Hey FI readers, what’s good? 

I’m officially off work for the holidays, alarm turned off until January 4th. Wait, it gets better. I had an early start on shopping so I’m done with Christmas shopping. What does that mean? Drum Roll - I have absolutely nothing to do but lay around the house and eat of course. Lululemons all day everyday. Now that is the life, dancing emoji.

This downright sultry and playful suspender skirt will have you exuding sexy this season. Paired with a white shirt (cos white and black are so perfect for each other, and cos I’m still loving up on black and it’s not even purple) for a classy yet chic look. 

Have you jumped on the back to front shirt wagon yet? And I’m talking intentionally not oops, I was in a hurry and I threw it on backwards? Ha! And you thought style stars were running out of ideas huh? Haha, think again! You may get some odd looks or folks walking up to ask if you knew your shirt was on backwards. You know me, as fearless as they come, I dove headlong into this trend and have had it on rotation for the past few months. It was totally cool albeit feeling a little odd initially and took some getting used to especially around the neck. Wear it buttoned down and bare your back in the warmer months. Umm, that would mean ‘see ya later bra’. Amen to that, haha. Add a cami and layer it up in the cold months. 

Any which way you wear it, it’s a great and inexpensive way to spice up a look. Don’t we all own at least twenty button down shirts? Did you say no? You got jokes huh? Okay okay, I believe you but don’t feel bad. Just steal your hubby’s / boyfriend’s and give it a shot, hehe. I promise you’ll love it, thank me later.

I added and relied on the silver details to dress it up further cos it’s the season to pile on the shine.
I opted for a purple coat cos I’m not completely tucking away my colorful and fun side just cos the temps say so. I am 100% the boss of me after all, not the temps, hehe.

Feeling flirty? Let the thigh high boots in intricate black lace and leather do the talking for you. Just let them. Sexy redefined!

  46. This is the second post that I read on the front-back shirt trend and I will say this again, this is a common sight in Malaysia where a huge majority of motorcyclist wear their jackets front-back. LOL! It's so strange to see it as a trend in fashion now.

  81. The whole outfit got me. Those boots first of all are all of everything and I have an uncanny attraction for fuchsia pink, so we're in that one together, don't worry and let's not begin on how many times I have taken le hub's shirts for my fashionova escapades 😋. Great look!!!
