…

    Celebrating International T-shirt Day with Chico’s!

    Did you know it is International T-shirt day? Wohooo!! Today is a day to celebrate the most versatile piece of clothing. Think about it! You can’t exactly wear a fluffy winter coat to the beach on a hot summer day or a bikini in the coldest part of the world. I mean you could, but it is not recommended lol. T-shirts can be worn on or under about any piece of clothing and can even be worn by itself!! I find myself wearing T-shirts a lot but the color T-shirt that I wear most would have to be white. I mean do you blame me? It is the easiest color…
