I'm soooooo fancy.....
Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to dress to impress, but you cannot find that perfect outfit that will give you the confidence and comfort that you need?
My rule of thumb is to go for the classics: some neutral trousers, a cute blouse and some pointed-toe heels. Once you have this down you can mix and match and add some colorful prints. 

One of my goals in life is to create business/interview wear that is not basic. How do you style business attire?  

Business wear is very easy to style, but hard to find. I am on the curvier side of life and I have realized that this is where you SHOULD invest in classic pieces. I understand that at the moment a $100 pair of trouser will carve a hole in your wallet, but they will literally become your go to piece. You can wear the trousers with a blouse, with a full suit (blazer) or with a sequin top for a night out. 

If you are on the shorter side, the goal for any outfit should be to elongate your figure. This is where fit and the shoes come in. If you are wearing something that is not fitted properly you will be able to tell. Business clothes isn't like your normal style; you cannot wear something loose fitting and call it grunge or bohemian. There is not a lot of room for experimentation (which I find annoying). The slight heel and the pointed toe will give you the illusion of a taller figure. 

My #1 piece of advice is to feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Feeling comfortable translates into confidence and that is never a bad thing. Always feel good in what you are wearing, express personal style no matter what is trending and be YOU!

Gingham style

Hi Friends!!!!

Do y'all ever want to pull off a "sporty" look,  but then realize that you do not have any gym in you?!! Thats me. I love and envy how people can pull off such an effortless look. Here is how you can too! Well at least you can give it a try.

Its been almost 2 weeks and I feel that I am not following a blogging schedule. I am still not sure which day out of the week that I should choose. Any help? Which days are better for you? Comment below.

Yes, this is my attempt at the "sporty" look. I paired this wonderful shirt with a plaid/gingham printed top. I tried to tough up the look by adding a metallic chain and some worn-in Converse. Did I succeed? (Once my friend commented that my style was girly and I was almost offended for some strange reason, but even though I feel tough and edgey I understand how people can interpret this.) Now I realize that it is fairy girly, which is not what I was going for. This skirt can vary depending in your interpretation. A school girl? A tennis player? I guess cheerleaders and tennis players count as athletes right? Of course they do.

Lately I have been thrifting as much as possible. Like most conscience shopoholics, I carefully invest in my wardrobe. There are some pieces like this awesome skirt that can easily be forgotten after a just a season. In these cases, I thrift for the items that might not make it after a couple of years. I mean a $3 skirt never hurt anybody!!

Technically this whole outfit is thrifted, down to the cute back pack (except the Converse and accessories). I spent about $7. You can't beat that!
