SWEATER WEATHER

First off, hello everyone, and happy holidays! how were/are yours? Should you ever find yourself with time on your hands and a longing to go out, then here’s my advice: do just that!

A FASHIONABLE FAREWELL — THE BEST STYLE MOMENTS OF THE FIRST FAMILY

The reign of the First African American Family of the United States is coming to an end, and believe me when I say that I’m more than heartbroken to have to see them go. The family resided in the White House for as long as they could (two Presidential terms; eight entire years) while providing the nation with the…

CRUSH ON VELVET – WAYS TO WEAR ONE OF FALL’S MOST POPULAR TRENDS

With it’s large-scale return on the runways during Fashion Month and a resurgence of appearances among celebrities and street style stars, velvet has returned this fall to become one of the biggest trends of the season. These days, it seems as though at least one velvet piece or detail has become intrinsic to any collection made by any fashion…

ALL ABOUT DETAIL — THE TRENDIEST BOOTS FOR THIS FALL

Let’s be real: getting through fall without your favorite pair of boots is about as hard as spending a week-long vacation in Cancun without your favorite swimsuit. Case in point is—and I know I’ve said it before—this: fall without a spectacular pair of boots isn’t truly fall.  Who What Wear has called what’s in and what’s out in…

13 MUST-HAVE FOREVER 21 ITEMS — FOR THE FASHIONISTA ON A BUDGET

As much as I’m sure everyone may wish they could be, here’s the undisputed truth: the majority of the world is not rich, and I can definitely vouch for myself on that one. Unlike most seem to see it, though, being fashionable doesn’t need to have anything to do with having all of the priciest styles from the…

FOUR 90’s TRENDS THAT MUST BE (AND HAVE BEEN) BROUGHT BACK

No, I am not a 90’s kid—I missed the ability to be labeled as that by being born one year too late. Still, though, I’ve gotten my fair share of exposure to those days through television, movies, and music; and let’s not forget the recreations of 90’s style by many modern designers, who also believe that 90’s fashion—the…

#RELATABLE — REASONS WE NEVER TEXTED BACK

These days, relationships rarely ever (and sometimes never) involve much face to face action. Instead, it’s all about the electronic forms of communication: text messaging, DMing, snapchat messaging—you name it.  Many of the young adults of this generation have developed the ability to detect feelings without even being in the same room as the person they’re speaking to,…

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY — FALL SYLE INSPO

(cover photo via thestylerebels.com) In my city, it rained for the first time this season—a message from the Gods above that Summer was truly over, and it was no longer safe for us to attempt to wear our favorite sundresses out with the excuse that the weather app said it would be sunny for an hour around noon. (us…

“ARE THOSE REAL?” — MY MASCARA TIPS

If there’s any makeup item I probably couldn’t live without next to the brow pencil, then it’s definitely mascara. Nice eyelashes are something I have an extremely keen eye (no pun intended) for, and I’m not sure why—I just know that somewhere, along my path of makeup-wearing, mascara and emphasizing my lashes as much as I could became…

CIAO, OCTOBER!

Hello everyone!  As we drew one month closer to the end of 2016, I decided to do what I always do on most given Saturdays—I went out to San Fransisco with some friends to go (window) shopping, hang out, and eat.  Today’s outfit was composed of my favorite ripped jeans, a lovely wine colored off-the-shoulder sweater,…
