Beyonce Concert Outfit Breakdown

I wanted to go with more of an edgy sexy look instead of my normal sexy and classy style. 

This is the break down of what I wore:

Denim Hat- I love denim and I just had to have this denim snapback hat from H&M. On the front of the hat stitched in blue reads ‘Odd Behavior.’ Adding the snapback was a last minute decision but I’m glad I did. It add a fun masculine look to my edgy style and went perfectly with the shorts and boots. 

On Saturday night for the first time ever, I attended Beyonce’s concert along with my girl Portia.

I wanted to go with more of an edgy sexy look instead of my normal sexy and classy style.

This is the break down of what I wore:

Denim Hat- I love denim and I just had to have this denim snapback hat from H&M. On the front of the hat stitched in blue reads ‘Odd Behavior.’ Adding the snapback was a last minute decision but I’m glad I did. It adds a fun masculine look to my edgy style and went perfectly with the shorts and boots.

Distressed Shirt- My love for anything distressed runs deep. I’ve always wanted to wear a distressed T-shirt and found someone local to design it in a matter of a few hours before the concert. I was going to go to Wal-mart and pick up a shirt I could get distressed but instead, I decided to shop my closet and came across this T-shirt. I immediately brought it over to the designer house and within a matter of minutes, my outfit was finally complete.

High-Waisted Denim Shorts- I very, very seldom wear shorts. OH! But when I do, this is the outcome. Purchased from H&M as well, size 6. What I love most about this pair is the spandex material. It has the same spandex stretch as my favorite H&M pants.  I love a good pair of denim that’s affordable & hugs you in all the right places.

Boots- The highlight of the night, purchased from GoJane.com. I styled my entire look around these boots. I knew I wanted to go for an edgy look and felt these over the knee tie up denim boots would give me that exact look I was going for.  These boots run true to size. Part of me wish I would’ve purchased a half size up but overall, I am happy with them especially since they fit my thighs. Over the years I’ve had problems with finding a nice thigh high boot because none of the pairs I tried on gave me the fit I was going for. These exceeded my expectations and just to think I was contemplating on sending them back.

How to Style 1 Skirt, 2 ways: Sexy vs. Classy

Crop Tops They’re super sexy because it shows off the midriff section without giving too much. You can pair it with a midi length pencil skirt like I’m wearing here or with a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans like I wore on my Favorite Jeans post. Check it out here

Pussy Bow Blouse The ultimate Classy blouse. It’s been around since the 1940’s and was inspired by the Gibson Girls in the 1800’s. It’s the true definition of classy vintage. You can never go wrong with a Pussy Bow Blouse.

Pencil Skirt A Midi length skirt will always give you the Sexy and Classy look you’re going for.  Try one with spandex material like I’m wearing here to accentuate your curves.

Pearls One word, Classy. Contrary to “fashion rules” you can dress up a t-shirt and jeans with a pair of pearls and look effortlessly chic. Always keep a few different styles in your jewelry box to go with just about any occasion.

Pose Never take a pose for granted, it shows confidence. Always accentuate your best and be sure to wear styles that are flattering to your curves.

You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it. –Edith Head 

Do you believe this saying? I mean do you really believe that you can have ANYTHING you want in life if you dress for it? This quote doesn’t mean you can’t have what you want if you don’t dress for it, it’s simply implying that when you dress the part you’re much more confident and in term can help you get what you want in life.

Do you believe this saying? I mean do you really believe that you can have ANYTHING you want in life if you dress for it? This quote doesn’t mean you can’t have what you want if you don’t dress for it, it’s simply implying that when you dress the part you’re much more confident and in term can help you get what you want in life.

Studies have shown when you look good, you feel good, you’re happier, you’re much more inspired and confident. For those reasons alone you should always put an extra effort into your appearance. For some people getting dressed and creating stylish looks comes easily, for others it doesn’t, and that’s okay. That’s what I’m here for!

Tip: Whatever you’re wearing, wear it because it’s the right fit for your body type and it’s something you feel confident in.

If you’re having trouble with putting an entire look together, start with what you love wearing most. For example, if you love to wear blazers, here’s a list of ways you can style it differently: You can wear it like I’m doing here with an ankle length pencil skirt, with a pair of jeans or with a pair of shorts for a classic chic style. The styling options are unlimited. Start off by wearing that one key piece that works for you and then you can build from there.

Like I always say, it’s totally okay to admire and be inspired by someone else’s style, but always include your personal style into your look. It’s what’s going to set you apart and it’s what makes you uniquely you.

This is a look that’s apart of my personal style because it’s classy. If you haven’t already, be sure to read the post about finding your personal style, here.

Casual Style On Hollywood Blvd.

When you think of casual style, what’s the first item that comes to mind?

 For me, the first item would be a pair of pants next, the shoe style and lastly, the top.  This is usually how I get dressed. I must first figure out which bottom I’d like to wear first. 

 

When you think of casual style, what’s the first item that comes to mind?

 For me, I must figure out which bottom I’d like to wear first. Next, I would focus on the style of shoe and lastly, the top.  This is usually how I get dressed.

Before moving to L.A., I didn’t realize how laid back and casual the style is here. I believe because of the award shows and television shows that are taped here, people automatically assume it’s full out glamour all the time and it’s not that at all.

A lot of individuals has this misconception about L.A. but you really don’t know much about it until you move here. There are a lot of stylish people here but the majority of the time you’ll see people dressed very casually, wearing a t-shirt & jeans with flats and you can’t forget a pair of sunglasses. The vibe is very mellow, free spirited and laid back, which fits perfectly with the clothing style.

Style Tip: Wearing heels doesn’t necessarily mean you’re dressed up and flats don’t mean you’re dressed down.

Everyone has his or her own version of what casual style looks like, and since style is subjective, no one is ever wrong.

This is my casual style simply walking across the street on Hollywood Blvd. I’m wearing a leather crop top from H&M & a pair of high-waisted pants from Forever 21. I completed my look with nude pumps from Lola Shoetique and of course sunglasses because hey, I do live in L.A. and it completes my casual style.

What’s your casual style? Remember the Style Tip: Wearing heels doesn’t necessarily mean you’re dressed up and flats don’t mean you’re dressed down.

Always include your personal style in everything you wear. Only wear items that make you feel and look beautiful.

Every woman has a pair of favorite jeans that she loves to wear with just about everything. It’s the pair that fits her just right and highlights all her curves.  Mines are the high-waisted stretch skinny jeans from H&M.

 

Every woman has a pair of favorite jeans that she loves to wear with just about everything. It’s the pair that fits her just right and highlights all her curves.  Mines are the high-waisted stretch skinny jeans from H&M.

Usually, when I buy jeans, I have to take them to the tailor to get them altered at the bottom because I don’t like any extra slack in my jeans but, with these, they fit perfectly at the ankle. Reason number one why they’re my favorite jeans.

Another reason why I LOVE these jeans is because of the price. I caught them on sale for only $7.00 so I bought a total of 3. This color and the blue denim wash was the only two that were on sale. They didn’t come with the slits on the knees I created those myself. With the denim blue style, I have a slit and non-slit pair. I wanted to get one more in this wash since I knew I was going to slit them at the knee but these were the last pair in my size (25).

Finding the right jeans that fit your body type doesn’t have to be expensive. As long as it fits your budget and body type that’s all that matters.

Since the wash is a smoke grey color, I decided to style it with a greyish black leather and tweed blazer also from H&M. Of course, I’ll show you plenty more ways you can wear both the jeans and the blazer. It’s important to maximize your pieces simply by styling them with other wardrobe staples. I completed my look with a burgundy fedora from Classy Closet and burgundy-structured handbag from H&M.

Jeans are a must-have because you can dress them up with a blazer like I’m wearing here or dress them down with a t-shirt and sneakers. Like I always say, it’s not what you wear but how you wear it. If you’re like me and love to dress up while flying, this is a great airport look that you can also wear to dinner with friends.  Be sure to always incorporate your personal style into everything you wear. It’s what makes you, you!!!

How To Elevate Your Look With The Right Shoe

Last year, I went to an event and won a free pair of shoes from ShoeDazzle. I was so excited because I shop with ShoeDazzle all the time and to be chosen as the winner of a FREE pair made my heart smile!

I received a credit towards any pair of my choice and after browsing the site for a few days, I finally decided on the Betty by Madison Pumps. 

 

Last year, I went to an event and won a free pair of shoes from ShoeDazzle. I was so excited because I shop with ShoeDazzle all the time and to be chosen as the winner of a FREE pair of shoes made my heart smile!

I received a credit towards any pair of my choice and after browsing the site for a few days, I finally decided on the Betty by Madison Pumps. I love when a pair of shoes have that sexy wow factor and the oversized bow was it for me.

What woman wouldn’t love to receive free shoes especially from a brand she’s totally obsessed with? I mean you can’t beat having a mean pair of shoes in your closet for only $39.95. That’s like unheard of but that’s why I love Shoedazzle and Just Fab!!! I can look stylish without breaking the bank and for me, that’s important because I always believed that you don’t have to spend your entire savings just to look fabulous. It’s all about having confidence and investing in the right key pieces that can be worn at least three or more different ways. I’ll show you how to get the most out of a fabulous pair of $39.95 shoes.

Here’s how I styled the Betty by Madison pumps:

I kept my ensemble really simple with a black crop top from Forever 21 and a black midi pencil skirt from H&M. I also kept my look very on brand and classy by adding a three-layer pearl necklace and a few pearl bracelets. Very Sexy and Classy.

I completed my look with a red lip, pearl earrings, and simple gold midi rings.  I added lavender nail polish to my manicure because I always believe in a pop of color that’s not your traditional matchy-matchy look.

Tip: When styling a look, wear at least one statement item. In this case, my statement item is the Betty by Madison pumps.

The right shoe can definitely elevate your look. I always receive so many compliments every time I decide to pull these out. They are the sexiest pair of shoes I own. With the oversized bow and polka-dot floral print combine, this shoe is definitely an eye-catching style.

Ladies, there’s more in stock, shop: Shoedazzle.

What You Must Know When Finding Your Personal Style

When it comes to personal style, it’s all about knowing yourself, what items work for your body type, what colors look great on your skin tone and your lifestyle.

If you’re having trouble with finding your personal style, think about a person whose style you admire. Figure out what you love about their style and implement it into your personal style. 

When it comes to personal style, it’s all about knowing yourself, what items work for your body type, what colors look great on your skin tone and your lifestyle.

If you’re having trouble finding your personal style, think about a person whose style you admire. Figure out what you love about their style and implement it into your personal style. It’s totally fine to be inspired by someone but never copy his or her entire look because that’s not being true to who you are.

Finding your personal style doesn’t have to be expensive. Here’s a complete price break down of my look:

Blue Blouse: $20 from H&M.

Flared Skirt: On sale for $9.99 at Forever 21.

Pumps: $28 Lola Shoetique

Handbag: $40 from H&M

Fur Jacket: On Sale for $40 from a boutique in New Orleans on Magazine St.

This entire look was less than $140. The secret is to invest in key pieces. You don’t have to spend a lot to look & feel fabulous.

 

Tip: Before purchasing an item you should be able to think of at least 3 different ways it can be worn.

The cream fur jacket can be worn dressed up like I’m wearing here or dressed down with a pair of jeans, pumps and a handbag. Flare skirt can be worn with a denim top and a pair of flats for more of a chill relaxed look & the blue blouse can go with just about any bottom from slacks to jeans. It’s all about remixing your pieces and maximizing your wardrobe.

 

This is a great look to wear to Sunday brunch after church or to a fashion show. The styling options are unlimited. Stay tuned to see how I elevated this look just by adding a few key pieces.

How To Style A Statement Necklace

Tip: Best way to style a statement necklace: Wear with solid colors so your necklace can make a statement. It’s your stand out accessory!

Styling black with pearls is definitely a classic and you can never go wrong with either.  Just research Coco Chanel!

This is a great look to wear to a holiday party because the sequin leggings scream “Heyyyyy I have arrived!!!” You can also wear this look to a creative business meeting because the cape blazer gives off a stylish business vibe. The lists of places are endless. Just make sure you own it by adding your personal style to complete the look. I wore this to church while visiting family in New Orleans but will definitely remix the blazer with a pencil skirt and add gold accessories while attending a fashion event here in Los Angeles. This is definitely a style you can wear to any type of stylish event.

I’ve always been on the fence about styling nude & black together but since I purchased these nude pumps, they’ve definitely been my go-to shoe. Therefore, I decided to give them a try with this look. After wearing this, I’m no longer on the fence about styling nude and black together but what really enhanced this style is the statement pearl and peach necklace. There’s so much power in a statement necklace. As you can see here, a statement necklace can take your look from 0 to 100! It ties everything in and gives it a complete color balance.

 

Speaking of color balance; my hair, lips, and handbag really flow and this wasn’t planned at all. This structured satchel handbag from H&M has been my go to because of the style and the color.  It’s so roomy with lots of compartments & it’s the perfect burgundy color that’s always stylish during the fall/winter seasons. Since I knew this bag was going to be in heavy rotation, I decided to purchase a lip color to match. I’m wearing Cabaret Blend by Milani. Now, on to my hair color, this wasn’t something planned at all. I was just over black hair and needed a vibrant color along with my signature haircut so I changed my hair color to burgundy and that’s how everything flowed into place. Sometimes when you know exactly what you want and don’t over think things, everything flows.

 

And to add the finishing touches, I’m wearing hot pink nails! I’m the type of woman who loves to wear random pops of color, especially on my nails. Very seldom will my nails and entire ensemble match. I enjoy stepping out of the box and not playing it safe when it comes to my personal style.

 

If you only had the cape blazer and sequin leggings to work with, how can you add your personal style to this look? How would you accessorize and what color balance would you try? Let me know under this picture on Instagram @ParisHatcher or Tweet me @ParisMHatcher. I’m excited to hear all your styling ideas!!

Vintage Again!

I don’t believe I’ll ever get tired of shopping vintage pieces in my mom’s closet. I always find hidden gems with a good story about when and where she wore each garment. This vintage black and white stripe ruffle skirt is my latest find. It came with a long lightweight matching jacket that I believe I’ll pair with denim or white distressed jeans just to give it a different look.

I wanted to go for a more unexpected look so I paired this vintage ruffle skirt with a crop top t-shirt from H&M and a pair of minimalist sandals from Just Fab.

I also switched up my hair, do you like? I haven’t had a color in 8 years so I figured I was way overdue so I consulted with my hairstylist and she executed my vision perfectly, Ombre bob!

Oh! And this clutch is vintage as well…you should already know how I came about it…shopping in my mom’s closet. When I think I own all her fab vintage pieces, she comes out the closet with more but I don’t mind at all.

Wrapping Up 2013, Stylishly

♥ Wrapping up 2013 in a felt floppy hat and a fur vest. This year was amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing even if I could. I traveled internationally, graduated from Graduate school and grew so much as a businesswoman. Therefore, I’m looking forward to 2014 being an even better year for me while going after more opportunities. I hope everyone has a blessed and prosperous New Year. Remember to set goals for yourself, create a vision board, pray over your dreams and keep God first!  Hope you enjoy this stylish post! You’ll see me remixing this hat again in 2014 😉
