differences


Clog / Mule movement is happening all over again. And I am ready! I'm so ready! They're my thing. I find them extremely comfortable to walk in, they give me stability when I walk. 

My next clog/mule purchase will def be closed toe. Thinking about these: Michael Kors, Free People
In case you were wondering what is the difference between a clog and mule. A clog is solid wooden platform (almost like a wedge), a mule is a heel kinda like these Vince's.

One Teaspoon





Here I am! Exposing my short, minion, untanned legs. 
But totally necessary. I've been wanting to buy a pair of One Teaspoon's since...FOREVER. I didn't make any moves. According to lots of peeps they fit like underwear and girls with butts cant wear them. So, automatically I gave up hope on owning a pair, you know, since I have a big-o-butt. 

A few days ago I experienced one of the biggest let-downs of my life. My favorite local boutique, Madam Butterfly, started carrying One Teaspoon! I could finally try them in real life. And guess what? They fit. Apparently my ass is small. All this time I considered myself the very least a JLo type. Nope! More like a...idk a celebrity with a small butt. Sad, right? Depressing! Better believe I squat whenever the opportunity arises; washing dishes, folding socks, while doing absolutely nothing at all. SQUAT! 

However, this isn't about my butt. It's about finally owning something I've been wanting! And how prefect they are and how I want them in every single color in the exact same style. Like the black w/ rose gold buttons! Mind Blown. 

My advice for you; if you want something- just go for it. At least try it. Even if it means you have to up a size or look foolish or hurt your own feelings. Give yourself a chance.

believin' it


So the other day I was talking to one of my girls and we came to the conclusion that I'm not sexy! I truly believe thats she's been wanting to say that to me and was waiting for the perfect opportunity. I asked. It hurt, like a dagger to my lower back. Sure I've never been one to show to much body part and obsessed with buying clothes in the mens department but I always thought I was a slight bit sexy. Anyway I guess I will always be a slight bit tomboy. 

In efforts to EVOLVE me style I wanted to start buying and wearing items I don't typically wear. Like a short mini skirt. I scored this sweet skirt on REVOLVE. Get it? Pun intended! 

Please share your advise, on how to be sexy! I need it!!!

structured and grey




If there is one thing I will (from now on) suggest to someone who asks for fashion advice- well, even if they don't- is to own a cotton/polyester blazer! I, myself just realized I own three in grey, obviously different shades. I recommend looking for one that is structured and heather grey. Blazers are already a cool piece. They take an outfit 0 to 100 real quick (hmm I love Drake). Now even if you have a casual outfit or your work doesn't require you to get super dressed just adding a more relaxed blazer takes you places your coworkers have never been. They'll ask "from where?" trust me. That is when you grin with a feeling of awesomeness. Your response will be either "It was a gift" because you want to be the only cool dressed or "______ store" your a softie. My response depends on my mood and most importantly the person.

hair-stels for spring


You know, I've never been the type to do a crazy color with my hair. 1). I'm scared to do it and looking a like a major bean! 2). It's a little too wild for me. Yet, recently, I find myself  wondering what would I look like? Maybe I would look like a mermaid! Obviously a mexican mermaid, but nonetheless a mermaid! 

The ponder is real, so I felt like sharing!

Aggressively worn



Let me tell you a little story about this denim blue leather vest. So I was at Nordstrom Rack cursing through the clearance section. I saw this leather vest, picked it up but didn't think much of it (I'm not into vest but I really liked the length). I gave it a chance. Threw it in the basket. After all I wanted it to prove to me that vest can trusted.  Long story. 
As I was in the fitting room, I noticed a real cool pink/blue metallic lining in the inside of the vest. I was like WHOA! Stepped back, observed the actual vest as a whole- smelled like scrumptious leather, felt incredibly soft (baby-ass soft), and realized the price point originally $645 marked down to $39.90!!!! I was like "GINNNNNNNAAAAA"!!! Didn't even finish trying on the rest of my stuff. Practically ran to the register to pay. Maybe I was scared it wasn't real. It was! I won! You guys, I had the biggest grin on my face, I probably scared the cashier. I'm pretty positive standing in her shoes I looked extra creepy. But It was an incredible feeling. Have you ever felt that?

I must say, since then, the amount of times I have been wearing this vest is a little aggressive. I'm secretly hoping someone compliments me or gives me a comment so I can share my story.

Happy (early) Valentines Day!



Oh how I love Valentines day! It's one of my absolute favorite holidays. 
I can't tell you exactly why, but I just LOVE it! I'm starting to think its all the adorable d├ęcor. Like heart shaped pancakes, tons of flowers everywhere, organic rose water, pink colored pressed juice (PS check out my article on City Scout for the perfect vday gift featuring my favorite, Liquidology). 
 I almost want to buy those adorable valentines cards that we had to distribute as little kids during valentines class parties. You know like the mickey mouse, barbie, power ranger ones! Ringin' a bell? Anyway, I didn't buy them. Instead I bought balloons! 

Have a perfect Valentines Day! 
xoxo, Jac
