Killing the StreetStyle: Grandma Edition

  Hey darlings!

Yesterday, I was such a BEAUTIFUL day in the city – what spring is really about it! It’s been such a longggg winter that I was beginning to believe that we might not see the beauty of spring; I’m sure many of you can agree as well. There was a slight breeze in the midst of the sunny day, so I couldn’t get too excited and walk out the house half naked as I saw many people did! But who could blame them? We’re all desperate for some warm change in the weather. Needless to say, I’m still in my tomboyish mood but I still wanted to keep it chic. Therefore, I decided to wear these rugged-knee denim rolled up to give me a James Dean look and pair it up with this beautiful blouse that belonged to my late grandmother who passed away last July. You know, I’m not sure if grieving ever gets better because when I begin to think about all the deaths in my family, I just tear up. I miss my grandmother so much – I miss her feistiness, sass, love, and of course, her amazing cooking. I hope she’s proud of the woman that I’ve become, looking down from heaven. And I hope to honor her with this take in wearing her blouse. Be inspired 😉 Miss you Grandma! Xoxo

When Cool Meets Chic: #ThenewBR Fashion Event

 

Hey darlings,

Last week I attended the Grand Opening of the new Banana Republic Flagship Store in the Flatiron district which was super amazing being hosted by designer Marissa Webb, Jamie Chung, and Christene Barberich! It was a night full of fun, fashion, and good people – it was good time! Of course, some of the who’s who in the fashion world was there so it was great meeting other dope people such as different creative directors, bloggers, stylists, models, and even those who lived in the neighborhood.  I love meeting new people – oddly enough because I used to be extremely shy and still am to some degree (I know you don’t believe me smh)! But, the highlight of the night for me was meeting and having fun with Marissa Webb AND Jamie Chung! Seriously what is happening in my life?! To those who don’t know, designer Marissa Webb is the NEW creative director for the Banana Republic brand in which the new collection, the #newBR, is now available! Of course, I LOVE the new collection AND Marissa Webb! This spring you can expect an array of blues for both the men and women – their signature cobalt blue will surely grab your attention! Black and white will never get old nor will a crisp tailored look from Banana Republic. Honestly, this cool meets chic collection will be a must in your Spring wardrobe. Seriously. But, check take a look through my eyes on such a glamorous evening and be sure to add some pieces to your closet from Banana Republic’s new collection!
