Hello everyone, I couldn’t wait to share this super chic little black romper. From the V-neck to the open sleeve, what’s not to love… This romper can be taken from the office, to a night out on the town. I decided to go with a casual look, but adding the belt and red heels really turned this cute little number up a notch. Let me tell you, I own several rompers, but this is by far the most comfortable one.
When you find what works for you and they have it in other prints or colors, you buy it (I know don’t judge me). Trust me you will love the palm print one just as much as I do too (btw on sale for $29). New York and Company just seem to get it right, that’s why I can say this is my favorite store. I can’t remember the last time I payed full price for anything there. This is a store that offers well made pieces for deals you can’t pass up. I’m here to tell you, if you have never shopped there, you’re really missing out.
~Hugs and Kisses~
Shoes: old Make me chic
Hello all! This pretty cobalt blue pleated dress was a deal I couldn’t pass up. As I walked, the dress just flowed with ease. Can you believe I paid under $20 for this gorgeous dress! Remember, when I said fashion is coming out of your comfort zone. That’s exactly what I meant, take a chance on something you wouldn’t normally purchase. As I looked around in my closet, I only own one other pleated dress and it’s also from Stage. This dress is feminine and the color is great for Summer, and it also comes in black. Yes, I purchased that one as well. Until next time.

Hello all, I know it’s been it a minute since my last post. Well I’m back! So I wanted to stop in to share this gorgeous cobalt blue OTS ( off the shoulder) dress.
If you have never taken a trip to Burlington, you have no idea what you’re missing. I always seem to find the cutest dresses under $20. Yeah, that’s right how can you beat that…
Since the color of the dress was so vibrant, I opted for my leopard sandals to give the look a bit of an edge. Now how can you go wrong with leopard, makes me feel feisty! The colors in my jewelry really worked well with the overall look (pieces I purchased years ago). To finish off the look I went with a neutral bag, and I was now ready for dinner.

Most of the items I have on are no longer available, so I linked a few similar items that I either own or ones I think you will like.

I had the pleasure of attending the Dare 2 Aspire Women’s Conference June 25th, 2017 at Hotel Derek. I thought this was a perfect opportunity for me to network, and gain some valuable knowledge. I had no idea that I would walk away from the conference, feeling so inspired. The honorees were phenomenal, and each one story touched me. Tosi Ufodike is the woman behind this amazing conference. This was the first time the conference was held in Houston, Texas. Tosi is a bestselling author, speaker, and creator behind the first vegan line of hair products for naturals, HairYum. The primary purpose of the conference is to encourage women and Mothers to start or grow their own business. I was ecstatic Tosi decided on our great city this year.
When you think of girl bosses, you want to remember these women. LaTavia Roberson was the keynote speaker and her story rocked my soul. LaTavia Roberson, Orginal member of Destiny’s Child. Brittany King is the owner of The Career Collective. Denise Wedderburn, Houston makeup artist. Miss Mykie is a Recording artist and TV personality. Monique Hobbs Brand strategist and business manager. Erin Cheeks owner of MsIndependent & Events Consultant. Kia Renee is the host of The Sessions Talk Show. Kecia Johnson, author and HIV/AIDS Educator. Each one in their own right is the epitome of what class and grace is. Not a dry eye insight, that’s how real and personal each story was. I asked LaTavia what does Dare 2 Aspire means to her and here is her response.
As I sat in my seat hearing all these stories, it really showed me what God has for you will be for you. These women may have face difficulties in their lives, but through it all they never lost their faith. When women come together great things can happen. That’s exactly how I felt seeing the love each one of these women had for one another. It was a genuine feeling, so I encourage each and every one of you, if you have the opportunity to attend the conference next year, please do. When was the last time you supported your fellow girl boss? I had to look at myself in the mirror when I asked myself that, because prior to the event, I hadn’t done a good job of that.
Let’s talk vendors. With so many to choose from, what was a girl to do. From the beautiful jewelry by Adriane R. Wiltse. The henna tattoo provided by Houston Mobile Henna. The cake, that left my mouth wanting more by My Dainty Cakes. Eleven22 Boutique, who had the cutest sunglasses that I just had to have. I not only walked away with product, I walked away with the most important thing. When women come together we can’t be stopped.
