NEW POST: Holy Chic!
I am a sucker for a theme. Everything from over-the-top concepts (I once threw a stereotype party where everyone had to come as a stereotypical something; I was a stereotypical “Rock of Love” contestant. Ed. note, does anyone even remember that show?) to simpler themes, I’m your gal that you can count on to be flawlessly on theme.
So, when I was invited to a black & white themed rooftop party, you best believe I brought it. With the exception of my red hair and lips (and my hot pink toe nails), I was B&W’d out. I even gave myself a B&W mani, just to be safe.
These pants are beyond comfy and effortlessly stylish. I love their tiny bird pattern; its an unexpected twist on a somewhat more casual silhouette. I paired it with a graphic crop top (I am all about crop tops this summer!), which showed just an occasional peek of skin.
This dress makes me want to stand at attention and salute. Something about the high-neck collar, seaming details, and shiny gold buttons on an all black background subtly scream “military” at me. (Subtle screams are a thing, right?)
I don’t remember if it was rainy out, or if I was just having a noir mood day, but I went totally monochrome with my raven-hued ensemble. While I’m a color freak (I do love me some neon), sometimes I love wearing an entirely ebony outfit because it really highlights my flame-colored hair and I feel like a bad-ass cartoon superhero.
Just call me fashion woman! (No, that’s terrible.)
Call me P.S.! I may always be late, but I bring the fashion to people of all sizes and shapes! You too can have confidence and style and look good, thanks to the power of P.S.!

Oh the weather outside is frightful… but this outfit is so delightful…
And comfy. And cozy. And warm.
I will admit that the majority of my outfits are not based in comfy-ness or coziness, but due to the nippy weather I threw all of my outfit guidelines out the window and snuggled up in the biggest, brightest and softest sweater I own.
The distressed torrid stiletto skinny jeans are a recent gift, and they fit into the dressed down/but not dressed down feeling I was going for. Their rips are expertly placed, and they hit at a slightly sexy ankle length. (Remember when a woman’s ankle was considered scandalous? Me either, but I’ve heard such stories…).
I threw on a knit cap to help keep out the chill (I’ve always heard you lose the most heat from your head, but that might just be an old wives tale), and I grabbed my trusty Remi & Emmy snakeskin print hobo bag. This bag is fantastic; not only does the neutral shade go with everything, it’s deceptively large and has been immensely helpful during fashion week.
And I’m mesmerized by my glittery Dolce Vita bow flats; they remind me of a modern version of Dorothy’s ruby slippers. I wonder if I click them together three times if they’ll transport me to a wonderful place filled with warm weather.

They say less is more (I usually feel that more is more, but I digress…), so this is my attempt to experience how less exactly is more… While I pared down my typical piles of bangles and rings, and trekked outside sans shoes (Shoeless! What?), I did accessorize my outfit with *ahem* two big accessories…
So what do you think? Is less really more? Or do you prefer my jumbles of jewels, funky footwear and lotsa layers?
