Have you heard of Trunk Club? It’s a high-end styling service that sends a trunk of clothing and accessories directly to your home. You even get a preview online! You have 10 days to try everything on, and then keep what you like and send the rest back. Previously the service was only available for men (the hubs tried it and was pleased by the range of items and prices), but now it’s available for women too!

I’m off the waiting list and eagerly awaiting my first box! Recently acquired by Nordstrom, I know they’ll have the best in product. I’ll give you all the details, winners, losers & all, once it arrives. Yay!

Want to try it? Check out my invite here.

It’s here! It’s here! Weather is cooling, leaves are turning, and it’s time for fall fashion! I love the high, the low, and all the accessibly in-between. And this year, I’m really feeling olive. And all it’s lovely, lovely complimentary shades.

I’ve been seriously crushing on this hoop art lately! And Etsy has quite the plethora. Super sweet as a stand alone, fun as a little collection, or a great idea for a housewarming gift!

Knitting was my first crafting attempt a while back, but I could never quite pick it up, but this might have the combination of art & math for my left brain to try. In the mean time, I’ll be supporting lovely artists like these! xoxo.

During her acceptance speech at BLACK GIRLS ROCK! 2012 Monáe spoke candidly about her family and said she wears her uniform in honor of them.

“When I started my musical career I was a maid, I used to clean houses. My parents–my mother was a proud janitor, my step-father who raised me like his very own worked at the post office and my father was a trash man. They all wore uniforms. And that’s why I stand here today in my black and white and I wear my uniform to honor them,” Monáe said, fighting back tears. “This is a reminder that I have work to do, I have people to uplift, I have people to inspire,” she said after explaining that she grew up in Wyandotte County, “the poorest county” in Kansas City.

“And today I wear my uniform proudly as a Covergirl,” she told the audience reffering to her deal with the cosmetics giant… I want to be clear young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Covergirl, I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned through my journey that perfection is the often the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes other uncomfortable.” ‘
