I’m a Midwest girl who moved to LA after earning a degree in Apparel Merchandising. I've always been obsessed with fashion, and through a ton of hard work, I'm proud to be the Head Jewelry Buyer at bebe. My other passion is art. I paint, draw and create things, like my string art project called StringHeart. This blog is my outlet for sharing my life, my passions and anything else that catches my eye and lives up to the name Worship Worthy. I hope you enjoy! - XO, Ali
Have you been noticing how much velvet is popping up everywhere this Fall? If you haven’t, I am sure you will. Velvet is THE fabric this year, especially for holiday. Best thing about it? You can wear it in small touches, like a choker, or really go for a glam look and rock a velvet dress.
You pick, but either way, it will be luxe.
Random fact: I had a strong hatred for velvet when I was little. HATED it. If my mom tried to put me in a velvet dress, nope. I thought it felt so weird. But as an adult, my mind has been changed. I’m 100% into it.
Whoa… It’s been WAY too long since my last blog post. I can’t believe it! Sometimes life gets crazy, you know? But I have made a promise that I was going to blog more and finally launch the shop, so that’s what I am going to do. Making the statement here and now. It’s been in the works, and is almost ready! There have been some technical snags along the way (making a website is NOT easy, in case you are wondering), but it’s coming soon!
Anyways, this last weekend was a GREAT one and I wanted to share some some pictures of the adventure.
Our friend Athena came to town to visit and on Saturday we ventured out to Malibu to check out Malibu Farm on the Pier for lunch (closer to “linner” by the time we got there but whatever).
The views were incredible and the food was unreal…
WHOA! It’s been a whileeeeee since I’ve posted, and it feels really overdue for many reasons. You know when life just gets away from you? That’s where I’m at right now. How is it all of a sudden JULY? Seriously, this year is flying by. There are a lot of changes coming soon and I can’t wait to share them with all of you!
I get asked questions all the time about the name of my brand- “What does Worship Worthy mean?”, “Where did you come up with the name?”, and “Is it religious?” are the most popular. I feel like with all of the great things coming up, I wanted to share some insight on where this all started for me.
Chokers are the latest trend to DIE and then come back around. But that happens to ALL trends at some point, right? I mean, we’ve seen the 70’s come and go, the 80’s make a resurgence and now, the 90’s. It was only a matter of time, right?
This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a long time now. It’s one of those topics close to my heart, but because of that, I haven’t really been able to find the right words. Plus, it’s hard to be vulnerable sometimes, right?
Self love is such an important thing to learn, even though sometimes it can take a while. I struggled with this for a long time and I feel like I have only recently have come into my own, AND I’M 28! What the hell, right? It’s a tricky thing, that self love. You might think you have it, but do you really FEEL it? That’s the question. (And let’s be real, somedays it’s WAY easier than others… and that’s OK).
Happy Monday, friends!! How was your weekend? Are you ready for the week ahead? I hope so!
My weekend was awesome- equal parts relaxation, adventure and fun (and hustle). Rob and I watched the two Syracuse basketball games (holy shit they were epic games, and I don’t even like sports! #converted), had a little day adventure down to Newport Beach on Saturday where we grabbed a late lunch (Bear Flag Fish Co– SO GOOD!) watched the sunset and had some drinks, and topped off the night cuddled on the couch with House of Cards.
Then Sunday started with a little coffee date with my friend Ashley in Brentwood, then took a nice walk with Rob through our neighborhood. It was so nice to just get OUT and walk around. We didn’t have a time schedule, or any rush to get home, so we just enjoyed each other and actually took the time to soak in the Spring beauty around us. The flowers in LA are popping out in full force… I love it (but my allergies don’t)!
Spring is officially here! Well, kind of. Some parts of the country just got dumped with a bunch of snow…. yikes! I remember those days living in Minnesota.
Even with a bit more snow than I am sure everyone wants to see, Spring is coming and along with warmer weather, comes cuter shoes! I don’t know if it’s just me, but there are some really cute styles popping up this year. More so than years past, I think. Am I right?
My favorite part about accessories? They are the EASIEST way to change the entire look of an outfit. You can take a simple daytime outfit and transform it to a night time look with the change of a necklace (or hat, scarf, whatever you feel). Pretty awesome, right?
Round two of my gifting guide and this one is all about the fellas in your life!
Is it just me, or are men incredibly hard to shop for? It sounds easy, and then you REALLY try to start shopping and it’s impossible. Do you get them a new sweater, a book, a new wallet? I’ve compiled a few things that I’m pretty sure a guy would be more than happy to receive this year!
Is it just me, or is it really hard to think of what to get as gifts for your loved ones this Christmas? It’s tricky every year, I feel like, but honestly I’ve been racking my brain for the past few weeks (trying to plan ahead this year and not be shopping down to the wire!) of what to gift people and it’s been a challenge. And from other people I’ve talked to, it sounds like we’re all in the same boat!
So, to help make things a little easier for you, I’ve decided to compile a few different gifting guides for each person in your life: for him, for her, plus your Mom, Dad and of course, the little ones. I’ll be releasing a new one every few days, so be sure to check back!
