One Dark Night

So not too long ago I went out wearing that Leau black romper and had a great time dancing to salsa. I love the summer because we can all let our hair down and enjoy the night without having to wear a coat. Unfortunately, that night I was attacked by a man in an alleged racially motivated incident. Most of the time, police are there to protect you but they aren’t perfect. Subsequently, I started hearing and seeing all kinds of things. I ended up being forced to a hospital where they did not protect me from COVID-19. So now I am recovering and contemplating the fate of this world. Been listening to Solange Knowles “Weary” song from her A Seat at the Table album.

Can you believe something like this would happen in 2021? Have you ever been mistreated like this? And what do you think of the world and our universe today? 

Sincerely,

Ivy Park

Good morning! I’ve been wearing some of BeyoncĂ©’s Ivy Park line that has been really well-designed lately. Workout clothes and even outfits as above have been beautiful. They have all kinds of different sizes for all shapes and they make a woman feel confident and sexy. Looks like Ivy Park is coming out with even more new merchandise under the new Rodeo line. I am definitely going to be watching what they come out with and you should too. Check out more photos below of my Ivy Park outfit and my Steve Madden clear sandals (similar here)

Alero’s Wedding

 

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Bell! My cousin Alero Barrett and DeJuan Bell got married over the Fourth of July weekend and we all had a ball! I don’t know if it was the one year wait, the pandemic shutdown or what but we all cried (happy tears) and partied like never before. The weather was actually a little cool and overcast but I was happy to take it as opposed to severe New York summer heat. Anyway, I wore a Kikiriki lavender tulle dress, a Beauty and the Beast handbag and Steve Madden clear sandals. The bride wore two gorgeous dresses by Diana Mahrach– I was just in love with all the details.

Check out more photos and videos below and if you are planning to be a wedding guest soon, make sure to check out Nordstrom’s curated wedding guest looks here (they’re having a big sale now too).

Office Days

Good morning and happy Monday! So I have been quite busy working recently and with the COVID vaccine I feel a little more free in this pandemic. I have been mostly working from home because of COVID but have recently started going into the office a bit more. A great summer work look I put together is this old white Bebe blazer, a silk blouse along with a vintage Alice and Olivia skirt (similar here), Steve Madden purse (similar here) and Steve Madden “Kenley” heels. So have you been going back into an office?

NYC Restaurant Week

   

So happy New York city restaurant week! I recently stopped by Eataly in Flatiron and of course had to get some food. Unfortunately, a lot of my go-to restaurants in the city have permanently closed due to all the COVID problems. But, I think the city is ready for a comeback and with everything these restaurants had to go through during this pandemic, it’s great to show some support. So why not book your next lunch or dinner? You can check out which restaurants are participating in New York restaurant week here.

Heat Wave

Summer is really here and it’s hot outside! I found the perfect cut out romper for your day party or late night summer adventures. I actually stumbled upon this company Leau on instagram that just had all these cute outfits for everything from a date night to those late night parties. What have you been wearing in this summer heat?
