You guys, I have over 3,000 photos saved to my phone of things that inspire me. So I figured I start a series of inspiration, like a collage. And lately, I've been noticing I mostly save pictures that are dominated by black and white accents. Which only makes sense since I've been obsessed over that color combo. Seriously.
Fast forward to the tiny Bar....WANT. I am trying to recreate. Maybe I'll post a picture of mine once it's done.

Kanye West vibes people! Kanye West. All black looks with ripped jeans at the knee and add a neutral colored shoe. Boom. And I'm almost 100 percent sure we can all pull out simple all black looks from our closet. The simplicity of all black but statement is real people!

You know, I'm not one to brag. But every now and then, especially when confidence needs a little boosting, I brag. Maybe, you already know where I'm getting. If you don't... I'm talking about having tiny boobs.
Growing up, I was hopeful I would eventually get some goods. Religiously prayed for a chance to develop my lady lumps in all the right places. I'm telling you, I waited to years, even after puberty.
Once I was in college I came to an understanding that some things are just not going to happen (at least naturally). It was hard to accept. Especially when your little sister is getting that 'Coke' or 'Kim K' body that you desperately wanted. I often ask her "how does it feel to have big boobs?" I live bi-curiously through her.
Anyway about my bragging. Since my boobs are small, I really don't have to worry about looking too hoochie when in reality I'm trying to be Jenna Lyons. Because as you know wearing button-ups almost unbuttoned is totally IN right now. Which is why having small boobs is a benefit. So, braggggg.
The outfit? I'm wearing this to meet girlfriends or boo for drinks. Perhaps a party, small shindig (no pun intended). I wrapped a jean jacket around my waist just in case it gets chilly and I want to tone down all that seduction, low plunge/skin tight skirt.

Silky scarfs, making a major comeback. And I am a full supporter. In fact, I think everyone should go out and purchase one. Borrow it from your mama's or grandma's closet. They will create such an interesting element to your outfit.
My favorite way to wear the scarf is by wrapping it around once, then tying in the back.
Guys, I kinda sound like a broken record BUT I- like the majority of fashion lovers- looove Fall. It's the perfect time of year. Holidays are near, pumpkin spice, peppermint, gingerbread lattes, cool weather, layers of clothing, not to mention the hunt for the perfect coat. Which mind you, I've been looking for the perfect one for years. I always push it off by buying other things. Unfortunately I cant have it all... yet.
Anyway, all these coats are on my wish list. All for different reasons. Topshop: well...it's necessary. The perfect color, looks elegant, and this color on a coat looks expense! Right? Finder Keepers: need I really say more??? Madewell: the most perfect military coat I've ever laid eyes on. The zippers, mid-high collar, the contrast. Literally makes my knees weak. Loose Candy: my favorite color. Plus, this forest green is an "it" color for fall. Rag & Bone: pattern to elevate any outfit. I can see myself wearing all black underneath and then boom - pattern!
Awww and finally, the Investment piece, the black coat. The Row: not because my favorite sisters of all time are the designers but because it's a timeless and classic piece. You could literally pass it down for generations. And if you don't but any other coat ever, you'll be set forever w just this one!
This is my "on duty" look, meaning work fit. To me wrap dresses are so elegant and professional and classy and just...uh right. Years go when I would see these dresses, either in magazines or on an actual person, I would fantasies about the day I would wear one. Although I desperately wanted a DVF one, I settled for a Forever 21 dress, still wraps.
However, Diane Von Furstenberg gets women, is proud of women. And I truly feel that her signature dresses are a representation of that. Which is why I still desperately want one. Eventually.
