I’m still on my motivational high from yesterday. Can you tell me? I am sure most of you have seen all the God is Dope ads on Facebook and Instagram. Well, I just had to support this locally owned business. Why?
- God is Dope
- Faith-based clothing to help the youth be inspired to believe in God!
- Affordable and quality is awesome
You all know that my faith in God runs deep and to me, this t-shirt just isn’t a trend. I am a big advocate of reaching people-bringing them to Christ in multiple ways. Everyone’s calling is different and in today’s society, our youth are easily pulled further away from religion. No doubt that this happens to many of us as some grow up in church and stray away live and learn and then eventually come back. For others like me who didn’t grow up in church, I found Christ in a whole another way. (let me know if you would like to hear my story) I use to sing in the choir along with some of my best friends from high school and while I was in college I praise danced (Below is a picture of me when I used to PRaise dance for Majestic Movement) There are many different ways that one may minister too. Fashion, music, dance, bible study the list goes on. I think it’s Dope that this line exist and it’s what everyone needs right about now!
These t-shirts are amazing quality, affordable and you can honestly style them however you want! I chose to use this as my work-out or running errands t-shirt. Since this pandemic hit this was the perfect opportunity for me to start to get fit? Yes, you may ask why would a skinny person need to get fit? Just because I’m skinny doesn’t mean I’m in the best of health. I still have to eat right and workout to stay just as healthy as anyone else.
Morning walks have been key for me. Starting the day with a clear mind, meditation, and reading my devotional helps kick start my day in the right direction. I plan to add yoga to my routine as one of my good friends have been telling me to do it.. (do you remember that song Do it Do it by Cherish?) I know I’m forever taking it back..
What is your morning routine? have you shopped the God is Dope line? and how do you style your tees? Maybe I should do a styling session on a t-shirt. Let me know if you would like a how-to style a tee blog. Stay Safe, Healthy, and faithful!

It’s been a long past couple of weeks with highs and lows. Have you ever had something that constantly reoccurs? I truly feel like it’s God’s way of testing me. I can’t help but wonder, have I not passed the test?
Honestly, during this year I have had time to do some reflecting and self-evaluation. These tests that I am being put through are pushing me out of my comfort zone. It has not been easy it’s more like growing pains.
I found that James 1:2-4 helped me get through these weeks “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
We may not be perfect but God places trials and tribulations in our life not to hurt us but to push us to be more faithful more like him and stronger. Not just strong for ourselves but for the ones around us and the ones we have not yet met. Your story your life is not in vain. Today move forward with faith. Faith knowing that God will carry you through and all your heart’s desires will be answered according to God’s will. Being tested? Look at it as a step closer to God’s will for you.
Stay encouraged, Have a good week! Xo happy Fashion

How are you ladies doing? It’s been a while as I have been swamped with work (thankful to still be employed) and I’ve been so not motivated! However it’s time to shake it off and get back to the grind. I need to start focusing on my business as I have let that fall by the wayside. I told you all in a previous post that I would share more about ‘More Than A Girl Boss’ I totally have not forgotten just give me the time to dive deep and fully explain all the goods and goodies of what that is. However today’s post is all about what to wear during this pandemic.
I am so tired of reading, hearing about the number of deaths from the previous day, and new case stats. The truth is there’s no escaping it it’s all around us and silent. But guess what that isn’t going to stop me from being cute and comfortable inside the house. For the record I do live in Georgia and yes this state has pretty much fully reopened – but I plan to ride this wave from my couch. Let me know if you would like a list of how I have been getting by without going to the stores to still receive all my essentials!
Let’s dive into these good ole lounge outfits.
- New York and Company: We all know that this is my favorite store and I am constantly ranting and raving about their clothes. Yes, it’s true even their loungewear, sweats, house dresses are amazing and comfortable. From matching linen outfits to cute screen tee tanks that will have you making a statement without speaking. Here’s where you may find all the NY goodies.
- Zara: Zara has always been a favorite of mine but that doesn’t mean I always could afford it. However, over the years I have become more of a savvy economical shopper and I am forever looking for a good deal. Believe it or not, Zara has amazing sales and they are always updated they special price sections weekly. Zara quality is A-Mazing! and will disappoint neither will their loungewear. They offer fine knits, t-shirts, shorts that are all cute and comfy. Some of their loungewear looks more like I’m ready to go! Click here to find Zara lounge options.
- ASOS: Another one of my foveate places to shop! The best thing about ASOS is that they have multiple brands to meet your every day, work, and lounge styles. From name brand to off-brand you will always be on-trend. Check out some of their loungewear here.
Okay if you didn’t guess it already, my Outfit is from. Drum roll, please…..New York & Company and ASOS. Let’s start off with my footwork since this was my birthday gift form my hubby. Sooo.. most of you all know I had surgery on my foot, so treating my feet have been on my top priority list. I have been purchasing more flats, and sneakers to dress my looks up and down. Hey, whoever said you couldn’t wear sneakers with dresses? These are the Nike Air Max – Tailwind. I wanted some funky, crazy, cool with a pop of color. these shoes are super comfortable (well they better have been for that price)! I love how this stripe cotton dress matches with these sneakers. Perfect for spring and summer for that get up and go – nowhere days… Like I said I will not be partaking in the malls, nails, hair, bowing, movie theaters, and Yes I can still praise and call on the lord from home – you will NOT catch me in anybody’s church. I love this croc backpack from Justfab that converts to a side satchel, backpack, and or regular handbag. I love it, I’ve been toting it everywhere around the house (lol).
So how have yawl been staying fashionably cute on the inside? Please please stay safe fashionistas this too shall pass!

FYI: I Just realized that my dress is sold out I’ve only had it for a week! I have linked similar ones.
Hi loves it’s Monday and I’m back to the grind… at home that is. Let’s be real this pandemic is making everyone rethink how we love daily. From grocery shopping, communicating and working. If you are unable to work from home during this time. My prayers are with you daily and praying that you are extra safe. If you are able to work from home I have 5 helpful tips for you not to loose your mind!
- Have a dedicated work space: I’ve been working from home for 2 weeks now and when I went into work for the last time it was empty. My husband told me to grab everything I possibly could since we didn’t know how long this would last. My husband being the engineer that he is made us a work station in the basement that allows natural light to shine through several windows for fresh air and enough space for me to get up stretch and sing and dance. Just enough to annoy him. Hey I have to stay positive.
- Create a to do list: honestly I can’t remember the app that allows me to write my to do list where I can check it off and it sends me alerts. If you know of a good one please send. I currently use my calendar and my notebook. I sometimes like to old school it. Hey ima till efficient. The to do list will keep your assignments in line.
- Take Breaks: this is major. When you work from home you are less likely to take a break. Why? Because you are trying to always look like your online and the computer is constantly staring at you…saying hey check your email… hey you’re at home you can finish that project.
- Plan meals in advanced: you all know I already meal prep but no lie my meal prepping has stopped. I’ve been making sandwiches and eating left overs for lunch. However I purchased all my meal preparation items so I am about to get back to it. Stay tuned for some healthy meal prep recipes. Please make sure you are staying hydrated. Water is key and so Andre healthy snacks.
- Set a routine: my routine has gotten off now that I have a few extra minutes to sleep in. However I’ve been getting up getting dressed making breakfast and at it by 8am. I try to log off by 4:30 as I normally would if I were in the office.
Do you have any work from home tips? If so let me know. Let’s get into this outfit that won’t be seen until all this over.
We are headed into April my birthday month and the cool air still tickles my cheeks in the morning. And then bam it’s blazing hot. We are still in that in between stage. This outfit is perfect for those cool morning and warm afternoons.
This crochet beaded high neck balloon sleeve blouse is perfect. I love the details and the glam it provides this entire outfit. I paired it with my high waisted pink wide leg pants. I added a simple straw striped open toed heels. Add a simple bag and you are ready to steal the show. I wore this with my sneakers to be comfortable and it looked fly what do you think?
Stay safe and fashionable at home. Xo happy fashion divas.

Hi Fashionistas, as we know there is a shortage of household cleaning products, hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Toilet paper being the most odd on the list during this time.I have yet to figure out how toilet paper will keep you safe during this pandemic. However among many cleaning supplies you can actually make. Sometimes I like to put on my Molly DIY outfit and make it myself.. Here’s a disclaimer, DO NOT MIX CHEMICALS! for example alcohol and Clorox, or ammonia and Clorox.. that equates to a serious gaseous bomb in your kitchen. Since hand sanitizer is on the rise I thought I could give you a quick easy recipe to make your own. Also if you have kids please do not allow them to use this in large consumption as it can irritate their skin!
Hand sanitizer recipe
What you’ll need:
3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99 percent)
1/4 cup of aloe vera gel (to help keep your hands smooth and to counteract the harshness of alcohol)
10 drops of essential oil, such as lavender oil, or you can use lemon juice instead
Pour all ingredients into a bowl, ideally one with a pouring spout like a glass measuring container.
Mix with a spoon and then beat with a whisk to turn the sanitizer into a gel.
Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use, and label it “hand sanitizer.”
Want more information on hand sanitizers check out the information from the CDC
I would only use this for extreme cases. Stick to washing you hands with soap and water as much as possible.
Okay so let’s get into this outfit. Every year I feature jumpsuits on my blog. You must know by now, that they are one of my favorite staples in my closet. Jumpsuit make a quick and stylish outfit even on your worse days. Believe it or not I needed a black jumpsuit. I have one in my closet but it’s old and needs to be retired. Thanks to my fashionistas over at Fabrik they gifted me this black utility tie waist jumpsuit. When I purchase clothes I try to find versatile pieces that I can interchange for work and play. This jumpsuit meets all the requirements. It’s super light weight, it buttons down the from and gives that professional look. I paired it with a cute fruit purse. Speaking of which you know I love fruit. For my footwork, these Katy Perry rubiks cube inspired low suede heels did the trick.
How are you staying safe and fashionable these days?

Hey beautiful lady bugs. Fun fact did you know lady bugs and giraffes are some of my favorite insects and mammals. Random I k ow however this is lady bug season aka spring. Unfortunately right now we truly can’t enjoy Gods creation. No worries I am truly finding ways to reflect on Gods promises.
Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him
I am currently working from home and working harder than ever before. This is not my first time working from home however the anxiety that COVID-19 has caused has made this expert so much different. Below are a few things to do during this time.
- Pray: praying has been so therapeutic for me. As I will never truly know why God does certain things. But this is not for me to question but to be still and listen.
- Take a walk: many parks have closed down here in Georgia but taking a walk in your neighborhood will suffice. Make sure to get some fresh air.
- Spring clean: yaull are about to see some winter stuff on my Poshmark! There’s so much I didn’t wear that has got to go. Make sure to follow me as I do another closet clear out!
- Read a book: when was the last time you picked up a good book and read the entire book? It’s been about 10 years for me which is sad. I used to be a book some. Now is the time to get back on it. I am taking recommendations.
- Write out your goals: as things has shifted. Write out some of your goals you would like to accomplish when this is all over.
- Educate yourself: learn something new. There’s tons of feee classes online, YouTube and other sites.
- Home projects: finish up those home remodeling or those small projects you been meaning to get too.
- Rest: lord knows we all need some rest.
- Take up a new hobby/ workout: I used to paint, I think I may start doing that again. Just because the gym is closed that doesn’t mean you can’t workout at home.
- Remain Calm!: this too shall pass
I hope these tips have been helpful. Now let’s get into this outfit. Oh yes and just because we are stuck inside that doesn’t mean you can’t be cute. Im sorry but I’ve always had a hard time being in the House in sweats or my pjs. Now don’t get me wrong when I am chilling I like to say I have fashionable lounge wear. I can’t apologize, it’s just the diva in me.
I am totally loving color and textures right now. My crochet sweater offers a ton of texture with is peplum and flower knot details. This was on clearance at Zara last season. However you can find this sweater on Poshmark or I will leave some similar selections below. My jeans- yaull have been going crazy about these beauties and yes I snagged them for $20 at Fabrik. They are still on sale but with limited sizes left. No worries distressed jeans are totally in right now. These cute cheetah print separate another fab find from Fabrik snagged these on super sale for $24. Espadrilles. I threw on a cute straw bag and my Betsey Johnson cat eye shades and I’m out… or should I say I’m in?
Stay safe and as always xoxo happy fashion!

What better way to kick off this week than to intertwine women’s history month and Black history month! You can never be to late to celebrate and honor these great occasions! Today I am honoring all of us! Why because you deserve to be celebrated too! Did you know that everyday when you wake up you make history..better yet SHE-Tory! Why because you contributed to society, God gave you the breathe of life to make a difference. Sometimes you don’t realize that just by you saying good morning with a smile to stranger can make that persons day! Sometimes it’s the small things that count instead of the big tings.
Growing up I used to say I wanted to graduate from a prestigious university with a 4.0, land this executive position where I could wear those fly business suits with the red bottom heels, Chanel bag, shades and my perfectly manicured nails and har! Boom! that was me. Turns out none of that happened but instead I have tried to make a difference in other ways.
- supporting friends and family
- showing up for work on time (you know it’s a struggle)
- Being the women that God has called us to be!
- Creating More Than A Girl Boss (more details to come! In the meantime get on the list)
Let me take a minute and brag on my girls. Daniesha not only runs I Am Dani Smith, hold down a full time job and is a mother to a growing prince she also is a freelance photographer and owner of Dani Smith Photography. Have you noticed how bomb my photos have been lately? That’s compliments of Dani! Please make sure to go and support her growing small business. Easter, prom, summer family pictures are coming up make sure to book her!
Kisha is always making a statement from head to toe and many of you can probably guess that this fashionista was already made to run her own boutique and that’s exactly what she does! Not only is she a health care professional, mother, and runs Kisha Rose you can definitely keep up with all the in trend style by getting treasured with Kisha Rose Treasures!
My girls are on the move and are making a difference and statements in their own way! It’s not easy multitasking and handling multiple jobs.. this is why I created More Than A Girl Boss! Head on over to subscribe and learn more about How I Ayesha Emanee is making a difference!
How are you contributing to the everyday uplifting of women and your culture!? Let’s get into these outfits details. My girls Daneisha and Kisha wanted to snag these super cute and colorful African Print sweaters hits that are still on sale! We decided to each style this sweat sweat that truly respects our style. I just love how my girls stay true to their style. Just an inside tip we never tell each other what or how we are going to style the one piece we are collaborating on. However when we get tougher bam.. it’s magic! Don’t yawl think we killed these looks! I sure do. Find out all the details on Kisha and Daneisha’s looks! All blog are linked.
As far as my look I wanted to truly play off the different prints that are in represented but the patchwork in the sweater. I decided to put on a bow blouse underneath the sweaters hit and tie two bows! Bam had to double it up for drama! You all know I love leopard print so I tied in my booties and a leopard print bag. I decided to be on trend with these leather joggers that are super comfortable and affordable. As you can see we all wore leather bottoms without even telling each other, but that just means how much you need to go and snag yourself a pair of leather pants, skirt or shorts! Leather is hot! I usually don’t talk about my hair but yawl this ponytail was only $13 from my local beauty supply. I will leave the link below..Looking for drama this pony will give it to you!
It’s Monday Fashionista’s own this week and make She-Tory!

Hey ladies, happy February, Black History, no spend and love month! That’s right this month is jammed pack with goodies. First up is some thrifty style inspiration. February is the shortest month so why not start a challenge. A “No Spend Challenge” thats right. I and my girls are on a no spend “clothes” fast. Would you like to join? IT;s easy.. you can’t buy any new clothing items this month you must shop your own closet. This should be easy and hard at the sometime. As well know Winter sales and Spring new arrivals are among us. One may argue that I don’t need any new clothes which is half way correct. Last year I donated 10 bag of clothes and sold items on Poshmark. So.. I may need to purchase a few summer items.. Stayed tuned for summer finds.. of course after February.
Here’s a fun fact… my blog is based off the items that are in my closet. I started this blog when I was in between jobs. It started off as some thing just to do in sure time and keep my mind busy. But I realized there’s another whole community through this and I absolutely love it! This no spend challenges is honestly getting me back to the true foundation of my blog. If you would like to join the #nospendchallenge. Simple use our hashtag to let us know you are in! We will support you and share our daily struggles and updates on how it’s going. The object is simply to save instead of constantly being a consumer. Lord knows a lot of us are in debt from student loans, credit cards, mortgage, cars…bills…bills and bills. So I think everyone could save a little and spend less.
So let’s dive into these outfits. Thrifting is not new to me, as I just haven’t [reviewed it here on the blog as much. Let me know if you would like to see more shifted items and how I style each piece. I love to shop consignment and thrift stores. Wherever I can get the best deal, I am there!
Many of you know I love prints, animal just so happens to be one of my favorite. IF you follow me on Instagram, a few weeks ago I found this blazer at The Goodwill for $6. Leather pants are a good 5 years now from TJMaxx, my Nike sneakers are from DSW and bought before I had my surgery last year. They were expensive but by far one fo the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. You get what you pay for! Belt is super old and the top underneath that you can barely see is last 2 seasons ago Gabrielle union sweater with leather detail on the front.
My heels are from JustFab and once again already was in my closet form several seasons ago. Don’t laugh but my sunglasses are on their last leg as I need to order more before the Georgia sun becomes blinding. I styled this look with heels or sneakers to give you an option as I am still not walking in heels yet. Yes a long recovery after the surgery I had last March.
Granny Smith or Should I say Dani Smith Inspired!
Lately my girl Dani Smith has been rocking her thrifted pieces and has been setting the shift bar high on Social media! I have had this skirt in my wardrobe for quite sometime and thought now is the perfect time to rock this look. It’s simple but classy. This 100% wool tweed skirt as purchased at The Goodwill for $5. The sweater I already had and my Liz Claiborne Boots are fromJcPenney 3 seasons ago for $19. I added a leopard print belt and bag which is a Gucci dupe for added character and thats it! Simple cute and ready to go!
I encourage you to visit your local Good will and shift stores, I guarantee you will find some gems… well not this month maybe next month?
Until next time xo Happy Fashion Divas.

A New Year and decade is upon us. Are you ready to have 20/20 vision in 2020? Let’s be real for a second we are all currently writing down our new years resolutions, getting our New Years outfit together to hit the town all glitz and glammed up. I have many outfits I can put on to drink some bubbly and party hard until the clock strikes midnight. Thats what New ears is all about right?
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-17
Not quite in my eyes, A new year, a new beginning a new start or is it taking what you have learned from the previous year and applying it to the next. Or is it just another year to stay alive, to fight thorough, to turn goals and dreams into reality. Or is just another year to plan an extravagant vacations, to dine in the most lavish restaurants, hotels, to buy expensive purses watches or to snap many selfies and see how many like you can get on instagram and Facebook? Let’s just take a minute to truly reflect what a New Year means.
To me its God promises and vision that he has for us individually. A new Year to praise him harder, to give thanks for the smaller things to be able to even take another breath and to eat your moms delicious sweet potato pie again. Okay okay maybe not the pie part. For a new year is actually just another day, because God renews us daily. Allow him, he will strengthen you, teach you, walk with you if you have that listening ear. He will give you that 20/20 vision to see things differently and all the blessings that he in 2020 has and will bestow upon you. Don’t get me wrong see is not believing and believing is not seeing, we all know it’s truly hard sometimes but that’s the joy “to walk in darkness is to walk in the light with the lord!”
I have had many visions and dreams, in 2020 I truly plan to execute some of my most wildest dreams God willing. What are some of your 2020 goals? here are a few of mine below:
- Start a business
- workout (I’ve said this so many times..but I truly plan on becoming more…fit?)
- Stress and worry less
- Be on fire for the lord
- seriously get my blog off the ground (stop playing you know you are a boss)
Remember you don’t need glasses, or even eyes to see when you have God, he will always give you 20/20 vision to see! Happy New year Divas. May the lord bestow your wildest dreams on you this year. Love you all for the love and support!
My simple lady in red outfit is prefect for this holiday season and this outfit was gifted from New York and Company. Yep totally and #ad and #sponsored. I couldn’t be more thankful to the New York and Company gifting it to me. Of course the entire outfit is from the Eva Mendes Collection and my shoes are form JustFab! You should already know.. but if you don’t both store are having crazy sales. So head on over to grab the “end of the decades” prices!
