Although classic with a twist would probably describe my day-to-day style, at times I love to just throw things together that have no rhyme or reason. I purchased these pants last year from It’s Vintage Darling and absolutely LOVE them. They can be worn with just about anything – funky, safe, day, night, truly a versatile pant.

Menswear Inspired

by Dominique on May 30, 2012

Sometimes you just gotta borrow a look from the boys and rock it out as only a woman can!! Had to go into the office this morning for a meeting and threw this on. I definitely stuck out a little amongst the floral patterns and bright colors on the metro. I’ve had this vest for about three years and literally just took the tags off this morning. This is why I don’t always follow the “if you haven’t worn it in a year, throw it out” rule because you just never know when you might be inspired to wear a piece you’ve had for years. I follow more of the, “will I ever WANT to wear it again” rule when Spring cleaning rolls around. How about you?

Texas Tuxedo

by Dominique on May 29, 2012

Seemingly patriotic and unbelievably comfortable, this outfit was perfect for running errands around the H Street Corridor area. While taking an afternoon stroll yesterday, I came across a cute pet boutique called Metro Mutts. Always eager to support local neighborhood shops, I purchased a cute zebra print leash for my cat Dolce with the hopes that he’ll accompany me on my walks. We shall see.

Pool Days

by Dominique on May 25, 2012

Stilettoesq.comEver buy an item then wonder how you ever survived without it?? Well, that’s how I feel about my Michael Kors Tote. I can’t seem to put it down! It’s just perfect for traveling, a day at the pool, running errands, etc. etc. Definitely a great purchase and worth the money. I’m looking forward to “toting” it around to all the Memorial Day festivities I plan to attend this weekend.
