Quickie!!! My Friend @ Cusp Gtown!!!!


If you are in the DC metro area and you stumble upon Cusp in Georgetown, trust that you are in great hands if you have the pleasure of meeting my friend and fellow HU(not HI :) graduate...Yashua!!!!! He's soooo great!!!!!! Check out his Cusp Bio:


Name: Yashua


Sign: Scorpio


At which CUSP boutique do you work, and what’s your position: Georgetown, Stylist. He's one of the best, if not the best stylist in that place!


Hometown: Yonkers, NY


Your favorite model? Naomi Campbell


How do you describe your personal style? Definitely a fusion of styles. I like to combine styles; tailored pants w/ sneakers and a t-shirt. Think: “Urban GQ”!


What are you wearing right now? Menswear shorts, Herm├ęs belt, sneaks, white tank and a hoodie.


Where do your style inspirations come from? My style inspirations come from everywhere. It could be something I’ve seen on someone or a piece in my closet I haven’t worn in years…I like getting dressed in the shortest amount of time; it’s when I get the most compliments.


Style vs. Fashion. Are they one in the same, or two different ideas? Style vs. fashion…two totally different ideas. Fashion includes the politics of the biz. Style is yours, you own that.


What do you think is the most “MUST of “must haves” at CUSP right now? Anything Elizabeth and James.


When you get dressed to go out, what music do you listen to? My “going out” playlist includes Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., Girl Talk, and N.E.R.D.


On a scale of 1-10, how much can a pair of shoes make or break an outfit? Definitely a 10. Shoes can take an outfit from day to night or ruin it all together. It’s funny; I usually start with my footwear. So so very true!!!


Go check out Yashua and tell'em Toni from HU with the pregnant belly sent ya!!!!

Your fashion motto? Everything isn’t for everyone. Well said!!!!

Bow-Dacious!!!!!!!!!!!





















Hot fall trend alert!!!!! Bows!!! Bows on collars. Bows on dresses. Bows on accessories! Wherever you can imagine, they are there! And looking ever so girly and cute, yet chic and sophisticated all at the same time! It's just another ode to the ever so popular 80's!!!!! I'm all for repeating fashion trends, but one I cannot and will not be repeating will be the big bows in the hair ,clips. No go, for that bow trend. That is NOT Bowdacious at all!!!!!!!! But check out some of the stylish finds I found at Anthro and Shopbop, that are totally, like Bow-dacious!!! Like, "Oh My God!!" Get ready for Fall!!!!!

Boyfriend Distressed!!!!




























Want to know the latest, hottest, craze in denim??? Check out the distressed boyfriend jean! Katie Holmes loves her pair; as she can be seen rocking them on a daily basis while romping around with Suri!!! They're casual, comfy, and urban chic all at the same time. They can be dressed totally up or down! And the best part? You can go rummaging through your boyfriend's closet or your dad's closet and pull out a pair of their old, grungy Levis' and bam, you re in style, rocking what's next in fall fashion!!! My bestie and I were doing this waaaay before it was trendsetting(remember the Uni Dance were we rocked our dad's tattered Levi's and paisley Gap shirts? We were so trendsetting!!!) Your boyfriend might be less distressed if you borrowed a pair of his worn out jeans or he could just foot the bill for a pair of $200 Current/Elliott jeans, found at Shopintuition.com or Shopbop.com! The choice is yours!!! Wear them with your favorite pair of ballet flats or jazz them up with a pair of hot booties(another fall favorite). Check out these styles found at Jcrew,shopbop, and shopintuition and they won't hurt your pocket quite as much!

Tee + Bling = TeeBling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


















Burnt out tees, tissue tees, basic tees...V-neck, scoop neck, crew neck...So many variations all so easy to wear and so easy to dress up or down!!!! I'm a Cali girl, so tee shirts are my favorite staple and I have been noticing fashion has taken on a more laid back, Cali girl approach when it comes to basic items, such as the tee. To dress up a basic tee, try adding a little bling!!!! Big, bauble, bold, necklaces are the perfect way to add a little spice to that plain tee!!!! Jcrew has really embraced this new fashion trend and I'm a huge fan too!!!!! Check out these pairings for inspiration. But check places like American Apparel for all sorts of colors and styles of tees, at a fabulous price. For inexpensive, expensive looking blingage, look no further than Forever21 and Urban Outfitters, even the Gap and Banana have fabulous finds when it comes to neck candy and they are always having a sale!!!! Be on the look out for chain necklaces, they are all the rave for must have Fall accessories!!!!!
