I couldn't resist the opportunity to yabber on about this look. It's #tbt Maria posted from her previous run with WWE and the look is classic Maria! Studded leather pants paired with a floral gemstone bra topped with a cropped fur jacket - it's 100% dramatic and glamorous and daring! She accessorized with a wide studded waist belt, a bold pedant and hardware-embellished chunky-heeled black leather boots. It's a reminder of Maria looking like a total rockstar, a look she excels at. On days when you feel like setting your onstage persona free, look no further than Maria for some inspiration :) On a much more somber, but equally praiseworthy note, Maria earned her college degree this year - congrats, girl! (Yes, in addition to working for the Co. formerly known as TNA and WWE and doing who knows what else - she's a busy lady!) I love seeing her dedication to her goal and the hard work she put in to pursuing it. It's as inspiring as her fashion is! She wore a blue bodycon dress for the occasion, finished with de rigueur nude pumps. She has a wonderful ability to change her style to be appropriate for the occasion, something I very much admire and applaud.
Maryse embraced the dark floral trend with this sheath dress, in a gorgeous, oversize rendition of the print. With the dark backdrop, the whirling florals feel less frivolous and much more sophisticated. Maryse plays that up with a leather jacket and taupe ankle boots (from Gucci). After the long reign of the pointy toe (which isn't over, by any means) this rounded shape has a fresh and interesting vibe to it. Next up is a re-use of a perforated pencil skirt from Mistress Rocks. This time, she pairs it with a diamond-printed top from Revolve Clothing, which sports a mock neck and sheer sleeves. The way the look plays on the two different geometric patterns is quite intriguing and unusual, while the black and white/ivory is as classic as it gets. Her Valentino Rockstud pumps round out the look with a nice contrasting delicacy and shine. Her visit to the Porsche Museum (oh my - I could def get carried away in there!) was all about statement outerwear. She paired a simple black top and pants with a Mossman Clothing overcoat: a classic silhouette with flap pockets and a statement color with distinctive military-esque button details. The rich burgundy is hard to ignore! A coat with this combination of iconic styling and unique hue is the kind of investment piece that will last decades and which everyone should have! I wish I could say the same about her Louis Vuitton boots. I love a good pair of derriere-kicking, lug-sole boots as much as the next girl, but even Maryse can't sell me on these. The white laces unfortunately give me clown vibes that I just can't get past. Oh well. Chalk that up to an extremely rare (like rarer-than-a-solar-eclipse-rare) questionable selection by Maryse.
She was right back to form for her visit to the Sistine Chapel . This look paired dark denim with an ACDC sleeveless tee and one of the coolest jackets I have seen lately! It's a moto style, but done in cloth instead of leather - and cloth with a soft sheen and a fantastic platinum color - I'm in love! Also, I want one! This is a completely amazing piece that is wearable year-round; pair it with pants, pencil skirts, denim, dresses, almost anything basically. I love how she added polish to this casually chic look with a high bun, and a touch of mystery with oversized sunnies. Next up is a nearly monochrome look that makes use of those boots again :). She paired a "Villian" tee (which I adore) with black leggings and a biker jacket. I wouldn't have minded if she had swapped the leggings for some skinny denim, but her low pony makes this classic, Maryse-casual look tons more fun!
