American Heart Association Red Dress Event



I’ve never blogged about the work I do as a designer since this is my personal style blog. However, today is an exception! I created a red evening gown to raise awareness for women with heart disease for one of my classes. Heart disease is the number one killer in women. My dress made it into the competition, as well as my school’s annual fashion show. To the event, I went with the red theme and wore a burgundy outfit. I found this really cool asymmetric bodysuit and paired it with a burgundy pencil skirt. I wore a tightly fitted blazer with black heels. As a statement piece, I wore a gold necklace and matched it with a thick bracelet. Finally, I put on my favorite hippie by Colourpop, LAX. It is the perfect maroon tone and it complements my skin very well. I felt this look was so easy to create and very classy and mature, which is what is was going for.

Get the look:

  • Bodysuit: Missguided ($11 on sale)
  • Pencil Skirt: Charlotte Russe Outlet ($10)
  • Blazer: Rainbow ($5)
  • Shoes: A store on South St, Philly ($10)
  • Jewelry: courtesy of my mom

Outfit of the Night



This past weekend I went to a surprise birthday party. I wore an all black outfit with a striped faux fur vest. I used the vest as a bold statement piece, so I kept the rest of the outfit minimal; a turtleneck sweater, black high-waisted skinnies,suede quilted over-the-knee boots, a black and gold necklace, gold stud earrings, and a gold watch.The all black is my go-to, especially for nighttime. So simple, yet so stylish. This outfit is perfect for when you want to feel dressed up, with being comfortable and casual. The bold blackberry lipstick is a statement on its own that complements the dark outfit. The two toned faux fur with this vampy lip makes the entire look!
