High/Low Fashion: Sporty Biker Chic Vibes

Posted on: April 7, 2017


Enjoying a lovely Saturday with these two beauties Loren from @EnlightenedbyBravery (Gigi New York Clutch)  and Amanda from @Everythinghurts.me (Gigi New York Satchel)

I must say this was one of my FAVE outfits I styled for a fun outing with my girlfriends. It’s the perfect casual chic outfit that’s still comfortable, simple yet so fashionable all at the same time. I love to mix high and low fashions to create such a comfortable look that’s great for a day out with the ladies. This look is great for any outing really, especially if you still want to look stylish but still comfy. What’s great about this outfit, everything seen on me are great transitional pieces for the Fall or even Spring. I say Fall because the olive leather jacket is a great piece to wear in the Fall for it’s deep autumn color tones plus you can style this with just about any outfit. The pops of colors and light weight garments I wore would be perfect for a Spring day. No matter how or when you you wear an outfit like I did here, you’ll be so comfy and looking so fly everywhere you go! I always strive for comfort first, but of course I keep it classy, stylish and always chic!

This leather jacket has to be one of my fave jackets at the moment. I absolutely love the Olive green color with it’s biker style details, it’s the perfect balance between edgy and chic. Another plus, not only does it look amazing it’s super affordable. My wedge Nike sneakers I wore were are not only   super cute but comfortable as well. They give me a little height but yet I don’t feel any discomfort at all unlike other wedge sneakers. I’ve experienced discomfort with other wedge sneakers before.  Where the sneakers were purely for style and very rarely do I where them now. But these babies I could walk in them for hours and my feet don’t hurt at all. As for my handbags, and if you don’t know by now, I’m a HUGE handbag LOVER which goes hand in hand with my love for shoes. But those two topics will be saved for another post coming VERY SOON!

If you know me by now, then you know that I’m one who likes to change up my look every now and then. I’m all about experimenting, especially with my hair. Especially since I work in an industry where I need to stay up to date with current trends. For today’s post, I’m sharing with you all my hair journey. I will spare you the horrible, ratchet and embarrassing photos of my hair. I’ll just give you a short backstory behind my hair.

Let’s just say, my hair has been thru hell and back. Well, maybe not hell, but not in the best state. Thanks to the hair God’s and some research, I managed to find Kathy, thanks to her my hair has been brought back to life. But here’s a little back story before Kathy came to my rescue.

Prior to my meeting and introduction with Kathy, my hair had been thru a lot. My bad hair days started with a professional hair dye gone wrong, extremely wrong. In all the worst ways possible. I wanted to go a little lighter for the Summer and my previous hairstylist didn’t listen to what I wanted. He didn’t refer to my photo and decided to give me something completely opposite from what I wanted. He took my brown hair to platinum blonde. Can you imagine me with Platinum Blonde locks?! Trust me, it wasn’t a pretty, on me at least. Other Filipina’s and others can pull it off, yes, but I myself could not. And I wasn’t happy at all. When I ran my hands thru my hair, the ends no longer felt silky smooth. But rather, rough and like hay. My hair was officially damaged and fried. It needed a HUGE detox and time to breathe before going back and fixing it. I spent the next week at work and basically everywhere I went wearing a huge hat on my head at ALL times. But I was at my breaking point, and I just couldn’t live with my hair looking a hot mess for another week. [Due to scheduling, he couldn’t fit me in to fix the job he so horribly did wrong] I was left with no choice. [I haven’t done this in quite sometime] I went to the drugstore bought a box dye and dyed my own hair. Now putting my hair thru more shock and damage. I took it back to the dark side. Due to my hair being overly damaged and over processed, some green started to show after I dyed it. The color I picked up was Jet Black. My hair had gone thru so much in a short amount of time, it started to react to all the damage being done to it. My hair was fried, overly dyed and all sorts of damaged. It needed some TLC and fast!

After much research and just being fed up with my hair, I reluctantly was able to get an appointment at yet another local hair salon. There I met, Kathy. She looked at my hair, listened to me and knew just what to do. I brought in a photos for her to refer to.  She loved the fact I brought in photos, great for reference and inspiration. She told me, it’s always best when clients bring in photos, they not only make for great references, but another way to really visualize what the client wants. What I loved about her is that she’s brutally honest. She’ll tell you right off the bat if that particular hairstyle will suit you or not. She’s not afraid of telling you NO! She wouldn’t want her clients walking out of her salon, with 1. A bad hair do and 2. A Bad hair dye job and have her name written all over that, NO WAY! I love her way of thinking. Double plus in my book, I’m all about that, honesty is the best policy, am I right?! Kathy is amazing at what she does, she’s like a chemist in her own lab, well salon. She knows what colors to mix and what will look perfect for that particular client.  Not only does she know her colors she gives a FABULOUS Lob haircut and blowout! I’m just so happy and blessed to have found her when my hair really needed it. Since meeting her last winter, she’s given me Spring/Summer ready hair and now Fall-Ready hair. I absolutely love my lob hairstyle and my perfectly rich Chocolate bronde (Brown and slight blonde) balayage color.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t let just anybody touch my hair let alone color my hair. But after speaking with Kathy, telling her my worries, what I had gone through and what I’m looking for, I knew I was in good hands. Even after my hair woes, Kathy brought my hair back to life.

 

Needless to say, every time I come into the salon, I’m immediately put at ease. And now, every time I leave the salon my hair looks AMAZING and I feel fabulous. Thank you so much Kathy for giving me gorgeous hair and bringing it back to life. If you’re ever in the Jersey City/Hoboken area, and looking for an AWESOME stylish, with killer skills and a fabulous personality be sure to make an appointment with Kathy and the fabulous ladies of the Two 01 Salon. Located at: 404 14th Street, Hoboken, New Jersey.
