5 Ways To Rock A Boyfriend Blazer.

Boyfriend blazers go with almost everything but since they are a bit baggy it is important to have something fitted or structured in your outfit to avoid looking as if you are swimming in your clothes.

So You Are Saying You Want Me To Shop At Target? For Clothes?

Home Of The Perfect Fashion Basics? Really? Trust Me I Am As Confused As You.

So my fashion life revolves around 3 things…A- Finding and buying basic, timeless pieces in black. 2- Finding and buying unique, chunky and at times masculine accessories and D-Finding and buying the highest and in my opinion, sickest, vegan heels I can locate on this fine planet.

I shop in someway, everyday of my life. I do not necessarily buy stuff everyday, I just am constantly looking for the things I need. The timeless things, the things that are unique to myself and things I just know I cannot do without. Once I find a basic I need, that fits, I buy at least 2 in black and then look for one in white or gray. Maybe a bright pink or something if it is the season for that.

Since I do shop so much I try on lots of stuff in every single price range and let me tell you that just because a basic tank dress is $200 does not mean $hit. For Real. It makes me so pissed to cuz lots of the time I will order it on-line, get it, be like ‘WTF, $200 for this cheap material, ill-fitting piece of garbage?’ Thanks but no thanks. So I return it. Then I will be somewhere like say, Target, stocking up on body lotion and toothpaste and I will skip through the woman’s clothing section. And I find what I am looking for. Time and time again.

I have now realized this is not coincidence. I found my long black tank dresses there and bought 3 for $20 each, this was after I tried on Alexander Wang ones that were over $200. I found my black baggy off the shoulder T-Shirt there and bought 3 on sale for $11 each. This is after I paid $50 for one at Express and never wear it cuz the Target ones fit better. Yesterday I went to get body lotion and boom, I find the perfect short, tight tank dress for $20 and buy 3, after I spent over $200 on a Citizens Of Humanity one I have never worn even though I bought it last year. Full price.

Last week while I was in ‘color for wardrobe planning’, my teacher was talking about fit and quality of clothing and she was talking about good quality clothing at a low price point. She brought up Target right away. Her exact words were ‘Every time I walk into Target I am blown away, Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you cannot get quality clothes at a low price point at Target.’ I had to chuckle cuz I was wearing my baggy black off the shoulder T-Shirt from Target that class. My next class I ended up getting called out for my outfit, my teacher loved it. It was the long black tank dress I got from Target accessorized to the tilt.

So the moral of this rant is… If shopping at Target is not only good enough for, but recommended by the teachers at the Fashion Institute of Technology (aka the infamous F.I.T. in Manhattan) then maybe you should take a look 😉


Kill ‘Em With Your Spiked Platform Pumps.

Since I am obsessed with anything spiked or chained it was a given that I had to own these shoes. The unfortunate part was the first time around every website sold out with the quickness. A couple of places have  restocked so I ordered mine and I suggest you get yours. These heels are KILLER. They are very well constructed and they just look fly. The spikes are thick and strong, they will not fall out. The shoe is comfortable, and if you want to make it even better throw in an insole.

This Is The Black And Silver Option.

5 Off The Shoulder Tops.

Ok so finding actual off the shoulder tops can be damn near impossible. In fact many off the shoulder tops you see people wearing are not off the shoulder tops at all, they are just modified  t-shirts a size or two too big. With that said here are 5 shirts that  can easily be made into an off the shoulder top if you buy it a size bigger.  The key is to look for a wide neck line that will still look decent when it’s modified. Be sure the shirt is big enough to achieve this look you do not want it to be tight at all or else you will deal with pulling in odd places. This is trial all trial and error, Good Luck!!!
