All Feathered Up!

We all know that fashion is an ever evolving beast, but does it evolve and revolve on a 360 degree axis?  The reason I say this is because we never see the true end of a trend.  Fashions of yesteryear, long gone and forgotten, always reemerge years later. 

The latest fashion comeback emerged last year and although waning is still lingering around - FEATHERS.  I’ve seen them adorn everything from clothes to bags to jewelry.  I’ve picked up a few feathered pieces along the way and below are two of my recent favorites that I’ll be rocking into summer. 

I picked up this colorful feather and spiked necklace for $16.00 from PnkElephant.  I’ve only worn it once because I bought it in the winter but it will be one of my staple pieces this summer.  I figure it will go well with tops that have a low neckline.  

Unfortunately, this piece is sold out but check out PnkElephant for other great accessories.

I was looking for a pair of cheap black ballet flats at Target to tide me over until I made my splash in the Tory Burch pond when I came across these:

These faux suede thong sandal has a once inch heel (a/k/a flat) and has beaded and feathered detailing.  I haven’t been able to wear them yet because the weather has not quite broken for me to wear open toe shoes, but considering the faux leather cushioned sole, I can’t imagine any discomfort from these sandals.  

This Shoe Kill was made at Target for the small price of $19.99.  Find them at your nearest Target store or online at

Although, I'm not sure how much longer the feather trend will be around, but with these two pieces, I plan to have fun with it while it last.

Sheckys’ Girls Night Out

So a few nights ago, I attended the Sheckys’ Girls Night Out (SGNO) event that was held in Washington, D.C.  For those of you not familiar with SGNO, it’s a shopping event held in various cities across the U.S., typically coinciding with the Fall and Spring shopping seasons.   The event is held at a large venue, where independent vendors come out to sell their products which can range from clothes, jewelry, accessories, and handbags, or to promote services targeted at the female consumer such  as health and beauty.

The SGNO was held on March 13th and 14th at Constitution Hall in Washington D.C.  Despite not buying anything (surprise, surprise) I actually had a good time browsing, people watching, and sipping the SGNO signature drink....which was complimentary!

Admission runs between $15-$30, depending if you’re able to get a deal on Groupon and comes with an awesome goodie bag.

The next SGNO will be held in New York City June 7-9th   at SIR Stage 37.  If you’re in the area, grab your girls and stop by!
