Tinseltown Glam

A huge thanks to my perfect style match, my best friend Kendall, for taking the photos. Los Angeles, I missed you! I’ve had so much fun relaxing with my family and friends over fall break in my treasured hometown. Long lazy lunches at Huckleberry and retail therapy with my mom are just what the doctor ordered after a week of pesky midterms. I wore this outfit to a dinner date with my girlfriends. I’m typically not one to wear all black, but I felt chic in this minimalist ensemble. Modern easy glamour is hard to come by, but this Bardot…

How-to: Braided Crown

La Bichette, a new hair and makeup studio right across the street from SMU, brings a country-French feel to Dallas. I had the pleasure to create a simple hair tutorial with the red-headed mother daughter duo behind La Bichette, Marsha and Tammy Coleman.

This is Tammy, the brilliant and beautiful hairstylist behind the final look. Tammy’s favorite childhood memories are of watching her mom, Marsha,…

I was glad I stuck to happy hues instead of over-the-top prints. These sweet and feminine pieces are sure to win over his mama, so you lovebirds can…

Wedding Wednesday

I haven’t been to a wedding since I was the flower girl’s age. A friend of our family is saying “I do!” in three weeks, so the shopping clock is ticking! Now that I’m old enough to dress myself, I’ve been online shopping for days. Looking for an outfit with feminine details and a romantic feel, I finally found this RED Valentino bow dress and built the rest of my outfit around it. If bubble gum pink isn’t your cup of tea, the dress also comes in navy. What’s your most memorable wedding moment? For more wedding wonderfulness, check out…

Day 5: Runway to Reality

Here’s the last set of clothes graciously provided by Neimans and shot by Christos Patelis. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the series! I had so much fun putting it together! Would you guys like to see a similar series in the future? Photo courtesy of Style.com I’m always looking for fun ways to amp up my casual clothes for class, and leather trimming is one of my favorite fall embellishments. This bold blue Bailey 44 shirt is feminine, fierce and easy to throw on before your deathly 8 a.m. class. I originally fell in love with Thakoon’s Pink Patent Leather…
