Making a Statement: The Latest Sunglasses Trend

Making a statement: Featuring cat eye sunglasses paired with a white tee, red beret, and a plaid mini skirt

Ah, spring. Another change of season that brings along with it new trends for me to buy. This past weekend, I visited the Hirshhorn Museum‘s exhibit Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s. It was a last minute decision based on the cherry blossom peak bloom’s postponement. My trendy spring outfit for that post was not suited for the decidedly not-spring weather, so only one item made it in–these cat eye statement sunglasses. read more

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

February 22-28th marked 2018 DC Fashion Week. I’ve only been to one other fashion show in my life. It was seven years ago, and I had come all the way across PA to watch my sister’s Senior Showcase in Philadelphia. I had done a good bit of sewing my own designs at that point, but it was nothing compared to what I saw. My sister’s collection was Afroglam to the fullest, featuring ankara fabrics before wearing daishikis became trendy. The evening of the show, I helped her into a leather mermaid dress and watched her and her friends in awe. After years of watching shows like America’s Next Top Model through the screen, the runway experience had come to life. read more

Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party

Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party: Featuring a midi-length wine velvet pephem dress and gold chrome pumps

So I love going to my office’s holiday party. It’s pretty much all of my favorite things–dressing up, free food, free drinks, and dancing! However, dressing for the office holiday party isn’t always easy. My first year, I spent weeks scouring the internet and local stores for the perfect dress. I didn’t want to be overdressed and stand out in a bad way, but being under-dressed is right up there with spiders and two-headed animal crackers on my List of Things I Hate. I felt like my only option was to get it right the first time. read more

How I Spiced Up Business Casual

A professional wardrobe is where style goes to die.

Okay, not really, but that was definitely how I felt leaving school. I’ve always been into street style, and I spent most of college in giant gold hoops and jeans. Nothing about my style felt transferable to a business wardrobe, and as someone’s whose style is very near and dear to their heart, giving it up felt terrifying. I wasn’t meant for black pantsuits with a sensible heel. The Man was trying to smother my individuality! Wake up people! read more
