All Black OOTD’s (A few days in review)

So for today’s post I thought that I would bring you some of the outfits I wore this week.  As I’ve said before most everything is old and I re-wear clothes (oh the humanity!).  But because I take care of them they continue to live.  I took the photos on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to show you what my typical outfits look like.  Now because I live in NYC black is the go to option for most everything (see Monday and Wednesday) and let’s face it, it’s easy.  It’s like black is quintessential to being a NY’er. No other city does all black as well as NYC and in a city that is this dirty and grimy black is it. I found a great article that I think sums it up from The Cut.  “We wear black because we’re not tourists here to see a show; because we are, in a sense, with the band. The band is New York, and the color is black.” As they say, all black eurrything….

Friday is all about jeans and my new top from Banana (Yea I treated myself gurl).  Now mind you all week I have rocked my little anorak jacket from Old Navy that I bought like 6 years ago.  Best $5 spent and like all things, take care of your stuff and things will last.

My point is this invest in quality pieces (take your cues from Europeans) and layer in fun throw away pieces that are trendy.  Not only does it make dressing easier but it’s fiscally sound and leaves you more money to go do shit like eating with friends, movies, and the stuff people do.

So here is the run down

All the jewelry is mostly Chloe+Isabel with some personal pieces

Clothing is a mix of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, New Balance and Aldo Shoes because guess what at a certain point you know what brands work with your body type and these are it.

All my photos are taken with my trusty iPhone because guess what I don’t have anyone to take them for me.  But I like to think you , my readers, are ok with that because guess what…it makes me normal like you.  I also don’t filter anything or retouch I want you to see the real me.  Now I want to go on a shopping bender…FML #adulting sucks

OOTD 4/20/16

Well happy 4/20 peeps!  Today’s outfit is brought to you by the crazy weather in NYC.  Today is sunny and nice, nice meaning its above 50 which for many NY’ers means shorts and tanks, sadly my blood beez a bit to thin for that madness.  So I am currently working at Century 21 Stores (peep it here) and they have inspirational quotes all over the office which is great. So today’s motto is “Follow Your Dreams”.   Know what helps with that?  A bold red lip.  I don’t know about you, but I feel invincible when I put my red lips on.  What helps you feel invincible?

Friyay OOTD 4/1/16

Its Friday, which means payday, casual work attire and start to a weekend of netflixing. Oh and its April fools… I’m sure like many of you, I wake up stare into the abyss known as my closet and think I have nothing to wear.  Yet there are hangers full of items.  I mean I still need to be fairly profesh ya know? So button downs and blouses are my staples, and I usually wear them on weekends.  I’m all about versatility and need items that can do both.  Plus mama’s on a budget so what’s old is new again! I wish I could say April fools, no budget for me.

What about you readers? Are you able to make what’s old new again?  And happy April Fools and maybe your pranks go off without a hitch….

Fashion Friday’s 

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

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!
