Random question, what is your favorite animal? Mine just so happens to be giraffes. I love how gracefully they walk, how tall they are, their wonderful spotted print and of course their bold eyes with those long eyelashes. I honestly believe that where us human got the idea of elongating mascara from!
If you guessed that I was drawn to this dress because of the print. You are absolutely right. It looks like a colorful giraffe to me. I have been on the hunt for several maxi dresses and this one satisfied my fashion sweet tooth. This dress is from New York and Company the Eva Mendes line of course!
This maxi dress is great for many reason.
- It’s long… if it wasn’t it wouldn’t be a maxi dress (duhh)
- Very light material
- Thin under lining,
- Awesome rope detailing around the waist and acts as straps
- Multi color print
You know my theme for this summer is in living color and this tops off this them. I will admit that this dress is extra extra long. I am 5’3 1/2 so I pulled out my 5″ JustFab purple fringe heels with this dress. I will most likely have this tailored so it’s not dragging on the floor. Topping this look off with my orange fringe purse and yellow beaded earring form JcPenny will definitely have heads turning. This dress is great for a hot summer day, week-ending, and of course a hot date. Take you pick!
How would you style this dress? Happy monday loves Kick this week off in color!

Hey divas, sometimes it’s hard to get up and go and always look good. Work, life, kids, daily tasks can take a toll on us. However just because you are tired, lazy or not in the mood doesn’t mean you have to throw on sweats flip flops and a wrap.. Don’t be that lady that everyone points at and think you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. INstead give them some Sasha fierce and say “I woke up like this..”
When I am feeling lazy or in a rut I always pick my go to jumpsuit. I absolutely love jumpsuits. Why?
- You are all thing fab!
- jumpsuits can be dressed up or down depending on the style. I like to have a variety of casual, and dressy jumpsuits
- One stop outfit. it’s a complete look in one
- You are never under or over dressed for any occasion
- Try to find the loose fitting or the wide leg jumpsuits you will be able to be more versatile with this style. A tapered leg is fine to just be careful for what look you are going for!
- Helpful tip for your body type: If you are curvy, try to find jumpsuit that have a waist band, or tie. Something that will pull you in and show your figure. If you are petite like me with not many curves, I try to go for the same look, it gives me the illusion that I have something! Most jumpsuits accentuate the waist area which is awesome because most women want to create the hour glass shape!
The jumpsuit I am wearing is from Shein official. You have heard me mention this online boutique before. SOme items can be hit or miss so pay attention to sizing, and since it is an asian based boutique sizing does run small. I choose this white light weight jumpsuit, because of the beautiful lace crochet detailing on the bust area. It has a cut out band around the midriff area just giving you enough peekaboo to be sexy. this jumpsuit comes with a shorts lining underneath which is great for those hot summer days. I paired this with my eyelet white wedges from JCPenney (these are so old but look new) and an all white clutch from Charming Charlie. Outfit made simple!
Jumpsuits are so not new, more like reinvented from the past. They come in a variety of colors, prints, and styles. I recommend that everyone at least has to in their wardrobe. this is a must have spring essential.
I love jumpsuits so much you will be seeing quite a few on this blog this summer! Let me know what are your favorite, colors and styles of jumpsuits you like.

SO a friend of mine told me that Charlotte Russe was having a Look Book Competition against bloggers. So all that was needed is to create a fall preview look book and you can become Charlotte Russe’s next It Girl! I decided just to have fun with this one whether I win or lose there’s no harm in having fun. So let dive into this fall preview look book.
Look 1: The Weekender
So This is fun easy weekend look. A simple pair of jeans and sweater can go a long way! I paired these American Eagle jeans with a mustard knit Forever 21 sweater and topped it off with a cheetah print lined with teal edging sealed the look. I wanted to make this look fun so i selected my favorite classic brown coach shoes that have blue and green stripes to add some extra color to this look. And we of course can’t forget the rare blue and green Coach bag. And there you have it a simple weekend look.
Look 2: Stripes & Suede
Ladies a Sweater dress is great for the fall it can be dressed up or down. This white and Black Stripe sweater dress hails from JcPenny. It its 100% cotton and will fit your body like a glove. I usually don’t do too much matching with my clothes however I decided to pare this dress with a Vince Camuto Blazer that has suede patches on the shoulders. The older zippers are a sexy dazzle feel to this look. Because you can never predict the fall whether I decided to wear my camel tall boots from JcPenny.
Look 3: Tough Gal
Ladies Plaids and rough combat boots will always be and easy look. If you feeling rough and tough and want to play hardball with the boys this is the look for you! This blue plaid shirt was easily found at JcPenny and paired with an ash wash black skinny jeans from Forever 21. The edgy combat boots were a super steal from Burlington Coat Factory. These boots come in a variety of color such as brown, grey and camel. I love simple little beanies to keep my head warm in the fall and winter. I’ve had this one for so long I can’t quiet remember were it was purchased from. However you can find these at Target, F21, Walmart, Cotton On and other department stores. So rock rough and stuff with yo bad self!
Look 4: Cranberry Delight
This knit skater skirt I picked up from Dillard’s for only $25.00 it was originally $80.00 what a super steal. I love how it flares at the hips and has later editing around the arms. It is sleeves so I like wear a blazer, cardigan or even a turtle neck sweater underneath. The black leather and suede blazer was purchased from JUST FAB, check out their inventory it may still be on sale! This look can be dressed up or down. It’s a simple day to-night look. The leather boots were also another $15.00 steal from Macy’s that I couldn’t resist. I like to pair solids with prints to jazz up things. Aztec long cardigans are in for this fall. I purchased this one from Ross for $10.00.

Are you work ready? Well here’s some work wear inspiration from H&M. H&M has been having some fabulous sales lately and I couldn’t help but purchase some of their professional classic blazers for work. Blazers are a key essential part of your wardrobe. Blazers can be dressed up or down for a walk in the city to a professional business meeting. Versatile pieces are great to have in your closet. Let’s plunge into the goodness..
Blue & White Piping Blazer
This navy blue blazer is tried with white piping making it a perfect tailored fit. This blazer will pull you in and accentuate all your cures in the right places. The blazer is so well made its lined and also has zippers on the sleeves and both front pockets. I absolutely adore the white piping the back panel of the blazer giving the tailored fitted look. This is a must have in your closet. I purchases this beauty for only $15.00. This Blazer can only be found in stores! I know for a fact they have a white blazer with black piping.
Peplum Blazer (Similar)
Ladies this white speckled black peplum blazer can also be work as a quarter length sweater. That is right talking about 2 for one. The blazer is form-fitting and is light weight but thick enough to be worn in the spring or the first of fall season. This can be paired with color slacks, skirts, crop pants or can even be dressed down with a pair of dress jeans. I purchased this sweet peplum blazer for $20.00
This blazer screams the 3 C’s “Classic”, “Classy” and “Couture”! Yes divas this is must have to be work ready. The fabric is thick but had a bit of a shiny tinge making it pop when the sun hits it. The lapel and cuffs are outlines in a feathered fringe giving it a classy but fierce look. This Blazer is ranked as a power Blazer! Originally retailed for $60.oo I purchased this beauty for $30.00.
Blush Moto Jacket
So this blazer can fall into the great debate category. Is this a blazer or jacket? I love how this piece can be worn as a jacket or as a blazer. I decided that it’s a great versatile piece and that I could make it work in the work place.. what do you think? This jacket is thick linen lined with suede giving it an edging but professional look. Because this color is so light and neutral I decided to pair it with a deeply skirt and snake print heels. This rough soft jacket was purchased for only $20.00. Super steal.
