Outfit Diaries | Winter ’16

Happy Hump Day:

These Outfit Diaries have definitely become my new favorite ‘fashion series‘ on my channel. Compared to my regular ol’ lookbooks,  which are a lot more planned & styled according to it’s theme, these looks are actual outfits I have worn out & about within the past few months. As much as I love dressing up a little bit crazy for my videos, it’s nice to be able to present outfits that are a lot more comfortable.

Regular lookbooks are perfectly sassy, with over-the-top looks while outfit diaries present accuracy & real looks I’d wear on an everyday life basis.

Check out some of my favorite outfits I wore this winter season:

 

Thank you for watching! Which look did you like the best?

The Sister Tag | Video

Happy Monday:

I hope you had an amazing weekend! My weekend’s been pretty chill – I spent Saturday working on a school project at a friends house & spent my Sunday doing some Spring Cleanin’. It was desperately needed; I already feel more at ease with what’s to come as far as life & time managing goes. My foundation is organized. #blessed

I managed to even get a video edited this weekend: I introduce to you my sister, Bernice.

We’ve been talking about filming this video since 2014, and FINALLY, we found time to make this Sister Tag happen. I don’t film tag videos often, so I hope you enjoy this personal video!

Sit back, relax & watch my sister and I act like fools.

Would you guys like to see more personal videos like this one? Leave any recommendations in the comments.

Thank you so much for watching1! Sending my love!

‘Till next time,

Happy Wednesday:

On December 15th, I started the Parsons x Teen Vogue Fashion Essentials Online course. I am seriously blessed to be able to dive into the business world of fashion through this course – I don’t really get that fix fashion gives me when I’m taking  the theater classes at my University. This online course consists of 5 different classes, and I am beyond stoked to finally be done with the first one!

It’s recommended that you take 2 weeks to complete each class, but luckily, they give students a full year to complete the entire course. With my busy, busy schedule, that’s definitley something I consider a blessing.

The first class is all about Visual Styling – expect another outfit post next week formatted very similar to this post. The assignment that inspired these series of photographs was based on a mood board I was assigned to create on Pinterest. The mood board was inspired by the aesthetics and fashion/styling images that described me. Since I am a lover of the urban, bohemian vibes, it came as no surprise that my Pinterest board screamed “Urban Queen.”

Creating the Pinterest board was the first assignment – next up, we had to create an image, or a series of images in my case, that reflect the mood board.

Here is a screen shot of my mood board:

Since this is a fashion course, and I obviously have a fashion blog, I wanted to really showcase my inspired outfit with a full blog post – thus this post that you’re currently reading. Here are the images that were inspired by my mood board:

I absolutely love how these photos came out! I want to give a huge thank you to my best friend, and photographer, Oscar, for capturing my vision. There’s nothing but good vibes whenever we work together.

What do you think of my outfit/aesthetic? Does it honestly reflects my mood board?

Would you be interested in me doing a full-on review on the course when I complete it? Please let me know down bellow – I would love to know!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Sending my love!

GRWM: Everyday Neutral Smokey Eye | Video

Happy Monday:

Today’s post is definitely different from my usual content – it’s extremely rare for me to produce beauty related videos/posts. I don’t see the point in me putting energy into the beauty department when there are SO MANY beauty bloggers and vloggers who are professionals and know every inch of that world. Me? I still can’t even do my eyeliner without a ridiculous amount of focus. That’ll be evident in this video.

I do, however, enjoy sharing my beauty related routines. I am definitely the type of makeup gal that prefers more neutral, simple make-up looks. In this video, I share with you an everyday makeup look that is a little more glam than my everyday-everyday makeup look:

 

 

Do you enjoy these types of videos? You dig the voice over? Please let me know down below – I started playing around with full-coverage make-up lately and would love to share my current routine!

Thank you so much for stopping by,

‘Till next time.

February ’16 Collage & Wishlist.

Happy Friday:

My goal was to get this post up on Monday, February 29th, but with the way my life is set up at the moment, I can no longer have a set schedule for my blog or YouTube. Life’s just way to hectic.

I recently got hired as a wardrobe assistant for the costume shop at my University, so I am officially out and about 5 days a week. I’m seriously trying to work on my time managing this month. Do you have any tips you don’t mind sharing? Help a girl out & leave them down below!

Back to the point of this post: 

Even though I am a few days late, committing to monthly collage’s & wish lists are still in the plan of things.

Day Dreamer:

February’s collage was inspired by my love for bohemian and sporty vibes.  I’ll forever be an urban child, especially being born & raised in Brooklyn, New York, the city life is my life. I channeled my inner Urban Queen for an assignment from my Parson’s x Teen Vogue Fashion Essentials online course, so the love for them vibes is real. Expect an outfit post next week on the assignment. Also in February, I came across an opportunity to work as a wardrobe assistant in the Theater Department’s costume shop at my University, and I officially started this week. I couldn’t be more happier with this job & am excited to learn more about handling clothes. I can definitely see myself using my gained experience  outside of work & into my personal & professional life. In mid-February,  I  attended a fashion show & a presale showcase during NYFW, which were both super lovely. Shoutout to my fellow fashion blogger, Sheismelrose for the invite. My next post will be dedicated to both events – stay tuned! This month has been extremely fashion filled, and I couldn’t be happier. 

 

Welcome to the Good Life: 

Casual Gal.

There’s definitely a theme happening in this post. I’ve been seeing pastel dusters everywhere lately & the struggle of wanting one is serious. Anyone else digging the pastels on outerwear? Since shaving bald, I find that I love wearing tighter silhouette’s to really flatter my figure & I’m totally digging it. It’s why I decided to add this choker/off-the-shoulder top. As far as jewelry goes, I’m all for the silver and black diamonds. Always have been, always will be. Last, but certainly not least, for make-up, all I want is lots and lots of lashes. In 2015, I got really into fresh & simple make-up looks, so I basically stopped doing my eyeliner. 2016 has been no different; since this year has started, I’ve only worn eyeliner twice – and to be honest, I don’t plan on rocking it any time soon.

  • Soho Girl: High Waisted Distressed Skinnies. $40
  • Pixie Market: Grey Chocker Off-The-Shoulder Top $65
  • Miss Selfridge: Blush Duster Coat $91
  • Alexander Wang: Mini Rockie Black Bag $644
  • Nike: Roshe One Sneakers $73
  • Billy The Tree: .24ctw Black Diamond Heart Earrings $115

Happy Weekend!
