Street Style: The Snow Commute

With the first day of Spring only weeks away, we are still adjusting to the frigid temperatures outside. With cold weather in late February and early March, there are both benefits and disadvantages in regards to fashion. The downfall is obvious, those new spring clothes that were put purchased in February, wont be worn for a long time. Most retailers stack their shelves with spring clothing in February. Since we are still wearing our winter clothing, we doubt those spring clothes will leave your closet anytime soon.

On the positive side, a late winter can benefit our wardrobe and pockets for two reasons. First, we can extend the length of winter clothing. For instance, everyone has that coat or jacket they may have only worn once this season. With a longer winter, you may get to wear the jacket seven times! Second, many stores have their fall and winter clothing available from the previous season.  Here comes the great news: majority of these clothes have been significantly marked down. So, you can purchase most garments for dirt cheap! If you have some extra storage space, you can even purchase some items and save them for the next winter season.

The Advice: Courage in Love

I feel like I write the best when my mind is literally a clusterfuck. So here we are. I’ve been sitting on this idea for a minute, after my last post about fear and love. I’ve been thinking a lot about how to move past fear. I think it’s easy to stay in that state, and it’s important that we talk about how to move away from it. In my last post I discussed how fear stops us from doing the things we want to do. Well, fear can also stop us from doing what we have to do. Whether that is coming to terms with faults within ourselves, being real about where we are at in life, or letting go of bad habits. This can be very scary.


Sometimes we need to do better. Sometimes, we need to give OURSELVES tough love, because we owe ourselves that much ya know? Real progress starts when you acknowledge that a change needs to be made. Of course when I write on this particular blog, I’m talking more about love, but the same concept applies to all aspects of life. It is important to have a balance in life. We all work, or go to school, pay bills, work out, etc. Sometimes one part of our life overpowers everything else. I know when I was in grad school, my primary focus was graduating and getting a job. I didn’t leave much time for anything else. Now that I’m a real person, I see the important of maintaining myself in all aspects. If we as humans want to grow, we have to pay attention to all areas of life. Work, life, and love; mind, body, spirit. Each needs their own attention.

As single people, it is easy for us, to become impatient. It is easy to allow the fear of falling deter us from spreading love and letting love in. Because you can’t really attain the ideal relationship if your heart is closed. I encourage those in a fearful and fragile state to move through the fear. Choose courage. Take a leap of faith, and honor the steps you take, even they are baby steps. This could be, going on a date, calling a love interest, expressing your feelings. Acknowledge when things are not working, and moving on. Most importantly, acknowledging what you can do to let more love into your life. have you shown love to your body? how are you nurturing your mind, your thoughts? I recently picked up this book, ‘The 5 Love Languages.’ It basically talks about how everyone expressed love in different ways. I’ll read it first, and most likely write my thoughts and shit about it on this here blog. So stay tuned.

I want all of you to remember the importance of re-centering yourself in times of distress, confusion, and despair. Especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Trust that the answer is always in you, and keep moving.

After 5: The Pea Coat

Just because there is a little snow on the ground, doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish and warm this winter. All it takes is a little time, effort, and money to perfect your wardrobe for snowfall. So, if you are ready to hit the streets even with a little snow, this post is definitely for you!

Today, we had the opportunity to link up with one of our models, Kourtney.  She took some time out of her busy schedule to show the ladies how to dress appropriately in the snow.


The Lifestyle: Forbidden Fruit | Valentine Masquerade Ball

 On Saturday February 15, 2014, a representative from UnregisteredStyle had the opportunity to attend, “Forbidden Fruit: Valentine Masquerade Ball.” The Gala was held within the city limits of Philadelphia and was one of the most well put together socials for the 2014 Valentine’s Day weekend.

For instance, the strict dress code helped turn this event into a full masquerade ball. Men were required to wear dress shoes, dress pants, ties, tuxedos, and sports coats were all accepted. Women were required to wear cocktail dresses  or full-length gowns. In addition, every guest was required to present an appropriate mask upon arrival.

As a two part event, the Gala began at 9:00pm, in which guests where treated to a dinner reception with complimentary food and wine, and music. Guests were allowed to network and mingle, as they nibbled on a variety of hors d’oeuvres.

After the guests were finished stuffing their faces, the  party officially kicked off at 11:00pm with a DJ and a full cash bar.
