So I was talking to my boyfriend the other night on the phone and slipped in the word "crunk" during the conversation. After laughing at me for about five minutes, MrKnowItAll proceeded to inform me that no one uses the word crunk anymore and it's dead.
Hold up - wait a minute!
Hold up - wait a minute!What!!! (in your best Lil John voice) Crunk is dead? When did this happen? Who authorized this?
Of course, I was devastated and near distraught over the news. How could this be? Then I started thinking about it and realized crunk is not dead; it has been on a bit of a hiatus. But crunk is coming back in full effect and the evidence of this is all over the 'net.. because.....
And since I can show you better than I can tell you...

So obviously, crunk cannot possibly be dead. Shout out to some of my favorite fashion bloggers who keep it crunk (with no professional stylist) that I highlighted this week.
My mission to you, my dear fancy-istas, should you choose to accept it, is to add a bit of crunk to your life.
Keep it fancy (and a bit crunk)!

YOUR signature style should be exactly what you decide it should be.
I totally believe in a signature look....BUT for most of the time. Clothes are too fabulous, shoes are too exciting, accessories are way too vast---in short, fashion is just way too freaking amazing to feel like you have to lock yourself into the box of a signature style EVERY DAY.
Life is supposed to be grand. And if getting dressed up like a gypsy one day, a goth queen the next, a sexy bombshell the next AND a wall street diva the day after makes you feel fancy, then go on and be the versatile fancy-ista that is inside of you!
I'll admit, no one will ever confuse me with someone who is very eclectic/ bohemian OR preppy OR biker girl. My signature style has a common thread. But there are some outfits I put on that cross multiple signatures (a denim vest OR polo shirt/ khaki pants, ribbon in hair OR motorcycle leather jacket and these to-die-for biker boots that I am eyeing for fall).
IF I wear a sexy bandage dress to a bar with short black motorcycle boots and black leather jacket this fall-- what style category is that?
I call it fancy...
NEW SHOES always helps to dull the sadness :o)
Have fun, make it fancy and be totally ok with it!!
