Going to your Sugar Daddy’s Funeral

Cashing in on that life insurance soon? I’m deeply sorry for your loss. But GIRL what are you going to wear???

 

♠♣♦♥

I kid. I hope you caught on to the satire at the beginning. If you haven’t, the internet has its share of sugar daddy memes.  I’m only poking fun at a cultural phenomenon. It’s like we’re stuck in some dark Lana Del Rey song. Young vibrant beauty meets handsome old money, a romance about lovers from different eras. I’m sure there’s a Lana song about an old rich dude that lives in California that drives a Chevy Malibu. It’s called Shades of Cool and there’s a video too. So mysterious.

Inspired by dark, old money, old Hollywood glamor I bring you…what to wear to your sugar daddy’s funeral with a small side of Coco Chanel and sass. I present to you this all black look with a touch of vintage featuring black lace gloves. Can we bring back gloves for formal occasions? I feel fancy wearing these gloves.

I opted for a black pencil skirt and an off the shoulder bodysuit. It’s a two piece, not a dress. This is my favorite black pencil skirt that goes with virtually everything.

Making my bodysuit and skirt the centerpiece, I opted to keep my shoe choice simple with a pair of strappy heels.

I paired this black choker with an all rhinestone choker to balance out the black. Note: rhinestones are always a good idea if you want to feel and look fabulous.

And I completed my look with my Betsey Johnson cheetah tan handbag, I LOVE her handbags. I felt that I wanted a little pop of print and color just to keep things interesting and from falling flat.

Coco loves chillin in handbags so she’s good. No one is getting harmed I can assure you.

Remember darling, you don’t need a sugar daddy and no man to slay. Let’s make this money ourselves.

Yeezy isn’t revolutionary: Biker Shorts, an 80’s trend comeback

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s! It’s your classic cal gal here. As I’m writing this, it’s kind of annoying that I feel the need to start off by writing about the weather. But you know what isn’t so annoying? Well it sort of is, 80’s trends baby! If you don’t already know I am NOT a fan of the fashion from the 80’s decade. The 80’s are making their comeback thanks to the Kardashians. Kim K. is pictured stepping out in head to toe Yeezy apparel. I’m not here to say that Kim K’s fashion is lame or to hate on her, I’m a huge Kardashian fan(guilty!) and I admire their fashion sense. I’m just pointing out how trends make a comeback and in this case it just happens to be an 80’s trend.

Notice how Kim pairs her shorts with sneakers and socks that bunch at the ankles you’ll see how this is very 80’s… scroll on.

Recently, I’ve seen Kim Kardashian sporting Yeezy biker shorts. While she styles the biker shorts so nicely, I will be the one to say that the Yeezy biker shorts aren’t revolutionary or a remotely new trend, sorry.

Let’s take a look at Kim K’s array of biker short outfits:

kimkardashian080218b

I don’t know if Kim and the Yeezy brand think they’re making groundbreaking fashion moves but they’re not and here’s why.

The exercise scene was HUGE in the 80’s, think bright colored leotards and legwarmers (cause you needed to keep your legs warm when working out). With this fad the biker shorts emerged onto the fashion scene and in the world of exercise. Take a look.

From famous Olympians…

80s spandex

…to your average teenage girl next door.

And hey look it’s Princess Di, sporting the biker shorts!

Notice how they sport the biker shorts with sneakers and socks that bunch at the ankle.

The shorts also lingered on into the 90’s as seen in clueless;

Heck, I even have photos of my mom sporting the biker shorts in the early 90’s. But these biker shorts could be the leggings of summer. Why? Because in the summer it gets really hot and sometimes it’s too hot to don your favorite pair of leggings. Thanks Kim K. for bringing back the biker shorts! (To be continued…)

Honey, take me on vacation! Styling the Floral Romper

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s!♥ C.C here. Have you ever wanted to escape on a vacation getaway to the beach and just become a mermaid? And never return? Same. Well although we can only be mermaids in our hearts, we can still soak up the sun in style while on vacation. My favorite trend? Rompers! They’re great because they come in all sorts of colors and styles giving you many options to find something that fits you. For this article I will be talking about the shoulder less bell sleeve romper style.

img_3530

I LOVE the pastel colors on my romper. I also LOVE the off the shoulder bell sleeve design giving it a boho edge but the pink accents keep it girly.

img_3502

It has a thin sort of belt to tie at the waist to frame it. If you’re a short curvy girl like myself, I recommend a romper that has a similar design that frames your waist. Since I’m short I find that the rompers that are sort of loose fitting makes one look shapeless and out of proportion. Don’t let that happen to you. This is what makes shopping for rompers tricky. You can totally look fabulous, just find one that frames your body shape and above all makes you feel and look amazing. Because we came to slay.

img_3522

What I love about rompers is that you can just throw one, put on your favorite heels and maybe accessorize and you’ll look fancy a’f with minimal effort. It’s perfect for those days when you just don’t know what to wear.

img_3571

But as you know me, I don’t know how to keep it simple. I paired this romper with my favorite sun hat because you can’t go on vacation without a sun hat.  I was feeling the pink accents on my romper so I paired it with these bright pink chunky heeled sandals. Oh, and my outfit isn’t complete without a little bit of jewelry bling.

Can’t forget a good ol’ close up:

Give the romper a chance. Here’s an off the shoulder bell sleeve top from Fashion Nova:

This romper was also styled with chunky heeled sandals!

Here’s another bell sleeve romper from Fashion Nova:

If you’re feeling a little bit more edgy, try going for a flowy bell sleeve instead of the shoulder less style. Romper from Forever 21.

I own a romper similar to this design (pictured on the bottom) and I absolutely love it because I can just throw on my favorite sandals for a casual look. I recommend it and it’s also from Forever 21.

00222638-01

See how well the chunky heeled sandals are styled with the romper? Take notes.

Chose your romper wisely and you’ll be on your way to being the most fabulous woman in town.

See you next week!

All of the Lights

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@!♥  It’s February, love is in the air or at least my love for faux fur outerwear. Faux fur is my favorite go-to when I want to add some edge to an outfit, to sort of make it that much boujee. Boujee, that’s such a weird word. Anyways, I found this faux fur coat at this cute boutique in town and I HAD to have it.

I wanted to keep it neutral so I opted for this grey long sleeveless bodycon dress. I’m sort of obsessed with the faux fur on the cardigan. It’s rather unique and gives the outfit a sophisticated vibe. I also accessorized my dress with this jean lace up corset. I love these corset belts cause they’re so versatile and can wear them with dresses and tops. If you’re good at paring it, you’ll come to find that they’re fun to wear.

Also going along with this toned down neutral look, are my Steve Madden Pumps. I absolutely love these Steve Madden pumps, they’re adorable and really put together any look.

As you can probably tell, I love clothing/shoes/accessories that can match with almost anything, that are versatile. Where’s the fun if you can’t mix up your looks here and there? The key to having an endless wardrobe is to have key clothing pieces that are versatile. You’ll have so many options on outfits and can mix and match if you work up the creativity to do so.

Regardless, if you have key versatile pieces in your wardrobe or not, it’s never a bad idea to go shopping!!

See you next week!

Xoxo,

New Year, Same Me

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@!♥  Happy New Year!! I’m sure you’re sick of hearing that but I hope you’ve all rang in the new year with lots of joy and style. One thing I will say is that I think New Years resolutions are complete BS. Honestly, do you really know of anyone who kept their resolutions of hitting the gym everyday with a side of kale shakes and healthy eating? I don’t. Seriously, lets ditch resolutions cause it’s all about GOALS. Set goals and start small. Or big, whatever floats your boat. Think of something you’d like to achieve, dream BIG and start small. Set goals along the way and you’ll see that it will be much more achievable than resolutions. I’ve already set a few big goals for this year and I’m starting small, baby steps, and will build on that. Let’s hope that this is the year that all of our dreams will come true. *insert Disney fairy godmother GIF here*

Moving on to what this blog is all about, my dress. This is what I’d wear to a party.  If you don’t already know I LOVE anything that sparkles!! I think there’s a Paris Hilton quote out there somewhere about loving sparkles. I scored this dress at Ross for like $8 and it looks like a million bucks. Seriously, it’s so sparkly. (I’m a college gal on a budget)

DSCN1733

This faux fur coat is my absolute FAVORITE. I refuse to go out on a date or party on a cold night without my faux fur coat it’s so versatile and goes perfect with any outfit! The best part? The coat is actually warm!

DSCN1753

The pumps and bag are from Aldo. I love my box of a purse because of the  oriental style design on it along with the tiger head. This fuchsia color on the heels looks even more gorgeous in person and I get so many compliments because of the color. I have a thing for collecting colored pumps.

Hope you enjoyed and make sure to catch what Coco Chanel and I are up to next week on Wednesday! See you soon.

Thanks,

-XOXO C.C♥

Coco Chanel barking at other people/ dogs, as usual.

Hello fabulous fashionist@s! ♥♥ CC here again, it’s not the new years yet but I definitely know what my resolution is, to stop ghosting you all. Seriously, whats up with me disappearing? Well, I’ve been working on various projects that I’ll be showing on here. But I’m glad to be back. For starters, if you’ve been following my instagram page, I introduced to you all Classic Californian’s newest furry addition, Coco Chanel. (If you haven’t been following my instagram page, @ClassicCalifornian , please do so! ) She’s a small toy Maltese but don’t let her small size fool you, Coco Chanel will fight you. She has the spirit of a lion and knows she’s fabulous. Her self confidence and the way she carries herself like a true lady is very remarkable for a small canine like herself. Coco loves getting pampered and small walks. Coco will be a regular so I thought I’d give her a small intro.

She’s looking for something to bark at.

Moving on this dress. It’s actually vintage from the 90’s. How I got it is an interesting story.  My friend and I were on a hunt to find vintage gems and came across this vintage second hand shop in LA called Jet Rag. I think we even went there by mistake. The store was HUGE and had every vintage dress you could ever dream of. The dresses are organized by decades ranging from 1920’s to the present. There are also lots of accessories, vintage jeans, and hand bags. This usually isn’t my scene but I had to give it a go. I scourged the 1990’s section and found so many wonderful dresses true to the decade. But I fell in love with this lavender retro looking dress.

DSCN1338
Coco loves sitting in purses.

 

Another side story to add, these earrings are actually vintage from the 90’s as well. They’re something my mom passed down to me. I’d say that they’re really classy.

DSCN1307 (3)

I honestly don’t care that it’s fall and that these “aren’t seasonal appropriate colors” like if those rules exist. For one, Coco Chanel (the most iconic fashion designer, like ever) once said “don’t dress for the weather”. And two, it’s LA here and we always have sunshine. Seasons don’t exist here, it can be December and be like over 72 degrees.  How I love SoCal.

DSCN1365 (3)
Surprised we captured her not barking. 

Speaking of the seasons, I’ll be posting some holiday looks for you all cause I know we may have some holiday parties to attend. If you’d like too see a certain style or trend but not really sure if you want to try it out? Tell me in the comments section and I’ll try it out for you!! (if I agree with it)

Bringing Back The Overalls

Hello fabulous fashionist@!♥ I was going through my closet and found this overall dress. Once again (the last time in a long time) will I be blogging about 90’s inspired fashion. I went through a phase where my style was inspired by the 90’s as you have seen.

DSCN0404 (4)

As the Southern California heat is soon coming to an end, let’s soak up these final days of hot sunshine.

DSCN0428 (4)

I might cut this dress up and wear it to Coachella.

Next week I’ll have a furry little guest I want to introduce to you all. Make sure to stay tuned, I really want you to meet this guest! ♥

See you next week!

Back in Black

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@!♥ I know lame title, but not so lame? These heeled boots I bought recently. They’re so versatile, you can call them classic but for today’s look I’m keeping it all black. This look is somewhat inspired by Blake Lively with the big hat and all.

IMG_4426 (2)

This look was nice for a sunny day out. And once it starts to cool down I can wear these boots with my favorite pair of jeans for a casual sexy date look.

IMG_4435 (2)

Seriously, heeled boots should be a closet staple. If you need inspiration for wearing these just look at how celebrities dress them up.

See you Thursday! <3

Cool in Hot Pink

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@! Classic Cal gal here again. The temperatures are definitely rising here in Southern California. But what other way to stay cool than in a slip dress? And even cooler with a black faux leather jacket. The 90’s wave of slip dresses have made a huge comeback. I remember the earliest I ever saw  a slip dress was in the 90’s in a Vogue magazine campaign worn by the one and only Kate Moss.

DSCN0040 (2)

But, I am not trying to channel the 90’s here. I am giving this slip dress an edgy vibe with this faux leather jacket (not actually to be worn of course), pairing it with my favorite nude sandal heels. These heels are so versatile and go with anything.

Stay cool, see you next week!
