I’m back from Las Vegas.  I definitely want to be back west enjoying the sunshine and the people watching, but duty calls and I have to get back to my real life.  Las Vegas is a fantastic place to sit and people watch and see new fashions; both the good, the bad and the “oh my goodness, who let you buy THAT?”  Basically it’s awesome and I highly recommend it 🙂

The trend that I am discussing today was not one that I saw while in Vegas, but it is more of the casual type and probably not great for dressier nights on the town.  I’m talking about the menswear inspired brogues.

 

I feel like this may be more of a difficult look to pull off and I have yet to decide if I will be following this trend or not.  I’m totally all for the menswear looks (boyfriend jeans, cardigans and converse sneakers are an ideal look for me) but these just seem very specific and I don’t know how often I would actually wear these.  However, they are highly on trend and can be found in many different places.

These are an option I found on Aldo.  These are only $50 and are available in the black color above or also a cognac color.  These are cute but I just don’t know that I personally could pull off; guess this style is just not for me.

Here’s another option if you want a little zing of color.  These are from DSW (a store that I could live in if they let me) and only $59.95.  Again, not positive if these are for me but I am slowly moving into the accepting direction.

And for one final look:

These beauties are from Nordstroms and I do enjoy the glittery, glitzy look.  I think these could be fun and the easiest of the looks for me to try and incorporate into my current wardrobe.  That figures since both the gold and black lace up shoes are the ones I like most and they are both $295.00…  I have expensive taste.

So is this a trend that you like and/or are already wearing?  Do you have any advice on how a newbie to this look can work it into her style?  Let me know how you would do it.

…  To be on time for once!!  Geeze, I missed What I Want Wednesday again.  But in my defense, my baby brother was performing in his very first stand up comedy show yesterday so I was busy all day getting things done so I could go and watch him.

So I’m a little late.  It doesn’t change the fact that I do still want every single one of these items.  I found them all while shopping this past weekend.  I almost purchased everything I am about to post here, but decided to hold back and wait a few days before buying everything.

Without further ado…

I want this skirt.  I will have to try it on because I have never worn a mini skirt before and the thought is really intimidating.  Who knows, maybe I will put this skirt on and absolutely hate it, but when I see it laying on the display in store, I LOVE it!

I also want this top.  I was very, very close to buying this over the weekend.  It was on the clearance $5 rack but I had a sneaky feeling it wasn’t supposed to be.  So before standing in line forever and then finding out it wasn’t on sale, I asked an employee if they could check.  It wasn’t, I put it back to buy at a later date and have not stopped thinking of it since.

This was the original blazer that I saw in the store.  I thought it was super cute and that it would look great over a light, summery dress for brunch or another fun moment like that.  After looking at it more on the website though I’m not sure.  This would be another one I have to try on; I don’t usually like cropped tops on myself.  I do definitely want a blazer though…  Maybe I could do this one instead.

The final item I am wanting today is a pair of fabulous red sunglasses from Fossil.  I can’t find any pictures of them online, so I guess that is even more reason to just buy them, so I can show you all how cute they are.  (Sunglasses are almost as bad an obsession as watches for me…  Speaking of watches, I found a watch I want too!)

Because the Charlotte Russe website isn’t allowing me to post the pictures of the items like I wanted, I posted links instead…  But because Polyvore is awesome, I’m able to create a look involving all of the above mentioned pieces.

A couple housekeeping tidbits before I go.  I am planning on doing an update to the blog this weekend, so keep an eye out for that as well as my thoughts on the latest episode of Project Runway.
Also, we are only 5 followers away from a giveaway!  So keep an eye out for that as well, hopefully there will be news on that very soon.
