ALL NAVY EVERYTHING… YEP, I’M MAKING IT A THING [NYFW FW17 ]

Photos by Delante Armani

It’s still day two and my spirits are still “all the way up!” After the first show of the day, I took to the city for a little exploring in my last look which grabbed a lot of attention. The Fashion Nova faux fur was a hit. I was in my own little world by the time I got back to my hotel room to regroup and switch it up for part two of my day.

LOOKIN’ FOXY IN FAUX. [NYFW FW17 – DAY 2]

For me, waking up in New York is the best feeling ever.  Maybe it’s because when I’m there, I know that I’m on “vacation” doing what I love and don’t have a care in the world but I honestly think it’s deeper than that.  Ever since I visited for the first time back in 2012, I’ve been stuck on it and it’s a liberating feeling I just can’t shake – and I don’t want to. Being here makes me happy on the inside and in my opinion, it reflected beautifully on the outside with this look…

NYC NIGHT 1 WAS POPPIN- SINCE DAY 1 DIDN’T HAPPEN [NYFW FW17]

I’m finally here!  NYFW is here again and after weeks of packing and planning, I am finally back in my second home.  Just looking at my itinerary for the week I already knew there was pretty much no time for sleep… or was there?

EASY, BREEZY, BEAUTIFUL MELANIN [NYFW DAY 2 PART 1]

You see that leg?  It wasn’t always visible.  This dress didn’t look like this at all actually. To be honest, originally it resembled a muumuu (pronounced moomoo – that oversized gown looking thing that some women wear around the house, usually a floral print; kind of like a gown) but I found a way to make it a little more flattering. Well actually a lot more…

I WEAR SHORT SHORTS! WELL, OCCASIONALLY…. [NYFW DAY 1 PART 2]

We’ve all seen the classic Nair commercial right? Smooth, sexy legs and super cute hot pants with the lyrics “We wear short shorts!” playing loud and clear.  Even though I love it and faithfully sing along every single time, I probably won’t be seen too often in ‘daisy dukes’ of any kind.  Don’t worry, it has nothing to do with confidence or not liking my legs or anything like that but being short and curvy, the whole “ride up with wear” trend just isn’t my favorite. For Fashion Week though, sacrifices must be made.

FIRST DAY, LAST CHOICE…. [NYFW DAY 1 PART 1]

I finally made it, back home to NYC!  Well, technically I have never lived here (and still don’t) but to me, it feels like where I belong.  Every time I visit whether it be for business or leisure, I feel free and happy.  No matter how many worries in the world I may actually have,  when I step off that plane, they no longer exist.  I truly believe it is where I belong so don’t be surprise when I post about moving…

FUR FIERCE-NESS FOR NEW YORK FASHION WEEK[END] : FAUX, FRUGAL, AND & FAB

Photos by Cam Powell.

This time last year, I actually promised myself that I could not go back to NYFW in February.  I still remember the 3 degree weather with 60 mile winds that made my eyes water uncontrollably.  Now, it’s February 2016 and where did I end up? Back in The Big Apple.  I don’t know who I thought I was fooling but nothing can keep me away from Fashion Week.  This time though, I was A LOT more prepared and the fierceness of my furs was ON FLEEK as you young people say.
