Piece-by-Piece: On the Dot

May 30, 2012

Hi, Dolls! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend and a sincere thank you to all of those who fight for our country and for our freedom! Aside from trying to catch up on some beauty sleep, I couldn’t resist my favorite Memorial Day sales. I’m really digging these high-low collared chiffon blouses. They’re comfortable, professional and can transformed easily from day-to-night. I’m finding a lot of them in TJ Maxx and Forever 21. Here is a Piece-by-piece breakdown:

  • Beige polka dot high-low button down shirt (Marshalls)
  • Mint Skinnies (can be found at Target, Forever21 or H&M)
  • Jessica Simpson Fuschia peep-toes with Gold heel
  • Teal vintage clutch





Color Me Bold

March 13, 2012

Oh tweekers, I’m full of ennui at the moment. Why you may ask? Well I feel like people are afraid of color, so they decide to torture me with their drab wardrobe. I long for festive, and vibrant colors of yesteryear. Give me the cobalt blues, hit me with some canary yellow, for goodness sake slap me across the face and color me  lilac!

Anyways, as spring approaches everyone should be aware of the color storm that I predict. As evidenced in the runways, this spring is all about adding POPS of color to your style.

Colors that once were used to compliment, are now dying to be the center of focus. I’m currently living for the color yellow. Below you’ll find just a couple of ideas of how to incorporate some daring hues into your life. Just let them in and let them touch you. But, not inappropriately, I think I’ll get sued for somehow indirectly sexually harassing you. I don’t know I’m kind of fuzzy on what the laws are.

Whatever.

Let’s begin with red. I am always big on the use of red and navy together. There’s something so 80s/90’s Tommy Hilfiger/Ralph Lauren Wasp about it. Also, these combined color schemes remind me of the tablecloth my mother used to use on thanksgiving and it makes me feel safe. As you’ll note I decided to add a checkered bowtie. Everyone knows that I live for a good bowtie, and also a fun pattern to spruce things up. Take not of the leather goodies that I’ve paired up with this fresh outfit. The brown leather look kind of neutralizes the whole ensemble, and really takes the look into spring.

Next up we have the orange and blue look. As some may attest to wearing blue and orange together because of sports conflicts (I’m looking at you ‘Noles fans) it’s quite an elementary pairing. Honestly, it really is. Do y’all remember when you were little and learning the color wheel, which by the way was my toughest lesson to learn because I’m borderline colorblind and it made feel like Forest Gump. Anyways, orange and blue are opposites therefore they “go together.” I again added a fun pattern with the shirt. Polka dots are everything during the spring season. The Fedora tops the look off quite nicely and adds a touch of beach bum chic. As far as the belt and shoes I was going with a somewhat nautical theme, which again ties into the whole beach bum chic idea. The glasses are really just so people will think you’re more than just a pretty face. You’re not.

blue-orange look
Lastly we have the yellow pants. Honestly I came up with this look at 3 in the morning after not sleeping for a while and I got a little lost. At some point it looked like a bumblebee, and then somehow I ended up with big bird/paisley/biker chic. I’m not sure what I expected the end result to be, but I’m borderline in love with what it turned out to be. Again I’m big into patterns so the shirt is what does it for me. No actually it’s the leather-studded bow tie that does the trick. Or maybe it’s the biker boots? But the leather jacket is what I’m really living for. Actually it’s just a big cluster of OHMYGODTHISISAWESOME! While this look may seem a tad extreme for some, for me it’s just what the doctor prescribed to rid me of my ennui.

Well fashion tweekers, be big, be bold, be strong. Roar!

It’s 3 am.

That is all.
