Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've done a post on OOTD (outfit of the day) and I truly missed it. The fall weather have arrived. This a breezy, a little bit rainy day and I totally forgot to bring a jacket. That, however, worked to my advantage as I got to showcase this simple and comfortable top from Zara. I do adore the zipper detail in the back. Paired with a good, warm scarf and I'm ready to face fall!

This is a pairing video with my newest favorite top, sheer and pink from forever 21. There are many including my mom (haha) that is not a big fan of color but that should not stop you from getting it as it can play as an accent, and if you happen to love color like me, it is such a great way to catch attention and just like any plain item it can always work as a canvas for accessories and patterns. Here are some ways to dress up or dress down your favorite colored sheer top!

I have always dreamt of going to Europe and that's simply my inspiration for this particular look. I adore that they have such a peculiar way of dressing but somehow it works. I love that they exude glamour. However, I went totally opposite with this outfit and decided to use their school girl look as my inspiration. The high socks, the blazer, the oxfords. I thought I looked rather young in this number but it was worth trying out.
The playfullness in this outfit really came from the accessories. I am wearing such basic colors, navy, khaki and white but paired my blazer shorts look with two sets of tights. I added knee high socks with my more translucent tights and wore it with my oxford inspired heels.
I kept everything else simple and sometimes making a statement can be done with just one part of your look. I certainly received some comments on the sock/tights combination.
Thank you all for reading!
Blazer & Shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: DSW ($20!)

Happy Sunday everyone! It was another time well spent with the family. The family went for a Sunday Lunch for my two sisters. I just love our outfit of the day, I thought that it was so attention grabbing because of the colors and prints. Our top is from Zara ($25) that I got yesterday and our bottoms was purchased by mom from http://www.asos.com/ ($17). I particularly love my pants here that mimics a skirt as well and I thought it made me look at least 5inches taller! Maybe that's just my shoes though?! I am wearing platforms by Jessica Simpson and it is so comfortable as high as it is.
I do apologize for the audio in this video as it was a windy day and that kind of interfered with our audio. I hope you guys enjoy this video and the rest of your weekend!
Sad news of the day? J. Crew did not have that good of a sale so I only ended up getting a necklace and ring.

I honestly think that my inspiration for doing this blog and even having the confidence of dressing the way I do comes from my amazing family. They have been so supportive with all of this ever since I started until now and basically, anytime I spend with them is a time well spent.
Today we spent sometime in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia and amazingly, my dad has never been here so it's great that he got to come with us. My sisters and mom really thought about their outfits as well and I just love going out with them and not feeling that I'm over dressed! It was a great day and I hope you guys enjoy this short video as well, have a blessed weekend everyone!

How much do I love this outfit?! After including it in my most recent video, I decided to actually wear it at work and I got an enormous amount of compliments with this one. I just love the trend of color blocking, I think it allows you to be more noticeable, captures such positive attention.
I also particularly love the gold accessories and how it just pops out of the colors I am wearing, it is classy and chic.
I put my hair up on a bun in attempt to go all the way professional, I think it went perfectly with the outfit and the look that I was going for. I hope you guys have a good weekend and thanks for reading!

This week I promised myself that I wouldn't shop at all...well, promises are made to be broken (lol)! To make myself feel better, I decided to make this video in attempt to justify that my shopping spree this week. I spent $100 for 8 items. That's got to be progress right?!

Every so often as I think about how I can update and make the blog better, I find myself challenging my fashion creativeness. The newest challenge is doing a new page strictly for the Young Professionals: How you can incorporate the trends in an office attire, you can update your corporate look. So for those young or even those who are not so young but are looking to update your corporate attires, please look out for my newest page.
For this posting, my inspiration is a text message I got from my coworker who excitedly shared to me about a style TV show that said "Monochromatic Looks are In." The next morning, I was staring at my closet for about 15minutes trying to formulate some kind of an outfit for another work day and it finally occurred to me that monochromatic looks are in! Ha! Took my black pants and paired it with another black thing, how easy was that?!
My top here is actually a vest (bargain find for $5!) and I totally love it for all the details it has. The ruffles towards the bottom and the lace at the back and even it's race back style. I paired it with a cropped F21 pants and some red details to break off the monochromatic look hence accentuating the waist.
*Wink* *Wink* This is a good look for my newest challenge! During the day at the office, I can wear this with a blazer or I can wear the vest with a sleeved shirt to a more appropriate work look.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I finally found time to shoot again and this time, I have a featured item: Black Suede Wedge Ankle Boots. This particular item is from Steve Madden and is a recent addition to my growing shoe collection. I have worn it several times and have gotten so many compliments on it and questions on where I purchased it from, with that, I thought that this will be a perfect featured item.
I hope you guys enjoy the video and please subscribe to my youtube page as well! <3<3<3
