Shoedazzle Wishlist

As you may know I have a thing for shoes. I am slightly obsessed with them. Well here is a few of my fall picks from one of my favorite online shoe stores. These are my wish list picks. You will see a pattern, this color has caught my eye for the season… I’m… OBSESSED!

First we have the lovely Analy Here .Next we haveSonia you can find her Here.Then we have Ayla Find her here .We also have Cathleen, Here she is.

Finally we have Lilyana Here she is. Finally we have Lilyana Here she is.  

My selection has a variety. I am a lover of heels so of course I have more of those on my wish list than anything else. Flats are a must these days. Being a preschool teacher practical shoes are important.  Practical does not mean boring which is why my 2 picks for flats have a little spunk to it.

Brunching In Black

Recently I did a collaboration on brunch fashion.  You can check those looks out Here. I was super excited to do this collaboration for 2 reasons: fashion and brunch. I mean who doesn’t like brunch? The person who came up with brunch needs to be hugged and kissed. I love this social gathering that includes that of mimosas. When you add fashion to the mix it just makes it so much better.

When I lived in NYC I did a monthly brunch with a group of my friends. It was themed related. Every month a different person would pick the theme and brunch spot. It was always great to come up with ideas and to participate in the monthly themes. As fun as that was my favorite part was to catch up with my girls and chat it up… also the mimosas. lol.

Here is my brunch look:

Skirt and shirt: Here and Here (both currently on sale).

Shoes:Shoedazzle  (Similar)

My look was basic black look. I wanted to add some “fun” to it so I added these polka dot bobby socks and stripped pumps. I love pumps and socks. I love mixing prints, so thing just brought two of the things I love together.

Fall Collaboration

Fall is here , What better way to celebrate my favorite season than to do it with fashion. I’ve teamed up with a few ladies to showcase our similar and different ways of being fashionable for the fall. Fall for me is all about layers, I love layers, you can build up and break it down as  the day goes on.

The thing I love about fashion is that we can interpret it in the way we think, feel and enjoy. I am far from an artist, but  fashion is my way of showing my artistic eye.Sometimes I enjoy the basics and sometimes I can be a bit over the top. I also love that people are at time brought together by the things they they love and enjoy.  

 

Here are the ladies, their handles and their blogs.

First we have the lovely @thedazzlebomb (on IG),I love this sexy fall inspired look. Those Fabulous booties are from goody2shoes.com, blazer from justfab.com and her shorts are thrifted. Follow her blog at Thedazzlebomb.com

Virgo Season

As some of you know my birthday was last week. This year was a bit different, since I was in a new state and the weather was not favorable.  With that being said I still did what I could to celebrate. Birthdays are important to me. It’s another year with memories, trials and tribulations, lessons and achievements. Getting older is a blessing to me.I get to continue to live life and learn from the many things and people I experience.

Of course fashion is a big deal for my birthday. It seems the older I get the harder it is for me to pick out a great birthday outfit. This year I didn’t have any WHOA pieces but I liked my all over looks.  Here they are.I hate that I didn’t get a full picture of my casual look on the Friday prior to my bday but I loved my head wrap.Sunday I went super casual with some distressed jeans from Justfab, They have a great selection of jeans that fit amazing. I paired it with my team’s sweat shirt and denim pumps from Shoedazzle.On my actual birthday  ( Tuesday) I wore this blue dress from Fashion Nova, I will say if you have thighs size up.The Friday after my Birthday I decided to throw on this  Velvet number from ShoedazzleOn my final bday outing  on Saturday, I wore this super sexy dress with a high spilt from Fashion nova and booties from Justfab.

A Year Older

It is September 12th which to me is the best day ever. I am a year older. This year has been a very hard year for me. One of the hardest I have ever experienced in a while. The good thing about it is I have come out stronger and I have learned a lot about myself. This time last year I was saying goodbye to a job I loved celebrating with friends, while packing for my move to Georgia. A move was a much needed one for me, it was scary and Georgia was the world of the unknown for me. I suffered the Lack of job security, stopping my online business, no friends and while I have an amazing family member out here, I was leaving my closest family members back in New York.

Living In Georgia has also been good for me, My family has decided to move down here, I have mad a few new friends and I have become more dedicated to my blog. Change as scary as it may be has it’s ups as well as downs. Embracing the downs to achieve the up’s is the key.

I had a nice photoshoot planned but Irma wanted no parts of it, so i improvised showing my favorite looks for the year.

Why do I love September so?

September is my absolute favorite month, yes it’s my birthday month but there are other reasons behind it. September is a beautiful month, the season changes and so does the environment.Leaves fall and change colors, the trees become more bare, the sunsets become more bright, the breeze becomes more crisp.

September is the month where fashion begins to change, you start to throw on that sweater or that oversized scarf, throwing on a hat with your head not burning up is now an option on a bad hair day or just because.

If you live in New York City, it’s fashion week… no more needs to be said about that.

2 of my favorite beautiful people are born in September my BFF (in my head) Beyoncé and my husband (in my head ) Idris Elba. There are more amazing ppl born in this month but along with myself these are my top two. Lol

September is absolutely magnificent, love it, embrace it, enjoy it.
