Black History Month Lookbook

Hello my loves! We will soon be transitioning into March as if January didn’t feel like an eternity and February only felt like a couple days. But nevertheless, I have been keeping busy with sewing and I am so proud to reveal what I had been keeping under lock and key for so long. I had made a vow to myself to push the boundaries of … Continue reading Black History Month Lookbook

What I’ve Been Up To

Over the span of the end of my senior year, throughout the summer, and my first semester of college, I have been quite busy.

Aw October. The month of when the weather begins to get colder and the color of leaves begin to change. Sweaters begin to come, fall eyeshadow and lipsticks begin to come back out, leg warmers of all colors are being tucked in boots, and scarfs are being worn more often- around the neck and head. All in all, the season of fall is spectacular. And … Continue reading Homecoming 2k16

MJ- You Scoundrel.

Hello my loves! Today, I am doing something different. Instead of talking about something I’ve made, I have decided to talk about news in the world of fashion. As everyone should know, New York Fashion Week started September 7th and ended September 15th.
