The timing of the universe is a funny thing. Sometimes you have a plan and then the plan falls entirely apart and then a better one comes together, a portal opens. My portal took me to the streets of Chicago, a place I was entirely unfamiliar with, but felt so familiar once I arrived.

Happy tenth birthday, Je M'appelle Chanel. I would've never imagined so many years ago that the blog would still be here and still hold such a special and dear place in my heart.

I'm obsessed with Gen Z. From their style to their march-to-a-beat-of-their-own-drum-kinda-attitude, there's something about this cohort that's special. I'm especially obsessed with their style. I love that they have found a way to balance comfort and uniqueness vis-à-vis different silhouettes that us millennials tend to stray away from.

Dressing like a Gen Z

Life seems to be moving fast again. Between bridal showers, birthdays, weddings, work events, etm. It feels like there's more of a reason to get dressed again. I've been feeling the urge to revamp my wardrobe too. An odd feeling considering its something I haven't thought critically about in a little over two years.

Wardrobe Musings

Life seems to be moving fast again. Between bridal showers, birthdays, weddings, work events, etm. It feels like there's more of a reason to get dressed again. I've been feeling the urge to revamp my wardrobe too. An odd feeling considering its something I haven't thought critically about in a little over two years.
During quarantine I got into Top Chef and my obsession with Padma Lakshmi reached a whole new level. Padma wore this jumpsuit during Top Chef All Stars and the moment I saw it I knew I needed it.  This is one of those pieces that was worth losing sleep over. Problem was I couldn't find it in my size. Until I DID. This was a big resale gods shining down on me moment.

This jumpsuit is so versatile. I've worn it with just about everything and everywhere. Plus the CPW (Cost per wear) is $8?!

This jumpsuit deserved a whole photoshoot and then some. 

Marigold and I are having a moment. Can you tell? Peep the marigold slip dress I dreamt about and then manifested.

Aries season is long gone. Taurus season is here. One of my favorite blogs said, "Keep it simple, keep it curious, go forward with heart." I couldn't agree more. Be well, beautiful people. 



Wearing: Frame - Le Flare de Francoise Jumpsuit in Marigold (exact, similar), shoes - Tory Burch (old, but similar), lips - Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
