Going Green


Can you guys believe Christmas is 9 days away? Seems like this year flew by, and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than by snagging a forest green shaggy winter coat. I had been stalking this coat on Topshop for over a month. The minute it went on sale my little fingers couldn’t click “Send To Cart” any quicker lol. I absolutely love it. It adds that extra special touch, and is really warm too which is perfect as we head into winter. I’ve been purchasing a lot of outer wear pieces lately because these New York City winters can be brutal and I definitely don’t want to do them without a little style and sass.

Twenties


Your 20’s…. my my my the best years and sometimes feels like the worst years of your life. It’s like you’re not a kid anymore but inside you still feel like you are and aren’t… weird concept but you get my drift. I mean just think about it, in a span of 10 years you probably will have experienced every emotion imaginable or at least it feels that way, you move into your first apartment, you fall in love, get your heart broken and vow never to love that hard again. YEA RIGHT lol…. You move to foreign places, you land your first entry level job at the company you’ve always dreamed about, you grind...party and grind some more, you take risks you never even thought about, and do things that are so random you have to stop and question yourself. Your 20’s…. you start to create your own businesses, you start looking at the future in a way you never really thought you would because that was for the old people right??? You go crazy with your friends, tell secrets you vowed to take to the grave and you laugh boyyyyyyy do you laugh a lot.

I say all this to say, you find out who you are in your 20’s. It’s like you go on this personal journey with yourself to find out who and what makes you…. YOU. While I don’t turn 30 for another 3 years sometimes I find myself sitting back and looking at how much I have grown from 20 to now 27. I say to all you who are rushing… STOP. Enjoy the madness that makes you who you are in your 20’s. Allow yourself to feel every emotion you want to feel because your feelings are justified. Allow yourself to get hurt and learn from the hurt… trust me it always makes a better you in the end. Allow yourself to go on your own personal journey everything else is just background noise don’t listen to it. Get to know you and be happy with you. Allow your 20’s to teach, mold, and inspire.

Black Out


Hey ladies… so happy to be back. You guys have to bare with me as I’m getting adjusted to NYC living. It’s been officially 2 months since I moved here and I’m learning so much so fast, maybe a little too fast…like where to grab a great slice of pizza for cheap, how to hail a cab during rush hour, great vintage stores throughout the city, and of course what train cart not to get on due to the weird smell and lack of people lol,  but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’m so glad I made this decision I feel so inspired and at home… like this is the place I’m supposed to be. Although I do miss posting on a regular basis I’m definitely going to try my best to remain consistent. Take care loves talk to you soon.

Growth

I know it’s been a few days since my last post but I have been trying to get things settled since I made my big move…. What move you might ask?... Well,  remember I told you guys I had something super exciting to share in my last post here it is….. I moved to New York City. Since arriving here, I really haven’t had much time to sit down and blog. I’ve been ripping and running around trying to get everything settled and squared away. Although my things are still kind of stored away in my luggage, and I have shoes piled in a corner that need a place to call home, I am truly loving everything this city has to offer and I’m excited to hit the ground running. I won’t lie, as many times I have visited this city it’s definitely a different feel when you call it home. I always knew I wanted to return, after working for CBS a few years ago. This place just captivates you and forces you to be about your business because no one else really will. I say all this to say… go out there and make things happen for yourself. If you’re not satisfied where you are in life, CHANGE IT! People never grow in comfort zones. It’s when we take a leap of faith, risk it all, that our dreams start to come true and we start to see the potential we have within ourselves to conquer our fears.  Just do it! Stop evaluating the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s and just do it because life is short, very short and we all only have an allotted amount of time on our clocks to make all our dreams come true. Now, don’t get me wrong you will have some ups and some downs but it’s all a part of the journey.

Black-n-White



I’m back… I know I have been M.I.A for about 2 weeks, I had been battling a cold that had me out for a few days. All I was eating was chicken noodle soup and lots of orange juice. I think it’s the change of the seasons that had me under the weather. I’m feeling a lot better now still have a sniffley nose but I managed to take some time out to shoot a few pictures the other day. Blogging always seems to make the day better even when battling a cold.

On the flip side of things, I picked up these killer Steve Madden booties about a week ago. I was so excited when I  received them in the mail, because I was kinda  stalking the site since their release. Don’t judge me! Their rugged, have a great platform, and lace up past the ankles. My kind of bootie. Not to mention they scream PUNK! Which is normally not my style but it’s always good to switch things up every now and then. I have some exciting news to announce in the next few days so stay tuned for what’s to come. In the meantime, in between time enjoy today’s post.  Xoxo

Honesty


Before us lie two paths- honesty and dishonesty. The shortsighted embark on the dishonest path; the wise on the honest. For the wise know the truth;  in helping others we help ourselves; and in hurting others we hurt ourselves. Character overshadows money and lust. Trust rises above fame. Honesty is the best policy.

Risk Taker


What was a life lived if it was only lived in fear….

 

I recently stumbled across this quote while perusing Tumblr the other day and it immediately got my wheels turning. Whenever that happens I pick up the phone and call my bestie so we can discuss it. It’s always great to have someone you can call for anything and he is definitely that person. As we discussed what the quote meant it got us both into a deep conversation. Life is meant for risks and it’s through risks that we truly gain an understanding of who and what we are made of. Fear is the illusion that sets in our minds saying we cannot take risks, because it’s far to dangerous. By overcoming fear we can conquer our minds.  Thus capitulating ourselves into a fearless mentality. We have to conquer our minds.

I say this because there are so many things in life that you and I would love to do, that we are just too scared to do. What if I lose everything? What if I don’t have any money? What if he or she leaves me? What if… What if… What if…..? Fear of the unknown.  You and I have every tool necessary to be happy, all we have to do is find and use them. What if you lose everything? Well, that’s the joy of learning and starting over. What if you don’t have money? Well, that’s the joy of channeling your inner talents to provide a source of income. What if he or she leaves me? Well, there are 7 billion people on Earth I’m sure you will meet someone better.

A life lived in fear is really no life at all. Take risks guys and enjoy the journey along the way. I am!

B-Boy Stance


As I began posting these photos today Cassidy’s old song ‘B-Boy Stance’ immediately came to mind. “Chillan in the club in my b-boy stance…. lol lol “ Isn’t this throwback Jordan jersey everything? I wanted to switch the vibe up a little so I threw on some J’s and a snapback and called it a day. Seriously this is probably the most comfortable outfit I have ever blogged in. Shoootttt…. I could get used to this. Maybe not… but for now it’s a nice little twist.

On another note, this weekend is Labor Day weekend whooooo hooooooo!!! I don’t have any concrete plans set but I’m definitely excited to see what the weekend has in store for me. To keep up follow me on instagram @MsStarStyles. Toodles….

Layered Flavors


With Fall right around the corner I’m loving to play around with layering. The possibilities are endless and it’s definitely a great way to get the most use out of your wardrobe. While I’m still not ready to completely say good bye to summer a layered little number like this will be all the Fall I need.
