This dress was one of the items sent for review by CowCow and I chose it because of the phenomenal print, but the cut was something I wanted to test out because it isn't typically what one would deem the most "flattering" for my shape. Skater dresses are usually a fail safe and this reversible "skater" only has a slight flare; the flare also starts much lower than the standard skater but not low enough to be considered a drop waist. Needless to say I was intrigued. 

You might also be wondering why I chose this print, even why I felt it necessary to put a long sleeve under a jacket in the middle of summer. To be honest the first time I laid eyes on this print what came to mind was that song wild horses by "The Sundays", you know from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer soundtrack? That was an incredible album man, I truly miss those days and that kind of music. I added the long sleeve because I wanted so badly to have a peek of a rust color below the scrunch of the jacket sleeves.

So here we have it, a lightweight denim jacket with sweatshirt sleeves on top of a  dress that's on top of a rust colored long sleeve.....let's not forget the over the knee faux suede boots. Yep folks, that's me, fashion over function most all of the time. 


I know, I's hot out, even with fall looming around the corner (in the best way possible), it's still balmy AF. But I've said it once and I'll say it again; I'm that person who complains about the heat and refuses to let that change my outfit plans and/or allow me to peel pieces of my outfit away just to fulfill my comfort "needs". 

As for how the dress worked out; truthfully I'm not too keen on the cut but the print is so phenom and I am horrendous at returning things. I also have confidence in finding ways to make things work even when they kinda don't...but do.....but don't.

With this print being super on point and the color palette equally as poppin', the decision to pair it with this mixed medium jacket from "Forevers" (Forever21)... just came easy. 


Autumnal feels all the way.

I don't know about you but I am waiting impatiently for Fall to officially hit so I can delve deeper into my jacket collection. I HATE the summer and my denial is so "vivid and true in color" that I WILL in fact wear shit that is not in season because I said so, because I refuse to play this game with Summer.   


With the song wild horses on the brain, I was almost certain I would name this post "Wild horses", but  while editing all I had in heavy rotation was a long list of trap music...because though the other song was the original choice, and although alternative music is life, my heart bleeds all forms of Hip Hop/Trap again here we are.


"See the look on my face (woo!)
Like Carol City one state

'Til I went the first round
Then I earnt the Lombardi
Ain't no fuckboys allowed..."

Statement Sweaters.

Out of all of the seasons I think it's safe to say that Fall is definitely the best time of the year. To me it's a time to express yourself style-wise even more so than any other season. The sad part though, is the fact that it seems to last for just a few seconds in comparison to its horrible counterparts (Summer & Winter).

Before you can even enjoy Fall for all its glory, winter comes in like the ice cold heartless Bishhh that she is and shatters any attempt at looking cute. 

Thankfully though, the times of winter fashion has changed and we're seeing a lot more of our basic winter essential infused with a healthy dose of style. I for one am a huge fan of the fact that clothing stores are being so accommodating to the fact that I still want to look good during the "Frostbite" season. 

This season is typically about Function over Fashion so when I started to see more affordable and stylish sweaters hit the scene, I went H.A.M online and scooped up a bunch.

 I will be growing my collection of fabulosity and you will be seeing me in more statement sweaters throughout this season, because come on...who can can resist the opportunity to look good effortlessly during a season that doesn't entirely let you do that? 

Below are some of my favorite sweaters that I will be rocking religiously this upcoming season.

  1. Top Left: Merona Black/White Dot sweater from $29.99
  2. Top Right: Quirky Sequined Mustache Sweatshirt from Forever21. $24.80
  3. Bottom Left: At The Races Sweatshirt from Forever21. $19.80
  4. Bottom Right: Quirky Dinosaur Sweatshirt from Forever21. $22.80
