NCJW Pittsburgh Designer Days 2015

Any girl in her early 20’s who tries to be stylish while staying on budget knows that doing so is no easy feat. When I stumbled upon the National Council of Jewish Women’s (NCJW) Pittsburgh Designer Days event, I was pleasantly surprised. New and gently used designer label clothing, shoes and accessories for an affordable price is every girl’s dream.

20 Things I Learned Before Turning 20

Wow, I’ve been alive for TWO DECADES! That actually blows my mind. As one of my first entries after my posting hiatus, I decided to share some of the life lessons I’ve learned in the past year!  ONE // You are what you do.

I never thought I would jump on that bandwagon, but after seeing tons of bloggers and celebs embrace the trend, I had to find the perfect way to make it happen. While white on white isn’t practical for everyday wear, I wanted to incorporate some bright whites and take them from a day to night look with the help of the fabulous Miss.Glambition.  DAY  Top / Skirt (on sale!) / Sandals  Sunglasses / Bag / Bracelets (1, 2, 3) / Pearl Bracelet… View Post

While I have a while until I can actually talk about going back to school, I’m thrilled to be off of my writing hiatus to bring you a few of my favorites from July! 1.
