So with fall around the corner…ok who am I kidding it’s here in NYC. It’s time to transition from summer gear to fall/winter gear and that means heats, beanies, and sunglasses. Sunglasses you ask. Aren’t those a summer item? No silly they aren’t. According to eye doctors everrrywhere you should wear sunnies year round to protect your eyes from sunburn (yea that’s right) and damage from the suns rays. And sunglasses are great with all the fall hat trends, I mean what better way to create some mystery than sliding on some shades. So I took to the internet in search of some great styles and came across Salt City Optics. They offer such a wide range of style on prescription sunglass it was hard to choose just ONE! Plus hello! Iris Apfel is on the landing page rocking some Kate Spade sunnies looking all fly, and I idolize that woman and her sense of style!
This fall I’m feeling some wide brim hats like this awesome one from Forever 21 (yea its men’s and so?) and cause I like the Indiana Jones look. And nothing goes better with the hat than a pair of Electric Av1 aviators from Salt City Optics. I feel like it gives me the right combo of rugged urban chic ya dig? Of course I’d love to mix it up with some bold sunglasses like these Tom Dodoma ones, in sea glass champagne (cause I like to be bold duh!) if I’m going for the wild west meets breakfast at Tiffany’s look that day. And to round it out with that boho look id probably layer it up with the malachite convertible necklace and the pave long bar necklace from Chloe+Isabel.
Then of course as it gets colder, because why stop at 30 Mother Nature, beanies and sunnies are another great combo. Beanies are fashionable and functional; they help keep that noggin of yours warm, so I’d go with something like this one from Nasty Gal. And to kick it up a notch I’d pick these Derek Lam Felix sunglasses in blue cause they’re haute and different. I’m loving the blue gradient into the stripes and that they are semi opaque, so its s subtle statement (course the nudes are pretty kickass too). And these Kate Spade Della’s would also be good for that classic cat eye beanie look. I like picking eyewear that’s bold and different, kinda like this Coastline Necklace from Chloe+Isabel. Plus Beanies are great casual items so really you could mix up and wear the aviators as well for a simpler look. And a basic beanie provides the canvas on which I decorate. (waaaaaaaaaaaay to much art school).
But these are some of my ideas, and we all know I go to the beat of a different drummer. Overall your sunglasses are the gate keepers to your eyes, which they say are the windows to your soul. So what does your gate say?
I’m sure at one point we’ve all gotten a mani, heard about jam berry or tried to do DIY nail art. But the problem is either time, ideas, or stuck with whatever is in stock. So the other week I was on a plane flying home to Arizona and was reading the AA magazine when I came across this article about nail art and this app call Nail Snaps. Nail snaps allows you to take an image and have it printed onto adhesives for your nails. Way frickn cool! So all you do is download the app, pick a design, size and adjust it and viola new nail art. The cool thing is that you can be unique and do what YOU like versus having to pick from pre selected designs (BORING!).
So check out the page, download the app and get on your way to creating custom nail art. I’m going to order and let you guys know how it all turns out! And if you join check me out!
Sunday I had brunch with some friends who are moving to LA at this spot called Maya. The place is listed as modern Mexican and Tequileria that offers small plates and good food. BUT they also offer a true unlimited brunch, so for $43 you can get two hours of all you can eat and drink. BAM! My fatass was happy to know this and planned to go in (once I sat down of course).
We had everything from empanadas, lamb tacos, chicken enchiladas, salad, to caramel French toast with Nutella and crema fresca. The coffee is great and I heard the drinks were as well. My only real issue was the noise level, obviously after you have enough semi drunk people the music goes up and then of course so does the noise. Overall 4 out of 5 forks.
Wow…Friday again and here I am working late. Working on this post just for you guys, since I committed to making this happen. So short and sweet. So as I look at other bloggers and influencers I notice that they always have something new on. But if you like me and don’t get gifted with stuff to promote, what do YOU do? You wear wtf the is in the closet, am I right? #struggleisrealwhenyoubuyyourownstuff
Hey there fashionfeeders! Its been a hot minute since I’ve posted and I apologize for that but life has a way of getting kinda cray. Like I got promoted to email manager, finished school (woot woot mofo’s) and I’ve been trying to catch up on 5 years of needed relaxation. So I really am hoping to commit to making a weekly post, say Fridays. Sooooooooooo we shall see J
So today I was like I want a mani/pedi need some loose jeans so I can get my calves rubbed…..and then I realized all my loose jeans are dirty. So I was like these floral jeans should work. Now what to put on top…..STRIPES snitches! Hahahhahahaha fashion people are always like mix prints blah blah blah. Well I am and I expect you to dig it. (j/k)
Course I got me Chloe+Isabel jewelry on (enter shameless self promotion)
And rocking my new kicks that my man picked out. Metallic are the future!
Peep the deets
Jeans Venus (waaaaaaaay old they are the color skinny denim)
Also I want people to see that you don’t always have to go buy new stuff, you can reuse old styles…cue the 99% plus I watched an epic film called The True Cost. Check it and be amazed and what goes into making your clothes.
Thanks as always for reading and signing up to get these. I know you get mad stuff so I want to be relevant and stuff so always feel free to holla at cha gurl and give some feedback!
