being sneaky


I decided to drag on the weekend and bring comfort and style to the office. With leggings and Nike sneakers, I'm halfway there! Forget the formal button-downs and the heels to look classy at work: you can look classy and be comfy at the same time. You just have to choose your battles correctly. Office attire is always more forgiving on Monday's and Friday's. Those are the days you can give yourself a bit more credit and drag on/bring on the lovely weekend.
Always remember the Libra rule: everything must be balanced. If you're wearing tight on the bottom, wear something loose on top. If you're wearing loose on the bottom (such as joggers) wear something slightly tighter on top, or tuck in. This rule is obviously subject to exceptions, but overall, it's a good guideline to live by.
So, in this case, if I'm wearing leggings, my top has to be a bit looser, unless I wanted to look like Nicki Minaj *every girls dream* just kidding...
Another quick Legging-rule: treat them like pantyhose and cover that tush (and front tush). Toes are for camels and should stay on camels. Just sayin'. #brosbeforecamelstoes
In order to not bore everyone with a mile radius, I like to mix in some print to add a visual effect. Long cardis are the best because they cover the tush (see Legging-rule above) and they add some color-ish (ok, guilty as charged, this one's a black and white, BUT STILL!). this piece saves me from looking like a total vegan yogi (and there's nothing wrong with that) but I'd be a poser if I said I didn't eat meat. But hey, I'm Italian WHAT CAN I SAY LOOK I'M SO ITALIAN I RANDOMLY STARTED YELLING THE REST OF MY BLOGPOST.

time flies when you're in love


As you all know, Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and as always, getting a gift for your significant other is one step away from the tacky trap. Yes, yes, chocolates and roses for the lady and whatever the eff for the gentlemen is as common as the sky being blue on a nice day. Why not give something with meaning? Something that really says, time doesn't matter when I'm with you. Watches have been slowly losing their appeal thanks to the next generation of smartphones, having the time display readily available. But watches don't just tell time, they're a fashion statement. That's why I am once again collaborating with Daniel Wellington for this upcoming V-day.
Of any watches I own, Daniel Wellington are by far my favourite. They are big, they are easy to read, and they go with everything. Simple, white faces and preppy, classic straps make these an ultimate go-to for men and ladies. I've got a few DW's under my belt already.

I got you guys a promo code for an awesome discount that is good until February 28th of this year. Just type in "qualityrivets2015" and you're good to go!
The amazing thing about giving a watch as a gift is that when you love the person, it states that time is of the essence and every minute with them counts. And the other amazing thing is if you get them a watch and they break up with you on V-day, give them the watch anyways and tell them they wasted your time! BOO YA!

if i was a boyyyyy


Ever wonder what it's like peeing standing up? Wha...oh heh yeah me neither ew! Men aren't always the prime example of, well, anything fashion. One thing I will give them though is their level of...comfort. Forget the "Oh I just like to stick my hand down there and let it rest, it's comfy." What I mean is they look constantly comfortable! Thanks to their no-brainer look, guys know what's up when it comes to being comfy. So I took it upon myself to tip my hat to these brainless idiots that we love so much. Today, I'm all over the masculine look. My denim is distressed, my blazer is masculine, and my grey sweater is not my sweater, it's actually my husband's. A little white sneaker is perfect to wrap up this look and make it marine-friendly. My blazer was plain when I bought it, so I added these big gold buttons. Now that's what I'm talking about.
Please excuse me while I stare at these strangers at the bus stop and casually scratch my ba...never mind. But hey, at least I would be fashionable doing it!

Look at all my ranks! I'm, like, so cool, guys.
Can you imagine if I were the one giving orders (lolz)? "Now drop and give me fifty...pairs of shoes" heeeyyoooo.
If you want to pull an army/navy/cadet look, it's important to stay consistent: choose your accessories wisely and don't go nuts on color. Your base color should be black or navy to compliment what rank you are: in this case I've got khaki ruling the world and it looks great with black.
As for accessories, keep them simple, and switch it up. I've got a Heisenberg on but you can wear a bowling hat, a baseball cap, a fedora, whatever flies your aircraft.
You can also go full boot camp and wear combat boots but I like these little Italian booties because they remind me of "one pair of Italian leather boots, one vinyl record album, Bert Bacharach plays his hits, one Swedish-made penis enlarger pump" because that movie is still great after almost 20 years.
Aaaaannnd MARCH!
