    Winter Darks…

    Fashion is so fast paced that keeping up is near impossible but not style, style is the true definition of ones personality and since style is about utilizing the best of us, we are urged to challenge ourselves and continuously improve our style. As I have repeated over, I love the fluidity of style and I always encourage creativity, innovation and style fun. For this look, I totally stepped out of my comfort zone in both silhouette and hues. I usually pair dark tones with lighter or neutral shades to compliment the darks so combining only two colors in the dark spectrum was a first for me which surprisingly, I…

    Bra or Bikini…

    Vacations are always something to look forward to. A vacation be it “mini”, “midi” or “maxi” is always a production for me. I get so determined and creative about what to wear and how to wear it and then down the line, get anxious and frustrated if they do not turn out the way I want. Took me a looong time to get over myself and really enjoy the simplicity of vacation fashion (talk for another day)😉. Now to the real gist.. Bikini days are so much fun!! It’s safe to say that we are all aware of this hashtag #effyourbeautystandards. This hashtag has created so much debacle yet it is…
