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.

Ayesha

The look Ayesha gave me was a bit edgy with a sporty vibe, and I was so here for it. I told y’all this girl boot game is FIRE!

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.

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,

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.

The Four Fashionista’s Spring Edition…

Happy Tuesday, I’m so excited about this post, because I’ve collaborated with three of my absolute favorite fashionistas. We all met on IG, and our love for Fashion brought us all together. None of us have actually met in person, but I feel a connection with them and look forward to many more collaborations with these beauties. Our theme was Spring dresses, and each lady nailed it.

Now, when I was thinking about the dress I wanted to showcase, I went with this super cute floral dress from SheIn. The dress hadn’t received any reviews yet (I was a little worried), but I knew it would be perfect for me, so I took a chance. When she arrived, I was left speechless, something that doesn’t happen often. THOSE SLEEVES THOUGH… Can you see all the details on her? So, you tell me what’s not to love! I added my black block heels, and to bring out one of the colors in the dress, I went with white tassel earrings. And to complete the look, I went with a black bag.

Mary Byrd aka Curlybyrdie

I’ve followed this beauty, almost as long as I’ve been on IG. She never disappoints with her fashions. I instantly felt a connection with her, maybe it’s our love for New York and Company, or that we both have curly in our name, but nonetheless I look forward to finally meeting her in person. Mary, is here to bring Polka dots to life… as polka dots are classic and never go out of style. And what girl doesn’t love polka dots. I especially adored the knot front on the dress, as it added a bit of sass. Mary completed her look with the cutest accessories, red sandals, gorgeous embroidered handbag and statement earrings. Looking fabulous my friend!

Reyni Brooms aka Curls and High Heels

This beauty has quickly become one of my favorites on IG. She and I also have a love for New York and Company. I adore her, as she is the real deal. She is the wife of a pastor, Mom of five and all around fabulous woman. She’s bringing me major Spring vibes with this Sunflower dress from Eva Mendes line at New York and Company. And… yes she is working that dress. She does sexy, but classy oh so well. You are wearing that dress beautiful!

Lydia aka Chicstreetstylemom

Lydia is the epitome of class. I fell in love with her fabulous style, and I knew we were destined to be friends. Lydia, cold shoulder maxi dress left me wanting more, as I’m obsessed with cold shoulder dresses. Now, how can you look at this dress and not have Spring vibes! The flowers on the dress brought it all together, don’t you think? I love how she kept her accessories with a neutral color. This fab find, was beyond gorgeous and most importantly screamed femininity. Looking stunning my friend!

Red and white Gingham Top…

7068BEEB-9D9D-429E-BCEF-84E24FDD05A1

Hello friends,
We need to talk! This gingham red top is a must have for Spring and Summer. Like I’ve shared in my previous post, you will see me in so much gingham print. This is one trend I am extremely excited about. What about you, is this a print you can see yourself wearing. When you think about gingham print, remember it was started in France. Now how can you deny the print now.

I purchased this top, drumroll please… from Target. I decided to pair it with my red pants. These red pants were super long, so guess what. I got the scissors and started cutting. I wasn’t finished just yet, I wanted a frayed hem look, so me and the tweezers became one. Finally, I completed the pants with sandpaper to add a little distressed look. I’m sure you can hear the excitement in my voice, when I say I was ecstatic with the outcome.

The only thing I needed now was shoes, and my bag. I completed the look with my cognac sandals, and cognac purse. I fell in love with this cognac bag, because of the shape of it. I had never ordered from this company before, but to my surprise the purse was EVERYTHING… Now this girl was ready for a fun filled day of shopping.

 

Until next time,
