Braids

So yes, it’s true, Hunger Games has completely taken over my life.  So as a tribute (ha) to Katniss Everdeen I am dedicating a post to her signature look, a braid.  A braid is the perfect way to deal with unruly hair, is always on trend, and easy to integrate into any do.

Studs

Studs are the perfect way to add a little edge to your look.  An accessory that once belonged exclusively to bikers and punks can now easily be integrated into any outfit!  From hardcore leather jackets to subtle bangles to flashy flats, studs are for EVERYONE!

I LOVE the intensity of this jacket, yet it still seems so accesible.

I love anything backless and the studs just take the dress to a new level

Fur

Fur is definitely not for everyone, but I LOVE it!  To me, fur just screams luxury and for those that love the look, but are friends of PETA there are plenty of amazing faux furs out there.  I know it might seem weird to have a fur post on the verge of spring, but one of the things I love about fur (real or faux) is that you can do so much with it and integrate it into your look and wardrobe in so many different ways!  Especially as it starts warming up outside, but is a little too chilly to wear the little dress you might want to, all you have to do is throw on a fur coat, vest, or stole and you are instantly chilly spring appropriate.

Love the unexpected fur army green combination

Wonderful combination of nudes, the nudes and fabric also make this look perfect for spring! And the bag is amazing!

The fur coat makes this already fabulous outfit even more fab. You can't go wrong with black on black and the shoes are incredible!

Loving the raspberry dress and what a unique way to integrate fur into an outfit! So creative and different!
