Hey Lovies!

“Night On the Town”, this was the inspiration behind the second look featured in my latest YouTube style video (refer to last post for video). I knew that I wanted to create a fun “night-out” outfit based around this fun vintage blazer that I own. To do so, I paired the blazer with my custom-made high-waisted skirt from CaDeola Designs and pointed-toe pumps. I added a fun twist to the look by adding in a pair of burgundy knee-high socks into the mix. Totally in love with this look!

Let’s take on the night! :)

New Beginnings

New York City. The place where dreams are born and limits are pushed to the max. A city that’s full of dreamers and go-getters. If you keep your eyes on the prize and don’t give up, you have a shot at making it. Because let’s face it, if you can make it here you can make it anywhere.

This was the thought process I had of New York City before I moved here two and a half years ago. Since that move, I have seen first hand how much this city can push you, but also how it can reward you. I’ve learned to work hard and fight to accomplish the goals that I have in life. I also realized that sleep is a privilege that not all are given. You must surround yourself with positive, uplifting people who have the same work ethic as you. To ensure that you are challenging yourself to be better person than you were yesterday, you must continue to grow and evolve.

Today’s post was curated for this very reason. As ChrissyJoyStyle.com continues to grow and evolve, I have decided to take the blog to a new level by starting a Youtube Channel! :) This channel will consist of Style Videos, LookBooks & other fun life events that I decide to share. The Channel will make it’s debut on Monday, November 24th!! Make sure to follow and stay tuned in to Instagram, Twitter & Facebook to see when it goes live!

In the meantime, today’s look is one of the looks that will be featured on the 1st style video. It was inspired by my never-ending love for sequins and leather. I love mixing the two together just as much as I love wearing them independently. I swear if I had a closet with only leather, sequins (and fur) as my only options of clothing, I would be one happy camper! :)

Downtown Girl

Brooklyn is not only where I call home, it is the city where I find the most inspiration. From Fort Greene and Clinton Hill to Park Slope and Greenpoint, the environment is chill and laid back. The style is seen in an artistic view rather than a statement of labels.

Granted, my neighborhood would be classified as “Spanish Brooklyn”, and known more for family fun, and sidewalk Singing/Spanish dance sessions. However, I like to explore the more artistic areas of Brooklyn whenever possible, because it’s definitely refreshing and more of my scene.

My definition of Brooklyn style is “downtown chic”.

Simple, relaxed, effortless, yet it makes a statement in its own way. Everyone seems to have that “I just woke up and threw on this layered to perfection look with combat boots and a brim hat…but I’m just chilling”. It’s often accompanied with tattoos, piercings or just a cool pair of vintage shades.

A good friend and I recently went to the Brooklyn Park to catch up. The area was so relaxing and beautiful. It overlooked the Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridge, had an enclosed carousel, and even a small house made out of beautiful stained glass.

After exploring the nearby neighborhood, I knew that I had to do a shoot for the blog in this area…I was so in love! It didn’t take a lot of thought to figure out what I would wear when that day finally arrived. When in Rome do as the Romans…or better yet, when in Brooklyn make your own downtown chic look! ;)
