Simple French vibes bring my soul to life. Polka dots are making a chic and contemporary comeback, I for one am a devotee to any classic patterns such as polka dots and stripes. Although this ensemble has mixed patterns, it works well and looks elegant because I used the most classic color combination: black and white. The top is a light sweater that is extremely versatile, the base of the...
Avant-Garde Galore is in town.
Hi everyone! I decided to change my url to http://avante-gardegalore.tumblr.com/ I feel like my old URL “umakemesparklepink” didn’t really say much about my personal style or myself, just that I like pink. Just wanted to let you guys know!

The floral romper adds to the botanical and summery feel of this look. The shirt is simple, but paired with the patterned bottom turns into a memorable and bold piece.I decided to do something rather unorthodox by...
