Samantha

Anything menswear inspired, I'm wearing. Anything with a plunging neckline, I'm wearing. So when I saw this white tuxedo vest at Forever 21, I had to have it. I paired it with this pleather zip mini skirt, also from Forever 21. I felt like Samantha Jones, the original boss.

I love strong women who know what they want and dress to kill. Samantha Jones, from Sex and the City, is the epitome of that. People have told me my confidence is intimidating and I always found that interesting. By loving myself, I'm making you uncomfortable? Well, I will always be me and stay bossed up. Shout out to the strong women in my life and the people who play, write and create strong female roles for us ladies to look up to.

Have a great week ++

Showing Up

One of my favorite broadway actors, Norm Lewis was asked for his advice on being successful and he said, "Just show up, have a presence and make a loud noise, because we all want to be heard". I feel like that applies to everything in life. Half the battle is just showing up, right? I have kept this in mind throughout the month calling it, "Fearless February". I've pushed myself to do things that I've been really afraid of doing and it's been SO fun. 

Being nervous and taking a chance is way better than staying comfortable.

So in honor of Fearless February, wear that outfit that you've been wanting to rock, talk to that person and go on that audition. Take the risk and fake it till you make it because at least you showed up.

Santorini Chic

Happy Friday and almost Valentines Day! It's so warm in Los Angeles, so it's time to take out all the summer clothing. This past summer I went to Greece with my best friend. The sunsets were stunning, the water was beautiful and it was an amazing time. We ate buckets of tzatziki and of course rode donkeys. I'm literally still laughing, thinking about our times in Santorini. My friend and I both bought a pair of Gladiator Sandals from a little store in back streets of Oia. I love wearing thigh high sandals and boots, but I always have a hard time finding them. These are awesome because they adjust to the wearers leg. 
It's time to go back! Greece, I'm on my way

Feeling Myself

I love Nicki Minaj but I'm obsessed with Nicki Minaj with Queen B. I love strong women who are at the top of their game. So in the spirit of these divas I tried to turn out a flawless look, I'm hilarious I know!

This see through hoodie top goes with everything and I love the relaxed, athletic feel. I added my Janet Jackson inspired leather baseball cap and I almost convinced myself I played sports. My favorite part of this outfit are these peep-toe booties. My favorite place to buy shoes is Nordstrom's Rack. I used to work there and I would always sneak away to look at shoes! They have a huge selection of sizes, going up to size 13-14, makes my size 10 feet feel tiny.

"I'm the shit, I want everyone to feel like this"
