Mullet Dresses

Mullet Dresses

mullet dresses are one of my new favorite trends! ever since my sister in law bought me a fun black and white printed mullet dress from modcloth for christmas, i can't get enough of them!

are you into this "business in the front party in the back" trend?

malak.ni bowties

my friend angel is one of the most stylish people i know! she is so creative with her outfits and is bold enough to wear menswear. not only does she have a style all her own, but she translates it into her very own bowtie line malak.ni.


her fall/winter collection transformation was so impressive! my favorites were her reversible bowties and her asymmetrical neckties.


she even asked me to be a part of the shoot! it was so much fun. i'm really looking forward to her spring/summer collection and what she has in store. stay tuned...

Paris on a Rainy Day

Paris on a Rainy Day

now, i know some of you may be getting snow right about now, but we here in nashville will usually get rain in the winter. crummy weather usually calls for a lot of daydreaming... of say, paris? i'm also daydreaming about that burberry coat...

naked cakes


you love it or hate it.

...or there's people like me who are kind of in-between. i can't eat gobs of frosting, but i still enjoy it in moderation. this is where (what i like to call) the naked cake comes in. you still get the slightest taste of frosting between the layers, but it's not overbearing.

here are some naked cakes that look delish!

confetti cake via oh happy day

poppyseed cake with mascarpone frosting via not without salt

tiered and flowered cake via sparkle and hay

even hillary duff's wedding cake was frosting-less!

hillary duff's cake via marry you me

i could see these being hard to make! frosting can cover up your cake mistakes so well- you would definitely have to cut them out of the pan perfectly!

have you ever made a frostingless cake? how did it turn out?

the golden globes

what's the best part of award shows? the fashion of course!

here are some of my faves from the red carpet:

Julie Bowen in Reem Acra
i'm still loving this color for spring 2012... i even had my bridesmaids wear this color in my wedding last year! the fit is great and the sleeves are gorgeous! very grace kelly!

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci
the slicked back hair, the dark look, the cutouts... it's all so fitting for her!

Joseph Gordon Levitt
who doesn't love joseph gordon levitt? i mean, come on! he looks so sharp with the black on black piping on his suit and his cute little bow tie. so slick and handsome.
