It was storming here yesterday. It rained cats and dogs. And from what I hear it is still snowing/slushing in some parts of the North. Well, you know what they say. April showers bring May flowers. And one of my favorite flowers are tulips. People sleep on tulips! But they are so pretty.
Anyway Spring usually promises a lot of rain. Do you have a raincoat? If not or if you just want a new one, check out these cute ones below from Vetements, Proenza Schouler and Moncler.
So spring has sprung and I recently came across a few Chanelhandbags that were just so cute! Chanel bags can be expensive but they are worth the investment. Yes, some of them are trends of the moment but you’d be surprised how vintage Chanel bags can transcend time. Sequins and plastic are definitely a thing for Spring 2018. But I’m sure these bags will still be fabulous in the future. Check them out below and contact me for more information!
Happy Spring! Although it may not feel like spring everywhere, I welcome the season. Believe it or not it gets a little chilly in Florida when it’s cold up north. This long-sleeved House of Holland dress is perfect for that in between weather. I paired it with my Steve Madden sneaker heels for a downtown city look.
So, ever since I hit South Florida, the foodie in me has been looking for some of the best eats in town. Well I’ve found a few and I just have to share. Between the fresh seafood, Cubans and Haitians in Florida, you are never without something good to eat.
Anyway so here they are…
1. Guava and cheese pastry from Tulipan Bakery
Between empanadas, croquetas and these guava and cheese pastries it’s a wonder that I haven’t gained any weight since I’ve been here. Grab a couple of these pastries and some croquetas de jamón for a great breakfast.
2. Twice Baked Potatoes from Pinders Seafood
Geez. I have no idea what they put in these potatoes. On a cheat day, I actually will go for one of these. It has to be potato mixed with cream and cheese and God knows what but it’s soo good! I had them with some shrimp scampi and it was the perfect match.
3. Oyster Shooters from Spoto’s Oyster Bar
If you like oysters with the works…(i.e. horseradish, cocktail sauce) these are some of the best in town. The oysters are really fresh and delicious. You have to pair them with a good glass of wine or a cocktail and you’ll be all set to go.
If you’re in the area, let me know if you’ve tried some of these and if you’re a fan too.
While some are dealing with snow, I’ve been enjoying sunny South Florida. While there is definitely not as much to do as New York (and I definitely miss the city sometimes), I welcome the change of pace. Palm Beach is really beautiful and there’s nothing like a good t-shirt and jeans combo when to hang around town. I saw this Gucci Mystic Cat T-shirt on Farfetch and the sequined cat just got me. I absolutely love this shirt and they go great with my Zararipped jeans(similar here) and blue Marc Jacobs handbag. The shirt is actually sold out but there’s several other cute ones.
I also wore this interlaced Gucci ring that I adore as well- a pineapple, a monkey and an emerald. Check out photos of the ring and more below and if you’re up north, consider a trip to sunny Florida for a break!
So sequins have been in for a while now (hello Ashish) and they’re definitely big for this spring. Sequins can be dressed up or down depending on what you pair them with. This Sara Battaglia skirt caught my eye. I’m just a sucker for sequins. Throw it on with a sweatshirt or t-shirt and some sneakers like the photo above and boom, you have a casual look with some major pizzaz. If you love it like I do, hurry up because there’s only a few left!
The New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 Collections have featured many bright colors, especially bright red. It seems that every designer this season has some kind of red in their collection. I guess it’s time to refresh that black and grey that we always have in our fall/winter wardrobes and spice it up with some color. Check out more of these bright red designs below.
So I dreamed that I was in the land of Wakanda last night after getting excited about the new Black Panther movie. I had a home with corn fields and was the happiest woman ever! Anyway, last night Black Panther premiered in Hollywood and the fashion on the purple carpet was absolutely amazing. As a black woman I’m incredibly excited about this movie and can’t wait to see it.
I rarely talk about celebrities but I just had to mention some of the fashion on the purple carpet last night. Musicians Chloe and Halle were in attendance wearing Elisabetta Franchi while actress Lupita Nyong’o looked like African royalty wearing an Atelier Versace dress. Janeshia Adams-Ginyard stunned in a head to toe African inspired crop top, skirt and hat by Tamara Cobus while Angela Bassett wore a canary yellow Naeem Khan jumpsuit.
I wore my Catherine Malandrino leather pants (similar below), a Club Monaco sweater and my Steve Madden sneaker heels. The show was in a parking garage and featured designs from House of Roxy B., Over a Trillion Served and more. They also had wine and pies from Pink Pie available at the show as well.
