As a blogger, I take in a lot of content from fellow style bloggers. Most of that content is too good to keep to myself. I wrote about a few of my favorite fashion bloggers a few years ago and since then, I’ve added/replaced some of them. To me, these personal style bloggers do a great job not only with their personal style but being able to let their personalities shine through as well. There’s only so many style blogs you can read before your eyes cross from seeing the same trend and handbag on every blogger’s page. Then there are style bloggers whose life stories are interwoven beautifully into their posts, making the visit to their site a pleasant one.
7 Female Style Bloggers You Should Know
1. Frédérique Tietcheu, I Go By Frankie: I’ll be honest…In my head, I dress like Carrie Bradshaw. But really, I dress like a school teacher who’s rebelling. Frédérique, aka Frankie, is like Carrie Bradshaw in the 70s. Something about her smile seems purely genuine through her photos. This Parisian is funky-fab and I can dig it.

As you may know, if you’ve been following my blog for a while and my other social platforms, I’m a proud Haitian-American. Seeing fellow Haitians display their pride online always makes me extremely happy. Enter Paola Mathe, blogger at Finding Paola and creator of Fanm Djanm headwraps.
If you haven’t noticed, I don’t really wear jewelry that much. And when I do, I choose very simple pieces. So when the lovely people at Rocksbox emailed me about a free three-month subscription, I was a little hesitant. Until I went to their website…
One of my many favorite things to do is to visit museums. I love history. What I love more is Black history. So when I heard that the Ebony Fashion Fair exhibit was coming to the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), I didn’t hesitate to volunteer.
Autumn, or Fall as it’s also called, is my favorite season. If you follow me on Tumblr or Pinterest, I think you already have a feel of my style and what I like. Autumn is when my personal style shines the most. I wish I could say I’m going to take more risks but I’m not. I like my style and the simplicity of it and I’m not trying to change unless I feel the urge to. I’ve been working on my closet for a while but this is ultimately what I want to see more of.
MORE BOOTS, BOOTIES AND ALL BLACK
Seriously, when I find a jacket like the one below, I’m going to wear it ALL THE TIME because it’s so BAD ASS.
So excited to feature a guest post by friend and fellow blogger, Danielle of Olive Juice & S’Mores blog. I reached out to her about collaborating because she has such a fun style, reflective of her personality. I saw a few of her Winter posts on Instagram and just knew a cool covering of her style is just the dusting this blog needed. So for today, we’ve switched blogs. Check hers out for my post. Don’t be shy, show her some love.
I’ve recently been obsessing over sweatshirts and how to jazz them up. Every time I wear one, I end up looking like a 14-year-old pubescent kid. Not cool. But comfort is ME. I’ve declared my style: comfort chic / understated snatched. Just give the people a little bit. Simple elegance. At least that’s what I think, lol.
So how exactly do you make a sweatshirt, chic?

Yesterday, I attended a grande gala hosted by the Consulate General of Haiti in Atlanta celebrating the arts, fashion and culture of Haiti. Held at the Westside Cultural Arts Center in Atlanta, we danced to the music, we dined on the traditional cuisine and most of all, we showed our support.
First of all, thank you to Danica Kombol, Lexi Severini and Kelly Heisler (not pictured) over at Everywhere for the gracious invite.
Last Wednesday, I got to chat with an incredible young woman: the fashionista slash philanthropist, Tai Beauchamp. She wears many hats but on that night, she was InStyle magazine’s Style Ambassador at the Macy’s Wardrobe Rush event. We gathered to hear Ms. Beauchamp give us styling tips and answer personal questions as well.
I really love when I meet truly genuine and down to earth celebrities (or maybe she’d prefer to be called a “personality”??).
Anywho, it was a fab event. Food, bubbly and fashionable people. I was even included in a blog for street style. BOOP!
