Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

I have always loved fashion for as long as I can remember. I can remember as little girl playing my mother’s clothes and high heels and being mesmerized by the characters on Dynasty because they were so glamorous and fashionable.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?
When asked what my style is I always describe is a classy and chic sprinkled with edge. I feel that I’m versatile.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

If I had the finances to truly buy from any designers I wanted, I would definitely say Chanel. I think the designs embody my style aesthetic.

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?

OMG if I could I would raid Solange Knowles closet and Marjorie Harvey’s closet. They have such great fashion sense and they are not afraid to take risk and live fashionably outside of the box!

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

There is no rhyme or reason to what I pick. It really just depends on my mood. I’m a shoe lover so I can say the majority of my choices start with shoes first.

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

I honestly don’t have a favorite boutique. I literally shop everywhere! If I see clothes shoes or accessories I’m walking in…I don’t discriminate. I will say that I find lots of great affordable fashion forward pieces at H&M.

My sister Kay decided this year she wanted to celebrate her birthday in Houston, Texas. The death of Sandra Bland definitely overshadowed our trip , there were nights i couldnt even sleep. Knowing i was in the same state her death happened ….definitely bothered me 😢😢

We made of the most of our 4 day vacation. We saw family , ate good , shopped , and definitely relaxed. The humidity was crazy but it wasn’t that bad coming from this Vegas burning heat.

Dashiki Lovin’

da·shi·ki

dəˈSHēkē/

noun

a loose, brightly colored shirt or tunic, originally from West Africa.

The Dashiki was made popular in the western parts of the world by Oba (Yoruba word for king) Ofuntola Oseijeman Adelabu Adefunmi, who was born Walter Eugene in Detroit, Michigan, USA in 1928. He became interested in African Studies at the age of 16, and travelled to Haiti at the age of 20 in order to be exposed to African religion from indigenous Africans. Soon after, he returned to the U.S. and began a small scale manufacturing business which included African attire, most notably dashikis

Over the years Ive fallen in love with African inspired pieces. I think designers are really stepping up their game, when it comes to putting a modern touch to traditional African/ethnic clothing. I think Boxing Kittenwas one of the first designers to really bring ethnic inspired clothing to the mainstream. With celebrity clientele like Solange Knowles, Fergie, Beyonce & Chris Brown  just to mention a few.

I really admire the bright colors and bold prints that ethnic fabrics have. Easily transforming a regular outfit to something catchy, unforgettable and unique.

Im always eyeing and purchasing cultured pieces. The pop of color will do wonders to any ensemble. I have a trip to Houston coming up in a few weeks, i cant wait to style my pink dashiki and rock it with style and pride.

Favorite moment of the night was the Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Reunion took stage. Puffy , Faith Evans , The Lox , 112 and The Queen Bee Lil Kim had me so hyped when they hit the stage it took me back to my jr. High and high school days. Lil Kim’s entrance made the performance GRAND…her energy lit the stage on fire.

Lipstick Must Haves

As y’all can tell I’m obsessed with shades of nude and vampire lippies. Never was a big lipstick fan but over the years I’ve found my itch ( vamp lippie) . this list had more vamp lippies but that’s what I adore. I’ll buy all of them not even noticing or caring , if I have a color similar or the identical twin to the shade. I know I’m not the only one lol comment below you lipstick obsession shade

Summer Lookbook 2015

Summer : is the hottest of the four temperate, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.

This is the time year when shorts get shorter , heels get higher , and every weekend its a BBQ with a family and friends to enjoy the gorgeous weather. Below I’ve listed some of my favorite looks so you can be dressed to the gawds and turning heads this summer.
