  • Are you into straw purses? At first, I was not into the straw circle purse trend, but now this has become my signature accessory. I get so many question & compliments on this purse so here are my answers:
-
▪️You have to travel light because this does open on its own if you carry too much
-
▪️Withstands the rain pretty well - so I will be taking this into fall
-
▪️To add a french touch, tie a silk scarf around the handle 💕

  • QUESTION: Is Fashion Week relevant anymore? 👗🤔 Do you like seeing Fashion Week posts from bloggers?
-
The other day @jaceyduprie asked her followers a really thought provoking question about whether or not she should attend Fashion Week this year. This amazing post made me ponder my own decision on whether to go or not. A lot of bloggers are asking this question to themselves and to their readers. I'm not alone in thinking: is it even relevant anymore?

I went back to my journalism days to explore this topic in great detail and present arguments for all sides of the FW dilemma.
