UNDONE.

Thursday, September 29, 2016










Boyish vibes topped with a little bit of skin. Balance is key. Do what feels right, be comfortable. Add a fun element, like this red bandana that has slowly become a staple in my wardrobe.

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: UPREHLN

Sunday, September 18, 2016

I want to introduce to you guys one of my favorite boutique brands, UPREHLN from my home town of Staten Island, NY. With a major focus on design technique and details, this brand is targeted at the sophisticated street style market. The pieces are simple, stylish, and timeless. The main market for this brand is menswear, but trust me you'll be seeing me rocking a few of their new pieces! 

Read below for a brief description of their newest collection: #SDCFall1617 Campaign (Part I).

Check out their site: UPREHLN.COM



From the CEO & Designer himself, 

"This collection is the Part 1 of the #SDCfall1617 campaign. The majority of these pieces are manufactured with 'Pigment dyed' textures, monochromatic designs and color tones. All very sleek clean and comfortable styles, most hues where inspired by military color pallets (earth tones). All the designs, colors etc.. are a reflection of my own personal style (via @socialclublu). 

The military camo was a big inspiration for this collection mixed with some sleek everyday street style. My Goal is to design timeless garments that challenge current trends by not matching just color coordination (matching is my pet peeve) and by making the consumer feel stylish, comfortable without being (the same) oversaturated with trendiness.

TRENDCAST: COLDER SHOULDER

Friday, September 16, 2016

What's the best way to make your outfit scream effortless & sexy at the same time? A little shoulder action of course!

As you guys have probably seen in my earlier post Cold Shoulder , I am nothing short of obsessed with this emerging trend. Bare shoulders first peaked in the fashion industry during the 70s. Prior to that, women were shamed for showing their shoulders. Can you believe there was even a time in history when a woman exposing her elbows was considered provocative? PSHTTTTT.

The off'-the-shoulder trend reemerged in recent years and has taken high fashion and street style by storm. In the past few weeks, I have noticed a new off-the-shoulder trend, or should I say more of an updated version? It combines that effortless "just got out of bed and ran out the house because I'm fashionably late to everything as per usual" look (AKA ME) with the sexy and sultry elegance of the already established trend. Rihanna was one of the first people spotted rocking a twist on this trend, and of course it has blown up ever since, seen on the streets, on the runway during NYFW, and all over Instagram in various forms.

See some of my favorite off-the-shoulder looks below

NYFW SS17: SNAPCHAT FLITERS GET THEIR TIME IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT THE DESIGUAL SHOW

Thursday, September 15, 2016

It's not new to us that Snapchat filters have taken the selfie to the next level. With their infamous "dog filter", gold fluttery butterfly filter, and flower crown. It's safe to say that you've seen at least 5 floating around Instagram or the internet in general.

Who would've thought wed be seeing these infamous filters come to life on the runway this NYFW? Desigual stepped out of the box and decorated their model's faces to imitate some of Snapchat's most popular filters instead of wearing makeup. I thought this was such a cute and clever idea! An innovative and exotic addition to their World Traveller inspired collection.What do you guys think?

See images below.

WHAT TO WEAR: BABY SHOWER EDITION











I am seriously obsessed with the off-the-shoulder trend. It's the perfect amount of flirty. Pair a cute denim top with a simple black pencil skirt and complimentary pink heels with cute details to elevate the look. Keep it simple with accessories, as the outfit is already bold enough.

I wore this outfit to my cousin's baby shower. We don't know the sex yet, so this was a great outfit to incorporate both blue and pink. It's baby shower appropriate while still being fun and true to my style.

BRITTANY THE RIVETER.

Tuesday, September 6, 2016














You guys know I love mixing trends. Bringing past influences into modern looks and reinventing zeitgeists of the past. I have a few different moods that define me. One of my staples is my "Rosie the Riveter meets Pin-Up" mood, which is clearly expressed in this look. There's something so classic and chic about a cat-eye, mixed with plaid, red, and denim. It's bad ass yet gentle. AKA ME.

From Rosie the Riveter's feminist symbolism to the glamour of a pin-up girl, I love everything about both ideals and how they celebrate womanhood. Whether you feel comfortable walking out the house practically naked or if you prefer being covered head to toe, the important thing is that it is your prerogative to dictate what you do and don't wear. It is not society's choice, it is not your parent's choice (unless you're still a minor of course), it is not your significant other's choice. It is yours, and yours alone. 

I used to constantly second guess myself. Especially my fashion sense, because I let others opinion's get to me. I never dressed like everyone else. Not only could I not afford to keep up with the latest trends, I was never the type to do (& wear) what everyone else did. This lead to a lot of mockery and jokes, of course. Even to this day, my friends and family make comments about what I wear. The only difference is that now I just laugh it off. I was once in a relationship with a guy who was so insecure that he would try to give me rules and regulations on my wardrobe. God forbid I wore a crop top without high waisted pants that left no skin showing, or leggings without a shirt that covers my behind, or a shirt with a neckline that sits "too low." For a while I thought, "let me be a good girlfriend and sacrifice for the man I love." AND THEN I WOKE UP! I kicked his a** to the curb real quick once I realized what was really going on. Not only was he manipulating me and being a controlling boyfriend (that's NEVER a good thing, ladies!) He was lowering my self esteem and taking me off my path to success, after all my passion is fashion. Glad I dodged that bullet.

After all, when people try to project negativity onto you, it's only a reflection of how they feel about themselves. It's never about you. I was always one to create my own path, and it honestly took me a while to realize that was a great thing.  After all, that's probably why I'm here right now talking to you.
