helping hand

In the past year, I’ve realized more and more that I really struggle with asking for help sometimes. As a blogger, this can get awkward…seeing as how blogging takes a village to really make it work (photos, editing, etc, all involve multiple people). I’ve gotten to the point of feeling like I can ask for helpContinue reading “helping hand”

stripes on stripes

I love that moment in fashion/getting dressed when you think, “what!? That’s madness!” to something that isn’t really that “out there” or revolutionary. This outfit is an example of my own response to something that is new to me: stripes on stripes. My inner dialogue sounded a little like this, “….hmmm black and white, andContinue reading “stripes on stripes”

musing in mint (30 days no shopping, day 30)

Well, readers, I’m going to acknowledge that I bought these shoes on day 29 of my no-shopping challenge. In my defense, I had been looking for mint shoes for a long time and finally was able to find them. So, I feel okay about it, as I suspect these heels won’t be leaving my feetContinue reading “musing in mint (30 days no shopping, day 30)”

but it’s not my birthday burberry (30 days no shopping, day 28)

When a friend says to you, “I’m not wearing this Burberry dress and top anymore, do you want it?” The only reasonable thing to say is, “Absolutely.” Am I right? Well, that’s the full story of this dress and top. And while it was no special occasion, birthday, or otherwise, I was very thankful toContinue reading “but it’s not my birthday burberry (30 days no shopping, day 28)”

planning a path (30 days no shopping, day 25)

Maybe it’s the change of seasons or fall anticipation, but I’ve been feeling a little unsure of my path lately. I think I’m headed in the right direction…but the path doesn’t seem so clear. As a result, my brain has been all sorts of jumbled lately. So, I’m going to leave it at that today.Continue reading “planning a path (30 days no shopping, day 25)”

pink polka dots (30 days no shopping, day 21)

Well, readers, it’s day 21 of no shopping, and I must say, I am missing my resaling! But, I only have 9 days to go, so I’m pretty sure I’ll make it at this point…I hope so, at least! Anywho, I wasn’t planning on blogging this outfit, because I really wasn’t sure if the top wouldContinue reading “pink polka dots (30 days no shopping, day 21)”

clumsy but classy (30 days no shopping, day 18)

Well, in typical Fashion Huntress fashion, I was hanging at work in my giant prom-like dress, when I dropped a container of veggie dip on it. I was going to post today about how it’s fun to style what could be a prom dress for work…but really, I think I’m going to just settle onContinue reading “clumsy but classy (30 days no shopping, day 18)”

perfectly parked (30 days no shopping, day 16)

I’m probably one of the happiest people in Chicago right now because it’s basically fall weather, and has been for the past few weeks. I know, I know, there’s people out there that are saying, “WHAT?!” What can I say? I’m a fall lover through and through. Hopefully this look captures summer and fall allContinue reading “perfectly parked (30 days no shopping, day 16)”

still merry in marimekko (30 days, day 14)

Well, readers, I think it’s time that I share…I took note of many of my fellow bloggers and am on my own personal 30 day no shopping challenge. Like most things you are unsure of, I kept this one to myself, figuring I wouldn’t make it. But, I’m 14 days in and I’m pretty sureContinue reading “still merry in marimekko (30 days, day 14)”

denim denim everywhere

I’m not even going to go on and on about denim today, because clearly I do that enough (long story short, I LOVE denim). I may have a problem (ie approx five denim shirts). But, let’s move on from that potential awkwardness, and focus on why I stock denim in this way. Case in point:Continue reading “denim denim everywhere”

spots and stripes (and splashes)

Hum dum, another Monday, readers, right? As far as I’m concerned, the only guaranteed way to jazz up a Monday is with a good outfit and/or good pair of shoes. I may have the Monday blues, but I think sporting a spots and stripes jumper dress look in all blues is the best way toContinue reading “spots and stripes (and splashes)”

unseen gone seen

Seeing clothes in a new way (specifically the ones hanging in our own closets) is not easy, if you ask me. I’ve been styling my shirt dresses in a fairly consistent way, until a posting on gap.com rocked my world. Exhibit A: What? A button down over a button down? …world rocked. Maybe this is a fairly obviousContinue reading “unseen gone seen”
