Recently Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at Kanye for his bizarre interview with BBC Radio.  The one in which the rapper discussed his creation of leather jogging pants, which Fendi rejected.  Kanye, I saw you wearing EnNoir leather jogging pants so I don't know what you're talking about.  Clearly you are not the first nor the last to come up with the leather jogging pants idea so get over it.  I too have leather jogging (vegan) pants from Urban Outfitters that cost me a mere $59, which I've rocked all year because they are super comfy.  Except this one time when I wore them on my trip to Philly in the middle of summer and walked from the train station to my friend's house about a mile away.  Not a good idea.  Clearly they're not meant for jogging.
Kanye's twitter rant

This weekend's OOTD: Sparkle & Fade Vegan Leather pull on pant, Max Studio ankle booties no longer available.  Similar style here.  Banana Republic statement necklace no longer available.  Alternate style here.  White high low top.  Ferragamo wristlet.

Roaring 20s

Thursday, September 26, 2013
Last Friday V and I attended a 20s inspired gala.  So much fun!  I pinned up my normally long hair into a faux bob.  I improvised the hair a little compared to the tutorial.  I wanted curls so I curled then teased and instead of tying it with a hair tie and pinning it, I just pinned the loose ends.  It was such a fun event! 
Whenever I think of the 20s I think of flappers, fringe, drop waists, short hair, head bands, cigarettes, gloves, thin eyebrows etc. etc. I knew exactly what to wear!
This Alice and Olivia was purchased 2 years ago at Neiman's and I wore it for NYE 2012.  The shoes were purchased in 2011 and the pearls are my mom's so no new clothes were purchased for this event which was super exciting! See, all my old clothes get a second chance.  I had to purchase the headband, but that was it. 
OOTD: Alice and Olivia beaded dress, no longer available.  Similar style here. Joan and David sling backs no longer available but similar style here.  Tasha 'Stop & Stare' head wrap found here.

Summer Lights

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

We spent Labor day weekend with the in laws in the DMV.  It was a nice relaxing weekend filled with exciting news, family and friends.  I think most people forget Fall doesn't start until September 22.  Most associate it with labor day.  Anyway, I'm not here to judge.  I spent the weekend wearing light hues and whites.  It was so hot!

Pictures were taken at the National Harbor.

OOTD: BCBG dress no longer available but similar style here.  Fendi Espadrilles  Hermes Vintage Kelly watch.  Oliver Peoples Rayford Aviators (I purchased mine 75% off at Last Call .  Last season design. Not available online.)

OOTD 2: BCBG white lace top no longer available.  Years old.  Similar style here.  Jeans rag & bone. Fendi Espadrilles
