A Koople Of Things

Recently I have been thinking about what would be a good outfit for a date. As someone who is so in love with fashion and is not really afraid to try any trend at least once, I find there is a fine line between being fashionable and being what fashion ladies like to call a “man repeller.” My exceptionally good looks and my fab personality is intimidating enough, I do not need my clothes to be…joking. That being said, I kept it simple. Sweaters for night time were just recently shown down the runway at Balenciaga, so I decided to try it out, and I kind of love it. I was super comfortable and I finally found something that looks good with these shorts! I love the idea of shorts for a date because it is more interesting than the predictable dress or skirt but is not a “man repelling” piece. At least I don’t think it is, but who knows what goes on in a mans head! I pulled all my curled hair to the side, which was a major trend at the Academy Awards, and braided the other side to add some youth. If this outfit still repels men, then that man doesn’t deserve a fashion forward lady anyway!

bisous, Mack.

This post was supposed to be all about The Ohio State Buckeyes winning the Orange Bowl on Friday, hence the “yay we won” pose at the end, but now it will be focused strictly on fashion. As if I really knew what I was going to say if they did win! Anyway, for my outfits recently I can’t help but say they are inspired by Beyoncé. Cheesy I know, but if you listen to her album and watch the videos that accompany it you might understand. All of them are insanely sexy, cool and unapologetic of who she is. I tried to bring that casual, sexy and cool feeling to my outfit. The cropped trend is holding strong in 2014, so I paired my cropped sweater with a pencil skirt, which can be dressed up, but I wanted to keep it really casual. To maintain that chill vibe, I tied a plaid shirt around my waist, added a baseball cap and my favorite booties. The plaid shirt is from The Kooples, a French brand, it is on every corner in Paris, similar to our Starbucks, but for us here in the U.S it is worth checking out. This outfit is great for a cool Sunday brunch, to host a game night or to meet friends at a sports bar. When in doubt, just pretend you’re Beyoncé, life is more fun that way!

bisous, Mack.
