Brotherly love: a guest post by Justin Farley

Brotherly love: a guest post by Justin Farley

Hey hey hey,

So today is one of my lovely brother’s birthday, and as a gift to him, I decided to let him write a guest post for all of you lovely people. Please enjoy and note that no matter what he says, he is not my fashion role model. Here it is, a post from Jusaroo:

Some of you out there may not know this, but Ciera’s fashion choices are not a product of her own sense. She has 3 older brothers and a father that have taken her from wearing corduroys and camouflage with rain boots to the fashion blogger that she is today. Even though I’m the youngest of the three brothers, I would like to think that I am writing this on behalf of all of us, as I’m sure she would agree that we have shaped her fashion in ways that are beyond measure. That all being said, lets get down to the outfit business.

I’m gonna do this one from the bottom up comparing both of our outfits and since everything is a competitions, I’ll be subjectively choosing a fashion winner for the day.

Shoes

Ciera – Cheetah Print Penny Loafers. I mean WOW! The odds of seeing a cheetah in you lifetime has to be about 1,000,000 to 1, but finding these puppies to buy? I think Cece hit the lottery. I believe she found these at www.worldwildlifefoundation.com (FALSE) and could be used in a variety of situations, whether it’s scaring off predators or cruising around downtown. Based on what has to be the rarity of the shoes, I’m giving this one a score of 9.7/10.

Justin – Rockport Black Boots. I’ve gotta admit, I never in a million years thought that I would be wearing boots on a daily basis, but here we are! These tanks are easy on the feet and tough as can be, while also looking pretty sleek. Not quite as rare as the cheetah loafers though, so I’ll give these a score of 8.9/10.

Pants
Ciera – Jeans (Kan Cans to be exact). Yep that’s about the extent I know about them, they are jeans. I will comment on the rolled bottom though: aren’t your ankles cold??? That being said, I’ll give this a score of 8.2/10.
 
Justin – Also Jeans. Like the vegetables along with a nice steak for dinner, these are to be worn not as the star of the show, but as the necessity for a good healthy base. Based on the full ankle coverage I will give these a score of 8.5.

Shirt
Ciera – Black Long-sleeved Shirt – Actually, this one I kinda like. Simple yet understated, which is usually for the best. Plus it allows the cheetah penny loafers to really flourish. Score 9.2/10 (Most of my outfit is from Buckle, and if you live in Reno, go check out Buckle store 322 in Meadowwood Mall, which Justin and I have both worked at. They are the best and will help you out with all of your Christmas shopping) 🙂
Justin – Travis Mathew Polo – I know the millions of adoring fans out there for the Farley men were expecting the trademark Nike 1/4-zip, but I’m out here showing that we do own other shirts, and we do occasionally wear them! That being said, I’m not sure I could have enough of the Travis Mathew shirts and jackets (cough, cough, Christmas presents). T-Math, as I like to call it, has a legit fit and look that works anytime of year from on the course to at the club. Score 9.8/10.

Hair and Makeup
Ciera – Lipstick (if you are ever in need of any makeup, go see Lou at MAC in Meadowwood, she is an angel and so helpful) and Top-knot. The old top-knot… I was just introduced to this style by Ciera in the last year or so, and even though there were some strange looks and startled faces the first few times she rocked this, she persevered! Now I’m not saying she’s the creator of the top-knot (though she could be for all I know about hair), but this hairdo has grown on me and works well for with the casual look of the rest of the outfit. Score 9.5/10.
Justin – N/A – Has anyone ever “touched up” the Mona Lisa? I think not. Score 10/10.
 
Total
 
Ciera – 36.6/40
 
Justin – 37.2/40
 
Great showing by Ciera, as she almost pulled out the victory on the strength of the Cheetah penny loafers, but she just couldn’t match the strength/style of the Travis Mathew shirt. Solid outfits all the way around, and keep checking out The Devil Wears Rompers for more posts from Ciera and the occasional guest post from her inspiration in all things fashion and fitness: me!

Black is the New Black???

Hi friends,

Welcome back to another wonderful Tuesday fashion post with meeeee. I am sure you have all been eagerly awaiting this installment since last Tuesday, and lucky for you, I am servin’ it up to ya! I would first like to give a shoutout to my mother, because she has been killin’ it with the blog pic taking lately.. I am just so proud of that little booger. Second, these pictures come to you courtesy of taking them very last minute by the river yesterday, so please enjoy my pale legs in the freezing weather.

On to the good stuff, this outfit is everything you need in your closet, and in summary it can be described as a little black with a little more black, aaaand a wee bit of lavender. If there ever comes a time when you stare into the dark abyss of your closet and have no idea of what to wear, I am here to tell you that the answer is BLACK. Sometimes it is fun to go grim reaper on everyone and rock that all black. You can even straighten that hair, smudge on too much eyeliner and channel your inner Ozzy. I’m not here to tell you how to wear it (okay maybe I am a little), I am just saying there are sooooo many options.

If you want to go short and cute to counteract that black dress with your overly pale legs, boy do I have the option for you. (Sidenote: I never realize how pale my legs really are until I look back at the pictures taken and realize I should apologize for blinding all of you). Here it is:

MIDL6170

So let’s get started! My dress is technically a tunic from Free People, but most of their stuff runs pretty long. However, wear this dress at your own discretion.. if you have the legs of a giraffe or plan to do a large amount of bending and snapping, I would suggest some shorts underneath, bending at the knees, or just simple old pants. I sized up to make it more dress-like, but you do you! I love love love this dress/tunic thing though. It is thick and warm with a little bit of a cowl neck. It can be dressed up or down and would look really cute paired with a pair of ankle boots as well. It even comes in a few other colors!

Next, let’s document the fact that I am smiling at no one.. Cool Ciera. This posing stuff is hard. But look no further than my cute OTK boots to help my legs kinda sorta know what to do. For those who don’t know, OTK means Over the Knee. These boots are the perfect combination of spiciness and comfort, because we are all fully aware that OTK heeled boots and me would only last about 5 minutes before taking a nosedive.. literally. These cutie pies are Sam Edelman and were most likely purchased from Nordstrom, but I can’t be too sure since I stole them from my mother’s closet. THEY ARE CURRENTLY ON SALE AT NORDSTROM!!!! GET THEM NOW!!!! The best part about these shoesies is the fact that they have a little tie in the back of the boot, so you can lace em up and not have to worry about pulling them up 467 times throughout the day. These boots are also perfect for more casual wear, like with jeans as I wore them the other day.

And lastly, my main chick, Rebecca Minkoff. If you are in need of a purse, get yourself a Rebecca Minkoff, you deserve it. If you already have a purse, toss that current one and get a Rebecca Minkoff. That’s how much I love her/them. The quality is so so good as well as being fashionable and super functional. I stumbled across this pretty princess of a lavender crossbody at Nordstrom Rack, and I could not have been happier. There are so many other colors and styles to choose from on her website, so I really suggest going to check it out. This purse is everything I didn’t know I needed in my life.. lavender and more suede. I’m in love.

IMG_E9757Thanks so so much for reading again. I hope you get out there, put on all the black you can find, and channel that goth/grunge phase you all secretly wanted to go through. Also, extra special blogpost coming next week from my FIRST EVER guest writer. So get excited. 🙂 See you next week!

Xo, Ciera
