Find Out The Mystery Behind Meggings! (Yes You Read Correctly, Leggings For Men)

meggings8Think about the Soho sneakerhead who is a little overly obsessed with Kanye West’s fashion line. I’m hinting at Yeezy Fall 2015 collection, models wearing oversized tees and body stockings. A “Soho Sneakerhead,” one who is trend driven, a perfect candidate to wear meggings without breaking a sweat. I also firmly believe in wearing the fitted style you must be a man who loves wearing skinny jeans.

I challenged my roommate who religiously wears skinny jeans to test a pair of men leggings from Kapow Meggings.

Eddie Eddie by Billy Tommy SS17: Style Fashion Week

eddie1You don’t think of wearing sweatshirts and hoodies in the spring/ summer season. However, The collection Eddie Eddie by Billy Tommy will make you reconsider.His designs resemble a mix of the then and now hip hop culture while reviving every true fashionista love for vintage gems.

I initially was drawn to the Eddie Eddie brand in 2013.One day I was scouring through magazines pages, being a typical fashion blogger and paused when I saw a spread devoted to the Harlem-born rapper, A$AP Rocky.Not only did I like A$AP Rocky because I enjoy listening to his music, but (were also born in the same borough and) I respect the influence he has in the fashion world. As I flip through A$AP Rocky’s spread, I fell in love with a dope sweater design by Sean Kinny.(Sean Kinny is the designer of Eddie Eddie by Billy Tommy.) The sky blue sweater seemed like someone doodled a dollar sign in the center.The dollar sign aligned with various woven diamond patterns.This is one example of the designer many creations.

As the years went by I saw Kinny’s designs in e-commerce shops such as  Refinery 29 and La Petite Mort. Continue reading

Switch Your EyeWear To Match Your #OOTD With Warby Parker

  Glasses can have an enormous impact on your overall look.I kept this in mind when I decided to purchase a pair of frames last year. I thought to myself, which style of glasses will go with everything I wear. I went with a pair of typical black plastic frames.The more I wore my glasses, the more I felt stuck and ordinary, so I decided to buy contacts to help freshen up my look. I love my contacts, but everyone who wears contacts knows you must give your eyes a rest.The stuck and ordinary feeling came back when I had to wear my typical black frames again..Purchasing my dark glasses felt similar to giving the eye center my arm and a leg.(it cost me $800.00)Then one day my friend came to me like an angel of fashion eyewear heaven.In one week I saw her sporting about five different eyewear looks, and I thought to myself how she could afford to have a range of frames?

A signature look is a term I never identified with., Every time my friends try to determine the key items I’m known to wear they could never find a way to put into words other than, Melrose dresses differently.Agreeing with my buddies, I can’t envision one style I’ve clasp to more than any other over the years. I’m not sure my personal style has any defining characteristic. On the other hand, I’m often inspired by fashion icons signature looks,such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s elegant scarves, oversized shades, and peacoats.Another fashion icon with a recognizable look is Bianca Jagger, a personal favorite. She favored high waisted pants, furs, and sequins.

What Should Be The Finishing Touch To Every Woman Outfit? The Answer Is Ssh-oes!

Are you the woman at work making a click-clack sound as you stroll through the office hallways? I know I’m not the only one exhausted of coworkers acknowledging my presence before I enter a room. Luckily I met someone who changed the noise volume my heels made as I walk. I met Mary Arnett a few weeks ago at a GirlBossNYC event.(GirlBossNYC is a social network of empowered and inspired NYC women supporting community, careers, and each other). Being the fashion addict I am, I notice a high-quality leather shoe from across the room. I approached Mary and urged her to spill her shopping secret. I needed to know which retailer she purchased the coal-black fringed booties she was rocking. Astonishingly Mary designed the booties. Strongly feeling like a cartoon character with googly eyes, Mary quickly took notice of my attraction towards her shoes and explained the story of her design.

The One Fashion Trend Pretty Little Liars Can Agree On Is…

“AHHHHHH,”   pinmeI’ve always been a fan of a  splendid scream in a scary film. My mother told me my love for suspense trials all the way back to my toddler years.I will laugh at a scene, and other little girls will scream, bite their nails or squirm in their seat. Not to fret I did watch the thrillers by accident, my mother didn’t purposely put on a horror movie to watch me laugh at it.Not only was I giggling at scenes that will make children look under the bed for an imaginary monster, but I will also do other odd things.For example, instead of going to school dressed like everyone else I will cry at the top of my lungs because I couldn’t go to kindergarten, dress the way I was. My magenta Barney’s slippers, stone wash denim overalls and my half stripe, half polka dot long tee was drench in tears by the time I switch my outfit for my school uniform. I still don’t remember why I was crying as if it was the end of the world but heck I believe is fine to be weird, as us fashionistas will say normal is boring.

With a soft spot for mysteries and my obsession with fashion,the television series Pretty Little Liars is my ultimate guilty pleasure.One of the cast members of the show recently announced season 7 would be the last of the television series.With that said,  Netflix became my best friend the past few weeks and I caught up on season 6. I wanted to be prepared for what seems to be the end of my guilty pleasure.(I’m currently writing with silent tears!)

IMG_4670Rolling out of bed after working your ass off the whole week, a Bottomless Mimosas is one of the best ways to reward yourself.

I got the pleasure of rewarding myself last Sunday and let me tell you there is nothing like wining down with a brunch buffet  ( including dipping rice krispy treats in a chocolate fountain). Sharing laughs amongst friends was the ultimate remedy. All thanks to  my yearly LIM College alumni, “Brunch and Bubbly” event at the Hornblower Infinity Cruise. The cruise included the buffet, bottomless mimosas, a stunning Manhattan scenery and great classical music it was indeed the perfect day off.

For this occasion since you have the help of liquid courage,  you’ve got to make sure you’re in it for the long haul. Once you start you never know where the day may take you. The key is to dress comfortable, not super casual.

Before I went to the event,  I took a long look at my mirror and checked off my “What To Wear To A Bottomless Mimosas Brunch” checklist.
