Question 1: So whens the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

Keelia/Tamra: We have been fashion lovers for most of our lives. Our mother and grandmother would take us on weekend shopping trips to the mall. We would literally stay all day: from the time the mall opened until the stores were closing. We enjoyed every moment and we quickly became professional shoppers and fashionistas.

Question 2: Do you have a signature STYLE?
As sisters and being very close in age, we have grown up dressing alike, but as we have gotten older we have both established our own personal style.

Keelia: My style tends to be more classic and with pops of trends. Think Grace Kelly meets Rihanna. Most of my wardrobe consists on skirts, dress and blazers. I love to pair a classic midi skirt with a trendy crop top. That is definitely my summer go to outfit.

Tamra: My style varies depending on my mood and how I am feeling at the moment. Like most women I go through periods of being super trendy but I also have times where I dress for comfort. So do I have a signature style? No not really because I feel style, like most things in life, is a journey.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?
Keelia/Tamra: We dont have a particular favorite designer, but we do have stores that we frequent on a regular basis like: Ann Taylor, Zara, Urban Outfitters, and ASOS.

Question 4: Who is your current STYLE crush?
Keelia/ Tamra: We love to keep up with other fashion bloggers. Currently, we are crushing on Wendy from Wendys Look Book and Tiffany Battle from The Werk Place.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?
Our blog outfits consists of things we actually wear each day and also styled outfits for particular occasions. Ninety-nine percent of the time we really do wear the outfits we post on the blog. Its a real life fashion journal.

Women’s fashion has ventured off into men’s wear. It is important to incorporate the ying and the yang factor when attempting this look. A meticulous merger of men’s tailoring and a woman’s sex appeal is the best way to create a stylish synergy. A simple suggestion: Men’s fit trousers and blazer feminized by a silk button-front blouse. This is a transitional look is made day time chic  when coupled with a pair of oxfords while also working well for a night on the town when heightened by 5″ heels. The day version of this look works well with long, lean figures. Less lengthy women should opt for the latter. Heels will give more petite women a more masculine height. Also, try a slim fit pant with a mens shirt. This works well for all body types. Literal accents can add style but choose wisely. There is a fine line between couture and costume!

Suggestions: untied bow tie, draped tie, classic hat, cuff links, handkerchief, or suspenders.
