The Girl With The Dragon Necklace

THE CANVAS –

The Girl with the Dragon….Necklace! (And no I will NEVER be geting a tattoo, Biggest Fear = Needles)

I found this necklace while doing some shopping at a local farmer’s market in Sun Valley. It was made from a belt buckle (from the 70’s), a vintage gold chain and a vintage yellow brooch (from the 30’s). Although it was pricey, it was worth it. In one word and three syllables, it is
FAB-U-LOUS.

It’s All In The Details…

THE CANVAS –
Blouse : Forever 21 ~ Pants : H&M (burgundy) ~ Trenchcoat : Jessica Simpson ~Purse : Louis Vuitton
~ Shoes : Sam Edelman (Dusty Rose) ~ Earrings : Givenchy ~ Ring : Judith Jack ~ Bracelet : Forever 21

Its’s all in the details….especially when those details are “spiked”!

There are times when I think that accessories can make an outfit and this is one of those cases. By adding a few accessories (that are not overly priced) it can make a whole theme of an outfit come together. I did wear this outfit to work because I have a very relaxed office where most anything goes (I sometimes push the envelope), but you could always swap out the shoes to make it more work appropriate.

The Fashion Canvas!

So I am starting a blog! EEEEEK

I decided that I needed to do something for myself lately that I enjoyed. I thought about all of the things that made me happy and I kept coming back to fashion. I love mixing items, trends, fabrics, and think it is a way that truly helps me express who I am as a person.

I figure maybe I can provide some inspiration to people, or if nothing else, give me something fun to do and think about when life can feel so monotonous. When thinking about my blog, I couldn’t quite come up with a name? I wanted something that didn’t classify me in any way. And so “The Fashion Canvas” was born. In essence, with each outfit, I am creating a canvas of looks that epitomizes my style.

I am excited to start blogging and think it will be a good release in life. I am referred to as a “Marketing Barbie” in my daily job, so hopefully I can become “Blogging Barbie” as well 🙂
