No-Shop November

This whole no-shave November gimmick has got me thinking about a challenge of my own. For this month, I am not going to purchase anything clothing or accessory related. Necessities only. I spend way too much money on things I think I need, and am seeing my bank account suffer.

So this lovely month of November I will window shop! I will post things I am drooling over, and who knows, maybe by the end of the month I will know what I can afford and actually make a well thought out shopping choice!

Join me in window shopping!

First up: This amazing twill coat!  Twill Trench Coat from Riordan Roache- $179.99

Resist the Urge to shop!

Manstyle: and how Urban Outfitters can change your life

All you girls out there can agree, a well dressed man is the best thing since sliced bread. I mean one of the big things I miss from Europe is all the guys actually dressing the way a man should. That means, no basketball shorts with a t-shirt, or pants that hang down where they definitely shouldn’t.

Anyways, point is, I love well-dressed men. Let’s take a look at some Manstyle shall we?

First of all, all you girls already know that Ryan Gossling knows what’s up. So yeah, that explains it. Love his style. period.

Along with these guys… love it all. Guys…take notes.

So guys if you are wondering where you can get such wonderful items…..well that’s what I am here for.

There are many many stores that carry amazing men’s wear, not gonna ignore the fact ( ZARA for example…amazing), but one of my favorite stores lately has been Urban Outfitters. They have a great selection and variety of styles. And everything is just wonderful. So that’s a plus

Western Shirt from Urban Outfitters- $54.00

Baseball Jacket- Urban Outfitters- $59.00

Polka Dot Collared Shirt- Urban Outfitters- $79.00

Long Sleeved Plaid Shirt- Urban Outfitters- $64.00

Cropped Trench Coat- Urban Outfitters- $68.00

Vanishing Elephant V-Neck Sweater- Urban Outfitters- $120.00

 That would be a start guys. Stay tuned for Manstyle shoes, and other nonsense.

So this week was a fun one! First off, I was rushing through Target to get a dress for an event, and I met this lovely girl named Marley! I noticed her bold and cute outfit and just had to introduce myself. This adorable maxi chiffon skirt is from Forever 21, and I just love it! The whole crisp combo of the flowy skirt, with the collared shirt and red lipstick just popped in the Target shoe aisle. Love it! Thank you Marley, for sharing your great style!

So the event I was rushing to find a dress for was the Governors Arts Awards in Phoenix at the  Herberger Theater Center. My sister, Monique from Ouma, and I volunteered with Monique’s cousin to help sell parking passes. So of course I had to take the opportunity to    showcase the awesome styles I saw there! PS I apologize for the poor quality of photos… my phone strikes once again!

The first person I noticed was this crazy amazing woman crossing the street. I just had to stop her! This is Patsy Lowry, from Paradise Valley. She was one of the nominees for the awards that night and had an amazing and unique outfit! I found out that he made this whole outfit her self! Patsy, you rock and we love your bold style!

Next to the dessert buffet I met Sarah Morgan with the most smart and cute outfit! I just loved the cropped blazer with the adorable green dress. It just all flowed so well together with the short pixie hair style. I loved it all from head to toe! Thanks for sharing Sarah!

Next I spotted Dawn Dobras, the wife of the Shelley award winner Darryl Dobras. She absolutely rocked this Cynthia Rowling gown. This great color popped and was a great pairing with the teal flowered necklace. Love the way Dawn showcased her style!

Finally I met this great lady from Flagstaff, who was donning a centennial dress made especially from recycled fabrics and dresses. I noticed this dress, and just had to ask, because I knew there must be a story behind it. Her name is Holly Gramm and her Arizona themed dress caught my eye with it’s originality and unique design. Her and her husband own a local gallery in Flagstaff and came down, just for the event. Loved your originality Holly!

Don’t forget to submit your entry for the In Your Closet Contest!

Have a wonderful weekend!
