Cheers to the last weekend in September! I'm really excited for October...for a few reasons, I can't wait to share (stay tuned). I have NO plans this weekend for the first time in months, so I can't wait to "go with the flow" instead of being on a schedule. Wishing you guys an amazing weekend! xo

Coco Rocha looked stunning at the The Met amazing is that orange lip?!

Paula Patton looked absolutely PERFECT at the prmiere of her movie "Baggage Claim" alongside hubby, Robin Thicke! Do I spot leather and lace? L-O-V-E.

Stacy Keibler looked amazing, per her usual!

My favorite NBA Couple, The Stoudermires lookeed fabulous in all black!

Diane Kruger nails it everytime especially in this Prabal Gurung gown. I love everything about this dress...perfection to say the least.

It looks like leather is taking no backseat this season, the fashionable Kardashian sisters, Kylie & Khloe showcased their leathered look. Get into that face...werkkk! 

Sarah Jessica Parker was a vision in this custom made gown by Prabal Gurung. I'm really loving the pockets especially, seems like that could be a possible trend to be on the look out for.

FASHIONABLE MOVIES: Trailer for Lifetime’s "House of Versace"

Set your DVRs fashion lovers for the "House of Versace" movie set to premiere on October 5th at 8/7c on the Lifetime Network. Check out the latest trailer released below!  

FYI-This movie is based on Deborah Ball’s book House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival. Since I haven't read the book (DISCLAIMER: Please don't judge me--post grad school's completion last month, I've taking a hiatus from reading BUT I have a list of books I plan to read beginning next month) anyway, I'm really excited to watch this movie! Lifetime always gives a pretty accurate portrayal of real-life events, so I know I won't be disappointed. Doesn't Gina Gershon make a stunning Donatella Versace?! The resemblance is striking.

WHAT I WORE: Casual Sundays

Sundays is my favorite day of the week, why?! Because I get the chance to regroup, relax, kickback and recap my entire weekend and plan for upcoming week. I can take time to just be and not worry about what event I have to attend. I usually go to church then do brunch with family/friends and watch television. It's something about Sundays that makes me feel good, and this Sunday was no exception. After a very busy weekend of running around from event to event, party to gathering and celebrating I got the chance to enjoy a champagne brunch at Ardeo Bardeo Restaurant with my bestfriend. They have an amazing brunch special which includes bottomless mimosas and the choice of an appetizer and main course for only $27, isn't that a total steal?! Anyway I had a watermelon & cucumber gazpacho for my appetizer and chicken & waffles with a unique spin on it. Everything was delicious, especially the "waffles" also known as donuts and the sausage gravy. Total swoon mode!  
September 22nd officially stamped Fall's arrival but I'm still trying to wear my strappy sandals for as long as I can plus I love my toe nail polish, lol. Anyway, I'm a lover of comfort these days so I slipped into something very casual for a very chill Sunday in the city. Get deets on my look below.

WHAT I WORE: Aviator sunglasses from ZARA/ Cross earrings from Asos/ Metallic shirt from Calvin Klein (old)/Boyfriend jeans from H&M (old)/ Jimmy Choo "Lance" strappy heels"/Mini grey bag by Phillip Lim for Target/

Super excited about my new bag from the Phillip Lim for Target collection, I got the chance to get a few pieces last week and few things this week. I'm thinking of creative ways to wear it so stay tuned. Anyway, sending everyone lots of positive energy and love x light for our first week in Fall! xoxo
