Out to Eat

Hi! I just got back from lunch at Einstein Brother Bagels. These are a few snapshots that were taken. To create a fresh spring look, I paired a trendy DIY mint scarf with a bohemian dress, mint socks, oxfords and a vintage camera case worn as a purse. A spoon bracelet polished the look off. Now, I would like to thank you for your support of my blog. Recently, one of my photos made it into the Chictopia Style Gallery and has received over 200 votes. I am ecstatic because I have never even come close to receiving that many votes! Luckily enough for me, it was my entry to the free people contest. Help me out by voting for it HERE. And congrats to April, winner of my ad space giveaway!

Fluttering in the Wind

Hi! For this warm spring day, I chose to wear my light-weight, sheer leopard print maxi skirt. I thought that I had nearly exhausted my styling options with this skirt (!) but I was able to pair it with a vintage top, lace-up boots, heart sunglasses and a pearl collar for a spring-y bohemian look.

Hi! A long time ago, I won this skull & feather necklace from Brandi of The Beatniq. Check out her shop HERE. I love it! I especially adore the skull although I'm not a huge fan of the yellow color. It perfectly complemented my outfit of a plain white top and cuffed shorts today. To complete my bohemian look, I added a fringed belt and camera case worn as a purse. At 80 something degrees, it is officially spring in Richmond!

Art Exhibit

Hi! My recent pop art portrait was recently displayed at VCC and tonight I went to view it. I wore my recently received rings courtesy of Anika Burke Eclectic Boutique. Anika sent me 2 rings and a pair of earrings; I adore them! In the photos, you can see my two rings- they are simply gorgeous! One has a gold seahorse on a cream-colored background and the other is a bright pink. They conjure up images of the beach, luxury spa resorts, ice cream cones and everything spring. I am enamored with the seahorse ring- honestly it is my new favorite ring (expect to see it again soon!) The other ring is also great for spring and adds a nice pop of color to any outfit. The rings did leave slight blue marks on my fingers but that is to be expected from costume jewelry. I liked that the rings had adjustable bands. I would most definitely recommend shopping there! The prices are great and the clothes are extremely trendy.

Want to be Sponsored??

Hi! I am looking for a blogger to do a product review of my etsy shop/ a specific pair of shorts. Here is the listing for the shorts (currently expired on etsy): These lace trimmed, distressed denim shorts are girly and chic. These were recreated from an old pair of Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker jeans. Since they were re-done, they are one of a kind. They are a size 4s.
I want a blogger who has 300+ followers and lives in the United States. More than one blogging platform preferred but not required. Also, must put up my button for my shop on their blog for at least 1 month. Reply or email me at if you are interested.
