It's supposed to be spring tomorrow and I see snow in the forecast. WHAT. THE. HECK.

That being said, there was that one time where I switched outfits for an event during the middle of winter and pretended it was warm out when in actuality, it was cold AF. But this post is appropriate because even with the snow and cold weather still in our near future, these are some of my favorite spring things (to look forward to): polka dots, midriffs, and freakin SCRUNCHIES. I never thought they would be cool again but they're baaaaack and I'm going to wear them like its 1996. Crossing my fingers for a butterfly clip comeback next!


NYFW Outfit: Second Pick

NYFW Outfit: Second Pick




Like many others out there, Beyonce is kind of my spirit animal. Whenever her song comes on or she's performing on tv, something takes over me and I feel like I AM the queen. Like I can do anything I want and I can be anyone I wanna be. What a boss ass betch, that Bey. So it really wasn't surprising that the moment I got to wear this dress, my inner Sasha Fierce came right out, but you know, in a more classy and demure manner since it was an Alice McCall show that I went to.

By the way, anyone else living for the bows, scrunchies, and headbands that are trending back again? I've been waiting for a scrunchie comeback for years and I'm so excited that IT'S. FINALLY. HERE.

Yes to the bow, yes to the all the bling that makes this dress shine bright like a diamond, and yes to my legs because when else will I ever get to wear something like this again?

I'm late to the party here but New York Fashion Week, I just really love you. It's fun to see the newest trends but mostly, it's fun to see how festive it becomes for everyone. New York street fashion is on another level. It's inspiring, it's creative, it puts a big smile on my face. Over the next few days, I hope to post my favorite outfits I wore to the shows. This is my first pick because I love the cab hat and combat boots. It's a nice twist to a dainty dress. I'm pretty much obsessed with this because never in my life would I have thought that I'd ever wear combat boots. (Just kidding. My 18 year old Myspace self would have worn them. But also my 18 year old Myspace self went through some punk/emo/goth phase that nobody really knew about.)

As some of you know, I started fashion school back in 2016 at FIT and then last summer, I got to study design in London. To make a long story short, I've been learning a lot of what I like and after a lot of thought, I had to say goodbye to FIT this year. The good news is that I transferred to another school and as luck would have it, I can complete my fashion degree in only two semesters! This is pretty huge for me since I'll be 32 in a few months and being in school for much longer isn't something I want to do. The bad news is I missed the fall deadline so I won't be back in the city I love until next spring. But thankfully I'm still working and booking projects so while I won't be living in NYC at least I'll still be able to do work up there.

In the meantime, I'm teaching dance fitness and a fusion of pilates, boxing, and ballet barre while I'm in DC for the majority of the next nine months. So here's a shameless plug for me to invite you all to take my classes and get a fun workout in while burning some serious calories. Message me if you're interested!
