50 Shades

Grey. My new obsession. 

I had this outfit put aside for the longest time. I was waiting for the perfect time to wear it when I realized that there's never a more perfect time than right now. I love everything about the shades of grey that I'm seeing in so many stores this season. That's one of the main reasons why I had to make sure that even in my store (FOC STORE), grey was well represented...

This whole look was inspired by my FOC detachable faux fur collar piece (Buy HERE). I knew that I wanted to find all grey pieces to surround it, so I started my hunt and came up with this. My pants are an old buy from the Target Phillip Lim collection. I love these joggers. Who am I kidding…I love ALL joggers. I decided to pair it with this SUPER SEXY cropped turtle neck from Rebdolls. Over top, this ever so popular Forever 21 Plus grey jacket was a perfect fit. I've had my eye on it for about two months now and yesterday, I finally caved in. 

Wouldn't it have been super dope if I had a pair of grey heels?! Yeah, well…the way my shoe collection it set up…I had to work with what I had. So, I put on my strappy black heels from Target and called it a day. 

Speaking of "working with what you have", I've been getting quite a few e-mails and DMs about how I've  gone about blogging and getting clothing over the last 5 years etc. I want to say to anyone who is looking into blogging that it is important that you live and work within your means. Like I said, I didn't have a pair of grey heels to wear with this outfit. Did I want a pair? Hell, yes. Was it the end of my blogging career if I didn't get a pair? Hell, no. Contrary to popular belief, blogging can be very expensive. Not everything I wear is handed to me by a company. Everything I'm showing you right now, I bought. Make sure that you learn to work with what you have! It's an amazing feeling when you can pull from your closet and recreate new looks from old pieces. It is extremely possible.

Tell me what you think about this look. I'm almost sure that it's about to be one of my favourites. I'm also hoping you all are well. See you soon.

FOC Details

Two pieces. Maximum. That's a little challenge I've had for myself over the last year. I find that the old cliche saying of "less is more" really does work best for me. I used to be the type that would wear everything in my closet at once. It may have worked then, but it definitely doesn't work now...

SexyPlus & Rebdolls

THEN there's "Not being afraid of your body". Another thing on the list of what we have to teach ourselves to do during this body positive movement. It's hard. I know. But there are multiple ways to exercise your boldness. You can get into yoga, you can join a pole dancing class, you can go public in your first bikini or you can do it the way I do it. And that's occasionally through my choice of clothing...

Work Smarter, Not Harder.

Let's face it. Sometimes you don't want to do all of the dramatics. Sometimes you just want to throw something on and have it work. Not all of us want to plan an outstanding outfit in advance. Some of us don't have time for it, and some of us just don't care to do it at all. 
This is why great staple pieces are imperative!
