Beautiful spring days are ahead of us, and to be chicly ready to fit in when that season becomes our present state-of-mind we should start with the right outerwear to show our seasonal spirit! I’m starting with biker leather jackets in fun pastel colors. It’s the perfect transition piece to wear from winter into spring, and on those rare chilly nights during the early summer.

Don’t let a good thing go to waste, especially when it comes to your coveted pieces of fashion you purchased during the most wonderful time of the year. For some of us, wearing festive fashion pieces anytime other than the holidays, is a risk you’re not comfortable taking. Continue reading “Style Tips: Feathered After The Holidays” »
There are certain things we shouldn’t have to say goodbye to once mother nature decides to change her mood season on us. It’s obvious that our love of the framed beauties have grown over time and showing them off for only four months out of the year just will not work. If some of us have found ways to wear strappy summer heels or platforms in the winter (we’ll share in the near future), then giving some shade while wearing a fall jacket shouldn’t be a bad thing.
All-year-round your eyes need protection, and sunglasses are the perfect accessories to keep you looking stylish.
Now which sunglasses style works for which face?
I look at wearing white after labor day like eating fruit cake long after Christmas. Gimme more if taste good and I’ll gladly wear white to stand out among others who will most likely wear the darker colors during the fall/winter.
Dietitian, and friend Paola Mora may have something to say about my love of fruit cake “all in moderation,” but she has no problems with wearing white long after the month of September, so much I got her to model the angelic color.
Imitation is the best form of flattery. The fashion advisers we all hail to, plus a small group of street-stylers who have perfected the strut, stop, and stare looks get the well-deserved attention from all during fashion week. They are also the lucky ones to get their skinny bodies into garments, shoes and accessories hot off the runways. Therefore you can’t blame us if the uniform effect has become part of our culture.
One pretty dress, three beautiful looks. This Gypsy Junkies Dylan Bustier Dress was originally meant for a holiday story I was putting together, but with my impatience I needed to share it NOW! Patience is a virtue, ….I’m typing that while nodding my head no and don’t you agree? With this burn-out velvet piece, I couldn’t just do one head-to-toe look. The more the merrier, and easier on the wallet is what we all like. Continue reading “Touch Some Velvet Real Good!” »
As I’ve said before, I don’t have pierced ears, and see no need to do it now. Most of my friends never noticed until I pointed it out, (love them) and my love of accessories and jewelry hasn’t been hindered because I lack two more holes on my body. I’ve just found other creative ways to rock the dangling beauties.
In a previous post I shared how to wear earrings as brooches (here), now I’m sharing my version of collar clips! Modeling the look, is my sister who ears also aren’t pierced. Continue reading “Style Tip: Earrings As Collar Clips GIVEAWAY!” »
It seems as though my entire summer was the month of September. July and August were quite compared to exciting chaos September served me from beginning to end. In 30 days I managed to traveled the NYC world and the seven train lines, in the name of fashion. Pss: I was listening to Eurythmics ”Sweet Dreams”
There were so many things that happened in one month, why would I bother writing about it when we all know pictures are better than words.
So I’m taking back to my head-of-the-classroom days.

Question: I have so many chambray shirts, but don’t know what to wear them with not that it’s getting colder. Do you have any suggestions?
Answer: Chambray or denim dresses and shirts deserves more play time during the fall season. They’re great transition pieces once paired with sweaters, blazers, trousers or leather for the chilly days ahead. Use chambray as a neutral the way you would use black, brown, grey or nude.
My love of fashion does have limits, one of them is altering my body.
-Losing weight to fit into a sample size. Not going to happen since I love food to much and these curves aren’t going anywhere!
-Getting tattoos to document a moment in my life. I have enough scars and bruises to remind me of those moments don’t need the ink.
-What about piercing my ears to don some earrings. I like my ears hole free, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wear the earrings! Take it to the clothes my fellow fashion brethren.
Triple Five Soul Vest (similar)// Blaque Label Pleated Neckline Maxi(similar) // Converse Sneakers // JJ Winters Croc Envelope Clutch // Vintage Gold Earrings as brooches. (similar, here, here, and here)
With bejeweled clothes, shoes, and any other part where X marks the spot, this Fall/Winter is the perfect season to wear your jewels on your chest. I look at earrings as brooches that come in pairs.

The night chills are here and it’s time people to Fall in Line. Time to start wearing layered looks, covering certain body parts up, getting our leather on! I reckoned now is the prefect time to feature this video, and photos created months ago with my creative team. I personally like to stay ahead of the fashion trends, test them out, making sure the outfits created are worthy of happy faces.
Time to pose, strut and smile.
