Area NYFW FW 22

                 

Whew! So I have been quite busy but Area has always had some of the most envelope pushing pieces I’ve seen on the runways. This season’s Fall/Winter 2022 Collection is absolutely gorgeous, you can feel like a real Queen in some of their decorative masks, jewelry and garments. The colors are bright and bold and you can make sure to be a showstopper in these outfits. Watch the full video here and happy New York Fashion Week!

Cooling Out

TGIF! I’ve been cooling out and going through old clothes and things getting ready for fashion month. How are y’all doing? The Florida sunset is just gorgeous- I can’t help but take photos. This Gucci top has lasted me well and I remix it with jeans and even my gold pleated skirt (similar here). The beginning of the year is a great time to strategize and regroup, even if it means giving away clothes. I admit to having a nice wardrobe and always feeling like I do not have anything to wear. Do y’all suffer from this problem too? By the way, Farfetch is having a sale…enjoy!

River Flows Mini Skirt

New Year, new skirt! Not sure if you saw my Instagram stories last year but check out my River Flows mini skirt available on Redbubble.

Problems arise but you have to keep it pushing, don’t believe rumors. Anyway, over the holidays I spent some time in church celebrating Christmas and took some time to relax. Anyway, abstract painting is something I’ve always wanted to try and while I admit I’ve been a bit busy, please enjoy this River Flows mini skirt.

Stay tuned for more this year on the blog.

Holiday Bling: Beyoncé Knowles-Carter wears Gucci’s Aria Collection

So the Holidays are upon us. Happy Holidays! Covid-19 is still trying to kick our butts. But we must persevere and enjoy the gift of life in some way. Gucci’s Aria Collection, a collaboration with Balenciaga, looks great on Beyoncé Knowles-Carter in her latest Instagram post. In particular, Nordstrom has a rhinestone version of the Kenley Sandal from Steve Madden that I wore here. It seems that the look is sold out but below you can find some pieces that may do the trick at your next holiday gathering.

Last Call for the M2 “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” Collection

Hey there! So designing this collection was amazing and I am so proud of myself. As you may know, I designed a small spring/summer collection inspired by my Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot painting. Well, this is the last call before I make it an archived collection. 

In these photos, I am wearing the Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot skirt as well as bandeau top. They are both on sale and the sequin denim are great for the Fall. And, don’t worry about me, they always say “this too shall pass.”

What’s your favorite piece of the collection?

Ivy Park

Good morning! I’ve been wearing some of Beyoncé’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).
