Why Every Girl Needs A Statement Coat!

Hey My Loves!

If you’ve been an OG follower of mine then you are very aware of my love for statement coats! They are literally perfect pieces to add to your wardrobe, and trust me they will come in handy on days when you’re sitting in your towel looking at your closet full of clothes saying wtf am I gonna wear to this event etc hahahah. I know I’m definitely guilty of saying what am I gonna wear while I’m looking at a 10 pairs of jeans, 15 sweaters, 6 button downs lol you get the drift, but don’t tell the hubbz I said that-hahahha.

Statement coats are everything, well first of all I love to layer, which is kinda why I dislike Summer because you cant layer 🙁 especially not with NYC heat smh. During the Summer I gotta be creative with my outfits and honestly I’m just tryna be nakey hahah omg what is wrong with me, I cant stay focus lolol. No, but I love the Fall, Winter, and even Spring as it allows you to wear a statement jacket of some sort.

Statement coats instantly makes you appear more stylish when all you did was put on a tee and a good pair of jeans and walah! Imagine wearing an all black look and then bam you add a bright neon pink coat over your shoulders. I actually own a faux fur Pink coat which I plan to wear very soon. Statement coats/ jackets brings life and personality to your outfit, you wanna know that girl with the beautiful coat, what’s she like? where does she shop? What does the inside of her closet look like and much more, I know I obsess when I see girls in beautiful coats.

I was too excited to wear this coat maybe that explains why I was ::Cheesin:: so much in this photo lol. We had a beautiful day in the city and I was feeling absolutely amazing, I had just released a few new arrivals on “Wrap Queen” and was so excited to make a video for my customers announcing that we finally have a new texting service so they no longer had to wait on an email to keep up with me!

Any whose love the simplicity of this coat and I love that it’s black and white; which means I can wear it in so many ways. I just love pairing black and white with red so that was an obvious outfit choice for me. I would love to pull this coat off in the Spring as well wearing pastel colors- omg imagine ugh can’t wait….Stay Tuned!:) Oh and feel free to use code S1island15 for $ off .

Chunky Sweater…Yes Please!

Hey My Loves!

How are you? I hope you all are doing great and trying your best to stick to your New year goals. I know I am for sure. Although I can’t seem to go to bed early for the life of me. And I definitely need the sleep as I am a witch in the morning lol -and I’m not a coffee drinker- so you can imagine my poor kid and the hubby having to deal with me. Oh btw my new fave thing is listening to podcasts before I go to bed; quickest and easiest way to fall asleep. Let me know if you want me to share my faves! Okay moving on. I had no idea I Loved Chunky sweaters until now, when I tell you I need them in every color believe mehhh.

This sweater is so bomb you guys, so cozy and the colors I die. So I’m not sure if you remember but I’ve always said that I love all the colors… lol- well guess what I lied haha my fave is orange. I love the way it looks on my skin, yellow is a close second fave but orange has my heart. I love that the sweater has the right amount of orange/ rust. It gives off an expensive luxurious feel which I’m here for!

We’ve been having some really nice NYC days. This day it was 63 degrees & your gurl was so happy which is why I turned my sweater into a cropped version and I think I loved it even more. I decided to wear a simple denim with this look as I wanted all the attention on my sweater. I felt like my headwrap and sweater stole the show-heheh.

Shopping Tips When It Comes To Footwear

Shopping Tips When It Comes To Footwear

Hey My Loves!

Shopping for footwear can be easy for some but a real challenge for others. Trying to find a great pair of shoes or having to replace a few of our fave but battered ones on your current shoe rack is tough but necessary. So here are a few shopping tips when it comes to footwear.

Image Source

Know Your Size

Knowing your size is important because it can help you find the right size or know where you need to be looking when it comes to the perfect fit. A lot of the sizes can differ when you go from store to store, but most will end up being the same. Don’t forget that not everyone’s feet are just about size. Some have issues with the width of their foot whilst others have a flat foot with no arch. These can all lead to different requests that are needed like getting womens extra wide calf boots. So know your sizing where possible to help cut out as much fuss as possible.

Find The Right Material For Your Feet

Depending on the health of your feet, some people may need a more breathable material, whether that’s because their feet sweat more or maybe you suffer from a foot condition like athlete’s foot, for example. Look at what materials have worked for you in the past and what hasn’t worked so well. Anything that’s going to suffocate your feet, and it’s ability to breathe is never going to be good but then you want a material that’s durable, or that might be water-proof. So finding a balance is tough, but it’s always worth doing trial and error when it comes to these things.

Invest In Quality

Quality is true for most things in life, and when it comes to footwear, it’s probably the one area where it makes the most difference. Considering that you’re putting constant pressure and movement into your shoes, you want them to last. And the only way that this can really happen is if it’s a level of high quality. Yes, it might cost more but it’s likely to be more effective in providing comfort but also the longevity that you’re after.

Go For Neutral Colors

Neutral colors aren’t going to clash, and when you’re buying shoes, you might want to consider going for colors that are more basic. That way, you can reduce the amount you buy because each pair of shoes will work well with a number of outfits. Black and brown are usually two that go well with most outfits. Make sure you have one of each in your wardrobe, whether that’s in the form of your boots or a court shoe.

When shopping for footwear, be sure to try everything on and that you’ve done the walk around the shops a few times. Ensure that the comfort is there, and you feel confident that this comfort isn’t just a temporary thing. Make sure the style works for you and your wardrobe, too, because that’s super important you guys!

Revamping Islandchic!

Revamping Islandchic!

Hey My loves! I know I know many of you are probably wondering where the heck are my older post, but unfortunately we had a bit of a hiccup and lost our website- yes years and years of content. We tried our best to get the site back but GOdaddy couldn’t bring it back. I’m heart broken, so sad literally crying right now as I can’t believe it’s gone. Like how? There must be some way to get it back right? Trust me I thought the same thing. I argued with the hubbz I stomped my feet threw things broke things but none of those things brought it back. I have so many memories of my son and pix together that I will never get back, but I’m trying to stay strong. I know things like this happens to influencers all the time, whether you’re hacked and have to start from scratch and build again. The hubbz told me he may have a hard drive with older content but he hasn’t sort that out yet, so who knows. At this point I just want to go all in and produce a ton of content for you guys. As this is my passion, IslandChic is my baby. Islandchic helped me start “Wrap Queen” so I’m forever grateful. Anyway starting fresh I think is exactly what I need going into the new year. If I’m able to bring back any popular posts I’ll definitely share them with you. Please feel free to share with me in the comments any words of encouragement, as I need it. Now let’s talk about this look!

When I tell you this coat is everything- believe me! I absolutely love it. Although I dislike Winter I live for Winter fashion. I love layering. This coat right here is theee perfect statement coat. I’m literally harassed on the street each time I wear it with folks stopping me to ask questions about it.  Safe to say it’s one of  my fave Winter coats.

I decided to pair it with an all black look for that extra chic vibe. Very NYC lol. I’m also normally a heels kinda girl but I was headed to the city so white sneaks it was. Oh and how cute is this bag, I took the straps off and made it a mini purse and I’m obsessed. Of course I had to add a headwrap to finish my look and I went with a nude  solid color so the coat can get all the attention! I’ll be bringing you more Winter Looks so please make sure to subscribe and comment too. <3

Thanks For Reading you guys,

Tis The Season

Tis The Season

Hey My loves!

So we made it to the end of the year, can you believe that! I felt like the time just flew by. I swore it was summer just a week ago week ago {Does the Shmoney Dance} hahah- I’m sure no one does that dance anymore. Anywhosee took these pix Christmas Eve with the Fam. We did some last minute shopping which included Sephora! I so owe you guys a sephora haul. I have so many faves from there that y’all are gonna love! Tons of skin care stuff too. We also stopped at the Leggo store, got some gifts for my boy and a grabbed a bite to eat.

I decided to wear red because it’s the holidays and I seem to always wear that color during this time especially my “Red Velvet “wrap. December in NYC has been super warm compared to past Winter temps so my look was perfect; and easy. Tee jeans and a long coat. My outfit cocktail. Quick outfit trick try wearing the same colors “Monochrome” it always looks super expensive but most importantly put together. Took this shot on our way out and I adore it. We spend the rest of the night wrapping gifts and watching movies.

It’s Winter Baby

It’s Winter Baby

Hey My loves!

Miss Me? Miss u!! So what’s been going on you ask? Well I’ve been a busy bee over at WrapQueen with holiday orders and such, plus being a mom which I’m so absolutely grateful for. But can I tell you that I jumped at the chance to not look like a homeless person. The other day I did a quick photo shoot with a friend totally last minute as she was leaving to Germany the same night as the shoot, so instead of my usual sweat pants attire I decided to throw some jeans on my booties and my fur and head out the door- I felt amazing sigh… I can’t wait to serve some looks this Winter. As much as I despise the cold weather; I do enjoy dressing up for it. The layers the booties the thick sweaters….I die!!!

We ended up at Starbucks where it was nice and warm catched up for a little and said our goodbyes, as soon as we left it snowed. It’s Winter baby!

Thanks For Reading you Guys!
