We all heard about how sharing is caring in any situation, so nothing is better than having a good relationship that the male partner is generous enough to share his closet with us. Ladies, is your wardrobe getting boring? Don’t worry, hop to his closet and see what potential items he has, that would work for you. In my case, I love his button up shirts and jackets. Yes, I go shopping for him quite often, and every time I grab an item, I think of it as an investment for both of us Lol. I mean there is a sayings for it too, “ kill 2 birds with 1 stone”.
You know the interesting thing about fashion, well I should probably say Style, is when you put your favorite clothes on, you feel like yourself, the style is very you, and it basically energizes you and your entire day!
For this look, I chose one of his tuxedo shirts over a regular white shirt because first, it’s a slim fit, which means less fabric to tuck in the skirt and make me look less boxy than the regular dress shirt. Second, I am absolutely obsessed with cufflinks. I’ll never forget the little jealousy fire burning inside of me every time I saw a man with cufflinks on. I would think to myself, why do they get the privilege of wearing cufflinks and not us, women. Seriously though, I’ve never seen a women tuxedo shirt anywhere, but if you have, please let me know because I’m so buying it the next minute. Third, the Collar is slimmer and the buttons are hidden, which make the look seem cleaner than it is.
As you know, I love mixing different fabrics together. For the bottom of this outfit, I decided to go with a different fabric mini skirt (seen before). I absolutely love everything about this skirt, and I can say it was one of my best investments. What makes it more special besides all the cotton detail works and zippers on the outside is the fabulous lining inside. You know I really Appreciate good quality clothes. It can be from flea market or the Chanel boutique. The mix of silk and viscous (Tree Fiber) makes the lining super light, soft, and comfortable vs. some other nylon linings.
Do you guys remember the post we talked about embracing and highlighting the best part of our body (previous post)?
In my case, this skirt is perfect for highlighting my mid thighs since I think they are the best part of my legs. The back is longer than the front, so the sides are the shortest lengthwise, which means hiding the thicker parts of the thighs and showing off the skinniest part.
I paired the look with a pair of gorgeous velvet lace up pumps from Top Shop. As soon as, I eyed these beauties on the sale rack, I came to realization that love at the first sight does exist. The velvet fabric makes the outfit looks cooler, the thick heels and the lace give the look more of a feminine and edgy vibes.
