classic black

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all black says this: "I don’t bother you - don’t bother me".” -Yohji Yamamoto

This quote resonates with me so much when I get dressed most mornings. Although I do embrace color, most of my staple pieces that last season after season are the colorless pieces. In my opinion, black is the most powerful color and the most empowering color. It's sexy, it's sleek, and the bonus is- it's the easiest color to style. On this day, I had an important meeting and wanted to look polished yet still casual. For me, the winning combo is always skinny jeans + oversized blazer + classic pumps. It's effortless yet you always look put together.

pink cadillac

This look has absolutely nothing to do with Cadillacs, I just had that Bruce Springsteen song in my head. Which I haven't heard in forever so I don't even know why. Anyways, you guys! I'm wearing a little pink dress! gasp! This dress is so out of my character but after I chucked on my leather jacket and black ankle boots I felt right at home. There's always a way to put your spin on a garment you wouldn't usually wear. Just add the right accessories and don't be afraid to experiment!
