This year was no different and as tempting as it was to buy new clothes, I went into my closet and found a tulle skirt and batwing cardigan I’ve never worn before.

Full Skirt with Floppy Hat

This post is not sponsored but contains some affiliate links Did I mention I LOVE Fall Fashion? The Sunday after coming back from San Juan, Puerto Rico was so nice, I decided to wear my favorite full skirt with a floppy hat to church. I’ve always found full skirts and fit and flare dresses to be good for me since I have a pear shape. Since I’m still in the beginning stages of my...

Indo-Caribbean Style at Bazodee the Movie Premiere

Jewelry and shirt were provided for the movie premiere. Excited about covering Bazodee the Movie as press, the question of ‘what to wear?” stayed in my mind. Going with the African-Indian theme of the movie, I wanted to include NYC Urban, Indian and Caribbean looks, so I came up with what I call an “Urban-Beti”. Beti is a Hindi word that means daughter and sometimes a woman in India and Indo-Caribbean cultures. The top...

OOTD: 30th Masquerade

Happy March! It’s been a long time since I’ve done an OOTD. This weekend, I had the honor of attending one of my cousin’s 30th birthday party in Chesapeake, VA. The theme was a “30 Shades of Beauty” Masquerade party. Now I WOULD accept an invite to a masquerade party, and not have a mask. Luckily, I was helping out with decorations and picked one up at a local Party...

Afternoon at the Brooklyn Museum

This post is not sponsored but contains some affiliate links Day 26 of Blogtober calls for a “Throwback”. For Independence Day, I went to the Brooklyn Museum to view the Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties exhibit. I love history, was obsessed with “The Sixties” series on CNN and hold a great interest in civil rights in the US so I just HAD to see it. Another good reason...

Boat Ride on the Bay

This post is not sponsored but contains some affiliate links Summertime is long gone, but I wanted to share a simple outfit worn for a boat ride I went to in Sheepshead Bay in late August. The boat ride was on a Sunday evening around the Jamaica Bay; nothing spectacular, but it was a lovely site the few min I went outside. Not only was I recovering from a cold,...

Floral Lace Dress with Strappy Heels

Weddings are so rare these days & this I was lucky enough to receive three invites. Unlike my best friend’s wedding, this bride and groom are all about glitz and glamor. I tried my best to play the part but still stay within my budget. Here’s how I pulled off a floral lace dress with strappy heels as a summer wedding guest.
