Black Women Owned Businesses to Support

Black Women Owned Businesses to Support

The events of the past month, the past year, forever, are outrageously disgusting. Black people’s human rights have been discriminated and taken away from for forever. As a white women living in America and having this platform, although small, I recognize that I would be doing wrong and stepping onto the wrong side of history if I didn’t speak up.

Dressing for The New Normal

Dressing for The New Normal

There’s no denying that the effects of COVID-19 are going to, and already are, hitting the fashion industry hard. Not only have consumer’s buying habits changed due to the lockdown, once we all start going outside again I truly believe things are going to be different, and some things forever. While we may need to, or be recommended, to wear a mask and gloves for some time, I think there will be less consumption of fast fashion and “trend” buying. There’s lots to talk and think about regarding people’s buying habits after quarantine, but today I’m going to be discussing the topic of dressing for the new normal once we all start to head back into our “normal” lives.

Sparkles for Daywear

Sparkles for Daywear

It’s no surprise that I’m a long time fanatic of wearing sparkles in the day time. Life’s a party, so why not dress like it? I’m no stranger to wearing my “night life” clothing in the day. A sequin blouse and jeans, paired with a strappy heel during the day? Now that’s chic.

Dressing for Spring When it’s Still Cold

Last Saturday I went to Soho to try and catch some new art galleries, shopping, and of course, cupcakes. Since I officially have Spring on my mind I opted for a bright outfit, even though it definitely didn’t feel like Spring with the wind!

80s Inspired Pieces

80s Inspired Pieces

Back to a time where neutrals weren’t a thing, and having big hair was IT. Cue Lady Gaga’s new single Stupid Love, or The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights. The new songs are giving me 80s feels, and quite frankly so is the fashion world. Sparkle day wear, monochrome suiting, and over the top ruffles are all that’s on my mind right now.

This Michael Kors coat that I’ve had for years has been a long favorite of mine. Every winter season I get so excited to break it out, and now that I have added a new hot pink one this year as well, I secretly don’t want coat weather to go away just yet.

Although I do wear pink and red all year-round, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to bring out all your pink and red and mix and match.

As January is coming to a close and February is on the horizon, I start to go through my winter wardrobe and put away my red and navy plaids, and dig into my spring/summer pieces and grab a few that are perfect for transitioning from February to March. Especially with blouses I find that quite a few of my spring/summer ones I can style in a way that makes them appropriate to wear even in mid-winter.

Exude Simplicity and Beauty with These Staple Items

Exude Simplicity and Beauty with These Staple Items

I am always the person when shopping to enter a store fully knowing I need a classic, staple item, and I always leave without that but with a crazy new colored faux fur, or an item I know I don’t NEED, but that I LOVE. I’ve been getting better about this, as I’m getting older I realize the importance of a staple item that when I put on although it may not be over the top, it makes anyone look classy and put together.

Autumn in Central Park

Autumn in Central Park

As we near closer to Thanksgiving the foliage is at its peak here in New York City. The weather is quickly getting cooler, and here in the city the holiday markets have already begun.

Before I fully jump into the holiday festivities, I couldn’t skip out on sharing my photos from this past October in Central Park. I’ve been dreaming for years to get to experience a New York Autumn, and I’m so happy to say I finally have.

Candy Stripes

Candy Stripes

Purple candy stripes were the mood for this September look. I find September dressing can be one of the hardest months to dress for, along with March. The seasons are starting to change, you’re slowly drifting your wardrobe from bright prints and florals to more fall-like tones and prints.

The Balloon Sleeve

The Balloon Sleeve

The balloon sleeve is a great way to play with 80s style, and with the modern twist on it that I’ve been seeing for this fall is perfect and can be worn casual, in the office, or going out. It’s a fun way to play with volume and spice up a more casual outfit when worn with jeans. A perfect way to add drama to any look.

September is creeping up on us, which means autumn is going to be here before we know it. It’s my favorite season, and I absolutely can’t wait to start breaking out my beautiful boots and autumn colors. When the leaves start to change I feel so much inspiration and joy, it’s like the start of a new year for me. I’m most especially excited for being in the city for this season. There will be many walks in Central Park, and photos galore. I’ve dreamed about being in New York City in autumn for years and years, and now I’ll finally be able to experience it. Crisp fall days are awaiting us.

How to Elevate a Black Jumpsuit

How to Elevate a Black Jumpsuit

A black jumpsuit is a very flattering piece to wear. It makes you look taller and when worn with heels is a really classic piece. To elevate my black halter jumpsuit I paired it with my teal flower belt(that I absolutely love, my best vintage find), and wore a seashell blue necklace with matching drop earrings. For bag I decided to add a pop of color with the neon yellow/green. I’m wearing bow black heeled sandals to continue with the black which makes my legs look longer. Especially for shorter people, never underestimate the power of a black jumpsuit to make you look taller.

I absolutely love all the color this dress has, it makes so fun to accessorize!

My “The Real Real” Wishlist, and Why I’m Second Hand Shopping

My “The Real Real” Wishlist, and Why I’m Second Hand Shopping

Over the past year I’ve seen tremendous growth overall in people being more aware of the Earth and using reusable products. States and countries are banning plastic bags and straws, which is a huge step. I came back from New York City to see my hometown had banned plastic bags, and now at every store they give out paper bags or have reusable bag options. Another thing I’ve seen more and more people doing is shopping second hand clothing and accessories. Now, I can’t deny that I used to be so iffy and “a little” grossed out about buying second hand clothing online from people I don’t know, or going into a thrift store and purchasing something.
