Beneath Your Beautiful Campaign

I had the opportunity to work as Model Coordinator at my good friend, Joy Ubani’s event—the Beneath Your Beautiful campaign. I love this event because it seeks to empower self-esteem through fashion. Which is exactly what I believe fashion does, if you let YOUR beautiful shine through!  Check it out:

Now Loving: Faux Fur Jackets.

A little while ago, I talked about the big shopping spree I’m going on soon for some new cold-er weather clothes. I started a series called “Now Loving,” which is shopping list. I’ve been seeing a lot of faux fur jackets—and I’m absolutely loving them!

Don Benjamin.

Who is that, you might ask? That’s  Don Benjamin of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 and newly, an entrepreneur! He just started a new t-shirt line, so I went to the t-shirt release event at this really cute boutique. The t-shirts were available, there was a DJ, there was candy, a ton of fabulous clothing, and Don and fellow model Marvin took pictures with fans!

Finds of the week.

I consider clothing to be pieces of art we just happen to wear. When I come across really fascinating clothes, I can’t help but add them to the wish list in my head. Do you do that too? Here are some great finds from this week, from some of my favorite places to shop:

1. ASOS

bzr-silver-sweatshirt

I’m digging this metallic sweater by BZR. I’m seeing a fabulous rainy day in this sweater.

2. Forever 21

globe-trotter-kimono

 

There’s something about a sheer kimono in this print that’s so precious. Love it!

3. Pepper Mayo Boutique

 

pepper-mayo-boutique

 

I just recently found out about Pepper Mayo and saw this Digital Daze dress. This print is crazy and fantastic!

4. Nordstrom BP.

faux-leather-jacket

 

BP. is close to my heart, so I’m always checking out new arrivals. I always feel like (faux) leather jackets are too tough-looking but this one by JOLT is still cute and feminine.

5. Urban Outfitters

truly-madly-deeply-cropped-top

 

 

I’m Truly Madly Deeply in love with this cropped halter top.

Which of these pieces would you add to your wardrobe?

All printed up.

It’s about time to take some more fashion risks. Classic jeans are a must and we can’t forget our go-to black pants, but what about some other options? Add printed bottoms to a favorite outfit to give it a new twist:

lepoard-print-harem-pants

floral-printed-leggings

asos-printed-pants

lavender-galaxy-printed-leggings

girls-of-fifth-printed-pants

 

 

 

 

Would you werk this trend? Which print is your favorite?

Sealion.

Designer Katie Chick werked it out at the FIDM Debut Runway show last spring. I was able to attend the show and this was one of the most striking and cool collections, from the music, Fiest‘s Sealion—to the background, and of course, the clothing.

(Was she way ahead of the trend with the Mykonos-inspired collection, or what?) I would love to wear that crop top outfit.

All star.

 

Few shoes are as classic as Converse Chuck Taylor’s. I’ve been wearing them since I was five years old. I have the low style too but It’s all about the  high tops. I don’t know if it’s just in my head but my white high tops actually make me feel taller.  Anyway, these shoes are great because you can wear them with pretty much anything. Here’s the world from the view of a high top shoe:

I got a new rug and I absolutely love it, so do my Chuck Taylor’s.

Sleep all day.

Sleep is good. Relaxation and cute jamies. Who wouldn’t want to sleep all the time? Ok, ok we can’t do that. But, we can wear pajamas all the time. This might just be the best trend ever:

These are two of my favorite ways to wear the pajama trend, the onesie and the set:
