Another week has almost been and gone by and my goodness how quick time is a flying. I simply feel like time is non-existent to the point of how fast its past us, can you believe we’re already practically half way through October!? My goodness gracious thees months go by quickly! and way too soon it will be Christmas.
Now Autumn is here… Well kind of here, I’m also completely awestruck at how light autumn started with still a bunch of warm weather that it felt like there was still a bit warmth of summer leftover. Been Waking up each and every day to the most beautiful sunshine, and when you go outside you can see an ray of leaf colors.
Despite kicking off Autumn, it’s that time of year that spurts different activities. Fun ones and ones that you couldn’t do in summer!
I love to do some things during the fall season and some of those things include:
Some fall favorites at the moment are….
- Cider Donuts
- pumpkin patches
- apple cider
- apple orchards
- shopping for fall items
- favorite clothing item during fall: Flare pants
- leaf pile
- apple picking
- pumpkin and apple pie ice cream flavor! Yummy!
Dancing Queen over HERE! I absolutely just love a good party, Love a good song, and that’s all it takes; you betcha ya my legs will out on the dance spinning, twirling and boogieing the night away!

This dress has me feeling some type of way because I just can’t stop dancing and twirling. As you all know mustard green or should I start calling it chartreuse; anyways it happens to be my favorite color and lately I seem to be buying a lot of that color and I just can’t get enough of it. I was recently was in the biggest Zara store and I couldn’t help but falling in love with the most gorgeous of all mustard-green long cardigan and later on that week I realized I loved that color on that sweater so much that I went back to purchase the regular sweater in mustard-green. Hehe….. With the change in weather this is a color that I tend to wear quite a bit so be prepared to see mustard-green a lotta on Haitian Fashionista.
I absolutely love the simplicity of this dress (sometimes simply is better :)). You guys know the deep V front lace up trend has been huge for a while but as per usual I’m one to shy away from trends especially one like this. As a rule I usually make to not show too much in the bust area because I am more top heavy (I am as they call it an inverted triangle shape) but lately I’ve been pretty good with going outside of my comfort zone but after I got used to the style I realized it was a style I really liked. Hopefully I would I will be able to find more front V lace up styles that I feel comfortable in.
I love a good Twirl! whether I’m dancing by myself or with a partner, I’ve just got to have that twirl!
Non-Stop dancing over here! Won’t stop! Can’t Stop!
I’ve come to the realization that that I prefer silver jewelry, besides my tiny gold pearl necklace that I wear constantly and never take off I have quite an abundance of silver jewelry!

So you may have seen all my New York City pictures on my Instagram well that’s because this Haitian Fashionista is a city girl and I’ve been spending quite some time here in in the Big Apple and its a place that I just Love. Its my fall break and I just decided to go and I’m also deciding where to make the “BIG MOVE”; which New York City is starting to look like its going to be my next big move. Landed in NYC bright in early and so ready to see the city and everything it has to Offer me.
First day in the Big Apple and decided to go the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, it is an absolutely beautiful, I had never been there and it was a sight I wanted to see; the picture above is actually of me right in the from of the Cathedral. You see me with me favorite fashionable tennies; which let me tell you is fantastic for wearing in here in New York, and let me tell you absolutely perfect for the walking I did the weeks I was here in the big apple.
But one of my favorite things I did while here was to go to the Chelsea market, its beyond cool because there is so many things to do in there; they have a food area, lots of things to see, and of course lots of shopping ( my favorite). So there a section the Chelsea market where a ton of designers are in one space they sell a lot of their creations. While there I found a booth that sold spoon and fork jewelry so of course O gravitated towards shiny silver. I found a pair of fork earrings but the thing is she didn’t have another fork to match it so I got a spoon; so yes I wear a fork earring on one ear and a spoon earring on the other ear (you’ll see them below in those pictures). You guys are prolly asking what abut the shopping Girl? Oh yes I shopped my butt off. I went to my favorite thrift store which is Beacons Closet in Brooklyn and was also able to introduce some of my other friends to that store. But yes I thrifted a lot but the only regular store I shopped at was Zara, and I did go a little crazy in there because I practically felt in love with every piece but don’t worry I only came out purchasing three pieces.
Guys I did something for the very first time and it was incredible! I took a ferry to Staten Island for the very first time, IT was awesome! I was so close to the statue of Liberty and and I was moving from floor to floor on each deck and even though the day was extremely windy I was not gonna let that ruin my day and this moment.
I just love Central Park, its actually one of my favorite places here in New York; it just feels like a movie, just so unreal! I mean the picture below this writing is actually what you see in a lot of movies; where people are always walking and talking and kissing, I literally just felt like I was in a musical. Every time I’m in Central Park I just want to set down a blanket and have a lovely picnic and also occasionally brake out to a song, sing and dance my heart out.
So I spent a whole day in the garment District just walking an adventuring and following the fashion fabrics. I followed the fashion line all the way to Mood Fabrics and if you guys don’t know what that is its a huge fabric store that sells all kinds of fabrics. They also have an online store ( Mood.com) if you want to go and check it out.
I Love you New York City!

A couple weeks ago I got in contact with the team at Eshakti to work with them and I was just absolutely beyond filled with joy to get to collaborate with them, as this being my my second time collaborating with them. I’m a huge fan of Eshakti, . I am absolutely in love with this dress! For those of you who don’t know the brand Eshakti; well they are a brand that believes “that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best”, in fact that is basically their motto. Eshakti began as a website offering cute, basic, and modestly embellished pieces but they offer so much more than a regular website. Right when you enter their website at the very top you are able to register and when you register you can get a 30 dollar gift coupon towards your purchase, And something very importantly and unique about Eshakti is that they offer both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36; which is where their motto comes in hand because they are all about woman of all shapes and sizes and that true beauty isn’t about a size 0, its about a staying true to yourselves and that no matter your size you are beautiful. I am absolutely in love with my floral pink and navy dress, it is absolutely super comfortable and the beauty of it is that you can dress it up or dress it down. But I decided to dress it bit on the dressy side with bright pink lips and these gorgeous heels, I literally felt like I was ready for a dinner date. The dress is originally a sleeveless maxi dress but because Eshakti is such a unique site you get to make your order to whatever your specific; like you can order something short sleeve, long sleeve make it or or the other or other it as a maxi, 3/4 length really whatever length you want it to be. So when you order your item you want to take into account your size( meaning height and dress size) and I ordered this floral print crepe surplice maxi dress with a a Three quarter length Sleeve Type. I loved the sleeveless but with fall coming I thought it to be the perfect early fall dress. Also don’t forget to use my code “Haitianfashionista” to get an exculively 10% OFF when you shop at Eshakti and that’s valid through the November 16.
Yikes!! Pink Lips!
When I originally put on this Bright pink Lipstick, all I think is Niki Minaj : Yikes, mostly because its so bright and soooo pink and real up in your face. But when I stop for one second and stop losing my cool and stop freaking out the color is perfection and looks amazing. Guys go outside your lip color norm! I promise it’ will be worth it and better yet you might even like the new color.
This is actually my very first time wearing these Cole Haan heels, and they are soooooo cute!!
