Etsy Find: letterhappy

I came across letterhappy during my usual weekend perusing of Etsy. Besides the beautiful and fun items actually in the shop, I loved that Christen was having a “Christmas in July” sale – how cute is that?! The shop offers a wide variety of items ranging from prints to cards to jewelry. I picked out … Continue reading

One of the items that caught my eye was this bright pair of ikat sandals! Man, when I like something I … Continue reading

Who Doesn’t Love a Sale?

Aaaaahhh, summer sale season. The last chance to pick up styles that can actually be worn within the next few months (corduroys being sold in August?!) and my favorite part – snagging them at ridiculously low prices! Beyond the land of summer dresses and sandals, this year I stalked the mecca of summer home sales … Continue reading

Ikat with a Twist

This weekend I searched high and low for the perfect outfit for a friend’s DJ gig at a downtown hotspot. I was looking for the perfect combination of dressy and unique so my look wouldn’t melt into the sea of tight dresses and platform heels that usually dominate the scene. I fell in love with … Continue reading

Building Blocks

I’ve been in a fashion rut lately – there’s only so much neon a girl can look at when she enters a store! When I came across this blouse – or piece of art? – it was the perfect breath of fresh air I was looking for. I have so many ideas about how to … Continue reading

Metallic Heels

Homes & Heels started out as a place for me to obsess about interior design and feature heels that live in my fantasy shoe closet. Once I (finally!) got the guts to start featuring my personal style, I forgot all about keeping my lovely readers up to date on the shoes catching my eye! So, … Continue reading

Etsy Find: PerpetualMotionDecor

It’s been a looong time since I’ve done an Etsy find post (check out past ones here, here and here), but I knew I had to share these gorgeous chandeliers! When you think about “paper lighting” most people’s minds wander back to those chinese lanterns that come in ever color and have become a staple for … Continue reading

Scoop NYC Anniversary Event

Summers in Chicago make all of those months of wind, sleet and snow bearable. The city comes back to life – daily activities such as going to happy hour with friends become even better when there’s the chance that it can turn into an entire evening of spilling secrets on a rooftop with a skyline … Continue reading

Metallic Accents

I keep going back to the pictures from my Italy trip to reminisce about the gorgeous cityscapes and landscapes. Lovely readers, did you think I would leave you out of the fun? So here’s another versatile outfit that was comfortable enough for long hours of sightseeing and for cozy Italian dinners. I paired a casual … Continue reading

Seeking Inspiration: Anthropologie

I am a HUGE fan of Anthropologie. Their gorgeous furniture and hard to miss heels don’t always fit into this gal’s budget but it’s worth shopping in the store just for visual inspiration. I stumbled across this month’s online catalog and was totally captivated by all of the images. I love how they took this … Continue reading
