I am a believer in the mixing of patterns, it is my gospel. Do it right and I shall praise you. Misstep and it’s back to the closet for you. Try a polka dot as your base, it’s usually kept simple with two colors and when you get adventurous add a pattern that looks like it was meant for your grandmother’s pocketbook. Go forth and flourish!

For the longest time I would look at girls wearing maxi dresses with a longing and a jealousy because I had yet to find one that worked for me. Enter in faithful H&M where I snagged this thick, jersey maxi a couple months ago. It hugs the curves without being too clingy and is short enough for me! Because at 5’4 most long dresses tend to be overwhelming. I must go back and get 5 more. Hahaha. These sandals, which you saw here on instagram, were a quick come up from the go to spot — Forever 21. Head over get yourself some foot jewelry too.

Black and white is set to be a spring staple; seen on many a runway and donned by more than a few celebs I knew I had to scoop up these haute pants when I first saw them. The only thing that made them better was the price! Who can beat a $7 pant?! Call me Queen of Bargains, I’ll wear the title proudly.

I CHOPPED MY CROP!! I will say I feel great, my goal was to grow my hair waist length but realized I was striving for a goal that I truly didn’t want. I love my hair short and will probably keep it this way for a while.
don’t worry I won’t be wearing my hair straight, it is currently curly and I will take pictures soon!

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago at church and was asked by some readers to showcase it on the blog (s/o to Karen & Kandis, thanks for reading girls!). I’m a huge fan of all white ensembles, they look clean, sleek, and give an heir of polish that screams class. Fur on anything is always win, I picked this one up at Urban Outfitters for a whopping $10. *tootsie roll*
A deal and fur, what could be better?

I’m going to be honest I love a great sweater and I often find myself wanting to wear them especially after all kinds of dope inspirational images pop up on Pinterest but truth is it’s a tad difficult to do when you’re a top heavy girl. For fear of not wanting to look like I’m going to bust or just like my chest is a part of my chin, I steer clear. Yet I still long for a chunky knit on these cold dreary days, above are a few I’d pick for my closet.
November 15 is almost here! For those of you that haven’t been able to get a glimpse of what the collection is promising, I’ve chosen a few of the pieces I think really sum up this collaboration. With true timeless, avant garde style that is Margiela, I can honestly say that he has created some things for the Brand that will outlast simple trends.
And for the Ladies?
What are some of your favorites from the H&M + Maison Martin Margiela collaboration?
I was beginning to wonder when the crisp Autumn weather would truly make its arrival, until this morning that is. Woke up with a slight chill and just enough sun to make me feel like I could leave the house without a jacket. Ha! Too bad I wasn’t brave enough to try that one out.

My cold weather wardrobe is beginning to scream New York City, as its main component is black, but I love how chic the color is and the way each piece distinctly characterizes itself. I promise not to bore you with the color. Staying flyy includes the element of surprise
