The Big, The Bad, And The Bloat

Imagine this, you're getting dressed for a night out with your friends, or meeting your SO's family for the first time. You want to make a good impression for whatever the situation may be, you reach for that winning dress that you found at Free People, you put it on and then glide over to your full length mirror and see IT! It being your bloated belly, it happens and at the most inconvenient times. Whenever I am bloated, I feel like the grossest person in the world! It has a way of making you feel really uncomfortable. Fortunately, bloating is avoidable!


Summer Daze

It's the middle of summer here and in the eastern region of the USA, that means sky rocketing temperatures and humidity included. From sweating your makeup off to the horrible arm pit stains that creep up on you when you're wearing your favorite silk shirt, it's the essence of summer! Keeping layers super simple is of the utmost importance when it's 95 degrees, thats why having easy pieces to throw on and go is a wardrobe staple. Especially when your SO surprises you with a weekend trip to the south!


Beauty Bit, Face Framing

One might say that eyebrows are having a moment right now. I would agree to disagree, eyebrows have always been a main part of beauty history, dating back to Nefertiti. Since 1360s BC women have been pronouncing their eyebrows as part of their beauty rituals, it's no different than what the women of today are doing. I believe that eyebrows are the main feature to frame a face. Tweeze a bit here, wax a bit there and you can create a very unique look.


100 Years of (Men's) Fashion

I talk a lot about women's fashion because it's just so relevant to me, but I must admit that there's something about men's fashion that I love too. Men's fashion, as of late, has been quite unisex, since the early 2000's the "tomboy" chic style has been pretty popular. It's definitely favorable with me, from boyfriend jeans to moto jackets, skinny ties to oversized blazers. With the right pieces you can create the most tasteful tomboy look, it's an adjective that I would use to describe my personal style. As a young lass, It was just me and my brother, so many of my influences stemmed from him. I guess you could call it a natural instinct! Mode Fashion, which brought you a look through the century of fashion's past in three minutes has given us another look down memory lane, this time with men's fashion!


Born To Be Wild

It was an unlikely day in Philly recently, the weather was actually nice and cooler than it usually is during the summer. I took advantage of this day by wearing jeans! I know it doesn't seem like much but with high humidity and temperatures, jeans tend to feel like second skin which is why this day was an anamoly!  I usually stick to lighter fabrics like linen, polyester blends, cottons and sometimes silk. Rather than plain ol' jeans I took it a bit further!
