The greatest music of all time was recorded in the 70s – we are talking Zeppelin, Journey, Foreigner, Pink Floyd, I could go on… Needless to say the style is rad too. I am really digging the 70s jams going on in the fashion world right now. Ever since Nicole Richie rocked her boho style post “Simple Life,” I was hooked. These bell bottoms were an awesome find in Hawaii. I really started with these “bad boys” (fit for the Brady Bunch) as a base for this look. This look is also perfect for… you guessed it… FESTIVAL season! Even if you’re not throwing down a down payment on a Ford Focus to listen to jams in a dustbowl with the #Jenners, rock out to some chill tunes on your iPod and bust out some flares – you’ll feel Groovy.

Little know this fun fact about yours truly, but I was a tomboy growing up. I was a knee-skinning, boy clothes wearing, soccer playing chick. All my friend were boys – girls were so drama drama. I still standby this, although I like my blush colors and designer bags. I, obviously, am in love with the sports luxe. Anytime I can sport my Saint Laurent and adidas in the same look, I am a happy recovered tomboy.

I think men’s wear on women was cool, is cool, and always will be cool. I love a shirt dress because there is something effortlessly chic about it. You literally just throw it on! I like the bowler hat because it adds to the menswear theme and I feel like Charlie Chaplin, or Winston Churchill #winwin. These lacey biker shorts add some grunge along with the cherry Docs. This ensemble is ideal for a lazy weekend. Cheers!

A Fool for Tulle

I have been wanting a tulle skirt for eons! I couldn’t find one in stores, so I made one! That’s right, this girl can sew (with the help of Gammie of course). You have know idea how rewarding it is to create something with your own hands and wear it! I feel like Stella freaking McCartney. I like to rock girly pieces like a tulle skirt with leather, to toughen it up a little. Edgy-girlie ensembles are always cool and fun to wear. I had to add a pop of color and these Ted Baker hot pink pumps (w/ stunning rose gold heels) – which are my life! And of course I needed a bold lip. This mac color is so beautiful it makes me pee! Lastly, I am carrying my new muted lavender clutch from my wonderful friend, Donielle. It’s just enough sparkle with the necklace to finish off this very NYE appropro look, or really any party look. Happy New Year! Make a resolution to dress up this year! Even if you don’t have an occasion because you always feel better when you look good.

I am allergic to cats, but boy do I love Charlotte Olympia kitty flats. Charlotte Olympia, you sure know how to make feet swoon. These “Sunkissed Kitty flats” were the black friday score of the century. These bad boys retail for nearly $700, I got them 90% off at Nordy’s – at 3pm. They were the only CO shoes in the store. In my size. It was providence. I think a proper cat lady should always have a furry cardi or overcoat. This multi-color, or calico, if you will (*pun*), does the job! On another note, how Risky Business is this shirt dress?! May the new year bring you great deals on shoes and other goodies!

What’s a better excuse to wear sequins than the start of the holiday season!? I feel like a Golden Girl –  I am so happy to sparkle like this. I think it’s hard to not look moderately glamorous with a full midi skirt and a little sparkle. And how chic is this little red Chanel dupe!? 25 bucks y’all! I am also really enjoying this half-up topknot! Try it out for Christmas parties. Cheers!

C’est bon! A born worrier, I am constantly reminding myself, “it’s all good.” I am really keen on French typography as well so this shirt is a win win. Also, this sweater – softest cardi in the world. If you like your personal space though, I would not recommend it. People cannot help but pet you like a cat. I really like the mix of whites in this ensemble. The cream cardigan offset by the clean and crisp white of the tee is quite cool. I also think the juxtaposition of the structured letters in the tee shirt with the fuzzy and soft texture of the sweater is quite smart.
