On The Fence

From On May 13, 2011

I’ve always had ideas of having some photos shot in front of a metal fence. I guess today I felt would be the perfect time. I ordered these Members Only latex leggings from Urban Outfitters when that trend first rolled out. I had them tucked away when I thought of them paired with this Cartonnier blazer from Anthropologie. And with these heels from ALDO? Oh, yes! They look like just another basic black pump and then you turn around and BAM! A cute bow adorns the heels. Love it. I have maybe six boyfriend tissue tees from J.Crew. They’re great for just throwing on. I was hoping they would get them back in stores, but they didn’t. The vintage tee, a similar style, replaced them. Bummer.

I usually keep it light on the accessories. I’m not even sure where the necklace came from, but I do know I was in California when I got it. I thought I’d try something different when I bought these glasses from Forever 21. I love the way the big frames look. The massive ring came from Annie Creamcheese, a vintage boutique in Georgetown. I definitely need to take another trip there in the near future.

Big THANK YOU to everyone that takes the time to stop by my blog. I appreciate it!

Cortnie’s Take On The Boyfriend Trend

From On November 25, 2009

C in BF Trend

The boyfriend trend is not something I incorporate into my wardrobe everyday. I love the boyfriend tee (seen in all photos) and the boyfriend cardigan illustrated in photo 3. I managed to grab each of them in at least 6 different colors apiece. Yes, it’s that serious. However, I am not a big fan of the boyfriend jean (at least not on me). As you can see the trend definitely involves oversized clothing. Pieces that are masculine, but are feminine at the same time. So here I am demonstrating how simple the trend is to wear.

In each photo I have on a boyfriend tissue tee from J.Crew, 7 For All Mankind jeans, and Pour La Victoire pumps. The layering piece is the only thing that changes.

In photo 1 I added a Cartonnier blazer from Anthropologie and a necklace from Forever 21. I love the grey and the 3-quarter length sleeve of the blazer. Notice how it also covers my butt, making it great for leggings and sky-high pumps or maybe flat boots to dress it down for a more casual look.

In photo 2 I simply just added a Chan Luu scarf. Scarves are a great layering piece and they happen to be another obsession of mine. I can’t get enough of them and probably own over 20.

Lastly, In photo 3 I added a boyfriend cardigan that I got from Martin & Osa. They have the softest cashmere cardigans I have ever felt! They’re so warm and the colors are great. I couldn’t help but to make sure that I had several.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this trend stuck around for a while. So ladies go out and grab some male-inspired clothing and make it your own!
