Outfit: Silk Denim Top, White Shorts, Gladiator Heels

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

It's still quite toasty in my area so I am still wearing bright colors, short shorts, sleeveless tops......and white! I don't have to tell you guys that the whole 'no white after Labor Day' is a bunch of bull. Be conscience of the season, but don't limit yourselves. And more importantly, don't wear something because someone else sets "rules" for you. Dress for your weather, your body type, and your love of fashion and you will be fine.


White shorts and sleeveless top, for steamy weather....yes please!

I love this clutch.....polka dots rule!
 
Sidebar: I know I just posted pics with this top a 2 weeks ago.....but I promise I wore both looks about 6 weeks apart.....#truestory

Outfit: White, Black, and Leopard

Greetings Fashionistas,

It's Friday folks.....and I'm in Las Vegas!!!!! Sooooo, as I'm sure you've deduced, this post was scheduled so I wouldn't be interrupted from my controlled debauchery, lol. Right now, I'm probably just getting in from a night out with the bf. I intend to make these few days feel like a week long vacay! Visit my Instagram for real time updates.



This blazer is way too big to be worn in the traditional way. However, it's too short for me to wear it as a dress :-( So I decided I'd wear it as a top instead. It feels too good to give away before I use it a few times ;-)
 
 
 

Yes.....my calves are on POINT!!!! Excuse me while I pat my self on the back.....hard work does pay off.......eventually, lol.
 
 
 


Although I'm wearing "printed heels".....I feel as if I'm wearing 'neutrals'. I mean, we've all agreed that leopard is a neutral right????

Outfit: Midi Summer Dress and Tailored Blazer


Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Sunday at church, the message focused on domestic violence. The sermon was taken from 2 Samuel 13:1-20 and titled "When a Fool's Love Hurts". With all the attention surrounding the NFL and the disturbing Ray Rice case, the subject of domestic violence needed to be addressed. It's not discriminatory act, domestic violence affects all races, both genders, all ages, and all creeds. We have to educate and empower ourselves against abuse. The bible tells us that only fools commit domestic violence. It is not the will of God. Domestic abuse is a learned behavior. Additionally, domestic abusers don't listen to rationale because they're self-serving. Lastly, domestic abusers live on lust. They don't understand love. Love should never be expressed violently or in anger. If you or someone you know is dealing with domestic violence, please see help.


I wore this sundress to service......but of course I covered up the halter style with a chic blazer as you will see below.





A dress with pockets......the best thing EVER!!!!!
 
 


The addition of the blazer took the look to another level....more sophisticated and definitely more church friendly ;-)

Outfit: Silk Denim Tank and Trousers

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I have quick post to share with you all. This natural hair journey is a wee bit rough for me, lol. I just threw my hair into badly done frohawk, cried a little, then grabbed something quick to go run my errands last weekend. And ladies and gents....this basically occurs daily! What a vicious cycle I'm in, lol.

To pull this look together.....I went heavy with the accessory additions. I had to go with excessive to distract from my poorly tailored trousers! Okay, okay......they haven't been to the seamstress at all!!!! Shame on me!
 




Wait.....I wasn't ready, lol.
 
Who's ready to start the official paperwork that cements leopards relabeling as a 'neutral'. I love leopard print!!!!
