What I Wore: Bring on the Sunshine

By June 21, 2011 Fashion, What I Wore
What-Fajr-Wore-Sunny

Well this whomps! It’s the first day of summer and the sun has decided to hide it’s lovely face from us after weeks of constant heat. What’s up with that? Well not one to let one monkey stop my show, I decided to wear a sundress irregardless if there is sun. Take that non-existent sun!

Anywho, this vintage dress is one of the few maxi dresses I own. It was given to me by my friend Angelica; it was her late aunt’s. The bright hibiscus print had me at hello and the bottom ruffle adds a cool and cute element. The color is perfection and I bring it out every summer and wear it to death, so expect to see more of it. Hopefully the sun will come out and join the bright party as well!

Excuse the stank face. No sun + No Coffee= Not Fajr’s Shining Moment.

My clothes don’t get enough appreciation. They keep me warm, shield me from the sun and keep me looking snappy! They make me happy when I’m down, give me confidence and feed my single-handed obsession with shopping. I wouldn’t trade them for the world!

Looking through my wardrobe, I realized that I not only love my clothes, I wouldn’t be me without them! All of the zany accessories, polka dotted prints and silly shoes, it all defines my style and who I am. In honor of my wardrobe here is a pictorial of…

Polka Dots 10

Polka Dots Anonymous must surely exist. Going through my wardrobe the other evening, I thought I must be hallucinating when I realized the amount of dotted attire I own. In college, someone once called me Dolly Parton because of all the polka dots!  Well itf wearing Polka Dots is wrong, I don’t want to be right!

My favorite piece is a spotted romper I purchased from a thrift store in college. It still fits perfectly and goes great with colored tights. Some people see stars I see dots!

Meet Brittany Deshields. A talented young woman on the verge of fashion stardom. With immense drive, passion and a unique design perspective her dresses are not for the faint of heart or the wallflower. A self-taught designer, Brittany started her eponymous line in 2008 after being inspired by a college fashion show. Since then she’s started two clothing lines, opened her own studio and has moved to NY to pursue her passion for in your face style.

With stars like Rihanna in mind, Brittany’s dresses are notorious of skin revealing sheer panels and selectively placed cut outs. She says of her sexy designs,

“I want women to not be scared. It’s ok if you want to wear your back out or wear sheer. It’s taking it right to edge.”



Being entirely self taught, Brittany picked up her draping skill by paying close attention to the works of others. Not allowing a lack of formal design education get in her way, she skillfully picked up techniques by watching the people she worked with and taking the initatitive to learn her own.

Working full-time on Brittany DeShields and her Love B.Des line since last September, Brittany says of being an full fledged entrepreneur living off her craft,

“It’s definitely fulfilling. Even if I’m not making a lot of money right now, I’m on my way to becoming great. Things are taking off slowly and I’m glad. It’s a learning process but it’s good.”

Inspired by the designs of Mark Fast, Herve Leger and Alexander McQueen, Brittany DeShields is well on her way to developing a definitive style and perspective and becoming a household name.

Seeing Spots: Lots O Leopard Print

For the past two weeks I’ve been wearing leopard print with almost everything. From my favorite leopard print blazer, a pair of leopard heels to my strappy leopard print sandals and pink leopard print glasses, a piece of leopard print manages to sneak its way into my ensemble. If my wardrobe could talk it would say “RAWR” in a Nicki Minaj voice.

Leopard print is so primal and sexy and while mags caution against wearing it head to toe, I say go for it! Since I’m loving and wearing leopard, here are a few ferocious  leopard print shots!

Are you leopard print obsessed too?

Every once in awhile you find a new designer who’s clothing is like a page in your dream wardrobe… or like a scary fashion section of your brain. My blogging boo and ultimate girl crush Marie from Agent Lover recently blogged her frock wishes and included Vivetta in the roundup. Well Marie is a girl after my own heart and when I laid eyes on these saucy sheaths complete with heart shapes over the the boobs, it was love at first sight.

Upon further Internet stalking, I am helplessly in love with Vivetta. The S/S 2011 collection has a circus/Harlequin theme with mesh illusion, polka dots, bows. I’ll take one of every piece please!!!
