The Chic Jumpsuit – OOTD 6

@ashadah

Drop – Dead – Gorgeous is the right term for this lovely piece of fine cotton. This jumpsuit was from Dot Reeder boutique in Montclair, NJ; designer is Apiece Apart based out of New York.


Ladies, I did not need a bra for this one, and the silhouette hits all of the right places if you’re 5’9″ like me. In these photos I am wearing a size 8.

The sleeves are puffed and airy, the suit comes with a belt to tie beneath the asymmetrical neckline and POCKETS! Who doesn’t love pockets?

Face & Foot Tips:

Makeup for this outfit would be something very light in the red and peachy spectrum. Experiment with warm tones, brighten the cheeks, light lipstick or gloss, and shimmery shadows.

Footwear for this outfit will go great with silver, nude or a suede heel, sandal and if you’re bold….a silver sneaker!

Until Next Time, Ashadah Austin

Hat Attack – OOTD 5

Hat: HatAttack – Cane Ranger Toast – White Fabric Band Makeup: RMS Beauty


This is by far the first time I have fell in love with a straw hat. I used to have a lot of hair so I didn’t experiment too much with hats. It seems to be easier with a bald head (lol).

I kept the outfit on the bronze side of the spectrum and included some silver jewelry and a pop of light baby blue around the waist.

A bold red lip and simmer eye shadow looks extremely sophisticated against a deep summer tan.

-Until Next Time,

The Art of Layering – OOTD 2

Hat: August Hat Company
Scarf: Vintage
Tube Top: Express
Long Sleeve: Marshalls
Skirt: Calvin Klein Jeans

This is a style I am definitely not use to AT ALL….but I gave it a try and here is what I came up with.

How Did I Style?

  1. I layered a white tube top with a black long-sleeve shirt.
  2. High-waist skirts are a very chic touch to this look, however high-waist light blue jeans would have been perfect as well.
  3. I “stole” my mother’s vintage neck scarf that added a pop of color. (These are going to be a big trend coming soon, I can sense it!)
  4. A delightful hat to add on the chic factor (my bf really likes this hat)
  5. Pull the outfit all together with some big earrings !

To conclude, do not be afraid to explore style you really wouldn’t like at all! It may surprise you, plus you only live once right?

Quick Styling Tips:

  • When styling orange pants, pair it with white or black to make the pants stand out.
  • Don’t over power orange with pinks, purples and blues. (it will be way too bright and look like a unicorn threw up carrots and rainbows)
  • My favorite art teacher once told me that when coloring your picture, use the same color from the top of the picture as for the bottom so that the eyes can continue to look up and down. So, in styling orange, use little hints of it maybe for the eye shadow, hair, hat, or another accessory to balance the outfit.
  • A nice complementary color to do with orange is a dark blue or navy and red (but I suggest a small amount like the graphic on my tee)
