So my fascination with menswear continues. As you may already know, I enjoy taking menswear pieces and sporting them in an ultra feminine fashion. From the time we're little it's engrained in our minds that we are girls and therefore should be partial to pink and all of the color variations in that family. So what better way to make this masculine piece read as feminine then by wearing in audacious hot pink?

To keep things authentic I picked up an actual men's bow tie (no clip-on here) from the men's department at Macy's and threw on an equally audacious Pepto-Bismol colored cardigan over a standard white button up and Voilà... I completely emasculated this bow tie and had a grand ol' time doing it. So what do you guys think?  Could I make some power moves in this?





test kitchen imageSome times I get an idea for an outfit and it looks absolutely stunning in my head. Oftentimes, things turn out just as I envisioned and my idea looks great and sometimes umm... not so much. No real biggie. I usually just make few adjustments and rock an alternate version of my idea.

So here's my test kitchen. Basically, it’s just a visual representation of what's going on in my head so I can see it and get a better idea of how things will look when I pull all of the elements together thereby avoiding a ton of adjustments later on.

Now, I'm calling this my professor look. The objective is to create a look that gives off the aura of a distinguished professor. And what says, "I'm a professor" better than a smart tweed jacket and jeans? Sure some valid credentials and some actual students might say it too,  but whatever, let's not nitpick. It's all about the style here and I'm looking forward to putting this one together. I'll let you know how things turn out.
