Tuesday Shoesday

Whether you’re celebrating Tuesday Shoesday, Taco Tuesday, or Valentine’s Day…or all three, your style is a vital component.

pom-pom

Some may say the lingerie is the most important part of any Valentine’s Day look.  However, I’d of course argue it’s the shoes…primarily because half the time I’m not wearing any lingerie..

Whether you agree or not, Taco Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to wear something that makes you feel special.  Tuesday Shoesday should inspire your weirdest shoe obsessions.  I wore these shoes at the Fairmont Hotel and garnered lots of heart-warming awkward stares.

Here’s to wearing your heart on your shoes all day!

Happy V-Day!

Love,
Molly

Beer Takes Over Once Again: Beer Yoga is Now a Thing

screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-12-34-03-pmMy last article was about the invention of shower beer.  Now open your minds to yoga beer. While it might seem like a weird idea, it’s a simple concept to explain.  You drink beer while doing yoga.

Some people may say that there is nothing better than drinking a cold beer at the end of the day to unwind.  Some people swear by yoga as their zen enhancer.  Looks like we’ve now got a meeting of the minds, at least in Germany and Australia where beer yoga is an actual thing!

The founder of Beer Yoga, Jhula, takes this concept very seriously:  “We take the philosophies of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.”

Sounds good to me, I’m in!  Are you?

Personally, I think I reach my highest level of consciousness when I’m shoe shopping.  I’ve also been known to get a burst of creativity and an influx of brilliant ideas when I’m drinking wine, so…

Who wants to invent wine and shoe shopping?

Inspiring Fashion Quotes to Warm every Fashionista’s Soul

IMG_1298
‘Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.’ – Marilyn Monroe
I don’t know about you, but the success of my day is very much so dependent on the shoes I’m wearing! Let’s dig a little a deeper into why.  High heels help your posture; having good posture makes you look confident.  Looking confident makes you feel confident.  Feeling confident lets you conquer the world.  See the progression?

‘Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.’ – Audrey Hepburn
There are times I make my style edgy, there are times I want to be bohemian, there are times I want that wild grunge style, and then there are those nights I go for elegance.  These are the best nights.

‘One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.’ – Karl Lagerfeld
Enough said.

‘In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.’ – Coco Chanel
What I like to say along the same line is, “If you ever doubt your uniqueness, you’re failing to see your beauty.” – Me
Being different is fun, embrace it!

‘I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.’ – Lady Gaga
This is one of my favorites.  My belief in the power of sequins never usually went past its power to hold my attention and bring a smile to my face.  But the way Lady Gaga puts it, makes embracing the sequin, a lot more meaningful, and I love it!
‘Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.’ – Rachel Zoe
This was actually my go-to reason for why I loved fashion so much growing up!  Spoken words sometimes fail me, but that’s okay because the style I project can be much more powerful.  It’s similar to that common saying, “actions speak louder than words.”  I think style is an action we all take, with every choice we make saying at least something about our personalities, mood, or motivations.
‘Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.’ – Orson Welles
The most important part of this quotation is the “…not giving a damn.”  We all hope to create a style that’s attractive and puts us in a positive light, but at the end of the day, you can’t please everyone, and the only person you should care about pleasing when it comes to your personal style, is yourself!  Not giving a damn, is crucial!
‘To me, clothing is a form of self-expression – there are hints about who you are in what you wear.’ – Marc Jacobs
Self-expression is one of those topics that is close to my heart.  The best kinds of self-expression come in many different forms.  Self-expression through style, writing, dancing, skating, and how you treat others, are just a few examples of how we can express who we are by how we act and carry ourselves.
 IMG_1368
‘I can’t concentrate in flats.’ – Victoria Beckham
Who can? Seriously. I revert back to my statement about posture.  Once you have that great posture, and extra touch of height, and you’re feeling like a million bucks because you look like it, then it’s time to get down to business!  Leave the flats at home my friend.
‘Men tell me that I’ve saved their marriages. It costs them a fortune in shoes, but it’s cheaper than a divorce’ – Manolo Blahnik.
Hahaha.

‘Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.’ – Betsey Johnson
Thank you! I’m glad someone finally said this. Whether I dress conservatively or wear something revealing, ultimately I’m wearing it for me. If others like it, great. If they don’t, who cares? Dress for yourself.

Love,

J. Molly

Get the Most from your Summer Pastels

Visiting Coit Tower

Visiting Coit Tower

The summer is great for many reasons, including our transition from the rich colors of winter to the softer more feminine pastels for summer.  When I’m planning an outfit, I like to base it around the dress.  Choose your pastel color dress of choice then add your summer accessories: your white hats, your white sandals, your silver jewelry, and big and bold shades.

Outfit of the Day

Today’s OOTD is inspired by looking comfy and stylish, while also being professional. Throw on a comfy pair of skinny black pants, and pair them with a color-blocked crew neck sweater overtop of a white button-down blouse.

To take the look to the next step, pick your accessories wisely.  A big chunky watch with a metallic handbag are great, stylish pieces to make a look more fun!  For shoes, opt for a pair of simple black booties.  Last but not least, apply some red lipstick to your lips to add a punch of color to your look.

Shoes are a synonym for life.  The best ones are outside of the box.  The best ones surprise you. The best moments are created when you’re teetering on the edge.

If these don’t make enough of a statement for you, take your shoes to all new heights with these:

No, I did not photoshop the height of these sandals.  They are perfect just the way they are. If anyone can come up with a good suggestion for where to wear a pair of shoes like this, I will be thoroughly impressed.  I’d suggest avoiding stairs, bumpy sidewalks, and a pebbly ground.

Enjoy with care.

Make your Statement: It’s all about the Shoes

It’s all about making a statement this week.  And no I do not mean shoving a pie in someone’s face.  I mean wearing a pair of shoes that make random people you don’t know, say “nice shoes!”

Take a look at these beauties.

Here are some valuable tips from me to you:

You’re only as cool as the shoes on your feet.

You can’t fuck up a first impression if your shoes are in style.

People WILL judge you by your shoes.

No pain, no gain.
