Stunna Shades

Hi remember me? I can't think of any good excuses of why I've been gone, but maybe you'll forgive me now that I'm back online?!? I've missed you guys so much!!!

So I've been looking for a vest or blazer with contrasting lapels for the longest time. I really like how they accent the collar here.

Photobucket

The vest only has one real set of buttons. The bottom four are just for decoration.

Looking at the pictures I don't know if an armful of bracelets really goes with the look. Maybe lose the metal and opt for black beads/stone accessories.

Belt on the inside or the outside???

I love wearing my glasses at night or indoors!! I feel like I'm on a secret mission or trying to hide from the paparazzi, hahahah even though no one cares about taking my pics.

I'm wearing a bow tie halter top by MM Couture, black lapel vest by BB Dakota over it, black pants from Express, studded belt from Target, Forever 21 gladiators, vintage black clutch, and assorted Forever 21 cuffs and bracelets.


And I want to make a long overdue shoutout to the lovely bloggers who have given me awards!

[[Update 11/06/09]] Omgggg silly me, I totally forgot to write 7 things about me! Soooo I think I'll list my favorite stylistas here:
  1. LOVE Lady Gaga's outfits and music. A lot of people bash Lady Gaga for wearing hideous getups and nonsensical clothes in public, but I think she redefines fashion! Lady Gaga inspires me to be more experimental and open minded with what I wear. Fashion doesn't always need to be "chic" or cute.
  2. Anna Dello Russo is always dressed to the nines in the daytime! It's interesting that she always has the same flat hair style and simple makeup style. Fashion and beauty are such overlapping industries, but she doesn't seem to do anything with her hair though.
  3. Michael Jackson! The jackets have so much detail! I could stare at it for hours! I wonder what it's like to dance in one of those.
  4. I've been obsessed with MK and Ashley Olsen for years! Definitely very effortless style. Unlike other celebrities, their most memorable outfits are almost always vintage.
  5. Rihanna is always sporting the latest designer duds on my wishlist and does 'trendy' really well!
  6. Katie Holmes & Suri are too cute...I'm going to faint.
  7. Japanese Lolita Girls. Seriously if I lived in Japan, I would be a gothic lolita. So over-the-top, all the crinolines, little hats, corsets, lace, ruffles, everything!
  8. I really admire bloggers who are brave enough to put themself out there!
[[Update 11/07/09]] Hahaha and apparently I can't count either...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I'm giving these awards to ALL MY READERS and these fellow bloggers! The rules are link to the blogs that awarded you, and link to the blogs you award to! And list 7 interesting things about yourself!

    2. congrats on the many awards darling ! you totally deserve this !

      and i think the belt works better on the inside. the shillouette of the vest is too beautiful for it to be broken up with the belt .
      i love the black laper very much !

      and those heels are killer !

    39. Hi Patty Ann. Thank you so much for the blog award! It really means a lot to me, and I greatly appreciate you passing on the award to me. It's nice to know that you like my blog and thanks for following. I always appreciate it when you drop by and leave comments. You always have the sweetest and nicest things to say.

      I like your outfit. Black and white is so classy and I think you wear it very well. The vest looks great on you and I think it's so cool that you can pull off wearing sunglasses indoors. - I also really like Lady Gaga's music and her fashion is quite out there but it does challenge you to keep an open mind about fashion. Great post, Patty Ann. I really enjoyed reading the random facts about you.

      I hope you have a nice weekend :)

    40. Don't worry about being away! I love your outfit. It's so tuxedo-chic - reminds me to that D&G suit that Rihanna wore. Love it! And I love the Olsens too. Their style is so unique (like yours!).

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    46. You're back!!!!!!

      This is a very classic black/white look. The tuxedo-esque style even makes it edgier too! I specially love the 3rd shot, you look very glam and cool! I vote for keeping the belt inside. It adds a fun surprise for when you remove the vest. Plus, if you have the vest on, it makes the vest really stand out because there's no contrasting element. ;)

      Congrats on the awards, so well deserved!

      And super super thanks for the comments you left on my blog. When I saw all 5 of them, I was so shocked but so happy reading all you said. You are definitely back!!!! =)
