Star Powered Suiting

It has been my professional pleasure and honor (yes indeed!) to work with — the one, the only, stylist to the stars — Zerina Akers on some amazing broadcast and digital projects. Zerina is so talented and professional but also so fun, humble, beautiful, and smart. Hanging out on set with her — even if we had to power through a 14-hour day — was always the best experience. So when she launched her latest Icons of Style collab with Macy’s, I was beyond excited. Kudos to Macy’s for working with these five Black visionaries to move the world of fashion forward. I’m just happy I can play a small part in this amazing, empowering movement. Brava, Zerina!

All the Fall Cozies: Look #3

Is there anything cozier than a quilt? Well, a quilt-patterned jacket comes pretty close. I love how the mixed prints and colors create a striking patchwork design. Maybe it’s my 1960s Greenwich Village childhood, but I’ve always been partial to modern pieces with a retro vibe. This puffer jacket delivers all the feels..and then some.

All the Fall Cozies: Look #2

Coming your way…more of my Fall faves. As in key pieces you can layer your way, wear every day. FYI, this was my first time shooting a post solo with my new tripod and remote. It’s pretty funny, and fun, to be on top of a mountain and posing for pics. Not sure what Bowie thought about the whole thing. He was probably more interested in the chipmunks!

All the Fall Cozies: Look #1

Hi there. I know I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks. The good news? I was busy with 2 pretty juicy freelance projects. The even better news? One down, and one moving along really well. So before Monday morning and a 9am Zoom call roll around, I wanted to get this post written and out to you. Because…it includes some of most favorite Fall finds, from classic keepers to absolute steals. 

Pastel Patrol

Forget the “fashion rule” that says pastels are only for Summer. There’s no easier or better way to lighten your Fall/Winter wardrobe — or your mood — than by adding a dash of these delicate hues. My suggestion? Every now and then switch up the deeper hues that most of us will reach for in the months ahead with a pale blue, pink or lavender. These pretty colors add a nice contrast when paired with always reliable black, too.

Pattern Clash

I don’t know if I’m all about overalls, but I am all about mixing and matching my favorite fall patterns. If that means taking a walk on the wild side, then count me in. Layering on classic houndstooth check and lovable leopard just feels right. It’s my “pattern clash” of choice, and I’d encourage you to give your own version a try.

Simple Dress, Statement Boots

As much as I get a kick out of putting together new outfit combinations, sometimes I just want to keep it minimal…but without sacrificing style. That’s why I gravitated to this simple dress. I’m loving how effortlessly elegant, and flattering, its flowy silhouette is. I stepped up the vibe with these statement boots. Their modern take on the Western trend is on point!

Favorite Fall Fashion Finds

This post is all about a few of my favorite Fall fashion finds. Some were shopped directly from my wardrobe once I finished my seasonal closet changeover, while others are new purchases already in heavy rotation. Like these high-rise cigarette jeans I’ve been wearing with everything. Seriously, I love them so much I have to stop myself from reaching for them every day. Or do I? (Spoiler alert: wearing them as I write this post!)

Leather Weather

Well, hello there. I’m not going to ask if you missed me or my posts, but it’s been awhile. (I missed you!) Not sure what kind of social media funk I was in, but it seems to have lifted with the crisp autumn air that’s finally arrived. Which gave me the perfect reason to pair these amazing black leather jeans (splurge alert!) with a cozy sweater and teddy coat, as well as some covetable accessories. Happy Fall, y’all!

Pattern Play

When I’m not loving all things leopard print, I’m falling pretty hard for deep-hued florals. They still feel fresh and fun with the weather staying closer to summer temps than those of autumn, especially when they take shape in a fabulous, flutter-sleeved midi dress like this. But cooler days are definitely ahead, so I’ve been playing with how to keep these two trendy patterns going, and better yet, going together.
