I have a strong feeling I’m going to be living in midi skirts this spring and summer. This is a really easy and simple version of a midi skirt and bodysuit outfit, done with a print.Read More
Two words. One name. Carrie Bradshaw. This look is definitely inspired by SJP's onscreen character. Carrie has a way of making undeniable sexy and ghetto-fabulous pieces look expensive and sophisticated.Read More
Come through Mr. Sun, come through. How I've missed your love.
It's a calm 70 degrees out today, and I am taking full advantage. This breezy, lightweight shift dress was made for this weather. The silk-like material is perfect for warm days, and you can easily throw on a cardigan or sweater (I would do navy blue in this case). If you're not a fan of floral, try another plant print like trees or leaves. I predict plant and fruit prints to be huge this spring and summer (thanks, Beyonce!).Read More
As much as I love black-on-black, it can get pretty monotonous. One easy way to break up the monotony is by adding a neutral, or a print in a similar color. This is a perfect on-the-go, easy but polished look.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
April showers bring May what? Right. Seems like Mother Nature's got her months mixed up again.
Spring is all about pastels, yet this weather has me reaching for a chunky knit and a whole lot of black. So, pastels or all-black? Yes.Read More
I'm not sure if i'm trying to slay away the snow that's in the forecast for this weekend or what. I'm doing everything I can to bargain with Mother Nature, at this point.
This is one of my favorite dresses. It's extremely versatile, in that it can be worn in every season and for multiple occasions. It can be paired with flats, boots, heels or sandals. It came with a removable tan belt, so you can switch it out with another color, like the black and gold one I added.Read More
I love coordinates. The idea and look of a matching set, or a monotone look, has always been appealing to me. Much like a romper, its an effortless outfit.
However, matching sets can get redundant and expensive. They all come in pretty much the same styles and materials. It can also be difficult to find pieces in the same color and tone for a monotone look.
Here, I'm pairing two separate pieces to create a semi-matching, semi-monotone set.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
Happy International Women's Day!
The sun is out again, so naturally, so is my skin!
Just kidding, it's just a cropped sweater. I'm not even used to this. To be honest, this entire outfit is outside of my norm, but I figured I'd switch it up a bit.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
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
@@Mother Nature really threw us a bone today, y'all. It really feels like Fall out there.@@
Hence the outfit.
If you don't have one (or three) of these basic dresses in your closet, put your phone down, close your laptop, turn off your desktop and go get your life together. Right now.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
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
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
The most amazing thing happened to me yesterday. I was invited to attend the Ciroc Empowered Brunch honoring the mastermind of FashionBombDaily.com, Claire Sulmers (among others), as a guest of Claire!Read More
