Happy Hump Day!

Smile! We’re almost through the work week! My message today is quite simple. Fringe is still fierce. The 70′s inspired trend made its way back into our fashion hearts a two years ago and it’s still as fabulous as ever. I fell in love with the trend back then and I still can’t get enough. It’s fun and flirty. Continue Reading »

Have you ever purchased a cute blouse or stylish jacket and had no idea when you’ll where it? What’s even worse, you had no earthly idea how you would style it. All you know is that you love it and you refuse to leave it. Is that you? It’s so me. Case in point, this longline chambray vest I scored during an amazing sale on Forever21.com back in January.

The color red is having a major moment in my closet right now. It has seriously pushed all my glorious blacks and neutrals to the back. In the last three months I’ve probably worn more red than I have in my entire adulthood. Maybe a teeny tiny stretch but you get my point. Red is “On and Popping!” It works with everything you already have in your closet. It pairs perfectly with nude pumps, black sandals, red heels, and even prints and patterns can shine against a red canvas. Continue Reading »

The lady  who refuses to wear anything other than Balmain or Louboutin. Are you her? Don’t be her and I’ll tell you why. You’re missing out on some really cool pieces and of course, you could really save a ton of money!  Designer doesn’t equal fashion forward or best dressed. It only says expensive. It doesn’t matter where it came from as long as you can style it. Throw a Gap tee in the mix. Add an H&M blazer, and for the absolute  win add a one-of-kind vintage find from the thrift store. After I noticed how much Solange, my sister in my head mixed high end and affordable pieces together I realized it’s the norm.

Happy Monday Sweeties!

I had a great weekend away from work celebrating my brother’s 30th birthday. I capped off my work hiatus by watching the 2016 BET Music Awards. There were certainly some magical moments, but nothing as hair raising and as the powerful as the acceptance speech Actor and Activist Jesse Williams delivered when he received the 2016 Humanitarian Award. People, I’m still gathering all of my edges that were snatched while listening to Williams so eloquently speak about the struggles of African Americans and and the need for change in America. He said everything we’ve all felt at one point or another. If you haven’t heard his acceptance speech for BET’s Humanitarian Award, check it out HERE . Beyoncé  and Kendrick Lamar’s opening performance also gave L-I-F-E! So overall a great ending to a busy, but fulfilled weekend. NOW to my all black look, that I absolutely love!

I’m officially 32 and looking better than ever! At one point in my life I regretted the idea of getting older, but now I welcome it. I love the growth I see in myself. My skin looks better, my mind is clear, and my soul is settled. It took me a while to get to place where I’m confident, full of self-love and finally removed so much self doubt . I’m happier with the woman I am today than I was at 22. Truth be told, I look better now than I did 10 years ago. Celebrating my new found self-awareness and my grown lady sexy, I decided to strut my stuff in a major way. This edgy look says, “you go girl.”
