Splurge vs. Steal

title

I decided yesterday that I needed a leopard scarf, so I began the hunt. Get it, hunt, because it is leopard. Anyways. Much to my non-surprise, the one I first fell in love with was $555. Unfortunately, the state isn’t paying their employees that well, so I had to keep hunting. What do you think?

Here is the original one I fell in love with

Do you have a leopard scarf? If so, where did you find it?

Why, hello there, Winter!

I am SO sorry that it has been months since my last post.  I was at a new job, that was not quite as flexible with my lunch breaks, and also 20 minutes further commute each way. With that, comes this announcement: I am back at The University of Texas. Hoorah!

The most exciting part of this transition, is my ability to blog more often (the salary and benefits aren’t too bad either). I will start with a few of my favorite pieces this winter, seeing as my last post was about SUMMER dresses. Oops.

Pick a Pop of Color

Today I used photoshop for the first time ever. Whew. Only took me about 3 hours to figure this much out. Sorry for the rough beginnings, but I hope to master it in the next couple of months! On the bright side, I did find this AMAZING Mackage leather-embellished silk dress that is quenching my thirst for a nude frock this spring, AND it is on sale! I suggest picking a pop of color or two, NOT all, to pair with your need for nude this coming season.
