Spring Trend: Photoreal Prints

Oooh I'm so excited for Spring fashion...BRIGHT COLORS& warmer weather (ugh there's snow outside my window right now), florals, um...idk sunlight!!

I've been seeing some CRAZY prints at work. I work at Forever 21at the moment (basically live there at this point of my life), so I get to see the trickle down effect from the runways constantly. I'm sure everyone has also noticed the printed legging craze all over lookbook, pinterest, tumblr...etc...

So just wanted to share some prints that look like an actual photograph, because I think they're super fun and right on trend at the moment. Enjoy.

Happy 2013! &Winter Whites

Happy 2013 Everyone...been away for a while...lots of craziness going on with the holidays. Lots of work and play, which leaves no time for finding finds!! :)

I'm excited for this year. My resolutions are usually the same. Be healthier, happier, and more creative. I  tend to put my artistic outlets to the side when I get really stressed out, but those are really the things that help the most! So I need to stop that! So more jewelry making, more blogging, and of course more drawing!! Need to do all those.

So in honor of fresh clean and new, I thought I'd start out with a winter white color blog. When I think of white, I think of a blank page. I've noticed white more and more in the winter, which was always thought to be a no-no in the fashion world, but no longer! Enjoy!

I was not able to find the original sources to some of these photos...they are not mine.
