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.

This look had me at the pants. Reyni showed us how taking a classic pair of pants can really bring a statement tee to life.

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.

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.

Serving Spring Looks with the Eva Mendes Collection…

4C2B66FD-2ACD-47A2-9FA5-7CAECF65B29D

As women the world has a tendency to believe we are all in competition with one another. Well… I’m here to tell you these women better known as The Fab Five Fashionistas have become more than just social medial friends, we are more like sisters. We realize that working together we are unstoppable. The one thing that I can say is we love Eva Mendes and when her new collection came out, it was a no brainer what our next collaboration would be.

Eva Mendes new collection brought such joy to my heart 💜. Purple is my favorite color, and when I saw all the pieces that had purple in them, I knew I had to have them all. Trust… when these new collections come out, it’s not always good for my bank account. Do you shop at New York and Company as much as we do, if so leave me a comment. I always like to meet others that love the brand as much as we do. With that being said, I present my sisters.

For my look, I opted for the Eva Mendes Sheath Dress, and let me tell you this dress had me feeling all types of “SEXY”. Hugging in all the right areas. The look I was going for was all things purple. I completed my look with my purple necklace, purchased at New York and Company years ago, deep purple heels, purple earrings, and went with a neutral color bag. I wanted the emphasis to be on the dress, and I think I accomplished that.

Let’s talk about Lydia  “TheChicToStreetStyleMom” when I tell you this outfit looked amazing on her. She was made to wear this bold jacqui yellow skirt. I loved everything about her look. Now you know my love for OTS tops, and this white one definitely brought this look all the way together, just look at the ruffles. The belt was a nice touch. She completed her look with the most adorable heels.

Mary “CurlyByrdie”
If anyone could pull off this skirt it would be Mary. Her entire look brought sexiness, but with class. I’m always so impressed with Mary choices in fashion. I love the orange stripes in the skirt, but how about this belt though. She also went with the ruffle white top. The look was hands down perfect, can you see how she used the belt to accent the orange in the skirt, and finished the look with her pink heels.

Ayesha “Emaneescloset.com
Ayesha lilac shirt dress was so feminine, and she worked it for everyone to see. She showed us all how to wear a shirt dress, and make it your own. I love how she added the multi color snack print belt, and heels to match. The fun thing about Ayesha, she’s not afraid to push the envelope in her fashions. I sometime wish I could be so creative with my fashions. Not to mention we both decided to wear purple.

Reyni “CurlsandHighHeels”
I’m all about lace, and Reyni really worked this lace and crochet outfit. When I first saw the outfit online, I really wanted it. I just don’t think I would have been able to pull it off quite like Reyni did. I have truly become a fan of color, and this green number was no exception. This outfit was made with Reyni in mind. The color went well with her skin tone. And she completed her look with the prettiest rose gold heels. Now that’s how you do it!

 

Until next time,

Gabrielle Union Inspired Look… Featuring The Five Fashionistas

C9A6E4F3-F6AA-4340-847E-64BA1D001DBB

 

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I come to you with another collaboration with my  beautiful friends. We each are sharing our styles from the new Gabrielle Union collection exclusively sold at New York and Company. I would be lying if I didn’t say this collab was awesome! Each one of these ladies holds a very special place in my heart. Let’s talk true Girl Boss… and I’m so here for it. Remember when we work together, we can’t be stopped. #alltogethernow

Well, let’s talk about what I’m wearing. When I initially saw the dress in the store, I was blown away. The only downfall would be, having to get it altered, as they didn’t have petite. So, I rushed home and ordered her online.
What more can I say, the blue and white stripes were giving me bold and sexy. I love the fit of the dress, very flattering. I knew pairing it with my red tassel earrings, and red purse was the only way to go. Red makes everything POP… To complete my look, I went with the “IT” bag of the season. It’s a dupe for the Cult Gaia bag Here.

I purchased mine Here

I’m so bummed, that this dress is sold out online, however visit your nearest New York and Company and she might be waiting for you.

Shoes: Old from A’gaci, I’m linking a similar style I love.

CURLYBYRDIE
While many of you may already know how much I love her style, she makes anything look GREAT. Mary, came in with a bang in this gorgeous white sheath dress. This dress was designed with Mary in mind, as the fit was perfect. I love how she paired the rose gold accessories to complete the look. I so need those booties. Check out more of Mary’s look here.

CURLSANDHIGHHEELS
Reyni is bringing this green shirt dress to life as we speak. I love her fun personality and genuine love for New York and Company. The color of the dress looks absolutely phenomenal on her. She is serving “FIERCE” baby! I love how she paired the brown sandals and straw bag to the look. The icing on the cake was the belt with the floral print. Visit Reyni Blog here.

Lydia, Style is always on point. She can truly wear anything and look great. The kimono and shorts were no exception. The shorts with the BOLD pink color were the perfect addition to add with the kimono. I love how she took one of the colors in the kimono, and made it all come together. Now, let’s talk about mixing prints, she nailed it! Lydia, has made me think twice about how to mix prints, as she did it so effortlessly. She completed her look with a staple black heel, and black bag. Check out more of Lydia’s look here.

I just started following Ayesha, and I asked myself where have I been. Her style is everything. Well… nonetheless I’m glad to be in such great company. She is such a sweet person, and truly believes in girl power. I look forward to getting to know her better, as we share our love for New York and Company. Jumpsuits are so in right now, and Ayesha made me want to go out and buy this one. The coral color was so vibrant! She completed her look, with the cutest espadrilles, and blue straw bag.
