More Than A Conqueror

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Romans 8:37

I stumbled upon this passage right when I needed it the most. As many of you know my godmother passed last month and it did take me by storm. When I returned home from her funeral my husband had the house clean bed made.. and this devotional sitting on my night stand by my side of the bed. I looked at it and smiled.. but looked closer and this scripture was right on the front cover. I knew this would be our spiritual premise for the month of February.

I have faced many challenges and obstacles in my life and boy do I know there’s more to come. I just try to position myself where I am prepared for whatever is to come. I try to learn from what I have already gone through and apply it to the next situation.

So what is a conqueror? What does this word mean to you and how are you allowing God to conqueror your life?

  • To be honest I didn’t know what it meant to conqueror anything. I had never thought about my struggles as accomplishments and conquering them. Whenever a problem or a tasks arise something inside of me would kick into go mode, and to find a solution and execute! Well that all changed as I grew older, wiser and closer to God.
  • Conquering to me means achieving
  • I allow God to conqueror my life by listening to him daily. I have found that I have to be spiritually fed in order to maneuver through life. Daily I must subject myself to him. Because lord knows if I operate in myself I can do some serious damage, make unnecessary mistake etc.

Let’s conqueror this month divas! Be bold, be you and say true!

Mali Music- More Than A Conqueror is the perfect song to meditate to this month. I once praised danced too this song and let’s just say.. Amen! To this day it still gives me that energy that I need when feeling low!

Eva has classic pieces that are so easy to mix and match from season to season. I had so much fun collaborating with my girls are we each love Eva. We all chose different styles whether they are old or new, that is the joy of mixing and matching clothes.

For my look I chose a classic shirt dress….as if I need a another dress in my closet.. But you can’t go wrong with a simple cotton shirt dress. What I love most is that it’s lightweight, it buttons midway and has this amazing detail on the back.

I jazzed this lovely lilac shirt dress with a multi colored snake print belt and matching heels. now ladies I purchased these shoes from shoedazzle a few years ago.. there’s no way I ever imagined of finding a matching belt years later. Thanks to ebay, I found this belt for only $9!  If you are not into purple, no worries this dress comes in yellow and white.

How would you rock a simple shirt dress?

Believe it or not when i’m not sure if something will look good on me, Yolanda always seems to me amaze me with different prints and colors. I actually was drawn to the skirt version of this dress. However Yolanda styled this dress perfectly. Sometime less is more. I love this almond colored purse and the simple purple shoes. This allows for the dress to do all the talking and Yolanda to do all the walking. Find out all the details here.

As you all know that I petite and just skinny lol.. I so wish I would look like this in Lydia’s outfit! Eva makes her clothes for all shapes and sizes. let’s just pause, Lydia made this look easy. She too also has the dreamy ruffle white off the shoulder top, which I totally love! She paired this with Eva’s yellow pencil skirt. ILydia pushed the limits of this outfit by adding a black belt with a blue and white stripe heels.. I think I may have flatlined.. Can I say stylish!!! Find out more details to Lydia’s look here.

Did yaull love I love lace and crochet? I have not blogged about this a lot, however Reyni’s look is flashing me back to my wedding. The soft green and crochet that this outfit has to offer is amazing! Eva has done it again with bringing vintage style to new heights. The soft green crop top is a perfect match for the crochet green with a pop of cream underlay. But wait….my girl had the nerve.. yes the nerve to hit this with the rose gold heels. I think I need a glass of water this outfit is so hot!! I would have never thought to pair this together, but if you look closely the green has a hint of gold in it. How awesome is that! Find out all the fab details here.

As I grow through my blog, I find myself finding more and more inspiration from these ladies.. make sure to check out all the fab details on their blog! What are some of your Eva pieces, and if you have never shopped this collection head on over to NY & Company she has a new collection out.

What To Wear When It Snows?

IMG_3543IMG_3544IMG_3545IMG_3546

 

Who doesn’t love the cold weather especially with snow.. I had so much fun in Atlanta’s first snow this year. Well first snow? it might be our only snow of the season.. I am hoping for more. Since I come from San Diego California where it never snows , I feel a kid in a candy shop! You know this diva had to get out in the cold for a quick photo shoot for you guys. The next couple of posts will most likely be me in winter wonderland.

First thing is first make sure you have a warm sweater and layering pieces. I absolutely love this grey turtleneck poncho from Shop Dress Up. the material is so soft, the tassels add an extra pop and I wanted to add just a little color but placing this faux fur vest from F21 over it. A pair of simple leggings always work with long tunic sweaters. These JustFab booties were the perfect pair for this outfit. I swear these booties are so comfortable so far I have wore them for almost 12 hours with no problems!

Have fun in the snow

“It’s Friday
And I’m ready to sing
Pick up my girls and hit the party scene
Tonight, oh it’s alright”
Now let me here you say “Back, back forth and forth” Aye Aye.. I am having my own party it’s FRIDAY!!!

I am such in a chill mood right now that’s why this outfit is perfect for the first day of Fall! Red, black and white are always in style especially worn as sweats. Lace detailing and sweatshirts are a must have in your wardrobe this fall and winter! This popping red sweatshirt matches perfectly with the black joggers accented with a red and white stripe down the side. The sweatshirt is not originally cropped but this is giving me more of that 90’s Aaliyah vibe. This entire outfit is from NY&Co. For accessories, I decided to jazz this outfit with these leopard print Cole Haan slip on sneakers along with this leopard print clutch. The clutch was a bargain find at Hobby Lobby for $2!

Enjoy the first day of Fall and your weekend! Xo happy Fashion Divas.

I mean’t to post details on my engagement photo dress before my wedding.. However as everyone knows things can get a bit crazy while planning and executing a wedding.. let’s jump into the long overdue details of this look.

I love the look of lace.. hence I guess I was playing off the overall look and feel of my weddings because my wedding dress just happened to be lace as well. This lovely fit and flare black lace dress comes from Venus. Venus? not Venus Williams (lol) check out their website they have cute comfortable, sexy clothes and bathing suits.. you might just find something you like! This dress comes with a champagne undertone decked out with a small train.. ladies this dress is definite show stopper! I wore this on a dinner date with my superhero (my husband) and i was stopped more than 3 times!  I kept my shoes simple with a closed toe faux sued tie up heels.

This dress is perfect for a hot date night.. red carpet event or of course for a stunning photo shoot.

Fall into Autumn

FullSizeRender 3IMG_0907.JPGIMG_0926.JPGFullSizeRender-1IMG_0918.JPG

First off I’m Back!!! I kinda.. cough cough got married and took a break off from my blog.. however I will be uploading details about my dress, veil, shoes and all the other wedding goodies! so stayed tuned for that!

Divas Fall is amongst us.. I truly love summer.. but it’s time to kick it in to gear and dust off those jackets, boots and sweaters.. Well not quite yet, here in Georgia we are still hitting the 80’s with a brisk cool start. eek I am not a fan of cold to hot.. Anyways let’s get to this blog post.

JustFab sent me these “Rayleene booties to review.. and I must say I love them! However I thought the color would be more “Green Olive” versus the brown olive.. but thats okay I now have another excuse to shop for olive booties.. and does it sound like I am disappointed.. They are very comfortable, it comes with a faux tassel zipper and a workable zipper on the inside.. the cool thing is that the zipper trims the opening of the boot!

I kept this look pretty basic if you know what I mean. I threw on a pair of high waisted legging  Soho jeans from New York and Company. These leggings are so comfortable I must say.. I must be getting old because I am loving just the ease of comfortable clothing. I paired this look with a simple creme blouse that has lace detailing around the neckline and topped it off with a leopard print bomber jacket also from NY&Co.

Ease into fall with comfort and class. xo happy Fashion Divas

How to Pick the Perfect Outfit

IMG_0639IMG_0636IMG_0640.JPGIMG_0641IMG_0596.JPG

Motivate yourself by looking good. many times I wake up in a blah mood.. I uplift my spirits by praying in the morning and of course picking out the perfect outfit for the day. In order to pick the perfect outfit I take in consideration a couple of factors:

  1. The weather
  2. What color I feel like wearing
  3. Dress, pants, or skirt
  4. Shoes: heels, flats, boot or sandals

Once you narrow down your options then you can begin to mix and match pieces in your wardrobe. Thats exactly what I did with this outfit. I pulled out this blushing blue bow tie puffy cap sleeve blouse that I have had for years.. It’ one of those shirts that you love and can never get rid of.. Pairing this blouse with this napkin print full midi skirt from NY&CO Eva Mendes line. Ladies if you are looking for a great printed full midi skirt check out Eva’s line I promise you will be pleased. To top of this day to night look I decided to pair it with my blue and green two toned Coach purse and my caged blue suede heels. Ladies now you are ready to conquer the day!! Enjoy your weekend and Happy Fashion Divas.

Yellow Lace Dress

IMG_0536IMG_0527.JPGIMG_0530-1IMG_0535.JPGIMG_0534.JPGIMG_0524IMG_0543.JPG

So Sorry for the delay on this outfit details.. Sometimes life calls and everything else comes second! Did I ever tell you all how insecure I used to be of my legs, because of how skinny they are.. Well it took me years to gain confidence to be bale to wear short dresses.. shorts and just about anything above the knee. It was not until my early twenties, self evaluation and love for me to say forget it this is the way God made me.. So here I am today wearing clothes above the knee..

Ok now to the outfit details. This lace yellow dress is not a newbie in my closet.. intact it’s a good 5 or more years old.. Hailing form Burlington Coat Factory.. I absolutely love the lace detailing.. the length and the light lining underneath. It’s has an easy access zipper in the back this dress can easily be dressed up or down. I paired it with my simple brown gladiator gold studded sandals from JustFab.. and tied it in with a basket weave two toned hat. I wanted to add color to this look so I opted for this shifted corded weaved multi color purse.

It’s just that simple. Don’t over think an outfit.. and remember love the skin you are in
