Welp! Two years on the books as of today! How crazy is that?! It gets better, busier and more amazing with each year. All two of them!

This year I took my talents to DC to highlight an amazing U Street boutique, Lettie Gooch, and meet my DC followers.

Of course, a small photo shoot took place at the beginning of the event. Who could resist taking a few snaps in front of these dope gold "WERK" balloons. I mean, really?!

Later on in the evening, I begged and pleaded with two guests to let me werk them out in Lettie Gooch attire. They were honestly so happy to do it and werked these outfits!

Surprise! You have just been werked!

I was so thrilled to see the ladies from the DMW come out to get inspired, toast to the weekend and spend a little pocket change all in the name of fashion.

Little known fact about me: I was in the restaurant service industry for roughly three years while I was in college and a year after I graduated. So, I have a great appreciation for the dining experience and amazing service. I was pretty good if I may toot my own horn. Toot Toot!


This look is a nod to my serving days.

Memo 153: Floral Transparency

Well, what do ya' know. Florals are in this season and guess who already had some floral in her closet?
That's why it's so hard for me to "clean" out my closet. These trends come back over and over again!


My rule of thumb for a clothing purge is to only let go of the items that no longer fit and are worn out. Even some worn pieces can be revived. Remember that go to tailor and shoe cobbler that you have on speed dial? Yeah, use them.


Other than that, most things stay in the closet to be loved on just one more time.
