How to Master the Urban Street style

Hello friends welcome to my blog, I hope you’ve been having a fun and wonderful summer.
So, Today we’re talking everything urban from a New York perspective.yay!!My city!!

So you know we’re gonna have a blast right!

let’s get started shall we.

I’ve been wanting to write this post for quite some time now and all sumner I’ve been researching this topic for ideas however nothing really stood out to me.

See, as I stroll through the internet looking for urban style I was surprised what i stumbled upon. Altough I found  myself gravitating towards all kind of different stylish looks, ooing and awwing over the latest fashion trends from some of the best  bloggers out there,I realize that none of them where really truly urban or even close.


Picture of model style by me I call this look Urban chic.
I saw plenty of street styles and boho chic styles all claiming to be urban but are not.Although, these blooggers all look fantastic in their fashion attire ‘while twirling around and posing fiercely in  colorful vintage outfits, holding their Starbucks coffee” very rarely did I stumble upon a true urbanista I know they’re probably out there, girlfriend- however I haven’t found any.

Well, if you happen to know of one or two urban bloggers please share their info below. Cause, Inquiring minds want to know, Darlin

This look is boho often mistaken for urban

So let’s start with the basics -What is Urban fashion

The Urban look like every other look  varies. We have Urban street wear, Urban chick, Urban hip hop and everything in between.

Urban style should be a combination of old black Harlem street style mixed with modern and hip hop style. Although main Street fashion have adopted this style as theirs- please know this trend was inspired  by Black fashion forward fopks from Harlem. You can read more about the history of Urban fashion here if you’re interested and if you are a urban blogger you should definitely know the history of this trend.

 The above picture is perfect example of  Urban vintage

How to master the urban look

I have noticed especially in New York that the Urban style is the  most popular sought after look among bloggers, artists and fashion trendy folks,.

To pull this look off requires  certain patterns of fabric, a perticular hair style that defines the overlook and a certain type of cool and artsy  accessories, it’s no wonder this style can be tricky to pull off, Until now Darlin, because I have listed all the staple  pieces you’ll need to turn yourself into a total Urbanista.

The urban streetlook requires 3 key elements 

  • Hip hop clothing such as joggers rip jeans and boyfriend Jeans
  •  sporty chick top mix with chunky and modern jewelry
  •  To perfectly execute his look think of mixing sporty and modern than add your own spin to it.

See pics below for inspiration


For a unique urban look I recommend addedung  these  5 key items to your look.

Lets start with a cool hair style and hair accessories that represent your unique style



Being an urbanista is more than just about clothes and accessories it’s a lifestyle Darlin- urban ladies are highly into culture, art, and music. These fascinating women are also free spirited and and it’s shows not only in their style but also in their living environments. So therefore,it’s only fitting that an urban sister carries a signature bag. Whether you prefer a Clutch or hand bag Rest assure that this bag will represent her individual style and flavor to the T. Urban women are very perticular about their accessories -accessories will make or brake your look. So choose them wisely ladies.

Happy Birthday To Me!!


Hellooooo my fashionable friends welcome back to my blog. I hope you’ve been well.

So last week Thursday was my birthday, yippie!! I turned 30 for the umptif


For some reason Birthdays always make me emotional,  However, to be honest ever since I’ve turned  30 birthdays only reminds me of how much I have yet to still accomplish in my life.

Although I am thrilled to be celebrating another birthday I can’t say I’m thrilled about getting older.So I have decided I will be turning 30 for next 10 years.


Growing up I used to make a  big fuss over my birthdays, however, now I’d rather spend it at home with my family over an intimate dinner. This year my husband and kids prepared me a lovely dinner We had A HUGE CAKE the kids sang happy birthday and I love it.

So let’s talk about the Birthday outfit, shall we?

for starters, I had a class that day and yes Darling I wore my tiara to class.
I wore a white fitted lace dress and for a pop of color, I paired it with a fun yellow necklace since yellow represents new beginning and birthdays signifies new beginning to me. I also rocked a pair of (glass) clear heels.I guess you can say I was going for a modern Cinderella look. I felt like a princess all day!!

 Rule to Pajama Dressing

  1. for a casual stylish look chose a  colorful silk kimono-style robe. Belt it with a thin belt over a pair of ripped jeans, or wide leg pant to complete your look chose a pair of stylish heels, classy clutch or elegant bag- for a sophisticated and grown up vibe.
  2. I am obsessed with the matching pajama set look. If you’re going to nail this look its important that you have the right accessories -less is more when it come to jewelry and Your best bet would be to match your look with a pair of stilettos, or heels.
  3. Dos and don’t-do wear your pajama set with heels -don’t wear your pajama set with flip flop – to avoid looking like you’re going to a slumber party in the day time

As a fashion Icon Michele Obama’s legacy started nearly a decade ago, her beauty and style caught our attention from the moment she elegantly stepped out onto the presidential inaugural ball in 2009. She arrived poised with incredible style wearing a custom-made Jason Wu one-shoulder white gown, embellished with organza flowers and Swarovski crystal.The white gown she wore is now part of our nation’s history at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.


Right from the start, Michelle started to establish her public persona by using groundbreaking and powerful style to define her image. By simply being her poise and stylish self-Michelle has captivated the world and have become the most photographed first lady in American History.
