My Wonderful 2 Year Blogiversary Brunch (+ Pretty Mina D. Jewelry)

I woke up groggy, spreading out my right hand looking for my phone.  Once I found my phone, I saw on my cell phone screen a notification from WordPress. WordPress is my blogging platform, and they wished me happy two-year Blogiversery. My grogginess immediately went away, and the excitement made me get out of my bed and jump for joy. Two whole years I thought to myself, wow look at what I’ve accomplished. Although I reached the two-year mark, I feel as I’m still in the begging steps of my journey.  I decided before I focus on continuing working hard I celebrated with a blogger brunch.

Like most tech addicts I wake up from my bed, eyes halfway open and stretch my hand out searching for my phone. Once I retrieve it, I unlock the home page to tap on the cute ghost icon in front of a lemon hue backdrop. Once I enter the app I check a few people’s Snapchat stories; it’s  honestly a  great way to wake up.A morning filled with inspiration with my newsfeed filled with people shopping in the latest pop-up shops, visiting art galleries,rocking-out in concerts or even finding out what’s new on Netflix; Snapchat does have it all.

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.

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.

A Manhattanite Should Be Your New Styling Influencer


It’s not the Big Apple, New York or even the acronym, NYC. Us locals call it “the city.” Now here I am in the city, singing along to Big Sean, “I’m way up I feel blessed, way up I feel blessed.” I connect to this song in a way that I’m lucky and fortunate enough to be raised and still live in this melting pot. Unfortunately, I can’t give out free dim sum after reading this article. All jokes aside, being a fashion addict and experiencing living almost each borough, let’s exclude Staten Island is an amazing adventure. I can quickly take a look out of my apartment window and get inspired. Whether it’s the scenery or the person: right now it’s a guy walking efficiently on the cracked sidewalk. He is wearing an oversize leather tote, a pair of black cat-eye frames and wrapped with an infinity scarf.

This is a man’s world… but it wouldn’t be nothing without a woman

tippler

Lyrics sung by James Brown is a perfect way to express how women are viewed in our society. An exploration of the genesis of pin-up girls, and the history of the movement that started from the 1920’s.It wasn’t until the 1950’s where society learn how the pin-up style let the repressed woman feel good about them. Bettie Page is a great example of a leader who empowers women everywhere for freedom within their own skin. In her days of fame I believe she was the face of female empowerment.I was honored to attend the 13th annual New York burlesque festival a couple weeks ago.It was at The Tippler, a bar that been running 123 years(inserts shock face emoji here) and it was a sight to see with different vendors, a panel with real burlesque dancers discussing their years of experience and a delightful live show.
