As you all have come to know in the past few months I live for the funk, funky fashion that is and I love to be a little bit (or a lot) different. I did a guest post for www.princessdominique.com and I discussed my favorite things. I thought the post was so good and so popular that I wanted to share it with you guys as well so here are the things that this funky, modest budget fashion lover decided to share as my “favorite things”:
This did start out as a shoe blog after all.......but sandals are my favorite type of shoe. Flats, wedges, stilettos, platforms……I love sandals in any form!! In the summertime my faves are strappy flats and strappy heels but I wear sandals almost all year long! A favorite slogan of mine is – toes out til the snow’s out! Oh and peep toe sandals are a blessing from the Lord!!!!!
They are the only thing that I must have in my makeup bag……although I probably should have a bunch of other things. Lipglosses are the perfect balance between lipstick (which I find uncomfortable) and Vaseline….lol. My faves are Lancome Juicy Tubes, Tarte lip pencils and glosses and Buxom lip glosses. These come in a variety of flattering shades and aren’t too heavy and the lip pencils give me color and the option to layer with any of the glosses for deeper color if needed.
If you’ve ever visited my blog before this then you will know that I am a denim advocate, I love all things denim but I favor denim tops (shirts, jackets, vests). I think they are season-less and easy to dress up or down and should be a wardrobe staple for every woman, no matter age, size or budget. To go a bit further, I also think denim jackets are a necessary component of a wardrobe for the same reasons and they have the added benefit of being a layering piece for cooler climes and times.
I loooooooooove skirts!!! They are feminine and every woman can wear a skirt and feel her most feminine and beautiful. Skirts do what dresses sometimes cannot by giving a woman a chance to size differently on top and on the bottom. Sometimes women are not the same size on both halves of her body and a skirt fixes that problem quickly. My fave skirts are full colorful midi skirts (ones that fall a bit below the knee), but I also adore a well-fitting pencil skirt……..pair a cute skirt with a denim shirt, some cute sandals the right accessories and your fave gloss and you’re ready for the world….or at least the day!!
I know for sure that I have to do a part two of this post to cover dresses, clutches & accessories......hmmmm I have a lot of favorite things it seems!!!
