Bring in the funk

Just came back from post-xmas shopping and got a few awesome pieces from H&M for 5-10 bucks. I got so excited that I decided to make some outfits to celebrate. Before I start, however, how can you be funky without looking like a crazy person? Well, besides confidence, charm, and witty inteligence, here are some outfits (along with levels of funky).

Here it is:

If you are new to the indie mod scene, try something basic but mix it up with the accessories. This outfit is casual but fun. Be careful though, feathers and all may be fun but accessories are to accompany your outfit, not to overwhelm it.

Funky Chic/medium

Little more daring but still very clean and polished. This outfit is nice for a casual Fridays or out in the bars in the more trendy areas. The ankle boots are optional but remember that heels are a must as they lengthen those legs!

Funkidelic/expert (so to speak...)

Takes guts but I am totally going to pull this off one day. Anyways, this is for those who live in urban-y areas or tolerate slight hipster (or H&M divided look). Personally, I love it but sometimes it is not for everyone. Just get a mini skirt, belt, make it high and add with a blouse. Be careful with the skirt, however. Always make sure you can bend down or else you'll be showing a little more than wanted.

That's that. Cannot wait for 09!

Three ways to dress the red dress!

Bought something and found out you can only wear it to one function? Even worse, realize you just do not have the cash?

Fear not, I have a solution! Even if you have a piece of clothing that is not versatile, think again. Recently I bought a dress that is cute but only for casual events. Or so I thought. While I was bored in my room at a godforsaken hour, I realized that this dress is also versatile with a little creativity! In fact, I've been using this dress everywhere: work, at the club, and even in the classroom.

"Out and about in the town" dress

This outfit is especially good for the cold weather we've been having lately in Cali! Just pair off with tights and a plain black or white turtleneck. Then, throw on a fun pea coat with texture and add on some funky accessories (I.e. Headbands are in)!

"For the office" dress

Just add a white or black or (if you are adventurous) patterned blouse and pair it off with some tights (optional). Of course, if you are the adventurous type make sure you use a monochrome dress. Also add a blazer and office appropriate jewelry! Classy but cute!

Lastly..."Out at night" dress

Use a belt, add some pumps, heels, and whatever jewelry that has sparkles. If you are feeling risky and frisky, try a strange pairing for shoes. Red and yellow? Don't believe me, try it.

Not only do you get the most of your clothes but also save money and be creative!

That's that!
