Welcome to the Peacock Revolution

There is a war going on. A war against machoism. What is machoism? Machoism, as defined by myself, is the belief that in order to be a man in today's society one should be a dirty, grungy, obtuse, hairy, bare-knuckle dragging, neandertal. No more! I am declaring war on machoism. This blog will forge a revolution. A Peacock Revolution!

Join me in the battle against bad fashion!

A Rose by Any Other Name...

Greetings wonderful stylish ones,

Tonight I am going out to dinner with Shanequa and some of my other classmates.  It is always pleasant to go out and dine with friends.  Not really sure of the name of the restaurant; I just know that it is located in the Millenia area.  Of course this means that I have to dress impeccably.  I started with a blue rose and went from there...

A relatively simple silhouette with some classics: a tank, a romper, and a cardigan.  Add some statement accessories and there it is-a chic evening outfit.

As far as a color story goes, it is all about the blues.  Three different hues make this ensemble fit for a romp on the beach.  The yellow uplifts the otherwise melancholy nature of blue and gives it a fresh sunny kick.

The grey was added as my foundation color.  A foundation color is usually some type of black, grey, neutral, or brown.  This gives me a sturdy platform in which to play with different colors.  That and I just love the gloves and really wanted to wear them.

The oxfords and the hair add a school boy element to the entire look making it playfully sophisticated.

Cardigan: Banana Republic
Tank: Love Culture
Romper: Forever 21
Cut-off gloves: Claire's
Blue Rose: Express
Oxfords: Cole Haan

With that I am dashing off to dinner.

Back Online

Greetings style mavens,

Well, I am finally back! How embarrasing, sorry people I was offline for quite some time. Things getting a little hectic. Anyway (not dwelling on that) let's get back to the fashion. Spring's here and I have been enjoying myself; tanks and shorts are the name of the game. Not only are these items appropriate for the warm weather down here, but they are effortlessly adorable. *cough, cough* I mean manly. ROWR! I'm butch! Pair this outfit with chucks (preferably canary or sky blue), or a bold pair of sandals. Case in point...

The shorts are too die for, and I love the fitted tank. The owl necklace is part of my theme: the timenoids. I am completely obsessed with time this season. It always seems to escape me, so maybe if I wear pieces that display the time, then I will have a proper sense of the hour. I am like the white rabbit always LATE, LATE, LATE.

The shorts sit at my natural waist. Tucking the tank inside the shorts gives a bit of chic to an otherwise simple outfit. The simple black belt is the icing on the cake pulling things together.

Wow! Yeah this is a big photo, but it is necessary to see the shoes. Of course, if you have followed the blog you probably have seen these sandals already (I love them just that much!) You know when you have that favorite pair of shoes that you just keep wearing over and over and over again.

That's my strong arm.

Tank: Forever 21
Shorts: Forever 21
Bangles: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
