35 Times Kimmy K Absolutely Killed It…

Kim Kardashian will always be an idol. Although topics surrounding her can cause some debate, I admire her strictly for her fashion and beauty regimes. Therefore, in honor of her 35th birthday Tuesday, from a night out to effortless street wear, here are 35 times her style was absolutely flawless (granted a lot of them look similar)…

After drooling over the whopping 835 pages of Vogue’s September issue, the trends for this Fall are prominently splashed across pages covered in Saint Laurent, Valentino, Chanel and more. Compilations of notes later, I’ve put together for you the ultimate style guide to this fall straight from Vogue itself, and where you can find the best pieces at the best prices (and it’s looking pretty 70s)…

Suede & Fringe

Met Gala 2015…

The Met Gala calls for big, elegant, timeless classic gowns. This years was China themed. It’s one of my favourite red carpet events because of the beautiful classic sophisticated looks. The chances of you seeing Miley Cyrus half naked with a blunt in her hand are just extremely unlikely (this, is a good thing my friends). I’m all about tastefulness and so is this night. Here are some of my favourite looks from the carpet that you’ll definitely want to see…

There were a lot of great dresses at the Met Gala this year, but these are the ones that I thought were not only beautiful, but embraced the classic Met Gala red carpet look and class!
