I am so excited to be writing an outfit post and it’s well overdue! Recently in December I was craving to find a blush pink duster! So I know you may be wondering why I had the immediate urge to find this item…

Dusters are perfect and so in right now regardless of the climate you live in. Most silhouettes are available is light-weight fabrications. A duster is super sleek and elevates your style.

This shade of pink is EVERYTHING and is my power color (when I wear it, it’s an immediate confidence booster). This shade of pink is like a pseudo-neutral and can work with a multitude of skin tones and wardrobe needs. If you’re like me and love white, black, and gray you can pop this color into your closet  and easily fall in love.

The one I’m wearing is from boohoo.com and is under $40! My exact style has sold out but there are soooo many options on boohoo.com here. I did experience a delay in receiving my items in the states since this retailer is based in the UK. Nevertheless, the items I purchased were beautiful in person for such a good price.

These OTK (over the knee) boots I snagged last year from Nordstrom and they are designer dupes! This style isn’t available but here is pair that is similar and $100.Other pieces I styled in my look are from my closet; they are a combinations of older pieces and new 🙂

Fall Favorites Tag 2016

Which season do you look forward to the most? For me it’s Fall. There’s not one single thing I dislike about Fall and that’s hard for a picky girl like me. The change in the air brings something alive within me each year, and I can’t help but smile about it. To be honest it’s probably the caffeine that kicks in after the iced pumpkin spiced latte, but oh heck who knows?!?! Speaking of those iced pumpkin spiced lattes, a cult favorite… Fall is full of year-after-year favorites for me that I had to share!

I had so much fun creating this video and sharing my seasonal favorites. I hope you enjoy this and get to know me a little bit more. Don’t forget to let me know some of your favorites too!

Choker Rage!

I’m completely obsessed with this choker trend! I know this trend has made a comeback a hot minute ago and I am a little late to the party, but my collection of chokers is something serious! In general, chokers are game-changers that instantly takes an outfit from basic to interestingly sexy and there are so many different types. What more can you ask for? My favorite way to wear them are with clean button up blouses, off the shoulder tops, easy shift dresses, and a classic v-neck.

On my YouTube channel I have a full haul of my personal favorites that you can shop now!!! Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you will be in the know FIRST about my weekly content!

Hope you enjoy and get inspired!

Get Your Wig On

I won’t lie, I’ve been fascinated with the seeing versatility that King Kylie herself has been able to achieve with a few good ass wigs and unconventional hair color. Why? Because I too want to have green hair somedays (seriously I do) and a good blowout. I want this luxury without the hefty price tag or seeing all of my hair on the floor.

A little background about my hair is that it is mostly unprocessed, like a little grown-out hair color from last year, without any chemical processing; aka a relaxer. So to get my hair colored will cause damage, and to get it straight takes about 4 hours. Ain’t nobody got time for that! A wig like the one Kylie and other popular Instagram gals wear off a lot of style options with out damaging a girl’s home-grown locks. Nevertheless these beautiful wigs can retail in the range of $300 or more. Yup… just google virgin hair wigs if you think I’m kidding. Le sigh…

I usually take to Youtube when researching any beauty hack, so my search continued there where I found a possible solution. My research led me to the alternative; a synthetic hair wig. Now while these looked beautiful on other girls on Youtube, I personally grew up terrified of due to the ghastly appearance of plastic looking hair 😦  One bad hair day + tight budget while away from home led me to the beauty store where I resorted to trying on a synthetic wig. I was scared and sure I would not have any luck, well I was wrong. Updated technology has made synthetic hair fibers look better than ever! What a pleasant surprise 🙂 Below in the video I’m showing and telling how I snatched my own Kylie-inspired hair style for a whole lot less! Click, watch and enjoy!

How to Wear a Rebecca Minkoff 5-Zip

Check out my video below to learn the 3 ways you can wear this bag and look great doing it and shop the bag here 🙂

Gorjana Crush

Gorjana is my go-to jewelry brand right now. I literally fall in love with each piece, and there’s almost something for everybody. Unless you don’t like gold. The line is mostly gold styles, so dare to be get out of your comfort zone silver lovers and look damn good in GOLD!!! The jewelry is fun for layering, so you can mix and match pieces to make it your own! What’s even better about the line is the quality. The jewelry is 18k gold plated and is impeccably made! Most people think that I’ve paid well over 3x the actual cost when they see me wear this jewelry; so when they find out how great it looks for the cost they nearly have a heartattack. I love to look luxe for a fraction of the cost. I’ve recently added the pieces in the picture to my jewelry wardrobe for this summer. What is your favorite jewelry for the summer?

Not familiar with the brand, just stop by the site and Gorjana will teach you how to #livelovelayer

Minimalist Feel

I always loved wearing accessories. A piece of jewelry can have so much meaning to it and change your look and is a great conversation starter, thank me later 😉  Recently I haven’t been investing in huge statement pieces and opting for more minimalist yet eloquent statement pieces.Two of my favorite jewelry brands, House of Harlow 1960 and Alex and Ani, make the eloquent minimalist happen for me and helps me share my story daily!

The latest two to my growing collection have provided me with a little inspiration to stay true to my self (bracelet 1 and 2). I also wore my long House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst pendant necklace (here) alone with the matching earrings (similar here).DSCN0040

For my last accessory to complete my look I went treasure hunting in my closet and pulled out a hat I literally haven’t worn in 3 years. I am obsessed with how chic big floppy hats are! I love them more when they have a little accent to give the hat a hint of attitude. I found this similar one from Nordstrom for you all here. How do you share your story with your accessories?DSCN0037
