Electric Avenue

Why blend in when you were born to stand out!

It’s officially Leo season, the best sign on the planet (that fact is not up for debates or discussion)!  My birthday will be here in a few weeks, and I had to kick it off with something bright and electric. I don’t know about you, but I've become obsessed with all things neon. My closet is full of neon maxi skirts, dresses, and tops.

You're only bold online...

Social Media Confidence vs Real World Confidence

You take pictures for the likes in swimsuits, bodycon, crop tops… you name it. You post it to every social media site and BOOM—you're loved all over the web! But, what happens when the phone and computer are off, and you're in the real world? 

Ask yourself, do you still feel good about who you are off-line?  Are you still confident when you hear comments and feel judgmental stares from strangers? Do you think confidence and love can be found in a clothing item? Do you know that it’s ok to not be confident every single day? That confidence is something that has to be worked on daily?

Are you looking at bloggers and models as inspiration or people to copy?

Nothing is original.

"Steal from something that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination."-Jim Jarmusch

Let's be honest, we're all inspired by other people's fashion. There's nothing wrong with being inspired,as long as it is not a direct copy, and you're making it your own! I was inspired to wear this neon green kimono, after seeing my friends, Ivory Jinelle, and Candace Nelson, wear their kimonos with pants, and skirts (check out their awesome sites).  Who doesn't like a long train? Are you a fan of the kimono trend?

Summertime Fine

I know my title is cheesy, but admit it, you love it! Anyways, I just got back from my mini vacation in Miami and Orlando, and already I miss it dearly!  Seventy degree weather, drinks, no clothes, and overflowing sunshine! Sigh... I'll get over being back in this weird NYC weather soon  enough. The sun managed to come out the other day, so I put on my best, I-miss-my-vacation-so-I'm-pretending-I'm-still-there, outfit (LOL!).
