I was first introduced to Le Dragon d'Or while watching the TV series "Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23". The main character in the show always wore this eye catching handcuff necklace, it made each and every one of her outfits perfect.
The Dragon d'Or Bound Collection is something that every woman should have in their jewelry box.
The pieces are unique, edgy and yet still beautiful. Besides the fact that Le Dragon d'Or has superior quality, the Bound collection (as well as their other collections) are reasonably priced for such fashion forward jewelry.
I wear my 18" silver Bound necklace every single day! It's one of my favorite pieces. You can even mix up your jewelry and wear several different necklaces, you'll notice that the Bound necklace stands out each and every time.
The Bound collection is sexy, edgy and strong.
You can check out the Le Dragon d'Or website HERE or contact them to order via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
This week, I will be posting my first outfit post featuring the Bound necklace! Stay tuned.

We all wear clothes. But have you ever thought about what your clothing was made of and how it affected the environment?!
Take a look in your closet, and have a peek at the tags. Not only is most clothing made out of cotton, it's usually made in China. Which means it has to travel around the world to end up in your t-shirt drawer.
The fabric industry is one of the most polluting on the planet! Cotton makes up 10% of the world's pesticides and 25% of its insecticides. Did you know it takes half a pound of chemicals to make one plain jane tee?! Now take a look at your t-shirt drawer and do the math!
Pesticide use isn't the only issue associated with the cotton industry. Child labour, human rights and bad work conditions are also serious issues.
So take a second to re-think buying that cotton tee, and check out some great alternatives!
Designers have been experimenting with alternative materials, and have found that every soy and flax can be spun into the most beautiful of fabrics.
Organic cotton has become increasingly popular. Organic wool can be more expensive, but the sheep haven't been dipped in toxic pesticides or been involved in common processes that hurt and abuse the sheep. Of course, I really like the hippie alternative...hemp! Even non-organic hemp is better for the Earth than regular old cotton. It naturally uses less pesticide and herbicide, grows faster than cotton. PLUS, an acre of hemp absorbs 5 times more carbon dioxide than an acre of forests which would play a role in curbing global warming.
Linda Loudermilk uses bamboo, organic cotton, and soy blends in her luxury eco-friendly line. You can also check out Deborah Lindquist for vintage pieces and clothing made out of recycled fabric. If you need an even bigger selection of super amazing eco-friendly clothing check out Greenloop, Pangaya, and Coco's Shoppe. H&M and American Apparel even have fabulous eco-friendly items available!

Full of glitz, glamour, ornate details, and a true style all its own - what girl wouldn't want "The Great Gatsby" look? Whether you are looking to enjoy a casual Gatsby themed garden party or don your most glamorous look at a fabulous cocktail evening, there are plenty of ways with ModCloth to add a flapper-esque flair to any look this spring/summer.
- Details, details, details. Epaulets, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins were highly used during this time period to add glitz to an evening outfit.
- Slender silhouettes. While you could still see a full skirt, long hemline, and high neck, the robe de style dress featuring a drop waist and straight cut was the most popular style.
- Haute headpieces. To top off the entire look, add a whimsical & decadent headpiece from ModCloth. You can even DIY a fabulous headband with ribbon, feathers, and gemstones!

These past few weeks have been amazing for Olsen spotting!
This year for the MET Gala we were graced with both Mary-Kate and Ashley!
Ashley was wearing a divine vintage Christian Dior orange-flowy embellished dress.
Mary-Kate had her hair down, with waves and a small hidden braid. She was wearing fur, a long navy embellished dress, and a long overcoat.

The Met Gala is Fashion's Oscars.
It's my favorite night of the year.
The live feed on Vogue.com was wonderful, since I couldn't be outside the MET myself. However, I didn't enjoy the hosts simply because they cut off some of the most fabulous people! Who would cut off Vivienne Westwood? I didn't think it was real life for a moment.
I never had a punk stage, but it is safe to say after seeing all of the wonder from Chaos to Couture, I will most definitely be adding some more studs and safety pins to my closet this year.
Sarah Jessica Parker's entire outfit. Hello, did you see her mohawk?!
Anne Hathaway's bleach blonde hair. Yes.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were BOTH in attendance. Winning.
Cameron Diaz's cape.
Kristen's little speech to the cameras "Provoke something!" I admire her.
Bee Shaffer. I need to know more about this girl. She's fabulous.
Katy Perry's crown.

The most common question asked besides the usual "who are you wearing", was "what is your favorite punk song?" I'm about to share mine, what's yours?
