    Gift Ideas for the Lover of Fashion

    The holiday season is quickly approaching and I don’t know about you, but I love to give personalized gifts.  Personalized gifts don’t necessarily mean they have to be monogrammed, but they should reflect each persons individual style.  I like to put a lot of thought into what my receiver will like.  I was so lucky to discover Chic on Paper which specializes in custom fashion illustrations.  This is a perfect gift for the fashion lover in your life, of any age.

    Matching sets and why you need them!

      Matching sets are your new best friend!  We’ve all been there right? A closet packed with clothes but the never-ending dilemma of having nothing to wear? Let’s get to the bottom of this. You get sucked into the friends & family coupon you have received in your inbox. You browse the site and start adding things to your cart. Nothing you need right now, but these are all things that you “might need someday”. I remember specifically buying a dress with the thought of wearing it at a cafe on the Italian coast. I pictured myself sitting there drinking a coffee overlooking the Mediterranean. It was the perfect dress…
