LIKE A BOSS!!! – ShopStyle: Rag & Bone Exclusive 42nd St Ombre Blazer –
I am a democrat from Chicago, IL so I was very proud to hear Tammy Duckworth tell her story. On a very related note I adored how she fabulous she looked and am now craving a red blazer. Found this cute blazer below in my initial search.
I am searching for the perfect slouchy top for fall
After talking to my bestie I have begun to consider what my fall wardrobe would look like if I in fact planned it in advance. Each of us has had a weight change since last fall (hers a wonderful loss mine we won’t mention lol) and we each need multiple pieces for our new sizes. When you plan in advance you can purchase the trends you want, cultivate the look you want, all while staying on budget. Lets say you set aside $75 each paycheck/twice a month so that would give you $450 each season.
First you want to think of how you live: is most of your time spent at work? What do you do on the weekends? Do you have an active night life and what clothes will that include? Myself I will spend most of my time at work and on weekends most outings include my year and a half old son. That being said I also do a sprinkle of night life events and I am single therefore will be dating as well. So I’d say 75% would be work, 20% weekend, 5% nights out. Therefore I will make sure that most my budget goes to work and spend accordingly.
Next, do you know your style? I personally fall in a sexy secretary – lady-like prep look, think Charlotte with a good sprinkle of Samantha. If you don’t know your style figure it out and borrow from others. Pick up the latest People Style pick out the celebrity whose closet you would like to raid. Next Google that celebrity and check out the images tab. Taking a good look at that should show you what you like. I personally would love to steal Kerry Washington’s closet any day.
Keep these first two steps in mind when shopping. Your personal lifestyle and fashion style will stay with you forever and if you do it right you do not need to add in one trend to look stylish every day of your life. If a trend does not mix with your style do not get get it. If it does not look good with your body type do yourself a favor and stay far far away.
Next building your look . . . Bottoms for Fall 2012
There are a few trends I am considering playing with this fall.
Colored Pant for Fall = Colored Corduroy
I am looked at fall colors, mustard yellows, ruby reds, and deep plums that can be worn at work as well.
OOoooo it feels like its been years since I heard Chuck say that the way he did last night :). I love Chuck Bass :). For some reason everything that I loved in this episode was an accessory.
As far as my friends on the upper east side Queen Blair had me craving a particular journal. Now most of the world must of found it soon after the episode aired because the Tiffanies blue journal is gone. But they do have it in Red and silver though.
As far as the episode goes Serena made me want to go buy a black slip and sweet pink pumps.
Okay, seriously I will probably talk about Pinterest every freaking day. I love it! It’s changed my life! One of my lastest finds through Pinterest is the site Dorthy Perkins. Look at these little lovelies!
from Just Jared – Ok, I know my best friends are Bey stans and might kill me but I did not like this dress! I think she her body is awesome post baby but that too light ‘flesh’ colored girdle just screams at me and takes away the sexy that I feel the dress meant to have.
