A Spring Fashion Must Have

IMG_4384IMG_4386IMG_4389IMG_4395IMG_4390

Bold colors and prints are a must have this spring and summer. Polka dot in particular is hot! Ranging from black, blue, reds the polka dot color options are endless. Polka dot print never goes in or out of style, it’s something that should always be a staple piece in your wardrobe. Prints like this can be dressed up or down. Don’t be afraid to wear sneakers, or t-shirts with statement prints. Try it you just may like it. Le’t get into this outfit.

Just FYI this entire outfit is from New York and Company.. and all items are currently on sale! I am totally loving this Viva La Cuba t shirt from the Eva Mendes collection. I usually would rock this with a pair of jeans or skinny leg trousers. But I had to go bold and pair it with the polka dot skirt.. Well Eva did it best! The circle skirt has pockets with a small side v slit. I decided to make this outfit pop by pairing my orange pumps with this outfit.  bringing out the orange from the top to the bottom is the perfect match! Another color that i tried was hot pink. Play around with colors and prints to find your perfect match.

Don’t let spring slip away with out jazzing it up in bold prints and colors!

5 Tips For A Date Night Outfit

IMG_4333IMG_4331IMG_4327IMG_4330IMG_4335IMG_4328

Divas I’m serving you 5 fab tips for your date night. let’s dive right in.

  1. Location: knowing where you are going is key. If it’s a surprise try to play it safe and pick an outfit that is not to casual and not to dressy. However my family and friends always say I am over the top.. and I must admit, I can be at times but at least I stay true to myself. I always usually dress fancy when going out.
  2. Good under garments: I am flat chested.. that’s no secret.. I am def apart of the itty-bitty-titty committee but that does NOT stop me from wearing a good supportive bra. Yes supportive because I have to fake it till I make it :). Panties matter too. If you are not a thong girl you can always find seamless underwear at Victoria Secret, Macy’s, Dillards or even TJMAXX. I repeat do not..do not wear form fitting clothes and have your pantie line showing. That’s a complete no no.
  3. Dress for your body type: If this is a date with a special someone. you want to put your best foot forward. I say this because we all want to be respected and love for who we are on the inside.. not the outside. treat yourself with respect first by dressing appropriately to your size.
  4. Hair & Makeup:
    1. Hair: Yes this matters. Most women know this. However I allow the clothes to speak to me and dictate weather I wear my  hair up, down, bun, or curly. usually sleek looks like a good body wave or a bun look good for date nights. but you be the one to choose. (Let me know if you would like for me to post date night hairstyles)
    2. Makeup: I am not one to totally speak on makeup as I barely wear any. However I like to believe less is more.. Show your inner beauty and let the makeup accentuate what you already have.
  5. Accessories:
    1. Shoes: I like to find shoes that will add color or a pattern to my outfit. There are so many varieties out to today to fit your specific style and foot needs. Try JustFab who even carry wide width. DSW is my next favorite one stop shop.
    2. Jewelry : Depending if you are dressing fancy or casual, simple hoops, or diamond drop studs are always staple jewelry pieces for me. I always like to have a single solitaire diamond necklace and a bracelet to spice things up. Macy’s, Charming Charlie, or even New York and Company always have great deals on fashion statement jewelry.
    3. Purse: Make sure your purse is big but cute enough to hold these essentials: lipstick or lip balm, tissue, phone, wallet, keys, travel perfume, gum or mint, touch up makeup and some cash.
    4. Cover up: depending on what season it is.. don’t be afraid to carry a light sweater or a cute leather jacket just in case it gets cold.

What are some of your favorite date night tips?

Turn Up The Heat With Color!

IMG_4232IMG_4230IMG_4238IMG_4231IMG_4236

 

As the temperature here in Georgia starts to heat up, my clothes and color choices do too.  I have been so eager to break out into bright colors. One of my favorite work looks are slim leg pants and a printed blouse. This style is not foreign to Emanee’s Closet as I love a good skinny pant and blouse however the paper-bag waist pant is so hot and trending right now. These are the tapered high waisted version of the wide leg pants that you have seen on the blog.

I was instantly drawn to the hot pink pants.. well I have only been searching for like 4 years, for the perfect hot pink pant! And… of course I found them at New York and Company. Pairing this cute trousers with a vibrant printed top only adds a touch personality to this look. This blouse has cuffed sleeves and can be worn tucked in our out with slacks like I have or even jeans. I love pieces that you can inter-change to dress them up or down!

Let’s not forget this cute kitten heel bow tie pump. Of course form JustFab! These lovelies come in black and blush pink. They are a faux suede material and are very comfortable. These shoes are a perfect match for the office or even a weekend look with jeans.

How are your welcoming spring into your closet?

Meet Emanee

IMG_4222Hello Divas,

My name is Ayesha! Emanee is my middle name, Emanee best fits my inner diva. I am originally from San Diego California, and I love, to eat, shop, sleep and repeat! I am the youngest of 5 and I definitely am and old soul with a whole lot of spunk! I have been known to be the life of the party.

I moved to Virginia when I was 18 and attended Norfolk State University. “Behold the Green and Gold” I earned my bachelors degree in Business Marketing. In college is where I gained my self confidence to love me for me. I also gave my life to Christ which was one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. I graduated and moved on to obtaining my MBA in Business and Technology. I soon landed a job in Atlanta GA and married the love of my life.

My love for fashion came from growing up skinny! I used to sketch long ball gowns and watch my mother shop, and dress as if she was always on stage somewhere. My mother was the one who always taught us to “always look your best no matter where you are going…you never know who you will meet!”

I created this blog to inspire all women to love the inner and outer you. I have many stories from my past and present that shape the way I put together outfits. I hope you enjoy the stories and snap shot of my life while being inspired!

This Blog is dedicated to my mom and you lovely Divas!

Being Mary Jane – Gab Union Edition

unnamedyellow 4yellow 6yellow 7yellow 3yellow 2

 

Divas did you know that Gabrielle Union has her own clothing line at New York and Company? It’s sizzling hot.. If you are a chill, career driven, classy and edgy diva, then this line is totally for you. If you have watched Being Mary Jane, then you know the outfits that Gabrielle wear are on fire. I am so excited about the spring line dropping. This time around they have incorporated fashion unity among women of all sizes with the Being Mary Jane. I think this is much needed and totally supports New York & Company’s overall mission.

So let’s get into this bold blazing sweater dress. Ladies this dress is more of a gold than a zinging yellow! The material is a stretch knit made to fit every curve of your body. The detailing on the waist and bust, gives you the tiny waist effect. I love the length of this dress as it’s sophisticated and classy that can be worn to work or out for a date night. I usually don’t have a hard time pairing shoes with my outfits, but this one put me to the test. This dress deserved to be done right, and I felt that a pop of leopard print would serve it justice! I paired this dress with my Antonio Melani leopard calf hair pumps and added a leopard wrap to my hair!  If you have not checked out the entire Gab Union line please do so, this dress also comes in a lovely peachy pink color. How are you Being Mary Jane?

Puckering Floral Spring Outfit

hpink3hpink6hpink10hpink5hpink8hpink9hpink4

 

Hi Divas,

I know I know it’s been so long.. but the weather here in Georgia has been crap and every time I try to get a good photo shoot it gets rained out. I have several transitional spring inspired outfits that will be on the blog.

First up is this lovely hot pink floral, Carmen Miranda inspired outfit. Yes it’s all that! First these pants are A-mazing, if you are short like me you will have to get these pants hymned. NY & Company usually offers their wide leg in petite but not these, which is totally fine. However the floral print on these pants are piping hot and lets not forget the corset detailing on the front. I paired these pants with a hot pink ruffle top. I wanted something basic for the top and for the bottom. My shoes are of course Justfab and ladies these heels are high not going to lie but I needed a high heel to accentuate these wide leg pants. Roaring in hot pink with it’s 3 straps and a zipper back, these heels will the perfect match. I decided to throw in my yellow purse and a light pink head wrap to pull out some of the other colors in the pants. Ladies this outfit is perfect for spring and transitioning into spring. You can easily throw on a light jacket and will be ready to conquer the day!

How are you transitioning into spring?

Hey Divas,

It’s been to long yes.. but life has thrown me lemons for the passed couple of weeks so I am now making my lemonade! I am extremely tired and trying to get back into the swing of things.. staying motivated has been hard however i have thought of some new savvy ways to make some extra cash and to hopefully take my blog to new heights!

Let’s get into this super fun warm look. I love color and over sized pieces that i can cozy up with boots and leggings for the winter. Well i snatched this turtleneck poncho form my job? What? well I don’t work for a retail store, however threes this women who has her own boutique and shes sets up in the lobby of our office. She sells scarfs, ponchos, jewelry, purses wallets, and a few other accessories. How funny is that I actually had the “red” version of this poncho in my online shopping cart on shein.com. The price was only a $3 difference so i went ahead and bought it. the material is very heavy and thick like a wool blend. long enough to cover the front and your behind! I kept it simple with my favorite black leggings and my tall lace up booties from Justfab!

How are you staying warm and fashionable this winter?

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!

How are you staying fashionable in 2018?

As we get closer to the end of the year I have been in chill mode and strategically writing out next years goals. This year was epic as I got married and I have so much to be thankful for! I have been doing a lot of reflecting and trying to figure out what else is there that I can do.. do in my spare time to positively effect someone else’s life.

Enough of me rambling let’s get into this quick simple outfit. Burnt orange or maybe you call it rust.. this honeycomb knit sweater from Forever 21 is the perfect match with this handmade coyote fur vest. Keeping it simple with these dark wash skinny stretch leggings from NY & Co. topping this look off with my tall rust boots from JustFab! That was easy!

Stay warm this winter!
