On Marriage

“MARRIAGE HAS THE POWER TO SET THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE AS A WHOLE. IF YOUR MARRIAGE IS STRONG, EVEN IF ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN YOUR LIFE AROUND YOU ARE FILLED WITH TROUBLE AND WEAKNESS, IT WON’T MATTER. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE OUT INTO THE WORLD IN STRENGTH.” -TIMOTHY KELLER, THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE You may be wondering how and why this post pertains to the MillennialFashionista platform. And, if you are asking this, I don’t blame you—the question is legitimate. So, here it is… Being a “MillennialFashionista” transcends every area of life, including our relationships. Although this is a […]

The Danger of #GOALS?

“A GOAL SHOULD SCARE YOU A LITTLE AND EXCITE YOU A LOT.” -JOE VITALE #GOALS. It’s a mainstream hashtag we’ve all seen. Maybe we’ve even used it, after seeing a product we like or someone we admire (whether it be their physical attractiveness, their relationship, their home decor, etc.). Then comes the hashtag… Sure, you can admire others and be happy for them, and even gather inspiration from their lifestyle or accomplishments, but this #GOALS fad is not only extremely superficial, it does nothing to help you grow personally. Instead of focusing on the end result of another, focus on […]

People Will Talk; Don’t Be A Victim

“STOP LETTING PEOPLE WHO DO SO LITTLE FOR YOU CONTROL SO MUCH OF YOUR MIND, FEELINGS, AND EMOTIONS.” -WILL SMITH People will be people. People will talk, gossip, and criticize. Regardless of what you do, or how you do it, or when you do it, you will not satisfy everyone. Our minds hold great power—believe you are strong; believe you will accomplish your goals. You were put on this earth, endowed with certain qualities and traits, to accomplish a specific mission. Time is finite, and your life is so very precious. What value can you bring to the world? What […]

Propelled By Stress

“IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT’S DONE.” -NELSON MENDELA It’s Saturday afternoon and I am sitting in the Barnes & Noble Café with Parker, studying. I remember being in the exact same place last year—barely through my first semester of law school. There was so much uncertainty, so much fear. Studying for hours on end, thinking all my effort was never enough… Now, here I am. I made it through my first year of law school—a different feeling this time around. I made it. What seemed like impossibility turned into victory. We have all had these moments—gut-wrenching, stress-inducing fears of […]

Investing In Yourself

“IF YOU WANT TO INVEST IN SOMETHING WITH MINIMUM RISK AND A GUARANTEED BIG RETURN, INVEST IN YOURSELF.” -UNKNOWN This topic has been coming up a lot lately—and is something that is near and dear to my heart. Investing in yourself can be anything from purchasing that one pair of shoes to loading up on books at your local bookstore to a monthly gym membership. The surest return, where you are guaranteed a 100% (or more) return on what you invest, is when you invest in yourself. It bugs me so much when I hear people say, “I don’t eat […]

TOP 10 Vital Staples All Fashionistas Should Consider

This past weekend, I went on an expedition through my closet—and made a discovery… I have virtually run out of space and need to re-evaluate my wardrobe. No matter what happens, however, my staples will remain. Small spaces work best when optimized! So here goes… Sharp blazer—Can be paired with a t-shirt and jeans. Then—with the addition of some pumps—what was once dull and boring, has instantly transformed into an extremely sharp/sexy look. Dark wash skinny jeans—An absolute must (as likely the most diverse article in any woman’s closet). Pair-able with a dark blazer, a big, chunky sweater, OTK boots, […]
