I've probably said this before, but Sunday is definitely my favorite day of the week. Growing up, every Sunday we got dressed in our best outfits and headed to church, followed by lunch or dinner at a restaurant. Not a thing has changed, except maybe the restaurants.Read More
Spring has finally sprung and it's time for tunics. There are many mornings where I find myself late to work or unwilling to iron, and I call these my tunic days. I love tunics because they are effortlessly chic. They come in great prints and fabrics and are usually on-stop-shop pieces, like rompers and jumpsuits, meaning a complete outfit only missing accessories!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
Well Mr. Groundhog, it seems you were right.
It's beginning to feel a lot like springtime. At least this weekend, it is. Although it is still winter and it's going to be cooler later this month, I'm feeing the spring vibes.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
Blue is for you.
A crop top and a high-waist pant are always a great combination, regardless of the season. You can take a summer style and make it winter-appropriate just by changing the fabric and color/pattern.Read More
Mondays have always had a bad reputation of being the worst day of the week. I get it- the weekend is over, the work-week begins, farewell to the fun. What if I told you there was one simple secret to beating the Monday blues?Read More
There are many myths and misconceptions when it comes to personal style. While the majority of these myths are derived from old fashion laws, magazines or even icons, many are self-imposed. Here are just a few ways you can find your personal style, without limiting yourself!Read More
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
Happy belated Turkey Day y’all!
The tryptophan is so real guys, I was so weak after Thanksgiving I couldn’t even muster up the energy (or will) to write up this post! But I’m here now!
For holidays or family events where I know i’ll be eating up lots of delicious food, I like to go for a comfortable, usually knit or cotton, dress. Dresses give you room to breathe and fill up on seconds without that awkward moment of unbuttoning that top button or having to loosen your belt a notch or 4.Read More
