Snapshots Of My Style

Instagram is an excellent platform to showcase your personal style and get inspired by others. As a self declared social media junkie, I'd have to say that Instagram > Facebook > Twitter, in that order. Boom.

Take a peek at mine!

Sip on free champagne while shopping and accessorizing all under one roof.

The Art of Mixing Prints

I'm not a big fan of wearing perfectly and meticulously matched outfits. In fact, my favorite outfits consist of opposing elements that usually don't go together but when they do, they create a pleasing juxtaposition. For example, toss a tough leather jacket on top of a lacey dress. Wa-la! You're a walking contradiction.

Contradictions are interesting and attractive.
So are mixed patterns. Another of my favorite mixed elements are stripes and floral. In a way, these two are contradictions; stripes are orderly, straight, and composed. Floral prints are spontaneous.

I wore a stripe and floral combo the other day, (The lesser quality photos below...ahem). I also paired the outfit with a tough, studded backpack for even more of a contradiction.

The first picture looks like I have a very muscular quad....
