I don’t know if you guys have noticed but it’s July…JULY! 2019 has been moving quickly and as we all know time waits for no one, so with six months left to the year it’s definitely a great time to reset and refocus on your goals. I got the idea to write this post after listening to Myleik Teele’s (@myleik on Instagram) podcast about refreshing your hustle this summer. If you don’t know who Myleik is (I don’t know where you’ve been) she is the founder of Curl Box (@curlbox on Instagram) and an amazing business woman. I started listening to her podcast last year after a friend recommended it to me and I’ve found it useful as well as inspiring.
Spring is finally here in NYC! The weather is breaking and the layers are slowly coming off. I haven’t been inspired for a while but I’ve been reading my magazines again and I’m super excited about the new season. I’m sure you guys already know by now that suits are trending for SS19, this wardrobe classic has been all over the runways and on street style stars everywhere. From pastels, to brights, to neutrals the power suit is here to stay, at least in my opinion.
Spring is almost here and I don’t know about you guys but I’m over winter and ready for the new season! I’m also in the process of rebuilding my wardrobe so I’ve been keeping an eye out for things that I think will compliment not only my personal style but my lifestyle as well. This blog post isn’t going to be super long its just a mini wishlist of some of the items that I’m currently interested in, a few are designer which I like to think about before spending my coins. you might find something you like for yourself and if you do everything is linked so happy shopping!
When it comes to getting dressed wearing all black is one of my favorite things to do the color looks good on everyone and it makes you look effortlessly put together even if you really took two hours to get dressed. Like most New Yorkers I love a good all black ensemble but some people may find it boring and feel like they can’t express their personal style but I disagree. Here are three easy ways to wear all black.
Over the past couple of years the topic of diversity and inclusion across all industries has been at the forefront of so many important conversations. When I chose to pursue a career in fashion I was aware that the presence of people who look like me wasn’t felt and definitely not seen, whether it was on runways or at the offices of magazines people of color have not been represented the way we should. I wanted to be part of the change I wished to see in the fashion world I was just as well versed in fashion history (if not more) than my caucasian peers, my passion burned hotter than any flame, and creativity ran through my veins so why wouldn’t I want to have a career doing what I love while representing my people? Recently celebrity stylist Law Roach (@luxurylaw on Instagram) posted a picture of the Essence magazine cover featuring Kelis and in his caption he spoke about the fact that this was only the second time in his career that he worked with an all black team.
