This Goes Out to my Brooklyn Crew…

There is no one more proud than a Brooklynite. I mean it is the birthplace of two of the most elite rappers ever. So as I was scrolling Instagram, I came upon a picture of Angela Yee rocking a dope skully. It said “New York Money Maker” and instantly I was drawn to it and needed to know where she got it from. The company responsible is called Classic Material NY. And it is a Brooklyn based company that makes dope hats, tees and skullies. Here are my favorite picks from the website. I also love this dope sweatshirt which had the iconic line “I don’t fuck around with the… Continue Reading

Save on Style: Kim K’s Waterfall Coat

I know almost every Instagram boutique sells the infamous Kim Kardashion Waterfall coat… I have seen it for sale for $100, which is wayyyyy less than what Kim paid for her luxury coat but I have found it for way cheaper… Boohoo.com is to the UK what Forever 21 is the United States. You can snag the latest trends for an affordable price. They offer the coat in a multitude of colors. And the coat is only $35 plus 30% off. ¬†That’s a very good deal!!! I ordered the coat in mocha. What color will you order?

Flame Emojis: Sophia Webster Kelsey Boots

One of my favorite 90’s trends is the lumberjack plaid. Red and black…. Iconic to say the least. One of my favorite whimsical brands took the grungy 90’s trend and whipped up a fierce boot. Sophia Webster is a high end shoe designer but the Kelsey boot is currently on sale for $698 down from $1395. Expensive, I know but I’m a sucker for a good shoe. Here is how I would rock the boots Sophia Webster is currently having a 50% sale on her website. Check it out www.sophiawebster.com

Feels Like Vegas, Don’t It?

For me, planning what I’m going to wear on my trip is just as important as planning the actual trip. For my February jaunt to Vegas, I want to channel my inner Michelle Phiefer from Scarface. Slinky dresses and tops that show just the right amount of skin. I was inspired by the clothes selection from online retailer fox maiden.com.au All of the pieces are from the Australian label Misha Collection. Prices range, but I have included an conversion pic of how much a dress would cost in American dollars (from AUD) For more affordable options, head over Missguided.com nakedwardrobe.com or fashionnova.com  

Audio Luxury…

Dr. Dre is making moves. The low key producer has quietly linked up with the Luxury fashion house Fendi to bring hypebeasts a high end spin on the Beats by Dre headphones.     The headphones are “tone on tone” and are made with the finest of Italian leather. The headphones also come with a leather Fendi case. Now you know that luxury costs and these babies will set you back $1200. They also come in a “True Blue” color which would be perfect for the spring. You can grab these headphones on the luxury brand’s website: www.fendi.com The dark blue headphones are already sold out. Be prepared to see… Continue Reading

Personal Style Inspiration: Fur

One of the things I love about blogging (when I have the energy to) is that I can share my style ideas and inspirations with other fashion enthusiastic divas. Unlike some, I don’t mind sharing where I got my things and how much I paid for it.       One of the many stylish women I follow, Jennifer Le (@iamjenniferle on Instagram) is a shoe and accessories designer who has awesome personal style. She is developing a fur line I believe and often models her creations. She is who inspired me to add fur add opulence to a parka. Here is my take. I ordered my rabbit fur vest… Continue Reading
