Well, here we are back at the end of another year. One Question…
HOW DID WE GET HERE?!?
Seriously. How?! I feel like I took a nap on January 1, 2016 and woke up on December 30, 2016.
I’m not going to even sit here and lecture you about the importance of being present. I won’t even mention how time waits for no one and you have to live every day like it may be your last. 2016 was out for blood, sweat and tears this year! I’m not going to even slightly hint at the fact that you should be going full speed ahead with any goals that you have set for yourself. Nope, not going to do it. You already know that.
I’ll just give you what you came here to get.
Here are the top five looks from The Werk! Place in 2016 according to Followers+:
I wore this during NYFW and it was a huge hit! Sophia Webster thought so, too. I mean you really can’t go wrong in the Mila Sandals and a sequin striped pencil skirt.
Sending some love to James Anthony for putting his magic touch on these photos.
Memo 248: A Tale of Two Maxis
Pleated metallic skirts were a huge trend this year. Don’t tell anyone but I’ve had this BCBG skirt since before I started blogging and rocked it again like it was new.
My London Town crony, Paul Akinrinlola, put his camera to werk on this look.
Memo 241: Caped Crusader with Lavish Alice
What can I say? I like it when I can incorporate a soft bra into a look.

Memo 263: Three Reasons to Add A Statement Coat to Your Wardrobe
I am obsessed with this coat. OBSESSED. What I love most about this coat is that it’s an instant style elevator. Essence Magazine just featured this look online here.
Shout out to Guanchy Lopez for blessing this look with his lens.
Memo 262: This Girl Is On Fire
Last but definitely not least, this look featuring this dope ass’d coat from Narciss came in strong at number one! Obviously, during the winter, it’s all about the outerwear.
And another one! This photo comes courtesy of Guanchy Lopez. He’s dope ya’ll!
2016 was such a year of transition for me. I spent more than half of the year getting comfortable being uncomfortable.
I just want to thank you all for being there with me as I’ve been trying to figure it all out. Contrary to popular belief, I ain’t got the answers, Sway! None of them. However, I have been and will continue to put footsteps to faith.
Enjoy the last few moments of 2016 and raise your glasses to 2017!
Shoot Your Shot ’17. Coming Soon…
