Staying Safe and Fashionable

image00058

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
Directions:

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.

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.

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!

June In Bloom

Hi Divas and Happy first Monday of June! It’s been a long while since I have kicked a blog into full swing. However I have the perfect outfit and motivation for you. So let’s dive right tin the goodies.

img_1479

Let’s talk Fear, Faith and Fashion! So I was reading a devotional the other day and it was so perfect for my current situation. You can’t leave in fear without having a strong rooted faith in God.  Your fears can easily overcome your daily tasks, making it hard to function mentally and physically. However this is relation to anything that we do, how? Because we must always have a healthy balance. Our lives must be balanced, whether it’s work life.. healthy food to junk food… working out to not working out..of course to no fashion to fashion.. the list goes on.

img_1481

Meditate on this.. I can do all things with a balanced lifestyle and not succumbing to fear. Be balanced also means that you are powerful and can overcome anything that you set yourself too. So why not do this in style.

This lovely coral and cream outfit is from New York and Company..of course! and it’s from the Eva Mendes collection. This outfit was actually a gift for my birthday.. I know I know super late but guess what it’s still available. This lovely coral knot top is perfect, sexy and light weight for spring and summer. This stripe matching skirt gives the perfect balance with the button and bow tie back in the front or back. Eva always makes outfits super easy to put together. I paired this outfit with my gladiator zip back block heels from JustFab.

That’s all you are now fearless.. confident and have your power outfit on.. You are now ready to conquer the week!

Stay Confident and as always xo Happy Fashion Divas.

Peachy Stripes

Hi Divas it’s Monday! do you have your game face on? Well I sure do. Have you ever made a decision based upon what’s best for you? I want you to sit back and reflect on what have you done for you lately? Yep thats right Janet said it best.. “What have you done for me lately.. I just flipped it and said what have you done FOR YOU lately” Let me know what drives you to make goals and decisions and who you intend to execute them. Executing a dream a goal or  plan can sometimes be scary. Trust me I know, bt in shelling run if you stay prayerful and are confident in what you are doing God will lead you down the right path.

Okay now let’s get into this sweet peachy outfit! This ruffly dream dress is from Dillard’s. It immediately caught my eye. One great thing about dullards the sizing is perfect. I try to stick with petites if i can if i have to get a regular I buy a 0.

This dress comes with a side zipper for easy of access a waist tie and all those ruffle stripes. I am so drawn to this color.. not sure why but i think it looks fab on my melanin :). I picked this beauty up for $30 and I am sure it is still on clearance.

This dress is perfect for a lunch day, outing with the girls or if you just want to be cute.. what the heck! I paired this beauty with the perfect sequin clutch from version that was only $7. My she’s are old from Shoe Carnival but can be found at Venus. Check the links below.

Do you enjoy cute summer dresses like these? I sure do especially one that make me look fab! Xox happy fashion divas

IMG_4688IMG_4685

Until then I am bringing sexy back.. for some reason I have that Justin Timberlake song in my head. I kinda needed to get that out of my system. But yes it’s been a while since I brought you a grown and sexy look and I thought this dress was perfect! Form the Eva Longoria line, this body-con stretchy form fitting strip dress is amazing! it hugs all the right curves and the pattern makes the perfect statement. Look at the front pattern compared to the back, it’s that awesome!

IMG_4682IMG_4676

Pairing this one of a kind dress with  pops of yellow did the trick. Wearing my favorite yellow pumps from JustFab along with my yellow bag from Charming Charlie tops off this outfit..

How are you bringing sexy back? or maybe sexy never left 🙂

Two Piece Outfit- Gaining Confidence

IMG_4653IMG_4660

Many of you know that I struggled with showing my legs, or wearing a bikini. However it has taken me 32 years to dare to show my belly. I know get over yourself? Sometimes confidence comes in all forms, any showing skin wasn’t mine. However After trying this outfit on.. I didn’t look so bad after all.

IMG_4662IMG_4661

Whelp it’s Friday and I am letting it..just  a bit hang out..It’s warm and it’s time to welcome that melanin glow! This 2 pieces is from TJMaxx and is giving me super bohemian vibes. I love loose fitting pants like this. One they are perfect for the air to flow through on a hot day and two they make me look like I have a booty (lol). The matching off the shoulder top is a no brainier as it’s the perfect length to almost hit the high waisted pants. I paired this look with a weaved color block purse that I found at the Goodwill for $5. Sun hat? why not I love hats, this was actually a gift form years ago. Did I tell you that I am totally loving espadrilles right now? Well I have always had a love for them, however DSW has been getting me right with these deals! These back lace tie up espadrilles and are by Nanette Lepore. They are no longer available online as they were on the clearance rack. So check your local DSW for these beauties.

What are your weekend plans? My business travel was a success now it’s time to get some rest!

What Is Your Fashion Inspiration?

Sometimes we don’t realize where we find our inspiration from and other times we just follow the trends. Each year as I get older I count my blessings and realize how much I am becoming more like my mother. Not just by the way I look, but how I pair my outfits.

I am keeping it simple on today’s blog with this eyelet white maxi dress. I bought this last season from New York & Company for my honeymoon. I didn’t have the chance to wear it as it was extremely hot in St. Lucia. This maxi dress is delicately made as it has eyelet laces, crochet and comes with a lining! Awesomely made. I decided to pair this dress with my blue and white nautical stripe wedges from Justfab. Let’s not forget I love a good sun Hat. Keeping along with the fresh nautical theme this blue and white strip hat is the perfect match! Don’t like hats? throw on a cute pair of sunnies. Basket weave purses are trending right now and I just so happen to have one in blue from TJmaxx.

As I was looking through some family photos, I came across this picture of my mom in this white maxi dress. I couldn’t help but laugh because here I am in the same type of dress. Thanks mom!

Where do you find inspiration from?

Flats or Heels? Spring Accessories

IMG_4442IMG_4451IMG_4448IMG_4447IMG_4452IMG_4450

Divas I have been asked so many times if I prefer heels or flats. Honestly I prefer comfort. I secretly have feet problem and hate to be in pain.. Don’t get me wrong I have a plethora of heels but when it comes to looking good I make sure I have extra cushioning, a block heel or flats. Although I love to get into my stellitoes I make sure I have a change of shoes to still be fashionable!

In today’s look I am giving you 1 outfit with 2 different pairs of shoes, same color and style just different heel heights. This outfit is super chill, comfortable and oh so cute! Kimonos are a spring and summer must have. As these can make any simple outfit look chic. I love long kimonos over a pair of jeans, jumpsuits or crop pants. I opted for this simple red orange blouse. Both of these tops are form Ross and snagged both for only $8.99! wow what a bargain.

I am new but old to this rip jean trend, as my mom had bought me a pair when I was a teenager and I was afraid of looking 18 again.. Which is not a bad thing but I am forever being told I look under age.. Yes I still get carded till this day. Anyways these jeans are form New York and Company and they are actually on sale. They are great jean material and offer a nice stretch to them. I love the distressing on these as off an edgy look tho this outfit.

Now for my accessories, This simple cream purse is from H&M snagged this last year for only $4.99 on clearance. I chose these fuchsia heels with fringe to elevate this look. However if you are more into comfort you can have the same look  with the sandal version. I found both of these from JustFab last season. JustFab has been great with offering a shoe is different styles. Below I have similar products to achieve this look.

How do you pair your accessories with your outfits?

A Spring Fashion Must Have

IMG_4384IMG_4386IMG_4389IMG_4395IMG_4390

Bold colors and prints are a must have this spring and summer. Polka dot in particular is hot! Ranging from black, blue, reds the polka dot color options are endless. Polka dot print never goes in or out of style, it’s something that should always be a staple piece in your wardrobe. Prints like this can be dressed up or down. Don’t be afraid to wear sneakers, or t-shirts with statement prints. Try it you just may like it. Le’t get into this outfit.

Just FYI this entire outfit is from New York and Company.. and all items are currently on sale! I am totally loving this Viva La Cuba t shirt from the Eva Mendes collection. I usually would rock this with a pair of jeans or skinny leg trousers. But I had to go bold and pair it with the polka dot skirt.. Well Eva did it best! The circle skirt has pockets with a small side v slit. I decided to make this outfit pop by pairing my orange pumps with this outfit.  bringing out the orange from the top to the bottom is the perfect match! Another color that i tried was hot pink. Play around with colors and prints to find your perfect match.

Don’t let spring slip away with out jazzing it up in bold prints and colors!

How to Achieve 2 Looks 1 Outfit

Do you remember making fresh lemonade and setting up shop on the corner street? Ok I didn’t! However I remember picking lemons in my granny’s backyard. The only thing abut my granny’s lemons is that they were sweet. How do lemons become sweet? Well the neighboring orange tree crossbreed with the lemon tree making an lemorange or an orangemon. Whichever way you these lemons made the best lemonade. You could eat them raw and not once have to pucker your face.

This outfit giving me summer breeze on grandmas porch drinking that good ole sweet lemonade. This 2 piece outfit is from SteinMart, it is very vesatile as it comes with high waisted pants that are lined. So no peek a boos. The top can be cropped or you can pull it down to meet the pants at your waist. It’s off the shoulder with straps. This shirt is a plus because it’s bra friendly.

The red option is if you are feeling bold. I felt that this already vibrant outfit needed a contrasting color so why not red? I added this red floppy hat that is old from Walmart, my JustFab tie up heels and a red Kenneth Cole tote bag.

IMG_4366IMG_4367IMG_4368

For the white an denim option. Now this was easy and safe. Since denim goes with just about anything, this was a no brainier to pair these basket weaved denim heels with this outfit. Toss on some darling cat eye shades and there you have it.
