Pattern Play

Hey Guys!
I guess I spoke too soon about Old Man Winter and his games. haha. Weather in the DMV made its way up to 64° yesterday!! And I tell you man people see a little sun and bring back their summer clothes lol. Shorts, flip flops and long sleeve shirts are not my style. I decided to bring out a little vintage treasure to celebrate such amazing weather. I traveled to the best neighborhood in town to find the best finds. This printed floral blazer spoke words to me when I saw it and it had to come home with momma!

I matched this little beauty with a cream and black chiffon blouse, a basic pair of leggings and my Isabel Marant inspired wedge sneakers. And on my hip, my favorite Betsey Johnson Satchel!

Winter’s coming but I ain't mad at these nice days we are having. Me and my closet appreciate it!

Falling for the Fall!

Hey Lovies!

Looks like Old Man Winter is trying to break up such a beautiful fall with all of this icy cold weather we are having here in the DMV. But I refuse to let him or any bad weather ruin my favorite time to play dress up. Fall is the best season because you can play around with so many layers and so many colors!

I was able to catch a glimpse of sunlight this afternoon and I decided to throw a few prints together to run errands. Without being too daring I paired a mid-sleeve striped peplum with a polka dotted blazer that I thrifted a few months back from the Goodwill. For my lower half I threw on a pair of Jersey leggings and my favorite combat boots. As an added accessory I wore my new favorite tube scarf from H & Ms fall collection.

Hopefully us fashion lovers get at least a few more months out of this fall weather because I know my closet is just jumping with so many fall prints and colors that are all waiting to be worn!

Outfit details can be found below;)

Power Circle (DMV Power Meet and Greet)

Hello Again!

This past Saturday I attended my first meet and greet at the San Antonio Grill and Bar in Alexandria, VA. The event was hosted by Brandie (Lashesandstilettos on IG) and Tori (Kokoapearls on IG) two of my favorite plus size fashion idols. When I saw the meet and greet details on Instagram, I had to push the shy feelings to the side and come out and meet them and all the other lovely ladies in the DMV who we fashion bugs like myself. Plus I’m always game for happy hour!!!

Amoungst the hundreds of fly pieces I had in my closet I didn’t want to over do it and at the same time I didn’t want to be too cliche. Now anybody who knows me knows I'm such a last minute person I picked out the first thing I saw which was this simple black and white skater dress. To dress it up and give it the Toni Lakeysha stamp of approval I paired the dress with my favorite royal blue pointy toe heels a black waist belt and my favorite chunky braclets!

I commited my self to trying to break out of my shell and meet new people and i must say I never met a better group of girls. I was able to take so much from their conversations and I look forward to learning more from these ladies.

Here's a few shots from the DMV Power Meet and Greet!
