5 Hottest Wardrobe Essentials for Your Summer Vacation

By on July 10, 2017

I just got back from my summer vacation with my family and it was so much fun!! As you all know I love fashion and I planned out my beach outfits weeks before just to make sure I looked my best! I have listed for you what I’ve witnessed in the summer thus far as the most fashion forward trends! Some of them are pics of me and others are just examples πŸ™‚ Okay let’s get started.

2. Embroidered Flowy Swimsuit Coverup

I just love the embroidered look so much. It is a staple this summer and is a must have for every summer vacation. I was on Half Moon Cay of the Bahamas and there were horses so of course I had to say hello! This cover up is also from Forever 21!

 

3. Graphic One Piece Swimsuits

This trend is one of my faves! I love that one pieces are making a come back because you don’t have to show as much skin and still feel sexy! The best graphics are ones that are humorous or make you feel super girly! This cute one piece is from the Fashion Bible!

4. Pink Mirrored Sunglasses

Pink is the color of the season for me! With that being said I’ve noticed a lot of fashionistas rocking pink mirrored sunglasses, especially cat-eyed ones. I personally have many pink mirrored sunglasses this summer vacation because I am a pink fanatic! These bad boys are from Kara & Kate.

 

5. Summer Vacation Side Slit Maxi Dress

The slide slit maxi dress is such an integral part of your wardrobe this summer vacation, an gives off an exotic vibe!

I received many complements on it, and I got it for $30 πŸ™‚ Forever 21 you rock!

The Best Restaurant in Charlotte for Fashionistas to Meet-Up

By on June 3, 2017

 

So as you all know I’ve been a blogger for a total of 5 months now… woah. I feel like just yesterday I was trying to figure out my website (still am) and so nervous to begin! I was blogging alone for a few months until I discovered the amazing website called Style Collective. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I was to finally find a community of fashion bloggers that went above and beyond to help each other grow. Through joining the community, I’ve met a plethora of amazing fashionistas that I’m now great friends with. The creator of the site, Annie, launched a podcast and I volunteered to be a regional leader for Charlotte to plan the celebration event. We all worked hard to make sure all the things were in line and make sure everyone who was invited knew exactly where to go!

The Vivace Experience

Then we figured out the place that we would hold the event and I was so happy to find out that it would be at Vivace in uptown. I had never been there, but people had raved about their food before so I was pumped. When the event started they placed us outside under the string lit umbrellas in the corner! Vivace knew exactly where to place us just in case we created too much commotion. Also the skyline of Charlotte is right behind the restaurant! We took SO many photos because why not?! Needless to say, it was the perfect place for fashionistas to gather and uplift one another. Eben did a fantastic job shooting us and here some of the pictures she took so you guys can see all the fun!

Good Food Makes Us Happy

So as you can tell the food was absolutely delicious! What Chef Caputo served us was so incredible and here are the deets:

  1. Watermelon Cubes, Vin Cotto with shaved pecorino cheese
  2. Smoked Buratta, heirloom tomatoes with lemon jam
  3. Grilled Lamb Porterhouse Farro & Parsley Salad
  4. Gorgonzola BomboliniΒ 

 

The Blogs Who Made This Event AMAZING

Here are the blogs that attended the podcast launch party:

 

This event was just the cherry on top of a great five months of blogging and learning as much as I can. I’ve gotten such great feedback from you ladies and I can’t wait to continue giving you your weekly dose of fashion, girly needs. Until next time my fashionistas πŸ™‚

 

With Love,

How to Land a Job in the Fashion Industry & Where to Start

By on May 17, 2017

So you’re a senior in college and you’ve just graduated with a degree in fashion merchandising and have no clue where to begin **cough THAT WAS ME cough**. You have an older cousin who is a successful fashion buyer for Ross but she’s busy living her life, and your friends aren’t interested in fashion. Where do you look and how do you actually get the job you’re being interviewed for? To all my fashionistas out there who are freaking out, I’m here to save the day. If you follow my tips below, trust and believe you’ll get that position in the fashion industry!!

Utilize Your School’s Career Center

There are so many alumni at your school I can 100% guarantee that you can be connected with someone who is already successful in the section of the fashion industry you want! Make sure that when you’re finally connected with an alumni that you prove to them that you’re worthy of their time and effort. Always be punctual. The career center may have job openings that you can apply to as well!

Use Social Media to Your Advantage

There is absolutely no excuse for you not to know everything about the position you’re applying for. Do your research. On top of that reach out to people in the industry on social media and show them that you’re worthy of their time. I’ve heard that countless hiring managers will give internships to people they’ve met and talked to online.

Do Something Unique to Put on Your Resume

People love uniqueness. Think of something that you can do to set yourself apart from your competition, for example, make clothes for the poor or tutor a school aged girl in fashion! It’s very important to have these unique things so that you can be amazing off AND on paper!

Stop Being Afraid to Network

Ladies, you need to network! That is the ultimate way to make it in this industry. It’s who you know, and whether you like it or not that’s the way to go. DM your favorite fashion bloggers and ask for an informational interview, or ask one of your local shops who they know in the industry. Being sweet & polite goes a long way with people. Make sure that you’re organized and have questions prepared, it shows your passion.

Travel to New Cities

Take a day trip to Chicago or another city near you and talk to managers in all the small stores you see! Ask them how they got there and if they have any tips to be successful in the industry. You’ll be surprised what people know, and you’ll have a new contact in your contact list! Put yourself out there and show them that you’re confident in the skills you possess! Who knows, maybe one of them will know of a job opening that’s not on the internet that’d you be perfect for!

Dress to Impress

Extra Petite

Image is everything! Oh my goodness I cannot stress this enough. Invest in yourself. Make sure you’re consistently up to date with trends and always be yourself in your outfits! The fashion industry is relies heavily on image. Just think, if the hiring manager saw you and LOVED your blazer, she’ll think of it later on which means you’re one step closer to getting that job!

Go Above & Beyond for the Fashion Industry

Send out thank you letters or emails that truly embody who you are as a person and why they have to have you on their team. Arrive 15 minutes early, and be super friendly to each person you meet, even if they’re your competition! Complement each employee you happen to meet and show them that they’d love to work with you. By going above and beyond your competition you’ll land that job in the fashion industry for sure and as a result you’ll be able to help others do the same.

You are now set up for success, if any of you guys have questions or want me to help with cover letters and resumes, leave a comment or email me!

With Love,

Alaya

Fashion is everywhere, and if you want to honor the people who protect this country the best way you know how, read below for some fashion inspiration!

1. The Flowy Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are a staple at cookouts, they make you look ethereal and show that you are laid back. You can pair it with some cute chunky heels and you’re set for your cookout. These dresses from Boho State are perfect for a memorial day cookout look.

2. The Cute Statement Romper

I just love a romper because it gives you the freedom to move around a lot, but you don’t have to worry about adjusting yourself constantly. This blue romper from Daily Chic is just too cute for words!

This look is definitely for the lady who will play volley ball, and all the sports during a cookout! It is layered for when it gets cold and you can take off the cardi when it’s too hot! You can find cute knot crop tops at Forever 21 for cheap!

4. The Maxi Skirt & Pretty Necklace

I love the versatility of a maxi skirt. Not only can you wear it to a cookout but you can wear it so many other places too. To accent the skirt, I know a pretty simple necklace will do just the trick. This olive maxi skirt from Lulu’s is sure to make a statement as soon as you arrive to your memorial day cookout.

5. The Memorial Day Sundress

I think wearing a beautiful flowy sundress to a cookout is super cliche, but I don’t think it should be forgotten. I completely condone doing what everyone expects, but just surprise them a little when you wear a fashion forward piece of jewelry or a super cute purse. However, this sun dress from Chic Bon is so cute on it’s own too!

7. The Matching Set & Big Sun Hat

 

 

I love love love a matching set for a cookout! Memorial Day is filled with fun activities and I’m sure you’d want to join in but still look chic! My favorite look for a cookout is a big sun hat from Luxury Divas and a this matching set from Cupshe.

7. The White Jeans & Embroidered Top

This final look would go perfect with a bright lip and cute wedges! I’m such a big fan of embroidered tops, I have way too many! This grey embroidered top from RooleeΒ is sure to do the job!

 

Okay ladies now let’s get in formation! We are sure to represent this memorial day! I hope these memorial day outfits give you some inspiration to inspire others through fashion πŸ™‚

2. The Diva

How to Find the Perfect Spring Dress on a Budget

By on March 21, 2017

The first day of spring was yesterday and I’m so excited for this season! All the pastels and beautiful flowers blooming just make me feel refreshed! However, not all of us have the funds to have a shopping spree on spring dresses each year. Do not fret my fair ladies because I have cracked the code! I’ve found the cure to the low-budget, expensive taste blues! Now let’s get started…

1. Go on Pinterest for Some Spring Inspiration

Pinterest is my go to for finding inspiring looks and styles! Dedicate a few hours to finding your perfect dresses and researching which fit looks great on your body type. It’s so easy for us to love a dress on the model, and buy it and it looks COMPLETELY different on us. So disappointing. This first step is so important in buying dresses, you don’t want to go through the hassle of returns, save yourself some time and do some research.

2. Create a Budget That You Can Stick To

This is the time to genuinely be realistic about your money situation. Maybe you want 5 spring dresses, or you want to spend big on an expensive dress that you can wear many different ways. Just don’t buy a $50 dollar dress when you only have $60 in your account, you’re setting yourself up for failure. The general rule is 5% of your monthly income should go to clothing. A trick to sticking to your budget, is planning to spend more than you might actually spend. That way you are setting yourself up for success!

3. Do Your Research on Budget-Friendly Companies

Okay you’re almost there to your jaw-dropping spring dress that you didn’t have to break the bank for! You’d be surprised how many small companies have amazing prices that no one knows about! So go on Instagram and browse through companies, or look up local shops that you’ve never been to! See if you can find sales that benefit you, and use Groupon to increase your savings as well!

4. Look Over What You Already Have

It’s so easy to just take a glance at your closet and assume you have no spring dresses to wear. Make sure you look through everything and throw away, sell or donate things you don’t wear. You can even go to Plato’s Closet and sell what you don’t want, then you can get your new spring dress for even cheaper!

5. Shop Smart

Okay here comes the most fun part! Shopping! Can I get a woop woop?! LOL but seriously I love shopping. It gives me a joy that I can’t explain haha. If you are shopping online, make sure you double check for any coupons before making your final purchase. Also look over the size chart and make sure you’ll be able to fit into your new dress, and that it’s not too short or too long. Reading customer reviews can go a long way, and help you have the best chance of getting your gorgeous spring dress that fits well.

If shopping in store, you should most definitely bring a friend to help. I always find shopping at local stores are the most fun, and you can get the know the owner & creator of the clothes! They may even give you a special discount just for being you (hey, a girl can dream). Trying on dresses is so entertaining, especially when the cut is perfect and the colors complement you so well. Go to multiple stores before purchasing to make sure you don’t miss out on any dresses! Then go back to the stores that you really liked and buy your spring dress or dresses!

6. Strut Your Stuff in Your New Spring Dress

You can steal the show on Sunday brunch, and make him take a double take on a date! You can wear so many things with your dress, like a jean or leather jacket. Also, wedges, booties, and strappy shoes can complement it as well! A fresh bright face, curls or a parted afro can pull your look together beautifully!

I love shopping for spring, especially dresses because that’s what I think of when spring comes to mind. I’m sure you all are ready to begin the process of buying your next spring dress, and I’m glad I could help along the way. If you have any things that you do to save money while shopping, let me know below!

With Love,

15 Clothing Hacks That Will Blow Your Mind

By on February 12, 2017

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I have been obsessed with clothing hacks for as long as I can remember! Sometimes clothes can be so frustrating and so I’ve compiled a list of the best clothing hacks out there! They are guaranteed to blow your mind! πŸ˜‰

 

1. The Neck Measurement Hack

To see if a pair of jeans will fit without trying them on, all you have to do is take the waist of the jeans and see if they will fit around your entire neck. It has been proven that the circumference of your neck is more than likely equal to the front of your waist. So the next time you’re out shopping but don’t have the time to try it on, try this hack to save time!

 

2. Get Rid of Pesky Pilling Using a Razor

There are certain fabrics that tend to pill (polyester), so if you find yourself frustrated at piece of clothing you once loved but it has begun to pill I have the solution! You can use an old razor to shave them away. It’s very simple, just be extra careful so that you will not cut through the fabric!

 

3. Dish Soap will Remove Oil Stains

I don’t know about you but I used wash my favorite shirt a whole bunch of times and it still had the oil stain on it. However, when I used regular dish soap to spot treat it, it came right out! I almost cried LOL. So, this hack is a life saver if you accidentally dropped some oily food on your shirt and need it to come out without spending a dime!

 

4. Get Rid of Wrinkles Fast with your Dryer

If you are in a hurry in the morning and don’t feel like whipping out your ironing table and iron. Just throw the article of clothing in the dryer for ten minutes while you do your hair or take a shower. When you’re done, your clothing will be wrinkle free and warm! πŸ˜‰

5. A Dryer Sheet will Remove Deodorant Stains

Whenever I throw on a form fitting dress or t-shirt I almost always get some of my deodorant on it. I learned a few years ago that all you have to do is grab a dryer sheet and rub it on the stain until it comes off. It even makes your clothes smell 10x better!

 

6. Roll Clothing in your Dresser for Easy Access

I used to just fold my clothes in small piles and put them in my drawer. However, I always took forever to find tops or bottoms because you can only see the top shirt or pant! So one of my best friends told me that she rolls her clothes so that she can see all of her options easily! Ever since that amazing tip I can find everything I need in my drawers way quicker!

 

7. Use a Hair Straightener to Iron your Collar

This tip saves me so much time it’s ridiculous! After I’m done straightening my hair, I turn down the heat a little, wipe off the inside with a dry wash cloth, and iron down my collar! It’s so easy and works quickly!

 

|

8. Shaving Cream Removes Makeup Stains

This hack saves my life every day! I got into a car accident a few years ago and the air bag burned my chest! πŸ™ So I apply make up to cover up the small scars that are still there. Now as you can probably guess my makeup gets on my clothes each time. Using shaving cream is so easy and it works quickly! I do it just before I throw it in the wash and it comes out just like new!

 

9. Hairspray Prevents Runs in Stockings

I am a clumsy girl! I just can’t help but to mess something up, my day wouldn’t be complete unless I spilled something or ruined something. So this hack helps me so much. Whenever I have an event where I need to dress up a little, I lightly spray hairspray on my tights, to make sure I don’t create a run. It works every time!

 

10. Cover a Scuff on Your Shoes with Nail Polish

We all have that pair of shoes that would be perfect if we could just remove that annoying scuff. Well, I have the fix! Buy nail polish that matches the color of your shoes and voila, you’ve fixed the problem. No one will be able to tell that you had a scuff to begin with! This is one of my favorite hacks!

 

11. Use a Paper Clip and Thread to Zip Up a Dress

I lived alone my junior year of college, and I remember before my formal date party for my sorority I had no way of zipping up my dress. I ran outside and asked the first person I saw to zip it up, it just happened to be a cable guy haha! I’m sure I made his day πŸ˜‰ After that experience I asked around how other girls zip up their dresses when they’re alone. The consensus was tying a long piece of string to a paper clip, attaching the clip to the zipper, then using the string to pull it up! This hack is perfect for the independent woman!

 

12. Use the Tape Hack when putting on a Bracelet

Putting on a bracelet by yourself can be frustrating, because it will just keep falling off your wrist due to nothing holding the other side down. Using a piece of tape will hold the top of the bracelet down so that you can easily connect the bracelet together.

 

13. Use a Panty-Liner to Block Sweat Stains

If you are going to a place where you know it’s going to be hot like a club or dance class, this hack will change everything! Just simply apply a panty-liner to the armpit of the top you’re going to wear, and you will be safe from those embarrassing sweat stains! Just be sure if you wear a white top, you can’t see the panty-liner through the shirt.

 

14. Duct Tape Can Hold up your Twins

Kim Kardashian slayed my life when she said gave us her tip with using duct tape. Whenever you want to wear a very deep V shirt or dress but wearing a bra is not an option, use duct tape to hold them bad boys up!! Make sure you clean the area you are applying duct tape to, and cover your nipples with tissue. Walk around and dance to make sure that your tape is holding them up perfectly. Now you can wear that sexy dress and have a perky chest too!

 

15. Pocket Size Can Affect Your Butt Size

I have used this hack since I was 13, I’m not joking. LOL! If you wear jeans with big pockets your butt is going to look smaller, so if you’re looking to make the appearance of your butt to look slimmer, buy that type of jean. If you’re looking to make your butt look bigger, look for pants that either have no pockets or pockets that are smaller and higher up. This will make your butt look perkier and bigger!

If you have any hacks that you love to use, comment below! I’d love to hear them! πŸ™‚

Show Stopping Fashion for the Winter Nightlife

By on January 29, 2017

Knee High Boots

Knee high boots are an integral staple of winter nightlife fashion, you can wear a short dress, or skirt and still keep your legs warm. Suede knee high boots that tie behind the knee are all the rave this winter! Leather knee high boots are also really fashionable, especially when they have a super high heel! Whether the boots be heels or flat, they are sure to be a show stopper at whatever bar, lounge or club you go to!

Jumpsuits

Wearing a long sleeve top and pants are very predictable for winter nightlife looks, how ever if you’re looking for a way to spice that up jumpsuits are a great idea! You can wear a great strappy shoe with it or some cute pumps. I love wearing booties with my all black jumpsuit, it makes it more grungy! In my opinion the best textile for a jumpsuit is knit, so that you can dress it up with a leather jacket or fur coat.

Leather Jackets

As I just mentioned in the jumpsuits, leather jackets can jazz up any outfit! I have leather jackets in brown, black and tan. Having many colors allows you to grunge up any outfit you feel needs it! The 90’s fashion is coming back full storm, and leather jackets are a great start to your 90’s fashion collection!

Saks Fifth Avenue

Fur Coats

When I think of fur coats it reminds me of Joanne the scammer and her coat LOL! Fur coats go perfect with a form fitting outfit. A body con dress, or a jumpsuit, a fur coat provides warmth and still give your outfit a high fashion look. Faux fur coats are just a perfect addition to your nightlife fashion, I prefer the blush pink coat or a natural looking brown. Also earth toned fur coats are beautiful as well.

Lulu's Fashion Lounge

Velvet

I am an AVID velvet lover! I just love the look and feel of it! Velvet is great for winter nightlife fashion because it is really stylish and keeps you warm too! When you go out, you don’t want to wear your regular coat, that’s not how you stand out! Velvet long sleeve dresses are so flattering, and if you wear a matte lip with it, it will let the focal point be the velvet. When putting together outfits I always choose a focal piece and let the rest of my outfit support that. Velvet is a 90’s staple item, and as you can tell I love the 90’s look! If you have a go-to winter nightlife outfit, comment it below! πŸ™‚
