Fall 2017 Trends!

Heyyyyy Boos! 

Every fashionista’s favorite season is literally two days away, and I couldn’t be more excited! The first day of Fall is THIS FRIDAY! Cooler weather, leaves changing, and gorgeous autumn colors mean it is the perfect time to layer up & dress to impress 😄. A few of my favorite coming trends are: monochromatic looks, wide/statement trousers, vintage inspired furs, belted coats, bling boots, retro hats, updated fringe & ruffles,velvet (yes, again but jewel tones this time), embellished buttons, statement earrings, flowy and flirty midi skirts, more LEATHER (color assortment) & faux leather/vinyl, puffer coats, color blocking, deconstruction, the continuation of the lingerie trend(slip dresses), winter florals (not just roses lol), more sheer and mesh details, SHEARLING, more denim on denim, 70’s plaid, androgyny, Victorian collars, and of course the color for Fall 17- power red alongside Pantone’s top 10 shades (if you know me you know how much I love Pantone!). Check out some Fall fashion inspo below. I can’t wait to put my own spin on some of these trends! 💃🏾🍂🍁

YNOT Images Scholarship Fashion Show

(Photos 3, 5, & 6 – 📸: Miyako Studios)

Hey LouBoos! 

Quick update- A few weeks ago I attended the YNOT Scholarship Foundation Fashion Show hosted by my good friend Tony Minifield. Tony is the lead photographer and creator of YNOT Images, LLC. (Be sure to go check out his website ynotimages.com) Tony and his team were able to coordinate an AMAZING show featuring tons of extremely talented designers and models. The theme of the event was Yin & Yang: The Rise of the Golden Dynasty. Spectators were encouraged to dress their best in white and black, & you guys KNOW I love any excuse to get dressed up 😁💁🏾. One of my favorite parts of the evening was meeting ANTM Cycle 9 Alum Bianca Golden ( yes, I was a slight groupie! I freaked 😭). She’s so beautiful & super sweet! The number one highlight of the event was witnessing two scholarship winners receive an award in the amount of $1,000 each!!! All-in-all the fashion show was outstanding!

Pantone Spring 2017: Kale & Hazelnut 

Hello, hello LouBoos! 

We are officially well into spring, and the Pantone series continues. In today’s post I am wearing Hazelnut and Kale (or Kale’s cousin– close enough lol!). These two top 10 colors of spring 2017 pair well together so I thought why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone? My makeshift utility top is actually my favorite anorak from the fall. I loved it so much I had to figure out a way to bring it with me moving into the warmer season. These awesome cigarette pants are from Boohoo, & they are sooooo comfy! Top it off with matching heels and you have the perfect springtime look that’s not too dressy and not too casual. Get the deets below boos!

DIY Frayed Hem Jeans 👖 2 Ways

Hey LouBoos! 

So, this weekend I decided I wanted to make some of the super trendy frayed hem denim jeans. Initially I planned to buy them, but I ran across an old pair of jeans I never wear & decided to just do it myself 🙂 I used Youtuber Aya Baraqawi’s video for technique & added my own flare. This DIY was super easy to do. I will definitely do it again possibly using black denim next time. I love these jeans because of their versatility! They can be dressed up or down. I saw this t-shirt in look #1 at the thrift store & I just HAD to have it! I considered distressing & bleaching it, but I kind of feel like I need a break from that trend so I decided to leave it as is. I added the longline jacket to sort of play with dressing up t-shirts. For look #2 I decided to switch the top with a fuzzy sweater & add a super glam statement necklace. Both looks are fun & super easy to wear. Get the deets below!

The Walking Dead: Street Style Edition

Hey LouBoos! I haven’t gotten a chance to post in a while. 2017 has been fairly busy because I’m in the process of making a slew of changes. I’m super excited, & I can’t wait to share them with you guys! 🙂  Today’s look is grungy chic. I’m wearing my favorite earthtones with a pop of color. When we were shooting my best friend/ one of my favorite photographers said I look like one of the characters from the Walking Dead (hence the name of this blogpost lol). My favorite piece in this look is the utility jacket because it’s super unique and can be dressed up or down. It’s certainly one of my favorite thrift store finds. You guys will definitely be seeing it again! Check out the outfit deets below!
