while shopping for a client, i spied this amazing sweater and was oh so tempted to snag it up; but i'm trying my hand at this thing called money management...hopefully this neon siren will still be there when i'm ready for her in a few--i LOVE THE NEON. neon is all i'm living for right now. it drapes beautifully & is extremely light weight. gotta have it.

Bleach Blonde Frenzy: Blonde Summer Inspiration Via Ciara, Rihanna & KeKe Palmer

As we all know Rih has been rockin' the messy bleach blonde look for months now, in a way that few can.  But, for those of us who are fans of the ombre look and want a more practical way to try out blonde, I say look to Ciara; her dark 3" roots transition perfectly into the ombre.

Chic Sighting: Kim Kardashian at Debut of Kanye West Fall/Winter Fashion Line in Paris

OMG. I DIE. Kim's look is downright sickening. the neutral color palette. THE luscious FUR. i cannot. speak. She's also rocking a pair of Zanotti's designed by West for his line. Say what u want about this woman, but she looks ah-mazing. i've always been #TeamKimK
Stars such as the naturally gorgeous Alicia Keys and Swiss Beats, Common, Big Sean & Teyana Taylor made appearances.
Alicia looks divine below in black, with Rosario Dawson rocking a white ensemble.
Here are my favorite pix from Kanye West's Autumn/Winter 2012 line below! HIS LINE IS EXTRAORDINARY!!!! My ultimate favorite is the sheer long sleeved black top with the fur bottom, picture No. 14, six pictures down as well as picture No. 18.

Chicago Blogger Network teamed up with Jacqueline, founder of e-boutique Rad and Refined, for an awesome styling session as well as a chance to take a looksie at rad new inventory.
Jacqueline is a doll, her team is majorly ahh-mazing and the pieces are obviously RAD. I had a fab time, and picked up some hot Wildfox goodies--I love how unique her pieces are, cannot wait to rock 'em!

Thrift Chronicles: Volume II ($33 spent!)

i am loving all of these items! about half of them were 1/2 off their already cheap price tags! 
some of the deep burgundies & blues are not showing up true to color but i think u get the idea.
they're all men's sweaters fyi & they're all super flattering; i was careful to pick unique, essentials for spring that are nothing like anything i own.
