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.

The Plaid Mini Skirt

Hello Fabulous Fashionista/o!♥ The Classic Californian here again. Thank you for still checking out my blog after a prolonged absence. The past couple of months have been hectic and overwhelmingly busy. And just when I got a little free time, there was always something to do. But now that things have kind of mellowed out and got some things sorted out, I am here to stay 🙂 I have so much planned out for this blog,  I am so excited to share with you all what I’ve got. So stick around.

The plaid mini skirt was very popular in the early – mid 1970’s. Correspondingly, this is one of the eras I find the most inspiration in. From the bell bottoms to the rock and roll scene and beyond, I have incorporated some trends into my personal style.

Here I paired one of my favorite black faux fur (always!) coats with a zipper body suit and heeled boots. {See the bottom for outfit details.}

This coat is not only warm but soft and fuzzy. It’s just so amazing I can wear it with pretty much anything. I wish faux fur coats and vests weren’t so daring. Yes this can be a daring fashion choice, but it’s awesome! Just as long it’s not coming from real animal fur.

For me this combo was great for those kind of warm,  kind of chilly spring days. California weather can be nuts sometimes, but hey I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else! #CaliGirl4Life

Interestingly, there’s a lot of history behind the mini skirt. I will be posting about the history of the mini skirt on Saturday! It’s a pretty fun read, please check it out 🙂

See you then♥

XOXO
