White Diamonds

You may be wondering why this post involving No white OR diamonds is called 'white diamonds'.

I sometimes put together an entire outfit based on a fragrance.

She's so glamorous I can't even stand it.

My husband brought me home some white diamonds last night. What a sweetie. It's the quintessential 80's fragrance really. I think everyone's mom had it. I have a very strong 'smell memory' if that makes any sense. This scent takes me right back to the 80's and makes me think of 2ND wave feminists with shoulder pads and leopard print wrap blouses under their power suits. It's all very working girl.(Not That kind of working girl-the movie!)

I do happen to have this leopard printed wrap blouse that I thrifted a while back and so I decided to rock it with some jeans and my 'mom glasses'. I spritzed on some white diamonds-and Voila!

Have a stylish weekend!

What a difference a day makes.....

You guys....I love my hair! It's so interesting how changing one thing can inspire me to pull totally different things out of my closet than I might ordinarily. The beautiful weather helps also. Today's look is simple but pretty freaking adorable if you asked me! That awesome handmade brooch was a major score for 2 bucks! cheap IS stylish!

Nobody puts baby in a corner!

In case you missed it, my last post was all about my love for an 80's meets 50's vibe. After, I posted it, I realized that I forgot the ultimate 80's meets 50's movie: DIRTY DANCING!!! This outfit that I wore on Saturday is actually pretty boring but it is very 'Baby.' I rocked the HELL out of some cut-off jean shorts in the 80's!!!

Here I am doing my best 'Pachonga" or whatever it's called....Please excuse my crazy hair! I set it in pipe made the MOST AMAZING corkscrew curls ever! I am thrilled. Today's outfit is also very 80's meets 50's. It's a lovely little sundress from the 80's but the great full skirt and the length are inspired by the fabulous 50's. I think baby would have worn this outfit for sure!

p.s. I carried a watermelon.

HELLO!!!??!!! McFLY!!???!!!

For a brief magical moment in the 80's everyone was obsessed with the 50's-this gave birth to some of my favorite vintage looks of all time. Think Grease 2, Back to the Future or Joanie loves Chachi! This little ensemble that I've whipped up today is the bees knees! I think it's very 50's meets 80's. I hope everyone has a super stylish weekend!

So cute, it should be ILLEGAL. And a Peacock!

We took our son out to the Zoo at High Park this past sunday. I had to post these pictures because we ended up wearing matching outfits! UNINTENTIONALLY I SWEAR!!!

Honestly though...this was totally by accident. My husband got my son dressed without even seeing what I was wearing. Psychic Stylishness!!!

I wish I could have gotten better pictures of this amazing peacock but the glare from the sun made it tough :(

I always knew I was a bombshell.

Hey check me out! Here I am featured as a "fashion bombshell" on the urban fashion blog
The fashion Bomb!

Have a great weekend and stay stylish :)

Should I Buy These?!?

I should right? Are they too much? Is there even such a thing?!? I don't want them to take over my whole look but I do have a trillion other pairs so I think I should do it. I just can't resist a cat eye frame!!!

Brows much?!

What is it with my eyebrows!?! I swear to GODDESS I feel like I pluck them every 20 minutes and still....pure BUSH. Ohwell. I'm really in to this outfit. It's simple but ladylike and it really says "Onika".

You talkin' to me?!!!?

Look, I love a cheap designer knockoff just as much as the next girl but there really is nothing like a well made piece of clothing to remind you of why that shit costs so much money!!!

This is a lovely Calvin Klein jersey wrap dress that I got on sale for 29.99 years ago that I love love love. It just fits so perfectly and falls so well on the body. The sleeves are so pretty. Today is one of those days where I'm really wishing I kind of looked like a completely different woman from the waist up. Sigh...whatever.

P.S whenever I wear a wrap dress I feel like Cybill Sheppard in Taxi Driver which is always a good look :)

The Sun Poured in like butterscoth and stuck to all my senses...

I took a chance and bought this top on eBay from a Chinese seller. I was afraid that the Chinese version of 'One Size' might not mean exactly what I was hoping for. It looks awesome!

Stay Stylish!!!
