Classic Style With a Twist

Yesterday, I attended a runway show. For more on that, stop by my corner of Delux Magazine later this week for coverage.


Blazer—Philosophy | similar

Pants—Banana Republic


Clutch—Aldo (old) | H&M option

Earrings—House of Harlow

Necklaces—Handmade in Cameroon (gift from ChouChou)

Watch—Michael Kors

Lip—Mac “Carmine Rouge” lipstick, Mac “Brick” lip pencil

Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha 

I knew I wanted to wear my new J.Crew pumps to the event, so I styled this very classic look featuring a blazer and slim pants to allow the pumps and other accessories to stand out. The look is classic with a twist. Talking about style, find out more about how I think about my personal style in this cool article on You Look Fab. I’m so honored to be featured.

One of the things I love most about blogging is it connects me to fashion enthusiasts all over the world. In today’s look, I’m wearing a couple handmade, beaded necklaces from Cameroon. The necklaces are gifts from my friend, ChouChou, who is an excellent ambassador to her country. See Cameroon through her eyes by visiting her on Instagram and tumblr. You will be wowed!

The J.Crew Elsie fabric d’Orsay pumps are now under $100 (orig. $298). Isn’t the print on these pumps stunning? According to J.Crew, the fabric used to make these shoes is from an Italian mill known for its unique designs. If you wanted a pair, keep checking the site for pop backs in your size.

The Banana Republic sloan-fit textured slim ankle pants in chambray is on sale in-store. And, of course, sale is on sale at Banana Republic. Last weekend, I believe the additional discount on sale items was 50%. These pants are a great classic style that fit well. Click through the link to read all the rave reviews.


 Rings—J.Crew (love this new style), Gorjana
