The Bomb Life Rewind: An Equipment Top, Nicholas Bonded Split Skirt, and Givenchy Shark Tooth Sandals

A great place to score duds for less? Ebay. Such was the case for this Equipment top that I wanted, but was sold out *everywhere*. I found a vendor who had the blouse above in several sizes. I didn’t ask any questions, just pressed ‘purchase.’ I paired it with a Nicholas Bonded Split Skirt I also scored for a steal. Around June of every year, summer clothes go on sale. Save your coins for that time, and then get what…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A Mary Katranztou Spring 2013 Printed Postage Stamp Blouse, Venezuela Skirt, Proenza Schouler Silver Sandals, and Proenza Schouler Plum Bag

These rewind posts are so random: but who cares, right? I’m so new to personal style blogging, I honestly have no idea what I’m doing. Bear with me;) Behold, another one of my favorite looks of all time! I wore it to speak on the keynote panel for the Blogging While Brown Conference. I have a thing for London based designers, and Mary Katrantzou is on my short list of favorites. I fell in love with her Spring 2013 collection,…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A Mara Hoffman Dress, Christian Louboutin Wedges, and Gap Mirrored Sunglasses

I honestly feel I took some of the best pictures of my life during a trip to Ibiza, Spain this past March. With gorgeous water and bright sun, how could one go wrong? This Mara Hoffman dress, paired with my Christian Louboutin neon wedges, made for a delightfully citrusy combo. I love mixing ‘high’ and ‘low’: my Gap mirrored sunglasses couldn’t have cost more than $20 (though you’ll see everyone running to Ray-Ban to drop $200 on the same thing).…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A T by Alexander Wang Pleated Neoprene Dress, Helmut Lang Blazer, and Givenchy Shark Tooth Sandals

Fashion and Style Director of W Magazine, Edward Enninful, once said, “Black on Black is always chic.” The notion isn’t necessarily new, though the application always holds true. I was invited to a Dolce & Gabbana store opening, and was rushing around, trying to figure out what to wear. Alexander Wang’s Pleated Neoprene Dress came in handy. I kept the rest of my look simple and neutral with a Helmut Lang blazer and Givenchy shark tooth sandals. As my style…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A Preen Line Ivy Paneled Stretch Cotton Drill Dress, Miu Miu Gingham Slingbacks, and a Proenza Schouler Plum Bag

I wore this Preen Line Ivy Paneled Stretch Cotton Drill Dress with Miu Miu Gingham slingbacks to a dinner with Janelle Monae, sponsored by Essence Magazine: Janelle’s style is all about conservative modesty, so I decided on a look inspired by her (down to my hair). Photos by Marta McAdams…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A Helmut Lang Fur Jacket, Givenchy Tank, Rag & Bone Jeans, and a Givenchy Tote

On any given day in the winter, you’ll find me in all black, intensified by textures: think, fur, fringe, or even velvet (yes velvet!). I shot the following pix by Palais de Tokyo with my favorite French photographer, Guillaume Landry. I’ll admit, most times when I post pictures on my blog, I am all gussied up, headed to an event. I took these pix to display my casual style–something I’d wear any day of the week. Trust me, I’m still…

The Bomb Life Rewind: Rag & Bone’s Leather and Wool Biker Tail Coat, Acne Satya Dress, and DSquared2 Raso Booties

Though I’m the consummate girly girl, I do sometimes like to go for darker looks. This little ensemble was a little goth, and definitely downtown, though the movement of the dress made me feel pretty and feminine. The specs: a floor sweeping black dress by Acne and a leather and wool biker tail coat by Rag & Bone. Some items are just great investments! I can’t wear my Grey Ant sunglasses or my Givenchy Nightingale enough. True story: my Givenchy…

The Bomb Life Rewind: A Dries Van Noten Fall 2012 Dress and Pierre Hardy Booties

I tend to only really record my outfits during Fashion Week. This one was one of my favorites. I had literally been frothing at the mouth for these Pierre Hardy booties after spying them on Naomie Harris. Once they went on sale, I bought them immediately. I scored this Dries van Noten dress on sale as well. It was actually a bit small, but I went to the tailor to get the lining taken out. I can’t stress enough the…
