Shades Of Grey

September 24, 2010 9:45 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I love a monochromatic look!  The key to pulling it off, is by doing different shades of the same color.  It is best to use neutrals like grey and brown.  An all yellow ensemble will just make you look like a banana...or Big Bird!

This outfit is all kinds of comfortable!  Super soft pants...kind of sweatpant-like, a slouchy tee, and a tailored boyfriend blazer that pulls it all together.  I am LITERALLY obsessed with slouchy sweat-like pants.  They are the best thing EVER!  Once you try them, there is no turning back!

Ahhh, nothing I love more than a deep pocket I can sink my hands into!

I usually like to be drenched in accessories, but I wanted to stay with the simplistic nature of the outfit.  This Y shaped chain necklace is simple but adds a little pizzazz!  Sometimes, less CAN be more!  Sometimes... :)

Grandpa Pants

September 3, 2010 12:53 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

These pants are extremely old man like!  It was a challenge to make them look cute, even though I really really like them.  In theory, they are extremely unflattering...pleated and tapered!  Sounds awful!  But paired with the right things, can look really chic and cool!

A tapered leg looks terrible on me, so I rolled them up to create a more flattering sillhouette.  If you are going to wear anything oversized (i.e. boyfriend jeans, blazer, t-shirt), make sure that everything else is well fitting.  Otherwise you might end up looking like a bag lady...or an Olsen twin haha.

This necklace pretty much rocks my world!  It jingles when I move; it's like Christmas came early!  I could not refrain from skipping down the sidewalk just to hear the jingle jangle.  I just could not control myself...I could not.

Im Blue Da Ba Dee Da Ba Di...

I’m blue da ba di da ba di…Anyone remember that song?  Or am I the only one?  It was pretty awesome and weird all at the same time!  Kind of like this outfit!

If there were ever a pair of pants to make me feel happy, these would be the ones.  I cannot begin to explain how comfortable they are.  It's like pajama pants for day time!  They make my legs have a party, they are so soft!  I just might do a little jig...in celebration of my new pants!  Don't worry, I am only joking.  I would not traumatize you that way.  There will be no pictures of me getting my boogie on...EVER.

Even though I could talk about these pants all day, we must move on.  This (fake) leather jacket I have been dying to wear, but the heat has prevented me.  In the spring I had searched far and wide for a short sleeved leather jacket and found it at Burlington Coat Factory.  I love the little ruffle sleeves...makes it a little less biker chick.

I don't know what we did before all these amazing shoes started popping up everywhere.  Gladiator sandals, studded heels, shoe booties!  They hardly even make simple, plain shoes anymore.  The statement shoe is definitely a work of art!  I have always been a shoe girl.  When I was about 5 years old my mom took me to the swap meet.  I fell in love with these gold sandals (I think they made them to play dress up) that were bejeweled to the nines!  I insisted on wearing those things everywhere!  So you see, some things never change!

Biker jacket + lace = totally amazing!  When I saw it I thought… "How interesting!  I must have it!"  It's tough yet so incredibly girlie!  I'm extremely into this army green color at the moment.  It's going to be really big for the fall season, but I like to get started early.  These pants were actually wide leg linen trousers.  I tailored them myself to make them taper at the bottom so I could roll them up.  Remember, you don't always have to wear the article of clothing the way it was meant to be worn.  You can be creative and change it up.  If a dress comes with a matching belt...switch the belt with a different one.  Want to make that black cardigan more special?  Change the plain buttons for some military style buttons.  One of the most fun aisles at the craft store is the button aisle!  They carry every kind of button you can imagine!  Even if you don't sew, this is a fairly easy task.  But if you must, take it to a tailor.  They can be your best friend when it comes to clothes!

This jacket is a statement all by itself, so no statement jewelry needed.  I just added a simple green necklace and metallic heels.  Now that we are dwindling down to the end of summer, it is a good idea to purchase items that transition easily to fall.  That way you don't have to wait eight months to wear it again!  It is still ridiculously hot where I live, so lightweight fabric is completely necessary.  It is my color palette that has changed.  Long gone is my desire to buy bright summery dresses.  It has been replaced by more muted tones like green, grey and brown.  I suspect it is because I just want summer to end already so I can wear my knee high boots, tights and military blazers.  Fall style is just so much fun!  I can't wait to show you!

Feathers and Crystals and Gladiator Heels Oh My!

Grey paired with a bright color is my fav!  So chic!  There are so many beautiful, unexpected color combinations that you can wear with it!  Pink, purple, yellow, brown...the list goes on!  Since it is a neutral, you can wear almost anything with it…it's like a blank canvas.  I chose these dark grey cargo/hammer pants with a dark grey boyfriend tee.  Wearing the same color on top and bottom is a great way to lengthen you’re body and leg line.  Especially if you have short legs like me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely ADORE this lightweight cardigan from Charlotte Russe.  I don't normally shop there, but it seems like they are revamping (has nothing to do with vampires you Twilight lovers, haha) their style to be a little more fashion forward.  Me likey!  As for the necklace, it just goes with EVERYTHING!  It's my new obsession, even though I believe I've already met my quota of obsessions this month.  Pairing feathers with crystals...pure genius!  The bracelet is a little random, but it is green and my wrist told me it felt naked.  I don't listen to the rule that says "remove one accessory before you leave your house" so you won't be over accessorized.  In fact, I do the opposite!  Add one!  The more the merrier!
