I can't stop myself from wearing knee high and thigh high boots this Winter. I don't always wear heels when I'm out running errands so I wanted to start doing more posts with my sneakers and boots. My new favorite hats are from GodxGuap. I got these 5 panel gems in wine, black, and camo.

I'm ver particular when it comes to wearing sequin. Love how mermaid-esque this SimplyBe dress is. It's hard to tell but my nails are painted this gorgeous iridescent color that match the dress perfectly. I have been getting loads of questions about what to wear for the holidays. I spent some time choosing my top sequin dresses for you guys. I hope you find the one that suits you!

The jacket I designed for Mynt1792 is shipping out today. That means I finally get to see how all of you style it. I just got mine in the mail so you'll be seeing me do a few posts here and there, styling it various ways. It's pretty exciting having something come to life after imagining it in your head for so long. I'm really just anxious to see all of you wearing it. People expect me to always be so happy because I'm touching people's lives but it's hard to fully register it because it's through a computer. I think once I see the people who support me wearing my product, i'll probably break down in tears. haha. Be sure to send me pictures! You guys can still purchase it HERE!

Apologies for my absence. I'm happy to say that I have officially moved to Jersey City. A lot of packing up, shipping, u-hauling, and shopping. I've been extremely busy due to the fact that I'm one of those people where everything has to be organized and in the right place. It didn't help that it's been raining non-stop for almost 2 days. I hope everyone has fun spending time with their family. I wish I was with mine!

I snapped some pictures after viewing an apartment in Jersey City today. It's basically the apartment of my dreams. Tons of closet space, high ceilings, and an extra room for my office which I am desperately in need of. When I finally move in, I might do one of those house posts to give you guys a little tour. I've done a lot of thinking and LA isn't good timing for me. I must say, Jersey is so inexpensive compared to NY, so with all my extra money I'll be making plans to travel more, including LA. I haven't done a giveaway in a while so I've teamed up with Retro City Sunglasses to give away a pair of these high wire sunglasses that are pretty much everything. To enter, all you have to do is comment below with your name, email, and tell me in one sentence what you love most about yourself. I'll be picking the winner November 26th. Good luck! xo

I'm honestly so grateful to have such a wide variety of followers that are all shapes and sizes. Sometimes being on the higher end of "straight size" and the lower end of "plus size" ultimately gives me an advantage because I'm able to wear more brands. I like calling it the "curvy" category. Good quality plus size clothing is already so hard to come by so I'm all about showing my readers options. I appreciate brands like Forever 21 that have both straight and plus size pieces. My top is from Forever 21's regular sizes and my skirt is also from them but their plus section.

My hair is finally getting to one length again. I'm so excited to be able to part it down the middle like I use to when I had long hair. Can we discuss this stunning quilted skirt I fell in love with? You know how there are some zippers on clothing that don't actually work and are just there for decoration? Well that's not this skirt because I'm happy to say it actually does zip totally up and down. Such a fan of anything quilted. Reminds me of Chanel bags.

Wearing sweaters as dresses because I have a short torso? Yes please. I do it every time the temperature starts dropping. It's very rare when I wear silver jewelry but love how it looks with grey. I've been wearing white heels and white nails a lot lately.

This next paragraph is quotes I've accumulated over time to keep me going. They may inspire some of you like they have me. "100% set in my ways of perfecting my craft because it's for a larger purpose than any semblance of happiness that immediate gratification provides. Most people want to be successful but don't want it bad, they just kind of want it. They don't want it badder than they want to party and to be cool. Don't be afraid to make decisions. It's about how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Pain is temporary. Something else will take its place eventually. If you quit however, it will last forever. Figuring out for yourselves what makes you happy, no matter how crazy it sounds to other people. To be able at any moment to sacrifice what you are, for what you will become. Most talent you have naturally, but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft. When people can't do something themselves, they tell you you can't do it. You need to sacrifice almost everything to achieve your goal. When people say you're lucky, they don't know what they're talking about. Luck has nothing to do with achieving your goals. It's work. When you succeed, people will try to justify to you in a simple way why you've succeeded."
