Below the Knees

Style is a simple way of saying complicated things.  Jean Cocteau …. Like that I dress like my mother. A Note from Rags Revisited: Unfortunately Summer has come to a rapid halt. For many of us this change of season indicates that our three-month long lunch break is over. Back to work.  I on the other hand take this seasonal metamorphosis as an opportunity to closet cleanse. During the seasonal cleanse I rid my closet of clothing I will never wear in an effort to get rid of the old and diy into new. Let me be Frank , the…

Easy Breezy DIY: Denim Top

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” Coco Chanel A Note From Rags Revisited: I have not had the chance to post (at least as much as I  would like too). I’ve been juggling work,  an internship and attempting to  set aside time to develop material for this baby. Lately, a lot of my diy projects have required as little skill as possible, so that I can make new looks that are easy and fast to produce. I was gifted a pair of joggers from a brand called Almost Famous. Not only did the brand  have such cute pieces, the name for…

The Jean in the Jeanius Bar. A Denim Cutoff DIY.

Never let a trend get in the way of creating a great outfit for yourself. Stacy London  A Note From Rags Revisited: Many of my summer posts will feature diy projects for denim cutoffs. Let’s face it denim shorts will always be a summer staple. I have news for you! They’re an easy diy. I’ve been customizing my denim as far as I can remember.  My  worn in  jeans became short shorts  well before the idea of a Jeanius  bar flooded the fashion market. Now, everyone is jumping on the  pum-pum cutoff bandwagon. You can find a display denim choices along with options to…

When Life Gives You Denim… An easy DIY That Will Make Your Denim Stand Out From The Rest.

“Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping” – Bo Derek A Note From Rags Revisited: I have a habit of hoarding clothing. The truth is I struggle to throw out clothing that may only get a wear or two in my lifetime. Now mind you… I do not have a problem. My dysfunction is not to be confused with those who compulsively store objects of “value”  hiding every crevice of linoleum. I’m not quite there yet. I mean… my closet is there but (and that’s a big but) you can still see the floor. So…

F.I.T x Denim Project

Action is the foundational key to all success.  Pablo Picasso I haven’t posted in a long time. Prior to creating my blog I made a vow  to be married to the idea of blogging consistently.  This  promise would mean daily dedication, weekly commitment in conjunction with creating new material. I must remind you (or rather myself).  I am a student,  full-time employee and even bigger dreamer. So tell me how do  I become the “We Wore What”, or “The Blonde Salad” of blogging (whose salary is grossed at 8 million a year, Ouch!) if  I don’t have the time to blog? Then I…

Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself. Oscar de la Renta I usually start every entry with a quote that I think ties the post together. It’s like putting a bow on a nicely wrapped gift. Today I felt compelled to post a quote in honor of Oscar De La Renta, a fashion legend.  Although a bit modest, he was right to suggest that fashion is about dressing according to what’s deemed fashionable. That’s the immediate understanding of the term. For those who worship fashion, when a legend who has impacted the fashion industry suddenly…
