Outfit du Jour - Black and Blue

My new favorite pants, so blue, so cool.  This top is also a favorite that I was forced to buy (ok maybe not forced but strongly encouraged)  It is so not me, but I was trying to step out of the box and decided I'd give it a try.  And I'm glad I did, because it's super cute and has shoulder pads.  Small shoulder pads.... And these shoes by the way, were $20.  My favorite local boutique Fabrik always has the best finds.  Anyway, looks like I finally found my new photo spot.  Glad I found you friend, you're going to be my new lunch buddy.

Happy Wednesday!  And have a great Thanksgiving!

Outfit Du Jour - Classic Combinations

I used to fight my mom on tucking my shirt in, wearing tights, cleaning my room.... Well here I am. Shirt tucked in, tights on and I just cleaned my room.  This ones for you Mom.

You can't go wrong with black and cream and you definitely can't go wrong with a fun textured tight like these from Hue.  Today is 75 degrees in Atlanta, so the short skirt is for you weather man.  Thanks for the warm weather, but confusing the hell out of my wardrobe choices.

Reader Q&A | How To Tie A Scarf

The weather is officially getting too cold to handle and it's time to whip out my scarf collection.  I've seen several scarf ideas on Pinterest and this particular one is going to be my new go to on how to tie my scarf up.  Check out the video HERE.  It's number 10 on the Pinterest list.

A Fancy Decal

I recently saw on Pinterest (I think people are getting tired of hearing me start a sentence like this) a KitchenAid mixer that was painted and had a beautiful print on it.  At first I thought they were decals, but it turns out it's a custom paint job costing well over $300.  I'm on a budget so I was slightly disappointed.  But never fail, Etsy came to my rescue.  My other new addiction, Etsy, seems to be full of affordable decal ideas that can be used on anything from your KitchenAid, walls, refrigerator and even your laptop.  Pretty genius and it's an affordable and easy non permanent way to change things up a bit.

Sequins and Lace - Pinterest Inspiration

Doing some morning Pinterest browsing and am falling in love with sequins and lace.  It seems to be on every detail in every store this season.  Skirts, shorts, pants, shirts and dresses are all embellished with sequins and lace.  Make this trend new and modern with a bright color like this pink lace skirt so you steer clear of looking like you're wearing your grandmother's table cloth.  All images courtesy of Pinterest.  As many of you have googled endlessly for this pink lace pinterest skirt, it's available at Sabo Skirt!  Also, find a similar version of the lace shorts here.

Give Em The Cold Shoulder

I wasn't sure about this one, but now I'm a full fledged fan and need one ASAP.  I'm pretty much obsessed with these tops and will be on a hunt for one to work into my closet this week.  Kourtney Kardashian was seen wearing one with son Mason at the park.  She has become my  new favorite fashion icon.  Sorry Kim K, but Kourt's got you beat these days.  It's a new twist on a button down and a new way to show some skin.  Loving it!

And The Winner Is....

I want to first of all say how exciting it was to have my first giveaway.  My blog is just a tiny little idea that is still well very tiny.  Thanks to the very few of you who entered, it's motivation to keep growing my little baby, My Style Vita.  

And the winner is.... Christy!  Congratulations on winning this Lighthouse dress from Shabby Apple!  Please contact ME for details.

Looking forward to more giveaways and hopefully, just hopefully, one day there will be thousands of entries which would make me feel quite amazing.  But I do have to say, this still made my day being able to giveaway a great dress to a lucky reader!

Fashion 101

My sister seems to always call me asking me a random question because she knows I'm full of completely and utterly useless information.  Her and her BFF will always say "what's that term again? I don't know, call Jessi she'll know".  And sadly, I always know, and I always have a story or some weird fun fact about whatever it might be.  During our trip to Italy, the joke was, "what's Jessi's fun fact of the hour?".  I'm just full of random shit, and I figured I'd put it to good use.  I assume all of you wouldn't mind hearing about a fun fact every week, not every hour.  So today start's the new series of Fashion 101.  A completely random and probably useless fashion fact or a term, a type of fabric, definition, whatever.  Something new to learn that you hopefully didn't already know.  If you have any fun interesting fashion facts, please feel free to email me them HERE.

Today's Fashion 101 lesson is on something basic.  Types of sleeves.  I saw this perfect post on Pinterest and thought I would share. It's great to know which types of sleeve look best on you.  I know I look even wider with a puff or flutter sleeve, so I keep these limited and have to find the best one.  Kimono and Dolman are also two that I steer clear from.  They just don't work on me.  When you know what looks best on you, it helps make shopping even easier.  I know to NEVER try on Dolman sleeves, and when I give in and do, I always say, "why do I keep trying this ugly shit on, I look like crap".  It helps cut down on shopping time and getting straight to the point.

Don't forget to enter my Giveaway!
