Street Style at Art Basel "Miami Beach"

Free To Be Free...

So today I scoped out a little bit of street style on "Style.com" and saw a lot of rocker chic free people on the streets of Miami Beach. I love when men and women can feel free to dress and express their own personal style the way they want to.

From trendy skirts to colorful accessories and men in black, it was such an inspiration and very refreshing for me to see all the freedom I'm street wear.

How would you express your street style? Here's a few photos to get you inspired.

A trench coat is a staple piece that should be in everyone's wardrobe, male or female. This piece can be worn casual or dressy for any occasion.

The trend this season is faux leather detail that's being added to collars, sleeves, and piping through out tops and bottoms. Trench coats have been around for a numerous amount of years and they're never going out of style, My suggestion for you is to go out and invest in one and I bet you'll have it for the rest of your life!

Suggested Brands: Burberry, Ann Taylor, The Gap, Ivanka Trump, Tracey Reese, Gucci, Michael Kors, Banana Republic etc.

Rihanna Gets Sexy For ELLE Magazine Novemeber 2014 Issue

Sexy ELLE Magazine Spread...

This season your favorite instagramer is back in a fantastic way. Rihanna gives us a glimpse of her photo spread in ELLE Magazine's November 2014 issue. 

Rocking an updo with loose curls, an edgy vail, a rocker chic gown, and low cut designer pieces.

Famed Photographer: Paola Kudacki

Let's take a peek at Ri Ri's gorgeous photos!

Enjoy!







Rihanna style is what I would call "Effortlessly Chic." I always tell my clients not to put so much thought into their everyday looks. Sometimes the best outfits are the ones that are not thought out by process. 

I'm not saying that's Rihanna doesn't think about what she's wearing and just throws on anything, but the way she dresses is effortless. When shopping do it strategically, look around at your favorite stores and collect all of your thoughts on what you saw, then go back and purchase the items you just can't live without. Remember to invest in that one expensive piece that will take you a long way in your wardrobe, but also mix and match with inexpensive items as well.

Master The Art Of Layering

Mix it up...

This season master the art of layering with pieces that you already have in your wardrobe. Instead of buying that big bulky coat, layer different pieces and mix it up a little.

For example:

Chunky sweaters
Ponte knit pants and dresses
Sweat shirts
Button down shirts
Sweaters
Denim


One of my all time favorites is dresses or skirts with jeans. This trend gives you any edgy outside the box look. I guarantee heads will turn.

Check out these examples of how you can layer for the Fall and Winter 2014.

Enjoy!



ELLE November 2014


Zoe is giving us life in her LBD for the cover of ELLE Magazine November 2014 issue. Don't be afraid to show a little leg when dressing for an evening event. I always suggest searching for the perfect little black dress that has volume. That way this gives the illusion that the dress is not as short as it may seems.

Zoe you rocked it!

Beauty Tip

Tamar Braxton

This Diva is always snatched to the Gods every time I see her. From her makeup to her hair and let's not forget her multitude of amazing garments she wears. Tamar is the total Diva that mixes up her trends all the time. 

If you are a caramel complected gal go blonde to lighten up your gorgeous skin tone even more. Also check out the MAC beauty counter at any Nordstrom or your local mall and add some statement lashes to liven up your look for a Friday night out. Along with the lashes grab a bronzer compact to highlight your cheek bones, this gives you a glow that's definitely appropriate for any occasion.

Riccardo Tisci and Erykah Badu-Essence Magazine & Wiz Kalifah

Paper Mag- Boldness Beyond Boundaries...

There are many eyes on Riccardo who oversees Givenchy's accessories, men's and woman's ready-to wear lines and haute couture. When a designers name gets recognized on music verses I think it's something that needs to be checked out. Rappers like 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Kanye West have dropped Riccardo Tisci's name in a few verses.

He has also befriended Ms. Erykah Badu, one of my favorite soul singers in the music business. They are featured together in Paper Mag on a subway and on the streets of New York.

Enjoy!

Queen Latifah


Hey Yo Wiz!!!

I've got to say "I'm definitely loving the purple locs." I guess since the break up with Wiz Kalifah and the lovely Amber Rose, maybe he figured he needed a new start with something fresh and he decided to express himself by changing his hair color. I love the new look Wiz, only you can pill this one off.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Always Modern...

Tracee Ellis Ross has always been one of my inspirations when it comes to celebrity style. Today on the Wendy Williams show she rocked gold door knocker earings with her name in the middle of the hoop, a black and white Raoul dress and red Kurt Geiger heels. I love the concept of always having a pop of color that adds flavor to any look.

It's so liberating to see her in fresh modern looks when she makes an appearance. Oh and let's not forget her natural curls that always make a statement. 

Tracee also stars on the new sitcom Blackish on ABC with co-stars Anthony Anderson and Lawrence Fishburne.

Enjoy!
