Womanista Fashion: The Denim Jacket

_F_68347

I love Los Angeles, and there is something so cool about the breezy fashion in that city. People dress so chic, but remarkably comfortable! It’s like everyone decided that they all want to look good without trying too hard, ha (my kind of people!) So it’s the perfect environment to wear a denim jacket. I […]

Womanista Fashion: The Weekender

Weekender 1

I love a casual-cool weekend wardrobe, especially when it involves a soft flannel shirt, a cool jacket, and messy hair! I picked up this Current/Elliott cropped denim jacket from Haven a few years ago and I’ve worn the HECK out of it. It’s such an easy piece to throw on over anything, really…and it immediately adds […]

Womanista Fashion: Embellished Slouch

womanista-68

This evening look is probably one of my faves ever for two reasons: 1) I’ve never met an embellishment or an animal print that I didn’t like and 2) these slouchy pants basically feel like pajamas that are dressed up for evening (genius!) But seriously. THEY ARE SO CUTE AND COMFORTABLE! And wearable. Did I […]

Womanista Fashion: Cozy Layers

womanista-23

I absolutely love to layer my look during the fall season. This look mixes lots of pattern & texture, but each piece is rooted in the same color palette so it works. Plus, you are always prepared for a temperature change when you rock a few layers! It’s a fun, cozy weekend look as the weather […]

Ready for Takeoff…

lady antebellum 747

Lord have mercy, I am thankful today. Lady A’s fifth studio album, 747, is out today…And y’all, it is so dang good. One thing that (to me) is the mark of great music is the way that it moves you. The way that it creates a memory and timestamps a moment. I am so thankful […]

Womanista Fashion: Floppy Hats

FloppyHat_Collage

One thing that is so fun about fall fashion is all of the FAB accessories! And a chic hat has to be my fave of the bunch. I hear a lot of people say “but I don’t look good in hats so I’m not a hat person…” and I totally used to think that about […]

Womanista Fashion: Golden Texture

SBT_Cassie-11

Now that fall is *almost* upon us (chilly air, football, and pumpkin spice lattes, anyone??) let’s talk texture. I’m mildly obsessed (ok, not so mildly…) with mixing cozy, soft, warm textures. I wore this look to Day 2 of New York Fashion week and I mixed an ALASDAIR NY boxy wool tunic (the shape is so […]

Womanista Fashion: Modern City Girl

tibi skirt 1

I love femininity. And I love modern. And I love edgy. So when the mix of those three comes together in an easy, wearable ensemble…I’m obsessed! This ballet pink midi skirt from Tibi is a showstopper, but if you add anything else sweet & girly to it, you will look like you are going to […]

Womanista Fashion: The Jumpsuit

SBT_Cassie-54

I never thought I would be a jumpsuit convert (I am. And maybe even a jumpsuit addict at this point.) When I saw this one from Pedro Del Hierro Madrid I was IN.LOVE. Truly-Madly-Deeply. It’s chic & elegant but also sexy and it fits like a glove! The front low v neck is obviously glam, […]

Womanista Fashion: Stars + Chiffon

valentino shorts 2

I love wardrobe pieces with a little bit of whimsy. I spotted these Red Valentino shorts the other day and fell.in.love. I paired them with an equally whimsical and flirty blouse from LEONA New York (if you haven’t discovered LEONA yet – you will loooove the entire collection!), some white textured pumps and a studded clutch. This […]

I love online shopping. I love shopping in general, but it’s really fun when you can shop at a boutique across the Atlantic Ocean or design your own custom throw pillow, all while sipping coffee in your living room. Online retailers have made discovering chic global brands as easy as a few strokes on your […]

Fall-Must-Haves_2014_JPEG

In case you missed my last post (shoes on sale NOW that you can still wear in the fall! You should read it…), I mentioned that this is a weird shopping time of year. Summer stuff is pretty much sold out in stores, but new fall merchandise is trickling in at a slow pace (and […]

Carlee shoe

It’s one of those weird times of the year in stores where summer merchandise is pretty much gone, but the new fall season hasn’t really hit the racks yet. Which makes shopping slightly awkward, but if you look really hard you can score some AWESOME deals (read: everything is on sale!) I checked out some […]

Womanista Fashion: Take Me On Vacation

wildfox couture 5

I just spent a few weeks down in Florida on “30A” (AKA, the beaches of South Walton!) and it was magical, marvelous, relaxing, and fun, per usual…and I did not want to come back! The beach is always a special place to me, but taking a vacation during the late summer always feels even more […]

Jumpsuit 1

The other day I strolled into the Diane von Furstenberg store in Los Angeles and reluctantly (but curiously) tried on a few jumpsuits – (ps – are they calling them “onesies” these days?) I’ve never thought I could pull off this style, but I absolutely LOVED IT! And seriously womanistas, anyone can wear this one. […]

Womanista Fashion: Summer Tribal

Mara Hoffman 3

I love bold, fun prints during the summer (you can probably already tell that if you’ve been following my last few fashion posts – hello, tie-dye pants!) Anyway, this is one of my fave summer looks. An easy mini-dress paired with some glam sandals, beachy waves, and a chic headband. I wore this look to […]
