The gold blazer

I felt like a Parisian in this outfit. This jumpsuit is one of my ultimate favorite wardrobe pieces. It’s just so classic, and the details are amazing. I normally wear heels with it, but this time, I decided to go with an Afro-French-Ellen-Degeneres look. At least that’s how the blazer and the shoes made me […]


Finding Harlem Street Style: Kristia

It’s been spring for a week now, but it’s still winter. Seriously, the wind almost knocked me down the other day, and you could only imagine how I’m feeling. If the weather was a human being and cared about my emotions, I would give her the biggest side eye right now. Anyway, I met up […]

Meet me on the ferry

I think if you had to plan a rendez-vous with a complete stranger, the ferry would be the perfect place. “Meet me on the 1:30 ferry to Staten Island. I’ll be on the second deck facing east.” That would be an appropriate message to send. Or it would be cool to send that to a […]

My African Hat

One of my current favorite accessories is my African hat purchased at the African market in Harlem. What I love about shopping at open markets is not mostly what I find, but how I find them. I love my interaction with the merchants. They’re all sweet people full of life. They’re creative, funny, and they […]


Finding Harlem Street Style: Arsene

Mother nature decided to curse us all with her long, icy fingers. I can almost picture her cackling loudly at our misery. I’m not sure what we did to deserve this, but she’s not remotely interested in our happiness right now. Temperatures for this past week have stayed in the teens and early twenties (Fahrenheit), […]


Weekend casual with a t-shirt

  T-shirts with a good message always get me. I love the t-shirt look, but I don’t wear it very often. The reason is that I own so many dresses and dressy blouses. And believe it or not, dresses are easier for me than jeans and t-shirts, even on casual days. I also understand that […]


Rose print midi

Click on individual photos below for full images.       I packed a body-fitting, rose-print midi dress in my suitcase for my Austin trip just in case the fiancé and I went on a romantic night out. Well, I had a few options for such occasion, but this was the easiest. The dress is […]


Printed mini

  Austin’s weather for the past few days has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve been keeping active with the fiancé, and one of my favorite things to do around these parts is to stroll South Austin on a beautiful day like that one. I love the open market, the great restaurants and food trucks, […]


Style Post: Thigh high slit dress

I had to take advantage of the beautiful Austin weather yesterday! It felt good to walk around with bare legs. Fiance and I did lots of exploring of South Austin and Downtown Austin. For our dinner reservation, I decided on a simple and romantic inspired look. Because romance can be any day of the year, […]
