I can not get enough of leather or well imitation leather which ever one you prefer. I for one am clearly fine with either. I look the toughness and roughness leather brings when you incorporate it in your outfit but this fall what I am personally trying to attain is a more put together, sophisticated classy leather look. Something more feminine. And I have been obsessed with Leather paneled leggings ever since they debuted recently. I thought what better way to maintain your sophistication by wearing them with a fitted cardigan or cardigan style top. If that is paneled? EVEN BETTER! Ofcourse we can never have enough burgundy in our closets during the Fall season so I wanted to immediately pair my black leather pants/leggings with some burgundy colored accessories. The chain link on the shoes bring somewhat of tie in between the leather and the charm of a cardigan and then we add the matchstick necklace to tie that in further. I could have opted for some boots but then ofcourse throws us over to the roughness again that we see in moves, magazines and on the street with leather clad ladies everywhere. You can even add some lace to the combo (not pictured here) but that would make this some more feminine.
Let me know what you think and how are you pulling off your leather this Fall?

This outfit came to life when I first walked into H&M about a little over a week ago to check out what I wanted to score from Giselle for H&M Fall collection. I bought three things from the line the two jackets and these imitation leather pants. I wore the craziness out of my black pleather pants last Fall and winter and thought immediately since Olive and Army green is sucha huge thing this Fall and winter this cheap yet highly quality pants would fit right into my wardrobe. These are also going to be warmer then any other leggings you own because they have somewhat of a warm material on the inside which almost feels like very very thin fleece. These also give the appearance of a legging but they are actually pants with zips on the side of your waist.
I am still not over peplum tops and I saw some really good ones at Express. They are made of the perfect stretchy material to give you the oomph where you need it and hide the problem spots if you have any. I also loved the two toned color block concept on the front of the top and the two toned pipping and zip on the back. This gives your outfit a whole new meaning. The front is different then the back so people might just have to double take once they pass you and blink their eyes to get it all right. I think the best way to wear this outfit will be with some cute classy booties to add some edge but you can always put some heels on if you want a more chic look.
Let me know if you are looking forward to everything Olive this fall and winter?

Here we are again on a Friday again searching and hunting for bargain deals that I can share with you guys and this time around I wanted to keep Labor day in mind since it is this Monday. Alot of us will be going to cook outs and picnics. And I thought what would be best to wear? A hi-low flowery dress. It will be perfect to bid farewell to warm weather as well as I don’t know why I always feel maxis can sometimes get humid down under…if you catch my drift. And no not there!! get your mind out the gutter lol. But a Hi-low dress would be perfect and airy to let your legs and thighs breath while seating on plastic chairs and not get glued to them haha.
I also thought the best way to bring out the flowery details in this simple black dress would be by wearing one prominent color that is in the dress print. To keep it girlie we can go with pink accessories but if you are not a pink girl you can switch the accessories to white or for late evening to even gold.
I am not sure what direction my weekend will head to but all I care is relax alittle bit more as school has just started back up and my work schedule is bound to get crazy soon too. I have some BIG NEWS to share with you guys in regards to my health but I guess we can wait on that a bit. I will reveal it with my next outfit post.
Let me know what you are planning to do for your Labor Day weekend and feel free to share what you wore.

I know weekly style shopper has been MIA for a bit but its making a come back and should be posted every week like it used to be. Now lets talk about a trend that I have been aching to put on since the beginning of this summer but haven’t had a chance thanks to me being injured and unable to workout causing me to gain a bit of belly weight is- CROP TOPS! but crop tops don’t always have to mean that we have to show some skin when we are feeling uncomfortable. A good way to wear crop tops and not show too much skin is to pair it up with high waisted shorts, pants or skirts of any length. And then adding some pieces of statement jewelry, neat looking metallic rings and shoes to make the outfit stand out. I found the cutest looking shoes at Charlotte Russe. I don’t think I have seen sandals quite like this so I knew I had to build an outfit around them. Let me know what you think.
P.S feel free to let me know if you are interested in any specific styles that are out for summer or upcoming fall. Any special events you would like me to suggest outfits for etc.

So I am going to get back into my regular posting schedule! The moving was done last weekend and it kicked my behind real bad. We have a lovely brand new place but hard part was we are on the 3rd floor. Yup this place got sold out real quick before they even finished constructed the buildings so we got the last one available. I recorded my last haul video in my last apartment that is in desperate need of some editing and will hopefully go up soon so watch out for that!
Valentines Day was meh for me not that I care alot about such events to me its about being together, having awesome dinner and dressing up but I was at work all day and then had class till 10pm. I picked up some delicious dinner on my way back from class so we enjoyed that in our apartment which to me still feels like some fancy hotel when I wake up in the morning.
So the last I posted my Weekly Style shopper we were goings nuts with oxblood and reds but guess what? We are making it big this season with Olive green! I am seeing it everywhere! And I couldnt stop oogling this Olive blazer from H&M. Lets hope when I go to the mall next its ready and available for me in my size lol. I wanted this look to be chic yet tough. The blazer and light weight tee brings in the chic part and the olive green, skinny jeans, tough boots and patch of faux leather bring out the toughness! Trust me people will be guessing all night who the mystery lady is that is dressed in such a daring outfit. This is one of the outfits I have done for my foot that I will hope to wear asap once the weather on the east coast gets warmer. Weather is kind of weird here right now we had 52 degrees today after snow yesterday and then we are going to have some more snow tomorrow and sunday…..crazy weather!

I have always been a bigger fan of skin tight dresses and skirts but since a little over a year ago I have started finding true love in flowy, girly, loose dresses and skirts as well. When all of a sudden I came to a realization I don’t have any wide and belowy skirts or dresses in my closet. And ofcourse the skater skirt is currently being worn by every model, celebrity or even fashionistas everywhere.I found one that I am in love with on Asos and its currently on sale! I have the blazer I chose already in mint color in my closet and I love wearing it cause of its unique biker jacket type style. I also realized how shades of black, white and grey are everywhere!!! So hence this post came about as the Fifty Shades of grey cough cough come on I had to jump on the Christian Grey bandwagon 🙂
Today is my officially my first day away from work. It’s getting hard not responding to emails coming in but I am trying my best to atleast continue halfway through my break without touching any work.

So I know this post is utterly delayed! I have been in a different world this entire time. Alot of changes at work alot of pushing and shoving trying to fix things and people that wont cooperate oh well I am not sure if my reaction is making me more angry or laugh the situation off! Added to all this football season! Sundays are zooming past faster then a fighter jet plane!
Anyway so my obsession with printed bottoms continues I have come to conclusion that I enjoy printed leggings alot more then printed pants! Anyway I also found these Christian Siriano for Payless Booties that cost less than half the price of his shoes. Ofcourse I had to be obsessed with them!
All I am going to say is one of these items is already in my closet can you guess which one ?
Booties: Christian Siriano for Payless-$49.99
Leggings: H&M – $9.95
Top: Forever 21 – $19.50
So now that I have completely mastered the trend of leather tights this past week from wearing it with my football jersey to my sheer white button up blouse to God knows what all (Photos of the outfits to follow in the next couple days) and also my leather jacket…its time we move on to different colors of leather and different trends!
I fell in love with this pleated mini skirt from Forever 21 Unfortunately it isnt available at my local Forever 21 so I have to order online. I am torn between the camel and the blue! I mean how cool is a faux mini skirt in blue color and its pleated!? so unique! I just love how it has the perfect body and it will be bouncy! Helps you strut your stuff down the street without needing much help from you 🙂 I have already bought the tope here shown in pink in a cobalt blue! Need to go back to the store to collect all the other available colors! It is the softest and comfiest top that I have bought recently. Most of the time I hate loose and flowy tops but I think this one is perfect to be paired with minis or even with tights given its length and flowiness.
Unfortunately it is already chilly on the upper east coast so I’ll be rocking all this with a pair of tights for those of you lovely ladies in climates that are still slightly warm you can rock them without leggings ..probably what I will be doing come spring time. I don’t if its just me but leather all gives me this feeling that I can kick some behind! POW POW POW…sorry got a little carried away there!
How are you rocking your leather this fall?

Your weekly style shopper is back. And this week I was ecstatic to find a Peplum shirt for $11.90! Yes you read it right and it is also in one of the most in colors of this season Aqua, a color very similar to mint green :). Since its made of stretchy material its bound to fit perfectly. I for one can not wait to get my hands on it. I have so many ideas already concocting in my head of what I am going to wear this with. You can dress a peplum shirt with a contrasting or color blocking bodycon skirt or even a pair of cute shorts. Not feeling like showing alot of legs today? No problem just jump into a pair of skinnies! Trust me the possibilities are endless. And for all the office gals out there this is perfect when worn with a pencil skirt as well so you’d be ready to roll from work to drinks with friends in no time!
The outfit overall reminded me of the beach and the sun because its so blue and has a pop of yellow around the neck thanks to the pretty flowery necklace from forever 21! Imagine while you are stuck at work in this cute outfit atleast you can embody the summer and the beach to cheer you and others around you up 🙂 Not to forget ladies blues and greens of all sorts are two of the BIG colors this season.

It’s Friday and its time for my weekly Style Shopper where I share an amazing bargain outfit with you that I am currently drooling over. This dress is a must have for me and I would definitely be stopping by to grab it at H&M. So the trend this summer will be a lot of water related colors! Sea Greens and Ocean Blues! For the most part the backdrop that I have noticed is mostly white! So we are bringing back Black and white with flowers! Not bad at all….I mean who doesnt have tons of black and white in their closet? I know I was all black and white for years! Anyhow the long weekend is upon us and I can not wait to start it. I have a fun filled day planned! Going downtown again stopping by Baltimore Museum of Art and then hitting up happy hour at Brio an Italian Restaurant. A friend was telling me about the cheap small plates that they have and according to him they are scrumptious! Soooooo ofcourse there will be pictures and reviews on that. Oh the night might just ended up in dancing….i am not sure if my messed pinkie toe will like it, cause it possibly is broken from the bump thump I had 2 weeks ago or so and is only getting worse…we will see 🙂
For now enjoy the Bargain outfit and if you haven’t subscribed already Hit the follow button…trust me you know you need some cheap finds for the coming summer 🙂 Much love! Have a great start to your memorial day!
