Paris & Plaid

Today Brittyn had an award ceremony at her school for Honor Roll. I wanted to bring out a piece in my closet that I hadn’t worn in awhile and I chose my plaid high waisted shorts. I thrifted these shorts last year and love the classic look to them.

I wanted to give them more of a dark look and pair my shorts with my ‘PARIS’ top that I wore on thanksgiving. Since the top of the waistline is covered by the top, I ended up pulling off a rocker tomboy look.

Kanye 12-12-12 Controversy: Kilt or Skirt?

Yesterday, Kanye performed at the 12-12-12 Sandy Relief Concert and had social media in a fury with his fashion choice for the night. Kanye wore a Pyrex Vision sweatshirt and Givenchy mens’ leather kilt and leather pants. Kanye’s fashion combo seemed to have to have all of America puzzled as to if it was truly a kilt or if he borrowed a piece from Kim Kardashian’s closet.

Now with any ounce of fashion common sense, you would already know that he does have a kilt on. Like I previously stated, the kilt/leather pants combo is from the Givenchy Fall 2012 menswear collection. In my opinion, in 2012 kilts for men shouldn’t even be a controversial conversation. They have cultural origins and have become a mens fashion essential to show off your fashion sense.

REAL MEN WEAR KILTS!

Beyonce nabs yet another PEPSI Ad!

Beyonce showing everyone she’s about to hit the scene again! Pepsi released images of Beyonce’s ad for her new Pepsi in 2013.

The campaign will coincide with a blitz of promotion for her next album, which has no title or release date so far but is expected in 2013. Sometime after she performs at the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3 (also sponsored by Pepsi), Beyoncé will appear in a new TV ad — her fifth for the soft drink since 2002 — and her face will be on a limited-edition line of soda cans.

The less conventional aspects of the deal are meant as collaborative projects that indulge Beyoncé’s creative whims, and might well have no explicit connection to Pepsi products.
The multiyear campaign is estimated at $50 million, the bulk of it for media placements and promotions around the world, and the remainder split roughly equally between Beyoncé’s fee and what Pepsi calls a creative content development fund.

Christmas Trees and White Tees.

I kept things pretty simple on Friday when we were looking for our christmas tree & decorating it. A white t shirt and jeans is always a classic and simple look,which is why I paired it with my Nike Griffeys.

(My sister Brieonni was trying to run through my picture!)

Holiday Style: Pajamas

During the holidays, the time shared with family and the presents are the most important factors. Just important are the pajamas you wear on Christmas, because you are being photographed and you have to always look like you just rolled out of bed….in chic and fun pajamas.

Here are a few styles that are comfy, chic, and fun pajamas styles:

Steve Madden ‘Cozy Up’ Thermal PJ’S: $58

Thermals are always comfortable and if you are in a cold area you can still use them underneath your clothing.

Nick & Nora Footie Pajamas: $24.99

I love one piece footie pajamas! They are so fun and make you feel like a kid again…one problem is that you can get really hot in them during the night.

Victoria’s Secret Flannel Pajamas: $39.50

Flannel Pajamas are always a classic style. And to add extra fun, you can always add a fun printed tank top under your flannel shirt and leave it unbuttoned.

Our 2012 Christmas Tree

This Christmas we brought a real tree from a family from Oregon who sells trees. They grow the trees all year in Oregon, then travel to Palm Desert to sell them. Since they were family grown, we were glad we could help them out.

They even had some sprayed white, incase you want a white christmas.

After we got the tree tied up to the Hummer, we brought it home and then it was time to decorate!

The theme for this years tree was to have a color blocked tree. My mother and I wanted to tie fashion into our tree. We decided to make the tree on trend with color block and found these great ornaments from Target.

Only problem is, we had to tie the hook on every ornament. Which took up a substantial amount of time…. We ended up making another trip to Target to buy hooks.

Then came the fun part…. the DECORATING! First, we had to string all of the lights.

Then came the ornaments, we started with red.

Next, the pink ornaments.

Then came the purple ornaments.

After purple, came blue.

Last, we added the green ornaments on the bottom.

Merry Christmas!
