"Finally...your girl has got her Oxfords" - Tia
Is it a bit surprising that Im not wearing any african or tribal print? Im sure it is. I went back to the 50's with Janelle Monae and kicked it cat daddy style. Ugh, I love Janelle Monae, more than just her music obviously. Her style is simple black and white and bow-ties. The best part is she is a girl that uses such manly cuts in her clothes and turns them into feminine chic looks. I love that. Im famous for having too much black in my closet so matching these new Oxfords was not a challenge. I like looking different and mixing looks together.
Thats what style is.
Plus it was sooo time for a hair change....why not pin it up like miss Monae?
One of my favorite shirts that I own have these baby stars on it. When I was bored watching Cowboys and Aliens I was envisioning what to put the Oxfords with. I quickly thought of this shirt. Nice wide legged slacks and my favorite pinched blazer...
You have Janelle Monae.
I love my red lippy, so of course I girled it up extra with that...
Wide-legged Slacks: Torrid
Shoes: Torrid On Sale for 8.99!!!!!!!!
So I figured just because you have swank shoes that you usually wear with slacks, why not break the mold. I wore these out with some black capri leggings and my Los Angelus shirt with the same blazer. Im going to abuse the shit out of these shoes. Im wearing them everywhere.
No joke. I wanted these for way too long.
Shirt: Souvenir Shop
Shoes: Torrid On Sale for 8.99!!!!!!!!
Can't lie, Im feeling my hair like this...
Doing this look was pretty easy. The first couple of tries I had locs sticking up everywhere. I went on youtube to find my favorite "loc how-to girl"...and looked in her video gallery and sure enough, she had a great tutorial on how to do this look with locs. Because locs are so heavy it doesn't look exactly like Miss Monaes but....you get the idea.
Youtube Video Below If You Wanna See How I Did It:
I love this quick smoke eye stick from Hot Topic. Its for those people like me who don't wanna sit there by the mirror with a brush and just wanna run out real quick. Its fast. Goes on quick. And it was 3.99. On the bottom is the white highlighted part for your brow and the smokey black for your lid. You can put it on any which way you want.
My beloved Ross shirt without the blazer:
Okay, so I never got to post my pictures of last weekend:
I went to see two movies of course...Planet Of The Apes and Cowboys and Aliens. Heres the theatre we always go to. We shall be going back this friday...whoop whoop...
Right next to the theater is this amazing pizza place Lampost which Im sure I brought up from time to time...THE BEST PIZZA! I don't even like pizza like that but this place is amazing! Its Greg's favorite restaurant as well. Ughh, I could go for a slice right now. Funny thing is we always get the same thing. I get my individual pizza and Greg gets his Linebacker Pizza....
Look how huge that freaking pizza is....!!
and heres my mini me....
Oh these were great too...minus 2...because it got ate before I took the picture...
Great weekend....had to share.
Rose's Shoe Challenge:
Rose went on a little date night on Tuesday. Sorry to blow your spot Rose. Yeah, she's kinda personal but Im aloud to burst her bubble. She went to my favorite Mexican place in Virginia and saw Planet Of The Apes. Here was her little outfit. The skirt was really cute, she said it was pretty short, guess she wanted her boy toy to get a peak. She said if she bent over it would have been stars....ha!
Check Out Her Kicks Of The Week:
She got these in Atlantic City...
DSW Warehouse on clearance..

Can you believe that half these shoes, she is just now wearing and had them for months?
I love seeing rich california women getting weave, makes me happy...*sigh*...

Pretty Little Liars Emily:
I don't know her name, at least not her real one, but she looked hot in this...love the show.
Is it just me or does she always rock the best leggings? I hear these were 450 dollars! Really?

She can do no wrong in my eyes....
Why is Kim rushing the shit out of this wedding. I never seen anyone so weird. Yeah Im soo gonna be watching that 2-hour special. Im such a hypocrite but hey, gotta see what happens. She is already done the bachelor party and bridal shower...bitch already registered for a 900 dollar gravy bowl! This chick will be preggo by September...What a wack job...
I think that boyfriend is crazy too. Like he got paid to marry her "doo-de-doo" ass. Ewwww...
Has anyone seen pics of the new Catwoman...?
I love Anne Hathaway but...I don't know.
She is so cute but to be Catwoman you have to have the swagger...
I don't know..
Its gonna be hard filling Michelle Phiefer's shoes... (if I spelled her name wrong oh well...)
But she looks cheesy. I hope she doesn't mess this up...

Ending on a good note, Im seeing Final Destination.
I told myself I would pass, but lately the marathon has been on the FX channel and now I wanna see what happens. Plus Greg is saying he wants to see it as well. It might be a stupid movie but, hey...we can eat Lamp Post Pizza again as an excuse...
