Dresses and Sneakers

I’ve waited awhile to wear this outfit. That perfect day, a day where it’s not too hot and not too cold… the perfect date. Now that I’ve loosely quoted Miss Congeniality let’s get back to the fashion aspect of this post.

Wearing dresses and sneakers is part of my styles aesthetic. It’s not that I don’t like to be girly and wear high heels, they just don’t like me.  Continue reading “Dresses and Sneakers”

Recycled Wardrobe: How to restyle without breaking the bank

Often I find myself lusting after an outfit I see on Instagram or in a storefront on a manikin. We all get that FOMO feeling when we realize that we don’t have that exact outfit in our possession – or do we? Our minds are quickly overtaken with the idea that we need to have that outfit, or those shoes or that bag or that jacket… and we are dragged back down to reality when we look at the price tag. Accepting defeat is not part of my personality – I may lay low for a minute, but when I do come back it is always with a plan.

So ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I have something similar?
  2. Do I know someone who has something similar?
  3. Is this item an investment piece? (SERIOUSLY!)

Style tips: your “shape”

Every girl has a different “body shape” that fall into a few “categories” that are either fruit related or direct descriptives. Apple, pear, curvy, straight, athletic, plus size, petite, fuller bust, flat, short, tall… the list goes on. Am I the only person who doesn’t particularly fall into these very specific categories? Sometimes it feels that way, which makes researching fits and trends all the more difficult. Your style should be a reflection of who you are as a person, so essentially it is what you like… whether it is trendy or not. Flattering lines and hems are key. Some women just say “fuck it, I like it – I’M WEARING IT!” whether it looks flattering or not. All the more power to you, but I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have done that and seen a photo of myself just to say “WTF WAS I THINKING?!” Hence the reason for my post. These tips are a “friendship” of style tips and personality. Continue reading “Style tips: your “shape””

Pop of Red(velvet)

Continuing with my full looks from the “cami series” here is the amazing red velvet cami look. Although I tend to wear mostly black, I couldn’t help myself when it came to purchasing this red velvet cami. This time around I wore it with jeans and a faux leather jacket.

Teddy Bear Coat

This coat was by far the best birthday present I had gotten this year. Why? Just one touch of it and you’ll know why. It is like being wrapped in a blanket, so cozy and snuggly… the perfect hoodie to nap in if I’m being honest here. This blog is more about fashion than napping so here is how I styled it…

Nothing to Wear

Sterotypical shirt for me right? Nothing to wear. I knew I had to pair this shirt with a really awesome look, the problem is I thought of 100’s of them! Settling on these velvet wide leg pants I picked up in La Jolla, I realized I went back to my typical color combo: black, white and hints of gold. These pants are extremely comfortable and comes in a “one size fits all” notion. Even when purchasing these I was slightly hesitant but they fit perfectly! Since the waist band is stretchy I was able to wear them as high waisted, well I really had no other choice since I am short.

Of course you wouldn’t see me in anything else but converse sneakers. They really are my go to daily sneakers. I work in NYC and everybody is walking everywhere, you have to be comfortable. These sneakers go with just about everything, as you’ve seen over the past year I tend to pair them with almost everything.

My accessories is what ties in the hints of gold, I tend to be very minimal or repetitive with my accessories. So finding the best black and gold accessories isn’t really that hard if you know where to look. I knew I wanted an every day watch that was all black. Scrolling through instagram I stumbled upon these gorgeous and AFFORDABLE watches that fashion bloggers were promoting. (This was way before I decided to start blogging myself) Once I was able to get that watch for myself, I wear it with just about everything. This dainty bracelet was from the Create & Cultivate Event I attended in the spring. I was a small reminder of what I learned that day, all of the positive advice I was given and to dismiss all negativity. Together they are my best paired accessories!

NYC Weekend Fashion

SURPRISE! I’ve re-done my website! Super excited to finally share this as it was a long time in the making. Let’s jump into what this blog post is about – FASHION! Last weekend I took my little cousin Zarah to New York City to see Time Square and Swan Lake. Being my mini me, I wanted to coordinate our outfits. I’ve been eyeing this jumpsuit from Lulu’s for some time now – although the back of the jumpsuit is really what makes it so gorgeous, it was absolutely fall weather that day… so my jacket was not coming off haha! I loved the wide leg pants of this which made me feel a lot less self conscious about my wider hip section. Of course I paired it with my go to converse sneakers because what else would I be wearing while walking all over Manhattan? Continue reading “NYC Weekend Fashion”
