A trend that I have been loving lately is the homemade fashion turban! I got the idea from Pinterest and ran with it! For today's post, I browsed my large collection of scarves and decided to spotlight this Colombian beauty with a vintage dress and coat from the 1970's. What I love most about the turban is that you can wear it at work, out on the town or for a holiday party. Whatever the case may be, it compliments my face/crazy hair and I love it! What do you think? Turb-tacular or stick to the wild locks? For more photos, dive right in!
I am loving this edgy look. Sometimes, you just gotta embrace your inner bad a**, right!?!?! These pieces do just that! Enjoy friends!

I have a confession. It's sad and pathetic but I feel that it is necessary to get it off of my chest. In the past couple of years, I have accumulated a ridiculous large wardrobe consisting of what I like to call the trio (grey, black and white). Even though I adore my relationship with the trio, I have come to the conclusion that I need to add more color in my collection. I need to start wearing clothing that matches my personality instead of what hides it.
Honestly, the main reason that I have stuck with the trio for so long is because they compliment my figure so well and (I'm sure many of you can relate) smooth out any parts that don't need to be highlighted...you know like a certain not so loving handle around the back area of the body? Haha.
So I have decided that the time has come to slowly break away from the trio. I don't think I'll ever be able to detach completely from the trio but hey, it's a start right?
Do you have any garment colors and/or prints that you tend to hide behind? I would love to hear them! Buenas tardes mi familia!

Call me old fashioned, but I love to write a good ole snail mail thank you letter whenever given the opportunity. I think it is a nice gesture to express your appreciation through writing. Anybody with me on this one?!
Charlie, I and the pups went on a long cross country road trip to Oregon this summer, and I must say it was a lot of fun! We were able to hang out with Charlie's friends that live there and explore one of the most beautiful cities in Oregon (Bend). Charlie's friends were excellent hosts during our visit, and they were so great. We had such a wonderful time!
With that being said, I am filled with so much joy to send them one of my homemade thank you illustration cards. Being an accessory designer, I like to create personal accessory sketches for the people that I am writing to. I think these illustrations fit our friends personalities perfectly.
Do you love a good ole fashioned thank you card? How do you feel about snail mail?
