I was looking for a look not too far from my normal vibe. I really wanted the oversized/baggy look that is trending for fall. I found myself in husbands closet.
My husband’s closet doesn’t get the attention it deserves. He has structured shirts, warm sweaters and long blazers in his closet. This haul was so much fun that I ended creating 3 looks. Thanks to #FashionWeeks across the world oversized is the new fit.
His Hoodie – as an off the shoulder dress and a pair of ankle boot.
His Suit – As a suit with a bodysuit under in case I wanted an off the shoulder look. The pants I secured with a belt. Handbag is a custom #SBDesign
His Button down – Over a bodysuit, a pair of distressed jeans and a snake print sole clear strap sandal from @j0couture
Don’t forget the layered necklaces and a pair of chic sunglasses to complete your looks.
I had so much fun with this experience I encourage my readers to modify the tips and tricks above to best fit their fashion needs. Tag me in your social media post ❤
From my styling closet in Skokie, Il I sat with a glass of my favorite wine to watch a weeks worth of N.Y.F.W shows but don’t feel bad for me I enjoyed every second of it!
Big thanks to NYFW All Access App for giving me all the footage of the shows and to the amazing Claire Sulmers at fashionbombdaily who made me feel like I was in them New York streets as I watched her LIVE via Instagram throughout the shows.
Here’s some of my absolute favorites from this week’s shows that promoted boss babe vibes, inclusivity and body positivity as always I love to hear your feedback and keeps me going.
Pearls everywhere for fall I am borderline obsessed with adding them into my everyday looks. So, I pulled mine out of my jewelry box to think of ways to update my grandmas pearls and give them my #ExtraAF vibe.
The string of pearl you have been holding to all these years meets a gold rope chain and a jeweled necklace for that layered look.
I mean there isn’t anything wrong with the pearl studs that sit in your jewelry box but why not add some #ExtraAF vibes with drop pearl earrings?
With cooler temps around the corner in Chicago, Fashion lovers are beginning to think about their fall wardrobe. To help ease the fall I put together these key pieces that will transition any closet from summer into fall.

Last night I attended the grand opening for Borris Powell retail location at 216 S. Jefferson in Chicago. It is located on a great street with plenty of parking 👏and it is in amazing retail space with big store front windows that proudly display mannequins dripped in Borris Powell. I fell in love with Borris Powell all over again as soon as I stepped foot into his space.
I was able to chat for a few hours about patterns, garments, sequins and he shared details of his up coming projects. He will be headed to Omaha on 8.21 to show a small teaser collection on 8.22 and headlining their finale show on 8.24. Then a shopping event on 8.25. Chicago will have yet another chance to show love and support on 10.20 for his last show of the year titled BorN 1920. You can find more details http://www.BorrisPowell.com
