If somebody asked me to name all my fashion icons, Blake Lively would *definitely* be high up on the list. I love her sandy blonde, wind-swept hairstyle (which she reportedly cuts HERSELF!), her versatility in choice of outfits, and her amazing ability to look great in ANYTHING she wears. The Savages actress was fashionably drenched in head-to-toe Gucci for the Gucci Spring 2014 show at Milan Fashion Week. And she was seated in the… Read More

I enjoy this trend with graphical prints and structural designs, but I always like to give a nod… Read More
#1. You remember that time when you were in your graduation class at high school and everybody was like, “You’re gonna miss it when it’s all over.”??? This is me when high school was over. #2. My relationship with chocolate is only that real. #3. That awkward moment when my best friend’s boyfriend just won’t leave… #4. And then there were those times when I’d bump into somebody who I was really… Read More
