Rain, Rain, Go Away
I put this blog on hiatus over the weekend, hoping the weather that has been seriously cramping my style would pass. However, today was colder and cloudier than ever, meaning it was jeans, boots, and a big coat for me. Today, function won out over fashion. Fortunately, good weather is supposed to return soon. Or at least, I am going to run out of “functional” clothing and have no...
The Importance of a Shopping Buddy
We all have one. Maybe two if we’re lucky. The person in our lives who we just love to go shopping with. You have similar styles, or at least similar tastes, love all the same stores, and always seem ready to begin and leave at about the same time.

What does everyone...

Local designers are not only amazingly talented, but very passionate and friendly people. I know one of their biggest struggles is...
Summer of Dresses
On Friday, PopFizz Daily, one of my go-to websites and blogs for everything Minneapolis, alerted me to a very exciting movement this summer: Summer of Dresses! Armed with a posterous blog and a twitter hashtag, four girls have declared Summer 2010 the “Summer of Dresses” and are inviting followers around the world to email in pictures of themselves pant-free (because skirts count...
