Poor quirky girls. Why aren’t mannequins designed for us during the holidays? No, we don’t want to wear sequins and glitter. We have nothing against the aforementioned but being typical is so untypical for gals like us. I styled the looks above while thinking about the girl who just want to be chic during the holidays. Style posts flood our FB timelines and Instagram feeds this time of year with metallic silver and gold looks. I’ve had enough of this!
I hope these look inspire you to be chic, daring and original at your holiday party. Please share your holiday looks with us by sending your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see what you’ve come up with!
Is it just us or has Rita Ora been killin’ it lately? Her friend and longtime friend and stylist, Kyle De’volle has been doing a great job. We’re blowing kisses at his work today. Check out more photos of her here.
I’ve always believed that it’s never too early to shop for Spring/Summer. Actually, that’s what I really do. I like to collect pieces and accessories all year around for my favorite time of the year!
Alexander Wang’s Spring 2014 collection has been a huge inspiration and guide for looks that I will experiment with come Springtime. Must say that I’m loving the white, black, pale pink and blue palette on the runway. Less is more in the fashion world, and this collection packs a minimalistic punch. So dream and drool away, Glamazons – we have more than enough time to plan for that lovely first day of Spring.
The eye of providence (pictured on the bodysuit) is a symbol that represents the all-seeing eye of God. It serves as a reminder that our deeds are always observed. Aside from the deep meaning, it’s just a really cool symbol!

I have leaked pics all week of the amazing shoot that I had last weekend in Georgetown with photographer, Sadrea Muhammad. In this two-part style post, you will see the beauty of minimalism happen in one of DC’s most gorgeous and historic neighborhoods.
Sadrea and I did not discuss a vision beforehand and I styled myself only an hour before our scheduled meeting time. Since the phrase “Less is more” is an ongoing theme in my styling career, I wanted to showcase that. Gone are the days of over-dressing. Personality is the best accessory that one can wear – and I like to use mine as my statement piece.
The style from my first look was an inspiration to me when I was 17. There was an awesome store in Georgetown named Guacamole, and it carried punk fashion. I fell head over heels for it! It helped me start creating who I wanted to be and it was at that store that I began to tell the world who I was.
I am on the edge and I haven’t stopped telling the world since.
