Looks for Less

I’ve finally got around to perusing the massive September issues that have been choking up my mailbox and my hands down favorite has been Elle this year. Great styling, and surprisingly, great writing – but, as much as I love it, the usual round of wardrobe budget envy ensues! So, I picked a few of … Continue reading

Captoe Boots

It seems like autumn is in a hurry to come back to Chicago. The weather has been temperamental and I think my arms have gotten stronger from repeatedly taking my jacket on and off. So what’s a girl to do? Oh, I know, let’s style the perfect fall look! I’m really loving these captoe booties … Continue reading

Back to the Basics

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. Not because my schedule is crazy busy or that I have a huge deadline looming in the future. I get the feeling every morning as I stare at my beyond stuffed closet while a nagging voice in the back of my head telling me that I have nothing to wear. … Continue reading

Lollapalooza 2013!

I’ve lived in Chicago for 4 summers now but have yet to make it to Lollapalooza …so this year, I’m going all out and will be attending all three days – get ready for outfit shots and a ridiculous amount of stage shots! *Images via Riches for Rags.

Hot Pink & Studs

I seem to be on a kick of sticking to trends that people are wayyy over. So in that spirit, let me reintroduce the sock bun. It’s hot and muggy in Chicago and there’s no better way to tackle my frazzled locks. The sophisticated hairstyle inspired me to dress up my casual pink dress by … 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

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
