Gold is such a statement piece whether it’s jewelry or clothing. Try finding the right shade and you’ve got yourself a problem. I actually really like the gold looks that came out for the 2014 season.

Fashion Forward: Style With A Scarf

2014 is an interesting time for men's fashion. The trends that have graced the runways are definitely bold and daring. There are a few that I would actually rock myself.

Cozy In Your Blanket:

I like this trend a lot actually since I’m not a fan of the cold. Knit me a scarf if you want but I’ll take a warm blanket. Totally awesome! Blanket scarves are a new alternative, versatile and go with every style imaginable. Try it with suit.

Scarves:

I love scarves like that

Extra long, patterned and oozing colors. A must try accessory if you feel the blanket scarves are too much for you to handle. A little easier to adapt to daily lifestyle, worn with a sweater or become more casual when worn over a coat. To infinity and beyond with your scarf.

Style Is Primarily A Matter Of Instinct….

I couldn’t agree with that statement anymore. Style is really all about knowing your personality, your body and what works for you. If you know something doesn’t work for you, it’s about finding a way to make it work for you! Gathering your ideas on how to recreate something that gave you inspiration is vital to making yourself stylish and trendy, yet still be an individual and not looking as if you are a follower of the trend.

I find that it’s equally important to stand out in whatever city you live in. Yes, it’s easy to run off to another city and find a connection there and call it a day. What’s the challenge in that? Isn’t a bigger challenge to standout and create a buzz for your own style in the city that you live in at the moment? Why take the easy road and blend in when you can challenge yourself to standout and be heard in your city now? Well, that’s what Rachè Miller the owner of  http://www.shopadrionnedanielle.com did.

I stumbled upon the site because of twitter but if you google you definitely see a lot of information about her. In fact, even Diamond from the now defunct Crime Mob was spotted wearing when one of her pieces. Realizing that she destined  for fashion at the early age of 12, she was watching the older kids in her school set themselves apart from each other with their style. Grasping that concept she realized that she needed  to set the trends.

Moving to the Nashville area from North Carolina was the first step that was  to begin this evolution in style. What I really like about the site is that the pieces are unique and  pieced together to show that individual’s personal sense of style. If you notice on the site there are pieces such as the studded wedge ankle boots…

I really think that this girl has a good thing going and with more and more pieces coming through, it’s pretty clear that she knows what she is doing. Definitely check out www.shopadrionnedanielle.com. Items do change quickly be sure to act fast. I took a look just a few minutes ago and there is a really cool “Brass Knuckle iPhone Case” just in time for a small holiday gift!!

Studs for Your Wedges

Long Heels, Red Bottoms

Long Heels, Red Bottoms

I absolutely love shoes. They make you feel great. They can make or break a look. I own way more shoes than I probably should. I’m a hoarder of shoes, you could probably say. I love every shoe that I own….even if I haven’t worn some of them at all since purchasing.

I became obsessed with the hidden wedge sneaker look. I bought a pair of the Steve Madden’s just because one day. I actually wear them a lot. It was the best purchase ever. They give you height but you can’t tell it’s a heel. AMAAAAAZZZZZING!!!!!!!! However, I then saw the Guiseppe Zanotti and Isabel Marant versions and wished that I had saved for those instead. Then again “It’s Not About The Label,How You Wear It!”

I was on Barneys.com on Sunday morning and I think I was looking in the handbag section. There on the sidebar was a shoe and I thought I’ll take a gander at shoes. I’m one of those really fortunate boys that has a shoe size that translates well into a women’s size. So off I went to to look at shoes. There staring back at me in all of it’s FIERCENESS:

I actually am a big fan of shoes like this. They are grown up sneaks!! The really cool thing about this shoe is all the different ways that you are allowed to wear it.

For instance, you can wear it up high by unfolding the suede wrap around straps to create a really cool look with a  pair of cigarette pants or leggings(for a girl, or a really fashionably daring gay man)

I really like the contrast of suede and leather along with distressed nature of the shoes soles.

I’m really just beyond obsessed with these shoes. I love sneakers and I think this is a really cool way of growing up from sneakers to SNEAKERS!

Pair this baby with a drop crotch pants and a cropped jacket….FIERCE!

If You Read The Blog, Buy Me A Pair!

Anyways, somehow the formatting got messed up. That’s annoying but these shoes I mean they are awesome. This brand is really  spectacular. I’m able to see my personality shine through in these shoes when I look at them. That’s important when buying a shoe because it really completes the look. It almost even creates the look. I wish the brand much success and I’m sure she’ll have no problem finding that if she’s only 22 and receiving such a buzz!!!
