Tunic Tales.

On the rare day I have free time, I enjoy browsing local thrift stores. The day I found this tunic was a good day! I've been a long time thrifter and people are genuinely surprised when they compliment something I'm wearing and tell them I found it thrifting. Gone are the days of grandma's stiff starched Poly & her sister Ester (my terms for polyester ;-). Now, if you know where to look, you can find some gems. 
Happy Hunting!

Business Casual. Casual Business. Stylinity Vol. 11

People ask me, "How would you classify your style?" The answer to that question is, "I don't." It all depends on my mood and today I felt like adding a little 'office appropriate attire to a mix of casual. The business creatives who have office attire freedom could easily rock this. And after work? Pop the jacket off, add some heels and your off to happy hour! Click "I want it" to add it to your wardrobe! Stay tuned next week for my latest with my collab with Stylinity and The Limited!
