Preppy in Plaid

[ Scarf, Gap, similar here; White Sweater, Gap, similar here; Bag, Louis Vuitton Artsy; Red Jeans, Jessica Simpson, here; Black boots, Michael Michael Kors, very similar newer style here; Black Satchel, Tory Burch, love this style here; Black winter coat, Calvin Klein, old, but this one is super cute here ]

So, as of recently, I have been trying to reinvent my wardrobe. As such, purchasing more timeless, classic pieces. The start of my journey began when I bought this beautiful plaid scarf at the Gap (on sale!) I have been on the hunt for a cozy, bright red, plaid scarf for quite some time now. I really wanted the infamous Burberry plaid scarf, but due to already having two other Burberry scarves (yes, I realize I have a problem, and no, I'm not sorry about it), I thought I should probably be a little more frugal with such a bold piece. I didn't realize how much of a statement this scarf made with anything I wore! I like it most with neutrals.
With all this being said, I know this scarf will stay in my closet for many years, as I hope the items that I will be purchasing from now on will also. 

What are some of your favorite staple pieces in your closet?
Thank you so much for reading!!!

I'm back!!!! After a year..

Hi, Beauties!!
Thank you so much for reading! This is the first post on my new adventure.

I just started my career as a Qualified Mental Health and Intellectual Disabilities Professional, and it is the most rewarding, albeit tiresome work around. Within the mental health field, there isn't much of an emphasis on fashion (obviously, there are bigger issues). So, with that being said, I'm starting this blog up again for my personal interest and to share with others what I love most and that is fashion, style, and anything that sparkles * 

I can't wait to share this adventure with you, and I hope you feel the same.
a "real" post will come shortly!!

In the mean time, Please follow me on Instagram (updated daily)!

Chanel Love

{Scarf, Chanel, vintage}

I have been meaning to post these photos for about a month now. I found this beautiful vintage Chanel scarf online, and I just HAD to buy it! I love the chain detailing and the bright pink color. It definitely makes for a more cheerful, chilly winter day.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with family and friends!

Clipping for Keeps

Whenever I read my monthly fashion magazines, there are so many inspiring pieces and designs that I adore in each one. Well, after years of ripping out pages and throwing them all in a drawer or box, I decided to make a fashion book! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.
I am also a huge sucker for cute notebooks/journals. I basically collect them, and lately I've been trying to actually use them. I write a lot, but mostly for school, work, and I journal a little as a coping skill. However, I never journal enough to fill all of the books! Now, I have thought of an efficient and organized way to fill my journals and keep the fashion inspirations in the same spot.
Do you have a fashion book?

All That Glitters is Gold

Welcome to my new blog :)

{ white bag, balenciaga; glitter booties, barefeet shoes - find them here }
{ black blouse & gold sequin dress, both from t.j. maxx }

This holiday season is all about gold glitter and I can't get enough of it!
When there is gold or glitter around, I am like a moth to a flame. Everyone arounds me knows how much I love sparkles, sequins, glitter, etc. So, it comes as no surprise that everyday I am decked out in something gold and/or glittery. 
Some may call it tacky, I call it fun!
