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!

Get The Look: Janelle Monae

Greetings mavens of style,

It's that time again. "For what" you say. For another "Get the Look". This time it is none other than the fabulous Miss Janelle Monae. So I browsed the web, and found this image over at http://www.theprophetblog.net/janelle-monae-covers-honey-magazine-and-talks-the-archandroid-album  Seriously, I Freakin LOVE this chick!! So, I will show you guys how to get the look...Oh wait, here is a uber fabulous pic...

Ok, so here we go...

Step 1: Ruffle Shirt
This shirt retails for $47.18. I love the feminine edge of the ruffles and the contrasting power of the black buttons.

Step 2: Black Blazer

This is the ASOS Power Shoulder Tailored Boyfriend Blazer. This jacket costs $109.53 Cute.

I absolutely love this Organza Blazer. It retails for only $37.07. I'm simply going gaga for those see through sleeves.

Step 3: Pants

If you want to go for a more elegant feel, then choose a wide leg pant. These beauties are only $50.55. Amazing.

For a more tailored look, go with a slim leg pant. These beauties go for only $76.99. Perfect.

Step 4: Accessories

WOW!!! That is all I have to say. Man the shoe is insane. Saddle shoes are a Monae staple. Retailing for $107.84, this is not a bad deal.

Even though this tie isn't as big as Miss Monae's, it is nevertheless a cutie. Price: $13.48

Well, that's it ladies and gentlemen. Get the look of the fabulous Miss Monae. I know I will.

Farewell Party for the CP's

Greetings style mavens,

A week or two ago, I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for a farewell party for some friends of mine in the college program at Disney. *sniff, sniff* I'm going to miss those guys. I wanted to put on something nice and cute, but not too fierce. It was Buffalo Wild Wings after all...

I will say time and time again that I am in love with these shorts. The ring was given to me by Fashion Pad creator (and best friend) Shanequa. *thanks girl*

Found this cute little number over at Forever 21.

I also just got a new hair cut. It's much less fuss than the previous length.

I had a blast with my friends. They got drunk and sang karaoke, and they took lots of pics. We also saw some of our other cast members/friends. It truly was a fun night.

Jacket: H&M
Shirt: Love Culture
Necklace: Forever 21
Shorts: Forever 21
Ring: Gift from Shanequa

Miss you guys!!!

Killer Boots!

Greetings mavens of style,

So last time I was telling you guys that I was returning the boots I got from Claire's. So I asked my good friend Shanequa over at Fashion Pad to find me some grunge boots that looked badass. Needless to say, this amazing individual found me two of the cutest shoes from Overstock.

As soon as she found these, I ordered them right away! I got the last pair of size 10 grey! Whew! That was a close one.

I love this pair as well. I am going to order a size 10 of these babies in black. Can't freakin wait!

As you can see, Shanequa is amazing at finding great items at a great price! (did I mention that the price for both shoes is $54.99) If you guys ever need to find something head on over to Fashion Pad and shoot her an e-mail.

Party Over Here!

Greetings mavens of style,

A few weeks ago I went out to celebrate with some coworkers at a little club called Sun on the Beach. Located in Kissimmee. No particular reason just partying with some friends and people I knew. Needless to say I had a blast and the outfit I wore was killer. However, don't take my word for it, look for yourself...

I absolutely love the top. I found it at Forever 21, and it was worth every penny.

Not really sure why I felt like taking flight. I guess an outfit that makes you feel great, makes you want to do that.

The boots were definitely fierce. However, they absolutely killed my feet at the end of the night. Never again.

Shirt: Forever 21
Shorts: Love Culture
Arm Cuff: Belongs to Shanequa
Gloves: Forever 21
Shoes: Claire's

Normally I can take pain, but the pain inflicted upon my feet from those boots was unbearable. Even to a pro like me. Take it from me everyone. When it concerns boots, always go a size up!

Dark Horse

Greetings stylish ones,

Back over at polyvore creating crazy and zany sets. This time I was inspired than none other than the fabulous, awe-inspiring Janelle Monae. I mean if I could just be an absolute fan for a moment. Seriously, I LOVE this freakin girl. She is adorable, stylish, classy, undoubtedly chic. Everytime I see her, I get excited.
*Whew* Obsessing aside. I decided to do a set in her honor. But before I do, I have provided a picture for those of you who don't know her...

Isn't she AWESOME!

Anywhoo, here is my set inspired by the lovely Miss Monae...

Next time I will have to do a Get The Look post.

A Cute Touch Up

Greetings style mavens,

As much as I love dressing up, I do have my days where I like to throw on a simple outfit without the fuss. So today I was feeling like throwing something together. So I headed on over to polyvore to let the simple creativity begin. The result is casual and simple...

Hmmm...I really need to get a small go-everywhere-with-me flat iron.

Made for Walking

Greetings stylish mavens,

I was back on 6pm searching for shoes. Boy, I really need to up my shoe game! It's really sad it only consists of chuck's, gladiator sandals, and oxfords. So, I really started wanting some fly ass boots.

As always I am never disappointed by 6pm, I love them. So I searched the sight and came across these beauties...

They are like some cute little buccaneer boots or something like such. When I laid eyes on them, I immeadiately ordered them. I can't wait until I get them. Hopefully they fit...

Arrr Mateys,
