I do not even remember where I was the day I decided to refer to myself as a “Shopaholic” but the name definitely stuck! I do know that this title means something to me. Shopping is not an addiction. It is an experience. I have wanted to wear my title for quite some time. I have figuratively worn this hat proudly for the last few years. I finally thought it was time to create something physical.
The first thing I did was create the logo. I was inspired by the Supreme brand and everything that it stands for. I didn’t want it to be exactly the same but still noticeable. I found an unworn champion hoodie in my styling trunk and decided to give it a test run. I created three other looks and shared the mock up on my social media platforms. I new the neon combo would not be for the faint-of-heart and originally wanted it to be one of a kind.
A friend of mine was in town this past weekend and hosted a networking event and I decided to attend. I could not wait to wear my new sweatshirt especially since the weather was hinting of rain. I paired it with my American Eagle distressed jeans and my pink Aldo pumps.
The look was a hit and all of a sudden everyone wanted the same hoodie. One rule of business that I always follow is to give the people what they want. I hate it when people make something that can’t be duplicated. I really love all the shopaholics that have stuck by me over the years and want to make sure I can give them what they want.
I have already began to fulfill orders and can’t wait until all of the supplies are in so I can begin to ship them out. I am really excited about this new business venture an even more thrilled to show you guys what’s coming next.
The Fashion 500 awards is an event that honors creatives in the fashion and beauty industry. I have attended for the past three years and each year it just gets better and better. The Fashion 500 has a very specific dress code and it is not your everyday casual party. You are supposed to dress to impress and if you don’t comply you probably won’t get in.
I don’t ever know what to wear. I spend a lot of time dressing other people and sometimes I forget to dress myself as well. I knew I didn’t want to purchase anything new and began shuffling through my closet. Revisiting old pieces and sharing them in a different way can maximize your wardrobe in he best way.
I picked up this vintage sequin dress a few years ago at one of my favorite thrift stores in lower Manhattan. I went a little vintage with the entire look and paired the dress with a wavy, wet-set bun and a bold red lip.
I live for texture and print so this look was no different! The sequins glistened in the night and I received compliments all night. Often times when it comes to dressing for an event or party you don’t need a new dress just a new perspective.
I dressed up the look with simple accessories. I stacked my fancy Kouture bracelets and rings with black and gold purse from Aldo and matching booties with a chunky gold heel. I really had a great time at the fashion 500 event. It always warms my heart to see people in my field being celebrated! I want everyone to win! I hope you guys had a great weekend and are ready to take on this new week in the new month of May! Happy Shopping!
The final look from my Victoria Beckham and Target collaboration is this sweet little pink sheath dress. I am a girly girl at heart and pink is my favorite color. I am a sucker for this piece because it satisfies my need for bold color and classic silhouettes.
I love layering dresses over long sleeved blouses. I think it gives the Valentino vibe. I chose a white top to highlight the accent white piping along the bottom of the dress. Layering a dress over a blouse or t-shirt is super trendy right now. I still view this style of dressing as timeless.
I had a little fun with this look and didn’t take the pairing too seriously by adding a printed wedge. I would definitely wear this outfit to a weekend brunch or business meeting in the spring and summer. I let my hair down and smiled like no one was watching.
Since my Steve Madden wedges were pretty in-your-face I decided to keep the rest of the look simple with a matching H&M necklace and simple black shades. The sunny day was perfect for a day of New York City street style.
I loved doing this Target style series and I hope you enjoyed the looks that I shared with you so far. I would love to do more style stories and I am currently planning the next one as I am writing this! I would love it if all of my readers would subscribe to stay up-to-date on all of my future posts. Until next time… happy shopping.
