JEAN FEIGN

Back from HIATUS:  We all get a little busy and take some time off…

Here it goes: “Wait another fashion blogger?” (insert eye roll here.) Yes, I have heard it all “Wait people make money off taking pictures of themselves????”

However, to all you creative fashionistas hats off to you! It is because of you, Pinterest Ideas on what to wear on a date to meet a boyfriend’s parents, a wedding guest outfit etc. There are some style inspirations for our generation!

I do not need Couture or hardly ever buy high end RTW. However, my appreciation and obsession with Alessandro Michele’s designs and transformation of Gucci as a brand has me falling faster than the leaves outside (white girl pumpkin spice latte joke can be definitely inserted here.)  I seriously am in love with all the designs and the meaning behind his brilliant ART. I had the privilege of getting this jean jacket but you do not need to get the Gucci RTW to help your individuality come alive. Fashion forward millennials!

You can get a jean jacket just about anywhere and as for patches even Michael’s Craft Store sells them. So this fall let your freestyle flow! Collect patches and add them on to your jacket anything that you feel relates to you. Before you know it you created a capsule piece to a wardrobe.

How to wear your favorite statement boots without looking like a “HO HO HO”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Suede Santa would surely be jealous of….

Furs to keep you festive…

Designers that will help you deck the halls…

In order to be able to wear my six inch heeled boots without looking too risqué I combine the right lengths.

  • Do look for skirts that flow and are mid-thigh or knee length. Any shorter and Santa might put you on the naughty list.
  • Do wear stockings to provide a sleeker more sophisticated look.
  • Keep away from short and tight with a high statement boot if you are trying to remain looking classy.
  • Try a hairstyle that doesn’t take too much attention off the outfit. Fur and suede boots are attention grabbers. Take your hair off your pretty face to really make your outfit pop! I am using a low bun for this purpose.

I am pictured wearing:

ARITZIA cotton shirt & Brandy Melville Suede mid-thigh skirt

Bonkers Over Bags

Reading Rue La La’s post on the style guide to handbags just puts a smile on my face! http://www.ruelala.com/blog/handbags-and-purses/

Every style bag holds a purpose for a different function or event. So without further adieu I present to you my must have bags and what I can’t live without that gets stored inside.

The daily:

Managing HR calls for a bag that can fit the necessities plus some of my business friendly items. The bag that functions as a workbag I try to fit as much in as I used to fit in my childhood rolling backpack (yes I am guilty of being one of those kids that took up the extra space in the halls to roll her books.) Anyway, I look for something stylish that also gives me enough room to store what I need. I love the Celine bags but I feel as though storing too much in these beautiful bags can make them loose shape faster. Chanel’s shopping bag allows me to fit my work essentials while giving me a separate place to put items I want to grab quickly without trying to rummage through my note pads. Any tote, would also serve the work purpose well.

Night Owl:

When it’s time to hit the town I look for a bag that is much smaller but also allows me to fit just what I need for the time being. A clutch would be a perfect going out bag. This Miu Miu bag turns into a clutch by removing the jeweled strap, which you can also wear as a necklace.

ALL BARK NO BITE

So I have been a little MIA bloggers I am sorry but don’t worry the b*tch is back. Just in time for my favorite season. Don’t start to get all CATTY on me that I have not posted once a week (I will make it up to you all.) The Givenchy Rottweiler is quite symbolic in the fashion world It helps give off an edgy look that might as well scream we all didn’t all want to be princess’ when we grew up. Let’s face it if there was a darker color than black I would wear it but placing a growling vicious dog on a black backdrop now that is JUST so FETCH (and fierce don’t get it twisted.)

Some Fall Favorites:

Hermes cuff bracelet

Givenchy skater shoes

Givenchy wallet

All Saints leather jacket

You either love them or hate them but they are popping up everywhere. So it sucks for you if your not a fan of the warrior sandal considering people will still keep wearing them at least until next season. Fashion icon Betsey Johnson once said, “Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.” Betsey hit the nail on the head with this one considering most males see this look and think of a girl lacing up for the movie 300. I on the other hand would love to be labeled a badass Spartan but that’s another story.
The love/hate reaction of the shoe came to my attention yesterday while sitting in a nail salon. The notorious nail artists that talk about you and SWEAR that you cannot comprehend what they are saying. Your right I can’t understand what you are saying, but I can however read body language. One woman says to the other something about my boots and actually goes to touch them. If this does not give me the hint that you are speaking about what I am wearing or me then you must think I am absolutely oblivious. I don’t know how many handbags or shoes I have brought to nail salons over years and watched as they actually tried on or touched and made comments to each other about it. So I guess Betsey was once again right am I dressing for other women? Apparently I have to be dressing for the nail artists. They are going to critique the hell out of me so I should always be looking my best. However, back to my story I watched as one explained to the other that she liked my boots and the lady responded back to her “NO NO TOO HIGH.” Thank god a pedicure is relaxing because playing the role of my Spartan self yesterday I almost wanted to kick her in the face for that comment. And scream, “Tonight we dine in hell.” Yes, 300 is available on demand so I obviously saw it and needed to quote that. That being a little aggressive, but I mean she did have my feet in her hand. So basically the rest of the appointment was just plain awkward.

Love them or hate them but don’t forget to pack your Spartan attitude if wearing them out in public. You may need to protect yourself from the gladiator hater.

I of course LOVE my gladiator sandals from LF Soho that are Sam Edleman’s circus collection.
My shorts were perfect for yesterday’s extremely humid weather found at Oasis Boutique in Montclair, NJ
Tank from Aritzia (extremely comfortable I could literally sleep in that.)
Bag is Prada thanks to my grandma for letting me rock it 900 times.

Why my quarter life crisis, AKA hitting the big 2-5 is not making me swoon in the month of June. (Please save all grunts and moans about my over emphasis on 25.)

1. I no longer have my birthday planned out months prior. I remember a time when I put more preparation in my birthday dress then some brides do in a wedding gown. Sad? I think not, I would rather label myself as being very prepared for any possible outcome. The outcome of course is not having a “fugly” dress at my once a year celebration.
2. My only child syndrome now just looks like I’m being antisocial. There was a point in my life where hanging out with my dog and a box of skinny cow ice cream was just me unwinding and being an only child. I mean since every girl has been quoting Marilyn Monroe since age 12, let’s be real remember when she said, “when I’m alone I restore myself.” Or how about Hepburn saying, “I don’t want to be alone, I want to be left alone.” Pretty sure that describes me to a T.
3. Netflix seems more fun then nightclubs. Is it just me or does the sound of going out make anyone else actually tired sometimes? I would rather binge on Orange is the New Black season two. Sorry not sorry…
4. Getting your nails done is now a chore. Recently brought to my attention by one of my best babes, was the impeccable hearing of those nail artists-they are ALWAYS listening.

So fellow fashionistas and babes in a quarter life crisis hang on tight, but if something happens just blame it on your quarter life chaos. FYI some people who hit a midlife crisis are known to buy cars and go on shopping sprees. I may or may not be considering adding this to my to do list but until then check out this sundress from Aritzia that comes in multiple colors it is AMAZING!

The Future Of Fashion Is Looking Bright!

This past Wednesday I had the opportunity of being a guest at the Future Fashionistas fashion show held at the Wilshire Grand Hotel in West Orange, New Jersey. Thanks to MTL Communications I was able to witness firsthand all the talent and hard work behind this program. I could not have been more impressed at what a fantastic job the 6– 18 year old girls accomplished. Gazing in awe as I watched them show off their creations they personally sewed during their time with the program.

I had the chance to speak with Future Fashionistas owner Hallie Dennis who pleasantly showed me around as the girls anxiously prepared for their fashion show. Ms. Dennis’ daughter Dylan showed off her New York City inspired dress proudly. It came as no surprise that the program is extremely positive for young girls in helping with self-confidence and delivering a powerful message of girl power. The energy was contagious in the room that night and the girls were just as proud of themselves and each other as the parents, guardians, and their role models were of them.

The girls not only showed off one outfit or collection for the night but rather several pieces each including a line with Zara Tarez in which contestant Emily Chaleff won the opportunity of having her skirt design in Zara’s upcoming fall collection this year.

Reversible ponchos with hobo bags, one shoulder dresses and shirts, butterfly tops and Zara print bottoms, contrast sleeves on a-symmetric tops, pajama bottoms and matching bags, rocker tees, 14 panel leather zipper back dresses, infinity scarves and matching crop tops, tear and skater dresses, and pieces to even dress their dolls the girls so incredibly showed off their originality and creativity. Each piece had its own uniqueness from the rest of the group.

The future of fashion is looking very bright keep up the great work girls!

It wasn't me, it was you

My graphic tee sparked raised a legitimate question I have for all you “bad girlfriends” out there. So badass babes were you in fact “bad” girls or rather girls that were left dealing with poor excuses of men that couldn’t handle just how amazing you were? No this isn’t something off my Pinterest inspirational quote board I am being for real!

Ask yourself the following questions:

1) Does your “man” still live at home with mom?
2) Does he have an undesirable whine that seems to be never ending? (Give him cheese this pairs great with wine.)
3) Does homeboy have his own checks?!?
4) Does he use social media as a way to vent out his problems? (Suggest him looking into zocdoc.com for a therapist that may accept his insurance because chances are your FB friends don’t care if it’s complicated bro.)
5) Has he surprised you or made you laugh in the last couple months? (Not shocked that he still can’t put the toilet seat down or laugh at the fact that he is much more of a tool then anything Sears has to offer.)
6) Does he pick up weights at the gym more frequently then bills at dinner? (If he can afford to have huge jugs of protein around the house he can afford a dinner tab trust me.)
7) Does he talk to Siri more? (Guys that constantly are on their phone are just not cute and I highly doubt he’s trying to find how many florists are in the area to make up that dinner he didn’t pay for.)

Ladies, if 1-7 applies chances are you are only a bad girlfriend cause hombre is a little insecure to match what you have to offer. Kick him to the curb with the suggestion of downloading Tinder the app is free just sayin’ …

I’m wearing another one of my favorites from Chi Flo again in this Bad Girlfriend crop!
My shoes are the circus collection by Sam Edleman.
