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?

Thrift Style Academy

Hi Stylenista's!

Class is in session!  Today's lesson is about creating your own look all while doing so on a budget.  If you've been following my blog, then you should know that you don't have to spend a lot in order to look trendy.  As for myself, I like to see how I can come up with my own trendy look.  

Guess what?  The only item that that I'm wearing that is NOT thrifted are my socks and shoes? And two of the pieces are name brand, get into that! This look is a mixture of a little vintage, a splash of modern with a twinkle of retro.

Men's Fashion: Women's Wear!

Hi there Stylenista!

There is something to be said of a woman who can take the look of a man and make it her own.  Even before I knew about Janelle Monae or my new style crush Esther Quek, I rocked my own version of the menswear inspired look.  

Check me out...
