Why Did You Wear That: Trail Blazers

You may only associate the blazer as a piece of clothing worn by uptight businessmen and those ladies who wear white sneakers on their commute to work, but I’d like to let you in on a little style secret.  The blazer is far less boring and uptight than you think it is.  As a matter of fact, a blazer can go great for a laid back weekend running errands or a night out on the town with your girlfriends.  Check out how Heidi, Miranda, and Blake all incorporated this style staple into their wardrobes this week:

Time to take the blazer from the cubicle to the cluuuuuurb.





Girl Crush: Go Play a Video Game

In case you haven’t already been sucked in by her first single, Video Games, this sultry songstress is Lana del Rey.  Though there is much speculation as to whether she is a product of her management and as to where exactly she came from (she was formerly known as Lizzy Grant)- one thing is for sure: girlfriend can sing.  Her sound is like nothing else out there and her voice is utterly intoxicating.  As if her vocal chops aren’t enough, she is strikingly gorgeous with doe eyes and voluptuous lips (also much speculation on those).  Her self described style is “Gangster Nancy Sinatra.”  She sports big hair and big accessories– and in this case, bigger is definitely better.

 1. American Apparel 3D Flower Mesh Jumper, $88, 2. Chaser American Flag Tee, $49, 3. GirlProps Two Finger Nugget Ring, $9.99, 4. Forever21 Twisted Hoop Earrings, $1.50, 5.

You the bestest.




Why Did You Wear That: You Com-Pleat Me

I can’t lie, the lovely Ms. Fox inspired this post. I have had a pair of slouchy pleated pants hanging in my closet for a few months now and every time I put them on, I felt a bit more Ellen Degeneres than Megan Fox. After seeing how hot a pair of simple slacks could look, I was inspired to try again.  A slouchy pleated pant is a great alternative to jeans, leggings, and your regular dress/work slacks. Here are some great pleated options for you to try out as well:

Stella McCartney Pleated Cropped Pants, $595

Bird by Juicy Couture Carrot Silhouette Trousers, $328

Myne Tamara Pants, $210

Something Else by Natalie Wood Slouchy Pleat Front Pants, $117

American Apparel Linen High Waist Pleated Pants, $75

Silence and Noise Pleated Ankle Roll Pant, $58

Charlotte Russe Cropped Pleated Slouchy Pants, $29.50



Why Did You Wear That: Thigh High

When you think of thigh high boots, your first thought may be that of Julia Roberts a la Pretty Woman, but that’s a bit narrow minded, my friend. When not constructed of man made material, over the knee boots are quite sexy, yet still very chic. Pair them with your favorite pants or a flowy dress and you are going to be the prettiest woman in the room.

Christian Louboutin Gazolina 140 Suede Over the Knee Boots, $2,101

Sergio Rossi Suede Over the Knee Boots, $1,400

Sigerson Morrison Long Cuff Over the Knee Boots, $995

Sam Edelman Sutton Black Suede Over the Knee Boots, $225

Kelsi Dagger Briallen Leather Over the Knee Boots, $188

Charlotte Russe Over the Knew Faux Suede Boots, $45.50



Why Did You Wear That: Romper Room


Man, there isn’t much I love more than a romper. It’s like an all in one outfit… just hard to pee in. What is a romper you ask. Here is the official “romper” definition:

romper suit is a one-piece garment worn by children and sometimes women. Somewhat similar to a coverall, it is loose fitting and usually has shorter legs that may be gathered at the end. Puffed pants are particularly associated with rompers. Rompers usually are meant as a combination of shorts and a shirt, though the term can include jumpers, one-piece bathing suits, and clubwear fashions to name a few.
