The Fab Five Fashionsta’s: Use Your Power To Empower…

16C1B6DB-D348-4A14-9C3C-7757323C4E37

Hello friends, I know I haven’t really been on a consistent blog schedule. Like I have stated from previous post, your girls life is just all out of whack. I’m really pushing myself, and I hope to be on a more regularly schedule soon. Now, that we have all that out of the way, let’s talk about my latest collaboration with my wonderful fashionista sisters. It is truly amazing when you see a graphic t-shirt and realize it speaks volumes with five magical words. 

Use Your Power To Empower, think about that statement and ask yourself are you using your power to empower? I like to think in everything I do, professionally, and personally I’m doing so. We all have “Power” but it’s what we do with it that will make the difference. This collaboration with my girls embodies this statement to a T. The world has been consumed with social media, and for that reason as women we need to work together to uplift one another. I remember when I first started blogging, I reached out to several bloggers just asking for advise. In my mind, I thought they probably wouldn’t respond, because I had heard they talk about being supportive, but never really do. Boy was I wrong! 

Fast forward, not only did I get support, I’ve met some amazing women on this journey. Empowering each other comes in so many forms…From offering advice, being that listening ear, and encouraging one another. I have been so down, and here’s where the encouraging part comes in. My fashionista sisters not only gave me words of wisdom, they were present in the moment to offer support. I received text messages, ensuring that if I needed anything, they were there for me. So, when I think about that, I’m brought to tears, because these women really get me. Now, you tell me if this isn’t using your power to empower I don’t know what is. 

A New Day + Vital Voices pieces at Target showed the world that women can work together and inspire one another, one tee at a time. Are you doing your part to uplift your fellow sister? If you don’t know anything else know that “When Women Unite We Can’t Be Stopped”. So, use your power for good! Without further ado, I hope you enjoy how each one of us styled this tee. Because baby we nailed it!  

I styled my look, with a plaid blazer purchased last year from Rainbow, black skirt (old) from A’gaci, and my thigh high boots. I truly believe thigh high boots were designed to be worn with short skirts. What do you think? Don’t forget to check out more details of my fashionistas sisters looks. 

Until next time,

I was so feeling how Lydia styled her look, I had to find out more about that skirt though. Adding the plaid skirt to the look, definitely brought it home.

What more can I say about this look other than fabulous. Those boots elevated the entire look.

The Fab Five Fashionista’s with Must Have Closet Trend…

320DB487-929D-4532-94D4-876AA7954A8E

Hello friends, 

I want to start this post off by saying I’m so sorry for being MIA yet again. Life has really kicked your girl in the butt these days. Although things have slowly gotten better, I’m still a (WIP) work in progress. So, now that we have gotten that out of the way. Let’s get right into it. The Fab Five Fashionistas are back again with another collaboration. I know I say this every time we collab, but I tell you, this was my favorite collab. Because who doesn’t love leopard. 

When I was thinking what I may wear, so many thoughts came to mind. You see, I have more leopard in my closet than what I thought I had. I guess, I really love leopard prints. So, I decided on a leopard dress. Can you see why I went with this dress, isn’t she a beauty. I wanted to enhance the dress and wear a color that would make the entire look pop. I went with a bold red. Trust me, that was a hard decision. Pink was a close second. Animal prints are really popular this fall, and I’m so here for it. What’s your thoughts on the animal print craze? Now… enough about my outfit, let’s get into my fashionistas sisters.

Lydia

I love a well put together outfit, and this dress layered with a black top is right on point. Lydia is giving me fall vibes, with the black boots every woman should have in their closet. Lydia never disappoints in her style choices. She always inspires me and gives me great ideas. Keep doing your thang luv!

Mary

Mary brought sexy to an entire new level in her style choice. When I first saw her pictures, I thought it was the cutest jumpsuit, only to find out it was two pieces. Mary continues to amaze me on her style. She too decided to add a pop of red to her look, and I’m loving everything about it. Now this is the way to bring leopard print  to life! 

 

Ayesha

F6270348-15CA-4A6A-8C81-723823F5F281

Ayesha look was classic, and the type of outfit all women could incorporate into their work wear. I especially love how she layered the bold color sweater to complete her look, not to mention the matching boots. I never thought I would meet someone that shared my love of booties like Ayesha. Trust me when I say, her collection is fierce. My girl continues to knock it out the park. 

Reyni

0BC0363A-ACB7-4D0B-9B6D-54D05AA3A76C

Reyni knows how to work a pencil skirt. She decided to pair the skirt with a black top, and completed her look with the purple jacket. By the way that’s my favorite color, so I’ll be expecting in the mail soon. Now as long as I could remember I’ve always seen leopard paired with red or black. The fact that she brought the heat with purple, elevated hr entire look. Now this is the way you think outside the box, and bring home the perfect look. 

Here’s another look with leopard print that I love.

I hope you have enjoyed our take on the leopard print craze, and don’t forget to leave a comment on your thoughts on our looks.

When Shopping In Your Own Closet Goes Right…

22140497-ED39-4176-8CC2-BD7727F04047

Hello you all, I have really been going through some personal things, thus the reason for me being Mia. September is my favorite month, could it be because my birthday is this month. In exactly two days I will be celebrating my 51st birthday. I’m beyond excited about that. So I figured it would be a perfect time to drop in. For today’s post, I will be showing you how shopping in your own closet, can bring out a perfect look. 

I’ve had this black and white skater skirt for years, and this is my third time wearing it. When I found this tee with the words “NOPE” all over it some months back, I thought it would look perfect with my skater skirt. In keeping with my black and white theme, I added my black booties to the mix. I purchased these booties maybe three years back, and “YES” they are still in great condition. Could it be I don’t wear my shoes that often, but nonetheless I love it. Can you say comfort at its best… 

Although I loved my overall look, something was missing, so I added a bold red lip with my red tassel earrings. Finish the look with the cutest teal bow bag. The bag is the only thing new in this entire look. Can you believe this beauty came from Target? Let me tell you, the more I shop at Target, the more I’m impress with their fashions. I felt so liberating picking clothes that I already own to complete this look. Do you shop in your own closet? If not, you might surprise yourself with looks revamped. I couldn’t find a similar skirt or tee to share, so guess what I’m sharing some styles I do love. 

Until next time,

Fab Five Fashionistas: #AllTogetherNow The T-Shirt Edition!

EA9C7E44-66AF-4991-91E6-5117A5705B15

Well… The ladies are back again with another collaboration. This collaboration is a bit more personal for me, and I almost shed a tear (almost, don’t judge me) thinking about what it means to be #alltogethernow. Gabrielle Union set the bar really high with this campaign, because it was like she was speaking to us all. When I think of the all together now hashtag, it screams #thefabfivefashionistas, and what we represent. I would have never thought my love for New York and Company would bring me four new sisters. These women are more than fashionistas, they are supportive, and the type of women you want to be in your corner. Our bond has grown in so many ways. Keep in mind none of us have met in person, but hopefully January 2019 all that will change. So let’s get right into it.

Let’s talk about my look, the  T-shirt  could easily be dressed up or down. The one thing I loved the most about this tee was the tie front. I opted for a more casual look with my Gabrielle Union boyfriend jeans. They fit oh so perfect. When Gabrielle new line came out, I knew I had to have those jeans, trust me you need them in your life as well. I completed my look with the cutest patchwork bag I scored from Amazon, and my camel booties, which are no longer available. I would have to say, this tee will be on heavy repeat. How will I style it next time? Stay tuned!

Mary  brought fierceness with her look. She opted for the cutest black and white skirt, also from the Gabrielle Union line. Doesn’t this skirt look oh so amazing on her? Mary always bring the heat with her looks. Now, I know everyone knows I love red, and Mary completed her look with red booties. How could you not see fierceness with this look?

Ayesha my girl and twin in this collab. We both opted for the jeans with the t-shirt. You see with Ayesha she leveled up her look by adding these fabulous embroidered booties. She brought edge and chic together like no one but her could do. I loved how she completed her look with the cutest hat, because I love a great hat. Street style at its best!

Lydia brings us sexy with her entire look. Lydia was taking no prisoners with this look, as she opted to pair her t-shirt with the most flattering cobalt blue skirt also from Gabrielle Union line. Her look tells you she is a bad boss chic that means business. Lydia added the right amount of color to her look, and brought it all together with black heels, and black bag. Sexy done right!

Reyni brought classic with a twist. I love how she added the denim skirt with her tee. But: Can we pause for a minute, and just admire how freaking amazing this Eva Mendes skirt really is. Reyni added a soft touch of color to her look with the pink vest, and completed it with the cutest bag. Girl, I need that bag. This girl knows how to keep it classy like only she could.

When women support other women, we are beyond powerful. So find your tribe of women that will bring out the best in you as I have.

Eva Mendes Gaucho Jumpsuit…

A99ADD10-6DB7-48AA-B128-584B1217921C
Hello friends, I’m on vacation so can you hear the excitement in my voice. I got the opportunity to go home this past weekend, and of course I’m always excited about spending time with my family. I did a little gambling, wasn’t as successful as I would have like to, but I still had fun. However, I ate at my favorite restaurant Steamboat Bills, had cracklings and boudin. I’m telling you this is the best part about being home, eating all my favorites.  Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
This gorgeous Eva Mendes purple and black gaucho jumpsuit was just perfect for this petite girl. Bonus: it has pockets as well. The thing about being petite, most times alterations are needed with jumpsuits. I’m just ecstatic that this one didn’t need any. Instead of going with traditional black heels, I opted for purple heels. Trust me I was in purple heaven. Jumpsuits can easily be styled up or down. So, tell me how would you style your jumpsuit?

How can you go wrong in a Little White Dress…

5D45BB71-A388-4E05-AF36-B1C03CB55B5C

Hey friends, oh how I’ve missed you. I have not been feeling my best, and I’m sorry for going Mia. Well… I’m back and bringing you the prettiest white dress. For those who have been following me, you know I love off the shoulder anything, and I think half of my outfits represent that. Now let’s get right into this white dress. I believe every woman should own a LWD. They can be styled with endless possibilities.

The only tricky part about wearing white is, how do I stay clean at least until I get the shot. I got makeup on the dress, and had to think quick. No matter how I try and stay clean wearing white, something crazy always seem to happen. How do you keep your white outfits clean? This dress came in two other colors, and I purchased the mauve one too. I love all the details on this dress, from the ruffles to the Swiss dots. Are you a fan of white outfits?

Until next time,

Happy Monday, even though the day is almost over. Just stopping in for a quick minute to share this amazing romper I purchased at Forever 21. The thing I fell in love with the most was the colors in the romper. I love bold colors, and this romper definitely brought the business. Until next time!

The Fab Five Fashionista’s July 4th Edition…

Hello friends, can you believe we are in July already, time truly does fly when you’re having fun. Well… I’m back with my girls The Fab Five Fashionistas. We are showcasing our looks for July 4th. When I think about July 4th, the first thing I think about is fireworks. I’m like a little kid watching the fireworks, they are so amazing. The only downfall is, where I live fireworks are legal, and they will pop them all night. How can you not get excited about the fourth, from the delicious food, the pool parties, and all the cute fashions?

 

Enough of that, let’s get into the fashions. I had so many ideas of what I wanted to wear for this theme, but at the last minute, I changed my mind. So, I decided to keep it cute and comfy. As I was going through my closet, I spotted the cutest off the shoulder romper, that still had tags on it (purchased either last year, or the year before) and I knew it would be perfect for this theme. I paired the romper with my blue and white gingham mules, and can we say comfortable.
Now the only thing missing was the red, and the white. I opted to wear the cutest white hat I found on amazon fashions, and finished the look with red tassel earrings, and my favorite red bag. Ok… let me talk about my favorite red bag, she’s small, but so cute, and the shape of her makes her standout. I’m sorry to say my romper, and shoes are old, and no longer available online, so I will be sharing a few pieces I know you will love.

Until next time,

Mary is keeping it all the way classy in the Gabrielle Union blue and white stripped dress, and who doesn’t love stripes? I love how she added the pop of red with her sandals, and earrings. Mary was bringing the heat, with this year favorite bamboo bag. But, what I loved the most is the hat, it truly brought the entire look together. Looking great my friend, and so festive. You can see more of Mary’s look Here.

Lydia is giving me sexy, in her red cropped top. Side Note: I wish I was bold enough to wear cropped tops. I loved how she paired it with a blue and white polka dot skirt (polka dots are so fun), white sandals, and white earrings. Now, tell me how can you not get Fourth of July vibes from this look. Lydia is showing us all you can be sexy, but classy in her festive look. You can see more of Lydia’s look Here.

Ayesha look was cute and casual at its best, and I was so here for it. From the white top with the red and white gingham on the sleeve, to the stripped blue and white shorts, and those amazing gingham sandals. This look really spoke to my soul, as she showed us all being casual can look good, and she rocked it. You can see more of Ayesha look Here.

Reyni is knocking it out the park, in this bold polka dot red and white maxi dress. Reyni and I both live for a great maxi. And she definitely was ready for some fun in this flirty number. Reyni accessories brought the entire look together, do you see how stinky cute that bag is though. You can see more of Reyni look Here.

You see we all met on IG, but have really become friends. We all have similar fashions, and each one of our looks represent that. From gingham, to stripes, and lastly polka dots. I hope you all enjoyed our Fourth of July looks, and look forward to our next theme. If you have any suggestion for The Fab Five Fashionistas next theme, drop them in the comments.

Off the Shoulder with JustFab!

Hello friends, the time has come for me to say vacation over. Once again my plans were derailed by all the freaking rain we received here in Houston. So many things to do, but let’s be honest who likes traveling in the rain. Ok, enough with all that boring stuff. I’ve been a VIP member of JustFab for a while now. Normally I only buy shoes, because my past experience with clothing from them was a big fat miss. Fast forward years later, and I decided to give them another chance.

I ordered this beautiful floral off the shoulder dress, and I was so pleased. I especially love the overall fit of the dress, and all the details. It’s one of those dresses you can easily dress up or down. And you all know I love versatility. I opted to wear the most comfortable pair of heels in black, which also came from them. I’m here to tell you, give JustFab a try and I promise you will fall in love with more than shoes.

Until next time,

Yellow Lace Dress…

Hello all, I’m on yet another countdown mode to vacation. I will be spending that time in Louisiana, and doing some much needed spring cleaning in my house. Ok, enough of that let’s get to the real reason I’m here. I have always love the details of lace, and add in a bold color and I’m sold. This yellow lace dress had all the features this girl could ask for. I would have to say this piece is a must have for all women. I only wish they offered more colors. This lace dress offers a hint of sexy, with the off the shoulder look, and you know I’m here for it.

Now tell me… who can say “NO” to a great lace dress. When you think about lace, it’s one of those fashion pieces that will never go out of style. This dress can be dressed down with sneakers, or dressed up with heels. I opted to wear cobalt blue heels to add a little more color to the outfit, as if the yellow dress wasn’t enough. But, it’s something about cobalt and yellow that really makes me smile. How do you feel about lace dresses? On another note, I’m sad to say she is sold out online, but you may be able to find the dress in your local Target, yeah that’s right Target. However, I’m sharing another lace dress from Target that I know you will love.
