International Womens Day

Hey Divas it’s that time of year again when we celebrate all women. Matter fact everyday should be a celebration! I have teamed up with my girls to bring you some empowerment, support and motivation on this International Women’s Day!

I think it’s very important for women to understand who they are, to love themselves, and to know their self worth. Since support in all things are key Dani, Kisha and I thought it would be even more impactful to highlight some women owned business in this collaboration!

First off I can’t express how excited I was to do this collab with my girls and hitting on such an important topic. I have stated this before, we are all uniquely creative, strong, powerful, educated, beautiful the list goes on. But I couldn’t be more prouder to stand next to these women on this day! The continue motivation, girl talks, and girl get up off your butt and write that blog support is totally amazing! We each individually have our own challenges and struggles but we definitely balance each other out. Cough cough this is why you definitely need a girl tribe!

so on that note lets define some words that make us women unique! Please note that I took these definitions straight off of Google I’ll explain why as you keep reading!

Wom·an

  • an adult human female.
  • a female person associated with a particular place, activity, or occupation.
  • female adults in general
  • a female paid to clean someone’s house and carry out general domestic duties.

This is a snippet of what was listed on Google. However these definitions do not define a women! a women yes is an adult female! however I am not defined as a house cleaner. Do I clean my house? wash my clothes and cook my own food? YES! But these are daily tasks that both men and women do. Furthermore a janitor can be associated with a man. I totally understand that “a women’s” role is normally looked at in the house but that doe snot define us!

Beau·ti·ful : Pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically. Of a very high standard; excellent.

Grace·ful: having or showing grace or elegance.

In·tel·li·gent: having or showing intelligence, especially of a high level.

Bold: (of a person, action, or idea) showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous.

These are a few words that we are often over looked or the definition is not appropriately applied to women. Listen up ladies do not be defined as something that you are not! You are more than what someone says you are but what God has called you to be! Short, tall, skinny, fat, short hair, long hair, or no hair, gap teeth, no teeth, glasses, no glasses, freckles, moles. Embrace your beauty form within, that’s when people will truly understand and see you for you!

Switching gears to highlight some of this good fashion that we are bringing you today. I am highlighting my girl Mrs. Juanita of Bold Looks and Head Wraps  (BLHW) and Shan of Sewsophitikated. I had to the opportunity of meeting both of these wonderful women at last years World Natural hair show! BLHD head wraps are hand made and you have the option to pick which type of material you would like. Juanita is also able to customize pieces to your liking. Although her specialty is head wraps she also offers, purses, t-shirts and jewelry. Make sure you stop by BLHW and get crowned! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Sewsophitikated is a one stop shop as well. I actually found Shan through the hair show and Dani! You can get crowned, bedazzled with handmade jewelry, skirts that are tailored made for you and purses! I opted to pick up one of her handmade purses! Let me tell you the quality is amazing! Make sure to stop by and check out her products.

Purpose & Passion

Purpose and Passion is the theme for March. My hopes are to dig deep this month and finding your purpose which equals your passion. I have talked about this before lightly. However I think it’s a good time to revisit this. Not only for you all to be motivated but me as well. I tend to have atones of ideas, thoughts, passions and goals and some i never execute. However I am so exited that I have my girl tribe. IF you haven’t read my blog post about why you need a girl tribe check it out here.

Anyways let’s dive into this Faith In fashion motivation. “Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 32:19. This month I tend to explore some of my goals and my purpose. Truly write and define and try to execute the ones that truly reflect my purpose. I want you all to write a goal, define and execute. let’s see how far we get this month! It will be interesting, well for me anyways. Are you ready to Conquer March ladies? Remember the theme is Purpose and Passion. Let’s rock your purpose in style.

For this outfit, I wanted to a do a super classy and chic look. I mixed a little bit of old with new! You all know I love New York and Company, and I just had to snag this Gabrielle Union overalls that were on super clearance! No longer available however they have something similar! I love the cute adjustable buckles that snap in the back. This skinny pant leg overalls will set you apart especially in the office! I paired it with this roaring blue leopard blouse form JcPenny.. cough cough years ago. But the way I switch out my clothes you would think it was new! Topping this look off with a sequin beret and stank heel faux suede booties did the trick. And let’s not forget my blue floral and leather moto jacket. this was a major find and steal from TjMaxx a few years ago. Don’t sleep on the steals.

Voyage ATL- Featuring Emanee’s Closet

Hey Divas, guess what this  fashionista has been featured in a magazine! What really? Yes I am sitting here in disbelief. I can’t say it’s been a long time coming but then again it has. If you don’t know my full blogger story or just looking for a good read then this will satisfy your reading sensations!

 

Voyage ATL is  local magazine based here in Georgia but by way of Los Angelas California which is also hometown for me! Well San Diego is my city but LA is close enough say that! You all know my cali roots. Anyways the magazine features many local influencers, from fashion, foodie, art, culture, health and fitness. But what’s so cool is that all the articles are written from the influencers perspective!

I won’t bore you and tell all the deets of this amazing feature, so without further ado here’s my article featured in Voyage ATL. Happy Reading Divas!

Voyage ATL – Featuring Emanee’s Closet 

5 Basic Fall Must Haves

I am going to close my eyes and pretend it’s getting cold here in Georgia! That’s the easiest way for me to write this blog. I have all my basic essentials lined up ready for when that cool breeze tickles my nose. Well I still have some shopping to do before I can 100% say I’m ready. Matter fact I’m never ready because I am forever shopping. But ladies I’ll tell you this I am on a shopping fast till Black Friday. Do you think I can do it? That’s a long stretch. If I do purchase anything it will be Christmas gifts.

If you know me I’m so not a basic person. I barely have regular t-shirts in my wardrobe. So this is a good way to mix up basic with my over the topness!

1. Shirt Dress

Ladies shirt dresses are amazing for fall. I will even go as far as saying a long tunic will work in place of a shirt dress. These pieces are great to go from fall to winter. As you can wear it as a dress, or put leggings underneath for the colder days. These pieces can easily be dressed up or down depending on the style and material.

 

2. Leggings

Now please I repeat please.. let’s not do the dreaded camel toe ladies!!! It’s so not cute and honestly no one wants to see that. Okay now.. leggings.. they pair great with a shirt dress, tunics and skirts. Lately I have seen the cutest prints out lately.. I’m not wearing leggings with this looks but coming up on the block I definitely will be serving you some eye candy. Please not theres a difference between leggings and tights!

 

3. Hats

CFDF17F9-1FE4-4E82-9B47-6E15908F2438

Fedoras and berets are trending hard right now. I must admit I have a few fedoras already in my closet but for berets I had to toss them.. they were so old, time for an update. Once again catch some of my blogs coming up as I will be featuring some of these hats on the blog.

 

4. Booties

 599B043D-D5F4-4289-A2B4-2B4C8D898A32

If you have been following me on Instagram you will know that booties are life right now! Lol I can’t help myself.. if I see them and they are different.. and if they call my name lol, hey are coming with me. No but seriously booties come in all different heel heights, shapes and sizes. From stiletto to block heel, to pointed toe to rounder toe even open toe. Take your pick. I have been finding my booties at Shoedazzle and Justfab. I have linked my referral codes.  Anything with embroidery, prints, suede of course and leather are trending!

5. Longline Duster

2B063BCB-FAE6-44B4-AA33-4EB6BF89A5A2

I love long vest, dusters, kimonos.. these add just an extra pop to any basic outfit. These are essential for those fall nights or even in the office when it’s a bit cold and you want to cover up in style. Once again plaid, animal print and embroidered styles are trending. I will leave some links below.

These are my fab 5 basic fall essentials what are yours? Let me know in the comment section below. Details to this outfit are linked below. Xo Happy Fashion Divas
