What colors stand the test of time? Let’s investigate what colors last in fashion.
Thanks for joining us for the second part of our The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior installment. This post included several color mentions, a bold statement to declare in something not as fleeting as a TikTok video! So I decided to dive deeper, fashionista! In the dictionary for ‘B’, today I am reviewing Dior’s mention of colors, “black” & “blue” in reference to the fashion world.
Fashion from A-Z: Our thoughts on Christian Dior’s The Little Dictionary of Fashion, Part 1!
Originally published in 1954, we are exploring Christian Dior’s The Little Dictionary of Fashion. This A-Z fashion guide is just what this season calls for. This dictionary includes several words for each letter packed with style secrets and tips. Of course this series won’t include every word, but I will be sharing what stands out most, and what is relevant to you, fashionistas, throughout this series, plus daily updates on our Instagram stories. Get ready to be style inspired, enjoy Dior quoteables, and gain insight regarding fashion rules’ relevancy today!
For some style inspiration, I’m happy to share with you this shoot from the lovely @bridalandbraids & @amylimaphotos 🤗
This look is boho inspired with a denim influence, infused with elements of pale pink. It started with the pink top and adding other layers to that. The “messy” bun enhances the style and complements the feel of “effortlessly boho chic”, thanks to Ryann’s uber talented hair styling and vision. (Spoiler alert: “messy buns” are not so easy!)
This look of a more structured jean on jeans + sheer flowy pink dress + pink chunky boots is a fun way to show how to incorporate different kinds of material into one look, mixing structure with a feminine feel. Hopefully this gives you some style inspiration. What other pieces do you like mixing together?

have you ever thought about what motivates your soul? why do we get up in the morning? what keeps us up at night?
sleep is something i can never seem to snag enough of. but such is so much about life. time with friends, time to dream, (sleeping or awake), time to explore the unknown. God gives us so many moments and we can decide how to use them. *scrolls facebook sheepishly* so many tutorials, so little time! lolz! <tangent-my recent fave was Lucie Fink’s interview with Anna Akana, if you are in need of some creative vlogging inspo>
here is one thing I am working on currently. how to continue stepping into moments while trusting God at the same time. here is what i mean by that. i used to separate good/bad events from sharing my feelings with God. well, it was easier during the ‘good’ feelings to stay connected. such as positivity, happiness, thankfulness, joy, delight. but i would create so much distance between me and God when I felt negative or ‘wrong’ feelings, such as disconnect, melancholy, anger, stuck, depression. and then some feelings i get stuck altogether in limbo, anxiety, frustration, it’s something i even do with people, I have learned. the question i have been asking myself is, am i willing to feel what I’m feeling w h i l e staying connected to the holy spirit at the same time, and at the same time, God. what happens when i connect instead of distance those two? and dipping my boot into that is delightful and splashy like an ocean’s first kiss. salty, refreshing, restoring and real. it makes you wonder why you would stay dry on the sand in the first place.
i also worry no one will understand me. we are created to know and be known. of course Satan would want to create that divide and fake fear. when I express that, God has given me lots of confirmation through people that i am understandable. or people ask great clarifying questions and are patience to talk through something with me. the willingness to learn is as important as automatically being understood, different hues delight the soul.
has this every happened to you? i’d love to hear about it. until next time, thanks for stopping by, fashionistas!

Recently, I had the privilege of working with some talented artists on a photo collab.
We paired a subtle glittery French Connection strapless dress with a flowly Parisian silk skirt + almost black Rampage combat boots. To add texture and variety, we added layers with a dark purple velvet J Crew jacket and jean jacket.
The dress can be worn simply or in combination with other pieces. I love starting with a simple yet stylish piece, and adding other colors and textures in you wouldn’t necessarily expect. Intentional eclection.
For the hair and makeup, Ryann curated a thoughtfully fun meets glamour bold look for going out, a fashion event or just plain #babealert. IF ONLY every day could start off this way! I lament. I’m always impressed with her thoughtfulness and creativity. Amy, our amazing photographer, worked with our vision and we created both stylishly urban looks. You will see Amy used natural light and city backgrounds to create the look we were going for. They are both divine to work with and I definitely recommend you check out their work, “Immediately, if not sooner,” – Stanford Blatch, SATC.
A few things I adore for shoots are natural light, inspired vibes and minimal editing. In this case, inspired vibes means the energy your team feeds off from each other. I spent wayyy too much time agonizing over which photo to use, but what else is new, but finally fell into the perfect group for this post. Anyone else over hyper obsess over their flaws until you freeze from moving forward? Gulp. Guilty! I would like to invite you and myself to embrace the unique things that make you, y o u.
