Fall Favorites on Essence.com

Ahh! Long time, no post. I no longer have a laptop, and no one's ever around to take pictures for me (#fashionbloggerproblems), but I'm definitely working on fixing it! Luckily, Essence is here to save the day. Recently, I met up with my good friend Christina of the blog Love Brown Sugar to do a photo shoot for Essence.com. We wore two outfits each that expressed our favorite fall items, and surprisingly ended up choosing really similar silhouettes!

I'm obsessed with anything bird print, so I wore one of my fave blouses from ASOS with the same Torrid Tripp Skinny pants I can't get enough of. I was just discussing with someone how skinny jeans look great on all shapes and sizes--I can't believe people still believe that outdated crap about curvy girls having to wear bootcut pants. Blegh.

Below are my favorite pics of the bunch, but be sure to go to the full feature to see the rest! Thanks, Essence!

Back to Black

I went to a few Fashion Week events today and wasn't sure what to wear, which means I opted for my go-to look: head to toe black. Since my outfit itself was pretty simple, I decided to glam it up with a statement necklace from Aldo and a floppy hat from H&M. I love dark lips with looks like this, so I wore "All of My Purple Life," the MAC lipglass designed by friend and fellow blogger Afrobella!

Fashion's Night Out!

I had a blast yesterday in Soho for Fashion's Night Out! The city's energy is always super intense during Fashion Week, and last night was no different. I decided to wear my awesome sheer beaded cape top from Dorothy Perkins with my gold sequin mini from Forever21. I definitely got a lot of stares in this, both good and bad. I consider that the sign of a great outfit.

Can I just take a moment and thank the fashion gods that top knots are in? Because seriously, my hair + humidity just doesn't work. I had it professionally done and it lasted about 4 minutes after I stepped outside.

And oh yeah, um, I met my hero, Beth Ditto. She performed at MAC's event, and was just as amazing as expected. She signed my magazine, "Fat Forever, Love, Beth." I died.
