Retro Chic in Pleated Emerald Midi Skirt

I've always thought that I was born in the wrong decade. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love today's advance technology and how far we've come in society, but there's definitely a reason why so many decade favorites are making a comeback. My fashion inspiration stems from a variety of places but I've always resonated with the 40s and 50s, not just through their style but also from the culture, romance and simplicity during those times. 
In this look, I've combined some of the details I've currently loving. This rich emerald pleated midi skirt makes a statement on its own with its' elegance and movement. I simply fell head over heels for it and tracked down this skirt in countless stores for over three months, until it finally became available recently. I was definitely relentless to get my hands on this gem. It was a fun twist to style the skirt with the black choker top blending in the influences of the 90s to this look. The finishing touch was definitely the duster coat which completely tied the whole outfit effortlessly and helped streamlined the colors together. It's super light, airy and has the ability or elevate any look simply with it's flattering silhouette. 

Have you ever had a blast from the past with your style?

Black on Black

 It's been quite some time since I've updated the blog! In the past week or so, I recently started a part-time gig as a Personal Stylist so I've been consumed with balancing that on top of my full-time job. Nonetheless, it's been such a great experience so far and I'm learning a lot about fashion and working with different shapes/bodies that I can also utilize in my blog as well.

With this new job added in my day-to-day mix, I definitely feel busier than ever! I usually make an effort to pick out my clothes the evening before I wake up and dress up, but sometimes it doesn't always go as planned. As a back-up option, I revert to my go-to-outfit aka the all black style! You can absolutely never go wrong with black. Classic, timeless, and perfect for almost all occasions. Head to toe black is incredibly chic and slimming, especially a body-hugging material like this top and bottom combo. To add some depth and interest, the top has criss-cross details and for heels I opted for red as a small splash of color. My leopard clutch also adds vibrancy to the overall look. 

What do you think about head to toe black and would you ever sport this look?

Winter White in a Cream Sweater and Metallic Skirt


Although it rarely feels like temperatures ever drop in sunny LA, I still did not want to miss the opportunity to have a winter white look.  This is probably as close as I can get to a completely head to toe white ensemble because dirt is my friend and I am truly a klutz haha.

Little Black Jumpsuit (LBJ)


 I’m a sucker for LBD’s and when there’s absolutely “nothing to wear” in my closet, I can always rely on them as my go-to! However, I think another version has recently stolen my heart - and it’s the LBJ’s - also known as little black jumpsuits.
