Catapulted back to a time when firsts are fresh and school is cool. Clutching metal lunchboxes and worrying about who you’ll sit next to in the school bus, life seemed larger and mysterious and exciting at that time. In a lot of ways, it still is.

A provocative, avant-garde twist to a typically mannish military-inspired style with its body contouring form, roughed up with ruching details and silver hardware, add to that the alluring dip of the neckline that can go deeper, zipped down. The modest hem length balances out the sexy, just a couple or so inches above the knee; […]

Livening things up in the t-shirt and jeans front are two fantastic details in active rotation: Printed Jeans AND Distressed Jeans. Casual and hip, tough and urban. They’re just the right amount of oomph the simple look needs to make the style staple a little more interesting. But you can’t wear them both at the […]

Q1 of 2012, I decided that I want to wear more skirts. Different kinds. I noticed that I’ve already started with a modest skirt collection but I also noticed that the selection isn’t varied enough.
