I thoroughly enjoyed creating & styling my collection, Modern Graphic. Thanks to the hair and make up team who provided killer looks for all the models there! Also big thanks to everyone modeling my styles. Everyone was so lovely to work with!
All the clothing items from my collection were finds from Goodwill stores. I was able to thrift some lovely pieces from Zara, Jcrew, Betsey Johnson, Target, H&M and Ralph Lauren. The vintage statement boots were thrifted and then up cycled into a trendy boho style using another Goodwill item, a belt, as a key element in the design. All the jewelry in Modern Graphic are my own designs. Sstyles can be purchased at glamandgraceshop.com

Cleveland Goodwill Good Style Fashion ShowHey Cleveland! Join us for a super cool fashion event May 7th! Myself and other local fashion bloggers would like to show you the hipness of thrifting and up-cycling at the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show.
Each blogger will be curating collections for the runway showcasing thrifted items from local Goodwill stores. I'm super pumped to view all the creative looks. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided and a pop up boutique will be open for shopping. In case you're wondering, yes, it's gonna be hecka fun.
Get your tickets here (half price!) Come to support all the *good* Goodwill puts into our communities.
I'll be presenting Modern Graphic: A Street Style Collection which will be bursting with uniquely styled bold prints. Monochrome patterns on patterns mixed with chambray, denim and a few pops of color speak loudly in all the looks. Each outfit is casually put together…to fashionably look off beat, highly displaying personality. That’s the art of street style. Also sprinkled though the collection will be up-cycled designs I've created using items from Goodwill. (Bold visual surprises will be flowin'!) Each outfit was budgeted around $15 - $20.

Hey there Spring, I'm really enjoying NOT having to dress like a marshmallow. It's good times. I've still been wearing lots of black and whites (grays too) while adding pops of color. With this look, I'm also adding pops of random patterns...Leopard, polkadots and plaid. All in one outfit. Yes, yes, & yes ...I did that and I highly recommend it. Also, I'm super diggin my new slate blue hair!
Outfit details below.

Hey guys, I moved...again! I was fortunate enough to nab this b e a u t i f u l space in Cleveland's Slavic Village area. After much debate, eventually I felt assured it's right where I want to be and should be, but that's another post.
This space brings many healthy challenges. Let me start by saying that everything is open and there's only one closet. Woahhhh, right? Pretty much everything I have and who I am will be out "on display", that's a little crazy to think about. Most people would try to make extra storage spaces or try to think of ways to cleverly conceal clutter...aka organizing. I've chosen to not go that route. I don't want clutter, I don't want what isn't needed. Please know that each person defines what's needed in their lives differently...and trust me, it's a process and a journey when you decide to go with less. All I know is that I want to live well in this gorgeous space. I don't want to over clutter it with things that don't matter, things I don't need to hold on to.
I'm enjoying / getting used to having a smaller space. As far as size, this loft is about a 1/3 of the size of my house...crazy, right? My house has 4 floors including the basement and finished attic. There were many rooms and spaces I hardly spent time in, yet I wanted to fill the whole place with pretty things...so I spent a lot of time and money doing so. I don't necessarily have anything against that but I felt as if I was focusing on the wrong things in life. I mean come on, I had multiple rooms to keep clothing...remember my dressing room?...Beautiful, but time to head in a different direction and have a different focus. I've really been pairing down what I take with me though this life and will hopefully continue on this path.

This sleeveless blazer / sleeveless jacket style was a hit this past fall and will still be ready to rock this spring now that it's warming back up. I'm a lover of vests and layering so no need to talk me into this look. Plus, these simple and clean line styles are easy to pair with a n y t h i n g ! ! !
