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

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 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.

Turn Up The Heat With Color!

IMG_4232IMG_4230IMG_4238IMG_4231IMG_4236

 

As the temperature here in Georgia starts to heat up, my clothes and color choices do too.  I have been so eager to break out into bright colors. One of my favorite work looks are slim leg pants and a printed blouse. This style is not foreign to Emanee’s Closet as I love a good skinny pant and blouse however the paper-bag waist pant is so hot and trending right now. These are the tapered high waisted version of the wide leg pants that you have seen on the blog.

I was instantly drawn to the hot pink pants.. well I have only been searching for like 4 years, for the perfect hot pink pant! And… of course I found them at New York and Company. Pairing this cute trousers with a vibrant printed top only adds a touch personality to this look. This blouse has cuffed sleeves and can be worn tucked in our out with slacks like I have or even jeans. I love pieces that you can inter-change to dress them up or down!

Let’s not forget this cute kitten heel bow tie pump. Of course form JustFab! These lovelies come in black and blush pink. They are a faux suede material and are very comfortable. These shoes are a perfect match for the office or even a weekend look with jeans.

How are your welcoming spring into your closet?

Friday Vibes.. You have no idea how happy I am that it’s Friday! Ant this all stripe and pop of silver outfit is setting my fashion sense free. Matching sets have been in trend for the past 2 years. I think it’s funny that people find this trend to be knew.. it’s not it’s just been revamped from the 70’s and 80’s.

This entire outfit is from… can you guess??? NY & Company.. I can’t help but to shop there they always get me right! This outfit is no long online but can be found in stores. I love the ankle pants that NY & Company  has to offer. As the cut and fit are just right.. They also have a good amount of stretch. The top is made out of a chiffon material with a cotton underlay! perfect for those spring and summer days!

I paired this look with my silver JustFab oxfords.. just to give this look some added flare.
