Funny Pins

For the first two years of college, I lived with a lovely lady, who loved to dress with a jean jacket that had funny little pins afixed to it. I feel like people think pins can be awkward and hard to wear. I usually seen them on an accessary like a backpack or a carrier bag. However, I learned from my roommate that you can put them on anything. 

I think pins look the best on demin because when you want to take them off and you can’t see the pin hole versus placing a pin on a fabric that wasn’t so sturdy. I like pins. They are a small accessory that is a talking point and it can give other people an insight into you’re personality.

THE DRESS THAT KATE MOSS WORE AT THE CLOSING CEREMONY LONDON 2012

White Pants

If you have seen the first Transformers movie, then you will remember a very long action scene in that movie where Megan Fox is wearing white pants that don’t get dirty until the very end of the movie. White pants are a clothing item that pops. However, I am not an owner of white pants because I live in the constant fear of them getting dirty or worse, stained. I’m not telling you not to wear white pants, but to be careful when wearing them. They look good on anyone, except when they are dirty.

Combat Boots

I love, love, love combat boots or Doc Martins. So chic and they give a different kind of look to what you’re wearing. I love wearing mine with some leggings or skinny jeans. They give your outfit such a sharp look, even when you want to look laid back. I recommend that everyone should get their hands on a pair of these. You can even wear them during summer time with some shorts.

The V-Neck

It is so simple to just throw on a v-neck with some leggings and some nice jeans. I love to wear v-necks on any occasion. So simple and so effortless. I have a lot of v-necks and I have them in different colors. They are a lot better to wear than a t-shirt that doesn’t breath. 

Canadian Tuxedo

I can dig the denim on the demin look, know as the Canadian Tuxedo to most. My roommate for the past two years pulled off the look real well. I personally think that the denim should be two different shades when wearing some sort of top and bottom. However, the two shades shouldn’t be on two completely spectrums. For example, bleached and faded and a dark wash. That’s just not happening. They can be slightly different where it just works but not completely. The Mexican Vogue cover above is too matchy, matchy for my likely but I can see it working. The Canadian Tuxedo is something that you can play around with to find the right combination of denim on denim.

Tank tops and Scraves

Today it was over 105 degrees in my current place of residence. This is what I saw: people wearing tank tops with scraves. I don’t understand. It’s hot and sticky outside and you’re wearing what seems to be an item that is meant to keep you warm. However, some people wear scarves for fashion as well, as an accessory. I’m not saying this is a bad look, I’m saying what are you doing when it’s over 105 degrees outside. I just don’t get it.

High Low Dress

All I want in the world right now is one of these dresses. I think they are so simple and chic. Short in the front, long in the back and perfect for summer time.

Bowties

Yes, do it. It looks hot and can give a clean look to the outfit. Just make sure it matches or something.

Fox Tail Look

Can someone explain the fox tail look to me? I want to comment on it but I don’t really understand the point…
