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?

Hi-Lo there everybody!
I’m a big fan of clothes that can do double-duty, and I’m a strong believer in finding new ways to wear clothing you already own. You can’t afford to get that new short leopard print skirt but you already own a long leopard print skirt? You can make your clothes work for you.
I’ve had this mid-calf length leopard print skirt from Forever21 for a while. I like the subdued color on an otherwise lively print. It elevates the maturity of the skirt without making it matronly. However, a mid-calf length can be difficult to pull off. Not exactly as lengthening as a maxi, and not nearly as showy as a knee-length or mini skirt. Leaving it down gives the outfit a slightly Rockabilly style, and offers more coverage of course for those bad leg days. (We’ve all been there).
Wanting a more youthful, fun & easy look, I raised the hemline by folding the skirt in half and tucking it into the waistband, which I then secured by adding a belt. The jewel-dotted grey t-shirt helps keep the tonal theme going, and it makes my bazungas look awesome.
The shoes were a have-to-have purchase from Marshalls; they were marked way down (only $25) and I feel like I have an update of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. She may have knocked them together in hopes of getting home… I hope mine bring me to the mall.
