#StyleHustle | Uniform Dressing

Much like Jena Lyons and my Uncle Karl, I am a huge fan of uniform dressing. It is how I manage to look effortlessly put together 90% of the time and has been a part of my life since I slipped into a plaid skirt and saddle oxfords in kindergarten. Catholic school uniforms aside, developing […]

beyonce's lemonade

Vibes | Lemonade

I have no desire to read, or write, another think piece on Beyonce’s Lemonade. I do not want to analyze the imagery to draw parallels between her outfits and African gods. I will not engage in conversations trying to determine who “Becky with the good hair is” or whether or not Becky is a racial […]

What to Wear | Show Some Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops are another one of my love/hate pieces, like jumpsuits. On one hand, to quote The Sequinist, “Shoulders lie. Regularly,” in a good way. No matter what Father Time does to the rest of you, your shoulders tend to stay toned, smooth, and youthful, and off the shoulder tops make them the […]

5 ways to feel happier now

#MonthlyMotivation | Come On Get Happy

Everyone wants to be happy but most of us don’t think about our happiness in the right way. We tend to make our happiness something we’ll have when, we get the boyfriend, we make more money, we take the vacation, and so forth. We don’t look at happiness as something we can have now, today, […]

#StyleHustle | Running in Heels

Well not literally running because that would be a bit excessive.  I have always believed that heels are the red lipstick of your shoe wardrobe. A great pair of heels will take your look from day to night in under 30 seconds, easily confuses people into believing  you are chic and stylish, and instantly take your […]

Out of the handful of young women that I follow who do manage to serve up style and substance, Iman of Manigazer happens to serve up inspiration that I aspire to. Her effortless, Parisian girl […]

Travel | Austin TX

All I do is work, work, work, work, work, even when I’m traveling. Thankfully, my work allows for cool trips like the one I took to Austin last week for SXSW. While our hotel was a lot further away from the action than expected, spending the weekend hustling between events, appointments, and tacos in one […]

What to Wear | The Bigger The Hoop

Hoop earrings have been a jewelry box mainstay since the first fly girl had a pair made, most likely in Egypt. When it comes to these classic accessories that are as relevant now as they were during the disco era , I say the bigger the better. Sure, some unenlightened peon will think you’re “trashy”, […]

Vibes | Bosco x Speakerfoxxx Girls in The Yard

As a New Orleans-born, ATL shawty nothing soothes my soul like a mixtape that makes you jump out of your chair in the middle of a morning meeting to rock to the beat. Thankfully, two of ATL’s finest trailblazers and BFFs, BOSCO and Speakerfoxxx, have finally teamed up to bring us just that. Presented by […]

demeler interview

ATWG | Lily Montasser of Demeler

I stumbled upon Demeler as I was absentmindedly flipping through my Bloglovin’ feed one night. Lily Montasser, California born, New York living writer and stylist behind the site, had a way with words and monochrome dressing that was instantly captivating. This Sarah Lawrence grad, who also spent time studying at Parsons, started her career in the […]
