Printed Doubt


Hey Hey! So have you ever purchase something and while you love it in person, on camera it just doesn't translate the same? Well, here we are with that scenario. I personally love this dress in person, but in pictures? Not so much...
That being said, it's honestly a great dress (in person) and was purchased from Proud Mary Fashion. If our temps ever drop below 75, I'll pair with a leather jacket and tights. Bonus: the empire waist allows for plenty of overeating during the upcoming holidays. 




Has this happened to you? Love it in person, but in selfies/pics the love isn't the same? Let me know! As always, thank you for reading!

Basics 101


Hey y'all! Hope your November (besides that fiasco that occurred on the 8th that we won't mention) is going well. While I'm not a fan of cold weather, I love sweaters...yes, I know how that sounds. My favorite sweaters are vintage, but there are exceptions to every rule. This sweater is one of them and will get tons of wear. Perfectly slouchy, a hint of sexiness,  and super comfortable. I went a bit "Instagram boutique"-ish with the over the knee boots, but I love how they completed the look. It doesn't get anymore basic than this, but in the best possible way.




While we're here, can we discuss these braids/beads? If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen where I was inspired. I love how they turned out and although the beads are a bit heavy, they are so pretty! After all, beauty is pain right? I found the beads on eBay, the Slauson Swapmeet, and a local beauty supply store. 








 Dress found here, similar boots here and here and here (LOVE these).

#BloggersForBlackLives


Black Lives Matter. 

These three simple words together invokes such disdain in the hearts of many, which completely baffles me. Why does me stating that my life and the lives of my black friends, family, and others bother you so much? Why do you instantly tell me that all lives matter, as if I'm not aware? When people who look like me are senselessly murdered by those who are paid to protect and serve, simply because of skin color, am I supposed to be quiet? Am I not allowed to be angry and inform you that MY life matters? We are literally viewing police murders caught on camera like they are the newest reality television show, while becoming desensitized to the issue.

#SBStepOutinLA




Hi Loves! I hope you're enjoying your Fall thus far. I teamed up with Simply Be for their #SBStepOut campaign. If you live in Los Angeles, you probably recognize these lights outside of LACMA, one of my favorite museums. This look is perfect for a day of meandering through one of their many exhibits. We all know I'm a sucker for shorts and who could resist navy suede?? What do you think? Would you #SBStepOut in this look?

8.21.16

I'm back! Did you miss me?? July was such a crazy month for me. My disc flared and I was in way too much pain to be productive. On top of that, my MacBook crashed. No worries, my MacBook and back are doing much, much better and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. I wanted to share some quick snaps of this look I wore to brunch. What you can't see is this dress is sheer and flows amazingly when walking. If you haven't shopped Zelie For She yet, you're missing out.





**Style tip: I wore a "nude for me" bra and deconstructed denim shorts under. For those asking, I am 5'4 and wearing 4.5 inch heels, so this dress is great for you tall beauties.
***I love switching up my look and the easiest way to do that is with wigs. I'm rocking Creta and loving how I can wear light colors with zero damage to my real hair.


I am quite relieved to be back and I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. My birthday is on the horizon and I can't wait to share the looks I have coming!

Q-U-E-E-N

Happy July! How is everyone's summer going? My summer is going pretty darn great and I am hoping the good times continue. I attended the Golden Confidence pool party this past weekend. Essie has truly created something special and I was so happy to be apart of it. It was so amazing to see so many gorgeous women enjoying themselves and carefree in their swimsuits. Check the #GoldenConfidence hashtag on Instagram to see all the action.

When the Los Angeles pool party date was released, I immediately knew what I would be wearing. You can never go wrong with Jibri…I felt like an absolute queen in this cover up from last years Poolside collection. This particular coverup is sold out, but check her latest collection here. Paired with this bikini, I was beyond ready for some poolside fabulousness.

BBQ Ready


Hey y'all! Summer is in full swing and with summer comes the bbq's and outdoor parties. I paired up with Dionna and Joi to give a bit of inspiration for your upcoming outings. We all know how much I love vintage, so this look is no exception. I've been having major luck in the past year (I always shop off season…always) with finding vintage rompers via eBay. This one is a slight pain to get into because it buttons up on the shoulder, but I couldn't resist. I paired it my favorite summer straw bag and some super comfy heels for an easy summer bbq look.

Fever in the City


My new motto when shopping is "If I don't love it, I won't be buying". When I say love, I mean you may give a slight gasp and do a small jig. This has tremendously helped my shopping habit and helps me be completely happy with my wardrobe. I am very much a believer in quality over quantity, so if I set out on a shopping trip and only purchase one item, that totally works for me. I would rather have 5 items I can't get enough of, than 15 that are just "ok". I found this dress during one of my daily Hautelook adventures. No, it's not plus and no, House of Harlow does not make plus sizes; however I refuse to limit myself to what the number on the tag states. This is a kimono and can fit a variety of sizes. Keep an open mind while shopping and step outside your box a bit. I can almost guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised.
