There is nothing more I adore than a satin robe. At home, I pretty much live in a robe so taking my robe from loungewear to streetwear is a dream come true. There are so many ways to play with the pajama trend. I’m sure it seems intimidating and no one wants to look like they are actually going to bed. I like working in just one element that is pajama-inspired into my look. I have a few suggestions if you want to try this trend. Continue reading

Get your life!! Continue reading

This past summer I went to a t-shirt party with my best friend and the party was packed. I looked around the room and saw people of all shapes and sizes rocking their shirts. I realized that people like t-shirts. Duh, right? More than that people see t-shirts as a moment of self-expression. You can speak your mind, pledge your allegiance, or rep your squad on the front of your shirt. Continue reading
