Pastries & Portraits II x Smile A Day

 

In an effort to challenge myself and push my personal growth I have been trying to participate in activities/experiences that make me uncomfortable. One of those acts is going to events alone.

Closet Essentials: The Fringe Bag

It works for all seasons too! Some may not agree… But to me that’s exactly what makes personal style…..PERSONAL. So in doing my research I found some wonderful affordable and (not so affordable) bags I would add to the wardrobe. Check out my picks below.

So dropping copious amounts of money on some Chanel boots isn’t in the cards for me (FOR NOW). A girl can dream (or stop eating out so much and buying Hennessy on the weekend) Here are the five items that I have starry eyes for this week.
