home fashion

Happy Labor day! Hope you're NOT laboring, but getting to spend time with your family, and enjoy the amazing weather, or maybe do some Labor Day sale shopping??
So, me and 2 of my sweet friends Amanda and Becky have a booth together, and it has been so fun to get to use our creative/decorating sides and actually put them to use!
Have also been helping people with their homes and also getting to find tons of great unique finds along the way for our booth and also for clients.
The same rules that I have for fashion in clothing applies to your home as well. You don't have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars to make your home chic and fabulous. You have to be willing to hunt and be creative to make something that may to one person look just like a blah table, but you can look at it and see SO many possibilities!
That what we've loved about doing our booth together is finding "normal" ho hum pieces and redoing them or updating them to be unique one of kind fabulous pieces!
If you're in the Nashville area, be sure to go check out or booth/booths and see all the fabulous finds we put in there..Anything from Modern, Mid-century, Primitive,Cottage, Anthro "ish",etc.. something for everyone!
Its at the Downtown Antique Mall on 8th ave in Nashville, TN
Here's some pics of pieces we have, and we're always bringing new things in weekly, so its always new!

Tell me some of your favorite "redo's" that were unique and fabulous, and you didn't have to spend a ton on!?

Business Casual for Fall

Happy weekend folks, hope yall are having a great one, and not to blistering hot.. its pretty hot here, all I want is to be indoors, or in a pool!

I had a request to put together some business casual outfits for the Fall.
Yes, its hard to imagine wearing fall clothes right now, but frankly it makes me happy to think of not breaking a sweat by just opening my door to go outside!

So here was the request:
“Business Casual” for the Fall
-no jeans, spaghetti straps, open toed shoes, capris
-no t-shirts with logos
Shoes have to be comfortable because there will be walking. And things that do not make me look like tool or frumpy!"
(thank you Abby)

Well, here are some ideas for all of you that are getting back to work, or maybe even just want some looks that are put together, if you're going out, and don't break the bank.
All of these pieces are very affordable, and always under $50 each.

Here's to fall, it gives me hope to get out of this fog of humidity and sweat!

I know this set has "jeans" in it, but they are trouser jeans, and most company's allow this, if you're does not, just switch to some black trouser pants, or dark navy.

Put this cardi over the strapless and add the belt. I know a lot of you shy away from strapless, but you're going to be covered the whole time, the reason I choose this or maybe a tank under cardi's is it doesn't add bulk, so you have a smooth line on top, who wants to add lumps??

Add some tights/leggings and you're ready to go!

I know I put a "spaghetti strap" top, but again its will be COVERED with the cardigan!

This set is so flattering on every shape. The top hides a lot, but the belt defines your waist, and how fabulous are the shoes? and comfy, I think so!

Hope you're day is full of happy thoughts of fall to come!

Target Promotion 15% off!!

Hello world,
Wanted to let you know about Target's online sale today and tomorrow only:

So you get 15% off of Target's already low prices, and usually you can get free shipping when you spend over $50 or $100, which if you're like me is about as easy as a menstrual woman finding chocolate!

Here's some of my favorite finds:

Love this Merona multi colored strapless dress, and only $39.99!

This is a great basic denim button up by Mossimo to layer, put a skinny belt around it and a pencil skirt and you have an instant dressed up look! And its only $19.99

Love this zebra print pencil skirt by Merona, I'm not usually a fan of zebra print, a little too safari for me, but this one looks elegant and chic, and at $19.99 you can't beat it.

Here's a great transitional for fall/winter/spring trench coat by Coffee Shop, I'm a big fan of trench coats, you can make them very traditional or flip up the collar and its instantly more modern and hip. And its on sale for $35.00!

And remember all of those with an extra 15% off! Happy Shopping!
