Just this week I received a box of Little Louie's Cupcakes so I could finally try the mouthwatering sweet treats! Not only were they sent to me to try, but also because Jes (LLC's owner) had a style challenge for me -- to come up with outfits inspired by the cupcake flavors! Interesting, right? Honestly, I've never been one to take an obsession with sweets as most people appear to be. I can live without chocolate, I suppose. But of course, I couldn't pass up on these cupcakes because they looked too darn yummy! I got to try their Jack Daniel's cupcake, the Salted Caramel and their newest flavor, Caramel Oreo!

So for my first style challenge, this look was inspired by the JACK DANIEL'S cupcake. My mom's fave!
Baked with Jack Daniel's whiskey, elegantly frosted with Dark Chocolate Ganache and sprinkled with crushed almonds and an edible gold bead.

The chocolate cake is moist enough which makes the flavors really come through, complimented by the crushed almonds with the kick of Jack Daniel's. Don't worry because the JD does not overpower the overall flavor of the cupcake, so it still retains its freshly baked goodness :)

FYI, for this style challenge series, I actually took as inspiration not only the physical appearance of the cupcake but also the actual taste. This means that the cupcake may be colored brown, but I won't necessarily be in a brown piece. Hope that made sense :P

Just as the Jack Daniel's cupcake's presentation is rebellious with touch of class, it was only right that I took out my Herro Hachi shirt and cut out the sleeves to pair it with my new shorts from The Posh Wardrobe. Posh shorts, indeed!

I also styled my black high-cut Chuck Taylor's for this look that surprise element (which for the cupcake is the JD flavor itself). I don't think we come across Chuck Taylor's being styled so often in a lot of local fashion blogs. Most of the time if we're going for an edgy look, it's a Doc Martens or some studded boots, which is why that's the surprise element :)


What do you think? Pretty casual, but very appropriate for my Mondays since I run errands on that day! :) Yes, I wear shirts too! I just usually cut out the sleeves, especially now that it's summer because it's too hot and shirts just don't look right on me. Something about my body proportion, I suppose. But as I always say, work around what you have! Own it! :)
