OOTD: Menswear Girl

Someone asked me the other day how i would describe my style.  I think that's it's the triangulation (oh snap! I did just say triangulation, thank you) of three words - preppy, streamlined and quirky.  I love a clean silhouette and a good nipped in waist or collar -- but I'll definitely go for the weird animal print or strangely placed ruffle.

Today's outfit is a take on menswear.  I love the idea of leaving a tie-neck blouse to simulate a tie and shrinking down the vest to a size only a woman would wear.

I wish took a close up of picture these shoes.  I'm really digging the two-toned effect, but for some reason my right shoe is pristine and my left shoe is banged up like I ground it into the dirt.  I have no idea why.  Maybe the left shoe gremlin?  So odd. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I always laugh and shrug when people ask me to define my style. Could you triangulate it for me? Haha. (:

    1. LOL. I'd love to try! I'll check out your blog and get back to you ;).

  2. I love menswear inspired -it's such a chic break from the norm... -dw

    1. Thank you! I totally had to stalk eBay for them because i wanted these exact colors. Though those sparkly oxfords are super great too...
