Five of In Style's eleven fab suggestions, done!
In Style's Look # 8: Sport an Oversize Cuff
"Wonder Woman’s not the only one who knows
the power of a bold cuff bracelet—
it makes a strong statement and can be the only jewelry your outfit requires.
Diane Kruger accents a sexy one-shoulder dress with a bejeweled cuff
while Kate Winslet pairs a simple gold-tone version with her body-con dress."
My only cuff, from Forever 21.

In Style's Look #4: Slip on Pointy-Toe Heels
"While boots are always a smart choice with pants,
pointy-toe heels are a fresh option right now.
Bonus: They make legs look longer and skinnier, no matter what you’re wearing.
Charlize Theron dresses up her jeans with a pair of black heels
and Michelle Monaghan adds a pop of color with a pair of red ones."

3rd Look of Eleven, done!
Yes, I've found me another fashion challenge. Read about it here.
In Style's Look #1: Look for a Slouchy Trouser
"While we'll always love our skinnies,
slouchy trousers are a fresh option when it comes to pants this season.
Look for a pleated, wool pair like Charlize Theron's for the office.
A white pair worn with a sequined top a la Kristen Bell
are a chic option for holiday parties.
Keep the hem short or tuck them in to show off a fun pair of kicks."
At the Office.
Black tee, H&M
White shirt, Zara
Black cardigan, Zara
Black pants, Bench
T-strap Spectators, Charles & Keith
Note to self: Do not agree to "shooting up" shots, makes me look wider.

To make dressing up in the morning more fun, I've found me another fashion challenge. I'm trying In Style's eleven fab suggestions for the season. I'm on Day 2 with Look #10 (yes, I'm doing it in random order).
In Style's Look # 10: Try a Full Skirt
"The must-have skirt silhouette of the season is short and full.
Whether you opt for a super short mini like Clemence Poesy's
or a just-above-the-knee version like Rashida Jones',
a fitted, tucked-in top keeps the look trim and in proportion."

My current fashion inspiration: In Style's "What to Wear Now". I'm trying their eleven fab suggestions, in random order, within the month (I can't commit to eleven straight days just yet, but I'll try). Hopefully, no shopping for new items will be involved in this personal challenge, hehe. =)
In Style's Look #3: Belt a Sweater
"Just because a sweater is warm doesn't mean it has to look bulky—
create curves in all the right places by cinching it with a belt.
Can't find one that fits?
Tuck in the end of a braided one like Claudia Schiffer
or tie a skinny leather belt over a cardi like Rosario Dawson."
My take on belting a sweater.
