Sweater and leather

I had a busy Valentine's day so I took a bit of time off from the blog. This is from before Valentine's day. I really like this brooch, I haven't worn a brooch in a while.

Casual Sequins

I tried to make this sequin jacket work for a casual day. I think I pulled it off. I paired it with some ponte pants. I kept the outfit simple so the jacket can really make a statement. I went out to lunch and saw I, Tonya.

Navy and Black

Mixing navy and black is tough. Sometimes the colors are so close it's hard to tell apart. Since the skirt has a black waistband, I felt very confident pairing it with black tights and a black jacket.

Valentine's Gifts for the single girl

Since I run a chocolate shop, Valentine's Day is such a busy day for me. And since I'm single on Valentine's Day this year my plans are some great takeout and a glass or two of wine. I've rounded up some great things for single girls to treat themselves to.
I've included two kinds of wine glasses. I think the stemless glasses look really cool. I like that both of these have an etched pattern in them. It makes it perfect for having a group over. A copper or rainbow cocktail set has everything to help you perfect your bar-tending skills.

Just because perfume is a traditional gift doesn't mean you can't buy it for yourself. Some of my favorites are Marc Jacobs Daisy, Prada Candy and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon. I really like the Vice Lipsticks from Urban Decay the one in my picture is Cruel. The NYX Mattes aren't drying the one in my image is Sweet Pink.

Pink and Navy

Pink and navy is such a great combo. I like it better than pink with black. These pants are great. They have a tummy control panel and I'm really liking that right now. The length is pretty good too. When you have short legs getting a good length is important. The right length can make you look taller.


I don't usually show my coat but I think it went well with this look.

New Year's Eve

I wore this to a New Years Eve party. I need to work on my indoor photo skills. It's too cold to stay out for a while taking photos. I paired my leather skirt and top together to look like a dress. I topped it off with the sequin bomber jacket for some sparkle.

Statement Sleeves

This is a simple look. I wore this to a tasting event. It was at a nice place so I wore a statement sweater. I got the sweater and pants on Black Friday. The pants are on sale for $20. The sweater is sold out so I'm going to link some similar options. I love the sleeves on the sweater and it has a little bit of glitter in it too.

Pink and Gray

I had a crazy week last week. I was preparing for a huge festival over the weekend. I even spent my day off in the shop getting stuff made. So now it's time to show you what I wore for Thanksgiving. It was a nice day out so I just layered a jean jacket over a sweater for when it got chilly.

Easy Ways to Shop Small and Local for the Holidays and Year Round

Happy Small Business Saturday! I got some good deals on Black Friday. As a small business owner, Small Business Saturday is important to me. I'm going to talk about easy ways to shop small and local. Small Businesses have a personal touch and usually unique items.
Gifts- Hostess and out of town gifts are some easy way to shop local. Check out your local boutiques for unique items. Some easy hostess gifts are wine and chocolates. If you have out of town guests, getting something from a local boutique that is unique to your area is a great way to introduce your guest to your area; something like that is also good for people that have moved away from your area.

Wine and Beer- Alchol is an easy popular gift. My state has so many wineries and breweries. If you are getting wine for dinner, why not try a local wine? Visiting the winery or brewery is a fun activity. Many allow you to take a picnic and make a day of it and it's an awesome way to get a sampling and find something you may not have tried on your own. I love going to wine tastings.

Food- While you're out shopping for gifts try a local spot for lunch. If your taking your friends out to dinner for the holidays try a local spot. You may find a hidden gem. I love my local Indian place so much I had my birthday there!

Clothing- You may have a local boutique that has interesting pieces or a consignment shop. I got a great pair of jeans from my local boutique.

Online- There are plenty of online small businesses. Etsy is also a great way to find handmade items.

How do you shop small?
