Leggings....... Oh My, Oh My!

Ok so as we can see, leggings aren't going anywhere, they just aren't, so how about we finally learn how to rock them right!

This is an example of what not to do with leggings - its just not classy, and the butt injections just don't help the cause. I'm just not big on wearing leggings with short shirts, short jackets, etc. If you are, more power to you just not my thing. It's like saying "HEY MY AZZ IS ON DISPLAY" , unless you are advertising for your performance at the strip club, or you are an up and coming female rapper (whose going for a certain IMAGE), or headed to your man's for a late night rendevous, I just don't see this look as really necessary for a night out.

I came up with the three great options!!!

Great for a date night - don't be scared to wear all black (remember is the new thing lol!) add a pop of color with your shoes, and BAM! This look is also great for our more BODACIOUS and BUSTY revolutionaires. Don't be afraid to rock the leggings, just make sure you do them right!


This is a more casual look, but still cute nonetheless, I paired the leggings with over-the knee boots, a cute and colorful (but fall appropriate) cardigan and some nice accessories.


This is my fave look, Im diggin' the sequined leggings, I paired those with a tuxedo style blazer a simple white long tank and some KILLER platforms! Throw in some bright earrings and a unique piece around your kneck and you are done!

Black is the new Black again!

According to all the fashion experts, Black is Back (Personally, I never thought black went out of style!), from the runways to the stores. When I say black, I mean BLACK from your head to your toe!

Even the beauty industry decided to jump on this "trend", Check out the new collection at MAC Cosmetics "Style Black". It features, lipstick, eye crayons, nail polish and lots more.

What do you think of this look??

Put your jacket on, its cold outside!

I know during this time of year its always kind of difficult to dress appropriately for the weather. It's not cold enough to wear wool and heavy down coats, however it is a bit nippy and a jacket is required. I know sometimes its hard to come across cute and stylish jackets, however I did some browsing and came across some really cute pieces!

Good thing about these are you can also find most of them in store!

I suck and I know it! :0(

I've just been sooo busy, and honestly havent been to inspired to write one thing. Blogging is really one of the hardest things to do, because if your not feeling it - boy you could go days with a BLANK page, and disappoint alot of people. As I have, and of course no one told me I had to do this blog, I did and I love it (most days) but after recruiting readers, etc. I owe it to you to produce something.

So hear goes!

I know I was supposed to finish the rest of the top trends for fall, and I will TODAY - being that today is OFFICIALLY the 1st day of fall! If you are wondering if  I am too late, umm no you still are on top of it! Just jump right in and make sure to buy one of the following.


So no pics, no outfits, just straight up talk!!

Big Shoulder Jackets - and you all thought Beyonce was out of her mind sporting what seemed like countless outfits with shoulder pads. Well she was actually ahead of the game (1st time for everything right?) big shoulders are in. Look at it this way, big shoulders automatically makes the waist appear smaller! That has to count for something right????

Gloves - to be more specific, long fingerless gloves - this is actually one of my favorite trends this season, there are some DOPE styles out there right now. If you know me personally (yes you will probably see me in them a time or two)!

Short Velvet Dresses - hmmmm not so much for me, however if you like velvet and you like short dresses - here's a perfect match. If you are like me, and wondering what the hell the Fashion Mafia  were thinking, don't be surprised when you notice these in your local boutiques.

Fur Stoles - Yes, you too can look a real Manhattan Socialite, however I would warn you against getting the "real" thing. You don't want any problems with P.E.T.A..

Head to monotone - as much as I hate to be matchy matchy, I'm digging this look! Why? Because your can rock the HELL out of it, and look very fashionable. I'm digging layering different shades of greys, blues, and purples! Ooooh sounds nice huh?

Blanket Coats - think Snuggies but a lil more fashionable! (Not feeling it huh?) yeah me either LOL!

Lace-Ankle Booties - So 80's! So Madonna! So loving it!! There are some FIERCE booties out there! JUMP ON THEM.....

Over-the knee Boots - and yes it is very specific, not just knee boots but OVER THE KNEE! *Disclaimer* I am an eternal hater of knee boots, over the knee, whatever you want to call them. I am representing for the big leg girls (like Alicia holds us down) and I just can't rock them, calves are just too damn big. But for all you skinny leg chicks that can - check them out, they are out there and DEEP

Black is the new Black - so black is back apparently, personally I'd like to think it never goes out of style! However, its just not enough to wear a black dress, no when I am talking about black is back, I'm talking about giving you FULL Black. Black dress, black tights (tights which are big this fall as well, prints, solids, plaids), black shoes, black handbag, black accessories FULL BLACK!

There you have it Revolutionaires, of course I didn't hit on all of them, there are really just too many to name! If you have any you want featured or need outfit ideas, hit me up here on the blog or email me at fashionrevolutionaires@gmail.com

until next time Revolutionaires..................

Chapter 3.... (ok, I've been waiting for this one)

Ok, so I have literally had these in my closet for about 6 years (maybe longer) tags on them and everything - even tried to sell them on Ebay to no avail. Sure glad they didn't go, because they ARE BACK!!! 

Dare you ask?


Leather Pants baby!!!!!!!! We are talking, skinnies, baggies, capris, etc. just leather and just do it (by the way faux leather works too)! I mean I remember when my mom would rock her leather pants with a sweater (in the 80s), and heels, yoooo I just thought it was so sophisticated and classy, and edgy. Now they're back, and I honestly believe anyone can wear them! Now if only the bring back the denim with the leather on the front... IMA ACT A FOOL!!!!!

Chapter 2

I said dresses right?? Well, I know this is for fall and all, but this is what was BLAZING the runways. Not just any dresses, but ONE-SHOULDER dresses, and I'm talking from formal, to a night out, to downright casual. You pick the occasion, there is a one-shoulder dress for you. I can actually say that I am digging them, but with that said I do have to get it together on the toning of the arms, and I'm all in!!

Fall Edition 2009 - Chapter 1!

Sooo Revolutionaires!! Fall is fast approaching, Sept 22nd to be exact, and of course I don't want to leave you all hanging - nope I would never do that! Over the next couple of weeks I will be bringing the hottest trends for the fall 2009. 

Disclaimer: We all know the runways sets the trends, and the rest follow. But don't get discouraged, YOU know I will be blogging about low priced options as they come! This is just an informational of sorts - so I wont get into the how to hook it up, or outfit options, I just want you to know what to look out for, and on down the line we will hook YOU up!

1st up HOT PINK!!! Hot pink was HOT on the runway for fall 2009, especially at the Marc Jacobs show. I personally love hot pink, I think if I were a color I would be hot pink. There are so many options, and its so versatile, if a entire dress is just too much, rock a hot pink purse or a pair of heels. Like I said there are so many options - just let me show you.

Hot pink Everyday


next up, Chapter 2: DRESSES, hahaha but their is a twist and I'll tell you what that is 2morrow! ( I can't give you too much too soon lol)

The final curtain call.................

"In the end, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and those you love and work hard. Work like there's no tomorrow. Train. Strive. Really train and cultivate your talent to the highest degree. Be the best at what you do. Get to know more about your field than anybody alive. Use the tools of your trade, if it's books or a floor to dance on or a body of water to swim in. Whatever it is, it's yours. That's what I've always tried to remember" - Michael Jackson

 You will inspire many of us for years to come, whether it be music, art and even FASHION.

We will always REMEMBER YOU.....

The hair, the looks, the fashions, we will never forget you. You inspired fans across the world to emulate your "trendsetting" looks, you have been influential on film, TV, and the runways. It's eerie (yet shows the huge influence you have) that this year alone, your style has been in the forefront of "must have looks", from the Balmain's military inspired jackets, to the infamous romper and jumpsuit that are all the rage. Your contributions to the world of entertainment, and pop culture will never be forgotten. YOU WILL BE MISSED.....

R.I.P. MICHAEL JACKSON (8/29/58 - 6/25/09) AND FARRAH FAWCETT (2/2/47 - 6/25/09)
