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,

Lydia 

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!

Reyni

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.

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,
