Thought I'd share some of my latest work with my muse, who also happens to be my husband, and best friend. If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with men's fashion, and how obsessed I am about the love of my life. Therefore you can understand, that when these two worlds collide, something magical and altogether transcendent happens... Well you be the judge.

My As a stylist and instagrammer one question I receive the most is, where do you shop? Well I'm definitely a fast fashion consumer which means I shop predominantly at places like Forever 21, H&M and Zara. However I frequent other stores within the Amazon marketplace, small online boutiques and thrift stores for my more unique pieces. It used to be that shopping at fast fashion retailers meant you were purchasing bargain priced, moderate to low quality clothing. Boy have times changed, in fact the availability of high quality moderately priced clothing is now a stabilizing trend, in the business of fashion. Cheaper prices, no longer translates to cheap looking, low quality clothing. The new market affords the average shopper more ways to "get the look" of the high fashions, that grace the runways, but at a reasonable cost. Its revolutionizing the fashion world, evident in high fashion designers eagerness to collaborate with company's like H&M and Target. It's also giving the buyer with less buying buck the ability to indulge in styles brands and trends that they never had access to before in ways they never imagined. My entire look below illustrates this shift in retail benefits the consumer. I purchased this rather sport chic look for a little over $150. My dress was $19 from Forever 21, my shoes from an online French boutique L'oiel $79, and my jacket from Zara $69.
