Front Tie Skater Dress

Rebel Front Tie Skater Dress c/o Shop Tobi

Check out more Tobi stuff here: dresses, rompers, crop tops

A skater dress is suitable for just about any shape. From curvy to boy-shape to athletic, this style usually works well.  This skater dress is hands down my favorite so far. I love how it has an asymmetric hem in the front which is good cause it doesn’t make it too short. Tobi really has some great pieces for good prices. The front tie to this dress with an open front design that flashes just enough skin is oh-so-good for summer. (more…)

Trend Alert: 5 Must-Have Summer Mini Bags

/ June 21, 2016


Mini and micro handbags, despite their size, are one of the biggest trends this summer. Whether it’s the art of minimalism we’re trying to achieve by toting around fewer items, or we’re secretly stashing our full size purses in the car so we can shop without shoulder pain, I’m glad the popularity of these bags has caught on.

Fashioners’ staff agrees that “pretty tiny bags” are the accessory to have this summer. And when high-fashion icons like Kenzo, Chanel, and Ferragamo debuted designs of their own during the SS 2016 runway shows, it was only a matter of time before the bitty bags made their way into our closets and our hearts. Below you’ll find 5 of my favorite mini purses to get you excited about trying one of the hottest trends of the year. (top image via) (more…)

Sweet Intentions Sheath Dress c/o Shop Tobi

If there is nothing else alluring about a one piece but the neckline, then honey, you’re pretty much all set. A sheath dress can go either way – formal and professional or instantly sexy when it’s designed with a deep plunge. I was amused when I received my orchid colored dress from Shop Tobi because it stood out in the most soft glam way. (more…)

Real Girl in a Beauty World with Brittany

/ June 15, 2016


I met Brittany Kalu a few years ago in a way that’s become the norm and even favorable these days: good ol’ social media. I believe it was before the Instagram and Snapchat days – right around the time when Twitter was the best thing #boomin. Leaving Baltimore to take on the Big Apple (NYC), Brittany attended college and also went on to climb the ladder in some pretty cool retail stores like RetroSuperFuture Eyewear and most recently Totokaelo. It wasn’t until two years ago that I got to meet her in person at Fashion Week, and of course we hit it off naturally. Speaking of naturally, Brittany prefers beauty that way, and I couldnt agree more. We both had great conversation on taking good care of your skin with plenty of water intake, some good products, and keeping it simple – just how she likes it. As you can see, she is a natural beauty herself and was a treat to shoot. She was a pure natural in front of the camera. Yup, I just through that word out there again. (more…)

Get the Look: Baltimore Street Style at Hon Fest

/ June 14, 2016


I spotted Kristian at Hon Fest on Sunday on a whim. I don’t know if it was her striking, whimsical trousers, her two-tone round specs, or that amazing white and gold belt that caught my attention. Either way, I wasn’t there to look for style on the streets but her whole entire ensemble gave me life, luckily I had my camera on me, so it was a must that I stopped her to capture this American Woman transported straight from the 70s vibe. Penny Lane anyone? (more…)

Cold Shoulders with Shop Tobi

Flaring Out Open Back Top c/o of Tobi

I’m always extra geeked when I find out about a shopping site that offers a chock full of stylish clothes. Recently, I was sent some pieces from Shop Tobi (based in California) and I swear I spent a good hour browsing all the goodness from pretty dresses to trendy tops. For these scorching hot days, I’ve been reaching for lightweight, flowy tops as my go to lately. (more…)
