Masculine re-boot

img_4320

Once again, I would like to show my love for a skirt over dress outfit, just as I did in my previous post. I selected this outfit because it looks dressy yet masculine, which is the look I was going for. Oversized menswear inspired blazer in addition to these boots give this look a rugged vibe.
One of my favorite stores to visit in Dallas is Zara. The best time to shop there, of course, is during their 50-70% off sale. In this “fast food” retail world, full-price items you see, will most likely go on sale immediately after the next collection is introduced. The original price for these boots was $150 but I got them for only $30. I bought two other boots similar to these ones, only spending under $100 for both.

Lovely Lace

Lately there has been an outfit combination that I find myself particularly drawn to, which is wearing skirt over a dress. It works especially well when the dress has a cute detail and is longer than the skirt. For example, this lingerie inspired silky dress has a lace trim end which makes it look as if it is one with the skirt. Since I have long legs, most cute skirts I see end up too short on me. This was my solution, I can wear a skirt I like and yet not reveal much by wearing a dress under it.
When it comes to unique and amazing deals, I would like to mention Poshmark, an online fashion website. You can sell your own clothes or buy items from closets all over the world. I had personally found some rare items that can no longer be found in stores or online. This forest green suede handbag by Tory Burch was one of my greatest finds. I plan to sell a few of my things in the near future so stay on the lookout and check my social media for updates.

All about that fur

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned getting a couple of winter coats from a vintage store in Deep Ellum. Dallas’ polar opposite weather gave me the chance to bring out one of them. I noticed this beautiful coat on a mannequin the moment I walked in. It caught my eye and I just knew that it was meant for me. It fit as if it was tailored for me. In addition to the classic camel coat, a fur coat is an ultimate must have. Although I don’t like to wear fur, this wool fur coat became my best friend on those really cold winter days.

In the mood for nude

img_3571

Dallas weather has been as unpredictable as ever. One day you need layers of clothing and the next, you are walking out in sandals. A couple of rainy, yet pleasant, days passed through and invited me to wear this raincoat. For brunch, I made my way to Bird Cafe in downtown Fort Worth. I have a bright memory of taking my mother here 3 years ago when she visited me after many years.
Finding those “perfect nude” pumps posed a difficulty for me for quite some time now. I love the fact that they aren’t nude all over, and have a cute snake skin detail. But wait, not only they are cute but are also very comfortable. I could spend hours walking in these pretty nudes.
I chose to combine this with a navy leather bag and a matching skirt. The skirt is a little big on me and so I used a belt to make it fit. This leather bag became my ultimate go to bag, thanks to its’ versatility. I can wear it as a messenger bag if I want casual, or as a baguette if I’m going for a dressier look.

Adorable fluffy little puppy, running behind me, also seemed to be in a hurry to get to Bird Cafe.
