I’ve received quite a few requests for this post, so here it is! How to avoid overpacking for a trip. I’ve done a month long trip through Europe with one carry-on suitcase, I am currently on a three month trip with that same carry-on suitcase and a backpack. Needless to say, I’ve gotten this minimalist packing approach down to a science. In this article, I’ll share what exactly to pack with you for a trip. Whether that is a week long or a month long. If you are willing, it can be done with two carry-ons. Are you ready? Let’s go!
Moms are pretty amazing. They’ve done a lot for us, and what better way to say thanks than a day to celebrate them. Mother’s day is May 13th, that’s less than a month away! Here is a round up of the best gifts to give this year, 2018.
Like with much of the fashion trends emerging this year, 70s vibes are big! Music Festivals are the perfect places to wear these chic, inspired disco trends. Think flared pants, kimonos, Birkenstock sandals, and of course printed baby doll dresses. If you have any vintage 70s pieces, pull those out for the occasion. Vintage tees, ruffles, and straw totes are still big this season as well, so don’t be afraid to weave those into your look. Keep on reading to find out how to style and where to buy the perfect festival approved outfit for 2018.
Did you know that Balmain has a sister line called Pierre Balmain? It originated in 2011 as a way for consumers to own a piece from the Balmain brand without having to pay the heavy price. The design team, the same group who oversees Just Cavalli, takes inspiration from Olivier Rousteing’s collection and create pieces that reflect the Parisian military style Balmain is known for. You’ll find a plethora of well structured, fitted blazers, skirts, and Moto jeans within the Pierre Balmain collection. If you take a look at Balmain newest arrivals, you can see the similarity in the two lines (just the price is different!). I have found the most challenging part is finding a place to shop the Pierre Balmain.
So where can you get the latest from Pierre Balmain?

It’s here! Gucci’s Spring Collection has hit most retailers for pre-order and online ordering… And it’s pretty insane. Take a look for yourself to see if you are willing to buy one of these designer pieces for Spring 2018.
The nice part of this collection is that most pieces are classically designer and will last a life time. The sequin jumpsuit is just something to completely marvel at. I seriously want to know which celeb will be spotted int it. I personally can see Jeffree Star rocking the look.
The all beloved kitten heel is trending again and I couldn’t be happier. The uber chic heel elevates an outfit instantaneously, while giving you the ability to walk around all day. I’ve personally been rocking a pair of velvet kitten heels all winter long (see below!), and glad that Spring will be filled with these shoes as well.
On the search for the perfect kitten heels for spring, I found these insanely fun pairs that I would wear. I really love bows and backless kitten heels, but don’t be afraid to play with metallics and sling backs as well. You can easily pair these with jeans, skirts, or shorts. Let me know in the comments which ones you would wear!

Last year during New York Fashion Week, we saw a ton of cropped sweatshirts and sweaters coming down the runway. Take a look at how GCDC did the trend! Spring is finally around the corner where we can rock this new look. I’ve actually have been wearing cropped sweaters most of the winter paired with high waisted jeans. They are cute, fun, and give a flattering shape to the body when styled the right way. You don’t need to go super short if you don’t want to show your midriff. You can always go with high waisted skirts and pants to gap the difference and make the entire look super chic.
