Spring is in the air

I have recently been into vintages, or thrifted items in a more mundane term. For the longest time, I was freaked out at the thought of buying something that used to belong to someone else. As funny as it sounds, I do have a mild case of OCD and I just didn’t quite understand the…

Thanks to the internet, it wasn’t the end of the world for them, as eBay opened another door of opportunity,…

Get Your Swagger On

Accessories can really transform a look.  While there are plenty options, I especially enjoy shopping for sunglasses,  bracelets, and gloves for their practicality and styling potentials. When I was a broke college student living in a tiny apartment where rent was bigger than my paycheck, I would starve myself just so I could get the…
