About me

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I started this blog as a creative outlet from a job I enjoyed but was very conservative.  I've always loved fashion and clothes.  For me, dressing "to the nines" is more of a state of mind of finding and wearing outfits that one feels amazing in.  My style is very classic and feminine.  I hate to pay full price for anything and don't believe you have to spend a million bucks to look great.  However, I will always splurge on a great pair of shoes. I look forward to sharing my fashion finds with you and hope you enjoy dressing "to the nines"!

A little about me.  

My name is Nicole.  I am a Southern girl trying to live life to the fullest.  I believe shoes can make an outfit.  Dessert is my favorite part of the meal.  I love food, and am trying to get better in the kitchen.  I love to travel and Argentina, Austin and South Africa are all on my list.

I look forward to sharing with you!

  1. I really like your blog. I'm wondering if your items are appropriate for a 48 year old. I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs with few wrinkles. I've been told I look 35 but recently when I wore boyfriend jeans, booties and a black sweater, a male friend said it verged on age inappropriate but I pulled it together. I've looked at blogs by women in their 40s and they look old and frumpy...not sexy. Also, I'm careful not to show too much clevage and I don't where mini skirts. Help!

  2. Hi Nicole ! Hope you’re fine.
    I wanted to let you know that i’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award !
