Eye Candy Fashion Feature #1

Fashion is equivalent to candy, in my book. Whether it's a fabulous handbag, a gorgeous shoe, an adorable blouse, or sexy knee-length skirt, I always get a heady rush whenever a sweet piece catches my eye.

If you're nodding your head because you can relate, you'll also agree that with all the great things to choose from, sometimes putting a look together for yourself can be a tad bit overwhelming .

You're a true-blue fashionista if you can pull an outfit together in your sleep. But, for those of you who can barely grasp the concept of what "a look" is, a helping of enlightenment is all you need.

I didn't have to go far to find stylish options to wade through. Etsy provided all of the cool things to choose from. It was quite tough selecting only 6 looks to help you add a hint of pizazz to your wardrobe.

I enjoyed discovering an abundance of handmade and vintage pieces. Call me your candy-making-virtual-stylist, if you will. My hope is that you love the eye-candy below, as much as I did serving it to you . . .
