BASEL OUT. BOXY SUITS IN.

We came. We saw. We baseled, as the kids say. Only I didn’t basel hard. Nope, not at all. I kept it minimal by attending 3-4 events that I wanted to really go to, and that was good enough for me. I escaped on Saturday for a couple of hours to check out the Art…

PRIM AND PROPER FOR THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is three days away and I’m already packed and ready for a week of parades, turkey, and shopping with Coco, the kids, and the rest of the fam bam. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am! Not just to hang out with la familia, but to enjoy that crisp, fall…

PEARL MADNESS FOR FALL

When I was brainstorming this post, I intended to write about all the sheer trends I’ve been seeing lately at the stores and online; but, as I sit to catch up and finally write this post and get it out to you, it hit me. Why not focus on a bigger fall trend? One that…

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

We’ve all have heard the expression, “home is where the heart is.” We’ve heard it in a Hallmark movie, probably have seen it on an inspirational quote magnet, or even read it on an embroidered pillow. All kidding aside, this post took me a bit to write because I often struggled with that saying. I…

POWER SHOULDERS FOR FALL

I like to make a statement anywhere I go, and what better trend says ‘hey, look at me!’ than power shoulders! Yasssss queen, I am all here for it. It’s an 80’s trend that I wish never died. I remember vividly my mom getting dressed in the morning in one of her fabulous suits and…

STOPPING TRAFFIC IN FALL NEON

Let’s be real- if you’re busting out the neon in your wardrobe, it’s not because you want to blend in; on the contrary, it’s a fashion cry to stand out. The beauty of neon is that it is absolutely wearable and meant to be bold and be front and center Yes, it can be a…

ROAMING THE CITY STREETS LIKE..

I have a thing for rooftops. This one is at my BFF and his partner’s apartment in Harlem and it’s such a nice retreat. Since we no longer have our NYC place, which by the way, boasted an amazing roof deck where I would frequent for tanning and afternoon get together with friends, I love…

HEALTHY DOES A BODY GOOD

The irony isn’t lost on me that I’m writing this post while recovering from a bout of horrible food poisoning. The last thing I want to think about is food, but considering the current state of down time, I have to take advantage, tame the stomach, and write on….about food. I’ve always wanted to shoot…

LET GO AND…LET YOUR HUSBAND DRESS YOU.

How many of you would trust your husbands or significant others to shop for you? Coco and I have been together for 17 years, and we’ve had our fair share of questionable gifts, left field gifts, inappropriate gifts, and downright tacky gifts (mostly from him end). I do have to say though, the longer we’re…

WHY I’LL NEVER STOP WEARING POLKA DOTS

It looks like I have polka dots on the brain, because based on some recent Instagram posts, I have polka dot crazy! I keep gravitating to spotted outfits or certain pieces in my closet because it’s such a fun pattern and also easy to mix and match! Or in this case, wear those dots from…
