Fashion Camp.

My last day at fashion camp with Madiana and Rebecca Margao was bittersweet. It was my first photoshoot but my last class with these wonderful ladies. They've taught me a lot in these twelve weeks and exposed me to things I never knew about. We visited many boutiques, stores and photo shoots. I got to experience and feel what it would be really be like to be an established stylist. They've opened a lot of doors for me and I thank them very much!

Style Post - Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Dinner

I have been invited to my boyfriend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. This would be the first time meeting his parents so I am really nervous. I have been trying to find an outfit that is classy yet still reflects my style! This is what I came up with, a black peplum dress, two toned black and gold heels, a black clutch, simple studs and a dark red lip. 

Happy Thanksgiving loves!

Fall/Winter Must Haves

Fall Must Haves

These are the ULTIMATE Fall/Winter MUST HAVES! Everyone should have these items in there closet this winter.

The infinity scarf - Thrown over any outfit can add a pop of color, or jazz up a more minimal look. Infinity scarfs come in many colors, patterns and fabrics. 

Jackets - A jacket paired with a leather pant and boots, simple yet chic. Peplum jackets are especially popular this Fall/Winter, well peplum anything is! Leather jackets also compliment almost anything!

Shoes- If you don't have a pair of loafers yet, you must be hiding under a rock! Loafers are a simple shoe but make a statement with the patterns, prints and studs added to them. Steve Madden makes the most comfortable and stylish loafers there are. Combat boots are also a hit. These Jeffery Campbell spike eye stud boots are amazing. 

Leather tights/pants- Leather keeps you warm in the winter but is also very stylish! These leather high waisted tights from American Apparel are cute and can be paired with anything.

Accessories- Gloves, beanies and a statement clutch, MUST HAVES.

Lipstick- A dark red or a beige or nude pink, perfect for the fall/winter.

Boutique Review: Passport

I visited Passport boutique in NW DC last weekend. There were some major hits in the mens section but some misses in the women's. The owner, Karoush was very nice and informative, but his choice of space and location was elusive. You would probably pass right by it, not even knowing it was a clothing store, I sure did. He converted his home into a boutique, so it looks like an ordinary house. His mens pieces were very nice, stylish and tailored.

His women's and mens prices varied, mens being more expensive then the women's. Overall it was a great boutique and a great experience, I would visit it again!

La Petite Marmoset

This past Saturday I visited Katherine Martinez at her fab showroom in DC "La Petite Marmoset". She has an online store that sells redesigned vintage clothing and I must say I was in love with every piece the model had tried on! The dress in the picture above was one of my favorites! It was a sheer black almost witch type look (chic witch).

Ataale (EH-TAL-LEH) sidenote, remember the name.

So I am over a family memebers house two weekends ago and come across this picture calling my name from a night stand. I pick it up, stare at it and instantly the word Ataalé POPS into my head. See, ive been looking for a good, eye catching blog name. I’m new to this “fashion blog scene” and was pretty confused. My family is from Ghana, in West Africa, and in one of the main languages spoken there ” Ataalé ” means clothing. This picture sparked something inside of me because I have been thinking of a blog name for months now, yes months. I love this picture because I think everyone who looks at it has a word instantly pop in there head like I did.. Wait.. let it pop.. ok.
