Mid-Week Inspo-White in Fall

I love this idea! More because I finally found a pair of white jeans that fit me to a T that I’ve yet to wear all summer long out of fear that I will get dirty! As I trolled through my closet unmoved by my pieces I fingered over my summer items still adorned with tags realizing fall is upon us and will slowly creep in leaving no time to wear that crop top I brought, or the white jeans due to the fact that I have been trained that “you don’t wear white after labor day” I mean really where does this stuff come from! The rules of fashion!

V&V Monday Vogueffirmations- What’s the Rush?!

Today I was reminded, as I zipped through a thick flow of traffic that for about 4 months now had been non-existent due to the school closer of how easily stress can rush into your head before your day has started or before you’ve even taken your first cup of coffee!

Doll’s daycare is closed for the whole week, and because I am a planner and a bit OCD (yes I can admit this) I set my alarm clock a bit later than usual as it was only me that needed to be prepared and out the house, pulled out the clothes and intended to be to work 30 minutes before my usual time! But O’no, as I pulled out of my neighborhood onto the main throughway I was stunned at the semi thick traffic that littered the road at 6:20 am! I felt my blood instantly boil as I saw my plans of driving in stress free and getting to work early slip away behind a minivan that continued to break with the next car 3 cars ahead of him!
As I blew my horn and attempted to look for a escape lane to get back my lost 5 minutes I just stopped, took my Bluetooth out my ear, turned the radio up and realized for the first morning, in a while it’s just me in the car. Me with my thoughts, no need to chit chat with anyone, no toddler asking for “book mommy” it was just me!

Monday Vogueffirmation: I love that new wife smile

It's been officially 2 weeks of me being a wife and newlywed. All new words that seem foreign yet feel so natural coming out of my mouth. 

Family and friends keep asking "does it feel different" and I must admit although we are not new to our relationship, this new chapter feels a bit refreshing and new and I am enjoying the new wife shine!

New chapters are always exciting, scary and makes most anxious. This is my reason for being MIA on the blog lately. I will be returning back to normal posting over the next few weeks as I adjust back into reality! 

The blog will be once again under going a face change and maybe even a name change as i want to focus more more things outside of the word of fashion! So look out for that and remember to stay grounded and inspired this week!  
Stay Chic! Don't forget to stop by the new addition to the fashion family, come and see Precious Couture the fashion kids versions of V&V were the mini's get to be as fashionable as the adults.

V&V Radar: Forever Young

In my heart of hearts I am such a big kid! I love to dress up and because I have a little person who adores it as well I find any excuse to dress up and play with her! Any reason to put on glitter, feathers and tulle and I will take it!

V&V Decorum- Shimmer Baby Shimmer!

While i am swamped with all things wedding i figured I would give myself a mental break and troll Pinterest an just like a month to a flam all thing shiny I am automatically draw too! 
I think in my former life I was a magpie! lol so I figured while not talk shimmer in the home.

I am infmuse for having a mirror, or two, or three in one room! This habit was adopted from living in NYC in small spaces and remembering that adding mirrors opens a space and makes it look bigger then what it is! The illusion of metal reflection, some were along the way my lust for metal and reflective objected poured off the walls and into my living space. 

It was refreshing to see that i am not the only one that think metal of all kind reflective or other should be placed at least once through the room. That added sparkle add a soft touch of feminine without being so literal! 

Do you have some form of "sparkle" in your home and if so is it just mirror or something more interesting?!

V&V Get's Real: How to not get “scouted” by companies like InterFACE

Image from pinterest search 
After having a somewhat hectic weekend filled with wedding stuff and a “semi scam” I had to let me thoughts marinate before sitting down to write this post.

I’ve worked in the fashion industry from a designer perspective and have modeled as a kid- teen year and still, even a somewhat knowledgeable mother got duped! With that being said I figured if someone with “somewhat” knowledge on kids modeling, fashion and the daily scams, due to many nights and days spent watching everything Trya Banks talked about in regards to “modeling scamming” I too was “semi swindled”. So I decided if this could happen to me then the average Joe can be hoodwinked as well, this in a sense is my “PSA” to all the parent readers who live in the DMV area.

Disclosure: The below is my own experience and my own opinion of InterFACE. I am choosing to share this on my own platform so that all my chic parents in the DMV Area are aware and do not ever have to experience what I endured! This is not a normal blog entry, it’s not glittery and dripping in pretty picture, it’s laced with a real life experience and if you make it to the end hopefully you too will not fall victim!

Mommy Corner: I’m no Super Women, I’m just a mom

As the days quickly turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months, I sometimes have to just stop, take a breath and enjoy life.
With the wedding being one month and 22 days away (yes I have a counter) I find myself every single day being submerged in all things wedding!  As June rolled in I made myself A promise, that upon arriving home I will not get on the computer until the mini is down and asleep.
I find that this gives me time to just be with the family without having a glowing screen with something wedding related in my face and I’m glad I started doing this because I also noticed that the mini was feeling left out with mommy and daddy being so preoccupied.
At night I like to always do what I call “mommy time” with Doll. It’s a time to just “calm down cool down”, let the body relax and it give her a chance to cuddle with me and tell me about her day in her own little language.
