25 Brilliant Denim Prints

Hi Bloggers x Readers!
If you’ve followed my blog since the beginning then you may remember that I used to intern for the Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW, right?  With that being said, I am so excited for the Pharrell Williams collection with G-Star Raw. First allow me to say: the quality of denim G-Star produces is beyond amazing especially with a pretty decent price point. I have pieces from 6 years ago that looks brand new.

Any who as many of you may know already Pharrell accepted the role as co-owner of the denim brand in 2016, which was a brilliant idea! He will be releasing 25 pair of unique, bold, colorful, amazing, and creative denim. What I really enjoy about this collaboration with the “Elwood” jean is the prints and patterns are so diverse and can seriously fit just about any lifestyle out there. Expect to see the full collection release globally this week (Feb 16th) online and in select retailers. Enjoy!

14 Valentine's Day Gifts for Her

Hi bloggers x readers!

3 more days until Valentine’s Day and I’ve hand picked 14 amazing gifts for the lucky lady in your life. Of course you can always treat her to a fancy dinner, a few dozen of roses, or a manicure and pedicure (which you can still do!) but let's spice it up a little. I have selected something for everyone such as the fashion foward soccer mom who enjoys counting her steps. Or even the woman who enjoys coffee before preparing her clients taxes and champagne on the weekends after blogging. How about the gorgeous lady who loves to take a good selfie and capture the moment with her loved ones? All these items tell a different story at a different price point for a different woman. Good Luck and happy shopping!

Fear Of God

Hi bloggers x readers!
The more I research, see the products, and learn about the brand “Fear of God” I gain more respect for founder Jerry Lorenzo. Let’s not ignore the fact that every time I visit his website I can catch a mini a praise break to one of my favorite gospel songs. His fifth collection features “For Your Glory” by Tasha Cobbs. Talk about using your platform in a positive way, my goodness! My favorite video thus far is from the fourth collection featuring: “"How Great Is Our God" by Bishop Paul S. Morton”.

I love how “Fear Of God” is more than a brand; it’s something that represents so many cultures and backgrounds across the world looking to achieve a certain look, for a certain person. Jerry mentions that he doesn’t try to reinvent anything that’s already on the market. However, he wants to create everyday pieces to mix and match within your wardrobe. If you aren’t familiar with Jerry Lorenzo, please go check out his website to get an idea of my point of view.

40% off SALE!

Hi bloggers x readers! Happy Monday :)
As many of you know American Apparel will be closing their doors after 20 years! They were sold off in a bankruptcy auction to Canada's Gilman Activewear brand. With that being said, SALE TIME! Currently everything is 40% off and will continue to increase until the doors close for good. I've selected my top 10 pieces that are super functional and great transitional pieces.

Industry Monday's

Hi bloggers x readers, Happy Monday!

First Industry Monday of 2k17 so I had to make it spicy, flirty, and fun. This outfit can be worn during the day in a relaxed work environment or out at night by tossing on a cute pair of thigh high boots! I love how feminine and edgy Rihanna's Puma collection is. How perfect is this Marc Jacobs choker? Enjoy :)

7 Days A Week

Hi bloggers x readers!
I came across some pretty cool quality crewnecks attached with a hefty price point. I love the concept that Italian designer, Alberta Ferretti created with a story called "Rainbow Week" which are wool cashmere sweaters for each day of the week. This series is from her Fall Winter 2017 collection and actually the designers first capsule collection. Who cares about a $495 price point? Right? A few have already sold out via pre-orders! I wish I would have thought about creating this concept, pricey or not, it’s super catchy and amazing when styled the right way! I’ll be looking for Rihanna or one of the Kardashian sisters in one of these pieces very soon.  Enjoy :)
