Men’s Fashion Friday: Meet Joel Camey

It's been more than a year since I last featured a male fashionista here on my blog so I thought it's about time to do a feature once again! I personally enjoy looking at men who know how to dress well. Not all men are fashion-conscious so whenever I see one, it is quite refreshing and Joel Camey is not one to pass my fashion eyes without notice.

In fact, being the stylish man that he is, Joel was recently featured in a prominent luxury local magazine in Houston called Modern Luxury as one of the stylish men in Houston for their April Issue. You can check it out here.

Joel is the lead guitarist at Lakewood Church, America's largest church which is based here in Houston. I happen to be a part of the choir so I see him pretty close (Ladies and gent, I must add this disclaimer here:  I'm not stalking, he's married to such a lovely and gorgeous lady. *Wink*). I just can't help but notice his polished look every Sunday – suit, tie, pocket square, and a flower lapel. I thought that's pretty neat. I am all for polished look, especially for church, and Joel knows how to be #freshfortheLord – his hashtag for the Sunday looks he creates. His fashion-forward skinny pants will make you look at him twice and the flower lapel will make you smile. Yes, real fashionable men can wear and pull off a flower lapel.

Speaking of flower lapel, Joel along with his wife Lacy, recently launched a men's accessories line called K-ME Wear. The flower lapel and tie that you see in his outfit below are from his K-ME Wear line. They carry fashion-forward and statement flower lapels for men as well as ties and pocket squares. I suggest checking them out! Ladies, these are subtle ways of making your man look stylish and fashionable. He'll thank you so much for it later!

Joel's fashion philosophy is to look like a million bucks without having to spend a million bucks. That's why his own affordable accessories line came about. This philosophy is definitely evident in his style. He likes to dress up and is not afraid to make a statement by wearing bold pieces and bright colors. A part of his style, according to Joel, is influenced by European fashion culture.

Follow Joel on Instagram 'joelcamey" to see more of his looks and K-ME Wear "kmewear" to see more of who's wearing what from their product line.

 

"To me, a suit is a blank canvas and accessories are the paint, brilliant colors to create the art, the style, the personality. And every day you get to start over again." – Joel Camey

Can't decide between polka dots and stripes? No problem! Wear them both! Yup, when you do that, they call that "coordinates" in fashion. Probably one of the terms I learned in our made-to-order business while I was growing up. I think that if for whatever reason I end up working in the corporate world, I would totally be shocking my boss and my co-workers everyday with the colors and patterns that I will be wearing to work. That will either inspire them to catch up with my fashion or fire me. Ha! Anyway, I know that many of you are working gals and you're looking for some work-friendly outfit inspiration. Today's outfit is a mixture of patterns with pops of color here and there. For some, this might be a little too much going on but for those of you who think this is fun, it totally is! Mixing polka dots and stripes isn't unusual at all. For as long as I've known fashion, I know that this is widely used. I don't believe you can find polka dots blazer or jacket very often but thankfully Jane.com had this in one of their deals (link above). On this post, I also showed you how you can easily transition the look from work to play, with as simple as removing the jacket! I didn't change my handbag here but in case you're transitioning to a night look from work, instead of having a bright handbag, you can use a black clutch or something. I totally love the versatility of these pieces from Poof Apparel. Oh did you notice my bright yellow handbag? Hard not to huh! It's from Galian Handbags and I really recommend them. Check out the bunny watch from Charming Charlie too! Isn't that the cutest thing ever? I promise I can be like a child sometimes! But who doesn't want a bunny watch anyways? *Wink*

In case you're wondering what FALBD means…well…you probably have an idea of what the LBD stands for – Little Black Dress. You're right. What does the FA mean then? Freaking Amazing! I am not a big fan of black, not even of LBDs. Even at evening events that I go to, I hardly ever wear a black dress. The only time I wear black is on Sundays because our choir dress color code is black and purple. So for me to wear a black dress…it must be a really amazing dress and to me, this LBD from Eight 23 Boutique  sure is a winner. It has cut outs on the sides and they go all the way in the back which makes it so sexy. The full circle bottom part of it is exactly how I wanted it to be – puffy! The tiny bow along the waist band is adorable, giving the dress that childish and playful touch. And what better color for shoes to match it with than red? I couldn't think of any other color that is more intense and more sexy to pop off this outfit than red. Of course, you just can't help but wear red lipstick too! What do you think? Hello hello! *Wink*

Has anybody worn white jeans or jeggings yet since the beginning of Spring? I personally have but didn't show it on my blog, it was just one of those "I have to run some errands!" days. White, mint green, and coral is definitely a Spring favorite color combination by many of us.  They just never get old. The colors are so chic and so feminine. All the pieces I'm wearing here are from Deb Shops, with the exception of the sunnies which are from Sunglass Warehouse and the Lyke Watch. Deb Shops is really a one-stop shop for me because they pretty much has everything a budget fashionista could ask for – from tops, bottoms, dresses, basics, accessories, jewelries, and shoes, all at very affordable prices. They often do a massive sale too so always be on the look out for those because you will definitely get a lot for your buck. Anyway, hope you like today's outfit inspiration. It's very wearable, stylish, and yet still comfortable.

I'm back with a series of outfits this week! Last week was pretty hectic due to a lot of meetings but this week I am excited to share a ton of looks with you. To start it off, how about this summery dress from Catch Bliss Boutique? It's super adorable. I especially love the shade of pink – it's neon but it's still muted from being bright neon. And it's also not quite the chevron print you'd think. If you'd take a closer look, the diagonal shapes aren't necessarily merging on one end like a regular chevron, this is more like zig-zagging but they do appear chevron-like from afar…thus chevron with a twist. To make it a bit more work-friendly, I threw in a jacket from Romwe. The material is really thick so it's not good for summer but for a cold work environment, it will work. The whole outfit is matchy-matchy in mint green and pink…did you notice? I think it's become my favorite combination this Spring. The necklace from Loopsway…the bag from Delavion…the shoes from Style Up Girl…aaaahhhhhh….they are just a match made in heaven!

One thing a truely girly girl will have in her closet is sequins – sequin skirt, sequin top, sequin dress. Anything that has sequins. The great thing about sequins in fashion these days is that they are no longer for just night dresses…they can also be worn on day. With just the right amount of sequin embellishment, a piece of clothing item can totally be worn during the day. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Whether it's the holidays or not, we can now wear sequins. So this skirt from Venus isn't totally fully sequined. It's got other embellishments as well which are great. The aqua and gold color combination are lovely and the length is quite modest, unlike other sequin skirts I have. Again, like many other pieces I have worn here on my blog, this skirt is something that you can wear both day and night. I decided to go with a day look with this one because I wanted to wear this awesome anchor sweater, also from Venus. If you love the nautical trend, you will surely love this sweater. It's very light and loosed so you don't have to worry about feeling warm in it. The anchor itself is sequined. I really like it!

Now the wedges…they are a piece of art! Part of the wedges has glass. Now it may not always catch everyone's attention but a true shoe lover will definitely notice it. I believe it also comes in green and brown color scheme.

Lastly, if you love all things monogrammed, you will have also noticed by now my monogrammed clutch and iPhone case from Gigi New York. They honestly have the most vibrant colored clutches I have ever seen. The best part of course is that they can be monogrammed. They also have iPhone cases, journals, and little To-Do-List notebooks, and other handbag styles, including totes.

Let's admit it…we don't always feel like dressing up and we don't always dress up just to do errands or do stuff. That's busting myth #1 about women that we're always dressed up. Myth #2 is that we always have to wear heels because wearing flats is a crime. Heck no! Seriously, nobody dies wearing flats. Ha! I bet you almost all of us, even the Hollywood celebrities, wear flats on a daily basis, except on special occasions. You can see papparazzi photos of celebrities as proof. That said, here's my version of lazy day outfit. Okay fine, I must admit, I get a little bit lazier looking than this. The point is there are times when we just want to be comfortable. Aside from a t-shirt of course, the next best thing to being comfy is a chambray button downs. It's comfortable and cozy but it doesn't make you look sloppy even if you pair it with lounge shorts like the one I'm wearing here. So casual and chic. I don't always see polka dot chambray so this one from Grayson Shop is a winner. Also notice that to bring life to the outfit, I added pop of color pink: bag, shoes, and necklace. Not to mention the pink sunnies. In case any of the items I'm wearing catches your attention, please be sure to click the links on the Outfit Recap. This pink satchel from Galian Handbags is definitely a favorite right now. Anyway, hope this outfit inspired your lazy days! Toodles…

A Little Girl in a White BHLDN Dress

My niece is back! First of all, I'd like to apologize to BHLDN because this is a looooooong overdue post! We tried shooting this dress previously but for some reason I didn't like how it came out but the weather didn't permit us to re-shoot Nehrielle outdoors because she might get sick so we had to wait for the warmer days. Thankfully, it was perfect when we went to Brenham, TX the other day. Nehrielle was also a trooper! I think she really enjoyed the shoot and just being in the field of wild flowers. Her BHLDN Luca flower girl dress is perfect for the blue bonnets backdrop and I thought it came out awesome. BHLDN carries AMAZING bridal and wedding party dresses. They are so classy and elegant. If you're in the market for some of these and you've never heard of BHLDN, you definitely have to check them out.
