If you haven't fallen completely head over heels for Ellie Goulding yet, then I'm sorry, but we just can't be friends.
I mean, what's not to like?
I could sing her praises for hours - not only on the musical front, but look at this brazen blonde's swoon worthy style! I guess I'm kind of partial to blondes, being one myself - but that bias aside, the girl has talent! Lots of it.
Topping the charts in the US and in the UK and going platinum (not just the hair-color) must get exhausting, but it appears she still has time enough to go shopping.
Goulding sports a wide array of stylish looks ranging from sophisticated to playful and hits every trend right on, never over accessorizing or looking too fussy.
As much as I could ramble on about her chic wardrobe and gorgeous blonde locks, her talent is what really makes her unique. She's not just another pretty face. Even though her face is like, suuuuper pretty.
If you haven't been able to tell - Ellie loves her some leather. Try investing in a pair of leather leggings or pants this fall and pairing them with a floaty, feminine top. It's the perfect combination of good girl / bad girl.
While we're on the topic of leather-wear, how about an awesome and ever so slightly intimidating leather jacket to complete your fall wardrobe? If you're not into looking like a total badass (wtf) and still want to retain all your feminine charms - why not try a pastel pink or white alternative?

A sweet and talented friend of mine, Kallie of Love, Simone has an affinity for creating the most adorable play wear you'll ever see. Frilly and whimsical - each piece is unique and most are made from re-purposed vintage fabrics. Fun and eco-friendly!
This last Friday I got a chance to stop by her trunk show which was held at Designer Renaissance in Berry Hill, another fun consumer conscious shopping stop for previously owned designer pieces.
There were plenty of opportunities for late night shopping not only with Kallie's Trunk Show and Designer Renaissance - but The Trunk Nashville also made an appearance with a great selection of fancy finds and locally crafted fare.

music scene in 2010 with the release of their video “Enter the Ninja” which
went viral soon thereafter. It was the intensely powered raps, crotch grabbing

Yolandi’s style is certainly not for the feint of heart; utilizing an arsenal
of ripped up t-shirts, hot shorts and spandex pants really does portray a white
trash vibe, but with more intent and vigor. If anyone can make white trash look good, it’s
