31 Days of Pro-Styling Tips: Get Out of Bed and GET DRESSED!

Last October I participated in a 31 days of challenge (hosted by The Nester.)  We pick a topic and write about it every day for the month of October (which has 31 days…..juuuuuuust in case you didn’t catch that.*)  I feel obliged to give you this link to last year’s 31 days, but I also […]



First, I need to get this off my chest: to all those who have the luxury of wearing “fashion” frames (20/20s,) I am helluh jealous!  I’ve got coke-bottle glasses eyesight.  I’m not even joking.  I can try on a cute pair of frames, but once you add the thick lens, the distortion is awful and […]



Is it sad that when I hear the word blow-out I think of babies and diapers, not brushes and blow-dryers?  I stopped by Kansas City’s new (and very first) beauty bar: Parlor.  If you find yourself on the Country Club Plaza, stop by even if it’s only to see the perfectly decorated interior.  It’s bright, clean […]

Art Fair via Wi-Fi

We Gonna Pahty Like It’s Yuh Buthday

Dress: Adrianna Papell  photos courtesy of Megan of Chasing Davies (thanks Meggy!) Do it I say, do it!  There are several reasons I […]

Falling Off The Wagon (and the best photo ever!)

The beginning of September brought us fashion shows from around the world.  I’ve been lucky enough to attend Kansas City Fashion Week (and all its’ parties,) and have gotten to experience the good, the bad and the ugly.  I’ve seen the KCFW team under stress and under the influence.  What I remember most is how […]
