3 Fall Trends I’m Crazy For

3 Fall Trends I'm Crazy For: Featuring a fuchsia skirt, white tee, transparent belt bag, and small blackout sunglasses

Summer is coming to a close, and although summer is my favorite season, I’m looking forward to the start of fall and fall’s new trends. It marks the change of seasons the way back-to-school shopping used to do before I graduated. I used to spend hours trying to decide what I was going to wear on the first day of school—you had to stunt as hard as possible to set yourself up for the rest of the school year. And even though there isn’t a day like that in the working world, you can still stunt on your coworkers with these three fall trends. read more

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
