Day 1: Day 1 of Fashion Week was pretty chill for me, it mostly consisted of planning looks and events for the week. I had a dope workout at Arlo Soho with Surfset thanks to the awesome people behind the Into App. I’ve never surfed before so that class was intense! I ran over to East Soho to stop by a showroom and return pulls … Continue reading NYFW Recap
Growing up, if my mom couldn’t afford something popular (aka expensive) she would show my sister & I how to style the things we could afford and still make it cute! Now that I’m older, I’m blessed to afford the things I couldn’t but because I’m a blogger, I’m usually over trends before I get a chance to try them. It doesn’t make sense for … Continue reading How to Shop on a Budget (& Still Look Expensive)
I am extremely pleased to announce the latest feature on Alexis the G called #MeetTheG where we highlight a Girl boss who is breaking the glass ceiling and inspiring other women! This week we interviewed Braxton, a young Entrepreneur from Richmond, heading into her first year at Clark Atlanta University! Let’s meet the G… Who is Braxton? Wow, how do I answer this without writing a book? Let’s … Continue reading #MEETTHEG : Braxton
Here is the final look of my three part street wear series! This was shot a couple of weeks ago, when it was actually fall weather in New York, it seems like we skipped the entire season & I couldn’t be more sad about it :/ One of my favorite fall pieces is definitely long-sleeve turtle necks. They go with everything, and you can dress them … Continue reading You Should Be Here: Part iii
As promised, here is part two of this street style series (check out part one here), styled by Chris Pearson, and shot by Anthony Prince! This yellow turtle neck top, gray t-shirt and jeans are all Acne and each piece was great quality. The shirts were super comfortable and the jeans fit beautifully. If you’re looking to invest in a pair of jeans that will … Continue reading You Should Be Here: Part ii
I started this blog two years ago as a way to express my creativity in a college town where inspiration was lacking, and the fashion industry is non-existent. At first, it was a mashup of things I was interested in including makeup, dorm decor and the occasional Youtube video. Over the years my dedication to the blog fluctuated, but it was always something I wished I could … Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday!!
After about an hour scouring the mall from front to back, still nothing. DSW, Forever 21, Macy’s nor Aldo’s held the right floral heels I envisioned in my head. Heels that would go perfectly with the ensemble I bought earlier that day for one of the most important campus events I would attend my Junior year. I was officially reaching panic mode! I could only … Continue reading Find
My favorite thing to do every Fourth of July is go to the beach. I get to tan, spend time with friends and family and end the day with fireworks. It’s perfect 🙂 If you do plan on being by the water this holiday but aren’t super comfortable with your body, I would recommend a bathing suit like this. With its simple shape, and classic … Continue reading Happy Fourth of July!
I love a beautiful pair of heels, and if I were shorter I’d probably wear them everyday, but lord knows I get enough stares on the subway standing at 5’10 lol. But there’s nothing like a pair of comfy kicks that go with everything. I really wanted a pair of all white sneakers but I didn’t want to go for Huaraches or Roshes, knowing a … Continue reading Kickin’ It Old School
I hope you all liked the first post of this two part series on styling skirts! Here is post numero dos, featuring this gorgeous chartreuse, suede skirt my mom handed down to me from her younger years! The A-line fit is perfect if you’re not so curvy like myself, it cinches in at the waist giving more of an hourglass illusion. This skirt was sitting in … Continue reading Skirts And The City: Part ii
