Shopping My Closet

This year, I’ll be investing in more quality, classic pieces and leaving the trendier pieces aside. My outfit above can be easily copied. As basic as it appears, I think the chunky necklace gives it a nice edge. My lovely Auntie in London actually gave this to me when I visited her. However, you may find comparisons at any local boutique. Don’t be afraid to shop discount stores (99 cent stores/ Pound Shops). While quality isn’t the greatest, some of their costume jewelry are super fun & cute!

Stay blessed

 

Sunday’s Best: Color Blocking

Happy Sunday! Here’s my takeaway from today’s sermon: “How much is your life worth?” The story of Joseph being sold by his brothers for 20 pieces of silver (found in Genesis in the Bible) can bring much revelation to your life. Although his brothers sold him for 20 pieces of silver, God had a different plan for his life. Had he not been sold, he wouldn’t have been 2nd-in-command in Egypt. I challenge you today to dig deep into that uncomfortable situation you may be in. No more complaining! Do you know how much your life is worth? Whether you believe it or not, your life has been redeemed with the precious blood of Jesus! God will surely bring the beauty out of your uncomfortable situation. Just have faith!

So one month into Zara’s semi-annual sale & they’re still marking down items! I purchased this striped skirt on Black Friday but couldn’t seem to figure out how I wanted to style it. Well, thanks to Skinny Hipster, I went & purchased this top from Zara yesterday, which was also on SALE! I paired it with one of my favorite shoes at the moment- these gold Giuseppe pumps. The beauty about metallic pumps is that they go with pretty much everything- a true staple piece. They make basic outfits look spectacular. Seeing as though this is my first time wearing these shoes, they were extremely uncomfortable, as they weren’t broken into yet. But who cares when you have on Giuseppes! 😉

Hi! I’m Christina

Sunglasses: The Loft // Wool Poncho: Thrifted // Earrings: H&M

Hi Guys! So I thought it would be a good idea to officially introduce myself on my blog! My name is Christina.  It wasn’t until a major recent event in my life (moving back to NYC from Philadelphia after almost 6 dreadful but significant years) that I gained inspiration to start revealing my passion for fashion on online content. I get my inspiration from an array of bloggers, magazines, runway shows, and political/ entertainment figures. I spend more than enough time reading my favorite blogs and researching new trends.

What will be featured on my blog? Um mainly outfits from my closet(s). If I can find the piece or something similar online, I’ll be sure to link it. Otherwise, post a comment or email me and I’ll give you exact details. I’ll also be sharing with you both my spiritual & healthy living journey, so stay tuned for that.

Who will be featured on my blog? Me! & snapshots of my life.

How often will I display content? My goal is NO LESS than 2x a week. If more, great! If less, shame on me!

Camo in Times Square

Jacket: Forever 21 (HERE )// Shirt: H&M (Here)// Jeans: Forever 21// Clutch: Forever 21// Heels: Yves Saint Laurent (YSL)

I really wanted to get some experience taking photos in public and seeing as though it was 11:30 pm, I figured Times Square would be the perfect location for night-time lighting! Fortunate for me, it was beautiful outside & the rain just ceased. These photos were taking in the subway on 42nd & 7th ave and outside in from of H&M.

Stay blessed!

Suit (Blazer & Skirt): Anne Klein// Blouse: Bebe (Similar, super cute one Here)// Shoes: Zara (On SALE now Here) // Poncho: Vintage// Bag: Coach //  Watch: Michele (Here)

So- This suit, believe it or not, ran me about $18 at Burlington Coat Factory. Who knew? Auntie Did. & now so do you! Thank me later.This may not hold true for every BCF but I’ll tell you this little secret- the one in Center City, Philadelphia (11th & Market Streets) surely has great deals. That day I think I paid $75 on 4 suits (Anne Klein, Calvin Klein & Tahari). Oh & this poncho was $22 from Buffalo Exchange Consignment!

Be blessed!
