Tired of your old jeans?  These DIY projects transform your old denim in a flash!  The colorful dyed-denim by State of Unique really caught my eye (I'll just swap out the spring colors for a fall palette!)

​Need some jeans to get started?  Check out some of these at Style Therapy.  I'd love to see the Versace jeans made into cut-off shorts!

Circling Back Around: Backpacks Are Back!

It took me a bit of time to warm up to backpacks.  Unfortunately they are a reminder of my least fashionable decade (the 90's), but I've been a little nostalgic for that back-to-school excitement.  I've grown particularly fond of the bright cobalt blue Pierre Hardy backpack, the washed leather Nylo style and, of course the to-die-for alligator model from The Row.  Here are those and other stylish options I've come across:


Keep in mind that, just like handbags, you should choose a style proportionate to your body size and shape.  And please, no grown woman should turn up at work sporting a Hello Kitty backpack (or any other cartoon theme)... keep it age appropritate!

 Because I love everything about it!

This gorgeous Christian Dior bustier is exquisitely fashioned from golden yellow floral silk jacquard fabric with a smocked tulle overlay.  U.S. size 6 (as labeled) but seems to run smaller.  (Straps are removable).  See listing for more information and fit detail.

Well Collared

It's no secret that style-watchers are focusing in on collars.  It's a trend that's relatively easy to pull off. There are tons of options out there: the removable collar, the collar necklace and (please, don't laugh) the dickey.  For those of you who do not know, the dickey is basically a collar that is attached to a "bib" and gives the illusion you are wearing a shirt.  Dickies can change the look of a sweater or shell without any bulk or pesky bunching and twisting.  They are especially handy to a Texan (like myself) who appreciates the layered look, but rarely sees the opportunity, what with the heat soaring well through fall!

Here are a few Style Therapy favorites:

Stylishly Superstitious: The Evil Eye

Stylish or superstitious?  Maybe a little of both?  Historically, these talismans were worn to ward off the evil eye curse...basically turning or bending a malicious gaze back to its bestower.  I wear my Jennifer Miller evil eye bracelet every day (#6) and even though I don't consider myself all that superstitious, a little added protection never hurt anyone!  Accessory and jewelry designers are putting their own spin on the evil eye, here are some of Style Therapy's favorites:

Skater Glam

The L.B.D.- Alexander McQueen style.  This skater-inspired dress features slashed, open shoulders that lend a little bit of attitude and offset the flirty twirl skirt.  Black on nude lace is simply gorgeous and hard-to-find!  Cocktail party perfection with towering platforms or (for an edgier spin) peep-toe booties.  Don't miss out on this rare find!

Whether you're headed to a beach-side cocktail party or a black tie soiree, this Halston Heritage gown is your go-to dress!  Rich purple flatters nearly anyone and the seventies-inspired design is beyond sexy.  Fabulously versatile, pair this dress with metallic gold flat or strappy high-heeled sandals.  An armful of bangles and dangling chandelier earrings complete the look.

I know I've talked about this one before, but I can't help myself... I love it!
