How to Style?!

 

So there are all of these trends out here but a lot of us have issues styling them, so I will be starting a series called, “How to Style?!” where I will create collages of how these items can be styled.

I will also include links of where you can purchase these items.

Most will be items I can find for you at Trunk Club and if sold out, I will have a backup plan for you.😉

These are considered the pointy toe with the chunky heel. I think this trend will be a classic shoe that you can have for years and years to come. This shoe gives a vintage feel with a modern day twist.

Where Have You Been?

I know that a lot of you are probably wondering that. I took a job in May that changed my life in many, many ways. I was starting to work more than I could remember. I became a Wardrobe Stylist with Trunk Club  which is a full-time, if not all of the time type of job. I am constantly communicating with clients in the DC area and clients all over the United States.

It’s pretty crazy how many people I talk to on a daily, weekly basis.

But I do plan to post more fashion posts that make sense with current fashion since I’m looking at clothes just about every day. I should use that inspiration for my own blog posts, so I’ll be back!🙂

What have you guys been up to?

Day in the Life from 4.20

I occasionally can’t figure out how I do so much in a 24 hour day. I wanted to take you guys into my world on some of my days off.

This particular day started at about 5am to be exact. It was a Daybreakers kind of morning. I attended the event with Morgan of AsItHappens It took place at cafe Asia this go round. We had a good amount of space in here which was nice. We started out with Yoga and then it turned into a dance party with cool visuals on the wall, neon lights, a dope DJ, and a hula hooper.

Trunk Club One on One

You all probably saw the group Trunk Club DC post of when I went to see Tippi at Trunk Club. I had the chance to create a trunk with Tippi. I started out with creating a profile of what my style is and what brands I tend to shop. They also ask your shoe size, clothing size, and pant size. It’s very detailed so the stylist can be sure to choose the items closest to your size. Tippi then took this information and picked various pieces for me including shoes. I was very pleased with what she chose me. Some were some pieces I might’ve never gone for on my own.

I took my trunk to meet Tippi at the trunk club. The cool thing about this is that you have the option to try everything ok at home and keep what you would like to pu chase and send back hate de didn’t quite work out. Going in is cool because your greeted and asked what you would like to drink during your styling session. Very comfortable environment. Continue reading

Smile for Me Baby

 …Let me see ya grill. The only issue with this picture is that I never recieved my Grillz. I decided to take it to the Internet early February for Grillz. I found what I thought at the time was a credible site. I call the phone number on the website and a gentlemen answers. We set up a time and place to meet at one of his 3 or 4 offices. DC was most convenient for me. I get to the office on time and here he comes maybe 20 minutes later. I had a gut feeling to just call it a quits but I wanted these Grillz for my birthday party.  Continue reading

DYBRKR 3.23.2016 is Coming!!!

 

If you all haven’t seen, I’m a huge fan of Daybreaker. I love how they came up with a concept to do yoga and then party afterwards all before 9am. So be sure to get some rest the night before. The yoga is some of the best yoga I’ve ever done and you feel amazing afterwards. They have tons of snacks and healthy drinks to keep your energy up and you feeling food. The dancing is my favorite part, of course. The DJ spins high energy music, live musicians, and the MC Haile Supreme keeps everyone active. I have included deets below about how you can participate in something like you’ve never done before.

DC Eats: Republic

When friends are in town, what do we do? We go out to eat and drink as much as we can while catching up about life. We had a place in mind to do happy hour but the happy hour wasn’t right and the vibes weren’t right either. So, we made our way to Republic. I’ve probably been to this place 4 or 5 times but I figured by this point, it was time to add them to my blog. Continue reading
