SHIRT DRESS ON REPLAY

HELLO FASHION LOVERS!!!!!
Today I'm hitting the replay button on this white shirt dress from HM. Shirt dresses a chic, classic, and super versatile.  The styling options are limitless.  When I first wore it I paired with color block sandals and a fedora. Today I belted the dress to give it more shape and I'm showing you that you don't have to put your booties away for the summer. Challenge yourself to find ways to rock your booties year round! Always remember there are no rules in fashion!
 

I hope you guys enjoyed the look.

SUMMER WEDDING OUTFIT IDEAS

 HELLO FASHION LOVERS!!!
 
I received a request from a follower wanting ideas of what to wear to a summer wedding. She stated she wanted something that would be stylish, so today I'm featuring 3 great stylish options that will definitely turn a few heads!
 
FANCY YOUR FLORALS 
 The first look is a gorgeous floral print maxi skirt! I styled this with a simple tube top and statement necklace.  If you're not comfortable with going strapless you can easily pair this skirt with a camisole or even a white button down shirt to give it a more classic look.
 
 
AMAZING MAXI
 The second look is a flirty high low maxi dress. I paired it with all gold and bronze accessories to bring out the neck detail on the dress.

 
JAZZ IT UP JUMPSUIT
The last look is this simple black jumpsuit! One can never go wrong  with wearing black to a wedding and this also gives you a different option if you're not watning to wear a dress. Here's an example of how the right accessories can change a simple item into a chic dressy look. I styled the jumpsuit with my jeweled suede stilettos, a silver clutch and my rhinestone head jewelry.
 
 
Hope you guys enjoyed the looks!

DIGGIN THE SKIN I'M IN


 




 
HELLO FASHION LOVERS!!!
 
This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing a Style/Image workshop with the Zeta Phi Beta Archonettes titled “Diggin the Skin I’m In”. The workshop focused on finding their own personal style and not feeling the pressure to blend in with everyone else. I let them know that they are all unique (being the only one of its kind;) and to be proud  to carry themselves in that manner. I brought in a model to show them stylish age appropriate options for a casual day, a formal event and for an event that’s not as formal but requires a dressier look.  I must say the workshop was a success and I look forward to doing more work with them and other organizations.

WELCOME TO THE 20/20 CLUB!

 
 






 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!
Today’s post is in celebration of turning the big 4-0! Yes, July 1st I turned 40! I’m so thankful to God to see another year and being in good health. I know we have our own thoughts of where we think we should be at different times in our life, but we have to remember it’s not our plan, it’s God’s plan and His timing.  I must say there are parts of my life that I definitely thought would be different at 40, but there are so many things that have happened in my 40 years of living I never even imagined.  One of them being a style blogger and having such an awesome amount of support from my followers. I’m truly looking forward to the future because I know I have favor over my life and my GREATER IS COMING!!!
Now let’s talk about this dress! I had it made late last year to attend the 2015 Grammys, but decided to wear something different and save it for another occasion. It’s so funny when I say “I’m going to save this for later”…. You’d think I have this banging social life and I’m always out somewhere and that is so not the case..lol! I’m such a home body. Anyway, back to the dress! I got this design idea from a Burberry dress I saw a couple seasons ago and I knew I had to have something like it. The Burberry dress was white but I knew that I would go for color, and I knew it would be a beautiful jewel tone. I found this gorgeous purple chiffon, took my idea to my favorite designer Silent Reigns, and she brought my vision to life.
This dress was a great way to usher in the 40’s!!!

RE-STYLE IT




 


Hello Fashion Lovers!!!!!
I was asked recently to put my spin on a bridesmaid dress taking it from the “aisle” to a girl’s night out or date night with that special someone. I’m sure we’ve all been there when that friend says all excitedly “I promise, I’m choosing dresses you can wear again” and you roll your eyes (in your head) and think yeah right… Well in this feature I am showing that it CAN be done and with style! Below you see the picture of the "Dessy" dress from Weddington Way’s chiffon bridesmaid dress collection. I simply re-styled this look by adding a great jeweled toned statement necklace and paired it with my sexy bronze python print stilettos. This funky iridescent clutch was the perfect addition to seamlessly marry all the colors together. Now I’m ready to have drinks and great conversation with my girls or better yet, a night out on the town with BAE:)
SIDE NOTE: I recently wore this dress in a wedding with different accessories, shoes, etc. It’s a convertible dress so you can get up to 7 looks in one dress. I took the dress to my seamstress and had him add the spilt to change it from being in the wedding party to being a wedding guest in your super sexy maxi dress.
Even though I didn’t get my dress from Weddington Way the "Dessy" dress you see below can be found  at Weddington Way’s chiffon bridesmaid dress collection. Their selections of bridal and party dresses are unique and very contemporary, so make sure you check them out!

Hope you guys enjoyed the look!

OPTIONS








Hello Fashion Lovers!!!!
 
Is it a shirt?.....Is it a dress?  Well this oversized top/dress definitely gives you options. Those of you that may not be comfortable with the length, you have the option to wear it as a top. If you're okay with showing a little leg you can wear it as both a top and dress!!! Either way this cutie is a great buy and a great way to maximize your wardrobe. I'm all about getting more bang for your buck!! Make sure you check out http://funkyflairboutique.com  for this top and other great finds!
 
Hope you guys enjoyed the look!
