What’s more expensive?

I wanted to show that sometimes you don’t have to pay the big bucks to get the big bucks look. I own both these T-shirts and this morning I couldn’t believe how similar they were… Similar except for the price that is. So I thought it would be fun to see who could pick which T was more expensive based on the look alone… 

Well the results are in πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Alexander Wang – $75

Bread & Boxer – $28

Here is what I can tell you about the major differences in these tees. The Alaxander Wang one may be a little softer. It does have nicer finishing on the sleeves as well. The Bread & Boxer tee is soft also. It may not have the small details like the Alexander Wang tee but I’m still a big fan. The Alexander Wang also needs a little more TLC when being washed.

What have we learned today… I’m not really sure to be honest. I shouldn’t have paid more for the Alexander Wang tee… I’m not going to say that. I guess quality can be in the eyes of the beholder. I myself like both shirts and if I know I’m going to get a little dirty (baby puke), then I’ll probably lean towards the less expensive of the 2. 

Get your leather jacket out of your closet NOW!

Why can’t we wear our leather coats right NOW??!! Most of us only sport our leather jackets in fall and spring. Seems like a shame, no? We spend a lot of money on these pieces, so let’s see if we can get a little more use out of them. Too be honest, I’m getting a little tired of my parka right now. Here is my favorite way to keep leather garments in rotation all winter long… layering.
Layering is practical in cold weather, looks awesome, and you get to wear lots of different pieces all at once (like leathers)… bonus. The key is to make sure you don’t look sloppy. Keeping things fitted will help you look cool.Β  The pieces should look like you planned them, not like you got dressed in the dark.

Dressed up and layered up

Don’t be afraid to bundle your layers up by busting out a heavy knit sweater of fitted hoodie (love the look of a hood coming out of the collar of a leather jacket).

So please be inspired to give your biker jacket some good old winter love.Β  Rock on!

Why a fashion blog?

So… basically the question is…why on earth should I have a fashion blog? What qualifies me and who will care what I have to say? These are the question running through my head as I write this. So I thought if I just started to write things down maybe I would figure it out… or not…I guess I will find out.

Maybe if I tell you a little about me, this will make more sense. Here it is as far as I’ve figured out so far.Β  Continue reading “Why a fashion blog?”
