Caped

As you know Mothers’s Day was this past Sunday. This year Mother’s Day was very different for myself and my mom. My son was away at college. As far back as I can remember it has always been Myself, My mom and My son. My mom and I would exchange gifts,my son would give us his gift ( if he remembered to get one *rolls eyes, lol*) and we would go out to dinner. This year It was my mom and I. I took my mom to dinner at one of our favorite places. We both really enjoyed out time together. As much as we both love my son, some mother daughter one on one time was much needed. I hope everyone had a splendid mothers day!

One thing I was sure about for this day was that i wanted to wear these JustFab beauties (sandals). I was not disappointed.

Here is what I wore

Spring Has Sprung

FINALLY, it seems spring has decided to show it’s face and I couldn’t be happier. We have had some peek days and then BAM the cold would resurface but it seems that Spring may be here to stay. So what is a girl to do when the weather breaks and it is beautiful out?

Dress Up!

On this day I decided to show some legs but didn’t want to overdo it since it is only spring. Spring in NYC is exactly that. I knew I would be out until the evening so I threw on some layers. Ive never worn these shoes and I was determined to let my feet get some air so I threw them on. I will say this. These shoes are cute and I will wear them again but they are not the best for walking around NYC. they are good for the car and short distances. I received tons of compliments on them so they are definitely a show stopper, as long as the show is close by.

Vintage Jacket and Paper Bag Pants

As I was looking through one of my coat closets I came upon a Jacket I purchased from a vintage thrift store but never wore ( this happens more times then I like). I took the jacket out and started thinking about what I could pair it with. I then went into my regular closet and found a pair of pants I haven’t worn un a while and figured I would pair it with the jacket.

On this day My hair was acting crazy, so i threw it in my definition of a side ponytail. My allergies to make a guest apperence but the show must go on. I paired the jacket and pants with a tee I’ve worn many times before and a pair of my new favorite pumps. Image13

Denim And Boots

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.

Mom and Fashion

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.

Stairway To Fashion

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.

Stripes and Yellow

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.

Metallic Kind of World

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.

That’s The Way The Wind Blows.

IMG_0703One of the (many) down sides about winter is the heavy gusting wind.  It makes it difficult to decide on what to wear. On this day I wanted to rock these beautiful boots and I knew for sure I wanted to wear on of my fur coats. The beauty about these coats are, they are extremely warm. I paired it with one of my vintage hats, a pair of half hand gloved and a faux leather skirt.IMG_0707What I wore: Fur coat (a similar one for a great price Here), vintage hat ( a similar Here)Faux leather skirt (currently out of stock from MysEleganceboutique.com), Shoes ( here), Half gloves (here).IMG_0706

A Fall to Remember

 

 

 

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…
