Topshop is right on track with getting Ms. Bosworth to be the face and hottie behind their Festival Collection. I mean, the beautiful actress has been doing the absolute best in the last few festival seasons, especially at Coachella, in showing her cool and chic laid back style. I always look for Kate when the music festival comes around. I’m excited about this Topshop Festival Collection and think it couldn’t have come at a better time. I especially love this 1995 crop tee. It seriously makes me think of the memories from that year. Like the music, the style and who I “thought” I was as a teenager lol.
Here are few things that represent the year of 1995.
- Yahoo! was formed.
- Michael Jordan returned to basketball.
- DVDs are announced.
- Million Man March
- Ebay was founded.
- OJ Simpson found innocent.
- Pierce Brosnan debuts as agent 007 in “Goldeneye” James Bond.
- Dr. Bernard A. Harris, Jr. makes history as the first black American astronaut to walk in space.
- Alanis Morrisette “You Oughta Know” hit the top charts.
- TLC’s “Waterfalls” debuted as their top selling single.
- Toy Story first ever wholly computer generated film.
- American Rockband Grateful Dead announce break up.
- Windows 95 released by Microsoft.
- I was addicted to Madtv and In The House.
Whew! I just went down memory lane for a second but I thank TopShop and Kate Bosworth for putting out such a cute crop top tee which I think can be dressed up, down, or in between. LOVE.IT. (image via)
Talk to you soon lovelies!

I’m really starting to love Julia’s blog Gal Meets Glam. I think she is so adorable. One of her recent posts was titled “Favorite Dress” and it prompted me to pull out my most worshipped and worn dress for a
cold pretty Spring day. This dress encompasses so many elements that I absolutely love, which has made it very hard to be replaced. From the convenient pockets, to the tropical print to the silky texture…I am so in love with my Yumi Kim dress. I’m starting to realize blue is one of my most favorite colors. I feel so poised in this color and I think it looks great on most skin tones. The shades of blue is endless but I have to say the more vibrant blues really gets me going.
Thanks for stopping by lovelies!
This weekend was pretty much filled with street style inspiration. I get a kick out of style godesses who wear their clothes in the most fearless way. Taking from a site whose prices are simply unbeatable, The Ultimate Outlet, I found great tops and jackets that are on trend and atm friendly – so these looks came together for a reduction of the original prices. Cha-ching! Mo’ money in your pocket. Who remembers the Spiegel catalog? I remember my mom would get them in the mail and I would flip through the pages gushing over the beautiful models and their classic outfits. I was recently reminded of their cute pieces when I came across the site. I found this super cute color block blazer for a great price and some other things I may be getting soon. I am digging all three of these looks and feel they all represent woman who love to be fly, chic, and dashingly casual. What’s your favorite look?

I’m so happy it’s Friday. Am I the only one who feels like this week has moved like a turtle? Sheeshh. Any who, I’m really looking forward to this weekend for the simple fact that it’s Mother’s day. I’ll be spending Sunday with the fam and then maybe catch a movie. I really want to see The Great Gatsby ( I recently watched the original for the first time a few weeks ago before I knew they were coming out with a remake)…what a coincendence! So i’m looking forward to Leo DeCaprio playing the sexy Robert Redford in the new one. I also wanted to mention this rad Diamond Supply Co hat my friend bought me from Pure Surf Board Shop in Annapolis. I friggin love it for 3 reasons: The mint color and bright orange lettering, The word LIFE written on it, and most of all it’s perfect for when I’m having a bad hair day and want to throw on a cute statement snapback. Need I say more?
Have a fantastic weekend lovelies!!
Recently, I had a taste for a salmon or seafood dish and quickly made up my mind that I wanted something citrus based with some sort of subtle tangy flavor. As I googled recipes, I came across this Citrus Baked Salmon with reviews that assured me it would be a hit. I accompanied the main dish with homemade mac n cheese, and sauteed spinach (not shown) and it easily fulfilled my greedy appetite. Although, the recipe called for layering oranges and lemons under the salmon fillet, I also squeezed the juices on top and added more herbs (lemon pepper herbs from Willams Sonoma, oregano, and salt & pepper) and it was pretty good. I would have preferred it to be a bit more flavorful and tangy but it still served a great, fresh taste. Oh yea, and in the middle of my cooking spree, my oven decided to go out on me, so i had to finish the meal at one of my besties house. Luckily, he lives literally less than a minute from me so I was saved. Talk about stressed out not knowing if this food could have been wasted! Grrrrr…but it all worked out. Yay! Next time, I will add more seasonings and maybe a glaze for my next salmon dish.
It’s something about a simple statement sandal. Oh yes, simplicity can make a statement too. It can also be the wow factor in your ensemble if you choose it to be. Take these lovely, and might I add, comfortable ankle strap sandals that are an easy try on while shopping for the perfect style and an easy throw on (once bought) for the farmer’s market, date night, and running errands. I especially love when they are two tone which means you can have more fun with your wardrobe when pairing them with maxi dresses, rompers, or just a cute pair of cut offs and a comfy tee. Whether there’s a utilitarian style buckle at the ankle, a clear sole or strap, or metallic accents, these babies are sure to stretch out for the long run in your closet. Definitely a great investment piece. I really love these slide ons and the little kitten lucite heel on these. What’s your favorite?

Happy Monday folks! Hope you had a good weekend. I seem to forget how much fun I can have on Cinco De Mayo and yesterday definitely reminded me. I had my fair share of coronas and margaritas before and after I spoke at Baltimore City Community College’s Fashion show reception. It was pretty nerve wracking but I managed to get through it. 18 designers from the design program showed a small collection in the runway show and afterwards I just gave my little tidbits on my advice in the fashion world. With everything I had going on yesterday, my true Libra sign really reigned through as I changed my clothes a total of three times for each occasion. Crazy right? Do you like to change clothes to fit your mood or to feel appropriate for an event? Nowadays, I try to avoid doing this as much. Right before the fashion show, I wore this vintage floral dress (also seen here) with my new Theodora & Callum wedges which I absolutely love! It’s crazy how things work out. I wrote about these shoes in a post like a year or more ago and recently scored them at Nordstrom rack for damn near 90% off. Super Steal! I ridiculously love flirty floral dresses and when it’s vintage, sometimes it’s even better. They seem more charming and original. I mean we have to get our inspiration from somewhere right? Have a great day lovelies! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
