FALL OBSESSION ANKLE BOOTS

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.

Take a low below to see a few trendy boots this season.

NYFW SS18 RECAP

Another fashion week has come and gone, and I can’t be more pleased with the outcome this season. Designers bought the drama the theatrics and beautiful silhouettes. sequins

Monse Maison

Love these silhouettes at the Monse Maison show. Monse was inspired by collegiate wear and sports uniforms. Bold colors, stripes, denim

Naeem Khan

Helmut Lang

This whole collect was beautifully executed. I enjoyed the sheer silhouettes and the abstract looking bralette. This show was more like an art show than a fashion show, every look was superb.

Laquan Smith

Laquan Smith brought us back to high school with his presentation. Lots of beautiful plaid pleated skirts, thigh high boots, fishnets & camo sets.

Ralph Lauren

Normally designers would present their SS18 line but Ralph chose the See now, Buy now method. Ralph Lauren always executes classic pieces at all his shows. He debuted his Menswear FW17 collection at his own garage in Bedford, NY. Ralph give us an array of gingham suits, leather biker jackets, jacquard knit sweaters and satin slips.

Cushnie et Ocho

Frida Kahlo was the inspiration behind Cushnie et Och. Lots of slinky slip dresses, corset pieces, and airy silhouettes. Loved these peachy oranges tones.

Jeremy Scott

Always bring us something different to the runway

Brandon Maxwell

Oscar de La Renta

Fenty X Puma

Rihanna stole the show with her moto cross fused surfer, athelic gear. Her show was full of leather, cropped pieces, windbreakers, & heels flip flops. 

Adam Selman

Ulla Johnson

Assembly New York

Tom Ford 

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan is never one for subtlety, and this season was about pumping up the volume even more on his opulent designs.

Helmut Lang

Lang is beloved for his minimalism, for making luxury items out of everyday staples, for a unisex approach to dressing, and for his fetish-y streak. You can guess which aspect Oliver was interested in. Yes, there was some attractive streamlined tailoring, and yes, again, there was a swanky black parka, and a baby pink one, as well. But what there was in abundance was kink: asymmetric bras and daring peekaboo harnesses, rearless pants suspended from the waistband like garters, leather codpieces, and strappy BDSM gear. Girls and boys both carried or wore patent bags that unzipped to create old-fashioned, hugely oversize brassieres.

FENTY BEAUTY LAUNCH 9/8/17

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.

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.

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.

Summer is finally here and it’s HOT AF. Below are a few of my favorite trendy pieces that can be wore from season to season. From the runways to A-list celebrities then right into our closets, fashion lovers can’t get enough of these popular trends. My favorite trends for the season are off the shoulder silhouettes, anything gingham, wrap dresses, sliders, and of course the dramatic exaggerated sleeve.

EXAGGERATED SLEEVE

Exaggerated over the top sleeves are a must have this season. Extra wide, ruffled, or extremely long sleeves gives any outfit a fashionable vibe. Whom would have thought that covering up some skin could be so sexy?

THE​ REAPPEARANCE OF SPORTSWEAR BRANDS

CHAMPION, NIKE, & ADIDAS are some of the popular sportswear brands that I’ve been seeing all over my newsfeeds. Do Y’all know that track pants are now acceptable in the workplace? Yup, it is, with the proper styling of course. The sudden appearance of oversized hoodies, track pants, sports bra and logo tops is a little overwhelming to me. Sportswear brands have been in heavy circulation since the 90’s, and as we know, history has a way of repeating its self.

Entertainers & Designers have collaborated with many popular sports brands which created an immense amount of popularity throughout the years. Take Rihanna’s collections with Puma. The Fenty collection by Rihanna has elevated the brand in a phenomenal way. I know theres a few critics out there that didn’t care for Puma before the “Creeper,” were created. Let’s not forget what Kanye West did for Adidas with his Yeezy collections. Still can’t get my hands on a pair of Yeezy sneakers.

Keep scrolling to see some Celebs looking very casual in their active gear.
