Hem Jem

I was reading denimblog and saw a post about an amazing new way to hem your jeans temporarily without damaging them. Hem Jems are different studs that are reusable and pin right into your jeans so one night you can wear them short with a pair of heels. They're also a pretty stylish accessory so they'll look cute while also being functional. People's creativity amazes me.

Target pairs with William Rast

Target announces William Rast is their next designer collaboration! So excited! The line, which is designed by Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala, will be premiering their new collaboration this coming December. William Rast jeans are one of my faves so I'm really excited for a more affordable pair! I'm waiting to be dazzled!

Wildfox Couture's new video!

Check out Wildfox Couture's awesome video showing their story to the new fall line.

A no for flower accessories

Although Elizabeth Hurley's dress is stunning, her flowery hair accessory is overbearing and atrocious. Accessories are good in moderation. It's hard to tell, but there is also another enormous flower on the back of her head. Smaller flowers in her hair would have done way better for her. Fashion fail.

Speaking of military wear

These Blank Cargo Skinnies are TO DIE FOR! I just purchased them for myself and I am in LOVE. Definitely one of my favorite pair of cargo pants that I have seen for fall. Blank Denim also has another pair sans cargo pockets with an outer side zipper which are also really cute. These are a steal for only $84!

Is banning military wear too much?

I heard something interesting today that I thought I would share with the rest of you. A friend of mine informed me that she has been having trouble selling military themed garments because customers say they refuse to support the war. It's an interesting thought, nothing I would have ever thought of before but brings up some interesting issues. Do you think that people shouldn't support the military trend if they don't support the war?

This week wearing...

Fun, girly, sparkly polish for a hot end of July week!

New Wildfox featuring ATL

Holy nightmare of denim

I'm not okay with this pair of jeans. As I was reading Denim Blog I came across this post and I was completely horrified. You honestly can't even ask "What were they thinking?!" because it is too horrific for that. Someone massacred this pair of jeans and that's all there really is to say about it. Never in my life have I seen anything like these and I hope that I never do again. Take a look at this nightmare of denim below:

Feathering into fall

I think feathers are going to be a huge accessory for this fall. I saw a lot of it in the spring and then it led into summer and it's going to continue into fall. When wearing feathers for fall, choose a more muted color like brown, black, or tan colors. There are so many headbands, earrings, and even pieces that you can clip into your hair. You can even go to your local craft store and make one yourself!

See how she is wearing a feather earring? Love it!

A new take on the flower

Seeing more and more flowers everywhere! Blake Lively takes a different approach to the new flower trend than Taylor Swift by wearing them on a small hat. Such a fun, summery accessory to add to your hair (especially if you're having a bad hair day!)
