Party Skirts for Every Occasion by Ehmonie Hainey – if you enjoyed this post, you can read more at What’s Haute, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. I’ve REALLY tried to cut back on shopping over the past year. When your closet gets out of control like mine has, you start focusing more on absolute essentials (most clothes/shoes/accessories don’t fit in this category) and less on everything that catches your eye. And I have to say, I’ve been pretty successful. That is, until I went shopping with my mom …

Knowing what looks good on you is the first step in being stylish. Sure you can wear nice clothes, but if it doesn’t look great on you, what’s the point?

A Case for Crop Tops by Ehmonie Hainey – if you enjoyed this post, you can read more at What’s Haute, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. I grew up in the era of TLC and Aaliyah, so crop tops and baggy jeans were pretty much my (and my generation’s) standard uniform.

So, bandage dresses really had their moment over the last decade, but that trend finally came to an end. I was a fan of the trend, so luckily, I found a good replacement: bodycon dresses! Bodycons are the dress equivalent to skinny jeans: they’re both slim-fitting and figure-flattering. It’s…

12 Ways to Wear Denim: High-Waist Jeans

12 Ways to Wear Denim: High-Waist Jeans

I’m a girl who loves the sunshine and I’d MUCH rather rock a sundress than a parka. But (north) East Coast living unfortunately doesn’t allow for summer dresses all year long so I am forced to find cozy but lightweight outerwear options. I prefer to drape myself in a thick blanket scarf or poncho when the weather starts to cool. It’s like an anti-coat. It keeps you warm without you having to…

{VIDEO} Quick and Easy Halloween Costume: Cookie Lyon from Empire

I love getting dressed up for Halloween but of course buying costumes can get expensive. And when you consider the fact that you wear those pre-packaged costumes only one time… So this year I decided to shop my closet instead (and the mall for a few extra items here and there) to create my own Halloween costumes inspired by some of my favorite characters and/or celebrities. First up is this costume inspired by Cookie Lyon, from my (and just about everyone…

12 Ways to Wear Denim: Wide-Leg Jeans

12 Ways to Wear Denim: Wide-Leg Jeans

Denim is like a second skin to me. If I was forced to choose only one item to wear the rest of my life, it would be jeans. They’re the most comfortable thing for me to wear and the first thing I grab when getting dressed! I love that they can be either dressed up or down so they work equally well for weekend errands or a date night outfit. Plus, there are always new (or re-emerging) styles to choose from. Hello, …

Seasonal Stripes

Seasonal Stripes

As my closet seems to grow smaller and smaller, I try to consolidate by buying items that I can wear all year long. This asymmetric striped skirt is one of those pieces that I’ve worn in every season, in both warm and cold weather. For Winter and Spring (when it was cold), I layered it with a long vest and paired it with tights and knee…

Wanderlust

Wanderlust

Wanderlust noun 1. a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about. When I’m not traveling, I’m always dreaming of my next destination. I love visiting new places, absorbing new cultures, trying new foods, and just wandering and exploring. Even if it’s just exploring locally. Sometimes the best surprises come from the places closest to you. When I stumbled onto this particular area, it made me feel like I was wandering through Morocco, or Mexico, or some other faraway locale. Until I get to go on my next trip, I’ll just continue to …
