I love these shoes from Shoedazzle. Totally affordable and on trend with the floral pattern and sling back style. I paired these shoes with a neon green oversized tank, black blazer and black pants for work.

Out and about in the LES in my coral colored dress from LF! (I was told the color suits me).
Last week I went to LF Stores annual sale. I am talking about 60% off their ENTIRE merchandise. Brands like Jeffrey Campbell, Sam Edelman, Steve Madden and Dolce Vita can be found there and YES it is 60% off too! Hurry though, because once they clear out their merchandise…. well you know, that’s it! It’s done! The dress was originally $178 and I got it for about $60. I also purchased a pair of J. Campbell shoes and a mullet skirt. I love LF! They have stores in New York in Cobble Hill-Brooklyn, SoHo-Manhattan and Chelsea-Manhattan.

No boring silver or gold expected accessories.. And this Aldo necklace is anything but boring.
Close up of accessories from Aldo Stores. Necklace is called Midgette and the clutch is called Lanosa. Click items below to take you to purchase the items. Necklace was part of the 2 for 1 deals and is on sale for $20. The clutch is $40. It is spacious, modern and gorge!
And so it continues.. My unhealthy obsession with J. Campbell shoes has not come to an end!
I present to you The Holy. Heel-less shoes are da s**t.
I would pair these with black or printed jeans or even printed leggings. A cool top and a boyfriend blazer or cropped leather jacket for the Fall. With the Fall season approaching (my favorite season), I am already stocking up on Fall essentials. Back to my go to staples: blazers and skinny trousers!
What I am envisioning:
I had such a great day today at work. NO DRAMA. No screaming banshee lunatics.. No problematic clients. Just easy breezy.. If every day could be like today.
Thinking of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black song.

I looked like a came out if a sci-fi flick today (so I was told). Nothing like an all black suit to walk around the city in the rain.
Hair slicked back thanks to tireless days at the gym. What do my Black girls do when you go to the gym every other day and your hair is short and it sweats out and then u have a Fro! I think I may weave it up for the rest of the summer. Short hair cuts are high maintenance. Any suggestions?

Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Yayoi Kusama is my eye candy. Infusing color and (my fave) POLKA DOTS, into Louis Vuitton! This collection is fun, flirty, sexy and modern feeling. Yayoi Kusama is an icon in the art industry and one of the biggest female artists of all time. Check out her exhibition at the Whitney Museum here in NYC. I plan to check it out sometime next week with photos!
Here are some of my fave items from the collaboration. You can purchase any of these items and more at Louis Vuitton.

I came accross this collection this weekend browsing my normal stomping grounds online and was so excited that I found Chromat! The designs are bold, wearable- structured art, available to women like me who don’t always want to follow the latest trends but create their own. As a woman who isn’t afraid to take a risk on an outfit or be risqué, I am so impressed and inspired by Becca McCharen, the mastermind behind Chromat’s designs, way of just getting risqué right! The structures of her caged designs really exaggerate a woman’s shape in an S&M kind of way; exuding sex and sexyness without looking cheap. What’s even more amazing is that each piece (even down to the swim suits) can be pulled off (for those who dare) without leaving you to look like you came out of the pages of Lady Gaga’s dreams (although for some that would be a dream– [raising my hand]. I just adore this line and cant wait to get my hands on one of the caged dresses and headpieces. That Mickey Mouse headpiece is MINEEEEE!
Check out some of my favorite pieces from her A/W 2012 line and current collection below:
Her designs can be purchased online at Chromat and can be found in select stores in New York, California, Texas, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.

Zara had their semi-annual sale and I was all in their racks and stocked up! I purchased this Peplum skirt for $40, among a few other items. We had a girls night out and saw Magic Mike and chowed down at Negrils in the West Village section of NYC. So it only made sense to dress somewhere in between casual and a notch or two below dressy. Throwing on my comfy wedges instead of stilletos and a cotton tank to pair with the skirt created that comfy look and feel that I was going for without looking like out of place and overdone.
