Casual Monday: Return to the 60s Mod Style

Going back in style... Wishing I were a product of the 60's in this Vintage Mod Dress. Classic A-line. High neck. Gold button details along with the intricate stitching - oh yeah, baby! It's the swinging sixties! And, of course, I couldn't just wear the dress "as is" - I had to put my own twist … Continue reading Casual Monday: Return to the 60s Mod Style

Fashion Is Life!

On Today's episode of 'Fashion is Life' - here's to a moment of truth...  Since quitting my 'corporate' job, 60 or so days ago, things have not been going as I anticipated. But, that's life. Right? In addition, with the recent passing of my Grandmother, going back to my hometown and being in the presence … Continue reading Fashion Is Life!

Bermuda Style Shorts + Fringe Benefits

In just a few more days, it'll officially be Summer and I'm taking my fringe with benefits on a trip to Bermuda (not really... but in my mind, I'm truly on vacation).  Low-cut tanks with front tie knots will be all I ask for this Summer. Actually, there's a long list of things I proclaim … Continue reading Bermuda Style Shorts + Fringe Benefits

Fashion Isn’t What Fashion Was…

Casually Speaking... Nowadays, the most fashionable, doesn't appear to be draped in the Haute Couture we're use to seeing on the runways. The rise of everyday street style has taken over and gave "fashion" a new meaning. One that's more laid back and allows us to express ourselves as individuals through our own personal style; mix-matching … Continue reading Fashion Isn’t What Fashion Was…

Issa Bra… Made to be seen… 

I can hear my grandmother now, "are you going to button up your shirt? Well, if I had your body I'd be showing it off, too, and catch myself a ball player". And I usually reply with "no, grandma (as I'm dying in laughter). Not trying to catch a ball player I'm just showing off … Continue reading Issa Bra… Made to be seen… 

All About the Lounge Wear… 

Happy Hump Day!!! Let's be real, I'm definitely not one who spends most of their time glam'd up in the best of garments, top designer shoes, MUA on deck and so forth. In fact, majority of the time, it's the total opposite. Calm. Cool. Collective. Deeply in love with my casual basics. Naked face. Essentially, … Continue reading All About the Lounge Wear… 

Overall, it’s Casual Monday…

Taking a page from the old mod style in these (once upon a time) slouchy overalls that I found over a year ago on the clearance rack at TopShop (no longer available). Slim Fit. Exposed zipper pockets. Hidden front-button placket - with a few buttons undone, as my slouchy tank also had a few buttons … Continue reading Overall, it’s Casual Monday…

Ripped Denim & Lace Leggings

Issa Tomboy Glitch... More than often, I just want my grey v-neck, ripped jeans, denim Jacket and a pair of sneakers to satisfy my style cravings when I'm in my "tomboy" mood. Keep it simple because there's no telling what I'll end up doing throughout the day (at least that's what I tell myself when … Continue reading Ripped Denim & Lace Leggings

Everyday Style… Everyday Woman…

Outside of social media, there's this real world I live in. Where I awake and everything isn't so picture perfect or a photo shoot. With coffee spilled on my tank top. My mood is more of a laid back one. And my style becomes just that. Usually, a pair of denim pants will suffice for … Continue reading Everyday Style… Everyday Woman…

Black & White Stripes + Color

Put some color on my black + white stripes... For as long as I could remember, I've always been weary about what to pair with my black + white stripe pieces. Do I play it safe by sticking with what makes sense? The usual monochromatic scheme. Or, think outside the box and do the unexpected? … Continue reading Black & White Stripes + Color
