Personally I don’t support Black Friday. I know, who doesn’t love a sale, but I refuse to not allow workers to enjoy the holidays because so many stores now open Thursday evening instead of Friday. We have to realize that the true meaning of the holidays is to get together with family and not camp out for the latest gadget.

However, Cyber Monday is much less harmless and way more practical. It’s become the biggest shopping day of the year!

Fashion's World Capitals

In collaboration with

Every year, I’m always struggling to put together a costume for a last minute Halloween party. So I’ve come up with three different looks you probably already own. These looks are made up of basic pieces that most likely already exist in your closet. If they don’t, you can go out and buy ALL of these items and re-wear them through out the year as opposed to just once.

Yesterday I attended a Fashion for Breakfast hosted by Teen Vogue’s Fashion and Accessories director Marina Larroude and the Founder and Designer of Chelsea Paris Theresa Ebagua. The woman shared there perspectives on the fashion industry as an editor and the other as a designer. They were genuine, humble and very stylish! It was a pleasure and honor to have met them.

Have a fun & well-rested weekend!
