Right Now: January 1, 2014

I wanted to try something new for the new year, and inspiration struck in the form of a "Right Now" collage to show you all what I am digging this week. This one focuses on things I use weekly lately. daily even.

Finding the perfect pair of boots is quite difficult. I'm on the tall side, and the plus side of things. My calves fall in between regular and wide calf so comfort and finding where those two sizes meet is key. 

Next, a pair of jeans you can dress up or dress down and run around in can take a bunch of tries. I am not always impressed with Old Navy to be honest with you but this time they nailed it )for my body type needs anyway)! 

I like to stick to somewhat simple jewelry that are both colorful and timeless. My body let me know as a young girl that I could not wear just any metal though, so finding the right pieces has proved difficult for me in the past. I can't wear sterling silver, I can't wear anything gold or silver plated. My body tolerates only surgical steel, white gold and platinum. Talk about expensive taste! My sister found the perfect solution for me: wood bangles. No metal to react to.

Bags. Oh bags. I am a bag lady, it's true. I have a LOT of bags. More than I should, more than any woman needs I think. But, I do love them all. I like vegan bags. I like colorful bags, I like big bags that can haul a lot and still hold their shape. This bag happens to fit all of those needs. bonus, it matches my new infinity scarf too!

ONE:  These are the "katy" boots by Gabriella Rocha. They come in black and gray and I have both. Check Zappos and/or 6pm for her styles. vegan. 

TWO: ZAD is a jewelry line I adore. It's fancy, but simple enough and it's affordable. This is the "bead bib". featured on amongst other sites.

THREE:  Tano bags are wonderful, seriously I have no complaints about them. Durable, colorful, super well thought out design, and vegan. That's right. No cow died for this bag. The one in the picture is a boogie bucket. It's my current purse. This shade of green I believe they call 'being uma'. Tano

FOUR:  As mentioned above, I have a love hate relationship with Old Navy. I remember back when you could try on plus sizes in stores, and I remember when they finally learned to STOP putting their logo on everything they made. It made the clothing much more attractive and I finally began shopping there in the late 90s. They were ahead of the game with "jeggings" but I prefer their skinny jeans, with more denim than stretch thank you. Meet, The Rockstar bu Old Navy. Available in many sizes and a ton of washes and colors. ta da!!

FIVE:  Wooden bangles may be too informal for some ladies, maybe too bohemian but I have to say, once you go's all good. Not all jewelry donates some of or all of their profit but these guys do.
