Poppin:: Black Flare Dress

Today’s look is a fit and flare dress that I shot a few weeks back when I did the big chop off of my hair. I love this dress with its flowery knit applique and fitted top cold shoulder. I topped the dress off with a black trench coat. I added in pearls the black suede stilettos and a diamond handle umbrella. I go for all black everything effortlessly every time.

Golden Nuggets :: Coated Sweater & Knife Pleat Skirt

Do you think anything like me enjoying the last of the Christmas decorations because everyone seems so cheerful? I caught the last of one although we know by the liturgical calendar the celebration is now officially over on January 6th. We all know the Christmas story of the wise men following the star bearing gifts of gold frankincense and myrrh. I drew inspiration being aware that the gold in Christ deems the gold in all of us. I paired mixed metal tones. A metallic coated sweater with a gold lame knife pleat skirt. I added in blue accents and layered a blue bun necklace for a contrasting pop. The dainty French feather tam elevates the look to a chic vintage style.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  Thank you so much for reading, and Happy New Year! [Read more…]

Frigid temperatures here lately that it’s been a bit too cold to shoot. I styled up this beautiful polyurethane faux leather knife pleat skirt with a colorful eel diagonal striped jersey paneled top. This combination provides a slight edge of color blocking with supple leather. Knife pleats are trending right now. I am a sucker for skirts and this one can be worn to the office or cocktails. I layered this beautiful midi with a shearling and topped it off with a cable knit beanie hat. I coupled the accessories with beige gloves and black tall heel boots. I appreciate the sharpness of this look even on a cold frigid day. [Read more…]
