shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.

I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Casual Chic

Casual Chic style is all about comfort and ease of wear, but at t it's core are two things rebellious and hard working.

Although there are always exceptions to the rule, casualness is a strong vein that runs through almost everything we do.

We can take a tuxedo jacket, pair it up with jeans, a  t-shirt and fryer boots and call it good.

So it's no surprise that we love casual comfortable clothing. 

When you consider our history and the people that make up this county it makes sense.
Americans had to be hard working and adventurous to survive here. To this day, Americans clock more work hours then almost anyone.

The casual chic look is essentially a minimalist with a twist . It is utilitarian, timeless,traditional and above all comfortable.

So how to get this look? Well...Think of simple sillouettes, soft flowing fabrics, and crisp clean lines. Pair a pare of grey flannel slacks with  a soft simple sweater.  Jeans without lots of embellishment a crisp white shirt and a classic styled pea-coat for an everyday uniform. and more jeans, slacks and more slacks, white shirts, tailored jackets, t-shirts, pencil skirts, comfortable dresses for work and play. Easy on the  froo froo and heavy on simple lines

Casual Chic Accessories

The casual chic is similar to the Minimalist. Accessories are important in expressing yourself. A little more in your face style a little more who cares attitude seems to prevail here.

As always choose accessories that you love but to stay with the motif, look for a few fine art pieces of jewelry, some vintage hats, scarves and belts.
