Not Really a Three Piece




So, an impromptu invite for a Saturday night out had me pulling these velvet goodies out of my closet, unintentionally creating a three piece that I absolutely felt scrumptious in. An added bonus was how comfortable this outfit was, very very sexy without being too revealing. I picked up the crop top and pants from the same store but they were sold as separates. 

Velvet is a pretty hot trend right now but unfortunately, it is also very seasonal. You most definitely cannot wear this three piece velvet ensemble during the summer. Well you could, but you would produce sweat as fast as you could wipe them. So make sure you wear all of those velvet dresses, tops and pants that you've picked up over this holiday period before they have to be retired.

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.
