DIY Crochet Jacket – Brown

I’ve been creating Crochet Jackets for a few years. It started off as a design that I challenged myself to create because to my knowledge, these crochet jackets only existed in my brain. Over the years, I’ve created this crochet jacket in several colors. Although I started creating these jackets a few years ago, it’s always fun to work on a new color. I was recently inspired by my auburn box braids to create a brown one. Crocheting is my favorite pastime. Once I begin creating, I have to see…

DIY Crochet Jacket – Outerwear

I’m not exactly sure if I should call this crochet item a jacket, a sweater or a coat but nothing gets me more excited about style than DIY projects. I’ve known how to sew for as long as I can remember and learned to crochet at the age of 12. I find that I appreciate the items that I create much more than the items that I buy in stores. I wish I knew how to write an understandable pattern so I can help others to create but I did…

Custom Crochet Jacket | NYFW Day 1

Fashion Week is here again and this time, it’s all about the women! Day 1 wasn’t as hectic as I thought it could have been. Because of the blizzard, schools were closed as well as many jobs, therefore most people didn’t even bother leaving their homes, causing the roads to be clear for a smooth ride into NYFW. For Day 1, I decided to bring light to the gloomy day with my yellow custom crochet jacket. I crocheted this piece last winter as a way to challenge myself to do sleeves…

The Sequin Velvet Bomber Jacket That’s Perfect For The Holidays | Befitting Picks

If you’re a bomber type of girl and worry that holiday parties may require you to be too dressed up in clothes that are not really your style (as you probably wouldn’t have chosen that formal dress any other time of the year), textured bombers are a great way to dress casual, yet still be chic. One of my favorite textures is sequins because of the way it shines and I also love fabrics that feel smooth to the touch, therefore I’ve been a long time lover of velvet as well.…

Choosing Happiness | Yellow Faux Leather Jacket

Although I’m a fall baby, fall is not one of my favorite seasons. I’ve always preferred warmer months over cooler months. I don’t wear coats often and I’m that girl that doesn’t wear much clothes in the winter because I don’t get cold easily (utilizing blazers as jackets and occasional layering). Spring and summer makes me happy. The style, the bright flowers it exudes and the longer amount of daylight we receive keeps me a happy camper. Because I always choose happiness, I refuse to

Weekly Steals | 25 Bomber Jackets Under $75 | Back To Fall & School

It’s time to start preparing for fall as it is rapidly creeping up on us. I don’t wear jackets often (yes even during the winter) but when I do, I usually opt for lighter jackets and some of those light jackets include bomber jackets. At some point, you may decide to throw on a bomber jacket to run errands, go to class or to hang out with friends. They’re easy to style for day to day rituals. As a color lover, I believe in wearing all colors all year round. I don’t…

Happy Easter! |3 Ways To Wear A Trench Jacket

For some, easter marks the day Jesus rose again, for others easter is just the confirmation needed to welcome the spring season. Because Jesus rose again during the spring, today personally marks both occasions for me. As  winter came to term, I wondered if the unusual warm weather would result in spring being cooler than expected. Today’s weather proves that my prediction was correct. It’s not cold but it’s not exactly the typical warm spring day so I paired a trench with my striped shirt dress. There are 3 common ways…

2 Ways To Wear A Leather Biker Jacket This Spring

2 ways to wear a leather jacket this spring- with a skirt and with pants

Spring is near and I can feel it in the air! The leather biker jacket is a huge staple for these transitioning times. It protects you from the cool air that lingers while coming out of winter but doesn’t make you too hot as the temperature rises. If you are actually planning on wearing this when biking, I cannot stress how important it is that you are wearing a Shark S900 or similar helmet to stay safe on the roads! Leather jackets like this one are perfect for the Spring…

NYFW FW 2022 Kickoff

I kicked off New York Fashion Week at Long Island Sports Cars. I’ve never attended a Fashion Week event held in Long Island so I was excited to see what going out east has to offer. I decided to attend the event very last minute so I grabbed the grey crochet jacket that I crocheted a few years ago and paired it with a brown suede dress and blue thigh high boots. I must admit that I was a bit (definitely more than a bit) skeptical as most NYFW events…
