What The Chic Is She Wearing? Living In Leopard

Right now, one of the hottest pieces this season is the leopard coat. You can’t scroll through Instagram, Pinterest, or a fashion site without seeing a look that includes a leopard coat. When I snagged this coat a few years ago at a local thrift shop, I couldn’t help but want to pair it with EVERYTHING. I threw this coat over a chambray top and a pair of dark wash denim, and let the coat bring the look up several notches. I slid on some backless mules, for a little menswear flair and kept it moving!

It may be a cold winter, but I’m heating it up with my style.

What The Chic Is She Wearing? Athleisure At It’s Best

I’m the kinda girl that has to be forced to go to the gym by my friends or bribe myself to workout. So wearing clothing that reminds me of any kind of exercise ain’t really my thang. However, I’m open to trying almost anything. I snagged these joggers for $10 at Six 02, and I loved the perforated texture of them and the ultra high waist. So why not dip into the athleisure trend? I paired the joggers with a mesh turtleneck bodysuit, a cross back bra underneath, and threw on my Creepers to continue the sportiness of the look.
This athleisure look is a home run, but whether I head to the gym or not is TBD. 😉

What The Chic Is She Wearing?: Mums The Word

The floral trend is everywhere right now, and a trend that was thought for Spring, is now a Fall staple. I got my hands on this killer embroidered moto jacket by BlankNYC and I can’t get enough of it. It really caught my eye because of a hand painted leather jacket by Gucci. I love how feminine the floral detail is and how masculine the structure of the moto jacket is. I’m not even sure if these flowers are roses, or just a random flower, but it’s the perfect statement piece for Fall. I’m really into pieces that require minimum styling, and can just speak on their own. For a little more drama, I paired my jacket with booties, a velvet choker, a vintage style tee and a pair of distressed, raw hem grey denim for an edgy, rocker chic look. 
It’s always fun to let your clothing tell the story for you.

What The Chic Is She Wearing? FENTY X PUMA

Bad Gal Riri is literally EVERYWHERE right now, from accepting a Michael Jackson Vanguard Award from the MTV VMA’s, to Made In America and her rumored, or confirmed relationship with Drake, you cannot get away from this girl. But, I’m here for the fashion. Today, beginning with Bergdorf Goodman, Rihanna is launching her long awaited FENTY X PUMA collection. Other retailers are scheduled to release her clothing tomorrow. And just about every piece is killer. I’ve been obsessed with this collection ever since I saw the pieces walk down the runway during NYFW this February. 
I was granted the opportunity to preview a look from her collection and instantly fell in love with the entire look. Rihanna has solidified her reign as a fashion icon, so it’s only appropriate that her collection is fashion forward and unique. Even though the collection is athelesiure inspired, the gym is not at all worthy of these pieces. This look is something I would want to wear out on the town, and the pieces can be worn with other pieces in your wardrobe. Not to mention it’s ridiculously comfortable. 
Yes Rihanna, we Needed You. 

What The Chic Is She Wearing? {Denim} Bombs Over Baghdad

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I dress for my mood and I have an unhealthy obsession with denim. (Everyone has their vices – don’t judge!)  This day, I was in a chill kind of mood and went for a jeans and tee look. Band tees and tour merch are on every celeb right now, and really are a new classic in every wardrobe. However, instead of a legendary rock band, I donned a tee from the legendary hip hop duo – Outkast. Pairing the band tee with a pair of on-trend patchwork denim, gave this look major chill vibes. I added a vintage denim vest, and created a choker look out of a bandana, grabbed my bag and experimentally threw on fur slides, which worked so well with the look.

What The Chic Is She Wearing? Dockside

Everyone is SO obsessed with the off-shoulder trend, and it’s classic and super cute but I needed a bit of a change – enter the one shoulder.  I like the modern, asymmetric feel of the one shoulder, and the menswear-inspired, classic look of this top. I paired the top with a pair of striped wide leg pants for a funkier, monochrome look. To add some detail, I threw on some reflective sunglasses, smeared on some orange matte lip gloss and fringe sandals. 
I’m feeling dockside chic.

Chic on The Streets: New Chic on The Block x The Cut

So I was able to attend NYFW Men’s last week and I ended up being photographed on my journey between shows and presentations. I never thought that I would be in NY Mag’s The Cut, or end up ON THE FRONT PAGE of their Street Style slideshow. This is surreal. Check out the details of my outfit, and my feature below.
