FANCY FIX

TOP SHOP TULLE PROM DRESS
Wowza, this dress has made me so nostalgic! It definitely brings back memories of my prom. Back then,I went for a dress that was short, and if truth be told a little slutty. Forgive me, I was young and misguided. Anywho, it was lime green with cut outs that left very little to the imagination of my date. Aside from my vajayjay practically hanging out, in hindsight it was a fashion don't. However, at the time and even now I have a serious aversion to cinderalla esque puff. I cringed at the thought of that princessy ballgown look, so instead I went for street walker. Had this adorable little number with just the right amount of puffiness been around during what seems like ions ago, I may have went in a way more stylish direction. It's ridiculously cute, with just enough of that girly charm coupled with some serious sexiness.That's exactly what I needed then, and I can still use that now. I'm in need of a fix!   

MY STYLE FIX: PASTEL MAXI PLEATS

Happy Monday! I'm so glad that this week is off to a good start. One of my looks was chosen by FabSugar as part of "Looks of the Week". In my world that's pretty awesome especially considering the way last week ended. Wednesday night I had a freak accident that landed me in the emergency room with what some would refer to as a knot, while you can clearly see that it's a small unicorn horn on the side of my head (Bug Eyes). 
I mean, if I wasn't one step away from a circus freak show already, with my larger than average noggin,with this little gem, I'm sure to be a shoo-in. Possibly even the main attraction akin to the bearded lady. Thank God for bangs! I can hide my new accessory, and evade detection from circus scouts, but that's the least of my problems.         
Not only did I acquire a ghastly knot, but I also have a concussion that leaves me battling bouts of headaches and serious nausea. Believe me, it hasn't been a picnic, but I'd rather that than the bright light, which btw I didn't see which leads me to believe that those confessions to Father Joseph were for naught. I must've broken one too many commandments for absolution, because all I saw was darkness, and I'm certain Lucifer, you know the prince of darkness himself would've made an appearance to personally escort me to my final destination had I not woken up.  


Fortunately, it wasn't my time, and I live to blog another day albeit a little banged up. Today, I opted to pair my motorcycle jacket with a pleated skirt, and a tee. Btw, between you and me, I think it's no accident that I chose to wear this flowy celestial ensemble. Maybe, just maybe, the Big Guy will get the hint and leave the light on for me next time.
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

MY STYLE FIX: CUTOUT PINK DRESS

Happy Hump Day! I woke up to 30 degrees this morning, so to the state of Florida I would like to give a hearty go to hell. Yeah that's right, with your balmy weather everyday, go straight to hell. If you're in California or Arizona and you're laughing, shut that up immediately (straight face). You can get some too, with that year round sunshine BS. Ugh...you guys disgust me right now! Sure I'm slightly jealous. It's Spring after all and frost still exist in my world. I can't.
To make matters worst, not only do I have to go out everyday and expose myself to this brutality, but I have to wallow in it for extended periods of time. If I had known, I would've started this blog well into Summer. I mean, right now, I'm outside day after day, rain or shine...well...let me think about that...not really rain so much. I do sorta draw the line there. I've never tested the theory, but I'm about 93 percent positive that if rain ever comes in contact with my body I would melt. Yeah, you got it, just like butter. I promise. I'm no risk taker, so, if it's raining I don't go. And I mean ANYWHERE. My tactic has worked so far, since I'm still here. Besides, I'm not into the whole frizzy hair thing. But, you get the point.
So rain notwithstanding, I'm out there and let me be clear, it's really kinda hard being all smily, smily, and posey, posey when my nipples are frozen. That sorta pain before noon is ungodly and downright disrespectful. Take today for instance,as soon as I stepped out the door I immediately regretted not wearing thermal everything. Wtf! Sure it will be 60 degrees later on in the day and normally, on the go pairing, my spring dress, with a denim jacket, and flats would've sufficed. However, for my blog I wallow remember, and if this keeps up I may become the first nippleless, big headed, personal style blogger ever. I mean don't get me wrong I'm into breaking records and all, but I like my nipples. My head size, well, not so much but...I digress.   
Sheesh, who knew there were so many inherent hazards of personal style blogging. Not to mention, all the gazes, which, if truth be told are closer to soul piercing gawks of nosey passerby's who are clearly thinking I'm a nutbag, since I'm the only genius lollygaging in freezing ass temperatures. Well...the photog is too, but they can totally tell by the look on his face that he's either a hostage or my BF and either way he's being forced. It's either he has Stockholm Syndrome or he's madly in love with me, which is pretty much one in the same at this point, but whatever. The photog has an excuse.
I on the other hand can be a ridiculous person at times. Who else would do such a thing?! I just wish I could be ridiculous in the sunshine, on a beach, maybe with a drink, and perhaps surrounded by some Floridians, but they'll probably ban me now, since I did pretty much tell them to F off. Please forgive me Florida I blame brain freeze.   
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

MY STYLE FIX: COLORED JEANS

Happy Monday! Today I'd like to start by thanking Little Miss Twiggy and Brooklyn Grace for doing an awesome feature of me on their blogs. I was really stoked that they wanted to introduce my blog to their readers. I was totally flattered, but I promise not to let it get to my head. I mean, it's already twice the size of a normal shaped head as is! So, for the good of my shoulders I'll be sure to take all this attention in stride. Trust me, you would too if you had to hold up a twenty pound mass with just your neck. Let's just say heavy is an understatement, and I've been carrying it around for more years than I can count. I can hardly even wear hats and turtlenecks are so out. Bet, you thought you had problems (SMH, real slow it's heavy). But I digress.  
The fact that I was included was awesome coupled with my Michael Kors Giveaway was a great start to the weekend that wasn't half bad. I had dinner with friends which was the half that was actually good. The other half was akin to toe jam. Just gross! It's been raining incessantly since Saturday evening. I mean, it's been well over 24hrs and it's still raining! 
Those whinny prayers from Long Island about please don't let the brush fire get to my house and please don't let my house burn down, must have really gotten through. I blame those little prayer warriors and their lack of faith in their local fire department who, btw could have more than handled those 500 acres of burning bush. This is just the sorta thing those 15 men train for. 
So, I just have one question. Why so selfish Long Island?! Now, while your little house is safe, my hair is frizzy, and I can't even wear a decent hat, and you know exactly why. So with an umbrella in hand for this rain soaked cold Spring day, I opted to wear boots pairing them with green skinnies, white shirt, and a navy blazer. I hope you're proud of yourself Long Island. Look at what you did. Please say thank you and tell him to stop. 
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

MY STYLE FIX: MIXING PATTERNS

TGIF! First of all I would like to thank FabSugar for featuring one of my looks as their look of the day! I'm very excited as it couldn't come at a better time. Of course, it's awesome exposure for my blog and all that good stuff, but even better than that, it brings me so much closer to my dream. My dream of prying Angie's hooks outta my love, Brad M-Fing. Pitt! Clearly, I'm running outta time. Every passing moment her death grip gets that much tighter, considering she's trying to force him to marry her. Yes, "Force"! Just the thought of her dragging MY MAN down the isle gives me all types of bloody diarrhea. I can't...
Brad deserves better and by better I mean me. Angie will be fine. I mean, if you listen to various sources or everybody on the planet (tomato, tomatoe) she's like drop dead gorgeous or something (Screwface). If you subscribe to what most call facts and I call blatant lie telling, both men and women would kill to straddle her, but whatever, I don't see it. Besides, what do they know any way. Most people are so doped up on Xanax they can't even see straight yet alone form a rational opinion. I'm just saying. 
Don't get me wrong, she's ok, I guess, if you're into flawless skin, a perfect body, and the face of a goddess. Not to mention she has the fertility of at least two bunny rabbits. Men like that sorta thing, so she'll have no shortage of potential replacements once I snatch Brad from her clutches. It's the right thing to do because Brad deserves better and by better I mean me. 
So fingers crossed that yesterday was one of those rare days Angie gave him permission to use the internet, and he logs into FabSugar, because clearly that's the first site he would visit, right?! Just go with it. It's my delusion, and I say he goes there first. In your delusion you can send him wherever you want. But I digress. Once he sees me in those leather shorts. What?! Done and Done! Zahra can kiss her daddy goodbye, because I'm not letting him go back. And just in case my plan doesn't work, today I opted to pair flare jeans, a striped tee, and a flowy jacket in the hopes that lightning will strike twice, and my look will get chosen again. Brad has been known to fall for a jeans and tee kinda girl. For him, I can be that and more (not that type of "more" nasty).
Enjoy your day and have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by<3

MY STYLE FIX: BOYFRIEND KHAKIS & BLAZER

Happy hump day!!This morning I decided to go with a super relaxed look. I paired boyfriend khakis with a purple blouse, white blazer, and sandals. I actually had every intention of returning the khakis. However, after using those trick mirrors that they (you know who you are)strategically place in the dressing rooms, to make us look taller, thinner, and prettier than our reality, just so we can dole out big bucks, I bought the pants, falling really hard for what had to be a mirage. A big lie! Hugh deception! 
I was clearly conned, because it wasn't until I got home and tried on the pants in front of my no ulterior motive mirror that I realized that the pants were more baggy than I would have liked. It's just so ridiculous, because a mere two hours earlier I thought they were perfect as I couldn't stop checking myself out in the dressing room. Trust me, if you were there it would have made you nauseous. The narcissism was down right over the top.  

That was remedied very quickly though as my mirror revealed to me what should have been obvious in the store. So much so that I just knew I was going right back to the store and bitch slap the sales girl just because. She's in on the conspiracy after all with her fake niceties, knowing all too well that it was one big game of gotchya. I mean who does that?! I really was going to give it to her, but I never made it back to the store, and I'm now the reluctant owner of the khakis since the return date has long passed.
Well lemons into lemonade as they say. I'm not afraid of a little extra slouch any way. I actually love the look when paired with feminine or structured pieces. If you really wanna know in hindsight the extra slouch may actually enhance the look. Don't tell the sales girl though as I still reserve the right to at least tackle that trolip to the ground for her trickery.

Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

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.

MY STYLE FIX

SUNDAY HIKE: BOYFRIEND SHORTS & HOODIE
Happy Monday!! I don't know about you, but I got a lot of R&R this weekend!I'm not so sure if it was well deserved though.I tend to luxuriate more often than not, but before you start going on and on about how lazy and shiftless I am, you have to realize that the rest is needed. It's so necessary! Trust me, the people around me reap the benefits of my perpetual relaxed state more so than I do. Let's just say without it babies will be pinched, children will cry, and all others will cower. Yeah, it's that serious, and no one is exempt as you can see. Did I not mention that babies WILL get pinched?! It's that crying thing, I can't... 
So, to prevent mass casualties, I like to unwind a lot. It helps. One of my favorite things to do to maintain my chi is hiking. Yesterday, I whipped out one of my weekend go to staples, my converse, and paired them with super comfy pieces, boyfriend denim shorts, white tee, and a sequins hoodie. Heels hardly ever touch my feet Friday-Sunday. For me, It's all about relaxing on the weekends, and heels especially those 4 inches and up, torture devices, that seem better suited for Chinese foot binding, do not exist in my world on the weekend.  
Now on the weekdays, I punish myself just like you do, (SMH-real fast). The higher the better. The more pain, I'm in! If I can barely walk in them, Perfect. As long as the heel gives me life, this honey badger don't care, and I know you know exactly what I'm talking about. You're probably wearing some death traps right now shaking your head real fast at the drama you're putting yourself through. And, the sad part is, these things are mutually exclusive! The best heels always seem to hurt.
Well, I put my foot down (pun intended)on the weekends, and just say no. That way, I'm free to enjoy the moment without the constant mind numbing pain radiating from the place where my foot is supposed to be. I'm free to take normal strides, and dare I say, run. Yes, wipe that shocked look off your face. You heard me correctly, running is possible! I mean, I don't go that far, but I could if I wanted to. 
It's so liberating and freeing that I recommend that you try it. Take a day off from the heels preferably on the weekends when you're not vying for the attention of "BOB" in the cubicle next to you. He's broke, but he's really into heels. Otherwise, pick a day or two, and be nice to yourself. No pain. Just the pleasure created in the moment. 
It's so worth! Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

FANCY FIX

Marc By Marc Jacobs Calf Dora Sneaker:
 You may look at this and think "What the What" or you may pass out from the sheer awesomeness that is this magnificent creation. Clearly, I'm in the latter category and I love these wedge sneakers enough to feature them here. In fact, I'm almost certain that it gave me life for the next two to three years. I'm in need of a fix!

MY STYLE FIX

Floral Draped Front Jacket
Happy Friday the 13th! Let me just start by asking a serious question. Why in sam hell does Mark Zuckerberg want my phone number?! I need to know because at this point I don't know if I should be scared or flattered. If I should call the feds or go gushing to my friends about my new romantic potential (he's filthy rich after all). Let me just say this so that we are clear, I would leave it all behind for him and ride off in the sunset or wherever he wanted to go. Don't even start side eyeing me and getting all judgmental because you know that you would do the same thing for less green pastures, like for BOB in the cubical next to you, and he's broke. Besides Zuckerberg probably wouldn't mind taking snaps of me. But, I digress.
Seriously though, why does Mark Zuckerberg want my phone number?! Clearly, he's only after me, because so far no one has expressed a similar experience with Facebook. I quit Facebook a few years ago because there was too much obsessed stalking going on. I mean, it was a 24/7 thing.It was almost a full blown problem and people were concerned, but I turned it all around, and the stalking stopped after I got help. Yes me! It was messy and everybody is safe for now. 
So, with my issues under control I opened a Facebook Page for all things related to my blog. So, for instance I would share my latest looks, like this floral blazer paired with skinnies,blouse,and booties on my Facebook Page .Plus additional fun things like outtakes or this awesome Facebook Feature that was done about one of my looks. This all seems super helpful right, and even pretty benign. That's until Zuckerburg wanted more than just my email address. In fact, after I started my page, logging in and out very routinely, I was blindsided recently by a flashing request for my phone number and a promise that how he wouldn't give it to anybody, but if I didn't give it to HIM he wouldn't let me back on my page. 
What the What?! All kinds of expletives ran through my mind which I'm sure Zuckerburg can read because how did he know to recommend as my friends people I actually already know (Big Bug Eyes). This is a new page after all and a new account. He knows too much, he's everywhere, and he's up to stuff...the dark nefarious kind of stuff, and lots of it. Now that I think about it what really happened to Steve Jobs. Is it a coincidence that Zuckerberg just captured instagram with Jobs out of the way. Hmm...I'm just saying, the timing is suspect. 
All this is hypothetical of course, but I took no chances and happily gave him my number. Even if he's the evil "Pinky and the Brain" type waiting to bring the world to it's knees I hope he calls and I'm waiting with bated breath, I did mention that he's filthy rich after all so this is a no brainer. And to you Zucky Bear because I know you're reading,I say have your way with them. Crush them if you must, but take me!! 
I hope you have a blast this weekend! Thanks for stopping by <3
