Meet My New Favorite Scarf…

6.12.12 - GBO FASHION - Polka Dot Scarf 2.5

Why is this my new favorite scarf? Oh just cuz a) polka dots are like cookies: they instantly put me in a slightly better mood. And by slightly I mean significantly. b) what CAN’T you do with this scarf? Right? I mean surrriously. c) it doesn’t cost very much moooolah. Great price + completely adorbs = right up Shanaynay’s alley. And in case you were wondering… a) YES – these are high-waist pants that zip up the side. And YES I embraced their high-waistness, like it ain’t no thang. b) NO I did not ever end up going and getting a manicure, and YES I’m aware that I desperately desperately need one. c) YES these adorable lace-up-the-leg wedges (my shoes) were only $7 at the thrift store.

  and that be the reason why we call it MENSWEAR MONDAY! K, so sometimes you have friends who look EXACTLY like male models. And sometimes those friends are kind enough to let you feature them and their fab fashion-chops on your style-blog. And sometimes those friends conveniently have roommates who are breath-taking photographers.

Corduroy Button-up: Thrifted | Shorts: H&M | Shoes: Thrifted | Belt: Thrifted | Shades: Nordstrom   How would you describe your style?  My personal style is fairly eclectic.

STYLE CRUSH: Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie K

  Why do we love Nicole Richie’s style? Because she can pull off so many different looks, & she does a dang good job of it too.  Here are a few of my faves…   HIPPY | BOHO   CHIC | CLASSIC   SIMPLE | CASUAL Lessons Learned: Having great style doesn’t necessarily mean having complicated style.  I’m becoming more & more convinced all the time that it really is ‘in the details‘.  For exaxmpe: A lot of my favorite Richie Ensembles are extremely basic. But then add to that an amazing bag, a killer scarf, & a great pair of sun glasses, & suddenly it goes from basic to effortlessly chic. Get it? DETAILS. And btw, ‘amazing, killer, & great’ does not have to mean EXPENSIVE. Most of the items that I get the most compliments on are thrifted, & that includes the hand bags & clutches.  Anywho, I’m preaching to…
