Undiscovered Love


, , , , ,

As women we have many things that we obsess over. Shoes, handbags, sales, that “to-die-for” mini skirt and everything in between. For the longest I thought that my only obsession was high-heeled shoes, that was…until last week.

I was out with a good friend for lunch and she complimented me on a vintage coat I was wearing. She said “I swear you’re wearing a different coat every time that I see you! That must be your thing right…coats?! You must have lots of them at home!” After a few seconds of pondering I replied “You know what, I think you’re right!”

Later that night when I returned home, I took off my coat and opened my closet to hang it up, and what I saw next astonished me. Half of my closet was filled with coats! From vest to blazers, jackets to sweaters, and a few heavy coats and vintage finds. It was a surprise to me that I never took the time to analyze my closet to see how many coats I had collected throughout the years. The fact that it was consuming half of my closet space made me feel even more blind for not noticing! Lol I felt like I had been having a “Hey Arnold” moment for years and never knew it (putting on the same type of thing everyday because there’s so many in my closet, but never realizing that I’m wearing the same pattern of things all of the time).

I even made a collage after I realized how many post I had done wearing my favorite jackets! lol

I think back to the mornings when I’m trying to decide what to wear. Regardless of the type of clothing I put on, I never really felt that my outfit was complete until I put some type of outerwear on top of it. Whether it’s an oversize sweater, leather jacket or vintage coat, I feel like it completes my look.

For today’s look I decided to add one of my new vintage coats. I scored it at one of my favorite vintage/antique shops in North Carolina, “Father & Son Antiques”. If you live in Triad area make sure to check them out! :)

Flashback Friday!

Hey Lovies!

In honor of #FlashbackFriday, I thought it would be great to share a fun Chrissy Joy Style video made by my good friend and videographer, Leomary Rodriguez! :) It was originally made to go along with my 1 Year Anniversary post back in November, but for various reasons ended up becoming a lost file that never made it to the blog! :( But no worries, everything happens for a reason. I believe its the perfect flashback video to take you into weekend! :)

NYFW Style Diary: Part 2


, , , , , , ,

Hey lovies!

So far you’ve seen two of the four looks from my New York Fashion Week Style Diary. Now let’s get into the remaining looks along with their inspiration! :)

Day 4: #TeamCookie

I drew a little inspiration from one of my favorite television shows for Day 4 of Fashion Week. I have been obsessed with the show “Empire” after my sister convinced me to watch the show after the second episode. Since then I have been all about “Cookie”, which is one of the shows main characters. Her personality is crazy and hilarious, and her style is all about furs, body-con dresses, and lots of leopard. Although I don’t have fur coats and body con dresses, I pulled out my old faux fur vest, and midi faux leather pencil skirt to bring my version of “Cookie” to Lincoln Center. ;)

Finale of Faith 

Day 6 was my final day of Fashion Week. What better way to finish off my Fashion Week experience than to display my faith for all to see! I pulled out my favorite “Faith my favorite F-word” tee from my closet, and paired it with my faux leather skirt and thigh-high socks for a comfy, downtown look. I believe it’s always best to make a statement before you make an exit :)

NYFW Style Diary : Part 1


, , , , , , ,

Hey Lovies!

We have been reviewing a few of the shows that I attended during New York Fashion Week for the past couple of days, but now it’s time to get the best part, my Style Diary!

I honestly was not very inspired when it came to choosing what to wear for Fashion Week, because the weather was freezing the entire time. When I am very cold I get into a mood which makes it hard for me to do or think about anything, other than snuggling up in a huge blanket and sleeping. Fortunately, I was able to push past that mood and put together a few looks for the 4 days of Fashion Week that I participated. So let’s get into each look along with its inspiration! :)

Layered Love

On day two of Fashion Week (which was my first day of joining the festivities) it was very cold and windy. I had originally planned to wear a simple look with a statement jacket and necklace, but that idea quickly changed when I checked the weather on my phone that morning. I added two extra layers to my look along with faux leather leggings (that were super warm!) and booties. Some may say that the weather inspired my sudden change of wardrobe from simple to layered love!

4 Shades of Grey

On day three, I decided that wanted to try a monochromatic look. I have been wanting to try the style out for awhile, but in a color other than black, so I went with grey. This happened to be the same day that “50 shades of Grey” premiered in the movie theaters, so my outfit went perfect for the occasion! Lol One of the trends that I spotted on the runway for Fall were all-grey looks, so it feels good to know that I am ahead of the trend :)
