Most will call 1/20/2021 Inauguration Day, but it will forever be known to me as the day the Trench Coats came to slay! From our new First Lady Jill Biden, our first Female Vice President Kamala Harris, our former First Lady Michelle Obama, American Poet Amanda Gorman, to Jennifer Lopez and all the ladies of the Biden family. These ladies showed up in a sea of stylish and colorful trench coats! And I’m here for it!!! They did not come to play with us!!!
The Bidens Blue us away ! Yes, you read it correctly. Our New First Lady Jill Biden made us all stop and marvel at her in her ocean blue tweed trench coat by Alexandra O’Neill. While our President looked equally dapper in his navy blue trench coat by Ralph Lauren. If that wasn’t enough the entire Biden Family took their first walk to the White House as if they were working the runway! I saw light blue, navy blue, burgundy, pink and plaid. They were all making a unified fashion statement and I wasn’t mad.
Our first female Vice President Kamala Harris stepped out bold and beautiful in her purple trench coat by Christopher John Rogers. Always the conservative beauty, she showed up making a true fashion statement as she took her historic place in office. I’m sure this will not be the last we will see of her fashionable statement pieces.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama showed up in her burgundy / wine colored cashmere trench coat by Sergio Hudson looking like American Royalty demanding attention and getting it.
American Poet Amanda Gorman was a ray of sunshine as she spoke so vivid and eloquently in her yellow trench coat by Prada. This beautiful young lady made us stop and listen as she spoke. Her epic poem was thought-provoking and every word she spoke was powerful. Today not only did she make a memorable political statement, but she also made a fashion statement that will not go unnoticed.
Last but not least Jennifer Lopez showed up like the true show stopper she is in all white everything. She sang ”America The Beautiful” while looking beautiful in her white trench coat by Chanel. Jenny from the block also put her stamp on things while singing ”This Land is Your Land” she said in Spanish “Una nación, Bajo Dios, indivisible, con Libertad y Justicia para todos,” (One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all). We might not have understood what she said, but we sure did take notice of her style.
I could go on and on about how fashionable and dapper everyone looked today, but I’ll stop and leave you with this fashion gem. Trench Coats have always been a fashion staple that has never and will never go out of style. It is one of the best items you could & should have in your wardrobe whether you’re a her or him.

Camouflage once wore to blend in when at battle or hunting is now being worn like denim, with any and everything. Camouflage is another statement piece that can fashionably be paired with anything.
Camouflage hats, pants, shirts, shorts, jumpsuits, shoes, boots, and sneakers are showing up in fashion everywhere pushing the fashion limit to the next level.
Although camouflage has been around for years it is now taking the fashion industry by storm. It can be worn in so many ways, now you can dress it up or dress it down. However, you wear it just know that you are going to stand out and never blend in.
Get yourself some camouflage and fashionably stand out!

The outlaw accessory that everyone should have tucked away in their closet is the leather jacket. Leather jackets have been know to put an uniquely edgy yet stylish stamp of approval on any outfit.
Back in the day the bad boys , bad girls, bikers and rockers wore leather jackets like a badge of rebellion. The shock tactic of the leather jacket worked , because no one could walk by a rebellious soul and not notice such a cool jacket! My earliest memory of a leather jacket was Fonzie off of the show “Happy Days”. Fonzie would show up and stop the show! I remember thinking wow he’s cool!
Years later my mind was blown when I saw Madonna rock a leather jacket with a tutu !!! That did it for me and from that moment I promised myself I would one day own a leather jacket. Fast forward many years, I’m now the owner of many colorful leather jackets.
You can pair a leather jacket with any outfit and change the entire look. Or you can make the jacket the center piece of the entire ensemble. Be it a dress, cargo pants, jeans, khakis or shorts a leather jacket can jazz your look all the way up!!!
If you don’t own a leather jacket get you one. Because the leather jacket is the edgy quintessential piece that completes any wardrobe!
Scarves are said to be a broad band of cloth worn about the shoulders, around the neck, or over the head. This definition doesn’t come close to describing such a magnificent accessory. Scarves can also be wore around your waist as a sash or belt, as a turban around your head or even around your favorite hat to add an extra fashionable touch.
Available in various colors and patterns adding scarves to your wardrobe can add limitless style possibilities. If you haven’t tried a scarf before you have not lived. Do your wardrobe a favor and wrap it up with a stylish scarf! The innovative cloth that can fashionably alter your attire.

When we think of fashion we normally think of clothing, handbags, accessories and shoes. Rarely do we think of hair as the major accessory that can complete our look.
The right hairstyle can truly take your look to the next level of fashion. Be it shorty & sassy, long & classy, black, blonde, braids of a fade. Hairstyles are how complete looks are made.
If you’re a style chameleon like me, I assure you that you will love how the hair switch-up will amplify your entire look & style.
Some of the best fashion items come from something old being revamped into something new.
So never throw anything away, keep it revamp it and make it sassy!!! This was an old faux leather, pleather, fake leather ( whatever you want to call it )jacket I had that was on it’s last leg, so I revived and revamped it into this loud piece of Shy Stilletto sexy!
This jacket screams art & expression. Revamping gives you the ability to make your own bold statement. Be it a jacket, shirt or skirt you can revamp it into a one of a kind signature statement piece.
I can’t wait to rock it out!!!
Be it a baseball cap, beanie, beret, bucket, cowboy, fedora or flat cap hats have a personality of their own. No matter what you pair a hat with it will surely make a bold statement. A hat can illuminate any outfit, but you have to be brave to uniquely execute the fashion plan.
Many fear hats because of their boldness, I say purchase a hat and rock it out and make it a “Say Something Hat Day” . Let go of any fear and push your fissionability to the next level.
Hats, the signature statement piece that can stylishly change any outfit.
Get you one and have a “Say Something Hat Day”!
