MY STYLE FIX

LEATHER SHORTS & CHIFFON BLOUSE 
Happy Tuesday!So,I don't know if you checked the Fancy Fix tab on my page, but that's where I showcase certain items that I'm currently craving, but for the most part realistically cannot afford due to the fact that I choose housing over high priced and sometimes overpriced items. To me, there's something really off putting about being homeless don't you think?! I mean the constant threat of being shanked by a naked psychopath while you lay exposed to the mercy of whatever weather whim mother nature has in store, just doesn't do it for me. Call me crazy but, I never wanna be shanked, EVER. It just doesn't seem like a good time. So, I stick to purchasing things that I can afford, so that I can maintain my shelter.
If you're into being homeless (to each his own) and a good ole shanking gets you going, then paying an arm and a leg for anything fashion related may seem like an awesome idea, but for me I can only pine over and admire such things. Luckily, until the proverbial check clears, I found the perfect niche for all my fantasy fixes on my blog. My latest fixation is the Marc By Marc Jacobs Calf Dora Sneaker . I personally think it's the most, so I had to post it, and pin it to my Pinterest page (I really hope that you're not scratching your head wondering what that is). I just knew it would be repinned. I mean did you see them?! Instant love at first sight! I'm swooning as I'm typing, and yes, I'm a multitasker if you must know. I can swoon and type with the best of them, but I digress.
Well, my hunch was right and the sneaker was repinned, but to a fashion board called something to the effect of "bitch did you lose your mind". I could hardly believe it! I LOVE those sneakers, and I'm not even a sneaker type of girl. However, fashion is like that. One man's treasure is another man's, I threw up a little in my mouth just at the site of that monstrosity. Fashion is subjective to say the least. Initially, I was offended, but I get it. We all have different taste or sense of style.
As I got dressed today pairing these faux leather shorts, chiffon blouse, cropped trench coat, and flats, I thought about that. I know that you're going to love some of my pairing and others are gonna make you wanna spit on your pc in utter disgust (don't do that btw, that's nasty). Even me, sometimes, after I leave the house I'm like WTF was I thinking, but hopefully more times than not you have the former experience or you're inspired to tweak whatever you see and make it your own.  
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by <3.

  1. YEP... To each their own. I feel the same way sometimes because alot of my outfits comes out better when I didnt put much thought to it then when I actually try to think & put an outfit together; I walk back to my house like whhhhat was I THINKING?! Lol, I guess its all about rockin it with confidence. I was looking for leather shorts and settled for a thrifted leather skirt which I hope to make a "good" outfit post on.

    1. I know, it's that over thinking it thing! Btw, a leather skirt sounds fab! I actually got my shorts from forever21 a while ago. I remember how ridiculously hard it was to find those shorts. Most places were sold out. It was a miracle I landed these at all. I had the same issue with the sunnies too, but eventually I found those at Target and there were other colors too! I'm so glad you like them <3

  2. Perfect get up! Love that shirt - it just screams spring! The overcoat is excellent for the weather right now and I love how it compliments the outfit - fashion rather than function (or a little of both). The accessories really pop! Fabulous :) - CC

    1. Thanks CC!! You're so right! The weather (cool mornings, warm days, chilly nights) can be a little tricky right now. Having a light coat definitely helps with the transitional period. A cute one is just an added bonus:) Thanks for stopping by <3

  6. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think about
    if you added some great visuals or videos to give
    your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
    but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one
    of the greatest in its field. Amazing blog!
