We may have missed New York Fashion Week this year, but we didn't miss southern street style sesh, 101. Remember that old adage, bloom where you're planted? Well, everything is coming up roses in the heart of dixie. 

Want to know the secret of looking like you belong at fashion week? Fur. And an incredibly stylish friend. 

I can feel it rising.

Statement Piece, Holla

Because you don't want to blend in. Because you want to be different. Because you want to make a statement.

"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."

What is your wardrobe telling the world? I think mine walks the tight rope of I want to be comfortable and cool, and she tryna be fancy. Because mixed messages are great and all. #thisishowwedo

Let's Be Chill


March 26, 2015, 9:23 a.m.

Close your eyes (aftter looking at the pics) and picture sunny, 75 degrees, sweet tea, your inner circle, chats, chips, and maybe some warm brownies. I could be craving chocolate, but is that not the definition of chill? If laid back were an item of clothing, it would be denim. If relaxed were a garment, it would be a cozy chic sweatshirt. Embody the vision of calm, cool, and collected with a look similiar to this trio. 

Don't worry be happy.

Wrong Way


March 23, 2015, 2:14 p.m.

If walking the wrong way down a one-way intrigues you, keep reading. If there were rules in fashion, the first one would be to break every one. If you can pair a leather jacket wth a cocktail dress, why not go for it? When you do so, the extremes of the two pieces become more mellow and balanced is achieved. The same can be said for color combination. If you think they don't belong together, more than likely, they are lovers. 

Go the wrong way.

Into the Woods

I may not be Red Riding Hood, but these camo pants are the cape of choice when hitting the wooded streets. You don't have to be afraid, the harshness can be easily softened with sweet, soft blush hues. Think Grandmother's house (sans wolf). 

Juxstaposition is my show, we all know this. Once upon a time, there was a girl who wore camo with blush even though she knew it would create quite a fuss. However, there was no sudden fear in her eyes, because the impending satisfactory surprise. Gone is the story of a damsel in distress, this is the age of fun, fabulous dress.
