My style is... 6.8.10

My style is a mish-mosh between 60's and 70's, bohemian luxe comfort. That is how I would describe it.

I dress for myself. I dress for comfort. I dress to be happy in what I am wearing. I dress simplistically.

I have been getting tons of emails requesting fashion advice and tips. I think this is a very hard thing to give as styling and fashion is very personal. My only advice is dress to make yourself happy. You should feel confident everyday in whatever you choose to wear.

Also, something very important is to not follow trends. Well, you can follow trends but only follow trends that fit your body type. Know your body and love your body and don't embarrass your body! Not everyone looks good in harem pants or leggings or plunging neck lines or...whatever! Be mindful of your natural shape and dress to flatter it!

I have take a few snaps this week of some outfits I have worn to work.

Jeans and White Tee.
Very basic, I use a very large white YSL bag to accessorize here.


Nautical Inpsired on a Hot Day
The outfit was based around Alexander Wang's jersey over sized boat neck tank and my very large balenciaga weekender.

Safari Themed.
A khaki green long pants romper accessorized with a vintage gold cuff. I love green and gold together. I also used the black balenciaga weekender again.



A black tie event, Luxe.
I wore a sample dress that I own. This is a silver dress with a graphic x going over my hips.
I accessorized with gold shoes and a gold clutch. Opposite of the muted silver color of the dress.


Here are a few quick face shots.

A panama hat from JCrew and a bright coral lipstick. I used Chanel's Genial.


Bronzed face and a nude lip with over sized aviators, no name brand.


I hope this gave you a little bit of insight into my daily looks.

A few of my fashion must haves:

- Bold oversized jewelry
- tons of rings
- White T- Shirts
- An oversized black everyday bag
- Aviator Sunglasses
- The perfect pair of jeans
- a metallic clutch to go with anything, vintage or new
- The perfect White Structured Shirt
- Denim cutoffs
- Leather Leggings
- The perfect black pump shot
- A striped long sleeve shirt
- A nude heel to elongate your legs
- Anything is drapey- whisper soft jersey!
- CONFIDENCE!


I have also enlisted two of my most stylish friends to take daily OOTD shots for me to showcase for you in the upcoming weeks, Eunice and Stephanie. So you can get excited to see some more real life NYC inspiration!

  5. thank you so much! more fashion advice is always welcome. please show us all your new fashion purchases on youtube in the future

    quick question: where do you buy your white shirts? You did a ton of videos the other day in a really cute white shirt and i think you had a black tanktop or bra under it and you looked super cute. so i was just wondering where it was from

    thanks
