With St. Patty’s Day and my birthday right around the corner, I’ve realized that I am one lucky clover!  I am close to my hundredth post already, loving what I do, and always supported by family and friends…which i am extremely grateful for!  

I just received a pair of wedges for my 22nd birthday (eek! sounds so old), and couldn’t be any more excited to wear them out.  Above are a few of my other Lucky Brand favorites, great for this spring/summer transition.  Maybe you can convince your parents or loving hubby to purchase you a pair of these beauties to celebrate the luck of the Irish this Saturday!  And of course, don’t forget to wear something green!  Have an amazing weekend everyone.

Ohhh em gee! These Sam Edelman spring collection shoes are on my current wish list.  They are making me swoon!  Wouldn’t the polka dot stilletos be perfect for an interview, and the multi-colored wedges a great shoe to wear during a summer festival?  

J.Crew’s number 1 pick for a 2012 gotta-have-it is the classic ballet flat.  After browsing through my January catalog I received in the mail, I couldn’t help but agree 100 percent.  You can never go wrong with a timeless J.Crew shoe, so purchase a pair while they last!  Don’t forget that you can use your student ID at most locations to receive a discount. 

Welcome back m’dears.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with joy and love!  Most people I know won’t dare fight the crowds the day after Christmas, but I find shopping all the more appealing with chaos surrounding me.  This week I am debating between velvet and sequins for my NYE clebration, so I pieced together a style board to get some feedback from my loyal readers.  Velvet is a fabric with many enemies, and it needs to be worn in the right way to really pull off.  Unlike most, I have recently fallen in love with the existence of velvet in the fashion world, and just this month I wore a crushed crimson piece to my sorority formal and purchased a pair of Fossil velvet shorts for the chilly December weather.  A rich blue hue looks royal paired with a velvet fabric, and I promise that if you give this trend a chance you won’t be disappointed.  Both comfortable and cozy, velvet is ideal this time of year.  I chose a few chic winter staples above to have you looking lovely and luxe for an upcoming winter affair.  So, will you give velvet a try?
