Play


Playing with earthiness for a nice comfy Fall look.



TurtleNeck Sweater- Forever 21
Draped Jersey Top- Necessary Clothing (Similiar)
Shearling Vest- Similar
Das Boots- UNIF
Necklace- Handmade in Jamaica

Sharing this quick post of a look I wore some weeks ago that I absolutely loved. I was back to wearing my 6 inch platforms and plying light layers for a cozy look. Earth tones always look so warm and inviting to me so I suppose that's why I naturally fell in love with this combination.

Since it was a bit chilly outside, I wore my turtle neck sweater and layered it with this beautiful draped tunic top that had a cool knot in the front. I usually always go for structured pieces so this tunic top was a pleasant change for me. Every since I bought it, I've been pairing it so many ways...who knew it could be this versatile. To complete the look I threw on some comfy black pants from Zara and the most comfortable vest ever! I chose to style the overall look with complimentary jewelry and my Das Boots from UNIF for a slightly edgy vibe.

Have an awesome weekend!

Portal Of My Soul


Dark, mysterious and Witchy vibe here on the blog today, just in time for the celebration of Halloween. 


Black and White Sweater- Forever 21
Cape- H&M
Pants- Zara

The cape comes out whenever I want to capture a polished look that has the ability to give any outfit that little extra oomph, which is never a bad thing. I'm not all entirely into this whole halloween craze..in fact, I grew up in a culture that never really celebrated halloween so I guess for me the whole dressing up in costume on the 31st isn't quite the norm. However, I must say it can be quite fun to get dressed up and be who ever you want for that one night.

Even though this isn't an actual halloween post, I could definitely see a witchy or vampy inspiration somewhere within this look. I changed things up a bit and wore my cyber Mac lipstick with an all black ensemble, complimented with hints of white. This was actually a look I wore to class that day and it was kind of fun going back to my grunge roots of my early blogging days.
I added the o-ring choker and my draped pyramid necklace for extra effects to drive some interest into the look since,  wearing all black can sometimes come off flat on camera.

Inside In The Outside


The weather in NYC is finally cold so a lot of my coats are coming out of hiding.


Ribbed Sweater- Zara
Coat- Zara
Velvet Skirt- Chicwish
Rings- Vintage

Waking up in the mornings and trying to decide what to wear when the weather is changing isn't quite an easy task for me. However, I usually try not to overthink it and simply just combine pieces that are strong enough to make an interesting statement with the aim of looking effortless (even though it may have taken hours to find something to wear). 
Yes, I'm almost always wearing grey and/or black but, that's mainly because I sometimes get too lazy to think of color especially when I've been working in the studio all night. For this look, I wanted to keep it clean and straightforward with this awesome coat in black,white and grey plaid from Zara. I remember purchasing it last last Fall, I wore it so much and never got tired of it so I may just be wearing it a lot this second time around.

For my base look, I wore a cropped grey sweater with my favourite skater skirt in velvet for a quick and easy Fall attire tied in with a simple touch of jewelry. 
Expect a lot of new looks on the blog, a possible face lift on the site and I'll be hosting an awesome giveaway very soon! I wish you all a wonderful Monday and thanks for visiting :)

No Church In The Wild


One of those days when wearing full head-to-toe black is all I need to get me through the day.


Sweater- Forever 21
Trousers- Zara
Hat- Zara

For this look, I'm slightly channeling a more grunge, almost "no care" side of me. As you can see, I'm wearing zero make-up hence this look was shot on a day I wanted to be laid-back and comfortable without a care in the world. Sometimes I have days such as these, where it's totally okay to dress down a little. I'm wearing one of my favourite sweaters from last fall…the cut-outs at the shoulders make for a great interesting look and that patch cut-out of the cross is golden. 

I chose to pair it with a slouchy trousers and flat oxfords, mainly because it made me feel so comfortable and since it was a little windy the addition of the hat was the perfect touch in tying this overall look together. The fall weather is definitely in full swing now in NY, so expect to see a lot more layering and sweater combinations here the blog.
