Currently in our society, we are facing a new era. Strong, fearless women are taking a stand and making their presence known. Both women and men must stick together to spread positivity and strength. There are a few negative people that have told me that fashion blogging is egotistical and that the industry is vain (side eye). I tell you this, blogging gives me the unique opportunity to represent incredible designers, who are using fashion to raise their voice. Also, I get to use my platform to uplift other women and make them feel confident. And that, my friends, is the whole reason I blog. Not for myself, but to reach and connect with others.
Thankfully, I have been so fortunate in my newest collab with Teyxo. Our goals of empowering women align perfectly! Originally, this was to be one of my New York Fashion Week looks, but due to it getting caught up in customs, I never got a chance to wear it. Now, I believe that mix up was meant to be. After watching the news on the trial this week, I think it is more important than ever to lift up other women. Especially, when you find a brand as kind and as energetic about making women feel strong, beautiful, and offering a fresh new way of expressing themselves!
This Teyxo hot pink dress has well constructed architectural pleating and pushes the boundaries with its asymmetry. Personally, I adore the juxtaposition of the clean, professional, buttoned neckline vs the soft feel of the peek-a-boo sleeve. It gives me the same determined feeling as a good power suit without losing its femininity.
Similar to what is currently on the runway, which you can read about in my S/S 2018 NYFW Recap, I chose to dabble with bold statement colors. To compliment the hot pink dress, I accessorized with a fierce pair of Call It Spring Hailassi lavender boots. This stretchy boot has been seen all over the runway, and are a more affordable option to the Balenciaga’s.
I’m so grateful that I am able to lift up artists who inspire me. Additionally for this collaboration, I got to work with one of my favorite female redhead photographers, SheSoPhoto. I’m telling you, she has an incredible eye and always uses her photographic art to portray the strength of women!
No matter where you live, no matter your politics, no matter your age, let’s come together ladies. Now is the time to take a stand and make a change! What women inspire you? Let me know on Instagram!
