Trends To Try: Metallic Pleated Skirt




It's a new week but some old things are new again, like this pleated skirt for instance.
The pleated skirts are back to stay honey! Though I feel like they've always been around, personally I always have a few pleated skirts in my closet at all times just because they are the real MVP when it comes to easy breezy comfort. They rarely require shapewear and a bonus, they give off a certain good girl vibe without being boring, so consider a pleated skirt if you're meeting the in laws for the first time lol.

This particular metallic silver pleated skirt is a new favorite of mine for various reasons. One, the movement is absolutely divine, it just glides across your thighs like silk but the best part is that it does this without loosing the sharp pleats! I have a few pleated skirts that open up while you're moving and I do not like that look. But because this silver fabric is a bit heavier, it moves without loosing the pleats and that makes it a keeper in my book. Add in the knee high split in the front and it stole my heart. I am actually thinking about opening up the split a bit more to make it a thigh high as opposed to the current knee high split. Watch out, the next time you see this skirt, I may be flashing thighs for days!

Embroidered Topper Jacket


Am I old fashioned? Are turtlenecks out of style and dated? If so, I accept my sentence because I love turtleneck sweaters (but I hate the name though) I think high necks would be a better term:) But seriously, I wear turtleneck sweaters all the time during the colder weather and thinking about it, it's because of the warmth they offer since I never button up my coats. I almost always wear my coats unbuttoned regardless of how cold it is and I prefer to keep myself warm with turtlenecks or scarfs so they are not falling off my radar anytime soon.

This topper jacket is so classy and elegant, I can imagine it conquering board meetings or in my case, cruising down the streets of DC. Lucite heels completed the rugged sleekness of this look.

Just in time for the holidays...



Well well well! I cannot believe that it's been four months since my last post! Honestly, all I can say is that I was busy living life! Thank you to all of you guys who sent me emails and DMs just to check in on me to make sure I was alright. I am well, I am blessed and I am ready to get back to blogging, so let's get started shall we?

Faux fur doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon so I caved in and picked up this multicolor fur coat recently. It is definitely a statement piece and I absolutely love it because it is very versatile. I can style this coat with a LBD for a formal event, with jeans and a tee for date night and the list can go on. The only thing is, I do wish it was in a longer length but you already know I am a sucker for a midi coat. 

DIY Kimono Duster


Hey loves! Surprise!!! Two things, I got a hair cut (again) and I started making my own clothes. Now for the back story, as for my hair, I recently started working out with a personal trainer and I was constantly finding that my hair was a factor in my workout so I chopped it off and I must say I miss my natural coils but this is for the greater good which is my health. 

As for making my own clothes, I decided to brush the dust off my old sewing machine and try my hand at it again and I must say I am loving it so far because the options are limitless! Right now I am working with patterns but my goal is to be able to free hand and draft my own patterns in the future so that way, I can truly design my own clothing and one day soon, design for you guys too!

On one of my ventures into my local fabric store I came across this bolt of gorgeous royal blue and yellow silk and I lost all sense of practicality and could only think about how gorgeous it was. If I had an ounce of practicality left, I would have realized that sewing with these kind of fabrics is definitely not for the light of  heart or the newbie. It requires a great amount of skill actually hence my uneven seams and hems but I love how it came out regardless lol. I actually made a matching yellow velvet dress specifically for this kimono that I cannot wait to show you guys! So far, I am enjoying this new hobby and learning a lot but in no way am I claiming to be a pro.

I drafted this jacket by hand just because I was feeling very creative and it was pretty simple. I paired i with a basic denim and white bodysuit. I will be wearing this duster everywhere this summer believe me!
