Happy Thursday people!  It's almost the weekend and I'm ready to grab it by the horns.  Speaking of horns, this is Taurus season (doing a little dance).  Can you guess why I'm so happy?

My birthday is next month - Cinco de Mayo or the 5th of May.  I don't plan on doing much because it's not really a milestone year, plus I'm not that big on shindigs.  May is also my blogs 3rd birthday.  I really can't believe how far I've come to have had no clue about what I was doing in the beginning.  Can't wait to see what's to come.  

Would you guess that I was a tomboy growing up?  All the way up to my first year in college.  When one day while sitting in class, I just decided that I wanted a change; I was going to tap into my feminine side.  But every now an then, I like to revert back to my tomboyish looks.  I just know now how to add some girlpower magic to the style.  What do you think, have you ever thought about menswear inspired fashion?

Denim Jumper + Brief Case

Please bow your heads in a moment of silence for my briefcase...............

Okay, I thrifted this mini briefcase a while ago.  Since I'm a huge fan of mens inspired looks I was grateful to the thrift gawds for this awesome find.  The reason for the moment of silence is because I ran over it after this photo shoot, tear!  Maybe I luck up on another one.  

Are you ready for the holiday's?  I am!  I'm mostly looking forward to not having to wake up earlier for work.  This will give me a good chance to work on more valuable content for you guys.  2016 is going to be a lot better than this year.  The best is yet to come.

FEATURE Friday

Feature Friday with
Jamal Jackson of Style Society Guy

As a wife and a mother of a young son, I often look for style inspiration from male "stylenisthim's."  I somehow came across this stylish young gentlemen's page and was so amazed.  Check out a few of his look and read our conversation to see why...



1.             How were you introduced to fashion/style?

Growing up my dad taught me the importance of grooming, cleanliness and always looking presentable.  So I think my love for fashion was kind of a spin off from that.   It wasn’t until I got older that I starting taking an interest in fashion and style. 

* Who is your favorite style icon?

My style is a combination of neat and clean and eclectic and colorful.  For my neat and clean side, David Beckham.  He is the example of what my father taught me about how a man should look.  For my eclectic side, I would have to say Pharrell Williams or Mark Ronson.     

* What’s your favorite season as far a fashion goes?

Spring!  The weather is just right for mixing and matching pieces from both spring and fall.  It’s a time where I can still wear my long camel coat, so rather than wearing a turtleneck, I can pair it with a Henley or I can wear my lighter weight leather jacket in lieu of my heavier one.  But most importantly, I was born in the spring!!!

* What made you start your blog?

I always wanted to be in an editorial position; however, I noticed that it was difficult to even obtain those types of positions.  Even if I had gotten in the door I would have been an assist doing basic duties.  Not to say that I was above being an assist, but I knew I needed a more creative outlet.  So I utilized the tools that I had in order to get my point across about menswear.  So it started from posting my #ootd on Instagram to what you see today.

* Do you feel that male bloggers get recognized the same as female bloggers?

Actually, yes.  Sometimes menswear gets more recognition than womens wear.  It even seems to be that the menswear community is more supportive of each other than in the womens wear community.  Men are more carefree and less competitive then women.  The science between men and women is unexplainable.


* What’s your signature look?

Definitely layering.  And in a close second is color blocking.  I really enjoy mixing the two trends.

* Where do you mostly shop?  How often do you shop?

I shop almost everywhere, but most of my clothes are from Club Monaco.  I am also heavy into thrift shopping.  I still have a lot of clothes from college and I receive clothes from clothing brands that I work with.  When I do shop, it’s mostly a once a month trip.  
  
    * If I looked in your closet, how would I find it arranged?

Ah!  Right now, it’s pretty embarrassing.  I’m in the process of rearranging my closet.  But, you find that I have tanks, shirts, t-shirts and long sleeves.  Then suits, jackets and coats.  My closet is very colorful.






* What’s the one wardrobe essential you can’t live without?

My leather jacket.  It’s like my fail safe piece. 

* What’s the best advice you've ever received?

“Just be a sponge” Absorb as much as you can. Don’t listen to respond, listen to understand.  

* What’s your favorite fashion magazine?

I don’t really have one.  When it comes to magazines, I read a lot of architectural magazines.  So my favorite magazine would be Architectural Digest.   

* What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?

I would say that people might be surprised that I’m an only child, but probably not! Ha! Ha!  I think most people would be surprised that I really like to be alone.  If you look at my IG feed or my blog, you might disagree, but I really appreciate my alone time.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my family and friends, but something I just really like that time to myself.   


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?

Outfit Details
Navy Blazer - St. Vincent de Paul Chamblee - $1.00
Polo Button-down Shirt - Park Ave Thrift Duluth - $1.75
High-waisted Navy/Burgandy Gingham Print Trousers - Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock - $1.50
Plaid Scarf - Forever21 - $12.00   
Shoes - Justfab

A Family That Styles Together...

Hi Stylenista's,

Happy Holidays!  Are you getting into the holiday spirit?  I'm starting to get there.  I'm just looking forward to not having to wake up as early.  I also have a few upcoming events that I'm a little excited about.  Any reason for me to "dress up" I'm all for it.  I get really charged when I'm thinking about what I'd like to wear for an event.

January 2015 will mark 6 years of married for me.  When my husband and I first met, we weren't fond of each other's style.  I thought he dressed like an old (dare I say it) pimp and he thought I was over the top.  However, after a little (a lot) of persuading, he has stepped out of the box and now you can't hardly tell him anything.  What's funny is that whenever we have a function to attend, you'd think we were preparing for some red carpet event.  To top it all off, our 5 year old son has inherited his parents style gene.

Outfit Details
Black Sweater - Thrifted
Black Skinny Jeans - Forever21
Tall Boots - JustFab

P.S. My husband is partially thrifted.  His blazer and button down shirt is thrifted. BTW, he styled his self.  My son's attire is from K&G menswear

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.
