From Fashion Week to SavvyChic

My footsteps echoed against the cobblestone streets of London’s Covent Garden in my nude Mary Jane flats at 7:20 a.m. on a Sunday morning. It was February, the sky was covered by a cloud blanket and the streets were empty and quiet, save for my footsteps and the rapid beat of my heart. Today was […]

Opposites

Everyone has their opposite—there’s a night to day, a yin to yang, and a Chereen to Kristin.

Shine Bright

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but not everyone can always have diamonds. Since sequins and rhinestones are the next best thing, why not go all out with both elements in your outfit?
