A Fashion Lovers Paradise: The Anna Wintour Costume Center at The Met

Hi, loves! 

I am in the process of moving all of Fashionable Cents over to my new blog The Angela Diaries, but I figure while I'm working on that I couldn't possibly deprive my loyal Fashionable Cents-ers a glimpse of a few of my latest posts. Here's one from earlier in the year; my trip to the MET had me swooning for all things FASHION... read on if you please...

The picture below says it all, at least regarding my expression as we explored the"Masterworks; Unpacking Fashion"exhibit at The Met.... I was sort of floating on air. Let's be honest, that happened the moment I stepped into NYC, but the steps of The Met were a heaven all on their own, and this was one of my personal favorite exhibits to explore... 


XL

VIKTOR & ROLF

L
This Viktor and Rolf Ballgown is the first dress you see when you walk into the exhibit. Of course, it's striking and bold, catching more than your eye straight away. Go ahead and put me in this dress any day of the week. 

VERSACE

L
I loved seeing the historical and vintage pieces up close and personal that this exhibit showcased, but most of all I loved seeing iconic dresses like this Versace Clothespin dress... famously worn by Elizabeth Hurley on the arm of Hugh Grant. Sigh, the nineties were a special time weren't they? 
 
DIOR

L
Oh, Dior 

I died for this jacket, if one could call it something as simple as a jacket. The detail and the dramatic peplum shape alone were enough to make me swoon.... 

CHANEL

L
I love how timeless and classy Chanel is. This dress is quintessential Chanel and I loved every bit of it.  The detailed cuffs and belting...and well everything... it's Chanel! 

Fashion, will always be a love affair of mine, but words... words hold the dearest place in my heart. So of course, I had to snap this quote by Anna Wintour herself. 

L

I'll leave you with this favorite of mine by Alexander McQueen, famously worn by one of my favorite fashion icon characters, Effie in the Hunger Games. 

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

L
To me, this is what fashion is all about. Seeing the up close and personal detail and design behind every piece, the pure creativity and talent that goes into making a dress of this caliber... it truly is it's own Art, and I will forever be an admirer. 
 
Of course, like everyone who visits The MET, I didn't see half of it! So, I can't wait to go back and explore more. What's your favorite look from the Costume Center?

"Shop Girl"

Thus has been my title as of late & I can truly say it has pretty much absorbed every aspect of my online life. I've been working hard on building the online store for Twisted Soul Sisters 
(A Local Boutique in Tulsa, Oklahoma) So every Facebook Post, Tweet, Pin, & Yes, Blog has been centered around all things "Twisted" 

Hence, yet again another excuse for the lack of Fashionable Cents. 
I'll come around one day, I'm sure of it.  

In the mean time I wanted to share with you guys the online shop & some of my personal favorite items from the store!  

There's me & my amazing coworker Lisa (shoutout for Lisa!) modelling the Elan Hi Lo Cowl Neck Dress. I love how it drapes & hugs in all the right places.  



The Nubuck by Liberty Black 
The Booties have Coachella 2016 written all over them. Aka. I must have them. 



This ones a little random next to the dresses & booties, but it must be said, it's better than a pedicure. 
$25 & an hour in front of the TV (Scandal anyone?) & voila. 
 A week later your little footsies will start shedding all that dead skin you've tried to pummus to death. Living proof? My husband. 


Happy Happy Happy Monday to you lovelies. 

Stay Fashionable & Keep your Cent$ about you ;) 
XO

Springs Riskiest Trends

The Warmer temp's are finally here, and with a new season, in the fashion world, comes new fads, trends, or risks as I like to call them. We're told to stay away from trends & stick with the classics, maybe for your wedding I'll agree, but what's another boring old Monday without a risk or two? What is it the kids are calling it these days... YOLO. 
Oh gosh, I just Yolo'd.
Spring's Riskiest Trends


Trend/ Risk #1. Palazzo Pants
So you don't want to feel like you're wearing pajamas to the office, or let's think smaller, to run errands. But really ladies, who doesn't want to wear pajamas anyways? If their staring their jealous. Moto. 

Trend/Risk #2 Crop Tops
I get these aren't for everyone, but don't forget to think big picture. 
There's plenty of options for hiding unwanted tummy baring while still rocking the fad. Like, high wasted pants, shorts & skirts, a lace underlay, or a blazer/jacket. Done & Done.

Trend/Risk #3 Mixing Patterns, Texturs, & Just about Everything
It's pretty much common knowledge nowadays that there are no longer rules in Fashion.
So take a walk on the wild side. Wear some Palazzo Pants, or don't. It's your closet after all.


P.S. If you do like anything pictured above, the links are below for your indulgence.

Stay Fabulous. XO

From Winter to Spring

Disclaimer: This post was originally written a few weeks ago, which in "Tulsa Time" could easily mean two or three seasons ago. We have gratefully all drawn much closer to reaching Spring but I figured this outfit was too cute to sit in my drafts. From Winter to Spring

Is it just me or does the jump from Winter to Spring seem like the distance of the grand canyon? Winter seems to drag on & on while all of our favorite stores flaunt floral dresses & pretty sandals as if we wouldn't all freeze our behinds off.  Maybe I'm a bit bitter (literally) because last week there was snow on the ground, this week its finally felt like spring, but that dang weather man is telling me winter isn't over yet. Why God?! Nonetheless here is my foolproof guide to breaking out some of your summer pieces, without looking like an utter fool. You can thank me later.
