Reaching Your Goals in Style

Hi Divas I have met a small goal of mine. Which was to obtain 1,000 followers by the end of the year. Well it’s October and I met my goal! Thank you to all of my followers on instagram. If you are not following me you can do so here!I thought today would be a good day since it was Monday to do a Monday motive segment on the blog and of course feature some fashion inspiration!

7524954640_img_2728

Speaking of goals, January will make a full year that I have been blogging consistently, and let me tell you I have learned so much. To my loyal followers, you would know that I first started off on YouTube doing fashion and hair videos. But I found that I just wasn’t loyal to making videos and shooting my fashion and writing about it came more naturally to me. Don’t get me wrong I am a natural in front of the camera… I think 🙂 But blogging just seemed more fruitful. I could just be transparent and physically type out my thoughts to all fo you. Like I said before it has been a journey getting to where I am at now, and I have so much further to go! I am actually just getting started.

I have a few questions for you.

  1. What are some of your goals?
  2. Have you started trying to meet your goals
  3. What are your passions
  4. What drives you?

 

7526968032_img_2736

Try to seriously think about this questions and reflect on them. Are you in a snail mode or a rabbit mode? Are you truly doing all that you can right now. Let em be honest I am not. I can be doing so much more. Don’t get me wrong I am not lazy but I am definitely a go getter and I am my own worse critic. But lately I just want it all and more!

7526974704_img_2737

So today I want you to write down your thought and put a plan of action together and start working towards those goals. Remember to stop saying I can’t.. or I don’t have time, we make time for what we want! don’t forget when you are doing great things do it in style!

For todays look I kept it super simple in red. I totally into red right now and just fyi these red boots will be appearing not eh blog several times! My beret and sweater is from SHEIN. I am so into berets as I mentioned previously on my blog and they are a must have this fall and winter! The sweater is a light knit that hits right at the waist but it complement the red and black stripe on jeans from NY & Company. Yaull should know where my booties are from.. of course JustFab. Thats it simple and chic. Have a wonderful eek Divas! make it count.

4 Tips For Getting The Best Shopping Deals!

Divas you all know I’m a bargain shopper. I rarely buy anything at full price and if I do it’s because I know that item will be gone..gone and GONE. I love to think of myself as the ultimate bargain shopper as I have purchased $100 item for $5 my last win was an $80 for $8 can I get an amen. Now I am no extreme coupon guru like the women on that television show but I have a few tricks up my sleeve. 

 Look For Sales

08AFDC00-2A9B-46EE-B924-3812EC57367F

My first tip is to look for sales. Now I have some staples stores that I know I can always rely on for a good deal. But if I see a sale that doesn’t stop me from looking. Now be mindful some stores like to raise their regular prices and drop them on sale and they call it a sale. No this means they are still getting their regular retail price off the sale. Does that make sense? I have seen it done before I some major department stores. They will put a red tag over the regular price. But me being an avid shopper I got hip to what they were doing. People see red = sale or discount but why does the red sticker match the regular price. So make sure you are paying attention.  A good sale for me is anything above 40% off where I can double with coupons which leads me to my next tip.

 Coupons

C9C10BCD-C62D-4E75-AFE3-344D82B16D90

Coupons are great when they can be doubled with a sale. Okay okay any coupon is good however it depends on the value of the coupon. I usually look for coupons that give me a significant dollar amount off. Now some stores do not allow you to double the sale with a coupon or they make you choose. Figure out if the coupon is or the sale is a better deal. Mind you I am not mathematician but when it comes to my deals I am on it!

 Find Rotating Deals

0E13DD16-9865-4A3F-9E32-B5C706DF7405

Pick you 3 top stores that you love and learn their sales, coupons and offers. Many stores today have credit cards which equals points. Please please be mindful if you are going to venture down the credit card lane, make are you are being responsible and understand all of the terms and conditions. You don’t need a credit card to access to all of the deals and coupons. You can always join the stores email list to receive weekly updates, deals and coupons! No one needs to go into debt over looking fly.

 Consignment & Thrift Stores

9726EA3C-F751-457E-AB67-D24E1D184C5F

I love consignment and thrift shops. Consignment shops will be more expensive but still can find great name brand deals. You thrift shops has rotating deals during the week. Two bloggers that I admire about their thrifting skills are my girls Kisha of the Kisharoseatl and Melodie of the MelodieStewart blog. Check out their blogs if you want more thrifting tips! I usually pop in thrift stores just to see what deals I can find here and there. Usually you will realize that nothing goes out of style. What’s trending today is was trending a few years ago. So that blazer that is on the rack for $80, you can most likely find for $5 at the thrift store. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Okay so I am sure you all are dying to know the details on this outfit. This polka dot bell sleeve blouse comes from TJMaxx. It’s Calvin Klein and was on super discount for $12! This skirt is from H&M and it’s trending on many blogs and I will definitely do a side by side with some of my girls so you can see how they styled this skirt on Instagram. Make sure to follow me @emaneescloset. The skirt is a knot body con with pops of silver metallic threading. The black and white waist band is subtle but ties in the overall honeycomb look.

5 Basic Fall Must Haves

I am going to close my eyes and pretend it’s getting cold here in Georgia! That’s the easiest way for me to write this blog. I have all my basic essentials lined up ready for when that cool breeze tickles my nose. Well I still have some shopping to do before I can 100% say I’m ready. Matter fact I’m never ready because I am forever shopping. But ladies I’ll tell you this I am on a shopping fast till Black Friday. Do you think I can do it? That’s a long stretch. If I do purchase anything it will be Christmas gifts.

If you know me I’m so not a basic person. I barely have regular t-shirts in my wardrobe. So this is a good way to mix up basic with my over the topness!

1. Shirt Dress

 

C3985214-356C-45D5-BBAD-F8AADC6208D9

Ladies shirt dresses are amazing for fall. I will even go as far as saying a long tunic will work in place of a shirt dress. These pieces are great to go from fall to winter. As you can wear it as a dress, or put leggings underneath for the colder days. These pieces can easily be dressed up or down depending on the style and material.

 

2. Leggings

8C501889-8D71-45EA-BC99-FD9BAC1CD96A

Now please I repeat please.. let’s not do the dreaded camel toe ladies!!! It’s so not cute and honestly no one wants to see that. Okay now.. leggings.. they pair great with a shirt dress, tunics and skirts. Lately I have seen the cutest prints out lately.. I’m not wearing leggings with this looks but coming up on the block I definitely will be serving you some eye candy. Please not theres a difference between leggings and tights!

 

3. Hats

CFDF17F9-1FE4-4E82-9B47-6E15908F2438

Fedoras and berets are trending hard right now. I must admit I have a few fedoras already in my closet but for berets I had to toss them.. they were so old, time for an update. Once again catch some of my blogs coming up as I will be featuring some of these hats on the blog.

 

4. Booties

 599B043D-D5F4-4289-A2B4-2B4C8D898A32

If you have been following me on Instagram you will know that booties are life right now! Lol I can’t help myself.. if I see them and they are different.. and if they call my name lol, hey are coming with me. No but seriously booties come in all different heel heights, shapes and sizes. From stiletto to block heel, to pointed toe to rounder toe even open toe. Take your pick. I have been finding my booties at Shoedazzle and Justfab. I have linked my referral codes.  Anything with embroidery, prints, suede of course and leather are trending!

5. Longline Duster

2B063BCB-FAE6-44B4-AA33-4EB6BF89A5A2

I love long vest, dusters, kimonos.. these add just an extra pop to any basic outfit. These are essential for those fall nights or even in the office when it’s a bit cold and you want to cover up in style. Once again plaid, animal print and embroidered styles are trending. I will leave some links below.

These are my fab 5 basic fall essentials what are yours? Let me know in the comment section below. Details to this outfit are linked below. Xo Happy Fashion Divas

5 Reason Why You Need a #Girlsquad

Hey divas, I’m back with a special collaboration today. I am collaborating with some of my soul sisters. I have been living in Georgia for 4 years now and honestly I’m just now finding true friends that share the same love for fashion of course, women empowerment, self love, morals, values and standards. This collaboration is special because this is a collaboration with my new ATL girl squad  our theme… can you guess?

2E216531-41C7-4AD3-9D54-CF6FEB905C92

Okay so here are 5 reasons why you need a #girlsquad.

  1. Accountability: Have women in your squad that will hold you accountable. Somobeone that will make sure you ar doin g what you should and not what you think.
  2. Friendship: We all need love and friendship. But friendship with a set of women that make you live, laugh and love and that will be honest about what you say, or wear. Yep then that’s a friend. I am the type of person that will pick lint from your head, place your shirt tag back inside your shirt. I’m loyal and I cherish my friends.
  3. unique balance: the ladies in my squad all are unique. We all bring different qualities and attributes that make us all different but provides a central balance amongst us all. Ladies let’s be real it’s known for us not to get along…. let me say it again… we are known to be petty shady and yes double cross each other if it benefits ourselves.  However surround yourself around women who value you and will be that balance in your life. For example you always. Red hat silly one in the group because when you are down you can always count on that one person to make you smile! I amknow for being an over the top diva. But these ladies are also over the top diva in their own way and I absolutely love it.
  4. Growth: this is very important. As I look back over the years I can definitely see my growth in life… and you should too. But that didn’t just happen because of me. 1. Is God of course. 2. Family 3. My girl squad. Make sure you have people who are always pushing you to do better. Just as much as you empowering them. We all have dreams and goals and yes life gets hard. But we are all in thsinto win! Even if winning means making it till tomorrow. It always good to have long and short term goals to achieve and make sure your girls hold you accountable!
  5. Empower: this go hand in hand with growth. In order to grow you must be empowered. Who or what do you find inspiration from. My true inspiration has come from my other and as I meet more beautiful young women I beocme more empowered. Empowered to do better, to do more, to empower other women to love the skin their in…. yep that’s my tag line for my blog! But it trust love you and you will be able to have a bomb girl squad!
  6. Is my bonus most of all have fun. Life is so short and life happens daily. Don’t get caught in a rut. Live tou life to the fullest and why not do that with your girl squad!

I am sure you all are dying to find out all the details on our outfits. As I mentioned in one of my earlier blogs that animal is trending for this fall and winter. So me and the girls decided to do our own take on how we would style animal print.

Up first me of course. I decided to do a simple all black 2 piece outfit. If you know me I love 2 piece outfits. I see them as very versatile and you can make endless options by matching th skit or top with with a different item in your closet. This 2 piece out comes from New York and Company from the Eva Mendes collection. The top is actually a bodysuit and I usually wear a size xsmall but this fits small. I had to size up.

A37AF2E0-7E39-4C9A-90D7-673C01D7F052

I decided to add leopard print assecories with a belt and earrings from Rue 21, purse was gifted but it’s Betsy Johnson, and my oh so lovely booties from ShoeDazzle.

Blush Pink and Stripes!

We all draw inspiration from somewhere or someone. I remember growing up getting my first job at Seaworld with one of my best friends and earning our very first paycheck! We were so excited and all we could think about was going shopping! That’s exactly what we did. My mom took us to the San Ysidro Outlet is San Diego, CA. We shopped at Papaya the Nike outlet, Forever 21 and a few other stores. I saw this because we were totally bestie to the point we bought matching outfits. I am going to try my hardest to find some pictures of us matching! okay So I couldn’t find it.. Vanessa if you got it send it over lol!!

IMG_4683

Today I don’t find myself matching with any women but gaining inspiration from my blogger sisters. Today I took some classy and fashionable inspo from my blogger sister Danni Howard the Modern.Day.Classic. She’s super fun, has a great classy style but makes it modern for the everyday women! I totally love it and her.

IMG_4682

With that being said dive into this classic look.

IMG_5522

I love stripes, from pants, jackets, blouses purses. Stripes can add pop to a classic look or make you look bold and edgy! In this case. I found these crop wide leg split ankle paperbag pants… (whew that was a lot) from TJMAXX. These light weight pants serve for a blend between going to work and or a weekend vibe. I paired these pants with a simple chiffon tank blouse also from TJMAXX for only $7.99!

IMG_5527

Keeping this look simple and classy, I chose to pair this outfit with complimentary blush pink block heels. My odd shape shiny pink bag is a perfect match. Both heels and purse are from Justfab.

Coachella Vibes

So the truth is.. I missed the Coachella 2018.. but that doesn’t mean this outfit isn’t giving me hippie, bohemian Coachella vibes! It’s friday and boy am I ready to enjoy some sun! I’m going to keep it short and simple today. I have been featuring clothes from Versona more on the blog as I used to shop there when I lived in Virginia. Versona is the same boutique as Cato Fashion. They have similar styles and great quality, I honestly like Versona a bit better.

IMG_5435

This bell sleeve tribal print off the shoulder top is from Versona. I love the colors, the print and it’s one of those blouses that keep your snatch in at the top so you don’t feel exposed. the shorts are of course from… Old Navy! I love their shorts, as they fit me great, they last years, and they are affordable.

IMG_5445

My accessories consist of simple cognac low gladiator sandals from JustFab, this lovely round straw purse with pom poms is from Shein. Let’s just give a moment of silence to this purse.. it’s it the cutest!!! last but not least my shades are my Betsy Johnson. Is there a Coachella part 2 this year.. cause I’m ready to go lol!

Denim and Headwraps

I truly am a grandma at heart. I have always been called an old soul, or the little old lady from Pasadena-that my sister calls me. But this outfit truly take me to my inner old lady. why because this is something my mom or grandma would wear. My mom isn’t an old lady but she’s a grandma so she fits into that category!

IMG_5054

This outfit is not made for old women but just embraces that old ole 70’s vibes mixed with modern flare. Eva Mendes does a great job with embracing her culture, heritage and inspirations form her loved ones. I absolutely love this denim chambray ruffle skirt. It comes with a denim belt, and lime green and purple buttons down the front. I can’t get enough of this carmel colored crochet sleeveless top. It is so light weight and just goes perfectly with this skirt.

IMG_5068

I topped this look off with my colorful head wrap from Bold looks and headwraps, a crochet side satchel and matching brown block heels.

IMG_5075

This look is so simple and cute and can be worn anywhere.. I just may wear this to work this week :)!
