I wanted to change up my style a little bit and go for the preppy look. Right now my style is somewhere between prep and hipster, mostly I just shop at places like Forever 21 and the Gap. But lately...

TJMaxx & Marshalls Fall Preview
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit the TJ Maxx and Marshalls fall preview.

Katherine Kwei and Charmco NYC AW11 Preview
Last Wednesday, I got the chance to preview Katherine Kwei’s upcoming handbag line and Charmco’s 14K gold charm collection at the Thompson Hotel LES.
