I'm Killy, my friends call me Kills. I am A Fashion Design student, I spend my time dreaming of tulle fabric, globe trotting, and love all things fashion and harry potter! I feel that fashion is very subjective! It is a way to express yourself and show individuality, so ignore the noise (choose to be YOU)!" This is my little online fashion diary, and I hope you enjoy reading it and coming along for the ride.
With the state of national affairs at the moment, things are feeling a bit blue, grey, an black: practically all the colors that resemble darkness.Despite the horrible results of the election, I am determined to stay positive and fight a little fire with fire. This reality makes the future seams uneasy, it makes me angry, feel like the voice we have isn’t beening heard, and the only hope left is in a sense of togetherness with people who understand the same hope you have for the future.
I know this is more of a summery outfit but I adore this look! Beside it reminding me of the warm filled air, and sunny skies; its just really nice to get some color. Guys I’ve been incredibly busy as of late and everything seems to be entrapping me; I’m feeling a bit like a butterfly wanting to fly away. But I told you guys I am very determined to not be down about things, so for now I will dance like no other! And leave my worries behind!! Even though there’s no music playing-I think I will continue to have a non-stop dance party!
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!!

I love to get dressed up no matter what time of day, I think it’s just the feeling of being a GIRL! Hours in the bathroom with tons of make up product scattered all over the bathroom and huge piles of clothing everywhere after I’ve basically tried the entire content of my closet on. In this particular outfit I’m all sparkly eyed and earrings with even matchy-match heels with nowhere to go. Sometimes I do dress up even though I have nowhere to go, why you ask? Because simply I love fashion and I love the feeling that you get when wearing the perfect outfit. Like this outfit I feel confident; Why, because I simply feel myself in this outfit. I love mixing girly and boyish and this outfit is totally that, I have quite an obsession with bow ties (especially for woman, its just vey chic and it can give a girlish outfit some certain boyish charms. This outfit is showing you my cinderella side as well as my prince charming side….I mean why can’t you be both.
Now days I think woman get all dolled up for men. ( I DON’T THINK SO) NO NO… I mean yes when going on dates you want to look nice or just an evening out with your guy is great, I mean nothing wrong with that. But if that’s a big priority; just getting dressed for others ( especially a guy), then you really need to think that over. Because you shouldn’t be dressing for anyone but yourself. Ladies its all about that Self love!
The spunky and brilliant Betsey Johnson says ” Girls DO NOT dress for boys. They dress for themselves and of course each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.” Amen! Preach it sister!
That may be true for some but the majority still seek approval and us powerful woman don’t need anyones approval but our own (maybe those close to us-but other than that none).
You guys All know by I’m a pretty huge hopeless romantic but at the same time I ‘m all about #GIRLPOWER! Sure its great to dream about finding your Prince charming (or How I like to say it-Prince Charmant) but you can’t just be dependent or reply on some guy to sustain you for the rest of your life. I think before your really able to be in the “IT” relationship you have to be your own Prince Charming and rescue yourself. And for me that’s all about staying true to who I am and that means my career comes first and if you find Charming along the way then great but never put aside your happiness for some guy. I’d much rather be happy and single then in some relationship and give up will of choice to choose where my actions are directed, and to be honest right now that’s exactly where I am in my life right now. Happily Single! staying focus on what really matters and trying to balance it all, while trying to maintain some semblance of a life. Staying Happy! Happily Grey!!
I am such a Lipstick junkie. I’m looking through my make-up chest(that’s right, chest) and realized I had a giant tote bag of makeup I’ve collected this year. So many newly products: I have a corner for my usual everyday make-up, another for that perfect date night look with hints of sparkle( That perfect, sparkling gold makeup palettes//where he will not stop staring at you), and another for ton of scramble mixed up makeup. So I’ve been working on plenty more beauty content as of late, and I have to admit- it’s been a lot of fun! I know I’m no beauty expert, but I am pretty good makeup expert. I only realized recently that I’ve never actually done a post about makeup- so here’s to my very first makeup post!
I am always on the prowl for the next best lipstick, and I’m already obsessed with the newMac,NYX, Nars, and Bobbi brown. But its always nice to discover new brands and I’m so glad Ive gotten the opportunity to discover Studio Gear Cosmetics , their products are so pucker-up worthy! This label amazes me, especially in the beauty department. Their new matte collection includes 6 different shades, which are so effortless, easy, and totally kissable. These lipsticks are 6 different shades of red and pink and flatters literally every skin color. It’s the fact that they’re made to have biddable color that has drawn me to this collection.
One thing I’ve learned over the years when it comes to make-up is: less is certainly more. Especially for us girls on the go. So I like to go light to the make with a thin cat eye, light rosy cheeks and super BOLD Lips?
For all the lips colors I line my lips with a favorite deep red pencil liner by Nyx and you can get this at any Ulta store.
Apply the Lipstick and get the the full richness amount that you want, then smack your lips together (making sure its even all around. And Voila!
Work those Lips! SMOOCHES!
This is what color is more like bubble Gum Pink! Yumm!
Laugh and smile a lot it really brings out the lip color!
and Yes I know my eyes are HUGE (I get that a lot)TRUE MAGENTAI call this look the “Where’s Waldo” in this case Where’s Killy??? (pretending to be Waldo)
This color is truly Elle Woods worthy!
P.S: BE sure to check out my video on my YouTube channel showing you what I do to prepare my lips when wearing the 6 different shades
