The Lifestyle: Vault by Philly Fashion Week


Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a fashion show produced by the creative team behind Philly Fashion Week entitled, “Vault.”

According to their official website:

“The producers of Philly Fashion Week presents an intimate night where the vault of fashion is unlocked. Join the industry’s elite in this exclusive night of fashion and mingling. The Vault Show features a complimentary cocktail reception and a eclectic mix of high fashion and couture designers that will ignite the runway. Time to unload the VAULT!”

With a cocktail hour beginning at 7pm and a runway presentation at 7:30pm, the show itself was very organized. The room was filled with a very supportive staff, stylish audience, and professional models.

Sitting in the crowd, I was amazed with the quality of work that was put in the show and designs. The models were dressed from head to toe in the latest collections from the following designers: Bishme Cromartie, Autumn Lin, Ayassa Afi, Ke’ Collection.

Overall, the show itself was amazing! I had a great time taking photos, networking, and snacking on the side. Honestly, I am looking forward to the next one!

Feel free to check out some photos from the event below!

Whether you are dining at a five star restaurant or catching a late night movie, you always want to dress up for a date.

Dating? What is dating? Before the infamous “Netflix and chill” became a way of life, there was a time when we actually made an effort to court outside the bedroom.

Unlike most people from our generation, I actually enjoy dating. Keep in mind, I’ve wasted plenty of money on failed blind dates and Tinder meetups. However, you can’t go wrong when your main agenda is out dress the competition.

For this specific look, I paired together my old black blazer from Forever21, with a Ralph Lauren button-up, burgundy chinos, and tassel loafers. You can never go wrong with dark colors, especially during the fall. So, this outfit was perfect for courting season.

I further accessorized my date look with a black knit tie, and polka dot pocket square. Remember, it’s all about the minor details.

So, what do you think about this outfit? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.

This October, we are filling out closets with a few fashion must-haves that can withstand all the changing trends this season.

If you don’t believe us, just ask our natural hair and lifestyle blogger friend, Skye. Known for her big hair, vibrant personality, and flashy wardrobe, Skye stops by to show off her favorite item this season: the infamous, slim hugging “little black dress.”

A woman known for intricate details, Skye knows how add minor accessories to enhance her look. For this look, she threw on a brown sleeveless vest with a thrifted red clutch, and black booties. Skye further accessorized her look with gold bracelets from Aldo. She states, “The black dress is the perfect must have for the fall, you can dress it up with layers and accessories or down depending on the event you’re heading to!”

Remember, you can’t go wrong with a black dress, especially when you add a little pop of color.

Now, if you currently own a little black dress, don’t worry about the actual length. When you have a silhouette like Skye, the dress length is a non factor.

So how do you like Skye’s sexy elegant look?

Jeans: ASOS | Boots: DSW

After surviving the “not-so” catastrophic events of Hurricane Joaquin this weekend, I decided to get some wear and tear out of my favorite trench coat. To be honest, this trench coat rarely gets to see daytime before November. However, this weekend was a wet one, which required a more water resilient coat. So, wearing a trench coat was the best option.

Worn with a long-line graphic tee, distressed skinny jeans, and leather combat boots, this trench coat put the final touches on my post apocalyptic mother nature look.

In reference to the minor details, the graphic tee itself was purchased for $1 from H&M a couple weeks ago during their mid season sale. Yes $1! Prior to double checking the price with the cashier, I was startled myself. Furthermore, this shirt was a win for me, especially with it’s “Good at Being Bad” message. I have to admit, that’s kind of my mood right now. In combination with my distressed denim jeans and combat boots, my inner bad boy persona was unleashed.

How did you hold up during Hurricane Joaquin this weekend? Was your closet prepared for inclement weather like mine?
