Fall + Winter = Boots!

October 28, 2015

The best thing about Fall/Winter is boots. Today I wore my Cole Haan “Cooper Square” wingtip oxford boots. I don’t wear these a lot when it actually gets to snow because I live in a place where we get tons of snow that they then sand or salt to clear, and it could easily ruin the boot. But, snow is hopefully a ways off so I am making the most of it for fashion while I can and wearing all my good boots now!

Serving Bob Mackie Realness

October 17, 2015

I’m gonna wear this Bob Mackie gown to go get me a gallon of milk, some sunflower seeds and a loaf of bread. And ya’ll will deal. This photo is from the recent exhibit “Inspiring Beauty” about the Ebony Fashion Fair. I saw it in Milwaukee but it is traveling all around the country. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend the show. It’s phenomenal and a great fashion history lesson.

Foot sprain/spur means I’m stuck in a surgical shoe for a little while. Ugh. Never fear, I had to get out a glue gun, sequins, and some pearls for a make it work moment. We always gotta find a way to say a little something for fashion, dear hearts. *cackles*

Gardenias are a total Glamourtunist!

April 23, 2015

Gardenias are a total Glamourtunist. They’re my favorite flower. So elegant, sophisticated, and refined. Jazz singer Billie Holiday, and the designers Coco Chanel and Patrick Kelly also loved gardenias. What flower do you most love or associate with fashion and style?

Inspiration: Vintage Helmut Lang Jeans

April 23, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 7.52.51 AMOne day I’ll own and slay life in a pair of Helmut Lang jeans just like this! Werk! I want the vintage kind. By vintage I mean from the 90s.  I remember being a teenager and thinking that Helmut Lang Jeans were the best thing ever, so that’s my obsession with one from that era. And also, the thought of the 90s as vintage. Ugh. Way to feel ancient!

Fave necklace & “Balenciagaaaaa!”

Wearing one of my favorite pieces of jewelry today. A mixed metal necklace with flat stones. The stones all look like rose quartz and moonstones. I’m going to pair it with my Balenciaga “work” bag (which one of my friends calls my “WERQ!” bag — I love that!) and then off to class I go. Whenever I wear it I pull it out of the closet and shout as did the effortlessly elegant Myrtle Snow in “American Horror Story: Coven,” “BALENCIAGAAAAA!” It cracks me up every time.
