MAGAZINE & BOOKS...

WHAT I WORE: 
Target: Sweater Dress & Tights 
Rue 21: Sweater and Shirt 
Calvin Klein: Jacket
Vintage: Hat 
Nine West: Booties 
Revlon: Lip & Make-up 

Hello Happy Wednesday! I had a excursion with my time at Barnes & Noble. Who doesn't like reading books or in my case fashion magazines! In this Fashion Industry for Bloggers, it's all about knowing all the latest fashion and trends, the best designers, networking, and fashion shows....you can only find that in Fashion Magazines. For me fashion magazines are like a book that I can't stop putting down...hahaha. When I get People Style Watch new issue in the mail, I really want to jump up and down of excitement. Instead,I run to my room browsing and looking at the magazine for hours until I have studied it. Truly, I love how they layout the different looks you can try. In my head, it allows me to start thinking how to create that same outfit, but wearing it my WAY!?!?!
Even though, I love reading fashion magazines, you can definitely get any sort of book in Barnes & Noble from cooking, mystery to even drama. Regardless of what book you like Knowledge is Power!

DREAM SERIES PART 1: WITH THIS RING?




Picture by Fatima Campbell 

WHAT I WORE: 
Forever 21: Dress, Top & Jacket 
H&M: Cap & Stocking 
Rue 21: Shoes 


Hello Happy Wednesday! My house was filled with people celebrating of your return. Something happened, did I say something that made everyone leave? I saw your friend and I knew you were near. I keep looking and looking for you, Where are you? I wanted to shout out at your name, cause I seriously wanted to find you! I just gave up and started to walk back into my house. 

As I looked back, you appeared, like you literally have been sitting on my driveway the whole time. I started to come closer you were ready to leave. 

I said to you, " Where are you going, your not going to say goodbye?" 

You grab me closer to you, he says "We're going to try this out you and me. Your going to talk to me and see where this goes". Of course I'm always trying to fight him, I said if I don't try, what are you going to do". He looks at me saying nothing and walks away.

Man, I thought this was real turns out this was my DREAM..Don't you hate that?...hahaha

My dreams are totally like a soap opera, I thought he was going to get on one knee and propose finally. You want something so bad to happen just never turns out that way. No, he just has to walk away like an end to a scene in a movie, crazy?!?!

 I hope you tune in next month for my real Dream Series Part 2! 

See you next time! 

P.S. Made this veil for my cap, DIY coming soon!

I admire Courtney Kerr, she has only been blogging for about 2 years now. I love how she took a risk to follow her dreams. She went for it and now she is someone that people want to know.

I would have to say, North Carolina. Yeah seems boring, I went there with my good gal friends for vacation. We did a punch of stuff to eating at  The Pit and Chatham Hill Winery.  I have to say, if your on a budget and you want to relax with friends than NC is the place to be. 

3. who's the most inspiring person you follow on instagram?

Yeah don't laugh, but I follow Chris Brown. He did a bad thing by hitting RiRi. In my opinion, people make mistake we have to forgive. Truly, he needs to heal from his broken past, I think that when he gets himself together his future will spread so far. I'm sorry but that dude can dance! I have seen him behind the scenes where he's just pushes himself to be the best and he's talented in his right.

My favorite artist of all time, Tupac and Micheal Jackson they had so much talent and their legacy lives on. You see some many artist trying to emulate their styles of rap and dance. 

6. if you could eat any food, all day/everyday, what would it be?

I'm going to have to say water, carrots, and hummus....hahaha. I can sit there eating it for lunch or even as a snack. It's so good and healthy for you!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY....

Hello Happy Valentines Day! I got the chance to collaborate with a great fashion Blogger Nikki Williams over at Dream In Neon. Go check out, Nikki Valentine's Day Date Night Ideas with your special someone at Dream in Neon.





WHAT I WORE: 
HelloFab: Heart Top 
H&M: Skirt & Clutch
Vintage: Hat
Wanted: Booties Sneakers 
Charm City Noir: Necklace
Target: Stockings
Revlon: Lip & Eye Make-up

I think Valentine's Day should be everyday to show the one's you love, how much they mean to us. We might think Valentine's Day should be just for our boyfriend/girlfriends, who says that you can't spend it with your closes friends.  If you would like to show your friends some love by taking these great Valentine's Day ideas for your gal/guy friends during the Day:

1. Take A Wine Tour- Spend a day at a local wine vineyard. There so much fun, last year I went with best gal friends to wine tour. They let you try different wines that they make. Some helpful tips in tasting wines, it consisted of 
1 pour wine 2. smell wine 3. swirl wine 4. half taste wine 5. you drink wine or just gobble it down..lol 
Wine tours are fun they allow you to bond while drinking some tasty wine. 

2. Take A Cooking Class: I know this can not be fun, if your not fond of cooking. It's great to come together with your best gal/guy friends try out a new recipe. I like experimenting with new recipes, it definitely adds to my recipe book in my head. It's good to try something new with your gal/guy friends,it totally creates memories that you talk about for many years to come. 

3.Have A SPA Day: Who loves to relax and talk all day about nothing...hahaha. Than you should definitely take a spa day with with your best gal/guy friends to enjoy some peace and relaxation for a day. What a like about spa's you can get the works with a massage, facial, or your nails done.

4. House Party or Going Out: Maybe you have to work all day for Valentine's Day. You should definitely meet-up at a nice bar or restaurant with your closes friends. This is great way not to spend alot of money on gifts just reserve a table to enjoy great food and each others company. 

5.Photo taking and Upload to Social Media: Spend a day in the city, neighborhood, museum, etc by taking photos with your closes friends to capture memories. Don't forget to upload photos on  Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Have fun this Valentines Day to whomever you love the most today! 

See you next time!

SMALL BOUTIGUE FASHION WEEK 1 of 2

Hello Happy Monday! Saturday I attended Small Boutique Fashion Week. Small Boutique is one of the top 5 most popular Fashion shows opened to the public. It was so worth going to the show to networking with other bloggers, designers, and small boutique owners. I was able to connect with a few people, if your fashion blogger you want to be successful you must network and network. This has allowed me some great opportunities with selling my brand. Well anyway enough about me, let's talk about the my fan favorites from the show: 


LAPOSHE



ROCHELLE CARINO





CLEOFÉ
RUNWAY COUTURE

NIPPY LAVERN red 


MARCELLA CO 



 This show was best highlight of my trip! Got me inspired after watching the garments down the runway, and being in an creative fashion environment.

Definitely check out my youtube small clip of designer Jagged Hanger.

VINTAGE AND VINTAGE....



WHAT I WORE: 
Via Gypset: Dress 
H&M: Hat & Vest 
Forever 21: Necklace 
Charm City Noir: Necklace 
Gojane: Pumps 
Revlon: Make-up, Lip & Nail Polish 

Hello Happy Wednesday! Vintage is been around for centuries and has become a distinctive style worn around the world. I love how vintage circle and A-line skirts just have this sophisticated polish vibe. Ultimately, vintage styles have developed especially tops and dresses with a 40s inspired style. 
Today, I'm wearing a Via Gypset vintage dress. Even though, it's covering me up it still fits me in the right places. Many consignment shops like Via Gypset have vintage pieces that are simply and on trend.  Looking for the perfect vintage pieces is not hard. Keep mind, not going for dresses with to much fabric unless the bodice can slender your frame.You can never go wrong with the top try picking silk tops with unique antique buttons. Either way you can look put together with any vintage pieces that fits your body type.

What's great about vintage consignment shops in DC, NY or LA you'll never find the same dress twice!...So you'll be the only one with that vintage piece...cool right?!?! Right now, vintage has become more acceptable to wear and shop for.

Check out Top 10 website the sell the best vintage inspired clothing:
