It’s not easy being green-and black! The color palette I chose today reminds me of those shiny black and green beatles. There are flecks of shimmer on my black top that remind of those shiny insects. I had to flaunt my favorite shoes ever-special anniversary Reebok sneakers from Urban Outfitters in line green. They are by far the comfiest shoes I own, not to mention the snazziest! Today is the kinda day where it would be ideal to stay in bed snuggled under the covers listening to the rain. Thus, Bon Iver is the soundtrack of my day!! Tomorrow is the Naked and Famous show in Tulsa at the Cains! It’ll be my third time to see New Zealand’s finest indie rock band!

Did anyone else catch Lady GaGa’s premiere of “Marry the Night” and had their mind completely blown away? I’m pretty sure I’d give anything to live her life! What an amazing woman. She is my idol.
So, today is cold and they just forecasted SNOW for Tulsa in the coming week. This makes Callie unhappy…in order to beat the chill, I need to wear a tacky sweatshirt from my tacky sweatshirt collection! I thrifted this humdinger from the lil boys department from Community Thrift near Admiral. It has a retro Tom and Jerry graphic on the chest. I didn’t want to be boring and wear jeans with it so I paired it with some leggings and floral shorts. The extra chunky sweater was my wonderful Black Friday find from Old Navy for the low low price of $15! Any cardigan is a steal at that price! And it’s as soft as a baby’s bum!

Happy December! 24 days until Christmas! But I’m more thrilled for the gift of a new year! Today I am sporting corduroys. I picked up a pair of burgundy cords at work last night because I’ve been inspired by how cute they look in the recent Urban Outfitters catalogs. My only qualm with them is that they are super loose-which is a plus for comfort but it doesn’t quite hug my “assets” how I’d like, but I have a pair of cords now. Maybe I’ll shrink ’em up in the dryer! I have on a graphic tee from Urban from the Blood is the New Black collection. I love oversized Rees and how readily they are available in stores this season versus attacking every tee I have with the scissors to get that slouchy look-even though I’ve massacred a few tees already! ūüėõ

So I am doing a terrible job keeping up with this blogging business-so in an attempt to inspire myself, I am going to post an outfit a day! My closet is over flowing and yearning to be seen by more than my customers at work and the not so fashion savvy students in the business school. Winter has reared it’s ugly head in Tulsa, Oklahoma which for me it means I must layer and winterized everything or else my body will be on the verge of contracting hypothermia. (shiver). I’ve never been a fan of cold weather-yes, snow can be pretty when it falls but the ugly, gritty, blackened slush is not my idea of fun! But what is fun, is creating fun, thick, unconventional layers. The more layers, the more possibilities! So all you cold natured critters, get on those layers!!

Ah, Local Natives are warming my soul these days. The mellifluous voices and melodies are charming to say the least. I saw them at Lollapalooza this summer and was inspire by their stage¬†chemistry. I’d see them again in a heart beat!

So today I sported a leopard body con skirt from Target, and I layered the heck over a floral printed top from Maurice’s. Riding boots were a must for this ensemble. I am really into taking unconventional patterns such as florals and animal prints and mixing them to get something feminine and edgy. ¬†I’ve been on an animal print binge lately…ever since I’ve “misplaced” my tattered leopard shorts from Tripp NYC I’ve been filling a void until I uncover their whereabouts.

Good day world! These dreary Tulsa days really know how to work you into a fall fashion mood. Technically, I suppose we all should have been in a fall fashion mood in the Spring? New York was full of Spring fashion recently for fashion week!

Corduroys–can they be cute? Yes or no. The last pair I ever owned was when I dressed like it was Halloween everyday in high school. I had a royal purple pair. I might have only wore the bad boys once or twice, because they began feeling too heavy and soft and awkward (the pressing issue with corduroys) on my wee legs. ¬†At work we got in a pair of retro brownish-yellow cords and I decided to make them look somewhat attractive. I was in the mood to dress mannequins with an edge for fall last night at work. I’ll share them with you! I was awfully proud of what I created–and yes, all the fashions are available at Maurice’s this season!!! On another note–I always believed JcPenny never ran out of corduroy pants. That is the one store I have ever seen the velvety soft pants in stock. I need to run over there this season to see if my hypothesis is true! Penny’s sells the most cords?!

Cords! I dressed this one with a cozy fall theme.

This is my favorite I dressed!! The fedora really completes the look. Too bad the mannequin is headless to get the full effect....

I was trying to go for a more urban look. I'm kinda crazy about bomber vests, but I feel like they make my body too bulky. My manni wears it well.

The new Mates of State album is sweetly awesome and fun and lighthearted and my good friend Baylea is coming to see them with me in November–I dedicate this post to my favorite boss in the whole wide world, Baylea Smith! (because she told me she missed my blog posts)

I love Tavi. Her blog is inspiring and everyone should check it out! I’d love to meet this talented girl someday. Or just be her best friend, whatever. TheStyleRookie¬†Her lip synching is precious….but don’t get me started on my tirade on how I detest the blonde and fragile Taylor Swift.

I’d rather take Brody Dalle any day…god love that woman! mmm.

Brody!

 

 

Hey! I’m back! And it’s been quite delayed. Seeing as how I missed out on talking about Fashion week which was only several weeks back?! I should’ve been in New York City basking in the decadence and the art of fashion but instead I’ve been battling the world’s worst sinus infection and studying the world’s most boring material for college. Parson’s, want to take me in and pay for my tuition?! I promise I’ll be famous! ūüôā

Anyway, Kreayshawn is wrong. Basic bitches do not wear, Gucci, Louis, Fendi or Prada. Rich bitches do. I kinda want a Louis Vuitton bag? I haven’t decided yet. I’ve never been gung-ho about the “LV” on everything, but something about it has class.

Marc Jacobs spring-line is amazing by the way. Is there anything that man can’t do? I have a yearning desire to follow him around all day just to see how his mind works because his fashions are absolutely timeless–and that my friend is important to last in fashion!

Now, I have a confession. I spent $200 on Missoni for Target products. It sold out so fast, they had to start taking down the displays. It was a mad rush. I am thrilled that the line launch had such a massive success because it allows me to dream of the possible designers Target will team up with to make an affordable line for poor college students as myself! I’d die if Marc Jacobs did a line with Target! I can see his aesthetic really mixing well with the Target shopper demographic. Target needs to hire me as their creative fashion director. I’ll get stuff done. Pinky promise!! ¬†I’d also like to see maybe Miu Miu for Target? Mulberry? Ana Sui? ¬†Oh my lord or Alexander McQueen for Target?!?!? Bless his soul. He was a genius.

I was able to procure 3 Missoni tops, a pair of suede Missoni pumps, three pairs of Missoni socks and a comfy Missoni t-shirt style bra.

So sometimes I feel like I should have been born a Germanotta. Lady GaGa’s sister, Natali was featured in the most recent issue of Teen Vogue magazine. They highlighted her unique skills in fashion as a design student at Parson’s NYC. It was a refreshing article–and believe it or not she has some conventional everyday taste in fashion that could be more marketable than her older sister’s more bizarre works of art she adorns herself with on stage. I am envious of this family’s talent.

Missoni pumps!

Despite being ill the past few weeks, I tried to create some cool outfits. I love that denim tops are popping back up in stores! They're not as bulky as a denim jacket and light enough to layer.

HEY! The new Mates of State album dropped, and it’s lovely as always. It’s been a long wait since they released a new record. I’ve got my tickets to see them in November here in Tulsa with the Generationals. I just saw the Cold War Kids for the third time in my life at the Cains on Tuesday and tomorrow I get to see what craziness Katy Perry will bring to this sleepy city I call home. I can’t stop the rock. It’s like Lollapalooza never ended?! ūüėÄ

Holy cow. I love Missoni and the teaser for Spring/Summer 2011 video just gets me pumped up to put on my tribal garb.

I found the Nylon Magazine app for my Iphone and am in love with the ease of access on it. I feel so popular having Nylon’s informative fashion advice at my fingertips!

My pretty princess Belle had to join me in my photoshoot. She kinda steals the show…

I am wearing a super fun dress from H&M I acquired in New York City. The best thing of all, is the precious daisy pattern and the pockets it has! I am little too obsessed with my oxford styled Keds sneakers. They are awfully comfortable for a flat footed shoe–but surprisingly enough they have¬†shock¬†absorbing powers like no other. I have this aspiration to be a Keds model to get free Keds products. I think they’re too much fun–even if old ladies wear them. Old ladies are cool too. I’ve been on a knee-high sock frenzy lately. I chose the worst time to want to wear knee-highs with the muggy and scorching hot temperatures but It’s hard to¬†sacrifice¬†a fashionable vision due to weather! It is art and the world is my canvas.
