Tonight You’re Electrical

unchained like an animal
you’re glitter and gold

You know how there’s rules to life? There’s a big one; something like “don’t start a new job, buy a house, get married, have a kid, or any combination of those in the same year”. This little lady, who’s moved and swapped jobs more times than she’d liked to admit is knocking off two within a month. NO I’m not pregnant or getting married. If you follow me on InstaGram you may have seen that Z and I have been house hunting. It started with “just looking” but we soon realized the competitive and booming real estate market that is DC. So after finding a charming 3 bedroom fixer upper, we’ve made an offer; the same day I started a new full time job.
To call me overwhelmed would be an understatement. I’m a slew of emotions ranging from nervous, scared, happy, excited, tired, stressed, creative…with 3 bedrooms we’ll have a lot of space to decorate and have already started planning, designing, pinning, and I’ve even decided there will be more decor posts here on the blog (hope that’s okay that I drag you all along on this home journey)!
As for this outfit; this is one of my go-to summer dresses. Bold color, a shape that requires no bra, and fun to play both up and down. With this new job and the home stuff, outfit posts may get a little slower but I promise the premise of this blog will not change! You will still get your recommended dose of versatile style inspiration, of that I assure you!

Lights, Camera, Strike a Pose

Vaster your dreams and your hopes into it
Everything you used to know is gone
And you’re slipping into in your own
_MG_8441Hello All! Sorry that this is, like, a week late, but here’s what I wore on New Year’s! This dress has an interesting story; I found it at a lovely little boutique while in Saratoga Springs, NY called Piper. But at $94 it was out of my budget fashionista’s price range. I was disheartened, but flash forward three months as I’m on my mother’s couch scoping out a local boutique’s post-Christmas 50% off sale and what do I find? The Jack by BB Dakota beauty for a mere $40. I grabbed my layers and bolted to Calico in New Bedford and snagged that beauty up! It clearly was fate, as I eventually found the dreamy dress, which fits like a glove at a price even I can afford!
So I wore my new dress for the New Year’s celebration, paired with mixed metals and sky high wedges. I hung out with as many of my closest friends as possible, so I was in great company as I kicked butt at Cards Against Humanity before kissing my beau, and BFF, at midnight!

I’m excited for 2014; 2013 was an exceptional time for me and I couldn’t be more excited (and slightly scared) for the upcoming year.
How was your new years!? What are your resolutions!?

New In: Monogram Necklace + A Giveaway!!!

20130821-083814.jpg
I love that these initial monogram necklaces are so big right now! A throwback to the 90’s and the ever-so-iconic “Carrie” necklace of the Sex And The City days. I’ve been seeing everyone from Lucy Hale to Lacey of ALaceyPerspective, and everyone everywhere. Pretty much.

Thank you to ONecklace for sending me this beautiful custom piece! Their team and I worked together to choose the perfect metal, cut, and style for me. I chose my initials, spelling out Sahra Katharine Schukraft, in a silver which will compliment my skin even at it’s palest. They ship from Jerusalem, which was said to take about 2 weeks but actually took less than one to reach me! I love the magnetic and ornate box to keep my cherished necklace safe and sound in when it’s not adorning my clavicle.

Now, it’s your turn to cash in on this trend! ONecklace is GIVING AWAY one FREE custom necklace to one lucky follower! And for those of you don’t win, score 10% off with code “GIFT” at check out! The giveaway is open worldwide, and you get to pick your choice of silver or gold, and which 3 initials you’d like!
