What’s interesting is fashion week abroad?  

When you think of fashion week, you compare all of the latest trends and styles. I honestly love fashion week it helps me to bring out my fashion to a whole new level. I feel like Paris Fashion Week helped me mold my style. Sometimes I want to fit in. I want to buy certain clothing, jewelry, or shoes to be popular. Even to label me by putting myself in this box with other influencers. Guess what that’s not going to make me successful or popular. I need to be myself. 

True story, I was looking on Valentino website to see if I could buy a pair of shoes. I search and search for websites with discounted Valentino shoes. I was so determined to get these shoes at a discounted price. Honestly, These shoes were not in my budget. Even if I put it on my credit card, what does it say about me? It says I want to obtain a lifestyle that I can obtain with my budget. It’s not ideal. It still was way too much but guess what I can always dream one day. I can afford these shoes. So fashion is not about looking rich with designer clothing and shoes. It’s about whether your style is different. Because if i were to break my banking account is not showing my audience how to be stylish. Or by being authentic with my style. I’ve shopped my closet for Paris fashion week. Bought a few items that were under $100. I think these brands overcharge you for their name, not the item itself. I refuse to pay over $100 unless it’s the best item on me! 

My advice is to stay within your budget. But buy clothing that still looks like a designer not where your breaking the bank. I’m always learning how to be different from my ever-changing style. My style is always on budget or frugal! 

See you next time! 

Paris Fashion Week Day 4

Paris Fashion Week has been very mellow for me this season. I really have experienced not only fashion but the city. I think that when we have an agenda in my mind we make a list to do this and that. We usually don’t do anything on our agenda. I spent hours trying to get my agenda in order for Paris fashion week and leisure. The only thing I did on my agenda was going to my favorite place the Galeries Lafayette the big mall in Paris. It’s literally my go-to for getting all my eating, shopping, and souvenirs. As my time comes to an end in Paris, I only have one more night.  And I’m going to live it up! I seriously don’t want to leave!

Paris Fashion Week: Day 3

Hello All, 

What I love about Paris Fashion Week is that I can literally emulate Parisians style to my own style. Even though my style is simple I can pick a trend by incorporating within my wardrobe. It’s a real skill! For my look, I wore Eva Mendes pleather green skirt that I adore. I was searching and searching for where I could find a green jacket that can go with this skirt. For real, I didn’t need to go far. I had this jacket from the gap which was not the same green. On the runway, I have seen the trend where some fashion collections aren’t doing the matchy-matchy looks. There picking colors in the same or in a similar color family. Guess what?!?! I saved my money by using my leafy green jacket from Gap which is comfortable and warm. 

I love that I could wear this look all day! I had my edgy sparkly booties that were super stylish. I got so many compliments from Parisians that wanted to know where I got these shoes. They were so surprised I got them on sale from Aldo. Nice right! I had my go-to lace top from h&m. For this fashion week, I learned that I can wear a lot of my stuff in my closet just making my whole look super new. Now it’s your turn, Go out there and shop your closet!
