How to Add a Pop of Color to Your Wardrobe

I wanted to express that this look was inspired by the late Kate Spade. Her love for pop of colors and polka dots was really inspiration and showed up a lot in her bags and other items.  Kate Spade will definitely be missed, she was one of the main reason why I got so into fashion. look inspired by Kate Spade- “The Things We Love”  great coffee table book If you could take a look at my closet you will see that most of my clothes  are  black and white or  neutral colors… not many colors. I have to consciously remind myself that you need more colors, you love color. What is is the problem. Either I am constantly reaching for my jeans, black body con, or graphic tees. How can I bring a small dose of color to my everyday looks?   So my number 1  way to add a pop of color to my outfits are through my handbags.  Now most of friends will say I always see you with a backpack. That is true,  I prefer to keep my hands free however I love handbags. Anyway, my love for handbag started when I got my first Coach purse for Christmas. I …

Summer Vibes X Striped Shirt Dress

Summer is among us and I am so happy to shed off these layers that I have been carrying around. I ready to let my arms and legs breathe and feel the warmth of the sun on my skin. Yes !! Lets have a little blast from the past.  I had a conference call with Natalie from Eloquii. We were discussing Detroit and all the wonderful things you can do here. Also, the new Eloquii store had made it arrival to Detroit. On the call I was invited to the grand opening party as well able to pick out few pieces as a gift. I was so excited and thankful at the same. So I stumble upon this shirt dress. Now normally I always go for something that is a little more form fitting. You know body con dress!  I love to show off my curves. So anyway all this month I wanted to focus on wearing items that are outside of my comfort zone. While I was online looking at  all the super chic items that Eloquii had to offer I found this dress in black and white stripes first. I started to go for black and white fit. I …

Its May !

Yes its May the month I been dreading about since April. I schedule my wisdom teeth extraction for May 1st. Thus why this post is going up so late. According to the hat in the picture, I have been off duty ! I had plans to complete the day before my extraction however I was so terrified that I could not wrap my head around typing up a blog post.  With all that being said I faced my fear head on, tooth by tooth! Literally !So yes I have 4 teeth missing and I am in lot of pain. Thank God for Motrins lol.  Since getting my teeth pulled I been a little sad. I think my face looks different… well duh my cheeks are swollen! But I still feel like I don’t look the same.  I miss eating normal whole foods, and chewing lol. Nothing like a wisdom teeth extraction that make you appreciate small things like being able to eat. So to get out my mine off the negative let start brainstorming for the blog. No pain or discomfort last forever ! Fashion Note On the fashion note this month we are going to keep it simple.  I …
