She took my love, then ran around.








Keep away from this girl!

Whenever I wear an outfit like this (or basically anything that doesn't have a doppelgänger in the children's department), Kim says something like, "You little hoochie mama!" or "I taught you well." It is all in love and fun - we pick on one another. You see, Kimbly is the type of girl who believes anything that covers your butt is a dress and that your boobs belong at your chin. We tend to be polar opposites in many ways (bra sizes included), but sometimes I catch her buying girly 50s dresses (that you'd normally find in my closet) and other times, I can be found wearing a fitted little mini that's a wee bit scandalous. I like to balance it out with a loose fitted top. I really can't be bothered to wear much more in this horrible heat.

p.s. Let it be known that Kim is not really a hoochie mama. Like I said, we poke fun:)

  1. It's always fun to dress a little different. It lets you be someone else for a day. Isn't that what clothes are all about?

  8. Thanks, everyone!

    Yasmeen: I know, I am in a hair rut. It's pure laziness AND I need a hair cut. Also, the heat we're experiencing in NYC is ridiculous and I can't handle my hair down for more than a few minutes.

  14. L O V E this look. Especially the skirt. F21, really! Your style is amazing, glad your skirts cover more than your... cheeks and your boobs aren't pushed up to your neck. Just seems uncomfortable. =)

  15. The shoes really make this look! I also like it, because it feels kind of sexy, but not all here is my body on a platter. Very classy, and sophisticated!

  16. There's a similar tight-fit skirt from F21 that Ioften used to wear, but now when it's summer, I prefer the flowy skirt variety. But you yourself make one hot "hoochie mama." ;)

  26. I love how you're wearing daintier, shorter heels rather than stomping around in 5 inch platform heels that seem to be everywhere. Pairing the shorter ones with a bodycon skirt is just perfect!

  30. I always love how your hair manages to look sleek, cute, and effortless picked up like that. When I ball it up into a bun, I just look messy. :p

  31. hope this isn't a weird question (well, it is, but i hope it doesn't weird YOU out!) but, what kind of bra are you wearing there? or did you photoshop out any evidence of it in those pics? i would love to find a bra i can wear with a sheer white top without any weird lines, bulges, back fat, etc.!

  38. I love this. You have fabulous legs btw! :)

  39. i pretty much follow this rule - if one part of me is hangin' out, something else gets totally covered up. for example, if the girls are shown off in a low cut dress, you can bet your ass that the dress is long and relatively loose.

  40. mimi: It's a bra from Target! It's by gilligan and o'malley - it's just one of those seamless bras. You can still see it, though. Check the second picture for a sweet back fat display;)

  43. You make me want to move to NYC. I LOVE that skirt. Such a cute outfit!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really like how you paired a somewhat edgy look with very sweet shoes. Maybe that was the lady in you trying to shine through the hoochie?

    Also, I think it's fun to see how friends and significant others influence my style without me realizing it!
