Hey Divas how is your week going thus far? I can’t complain, however I am so not in the right mindset with my wedding being 24 days away.. So forgive me if my blogs are short, sweet or even delayed 🙂

As you all know I love color and prints and I just could not pass up this tribal print sheath dress. The mixture of geometric shapes and the different vibrant colors just scream… Yes! To give this outfit a more rugged look I opted for my open lace booties and this basket weave purse.. Since this dress does not hug the little” shape I do have I went ahead and added a belt to give it a shape. Don’t be afraid to take a leap with your fashion!

How do you mix and match boots.. prints and dresses? xo happy fashion divas!

Being out and about doesn’t mean you have to run around in sneakers and leggings. I wanted to give a pop of color to the grey day! My sweater has pops of yell teal and blues that are sprinkled throughout.. Unfortunately this jazzy chic sweater hails from The Limited that recently went out of business. So Sad no worries you can find sweaters that look just like this one.. I paired it with one of my favorite JustFab flared jeans. To stay warm in this minimal look I added my favorite grey faux fur leather grey Moto jacket.

To top off this look I wore my  vibrant yellow “granny” boots and a mini yellow purse. This look is fun and ket me warm on this cold grey day.. xox Happy Fashion Divas

Knee High Boots

img_1777-jpgimg_1785-jpgimg_1788-jpgimg_1789-jpgimg_1790-jpg-1img_1793-jpg-1img_1795-jpg

I am petite, thin, skinny however you want to say it, I choose to embrace the skin I am in! It’s hard for me to follow the “new” trends since my body type doesn’t fit into everything. However I have had these knee high Shoedazzle boots for 2 years now and have never worn them.. particularly because the calf part was too big for my leg.. so I made it work.. Since 2 years ago I have gained a couple pounds and I used my handy leg warms to help fill up the empty space 🙂 hey a girl has to learn how to work it!

I paired these burgundy mixed media boots with a simple skinny soho jean from New York & Company and of couple a complimentary matching Eva Mendes turtle neck. To top off this look I added a neutral with my camel pea-coat that I thrifted and my favorite plaid blanket scarf!

This outfit was simple cute and sexy all at the same time! Xox Happy Fashion Divas!

Charlotte Russe: Next It Girl

Hello Divas,

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.

Atlanta Ice Cream Festival

Hey Diva’s

The sun is shinning bright it’s just the right temperature for a fun festival. I had the opportunity this weekend to attend the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival. It’s a family fun day with local creamers, tons of games, booths, and food. The Ice Cream Festival happens every year at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park located by the “Park Tavern Restaurant”. I had the opportunity to indulge in childhood popsicle, creamy homemade Caribbean ice cream and BBQ. I maybe skinny but yes I sure did eat..eat and eat. So lets dive right into all the fun festivities.

My First Stop Childhood Ice Cream

So I absolutely love ice cream popsicle. I remember walking home from school and the popsicle “man” or ice cream truck would be waiting at the corner for all the little kids. My eyes would light up when I would see the hello kitty, power puff and other cartoon character popsicle. I had to have one! Yes yes I had a flash back.. So I ended up getting a Sponge-Bob since they didn’t have my beloved Power Puff girl. Who many of you guys or girls love these??

Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 6.08.48 PM

Second Stop Face-Painting

SO this festival just brought back tons of childhood memories for me. Yes I was that kid who want the pretty little princess face paint and never got it. Whelp He went nothing! These amazing ladies painted my face with glitter drops. Yes, I thought I was smoking hot!!

IMG_3466

Did Someone Say BBQ??

So I couldn’t resist the sweet tangy BBQ smell from the local Williamson Bros BBQ Restaurant. I ordered the rid sandwich. Which came with 3 large pieces of ribs and 2 hamburger buns and a Large sweet tea! Yep now this is good eating.. Check them out!

Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 6.14.07 PM

Random Festivities

It’s not a festival if you don’t meet random people and things.. So I met a lemon and Knight  proposed to me. HA! to funny..

IMG_6605 IMG_6634

Homemade Caribbean Ice Cream

So I stood in line for almost 45 minutes to taste this homemade Caribbean ice cream. I had to have it because I remember my grandmother making homemade ice-cream for us. So I knew this was going to be good. I reluctantly ordered the butter pecan flavor. Oh man was this ice cream like heaven, so creamy and rich it was well worth the wait!

Dancing!

And yes I couldn’t help but dance to the african & reggae music that was being played!

Summer Hat Look Book

Hello Divas,

I am so excited about this summer-hat ‘look book’ I have put together. I absolutely love the summer weather. Floppy hats are great for a day in the park, lunch date and just for jazzing up a summer look. Most hats are going to start off at $20.00, however since I am bargain shopper all of my hats were purchased under $10.00. So let’s grab a hat and add some sass to your outfit!

Citrus orange with a touch of pink

Selma Villa Sun Hat 

This orange, pink and tan hat was purchased from Charming Charlie for only $4.99. The brim of this hat is stiff, but can be folded to your liking. The pink and orange is a bit of an odd combination, though it adds just enough pop to any solid outfit.  I love this hat because it gives my head and shoulders good cover from the sun, but not my view of the summer fun!

IMG_3379               IMG_6439

Bright Stripes in White

Calvin Klein Blue & White Striped Metallic Sun Hat (Sold Out) 

Ladies this hat is more of a classic fitted squared sun hat. It is perfectly tailored. There is a wire that is seamlessly inserted around the brim so that you can fold and bend the hat to your style. The royal blue can easily be mistaken for black, however the silver threading and white crisp lines at a touch of pop to this hat. I love to pair this hat with solids or other stripes to give it some flare.

IMG_3380            IMG_6433

Romantic Floral

Fierce Red Hat 

I’m not ashamed to say it “If it’s a bargain, it’s a steal!” This fierce red hat hails from Wal-Mart! Am I serious? Indeed I am! Walmart has an assortment of summer hats and thanks to my friend Lani, she convinced me to purchase this hat. I am so glad I listened to her! This is a classic floppy hat. The brim is big and tends to flop on the sides leaving room for you to look out at the hot summer skies. The hat was purchased for only $7.99. This was a great find!

IMG_3378       IMG_6443

Busy Bumble Bee

If you are looking for a classy but sexy summer look, Ladies this is the look for you.

Barbados Sun Hat 

So, the story behind this hat is that I had to have it!! It’s absolutely gorgeous. But I wasn’t willing to pay $20.00 for it, so I waited until it hit the clearance rack and bam there it was for $4.99. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I purchased this black and yellow stripped hat from Charming Charlie that just happened to go great with my black and white stripped skirt! This hat is a traditional floppy hat that is stiff enough to bend and fold to your liking. The yellow band adds just enough jazz to this classic hat.

My Shoe-drobe
This shoes are absolutly stunning for the summer! Sued material, ankle cage and the up in the back, with a sling back look. If you have small ankles like me you will need to take them to a shoe repair because 2 of the front straps where way to big for my foot. The heel height is 4” which is just perfect for me. I would suggest paring this shoe with an all white sun dress or any solid color shirt and nude crop pants to show off the color and cage the up.

It is open toe with suede material. The heel height is 4’ making it easy to walk in. This shoe is offered in Teal, Hot pink and Black. I rate this shoe a 10 for summer.

All girls just want to have fun! And this is the shoe for it. The Cynthia shoe is great for adding pizzazz to any solid outfit! I love this shoe because it has so many different colors and you can practically wear it with anything. The material is canvas with a 4” heel height. It comes with an ankle strap that is adjustable. This shoe does fit me a little big so I would either get a size smaller or your normal size!
 Multi Color
My Bag-Drobe
Every lady needs a black purse! So I so badly needed a black purse and I found just that! JUST FAB was having a $14.95 clothing sale and they also added a couple purses to the sale! I found this beautiful black leather wipe off tote. This bag is deep and comes with a full cross zipper and even a body strap to turn it into a satchel. It also comes with gold detailing on each corner allowing the purse to stand upright. I love when purses don’t slouch over its almost as if the purse has feet on it.

Wardrobe
I caught these Blazers on sale for $14.95 each marked down form $44.95 each. With that being said I couldn’t resist and had to get this blazer in both colors. These are great transitioning pieces from fall to winter. They are rayon material with a faux sueded inside lining. It had a asymmetrical look that draws over the chest and comes to a point my your waist. This is a great jacket for work or even with a pair of jeans!
