Women’s Mini Tank Dress – ‘Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History’

BRAND: Tank Dress Manufactured by Bella, Front Design by Wear Art Thou

STYLE: Women’s Mini Tank Dress – ‘Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History’

COLOR: White with Black Print

Material: 100% Cotton

SIZE: Small

REVIEW: If I catch you wearing this tank dress I suspect you are NOT shy OR well behaved! This is a fun way to express us as businesswomen while maintaining that fashionable flare, because not all business has to be serious, right?

I chose to wear the tank as a top/tunic as opposed to a mini dress. I am more of a ‘pants’ girl and the tank length scrunches up nicely. You see it worn here with AG Jeans Daisy Duke Shorts and an Elizabeth and James Boyfriend Blazer. The blazer adds a more serious touch to an otherwise overly casual outfit. This would look great with a pair of booties and opaque leggings!

Oh, and if you need another reason to purchase, just know that the cotton material is super soft!

Dark Grey with Black Print

BRAND: Racer Back Tank Manufactured by Alternative Earth, Front Design by Free Bird Cloth – ‘I <3 My Frenchie’

COLOR: Dark Grey with Black Print

Material: 50% Polyester / 38% Cotton / 12% Rayonne

SIZE: Small

REVIEW: This racer back tank quickly became my new favorite top when I received it in the mail! I absolutely LOVE doggies and even though I do not own a ‘frenchie’ I do own another breed and like to imagine that all pooches are created equal – so I wear this top in celebration of man’s best friend!

In addition to the design being so darn cute, the style of the tank is very easy to wear and can be paired with a lot of different items – from blue jeans to a high-waisted mini skirt to a fitted blazer. Just use your imagination!

The tank has somewhat of a grey space-dye feel to it and as I wear it the edges tend to curl for a unique look. It’s just really amazing all the way around – I will continue to rave about it as I wear it every week!

As seen in the photos, I am wearing a fitted black blazer by Theory and a pair of dark wash denim jeans by James Jeans.



Women’s Infinity Loop Skull Print Scarf

BRAND: G&B (Gertie & Baxter)

STYLE: Women’s Infinity Loop Skull Print Scarf

COLOR: Black & White

Material: Gauze (very soft and flexible)

SIZE: 34” x 37”

PACKAGING: The scarf came wrapped inside earth-tone tissue paper with a white string tie and ‘G&B’ label. This made me even more excited to reveal what was inside!

REVIEW: What a brilliant scarf! This large infinity loop is printed with white skulls throughout and a white border at the edges. It may sound a bit ‘spooky’ now that we are approaching Halloween, but the skulls are so fun and sexy to wear. I have worn this loop more times than I can count and received even more compliments, which has led to this stunner being placed front and center in my closet!

This skull printed scarf jazzes up even the dullest of tees and is perfect under your recently dusted and reinstated fall leather jacket. I recommend purchasing it in ALL of the available colors (black, white and pink), because there will always be a need for this conversation starter!

Wear it loose, looped once or twice or try knotting it into a one-of-a-kind style!

Women’s Onyx Glitter Studs

BRAND: Starlight Woods

STYLE: Women’s Onyx Glitter Studs

COLOR: Black

REVIEW: I absolutely love these little studs by Starlight Woods! Not only are the earrings stylish and classy, they are eco-friendly! All wood used in the backing of the studs are taken from damaged trees, so you can wear a little bit of nature ear to ear!

I like to keep things simple most of the time and these earrings allow me to do that without being blasé. The painted half globe of black dots and glitter showcase a more glamorous side as the thick wooden backing brings a touch of countryside! It’s a beautiful combination.

I very much recommend that you try this stud in all of the colors! You will not be disappointed.

  1. I can’t even pick a favorite here – everything looks so awesome and I absolutely love your presentation

  2. I want the Chunky Knit Slouchy Beanie in charcoal. I usually wear a beret but they don’t cover my ears. This beanie will keep my ears warm and be an attractive accessory at the same time.

  3. Love the boot cuffs in any color (but would choose red). They are cute and stylish and matches my hat (the style and fabric)
