don’t be afraid to bring in a trend when it comes to denim. fringe is still going strong this year and gives this denim shirt a modern look. it looks great over a wide-leg jean.

I was never good at making costumes. On Halloween my sons used to look at me and wonder why I couldn’t be like the other moms and create amazing costumes. What can I say? It isn’t one of my strengths. Sooooo, I have the Presidential Inaugural Ball coming up this weekend, and it isn’t a traditional Black Tie event.

Capes can be an inexpensive and easy-peasy way to jazz up an outfit too.
