{Life} Escape from the city


Last weekend I purposely got lost in the woods with my girlfriend for a quick getaway from the city…into a tree house :).  The peacefulness of fall and nature was a much needed break from the never ending energy of New York.  This magical place is located in Newtown, CT on 60 acres of land called Sticks and Stones Farm. There were free range chickens, gorgeous trees, falling leaves and kittens! One who in particular followed us around a couple of times (SO CUTE!) It was such a lovely and relaxing experience.  I highly recommend you going away for a weekend, because it’s nice to just #treatyoself.

Yours in style,

{Style} Breathe and Stop


Most of my downtime is found while waiting on the train.  For some of us, it is the only time where we can disconnect from our phones and take some time to zone out from everyone around us.  The keys escaping for a moment for me is reading a book! What are some of your favorite books to read while riding on a train?

{Style} Leather + The Tee


Strapless anything can give a new look when you layer it on top of a t-shirt.  If you’re feeling extra fancy, a button up is the jam too.  I think that layering is always the way to go when you want to make your “old” pieces look new again.  Take some time this week to play around in your closet to see what you can layer up.

{Style} Skirting The Edge of Fall


The fall chill is on and popping.  I decided to take advantage of the mildly chilly weather (aka. It’s only cold in the morning then still warm during the day) while it lasted.  I think we are now on the tail end of that actually.  It’s getting colder in NY by the minute. Nooooooooooooooooooooooo…


This outfit came about from 2 different vintage shopping trips about a year apart.  You know when you find a piece that you just have to have, but aren’t really sure how it actually applies to real life…well that was my skirt.   I love it!!! I recently purchased the marled button up shirt at Mobile Vintage.  Pairing the masculine and super fem pieces together pretty much matches the story of life.  Contrast is always better.

Shot at the coffee shop in my neighborhood Marcy & Myrtle ! They have THE BEST cortado and cold brew. On top of being super cute inside and out.  The sugar they use is “Complicated Syrup” it’s not simple just so you know. No Basics. LOL

Shadows + Shade


For the month of October, I’m reigning in the spending and shopping from my closet for free.99.  For this look I took advantage of the cooler weather to mix and match some of my go to pieces into one outfit.  Think outside of the box when putting together looks.  I used my vest dress as a sleeveless coat to layer over my black body suit.  The army green skater skirt is an easy to find style that can go with almost anything you pair it with.  The knee high boots add to the mod look.  Topped it off with my favorite crystal pendant necklace.

Booker: The Presentation


I had the pleasure of witnessing a friend’s dream manifest into reality.  It all went down on Friday September 11th at 12PM, at Refinery Hotel.  You heard all about Jameelah when I posted about her Indigogo campaign.  The models were a mix of gorgeous personal friends, models, family and ambassadors of BookerNYC.  The makeup and styling team was on point and a pleasure to work with so early in the morning throughout the afternoon. To see this all come together was a magical moment.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Booker dreams up next season…

{The Aspiring Stylist} Nail Your First Impression

Key stylists are generally always in a hurry when working on a project or prepping for a shoot.  When you are first working with a new stylist, you need to be sure you set a great first impression so that you are asked to come back to work on more projects.  Here a few tips:

Be on time

And by being on time, I mean at least 5-10 mins early. If you are too early, it is annoying to the stylist as they are probably not ready to give you tasks until you arrive.  Allow yourself time to get lost, get stuck on a train , so that you can arrive unscathed and respectful of the stylists schedule.  It also sets on how it would be for the stylist to work with you more often.

Write it out

Be ready with a note pad and pen in hand to take notes (or your phone).  This is not the time to test your memory.  It is easy to to forget small details when a stylist is rambling off things that you need to do for them.

Use your noggin and Google

Can’t find the showroom using the directions that your stylist gave you? Don’t you dare call the key stylist to ask where it is! Or heaven forbid come back saying you just couldn’t find it.  Exhaust all other options before reaching out to them.  Call your fellow assistant stylists/interns to help you or Google it to get the contact information from the showroom.  Common sense for the win!

Yours In Style,




{Life} Afro Punk Fest 2015

I remember my first Afro Punk back when it was in this teeny tiny section by BAM in Brooklyn, circa 2008. My, oh my has this festival grown.  The beautiful shades of all colors is the most breathtaking part of this festival. The space Afro Punk has created is safe, warm and all-inclusive. The people watching was so good! It was a gentle reminder of how gorgeous we all are when we are comfortable in our own skin.

Then there were the performers! Yes. All the Yes.  It was a pleasure to hear the sounds of Lion Babe, SZA, and Ms. Lauren Hill among other talented artists in the midst of beautiful souls.

I wanted to share some shots from the festival, which includes my friends 💗 and other views:
