Blaximize is defined as a state of mind when you look in your closet and can find nothing to wear, so end up reaching for the first black thing you find which happens to be a maxi dress and you think ‘Thats not too bad’ and make the most of it 😛 Okay I totally made that up, but that should give you an idea of how I function in December! Happy Thursday folks! 😀
I love the idea of a jumpsuit. When I say idea, I mean it seems to be an awfully comfortable looking onsie I can pull on, no matching or ensemble-making required and easy to dress up or down. But the reality is another thing – a well fitting jumpsuit needs to have just the right amount of ease, not give me muffin top and make me look like I am six feet tall- basically it needs to have magical super powers:P But since that is near impossible to find, I will make do with this black silk one!:) I kept the rest simple – earrings, low heels, and a leopard print bag and voila I cannot recognize myself you guysss!! 😛
It’s become quite common for me to go missing for extended periods of time only to return with a random post! 😛 It’s just that I have so much going on here( don’t we all) and I am just lazy in general? Anyway the first day of spring came and went and while it is ideal to walk around wearing a bunch of color, the reality was we were drenched IN SNOW believe it or not and automatically my hands went to a grey and black outfit! Sigh, Will the real spring please stand up? 😉
This may as well be part of my previous B/W challenge because my gold silk blouse looks white( albeit a very dirty white) on here..:P I digress yet again.. I think I look like a ridiculous human penguin in most jackets but I do have a soft spot for a trench. It makes me feel like I have an important place to be at 😛 and less frumpy( I am looking at you puffer) which makes it perfect to wear when you need a boost! like .. today and everyday after 😀 Happy weeekeend!
However much we wish for things to be in black and white, unfortunately it seldom turns out that way – there are several large areas of grey to contend with.. poignant much? 😉 Anyway I was trying to come up with something clever to describe my outfit and erm..what do I say .. that’s all I got on a tuesday 😛 Happy day!
Knit maxi skirts aren’t really home turf for me. They can be clingy and highlight areas that have enjoyed abundance of non- activity 😛 But add a fold-over waist band and that changes the equation entirely.. take that tummy! 😉 Obviously because I was trying something for the first time I chose to not complicate things and kept everything else simple but on afterthought I did pile on a few chains to add some interest!Happy friday folks!
Blame it on the change in weather for this new series.. but everyday when I pick out my clothes I seem to gravitate towards black, white and shades of grey:D Not that I am complaining.. after piling on all the color, a monochrome palette may be just what I need, kind of like a cleanse after a major binge. 😛 Anyway just a heads up that you’ll be seeing a lot of B/W broken by hints of colored accessories! 😀 I open with this polka all black number paired with a slinky grey vest!taadaaa! 😀
