Thank you, IFB for picking one of my posts this week! Come check out new items added on my Etsy! Donations going to Philippine typhoon victims from each sale from my Etsy shop will end tomorrow. Do something to help those in need and keep something for yourself as well!

I am currently working on my AFAA and Les Mills certifications this week, so I will be gone for a bit trying to harness my concentration powers! Any other fitness professionals out there active in the fashion community?

Happy New Year!!!

Welcome to 2014. Don’t you love the start of a New Year? Imagining all that will happen over the next 12 months. Sure, you can think about the next 12 months any time, but something is special once the calendars reset to a new year. So… what’s in store for you? Who knows! But one thing we can do is show you some links to help you make the best, with DIY projects, fashion tips, and a few bits of inspiration just for you!

New Year Chic

The New Year always makes us think about the way we spend our time. Did we make the most of the year? What were the best memories? Who dressed the best? What needs to change? This week’s roundup is a good mix of reflecting on the best of fashion in 2013 and what to look our for next year. So take a look and make the most of 2013!

Wearing the Pants in the Family

Do you know what? Every time you think you got the pants down, something new comes up! Transparent pants, sequin pants for any occasion, no-pants… heck even changing your sweaters into pants. It’s crazy what we’ll do to cover our legs! Anyway, while the whole roundup isn’t necessarily about PANTS, they certainly come up every now and then. What I like about the idea of “pants” is the idea of taking control of your wardrobe. Maybe everyone in your family wears pants, but in your life who or what is wearing the metaphorical pants? And what can you do to reinvent them? Let’s find out in this week’s Links a La Mode!

“But if fashion were easy, wouldn’t everybody look great?” ~Tim Gunn

I usually open with a title for Links à la Mode.. but this week, it’s a quote found in one of our links. Tim Gunn did say it best, if fashion were EASY, everyone would look great! But alas it’s not. It’s tricky, specific, fickle, and highly personal. We all spend our entire lives getting dressed, but how many truly have style? This week we have a mix of the things you need to find your own personal way to fashion. So grab your cuppa and read these links!

I’m highly honored to be once again part of this week’s Independent Fashion Blogger’s Links à la Mode! I love the selection of images from this feature’s header. Although they picked an image from my post from the new Great Gatsby movie, I have not seen it. There’s a good bit of discussion from my post below, and I’d really like it if some of you contributed! Opposing thoughts are welcome.

The Wide, Wild World of Fashion

I love to think about fashion, beauty, and style outside of what we wear on a daily basis. What’s the history of a perfume or designer? How did they evolve into what they are today? How does that impact the fashion cycle around us?

This week’s LALM is about the wide and wild world of fashion around us– from designers to brief nuggets of history. To iconic movements and figures (the flapper!) to reinventing and revitalizing old trends (crimping hair!). And of course– looks into icons and industry people. It’s all a wonderful reminder that there isn’t always anything new in fashion, but there are always new ways to explore it, challenge it, and investigate it.

The Nostalgia of Summer

It’s been a long time since I’ve edited LaLM, but it’s how I began my time as an IFB contributor. It seems appropriate to return during the summer because it’s always been the season for nostalgia. It doesn’t help that I turn 30 this summer, something I look forward to with a great, child-like enthusiasm. It also makes me think about the last 10 years of my life, where I’ve gone, and how far I’ve come.

Somewhere in the heart of these posts is a sense of nostalgia they bring out in me. Whether it’s the childlike enthusiasm over nails that resemble a sprinkled ice cream cone and reminiscing about my first time watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s or thinking about high-school physics with fashion, how I got out of credit card debt, or the changing tide of the blogosphere, I hope these posts stir a bit of nostalgia in you, too. (Or at least inspire you to start rewatching The Nanny on Netflix.)

Or, as The In Club asks, maybe we’re just too damned nostalgic.
