It really doesn’t take a lot to put together a foxy outfit. All the women I took photos of in NYC were wearing outfits I can replicate for way less, any day of the week. Just to give you an idea of how to put together a sassy outfit on the cheap, I’ve put together some collages for you. Let me know what you think.

free pearls for moms.

Let’s face it, even though I’m not exactly earning a living with this blogging business, it does come with some pretty great perks. Like being invited to a Goldsmith Jewelers red carpet event with a bunch of hot Utah bloggers.

Alma, Kelsey, and me on the red…

felt flower barrettes.

I’ve gone a little crazy for all things felted or felty or felt. Must be all the bright colors and the simplicity of the graphics you get when working with the stuff.
