Classic Stripes

The unbeatable, classic, eye-catching black and white combination has taken over my blog this spring/summer and I am OK with it.  The fusion of these opposites has a stark breathtaking effect, which looks different depending on how you rock it allowing you to really make this combo your own.  Stripes are a sartorial staple this spring/summer channeling a preppy nautical vibe that can have a hint of edge depending on how you you style it.  Not surprisingly, I opted for edge over prep for the G.L.A.M. Charity Fashion Event benefiting Safe Shores DC.  For the second annual G.L.A.M. charity fashion event that I planned and hosted with my G.L.A.M. partner District Sparkle’s Meaghan, I turned to my favorite “trends” black and white, stripes, a figure accentuating body con dress and a pop of neon.  When dressing for any occasion comfort and attitude is key, which is why I turned to my trusty favs.  Always remember the clothes aren’t wearing you, you are wearing the clothes and let your personality and confidence shine through.

Braids

It’s hard to tell because my hair is so dark, but I used a french braid to secure this side do

Neon

I could not be more obsessed with these shoes! They are the perfect statement piece for any look and I love the pop of neon that glows in the dark!
