off we go

30th May 2013

As a kate spade shop stylist, I am usually the one behind the scenes and styling clients … but yesterday, the tables turned when I styled and modeled for style spy: a segment on kate spade’s blog “behind the curtain”! and today i’m sharing some of the highlights! take a peek!
before you go…
pop by the blog for the full post!
although i was lucky enough to style my looks & star in the shoot, all photo’s, products and images belong to kate spade and the photographer. the collages were created by me using the original kate spade photographs pulled from the style spot blog post as featured on the blog.

a little lilac

26th May 2013

today i pair pretty pastel prints with a little bit of pattern.
i’m loving lilac this season! try pairing lavender with seafoam or navy!

if you’re mixing prints, choose two tone patterns that both use white. doing so will preserve the whimsy of pattern mixing without taking the look over the top.
top: modcloth // shorts: j.crew (try yellow) // shoes: kate spade (on sale!) // statement pearls // sunnies: karen walker // handbag: kate spade (on sale!) // ring: forever 21 // arm party: j.crew // michael kors // vintage

shadows && chambray

18th May 2013

today i’m taking a break from my signature over-the-top style to bring you a more simplistic side
 a chambray shirt can be your go to piece for any season, but specifically spring & summer.

 i gave mine a flirty side by paring it with a full & girlie skirt to dress up the denim, but stuck with simple sandals to keep the look classic & casual. 
top: banana republic // skirt: h&m (old) // shoes: nine west // statement pearls // sunnies: karen walker // handbag: kate spade (on sale!) // rings: kate spade // forever 21 // arm party: j.crew // michael kors // forever 21 //

 ps. meet my nyc bestie channing, she is pure perfection…

sometimes, zest is more! so i’m beyond excited to show off my new lemon shorts (yes, lemon printed shorts) in today’s bright && summery post.
 a little bit of yellow can go a long way, but today i opted to double up on this bright hue with two different patterned yellow pieces. i’m especially loving the mix of the two flowers && lemon prints, it simply screams spring!

who wears short shorts? if you do, try pairing it with a solid oxford shirt, the exposed legs in contrast with the conservative sleeves make the outfit more interesting! try tying your top to expose just a little bit of skin to make the look flirty without exposing too much. 
Shirt: J.crew // Shorts: C.Wonder Store // Bag: Vintage // Jacket: H&M (Similar) // Arm Party: Kate Spade Idioms // Vintage Chain Bangle // Sequin Bangle // Kate Spade Idioms // Michael Kors // Kate Spade // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Ring: Forever 21 (Similar) // Shoes: Sam Edelman

flattered by a feature >> bombshell

3rd May 2013

last week, i was honored to be featured on the fashion bomb daily as their fashion bombshell of the day!
fashion bomb daily is known for having some harsh critics who comment on the featured bombshells, but I really enjoyed their support && feedback, here’s what they had to say…

“I live for the over the topness yet chic, darling yet daring, the color blocking, the layering and the all around uniqueness. I’m an accessory fanatic and I love the layered necklaces, the arm candy, the sunglasses …..The first look was pure perfection!!!”
“I Love how her personality shines through her style. Most importantly I LOVE the fact that she is an inspiration to young women. 22 years old, successful, dual MBA degree holder. Praise God!” 
“I see her passion for black & white in these photos. I definitely love her style and very articulate. Nice to have that blend and be refreshing! Bombshell all day.”
“I live for her! I was sold from addicted to anything celebratory to dual MBA! Her fasthions just sealed the deal! #luv #brainsandbeauty”

“I love her! Not only she not afraid of colour and coordinating, but she has layering down packed (something I never seem to get right). I’m also not a fan of a lot of accessories, but it works here. Bombshell”
thanks again to fashion bomb daily and everyone who commented! check out the full feature here, and be sure to check out fbd for your daily dose of fashion!
