When Life Throws You Lemons

…You make lemonade. Well the lemonade I got to make was behind a camera lens thanks to a photographer friend I’ve known since high school. I dyed my hair a new color and I also wanted to check out the Renwick Gallery and so here we were making magic in the museum. Lovely exhibit by the way. Afterwards we decided to change the look and use a white background. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the shoot.     Continue reading

Hidden Gem in Old Town

20140703_181321

It was one of those days that I wasn’t in a rush to go anywhere after I got off of work.  There was a new store that was three doors down from my job that goes by the name of Maggie Jane’s Brownstone that I was meaning to check out. I finally had the time to take it all in. It is nine rooms of vintage furniture, jewelry, signs, lamps, and more. It’s a vintage French urban chic boutique.

I felt like I was walking back in time. I love everything vintage and one of a kind. I walked in all nine rooms to see what they had to offer and I got more and more excited with every room I went into. The prices aren’t outrageous either.

I was mesmerized by the earrings which ran about $25. The earrings were super unique and I just had to have them. 

I also got to chat with the owner that is very nice and very creative. She set up the entire shop and it is really appealing to the eye. The front window alone kept catching my eye every time I walked pass and I knew I needed to eventually stop in. You will not be disappointed.

3 Ways to Wear A Maxi

3 Ways to Wear A Maxi
Many of us have that one maxi dress that we think can only be worn one way but can be worn multiple ways. I took various pieces but used the same dress as my staple piece. All you have to do is mix pieces up such as shoes and accessories and the outfit becomes elevated to toned down.
