Go Wild With Primal Prints

AnimalPrints

Animal prints have been all over this season but it’s mostly leopard that’s been spotted.  Don’t forget that zebra, cowhide, giraffe and tiger can be tasteful too when styled properly! Stick to basic neutrals, which will let the print pop and will prevent your outfit from entering dangerous territory.

Nothing says holidays more than a scarf knit by grandma, but recently the classic hobby has been gaining popularity amongst a younger set. I blogged about some unusual designer knit items a few weeks ago and since then I’ve seen a plethora of products that make the technique easier than ever to master.  Check out Wool & the Gang’s knit kits, complete with instructions aimed at beginners, glow in the dark knitting needles and even pretty pottery bowls for keeping yarn under control.  Now you have no excuse to not get involved!

Holiday1

Having just gotten back from a relaxing weekend in south Florida, I was inspired to put together some “bohemian romantic” looks, from 2011 runway cruise collections to some street style (err, beach style) pics I stumbled across online.  Perfect for anyone who’s planning on having a holiday in the sun or, at the least, something to gaze at that’s not a sweater, a picture of a turkey or a Black Friday sale sign!

Shop Smart Sunday #2

smartshop

Happy Sunday! If you’re headed out to shop at the mall, make a list like you would for the grocery store. Let this “to-buy” list become a permanent feature on your fridge or desk, adding items whenever you spot them.  Check back frequently, cross off anything you’ve lost interest in and whatever persists are your best bets.  This will help prevent impulse shopping and is a great way to make sure the items you truly need finally make their way into your closet.
