Closet Whisperer Pick of the Day: French Connection Kimono Coat

This French Connection coat is probably the only thing I'm keeping an eye on for Black Friday/ Cyber Monday.  I've seen it worn 3 different ways by 3 of my favorite style trendsetters.

The Perfect Lippie for Fall.... & its Super Cheap too!

I'm usually a nude lip kind of girl, but I stepped out of my comfort zone & tried a few new lipsticks for New York Fashion Week. Since then I've become addicted to a bolder pout! My latest go to has been

Friday Chic!

This week's Friday Chic feature is wardrobe stylist Urcia of " Styled by Urcia". I J'ADORE her style & she bodied this look that she wore to the GQ x Glamour Magazine fashion show last week. I loved the fur vest that she paired with an oxblood leather skirt & lip to match. Dainty accessories & nude pointed toe pumps perfected her look. Make sure you check out her blog for specific deets on this look, as well as, other daily outfits & style tips.

Monday Motivation


"I didn't always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the woman I wanted to become"

I love this quote by Diane Von Furstenberg. Sometimes my goals & dreams can be overwhelming. However, the ultimate vision that I have for myself is so clear to me. I try to hold onto that when I'm feeling a little unsure.

Y'all ever feel that way?

New in the Closet.....

Closet Whisperer Instagram

I spotted these beauties on blogger boo Gray & had to have them! They were out of stock online for the longest but I was finally able to order them. My plan was to wear them for fashion week. Sad thing was they were too big when I got them & I had to send them back. They sold out AGAIN but I kept checking & saw the size I needed available last week. I called to snatch them up right away & was told that there was only 1 pair left in the exact size I needed. FATE! I was able to get them at a nice percentage off too. They arrived on my doorstep over the weekend & fit perfectly! I can't wait to wear them.

Spread Love Its The Brooklyn Way: NYFW Essence Street Style Block Party

My 1st day in New York kicked off with a bang. I stayed in the upper eastside of Manhattan with my cousin which was awesome. The area was so nice & it was close to the Lincoln Center, Central Park & not far from the other shows I was going to. As soon as I touched down, I got ready so I could meet up with My Fashion Fairy Friend, Deone at Essence Magazine's Street Style Block Party in Brooklyn. Now I used to work in New York and my only gripe with Brooklyn is that it always took me FOREVER to get there. This time was no different. A 30 minute train ride turned into an hour getting to Dumbo, Brooklyn.  Me & trains just don't click. Hopping off one & jumping to another. I don't have the patience for all that especially when I'm so used to just getting in my car & driving.

I literally caught the last 10 minutes of this block party, but it was still packed when I got there! The people & energy there were amazing. I managed to get a few shots from a great event. There was a designer spotlight for 3 designers:

Accessories talent Melody Ehsani:

Project Runway alum Kimberly Goldson:

Menswear designer Ron Bass

Chevorlet cars were also on display featuring custom art. Dope!

 We left there & headed to a private party at my new fave spot, The James hotel.  I love a good rooftop. The atmosphere, the view, the music..... it just had a good vibe. If you're in New York you have to stop by. Thanks to Chef for the invite!

Fun times! Click here in case you missed the deets on what I wore.

TRENDING: Temporary Tattoos

During fashion week, I went to the Lincoln Center & got this pretty temp tattoo at the Pandora jewelry station. I didn't think much of it until I got back to Atlanta and people were asking me: "Where did you get that?" What is that?" or telling me how cute it was. So, I thought I'd share.

What I Wore: NYFW Day 1

If you follow me on social media, you'll know that I went to New York Fashion Week this year! It's been almost 2 years since I been in New York & I was so excited to go. I always come alive there! With that being said I came up with the bright idea to go maybe a week & a half ago! So, planning the wardrobe was very last minute. I know, I'm crazy.

Closet Whisperer x NYFW: Nolcha's Fashion Week

On Tuesday I attended Nolcha's Spring/ Summer '15 collection of emerging designers. I'm always on the lookout for what's new & next in fashion so I couldn't wait for this show. It was a packed house with notable celebs such as Rocsi Diaz, Russell Westbrook & my newest boo Johnny Wujek. Who knew Katie Perry's costume designer was such a cutie patootie?! 



The 1st designers to present were Charles & Ron which i loved! I could see myself wearing a lot of the pieces. It was very feminine & I loved the use of soft colors & print. Definitely a designer duo to watch. 

#2  Sofia Arana

I also enjoyed Sophia Arana's very girly collection.  She had me with the maxi!

 #3 Katty Xiomara

 I also thought Katty Xiomara shined with her collection mixed with structured & flowy pieces. I'd wear the last look in a heartbeat. Easy breezy & good pair of pumps is very much my style.

Designers: Monstruosite', Schuyler 4, Oiselle
Overall, The Nolcha Fashion Week presentation was well balanced showcasing a total of 13 diverse designers with their own point of view. I really enjoyed it!

Monday Motivation: Enjoy Figuring Out Who You are

I've always liked Zoe Saldana's confidence & how blunt she is. So, when I saw this interview that she did with Amanda de Cabanet last year, I wanted to share it with you guys. My favorite part was around the 3:00 mark where she says: 
"I know who I am. I love who I am. I like what I do, and I like how I do it. I like my mistakes and I like the pace at which I learn from my mistakes. I don't want to be anybody else but me, and by knowing this, I want to continue figuring out who the f*ck I am."
I'm real big on positive thinking and affirmations & I thought this would be a good one to repeat especially on those days where I feel a little unsure of who I am & where I'm headed in life. Kudos to Zoe!

Nice, France

Overlooking The Mediterranean Sea
 Once upon a time The Closet Whisperer was actually a flight attendant for a major airline. At the time I didn't have a blog where I was the main focus to share my experiences, but now I do. So, BOOM! Let's get into it. I traveled to some pretty dope places around the world & one of the most beautiful places I went to was Nice, France. Seriously guys, this place is a walking post card. Sorry for the photo quality in advance, I took them all on my iPhone. Any who......

I Define Life Interview Series Feat. Gray Castillo

Everyone meet Gray Castillo. Based in Zurich, Switzerland She is H&M's Showroom manager, a Fab Stylist & Blogger. and the perfect person to kick off my "I Define Life" interview series- spotlighting fashion trendsetters, forward thinkers, & creatives. Basically people who are dope! Let's get to know her shall we?

First off I am obsessed with your style & your ability to mix print & textures. How would you describe your style & What inspires your looks?
"I'd describe my style as a mix of Ghetto chic and versatile, sometimes minimalist with clean pieces, but very experimental when it comes to colors and patterns. I mix it in a creative way with heels and chunky accessories.
My looks are inspired from the people I love, people I work with, colors, books, old pictures from my mom and magazines."
