I’m not going to lie; this Suit Tote from Poketo! is pretty awesome. Look at all the details! Have you ever seen a tote with so much details – filled with a variety of materials from leather, wool, cotton, corduroy, and a variety of buttons?! I love love LOVE it! And quite honestly, I’m a little inspired to grab my blazer & dress shirt to make one of these cute totes. Instead of having my boyfriend fit into his suit, I rather use the space for my laptop and other essentials. Genius!
With five different suits (tote), I’m sure you can find one that matches your boyfriend’s style. Not to mention, the totes are made in conjunction with a South Korean non-profit so all profits are donated to eco-awareness programs.
P.S. If your bf isn’t going to let you grab materials from his closet, run over to the thrift store for some awesome vintage material to make a tote like this.

The first time I saw these harem pants on a fashion email newsletter, I was like “Oh my goodness! What the heck IS that?!” But I’m not going to lie, I’m actually starting to like these large parachute pants. Perhaps it’s because of the gloomy, rainy weather here in the San Fransisco Bay Area, that I just want to snuggle in something baggy, comfy yet fashionable.
It was not until I came across my favorite comedian of all time that I began to appreciate it even more. Ah yes, my mister Charlie Chaplin.
Not only was he a comedian, a film director and composer, but I would definitely say he became a timeless fashion icon.
Looking at my collective female Chaplin impersonator photos, I would say it’s safe to blame this legendary guy for these silly fancy harem pants and, of course, the bulgy bowler hat trend. Read More Bowler Hat by Anjelica »
The beautiful & sweet American actress, Jessica Alba impersonates Charlie Chaplin for her June 2008 issue of Allure Magazine, 2008.
Chaplin’s iconic look still inspires the many around the world. At Spring’s Fashion Week 2011 in Paris, Designer John Galliano (who have designed for famous people like Kylie Minogue, Charlize Theron, Rihanna, Lucy Liu, and Mary-Kate Olsen) showcased his Chaplin inspired outfits and with an edgy dark twist.
Though many love to impersonate Charlie Chaplin (both guys and girls) for the fun of it, he has truly been a fashion icon. So for tonight’s homework assignment: raid your bf’s closet and put together a Chaplin outfit and add your own personal touch, whether it’s edgy, sexy, cute, sweet or even straight ugly.
Raid, Create & Chaplinize!
Alright boyfriend fashion crazies, place your vote! Who Rocks & Wears It Better?
The fearless Rihanna or The Charming Anne Hathaway?
Though, Rihanna’s tux has that outrageous and gaudy puffy shoulders to giver her that extra personality and that “look at me!” element, I would give Hathaway the vote. Hathaway wins for making a simple & minimal tux, look elegant and charming by adding a modest pinch of something shimmery here and there – such as a pair of sparkly pewter pumps, bedazzling ring & earrings to compliment her bedazzling tux button. She sure can put together a stunning outfit and make Lavin’s Tuxedo bold, yet chic.
Oh Oxfords, Oh Oxfords, I really can’t get enough of you. While at the mall this weekend, I spotted a new found love displaying with the other flats at Nordstrom. Ladies & Gents, let me introduce you to the beautiful and gentlemanesque slip-on loafers – Marcela by Dolce Vita.
It comes in so many fun colors, but I am most drawn to the Natural Toned one. This will definitely look good with your skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, or even a dress. Dress up or down with these suede slip-ons.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
