Ever heard of the Canadian Tux? Well, if you haven’t, it’s basically denim on denim. (Such a throwback right? Haha!)

Here’s my rendition of the Canadian Tux in my hometown, Brooklyn. I purchased both the skirt and jacket from FashionNova (links below).  This outfit can easily be taken from daytime to nighttime and doesn’t break the bank! I hope you love this outfit as much as I do!

Say hello to the Queen of Egypt!

This year I’d decided to take part in the #halloweekend festivities and attended a costume party. I had no clue what to expect but it was definitely a great experience seeing the variation of costumes and characters out there!

Originally, I was going to dress up as Little Red Riding Hood, but this Cleo costume stood out way more. Plus, I saw a lot less Cleopatra’s than Red Riding Hood’s which made me feel a lot better!

(Sorry for the brief content but it’s more about the visuals)

Lace Meets Denim

Lace ups can cause chaos, but this denim shirt gives major off-duty vibes, which makes for a perfect daytime outfit. Sassy yet caj. So, if you’re looking for a statement brunch outfit, look no further!

You guys know that I live for lace ups… Lace up boots and heels, lace up bodysuits, and now lace up skirts and dresses. They really add a sense of flare to the most casual pieces, and that’s exactly what I look for.

Now, lets get into these boots… If you’re anything like me, you understand that shoes say a lot about a person and their style. These beauties allows you to make an entrance! Public Desire always bring it (snaps fingers) with the trendiest shoes. They offer a wide selection of shoes, different fits/cuts and endless colors to choose from!

These. Heels. Are. Everything!

Every girl has a pair of shoes that makes her go insane... She plans her entire outfit around them, and wears them every chance she gets. Well, guys… here’s mine!

For the past couple of years different styles of lace up boots have been trending, and I have a fair share of them. However, these are different because they aren’t boots. They are actually lace around your legs from the bottom, which can be a little annoying. BUT, beauty is worth the pain!

These beauties are from LuxNoire, and retails for an affordable $54.99. However, I was very unhappy with their service. I received these shoes one month after ordering, and got no response from the seller both times that I contacted them. So, do not order from LuxNoire if you’re in a rush. It’s definitely worth the wait, though.

These sultry sandals spruces up any outfit and they definitely SLAY!

Bad & Bougie

In the city that never sleeps, there’s an unforgettable vibe that comes alive at night. It brings an unexplainable excitement and is full of endless possibilities. It’s when there are no titles, no labels, and no judgements. All personas and alter egos welcomed! The uptight doctor becomes the carefree woman with tattoos and piercings, the stuck-up business man  becomes a happy go lucky bar hopper, so on and so forth. These are all only possible in the concrete jungle that is New York City.

Daytime outfits tend to be more reserved, as we are all either students or business professionals. However, at night, rules cease to exist. Which is exactly what I did for this outfit. I paired this mesh bodysuit with a leather legging. The saying “Bad & Bougie” has become more popular than ever. So, the bodysuit and leggings were the “Bad” while the “Bougie” was the fur coat, heels and diamond choker I paired with it! This outfit is perfect for a clubbing, date night, or a night out with your favorite gals. You don’t always need a little black dress for a night on the town. You can always tone it down with a bralet or tank top underneath (which is what I normally do).

I hope you guys loved this outfit as much as I do!

No White After Labor Day?

img_0116img_0173img_0141img_0149img_0155

Contrary to popular belief, wearing white after Labor Day is NOT some kind of fashion faux pas. I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever makes me feel happy and confident, and white is one of my FAV colors. So just because there’s some crazy myth that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion don’t, doesn’t mean that I’ll stop wearing it!

As you know, I love everything nude. Although in a prior post I said that I’d be incorporating more colors, doesn’t mean that I’ll be giving up my go-to!

So, today I wore a white American Apparel bodysuit with a pair of white high rise Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. You might be wondering if I wasn’t freezing my butt off since it’s the middle of fall in NYC. However, we’ve been experiencing very odd weather with temperatures varying from January to June within a matter of days. So, today’s temperature was definitely on the milder side of the spectrum. But, to keep warm, I wore a chunky Forever 21 sweater. Chunky sweaters are must-haves for fall and winter months. You can spice them up anyway you’d like; with everything from leggings, jeans, skirts/shorts, or to even be worn as dresses!

I hope you guys loved this look as much as I do!

Khaki Vibes

So, guys, its senior year! It’s extremely bittersweet for me to accept the fact that I’m going to be graduating from college soon.

On one hand, I’m super excited to officially be an adult, to set my own rules 100%, and not having to worry about doing things around my class schedule.

But, on the other hand, this economy is super scary. I’ve known so many well-qualified college graduates that were unemployed for months, and that’s the last thing I want. However, I’m thinking about attending grad school, to set me aside from the crowd. But then again, just the thought of the work load scares me.

Long story short, I am going to be enjoying the heck out of my senior year. I’m definitely going to be a little reckless and enjoying the fact that I won’t have any real responsibilities!

So, for my first day back, I wore a super comfy jumpsuit/bodysuit/leotard/onesie (whatever you call it) with a plaid flannel. But, to dress it up, I wore my clear perspex boots. You can easily dress this jumpsuit and flannel look down with sneakers like I normally do when I want to dress more casually. Or, to keep the dressy look, you can wear any sort of heeled sandals!

I received lots of compliments on this look, so I hope you love it as much as I do!

OOTD: Clear Perspex

Hi, Dolls! I hope you guys are doing well! I’m sorry for the long break, but unfortunately my laptop crashed so I had no way of posting. But, I’m back and I’m better!

In one of my posts a few months back, I posted that these perspex heeled boots were trending now. They’ve actually become a lot popular than I expected! Since I loved my nude pair so much, I had to get another. With these clear boots they can be worn with almost every style and color outfit. So, I decided to show you guys two ways that I style them.

I paired both looks with my perspex boots and high rise shorts. For my first outfit, I wore an off-the-shoulder top (that everyone seems to have this summer) This outfit can be worn for dressy and semi-dressy occasions.

For my second outfit, I paired the boots and high rise shorts with a white bodysuit and blazer. The blazer added a bit more comfort for me because I prefer not to be too exposed. For example, if I’m wearing something short, my top will be covered (and vice versa). This outfit can be worn for dressier occasions.

And, yes. My hair is RED!

The Switch Up

Today’s photos were taken in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which is known for its great views of Manhattan, beautiful graffiti all over sidewalks and walls, and hidden but popular restaurants!

On a different note–you guys know, I’m more of a heels and dressy shoes type of gal. However, recently I’ve been feeling the need to switch it up more. So, I started incorporating more sneakers into my wardrobe. I know I’m a bit late, but I recently purchased the Adidas Superstar, and I love them! They’re really easy to dress up or down and they’re beyond comfy! So, I paired this look with a jersey dress, which was super easy. Dress, sneakers, and I’m ready to go!

Brunch x Perspex Heels

IMG_08191IMG_08161IMG_08361IMG_08051IMG_08401Screenshot_20160423-112148_1.jpg

So, today my friends and I decided to go to brunch at a popular rooftop lounge, 230 Fifth Avenue. We had an amazing time, despite the cloudy weather because the food was great and the view was breathtaking! Although there weren’t endless mimosas, the brunch was buffet style, which is always great! Also, 230 Fifth Ave is known for their expensive meals, but their brunch special is extremely reasonable. After brunch, we decided to go to Dallas BBQ’s for some Texas sized pina coladas! LOL. All in all, it was a great day of us catching up and having delicious food.
