RICARDO’S STEAKHOUSE

This past weekend I celebrated my friends 26th Birthday at Harlem’s “Ricardo’s Steakhouse.” I’ve been to Ricardo’s multiple times before and I always leave in total ecstasy. I decided not to be a “Regular Degular” Cardi B’s voice, and not get my usual Fettuccine Alfredo. Instead I opted for the “Ricardo’s Special Patter.” Which included a skirt steak, grilled pork chop, rice, beans, homemade mashed potatoes, and sweet plantains.

This entree was delicious and very fulling for just $26.00. I washed it down with a semi strong “Smoking Gun” for $12.00 which was made of Hennessy, orange juice, and splash of cranberry juice. I will always recommend Ricardo’s Steakhouse. I am highly pleased with the ambiance and the service, a great place for birthday dinners or a night out with Bae.

For dinner I wore a American Apparel burgundy long sleeve top, Paige denim jeans that I cut into shorts since they had a hole in them (innovative) and Public Desire thigh high peep toe boots. I accessorized my look with a chunky Aldo necklace, dollar store hoop earrings and an Urban Outfitter’s black tote.

TOP 4 MUST HAVES FOR FALL 2017

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. This is the season where you can really style up your looks with layering pieces and over accessorizing. Fall is also a great excuse to pull out cool weather staples like over sized cardigans and over the knee boots. I am so ready for this change of weather!!!! Here are my 4 must have items for this fall.

ANYTHING STRIPED

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. Everyone should have some stripes incorporated into their wardrobe this season, whether its bold stripes or a classic pinstripe try it out this season.

PLATFORM SNEAKERS

Who doesn’t want to give themselves a little lift in the height department and still remain comfortable. A cool play on sneaker wedges, platform sneakers gives us a flash of nostalgia while still being fashion forward.

FANNY PACKS

People just can’t seem to get enough of fanny packs especially since Gucci introduced their version of them. Fanny packs are very stylish depending on how you rock it. These sporty bags are super convenient if you don’t want to carry anything on your shoulders or back. This fashionable accessory looks super cute on the fellas.

CROPPED JACKETS

I have an infatuation with anything cropped…..except for jeans since they always look like high waters on me. Other than that my relationship with cropped items has been superb. Cropped jackets can bring that sexiness factor to a look and still have a masculine vibe as well.

BDG Denim Cropped Trucker Jacket $89.00

4:44 ALBUM LISTENING PARTY

This past Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending JAY-Z’s listening party at the 40/40 club. This album is already an EPIC CLASSIC. 4:44 speaks on culture, guilt, regret, infidelity & much more. In ten tracks JAY-Z shows us a side of him that we never seen before. With this album we experienced the Father, the Husband, & Human being that is Shawn Carter. JAY-Z is undoubtly a bonafide lyrical genius!!!! I see this album becoming a game changer for rap culture. WE NEEDED REAL RAP BACK AND THAT’S WHAT WE GOT! If people questioned, how JAY-Z became the first rapper to be inducted into the Song Writer Hall of Fame…..just listen to all 13 studio albums. Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter will forever be known as the “G.O.A.T,” in my eyes.

Expensive Taste

Expensive Taste

 

This Tone of pink is becoming one of my favorite shades for this season. I love this soft/vibrant pink paired with this white Jaquemus flare sleeve short dress. Combined with a Rebecca Minkoff purplish metallic envelope clutch, & Gucci two-tone shades. Of Course, I had complete this look with a matching pink matte lipstick.
