casual chic

Monday, September 24, 2012

You know that feeling when you put an outfit together and even before looking in the mirror, you know you got this? Yes, this outfit did that for me. There is nothing I love more than a casual chic outfit which always includes a variation of denim, blazer, belt and sky high shoes (preferably comfortable ones). Mandy (bestie, business partner, full time photographer) and I had so much fun shooting this outfit at our new favorite spot - the new Vancouver WA library. And even more fun when I needed a black cami and without hesitation she strips and gives me hers (did I mention shes like a size 12 on top and she purchased this space age cami with a built in spanx??!!!! Lord help me I was a sausage!!) and the result was her wearing my size 24 tank that swallowed her whole...hey, it's all about the shot/outfit! That's a true friend.


Figure out a way to utilize those glam-fabulous pinup sunglasses with my non-pinup wardrobe.
You know when you see some amazing style that is completely different than your own and wonder, how the hell can I pull that off? Yah, these glasses were that for me. I'm kinda obsessed with the designer Domino Dollhouse and live vicariously through the models, but I thought I'd put my toe in the water and try some sunglasses I would normally think are too pinup/rockabilly for me - and the result was perfection! Show me how you conquered this challenge! Instagram and tag @jessica_kane. XOXO Jessica
