A Night Out with Brahmin

Hey friends! I am so excited to share an awesome experience with you and tell you about a fun new store that opened right here in Memphis.  Just in case you don’t know I should probably tell you that my career up until a year ago was in retail.  I managed a couple of different stores for 15 years and now I am a full time stylist/blogger.  My heart has always been in fashion and I have to say that Memphis is a pretty tough market for shopping that fashion.  But times do change and retail is on the rise in this city!  Finally! We are getting some amazing stores especially at The Shops of Saddle Creek in Germantown, TN.  A very recent addition to…

Shorts That Fit & Flatter

Hey babes! I have been posting a ton of shorts on social media lately and have gotten lots of comments about them.  When this happens I tend to think I should create a blog post and explain how and why I chose to style them the way I did.  I am also realizing the amount of people that don’t seem to wear shorts!  I know dresses and skirts are popular so why aren’t shorts?  After some thought I realized that shorts are a bit trickier to find the right fit than a skirt or a dress for most people. I also feel like they are categorized as too casual or not stylish  enough compared to a dress or skirt. I am here to tell you…

How to Style a Denim Midi Skirt for Spring

Hey there friends! I hope you have had a great week so far.  I have been feeling like my days just aren’t long enough and I can’t seem to get anything done. You ever feel like that?  I am not a fan of feeling behind all the time.  I am finally getting caught up on all my blog content for May and had a great time photographing the outfits for this post. I am so excited to style a denim midi skirt for you! I saw this skirt on a friend of mine, @lovelybeforecoffee, and had to give it a try.  To my surprise, they actually had it at the H&M in Collierville. We never seem to get the good stuff in the store, so…

How to Determine a Quality Garment

Hey ladies! Happy May! This is my most favorite month out of the year!  April showers bring May flowers right!?  I am finally getting to my second post in my series of shopping posts. The first one was How to Become an Expert Shopper. This one is going to be about what determines a quality garment.  I guess you could say I have a personal interest in this subject.  It is important to me to find pieces that will last and will be low maintenance. Of course there are exceptions to the rule when you are purchasing a trendy item that you don’t pay much for and will not wear the next season. I know we all have these items.  But what I will say…

Play! by Sephora: April Insta Beauty

Hello ladies! It is that time again for the Play! by Sephora Box!  I did something a little different this time too.  I actually tried some of the products last week so I could give you some feed back on them!  YAY!  The funniest part about this box was that it was called Insta Beauty!  They actually put dotted lines around the products on the big sheet so you could place the actual product down and do a flat lay with it! LOL! I have been doing that almost every article.  Thanks for the copy Sephora!  Wish I could have gotten credit for that one.  Anyway, each of the products are supposed to contribute to flawless camera ready results! I have to admit one of…
