I have an obsession with sunsets. It hasn’t always been this way. It seems to me as if one day I realized that sunsets exist- and I have been in total awe and wonderment ever since. I have developed this sixth sense about them- knowing that sometimes they will be mild and blur with some … More Bleach Dye DIY Stone and Sunsets Dress
Sometimes you just layer until it feels right. The thing I love the most about this outfit is it’s evolution. It started simple enough with a creamy modern simple dress- it was chilly so I threw on an off white maxi vest- it was colder still so I grabbed the newest addition to my … More Style Files: Modern Day Calamity Jane
Today I trespassed. If you know me- it’s a common trait. There was a pocket of Tennessee wilderness that I drive by everyday- and since I was really feeling my thrifted fall outfit and I just happened to have my little tripod in my car- I thought I would finally take the plunge and wander … More Goodbye November (and thrifted fall style perfection)

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of shooting some delightful promotional images for a bookstore that I can share with you come October. This meant I got to take a little road trip to Birmingham where I discovered a weeks worth of Art Magic in about 30 minutes. Those of you who follow me on … More Birmingham Love Affair
If you haven’t yet seen my shopping tips segment on Talk of The Town – this adorable $8 little Express jumper was the my favorite Goodwill find for this segment.

This past weekend at the Nashville Flea Market I spent $12 and walked away with treasure galore!! My first find was a Vintage Singer Sewing machine for $5 ( I was told later by an appraiser that just one specific piece of it was worth $150) Then I really scored at the Gimme a 5 booth where they … More From Eighties to Adorable: $1 Dress Revamp Tutorial from 365 Days of Thrift
I don’t care where you live- this summer has been incredibly hot. Here in the south it has been icky sticky humid as well. The other day, as I raced around my house and my home studio working on projects and orders for Monarch Couture, I found myself wishing I had some sort of work smock.
