Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Nordstrom Purchases

Hey ladies! I am so excited to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases with you!  This was actually my first time shopping the sale and I was so very excited!  I made sure I got the Nordstrom credit card early so I could participate in the card holder week.  I had just found out about the sale last year and did not have a card to participate at that time.  Boy did I miss out and I thought to myself ” I will not miss it again that’s for sure!”  I really thought when the next week started for the public I would be fine but I was wrong. Everything I loved sold out! Yes, SOLD OUT! I want to explain to you why I love this…

I’m Letting You In On a Little Secret

Hey there!  I stated putting a lot of effort into my blogging during this time last year.  One of the things I missed because I was not in the know was the kahuna of all sales!  If you are not in the know about it either I highly recommend you reading this article!  I am about to let you in on a little secret!  The reason this is such a good sale is because for a short period of time you will be able to get some NEW FALL things on sale. This is totally unheard of in the fashion industry.  This is exactly why it only happens once a year. It is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. All the items included in the sale are…

Some Important Things to Know About Rayon

Hey there again!  I am so excited to finally be writing this post.  I have learned through many years of shopping  with friends and clients that most people don’t think about the fabrics they are purchasing. Believe me, I was not always this way.  It has taken many years of experience in women’s retail to open my eyes to having a preference on fabrics.  I have grown to know that it will make a big difference in the longevity and maintenance of our clothing. Money is valuable and therefore so is what we spend our money on, right!? Since my friends and clients have really appreciated the things I have taught them, I thought I would try to teach you! I want to say that…

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…

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…
