Building My Fall and Winter Wardrobe with a Millennial Paycheck

“Is it safe to say we back?” I feel like I am dusting off the cobwebs on this dormant blog. A lot’s transpired since my last blog post in late March. I collaborated with Summerfest this summer and hosted giveaways on my page and attended Summerfest to capture attendees’ style. Here is one attendee myself and Ken found at Summerfest 2018. After the collaboration ended though, I took about two months to rid myself of heavy social … Read MoreBuilding My Fall and Winter Wardrobe with a Millennial Paycheck

Should Walmart Stay in Their Lane After Their Latest Push into Fashion?

Yesterday I visited Walmart to pick up some body wash, hand soap, small Ziploc bags, a pack of 5 Spearmint Gum and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Yes, some of these products are the essentials to remaining cleaner than the board of health. What you don’t see above that could also help someone become cleaner than the board of health are goods like clothes and shoes. Clothes and shoes? Yes. As most people know, Walmart is … Read MoreShould Walmart Stay in Their Lane After Their Latest Push into Fashion?

5 Tips to ORGANICALLY Grow Your Instagram Following

How do you organically grow your following on Instagram as a blogger/photographer/model/creator? To date, I have 1,075 followers on Instagram. By the end of this post that could be down to 1,070. The amount always fluctuates. One thing that is certain right now though? I don’t have upwards of 10k followers. And by most influencer marketing standards that takes me out of the “micro influencer” classification. I’m more of a “micro micro influencer.” Even using … Read More5 Tips to ORGANICALLY Grow Your Instagram Following

The Truth About H&M’s Monkey Business and Why H&M Will Remain in My Wardrobe

WHY YOU ACTING LIKE AN UNCLE TOM? I can already hear the peanut gallery clamoring as they read the title. Save the slander because, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Yes, I had to throw in the most meme-able statement from Sweet Brown’s hysterical YouTube video gone viral.

Stop Acting Brand New: Are Brand Names Qualifiers for Style?

I’m going to need your help with this article. Over the past year of fashion blogging, I’ve perused looklive, YouTubers documenting the style of artists like Playboi Carti, Travis Scott and Kanye West. I’ve also checked out the street style of different people on PAUSE, a street style publication based out of the U.K., and have peeped countless outfits of celebrities on Instagram. These celebrities, more often than not, are shown wearing brand names. Some … Read MoreStop Acting Brand New: Are Brand Names Qualifiers for Style?

When Fashion Blogging Takes a Turn for the Worst

So one day I was having a conversation with a Milwaukee fashion blogger who will remain nameless, you chatty Patty. This fashion blogger was like a handful of others prior to blogging – interested in fashion, but too busy (and perhaps lazy) to blog. “Why would I waste my time on social media or a website blogging about…fashion? (Scoffs) Talk about superficial.” Finally Broke Down Months rolled on and others noticed this blogger had a … Read MoreWhen Fashion Blogging Takes a Turn for the Worst

Shopping on a budget is my go-to move..always.

Milwaukee Fashion Week 2017

Let me provide a brief backdrop before I talk about the fashion show itself. It’s safe to say Milwaukee is not known as the fashion capital of the world (despite this bold claim in my Instagram bio). However, despite Milwaukee’s lackluster fashion scene, there are a host of enthusiasts uplifting the city of Milwaukee into a realm where Milwaukee and fashion can become somewhat synonymous. Obviously one person can’t change the entire landscape, but a … Read MoreMilwaukee Fashion Week 2017

How to Wear Cropped Pants

Summer is officially over. Based on the weather in Wisconsin this past week and upcoming weekend, that could not be more of a lie. Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to reach 88 degrees, despite the fact that last year around this time it was about 60 degrees. Finding what to wear when you can’t figure out the weather has it challenges, but thankfully, these pants saved the day for me. Hopefully you learn a bit about … Read MoreHow to Wear Cropped Pants

Subjective Style Advice: Less is More

I’m sitting here on my laptop looking up different shoes and boots from Kanye West’s line just because, as well as articles surrounding “the Yeezy hype.” I don’t own a pair Yeezy boots or shoes, but if I did own a pair, I would flip the crap out of them. Why? Because most Yeezy shoes and boots, unlike cars, appreciate in value. HOWEVER, I’m not here to discuss sneakers and streetwear. I’ll leave that for … Read MoreSubjective Style Advice: Less is More

I’m sure you’ve heard this question thrown around, and around…and around. Why do we question if it is acceptable to rock white after Labor Day? It’s just another color.
