Today as I headed out to run some adult errands, I wanted to look trendy but professional. I thought the red peplum tiered skirt, that’s been getting no action, would be a good starting point. This is what I came up with…
I love these peplum-influenced designs from the Resort 2013 shows:
The peplum parade continued on the Fall 2012 Couture runways:
Whether it’s a peplum blouse, jacket, skirt or dress, here’s how you can incorporate the trend for under $100!
Together or separate, you decide what works for you, but the drant (or dress-over-pant) is not going away any time soon.
We saw these back in February 2012 at New York Fashion Week:
Then again on the Resort 2013 runways:
So it should come as no surprise that the dresses over pants made yet another appearance on the Fall 2012 Couture runway. With the long anticipated collection from Raf Simons, Christian Dior’s Fall 2012 Couture show in Paris certainly showcased elements of the trend:
Still not convinced? Think of it as a long tunic over leggings or pants.
So what will it be for you; together or separate?
So today I have my first interview for an article that I will be writing for Carolina STYLE Magazine!!! I am responsible for writing the make-up artist feature for July, and have the honor of spending my Monday with Charlene Kongolo, whose work you can see here: http://www.charlyko.com/. Being that this is my first official assignment for the magazine, I have a whirlwind of thoughts and feelings going through my head. Thankfully I put my outfit together last night, relieving some of the pressure from today!
What do you think?

I am not an American but this is a country that I have called “home” for 6 years, and will probably continue to do so for many more years to come. Having assimilated to the culture, I have decided that the 4th of July or Independence Day, is my favorite adopted holiday. From the food to the fireworks, the gathering of friends and family, to the warm July weather…it’s a day that embodies some of my favorite things about life.
How do you like to celebrate this day?
If you haven’t quite put your outfit together yet, here are few of my favs to help inspire you….
Enjoy :) and Happy Birthday America.
So I am officially a part of the STYLE team at Carolina STYLE Magazine! I’ll be contributing to the Fashion, Beauty and Events departments! I am so thankful and excited!
My husband ran out and bought some champs as soon as I got the news and we had a mini celebration!
I have already received some of my assignments and will be busy working on those, but will keep you all posted on where to see the features, and will of course, be posting as usual on my blog. Stay tuned!
Remember when I told you in my post “Stylin’ Summer” that hats are the most essential accessory for summer 2012?
Whether you’re hiding from the harmful UV rays that are beaming down, or the flashes of the paparazzi’s cameras, this summer you need to hat-cessorize!
These pictures are from a photo shoot I did in Amsterdam back in February 2010 with the amazing and talented photographer based out of Istanbul, Dilara Gürcü.

Whether it’s eggshell, champagne, magnolia, ivory, or meringue, one thing is for sure, white is HOT…right meow!
These are from my photo shoot yesterday with photographer J.J. McDaniel, who also happens to be my husband. Follow him on Instagram @jamcdaniel and me @trkshdlt
Here’s how some of the designers incorporated white into their collections:

My birthday is in exactly a month from today. That’s July 24th for those of you who, like me, have trouble remembering what the date is.
Anyway, I thought I would take this opportunity to put together my birthday wish list :)
Be sure to check back to see what I actually do get for my birthday.
