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!

Grey Series

Cooler weather = cooler colors! Many of you know that I’m a black and nude enthusiast. However, I’ve been adding more colors to my wardrobe; hence the khaki via my last post. I’ve found myself more appreciative of grey tones, especially for the fall season. It’s super easy to match and style items with!

For my first look, I wanted to display a cozy yet stylish outfit for the sassy fashionista. This Missguided sweater dress is extremely warm and comfortable – everything you need in the brisk fall/winter weather. I styled this dress with my clear Perspex boots from Blink Boutique.

I remained cozy – in my second outfit – with an oversized Missguided jersey dress. I paired the dress with my Public Desire thigh high boots, which are my fav because I have skinny leg syndrome! For those of you who don’t know, it’s when boots are WAY TOO BIG for your legs because you have such skinny calves and thighs. However, Public Desire might be the holy grail for us skinny/slim gals! These boots are the best fitting boots I’ve ever had, simply because they don’t have that awkward space in the back!

To add a pop of color to both outfits, I added a yellow satchel! This satchel was actually a gift that I hadn’t worn in over a year, but with efforts to add more variety of color, I pulled it out!

I hope you guys love these looks as much as I do!

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!

The Streets of SoHo

Today, one of my best friend’s, Genesis and I took to the streets of SoHo, New York. For those of you that don’t know, SoHo is known for its great shopping! You can find fast fashion stores like Zara and H&M to luxury stores like Louis Vuitton and Burberry. SoHo is also known for the cobble-stoned streets! They’re absolutely beautiful, and probably my favorite thing about SoHo. Although Gen and I didn’t really coordinate our outfits, we loved our photos, so I decided to share!
