Creative genius Chris Rellas takes historical art and infuses it with modern fashion, resulting in pure gold.

Fall is just around the corner. YAY. It's still 100+ degrees in Phoenix but I'm dreaming of the day I can break out my sweaters and start layering again.

<< If This, Then That >>
IFTTT is an internet optimization tool that has endless possibilities. With the slogan, "put the internet to work for you", IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections between different channels. You can set up different 'recipes' like "If I post a picture on Instagram, Then post it as a native image on Twitter" or try "If the weather forecast says it's going to rain tomorrow, Then send me an email to warn me". This site/app kills many birds with one stone and is a HUGE time saver. Definitely one of my favorites, especially for social media related things.

<< The Full Altuzarra for Target Lookbook >>
I wasn't a huge fan of recent designer collaborations with Target (looking at you, Peter Pilotto) however the Altuzarra collaboration which drops on September 14th looks extremely promising. After peeking at the lookbook that Target just released, I'm falling really feeling the way they spiced up everyday workwear with snakeskin and pops of red and green. For such stylish pieces at an incredible price point, I deem this collection a must cop. Sitting outside of Target in the wee hours of the morning and all.
<< Carto Creative's City Art Prints >>
While looking for some interesting art to grace the walls of my new house, I stumbled across Carto Creative and their simplistic, bold city map prints. There's over 400 cities to chose from (although I think I'll be choosing Los Angeles over Phoenix) and you can even customize the print with over 50 color options. The classic color map prints are my favorite, showing an aerial street view of your chosen city, but they also offer different options like skylines and typography maps.
