Adding Color

I have written in the past about how my attempts to add color to my wardrobe – my clothes are mainly neutrals, and not just that, but cool toned ones – as in predominantly black, gray, and white.

Weekend Update

1. I saw this bag on a lady the other day in a different color combination, and had to ask her where it was from. When she said “Gucci,” I thought that it made total sense – this bag…

On Wallets

Some people that I know – both men and women – seem to love collecting wallets. I’ve never been a wallet hoarder myself. My vice has always been handbags! So imagine my surprise when I went to gather all…

Weekend Update

1. I keep trying to add more color to my wardrobe, but it’s just so hard (why does black always end up looking like the best color?). I’ve come to realize though, that it’s harder for me to do…

The Diaper Bag

I’ve received a lot of questions about diaper bags, and what I’ve been using. I finally got the chance to take some pictures of my most frequently used bags for baby – and, since he’s now three months old, I feel…
