Vintage Dior…

If you’ve been following my blog and/or social media you will have noticed that I have a habit of combining a vintage statement piece with trendy elements. I love being comfortable while looking stylish. I went through my closet and found this vintage key lime green Dior blazer my mom gifted me (well I basically loaned it and never returned it ;-)) so I created an outfit around it.

  1. Bodysuit with High Neck from Missguided:

I love bodysuits because they don’t leave any lines as a tucked in shirt or blouse would. Just make sure the bodysuit has a snap bottom closure otherwise going to the bathroom will be a pain in the a$$.

2. High waisted jeans from Fashion Nova:

The model I wore is the dark wash Jodeci, I love the fact that they are really long this was my first time purchasing Fashion Nova Jeans and as a 5’11 tall woman, I was pleasantly surprised. Only negative is that these jeans are really made for Vixens with hips and tiny waist. I had to get used to the tightness around my waist lol.

3. Nude-colored booties from Missguided:

They round up the outfit, are super stylish, edgy and very comfortable!!!

The Gift Guide for Women’s Hottest Shoes

It is officially the most wonderful time of the year… And arguably the most expensive!!! Christmas time comes with warm, cozy scents, family, joy and gift guides! It can be tough to figure out what to get the fashionista in your life, so we’ve put together a small gift guide with some of the most popular shoes of the season. Seeing that the gift of giving can sometimes become financially stressful I tried out Kim K’s new shopping app, Screenshop, to find some budget-friendly versions to choose from as well.

  1. The infamous $10,000 Saint Laurent Niki Over-The-Knee Crystal Boots as seen on Rihanna, Cardi B, and Kendall Jenner or the Forever 21 Faux Crystal Knee High Boots for $88.00

 

 

  1. For the sporty girl in your life, you could hunt down these Balenciaga Triple S Trainers that are sold out online but run for $850.00. You could also go for the Fenty Trainer Mid Geo Sneakers that I think are just as fabulous and only go for $170.00. Get some sneaker inspiration from Draya, Kehlani, Kim K and of course, RiRi.
  1. Lala Anthony and Monica Brown were everyone’s #WCW when they were spotted in the Fendi Red Leather Cuissard Boots retailing at $1,350.  The always budget-friendly icon, Cardi B got the same look with the Steve Madden’s Dominique boots for just $99.98.

 

  1. Last, but not least, the every-day, fur loafers! You can go with Gucci and dish out $995.00 or you can go with the always reliable Target and only reach for $24.99! See these on the likes of both besties, Kendall and Gigi.

WAGS Miami Star Darnell Nicole is coming to Dallas representing GOOD AMERICAN

We all know the hit show WAGS Miami and we sure know Khloe Kardashian‘s and  Emma Grede’s Denim Brand GOOD AMERICAN which reached $1 million in sales on its first day.

Well, Darnell Nicole from WAGS Miami who referred to herself as “A big bitch” was selected as a brand ambassador for the trendy denim brand which expanded its product offering to sweats, bodysuits, jackets, and sweaters. Darnell is definitely one of my favorite WAGS not only because she is tall like myself but also because she lives in her truth, is authentic, remains natural (no plastic surgery) despite all the pressure and embraces her curves. GOOD AMERICAN’s mission statement is “to celebrate curves with clothing designed to flatter and flaunt”. Who better to pick than Darnell? You guys should definitely check out her profile on GOOD AMERICAN. I had no idea she was a dancer. While you’re at it check out her Podcast Dear Darnell.

Now to the event… I follow Darnell on SnapChat and saw that she was coming to Dallas. The pop-up shop will take place tomorrow Friday 11-17-2017 at the Nordstrom in the Galleria Mall in Dallas (13350 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75240) from 1:30pm until 2:30pm. Shoppers will enjoy over 300 pieces on the floor and receive styling tips from Co-Founder Emma Grede (@EmmaGrede), Darnell Nicole (@DarnellNicole) and other ladies from the #GoodSquad such as Delilah Belle (@DelilahBelle) and Kim Johansson (@KimJohannson).

NYFW Schedule Announced for SS18

It’s that time of the year again. NYFW will be back at its finest from September 7th – 14th, 2017. Most designers will showcase next season’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collections but with the trend of showing in season creations, I am sure that some creatives will also present fall and winter items this September. With much confusion and complaints surrounding NYFW I would like to bring in some clarity with this short post.

Let’s dive right in! So there are 3 main umbrellas: NYFW the Shows produced by IMG, the same company that produced Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Then there is Style Fashion Week who is also the major player during LA Fashion Week. Last but not least I have to mention Fashion Gallery New York Fashion Week which produces more intimate fashion shows ideal for designers’ debut in the fashion capital. Some designers such as DVF produce their runway presentation independently from all 3 umbrellas. Many complained that NYFW was too spread out throughout New York City but it seems that show producers took note of this and adjusted accordingly. Most of NYFW the Shows will now take place at Skylight Clarkson Sq on 558 Washington Street. It is not impossible to attend shows of NYFW the Shows, Style Fashion Week and Fashion Gallery New York Fashion Week you just have to plan very thoroughly and prioritize.

  3. Apply for press credentials
  4. Volunteer in order to start building relationships with producers, backstage crew, and designers

The more established designers primarily show during NYFW the Shows, emerging and independent designers present during the other two fashion umbrellas. All productions are top notch and you will be pleasantly surprised about the quality of emerging designers, various Project Runway Allstars such as Korto Momolu and Dallas based celebrity designer Esé Azénbor have showcased during FGNYFW. If you are looking for a comprehensive schedule of all 3 production companies check out Fashion Week Online.
