One of the things that I love about NY is the fact that there are as many bodegas as there are photo ops conveniently located at every corner. Whether it is an alley way, next to a dirty glass door, against random brick walls, a dumpster, or even in front of 99 cent City, everything just looks a little bit cooler…

I wasn’t going anywhere important on this sunny and warm day , just down the street and around the corner to my favorite Caribbean fast food joint, Golden Crust (actually that was important). I wanted to test out these booties to see how comfortable they are before I actually wear them out at night. The verdict? Umm, not so comfortable after say 45 minutes, but they are so freakin’ sexy it’s worth it. Sorry feet.

Just as quickly as my love blossomed for the “extreme” high low trend last year, the appeal faded out faster than I can spelled a-s-y-m-m-e-t-r-i-c-a-l… But somehow, this look always seem to find a way back into my life. I can’t deny, the look is so feminine, flirty, a bit edgy/sexy and effortless all meshed up together in one little ball. This Siho dress is the perfect summer to fall transition for me and I love how comfortable it is. I wore it lounging around the house and for outdoor, I paired it with my favorite booties, a denim jacket to give it some shape and emerald T&J Designs earrings for a pop of color! xo

I used to be a bit wary about wearing midi skirts because I was told it will make me look stumpy but in the last several years I can’t get enough of them.

Tip: Make sure your skirt is high-waisted and paired with heels.

I think mid-length skirts are universally flattering that instantly evoke a retro vibe and a stylish element that can be classy, funky, or dramatic. Don’t get me wrong, I love showing my legs with the mini, but there’s a quiet sex appeal with the mid length that’s so much more alluring when less skin is shown.I know it’s a style that’s not for all. I’m curious what you think about the midi and why you prefer not to wear it..?

Pattern Play: Why Crop Tops and High Waisted Skirts?


Why do I love crop tops and high waisted everything?

Even for those of us without perfectly toned stomachs, the cropped top is not quite as scary as it seems. Trust me when I say my stomach is no wear near flat, I’m just really good at pretending. Hence: suck in as much as I could, wear spanx or wear something high waisted. I opt for the latter because sucking in stomach and wearing spanx is pretty darn uncomfortable.

That’s probably why I’m always in something high waisted and pairing it with a crop top to show the illusion of a flat stomach. How? The higher-midriff zone is the part of the body that doesn’t really get fat and showing a peek of it is a good way to create suggestion of a tone stomach without revealing much at all! Crap, now you know my secret. :)

Even though I love combining a crop top with a high waisted skirt in the same print, this time, I wanted to play around with a slightly different pattern. One print is a little busier than the other to balance each other out. Combining these two different yet complimentary fabrics creates a look that’s similar to a dress yet with an unexpected break that’s unique and eye-catching. Hope you guys like this look! This will be available to ship the week of September 15 (possibly sooner).
