Shade Ink*

The inspiration behind this look Gals was an ink pot… it’s amazing how one visual of inspiration can get the mind going, but that’s all it took! So when I thought of “September in Shades”, what came to mind was dark black and blue hues. In this case, a visual of blue and black ink, dripping, […]

Navajo Strength

Lord or lord, we love us some leather! Who doesn’t love a leather jacket in the fall? It’s also a piece that every gal pal should own. It’s versatile to dress up and down, and was exactly what we wanted in this look to dress up a black, tribal printed T! But that’s not it, […]
