Sooo, I muse about fashion kind of a lot. And one thing I wanted to be able to do here on Diva-Fierce was share some of those musings with you. Having just relieved myself of one of my holiday-present-gift-cards via the purchase of a new (totally, completely, critically necessary!) pair of shoes in a lovely apple red, it occurred to me how often I pair colored shoes with a neutral outfit. It's such a chic, but oh so easy, look. Neutrals are a simple, carefree fashion device...I've got 'em, you've got 'em. They mix, they blend, they complement each other. But sometimes, they just need a pop. And that's where the colored shoes come in. Not only is it a great excuse to buy all different colors of fantasmic shoes, it's a great way to wear colors you adore but which you don't want near your face. Plus, it's always just enough color, never too much. I'm the kind of stylish girl who can't handle just one, single contrast color. You can't believe how often I've tried...literally, talked to myself in front of a mirror trying to convince myself that I DON'T need that second bit of color. Never works. Myself will not cave; I MUST have two. :). As statement rings are easily my fav piece of jewelry, I tend to add a statement ring in a similar (not necessarily matching) color to my shoes. I'll use red with burgundy, sky blue with royal, or a multi-tone ring that goes with a number of shades. This makes myself content :) and I can stop frightening my mirror with the Gollum-like dialogue. If you're a bracelet or necklace girl, you can easily use those instead of rings. Scarves def get it done here as well. I hope you give this look a try (again) sometime :) Happy styling!

I'm a huge fan of singer-songwriters....and, being a fashion-lover, when singer-songwriters also happen to have killer style, well, it makes my little bees' knees weak :). Consequently, Taylor Swift is a favorite...like massive, cray-cray, can't live without her favorite..of mine and nobody, I mean NOBODY, covers Taylor's style like Sarah at tayswiftstyle.com. She id's items, provides links when available, adds Get-The-Look options, does fun surveys and - best of all in my book - provides little insights and comments on Taylor's look that reveal Sarah's own, sterling fashion sense. If you're a fan of style, Taylor or both...or Harry Styles even..(j/k :)), this blog is a MUST READ.

I've mentioned previously that I love to check out independent fashion bloggers for inspiration. I've mentioned the Fabulous Muses (check out the Read More for add'l info), but today, I'm going to introduce you to another of my faves: Wendy at Wendy's Lookbook. Her style is polished, feminine with a splash of attitude and always on point. She mixes textures like a boss. It's so much fun to see what she puts together! And also, I inevitably get some great thoughts on fashion to inspire my look :). I mentioned her magnificent Jewel Tones post recently, which inspired my purple dress inspiration board. Since then, she's been rocking great holiday season styles day in and day out, so head on over and check out her blog!
