2013

Hello All. I have to apologize for the lack of new outfit post, I'm having some technical difficulties aka my camera is broken. In the mean time, while I wait for my new and way better camera to be delivered, I wanted to share some of my favorite looks from this past year.
2013 wasn't the greatest year for me personally, but I know that 2014 is going to be amazing and for that I am truly grateful and I hope that you all will be there to share in my adventures.

Glamour


Just a quick blurb today because I have tons to do and I am too absorb in this new Beyoncé album to fully concentrate. The closer and closer we get to the holidays, the more I find myself gravitating toward holiday inspired frocks but of course I have to add my bit of glamour to everything. Red and white are two of the seasons classic color combos but I added a touch of black and gold to the mix. This vintage muff keeps my hand super warm and it just has a certain sophistication that gloves just can't give.
I encourage  you all to try a muff this winter to wear to your holiday parties and even everyday use because it will certainly amp up the glamour factor.

Vintage Fur





We have certainly had some crazy weather this past week. One day was sunny and almost 70 degrees and the next day is snow and hailing. These pictures were clearly taken in the latter. I got this fabulous vintage fur coat last week when I visited Minnesota. I love the soft fur and the color is to die for. This won't be the last time you see me in this, I plan on wearing it straight through till spring.

I finally ironed out the details of my upcoming giveaway so stay tuned for that this Wednesday. For more great content check me out on instagram @according2trish

Sparkle




A couple of weeks ago I was so happy to attend the engagement party of one of my good college friends, Robeya and her fiancé Terrance. It was a great night filled with family, friends and love. Even though my college friends and I stay in touch quite often it was good to physically see everyone and catch up.

The event was a semi-formal event so I chose to wear this festive thrifted dress to celebrate the occasion. I know I've explained once or twice (or a million) times here on the blog how great thrifting can be but seriously you can really find great stuff at the thrift store, if your willing to look and maybe to an alteration or two. This sparkly dress would be perfect for a holiday party or New years eve and I'm sure the are 100's more like it in you local thrift/ consignment store.

Man up


I hope you all had a great thanksgiving. I'm currently in Minnesota visiting the future in-laws and having a great time. Besides it being like 0° F, Minnesota is actual pretty cool. Tax free shopping, the Mall of America, and some great places to eat have made this place quite comfortable for me. 
Before I left Maryland, I was able to snap these picture and as composed as they look I must tell you that I was freezing!! Even though it's almost winter, I still think you can bare a bit of skin and still keep warm. The trick to rocking a crop top in the cold is by being mostly covered up otherwise. 
Well, I'm on my way out the door so I will talk to you all super soon. To catch up with me and see some more great content, follow me on instagram @according2trish

Boom with a vinyl skirt

Now I know that you have probably seen this sweatshirt on every single blogger but this is how I rock it. Ever since I purchased this sweatshirt, this is how I imagined wearing it. I had to have this vinyl skirt, so I made it. I feel like this outfit is a little more playful then my usual chic/sexy looks.

Orange Print

Now that it's getting closer and closer to the end of the year, I find myself gravitating more and more toward fabulous dresses I can don for the holidays. This amazing printed maxi number was purchased at the Gilt City warehouse sale in DC. It was my first time going to the sale, which happens twice a year, but it definitely won't be my last. My advice, if you do get to go to Gilt City warehouse sale in you city, that you try to get one of the earliest slots. I got there in the early afternoon and the fine pickings were all but gone. Though slim pickings, I was able to snatch up this dress and two other fabulous pieces.
I have some great things coming up on the blog this week, including a giveaway and video, so I do hope to see you back here.

The Cape


There is nothing like a cape to make a girl feel ultra fabulous and chic. This cape just makes me feel so bordeaux-esque.

Fuchsia




A week ago, I had the pleasure of the attending an event at Eduardo Depandi, a luxury suit shop owned by Eduardo Depandi, Giuliana Rancic's father. The store was filled with beautifully tailored suits and guest were treated to champagne and sweets.  I was so trilled to meet Giuliana and he husband, Bill.  They are like the cutest couple (besides me and my babe of course lol). 
 I wanted to be classy yet sexy and I think I got the ultimate approval when Giuliana 'fashion police' Rancic told me that I looked fabulous!

Emerald with envy





Took a little trip up to Baltimore yesterday to take care of some business and found myself completely surrounded by amazing places to shoot. These murals we're literally with in the same block. I had such a great time walking around and admiring the street art. My favorite mural (which I didn't get a chance to shoot) was of a the super hero Flash in robotic form. It is just so amazing to see how talented people really are because I am a big art admirer. Sometimes I wish I was artistic in that sense but I'm just thankful and truly blessed to channel my artistic nature with clothing and food. It was really cool to find other forms of art that evoked a tone similar to my artistic piece, my outfit. 
Well enough with my ramblings, I hope you all have an artfully beautiful day.

Gone with the wind

 I can't believe it's November, the beginning of the holiday season and almost the end of the year. I've had a crazy year but am looking forward to ending the year on a very positive note and continuing that on into the new year.
Yesterday after a great church service, I took my beloved pup, Melody, to the lake for a walk. She is just a big ball of energy and always ready to play.
I'm fast realizing that I wont be able to not wear a coat any more. I wore this outfit first, without the jacket and then became super cold and had to put it on. This skirt from H&M is just too fabulous for words. I love how sophisticated and polished it looks. It kind of reminds me of Barbara O'neill from gone with the wind, hence the name of the post.

Everything that glitters


Happy Friday beautiful!! Hope you all had a very great and productive week. My week was filled with work errands and events. This outfit was worn on this past wednesday to two different event I attend. One was the worn magazine creative collective, the other was a event held for the United colors of Benetton. I had an exceptionally good at the Benetton party. They served amazing selection of hors d'œuvres and had a great open bar. That was basically the highlight of the night.
Now a little bit about this outfit, the skirt and bag are both pieces I scored while in Amsterdam last year.  The gold velvet like fabric of the skirt screams regality so I had to pair it with my great vintage fur.

Hope you all have a great weekend. To see my weekend happenings check out my instagram @according2trish and Facebook.com/fashionaccordingtothemenu

Central Michel Richard



It's been a while since I've done my last food review( here) and I am so disappointed in myself for that because I have been to some great places since then. I'm definitely going to start doing them again because I love sharing great my culinary experience. Today's review is for the DC restaurant, Central Michel Richard.

Man repeller

 Last week the Man repeller, aka Leandra Medine , came to DC to do a book signing for her new book, Man repeller: Seeking love, finding overalls . When I first heard about the event I knew I would be in attendance but I wasn't quite sure what  to wear. I thought my usually ultra feminine style, wouldn't be appropriate for a Man repeller party so I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something new, Boyfriend Jeans. Yes, this is my first and only pair of boyfriend jeans and I am ashamed that I waited so long to try them. They are super duper comfy and I still feel pretty feminine in them. (Side note: I actually DIY them to make them distressed. I'm getting really DIY obsessed all of a sudden lol)
I paired the jeans with my go to fall booties, crop top, embellished blazer and clutch.
Funny story, at the book signing I met a girl would had a clutch almost identical to mine but hers was vintage from the 70s.   Crazy right?!
Anyway I hope you all have a fab friday and even fabber (yes, I made that word up) weekend!!

Santa Fe Stuffed Peppers and Spanish Quinoa



 I'm going to save you the lame excuses as to why I haven't done a food post in a while and just say that I will start doing them again and more often. Now to the recipe, this dish came to fruition because of a strong craving for spanish cuisine one night. I searched my pinterest for a recipe that would satisfy this craving and came across this one. I thought this was a pretty health conscious choice but I wanted to add some kind of carb to it. I thought of making a mexican rice but thought it would be counter intuitive to eat rice with such a figure friendly dish like stuff peppers. Cue the Quinoa. I figured I could satisfy my rice craving with a tasty quinoa substitute. This make shift recipe came out even better than I could imagine. I probably won't eat spanish rice ever again (lie lol). Any way if you want to know how I made the peppers, check out the recipe above and the recipe for the quinoa and more pictures are below.

Wild Thing



I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Mine was filled with organizing, cleaning, cooking, open houses, showings, pictures and rain. It rained the entire weekend! I was barely able to get pictures taken. Well hopefully we will have a dryer week. I don't mind the cool air very much but the cool air mixed with rain in a no bueno. 
3.1 Philip Lim X Target. Need I say more. This is another piece I was able to snag on the day of the launch. I chose to style the top with a vintage leather pencil skirt,  my go to leopard pumps and my dear cookie monster.

I know many people have gotten their hands on this top from the collection but I bet no one has styled it like this. See that's the thing about style, you can take a piece that everyone has and transform it into something totally unique. I hope that you will take the pieces you have and put your own, totally unique spin on it.

Mirrored prints and white



Just a beautiful day by the Georgetown water front. If you've never been, you must go!!! 
This weather is so bipolar it doesn't know if it wants to be summer or fall. So I dressed for the most appropriate season which is, both! I'm summery with all the colors and white background and fall-y, with the layering and the suede heels. It's kind fun mixing two seasons. I don't think the weather will be allowing me to do this much longer but it was great to experiment for that day.
Now, I got to talk about my clutch. I call her Cookie, as in cookie monster. She was a bag that I diy'd with that fabulous blue trim. Don't get me wrong Cookie is kind of heavy but she is just the most adorable thing ever!!!

Mixed Monochrome



Happy Monday all!! I am in the process of moving but wanted to do a quick post of an outfit I wore last week. I know that there are thousands of ways to rock the black and white "Trend" but I love how it looks when different prints are paired. I am no stranger to the mixing my prints (see here, here and here) but there is just something so chic and clean when those prints are black and white. Expect to see this color combo on me a lot this fall.
Alright so I have so much unpacking to do so I am going to sign off now. Hope you all have a wonderful week and don't forget to check out my instagram @according2trish for even more great content.

NYFW Day 5


This is the last outfit I wore for New York Fashion Week. I wish I could have stayed longer because I love fashion week but of course duty calls and I had to get back to work. This jacket is pure sickness!! I have been holding on this baby since February waiting to bust it out at the right moment. I think fashion week was the perfect moment!!! The pops of red I added really brought this outfit up a notch. Trust that this will not be the last time you see me in this baby. It will be back!!!

NYFW Day 4: Feathers and Leather




This is probably my favorite outfit from fashion week. I love feathers and this fabulous feather stole, that I found in a quant vintage shop in Amsterdam, is beyond amazing. You wouldn't believe that this actually goes around your neck but I decided to put a Trisha twist on it and tie it around my waist to give a sort of peplum allusion.
I am really into leather this fall. Like I can't get enough of it. I love how this dress isn't completely leather because it makes it that much more interesting.
I just want to warn you all now, these shoes are so chic and comfortable and you will see me wear them  a lot this fall. Speaking of fall, its actually officially fall now. I can't believe how quickly this year seems to be going by. Like many others, fall is my favorite season but I am dreading the colder weather to come. Well, I'm sure I have something else to do right now so I going to stop typing and wish you all a great week!!
Thanks so much for reading and for even more amazing content check out my instagram @according2trish .

Puerto Rico


I figure I'd take a break from my NYFW post to share with you some of my photos from Puerto Rico. As I told you I was in Puerto Rico for a short vacation and I wanted to do a "little" photo diary to show you all of the amazing things I was able to see and experience while I was there. With this chill in the air that we're having on the east coast, I am  certainly missing that Puerto Rican sunshine.
 We stayed at the Embassy Suites and Casino, which was great. They have free breakfast in the morning and a free cocktail time between 5:30-7:30pm every evening. I would definitely recommend staying there.
Food selection was also good in Puerto Rico. When you're there you must try the Mofongo, which is a Puerto Rican dish made of plantains and which ever kind of meat (or veggies) you choose.

The beaches in Puerto Rico are beautiful (not as beautiful as Barbados lol). We had so much fun walking around the beaches and old San Juan. Old San Juan is full of such rich history and beautiful architecture, I felt like I was in a little city in the Middle of Spain. Another great thing to do while in old   San Juan, besides walking around and taking in the beautiful scenery, is visit the Bacardi brewery. It's such a good tour and it free. After the tour you get  two free samples of Bacardi cocktails. Such a great deal!
 All in all I had a very good time and would definitely love to go again. If you have visited Puerto Rico and have any suggests  I missed or have any questions I can answer please leave a comments below. Also you can check out even more photos from my Puerto Rican trip on my instagram @according2trish and my facebook page

NYFW Day 3


Here's a look at what I wore on the third day of New York fashion week. This outfit is one of my favorites because the skirt was a DIY project. Yes I made that skirt! It took me two long partial days but I made it and I think it came out beautifully.
I was so excited to find a vintage bustier in my size (I guess woman didn't have big boobs back then). I have been looking for a while and finally grab this one off of ebay. 
I am still in Puerto Rico enjoying the beautiful sunshine but will be flying back home tonight, to what I'm told is "Fall-like" weather. Well I'm headed to the beach for the last time, I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a fantastic rest of the week.

NYFW: Crop top and mixed prints





During NYFW, it's all about wardrobe changes. I wore this outfit on the second day of fashion week as well but later in the day. This was my dinner outfit. Speaking of dinner, meals during NYFW are usually few and far between and when you do get a chance to eat, you want it to be something really good. Unfortunately, our epicurean luck was bad and we didn't really have too many great meals. 

As I type I am currently enjoying a much needed vacation in Puerto Rico. After such a stressful, yet amazing, time at New York Fashion Week you want to be able to relax and recharge yourself and this trip is my attempt at that. I can't wait to share some of the beautiful pictures that I'm taking here. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I would love to hear about your plans, so leave your comments below. You can also follow along with my adventures on instagram @according2trish.

NYFW Day 2


Hello all, I hope you've enjoyed your weekend. As I type this I am currently in New York for fashion week. Fashion week is one of my favorite times of the year and this trip has been a blast. I have had some truly great experiences. I attended a few shows (which I will be giving you a sneak peek of soon) and have had my fill of fashion lounges and events. I am truly appreciative of the experiences I get to have because of my blog. I can't wait to show you all of the great photos that I took. Until then, here are the pictures I took of my first look which was taken on the second day of Fashion week.

Lace and Denim


As a Realtor by day, I don't really have the typical 9 to 5 Monday through Friday schedule. So on weekends, when I am showing house or having a open houses, I still have to dress somewhat professionally. I choose to add relaxed elements to my outfit as to not look so stuffy, after all it is the weekend. This look is one that I have been dying to try. The femininity of the lace paired with the edge of the denim top is such an great pair to me. Every one knows I love fusion, in both food and style. The denim top was perfect for giving me just enough warmth now that the weather is becoming slightly cooler. I don't want to believe that fall is just around the corner. Though fall is my favorite season, the year just seems to be going by too quickly.

In other news, I am super ecstatic to be going to New York Fashion Week next week. I love going to the shows and just being around all of the beautiful fashion. I don't have all of my outfit completely ready yet but I'm sure I will get them done in time. I can't wait to show you all of the outfits I've curated (here some from last year) . If your going to NYFW let me know, would love to meet up with some of you!

Mirrored Print



Mirrored prints were a huge trend this year and I decided to give it a try with this fabulous Jcpenny skirt. I wore this outfit to Cocktails with Claire, an event where the blogger behind Fashion Bomb Daily came to DC (and a few other city) to have a party with some of her readers. She is such a beautiful and gracious woman and it was a pleasure to meet her. Well I've got to go, these houses won't sell them selves. Happy monday to all!!!!

Peach Almond Crumble



It's hard to believe that the summer is almost over *cue the violins*. But just because the summer is ending doesn't mean we still can't enjoy all of our favorite summer goodies. Peaches are definitely one of my favorite summer treats and to be able to make a tasty dessert with them, is just icing on the cake, (or should I say, crumble on the peaches).  To find out how I made this delicious dessert, check out the recipe inside.

Little White Dress



This past weekend I returned from a great vacation in Barbados. if you've been reading my blog for a while now, you know Im half Bajan (Barbadian) and try to go to carnival there every year. What I didn't realize when I was returning home is that the east coast was experiencing these fall like temperatures. What's better than a LWD (Little White Dress) for summer though? I just added a bright kimono (to keep me warm), gold jewelry and fab shoes and you got a perfect outfit for date night.

Train tracks




 Hello Beautiful people. Happy Monday. Here's a very colorful outfit that I put together. With so much print going in the dress, I decided to keep everything else pretty simple.

Dalmatian





A Simple black and white dotted dress, In a great thin material to keep me cool in this heat. I cinched it at the waist with a vintage leather belt. Finished the look with a great pair of black heeled sandals. Hope you all are having a great week. Thanks for visiting.

Tropical Print

 This Past weekend I went Atlanta with the BF for basketball. It was so HOT down there so the less clothes the better. I opted for this Tropical Print dress that I scored on sale a H&M. It was the perfect little number to keep me nice and cool in the hot Atlanta sun.

Blonde






Boy do I have a lot to share about my birthday week and weekend. First off, I'd like to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday and made my special day one to remember. 
So for my birthday, my fabulous bf took me to New York for a day of pampering and fun. I got my nails done, facial and massage, went sight seeing and topped it off by going to a awesome revolving roof top restaurant. I will share some picture of that day with you later ( unless you follow me on Instagram @according2trish, where you already saw a few pics). 
Ok so, fast forward to this weekend. First, I dyed my hair blonde , which I am soooo loving. How do you all like my new look?
On sunday, I had a huge BBQ with lots of yummies that I can't wait to share with you in some new 
recipe posts. 
Finally, on to this outfit. I wore this out to a movie date with my bf. We went to see 'This is the end ' and though it was very funny, I didn't really appreciate some of the crude content. I wanted to be comfortable yet chic and this summer sweater did the perfect job. It also helped protect from the harsh A/C that they usual have in the theaters. I paired the sweater with some white jean and tan wedges that I got as a birthday gift.  (birthday haul video coming soon). So I think I've talked your ears off enough, thank you so much for stopping!!!

Multicolored Dress

 Thank God for the warm weather. I am certainly a summer baby (my birthday's coming up btw) and I am loving this warm weather. Light weight dresses like this will be my summer staple.
It's great when you find pieces on the off season, forget that you have them and when looking for something to wear, rediscover them in the back of your closet. This is exactly what happened with this dress. I bought is last fall at goodwill thinking it would be a great piece for the summer, then yesterday while digging through my closet I found it and was so proud of myself for that purchase. I love the bright colors and shapes on this dress. It reminds me of the seventies. I will forever think that the wrap dress is the ultimate feminine wear. It just hits a women's curves in all the right places.
Any way, I hope you all have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.

Denim Top and Laser Cuts

 Finally, finally, finally, the weather has broken and I can once again bare some skin. I am too excited for the summer. I have some cool trips planned not to mention, my birthday is coming up (yay!!). I hope you all are ready for all of the new happenings that are coming to the site this summer as well.

If I haven't mentioned it before, I LOVE THESE HEELS. First off, they're super cute and secondly they're surprisingly comfy. The last time I wore them was here, but this time I decide to let them be seen a bit more. I wore this outfit to the Capfabb's 2nd anniversary party which was a pretty cool event, where we got to watch the move "The Tents"and had a cute little cocktail party afterwards.

What do you all have planned for the upcoming long weekend? You can check out all my weekend happenings on instagram @according2trish

Vintage Peplum

Hey everyone. Hope you all had a wonderful mother's day weekend. Happy belated mother's day to  all of the mothers out there. I decided to take my awesome mom to brunch and we had such a great time. I will be posting a restaurant review for that so stay tuned.
So this is what I wore to brunch. This top is so vintage and so sexy and I love it! From the peplum to the low v neck, this top has all the elements to make any girl feel womanly. I paired it with a dark pair of jeans, some awesome cat eye shades and my fab new cut out sandals. All in all, this made for a very nice ensemble, if I say so myself. Have a wonderful week !!!

Something blue

I have had these blue trousers for almost a year now and have never worn them.  From the first moment I laid my eyes on them in the thrift store I new they had to be mine. They are a beautiful robin egg blue and feature a high waisted fit. My favorite thing about theses pants is that they fit me perfectly and weren't even tailored. The length (which is alway a problem for me) is perfect.  Here I paired the trouser with a thin cropped sweater but I'm actually trying to find a cute vintage bustier to pair it with. When I do, you all will be the first to see.

Cherry Lime Margarita





So tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo ( the 5th of May) and it is a big holiday in Mexico. Because Mexico is so close to the USA and a lot of people living in the USA are originally from Mexico, the holiday is also celebrated here. It's usually one big party and the main attractions are the drinks!! If you are having your own party tomorrow or just need an excuse to get Shwasted (Sh*t faced + Wasted ) you should really try this recipe I created for cherry lime Margaritas.

Everyday People DC


This past sunday I had the honor of attending my first Everyday People's brunch. The brunch was hosted by one of my favorite chef, chef Roble', who I unfortunately missed because he came after I left. The brunch was held at Smith's Commons on H St NE. There was a cool 90's vibe and the food was great. This was my first brunch so I didn't really know what to expect but next time I think I will be wear less clothes lol . Loved my outfit but not for this event.  I cannot wait to attend one of these brunches in NYC.

Coolin'



 I went to an alumni cookout this pass weekend and this is the outfit I rocked for the occasion. I was kind of kicking my self the whole time because it was cold!!! What is wrong with this weather. 50 degrees at the end of April??? Global warming is REAL, people. Any who, I just want for it to warm up so I can wear my spring attire and actually feel comfortable.
