Nashville Fashion Week via My iPhone

Often we get so caught up in trying to be the best blogger we can be that we forget to have a good time ourselves. Sometimes you just have to shut off the camera and take it all in. Nashville Fashion Week was full of exciting events, fashion shows and fabulous people. However, it was a trying one for me...unexpected emergency doctors visits kept me from getting the full experience I had anticipated.  (Note to Self: rent a hotel or a loft for the entire week next season)

Make it Work

Tim Gunn is hosting a Fashion Show tomorrow at The Mall at Green Hills...
The show is at 1PM followed by a Q and A! What do you want to ask Tim Gunn?

My Next Vintage Purchase: Chanel Chain Belt

I have a small/medium size collection of Designer Vintage Pieces I've been collecting since high school... My favorites? Vintage Halston, Moschino, Pucci, Missoni and Dior. I have yet to purchase vintage Chanel and actually hold on to it. Normally I resale it after using it a time or two. Lately I've been lusting over vintage chain Chanel belts and I think it's finally time to invest in one! After seeing the belt below I think I may want something similar... However, I feel like smaller charms will be a bit more timeless than these over-sized ones.

 It seems that my friend Drew and I are always on the same page when it comes to home decor... I re-pinned these from his Pinterest.

Color the World

(via tumblr)
No matter how hard I try I can't bring myself to buy and/or wear color. I think it looks great on everyone else... but my life long love affair with black and neutrals always seems to cloud my judgement and sway my spending. However I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share these fabulous/inspiring photos I found  tumblr. 

To Wear or Not to Wear: Pajama Inspired Pants

(photos via google search)
We all know it will never be chic to wear your pajamas to the store... I for one won't even wear sweats in public unless it's at the gym (which I don't go to as often as I should).
 However... lately we have been seeing Pajama Inspired Pants popping up everywhere. Several of our favorite fashionistas have been out and about these over-sized printed pants. What do you think about this trend? Love It or Hate It? 
I purchased a pair several months back from Forever 21. Finally wore them to lunch just the other day... while they were VERY comfy I'm still unsure how I really feel about them.

The most random collection of inspiration pics...but I happen to find them very inspirational. 

New Beauty Obsession: Sugar Rose Lip Treatment

Sugar Rose Lip Treatment with SPF 15 has a hint of a berry stain that brings out your lips natural pink tones.

Last month I received a free Sugar Lip Treatment duo from Sephora for the birthday rewards program. Normally I just hoard samples and trial size items into my beauty closet... never to really mess with them again. But this time I decided to throw one of them into my a.m cosmetic bag and test it out. Recently my lips have been slightly chapped/dry... so why not try it out? Never in 27 years have I had an issue with dry lips until now and I've even stopped tanning (maybe it's due to some recent changes in my life/body). 
Just one morning after using it I was VERY impressed. The second lip treatment in the duo made its way into my purse the same night. After using it for nearly a month every morning/night and throughout the day I can't imagine going a single day without it and I love its faint lemon scent. You MUST try it out for yourself!

Olivia Palermo Love

(via zimbio)
I haven't posted anything related to Ms. Palermo in months. So I thought I'd make up for it with a huge post dedicated to her and her amazing style.

A Gift for Myself

Do you remember THIS post about the Banane Taipei Bags? It was a gift idea for my birthday... However, I decided to order it for myself. Now I'm just waiting for it to come in. After weeks of trying to pick a color...I ordered it in Mystique Brown

Neon Yellow

If you have followed my blog for a while you know I AM NOT A FAN OF COLOR. 99% of my wardrobe is black.However, there's nothing wrong with adding in a few neon accessories.  I love the shoes and bag that the Werelse Girls (Chiara, Andy and Carolina) created for their collaboration with Mango.  Both pieces will be available worldwide April 15th.

If colored accessories aren't for you try rocking this chic yellow nail color: Al Fredo from MAC. The lovely girl working at the MAC counter in Macy's the other night was rocking it and I loved it! 

Seat Obsession: Lexington Modern

Lexington Modern is most def my new favorite site. Amazing pieces at amazing prices. Check it out HERE! These are the chairs I've picked to replace some of the seating in my townhouse...  What do you think? Clear for the Dinning Room because I'm obsessed with THIS picture (I posted a few weeks back here):
