Fashion Fix: Ruffles

November 17, 2011

Hi everyone! I cannot believe that it’s almost Thanksgiving (where has this year gone?!) and I cannot believe that I am almost done posting on Flights of Fancy!

One of the things I love right now are ruffles of all shapes and sizes. No matter the fabric, I think that ruffles add character to any occasion. Plus, I do love looking at ‘ruffled’ wedding cakes! Enjoy!

Get Styled: Tropical Honeymoon

November 10, 2011

Hi all! As it has been getting colder outside, I have been daydreaming about taking a nice, warm, tropical vacation. I think that going someplace sunny and warm is the perfect getaway from the chilly Midwest winter! If you are planning a tropical honeymoon or vacation anytime soon, don’t forget to pack some of these essentials: a big, floppy hat and sunglasses to block the sun, maxi dresses that can transition from daytime to night and don’t forget the sunscreen! Because nobody looks good with a sunburn!

Fashion Fix: Something (Navy) Blue

November 4, 2011

Hi everyone! Let me just say that I cannot believe that it is already November! This year seems to be flying by. My day-to-day uniform consists of mostly black clothing but lately, I have been scooping up clothing in shades of blue… and navy blue has quickly become my favorite for Fall. It looks classic and timeless and is still a bit more exciting than black.

Get Styled: After Wedding Brunch

October 27, 2011

Hi everyone! I have been a fan of Rachel Bilson since her days on The OC and I really like her new show, Hart of Dixie. It’s so cute! I think that she has a great sense of style too and I love her look below. It’s perfect for an after wedding brunch.

Most likely, you will be exhausted from the night before. I love maxi dresses and skirts because they are comfortable and you still look put-together. Perfect for the day after your wedding!
