Swanky Scrunchie

Scrunchie – Whenever I’m chillen in my sweats, there is a 99.9% chance my hair is in a scrunchie. It’s the epitome of hang-time, the grungiest of grunge looks, and the cloudy with a chance of never leaving bed kind of spirit. Swankyadj. 1. A person or object that is posh, high-class, glamorous, classy, upmarket, etc. Paired side-by-side I consider this the godfather of oxymorons; quite frankly it is the paradigm that runs not only my life, but also my fashion style.

Black-Out






(Tank: Patterson J. Kincaid, Pants: Aqua for Bloomingdale's, Vest: Kenna-T from Nordstroms, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace: Stones&Stitches by Stacey) 

           White-out: probably the best invention since Post-Its; black-out: a perpetual state of obliteration and memory loss from excessive alcohol. A pun indeed, black-out when constructing an outfit constitutes of one thing only, all black-err-thing. It's no coincidence black is the color of choice for the Wicked Witch of the West; the dark hue is quite literally magical. Hips too wide?  Shoulders too broad? Black is the human eraser; it’s the ultimate slimming tool. That being said you can’t just throw on black sweats and a T and declare it fashionably forward, there’s a technique to this trick. Recipe: one suave layday, ingredients: different patterns, textures, shapes, and fabrics, mix 'em all up and you’ve got yourself a hot piece of cake. My favorite part of wearing all black is accessorizing with colorful jewelry, bags and shoes; it’s like a blank canvas waiting to be painted on with vibrant accessories.
