September Goals…

September is here, which naturally means summer is on it’s way out!  This also means I need to start preparing my wardrobe to dress like Kanye in GQ (this is so happening folks). Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Mainly because I feel like you have more versatility in outfits. Also because Starbucks starts rolling out the seasonal beverages, as well as the most important of all… I can bust out my beloved crewneck sweatshirt collection on the regular! All reasons to love the fall. So in order to be prepared for all this greatness that the fall season is going to bestow upon us. The only way to get the most out of it is to write some goals down. So for September mine are the following:

A Series of (Un) Fortunate Events…

20140508-065102.jpg

This week has been trying it and rewarding in so many ways and it’s not over. However we have to start on Monday. I went to the side hustle (my day job) came home, went to the gym, then started organizing my closet. In the middle of me doing that (which I didn’t even want to do in the first place, I love clothes….dislike folding them) the water heater decides it’s done and bursts. Leaks water everyyyyyyyyyyywhere! Which meant, I had to stop what I was doing to prevent swimming in my living room. Continue reading

Closet Essentials: The Fringe Bag

20140304-220131.jpg

My style is truly a mixture of several inspirations. Men’s & Women’s high fashion, street wear, movies, rock stars, family members, you name it. So it’s perfectly normal to catch me in sneakers, random Wal Mart sweats and a unique girly purse. I carry my fringed bag ALOT. So much so that it’s on it’s last days. So I am on the market for a new one. No matter what I have on ,my fringe bag gives the right amount of rock star and femininity. It moves when you walk and has a bit of sass. It works for all seasons too! Some may not agree… But to me that’s exactly what makes personal style…..PERSONAL. So in doing my research I found some wonderful affordable and (not so affordable) bags I would add to the wardrobe. Check out my picks below.

Pay Homage to Young Fox: “I’ll Be” by Foxy Brown Ft Jay Z

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays and got what they wanted for Christmas! So happy to be back on my routine and blogging. Last weekend me and @papidrinkswine were drinking and watching Mtv Jams (a favorite activity) We discovered this Strawberry Colada flavored vodka and gave Hennessy a break. Anyway, one of my favorite songs/videos of all time came on, and as I’m watching it I realized that Foxy Brown’s look is back in style! The cut out dress, the dark lipstick all relevant, so it made me want to write a blog about it. It’s also throwback Thursday (not a fan) so its fitting. Check out the video below and some looks I found that will work in pulling this off.
