Breaking the "Rules"

October 29, 2018

Two blogs in one month?  Say what? Well, I felt like I had to blog about my looks the last two weekends because I did the social media unthinkable (insert chuckle), and wore the same pieces over again. The best part, I'm even posting the pictures. *Gasp* I know I harp on this a lot, because I want people to see that you can have fun playing in your own closet and wearing pieces you may already own. I always ask clients to send me pictures of pieces that they currently own to see if we could utilize anything for a new look. I really think that sometimes all you need is a fresh eye. When I'm bored with my closet I always snap pictures and send to my friend who makes me try on things I haven't worn in a while; so refreshing. Also, with the holidays approaching I will be spending money on lots of other things, so I have to get creative in my own closet with things I already own.  If you haven't booked a consultation with me yet, don't wait.  I can definitely help you look great for all the upcoming holiday parties.  

 

I first wore this velvet skirt to a birthday dinner for my friend Halli. It was a cold night, so I decided that I wanted to rock my velvet thigh high boots. My bomber jacket is a closet staple that I've had for years. Outerwear is definitely something that you can invest in especially if you live in a cooler climate during the fall and winter months. I decided to pair the varsity jacket with my nike bodysuit. I had a lot of people ask me about the nike bodysuit, so here's the truth. It rises up and the fit is funky, definitely has to be worn with something high waist. I can't say I would buy another. I am going to take it to the alterations and see if they can adjust where it snaps.  

 

 

Next up was my friend Brittany's wedding.  I have never been to a fall wedding so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of the weather.  I decided to where the same velvet skirt because it quickly became a favorite after the first wear.  Now about this fabulous lace bodysuit.  I found this bodysuit that I loved, but the price I just couldn't justify.  I watched it for two weeks and of course no change in price.  So I searched, waited, and searched some more.  Nothing was catching my eye like this lace bodysuit.  I gave the internet one last search, and there it was.  T.J. Maxx online, for $37.00, YEP!  I definitely hit my happy dance on that one. Over 70 % off the original price, so it was definitely worth the wait.  My accessories for this look included a target scarf and clutch.  Yes, Target.  No shame in my Target loving game.  Shoes, velvet Louboutin.  Investment piece, but they always make a statement.  Do they hurt?  YES! Are they fly?  YES!  When it comes to Louboutin I think everyone has to decide for themselves.  I love that shoe, so the pain is worth it for a few hours.   

 

 

 

 

Lastly, but most recently, I attended another birthday dinner.  If you can't tell, my friends and I like to eat.  This time around I rocked the lace bodysuit with a pair of my favorite Levis.  When I say FAVORITE, I mean it.  I love the classic straight leg on this 100% cotton jean.  With Levis, they all fit differently, it really takes going into a store and trying on several pairs to find the right fit.  As I have stated before, I don't really love jeans with lots of elastane.  Just my personal preference on the look.  But I'm also someone who doesn't like leggings unless I'm working out or running errands.  I left leggings in college with Uggs.  *Chuckles*  Okay I can think of one pair of leggings that I would wear out as an outfit.  Literally one. Completed this look with a Target bag, Zara jacket (outerwear is life), and Louis Vuitton sock boots.  Can you tell how much I love to mix highs and lows?
