Hey Funkytown, I’m Alexandra. I’m so excited to be here with y’all every week as a style contributor! Just like you, I am continuously blessed by our dynamic city and all that it has to offer. In a nutshell, I’m the ultimate melting pot with a big heap of Southern Comfort. I die for dark lipstick, curse all terrible drivers, drool over French macaroons and believe that big hair is the way to heaven. Yes, it’s true that I would do unmentionable things for red bottom shoes, but at the end of the never-ending day, life isn’t about the haves and have-nots. It’s about what I’m doing and who’s with me along the way. You can also keep up with me on my personal blog Diva Dekleva.
What’s going on as of late? Well, anyone paying attention knows that Texas is living up to her reputation and giving us all her seasons at once. It’s tough though to make informed outfit decisions when we deal with the combination of monsoon, blizzard and tornado. These boyfriend jeans have been such a staple for me lately, either with a chunky knit sweater or a basic flowy tank. As a black leather skinny jeans girl, I was hesitant. You can find them at Esther Penn boutique right here in Fort Worth. Every time I send girlfriends to shop there, they always leave with the best wardrobe ever and new friends.
And about these fabulous booties - now is the time to steal all of your favorite winter styles for less. Light suede is just asking to get red wine spilled on it, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take. I love how these jeans and booties mix and match so effortlessly. Hopefully our Arctic tundra will soon turn into a little California interlude before the Texan desert hits. Again, I cannot wait to connect with y’all through this blog and share weekly fashion inspiration as well as some of my favorite looks from local stores and beyond. Just think, there will be Tuesday Shoesday, spring break essentials and more.
