Who says you can't wear sandals in the rain? Not I, said the cat. This is my ideal Friday workday outfit. Essentially, a leather suit and badass shoes.Read More
t's Monday, and surprisingly, i'm still managing to be on Cloud 9 today.
When I feel like I need to seize the day, I tend to go for black. @@When I feel like I need to conquer the day, I go for black leather.@@ This black leather skirt is probably my favorite and most-worn thrift store find. It's also my oldest, from my very first thrifting experience!Read More
Sometimes all a well put-together outfit requires is sticking to the basics. In this case, a black-and-white color palette and a universal silhouette.Read More
You know those summer days where you're really not in the mood to put a whole outfit together and a romper just doesn't seem appealing? You know how you go straight for that super comfortable AND cute maxi dress that seems to work every time?
Yea, it's one of those days. Except it's February.
Yesterday I was asked if it would be appropriate to wear a maxi dress in the pseudo-spring we're currently experiencing. Why can't we rock our simple and sexy maxi dresses in the winter? @@Who makes the rules around here? ::NEWS FLASH:: You do.@@ Wear that maxi, girl.Read More
Rain, rain, go away. Don't come back, we need to slay!
Normally I'd say I hate rainy days, but today, not so much. I've decided to use the rain as an accessory.

Somebody said this look was basic.
I know what you're thinking, how dare they, right? Relax, that's not what they meant! Given the new stigma against the word "basic," when discussing essential wardrobe pieces, I propose we make a change! I prefer "staple," "necessity," or, my personal favorite, "basis."
Your "basic" clothing items are the basis of your wardrobe. In this look, I combined a few basic pieces to create an easy, winter look.Read More
When they said beauty is pain, they really weren't lying.
I've been battling the worst toothache for the past few days and it's killing me. Half of my face is swollen, and every word seems to now have an "S" at the end.
Nonetheless, slay we must.

It's Throwback Thursday and we're throwing it back to Sunday! It's no secret that Sunday is my favorite day of the week. @@It is the day of the Lord, and this is the slay the Lord has made.@@

As much as I hate to admit it, I have been waiting for the “right time” to wear this jacket for months! I received this Alexander Wang x H&M Scuba Look top as a birthday gift from my younger brother—shoutout to the bro gawd!—back in November, and had yet to wear it, until this past weekend!
My friend and designer of Fide by Mel D. was participating in the Pink Carpet Affair fashion show in Harlem, NY, and as PR for the line, I was invited to attend and be backstage! It was also one of the coldest days ever, so I decided that it would be the perfect chance to debut the sweater.
Coco Note: Does it not look like the Michelin Man meets waist trainer?! I look like Popeye y’all.Read More
Let's face it. We all want to look like the celebrities, but are we willing to pay celebrity money? Uhh, nah.
It's a good thing that where there's a will, there's a copy!
An inspired piece or look, if you will.
This look was inspired by one of my favorite Coco Gawdesses, Gabrielle Union.Read More
