Nothing Short of Chic: April 2015


Personal Style: A Pep Of Prep

Sweet and flirty, with a little pipkin of preppy style.

Hey guys! As before mentioned, I've been traveling for close to a month and I'm getting pretty tired of the limited clothing options I was able to bring with me. Turning to layering and accessories is pretty much the only way to stave off extreme fashion boredom, so I have yet another layered look today (why have I never thought of layering a button-down under a fit-and-flare before??). To give the outfit more interest, I rolled the sleeves of the button-down and unbuttoned an extra button under the bodice.


Leather & Fur: The Cruel Side Of Fashion?

Why is it that leather is chic but fur a crime?.

Visiting Italy was an incredible experience for me in many ways, and has created two week's worth of memories I'll likely never forget. I stayed mainly in Florence and developed an intimate relationship with the city in only eight days; and knowing how the city worked and its little things made my experience all the richer. As you probably know, Florence is one of the world's biggest leather capitals, which I got to see firsthand. Street merchants selling leather handbags to anyone who would take them; streets lined with handmade leather goods stores including everything from journal covers to bags to shoes; and row upon row of wallets displayed in the outdoor market in San Lorenzo.
