I have never been much of a girly girl, granted I do love me an unhealthy amount of long necklaces, bangles, purses and flats. However, I am the last women you would see spending my weekends at the spa. I hate when others touch my feet- so we can nix pedicures. Sky high heels scare me. As a matter of fact, kitten heels scare me too- what if I have to run somewhere? I have yet to dabble in the world of red lipstick, nor does it interest me. I have had my share of push up bras but am not a fan of the chi chi lingerie. I am proud of my purse collection yet I wish women had more clothing with pockets. I like the look of a clutch but prefer a messenger bag. Tube tops are cute but give me a plain white t shirt over a strapless bra any day. Wearing pretty dressing for a nice night out makes me go “ugh” followed by a subsequent eye roll. Getting my hair done is like puling teeth (I prefer to wear it up, no fuss, in a bun). Let’s not even get started on my ears. They are not pierced and will remain that way. The reason for this rant is twofold. A-to explain how I am not a girly girl and to also set the foundation for my posting on…drumroll…drrrrrrrrrrrrr: Menswear!!!

It’s hot this season, but in all honesty, it’s hot every season. Currently, I am all about this oversize blazer business and every time I see a girl walk by in a casual pinstripe button up, I do a double take.
So it is only fitting for me to do an homage on a current favorite piece of mine. Ill dress em up for ya, tell you how to get the look for less and sprinkle in a bit of my Cheap vs. Steep. Enjoy!

Are we there yet? Colored Denim

About a year ago I did a posting on Fergie and Jessica Alba sporting some purple jeans. As with any trend that makes their first appearance, I wrinkled my nose and said “Hell no”.
And now, once again proving that humans are creatures of habit, they are growing on me. Having seen them on celebs, in stores and even on regular peeps, I have transitioned from “ok maybe on Halloween dressed as the year 1986” to “why not work my fall casual wardrobe around an orange pair”.

Some worthwhile accessories...

I received an email from someone asking me to check out this site of accessories. If you have a blog, you know you get bombarded with emails like these on a daily basis. I always check them out but rarely post anything. However, the products on this site were actually pretty nice. Very much my style. A tad expensive but worth a look. Check them out at Frey Wille. Enjoy!
