Huge Denim Sale!

Huge Denim Sale!

Run to your nearest Saks 5th Avenue Off 5th store. Today is the 2nd of a two day sale where they are offering 40% off  of denim for men and women. That's 40% off of their already discounted premium denim! I've purchased a few pairs of jeans from them including my very first pair of premium denim which was a sweet fitting pair of James jeans that cost me an unbelievable $40 .That poor pair of jeans were finally put to rest last year (sniffle sniffle). My most recent purchase from Off 5th was a pair of blinged out True Religion bootcuts in a perfect dark wash which cost $100.

They carry brands like Seven For All Mankind, Citizens, James, True Religion, Rock and Republic and more.

If you live anywhere near an Off 5th get your butt down there and cover it in a great pair of jeans at an amazing price.
If you're anywhere near Philadelphia, Franklin Mills Outlet Mall has a great Off 5th that's stocked full of denim.
I'll probably see you there.

Love That Outfit!

Keri Hilson Looking Awesome in Diesel Black Gold.

Keri is definitely bringin' it in this ensemble that includes a pair of Diesel Black Gold jeans. The outfit is so well put together and the chunky accessories are the perfect icing. She wore this to the Diesel Black Gold Fall 2011 Fashion show and she did them proud. Even her hair is perfect. I'm loving it!

Eva Longoria In J Brand Jeans

Eva Longoria In J Brand Jeans
Eva is looking awesome in her J Brand jeans in ink and in the arms of her new beau. He is Eduardo Cruz, Penelope Cruz' younger brother. She is now divorced from Tony Parker and all I have to say is Tony eat your heart out! I'm going to have to look up this idiom because I actually don't get it but there is no better revenge then looking great while moving on.

2011 Grammy Fashions Ho Hum

2011 Grammy Fashions Ho Hum

The 53 annual Grammy awards was held on Valentine's day this year. The big winner was Lady Antebellum with 5 Grammy's including record of the year and song of the year. Jayz won 3 Grammy's and Eminem won 2 out of 10 nominations. Esperanza Spalding the 23 year old newcomer one for best new artist upsetting Justin Bieber and Drake.
I was not extremely impressed by any of the outfits that were worn to music's biggest night. There were some scandalous ones and some pure crazy outfits too but nothing that made me drool and wish for a bigger paycheck like.

Eva's outfit was my favorite and then Mya's is my second.  I threw in a mix of the cool young people  who were there as well as some of the more outrageous outfits  and my favorite outfits worn by the guys.

                                                        Eva Longoria
                                                   Willow Smith
                                                      Keri Hilson
                                                     Justin Bieber
                                                     Adam Lambert
                                                     Nicky Minaj

Last and definitely least Lady Gaga wore an egg to the Grammy's

J Brand's New Earhart Pants

J Brand's New Earhart Pants.

J Brand has done it again. After the wildly popular Houlihans, they are, in the words of JayZ, on to the next one.

They have created the new Earharts named, after the famous pilot Amelia Earhart whose plane went down in 1937 when she attempted to be the first woman to fly around the world. Unfortunately she was never heard from again.

The pants are an updated version of flight pants and they look amazing:

Trendy VS Personal Style

Trendy VS Personal Style

Okay, so what's more important, wearing the hottest trend or showing off your creativity by sporting your own personal style?

I know how great it feels to be wearing something that the masses considers fashionable and makes you appear to be in the know but don't you get a bigger bang when you look awesome in an outfit that the majority of people would never have thought to put together?

I enjoyed the times when I went to work wearing an outfit that I created based solely on what I like and then a few days later I spied some ladies wearing a close variation of the outfit. Loved that!

This season the hot trends in jeans are supposed to be the flare legs and bell bottoms. Who the heck decided that? I absolutely hate bell bottoms unless they fall somewhere between the knee and the anlkle and I don't like flare leg jeans unless they are worn with heels and are hemmed high enough to see the heels but the traditional flare legs and bell bottoms are my biggest jean nightmare after high waisted jeans.

Am I supposed to wear flare leg jeans because some fashion guru had extra jean material and decided that flare leg was the way to go? Heck to the no!!!

Should people with gorgeous legs put away mini skirts because someone with stretch marks decides that mini skirts aren't in? Alright so I'm not absolutely sure how the traditional trendmakers decide what is trendy but I do know that Katie Holmes threw on a pair of Tom Cruises jeans and rolled them up at the bottom and started the boyfriend jean trend all on her own. She didn't wait for some out of touch fashion guru to tell her what to wear.

Go out and express yourself by wearing what looks good on you. Be creative and start the next sexy trend. Creativity is sexy as heck so do the damn thang!
