The Full Button!

Shirt: J Crew

I’m seeing, what I’ve dubbed, “The Full Button” a lot around LA but I can’t imagine it’s happening too often in other areas of the country (except maybe NYC…and Portland). Buttoning the very top button of your oxford shirt was always something I equated with being in a gang or something silly like that but what I’m starting to notice is that it’s a nice way to dress up your outfit without wearing a tie. It’s also a fine way of staying just a little bit warmer in these winter months.

It’s certainly not for everyone, but if you find yourself wanting to stand out yet not wanting to wear something totally ridiculous, I think this is a fun statement to make.

Shirt: Uniqlo

These days, it’s all about diversity. If something you can wear to a wedding also works around the house, it’s a no-brainer, right???

People might make fun, but if you let that determine your style then you’ve got it all wrong. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m a strong believer in (almost) anyone being able to pull something off. All it takes is enjoying how you look (full write up on this coming soon…). People will instantly be able to tell if you’re tentative about what you have on, so don’t question it, rock “The Full Button” and hit the streets (or sidewalks, preferably, people don’t like buttoned up gang members roaming the streets).

I hail from the Midwest but have been dwelling in Los Angeles for the last few years being a pretty stereotypical west coast transplant. I'm a fashion geek, I love to walk (a LOT) and I do my best to find the bright side. I'm extremely excited about this blog and hope that (with some hard work and luck) it turns into what I believe it can.
