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?
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.
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.
Jacket: thrifted vintage
Tee: from Curlskinksfashion ( the website is currently down) similar
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):

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
Brunch is such the norm. Going to brunch on a Saturday or Sunday has become one of my favorite things to do. This day I had 10 minutes to get dressed. I had no idea what I was going to wear so within those 10 minutes I had to figure that out as well. My way of doing things specifically when I am in a rush is to work around my shoes. Once I picked out the shoes I was going to wear the rest came Easy. On a beautiful day in New York, I decided to throw on a thrifted sweater and a faux leather fringe skirt.
Details on my outfit:
Boots ( these boots are currently sold out but there are many other cut out boots you can get Here )
Sweater: the sweater is thrifted
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.
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
