This week, Beverly (our fearless Style Underdog), perfectly illustrated:
- The scrunched socks with booties trend.
- The 80/20 clothing/skin ratio for work attire.
- How to look hot-as over age 40, at work, in a knee-length dress.
- How to simultaneously (and seamlessly) give multiple shouts out to our StyleNation.
Rock on, mama. I worship at your sock-and-boot-shod feet.
As long as we’re rockin’ on, I must share a recent purchase scooped from Girlcrack Central: The Mossimo® Black: Women’s Faux Leather Legging. Yes, they are faux, and yes, they rock. Y’all know I’m not a fan of faux leather, but I have to tell you that this pair looks hot on, and the stretchy inseam panel not only keeps them from looking totally cheap, it keeps you from sweating your a** off. Bonus.
Skinny leather leggings are popping up in ads all over the place for fall, and while I’d rather have a pair of $395 Andrew Marc leather skinnies hanging in my closet, I needed a hit of leather, and fast. For $29.99, this pair served me well when I WORE THEM TO SEE GAGA!!!
Check back this week to see how I styled them and to read more about my lash fiasco and the fabulous Monster Ball that is a Lady Gaga show.
