This week item of the week is the Zara long denim jacket.
Denim has been a favorite trend for quite some time now. Most stores even have a denim section with items such as shirts, jackets, skirts, overalls etc…
I found this long denim jacket from Zara’s I am Denim collection. Long sleeves, ripped details, and side pockets, this jacket can be worn as a dress alone or over different outfit as a jacket.

To me women in men’s clothing allure a certain je ne sais quoi. And let’s be honest, us women wear anything better than men.
I’m wearing H&M men’s long sleeve shirt, André wedges and Juicy Couture bag.
(Me) – “What time are we going out tonight?”
(Friend #1) – “8:00”
(Friend #2) -“8:00 Emma time? or real time?”
Have you ever had this conversation? I’m willing to bet a lot.
My friends always invite me out an hour or two earlier before the actual time. They so often tell me “Magdoos at 8” when we actually meet up around 9 or later. They even make jokes about it and call it Emma Time (rolling my eyes). And you thought Haitians ran late?
So why is it that some of us girls take longer to get ready? Throwing on a pair of jeans and a top, putting on lipstick and mascara seems so easy, right? So why do we complicate our lives? Trying on our whole closet before deciding on our first outfit choice anyway. And do not get me started on how long I take if there’s a special someone I might run into.
I have been going on and on trying to come up with answers to these questions for years and still cannot come up with one. Yes us girls are complicated at times, yes we like to look our best, and yes we always try to find the smallest, most insignificant details to complain about. When I say “I have nothing to wear!”, it simply means I haven’t found the outfit that goes with the person I feel like in that moment. It may be a mood, a specific attire required (Has anyone else had an “electric blue” dress code? I have… sigh) or even a goal (impressing that cute Magdoos bartender…wink wink).
At the end of the day, we can’t really blame women for this. After all, looking one’s best isn’t a fault right? Maybe we’re perfectionists, maybe we love the chaos of flying multi colored garments. Who knows? The importance is to remember to be patient. I for one, don’t mean to make people wait for my indecisiveness… Ok maybe a little 😉
We are loving this retro 90s style! She could not have worn it better with her gorgeous wild curls!
Here’s a great Fall look! For school or just shopping day perfect outfit.
Especially love the leather sleeves and the red gloves!
Have a fashionable day!
So we all know how sexy women find androgyny, and menswear becomes a “must” in our closets. We love boyfriend jeans, suits, bow ties etc. Unfortunately, our counter parts tend to think… well “Eww”. Here are a couple of guy clothes you can pull off all the while looking hot for your man.
1. His Tees and shirts
Oversize shirts are always stylish. They are understated and clean. Be it to stay home, or quickly throwing it on to rush out of the house.
2. His Jacket
Who doesn’t love to the phrase “Do you want my jacket?” on those cold fall nights.
3. His Hats and his watch
I personally love men’s watches. All women should wear them because they make such a statement.
4. His sunglasses
5. His perfume
OK this isn’t a clothing item, but the chemicals react differently with your skin, and the musky scents are very sexy.
This Fall, hats are big accessories and a must to complete an outfit. We’ve spotted already 2 fashion followers with beanies:

I might just steal this vespa and go go go!
Here’s a great look for the fall. Don’t you love how this fashionista is embracing her curls? We certainly do.
It’s that time of year again. School is back on, and fashion’s (well mine) favorite season is almost upon us. Cue the classic layers, boots, leather jackets, tights, etc.
Here’s one of our favorite casual friday looks
Cope dress, Zara bag and Tory Burch shoes
Fashionista is wearing Logo T-shirt “Ain’t not Laurent without Yves”, black skirt, and colorful long vest with fur lining from Urban Outfitters.
Wedge Sneakers from Isabel Marant and Celine bag.
“I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!”
Yes we’re all guilty, so don’t try to hide it. It’s very true that we buy nice clothes, but after a couple of wears, they feel old and you can’t match them with anything (neon prints??? laced bustiers? WTH?)
The key, as I have found, is to have your basics down. If you have durable, timeless pieces that go with absolutely everything, you always look put together and chic. Who cares if you wore that Proenza leather jacket to death? It looks even more amazing as it ages. “Didn’t she wear that pair of jeans last week?” Uh yeah, because it gives her a “Cul d’enfer”. Listen up people, you want to always look like you know what your doing when it comes to fashion? Well, get down with your basics and build around those key pieces.
