September 2015



To some, living in a major city can be highly overwhelming. Its extremely fast paced, and if you’re not running for a taxi, the subway, or to your next meeting…you’re probably a tourist. LOL. But all jokes aside, while I do understand how hectic it can be for some, I love every ounce of it. There’s never a dull moment or a shortage of places to go and I personally feel like I learn something new almost every day. To compliment the “on-the-go” theme I had planned for this look, I decided to keep the outfit simple and stick with a flat shoe. By now, we should all know that even my most simplest looks have a little edge and this ensemble was no different! I pulled a very dramatic high/low chiffon blouse from my closet and paired it with some destroyed denim cut-offs that I’ve had for ages! Then, to add a different texture I went with some snake print slip-on flats and a statement necklace to finish off the look. As I’ve said before, you don’t always need the boldest colors or patterns to stand out. In my opinion, it’s the tiny elements and nuances that make for an eye-catching and memorable look. While prancing around the city that never sleeps comfort and style are always at the top of my list. A wise person once told me, “If you’re bored in New York City, maybe you’re just boring.” Until next time guys! 🙂

In my opinion, the best way to execute a simple ensemble is to play with different textures and fabrics. I’m sure we all have heard of the “LBD” and love them, but who says they have to be boring? This particular dress has lasted me a few years and still gets tons of compliments and attention whenever I wear it. Yes, it’s simple and black but the lace trim definitely provides a soft elegance that is beautiful, especially when caught in a nice summer breeze. Whether in the office, shopping around town, or for a romantic date dresses like these are totally multi-purpose and fashionable. To coincide with the simplicity of the look, I decided to style my hair in a low messy bun and add a red lip for a pop of color. Lace up heeled sandals have been huge this season and a trend that I’m absolutely obsessed with, so throwing them on with this look was a no-brainer and a perfect finishing touch. I challenge every fashionista to embrace their LBDs but gravitate to some with a little more pizazz; make a statement!
