LBS Chic: #UnwrapSomethingShady With Sunglass Hut


When the folks at Sunglass Hut hit me up and asked if they could send me a pair of Ray-Ban aviators as part of their #UnwrapSomethingShady campaign, I looked at my inbox and said “Hell yeah! Whutchu mean?” *inserts shmoney dance*

I basically have had Ray-Ban aviators on my Christmas wishlist for about fifty-leven years. They are so perfect and classic and FRESH. So when I unwrapped these bad boys, I immediately slapped on some lipstick, a fly outfit and stepped out the house like a BOSS. Here’s proof:


My threads were provided by Missguided’s new Plus Collection. I’m pretty picky about the plus size clothing brands I rock with, and Missguided has just been added to my faves list. I’ve always admired their super cute and trendy straight size collection so I’m really excited that they’ve decided to add plus pieces to their lineup.

Shades are a really great holiday gift option. Good quality shades will last you a while and if you get a shape that works with your face shape, they’re an instant upgrade.


I once interviewed songstress Chrisette Michele about her fashion tips and she told me a great pair of shades and some lipstick can take you from 0 to 100 real quick (not in those words obvi) and she wasn’t lying.


I added a little party around my neckline with this statement necklace from Bauble Bar. Pulls everything together really well.

So for those of you still on the Chrismas wishlist hunt – definitely consider a great pair of shades from Sunglass Hut for that person on your list that you haven’t quite figured out yet. They do not disappoint! And they are an instant upgrade to anyone’s look.

LBS Chic: Coat Check


This fall season I’m seriously mad for plaid. I titled this post Coat Check because it seems like so many retailers this season are offering dope coats, jackets and ponchos in these bold check patterns that really make a statement.

I found this one at ASOS.com and I guess it was so popular, it’s already sold out! But never fear, I have ten other chic options for you to choose from to get a similar look:

Savonne posted about the importance of a great coat in this Best Coats for Winter post already, so I don’t have to reemphasize that an awesome winter coat is KEY.


It’s often the only thing people see you in whether you’re cruising the subway or walking the city streets. And it’s the first thing people see when you walk through the door! You should have different ones for different occasions but if you can only have one – get one that you LOVE.

What I really liked about this Throw On Coat from ASOS is it’s ease. It was perfect for in-between fall/winter weather because you literally just throw it on – no buttons and no zips. I’ve been layering it with my infinity scarf and long-sleeved turtlenecks underneath.


It also works really well dressed up for evening events with a dress and heels or dressed down with acid-wash jeans like this particular look.
