Use vintage clip-on earrings to add some interest to a plain pair of heels!  (Can you tell I love finding uses for those? Like here and here.)

Beauty Tuesdays: Beauty Sleep

After a sleepless night, I wake up and realize just how important and necessary a good night's rest is. Maybe it's because at that point I'm grumpy and in denial that I really do have to get up and face the day (I'm so not a morning person anyway), but that's the first thing on my mind: sleep is crucial. (And then, I usually daydream about the next time I get to sleep.) So here are some of my tips for catching some z's. After all, doesn't every girl need her beauty rest?

Ensemble Saturdays: I'll Love You Fur-ever

There's something about fur that gives you the warm-fuzzies, and it's not just because it's warm and fuzzy.  There can be such a look and feel of elegance to it.  Trรจs Luxe.  Faux fur is not a faux pas.

Beauty Tuesdays: Pin, Pin, Bang, Bang

Bangs.  The ever lifelong dilemma that us girls face.  Should I grow them out?  Get them cut?  Side-swept?  Chunky?  It's kind of like how girls with straight hair want a way to have curly hair.  And those with curly locks strive for a pin-straight do.

Ensemble Saturdays: A Bit of Refinement

I felt like getting dressed up for no particular reason!  Ever have days like that?  Sometimes I think they're a must!  An outfit can turn a day around.

2 Minute Necklace Update

One Monday night while watching one of my reality faves, Giuliana and Bill, on Style Network, I was inspired by a MyStyle Quick Tip during a commercial break.  It reminded me of how I updated some bracelets, so I decided I'd give it a spin of my own!

Ensemble Saturdays: Vintage Detailing

Recently the hubby and I rendezvoused for lunch on the Delmar Loop - a fun, hip, eclectic street in St. Louis known for its quirky boutiques and wide array of restaurants, an all-around amazing hang-out.

Beauty Tuesdays: Vintage Hair Clips

You may remember when I updated some of my vintage earrings from having clip-on or screw-on backs to having post-backs.  Well, I wanted to share with you another use for the ones that are still in their original clip-on forms.
