oversized denim jacket 

 Denim jackets are a key layering piece in my spring wardrobe. I have two, and though I probably wear my cropped, more neutral one more, this one steals the spotlight whenever it gets some airtime. I picked it up a few years ago from the men’s section at a vintage store after searching high and low […]

   Even before I managed a shoe store, I knew what a key role they played in each and every outfit. Putting on a great pair of shoes is the quickest way to elevate whatever you’re wearing, and on the flip side, nothing will undermine your style more than  a scuffed up pair of kicks. […]
