Nice Girl, Own Rules.

I would describe myself as a nice girl, however I've always made my own rules and it hasn’t been easy. When a woman knows what she wants, she's labeled a diva, difficult, and of course a bitch. Even from the people closest to us, having opinions on how we should or shouldn’t conduct our lives because of our biology. When did it become unacceptable for a woman to identify what she wants and go after it with such an intensity that only she knows might possibly work in her favor? When did women become afraid of going after such desires when we’ve fought so hard to prove ourselves time and again of our equality? I thought we've come so far from...

DIY: Alexander Wang studded boots

Happy New Year!!!!!! My 2017 goal was to be more active on youtube and I am so proud of myself for the few videos I was able to produce! With that said, I ended 2017 in style honey with my DIY ALEXANDER WANG studded boot tutorial! I will say, I recommend using a super heavy duty adhesive for this project. We can't have our studs going missing while attempting to strut! Check it out below as well as where to shop similar pieces.

DIY: Pearl Slides

Someone somewhere said, "the happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have." Us girls with larger shoe sizes definitely don't have the greatest selection of footwear. We also know the struggle of making do with what we have and what's available to us. I'm not quite sure if that quote applies to us entirely, but it did make me extremely happy to create these DIY pearl slip ons! Inspired by a similar sandal by Zara, slides are the easiest to DIY. You can find these super cute and comfy black criss cross slides at torrid, up to size 14, and the adhesive pearls at Joannes fabric store. Even though the pearls...

Fiercely in Pink

One of my favorite things to do is create the most random/fun looks I can, with a mix of todays current trends. We all need a shoe that can take us from one fun look to the next, and skinny strap heel sandals are the key to unlocking several different looks. Current trend on the rise is the short heel, which is perfect for a lot of tall women that don't prefer too much extra height. The "Tawny" by Smash Shoes gives both that fun and trendy look I live for. Available in multiple color options, these are my current short heel obsessions. Photos Stefanie M.
