Things that make you go “hmmm”

Happy Friday!  Below are two old pics that I never posted, but both show off my tendency to mix colors that are within the same family.

H&M dress. Victoria Secret top. Colin Stuart booties

Arden B. dress worn as a top. H&M skirt. Enzo Angiolini shoes. Bebe belt


Ever have one of those moments when you say…

I’m an equal opportunist and am all for unisex clothing, but I  do not approve of these Cheap Monday skinny jeans with lace inserts available for men at Tobi.com.  Yes, for ladies.  Hell to the NO, for men.

And with that, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I’m Just Not That Into You.

Dechel Mckillion Earlace Earrings_Anzevino and Florence Strap Leggings

I’m just not that into you.

I’m all for innovation and respect a designer who pushes boundaries, but I will not be rushing out to buy these anytime soon.  Rihanna was pictured wearing designer Dechel Mckillion’s Earlaces ($53) a few months ago, and, though an interesting concept, I’m just not that into them.  Plus, I manage to break my necklaces during normal wear and couldn’t fathom the potential earlobe damage if this ‘Earlace’ got caught on anything.

Love Anzevino & Florence’s design aesthetic for creating new shapes and their play on textures.  However, Anzevino & Florence Strap Leggings ($74), I’m just not that into you either.  While certainly unique, I wonder if the straps would restrict my usual fast walking pace.  Or perhaps if they are a bit restrictive and provide some form of resistance, you could exercise your outer thighs while sitting.

But then again, this is coming from someone who bought leggings with gold chains and is wearing jeans with holes in the knees… which I love.  🙂  I’m sporting my Silence & Noise zipper bodysuit from UO and Love Brigade Sideswipe jeans.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and as always, thanks for reading!

Watch this video and be prepared to smile!  I love to dance and would totally do this at my wedding!

Don’t Be Like A Virgin

My last two shoe purchases (with the exception of my much anticipated TopShop Chloe-inspired ankle boots) have been from Jeffrey Campbell.  Though I’m totally into the 80’s vibe, I could never rock white boots.

These Jeffrey Campbell Like A Virgin Boots ($168) would be more appealing in black, right?!

Holy Inappropriateness

peekaru5Ok, this is somewhat style-relevant.  Yesterday, I wrapped my cold self in a cozy, navy oversized sweater (will need to post a pic later), and got some flack that it looked like a Snuggie.  Trust me, it doesn’t!  Well, today, Glamour blogged about what appears to be a pseudo baby snuggie, but it’s actually the Peekaru.  So wrong on a plethora of levels.  Can you imagine seeing a woman walking down the street with her baby’s face barely peeking out from a hole?  Unfortunate for the mom, but poor kid probably feels claustrophobic.  And there’s nothing wrong with the Snuggie, but things like this just shouldn’t be allowed for public consumption.  End of random rant for today.

Don’t Try This At Home

stolen-girlfriends-club-safety-pin-dress2

I’m all for DIY, but please don’t attempt this.  I mean the fact that this retails for $162 is crazy!  There are only x-small and small sizes left.  Who is buying this?!

I still love you Pixie Market, but this was a miss for me.
