But I thought it would be fun to test out a few trends, and what better what better way to do so than on my Polyvore board. Continue reading Trying On Some Trends

Champagne party in Paris!

I love champagne parties, especially the ones that happen for really no reason in particular….

A little dress up, a little glam, a handful of friends, bottles popping and people dancing…. Life can be oh so effervescent!
