Choose your weapon wisely!

Whether you love them or you hate them, they're a fact of life, and there's no escaping it. Boots have become an icon for fashionistas everywhere. The perfect friends to the casual weekend look and the spicer-uper to the sweet sundress, boots can be the thing to take your outfit from just plain good to "Wow! I love her style".

So how do you get there? Well that's up to you, but I'll supply your weapons of mass destruction. You can choose from the killer heels or the macho gunslinger boots, but the choice is yours and yours alone. (*Cue epic music here*) Choose your weapon wisely!

Christian Siriano's back...

...and in a excellent way.

2012 Spring Fashion Week reminded me just how much I love him. Last mentioned {here}, obviously my adoration for him has not diminished in the least.

Pictures? But of course! I've got you covered.

A power suit in a power color with some power sunglasses and power shoes. How could you possibly go wrong?

A simple dress by most standards. But wait! What's that on those shoulders? A splash of (feathery) drama that Siriano's known for. And plus the shoes and the bag... well we all know I love me some neon.

Puffy, yes. Extravagant, yes. Over-the-top, yes. Would I wear it in a hearbeat if I had the body to work it and a place to wear it, ohmygoodnessgracious yes.

I like this. I like it a lot. Fitted and feathers gives this dress structure but still a playful side, a sense of joy that continues on, leading into the whimsical flowy-ness of the skirt. Oh I'm legit. 

 So... this is freaking beautiful. It's effortless, but yet, this girl got some 'tude. I love it. I want it. Now. If not sooner.

Oh the joy of looking at beautiful clothes.

I'm not obssessed.

What a joke, I so am. Literally, spent a whole Saturday studying in-depth, not for the Spanish test I had on Monday [which by now has been moved to next Monday because we don't know Spanish, but I digress...] but researching, watching, and learning about Beyoncé.

Some excellent finds, no? The photos are of Beyoncé, and are from Italian Vogue.
What a great day that was.

{For more information, visit Beyoncé's site here}

Oh my gosh I love her. Just released a couple days ago, and I would be lying if I said that I didn't watch it multiple multiple times in a row. Last mentioned {here}, Beyoncé's music videos be da bomb. Unlike LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It...

Seriously though. Just watch it.
Do I even have to say anymore?

Have you been keeping up with the kardashians?

If you have/if you watch Top Model, you should be quite aware that the Kardashians launched a new line for Sears.

Top Model pictures? Duh.

(If you didn't get it, the challenge was to model clothes from the collection on a runway that incorporated stepping on, riding on, and stepping off a quickly moving carousel. Quite entertaining...)

Regardless, get some Kardashian glam today!

Expanding your vocabulary

Brogues: "a style of low-heeled shoe or boot traditionally characterized by multiple-piece, sturdy leather uppers with decorative perforations (or "brogueing") and serration along the pieces' visible edges" (WikiPedia) 

Care to guess what brogues really are?

A few hints...
And if you really  can't get it now... there's just no hope for you.
Say hello to a new friend, brogues.

aka: oxfords.

PS: Check her out, rocking those brogues
