It’s Red Hot: Why Denim Day Matters

As a woman, being in denim is nothing different than being in lingerie. It’s something that I cannot live without. Think of it as the breakfast, lunch and dinner of clothing. However, the message of wearing denim is not something to be taken lightly.

In 1992, a woman was raped by her driving instructor and pressed charges. Six years later, Italian Supreme Court overturned the case by arguing that the victim’s choice of clothing helped her rapist undress her and declared it “consensual”. That choice of clothing was a pair of jeans. Not did I find that extremely ridiculous, it pissed me off that the blame was put on her.

Unfortunately, victim-shaming STILL happens today. I never want to let my love for denim to be shamed for expressing my sexuality and identity as a woman. Ladies, let’s do this today, shall we? Gentlemen, you are more than welcome to join.

The Last Dance: How to do Prom Right

I may be long out of high school, but the memories of going to prom have never been forgotten. I have to admit that I came a long way from looking like a basic bitch: smoky eyes, pink lipstick, natural makeup, whatever! Not to mention, a big ass ball gown, sky high heels and an undo was the thing back in 2011. I honestly loved going to prom, but I wish I was more adventurous with my dresses (other than me wearing a tuxedo the year after).

Instead of going out on big dresses and big hair, keeping it simple is the way to go.

A) Pretty in Polkadots

Inspired by the ’80s vibe of Pretty in Pink, I pull out an off-the-shoulder top and style it with a sleeveless polka dot dress. It gives that cutout shoulder effect that the era was known for. Have you forgotten to shave your legs for the past week? Pull on some thigh-high stockings! Believe me, it’s unbelievably avant grade when you rock with lucite sandals. Throw on your choker and you’re good to go!

B) Emoji Flamenco

Still stuck on the flame trend? Give that a go with an asymmetrical hemline! This red dress has an asymmetrical hemline that can elevate the look immediately. When paired with lace tights and a white tee, you got this look on lock. Believe me, it’s very 2017 with the white tee underneath everything look for formalwear! When your feet are exhausted and you’re too cold, grab a coat and put on your favorite white sneakers. If you choose to stay up until the morning comes, don’t forget to bring your sunglasses!

Will you try those looks? What other suggestions do you have for unconventional prom outfits?

#OOTD: Back to Reality

Weekend One has already ended and it’s a bummer that you have to go back to work. However, the festival spirit is still inside you. Remember those statement sunnies and that bling bling choker you bought three weeks ago? Put ’em on again! Before you think about selling your velvet shorts to Buffalo Exchange, plan another outfit with ’em! If you marry your festival wardrobe with your work basics, it’s a whole new take on that “I just got out of work” outfit that can take you to drinks to a fun night out!

#HERSSENTIALS: Rainbow sandals


Chloé rainbow sandals

If there is a Lucky Charm in a world full of Cheerios, these Chloe sandals are the answer. As much as I love nude and black sandals, they can get boring. Being the Gemini that I am, I grab my go-to Chloe rainbow sandals. Not only are they beautiful, but they put a smile on my face. From every single string in shades of ROYGBIV, they make a bare foot look less ugly and a fishnet-covered toe pop. Like, if you imagine yourself as Anne Hathaway making out with that hot blonde dude on Princess Diaries, never forget to do that foot pop. Just make sure it doesn’t caught in a net! 😜

Party Time Excellent: The Kimono

I’m skipping Coachella (due to the jet lag from Eurotriping for two weeks), but the spirit is here to stay. One of the Coachella essentials is a kimono. Sadly, I did not do this back when I first attended the festival; however, it’s the perfect go-to closet staple to cover up that new belly, which you’ve gained from downing one too many beers at the tailgate. Safe to say, it’s a hangover outfit saver.

With kimonos, you can wear it open or close it with a sash. If you wear it with short shorts, it runs the risk of looking basic as fuck. Rock it well with a pair of patched bootcuts and an off-the-shoulder crop top. If you are in the city, wear it with lucite sandals or pull out your go-to fishnets! If you are in the desert, do it a platform sneaker and short fishnet socks. See how easy breezy it looks? Give yourself a pat on the shoulder.

#HERSSENTIALS: Gucci-inspired Jeans


Recently, I was on vacation in Milan and everywhere I went, the Gucci effect was all over the racks. Store after store had the most outlandish things imaginable: marabou sandals, impractical bag shapes (e.g. Dolce and Gabbana’s ice-cream straw purse) and Dr. Seuss-esque fur coats at the 5-lettered fashion house. Thank goodness minimalism has finally died! But here’s something that no one really knows about what’s been brewing: I have been dressing like this for the past 3 years. To be exact, it was one year before Alessandro Michele became the main designer for Gucci. Truth be told, I am all Gucci.

As someone who loves the new maximalism of Michele, his take on patched denim is forever inspirational. However, I feel that there is no need for me to drop $1K on a pair of jeans that I can simply do at home.

Here, I take up a pair of Levi’s orange tab bootcut jeans,  plunged my scissors against the surface and cut out the pockets and back panel. Then, I just glued and ironed all of my favorite patches. See how simple that is? You can simply get your dream denim for less!

And why do I like patched denim? It’s so easy to pair it with anything imaginable: an off the shoulder crop top, vintage graphic tee, crystal choker, red sunnies, fishnet tights, sneakers, backpack and any shade of millennial pink!
