“WOC” Friendly Nude Swimsuits 2017

[metaslider id=400] What is "WOC" = "Women of Color". How many times have you wanted to find just a simple swimsuit that was "nude" and wasn't black? If you are like me its a struggle to hunt through handfuls of websites and stores just to find...

Finding My Roots

          For years I had always wondered exactly where did I come from? I remember in grade school through college teachers would always give an "About Me" essay and project. I would be confound because I wasn't able to trace further than America in my family...

Summer is in full force and sweltering hot especially in California. I get to where summer clothes all year long. Typically in the summer I like to wear brighter colors and mix with neutrals. I found this beautiful lavender tulle ruche bikini top at a thrift store and knew I wanted to take it from beachwear to day clothing. I love crop tops. Therefore I made the bikini top the focus and built an outfit to compliment. The 90’s fashion and nostalgia is back in a major way. I paired the black skort with the top and made the outfit look more edgy like a revamped “Clueless” look. “Clueless”  by the way is my fave movie of all time….”As If” : -) . This look is bold and daring with that soft lavender hue to make you look sweet as ice cream on a hot summer day.
