Long-Line Lumberjack.

by Jamila Pierre

OK, so as much as I love wearing these glasses on my face (despite how on the fence I may be about whether they flatter me or not, from time to time), I'm actually becoming more and more obsessed with donning them atop my head. I just like the goggle effect it's giving me without being overly goggle-like....or did I just nail it and put that in your head and make you totally see nothing but goggles now, turning it into absolutely goggles from goggle-like...?

Anyway, I just dig it now and again.

Lets dig deeper into contrast. 

Here we have me with the "goggles" on, I look different right? I like it just the same. I also like the change in backdrop and the contrast between a motorcycling lumberjack, and a chic....you fill in the blanks. 

The juxtaposition between hard and soft or "boy" and "girl", is always a good thing...it's always a GOOD thing. So having this slightly faded, ready to chop all the wood in the land...ready to yell TIMBER on that ass, mixed with a flowing and pliable (yet solid and heavy) long-lined vest, and these primo shades/ "goggles" (lmfao)......? Just good. And the bling of choice bridges the gap between both worlds effortlessly. 

Ooooop, I switched it up on 'em, lol. The background doesn't really go with the attire as well as the others but it was at my disposal so I went for it any ole way. I can however appreciate the background with my top...just saying. 

I just love this top, it's unfortunate that it can't be found anymore online, but I'll do my best to try and find some comparable items so that you can get something close to my look, if you so please.


Let us take a moment to appreciate the absence of gravity and then it's return all in one shot. All of jiggly bits were definitely being pulled in different directions for many of the takes, even for this one, and if it were shot from the profile you'd be in for a sight. I love it, granted it's a shot of my landing, but I love it! I really shouldn't even be doing this but I'm stubborn and I couldn't resist the moment to take back a piece of who lives inside of this chronically ill person. You just have to do it sometimes.

Totes Amaze.

"Sometimes a whole outfit is based around a solitary accessory, this was one of those times." -Jamila Pierre

During Christmas of last year my main Bish gifted me this brushed silver wristlet wallet from target, with (so corny it's kinda cute)  embossed lettering on the front. At the time I was absolutely obsessed with finding accessories with raised lettering (let's face it...I'm still obsessed).

When I saw this cute little gem I was like...Biiiiiiiitch, I NEED THIS!!! My home skillet naturally obliged, but she cruelly wouldn't let me have it until Christmas...which was weeks away.

I was crazy anticipating this wristlet and then when I finally got it...I didn't break it out, much less for the bloggity, until right now (I'm a crazy person, it's official). 

Soooo when I finally did decide to bust this baby out I knew I wanted it to be the base, then I stacked everything else on top like legos and built my fit.

I hadn't rocked one of my most awesome blazers (with the ombred speckles) in a hot minute. I also hadn't ever worn this sleeveless color-blocked top in black and white either (you can't see the top part where the white is because there's a bunch of FAIL going on here, my hair is in the way). I also paired it with none other than my MYNT1972 skirt..because it's BAAAWWWSSSSE, and the newest member of the NaughtCouture famiglia...my minimalist wedge bad boys.  Lastly, you know ya girl had to don her trusty shades, red lip, and signature jewels.

What I'm Wearing:

  1. Blazer from Target.com. $39.99
  2. Sleeveless top from Target.com. $10
  3. Necklace from wholesale district. $5
  4. Bracelet from Burlington Coat Factory. $7
  5. MYNT1972 skirt from Shop & Swap. ($30)
  6. Minimalist Wedge from OldNavy.com. $11 (On Sale)

All in all I think this outfit is Totes Amaze! What do you think? Do you base your look around an accessory, tell me about it? How would you have done this look?
