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

Don’t you just love a good outfit that satisfies your fashion taste! Truth be told this outfit gave me life. I am so excited that the Georgia cold front is coming through. I can finally wear all my winter collections.. I talk as if my closet is a showroom. Anyways, let’s start off with this gorgeous olive green parka.
I was immediately draw to the faux fur. The mixture of purples with the olive green is so pretty. Of course it’s from NY&CO. this jacket is no longer available however they have stocked a new faux fur parka line for this season. I will leave links below, also they have more selections in store!
I did some Black Friday shopping and picked up this $9 long line sweater in this purple color from JCPenny. I figured black matches well with anything so I hit this sweater with my black studded legging from NY&Co. I usually like prints when I have solid pieces, my cheetah print Michael Kors blouse worked perfectly underneath this sweater. Topping this look off with my suede low heel tie up booties form JustFab made this entire look come together. Such a simple outfit that looks pow pow pow!

I would love to sip on a cup of ho tea and snuggle up in the bed with a fuzzy blanket.. However it’s Monday so that means we must conquer the week! Now that Thanksgiving is over it is not Christmas season. I kid you not hours after I ate dinner I put up my tree and decorated! I was not wasting anytime this year! I am probably more excited about this Christmas because it’s me and my husbands first Christmas! I will share a few of the personalized holiday decor items I recently purchased.
I am feeling a bit extra in the holiday season so all my outfits lately have been festive. This outfit I am wearing, everything is from New York & Company except for my favorite JustFab boots. NY & Company came with it this year with the hats and scarfs. I love hats with pom poms and this year the hat is one color and the pom pom is another.. eek I can’t wait to show you all my hat collection! The sweet cream and gold lacing in my sweater is so comfortable and long. I love sweaters that are long and cozy. I added this simple vest to match the beenie. Topped this look off with my super stretch jegging’s and my favorite pair of red laced camel boots! This look has me looking like a mean candy cane.

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!

Only a couple more hours until my weekend officially starts.. But in the meantime.. I will sit behind my desk and share with you these wicked outfit details.. I am calling this outfit wicked.. because teal is a mean color! Mean because it’s hard to find but it’s such a lovely color! Iv’e been grabbing this color off the rack every time I see it..
Ladies I love to recycle old pieces with new that’s exactly what I did here. I adore this white and black striped sweater dress from JcPenny. It’s far from new but it’s a great neutral piece that pairs well this any color. Vests are great for fall, winter and in this color was a must have. I love the quilted detailing along with the pockets and black trim that outlines the vest! It’s not to heavy nor light. It’ is insulated with a nice lining giving you that extra warmth on a breezy day. Let’s just take a moment of silence for these boots..
Okay so these boots.. are of course are from JustFab. the heel height is perfect. the faux suede is great quality. very comfortable and the color.. you already know! Surprisingly.. the calf width is not extremely large for my skinny leg.

BRRR… who felt that cold breeze this morning? Sometimes my best motivation is getting up and putting on “feel good” clothes.. That means a sophisticated look! Iv’e been in my chill mode lately and have not been featuring any of my classy looks!
I swear Eva Mendes always gets me right! With her timeless elegant looks, I truly have weakness for her designs. I am loving the color teal right now, as it’s one of the must have colors for fall and winter 2017! I actually have a similar all burgundy and a all white skirt and top assemble like this teal one. This cable knitted skirt loves to hug…or make you look like you have curves! The skirt is very stretchy and comfortable and honestly it’s the perfect length. I opted for the sleeveless ribbed turtleneck shell and draped with bell sleeve zip up jacket! This look can be worn with booties, pumps or like I did with these opened toed JustFab heels. I love adding prints with solids to give the look for character. xo Happy Fashion Divas!
“Always Dress like you are going to see your worst enemy”
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!
Below are pictures of me and my sister, along with our family and my best-friend on our graduation day! All of my siblings have a bachelors degree, Masters and a PHD (c)! Education in our family it is a huge success and one to be celebrated!

I am in the mood for Fall cleaning? Does anyone do this? I do especially when I need to pack away my summer clothes.. I need to clean and refresh my clothes but also my mind. As we enter the fall and winter season I love to take the time and reflect not only on the year but the upcoming months. I often like to make new long and short term goals. I said after I get married I wanted to start zumba and become more active! honestly I was waiting for my best friend to move here so we could start 🙂 okay so that a lame excuse for my lazy butt. Maybe in the near future that will happen. Until then get to cleaning out all the old and in with the new!
I am still in love with my wedding colors! Blush pink and wine.. My wardrobe is really starting to look like a little girls dream. Keep it simple and light with knit sweaters with lace detailing. I love this look as it’s simple but adds a sweet little touch to your outfit. Bomber jackets are perfect for the fall season. they are not to heavy and not to light provides you with just enough coverage for a cool breeze. This velvet bomber has gold hardware that ads the perfect pop! I kept this look simple with a pull on pair of jeggins and my oh oh so fresh wine ribbon lace faux suede boots! Ladies aren’t these boots hot, fresh.. I feel like dancing.. okay let me get it together. An outfit like this is perfect for the weekend!
