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.

(Shrug: Alice&Olivia, Tank: SUNNER for Saks Fifth Avenue, Skirt: Zara, Knee-Highs: Urban Outfitters, Booties: Pour la Victoire)

           I never thought that clothes could be thrown into the same category as eggs, however the first word that came to mind when making this outfit was scrambled. I love the colors of this corset top; they’re so vibrant and fun! It is the perfect top to wear with those bright colored jeans that are trending right now. However, I opted for a more neutral bottom, a beige leather skirt, leaving the bright colors for my upper half. I cannot quite put my finger on it, but something about knee-highs gets me.  Paired with heels they add some swankanista points to anyone’s style. I take my outfits like I take my eggs, well done ;)

Furry Flurry

(Jeans: Rag&Bone, T-Shirt: Rebel Yell, Vest: Zara, Necklace: H&M, Bracelets: Chan Luu and Hermes, Shoes: Jeffery Campbell, Gold Ring:H&M, Turquoise Ring: hippie store on State Street) 

                Nothing keeps you warm on a frigid February day like a furry companion. Fortunately, I have two! My cuddly canine’s name is Zoey; trust me she can get her swank on. At a whooping seven inches tall (on hind legs) Zoey is the perfect winter accessory. Numero dos is this fabulously fluffy faux fur vest, and YES that was no type-o it’s faux. To the Zara on the glamorous Passeig de Gracia en Barcelona I give thanks for this truly amazing article of clothing. Paired with my wide leg Rag and Bone elephant flare jeans and my rocker tee this outfit screams hello Penny Lane (Kate Hudson in Almost Famous, umm obviously?!) Going along with the hippie theme I opted to stack my wrists with bracelets and bring on the ring bling.
