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?

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?

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.
