What Am I Gonna Wear?

HEY..

FIFTY-FOUR

LOVE THIS SWEATER! THE OFF THE SHOULDER NECK AND DETAILED PATTERN GAVE ME THE OLD SCHOOL LOOK I WAS SEARCHING FOR-THOSE PEICES YOU CANT FIND IN THE STORE . AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS SWEATER AND ITS  CONFETTI CAKE LOOK MADE IT EASY TO PULL OUT ALMOST ANY COLOR I WANT. SALE CORDS ten DOLLARS AND THE SUEDE SHOES A FULL PRICE OF forty. NOT BAD

GOT THE BOOT

DENIM ON DENIM IS WHAT YOU PUT ON WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR AND WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU GOT ‘DRESSED’ . ITS SIMPLE, ITS EASY BUUUUUT, DONT MAKE YOURSELF LOOK BLAH – A POP OF COLOR SOMEWHERE IS IMPORTANT. ADD A SCARF OR BELT, AND IF YOUR STEPPING OUT, USE YOUR SHOES.  OH, THESE JEANS….

ten DOLLARS.

HUGS

RED, WHITE AND BLUE CAN BE DONE WITHOUT WEARING THE AMERICAN FLAG.  I CHOSE NAUTICAL MEETS MILITARY – NAVY OVER ROYAL BLUE & DEEP RED OVER CHERRY RED. THIS JACKET COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT TO GIVE IT THE LAYER I NEEDED. HOWEVER, IT COULD HAVE ALSO BEEN DONE WITH A LONG GREY CARDIGAN AND IF HEELS ARN’T YOUR THING,  FLAT BROWN BOOTS COULD STILL HAVE COMPLETED IT FOR YOU.

ROMEO & JULIET

 THIS HERE, MY seventies INSPIRED LOOK. ONE OF MY FAVORITE DECADES OF FASHION. BELLBOTTOMS & EXTREME FLARES ARE NOT A FAVORITE FOR MOST AND EITHER IS THE BLOCK HEEL – BUT I THINK THEY DESERVE A TRY. A HIGH WAIST ISN’T MEANT FOR ALL BODY TYPES , BUT YOU CAN GET A FLARE JEAN MID TO LOW RISE. I CHOSE THIS SWEATER BECAUSE I LIKED THE NAVY ON NAVY &  TO KEEP IT CLEAN/CASUAL TO DINNER. TO DRESS THIS UP A BIT I’D GO WITH A LONG LOOSE FITTING BLOUSE AND ADD A LONG CHAIN NECKLACE .

MIDNIGHT

ACCESSORIZING WITHOUT JEWELRY, FALL & WINTER HATS ARE AT THE TOP OF MY ‘NEEDS’ LIST FOR THE UP AND COMING SEASONS. one FOR AWKWARD HAIR AND  two FOR WHAT IT’S ACTUALLY USED FOR. MUST HAVE COLORS [CREAM-BLACK-MAROON] THEY WILL COMPLIMENT YOUR CHOICE IN NAVY, GREY OR BROWN ATTIRE. THIS METALLIC VEST OF COURSE FOUND THIRFT SEARCHING, eight DOLLARS! PREPARE TO SEE IT AGAIN!

HARD ROCK

THIS I WORE FOR A COOL NIGHT OUT IN LA. TO ME, BLACK & RED GIVES YOU AN EDGE AND THOUGH SOME PEOPLE STAY AWAY FROM COMBINING THE two – I HAPPEN TO THINK ITS CHIC.  STUDS, LEATHER OR STRIPES IS AN ADD ON;  OR AS I DID HERE, THE SKIRT WAS MY MAIN & I WORKED AROUND IT. I’M IN NO WAY A HAIR STYLIST, BUT, I’VE COME TO NOTICE HOW YOU SPICE UP A LOOK WITH WHAT YOU DO WITH THAT HAIR OF YOURS. THOSE OF YOU WITH LONG HAIR, I’D SAY A SLICKED BACK HIGH PONY TAIL IS EXACTLY WHAT TO GO FOR.

ROZ

 HERE’S A TAD BIT OF FALL TO START THE SEASON. AZTEC PRINT MIXED IN WITH FATIGUE AND FUR. I UTILIZE THESE TRENDS IN MY ADD ONS & ACCESSORIES – LAYERING  EVERYTHING IN WITH SIMILAR EARTH TONES. THIS DRESS WAS A SUMMER PIECE BUT CAN BE BROUGHT INTO MID FALL BY WEARING KNEE HIGH SOCKS OR TIGHTS UNDER. GOLD JEWELRY CERTAINLY HELPS YOUR EARTH TONE APPAREL POP; AND LASTLY – KNEE BOOTS, ANKLE BOOTS, COMBAT BOOTS.

LOS ANGELES

OFF TO LA AND HERE’S MY TRAVEL OUTFIT ; CASUAL COMFORT  - SHOUT OUT TO BRANDEN & MARCEL AT SOCIETYSOP  FOR THE TEE ! BE SURE TO GRAB YOU ONE. KEEP YOU ALL UPDATED WITH MY LATEST – JUST CONTINUE  TO STOP IN … SEE YA!

SORRY

LOVE LOVE MY VINTAGE eighties SWEATER! THIS IS WHAT COMES ABOUT WHEN YOU GO THRIFT STORE SHOPPING. COSBY MEETS FRESH PRINCE , I WASNT LEAVING WITHOUT IT. FUN THING ABOUT IT IS, IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS.  ON A COOLER DAY, I’D WEAR THIS SWEATER WITH LIGHT DESTROYED DENIM AND WHITE CANVAS SNEAKERS. AND TO STEP OUT I COULD HAVE ALSO DONE A BOYFRIEND JEAN WITH AN OLD SCHOOL POINTED TOE. WHEN I SHOP, THE FIRST THING I THINK OF IS HOW MANY WAYS CAN I HOOK THIS PEICE UP.  THE PINK CLUTCH WAS MY SLIGHT ADD ON AND LAST MINUTE CHOICE – AND IN ALL, THE LEATHER PANTS WAS A MUST ….WHY NOT?
