How to Have Fun Wearing Black

On this past Saturday April 30th I had the pleasure of speaking at the Dream Girl Summit 2016 on you guessed it fashion! This summit was all about empowering girls ages 10-17 on feeling beautiful. I was given the title “Fashion Guru” and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It is very important to lift up not only African American girls, but girls of all colors.


Here are some pictures from the event.


When I was asked to be apart of this summit I knew exactly what I was going to wear.. all black with a splash of color. I love the name of this blog, thus I decided to get a t-shirt made with its name.  I paired my tee shirt with a JCrew Faux Leather Pleated Midi Skirt.


The last word is Chronicles, sorry!

Springtime in NYC consists of very warm days. This wasn’t one of those days. To stay chic and honestly warm, I paired the entire outfit with my DIY army green jacket. I’ve been collecting patches for a while, but couldn’t decide when to debut my masterpiece. This summit was the perfect time to show these young ladies about having their own style.




I’m a star



To complete the entire outfit I wore my Nike Iridescent Blazer sneakers. I first saw these sneakers on Jenna Lyons the Creative Director and President of JCrew and I had to have them. (I waited on line for 2 hours, however I was #2 on the line.Determination pays off!)





I am beautiful!
