Pas De Deux

8 Jun

I have my eye on two things at the moment, both so pretty and girly. The first is a pair of pale pink heels with an oversized bow by Jeffrey Campbell. I really, really like these! 

  
  
This is known as a bum” bag in Great Britain aka a fanny pack in America. I know that they might not be in style, but this one is so stylish. The sequins glam it up a notch. Plus, these bags are totally convenient. 

  
What’s on your most wanted list? Do tell! 

Blue Hue

14 Apr

When I saw this skirt I wanted it. I had been looking for a tulle skirt and missed out on the chance to buy one I really wanted, so I pounced on this one. 

 

This outfit shouts spring. I paired it with a long sleeve button down, classic pearl accessories, and a pair of soft blue pumps mixed with pops of color. 

 

 I felt like a girl circa 1955, lol.

ReFresh

25 Nov

I recently read in a magazine about a stylist who uses ReFresh dry shampoo between salon visits, and because she is Black, I was eager to see if it would work for me.

I sprayed it on thinking that it would saturate my hair, lol. No so. I probably sprayed too much because I wanted to have good results. But this initially left a powdery residue behind. I combed through it pretty well before wrapping it up.

The next day I was surprised that my normally oily hair wasn’t at all oily. My hair did feel heavy though and strangely clean.

I would only use this in a pinch because I noticed that it is very drying-which I’m assuming alcohol is a main ingredient. But then again, I might have sprayed too much.

I also picked up an old classic, Nozema, liquid soap which is supposed to moisture better than bar soap, and brownie bites vitamin. They taste like candy!

Posh in Plaid

15 Nov

I saw this plaid duster on Nasty Gal and liked it immediately. Obviously so did Rasheeda as her she is rocking it as you can see.

I thought of a couple of ways to wear it, the first being with holey jeans, a white tank top, neutral color boots, and gold jewelry to accent.

I also tried it on with a pair of leather shorts and black pumps. This look was a little more racy and not as casual as the first.

It would look cute as well with denim cutoffs and a pair of red peep toe cowgirl boots that I have, just disregard the huge run I have in my hose, lol.

Plaid Please

5 Nov

It’s that time of year when the air is crisp, the leaves are falling, hot chocolate is served, sweaters are plentiful, football is played, and the fabrics of fall are a major part of the autumn season.

A Pop of Pink

13 Jun

I found this blouse on the clearance rack at Kohl’s and I love it. The front is rather plain, but the back has a sheer split panel that is longer than the front.

I wore it with a black pencil skirt with an exposed back zipper and leather side panels. I added a statement necklace to jazz it up.

I ended the look with colorful neon pumps.

Orange Crush

3 Jun

So I was walking back from Starbucks minding my own business when I spotted this beauty in the window of Niche Boutique. I had no plans on shopping as I was on break and headed back to work. However, I couldn’t resist.

Niche only gets a few sizes in of a particular item and they sell fast and thus I decided to make my move.

I tried her on and was in love. The bright orange compliments my rich brown skin beautifully.

I’m going to pair it with turquoise accessories. I’m thinking a nice big, chunky statement necklace. To tone it down and make it more sophisticated, a pair of nude heels will round out the look.
