Trending Styles: Off-The-Shoulder Tops


I absolutely love off the shoulder tops and sweaters. It’s an easy/chic way to look sexy without revealing too much. I have always been a subtle, sexy kind of girl.
This style is currently trending this season so if you are looking for a wide variety of off-the- shoulder apparel check out Tobi.com. Not only is their selection awesome but the quality of their clothing is equally as awesome. 
Did I just sound like a commercial?  Yeah, maybe.   🙂

Breakfast At Tiffany’s


Ever so often I love to do what I call “Vintage Recreations” on my fashion blog where I use a vintage photo as inspiration for my “Outfit Of The Day”. Unknowingly, when I put this outfit together and was looking over the photos I thought “Oh, Wow, this ensemble reminds me a lot of Audrey Hepburn’s outfit in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“. I guess my vintage style is becoming second nature to me now.
I told my boyfriend about the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” correlation and his response was “What’s Tiffany’s? Do they sell chicken?” O_O

Les Copains Spring 2018

This Les Copains Spring 2018 collection had my name on it………….atleast in my mind.
Inspired by one of my favorite Style Star’s, Millicent Rogers (I did a post on her last yearread here), every piece from the sheer, bohemian chic maxi dresses, red boots and the layered jewelry is something that I would wear everyday, all year around.
This collection is definitely one of my favorites.

Hannah Magazine X Issa Rae


One of my absolute favorite shows right now is “Insecure” on HBO. The main character and Executive Producer, Issa Rae manages to evoke true emotions regarding her relationship with her ex-boyfriend (now), Lawrence. I literally sit there and watch the show and think “I would so feel that way if I was in that situation.”

I have been a long time fan of Issa’s since “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” days on YouTube. My family and I would crack up at each and every episode. I believe our favorite character was “Darius” (the whisper dude)………..ha, ha, ha. I am cracking up now at the thought of him.

Anyway, doesn’t Issa look absolutely beautiful in this fashion editorial? You can order the Summer 2017 issue of Hannah Magazine featuring the talented actress now.

Isabel Scholten X Glamour Italy


Okay, so I am totally loving model, Isabel Scholten’s hair in this fashion editorial and even plan to create a similar style on my own hair this weekend.
Yes, I will take pictures and post them; however, if I feel my finished look makes me look homeless, well, just don’t ask. Just know that I set high expectations but sometimes reality can destroy dreams. 🙂

Little Indian Girl


So today I spent the morning taking care of business……………okay, I was adulting. I had a water leak in the house and had to deal with all that was involved. #sigh
Afterwards, I spent the rest of my day hanging with my boys.
We had an awesome time riding our bikes and rolling down this massive hill that we aptly titled “Smooth Cruise”. #megafun

In The News……………

Okay, first off, it’s been a minute since I have even “touched” my blog and here’s why.   My creative juices has been flowing elsewhere and feel free to visit me at StylePantry.com as I have been a contributing writer for the last few months.
I’m not sure if I ever told you, but I pretty much began my blogging career with Folake Huntoon back in 2011. If you don’t know who she is, feel free to take a look at the blog as her style is bananas (and I’m not saying that because I work for her. Seriously, take a look for yourself)
I have to admit working for her is pretty cool as she literally gives you the keys to the blog and says “Hey, do you what you do best, just let me review it first”.   Not a lot of pressure, she’s like family.

So if you add a full-time job, 3 kids, housework and “Oh, I forgot!”, I am doing a few DIY projects around the house, you will understand why this area of my life has seen tumbleweeds (enter crickets sound)

Now, am I the only one who felt some kinda way when I found out that Jenna Lyons was leaving J. Crew? What?? I mean I read the article on WWD.com and sat at my desk for atleast a good 2 seconds bewildered. I literally felt like I knew Jenna personally. #icant #devastated #perplexed #feelingsometypeofway

Oh, the devastation did not stop there either as this week, the world found out that BeBe is closing not 1, not 20, but ALL OF THEIR STORES. First, The Limited, now this. What next??? What next?

With all the news of major store closings from some of your favorite retailers, it makes you wonder what the state of your local mall will be in the next 10 years. le sigh
