H&M Mentorship

The Haute Pursuit Final Image

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be jointly working with H&M and Bloglovin’ to select one of my readers for the ultimate mentorship with me and The Haute Pursuit. Having mined my way through the blogosphere as an Influencer, Creative and now Business woman, I feel it is due time to give back! So that’s why I am so thrilled to be involved in this project, but I won’t make it that easy!

THP x Beth Richards




CaraRashie After much anticipation, we are finally launching the THP x Beth Richards Capsule collection! Over the years, Beth’s suits have become one of the main swim/active-wear staples in my closet. All of these pieces are based off cuts that have become signatures of my style: crop tops, high necks, & mesh. Aesthetics, utility, and amazing fits all in one – make sure to check them out below!

Midday in Paris




Long time no see, readers. We’re still waiting on our new site, which is the reason for some of the radio silence of late – plus I’ve been traveling like a nutter! Here is one of my Paris Fashion week outfits from February earlier this year. I wore Vega Wang, a very talented Chinese designer from Beijing and on my head: gear from Onar studios. Le Louvre, no matter how familiar it seems always reveals new and exciting corridors and corners to shoot in. Can’t wait to be back this summer!

La Minimaliste




THPSHOPLaMinimalisteCollection2La Minimaliste Collection has launched! We shot this 2 weeks ago in NYC and opted for a more pared down, minimal approach – no studio lights, just natural light. I think this is our most wearable line-up yet! Barbell shapes revisited, straight – edged ‘bar’ earrings, & yes a new necklace! Easy, No Fuss, but really eye fetching. Head over to to see the rest!

New Retro

This last weekend in NYC where yes, it started snowing. Don’t let these pictures fool you, it was very, very cold. That aside, I was obviously in the mood to literally transition into spring. It’s no secret anymore that I am in a full retro-funk-grade which entails wearing wide legged flares at any/all opportunities with heels (here I am wearing my go-to’s the ‘Nudist’ Stewart Weitzman heel). I have dubbed this the 70’s working woman uniform…major Mary-Tyler-Moore-Show vibes dontcha think?
