The Wedge


Christmas is long gone, but when I see these pictures, because of the snow, my first thought is Boyz II Men's "Let it Snow" *starts snapping on the 2 and 4, cue 90's dance moves.* This past Friday we had a pretty snowfall, the kind that looks like it's filled with diamonds because everything looks like it's covered in glitter as you drive by. For those of you who live up North, you know what I'm talkin' about!

Urban Outfitters blazer (old), F21 scarf, Target beanie, H&M jeans (old), Super sunnies, Puma wedge sneakers
I initially didn't like the wedge sneaker when it first popped off, and told myself I wouldn't indulge in the trend. My mind has obviously changed after I stumbled across these. I was really digging the 80's vibe they were giving me, so I said why not?! These pups will become regulars once summer hits!


I woke up this morning to a notification that my school was closed because of snow/sleet/ice. I was oh so very happy and slept for an extra three hours! I ain't mad at it! Maybe I will finally clean my room and fold some laundry since I have no other plans today lol. Oh! I mentioned a few posts ago that I'm now a Lucky Magazine contributor, here's my latest post on the site! Check it out, and vote me up pleeasse!

Inspiration: Black & White [No Color Necessary]


Fashion is going back to the basics. Spring '13 and Pre-Fall '13 (whatever the heck that means) are taking things back to black... and white. Last Spring was so extra with the neons and the color blocking (I loved every bit of it), but this year they (whoever's calling the shots... Wait who exactly is calling the shots?? Am I supposed to know the answer to that?) are stripping everything down, and I'm liking it. No, I'm LOVING it. It's classic, timeless, and it looks great on EVERYBODY. Yes universally sound fashion trends! Diane, Marc, Jill, Calvin, Stella, and Prada (to name a bunch) are all blessing us with their designs for the upcoming seasons, and it's even more fun to see how street style incorporates high fashion and makes it their own, which I find most inspiring! Are you participating in the black & white minimalist trend? Here's some of my favorite b&w looks!


You could easily throw a little pop of color into your look...

Double Denim 2.0


This is my first post of 2013, and I want to wish you all a Happy New Year 13 days late! The past month has been a pretty busy one! I've been traveling to and from NYC a lot (all of which is documented via instagram) for various events, and although it's been fun, I ran my body down to a flu bug that I caught this past weekend. mehh. The chills, body aches... But luckily I sweated it all out and thanks to rest, medicine, and nurse Dad, I'm feeling much better now *blows nose.* I know, what a fun weekend, right??



I am so excited for this new year! My circle of friends and I are really supporting each other in our goals this year, and I'm on my grind, since you all know I'm moving to NYC this summer AND pursuing my music career... There's literally no room for slacking. I'm focused mane!

F21 denim shirts, scarf, & wedges, thrifted levi's jeans, thrifted Banana Republic coat, personal jewelry.
I decided one day that I wanted to wear an all denim look, so I literally took all the denim pieces from my closet and threw them on, and BOOM- this look happened. I had more denim pieces on, but decided it was a little TOO MUCH denim for one 'fit, but I think this works pretty well. I feel like I should be headed to an art studio to work on my next masterpiece, or to fix someone's leaking faucet... LOL.

I've also switched up my hair style, do you like it? I think it's pretty cool, and it's super easy to maintain! I plan to record a new video for youtube talking about this style, and my hair updates (for all you naturalistas that follow me there) as soon as I get my voice back! Stay tuned! I hope you all are doing well, drop me a line!

Have a great week!
