So I stumbled upon this shoe designer recently as I have a major obsession with shoes lol. Even though I am always drooling over a pair of Christian Louboutins, YSL or the super hard to get, coveted Isabel Marant sneaker wedge, this design diva does not get enough credit!
Her name is Ruthie Davis! A Connecticut bred girl with a passion for design (CT Stand Up! Lol), who launched her own line in 2006, after breathing new life into brands like Reebok and uber popular UGG Australia, transforming the sleepy surfer boot into a fashion statement desired among all ages. Her designs have caught the eyes of devoted fans like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez.
She is known for her architectural shapes, elevated mix of materials, quality and amazing color allowing each shoe to have a point of view, as well as a point of difference, with never-ending creativity. I love that she is also very hands on with the brand, sketching all of her shoe designs by hand!
Ruthie Davis shoes are for women with a strong sense of style and self, much like the designer herself!Her line can be found in major retailers like Saks, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus as well as online at her website and has been recognized as a work of art at the New Britain Museum of American Art in an exhibit of her shoe designs called “Ruthie Davis: COUTURE FUTURISTIC DESIGN”.
She is proof that no matter where you are from, you can make your dreams come to reality if you work hard toward your goals. Connecticut is definitely not known for fashion or the fashion industry, but she made it work regardless of the odds!
Check her out!!
Cee you soon ❤
Ok so I have been very inspired by all the black girls going natural these days! I have always loved crazy curls and big cool hair so I have started what they call the “transitioning” process. Because my hair is “relaxed” or permed straight, I’m letting my hair grow out which means no more perks baby! This might be hard but so far I’m loving the transitioning looks I’ve learned. Check me out below 😀
I learned about these looks from a great YouTube channel that I stumbled upon through my Facebook news feed! Meme’s Natural Hair Grind has amazing tips, tricks and suggestive product! Check her out!
In other news, since this is a FASHION blog lol I am loving Solange(Beyonce’s younger sister) new add campaign for Madewell clothing store. I dream of my hair looking as full, curly and crazy as hers! She looks amazing in the madewell stuff too. They have really cute preppy looks and great silky, flowy tops too! Check her out!!

Sooo I know I have been slacking on my blogging big time! It’s so fun to do but very time consuming especially with all the craziness that has been going on!
How about this for a welcoming home: two weeks ago after a busy day of work and a long visit with my family I get to my apartment to find out that somebody had thee nerve to come into m apartment steal my hard earned possessions, trash my place and nicely lock the door back. Seriously pissed me off! The best part is my property manager were more concerned about me getting my delivered package from the office rather than follow up with my burglary! Then when I mention that no one had followed up with me, she wants to make an appointment to change my locks two weeks after somebody violated my privacy which they informed me another tenant was robbed the same way the night before! Talk about managing the property, I think not! SMH
Good thing I have great friends though! I was able to have a few nights out on the town in NYC with some great people! Poetry, dancing and fashion can never get old! This Sunday we checked out a place called Latitude Bar & Grill on 8th Ave in NYC! It had an amazing rooftop setting and a great view! Music was off the hook and definitely had to style on em! Lol
