Style: Chasing the Moon

I saw these silver earrings while browsing at The Little Mahatma during the OTR/Gateway Celebration a few weeks ago. The shop is filled with "exquisite jewelry, folk art & artifacts from many exotic lands" per their webpage, and the place delivers as promised--the cases and shelves lining every inch of the store are filled with everything from dramatic bejeweled earrings from India to heavily decorated gold collars from Morocco. The cloying scent of nag champa...

The beautiful weather and promise of barbecue has put me in a really good mood. I decided to wear this swishy skirt I picked up in Chicago and enjoy the dappled sunlight and cool breeze.

Red, Pink, and Blue Fashion Show

While browsing CincyChic one day, I came across the information for the Red Pink and Blue fashion show. Red Pink and Blue was developed by Candace of Art of the Spa to raise awareness and educate women about common women's health issues--specifically heart health (red), breast health (pink), and diabetes (blue). A fashion show, you say? I'm there! Fellow blogger Tina of Florida Girl Meets the Midwest and I decided to hit the event together. Amy,...

Do-It-Yourself Fashion

While I'm much too busy lazy to actually do anything about it, I've always loved the idea of do-it-yourself fashion. Unfortunately--or maybe fortunately--the height of my forays into hand-crafted apparel and accessories peaked right around the time of neon puffy paints and Jams shorts. However, my generosity compels me to share some of the best DIY tutorials from talented bloggers across the web. From bib necklaces to Miu Miu-inspired minis, here are some great ways to...

All the World's a Stage

I know what you're thinking:Β  Tamia, didn't you already take ridiculously self-indulgent photos in this outfit? Ah, but no, grasshopper. This is yet another jumpsuit I picked up during a thrift shopping adventure. One that sat lonely and unused in the trunk of my car until I rescued it in a half-hearted attempt at reorganization. Jumpsuit, vintage; belt and sunglasses, Gucci; sandals, Ash; bracelets and earrings from a craft fair. The similarity of the pieces is a total...

Shoe Shopping: LaDuca Trunk Show

Last week, I received an email from Cincy Chic about a trunk show at Cincy Designer Shoes in Hyde Park. Naturally, my raging shoe obsession compelled me to make my way over there to check things out. The trunk show was for LaDuca, a line of shoes created by Phil LaDuca, who has designed shoes for everyone from Penelope Cruz to Uma Thurman. The man knows his stuff--I'd been there less than two minutes before he...

Hangin' Out: OTR Gateway Celebration

This past weekend, The Boy and I braved the heat and humidity and hung out at the Over-the-Rhine/Gateway Celebration. We checked out some of the local vendors and marveled at the creative talent. You know I was all about the clothes and accessories! I bought a pair of earrings from Amy at Ovenfried Beads. Can't you see recreating a funkier version of the star necklace from the YSL Spring 2008 show with these star-shaped pendants? I smell...

Casual Style: Back in Black (Sandals)

Remember when I was desperately looking to buy black sandal-booties and then wound up getting the gray "ugly-but-cool" shoes instead? Well, I soon realized that I still needed black shoes. I love the gray booties, and while my favorite shade is holding down about 60% of my current wardrobe, there's nothing like a black shoe to really ground a look and toughen things up a bit. Soooo...
