BEAUTY & STYLE - November 6, 2017

I have expensive taste. I always have. Ever since I was a child and didn’t understand what monetary value was, I would go straight for the most expensive item on the menu or want the fanciest toy in the store. My instincts point to the finer things in life; so I really enjoy looking at Net-a-Porter.  This habit of mine is one part dream casting/manifesting and one part just plain window shopping – here are a few of the items I’ve saved for my someday closet.

DREAM CASTING - someday closet 1

Vilshenko | Anais floral-print silk-georgette maxi dress | $601.50

GUCCI | Printed silk crepe de chine midi dress | $3,900

DREAM CASTING - someday closet 2

GUCCI | Lace and plissé-georgette dress | $5,150


I love the vintage look of all these dresses. One of my goals for 2018 is the wear a vintage dress at every Thinkspace Gallery opening for a year. It’s a fun creative way to express my style, and I have somewhere to go to rock my finds. Obviously, these dresses aren’t vintage, but they inspire what I’ll be on the hunt for.

Road Trip Style Re-do With Modcloth

BEAUTY & STYLE - March 7, 2016

As a ModCloth affiliate, I was super excited to receive the request to create a blog post around their new romantic road trip styles. Since I am a certified road trip junkie I thought about what adventures I’d like to re-do with a stylish Modcloth wardrobe.  When I packed for our cross country road trip, versatility and comfort were my top priority. I wore a lot of t-shirts and jeans, but seriously wish I had a few cuter options. Here are my Modcloth curated outfits I’d like to wear and re-do these particular adventures in, purely for better photo-ops!

Afternoon at the Opry
AFTERNOON AT THE OPRY // We went to the Grand Ol’ Opry’s 89th Birthday show and if it wasn’t raining that day, I would have totally worn this instead!

  1. Hep Your City Top
  2. Chevron the Up and Up Necklace
  3. Five Star Perforating Flat in Cognac
  4. Jill of All Shades Skirt

Modcloth Roadtrip Style
Meet Me In Muscle Shoals // Visiting Muscle Shoals recording studio in Alabama will go down as one of my favorite memories of my life. It was just Bowerbird, myself, and the “museum” manager – it was awesome!!

  1. Course of Nature Backpack 
  2. On The Cookout Top
  3. Cache Crop Jeans
  4. Beauteous Backup Battery Pack in Floral
  5. Wander Years Booties

Modcloth Road Trip Style
A Reservation for Two // I packed one nice outfit for a fancy dinner at Husk Restaurant in South Carolina, there are two parts to this story (Part 1 / Part 2) and if I would have gone in the summer, I’d love to have worn the above.

  1. Groovy Gallery Dress
  2. Who’s The Emboss? Bag in Navy
  3.  Escape to the Cape Wedges
  4. Precisely! Liquid Eyeliner in Black (I also need my winged liner)

The items I selected for my road trip re-do outfits are also all completely realistic! I took into account how the material wrinkles, how that external battery would be essential in the middle of nowhere, and I know it’s crazy – but I did back a whole bag  just for shoes on that trip. Although I did try to pack the basics on my road trip, a girl still needs her options.
