LBD Maxi with a Touch of Snakeskin

Hey Beauties...... I'm so glad that the weekend is finally here. Geesh. Talk about TGIF. I plan on doing absolutely nothing this weekend. I stepped out for lunch with the hubs recently and wanted to rock something classic and comfy so what better than an LBD maxi right? Instead of opting for the classic Florida staple----flat sandals, I dressed up the look a little with a pair of strappy heels.OMG....I found this dress on Amazon and practically bought it in every single color and I do mean every single. You won't believe how much the dress is? It was an absolute steal.
One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress. - Karl Lagerfeld

Beauty Buzz | Liquid Lipsticks by Anastasia

In honor of National Lipstick Day, I'm sharing one of my favorite makeup brands of late. Anastasia Beverly Hills----a brand founded by Anastasia Soare, beauty expert and salon owner whose roster of celebrity clientele includes Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Naomi Campbell, Jada Pinkett Smith and countless others. The brand also carries other beauty products like contouring essentials, eyeshadows and lipsticks. But her line of liquid lipsticks are some of my favorites since being introduced to them by an amazing local makeup artist in my area, Glam Jackie. I've been in love with them ever since. They apply in liquid form, but dries in matte form. Highly pigmented and compliments darker skin tones quite well. You can find them at your local Macy's, Sephora and online here and here.
Until next time......Peace, Love & Blessings!

W Magazine Fall Fashion | 2015

Have you seen the 2015 fall fashion spread for W Magazine? Quite unexpected and unconventional---right? Models Ajak Deng, Aya Jones, Binx Walton, Amilna Estevao, Anais Mali, and Tami Williams all posted for the fall editorial issue in rare and natural form. The models touted their beautiful coiled and natural tresses while clothed in luxury threads curated by fashion Stylist Edward Enninful---W Magazine's fashion and style Director. Altuzarra, ChloĆ©, 
Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli, Louis Vuitton,  Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo were some of the luxury designer brands showcased in the spread. I am totally here for it. Kudos to the folks over at W Mag for embracing a concept of diversity in beauty and fashion---a place where cultural diversification often seems truant. 
Until next time.....Peace, Love & Blessings!

Fab Find | Modern Day Mogul

I've always said that the key to personalizing a look is with the right accessories. Two people can wear the exact same outfit but the person who accessorizes the best, ultimately steals the look. When we think about accessories, sometimes we tend to forget about unconventional options that may fall outside of the norm. Like head pieces. Neck pieces. And a slew of other accessory items that can take a look from drab to fab instantly. Today, I share a fabulous site that produces a vast variety of fabulous bow ties. I've purchased from the site in the past and in fact, I own two of their pieces----Gold N Brown and Reflections.
If you're wondering how to wear one of these statement neck pieces, no worries. So...remember that white button down---the staple item I've begged that you add to your wardrobe for as long as you've been reading this blog (yeah, that one)? Here's the perfect opportunity to pull it out. Pair one of these fab bow ties with that white button down, a fabulous pair of distressed jeans, a pair of suspenders, a pair of fabulous pointed-toe pumps, your favorite clutch and a kick ass pair of red lips and you're set. You can check out these bow ties and more over at Modern Day Mogul here.
