Velvet Bliss

its 2:16 am (have to get up in 4 hours) and instead of sleeping, i’m dreaming of my boyfriend in Mr. Porter’s Menswear.  Alexander McQueens Navy Blue crushed velvet blazer to be exact.  This swaggy blazer will only cost you $1,675 dollhairs, what a bargain!!!!! Honestly I would give up sushi to be able to afford beautiful, scrumptious, kick-ass jackets like this. *sigh* Even though I have perfect vision, I wish I could rock these square frame Oliver Peoples spectacles . Finish off this yummy look with a classic black leather banded watch  and black slacks.

I have always had a weird obsession with menswear,  Boyfriend jeans, collard shirts, and oh….oh the leather boots.  Well, oxfords are nice too.  I have two pairs of male inspired  oxfords, it’s hard being this regal.  WARNING: do not wear these cute suede shoes to a college party, they will end with a jungle juice accent (thank you anonymous ass-clown)

This past winter I purchased these B.A mens boots from Harley Davidson, sadly I have yet to wear them because  the fit is too different for my foot, I thought my manly 9.5  sized foot could overcome, sigh.  They look awesome with black leggings (sorry Mom I consider them pants), an oversize chunky sweater and if its nippy out (Michigan weather how I hate you) a oversize patterned scarf.

These Scotia Lace Sorel boots are their replacement, and once it’s 50 degrees out I shall never take them off. Sorel Boots

Below are some gnarly mens boots & oxfords I have pinned. The blue sole on the oxfords is a snazzy touch to a classic shoe and looks great with a structured dress pant.  A detailed shoe worn with basic pieces (dark jeans, t-shirts, blazers) gives a sophisticated look, holla at me Don Draper.
