Let it Shine

These pants evoke numerous nicknames - mermaid pants, Cambodian pants and sometimes people just have to ask "what are those?!". Talk about pants power! Either way, I love 'em. There's a semi-geeky story behind them, but only fellow fashion fanatics would truly understand so I'll save it for a rainy day. 

The necklace is newly acquired, picked it up at Chicago Fashion Week's shopping event in Millennium Park over the weekend. The boyf chose (& purchased) it and I couldn't help but love it too as I do with everything tortoise shelled. xxo, davee

photoshoots + etcetera

today was a long day for the girls & i at Secrets Fashion Agency, we had a 10AM photocall for an upcoming fashion show. then the tables were turned on us as we were put in front of the cameras for the I AM MPLS promo shoot. last year, i covered the event so i got to see firsthand just how amazingly vast the talent was. with that being said, it's such an honor for us to be nominated for this year's show. plus, it's produced by one of my favorite people in mpls - Sarah Edwards, who btw, has killer style (lusting after the leopard print kimono and strappy boots she had on today!!). 

here are some fun candids from a day in the life... check back on the Secrets Fashion Agency blog in a couple days for a sneak peek of the actual looks. enjoy!!

sorry i've been a little MIA, blame mnfashion week & my annual Chicago shopping haul w/the besties. i feel especially bad since i've had numerous readers during my hiatus tell me how much they love reading this blog :( but not to worry, i'm back with full force y'all! 

amazing things happened (and were acquired) during my chicago trip -- including meeting the generously humble owner of akira chicago. if you do not already know who they are, you NEED to click on the link. i'll be updating the Secrets Fashion Agency blog about that experience alongside some visuals, so be sure to check that out. i'll leave you with what i wore to work today (sans the goth purple lipstick) and yes that is a pen in my hair - totally office appropriate, mind you. got this mustard skirt last winter on clearance, pretty much one of the best investment pieces ever since mustard is huge this fall. i added just the bare minimum when it came to accessories because sometimes all you need is a simple, clean silhouette and a classic accessory or two. xxo
