Sleeveless

201803141539403540
My goal is to always do it the way you've never seen it done. Creativity is my strongest suit and I think I play that hand so well. This look forced me to play my wild card. After trying on this two piece set from Eloquii.mmediatedly fell in love this two piece set from Eloquii. The print in the front and solid in the back- ugh ever so sweet. Not taking the print all the way through prevented print overload syndrome. Of course, I had to fire up this medium sound (Click Here) with my red Zara sock booties and Asos red beret, swanky right? So here we have it, great color combo, awesome fit, but not enough. I checked...

Atomic Color Blocking

IMG_7887
Atomic Blonde portrays an elite spy who has a killer punch and a dangerous wardrobe, that consist of black and white color blocking and a pair of red Christian Dior pumps, (which she uses to kill her adversary) for the perfect juxtaposition. In my mind she would totally have worn this dress. Since she wasn't able to, I took it off her hands and channeled my Atomic Blonde - okay okay- I'm a ginger blonde. Neva-the less, I felt so posh in this dress. I wanted to be sure I translated posh with much clarity when I styled this look. My first thought, I knew I needed to pull out my ever so lavish BCBG shoes. These shoes simply allowed...

Brim Meets the Neck

IMG_7934
So, this look is fairly basic. There are no abstract prints, rocking fringe or over accessorized novelties. What makes this look a magnet of interest is the analogous color pallet (colors directly beside each other on the color wheel. In this case mine are blue, purple and fuchsia), extremely chic frame work and how the brim meets the hat. Now, lets talk mysterious, shall we? Often times people feel one must have all the bells and whistles to emerge mystic. If that is you, allow me to redirect your thinking. Structure and fabric exaggerations are chosen’s as it relates to a more discrete description of mysterious. Alexander McQueen mastered this art. In the beginning of his career his textiles were extremely...

Curvy Wakanda

IMG_7731
Although this look does not echo through the lands as African and neither does it mapquest me to my long-lost tribe, you can not deny its glory or boldness, like the people of the safari and my long-lost tribe. This ensemble screams black (in every form of its meaning), regal, profound, powerful and rich. It was the perfect fit for my welcoming to Wakanda. So, I decided to pay homage to histories first, all-black Marvel, with a curvy slayish dinner and movie meet & greet. I wanted to hone in on and captivate a rare experience. Undeniably, Black Panther, was a long overdue production- not just for the diaspora, but for the world. February 16th Black Panther made history to...

Bad and Boujee

Is it me or can I speak for all of us when I say “I am all kinds of over the winter season” spring, where are you dear? On a brighter side, hibernation hasn’t exactly been torture, it most certainly has given me time to stack up on some spring 2017 inspired pieces. All I can say is this spring seems to be a bit bored with the basic waist.  Waistlines are making some boisterous statements this year and I am here for all of it! From the dainty high waist wrap around bows, utilitarian paper bag waist, to the killer sharp fold over waists, will literally have you never looking at a zipper and button again, and lets not...

Stylitude

Since you must know all my business, I guess I'll share. I've been running a few errands, meeting a fellow blogger for brunch, then I'm headed to a Bulls basketball game for a first date. I figured this cute little number was fitting to wear for the whole day. If you hadn't noticed I love hats but its something about a skirt and hat. It is the perfect sporty-feminine combo, which is totally trending this Spring and Summer. A hat and skirt never seems to fail when you're going for a fun energetic but sexy look. The bad girl leather softened by the lime green zipper jacket will have someone eyeing you at every turn, gambling whether you're getting in...

MAC Cosmetics Skincare Regimen

WIN_20170223_14_20_16_Pro
Hey guys! Let me guess, you want the deets from my very first YouTube video Concocting MAC Cosmetics Skincare for Dry Skin! Perfect, I'm glad you're here! If you read carefully this should be a breeze. Now lets hydrate away dry skin! DID YOU KNOW dry skin is the culprit for wrinkles and aging? It is a known fact that oily skin ages slower than dry skin. Free radicals are environmental pollutants (one definition) that attack the skin. Dry skin is most vulnerable to free radical attacks. Dry skin lacks oil and antioxidants as its protective barrier, allowing free radicals to stick to the skin. Oily skin creates a oil coating, hence making it easier to keep the skin balanced and...
