Super simple look. Threw this dress on to go shoot a project with a group of Miami fashion bloggers this week. If you follow me on instagram (@riamichelle) then you’ve seen the behind the scenes shots. Can’t wait to share the shoot with you. After the shoot I met up with my intern and handed her my camera and threw her into the role of photographer. I think she got the hang of things pretty quickly. This was her first time using an DSLR, how do you think she did?
Look at me – I’m a big girl now, said I’m gon’ do something
Told the world I would paint this town
But now bitches I run this
I can be bad if I want
I can say what I want
I can live fast if I want
You really wanna know how I got it like that
‘Cause I got a cute face
And my booty so fat
I’m totally obsessed with this song. I just flip my weave and dance my face off. All I need is a wind machine. Anyway, I swapped my flats for these Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony inspired heels and the beanie. The beanie is definitely not weather appropriate but I DO WHAT I WANT. It all fit that bratty 90s vibe I felt that day. Yeah I’m totally still stuck in the 90s most days.

Phew! I’ve shot this dress THREE times. So here’s the scoop, I picked up and went to New York for a few months and Sway Chic sent me this lovely dress but I had already departed for NYC. As soon as I got back from NYC, I had to leave for Novi, Michigan so I wore the dress to the airport and shot it as soon as we got to the hotel. Somehow there was a memory card mishap and the photos are lost forever. I don’t realize this however until I go to shoot the dress again, when looking at the test shot I have a sense of deja vu…oh yeah I shot this in MI. There were a lot of feelings about how this could happen…when really who cares…so the shoot got nixed. Flash forward to this weekend and I was DETERMINED to shoot this dress, I mean it’s so cute.
We shot this in my condo’s courtyard, nothing fancy. The print of this dress is so fun and I’m a big fan of the skater silhouette. They are generally so comfy, that’s why I was able to wear this exact outfit to the airport (minus the jewelry). This dress is no exception, the fabric is light and there’s adjustable corsetting on the sides. What does that spell, a great summer dress. My fabulous green necklace from Theorem Jewelry goes with everything, it’s the perfect shade of green. I love that I can wear it whether I’m doing gold or silver accessories as well. I’ve also been meaning to shoot it as well. Theorem is designed by Jessica of Label Me. Another designer I’d like to share with you guys is Tevin Vincent who makes my absolute favorite necklace (nsfw?).
So definitely check out Sway Chic (along with Theorem & Tevin), they have a super cute collection of pieces to choose from at amazing prices.

I think this was my last full day in New York before leaving for Florida. My friend and I slept in, allegedly I took a long time to get ready and we missed brunch. ALLEGEDLY. So we ended up at Bareburger in Park Slope which was amazingly delicious. Like pure organic all-natural decadence. I haven’t had a burger since, I don’t know that it will meet the bar that has been set so high now. They make their own lemonade too which you can see me sucking back above.
After “brunch” we walked to the park and took a bunch of pictures there, a little toddler almost ran off with my friends shoes haha, I climbed a forklift thing and took pictures on it in full view of the construction workers it belonged too, almost got ran over by some overzealous cyclists, climbed on a vehicle and took pictures on that, and last but not least never found what we were looking for in the park. I’d had enough since I totally wasn’t dressed for the park and stomping around trails in these heels was getting to be a lot. Lol at not ending up using a single photo from the park.

Had to shoot in one of my favorite ares in New York City of course. I met up with my girl Yanique for lunch nearby at The Mermaid Inn which has the “Happiest of Happy Hours”. I received this lattice top from Gypsy Warrior and I can’t wait to wear it with cutoff shorts this summer. I didn’t pack any shorts with me this trip to NYC but it worked well with this skirt I think. I love the cutouts at the midriff and at the shoulders. I have another smokin’ hot dress from Gypsy Warrior to share with you guys. I’ve already worn it out an about in the city.
Can’t get enough of these Wang boots, as with all my other Wang shoes. They’re perfect. Give me more. Give me all the Alexander Wang in fact. Loving that my friends associate me with the brand. Definitely eying a couple new things now that I’m in Florida for a bit. Can’t shop when I’m living in New York need all the moniesss to live. I’ll never understand how people tolerate living in closets for way more than I pay to live in a 2 bedroom condo near the beach. BYE. Even with that I’ll definitely be back in New York sooner than later.
Bonus: Peep our Mermaid Inn feast!

The weather, the weather! Oooh the struggle for constant nice weather in New York. So the first day it got warm, best believe I rocked the only pair of shorts I had packed with me and this open knit sweater Spiegel sent over. With such a beautiful day presented to us, we went to The High Line to shoot these shots. After this day it of course got cold again, but lately it’s been even nicer and more often too.
How do you guys like my new Jagger Edge phone case? So cool right, I get so many compliments on it and it’s so handy for keeping a strong hold of my phone. I first wrote about JE on my blog back in 2011 when I was looking for an iPad case. Crazy!
My first time wearing these ankle breakers went really well. Such a great heel that makes my legs look absolutely killer. I can definitely get away with wearing these out and about in Florida but no way in New York. Definitely need to invest in more flats for New York.
