Urban 90’s Roots

So being that I was born and raised in New York I have a special place in my heart for all things jordan. I thought I had outgrown that phase once I started my love affair with heels in florida. Needless to say I never felt so comfortable and stylish in “casual” attire. Everyone from my bf to randoms on the streets of Las Vegas were complimenting me on my outfit, even going as far as to start mini arguments between rival cities and sports teams ..white socks anyone? My muscle “chicago bulls” tank top is from forever 21 (similar teams below). I purchased these camo leggings from love culture but they can also be found at forever 21 as well. I have had these Jordan 3’s ever since they were passed down to me from my older sis a million years ago. I gave them some major tlc to remove the yellowing on the soles and rocked them out to the surprise and dismay of my friends and loved ones! They are not perfect and are creased up (for all those sneaker heads out there) but I didn’t care and I love the retro look and feel of the completed look. Goes to show you can be sexy and cute dressed up or down!

What happens in Vegas……

Just got back from LAS VEGAS, Nevada!!!! I went this past weekend with a group of friends and the boo thang for a lovely weekend of fun, partying and living it up! The original plan was to blog outfit post as I was there but with a combination of high wifi rates and my physical state not being up to par I chose to save it for a time when my thoughts were less fuzzy. I stayed for a total of 4 days and was able to put together some epic looks that Im really excited about. Lets start off with a bang…My sexy catsuit from love culture! Their are no words for how this thing made me feel. It hugged you in close, and was revealing enough to be sexy but not so much that it was vulgar due to the high neck collar and length of the pants. The curvature and placement of the mesh is positioned to give the illusion of a smaller waist to hip ratio (which works in my favor!).The royal blue complimented my skin tone and of course the sheer vertical mesh up each leg (reaching my waist) was just the Vegas oophm that I needed. Needless to say I received so many compliments from both males and females. We went to Pure Nightclub and I danced the night away to west coast gangster rap/twerkin songs that I never heard of and had an amazing time showing off my sexy attire.

Go check this catsuit out if you want to feel extra special one night!

New Years FUN!

So it’s a New Year and with that comes the promise of new beginnings and new adventures to come for 2013.  2012 brought about many changes for me and its going to be fun seeing everything come together. I celebrated both with my family and then friends at a small gathering. Per usual, I was overdressed and in ridiculous heels, good times!


Cropped high/low black top w/ faux leather sleeves: Love Culture

-In my opinion the main focal point of the outfit is the amazing pants Im wearing! They are high waisted shiny metallic pants purchased at Forever 21. They are still available on the site! Super comfy and an affordable option when you feel a little fancy.

My amazing heel-less black platforms were purchased on a trip to NY over the summer at rainbow. They resemble many different designer versions (steve madden, jeffrey campbell etc) but I got them for less then half those prices! I love popping into little random stores like rainbow even though it may be hit or miss just because when you do find something its usually an awesome score like these heels! Got so many compliments on these babies, and I only tipped over a couple of times.



The total cost of my new years eve outfit was around $70 including the heels! Proving that you can be  thrifty even for the really special occasions.

Heres to this year being full of new and amazing opportunities (both in life and for my closet).
