Memo 190: Super Hero Status

To: All
From: Me
Date: July 30, 2015
Subject: Featuring the JORD Wood Watch
__________________________________________________________________________________

Who remembers when I mentioned in Memo 002 that I like clothes that make me feel like a super hero?

Well, this top definitely fits the description. It's pure poetry in motion. This top catches the wind like that its only job on this earth. 


I'll be completely honest. I saw this top on my bestie a few months ago and immediately began my plot to steal it from her. At night, I would watch her while she was sleeping to see if I could slip away, convince the top to join the other items in my luggage and come home with me.

Unfortunately, she was on to me and I was not victorious. Little heffa. She was, however, nice (read: wise) enough to see and then purchase the top for me when she saw it at a Zara in her home state. Lucky for her.


When I finally received it in the mail, I explored several different options and finally decided on pairing the top with these emerald green pants from J. Crew. I love how the solid colors played nicely together. For the accessories, I went for wood, gold and tortoise shell. Oh, please say hello to my new wood watch from JORD. Isn't she pretty?

I love the way she blends right in with my other wood and gold bracelets. It's where jewelry and beauty meet function. I am all the way here for this wood watch movement.

Memo 189: An All White Party Invitation

To: All
From: Me
Date: July 28, 2015
Subject: The Right White
__________________________________________________________________________________

Nothing says summer time like an invitation to an all white party. The dress code is straight to the point and it should be pretty easy to execute. However, for some reason, lots of people can't get all white right.



There are a few things to note when it comes to all white ensembles: 
  1. All whites are not created equal.
  2. Pay attention to the fabric and textures of your whites. Stay away from cheap synthetic fibers and sheer fabrics.
  3. Please buy your size. Nothing ruins a look faster than pieces that are ill fitting.
  4. Not all whites match each other. Whites unfortunately come in all shades. Check out how your whites look together before you commit to the look.
  5. You do NOT have to wear white shoes. Nude, metallic or black are very good and reasonable options.


The moral of the story is simple: Invest in your whites. Care about your whites. Love on your whites.

Quick question. Does Diddy still host that infamous All White Party in the Hamptons? Asking for a friend who has an outfit ready and wants to go...


Wait, did someone say brunch?

TWP Approved! - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks 2015

It's that time of the year again!

What time, you ask? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The sale has been going on since July 17th but I didn't really get a chance to take a look at it until today. With that being said, a lot of things are only available in limited sizes. That means don't take too much time thinking about it. Nordstrom has an amazing return policy.

A few things to keep in mind about this sale:
  • The sale ends Sunday, August 2nd. Don't mess around.
  • There's a lot to look through online and in the stores but don't stress that. Break the sale down into sections (i.e. coats & jackets or skirts) and take your time evaluating the items. 
  • Don't skip the home goods section. I was there for a while!
  • Remember Nordstrom's has the dopest return policy in the land. Returns anytime, anyplace. Janet Jackson.
Check out my top picks from the sale:
