Back-To-School MOM


Lets face it, it's not just the kids that are headed back to the school yard - us moms are headed back to the battle field to, reporting for duty, large and in charge! The early morning rigmarole can be utterly brutal - corralling the troops whilst dodging traffic and kid bullets is downright cruel. That said, I've compiled the above smattering with us Back-To-School MOMs in mind - all the key elements have been covered to get us out of nearly any bind! There's the Fierce Mom Goggles to hide our over-tired eyes - while the secret flask bangle equips us with a calming liquid surprise! Of course there's the Unruly Coiffe Tamers + Mandatory Face Paint - both offer returns far greater than their actual weight. Finally + perhaps most importantly are the exit strategy shoes + Leopard Tote with Mom Whistle - both pinch hitters come end of day dismissal. So, before you send your team back to their respective desks - be sure to equip yourself prior to hitting the decks!

Mrs. Working Girl



Here's to Mrs. Working Girl, no doubt you know her well - she works hard for her money and boy can you tell! Her desk is always a bit disheveled - her head a little unleveled - but her work kicks ass, leaving many awe-struck + bedeviled. She rarely adheres to systems + silly rules - she sometimes partakes in a little mid-day booze - but that's what keeps her WERKIN, so the heck with those who don't approves!! In a flash she turns it on and then turns it out - she's a wrecking ball of brilliance, an asset no doubt! So, if you happen to pass her in the hallway, slap her a HIGH-five - indeed she'll slap you back, and even deliver a little of her jive!

Take Me Away: Attire Guide


In the moments where all life's stressors flee my wild mind, i'm left daydreaming of lavish vacations, hammocks + the world's best wine. My visions have me donning the fabbiest of attire - fabulous from head to toe, a true fashion classifier! Walking the streets of Spain in a flare sleeve + midi or lounging in the French Riviera in my B+W ruffle bikini...

Red Twist Scarf / Striped Cheeky Bottoms

SF in the warmer months doesn't always mean shorts + tanks or bright summery dresses. I find a really great pair of wide-legged pants to bring the greatest successes. Pair them with a fun, casual tee and you'll be turning heads like 1, 2, 3. While you're at it throw in a colorful shoulder bag - it'll save you from looking like a colorless hag. 

How about you? What are YOUR fave looks for San Fran this time of the season?

Mrs. Chain Gang



What ever the lock it's assigned to, every key deserves a fabulous chain - the power that this accessory possesses  is really quite insane. A MRS keychain reflects that of her true inner spirit - thus said chain is paramount, you must endear it! I say this to you now because I have recently experienced a keychain loss - the depth of my despair over such an item I didn't think was even poss! I've collected the above smattering and all are in the running - which ever one I decide upon, there's no doubt it'll be stunning. I urge you to take a gander at your own key holder - consider it's authority, could it be HIGHER? Should it be BOLDER? I'm sure you'll know right away upon first inspecting glance - and you'll know precisely how to proceed, what ever the circumstance.

You're Welcome.

Arm Party



Welcome to the Arm Party - a BOLD and blingy affair that's hip + hardy! Whether you're a subscriber to the multi-stack or a mono-cuff devotee - pay attention, the arm party is your favorite cup of tea! Historically, I was never one for the dainty bangle - aesthetically I'm lured by the super-sized spangle. However, I've recently discovered the mix-n- match-dainty-bangle-stack - a mishmash of mini metals that meld to monopolize at that! Don't get me wrong, you'll find me rocking the statement cuffs nine times out of ten - but I must say I'm pleased to add this method into my repertoire every now and again. No matter the day, or the outfit and arm party can always be celebrated - furthermore, lauded, applauded + masqueraded!

Mrs. Grand Marshal



I weep for the ones who don't get to partake in the small town 4th parade - I mean, it's almost MORE American than fresh squeezed lemonade! Every year my family, along with every other person in Sahn Diago - line the main drag and patriotically cheer on this festive fiasco. Nary a year passes that we don't see the same thang - but believe it or not it always ends with a celebrated bang! One day, perhaps when I'm at my cutest, old and gray - I hope to be the MRS Grand Marshal of this 4th of July Parade! If granted this wish, I'll solemnly swear to don my patriotic best - and lead the line of festive carnies as they lead their troupes Americana zest!

The Polish/Sandal Showdown


There ain't a showdown like a tootsy showdown. It's all about the pairing of polishes and sandals - getting prepped and primed to avoid a case of the much feared Spring Shambles! A loud color paired with fabby strappy footwear will be positively sure to grasp a good, jealous stare. Don't be afraid to go bold with it - because bold is brilliant and you can totes ROCK IT!

I dare you!!!




Making The Mundane Magnificent



Why not celebrate the daily mundane - make magnificent of what is usually rather lame - by glorifying the conventional with little to no restrain. Might as well paint the garden red - turn weekly duties into a fanciful affair instead - put those gowns to use and knock 'em dead! A Mrs. never needs a reason for dressing to the nines - chores and things are so much better when you make them divine! You'll be absolutely amazed and decidedly delighted - that all things boring can so easily be blighted - when you give into the extravagant pleasure of being capriciously excited!

Make Mine A Midi



Nary a MRS has been scolded for cutting too ladylike a silhouette - and therefore an investment in a bevy of midi skirts wouldn't bring a sliver of regret. As grand as a maxi, yet more elegant than a mini - in walks the midi and kills it willy nilly! Paired with a suave chambray shirt that's been popped, cuffed + tucked - you've got yourself an ensemble that's tough to trump! If you haven't midi'd yet, well you should - this ladylike silhouette is fab and fab, my ladies, is GOOD!

Saved by the BELL



 When it feels as though fashion has lost its flair, you look to your closet with utter despair - shaking your fists in the air whilst screaming "I'VE GOT NOTHING TO WEAR!!!" Fret not, there BELL will save you, it's painfully fashionable and debonair! A bold dressing statement I so do declare - yet one that when executed properly will have you lookin' n' feelin' like a hot billionaire!  Take it from me, I'm a true BELL extraordinaire - I rock this look ferociously and confidently sans a care! So the next time your feeling fashionably blue and needing repair - run, don't walk, to the chicest bell and don them if you dare!!

Kid's Spring Attire


Now that we're getting near that time to kick winter out the door - it's time to welcome Spring attire into the littles' drawer! Although a sunny dweller myself, I cannot deny the grand + dear spot in my heart for my east coast peeps...that said, I wanted to include options in heaps!! For cold weather and warm, come sunshine or storm - there's one thing to make sure of: dress the mini-you's to the nines + follow the cues of my MRS fashion signs!

Lady in RED



This lady all doused in red - is gonna set the day on fire, gonna knock em dead! She's a firey gal who's always looking for love - when it comes to flirty enthusiasm she's a cut above!! She'll give you all she's got and leave you wanting more - she's a real charmer, right down to the core! If you happen to spot her, be sure to blow her a kiss - she's one hot gal you won't wanna miss!!

Statement Sweaters & Tees


There's nothing more cheeky than a sassy statement sweater, or perhaps a statement tee in this sunny SD weather. I'm all about the clever tees and sweaters all the's the on-cotton humor that drives me hysterically insane. So as I let out a ferocious giggle + share a few finds with you, I hope to spread some harmless humor onto you, too!!!




Toasty Tootsies (Warm Shoe Options)


During these brrr-y times when warmth is far more than a want but a need, the #1 option is to toast your tootsies in one of these (yes, please)! Guaranteed warmth, guaranteed chic...can you EVER go wrong with choices so sleek?! I must admit they've even got me quite weak in the knees!

Furry, metallic, leopard, or leather...take your pick but keep an eye on the weather. Over here in sunny SD, I rock metallic slip ons but perhaps they aren't entirely for thee!

So take a gander at my guilt-worthy gathering & decide on a pair that suits you. Then proceed to toast your hardworking tootsies in your fave pair (or two!)
