The majority of human beings can not pull off a drop-crotch. It easily looks like a saggy diaper. And how do you know if one can pull it off? The simple answer is that you still find them attractive and that the crotch has no relevance to their attractiveness.
For some odd reason, I have always felt that red never looked good on my skin tone, but after my roommate gave me this tangy, red beret -wahla!- red fever struck my being. Every skin tone coincides with particular color shades, as in; one can wear any color, as long as they find the right shade of that color. My issue for the longest time was not coming across a red that accentuates the tones of my skin. It seems in the past few days, red is the only thing on my mind. Call Taylor Swift, she can’t have her “Red” back.
Not to give myself a big head or anything, but lately I have been feeling like a reality tv superstar. It may be the countless hours watching Real Housewives or Shahs of Sunset on Bravo, but it’s like my every moment is being documented for the entertainment of millions of viewers stateside. Many people try to diss reality tv stars, but they hold a stressful job. Cameras follow them around 24/7 to capture all the scripted drama that would cease to exist if it wasn’t for money, hungry producers.
Keeping It Fierce in the 90210
Oversized sweaters are the hottest selling price item right now among college campuses and those that choose to be comfy, while looking effortlessly fabulous. Nothing screams indie and trendy like a thrift store find with boots and leggings. Top it with an infinity scarf and high bun, and you are left looking like a coffee-drinking, twitter fiend that clearly ignores social faux-pas.
I have contemplated with this post because quite frankly, I feel hypocritical. For the longest time, I have chastised my fellow skin walkers that have adorn black and brown combos. However, with the purchase of my absolutely, fabulous pair of Minnetonka fringe boots, I find myself wearing black to really have them stand out. Not to say black and brown go together, but various shades do compliment each other. For example, dark brown is a definite “no” to pair with black, but a nice tan or camel is chic. *side note: if you are doing camel with black, make sure to not over do it. Try and keep a single camel-piece present. Unless it involves a multi-colored scarf that pushes your look into Kate Moss status.
The leaves are changing and so are my accessories. Scarves and hats galore for this southern girl to help keep me warm and look in season. Must haves: denim chambray button-down, combat and fringe boots, black…black…black!!! All black everything, but not really. However, black sends a message of mystery and it gives the impression of being a fashion enthusiast. Over the last couple of years and being exposed to the Western European style of things, I have transcended from being overly accessorized to demure and classic. This most likely comes with age and realization of expressing style without saturating one’s self with multiple trends. It is best to have a clean palette and layer on distinguishing pieces that make a look go from drap to fab.
