I have a small obsession with boots. Instead of becoming a “sneakerhead,” in high school I was the one with every type of boot. The beauty of a boot is that you have so many different option. There’s the blocked heels, skinny high heel, no heel, and lace ups. You can get so much wear out of ankle boots too, they’re a great transitional piece going into the cooler months. Ankle boots are one of my favorite boots next to the thigh high boot.
I feel like everyone should own at least one pair of these fall essentials. You can rock it with some booty shorts or styled with a over-sized leather. These are a must have staple in every fashionista’s closet.

Rihanna is already stealing NYFW’s spotlight with her Fenty X Puma SS18 collection schedule to show this week and her new beauty line launch. Rihanna’s highly anticipated makeup line Fenty Beauty just dropped and of course, she did not disappoint.
People can’t stop raving about this “new generation of beauty.” Rihanna was very keen on creating a makeup line that worked for all women. Rihanna’s collection includes 40 shade liquid foundations, four highlighter duos, 30 shades of stick cream that contour, blotting sheets, and one lip gloss shade. Once I saw the commercial I just knew I want the lip gloss. I always have a hard time finding a gloss the doesn’t look nude or pink on my lips. I absolutely love this lip gloss, it doesn’t go on too glossy and the applicator is very soft. This gloss also has a peachy smell and goes on super smooth. You can get Fenty Beauty at Sephora and Fenty Beauty.com.
Take a look below.

Stripes were very popular during the summer and they’re a great transitional piece for the fall. We’re seeing a wide variety of stripe on stripe ensembles which I am loving.

Can we take a moment to admire the beautiful Zendaya Coleman? First off, her style is impeccable and effortless. Zendaya never disappoints during red carpet events, and her casual style is dope AF. She can literally pull off any look an rock it fiercely. I think what is keeping Zendaya ahead in the fashion game is, she isn’t afraid to take risks with her style. At only 20 years old, I believe this young Queen can become a fashion icon in a matter of two years or less. Zendaya is such a beautiful person inside and out, I love everything about her spirit and how she breaks the norms with such grace and elegance. Did you know that Zendaya and her trusted stylist Law Roach created a clothing line called Daya by Zendaya? This contemporary line is very cool and has affordable items for both men and women of all sizes.
