À la carte

20 Nov

Here’s the skinny- I finally got a camera! Since April I have been taking all my pictures with my cellular trying to justify purchasing another camera after destroying two has been pretty hard till now. Thanks to my haggling skills I was able to get a camera on sale with free accessories.

I’ve been getting a rather hefty amount of requests from readers for me to do a look of the day. However, I don’t think I can commit to it, I think it would add pressure to me getting dressed daily. When it comes to me getting dressed I am already late to everything so having to actually think about what to wear would only slow me down. I like my looks to happen organically though I want to please my readers therefore whenever I really like a look I put together I will post it.

Here’s the catch, I want to add a new element to the site where I can mix my daily look with street style of others.

“À La Carte” is the name of the section I will feature my look of the day in addition to other sleek people I run into I will photograph them and add their looks to the site. The French phrase à la carte means according to the menu in reference to a menu of items priced and ordered separately i.e. my complete look. I will list the designer and price of each ensemble.

After church I decided to play with my new camera. I also liked the way my nipples looked in this top.

Scarf: Kohl’s 9.99
Shirt: Zara 29.99
Slacks: Calvin Klein 24.99
Blazer: Calvin Klein 49.99 (It made me look fat that’s why I’m not wearing it.)
Shoes: Zara 90.00
