If You Were Not Cybering, What Were You Doing




I have a very very bad habit of not deleting emails. There are currently over 100k emails awaiting action in my inbox. I tried to get to them all which felt like a another job by itself. And don’t I already hold down two jobs? My teaching job (which by the way I adore) that has been very hectic lately and writing Fashionably Idu of course. I literally hit the ground running every morning and it’s nonstop until bedtime. Anyhow...

"If you’re not cybering what are you doing”? 
...as I deleted mails, I saw this, the caption of a mail from Revolve on Cyber Monday. It made me laugh. Still laughing at the thought of it. I did not cyber btw so I'm playing catchup. You? 

Invites to soirees and parties are finding their way into our mailboxes like I mentioned here. Some perched on the refrigerator door as a reminder of rsvp deadlines not to be missed. Others we’re sure are no no’s and the invites don’t make it anywhere near the refrigerator. Planning your outfits is obviously key if you want to be the belle of the ball. And if you don’t, then feel free to throw on any thing you find in you closet on the day of. 
Like I kinda sorta did here.

Much as I adore midi skirts and was squealing with delight when I came upon this runway piece at the MaxAzria store in SF, there was just one notable little problem with it. It was almost falling off my waist when I tried it on. A total shame considering this was the smallest size in the store. I got it anyhow. My dry cleaner worked her magic on it and voila. If you love it and are not a size zero which I’m NOT even though I’ve been told I look like it (perhaps they were looking at the legs, focus on the clothes pretty please. IJS) then I highly recommend it especially it you’re a die hard lover of midi skirts. If you find one that is, :).

I paired it with a lace up long sleeves top but the chill was real so I threw on a turtle neck top for a much needed extra layer of warmth. The lace up top sleeves played peek a boo from time to time. Some pulling and tugging on the outer layer was all it took to take care of that pesky problem. 

I love boots and I know you do too, I mean who doesn’t? While knee highs and otks are perfect for this time of year, ankle boots worn with socks also get the job done. So I reached for a pair of sky high Alaia boots and wore them over a pair of tights and socks from forever 21. 
Do you love to wear socks with boots? Or are you a Yeesy sock boots gal? I stuck with socks this time as stated and I think I still managed to look impeccably put together if I say so myself.
 Your thoughts?

On a side note, this post has quite a few shots of me sitting and I'm starting to think I should have titled it "Sitting'. Or 'Take Several Seats'. Or even 'Plant Your Butt on the Bench' , LOL.

By the way how is the Christmas shopping coming along? Taken advantage to the Neiman Marcus 20% your entire purchase using code FRIENDME yet? It ends tomorrow so do check it out if you haven't.

  1. Amazing shoes! I love this color!
    And I have to say, I have also so many e-mails to read and answer... And I have still not a lot of time.

  2. that dress is so cute....and I like how you matched socks with your adorable ankle boots with high heels. Such a feminine styling altogether! You always look so beautiful and your sense of style is a true inspiration.

    I have a problem with too many mails too:) Once my mom saw my account and asked - what's with all the mails Ivana?

  3. I'm terrible at deleting emails too, which is why I started organizing them in different folders. It has helped me a lot to stay productive! :) I love how you've styled your socks with the rest of your outfit! Such a cute way to stay warm yet still look super pretty.

  4. 100k emails? Yikes!!! You must have unlimited storage. I hate cluttered inbox. I respond, delete, refile in a sub folder - I'm over organized sometimes, I think. Unto the OOTD....you look absolutely stunning, as usual 😍 I love the socks with the booties - adds a little extra flair to an already standout pair of kicks. Go on with your fine self, slay Queen. Enjoy the soirees. Merry Christmas 🎅🏽🎄

  8. What a beautiful skirt - glad you could get it altered to fit as it's really nice with the pink and black :)

    I have far too many emails as well. Every now and then I'll take 10 minutes to try sort through them but it barely makes a dent!

    Hope you are having a great weekend :)

  31. I must say I have been drooling over these photos since I came across them. I love midi skirts and dresses . I am a socks with boots kind of girl, you need to see me ohhing and ahhing in sock stores especially calzedoina, though lately, I wonder what's been happening to the quality of their socks. At this time of year, the midi skirts and boots are a must for me. I have no preference for ankle or knee lengths as long they suit my style at the time. Lovely and well put together as always

  46. Girl, I'm the same! I have nearly 3k e-mails between 3 different e-mail accounts I have to sort through everyday! The thing is that I keep unsubscribing to stores I know longer shop at, but they're STILL messaging me, which accounts for most of my messages, so annoying! Anyway, I love this entire outfit! The skirt is so unique and looks great paired with the black and pop of burgundy! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

I don't delete my emails because I always think that I will have time to read them later. And of course that never happens. So I end up having more than I can read. You look beautiful. I love the hair a lot.

  49. I love this creative outfit Idu, it shows off even more your styling skills, while keeping up your outstanding elegance. I love the color combo of black, blush pink and burgundy, and the mix of high low silhouettes. Your gloves are a treat! I know what you mean, it's a rat race all the time!

  71. I see why you fell for that skirt, dear, its beautiful and worth the effort you put into it for sure. Such a lovely addition to your wardrobe. And you in that top is so amazing, incredibly sexy! That close in shot of your gorgeous breasts under there had me finishing in seconds upon sight of it. And I was so excited I just kept enjoying it anyway and was rewarded with a rare, intense second time! Like I'm 14 again ;) You are incredible, dear, and so sweet!! Not surprised you need to sit so much, sounds like a busy time for you!

I love the silhouette you created with that turtle neck too as well. Omg, I LOVE the bag...been eying it for quite sometime now...hehe! Hope you have a fabulous Xmas. Btw...I'm as bad with emails too...that explains why you missed my email 🤔
