White is the new black

Admittedly, I was hesitant to follow the white shoe fashion trend. Mainly because growing up my mom would make me wear puffy dresses, white shoes and ruffled socks every Sunday to church. Once I was a pre-teen I was elated to never wear white shoes again – well I thought wrong. Now I’m obsessed with pairing every outfit with a hint of white. Not only is it super chic but it lets your shoe standout as a statement piece.

They can be styled with boyfriend jeans, wide leg pants or a midi dress. In the past white shoes were a thing of the summer. But unless you’ve been living under a rock – you know its a street style trend worth trying all year round.

New year new me .. well not really

As the year comes to a close I can’t help but to reflect on 2017. Without a doubt it was TOUGH AF – well unless you were Cardi B. From the Trump election to the gun violence, terrorist attacks and natural disasters – it was a roller coaster ride. To be honest, love, God and having tons of faith got me through this year.

On a professional note this year brought a lot of growth. I focused on building my network and it really paid off. I now have what I call “my front row” which consist of senior managers that are supportive of my career. These are my go-to people that I can turn to for professional advice.

It’s such a relief to close this chapter and start the year fresh. I look forward to making new memories, crossing things off my bucket list and remaining true to myself. Admittedly, I dislike new year resolutions. During this time of year most people make unrealistic resolutions without putting in the work. It takes more than one year to completely change your life. Of course you will see gradual change but don’t place hard expectations on yourself. Enjoy the journey but keep your eyes on the destination.

Bloody shoes

I recently took my Christian Louboutins to the Leather Spa to repair the red sole. At first I didn’t really think I needed to replace them. However, after seeing the results I’m glad I did. Without a doubt owning a pair of Loubs is considered an investment. I don’t plan on buying replacements so its important to take care of them. I decided to try Leather Spa after some extensive research. They have various locations in midtown so I utilized the most convenient location which is Grand Central station.

Once you drop off the shoes the Leather Spa team examines them carefully. Honestly I was expecting to spend $35 per pair as advertised online. But, things started adding up once they pointed out what needed to be fixed. One pair costed $80 dollars to fix as they were boots. As much as it hurt I dropped them off and left. They called me back about two weeks later informing me the shoes were ready.


I absolutely recommend repairing your Louboutins (or any other shoes). They did an amazing job and the shoes are basically spanking new. The cheapest way would be to protect the red sole as soon as you purchase a new pair. The less they have to repair the cheaper it cost to fix.

With love,


Bell Sleeve Obsession

The weather was perfect in NYC for Presidents Day weekend. Although I’ve been busy with my career, family and personal life – I couldn’t help but take a trip to the city & shoot this look.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with statement blouses. I found this perfect bell sleeve piece at Zara (it literally goes with everything.) I paired the top with boyfriend jeans to make the look casual yet chic. Below is how I styled it!
