ThredUp Round Up

After publishing an exposé on my personal shopping habits earlier this week I had so many of you message me on social media to tell me about ThredUp! I’ll be honest, y’all; I had never heard of ThredUp till last week and I can’t thank you enough for encouraging me to check it out! I’ve already placed my first order and am anxiously awaiting its arrival! I scored an all-designer-label outfit for $154, which retailed for almost $950. Beyond the great deals though something that I really love about ThredUp is that you’re not going to see these outfits duplicated. You can buy an entire, head-to-toe look and know you’re wearing items that were at one time lovingly chosen by another woman… many other women, in fact! Getting to create an entire, matching ensemble pulled from a dozen women’s closets is fascinating and exciting! You’re giving these pieces a new lease on life and a chance to be loved all over again in a new way!

COFFEE FIRST Sequin Sweatshirts // SS16 Collection

Since 2011 I’ve been creating sequin embellished apparel (see herehere & here!) and selling my designs since 2014 (see here & here!). I’ve always had a special place in my heart for sequins! Last year, in October, I released my first all-sequin embellished line of short-sleeve sweatshirts to the public! The most popular design was the “Coffee First” sweatshirt and was sold out before I even uploaded them to my online boutique! I had people texting, e-mailing, PM-ing, Tweeting and Instagram-ing me, BEGGING to buy the sweatshirt after I posted the first teaser image on Instagram! Because of that incredible popularity (and the countless inquiries I’ve received since!) I decided to release the Coffee First 2.0 just in time for Spring!

Blush, Black & Gold NYE Party

I love creating mock tableaus for inspiration when I’m planning a party. Even if I end up changing my outfit or party table layout, making a ‘practice’ run always gets my creative juices flowing! Today I’m sharing with you a little NYE party decor and outfit inspiration I shot last weekend at my house. Scroll to the end of the post for details on where I found all the pieces for the entire look. I hope you enjoy!

The Laundress Holiday Collection & SoHo Flagship Store Opening

I immediately fell in love with The Laundress brand after trying their Fabric Fresh Spray in September and have been choosing their products for my laundry care needs ever since. I’m a huge proponent of natural and gentle cleaning and nixing the harsh chemicals and overpowering scents found in most popular products. The Laundress is everything I ever wanted from a cleaning products company and more. Last month I blogged about my October favorites and included their Fabric Fresh Spray. A few days later the lovely Christine sent me the sweetest e-mail asking if I wanted to try out some products from their newly launched limited edition seasonal line. Of course I said yes!
