On It


I've mentioned once or twice that I'm loving the holographic trend for spring/summer 2013. Stella McCartney's designs are a major inspiration for this season's hottest looks. If a holographic shoe, legging or dress is a tad outside of your comfort zone, a hologram manicure, handbag, jewelry piece or tech accessory is a great way to go.

I think this trend makes a fun statement. It's a fresh and innovative way to ring in the warm-weather seasons in style. When I think of holograms, my mind wanders back to grade school and my sticker collection. I had books of holographic stickers filled to capacity with everything from NHL playing cards to Lisa Frank unicorns. While holograms were all the rage in the 90s, there's something quintessentially futuristic about its aesthetic (was that sentence pseudo-intellectual enough for you?). These pieces bring me back to the future and that's a place I'm always eager to explore.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
