The best thing about denim is that it can be worn all year long. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. It is one of those materials that transcends through time. I don’t think I will every get tired of denim. The last time I wore this particular denim piece I wore it as a top. On this day I wanted to show some legs and rock these high lace up boots.
Here is what I wore:
Handbag: This bag was a limited edition but here is a similar ones Similar
Last week my son came home to visit for spring break. His last break we did not get to spend much time together, but this time around we made sure to pick a day to hang out. Being a mom of a young man picking out what you wear can be stressful. While I enjoy fashion I didn’t want to over do it, but I also wanted to be comfortable. Of course before leaving the house I had to get his stamp of approval. He didn’t like my shirt but gave me the OK. Our day out was enjoyable. We went see the movie Race ( it was amazing I suggest everyone go see it), after the movie we went to catch a bite to each. At this moment we caught up on what was going on in both of our lives.
Here is what I wore:
Black leather moto jacket ( One of my FAVORITE jackets):
Dark shades: Here
Peplum belt: Similar
Animal print pencil skirt: Here
Red booties: Similar
Over sized handbag: Similiar
And a few of my favorite accessories, Medium sized earring, layered necklaces and Bangles.
Sometimes a woman wants to just throw on a dress, put on some makeup, fix up her hair and feel that extra dose of sexy. This dress defiantly helped me feel extra sexy. I feared wearing this dress at first because of the deep V in front of the dress, but once I tried it on I was in love. This little black dress is not for the faint of hearts. you have to be bold and daring to rock this. While this dress is revealing it is comfortable to wear and flattering on many body types.
What I wore:
Clutch: ( Alternative) Here
Shoes:( alternative) Here
Stripes can often be a tricky pattern. Sometimes strips can make you appear bigger than you are, sometimes strips can show the imperfection you may want to hide or sometimes they can just be flat out unflattering. Rocking this two pice set was an obstacle for me. I wanted to wear this two piece on my BoyFriends birthday and had always planned it in my head. When I tried it on I did not like it at all, I decided to wear it anyway. To take away from how unflattering it made me I paired it with shoes that were louder that the stripes. I decided on yellow because it paired with the stripes nicely.
Unfortunately because of my necklace there was a harsh glare.
Here is what I wore.
Stripped skirt set: Here
Clutch: This clutch is sold out but here is another yellow clutch Here
A few weeks ago I attended an event called “Avielle Amor NYFW mixer”. It was a week day event so I had to wear something that I could wear to and after work. The weather sucked that day so I decided to wear a hat. The mixer was pretty good. They had drinks and delicious cup cakes and a room full of beautiful naturals.
Wearing Metallic can be a little “daring” and not something I often do but if paired with the right items it can be stylish. I dislike stockings but as I stated I had to dress for work and play so with a skirt this length and style stockings were a must. Pairing the skirt with plain tights was an option but I felt patterned tights would suit the look I was going for best. Don’t be afraid to take a chance with fashion.
Here is what I wore:
Tights: I’ve had these for over a year, they were purchased for forever21, but are no longer available.
I don’t know about you guys and gals but I am LOVING this weather. While I am a native New Yorker I HATE the cold. I despise the snow and while layering up is absolutely amazing, bundling up is annoying and uncomfortable. So while the weather continues to be beautiful this fall I am going to enjoy it.
I have come to the conclusion that I like this color… Taupe.
I never noticed how many pices of clothing I had in this color until I started to photograph myself in them. I think its quite a compliment to brown skin girls…
My look consisted of…
Kimono ( very old from Asos) a somewhat similar one from Asos http://www.asos.com/monki/monki-kimono-sleeve-dress/prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=5227574&clr=Black&SearchQuery=kimono+dress&pgesize=36&pge=3&totalstyles=205&gridsize=3&gridrow=8&gridcolumn=2

Clothing makes me happy. I know that sounds pretty shallow but they do. If I’m feeling down for any reason, sometimes all I have to do is put something pretty on, do my hair, throw on some lipstick and slip on an amazing pair of shoes. I know everyone has that ONE article of clothing that when they put it on they feel… pretty. Well this dress is that for me. I absolutely love this dress. This is the type of dress that needs very little help. You can wear it with booties, pumps, even over the knee boots. With this dress less is defiantly more. It speaks for itself. I paired it my always favorite bangle, dangling earrings ( although you can rock this with studs), ankle boots and one of my favorite clutches. Threw on some shades and felt… well… pretty.
Shoes: The shoes were purchased years ago from Stevemadden.com but they have them here: http://www.shoespie.com/product/10888696.html
Who does not like fall? I mean what is there to not like? You can easily take your summer clothes and layer them up to be suitable for the fall. Not only can you play around with your wardrobe without having to spend extra money, but the environment in the fall is simply beautiful. The canvas of the street that is painted by leaves sometimes makes you forget where you are. My appreciation for the fall is immense. I love how it plays on my senses… the sights, smells, sounds… are all so beautiful. Fall simply makes me happy.
Taking a stroll in one of my favorite parks I could not help but enjoy the beauty of fall.
