Kate Spade Interview: From J-School to Fashion Designer, Living the New York Dream, and Starting Frances Valentine

fv_willow_blog120516

If you’ve scrolled through my Instagram for a hot second, I bet you can assume that I already have my Kate-Spade themed wedding planned on Pinterest (you’ve been warned future hubs)! So when I was invited to interview Kate Spade herself (my inspiration both career-wise and stylistically), I was SHOOK. First Tyra Banks, then an […]

Don’t Ask Why NY x American Eagle | Open Back Cowl Tank

dont-ask-why-vs-tinseled-pink

Baby got BACK this week. Bet you guys didn’t know that American Eagle has an ultra cool, New York City-meets-Paris-meets-Los Angeles ¬†line with a one-size-fits-all clothing called Don’t Ask Why NY.¬†Well, now you do! One-size-fits-all brands tend to fit a smaller range of sizes, but I have to say I’ve been a fan for the […]

Check (and polka dots) please!

Just like the movie Clueless, the favored wardrobe staple in the film-plaid-has a zero percent chance of being forgotten. So after scoring this amazing black, white and brown plaid mini from Abercrombie near Thanksgiving break, I couldn’t wait to bring the 90s skirt into the 21st century (goodbye obnoxious mustard/matchy-matchy/scratchy fabric set). The best part […]

Easter Pattern Play

Thanks for hopping over to the blog today! I have a fun take on the LWD (little white dress) that will keep you comfy for all your Easter Sunday activities. Instead of choosing classic pastels for the Spring holiday, I opted for some brights. After all, it’s about being hoppy-right? And nothing says “oh, happy […]

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Spring officially arrived last Sunday. Well, for me anyways! I attended a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed tea banquet, wore a flowery sun dress and picked daises. OK, not really. I picked them from the table arrangements at the tea, but it still counts right? Going to tea is always a good etiquette test and a […]

Top Five Valentine’s Gifts

I’ve certainly felt the love this week and am excited to share my top Valentine’s gifts for the trendiest girl in your life (whether it’s for a girlfriend or your GALentine). I know my BFF wouldn’t mind receiving these gifts! From Kate Spade’s winky printed clutch to Tory Burch’s ultra chic Fitbit cover (who knew […]

Downtown Girl

Attending the journalism school at ASU gives me the opportunity to live in the heart of downtown Phoenix. So I thought I should probably give you a little tour of the city that I love! There are plenty of murals, old buildings and quirky pieces of art hiding around town. You’ll always find me exploring […]

Collegiate Style 101: Now in Session

Welcome back to class collegiates! There’s no doubt the best part of going back to class is showing off a brand new wardrobe. I’ve already lined up the first week’s looks…(and possibly the following week’s)! As a journalism student, my outfits must be professional, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have some fun! It’s especially […]

My Holiday Haul

It’s almost Friday! So that means it’s time to relax and do a little shopping. This week, I’m sharing what St. Nick brought me for Christmas to give you some post-holiday shopping ideas. It was definitely a tinseled pink holiday thanks to my favorite designers like Kate Spade, Lauren Conrad and Juicy Couture, my holiday […]
