What She Wore… Queen Delevingne

THE-FASHION-BITE-KATIE-ROOF-QUEEN-CARA-DELEVIGNE-STYLE

Who doesn’t LOVE Ms. Cara Delevingne… I mean, c’mon. She takes tomboy chic to a whole new level.

One minute she is walking the runway hand in hand with Karl Lagerfeld, and the next she’s court side at the Nets game sporting some Tims & a snapback, smoking an e-cig, and making out with Michelle Rodriguez ↚ ( woah, what? ya… that happened ). That may explain why she turned down an invite to Leo DeCaprio’s hotel room ↚ ( ya… that happened too ).

Anyhooooooo, I love her IDGAF attitude, but I love her style even more. Wanna snag queen Cara’s look… here’s what she wore…

Everybody Wants To Be A Cat…

…because a cat’s the only cat who knows where it’s at.

Want to know a guilty pleasure of mine?? Yes, Bachelor fantasy league is one of them (who do you guys think is going to win BTW)… but I was actually thinking more along the lines of feline fashion.

I am a self proclaimed dog person… all the way. But when it comes to clothes and accessories I’m all about the C.A.T. I like things that are quirky, tongue-in-cheek, and a little ironic Meow.

Here are some of my favorite feline finds…

Kika-who?

Welcome-To-TFB-Post-Graphic

Check ya later Kikadoo… The Fashion Bite has officially arrived!!

Don’t get me wrong… Kikadoo will always hold a special place in my heart, but let’s face it… it was time to move on to bigger and better! As a new blogger way back when, a cute ‘lil nickname that appealed to my friends and fam totally fit the bill, but fast forward to the present and it just wasn’t cutting it. To my dedicated readers… thanks for putting Kikadoo on the map and allowing me to grow! I know you’ll love The Fashion Bite a milly times more!

So… what exactly is The Fashion Bite? Well, it’s the perfect marriage of my two favorite things… fashion & food! <– healthy food that is! You will still find your fav fashion and beauty posts as seen on Kikadoo ( such as ‘Real vs. Steal’ and ‘What’s In My’ )… HOWEVER, I now aim to bring you tons of new delicious, healthy, G-free recipe makeovers as well as sharing my favorite gluten-friendly restaurants, snacks, and healthy tips and tricks with all of you.

What’s new? Pretty much everything! New design, new logo, new domain, and most importantly new name!!! If you visit Kikadoo you will be re-routed to The Fashion Bite, but you might as well bookmark the new url while you’re here… & while you’re at it make sure to follow me on Bloglovin, like me on Facebook, and check out my Insty, Twitter, and Pinterest.

So… what do YOU want to see here on The Fashion Bite? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you.

FASH Friday: Spend vs. Save

I’ll admit it… I’m a total fashion monger. I follow trends, even lust over them… but I just can’t bring myself to drop an entire paycheck on one item. I totally believe in quality over quantity, but not always when it comes to fashion.

I definitely think that there are times when it’s completely appropriate to splurge [good wine, a timeless handbag, jewelry you will pass down to your kids one day, organic produce lol…] but I am more likely to save.

That being said… I absolutely love sunglasses [especially giant, oversized, incognito style sunnies] and probably own over 50 pairs… it’s a problem. Some of them are designer and some of them are dirt cheap, but I find it doesn’t really matter. As long as I am shielded from the sun and looking cute while doing so I’m a happy girl.

I figure I have enough to worry about in life… don’t we all? So I don’t need to add losing, breaking, scratching, sitting on, stepping on, and ruining expensive sunnies to the list. I have been wearing the heck out of these bad boys as of late and I’ve gotta say… they are one of my fav pairs. The fact that they cost just shy of eight dollars and look basically identical to these other sexy shades doesn’t hurt.

So what do you think? When it comes to sunglasses do you prefer to spend or save?

What To Wear Wednesdays: PLL Steez

As promised in last week’s post… we have created a PLL inspired DIY fashion tutorial over at KT+E Unplugged. Who else was lusting over Aria’s studded hoodie from the winter premier?? I know I was. I wanted to see it hanging in my closet STAT so I took it upon myself to make it happen. I gathered the needed supplies and got to work. Here’s how it turned out…

pretty little liars studded hoodie

Here’s what you’ll need:

+ a hoodieany hoodie will do. I went with basic black while Fashionlushxx gravitated toward gray [we got ours at H&Mwhat’s new?]

+ studs: We went with a 1/2 inch conical stud which we ordered ours from Studs & Spikes.com

+ a flat-head screw driver: this will help you to pinch down the prongs on each stud

We chose to stud along the pockets and the rim of the hood… but you can do whatever tickles your fancy. It’s your project so have fun with it!

Head on over to KT+E Unplugged to watch the tutorial… and while you’re there DON”T forget to subscribe!!

TGIF: Garden Style.

Kikadoo Secret Garden Collage 1

Happy Friday!! I had a super productive week and am beyond ready for the weekend. While “running errands” aka shopping with my girl Erica [of Fashionlushxx fame] we came across this enchanting flower shop / secret garden. Though it was closed, it was begging to be explored. Naturally, we saw this as the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot.

Trend Alert Tuesday: Cut it out.

Holy Moly! Is it just me or am I seeing less fabric and more skin this season?? Holes, rips, tears, gashes, slashes, and cut-outs are popping up [or should I say popping out] everywhere. I don’t know about you… but I’m totally digging it.

So… what do you think? Love it… or leave it?

Anticipation is keepin’ me waitin’…

So Sunday is typically a day of rest.. HOWEVER… I am far too excited about my LuLu’s shipment that is set to arrive tomorrow!!! As many of you probably know, LuLu’s.com had a Flash Sale last Monday for Veterans Day… 3 hours only… 15% off! As soon as I heard this announcement I immediately rushed to the site and began to fill up my cart! In the eyes of a shopaholic [<— me], 15% off means the more you spend… the more you save! Needless to say I did some major damage. Before you judge me let me just say, it wasn’t all in vain. I did a little holiday shopping too! Check out some of the serious swag I scored…  

Love ya LuLu’s!
