The Fashion Revolutionaires Fall Fashion Shopping Guide: Skinny Cargo

J. Brand absolutely created a FRENZY when they introduced their version of the cargo pant (but skinny version) this summer. So much so they sold out of the $240 pair of pants. Apparently they look FABULOUS on everyone and their mom's (I disagree) but you may agree - Nevertheless I included them in, as a must for your fall shopping. Of course $240 is a little steep, so I included all price points for your shopping pleasure!


1. Eva Army Cargo $165

2. Current/Elliot The Skinny Cargo $250

3. Free People Skinny Military Cargo $98

4. J Brand Houlihan Cargo Pant $231

5. DKNY Skinny Cargo Pant $63

Your Curve ID - Levi's new denim line

I found out recently that Levi's had a new line of denim for women, called Levi's Curve ID. The denim line uses a custom fit based system that caters to each individual shape. Levi’s states it made use of a revolutionary approach that compliments one curves identifying three distinct body types that account for a women’s shape. There are three ways to to choose a perfect fit, take an online questionnaire, or measure yourself at home and take those measurements to the store, and finally you can get custom fitted at an actual Levi Store (I chose the online quiz). The online quiz, will show 3 models with different body types and you pick the one based on your own body type (not one of those girls body types did I identify with, however the DESCRIPTION of the body type did). You will then answer a series of questions, and when finished it will tell you your CURVE ID, (three types) Slight Curve, Demi Curve and Bold Curve.

Pretty exciting huh??? Its always a feat trying to find a perfect pair of jeans that FIT, especially when your ASSets are on the thicker side! I'll report back to you when I receive my pair.. they hit stores September 1st!

'Have your people, call my people"

This chick here made me come out of hiding!! Now seriously, this is one person I would just love to get ahold of.. her style is HORRENDOUS!! Such a cute girl, great shape, star exposure, and she dresses like she shops at 5-7-9 (is that store still open?).  No disrespect to 5-7-9, but she's an actress for goodness sakes, she has access to so much more, she's been on major films, why is she such a mess??????? Her style is cheap looking, tacky and slutty, is this why you can't good roles??

This was her this past weekend...  on her way inside a CLUB, she looks like she's going to wash cars at a truck stop!

Are you kidding me??


and this is not even the half...... take a look at this FOOLISHNESS

Flash from the past?? Nope this was this summer.. So the Leather jacket was her "KEY" piece......

Last year she wore these American Apparel spandex pants literally to DEATH!! ( OH NO!! Is that the same damn leather jacket????)

Now I KNOW you knew this tee was sheer when you left the house

There goes those damn pants again! (ok so this was last year right.... so her homegirl thought we wouldnt notice that she pulled out the shirt again this year, NOPE we noticed)



Please have your people, call my people! I can hook you up - PRO-BONO!!!

What Celebrity would you like to style or tell them to fire their stylist?? (I mean clearly M.G. doesnt have one)

Getting some much needed inspiration

Hello My Revolutionaires

I’m going to take a break from blogging for a little while, I'm going to head up to NYC soon and hopefully get some much needed inspiration! Thats the thing about fashion - sometimes (like art) you just need to be INSPIRED! I haven't been here lately - it comes in waves

It’s even become a struggle just to do some “filler” postings.

The "City" always brings me back to life, so I'm sure when I return I will bring the heat!

until then.....

Talk to you all soon! MWAH!!!

It's my IDENTITY!!


Are you tired of saying "What am I going to wear"? Is it a constant struggle for you to get dressed? Do you think you could go 30 days wearing the same six items (undergarments, work-out clothing not included)? Do you want to shed the notion that you are what you wear?? If so... join  The Experiment: six items or less

This experiment challenges the participants to choose six items of clothing that they will wear throughout the month. The participants will then blog on their experiences each day.

I say Good Luck!! I enjoy fashion ENTIRELY too much, it is very much a part of my identity! I get an absolute thrill out deciding what I want to say to the world on any given day through my choice of clothing. Yep.. If your thinking what I'm thinking your right.. its like ART to me!

However, if you feel differently than I, and that is definitely ok - join the challenge!

Revolutionaires, I definitely want to hear you opinion on this!

Spanx: The Official Sponsor of Summer!

It's officially Summer!! Yaaaayy! Let the BBQ's, vacations, pool parties and patio relaxation begin. However, please don't get caught out there as a fashion catastrophe!

SPANX is the answer!

Test: try on a cotton Maxi dress with your normal undergarments (bra, thong panties of course to avoid VSP), stand in front of a mirror - now walk towards the mirror, now turn around and watch yourself walk away from the mirror. NOW if at any point you saw, jiggling, wiggling, lumps or bumps from the front to the back during this test, Spanx should be your friend.

Spanx, comes in many different styles, you can go with the full power panty or the high waist panty, the are many choices, just make sure you choose!

Besides it is the OFFICAL Sponsor for Summer!

The Little Bra that could!


So while cruising the internet, I came across the site, its a little bra company that promises to deliver BIG Results. Do you wear and A or B cup and are tired of trying to find the perfect bra, that gives natural cleavage?? Look no further - The Little Bra Company where the motto is "good things do come in small packages". They offer sizes from 28 to 36 A and B cups. The company's bestselling bra, the Lucia a deep V plunge, contour lacy bra, offers to give the very natural effect of cleavage..

I know some of my more bustier Revolutionaires are thinking "what about us? they always get the pretty, dainty bras". Why yes they do! But CLEAVAGE is what they lack lol (sorry ladies but it is), while you all have that covered!  Cut me slack!

I stay FLY (even while sweating)

I'm going back in the gym, so I needed to be inspired - Are you one of those women whose gym attire includes a ratty scarf, oversized and out of shape t-shirt, and faded leggings/sweatpants??? Well do I have treat for you, this blog is ESPECIALLY for you. I can show you how you can look "fly" while sweating. No I don't mean, full runway make-up, earrings and hair so whipped it looks straight out of the salon (by the way, if you are one of those women, you really grind my gears! LOL! I mean really WTH and why?). What I mean is cute and presentable, yet comfortable for the gym. You ask why? Well I have a couple of reasons

1. "Always dress like you might run into your worst enemy" - which is one of Kimora Lee Simmons personal "rules of fabulosity". I would have to agree, unless you work out in your home, you are bound to see someone - so why not be at least presentable? (plus single ladies, MEN are deep in the gym)

2. It will motivate you to workout - If you have cute fits, you're going to want to wear them (and hopefully not just around the house) because its a recession (yes, I keep reminding you) and if you buy it, you will feel guilty if it just sits in your closet.

Nike has released the cutest apparel for looking Fly while Sweating-- check it out (most items you can find on


Cute look for the local gym ( not too much, but just enough in case you run into that Handsome single guy)

Running outdoors?? This look is perfect, once again not doing too much but definitely says "I'm serious about this thing"

Yoga anyone????

An Ode' to Carrie!

Fresh from vacation and the countdown begins!!!!! Its really here. Seems like yesterday, my friends and I were all screaming that they were thinking about making a part 2! Well opening weekend is upon us, and I have decided to dedicate this post to one my fashion muse's! Miss Carrie Bradshaw.

In anticipation of the movie, I took a look back at some of my FAVORITE Carrie fashion moments! What are yours???


These two looks here are my ALL-TIME FAVORITE LOOKS!!! Simple, street, and edgy - I love it!

I mean who puts a belt over a bare waist?? Carrie Bradshaw does, and it just works!


The famous flower (remember the one-shoulder dress and gold boots?) and the DIOR bag people were ready to kill for? This is why this one tops my list of faves

She just ABSOLUTELY killed it with the Pink Loubs!!

So Un-Carrie (some would say) but actually its very Carrie and so adorable!

The chick was FIERCE and FaBULOUS in Paris -  I mean really!

In the movie just swagger for DAYS

The pairing of a very light  feminine and frilly dress with chunky and black gladiator sandals was GENIUS to me!


There were soooo many more that I could have chosen, but I would have literally been at the computer all day. KUDOS to Patricia Fields and Rebecca Weinberg (For those who don't know R.W. was also the stylist on set for four seasons), for bringing us fashion lovers looks to really swoon over. I can't wait to see what the Sex And The CIty 2 will bring!!
