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
After a less-than-productive start to this week, the only thing to do is to BOSS UP on Tuesday. I don't know about you, but dressing the part always helps me kick things into motion.Read More
All black and a pop of pastel, where have we seen this before? Yes, I know: Real original, Coco.
I'm a firm believer that one of the basic rules of thumb when it comes to slaying consistently is keeping it simple. I like working with a simple color palette or simple textures and finding ways to make them pop.Read More
This 70+ degree weather has me literally jumping for joy.
Could it be the end of dry skin, eskimo gear and layering? I'm not sure what Mother Nature has up her sleeve for the next few weeks, but i'm enjoying what she's dishing out now. Including the fact that I don't need a jacket today.
Damn Delfine, Back at it Again with the White Chucks!
Yepp, I have a feeling these are going to get a lot of wear this season!Read More
There are those days when a thick-slim girl just feels skinny. And when you feel skinny, you feel unstoppable.
Coco Note: If you think skinny, you just might become it. Mind over matter.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending a D'usse event. I haven't had D'usse since the last time I D'usse'd a little too much *cough* NYE 2012 *cough*, but I do love the brand and the product.
I would never promote leggings as pants, but I was feeling skinny last night, so you'll have to excuse me.Read More
Day 25?! Wait. How did we get here?
This is a look inspired by Olivia's Prada houndstooth coat in Episode 9 of Season 4, Where the Sun Don't Shine.
Although this is a very simple look, it definitely makes a statement. As I mentioned before, houndstooth is a classic print and a wardrobe staple. It is, in my opinion, the most sophisticated print. When working with classic prints, you want to stick to classic silhouettes. I love that this particular coat features a crew neck collar.Read More
The only thing worse than a Monday is a staff meeting.
Nonetheless, we show up and WE show out. Staff meetings are the perfect time to pull out the work clothes you've been saving for a day you actually have to be dressed appropriately. You don't want to be the one in jeans, but you also don't want to show up in a full suit, looking like you tried way too hard.Read More
We took a momentary pause, but we're back now. I took a quick break to live a little, relax and feel the love on Valentine's Day.
I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day and were surrounded by love! In case I forgot to tell you, I love you like cooked food!
Coco Note: And that's a lot.Read More
On the 13th day, there was a slay.
Funny thing about me, I love a good theme. Give me a theme and I will go as hard as possible.
I was invited to a Gatsby-themed 30th birthday party this weekend. Being that The Great Gatsby is my favorite book, it was only right that I do it big for the G-man.Read More
I've never been happier to see Thursday. I don't know about you, but I stand with Liv. Today, I'm repping my set.Read More
As much as some of us might hate to admit it, February truly is the month of love. I had the honor of serving as lector and emcee at a wedding today, and the theme was cream and gold.
Cream and gold is one of my favorite color combinations because it has such a regal and wealthy appeal.
Coco Note: And you know I love looking like wealth.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.
@@"How Sway," you ask? Well, once again I've got the answers.@@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.
@@Coco Notes: Sundays are for slaying.@@Read More
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.@@
@@Black and white will forever be classic. but darling, welcome to The New Classic.@@
Coco Note: No Iggy Azealia.
Get into this less-than-$100 slay.Read More
Mother Nature is back with a vengeance. It. Is. Cold.
I don't know about you, but when I hear cold weather I think of onions.
Okay, so what I really mean is, I think of layers. It seems like labels aren't putting out warm fabrics for afforable prices, and it's not too often that you find cashmere on clearance. So during the winter months, I always start of my look with basics: a long-sleeved shirt and a pair of leggings.Read More
Yesterday was one of my favorite holidays, Easter Sunday! Ever year since I was born I've worn a brand new outfit on Easter Sunday. The new outfit, for me, symbolizes a fresh start. New clothes to wear in our new lives. Just like at our baptism, when we're given new clothes to wear.
Coco Note: I mean, would you wear dirty clothes after you took a shower?Read More
WE MADE IT TO 100!!! Watch in HD!
"I just want to thank God..." Kidding! lol No but really, thank God for all the people who think little 'ole me is interesting :)

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
