Y'all, I've been really obsessed with green lately. And I do mean that in every sense of the word.Read More
"You was in La Marina all summer"
That's not quite the case, but I did finally make it to Loso's favorite NYC hotspot this summer! I've been meaning to hit up Dyckman's infamous beach lounge for a few years, and this summer presented me with the perfect excuse.
Which became the perfect reason to wear this outfit. Duh.Read More
I'm seriously all about ultra-feminine and flirty looks this season. Summer '17 is giving me serious modern-day A Midsummer Night's Dream vibes.
Before I get all Shakespearian on you, let me put it in layman's terms: give me all the whites, ruffles and florals.
I was never a huge fan of floral print (put the torches and pitchforks down), until I figured out the trick to choosing a print that works for me.Read More
Everyone's always showing love to the ever-popular LBD, but when it comes to key wardrobe pieces for the summer, our go-to just doesn't cut it.
With all the boat parties and All-White events (thanks a lot, Puff Daddy) I get invited to in the summer, I'm always on the hunt for the perfect LWD; that's Little White Dress to you.Read More
I have a saying that I pretty much live by. It's my go-to response when people tell me that I seem to be "living the life," but also a reminder to myself.
*cue Kendrick Lamar, Humble*
It isn't a new concept, but in today's era of Social Media and doing what I do, putting it this way really makes the overall message relatable.Read More
I thought I'd do another video-style OOTD and give you guys the one word of advice that saves me from turning it down when I feel like I may be doing too much...Read More
I thought we'd try something different and do this post in video form! If you like this style, make sure you head to my YouTube channel and give it a thumbs up! Feel free to subscribe while you're at it!
I was never a huge fan of a traditional white-collared shirt. Something about it made me feel like I was going on an interview, no matter what I paired it with. As trends have evolved and fashion has gotten more daring, however, I've find new and alternative styles that have shifted my perspective on this classic, wardrobe staple.Read More
The off-the-shoulder trend has pretty much taken over all 4 seasons for the past year or so, and it doesn't seem to be relinquishing control anytime soon. As we continue to [kind of] transition into Spring, I thought it would be helpful to show you one very trendy top styled 3 very chic ways. Although the looks are similar, they each give off a different vibe and can we worn for a different occasion.Read More
"50 inch screen, money green leather sofa..."
That's what I thought of when I walked out with this outfit on.
We often associate green with colder seasons, like Winter and Fall, but it's a great color to help transition your wardrobe and style into the warmer seasons. It is pretty warm in NYC this weekend, but since we aren't out of the clear just yet, I decided to layer this look a bit more.Read More
Hey friend. Can we talk for a minute? There's something I need to tell you.
I've been wearing sneakers.
I know, I know. But I can't help myself! Let me explain....
I've been wanting to get into the sneaker game for the past few years, but never found a pair I truly loved and could actually find. So when I visited the Nike Outlet a few months ago, I picked up one sensible pair and one loud pair and, well, here we are.Read More
At this current moment, the end of one of the busiest and most hectic weekends I've had in a long time, I feel the most blessed and grateful. Not because it's over, but because I was there.
Gearing up for the launch of Rupture Marketing, of which I am a co-founder, I traveled to Washington, D.C. to work with the Embassy to Haiti. After 20 hours of work and packing, 4 hours of driving, 3 rest stops and a 30-minute nap at a service area in Maryland, I arrived and dove into a packed schedule and a busy city. I went straight to work.Read More
By now we should be knee-deep in knee-highs and wrapping ourselves in the thickest knit sweaters mankind has ever known. Instead, it's 80 degrees and I for one, am confused. For lack of a better (less-offensive) term, this Indian summer is not for me. Mother Nature, you're playing games.Read More
Life is all about balance and finding yours. Specifically, work-life balance. We live in the anti-9-to-5 age, but let's just say what that really means. From the moment we wake up in the morning to the minute we close our eyes, we're working. And while setting yourself up to have the best future possible is great, it's also important to live in the moment and not take life so seriously.
Coco Note: Still working on that last part.
I don't know about you, but after an 8-14 hour work day, the last think I want to do is go home just to change my clothes and head out again. Segue into my point, mastering day-to-night styling is a major key.Read More
Oh black trousers, you forgotten child of fashion.
Why do we fail to acknowledge the importance of the one article of the clothing that is the most versatile and basic wardrobe essential? The very simplicity of it that makes us overlook a pair of black trousers is the very reason why it's so necessary. Regardless of your job title or industry, every woman should own the right pair of tailored black pants.
Coco Note: Keyword: tailored. If they didn't fit you quite well but you bought them anyway, we CAN fix that.Read More
I've said it before. I'll say it again. Leopard print is a neutral.
Coco Note: Don't debate me.
As professional women, one of our (many) office struggles is often appropriate work outfits that don't make getting dressed for the office a daunting task. I mean, your wardrobe should not suck the life out of you. Should you have to sacrifice style for status? Absolutely not.Read More
Y'all. Fall is so close I can smell the Chai.
What would a week of work outfits be without a dress? As we move into the autumn season, I'm trying a different style of dress- the shirt dress. Shirt dresses are one of my favorite styles, because they're super easy to dress up or down, and either way, they look extremely sophisticated.Read More
I hope you've all had a fabulous Labor Day weekend filled with lots of love, sunshine and R&R.
Now, let's get to work.
Welcome to the Final Third.Read More
I can't lie to you guys, I'm super excited for fall. Maybe it's because I'm a fall baby, but I always feel like I'm in my prime when the leaves start to fall. Although it's still pretty hot here in NY, I decided I'd channel some fall energy and go for a pre-fall inspired look today.
As a 9-5er (or something like that....who really sticks to those hours these days?), I sometimes struggle with finding outfits for the office that are appropriate but still interesting and really cute. So taking note from my favorite blog for color inspiration, Versicolor Closet, I decided to add some color into my work wardrobe.Read More
It's Jumpsuit Friday again! Jumpsuits, the one-stop-shop of outfits, are great for the weekend prep and taking your work look from day to night.
People always look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I shop at Rainbow- yes, THAT rainbow- but this is PROOF of the gems that you can find there. I truly believe every store has the potential to produce a few good (sometimes great) pieces, and this is one of them.Read More
