Honestly, I don’t know much about this week’s Double Take feature except that sis is Stylish, and she’s a Stylist! She’s also in My Top 3 of Style Inspirations. Sabine (@thebstinger) is a Miami Blogger who serves on the looks from corporate chic, to country brunch, to city girl sophisticated sexy!
I relate to her because of the versatility of her style. My style is very similar to her style as it goes with my mood, the occasion, the location, the time of year. Also, I relate to her because she’s a dark “brown skin girl” who’s showing that our style doesn’t have to be limited. We can give you preppy and sexy… and you will deal!
So I’ve been holding in this little secret because I always knew that I wanted to start this Double Take series on my blog, where I show how I recreated looks from some of my favorite Instagram influencers. The secret is that theBstinger, was the inspiration behind one of my most liked Washington D.C. vacation looks. This was also the look that got me following her!

So, here’s how it all began… I was scrolling Instagram one day while lying in bed and I came across a post from @celrelaxedhair featuring this very look from @thebstinger! It was the glasses for Me! I had just bought me a pair of big framed square glasses from Zeelol.com and I felt like… this sister sees Me! “We see each other!” I immediately clicked on her IG handle, followed her and liked a bunch of her outfit post, but this one in particular I secretly saved to recreate! I had just about everything she had on in the picture… the big frames, the long coat, some jeans, a red crossbody bag. All I needed was some sneakers, and they came as a surprise gift just a few months later! I decided I was going to recreate this look and My trip to Washington D.C. presented the perfect opportunity.
I love Fashion and being Stylish, but to the core I’m really a Jeans and Shirt kind of girl. If you’re like Me, luckily for Us, jeans are made in all kinds of colours, styles and finishes. Therefore, you can wear them with heels, and a formal blouse or flats and a casual top.
A few weekends ago I pulled out one of My favourite pairs of jeans to wear to the movies. Its a distressed jeans I got from Forever 21 about 3 year ago, and yes it still fits! But the more I wash it, the more the distress parts rip… and I LOVE IT!
It was chilly that night, so I paired it with a plain lime green sweater top, also from Forever 21 and leopard pumps from Nine West. I accessorized with a tribal statement necklace I got from a Bahamian online boutique JaDazzles Clothing and Accessories. I love the look! It was comfortable, casual, but stylish at the same time.
A few weeks later while scrolling thru Instagram, I saw Forever 21 advertising distressed jeans and the Fashion Bomb Daily, also talking about distressed jeans again! I love it when I’m On Trend, In Style, and Fashion Forward!
So if you don’t have a pair already, be sure to get yourself some Distressed Jeans! And if you do have a pair, pull it out your closet and rock it because… ITS TRENDING!
