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

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 🙂
