This is my last week of spring classes at FIT, blow the trumpets! I’m not excited just because the semester is coming to an end, but it’s also the amount of time I’ll have to share my stories, projects, tons of fashion advice! But, right now things are looking brighter, shorter and chicer as we enjoy our spring days. Continue reading “Style Tips: A Short Shift of Color.” »
Not too sweet, nor too glamorous. Rough around the edges with boots and a Mohawk to a gala, now that is my kind of party!
Tonight the Metropolitan Museum of Art will host it’s annual Costume Institute Benefit, better know as the Met Gala, with this year’s theme being Punk: Chaos to Couture. Continue reading “It’s a Met Gala Kind of Day.” »
Jeans we wear religiously, but there are times when we should put some things to rest and summer time will be the perfect season to let our skirted garments shine. It the woven fabric that keeps our legs warm in the winter and hot as hell in the summer.

This accessory is one for those who would rather adorned their heads while everyone is puts their jewels on the neck. I’ve been suggesting jeweled headbands as an alternative to necklaces for those who may be attending black-tie weddings or prom.
I’ve share some stylish looks for prom (here and here) that can either have some young ladies raising their eyebrows in a questionable way or raising it plotting how they’ll one up on their fashion rivals at the prom with the sequenced romper and sheer skirt!

My love of hats were shared by countless men this past winter who wore an array of styles on the streets all around the world.
Therefore before saying au revoir to the season that calls for us to protect our heads in own stylish ways, I wanted to acknowledge some of the hat wearers that made milliners and mad hatters, like myself, happy spectators.
We have beanie, bobbie, trilby and floppy. Say them out loud and they sound like the names belonging to members of a music boy band. We have the baseball cap guy playing base minus the ball, and the newsboy making sure you get the hear all all all about it.
Ruffle your way to the dance floor. If there was a ever an excuse to wear ruffles, prom night would be it. Wearing dresses you can’t move in and aren’t a bit memorable defeats the purpose of going the extra chic mile for your prom outfit. In this case a small amount of ruffles can go a long way.

When you’re a slave to fashion, if there is a will you’ll find a way. Just so happens I’ve found several in order to keep my nickname Ms. Cheeky and avoid being called Ms. Sweaty Checks. I’m a sweater, through the pores that is. It’s a sweating problem that I’ve suffered from most of my life, which makes me an expert on this topic. Through trial and damp error, I’ve figured out which garments to wear during certain seasons of the year, from the fabrics that are sweat friendly to undergarments which prevents those embarrassing moments from happening.

Some women have to wear long sleeve blouses during the hotter months of the year for several reasons. It could be their jobs, religious beliefs, skin issues or just a generational thing. Whatever it may be, you don’t have to feel uncomfortable or not look chic with the abundance of styles and fabrics to chose from. Continue reading “What To Wear? Long sleeves in the summer.” »
I see guys in blue and suits of white,
Colorful shirts and bright kicks that excite
Then I think to myself, what a good-looking world.
My obsession with fashion, as I know it, started with glossy pages, and if I had my way I would be sleeping on the magazine collection I once owned. No joke. Before there were e-magazines, online editorial destination or digital versions of our monthly fashion obsessions I had subscriptions to Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, W magazine, Vogue, UK Vogue, UK Elle for almost ten years. A little over 800 hundred magazines, could of made a good base for bed, but having my magazines be 800 hundred reasons for some sleepless nights I just couldn’t do.

Not too flat, not too high, just enough heel height to keep us feeling like ladies that can run fast enough to catch the train, a clothing boutique before closing hours or lead a running gang of kids trying to catch-up to the local ice-cream truck before it leaves the block! Don’t be ashamed, the summer heat will make you do some things to cool the body off, even if that means outrunning some children for ice-cream sandwiches and snow cones.
So my fellow heeled-clad subjects, don’t worry about how tall or short you’ll look, lets slip into low heels that are three inches or lower during the spring and summer months. After all, with the new season we should be trying new styles in clothes, new colors in makeup and new heights in heels.
