Cool Front :: Shades of Blue

The weather has certainly been beautiful this week, while we all patiently wait for Spring. The cool front has been refreshing and why not continue to dazzle in more Winter looks. I am wearing shades of blue, a navy double-breasted over coat accented with pleather details on the cuff and waist. I paired the coat with a drape front leotard blouse and crystal embellished mid rise skinny jeans, platform pumps and an oldie but goodie Chanel handbag.

Weekday Wardrobe

Monday Jan 9

Last week I began working in my home office, of course I’m still in the process of organizing and decorating. Meanwhile, I thought to make it fun and photograph what I was wearing. It has been really cold here in the District, so working from home has provided both balance and a less stressful environment from the rat race.  Likewise, I must add that it was pretty productive.

Emerald Green :: Asymmetric Top & Metallic Jeans

IMG_4328 All Green

I was invited to the DMV’s own Mike Brooks Comedy All Star Happy Hour at Martini’s earlier in the week.  The happy hour showcased five additional comedians that kept the crowd laughing all night.  I decided since it was the middle of the week to wear an ensemble that had punch. It is something about the color green that seems to attract opportunities.  I wore an emerald asymmetric top and metallic jeans. I accessorized the color with my favorite gold Jimmy Choo platform pumps and my navy Valentino rock stud clutch.  I snapped a few photos at the venue. I was also lucky enough to catch Mike Brooks as he entered the building for a quick photo op.  Mike is also the creator of various parodies that humorously exaggerates popular reality television series that are featured on YouTube.  [Read more…]

Pink Asymmetric Top & Blue leopard Denim

Pink and Blue_2921

Everyone was out and about the last four days attending the various venues for the 44th Annual Legislative Conference, Congressional Black Caucus here in the District.  I for one did not participate in any of the events this year, yet I did ride downtown and witnessed the large crowds and networked a bit.  I went to Happy Hour at Acadiana restaurant with some of my girlfriends. We had a ball while chatting and catching up over cocktails and appetizers.  The weather was nice, it’s still Summer here, so I dressed casually for the occasion.  I remixed a pink asymmetric top, Dolce and Gabbana blue leopard denim, a silver prada belt, my Jimmy Choo Anouk silver and black pumps coupled with my navy Valentino rock stud clutch.  It was a winning weekend, while at the restaurant we did a quick photo op with Muriel Bowser Democratic Nominee for the District’s 2014 Mayoral Election. I later went to the movies to see Denzel Washington in The Equalizer.  It was absolutely sexy and I would not mind seeing it again. [Read more…]

Purple Passion & Indian Pink

imageI love jewel tones and tend to gravitate to them.  This outfit reminds me of a pretty little palette.  The purple passion metallic mirror jeans are originally black with a fabric paint overlay.  I love this new trend – it gives sparkle.  Our forecast called for thunderstorms, so we had rain off and on.  I was not sure if we would be able to capture any shots with the rain and overcast, but we pressed on anyway.  I paired a indian pink silk blouse and lavender satin pumps to complement the jeans, and accessorized it with matching David Yurman jewelry.

Robins Egg Blue :: Kors Trench & Matching Pants

I ran a few appointments downtown.  It seems that the time is moving extremely fast this summer.  We’ve had some tricky weather over the last few days shuffling between a heat wave and a cold front.  Since we’ve had a mild cold front I went in the closet pulled an old Robins Egg Blue, Michael Kors trench coat and matching pants ensemble that I find hard to part with.  It’s still in pretty good condition, so I continue to make good use out of it.  As Dee Dee and I met over lunch we discussed some of the photography visions for the blog as you see here in this post.  I hope you all enjoy reading and Have A Great Weekend!
