Tous les jours je suis, HUSTLIN! I couldn't have said it better. I been working long hours at work, starting my own company, trying to save, as well as pay off my debt. So money and time has not been on my side. I'm on a tight budget and a tight timeline but I wont dare let that hold me back. Imma keep movin', shakin' and hustlin' everyday!
Nothing's more fun then dressing up, getting real cute and having a mini photoshoot with your girlfriends, then going back inside to watch chick flicks and have a margarita or two, right? Well when boredom strikes the L&F home this is exactly what we do!! And we enjoy every minute of it!
To us, it's just like we are getting dressed to go out and have a night on the town... minus the actual going out part. Besides, who says you cant dress up to stay home? And what girl doesn't like to look beautiful, even if its just to show it off to your girlfriends?
Come on ladies... we know you do this. And if you dont, then try it!! Have a girls night in! Get dressed, get drunk, get fierce and take a whole lotta pics (photoshoot style)!!! It will be the most fun you've had in a while!!

It's almost my favorite time of year - FALL!!! The cooler days are quickly approaching and I am one happy girl. I love fall fashion more than any other season because I can layer, layer, layer, until I can't layer no more without people looking at me like I'm crazy. Layering on hot summer days is bad for obvious reasons so I fight the urge to layer during these times so that I don't get those "is she crazy" or "does she know how hot it is out here" stares. But sometimes I'm like eff it, I'll wear what I want, because in the words of one of my fashion icons Rachel Zoe, "I'll sweat for fashion!" or freeze for that matter. As long as I'm cute! Ha Ha Ha!
Anyways, layering your outfits is super fun and the end result looks so cool! It's exciting to play with pieces that you already own and see how the different lengths and textures, thickness and colors can come together and be so chic. When done right, layering is instantly fashionable. You don't have to dress it up with accessories or try too hard. Simply throw on your layers, pull out your confidence and hit the streets! You'll be the baddest thing walking!
Yep! Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is over!!! The people watching and style stalking commenced Saturday as Lola and I strolled through Lincoln Center snapping pictures and being featured in other peoples pictures (pics to come). Aside from hangin at Lincoln Center, I also went to a couple of shows which I will be featuring on the blog over the next couple of days.
Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot for my first MBFW show! How exciting?!!! The Allusions by Alekay swimsuit line features high-waist bikinis with each swimsuit being uniquely different from the others. There was some mesh and frill, cheetah print and cutouts! I was enamored by many of the pieces as I sat with the other photographers snapping away. It was a beautiful collection and I can't wait to rock my Allusions by Alekay swimsuit on my vacation this winter.
I've always loved the color and cut of this vintage blazer, but for some reason I just never reached for it. Then one day I came up with the brilliant idea to cut the sleeves off. Sleeveless blazers are definitely trending right now so I was right on the money when I thought to go under the knife with this bad boy a couple months ago. Now I wear it more than ever!
Anywho, the look is so simple to achieve. My tailor charged me $40 to cut off the sleeves and take in the back of the blazer a bit — I've lost a couple pounds since the previous post.
Simply head over to your nearest thrift store and find a great vintage blazer that you love (avg 7-15$). If you want the blazer to have the same winged, structured effect that mine has then be sure that the blazer you pick has good, sturdy shoulder pads inside. The stiffer the shoulder pads the better. Then make sure that your tell your tailor, that you want to leave the pads in the blazer. If he/she doesn't understand then just show him a picture of my blazer... we all know that tailors are visual people.
