FOW

If we are friends on Facebook, then you would know that I’ve just uploaded a bunch of pictures from my trip to Chicago. Not to toot my own horn, but I was stylish while visiting the Windy City. 🙂 Below is my favorite outfit from my trip. I was extremely comfortable all day long, and received a ton of compliments by passersby.

FOW (Late #2)

I know I was supposed to post this last week, but I wasn’t able to because I was travelling. The outfits I wore during my travels will be used in upcoming FOWs.

I am in no way a fan of the Kardashians, but Sears was having a great sale. I actually bought 2 pair of the Kardashian wide leg dress pants, one in black (see below) and the other in dark red. What I like best about this outfit is how everything flows, even my wild hair. I could have added a bright accent color, but I didn’t want to divert too much attention away from the sheer blouse. The blouse is the statement piece, so  I downplayed my pants and accessories.

Fit of the Week

Let me start off by saying that I am no fashion guru. I am familiar with different brands, fabrics and trends, but I am no expert. For the past few years, I’ve been putting more effort into my wardrobe and how I dress myself. Some may not be aware of this, but what you decide to put on every morning, speaks volumes. When people look at me, I want them to know that I take pride in my appearance. I haven’t always been so keen on my appearance. It has been a progression. Nowadays, I try to embrace my own personal style without falling victim to too many trends.

With that said, I want to share an outfit a week with my readers. I hope that my wardrobe will provide some inspiration to those who need it. There was a time that I was looking to others for a fashion sense, but eventually, I found my own.

I have to add this disclaimer before I talk about my outfit below. I am in no way a baller; I recycle my closet often, sale shop and go thrifting. However, I found that since I lost weight, I’ve had to shop a little more. With that said, you’re able to dress well with minimal money and with the things you already own.
