I love a man that can dress. Being able to play with color and pulling it off is not easy for everyone, but once you have mastered this, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Not only does it make a man look confident, it also shows that he puts thought into his day. If you feel and look great, your day will be just as fantastic. Now, I have an accent piece addiction and an even bigger one when it comes to dressing a man, these basic pieces are just as simple for men, as they have been for women for years. Here are a few accent pieces a man can throw in to his gear to compliment his look.
Now go turn some heads!
HELLOOOOO, FRIDAY! I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had quite a busy week and I’m stoked that it’s finally Friday! Thanks for hanging out with me while Wajima took some time off to focus on some important things going on in her life these days!
Let’s see, so far this week, I’ve shared with you my love of both beautiful faces and beautiful music! Now, let’s take a look at my obsession with the retro 60’s clothing worn by the cast of the AMC award-winning series, Mad Men…more specifically the characters of Don Draper and Joan Holloway. No need for me to ramble on about how much I love them because I could go on for DAYS! Seriously…when I “grow up”, I wanna look Just. Like. Joan…or at least have that woman’s measurements!!
Take a look for yourself at the sexy, classy and sophisticated style of these two drop-dead gorgeous characters!
I may be wearing this Alice and Olivia number all wrong but in all honesty the dress is just all wrong…it’s some crazy jersey material on top and some weird cotton on the bottom. I believe it ties on the back but for whatever reason I decided to tie it in the front. I feel so very old and dated whenever I try something trendy and alternative like this on because I just really can’t get into this look. I always end up in Tahari or DVF. That said, I can see how some of you might like it and so I’ve shared. I tried this on at Nordstrom I didn’t catch the price but Alice and Olivia are usually pretty affordable and seeing as how this looks like something you’d find at Target I’m going to go ahead and assume it’s not very expensive.
The other day while shopping at our home away from home, Barney’s. My husband and I chatted up one of our favorite Barney’s employees, Alex (Carlos, I love you too boo) I looked off into the distance and saw these…I was tempted to touch and I found that they are the softest pair of jeans I’ve ever held in my hands but the biggest size available was a size 26. I’m not afraid to say that I am NOT a size 26 and my # 1 rule to looking fabulous at all times is that I refuse to squeeze into anything! If they don’t have my size I always go bigger and have it taken in. I turned to Alex and in a defeated voice said, “they are perfect but they are not my size” Alex, encouraged that I try them on anyway and thank god he did! (You hear that Barney’s managers Alex always makes a sale…always)…ladies they are exquisitely soft like leggings but they have pockets like jeans.
Now, I know I’m super late on this but apparently they are known, as “JEGGINGS” and they are amazing! Like I said, I don’t encourage this with any piece of clothing especially jeans but you can even size down like I did for a snug fit and because of their high spandex content you won’t look like a muffin. I swear I invented these in the 90’s but as most of my inventions go I didn’t have the resources or connections. What a hot commodity! Run don’t walk to your nearest Barney’s and pick up a pair. The brand is EVER. These “jeggings” are so comfortable you can literally sleep in them, then wake up in the morning and brush your teeth with a bottle of jack.
