I’m having a Carrie Bradshaw moment, that’s if she was a married woman living in suburbia Chicago with 4 kids 2 dogs, and 2 cats. I recently wrote a piece for Ms.Heel Magazine which they published along with my style guide for their Mothers Day issue.
I can officially say that I am a published writer! Beyond proud of myself. Please take a minute to read 🥰
Mander Jewelry is a company out of New York they create handmade fine jewelry for both men and women. Recently, the company reached out to me on instagram for a collaboration. I couldn’t resist styling their sleek inventory. I do love that all the materials that they use to produce their jewelry is sourced from conflict free environments according to their website. Feel free to browse their inventory at www.manderjewelry.com
For our collaboration I created a lookbook for both men and women using their jewelry.
With the extra time i’ve had on my hands recently I found the need to pass my time by joining in on the #PillowChallenge I’ve seen across Instagram pages like Harper’s Bazaar Thailand and ANTM winner Jaslene Gonzalez.
Here is my take on the Pillow Challenge with little dash of me and a sprinkle of #ExtraAf with a pillow, tulle and heels to complete my look titled ” Quarantine Ball #StyledxSB. Believe that this was my top choice from the 2 looks I created.
How do you think I did? Leave your feedback in the comments or on IG. Tag me in your social media pics of your “Quarantine Ball” lewks use the #QBStyledxSB so I can repost my favorites.
Since working from home seems to be the new normal for most individuals these past couple of weeks, I put together some comfy work from home outfits that are sure to make you feel chic. The first week you were probably extremely excited to be at home working in your pj’s this week, but you might need some help navigating this new normal of comfy chic we all find ourselves in. If you are like me then at times you find yourself wondering why should I even get dressed. I have found that: getting dressed, putting minimal makeup on, or even just brushing my hair puts me in a boss bitch mode. whenever I’m in that mode I typically get a lot of shiii done. Try these tips and tricks and I promise it could help with your mental health, make you feel more confident, and you will get shi done.
It doesn’t take much effort but a pretty top, highlight, chapstick, and a messy bun are at the top of my list when working from home. In the event that you have to facetime with a client you are more than prepared, at least from the waist up. You can incorporate a comfy harem pant or legging to complete your look. I can’t believe im saying this but here is when shoes are definitely optional unless you have to step outside which at that point it is totally up to you.
What to wear today is probably last on your mind with all the problems in the world but this is my hustle and I’ll be here to help you look as chic as possible through it all. I know I am super vain but we all have that one friend 🙂
Last week while I looked over my DM’s there was a fashion emergency that required my full attention. My fabulous friend and client Alexis was in need of a pair of red boots or booties. I looked in my SB Styling Closet for any shoes in her size. I only had a clear shoe and a gold pair of lace-up thigh highs boots as her options. I offered a SB revamp on the gold boots to make them match her costume for her fashion competition.
I took some very simple items and added some SB Majik to an old pair of gold boots to create some kick-ass fukn boots that sparkle so nice!!! Turned it into a d.i.y bih, what more do you want.
side note: boots are for one show and not for everyday wear.
Heres what youll need:
spray adhesive or gorilla glue
blue painters tape
steel wool medium grade
Protective gloves (recommended)
New laces – I used 2 – 5 yard metallic trim from Hobby Lobby
Start by scuffing the entire boot with the steel wool. Then tape off any hardware or areas that you do not want to paint. Hang your boots in a well-ventilated area and begin to spray them. Once they are painted wait 23-36 hours for the paint to dry. Once dry remove the blue tape and glue down rhinestones. Let sit for another 2-4 hours. Once dry lace up and enjoy your new babies.
Revamped a pair lately? or do you a have a suggestion for what my next d.i.y should be? Drop a comment here our on my IG
