Polka Dots

When In Doubt Just Add A Blazer

Melodie Stewart, Atlanta Stylist, Top Atlanta Blogger

You guys are going to get sick and tired of me preaching about blazers and you know what? I don’t even care! They are the #1 staple item in my wardrobe. And if you haven’t noticed yet you soon will!

I got this dress a few months ago and wanted to get at least one more wear out of it before the last bit of spring weather leaves. So what did I do? I added a blazer. I mean you can wear them with almost anything, anytime. In my opinion, a blazer makes getting dressed so much easier.

Below are a few styles you can pair with a blazer:

  • Jeans + Tee

  • LBD (little black dress)

  • Summer dress + boots

  • Blouse + Trousers

  • Print skirt + Tee + Heels

  • Jeans or skirt or dress + sneakers

Now go forth and dress cute in a blazer!!!!

Polka Dots + Stripes / Holiday Lookbook - Style 5

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta wardrobe stylist

Happy Friday style lovers, we made it!  But today is also shopping day and by shopping day, I mean this is my first and last day gift shopping.  This year, Christmas snuck up on me, since I became a first time homeowner less than two months ago.  

If you're a veteran supporter or a newbie, you already know that black and white is my absolute fave color combo.  It's a timeless trend and is overwhelmingly cute when organized into logical stripes, grids or circles.  I was on a Thrifting Atlanta bus tour when I scored this black and white dotted midiskirt, the top was picked up separately, but doesn't it match perfectly?  And just because I'm extra I went with stripped pumps and this mixed print Aldo clutch.

'Real Style Is Never Right Or Wrong, 

It's A Matter Of Being Yourself On Purpose.'

Why do we allow society's standards of what looks good to determine how we express ourselves through style?  Just because I'm petite (okay small) doesn't mean that all my clothes have to be tight and/or short.  And just because you may be pleasantly plump doesn't mean you have to dress like Mother Teresa either.  One thing to keep in mind, you should dress for your shape instead of your size. 

Ergo the days where we actually follow "style rules".  Take the style trend monochrome, this trend can be styled by anybody in any number of ways.  Black and white is my all time favorite color combo.  And when mixed together your look can be simple and chic or elaborate and bold.  Today we're bring 3 different variations of this fun trend.

All Mixed UP!

Hi Stylenista's,

There's a certain classicness (is that a word?) to black and white.  Subconsciously, I tend to lean more towards the black/white combo.  I like the versatility that this color combo has.  One of my favorite style enthusiast's, who I deem the queen of black and white, is Janelle Monae.  She can wear the heck out of an black and white outfit.

Following me you see I'm a huge fan of prints.  Outside of polka dot's, window pane print has become my fave.  As an avid thrifter, my primary goal was to find them for less than $5.00.  Well, that didn't happen.  While out and about with my boo, I walked into the store and there they were; front and center.  I felt like a kid on Christmas.  They were not the $5 that I was hoping for, BUT I got want I wanted.

Outfit Details
Polka-dot button down - Thrifted - < $2.00
Window pane print pants - Old Navy - $35.00
Floral print tie - Thrifted - < $1.50







Playful in Pink

Hi there Stylenista's

I hope you're having a great week.  Yesterday was my birthday and the only thing I really wanted was to just chill and go see Avengers: age of Ultron.   By the way, it was Ggggrrrreeeeaaaatttttt!!!!

I got this skirt earlier this year while on the Thrifting Atlanta bus tour and I couldn't wait til the weather warmed up to wear it.  The colors in this skirt are bountiful, while the number of styling options are plenty.  I love thrifting multi-functional pieces.  To be honest with you, it really doesn't take a lot for me to pull together a look.  If something catches my attention, I already know that I can work with it.  Just to give you a little history behind this shirt... On a bus tour no doubt, an attendee found the shirt, tried it on and it didn't fit, it went through 3 other ladies before choosing me to don it.  I Love THRIFTING!!!


Outfit Details
Pink pussybow blouse (F21) - Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock - $1.75
Vintage pleated skirt - Ecologie Consignment and Vintage - $10.00
Shoes - Shoedazzle
Belt - Thrifted - < $1.00







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.

Outfit Details
Dress - Goodwill - $7.00
Shoes - Charlotte Russe - ?
Fasinator Hat - Mall Boutique - $5.00










Dots & Prints

Hey there Stylenista's

Happy Wednesday!  One more day and then it's Friday.

I'm not sure why, but I'm sooo looking forward to this fall season.  Maybe it's because I have a few pieces that I've been really anxious to wear (shrugs shoulders).  Anywho...

From all of my previous post, you should know that I really love mixing prints.  Today is no different.  What prints have you mixed together?

Outfit Details
Express Polka Dot Blazer - Gifted - Free for me
Black Forever21 tank - $1.90
Belt - Body Central - $1.90
Animal Print Skirt - Park Ave Thrift Duluth - 2.00
Shoes - ?













Natural Chic

Hey there Stylenista's!

I call this look natural chic.... I have been natural for over 2 years and I LOVE it.  I wish I would have done it earlier.  I didn't grow up wearing makeup and I never learned how to apply it so I don't wear.  I'm okay with my natural beauty.

Outfit Details:

Top - Thrifted - $1.00
Skirt - Thrifted - $2.00
Shoes - Plato's Closet - $10
Belt - Thrifted - .50
Accessory's - B&R Thrift Store - $1.50/ set
