Featured in TOMS




I discovered a really cool sneaker boutique in Chinatown called Feature located at 3735 Spring Mountain Rd #205, Las Vegas, NV 89102. This boutique is a hidden gem because unlike LA, Vegas doesn't offer exclusive or unique styles when it comes to sneakers. Feature carries both men and womens sneakers, sunglasses, watches and clothing. I've been on the hunt for some TOMS and found the gray suede version of the Cordones. I've never tried on a pair of TOMS but as soon as I tried these on, I was in heaven! They are extremely comfortable so I was sold.  For more info on Feature sneaker boutique and items they carry visit www.featuresneakerboutique.com


Blake Mycoskie is the Founder and Chief shoe giver of TOMS, and the person behind the idea of One for One, which turned into a global movement. TOMS has given over two million pairs of new shoes to children in need since it began in 2006. For more info on TOMS and how you can help visit www.toms.com/


Q: Why the name TOMS?

A: "There is no TOM. We like to say that everyone is a TOM, because what TOMS stands for is a derivative of the word 'tomorrow' and the idea that we have a better tomorrow. You buy a pair today, and we give away a pair tomorrow."

Incredible, inspiring, and beautiful!

The Color Purple






 Purple is my favorite color of all time and I realized how I haven't dedicated a post to the color purple in fashion.  First of all, I apologize for not having many posts lately.  My chihuahua Taco that I had for exactly half my life recently passed away and I needed time to mourn the loss of my best friend.  There isn't a single day that goes by that I don't think about him.  I never realized how difficult and sad it truly is to lose a pet that you spend so many years with.  Reflecting back on those years I thought, wow, I can't believe he was right there with me through all those ups and downs.  Time flies by so fast that suffering from my loss has made me look at life even more differently than I usually do.  It has made me more aware.  More aware that the people you do have in your life deserve nothing but the best of who you are as a person.  That light inside that you feel on your happiest day should be radiating in you everyday even when it's your lowest day.  Our biggest struggle in life isn't people, our biggest struggle is what goes on in our own minds on a day to day basis.  Focusing on everything you love as opposed to everything that you hate is the only road to freedom and happiness.  It's not always easy, but I'm going to try my best as I am fortunate enough to have a place in this world.  Purple is the color of peace and the unknown for me which is why I've always found myself so drawn to it. 

"As it turns out, almost all colors are in fact just as real as any other color--with the exception of purple. Purple is mostly an artifact of the way our eyes and brains perceive colors and try to make sense out of a world which doesn't always make sense". 
R.I.P Taco you will always be in my heart till we meet again someday
