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.

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


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!

Party in the front, business in the back

Hi Lo dresses and skirts are you the best of both worlds!  It allows you to show a little leg in the front, but gives you more coverage in the back, giving the stunning effect of a maxi.  I absolutely love hi lo, because I always play with short hemlines, so hi lo allows me to go short while also having a conservative edge.  I also love the full length of maxis, making hi lo a combination of two of my normally conflicting styles.

love the glistening champagne fabric combined with the geometric necklace

So yes, it’s true, Hunger Games has completely taken over my life.  So as a tribute (ha) to Katniss Everdeen I am dedicating a post to her signature look, a braid.  A braid is the perfect way to deal with unruly hair, is always on trend, and easy to integrate into any do.
