Style By StormieJ : STYLE DIARIES - Inspired by The Carrie Diaries

"The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel." ~ Piet Mondrian

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! As many of you know, I have been sick for the past week fighting a nasty cold. I kept a low profile for most of the week. I barely left my bed this past weekend because I felt so bad. No worries, I feel a lot better now. During my "bed quarantine" I binged watched a lot of TV shows including The Carrie Diaries. It is no longer a continued series :( but it was a prequel to Sex and the City.

I love love love both shows! The Carrie Diaries is one of my fave shows on Netflix. One of the many reasons why I love the show is because of Carrie's style! I am in total swoon over the color palettes, the play on prints and textures, the chic accessories - pretty much everything I live for when it comes to style! #FASHIONADDICT lol

After watching both seasons, I felt so inspired to create some looks of my own, in real life and online. (No worries, the looks I created from my wardrobe you will see on the blog :) ) I went to work creating different style sets based on different patterns and colors.

Don't get me wrong when I say this, but creating these looks were the most fun to make out of all of the style sets that I've made thus far. I think the reason why I had the most fun is because there were no restrictions or guide lines. I am usually creating looks for this or that event or occasion. It was liberating just to create for the sake of creating.

I was thinking... what if I created lookbooks based on the different characters from Sex and the City? I think that would be a lot of fun! Leave your thoughts below!

As  always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!



I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
