Guilty Pleasure…Anyone?

Like most of you, I have a guilty pleasure. But unlike most of you I cherish my guilty pleasure. I am always looking for a little free time to indulge myself. My guilty pleasure is magazines…yes magazines. I love them! And I don’t discriminate; I love all kinds of them – design, style, gossip, and music…really any magazine will do. But my favorites are Elle D├ęcor and In Style. I love getting new ideas from other creative people. I fold corners down and tear out pages for my design file. It is such a creative time for me that I can’t help but love every minute. My advice to everyone is to find a guilty pleasure and indulge! Don’t apologize for it, just feed the hunger!

The Romper

I love how fashion basically goes in cycles. Styles that were popular back in the 70s are modified a little bit, given a new name and called “innovative.” I remember when I was in middle school I bought a pair of flare jeans and my mom said she had bellbottoms just like them in high school. I would always say “mom, they’re not bellbottoms they are flares.” Well the new jumpsuit is now called a romper and I love them! I think they are so much fun! I love when you can throw something on, run out the door and look fabulous. Check out all these fun rompers at shopbop.com and try something “new” with your style this summer.
