Don’t you love it when your outfit is warm comfy and bedazzled.. YESSSS hunny slay for the fashion GAWDS. This outfit from NY&Co gave me life!! No joke divas I have a hard time with dressing down.. particularly in sweats. So when I saw these bedazzle joggers and this sequined #blessed hoodie I had to have it!!! In all honesty these to pieces were not made to go with each other but in my fashion mind they were meant for each other! To make this look extra cozy I slipper on this puffer vest and blue knitted pom pom hat.

Let’s take a minute for these booties………………………………ladies these booties right here……are of course from JustFab. they come in metallic, burgundy and black.. super comfortable and are a show stopper! Super chill, cute and bedazzled look for those cold winter days.

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

Who remembers the hit 90’s show called “A Different World”? let me run it back for you.

It’s a different world,
It’s a different world,
Than where you come from
Than where you come from

However this TV show was more than just a black sitcom. It was a mere glimpse into black society, our views, vision, our culture and history that many people do not know. I was just a young tot when this show aired but I knew that this show did not depict African American’s as hoes, thugs, jail burgs, dope heads or a low life. Yes there are real African American American Families that have education, yes there are African American’s that have both parents at home, yes there are African American families where both parents have jobs.. and not just a job but a career, doctors, lawyers, directors, many among the prestigious community. This show showed African Americans from all era’s, the arts, the struggle of why, who, what, when and where.

Hillman College was not just a dream but it became reality for me when I was accepted to Norfolk State University in 2005. NSU is one of the few colleges that African Americans were allowed to attended.  I entered as a freshman Spring of 2006 and the rest was history. I could not be more proud to attend a HBCU ( Historical Black College). A college that stood for power, strength and overcoming a true challenge and gaining something (education) that was stripped from us generations ago. Below is a snippet of Whitley one of the main characters explaining why she choose to attend and HBCU.

So I am sure everyone wants the details on this outfit after this history lesson!  Starting from top to bottom. As you all know I love burgundy, so I opted for the burgundy Hillman sweatshirt, it also comes in grey and burgundy. I decided to spice it up by adding my leopard print Michael Kors blouse underneath. I thought this gave the perfect edge. I kept it pretty basic on the bottom with a pair of jeggins and my burgundy hounds-tooth velvet print sneakers from JustFab! My accessories include a matching quilted purse and my shades from NY&CO. I had a lot of fun with this look as it took me back to my undergrad years! If you purchase any items from Hillman Book Store, they make you feel as if you were just accepted to college. Your order will arrive with the item you purchased, an acceptance letter, a freshman class flyer and a sticker. How cool is that!
