Lookbook: Going Red And Military

IMG_9875_logo

The lovely military blazer is from ChicShop.ca, it’s a great site to pick up one-of-a-kind vintage stuff as well it also carries new items from brands such as BB Dakota and Motel Rocks.

I've been wearing predator prints a lot lately. It’s like I’m a predator! I kid I kid. I’m not even the type to ask for favors. For Pop Champagne, I have never asked someone to help advertise, leave blog comments to join my blog, nor abuse it to my advantage to get a bunch of free stuff. My dad has taught me not to inconvenient others unless I need to. But I very much appreciate when I get a shout out, and blogspot has allowed me to meet some wonderful bloggers!

But the saying “if you don’t ask, the answer is always no” is also true. And there are times when you do need to ask and it is okay. But I'm a believer of doing the best you can and let your work speak for itself. And if something is meant to be then it will happen. What about you?

  6. TOTAL believer that your work speaks for itself. I was also brought up to believe that I shouldn't bother people by asking them for their "help". I like to think if it's meant to be, then it'll happen :)

  9. You look gorgeous in that outfit! I love the military-style blazer, red is a great color on you. By asking do you mean asking for free clothing? I'm not sure what you mean in your write up?

  10. I do my best on my own *and* I ask a lot of questions, so I think both views are fine ;)

    And the outfit is AMAZING! Shoes, dress, blazer, purse - loving all of it :)

  16. Love this look! Those studded heels remind me of the totally popular Vince Camuto heels which i LOVE!

  17. Hey =)

    As always YOUR fashions are my "guilty pleasure". That purse, it's hot *Paris Hilton voice* I agree with the statement "If you don't ask, the answer is no". The "work" ALWAYS speaks for itself, but it doesn't help if no one even knows its out there. Kind of like the quote; "Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing, but nobody else does."

    So I guess there's a certain way to ask without without asking tho. I don't like to ask either, but I do tell :) Only once tho, ha.

  19. Nice! You look great in the red jacket.

    I know what you mean about not wanting to pester others. If people want to enter my giveaway or enjoy or support my blog, that's fantastic and I'm so glad to hear it. But at the same time I'm not going to harass anyone.

  21. Julie, you look wonderful! Aren't your legs COLD?! How do you still have snow? It's burning hot already in Texas and I have to make sure I get my SPF on before I leave the house and can't bear to drive without A/C!

  22. Your guess is as good as mine -__-" I'm glad u like the swatches though! : D WOO!

    ReplyDelete
  23. you look gorgeous! :) there's a comment I liked here by Tuesdai Noelle because it's exactly what I was thinking when I read the last paragraph of your post. I don't like asking either, and I don't like to advertise at all.

    and hey! snow! wow :x hope you get some warmth soon!!

  31. Ooooh, is that a red velvet jacket? =0D Nice splash of animal print and I love how you spruced up a LBD!

  32. She's purrrrdy! =)

    I'm not comfortable tooting my own horn. I'm lucky I have co-workers who do that for me. And I hate asking for help, but I have learned to accept when offered--sometimes.

    You definitely have a toot-worthy blog and blogs are their owners, so that makes you toot-worthy too. That sounds weird!

    I found out from Jo that you stuffed her package with lots of unexpected goodies. That was very kind of you. But darn, that sounds weird too. I must be having an off day. Anyway, I don't remember how I found your blog, but I owe someone a big thank you for being the link.

  44. Cool pumps! Seems like studded pumps are the thing right now.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ooo I love your outfit - the colour of your blazer and the studs on your high heels :) Very nice!!!
    No I don't ask for favours unless it's family....but even then I usually don't bother. Like my parents always offer to buy me groceries and drop it off for me (since it's cheaper to buy groceries in the suburbs where they live as oppose to downtown where I live) but I almost always say no. I don't ask people to join my blog either and I hate it when people say, "I followed you please follow back." Nooooo....LOL It's like, no it doesn't work that way. At least for me.
    You know..I had to google "predator print" but I still don't it...is it a brand of clothes you are wearing specific to a brand?
