My Style. My Way.

Sponsored by JD Williams. For me, fashion is a no-brainer. I make sure to wear what makes me happy and I could care less of other peoples expectations.

Since the fall season is my favorite time of the year, I will rock my favorite Bold Boho looks. That’s basically boho with a…

Downtown Vibes

There’s just something about Downtown L.A. that gets me every time. It gives off this historic vibe one minute and then moves on to a unique gritty hustle kind of vibe the next.

I loved it so much, I decided to do an impromptu photo…

Faux Real | Vegan Handbags

Accessories hold a special place in my heart. They can do so much for an outfit, without taking over. I appreciate that. One of my favorite accessories are handbags of course. I’m a sucker for a cross-body bag any day of the week. For the past few months, I’ve decided to cut leather/animal skin handbags out of my closet and my life. This is where vegan handbags come in. Don’t get me wrong, I still want the quality, workmanship, and style–just without the animal. These brands and designers have done a great job of achieving that. Here are seven vegan…
