Hello darlings, Mildred here! Did you miss me?
If you’re new to the blog, allow me to re-introduce myself! I’m Krystle’s #RetroAlterEgo and ice cream companion! I am to Krystle as Sasha Fierce is to Beyoncé. I pop into town quite often to visit and whenever she takes a trip I’m sure to accompany her to get some sweet treat! It’s a tradition of ours to get ice cream every time we go on vacation and her recent trip to Panama was no exception.Read More
We're less than a week away from Memorial day and in my mind that's the beginning of Summer! I know it's not the official calendar date but family and friends usually get together on this weekend for activities that are synonymous with Summer. Grills are being dusted off right now and many are prepping for a weekend BBQ or picnic. Some may even venture to the beach if the weather permits (fingers crossed).
It's also that time of year where Cherries (one of my favorite American fruits) starts appearing on fruit stands and in supermarkets. If you're wondering why I call it an American fruit it's because they're different from the cherries we have in Guyana. The first time I tasted one was almost 11 years ago when I first moved to the US. We were at a family BBQ for Memorial day, I took one bite and couldn't get enough. It's one of the things I look forward to when Summer rolls around in NYC.
So as we approach the season, Mildred decided it would be fitting to share her cherry pinup beach look for the weekend. We're hoping the weather permits our first beach day of the season so we can wear this cute retro swimsuit again.Read More
A few weeks have passed since my Aruba trip and it's now starting to heat up in NYC! When we got back from Aruba, we were welcomed by hot summer-like weather which made me very happy. It felt as though I had brought the good weather back with me, however, a day later NYC reminded me of who she was. It got chilly again!
Yes folks, my space heater, furry bedroom slippers and coat were in full effect again and I was bummed. Now, a couple weeks later, we're starting to feel the heat and all I can do is think about the sun, sand and all the fun Mildred had getting ice-cream.Read More
It's going up to 80 degrees today in NYC and feels like we've skipped Spring and jumped right to Summer! I'm not complaining because I love the warm weather and any excuse to leave my coat where it belongs; in the closet! I plan on soaking up some sunshine today and if you're anywhere warm & sunny, I hope you do too.
It's the perfect day to step out and have a scoop or two or three because what's an 80 degree day without sweet treats?
This look is inspired by my all time favorite dessert and incorporates a few pieces I rocked last Spring.

Well folks, I'm slowly easing my way out of denial that Summer is over. The first official day of Fall is this Thursday and no amount of crying will change that. So what's a girl to do? The weather is already cooling down and as a last hurrah I decided to do an end of Summer look that works well for the slight chill in the air. Let's face it, Winter is the one I have quarrels with.
Join Mildred (my #RetroAlterEgo) and I on our last Summer Sixteen stroll in NYC decked out in a playful look inspired by Archie/Betty & Veronica comics with a 70's vibe.
Continue reading to see more of this playful retro meets modern style along with deets on my cool graphic tank & sunnies. I also made some pretty groovy friends and you don't want to miss that!Read More
Hey hey! Happy weekend!!! Mildred visited Coney Island a few weeks ago and found herself having a little dance party near the art walls. Here's a quick video I snuck of her prancing around to "Heart of Glass" by Blondie! That was not the actual song playing in the background but like Beyonce, #MildredAlwaysOnBeat (sometimes, lol).
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!Read More
