WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary

24 Oct

By the end of last week, I decided I need to add more color in my wardrobe.  I can’t say a completely succeeded in that, but hey it was an attempt.  Right now black is just on my mind, although I am in search of a nice brown leather jacket…but that’s not exactly color in my wardrobe is it? lol

This was another week of playing catch up and no sleep, I figure if I go 2 more weeks hard, I should catch up on work things…so bare with me as I look exhausted in these and upcoming pics.  Really this week was about details,  just to add a little something to an outfit, and anything that is quick an easy.

Monday I was ready to conquer the world, so Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: style diary

18 Oct


In Week 2 for my Fall Style Diary, comfort was key!  I needed things that were quick and easy, plus I was just kind of lazy.  Many people confuse comfortable clothing with sloppy clothing, and that doesn’t have to be the case.  A dress is heck a lot easier for me to put on than a pair jeans, and I instantly look i put in some effort when i really didn’t!  Along with comfort, this week was about a statement piece, which was my new studded leather jacket.  I love it!  It dresses anything up.  The other key piece are my Jeffery Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Boots.  I’ve been eyeing strap boots for minute, and these did exactly what i wanted; they’re a great pair of moto boots to go with my moto jacket.
My favorites fits this week came in the latter portion of it, which were Thursday, Friday and Continue reading

Style Diary is back! I missed posting the past weeks, so here you go!  I’ve been in work mode, and I haven’t been going out, So right now my outings consist of going to work, shooting for work, going to school, shooting homework. Fun times.

This week, my favorite outfit was Tuesday. I had to find something that I could wear to work, but would transition for the opening of Glimpse, the BFA show that I was in (mentioned here), and drinks afterwards.

I paired my Emporio Armani vintage boyfriend blazer, with a Banana Republic long sleeve cotton tee, a cute Wow Couture skirt, that looks like it’s made of cassette tape ribbon, and my stacked booties. Love it!

Oh Halloween week…I don’t celebrate Halloween, can you tell?   Except for Monday, black was the dominant color to start off November.  I dress by mood, so I wonder what that means.

Tuesday I call my rock secretary look, although there was little desk work that day, instead i had to shoot VladTV’s interview with Tyrese. On Wednesday night I was a little bored, so I finally caved and bought a pair of stacked, wedged boots.  I’ve been toying with idea of getting the stacked wedge or Chelsea boots, actually, I desperately want Chelsea boots, but I haven’t found the right pair that I can afford, so stacked it was.

Even though I love my faux leather panel leggings from Friday, Tuesday was my favorite outfit. I rarely wear black on black, on black…..but here it works, something with the mixture of the angora cardigan against the sheer button down, works for me.

Style Tip of the Week: If you want to wear high heals wear them, and wear them with pride and confidence! On Tuesday Tyrese said some ish to me about “..its because you’re too damn tall.”  Most secure men think tall is sexy. They are just heels, I’m not actually over 6’0 without them, and really does all that matter when you’re laying down? lol. Also a good man, would never put you down or make you feel bad about something you have no control over.  So if you’re short or tall, rock your height and heels with pride, the day after Tyrese’s comment, I bought those 5 1/2 inch high stacked boots, and wore them 2 days straight, they’re the most comfortable shoes i now own!

I’m just going to knock all these backed-up Style Diaries out on this nice Saturday!

The last full week of October was a pretty good but a busy week.  On Tuesday I got a chance to see my artist and homie, DJ Dummy, kill it at Best Buy theater along side the amazing J.Cole, here in NYC.  On Thursday I went downtown to shoot the beautiful and quirky Amel Larrieux perform at City Winery; great show!  Other than that it was midterms week, and I was working like a maniac, so I kind of forgot to shoot a few outfits.  But hey, Tuesday‘s (this week’s fav outfit) blouse from my favorite vintage store Loveday 31, in Astoria,makes up for that.

Wearing such an adorned top, which i might add is so loose and comfortable, can dress anything up with very little effort.

Also the key for me this week, and most weeks, is wear a good lipstick color, when you’re half dead like I was Wednesday and Thursday, (i was actually dead on Friday) a little color goes a long away, it makes you appear more awake and put together than you actually are.


Happy Dressing!
