Hey divas I am so excited about todays blog! First off happy Monday and we are one step closer to Thanksgiving. Get ready because I am gearing up some great blog and gift ideas for you this holiday season. So make sure you check back for all those details. Kicking off my holiday gift guide I thought this would be the perfect gift for any diva.
I have had the opportunity to partner with Dear John Denim to bring you an exclusive look of a pair of their amazing jeans. Let me ask you this..Is your booty happy? Does your jeans make you look fierce. Do your jeans make a statement? If not I have the perfect pair of jeans for you!
So let’s get this straight I maybe skinny but that doesn’t mean everything fits me let alone looks good on me. When Dear John reached out to me, I was excited but then a little apprehensive to even try a pair. Not because their jeans don’t look amazing but I was not sure which size to choose. I ended up choosing the Maverick in a size 24. Maverick is a dark wash skinny jean. Ladies let me tell you these jeans have super stretch and they are long. What i mean by long they don’t stop directly at the ankle. I long longer jeans especially int eh winter. Great for stuffing in your boots and keeping your ankles warm! The denim, fit style and wash are great and they also enhanced my little bum bum..
Dear John offers a variety of jeans from skinny to flare, straight, girlfriend and crop. Take you pick I promise you won’t be disappointed. Dear John Denim has officially been added to my gift guide list! Make sure your booty is happy this holiday season!
I have you 2 looks in one just by switching out my cardigan and jacket. My geometric print cardigan is from Shein. It’s thick and the perfect topper that can be dressed up or down. I wanted to show these jeans off and match of course with my pearl theme so I applied this dark blue pearl jacket also from Shein. I thought my grey pearl sweater would break up all this blue perfectly. This sweater is old from Jcpenny but still int eh good fight! I will leave a link below to a similar look. Let’s not forget my peal beret! I have been feening over berets as you know and this one will definitely be making it’s appearance a lot this winter. My oldie but newly worn boots are from Justfab!

Divas you all know I’m a bargain shopper. I rarely buy anything at full price and if I do it’s because I know that item will be gone..gone and GONE. I love to think of myself as the ultimate bargain shopper as I have purchased $100 item for $5 my last win was an $80 for $8 can I get an amen. Now I am no extreme coupon guru like the women on that television show but I have a few tricks up my sleeve.
Look For Sales
My first tip is to look for sales. Now I have some staples stores that I know I can always rely on for a good deal. But if I see a sale that doesn’t stop me from looking. Now be mindful some stores like to raise their regular prices and drop them on sale and they call it a sale. No this means they are still getting their regular retail price off the sale. Does that make sense? I have seen it done before I some major department stores. They will put a red tag over the regular price. But me being an avid shopper I got hip to what they were doing. People see red = sale or discount but why does the red sticker match the regular price. So make sure you are paying attention. A good sale for me is anything above 40% off where I can double with coupons which leads me to my next tip.
Coupons are great when they can be doubled with a sale. Okay okay any coupon is good however it depends on the value of the coupon. I usually look for coupons that give me a significant dollar amount off. Now some stores do not allow you to double the sale with a coupon or they make you choose. Figure out if the coupon is or the sale is a better deal. Mind you I am not mathematician but when it comes to my deals I am on it!
Find Rotating Deals
Pick you 3 top stores that you love and learn their sales, coupons and offers. Many stores today have credit cards which equals points. Please please be mindful if you are going to venture down the credit card lane, make are you are being responsible and understand all of the terms and conditions. You don’t need a credit card to access to all of the deals and coupons. You can always join the stores email list to receive weekly updates, deals and coupons! No one needs to go into debt over looking fly.
Consignment & Thrift Stores
I love consignment and thrift shops. Consignment shops will be more expensive but still can find great name brand deals. You thrift shops has rotating deals during the week. Two bloggers that I admire about their thrifting skills are my girls Kisha of the Kisharoseatl and Melodie of the MelodieStewart blog. Check out their blogs if you want more thrifting tips! I usually pop in thrift stores just to see what deals I can find here and there. Usually you will realize that nothing goes out of style. What’s trending today is was trending a few years ago. So that blazer that is on the rack for $80, you can most likely find for $5 at the thrift store. Check it out and tell me what you think.
Okay so I am sure you all are dying to know the details on this outfit. This polka dot bell sleeve blouse comes from TJMaxx. It’s Calvin Klein and was on super discount for $12! This skirt is from H&M and it’s trending on many blogs and I will definitely do a side by side with some of my girls so you can see how they styled this skirt on Instagram. Make sure to follow me @emaneescloset. The skirt is a knot body con with pops of silver metallic threading. The black and white waist band is subtle but ties in the overall honeycomb look. I topped this look off with my red suede chunky heel booties and a few red accessories. I thought about pairing my silver metallic booties with this too. Hmm what do you think?

Hi Divas it’s Monday! do you have your game face on? Well I sure do. Have you ever made a decision based upon what’s best for you? I want you to sit back and reflect on what have you done for you lately? Yep thats right Janet said it best.. “What have you done for me lately.. I just flipped it and said what have you done FOR YOU lately” Let me know what drives you to make goals and decisions and who you intend to execute them. Executing a dream a goal or plan can sometimes be scary. Trust me I know, bt in shelling run if you stay prayerful and are confident in what you are doing God will lead you down the right path.
Okay now let’s get into this sweet peachy outfit! This ruffly dream dress is from Dillard’s. It immediately caught my eye. One great thing about dullards the sizing is perfect. I try to stick with petites if i can if i have to get a regular I buy a 0.
This dress comes with a side zipper for easy of access a waist tie and all those ruffle stripes. I am so drawn to this color.. not sure why but i think it looks fab on my melanin :). I picked this beauty up for $30 and I am sure it is still on clearance.
This dress is perfect for a lunch day, outing with the girls or if you just want to be cute.. what the heck! I paired this beauty with the perfect sequin clutch from version that was only $7. My she’s are old from Shoe Carnival but can be found at Venus. Check the links below.

I am so excited that I will be visiting my bff. I will be traveling to Pittsburgh to rondevu with my clueless homie! So I decided to make this another simple blog. If you follow me on instagram you would have seen that this was actually reposted by the one and only Gabrielle Union and New York and Company themselves! So exciting to recognized by my favorite boutique and designer!
This entire outfit can be found at New York and Company under the Gabrielle Union Collection tab. Chambray denim.. I used to call this knock off denim but it’s not. It’s perfect for spring and summer as it’s light, soft and will match with almost anything. I love the balloon sleeve detailing as well as the tie front. I will admit that when I first put this shirt on it fit tight and that’s only because I failed to realize that there’s a hidden zipper on the side.. ( I must have been that excited to get it on)
This skirt is A-Mazing! it’s perforated with a gorgeous tropical multicolored take me to the jungle print lol. It comes with a light under lining just right to keep you cool in the summer.
I paired this outfit with a simple cage creme heel from Justfab. These shoes are so comfortable and I honestly thought about putting yellow with this outfit instead of this neutral color but it works!
How would you style this outfit?

Yes it’s true I have a jumpsuit, dress, 2 piece polka dot outfit the only thing i’m missing now is a black and white polka dot skirt.. Ha I just might go and snag one. Today how would you style this two piece outfit from New York and Company. I have 2 options, however the options are endless!
Option 1: Red, black and white is always a classic look especially with polka dots! I simply paired my red Justfab lace up wedges along with this Kenneth Cole statement bag. Simple easy classic look. You can wear this to work, out on a date or simply out with the girls.
Option 2: Hot pink always looks good with black and white. Since we are living in color this summer why not go bright and bold. I pulled the hot pink from the shoes I am wearing exclusively from Justfab. I love 2 tone shoes that offer pops of color and prints. I thought this was a perfect match with this outfit.
What I love most about this 2 piece outfit is that you can always pair the top with a different pair of bottoms or the bottoms with a different top. you honestly can obtain so many great looks with this one outfit.

Come through Spring! It is heating up here in Georgia. Although it’s a nasty rainy Monday.. it’s heating up to the upper 60’s.. This weekend was gorgeous as I was able to pull out some of my spring wardrobe to share with you all.
You all know I love Eva Mendes collection! I actually purchased this shirt a while ago when I met her! Yes I totally met her.. how awesome is that! This screen-T is so fun and cute.. it even features fun sparkles on the lip print and even her beauty mark. I decided to pair this shirt with some good old Joggers.. however these have a flower print and skinny ankle. These joggers are made for spring and summer as they are a light satin material, but not shinny. I topped this look off with my ultra red lace up heels form JustFab and the coordinating Eva Mendes tote! Did I forget to mention all items can be found at NY & Company ? Bam this is a easy look.
How do you wear your joggers?

Didn’t I tell you ladies that NY&CO has been killing it with the jeans? These are another pair I picked up form them.. Online the lace looks black however it’s actually blue. No worries black blue..both are neutral colors! These jeans are apart of the boyfriend soho line and let me tell you, they are more than comfortable has stretch and they don’t shrink. I have been wearing a size 0 for the past 2 years however 0’s are starting to “fit” me way to snug so I bumped up to a size 2.. YAYAYAY I am gaining weight lol.. ladies this has been a struggle of mine all my life. I am probably the only person you will know that is happy about putting on a little weight..
Anyways back to this outfit. I paired these jeans with a lace detailed sweater also from NY&CO. This sweater can be dressed up or down. It also comes in white with black lace and grey with black lace. so gorgeous I want them all. I added the yellow hooded puffer vest for some color. I love jackets and vest with hoods. I have a hard time finding outerwear like this so I had to snag it. I paired this entire outfit with my JustFab booties. This entire look can be found online shop this look now!

This one will be a quick blog as I hope everyone is enjoying Christmas Eve with family and friends. I am more than excited for the holidays this year as it’s my first Christmas as Mrs. Laremont, a wife and as a married couple! Let’s dive right into what I’m wearing for the Holidays.
Well I think we all know I had to be fly in my girl Eva Mendes. It wouldn’t be a holiday blog without Eva or New York and Company! Eva just recently dropper her fabulous winter collection and this outfit is one of them. starting from this gorgeous lace bodysuit with a chiffon wrap front blouse. Ladies I absolutely love this blouse. It is gorgeous sexy and sophisticated all at the same time. I paired this blouse with the matching red rose contrast black skirt that flares out. I love skirts like this, as it gives my petite frame a shape!
For my accessories I chose these black polka dot stockings from Nordstroms, my JustFab lace up heels and of course a fur coat to keep warm. That’s it! this outfit makes for the perfect holiday party, date night look!
Let’s not forget the real meaning of Christmas!
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2: 11-14

I would love to sip on a cup of ho tea and snuggle up in the bed with a fuzzy blanket.. However it’s Monday so that means we must conquer the week! Now that Thanksgiving is over it is not Christmas season. I kid you not hours after I ate dinner I put up my tree and decorated! I was not wasting anytime this year! I am probably more excited about this Christmas because it’s me and my husbands first Christmas! I will share a few of the personalized holiday decor items I recently purchased.
I am feeling a bit extra in the holiday season so all my outfits lately have been festive. This outfit I am wearing, everything is from New York & Company except for my favorite JustFab boots. NY & Company came with it this year with the hats and scarfs. I love hats with pom poms and this year the hat is one color and the pom pom is another.. eek I can’t wait to show you all my hat collection! The sweet cream and gold lacing in my sweater is so comfortable and long. I love sweaters that are long and cozy. I added this simple vest to match the beenie. Topped this look off with my super stretch jegging’s and my favorite pair of red laced camel boots! This look has me looking like a mean candy cane.
FYI: NY&CO is having a 75% off Cyber Monday sale. JUSTFAB is also having a Cyber Monday sale and items are starting at $10!!
