Red Carpet Affair

The Eva Bryn Shoetique turned one! What a fantastic shop! I’m incredibly happy for my dear friend Kelly who turned her passion into reality. I admire anyone who brings their dream to fruition.

For this occasion, I wanted my shoes to be the star. I paired my hand drawn graphic tee with a structured blazer, leather trousers and my beloved Lucy Choi Dorsett ankle boot.

Golden Goddess Glow

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of school bells ringing. To celebrate, my gf is having a pool party. Because she’s EXTRA, we’ll have a bartender on site! I mean honestly, what’s a party without a mixologist? #SteelCityMixology

Here’s 3 tricks to pulling off that Gorgeous Golden Goddess Glow.

#1 Mix liquid bronzer with lotion or body oil and apply generously to arms and legs. If you have your act together, pencil in an application of self-tanning body oil the day before your event. I use Josie Maran‘s or these tan towels.

#2 Use highlighter on your shins, collarbone, and shoulders. I also like this one by Benefit Cosmetics and of course my ultimate fave, Becca’s Champagne Pop.

#3 Go for the gold jewelry…all of it. As a matter of fact, if your husband doesn’t say “The ladies in Goodfellas called and want their jewelry back!”, then you don’t have on ENOUGH.

My favorite summertime accessories have been oversize sunnies, a statement ring, gold hoops, a single bangle pushed up my forearm, and my gold chunky link Apple watch band.

Fancy Pants

If you’ve ever worked out with me, then you know I’m a big fond fan of bold tights. I adore bright colors, graphic patterns and stripes. They are a staple and investment piece in my wardrobe. Some of my favorite brands include but are not limited to; K-Deer, Bombshell Sportswear, and Alo Yoga.

When purchasing tights, I need the following things: high rise, full/ankle length, won’t show sweat, squat proof, bold colors and stand out prints. That’s it! But seriously, I work out every day and need tights that are made to last. In my opinion, the brands above have nailed it. They make quality athletic apparel that easily transitions to the street.

She Get It From Her Mama

If you didn’t know, my Ma is majorly fashionable. She is fabulous and has always been on trend. She legitimately needs a YouTube channel. #MakeUpMama

She has a passion for fashion, she follows fashion bloggers, loves fashion magazines and IG influencers. When we get together we trade secrets and obsessions. She shares her gems and treasures with me, while I take mental notes and wonder to myself…Why aren’t you a personal shopper for celebrities? #SKILLS
