Going on a Style Tour!

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I've been trying to think of a way to help Dress for Success Cincinnati, and decided to combine it with something I'd already been thinking about. I love to shop, but spend way too much time doing it online (where it is darn convenient, I grant you), and not enough supporting local independent boutiques.

What? It's a real movement. Clothes...

Dries-y and Breezy

Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a style rut? You know, skirt + blouse, pants + cardigan, jeans + tee, blahblahblah boring. I hate that. When I do feel that way, I look elsewhere for style inspiration--usually to my fellow bloggers or recent designer collections. I was procrastinating doing research and checking out some of my favorite blogs, when I came across a photo from Dries Van Noten's Spring 2010 collection. I immediately remembered a...
