All about the SHOES

"WHEN YOUR LOVE LIFE IS AT A STANDSTILL YOUR SHOE GAME BENEFITS." - Carrie Bradshaw

Who else is an emotional shopper? ME! I'm not saying I shop because I have no love life (which is true) but I shop at all emotional levels of my life. When I'm happy...I shop, when I'm sad...I shop, when I'm bored...I shop, you get the point, I LOVE TO SHOP.

I love to shop especially for shoes because they ALWAYS fit! And when you're lacking in outfit inspiration you can always put on a fabulous pair of shoes and look like a million bucks instantly, this is kind of what I did here, I put on an all black outfit, threw on a cropped blazer and, VOILA these fabulous pair of shoes just took a simple outfit to the next level!

Sixth Sense

I literally hunted this vest down for weeks before I randomly found it online.

I was surfing the web one night when something told me (my fashion sixth sense) to check the Ann Taylor website and when I did I saw this vest at 60% off, in my size, with only one left I quickly put it in my shopping bag and checked out.

Meant to be, I tell ya and I couldn't love it more. It's a heavy knit fabric that can easily be worn layered with a thick sweater underneath on those not so brutally cold days. 

I hope y'all enjoy your weekend, I am spending my day studying for my GMATS as I am taking them tomorrow! Wish me luck.

Thanks so much for reading

Do The Right Thing

So excited to bring you all a very special post today featuring Spike Lee's 25th Year Anniversary tee of Do the Right Thing.

Do the Right Thing is a 1989 American comedy-drama film produced, written, and directed by Spike Lee, who also played the part of Mookie in the film. Other members of the cast include Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee,Richard Edson, Giancarlo Esposito, Bill Nunn, John Turturro, and Samuel L. Jackson. It is also notably the feature film debut of both Martin Lawrence and Rosie Perez (fitting as I was told I resemble Rosie Perez in this post!). The movie tells the story of a neighborhood's simmering racial tension, which comes to a head and culminates in tragedy on the hottest day of summer.

I am not the hugest film buff but I respect and support, entrepreneurs especially those that are minority which is why I respect Spike Lee and his passion to empower young men and women of color to pursue their dreams, because at the end of the day that's exactly what I'm trying to do here on my blog!

Style Remix: 1 skirt 2 looks

I have always wanted to do a post wearing 1 item two different ways and when I first shot the right look (below) I didn't love the way the photos looked so I re-took the pictures and styled the skirt a different way but now looking back at the pictures I think the right look is simple and put together and a little less risky for those just dipping their toes in the fashion pool!

What do y'all think? Should I make styling 1 piece 2 different ways a new post?

Leather Midi Skirt

I know I'm giving y'all a holiday vibe here but I must let you in on a little fashion secret...plaid is totally in right now and not just for the holidays!

I paired this plaid top with an edgy leather midi skirt and some school-girl-esque platforms to give the outfit a bit of an edge. I can see this shirt work well for the holidays too, worn with a sequin mini, pair of tights and booties and you're ready for Christmas dinner. 

I love pieces that I instantly know I will get a lot of wear out of, plaid usually makes the cut along with anything striped.
