My Fashion Heads, today I'm mixing shit up! I'm sure you alllll know by now how much I love adding the unexpected to an outfit. Who would of ever thought that your boyfriend's jeans could come in so handy? Designers have come to the realization that not every girl wants to walk around with tight ass pants on all the damn time, we can be cool and collective too! So with this in mind I took the initiative and took a plain cream blouse and paired it with some boy friend jeans, maybe not the baggiest I've seen but they did the freakin trick! Mixing the unexpected intrigues the eye and is what makes the outfit so interesting. I wanted to show how versatile this pretty little shirt was! Then it got me thinking of how many outfits I could really wear this shirt with... and that's always my closing argument when I come home with shopping bags and have to fess up to my husband, "but I can wear it with jeans, skirt, pants! So many things with just one purchase, I'm SAVING you money!" Scroll on peeps to get the whole vision and the thought process behind this..
We want some excitement when we look in the mirror ladies. Putting your self together, not to impress other people per say (which is always good if you do) but impress your self, if you look good you feel good.
Now the break down:
The first look is a tad casual, still very basic to me, but these boy friend jeans bring the idea that you can look pretty in a blouse but still have the look that your a little rough around the edges. I paired the Guess blouse with zara jeans, surprise surprise, Steve Madden sneaker wedges, zara bag (how fire is it?!?) cotton on clear John Lennon inspired sunnies, my new favorite can't ever leave my side multi cross necklace from Regal Rose and a spiked bracelet from F21. This outfit explains me! I love everything about it!
The 2nd look is not on the totally dressed up side, it of course has my edge, but you can change the shoes to heels or a more simple boot depending on the occasion to where we wear the outfit. I paired a subtle snake print pant in black and a dark red with studded military style boots, Melody Ehsani necklace and gucci clutch. Again mixing hard and soft is the golden ticket, studded boots that can also be used as a weapon, always a thumbs up!
NOW my 3rd look, this is the creme dela creme, thinking outside the box. I had this very cute, maybe even sexy little number which included, sequin shorts from express and my go to going out studded strappy heels...then i thought to myself, SO TYPICAL! I looked in my closet and saw my new camo shirt from Zara (again with studs) and threw it on and it just sang to me. Who would have thought? Its maybe not for everyone, but that's not what this is about, it's about using your imagination to complete a look that just makes you feel good, and if feeling good means throwing a camo studded shirt over a hot little outfit, as nike would say, JUST DO IT! I'm asked a lot by many friends, "you can mix silver and gold metals?", and the answer to that is ALWAYS YES! You don't want to walk around looking like a disco ball, but if you spread the metals through out your body, and stagger it around it will just flow. Matching and playing by the rules is never fun. I grew up with the mother that went by the rule book and was ones of those people who match everything, she'd say "well there's teal in my shirt, so I need teal shoes, and a teal bag" and I'm sorry, but that makes me cringed! That was may be for some people, but I've always been a rule breaker. Break down those comfort walls and make shit happen and enjoy what you see when you look in the mirror! Fashion is all about Having Fun!!
Which look was your favorite?
I wanted this to be inspiring, whether you like my edgier style or not, it's just about being creative with what you wear, take risks and think of the unexpected. See how easy one shirt can be worn so many ways. Dig in your closet and try it, think of all the outfits you can recreate and make into new life.
