Masculine Chic

Hello Stylenista's,

It's Christmas eve and I haven't done any shopping.  Why? You Ask!  My husband did it all because he says that I'm a horrible gift giver.  (shrugs shoulders and slightly tilts head)  Any-who, I wish you a very safe holiday season.

You may not know, but I love the masculine-feminine look.  I have two people that really embody this style - Esther Quek and Janelle Monae.  Both of these lady's have really owned the menswear for women style.  What's really cool about JM is that she manages to pull off this look with only two colors.  Esther on the other hand is a beast hands down.  I can't wait to meet my personal designer.  We have some work to do.  Now the one up that I have on Esther and Janelle is that I achieved my look with thrifted pieces.  Can you guess which piece I paid the most for?

Thrifted Vintage

Hi there Stylenista's

So last year I learned of an event named B.Fab Awards hosted by Tastemaker Magazine.  After reading up on what this event was about, I definitely made it my business to attend the next one.  Next year I'll be a nominee in the category of Best Style Thrifter.

As a stylist, it was of the utmost importance that my attire for the evening was on point.  I never know whom I'll meet.  After much pining and back and forth with myself about what to wear I settled on this black and cream polka dot vintage dress.  The awesome thing about this dress is the price.  Since the sales associate was trying to flirt with me, he didn't charge me the price of a formal dress.  Although nothing would have come of this little exchange, I'm all for saving a dollar.
