Costumes You Can Wear Again: Sherlock

Hello all! I have yet another fun Halloween look to share. This week I decided to try my hand at channeling my favorite consulting detective and high functioning sociopath Sherlock!

I have to admit I REALLY love this outfit, the purple dress is very reminiscent of the infamous Purple Shirt of Sex (don’t be alarmed its a fandom thing), I feel like my coat is pretty spot on, my tights remind me ever so slightly of the glorious wallpaper that is in Holmes and Watson’s flat, and what’s more English than a pair of oxfords?

Ya I’m pretty proud of this look and hope you all love it as much as I do.

Coat: H&M/Similar

Heels: Payless

So what do you guys think? Was I able to do the look justice? Are you a fan of BBC’s Sherlock? If so are you dying for season 4 as much as I am? I’d love to hear from you, so drop me a line even if its just to say hi. Happy Wednesday!

Fashion Friday: Onzie’s Fall Line

Its that time of year again folks, Fall! Now while it may not mean cooler temperatures for everyone (its still upper 90’s here in Texas) it does mean companies are releasing their fall lines, and no one does fall better than Onzie. I just adore this company, they’re 100% made in the USA which is difficult to find these days, their designs are so beautiful its impossible to be in a bad mood while wearing them, and the obscenely comfortable fabric choices and cuts are out of this world!

This year Onzie’s fall line is inspired by “Mystic Metal” and this resulted in me wanting one of everything in every print! Honestly I’ve never had a more difficult time narrowing down what I wanted. The metallic finishes and rich pigments really create something special.

Eventually I was able to make a firm decision and I’m thrilled with my two different looks that I get to share with you! They’re both a little different than my usual style and I’m so thrilled I decided to branch out and try something new!

Look 1.059006990621074306720675PicMonkey Collage07100611Sweatshirt: Onzie¬†A sweatshirt cut, onzie’s ultra lightweight fast drying free flow jersey material, and stunning “Chicago” print combine perfectly to create the ideal fall workout top. Whether you live in a cooler climate or you’re still putting up with the heat like me this top is still an excellent choice, the longer sleeves will fight the cold, but the fabric still breathe and is quick drying for all that sweating you’ll be doing during your yoga practice or all the sweating you do just by living somewhere warm ;).

Bra top: Onzie¬†I was a little concerned this particular cut wasn’t going to be very flattering on me, that the back might result in some unsightly back fat rolls or something due to the cage like structure, I’m happy to report not only did that not happen, but the cut is in fact fabulously flattering and ever so feminine, I already want it in more prints. Onzie really understands how to dress¬†everyone’s shape. Their¬†bra tops keep you supported but they’re far more gentle than traditional high impact sports bras. Hooray for not worrying about falling out of your top, and hooray for not wearing something with a¬†comfort level comparable to that of Kevlar.

Capri’s: Onzie¬†I have no idea why it took me so long to finally get a pair of capris from Onzie. I swear capri yoga pants will now forever be in my rotation. They are sooooo comfortable and actually flatter my super short legs. These capris are¬†the perfect option when you want bottoms¬†that are a little cooler but don’t feel like showing quite as much skin by wearing shorts, I have found a new favorite you guys.

Look 2.

Leggings: Onzie¬†How fun are these leggings? The royal navy blue and mesh tuxedo stripe really take something as basic as leggings over the top turn them into one heck of a fashion statement. It never ceases to amaze me how Onzie can take something that I consider “risky” to wear and turn¬†it into something that makes me feel unstoppable. Leggings can quite literally be the most unflattering garment a lady wears in her lifetime, but through quality construction, brilliant color choices, and supportive fabric Onzie beats the odds. I also want to stress that while yes I preach on and on about how supportive Onzie pieces are, they are equally comfortable and breathable. Its like wearing a second skin, your movement isn’t the least bit restricted, the clothes move with you, which is so vital in yoga. I mean does anyone want to be tugging at their clothes while their trying to not fall over in standing bow pose? No.

All in all I couldn’t be more thrilled with my Onzie gear and highly recommend you check them out, this new fall line is one of their best yet! Working out isn’t always fun but that doesn’t mean your clothes shouldn’t be fun either. Happy Friday my loves! Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did.
