Faux Fur Frenzy

Growing up in the Midwest I've gotten accustomed to the harsh winters. So I am always looking for ways to beat the cold. This season, I've been in a frenzy over FAUX FUR!!! I love (faux) fur because it's warm, it's luxe, and you can throw it over anything to make it look glamtabulous (glamorous + fabulous) with minimal effort.

I've rocked my faux fur pieces over a denim jacket for more of an edgy look and over a long sleeve maxi to channel old Hollywood glam. I've also paired my faux fur with an oversized tee and leggings for a rocker-chic look. If you are a fashionista on a budget be sure to check out stores like Forever 21, H&M, or even Kohl's before the end of the winter sales cease. There's nothing more exciting than getting a great style find for cheap! You still have a little more time to incorporate a faux fur piece in your wardrobe before Spring takes over.

CHALLENGE: If you purchase any type of "faux" fur before the end of winter or you already have fab fur in your closet submit a pic of you wearing your special piece to & I will feature your outfit on my blog! So step into your "wild" side!

Trapped in the closet

Have you ever stood in your closet for countless minutes or hours (in some cases) trying to decide what you would wear for the day? For a date? For an interview? For a night on the town with your girls? An outfit that would capture your uniqueness, your creativity, your mood, while effortlessy speaking through your glamorous threads? If you are anything like me, and are always on the go, you don't have time to frolic through your closet all day piecing together the perfect outfit. But fret no more, there's an app for that!!! No seriously, there is an iPhone/iPad/iPod app called Touch Closet. It's one of the better closet apps that I have discovered (it's not as cool as Cher's 90's computerized closet in Clueless, but it is a close second). This app allows you to chose your outfits, enter new purchases from your fav vintage store, or boutique by style, color, and designer! This app even lets you track how often you've worn an outfit, so you can more effectively explore the depth of your closet! So to all my fashionistas check it out, tell me what you think! Happy closet organization :)

Guess Who's Bizack!!!!

So, I know it's been soooo long since I've last blogged! So many things have happended since my last post. I believe I left off with a new fiance' and a little extra bling on my 4th finger left hand. With that added bonus came a new job, in a new state, new friends, new experiences and a new year with new possibilities (we can't forget my wedding which is vastly approaching)! One of my New Year's resolutions and birthday promises to myself (I just turned 26 this month) was to spend more time blogging. I vowed that I would let my inspiration from the world around me, my love for bold pieces, and my unique perspective motivate me in my spare time to share with the world my views on my first love, FASHION!!! So here I sit, at my computer with tons of new ideas, and new potential post swimming in my head! I'm back, and I'm back with a vengance. Strap on your seatbeats, because this ride will be one of excitement, passion, creativity, and most importantly dedication!

-Love ya,

New Year, New Me!!
