Purpose & Passion

Purpose and Passion is the theme for March. My hopes are to dig deep this month and finding your purpose which equals your passion. I have talked about this before lightly. However I think it’s a good time to revisit this. Not only for you all to be motivated but me as well. I tend to have atones of ideas, thoughts, passions and goals and some i never execute. However I am so exited that I have my girl tribe. IF you haven’t read my blog post about why you need a girl tribe check it out here.

Anyways let’s dive into this Faith In fashion motivation. “Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 32:19. This month I tend to explore some of my goals and my purpose. Truly write and define and try to execute the ones that truly reflect my purpose. I want you all to write a goal, define and execute. let’s see how far we get this month! It will be interesting, well for me anyways. Are you ready to Conquer March ladies? Remember the theme is Purpose and Passion. Let’s rock your purpose in style.

For this outfit, I wanted to a do a super classy and chic look. I mixed a little bit of old with new! You all know I love New York and Company, and I just had to snag this Gabrielle Union overalls that were on super clearance! No longer available however they have something similar! I love the cute adjustable buckles that snap in the back. This skinny pant leg overalls will set you apart especially in the office! I paired it with this roaring blue leopard blouse form JcPenny.. cough cough years ago. But the way I switch out my clothes you would think it was new! Topping this look off with a sequin beret and stank heel faux suede booties did the trick. And let’s not forget my blue floral and leather moto jacket. this was a major find and steal from TjMaxx a few years ago. Don’t sleep on the steals.

More Than A Conqueror

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Romans 8:37

I stumbled upon this passage right when I needed it the most. As many of you know my godmother passed last month and it did take me by storm. When I returned home from her funeral my husband had the house clean bed made.. and this devotional sitting on my night stand by my side of the bed. I looked at it and smiled.. but looked closer and this scripture was right on the front cover. I knew this would be our spiritual premise for the month of February.

img_0488

I have faced many challenges and obstacles in my life and boy do I know there’s more to come. I just try to position myself where I am prepared for whatever is to come. I try to learn from what I have already gone through and apply it to the next situation.

So what is a conqueror? What does this word mean to you and how are you allowing God to conqueror your life?

  • To be honest I didn’t know what it meant to conqueror anything. I had never thought about my struggles as accomplishments and conquering them. Whenever a problem or a tasks arise something inside of me would kick into go mode, and to find a solution and execute! Well that all changed as I grew older, wiser and closer to God.
  • Conquering to me means achieving
  • I allow God to conqueror my life by listening to him daily. I have found that I have to be spiritually fed in order to maneuver through life. Daily I must subject myself to him. Because lord knows if I operate in myself I can do some serious damage, make unnecessary mistake etc.

Let’s conqueror this month divas! Be bold, be you and say true!

Mali Music- More Than A Conqueror is the perfect song to meditate to this month. I once praised danced too this song and let’s just say.. Amen! To this day it still gives me that energy that I need when feeling low!

This Christmas, 3 Things I’m most Thankful for!

Merry Christmas to my wonderful and lovely fashionista Divas. I am so thankful to see another Christmas. Let’s not forget the true meaning of Christmas “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21 NIV. Oh what a joyous day that our lord and savior was born! I am so thankful for God and all of the blessing he has bestowed upon me!

As you can see today’s blog is a collaborative with my girls the I(E)SHA’S- Daniesha of Officiallychic and Kisha of Kisharoseatl. We wanted to bring you some Holiday cheer, what I am thankful for and a bit of fashion inspiration all at the sometime! Remember our last collaboration was about having a girl tribe.. well no lie our theme is tartan aka plaid and that was it. But you know when yawl are truly friends, sister, bff’s when 2 out of 3 come dressed in the same outfit!!! Ha I started screaming when Daniesha showed up wearing exactly the same outfit. We thought it was so cute and said let’s roll with it. See great minds think alike!

Simply God

img_0114

I can’t express how thankful I am for my lord and savior. I have been through many ups and downs. Lately I have found myself feeling extra low, a bit depressed and sad.. to the point I can’t just pinpoint one thing that is totally bothering me.. I know that this is a sign to bring it back and focus on what’s always true and consistant. “God” no matter what happens I can always call on him and somehow, someway he always makes a way and I definitely feel better! Things are never perfect and I tend to sometimes get off track or get int hat day to day rut, but I always strive to put my best foot forward and walk in the path that God has set for me.

 

Family

img_0116

Who isn’t thankful for their family? Of course my main Twin my momma.. I talk about her often on my blog yawl should know her by now! Okay Okay sometimes I fight with my sisters like cats and dogs. like apple’s to oranges.. But it’s only because we are all unique individual people, with different minds and thought processes.. or maybe it’s just because we are women that are from Venus! My brother 1 of 4 girls bless his heart! He’s that jive turkey that you need right in the mist of it all to make sure the pot never over boils.. I’ve been through it all with my family and we are still standing. learning, growing and still cracking those same ole silly jokes that we never get tired of! Many people can’t relate but My in laws are my family. My mother in law is like another mother someone I can confide in and run fashion ideas by. Some of you know that I don’t have a relationship with my father but God works in mysterious way, he gave me one with my father in law! And yes I always wanted a little sister and lord Jesus why did you have to answer that prayer..lol but he did and so my sister in law fits right into my crew of sisters.. and yes drama? of course but she wouldn’t be a sister if we didn’t! I saved the best for last My Mr. This blog wouldn’t be in existence if it wasn’t for his love support. I love and I am so thankful for this man!

 

My Tribe- Friends

img_0112

Where do I start? I kinda don’t have friends.. You see once you become my friend you become family.. I truly hold my friendships dear and near and I sincerly care about each and every one fo you. I am going to name a few that have held me down from then to now! The Ladee Clique- Yawl know who you are.. and guess what the B2K Millennium tour is about to be LIT!!!!!! cough cough okay I just needed to get that out of my system. Deonna, Kevin, My Work boo’s C and V + a few more.. My new found sisters the I(E)sha’s my ATL girl tribe. This list could go on and on.. but I love all of yaull!

Voyage ATL- Featuring Emanee’s Closet

Hey Divas, guess what this  fashionista has been featured in a magazine! What really? Yes I am sitting here in disbelief. I can’t say it’s been a long time coming but then again it has. If you don’t know my full blogger story or just looking for a good read then this will satisfy your reading sensations!

 

Voyage ATL is  local magazine based here in Georgia but by way of Los Angelas California which is also hometown for me! Well San Diego is my city but LA is close enough say that! You all know my cali roots. Anyways the magazine features many local influencers, from fashion, foodie, art, culture, health and fitness. But what’s so cool is that all the articles are written from the influencers perspective!

I won’t bore you and tell all the deets of this amazing feature, so without further ado here’s my article featured in Voyage ATL. Happy Reading Divas!

Voyage ATL – Featuring Emanee’s Closet 

Being Mary Jane – Gab Union Edition

unnamedyellow 4yellow 6yellow 7yellow 3yellow 2

 

Divas did you know that Gabrielle Union has her own clothing line at New York and Company? It’s sizzling hot.. If you are a chill, career driven, classy and edgy diva, then this line is totally for you. If you have watched Being Mary Jane, then you know the outfits that Gabrielle wear are on fire. I am so excited about the spring line dropping. This time around they have incorporated fashion unity among women of all sizes with the Being Mary Jane. I think this is much needed and totally supports New York & Company’s overall mission.

So let’s get into this bold blazing sweater dress. Ladies this dress is more of a gold than a zinging yellow! The material is a stretch knit made to fit every curve of your body. The detailing on the waist and bust, gives you the tiny waist effect. I love the length of this dress as it’s sophisticated and classy that can be worn to work or out for a date night. I usually don’t have a hard time pairing shoes with my outfits, but this one put me to the test. This dress deserved to be done right, and I felt that a pop of leopard print would serve it justice! I paired this dress with my Antonio Melani leopard calf hair pumps and added a leopard wrap to my hair!  If you have not checked out the entire Gab Union line please do so, this dress also comes in a lovely peachy pink color. How are you Being Mary Jane?

Hey Divas,

It’s been to long yes.. but life has thrown me lemons for the passed couple of weeks so I am now making my lemonade! I am extremely tired and trying to get back into the swing of things.. staying motivated has been hard however i have thought of some new savvy ways to make some extra cash and to hopefully take my blog to new heights!

Let’s get into this super fun warm look. I love color and over sized pieces that i can cozy up with boots and leggings for the winter. Well i snatched this turtleneck poncho form my job? What? well I don’t work for a retail store, however threes this women who has her own boutique and shes sets up in the lobby of our office. She sells scarfs, ponchos, jewelry, purses wallets, and a few other accessories. How funny is that I actually had the “red” version of this poncho in my online shopping cart on shein.com. The price was only a $3 difference so i went ahead and bought it. the material is very heavy and thick like a wool blend. long enough to cover the front and your behind! I kept it simple with my favorite black leggings and my tall lace up booties from Justfab!

How are you staying warm and fashionable this winter?

As we get closer to the end of the year I have been in chill mode and strategically writing out next years goals. This year was epic as I got married and I have so much to be thankful for! I have been doing a lot of reflecting and trying to figure out what else is there that I can do.. do in my spare time to positively effect someone else’s life.

Enough of me rambling let’s get into this quick simple outfit. Burnt orange or maybe you call it rust.. this honeycomb knit sweater from Forever 21 is the perfect match with this handmade coyote fur vest. Keeping it simple with these dark wash skinny stretch leggings from NY & Co. topping this look off with my tall rust boots from JustFab! That was easy!

Stay warm this winter!

Don’t you love it when your outfit is warm comfy and bedazzled.. YESSSS hunny slay for the fashion GAWDS. This outfit from NY&Co gave me life!! No joke divas I have a hard time with dressing down.. particularly in sweats. So when I saw these bedazzle joggers and this sequined #blessed hoodie I had to have it!!! In all honesty these to pieces were not made to go with each other but in my fashion mind they were meant for each other! To make this look extra cozy I slipper on this puffer vest and blue knitted pom pom hat.

Let’s take a minute for these booties………………………………ladies these booties right here……are of course from JustFab. they come in metallic, burgundy and black.. super comfortable and are a show stopper! Super chill, cute and bedazzled look for those cold winter days.

What To Wear When It Snows?

IMG_3543IMG_3544IMG_3545IMG_3546

 

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

xo Happy Fashion Divas!
