Fall is the fashion industry’s New Year, so it’s only fitting that one would kick off the opening of a new, bold, beautiful and trendy boutique during this very fashionable time of year!
It’s Saturday, I arrive at the grand opening of Hello Gorgeous, located in Downtown, Rahway, NJ. I walk into fashion Heaven! The decor has a vintage appeal and you literally want to take the furniture home in addition to a few new pieces of clothing. The DJ is playing all the music I know and love, the patrons are browsing and pulling looks and making their way to the register to purchase. There’s so much going on and the energy inside is upbeat and very welcoming. I walk over to introduce myself to the owners Cristal and Chyreise who were kind enough to invite me to attend and blog about the event.
Everyone is so pleasant. As I made my way around the boutique to look at all the beautiful pieces on display; I take notice of how the owners are interacting with their clients. It’s so refreshing to see them engaging their clients and helping them select pieces to fit their fashion personalities! Some places you go to only want to sell you the item, but Cristal and Chyreise take their time to help the clients pick options that will work best for them. There’s a Henna Artist, drinks and desserts are flowing all around and everyone is in a great mood.
I love that the boutique is an intimate space. I love intimate settings and the feeling of personalized shopping is refreshing. Oftentimes, you go into these huge stores and there’s no one around to help you if needed and it’s so impersonal. The price point for the clothing and accessories are very reasonable and you won’t have to break the bank to look great!
Overall, this was an awesome experience and I am so glad that Cristal and Chyreise reached out to me to attend and blog for their special event! This is a boutique that is going to be a permanent fixture in Rahway and I hope that you all get the chance to experience the quality pieces, great prices and overall great service. If you are not in or near the area, you can always shop online! For more photos from the Hello Gorgeous Grand Opening, click here
Let me tell you about the designer of the dress I’m wearing…about two years ago, I stumbled upon an Instagram page of a beautiful blogger and designer by the name of KTR. I was immediately intrigued by her beauty and impeccable style! In love with her designs, I purchased my first custom piece (not this dress). The attention to detail and the femininity of her clothing is to die for! I love that she has an old Hollywood glamour feel to each and everything she designs. She always makes such exquisite clothing and I found myself coming back for more. I’ve had this dress for over one year, but never got the opportunity to wear it until now. This is a website that you MUST visit because this dress is just the tip of the iceberg! I love when I stumble upon greatness! Because she doesn’t make a truck load of the same thing, it almost feels like it’s exclusive, but like many fashionistas, I have purchased quite a few pieces from her collection and can’t wait to purchase more!
When you think of spring, you think of florals of course, but florals and motorcycle jackets? Who would have thought the two would go together so perfectly?! Floral prints are so feminine and girly and I love that they’re being presented in a much edgier way! This is a jacket that you will see me in more often than not. I have been holding on to it for some time and could not wait to wear it when the weather permitted. Although it’s quite windy, the sun was out and that was enough for me. Now that the weather is beginning to break, you will find me in much lighter outerwear. I absolutely hate heavy clothing.
Sometimes, you don’t need much to accessorize an outfit. The simplest things can make your look pop! Fringes are a favorite for me! For the past few seasons, fringes have been a staple in fashion and this season is no exception. I’ve been seeing fringes all over the place! On bags, shoes clothing and other accessories. Here are a few of my favorite pieces! I’ll be doing a whole post dedicated to how to sport your favorite looks with fringes added!
Today was the most anticipated day of the year for H&M! Alexander Wang launched his line today and it was literally ALL THE RAGE! There are many great pieces to choose from, but I did not partake in purchasing from this years collaboration simply because I did not want to stand on lines, pushing and shoving to get the pieces I wanted and what I wanted was literally sold out in a matter of minutes online! I heard there were ladies fighting and carrying on and that wasn’t something I wanted to do! I love A. Wang and I would have liked to have gotten some pieces, but my safety is more important. For the fashionistas that were able to get in and get what you wanted, I applaud you! I’d love to see what you all do with your selections!
Everyone hates going to the DMV right? Not me! What I do hate is rainy days if I have to go out. I love being under the covers and relaxing, but that wasn’t going to happen since I had a few errands to run. I wanted to test out my Target for Altuzarra ankle booties. They’re super comfortable and chic. I hope your week has been going smoothly! XOXO Kimsue 💙
Blazers hold a special place in my heart…I know, I know, it’s not quite fall, but it was raining today (any excuse to put on a blazer). I didn’t feel like being exposed, so the perfect piece of clothing to cover up is a blazer! You’ve got to pay attention to detail when wearing prints such as leopard, as they can be overwhelming and can sometimes be worn inappropriately. Everyone knows I love leopard printed pieces and mixing patterns and prints. Leopard is ultimate neutral and can be paired with other prints and solids. If done right, you can really create a bold, groundbreaking look (I will be doing a post on mixing prints soon).decided to pair it with some basic blue skinny jeans and a tank top since it was a casual Friday! I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoy the week ahead! Thanks for stopping by! XOXO
Blazer: Zara ( old )

It was such a beautiful day today! Spring is here and I’m so excited for all the colorful looks that will be displayed. Its been a few days since I’ve been out , but I decided to take in some of the nice weather. I love camouflage and decided that today I’d add a pop of color. Hope you all enjoy!
