Step Up Your Ponytail Game with These Styles

I’m always searching for easy ways to update my hair. Most days I’ll wear it down or in a ponytail…in other words, I’m in dire need of a hair switch-up.  Fashion Week is nearly halfover, providing us with plenty of inspiration for warm weather hairstyles or simply, plenty of new braids and ponytail ideas. I’ve […]

Tied with a Bow

Catbird‘s always my go-to when it comes to delicate jewelry, but those creative minds aren’t just reserved for hammering out alphabet and first-knuckle rings.

En Pointe

Being the epitome of elegance and grace, ballerinas have been the inspiration behind many timeless trends. Fortunately there are numerous ways to copy the look without appearing as though you are waiting in the wings. The tulle skirt has seen a rise in popularity ever since Carrie Bradshaw roamed the congested streets of New York […]

Pretty Plaits

Braids, particularly fishtails, were prevalent throughout the spring 2013 runways. Although the style is surely reminiscent of those elementary school days, these versions are both polished and quirky, allowing for an easy transition from the workday to a night out. One of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, has featured a fishtail tutorial that shows […]
