Who’s House…



Run’s House. Yeah, if you’re a Run-D.M.C fan like me, then you’ll definitely know what song I’m referring to. This week I paired one of my favorite t-shirts with a pencil skirt and mint green heels. What did I end up with? I guess you could say Hip-Hop meets girly-girl.


What was really fun was combining the styles to see what the result would be. Well, I was very happy with the result. Not to mention, I was able to wear my mint green heels which I could go on and on about.

Add a little leather…



to that bouquet of flowers. Okay, so not necessarily to a bouquet of flowers, but to a floral print dress. A very bright dress at that. I used to run in the other direction when it came to wearing colors. Maybe my apprehension was due to the fact that colors draw the eye. I of course used the excuse that black was more slimming, which it can be. But really, I was afraid of color and was a self-proclaimed hater of floral prints. Look at me now. It’s like I’ve gone from one end of the spectrum to the other. Still, I can’t abandon my edgy-ness (I know it’s not a real word). So as a result, a paired my yellow floral print sundress with a black leather belt and black leather platforms, metal studs and all.

The Beatles meet Little House



So a big part of my style is being comfortable yet unique, and I love pairing pieces that you might be a bit squeamish about seeing together. Although I love fashion and trends, there is a part of me that just wants to be comfortable. One way that I achieve comfort is by wearing t-shirts. Yes, I have drawers full of them. So the thought came to me; why not showcase a part of what makes my style just that, mine. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t comfortable in a pair of sweats or jeans, some sneakers, and a Tee. There is however a part of me that loves the pretty side of fashion too. You know; the different textures, colors and silhouettes (Gotta love it). So just like my personality, my style and love of fashion is multifaceted. I wouldn’t be honest about my style and personal expression of fashion if I didn’t pay homage to what has contributed to a large part of my wardrobe. So here it is; Tee’d off Tuesdays.

Messages are everywhere…


you just have to look for them, but sometimes they’re right in front of your face. Take for instance the fact that I’ve been getting over a cold this week and I was halfway through my bag of Halls (thanks sis) before I noticed the little messages of motivation on every wrapper. I think it’s pretty cute, and who knows how many people have been perked up when they’re under the weather because of one of these little sayings.

I.O. Metro…


image

Couldn’t think of a catchy title to represent the store that I’ve fallen absolutely in love with. This store is me all day long! The mix of industrial, contemporary, and traditional styles create an eclectic blend of comfort and style that suits my decor taste to a tee. See for your self.

Since I.O. Metro specializes in customization, I’m sure they could help me create the perfect seat cushions for this set.

As I said, they offer their clients the option to customize pieces such as the set below. There are various fabric options and configurations to choose from.

The manager was great. She gave me a lot of wonderful information which included the fact that new home owners who shop with them receive a discount. They’ll even come to your home and help you come up with a decorative style all your own. This includes art pieces like the one below, accessories, and fabric samples.
