Holiday Style // Love Red



Classic red is just a style tradition. You can't go without wearing red during the holiday season. It's about as normal as drinking water. What I love is the variations of red. This coat was one I got last year from my church. It was around the time I really wasn't working and couldn't afford to get a warm coat.

What to Wear // Opaque Hosiery



Colder days adds on the worry of putting your favorite pencil skirt away for the season. Folding up next to summer dresses and cute rompers. You reminisce about the sunny days and they way you felt when your word that cute cocktail dress the night you and your girls met that guy from t.v,. Why must it end. Colder days require solutions that are as simple as pie. Pull out a pair of black tights and watch your look come back to life.

Embracing ME // Trench Coat



I realize how in this world you can get so caught up in wanting to be like someone else. How about when you begin to look at someone who inspire you and later it ends up you mimicking exactly what they do. I realize through Christ how important it is not to rely on man. Let's be honest we are fickle creatures, one minute we are hot next minute were cold. Half of the time we think we know what we want but we really don't.

What to Wear // Basic Layering


Who says fall wasn't easy to fall into. Like any other blogger would say I love the fall because it's layering season. But let's be real, it's the time where we're finding everything and anything to wear because we just want to stay warm. Especially living in New York City, it gets really cold and the weather jumps from warm to cold all through the ending months.

The cardigan, once a two-piece set combination added with a camisole or suit now has become a  stylish staple. You might ask what's the difference, it's always been apart of style. Well it's not necessarily the piece but how it has been enhanced. The look has moved from short to long. The length is now what has everyone currently looking for their perfect pair.

JOYS DAY


GUESS WHAT? It's my birthday!

 All I want to say is thank you Jesus I have lived twenty six beautiful years. However, what I'm truly happy about is that I can say I am two years old in Christ now. Wow, I remember just yesterday when I moved back to New York all I wanted was to make my life better, find God and grow my business. Who knew that God would fulfill my promise and put me right where I needed to be.

Big Skirts & Moto Coats




It is my favorite time of the year. I know it sounds like a line from a Christmas song but it's true. I just love the fact that you can layer and play with your style during the fall season. There is nothing more fun than reworking pieces from your spring/summer wardrobe into your fall/winter wardrobe. This I believe helps you experiment with your style and also, helps you to save money. Especially, if your on a budget like me! Also, learning to take your staple wow pieces and making them work for every season. There is nothing I love more than big skirts and cool coats.

Pleated Pencil Skirt


Cherishing the few sunny days we have before the cold weather begins to kick in. I remember when I wanted to move to Florida when I was little. I wanted to escape the cold, but then I heard they had earthquakes. Let's just say my mind changed after that.

Stripes & Culottes


NYFW this year was such a blessing. Way more than I could have dreamed. However, between the move of the shows from Lincoln Center to actually buildings it made it difficult to commute back and forth. I didn't know whether I was coming or going this week. It was a bit difficult to keep up with my looks as well due to my work schedule. However, I was able to capture this one which was my favorite look from the whole week. And guess what Jesus styled me!!!!

What to Wear // Summer 9 to 5



Summer calls for maxi skirts, crop tops, and bathing suits, but if your like me stead fast in your career or job you have to continue to wear blazers and pants. It can get very hot especially if your not a skirt wearer. For me a skirt wearer is a women who owns about more than fifty percent more skirts than dress pants. I am complete opposite. I own about ninety percent dress pants more than skirts. So, It is important to learn how to dress for each season. Today focus is summer suiting.

Places to Go // The Metropolitan Museum


 Summer in the city is almost always the best. Picnics at the park, kayaking trips, beach outings, etc. It also a great time to check out some amazing exhibits at the museum. For the past oh year I have been trying to make a trip, but it would always get pushed back or just didn't have the money. Recently one of dear friends who I love more than gum drops and candy canes, invite me to visit the Metropolitan Museum with her. So, I just had to share with you guys my favorite, exhibits culture. I also got to see the Fashion Exhibit: China thru the looking Glass. You can check out photos and details of that in the next post.

Print Maxi Dress




Days when you just want to wear nothing on hot days I recommend a maxi dress. I was getting ready for one of my dear friends surprise party and had a moment where I just didn't know what to wear. Mainly because it was so hot outside. I didn't want to wear jeans, I don't own shorts. I know shocking right but we will talk more about that later. So going through my closet I found this gem. I received from a fashion show I worked in 2013.

On the Runway // Resort 2016


It's amazing how the fashion calendar is so different from the consumer calendar. In fashion the calendar is a year ahead. So, while the average consumer is shopping during the year, the designers are creating for the following year. Hence, why all fashion weeks showcase designs a year ahead. It's so buyers, retailers, etc, can have time to look at the new looks and pick what they believe will sell.

Pinstripe Pant Suit


There is nothing I love more than a great matching suit, well except Jesus. He he. I love matching suits because you can create so, many different looks with both separates, which I will showcase in another post.  My favorite thing about pant suits is that they are elegant yet fun. This one in partially I love because the blazer has an amazing peplum detail in the back. Also it comes in at the waist just right adding more definition to you curves. It's partner is a low waist, wide leg pant. I just adore these pants because they are fun and flirty. They have just the right amount of room to move, yet still flatters your body.

Decor & Thangs // Crate & Barrel


Yesterday, while I waited for my client I decided randomly to make a trip into Crate & Barrel. I can honestly say it is my favorite place to go. It is a creative interior decorators dream. At least I believe so. I'm secretly an interior decorator. One of the many dreams I have is to buy homes and redecorate them. Also, I would be lying to you if I said I wasn't excited to get married just to decorate my house. One problem, you actually need a husband in order for that to work. Silly me, but until then I'll settle for sketching my place and online shopping. He he.

During my trip I found many beautiful things I just couldn't resist to take photos. Here are a few of my favorite things. As well as my look for the day. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Woman with Faith


Faith. Faith is what people have the hardest time with. One day we feel like we can conquer the world, the next day we feel like things can't get any worst. Should faith really be this up and down battle? Can you have a continuous  level of faith or are we forever trap by this up and down motion?

Color Me Happy


Spring is here, at least it's starting to feel like it.  I know a few of us have mixed feelings. Some are loving the fact that we will no longer have snow and gusty winds. However, some of us are dreading the fact that this means short skirts, loose dresses and attractive people mixed with not so secure people on the streets. I say that because honestly, we are all beautiful but we all have that one thing that makes us feel uncomfortable. That's why some people wear sweaters in the summer; some avoid hangouts with friends, or even those who stay under the radar with a pile of work.
