My Story

Fashion, shoes and accessories have always my interest. I remember at a very young age being mesmerized in my mother’s closet, and trying on her clothes which quickly became a hobby. While growing up, I regularly traveled to vintage and consignment shops with my mother and grandmother, and quickly became a lover of timeless fashion.  As I grew older I not only enjoyed enhancing my look, but that of others, so the natural fit was to become a Fashion Stylist.

 

My styling has no limits, as I have the right connections and can pull off any look. I love all aspects of fashion and particularly love to mix modern with vintage pieces for a bit of a surprise.  My style is affordable yet classy.  I love mixing high/low fashion and creating out-of-the-box outfits.  I truly believe it does not take a lot of money or designer labels to be well dressed.

 

My goal is to inspire you with what I wear, challenge you to get out of your comfort zone, and help achieve your best look.  This is the best part of my job because if you look great, you feel great!

Be My Valentine

Hello my Loves! I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Valentine’s Day (whether you’re in love or not).  I prefer staying in on Valentine’s Day, but if I were going out to some where fancy I’d choose to wear this vintage dress from Boot & Trunk because it’s perfect for a romantic date.  Truth is, I’ll be at home watching Netflix and chilling, but I really needed an excuse to wear this gorgeous dress. lol. Whatever you choose to do today, I hope your day is filled with so much love that your cup runneth over.  Always remember to love you first, and if no one has told you they love you, I’ll be the first to do so.  I love you!   Photography by: Sharon Bui What I’m Wearing: // Vintage Dress // Boot & Trunk // Clutch // Vintage (old) // Iridescent Lock and Key Pump (Tahnee) // ShoeDazzle   Love, The Ultimate...

Muff Mania

Happy Friday everyone! It’s been several weeks since my last blog post and I’m finally back after a short hiatus.  Sometimes it’s just good to pause from social media and reenergize.  Today I’m providing vintage style inspiration for my favorite winter accessory, to deal with the chilly weather we’ve been experiencing lately. This handy cold weather accessory, called a “muff” is classic, fun, and functional.  The muff has been around for quite some time, and serves as both a hand warmer and purse all in one.  I love how easy it is to slip my hands into one for a quick warm up.  Additionally, most vintage muffs have a zipper inside making them convenient for holding small important items us ladies just can’t live without. Muffs are available in all types of patterns and textures, which further add to their character.  As you can see, I’m wearing my favorite leopard pattern, but I also adore a gorgeous fur style as well.  Do you currently own a muff?  If not, would you consider wearing one?  Hopefully I’ve opened up the idea of adding this classic accessory to your wardrobe. Have a great weekend and stay stylish babes!

Celebrating the 110th Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Founders’ Day with Amazing Grace Etiquette

Greetings Loves, Last Saturday, I had the absolute honor of modeling in an elegant Hat Fashion Show to celebrate the 110th Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Founders’ Day.  January 15 is officially the day that their Founders put a vision into reality and organized Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated.  The fashion show was hosted by Corbett Modeling Group, which is part of Amazing Grace Etiquette based in Raleigh, NC at Brier Creek Country Club. Amazing Grace Etiquette is spearheaded by Dr. Donna Corbett, and its mission is to provide innovative etiquette education to adults and children throughout the Triangle area.  These qualities are essential to social development of youths and adults; however, often appear to have been forgotten and ignored in this century.  Dr. Corbett’s background includes twenty years of corporate experience, and over a decade of experience in etiquette education and modeling arenas.  She has embraced her calling to be a powerful force in the Triangle community! Each model graced the runway wearing the finest hats dating from 1962 to 2017 from The Mary E. Corbett Hat Collection.  Ms. Mary E. Corbett, Donna’s mother, is a woman who adores hats and has a collection of over 300!  The Hat Fashion Show is elegance at it’s best!  It’s perfect for ladies’ teas, fundraisers, birthday celebrations, or any type of event where you would like to add class and pizzazz. It was a treat to be in the presence of such a beautiful group of empowering ladies.  As a woman, vintage connoisseur and hat collector, this day was simply a dream come true! Love, The Ultimate...
