How to Wear Winter White

WEARING: CHICWISH TWEED COAT | AOS JEANS | PUBLIC DESIRE BOOTS | CHLOE BAG


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHICWISH & PUBLIC DESIRE.

Monday Blues? What if I told you there was a way to polish up your winter wardrobe as easy as 1, 2, 3? Today’s discussion is the white talk. Nah, not the political kind. But fasssshuuuun. Lolol. For those that follow the ‘No white after Labor Day’ rule, don’t fret! This look will perhaps change your mind about wearing white during the colder season, but with the right palette and cool (heh heh) accessories, you won’t look washed out. For those that are accident prone like myself, I can’t help you there, except a trusty Tidy bleach pen and a lil’ prayer. That’s the risk you take when wearing white! Continue reading see more of this gorgeous winter coat that’s white, but also blue! Follow the link to shop. Hurry there’s only 5 LEFT!!!

Ready to luxe up your outerwear collection? It’s one and done with this tweed coat boasting a double-breasted button closure, front flap up pockets and elegant fringe. The added pearls on the cuffs exude that sophistication and wintry feel. This coat run at $108 - really good deal for the quality of this piece. And HURRY - there’s literally only 5 LEFT! This fall/winter coat can be styled in many ways. With a beautiful dress, midi skirt, jeans, trousers and more, it’s a rebelliously chic winter coat to have in your closet! I styled this piece with a lot of white, that being my focus color of this outfit palette.

I’ve worn these boots with a red metallic dress during NYFW (HERE) but how perfect are they for the fall/winter season?! These beauties are from Public Desire and run for only $65. I love the flared block heel and pointed toe along with the metal hardwear detailing on the sides. Edgy yet still refined. To have my legs elongate further, I blended them with the boots in tightly cropped white jeans by Articles of Society. The snug/fit of their denim is ridiculously comfortable.

To tie in with the elegance of the coat, I accessorized with this blue bag and some pearl earrings. The bag definitely helps keep with the palette of blue and white, and not blending too much white together where you’ll suddenly disappear. (or even worse, looking like Casper, the friendly ghost.) Another trick that helps when wearing white? Go with cooler tones with your makeup! It tends to “frost” things up… think ice queen. (but minus the bitchiness lolol) The combination complement with each other and in my opinion, cooler tones gives more way to the face. That way not all of someone’s attention is on your white ensemble. Questions about any makeup products used to achieve this look? Or questions about the coat? Outfit? Drop them down below in the comment box. Happy Monday!

How to Wear Leopard Green

WEARING: AKIRA LEOPARD PRINT BLAZER | DL 1961 DENIM HEPBURN JEANS | CHANEL BAG | BCBG HEELS | BING BANG NYC EARRING | MAKEUP: ALL BY URBAN DECAY


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY AKIRA, VIVRELLE, & URBAN DECAY COSMETICS BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

It’s Friday and I’m on the prowl! One can definitely say when it comes to my style, I’m far from minimalist. As my friend put it last night in a witty description, I’m a ‘maximalist’. And I think this look states just that. It’s loud, rocker chic, with a subtle side of glamour. Definitely some sultriness going on in today’s post as well, follow along to get a closer look at the entire outfit, along with makeup and accessory details, hair, bag, shoes… oh my! A dangerously playful fall vibe. Check it!

What’s super hot in trending fashion right now? Animal print! But more so, leopard. Anything from head to toe, I can get on board with. I literally am in search of a leopard newsboy cap because HOW freaking cute would that be?! When I first noticed this blazer, I was immediately drawn to the print and color. The AKIRA label On The Prowl Leopard Corduroy Blazer is a chic and sexy, tight fitting blazer, ready to bring the heat to your future fall outfits. A textured corduroy material makes up the base of the jacket while a bold and fashion forward lime green leopard print pattern encompasses the entirety of the blazer. Pair with the matching AKIRA Label On The Prowl Cropped Leopard Corduroy Pant and some pointed toe pumps to complete the look. However, I went a different styling route.

Don’t get me wrong. The matching set would be dope too, but I really found the blazer alone with a pair of wide leg jeans - these ones are from DL 1961 Denim and are my favorite jeans brand ever. It gives less busyness around the look, separating different materials always spices up a look, so I even played with different prints, like the leopard with python skin. This sage, pink and multicolor python Chanel mini flap bag with matte silver-tone hardware, single chain-link and leather shoulder strap, is literal perfection. I love how it brings a more evening style to this, quite the eye-catching outfit for date night!

Members can experience an item for as long as they'd like, or swap it out monthly. If you love your accessory, you can buy it as well!

Urban Decay Look

Overdrive Eyeliner

Naked Cherry Highlight & Blush Palette

Naked Cherry Vice Lipstick in Devilish

Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette

All-Nighter Foundation in 7.75

Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

I did all my makeup using only Urban Decay products, especially the new Naked Cherry eyeshadow palette which is the BOMB, along with the Naked Cherry highlight & blush palette. The lipstick I’m using is called “Devilish” and is a beautiful berry pink with tonal micro-shimmer. And the eyeliner I’m using is called “Overdrive” in a deep green metallic, which I found really fitting with the accented pinks of the eyeshadow, lips and bag, along with the lime green colored blazer. What do you guys think of this look? Should I do a makeup tutorial of it on YouTube? Let me know in the comments down below!

To polish up my look along with hiding my overgrown bangs (thank goodness for my hair appointment tomorrow morning!) I pulled my hair back using six bobby pins on each side. I have thick hair so it takes a ton of pins to get it to hold. I paired them in threes - with a gap between the held lines of the bobby pins. I think it really cleans up this look well, don’t you? Just a bit of glamour never hurt anyone. Heels are by BCBG and are no longer available but I did link a very similar pair here that’s about $67. Classy yet affordable. Earring is by Bing Bang NYC. To shop the look, you can always search at the beginning or end of each style blog post. I’m also linking the beauty products I’ve used for this look in the middle of the post, so look to find the links. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

5 Tips to Nail Your Next Meeting

WEARING: CHICWISH TWEED COAT | GUESS SWEATER | JOES JEANS | PRETTY LITTLE THING SLINGBACKS | ODETTE & ODILE MARBLE POUCH


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHICWISH & PLT.

I've been to hundreds of meetings. Some you nail right out of the park and then there are others that don't go as well. First impressions do count-down to the very last detail and after a lot of trial and error, I wanted to share my tips on how to nail your next big meeting! Whether it's your first time meeting with a client you've been dreaming of working together or a quick pow-wow meeting with those you already work with, these essentials will not only make your life easier but the lives of others around you as well. So without further ado, let's get started with my two cents' worth of my top 5 main suggestions for landing your next gig/client.

1. BE ON TIME

Nothing irks me more than those who are regularly late. Biggest pet peeve. Sure, in a city like New York and with all the congested traffic, running 5-10 minutes late is a norm but anything longer than that is just rude and unaccountable. It tells two tale-telling signs (to me): One, you don't take the meeting very seriously if you show up that late and two, it also shows me that you are not reliable (or even worse, irresponsible). So the next best thing for everyone? Just show up a few minutes earlier. If you have to set your alarm fifteen minutes earlier than usual, do it because it'll also save you the hassle of rushing as well, where that's when everyone makes the most mistakes. 

2. DO YOUR RESEARCH


I can't tell you how many times I went into a meeting and the person did not do their homework, let alone, know anything about me and/or what I could bring to the table. Eeeek! Don't be that person. If it's more than one person meeting with you, you better research everyone in the room. We're not talking a background check, but yes, know their position and abilities before talking smack about what you can do for them. Demonstrate your preparation by asking questions about the person(s) and not so much about yourself - don't worry they will be asking about you too but don't forget the give and take rule. Listen first, speak later. 

3. BE UPFRONT

Now, this doesn't mean opening up your "Dear, Diary" and spilling the 411 on your entire life story, let alone anything super personal. What I mean is don't be afraid to answer with conviction about your skills and knowledge. It doesn't have to be a novella of an answer, but one with a couple short sentences wrapping up your talents with a nice 'bow' if you will. It also doesn't look like you're trying too hard, because who wants to listen to your lists of accomplishments (that you probably memorized off your resume) Keep it short and sweet but with purpose. 

4. BE PRESENTABLE

Both physically and mentally. Being present is key along with a first good impression by the way you dress and yes present yourself. Polish those shoes, wear that tie/dress that hugs your hips and makes you feel extra confident but remaining true to you. Obviously, don't show up looking like you're ready to perform in a risque cabaret, but dress the part. The second part is all mental. This has to do with body language, leaving your phone in your bag, to even that initial handshake. They all count. Being present in the moment during a meeting goes a long way, and shows that you're invested and committed to that meeting, and in turn, the job at hand.

5. FOLLOW UP SOONER RATHER THAN LATER

Once you've worked your angles and made your impression to the client, the next best thing is to touch-base rather quickly. Now you don't want to look overly desperate so waiting a day or two is fine, but in this day and age where we are constantly on the go, meeting with other potential clients, and then some, it's easy to forget people and things once too much time has passed. So be diligent and follow through with an email or phone call, thanking them for their time with some sort of continuing conversation regarding your meeting. 

Have any questions regarding this post? Well... then GO FOR IT! Drop me a line in the comments section down below or send me an email! We love engaging with our readers and are always down to continue the conversation. Last piece of advice? If you want something badly enough, first and foremost, you have to go for it. Be audacious. Others will know through your actions and words if you really are dedicated in achieving something, whatever it may be. Until next time...

NYFW SS19 Outfits

Hi, everyone! Sorry I’ve been majorly MIA on the blog this month! I’ve been away traveling during fashion month and just came back from London a few days ago, straight away jumping into seven different campaigns, all that needed to be shot here in New York, hence my absence in Milan and Paris this season! But watch out February, we’re going to try to make it a full complete month for the very first time… so I’m coming for you! Finally got around to sharing all my looks from NYFW this season, definitely more than the usual seven, as I ran around to a few pre-fashion week events and presentations. I was definitely into mixing prints and colors, all the while keeping my laidback style with a tinge of rebel rocker chic. Scroll down to take a look and also to directly shop all items from each outfit!
