The Only Sweater Dress You Need This Fall

The Only Sweater Dress You Need this Fall: Featuring a white v-neck sweater dress with turtle buttons down the front, turtle-print geometric drop earrings, and brown pumps

Sometimes with clothing, it’s love at first sight. You try on a dress, or slide your foot into a shoe, and you know immediately that you’re going home together. That feeling is exactly why I can never let go of in person shopping (and also because I never remember to return things.) I was actually at the store looking for cute pajamas when I found this sweater dress and immediately had to have it. Love always finds you when you’re not looking for it! read more

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

Tracing My Style Evolution

Tracing My Style Evolution: Featuring three looks from my 25th birthday and past years

My style has always been pretty eclectic. I’ve loved dressing up since I was a little girl (my favorite game was playing Princesses) and had unique tastes. Over the years, my style has been punk, Japanese gyaru, Japanese rock street style, urban, almost anything you could think of. Since I just turned 25 over the weekend, I thought it’d be fun to compare my style back then to trace my style’s evolution. I know you’re just here for the embarrassing past pictures, don’t worry. read more

Redefining the Creative

Redefining the Creative: Featuring a white chiffon crop top with bell sleeves and drawstring detailing, dark denim high waist shorts and oversized silver hoops

So a few weeks ago, I went to a DC: District Creatives happy hour. I didn’t really know what to expect, but that was the reason I joined the group. Their description was vague: “A collaborative community of like-minded professionals and innovators.” They didn’t have a strict definition for who a creative was. As someone who often feels like my hobbies are on the fringe of being creative, I was hoping to sneak in using this ambiguity. Bloggers get reduced down to “person obsessed with social media” and coders are often viewed as robots. Neither is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of creativity. 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
