Women in Suits on BuzzFeed

Women in Suits on BuzzFeed

I’m always thrilled to receive acknowledgment for my style.   Last week, Buzzfeed video contacted me for permission to use my photos in a video featuring women in suits. Of course, I jumped around the room like a kiddo then calmly gave them the green light.  Check out the video and thanks for watching!

Pink as the New Fall “IT” Color!

Pink as the New Fall “IT” Color!

Hi everyone! What do you think about wearing lighter colors for fall/winter? I’m totally down with it!  I recently purchased a nice PINK suit from Zara.com; especially after seeing several pink and yellow combos grace this fall’s runways and on street style starlets across the globe!

Check out this suit purchased online from Zara.com; one of my  favorite “go to” stores for edgy pieces. I absolutely love the fit  of the suit and the mid weight fabric makes it wearable in warmer months! Now I’m off to find a bright yellow turtleneck sweater or blouse to help complete the above look!  Check out more pink suited looks on my Pinterest page (here) and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Honestly, I’ve never enjoyed fall/winter weather styling.  As a native Texan, it’s not unusual to experience all four season within a week; during our “so called” winter season! Experiencing this, I never purchase loads  of fall/winter clothing.  I choose to stick to a basic color palate and ride the wave to warmer weather.  Check out a few looks I’ve put together accomplishing this.

Pretty in Pink!

Hi Everyone!  Today’s post showcases an awesome J Crew wool suit scored on Ebay this past summer. This suit debuted a few seasons ago, however it’s still a knock out!

Pretty in Pink

First, I love the vibrant pink color, a difficult color to find in a suit.  This one definitely turns heads. Secondly, the fit is amazing! I usually wear a size 2 and 4 in J Crew clothing, the only brand that gives me “that tailored” feel and look.

Pretty In Pink

The seller offered the suit brand new, a size 4 blazer and size 6 trousers. I contemplated at first, and then finally said to myself, “what the heck, just go for it”. I’m sure glad I did! Despite being a size 6, the pants still fit nicely, giving just a hint of sag, which I like at times (the tomboy in me…hehe!)

I styled the suit as separates too; check out how below. Click links to view products on retailers websites for purchase.

Vintage Babes

Vintage Babes

I’ve always been a fan of vintage fashion.  From time to time, I enjoy dressing up with a menswear from different time periods. What are my favorite fashion time periods?  Definitely the 1920s-1970s! Quite a stretch, Right?

For this post, I’ve featured four women who took “menswear looks” to another level. Meet “Vintage Babes”: Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Anna May Wong, and Katharine Hepburn. These ladies dared to dress in menswear,  which I find admirable for their day.
