Hoochie vs. Sexy

I was talking to Sulay (my wonder editor) a couple of weeks back and I told her that people have two wardrobes, they're regular clothes and the stuff they'd only wear in Vegas.

After watching some reality TV, I realized that it was a very narrow minded statement on my part: Some women dress like hoochies all the time.

Ladies, there is a difference between hoochie and sexy, even if it still has some tinges of hoochie in it. And it doesn't just have to do with how much you spend. You can spend little and look like tart who is desperate for attention or like a lady who likes what she sees in the mirror. I'm a true believer that little steps will lead to an eventual hoochie rehabilitation. So with my intentions and heart pure, I offer two sets of outfits, office and casual, and how little choices make big differences.

For The Office:
Hoochie: Leopard print strapless dress and short sleeve fitted jacket, both from Forever 21, $19.80 and $22.80. Retro chandelier earrings and wooden bracelets, both at Claire's, $7 and $7.50. Mossimo Verince peep toe patent "leather" pumps, at Target, $26.99.
Hoochie Outfit Total = $84.09

Sexy: Cheetah print chiffon blouse and black dart pencil skirt, both at Forever 21, $19.80 and $17.80. Large faux pearl stud earrings and wooden bracelets, $8.50 and $7.50. Mossimo Daryn square toe peep toe pumps, Target, $24.99.
