In the US, TOMS provides prescription eyewear to children in need. This is such an amazing cause and we love TOMS for giving back! Read more about this great cause and get exclusive details in a later post.

The Perfect Boyfriend

Introducing the perfect boyfriend with no drama… He will let you dress him up or down, doesn’t care what size your ass is, and he looks damn good!!! Meet your new boyfriend… jeans.

Denim styles are drifting away from super skinny jeans and are leaning towards a more relaxed style with the “boyfriend” jean. These jeans are perfect for transitioning from Winter into Spring and can be paired with all the hottest shoe styles for Spring, including strappy sandals, ballet flats, oxford flats, and classic heels. Our favorite look is pairing the boyfriend jean with strappy platform sandals and a button down shirt! Check out “Allison’s Pick” below on how to get this look.

Here are some tips:

1.Use either scrapbook paper or colored paper. Print this template and use it to trace on the backside of the paper. Cut along the lines (it doesn’t have to be perfect!)

2. Twist into a cone shape and staple.

3. Decorate your hat! We used lots of things – stickers, tissue paper, ribbon, anything you can glue or staple to a hat!

British Biscuits and Chelsea Boots

For fun try reading this with your best British accent!

I love everything about London and the UK and find it to be absolutely brilliant… I fancy tea time and bloody hell love the lingo – wanker! But most of all I love British biscuits and Chelsea boots!

Chelsea boots are tight-fitting, ankle-high boots that originated during the Victorian Era. These boots were originally designed for horseback riding, but really came out and made their debut during the 1960’s mod scene when John Lennon and Paul McCartney ran into the Chelsea boot in London.  Suddenly, Lucy was in the sky with diamonds, and Chelsea was on all eight feet of the Beatles. The Chelsea boot became an instant iconic success. From then on it was all shoes, sex, and rock n’ roll for the Chelsea.

Check out the new “Carson Chelsea” boot by Frye:

These boots are seriously wearable, from maxi skirts to skinny jeans, and add a little rock n’ roll to every look. Here are some of our favorite Chelsea looks. As Kate Moss would say: “Get the London look.”
