(Tracee Ellis Ross)
If I had a low enough IQ to sign up for a reality show like Jersey Shore...I would request to have Tracee Ellis Ross and Victoria Beckham as roommates so I could play dress up in their closets!

(Victoria Beckham)
This outfit is a hybrid of what I would look like:)

I went out to celebrate a friend's bday at a jazz club but got nervous because all I really own are "teacher" clothes. That's when I called Juanette (a blogger turned friend from Dallas) and she styled me over the phone. The only requirements I gave her was that I wanted to wear my hair in an "updo" like Tracee Ellis Ross and rock my leopard heels

Grace Jones Tee: Zara's
Jessica Simpson Heels
JCP Cargo Pants
Thrifted Tux from Juanette
Vintage Clutch
Earrings from International Festival

(I'm liking this hairstyle...it's a good protective styling option)

(Here's the fiance. Side Note...You will never see a pic of me with a glass in my hand...I might become president one day:)

I LOVE Traci Ross's style. It's always so chic and grown up yet youyhful. She dresses just like she did as Joan. I love when she wears blazers because they're always tailored so well. You definitely pulled the look off.

Mellodee said...

Loved the outfit!! Looks really good on you, esp. leopard heels...cool.

(Just a side note tho, the shirt was a bit (I'm sorry) creepy. I think it was the eyes sitting right there on your chest, they kind of follow you where ever you go! Maybe it's just me, but I think another Tee would hit the mark exactly!)

@Mellodee...That made me laugh! I see what you are talking about but I think that the creepiness made me like it a little more. I'm strange though:)

Juanette said...

"Puuuuurrrrffffffeeeeecccctttt" *in Strange' voice* Better than I envisioned, loves it! The whole look is FAB-U-LOUS! Totally gonna steal that hairstyle!

Moni @ CL Journal said...
