Do you ladies ever go thrifting? Well I must say thrifting for me is therapeutic.. it’s almost like  a hunt or what great items will I find.. I have 2 hot spots I love to thrift and consign at. one is the GoodWill and another is a black owned thrift shop called Best Kept Secret. I have actually posted a few other items from BKS on the blog. BKS is actually black owned and if anyone knows I love supporting black owned businesses!

So lest get right into this furry outfit. Stating form head to toe, I purchased this fabulous fur vest from BKS. It’s originally from Chicos and it still have the $150 price tag on it! I love how the faux fur offers different neutral tones that is pared with a cream knit back and a leather belt. I placed a simple cream sweater underneath. my skirt is thirfted from the GoodWill. I love the grey wool blend with the gold sailor buttons. As it gets colder I will definitely wear tights with this but I thought my legs look good enough to wear with they extra high heel booties! I kept my accessories simple with a gold wrist-lit.

Don’t be afraid to go thrifting you never know what goodies you just may find.

I swear all my outfits have stories.. Everyone knows I’m a new York and Company junkie.. I can’t stay off their website or out of their stores. Boo hoo me they are forever sending me coupons!

Who has watched Issa Rae’s Insecure.. well my late tail just caught on a few months ago and on Season 1 Episode 8 I spotted my girl Issa rocking this bad multi colored embroidered jacket.

I totally freaked out because I had just tried on that same jacket at at NY & Co, but I refused to pay $80 for it. But tell me why the Fashion GAWDS came through and let a diva get this jacket for $23 on clearance. I lost my mind again as why would they drop this to clearance the jacket had just came out… ask no question my happy tail hit the purchase button and bam!

I pared this jacket with my cranberry body-con mock neck dress.. black tights and black booties.. let’s not forget this stunning cranberry satchel from JustFab! Mind you I have this purse in blue too, it is really that amazing. This was such an easy outfit to pair together. you can take this blazer jacket form casual to dressy take your pick!

So yes you can have a celebrity style for cheap!

Cotton Candy Fall Outfit

IMG_3196IMG_3197IMG_3200IMG_3205IMG_3218

 

Can I tell you that it’ is freezing here in Georgia and Iv’e been in my sweats, hoodies and boots! As I have mentioned before crushed velvet is in, when I saw these sneakers it took me way back in time.. All the way to when I was 16 working the concession stand at Sea World in California. These soft Rocket Dog tennis shoes reminded me when I used to sell cotton candy or should I said candy floss. There were always guest at the park that owned their own convenient stores, that would complain about the price of “candy floss” I can’t even lie the price was ridiculous, but at that time it’s either you want it or not.. I guess after working a little over a year, cooking cotton candy and going home smelling like sea lions and Shamu I should probably hate the smell of it.. Sadly I find myself sneaking tot eh dollar store for bags of cotton candy.

I paired these shoes with a soft heather grey sweat outfit. These sweat are soft, not to thick or thin, comes with lace detailing on the pants and the neck line. I places a simple pink “feeling Fierce” tee underneath and called it a day. this cotton candy winter outfit is perfect for running errands, staying warm or even lounging around the house!

Ladies this outfit is cute and cozy for these chill winter days. Have a little fun this winter with cute sweaters! I found this fuzzy raccoon sweater at NY&CO along with the matching beenie.. Like how could you resist this!!??  I love the way pink can soften an outfit especially for these ugly grey days! Pink pants from TJmaxx were a winner for this outfit. I paired this with my simple coach tennis shoes. Of course I will layer this outfit with a leather jacket or a heavy coat depending on how cold or warm the day is! Enjoy the day xo Happy Fashion Divas

So yes it is true the weather has been crazy here in Georgia. The flowers are blooming.. those nasty flying wasps and hornets are already buzzing around and scaring the heck out of me.. Aand quiet frankly it’s to early for this.. It’s only MARCH!! Okay that’s my rant for the day.. besides all the critters that I do not like.. I am so excited that Spring is on the way!

I decided to hit today with a few neutral colors that was warm enough for the slight cool breeze but cool enough for this warm weather. The cream pearled sweater from NY&CO is the perfect pizzaz to mellow out this H&M striped cardigan. I decided to punch up the outfit with these green skinny jeans..When was the last time you saw green pants? My lace up booties are of course from JustFab.. Are you tired of me saying that yet? I just can’t help it the shoes get me right! to top of this outfit, I decided to add this simple but sophisticated straw fedora from F21. How do you pair your neutrals? xo Happy Fashion Divas.

To keep it totally real with you, My fiancé contacted me at 2:30 pm while  I was at work and said we have a “date night” engagement to be at by 6:00 pm. What would any female do? PANIC! I immediately knew I was going to wear this dazzling velvet off the shoulder dress From New York & Company. The red against the velvet print makes this dress pop!

Now for my footwork of course I pulled out my faux suede lace up “Kateryna” heels from JustFab. These shows gave just enough sexy and comfort.  I opted to bring my satchel red Kenneth Cole purse, which gives me enough space to carry my extra “knick knacks”. Ladies if you are ever in a hurry make sure you have a few staple dresses and shoes like this in your wardrobe! xo Happy Fashion Divas.

Ready to ride out with the boys and still look cute? I put this outfit together on one of those get up and go days! Starting with this cute blue and black quilted Moto jacket from TJMaxx. The jacket is outlined with buttons, buckles and faux leather and always makes a statement. The retro flower print that is quilted has enough pop to jazz up any basic outfit. This cotton blue jumper I have had for years and I can never seem to get rid of it. I am sure F21 still has something similar. Simple black leggings to stay warm for the few winter days we have left. And of course this would not be a fashion inspiration without something from JustFab.. My lace up calf Boots. These are seriously my winter go to boots. They are very warm, stylish and comfortable, I am forever getting compliment. Ride out this weekend in STYLE! xoxo Happy Fashion Divas

Knee High Boots

I am petite, thin, skinny however you want to say it, I choose to embrace the skin I am in! It’s hard for me to follow the “new” trends since my body type doesn’t fit into everything. However I have had these knee high Shoedazzle boots for 2 years now and have never worn them.. particularly because the calf part was too big for my leg.. so I made it work.. Since 2 years ago I have gained a couple pounds and I used my handy leg warms to help fill up the empty space 🙂 hey a girl has to learn how to work it!

I paired these burgundy mixed media boots with a simple skinny soho jean from New York & Company and of couple a complimentary matching Eva Mendes turtle neck. To top off this look I added a neutral with my camel pea-coat that I thrifted and my favorite plaid blanket scarf!

This outfit was simple cute and sexy all at the same time! Xox Happy Fashion Divas!

I wanted to take a walk on the wild side with this outfit. When its so cold sometimes I feel like it’s hard for me to stay warm in cute dresses without layering…layering and layering.. So I decided to wear my favorite leopard print knee length dress  from New York & Company, that has cute lace detailing in the front. Had to keep it sexy by pairing this outfit with my knee length boots and a pop of red accented with my Calvin Klein coat. This Kenneth Cole bag tops off this look to be the purr to this out fit!

I absolutely love this set because it can be wore as separates or together. let’s not forget about the lace detailing on the front of the jacket, on the back of the skirt and the amazing fit! Wearing classy but sheik pieces like this make want to say “FIERCE’ Because that’s what you will be when you wear this.

I paired this outfit with a simple cowl next turtle neck, a simple waist belt and my favorite Macy’s boots.

Make a splash this Winter ladies! Happy Fashion Divas
