US Open Style Diary: A Frankie Morello White Techno Crepe Organza Dress, Valentino Rockstud Pumps, and a Chanel Bag from A Second Chance Resale

So yesterday I spent the day at the US Open, watching matches! I wanted to go with a tennis inspired outfit, so unearthed a pleated white dress by Frankie Morello. I am almost painfully preppy. Can you tell? I accessorized with Valentino Rockstud Pumps, a Chanel bag from A Second Chance Resale, a J. Crew bedazzled cuff, and Dior So Real Sunglasses. Yesterday was fun, but I’m honesty feeling under the weather today. Maybe it was too much sun? IF…

New York Fall 2015 Fashion Week Style Diary Day 1: A Haute Hippie Red Fur Coat, Zara Pussybow Blouse, and Muehleder Signature Net Skirt

Ok, so forgive the lack of posts! Running FBD is time consuming enough, and during Fashion Week? Forget it! One day I hope to run full time, and hand over the day-to-day grind of to someone else. Until then, you’ll be getting posts a week late. My bad! Day one of New York Fashion week kicked off with the BCBG show at Lincoln Center. For the occasion, I decided to make a splash in a red fur Haute…

Panel Style Diary: A Red Valentino Floral Printed Drop Waist Dress, Kate Spade Paris and the Single Girl Book Clutch, and Zara Double Breasted Faux Leather Jacket

April is my month for panels and events, and I kicked the circuit off yesterday with a talk sponsored by In Her Shoes Blog and Essence. I joined Renae Bluitt of In Her Shoes, Demetria Lucas of Bravo’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels and A Belle in Brooklyn, Latham Thomas of Mama Glow, and Anthony Dickey of Hairrules as we talked about our work mantras and how we ultimately pursued our dreams! I’m a girly girl. So shoot me! So I…

Day 4 New York Fashion Week: Milly by Michelle Smith and Valentino Rockstuds

You know those days you just feel bloated and exhausted?? That’s exactly how I felt when I wore this look! But I thought: black and black is always slimming, and the interest in the skirt is away from my stomach! Valentino Rockstuds are BY FAR the most comfortable show in the world. I gave my feet a rest in them, and was on my way (with a pair of Prada Baroque sunglasses. I hesitated to buy them years ago, but…

The Bomb Life Rewind: An Etro Printed Button Down Blouse, Diane von Furstenberg Skirt, DVF Clutch, and Valentino Nude Rockstud Pumps

Ready for another Bomb Life Rewind? This one is courtesy of an Etro blouse and a Diane von Furstenberg pleated skirt. Mixing prints is not for the conservative (ahem, me), though black and white can be a bit easier to tackle as long as the tones coordinate. Just make sure that at least a handful of your accents are neutral. For me, it was my favorite nude Valentino Rockstud pumps. In these past few years, I’ve learned to make due…

So this blog is supposed to document my personal style, but I have loads of pix that I haven’t yet posted! So I thought I’d introduce The Bomb Life Rewind. It’ll basically be posts profiling some of my favorite looks from the past year or so. I wore the ensemble above to yap at the IFB Blogger Conference. I love a cute little suit, so slipped on a metallic gold option by Rag & Bone, anchored by an Etro printed…
