SFB Fall Look: Shades of Olive Green

Posted on: September 28, 2018

 

“I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.” — Yves Saint Laurent

I love taking great staple pieces and dressing them up and accessorizing! When you look good you feel even better. Loved this look that I styled. I wore this outfit to a Red Carpet event in New York City. It was super chic and fashionable. A simple look, but super glam all at the same time. I paired it with these stunning rose gold heels by Who What Wear. What I also love about this look its very versatile. You can dress it up, down, whatever you decide you’ll be looking fashionable and fabulous.

If your looking to style this for a more dressed down, casual look, pair it with some white sneakers and a jean jacket. For a more dressy night out look wear some fun black patterned tights, black or tan knee high boots and either a black blazer or even an overcoat. The possibilities are endless with this number. I would definitely wear this look again, and definitely style it in different ways. I’ll most definitely share via Instagram,  Pinterest, and my other social media platforms.

Positive Vibes and Affirmations in Style

Posted on: March 19, 2018

Everyday make an effort and look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself a pep talk and tell yourself:

I am STRONG

I am CONFIDENT

I am BRAVE

I am BEAUTIFUL (HANDSOME) 

TODAY will be AMAZING

I BELIEVE in myself

YOU are CAPABLE of AMAZING things TODAY and ALWAYS
I LOVE myself and others and I BELIEVE in all good things

I BREATHE in POSITIVITY and EXHALE worry and doubt

I CAN DO THIS 

I GOT THIS 

I choose to be Grateful for all that I have.

I have Powers beyond my wildest dreams.

My Voice is valuable and my Opinion matters.

I am Not afraid to Feel my emotions.

Say it, repeat it, believe it and keep those positive vibes alive always. Even when things may be going wrong in your life. Change your mindset. Change your attitude. Change the way of how you see things. Change your perspective and see how things will unfold. As much as you can try and smile. I know it’s easier said than done at times. When you shift your way of thinking, you become more at ease, calm, collected and you and your soul will find inner and outer peace. This will give you a better outlook on how you view life. Be good to yourself and others always. Be a good soul, create, exude, and give out good energy always. Be and practice kindness always. Be optimistic.

Everyday is a chance to become a better version of yourself. Not to say you aren’t great already but theres always room for growth and improvement. I firmly believe that in life we can never stop learning, we can never stop growing and we can always find ways to better ourselves. In order to do that, it all starts in how we think. Everything is all about perspective and your mindset. Focus on the positive and change your thoughts into positive affirmations. When you do so this can change your overall sense of being and way of life. Create an urgency for positive thoughts always. I know times can be tough and its hard to think positive. But all you can do is try. As the saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again….”  I believe in myself and I believe in you. Now it’s time for you to do the same. I challenge you do this the same. Remember to always have faith, stay positive, never give up and never stop believing in yourself.

SFB StreetStyle Chic: Denim Style

Posted on: November 18, 2016

 

So here’s a fun fact about me– during my college days I worked at Jasmine Sola in Boston, MA. While working there, I met some great friends, learned about fashion merchandising and got first hand experience working with the various brands we carried. In addition, I found myself becoming a denim specialist. I learned about various denim designers, the different styles and what style worked for each body type. When shopping for denim, I always say, “It’s always best to try on denim, see how the fit looks and if your derriere looks great their a winner!” Aside from that if they make you feel like a million bucks then it’s a win win. During my retail days, I enjoyed seeing my customers walk out of the store happy and feeling good about themselves, and I was part of that. I’ve always had a love for fashion, but working at Jasmine Sola made me realize my passion for fashion even more.  Since working at Jasmine Sola, my love for fashion and labels have evolved over the years. I will admit, I’m always on the hunt for a fresh new pair of denim to add to my closet. My favorite jeans back then were: Seven Jeans, Joe’s, Paige and Citizens For Humanity to name a few. Nowadays, some of my fave denim brands are: Frame Denim, DL 1961, BlankNYC Jeans, and Rag and Bone.

These ones right here have become a personal favorite lately. The distressed, ripped styled make these great for a chic street style look. As you can see here, I’ve paired these jeans with a simple button down top, loafers and a scarf. Although the look was so simple it was still comfy and stylish all at the same time.  This made for the perfect outfit to walk around the streets of Edinburgh during our visit to the UK back in late August, early September. You can wear this look just about anywhere and you’ll be looking fabulous! If you want to take this look from day to night, add some killer heels, a moto jacket and your favorite lipstick for a pop of color. And just like that you’ll be looking like a badass fashionista ready to hit the town! (Shop my favorites for a night time glam look) Shop my Look below.

ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN X SOCIALFASHIONISTABEAUTY

Posted on: September 9, 2016

Can you believe it’s already September? 

I feel like every year the Summer months just fly by. The Summer baby and lover in me wants to hold onto Summer for as long as I can. Luckily, the weather in New York City is still warm enough that we can still enjoy the summer heat just a little longer while longer….

When it comes to shopping for swim suits, I’m very indecisive and picky. I always have to make sure the fit looks right, and of course I want it to look flattering on me as well. So, when Eco Swim by Aqua Green contacted me to work together, I was excited to collaborate together, but was unsure about receiving a swimsuit without trying it on. But I’m happy I took the plunge to see how they create sustainable, fashionable swimsuits and clothing all at the same time.

sfb x eco swim 5

I received my cover-up and swimsuit just in time for our trip to Miami. The fit was just right and quite flattering to my body. My body type is fit but curvy.  I’m always overly conscious of my bust area. But, thankfully the fit was just right, and I loved the black polka dot design on the swimsuit. Not only was it cute but stylish and chic all at the same time.  The cover-up was great as well. It can be styled on its own, or paired with these cute shorts (as seen on me) or even a mini skirt. Here, I paired their Jacquard Collar White Cover-Up with some cute black and white patterned  shorts. [I’ll have all the links to each item listed below].  Overall, I’m happy with the fit and style of the swimsuit and cover-up. Even after a few washes the material has still held up and looks brand new. The quality on both the cover up and swimsuit is simply amazing.

What I admire most about Eco Swim is their message and mission behind their brand. I’m all about leading a healthy lifestyle and living in a healthy, safe world and they do all that and more. Eco Swim is a 4th generation family run business, that not only cares about the materials they use but how they are created and produced. They’ve created something that sustainable and fashionable with dual purpose. Consumers are given amazing quality and planet-friendly swimwear that ’s not only better for you but for the entire planet. How can you not LOVE that!Their motto is “reducing your carbon footprint in the sand.” The work they do is truly amazing!

Aside from creating fashionable, sustainable swimwear, Eco Swim strives to help keep beaches and rivers clean. ECO SWIM is committed to several beach and river cleanups each year through retail partnerships.”  [ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN] With the help and partnership of many retailers they have removed 6,600 lbs of trash from our oceans and waters and continue to do so.  Their mission and philosophy,

 

“ ECO SWIM is a way of life. It’s the journey of learning to love, respect, and have a sense of responsibility for our planet. It’s about appreciating the past, enjoying the present, and anticipating the future. It’s protecting what is important to you while creating a better world for tomorrow.” 

The more and more I learn and read about this company, I’m happy to have partnered and collaborated with them. I believe in the brand even more, seeing all the good they are doing for our planet, is truly remarkable. Their swimsuits and clothing are designed and created out of recycled nylons and other eco-friendly materials, which are all made in America. Thank you Eco Swim for collaborating and partnering with me on this post. All thoughts are my own.

Fashion Fridays: Winter Essential and Accessories keeping you warm but staying fierce and Fashionably Chic!

Posted on: January 22, 2016

Baby it’s cold outside…… BRRRRRRRR

With the cold weather upon us its time to layer up and bundle up . A couple months ago, I posted a photo on my instagram (@SocialFashionistaBeauty) where I was bundled and layered up for the cold weather. And a lot of you asked about my go to fashion wears during those cold, frigid winter days.

Ask and you shall recieve, here it is—here I’ll share my #FlashbackFriday winter photos of me and my fashion go tos, and my go to fashion essentials (price points, brands, etc) and places to shop these fab items to keep me warm but still looking fashionably chic. It may be cold outside but it doesn’t mean you can’t still look stylish and chic!!

Winter Fashion Wears {Essentials and Accessories}

 

 

 

   

 Camp Livingston Parka                                             Black Grey Plaid Tassel Classical Scarve

$115 MODEKUNGEN.SE                                            $9.90 $22 ROMWE.COM

Inverni Black Beanie With Fur Pom Pom                 Black Cashmere and Fur Pom Pom Beanie

$245 HALSBROOK.COM                                             $170 $215 BLACK.CO.UK

INVERNI Wool-Cashmere Gloves with Fur Trim      UGG Australia Shearling Bow Gloves

$240  BROWNSFASHION.COM                                    $135 www.uggaustralia.com

I’m all about the fur whether it’s real fur or faux fur,  it’s uber chic and fashionable.  Fur can definitely dress up even the most casual outfit. If you’re into fur too, try  and incorporate in your winter wardrobe. Fur is versatile too, whether your going casual or even dressed up, either way you’ll feel warm and cozy and look oh so fierce.

Whoever invented and designed the blanket scarf is a genius! I just love the blanket scarf, great for laying and bundling up for those cold days. The blanket scarf is so long with lots to work with, it can be work in many different ways . Dress it up, dress it down either way you’ll still look stylish and keep warm too! Try wearing wearing over your sweaters like a poncho, you’ll take you’re outfit to the next level.

Those big puffy coats aren’t always the most flattering and fashionable. But they definitely keep you warm. Sticking to fashion and staying on point, shop for a coat with fur details around the hood. Your street style will be on trend and on point, still feeling and looking comfy but you’re overall look on fleek.

  The items listed may be pricey, these are just examples I used on my polyvore collage. BUT don’t fear you can find these items for a more affordable cost.  Forever 21, Macy’s, Zara, H&M, and so many others all have variations of these winter fashion staples and more. Fashion is everywhere, so just go with your personal style and work it girl! These are just a few of my staples, and what I used to keep warm. I may like to splurge here and there but I won’t turn down a sale or bargain, I mean who wouldn’t!! 🙂

  Two of my favorite places that have the best bargains but still have the latest in fashion trends is at: Century 21 and Nordstrom Rack. I will admit I do like to splurge a little on designer wears, but Century 21 and Nordstrom Rack sell designer clothing, accessories and more for a fraction of the cost.  Great discounts and bargains guarenteed. Who could EVER pass up a good bargain, am I right!?!?!?!?

Have fun with your wardrobe. And remember just because it’s cold out, it doesn’t mean you can’t look chic, stylish, and fashionable. Enjoy and stay warm and cozy during these winter months.  For more fashion, style, tips, and trends stay tuned my loves!

What are your fashion staples you wear to stay warm?

Do you have a favorite winter accessories?
