Vintage Florals & NYE

This season is always full of celebration and festivities of all sorts. The malls are packed and every window displays their latest glitter minis and sequined tops because what says holidays better than glitter, right? Debatable. If you’re like me, and are beyond over the sparkles and glitter, go vintage. While everyone looks like a […]

Knit Picks

Every fall/winter season I treat myself to a few new pieces such as nice heels or boots, scarves, a new fur coat, a purse, and cozy knit sweaters. Especially sweaters. Because it’s usually all or nothing with me. In the winters, I’m either in men’s sweats from Walmart, or flamboyantly strutting around in lavish fur […]

The hunt for a solid cape was on, but I must admit, I wasn’t sure if I would actually use it enough to warrant spending an exorbitant amount of money, and for some reason, I was unable to find really nice, moderately priced cape coats at the mall. Online was the only option. You know […]

Faux Real

     There is something so undeniably glamorous about fur–faux fur, to be clear, before PETA gets on my ass. You can see the appeal. It’s luxurious, timeless, functional, and nothing tops the drama. If you are on the hunt this season for some dramatic new facet to your wardrobe, invest in faux fur. A fluffy […]

One of our favorite trends to reappear is the onset of the midi. Midi, full, circle, calf-length skirts (whichever moniker you choose) appears to be a blogger favorite. While some pair it with edgier tops and jackets, others use a simple t-shirt and statement necklace. But that’s the thing about midi skirts…even though they are […]

Black + White

Summer is all about bright colors, we get it, but nothing will ever ever top a classic black & white. Continuing on our summer style sesh, we begin with a minimal foundation. All. white. everything. For this particular look, a simple chiffon top tucked into a white Zara panel skort gives us the pristine palette we need to begin […]

Lupita Nyong’o and Other Things That Amaze Me

    Lupita Nyong’s sparked a wildfire in the film and fashion industry. With her unique persona, stylish taste, and outstanding talent, the media grapples with her sudden success. The media starts off with how she won an Academy Award, following with mentions of her Kenyan background, her exotic look, and other odd praises. There […]

Makeup for the Beauty Challenged

I have gone on record many times to say how basic my “makeup routine” actually is (or lack thereof, really). Seems these days everyone is a YouTube or Instagram makeup guru/celebrity, and I’m still sopping Vaseline on my face. Don’t get me wrong, I know my eye makeup and lipsticks, so I’m not completely illiterate, […]
