I know. Dumbest title ever for a post, EVER! But at least you can give me create for self-actualization. LOL! I hope everyone’s weekend was awesome. My apologies for the late post. When I got back to Dallas on Sunday all I wanted to do was relax. That is exactly what I did. My weekend with S was jam packed. I’m sure this weekend when she comes up here for Texas/OU Weekend won’t be any different.
On with the show!
This fashion photographer’s blog from GQ as QUICKLY become one of my FAVORITE fashion stops. He always features nice, clean, and colorful lines. Yes, his blog is more geared to men, but he does know how to appreciate the female fashion form. Case in point, exhibit A. Typically, I wouldn’t like this leather “trend” because it reminds me too much of the Matrix, however I have to give credit where credit is due. Not only does her outfit look good but it was enhanced by the way she accessorized it, and even the attitude of her hair. This is why she and he get top stop for this week.

What’s a week without BB on the list? Again, with the nice clean lines. Blazers that fit your form perfectly make you look so put together quickly. That scarf adds drama to what could be just a normal outfit. How else is feeling the Zara pants?
This may not be the most flattering photo of her, but it’s all about the fashion right here! Now, will someone tell me if the collar thing is… well… still a thing?… Nonetheless I’m really loving the Southwest vibe of this dress that’s brought out by the oversized double buckled belt. Though I could never pull of Christina Aguilara red lips, she does it perfectly fine for my taste.
04: In her Stilettos
If there is one wardrobe I could raid in the bloggers universe it would be Diya’s. She knows how to put together some of the most basic pieces and having you look like an Elle editorial. This is how you look fashionable to work. I know a lot of you guys can relate to this… being able to look fun, serious, and approachable can be difficult at sometimes. Diya somehow knows how to achieve this balance with ease. I hope to achieve a similar balance in my work attire.
05: Girl with Curves
Next week I’m instituting color in everything I wear. Tanesha has inspired me based on this look alone. First, let me state that Tanesha proves that even bigger girls can have fun too. I hate when some bigger girls don’t dress as well because they feel they are too big. I know MANY of bigger girls that know how to freakin’ rock it! No excuses.
I really want to pair of high waisted pants in my arsenal. I like the clean lines they give off. Especially when you pair the pants with a great work blouse, as shown above. This is another great example of a fun look one could wear to work. She adds additional texture and style with the stringed necklace and leopard print heels.
06: Addicted to Chic
Yes, you guys know I’m a t-shirt, jeans, heels, clutch kinda girl. She embodies my uniform graciously.
07: After Dark
So I’m guessing pants are optional this Fall??? No! I am just playing! I am a fan of all things knit. Perhaps it’s because all the sweaters my father every bought me were cable knight or the fact that my mother taught me how to crochet. I don’t know what it is, but is spikes some childhood memories that make me adore this look… with pants of course.
Actually, some leather legging would have made this outfit even better… and her more warm.
08: Pink Horror Show
T-shirts and blazers go together like bread and butter. At least in my humble opinion. I just love how a blazer makes everything just that much more fancier (excuse the grammar). A blazer can also make you look like an instant hipster, so to avoid that I suggest wearing statement earrings and your hair in another way other than a messy ironic bun. Cuz you guys know how hipsters love the ironic.
09: Neon Blush
The only thing I really like about Fall and Winter is the beanie. I just HEART wearing beanies. I would have never thought about putting all these items together, but for her, they worked perfectly. Now, I’m not sure if they jacket she’s wearing is considered tweed or not, but I love the craftsmanship of it. Zara is really proving to be a force this season. Hopefully these next couple of weeks will allow me at least a little liberty of stopping in a store to check out their full collection for my own eyes. And yes… I LOVE her shoes!
