The Fashion at Inauguration Day 2021

So I just had to take another look at all of the beautiful fashion on display at Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day ceremony. Michelle Obama looks absolutely amazing in Sergio Hudson, a Black designer from South Carolina. Dr. Jill Biden wore an ocean-blue wool tweed coat over a dress by American designer Alexandra O’Neill of the Markarian label. And, Vice President Kamala Harris wore a purple outfit by a young black designer Christopher John Rogers.

Jennifer Lopez sang in a Chanel number and Lady Gaga stunned in a gorgeous Schiaparelli design. Lastly, a young poet laureate Amanda Gorman wore a yellow Prada coat. It was a moment that will go down in history. Congratulations to Vice President Kamala Harris and President Biden!

Black Leather Remix 2

Happy Tuesday folks! So recently I was unfortunately looking to wear all black for a memorial and pulled out some of my black leather items. Believe it or not, winter descended upon South Florida. Black leather not only keeps you warm but it can be very stylish. And, you can mix them up as they make great classic pieces. I wore a Bailey 44 top (similar CAMI NYC Camisole here) and a vintage Catherine Malandrino skirt (similar pencil skirt on sale here) with Jessica Simpson heels. For a little drama, you can always pair a black leather look with a big black hat (similar Gucci hat here) as seen below.

M2 The Making

Hi everyone! I want to introduce M2 to you. It was to come out a little earlier this Spring/Summer but with the virus I waited around to introduce it. If you’ve seen my latest post, I have been going through a lot but one must keep the faith. These clothes are beautiful and inspired by my “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” painting. They are available in different sizes here. We worked hard down in Miami earlier this year and I hope you love them!

Luxury Silk Loungewear

 

Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend. So, depending on where you are, some things in your town have probably started opening up. Coronavirus or not, I find myself still staying home for the most part. And, sometimes I put on a cute outfit but other times, I’m in my pajamas. Red Valentino and Ciao Lucia have some cute luxury silk loungewear available for pre-order on ModaOperandi. We’re all in the house so why not splurge on some nice silk pajamas?

Don’t Forget about Dad

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s mid-June but Father’s Day is coming up and well, don’t forget about Dad! I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and I can’t wait to spend time with my father on Father’s Day. From playing with my dad’s belt (as pictured above) to attending my father’s non-profit Inner City Youth Golfers, Inc. (ICYG) events, I am still my father’s little girl. What are you planning to do for the holiday?

Nordstrom has a great Father’s Day gift guide and some of the items are on sale. I came across some great Luigi Bormioli tumblers that your Dad can use for his favorite drink for only $30 as well as a great Brixton hat that is currently 40% off. Walmart also has some great gifts that include grills, exercise equipment and more. Check out some of the gifts below and enjoy the day!

Paige Denim Overalls and Walk to The Beach Face Mask

Happy Friday! I know there’s a lot going on in the country right now and life can be overwhelming, but you have made it to the weekend. Best to take good care of yourself, whatever you have to do.

In order to help keep you safe and healthy, I’ve developed some cute masks that have found their way to the artwork shop. Yesterday I wore my Paige Denim overalls (similar SJYP here) and Walk to the Beach face mask to run a few errands. Why not collect several masks and enjoy wearing them with different outfits?

Proenza Schouler Masks for Mayor’s Fund

So I started wearing a mask to go out and run errands amidst the global coronavirus pandemic. And, as a New Yorker, my heart goes out to the essential workers and vulnerable people of the city. Proenza Schouler is supporting the relief efforts in the city with seven limited edition masks made from archival collection fabric. 100% of the net proceeds are being donated to the New York City Mayor’s Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund. So you can be cute, protect yourself and help the situation in New York at the same time. See more below!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

So, Mother’s Day is May 10 and quickly approaching us. Although most of us can’t take our mom out to brunch, we can definitely still make it a special day for mom! I came across a few cute gift ideas, check them out below.

1. Johanna Ortiz High-Rise Linen Pants– These pants are perfect for the spring/summer. They’re cute, airy and linen. Mom might love these.

2. Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker– We are all spending more time at home during this coronavirus quarantine, why not gift mom a great speaker so she can relax outside with her favorite music?

 

3. Skims Shapewear– We all could use a little shapewear to get in that dress. Try gifting Skims Shapewear to mom, she might really appreciate it!

 

4. Makeup Mirror with Brightness Control– this makeup mirror turns on automatically as your face approaches and moms love a good face beat!
