Don’t you hate, when you are j cited to an event and have NOTHING to wear?  Especially, if it is formal.   PLAN ahead.  The holiday season is approaching.  Don’t wait to pick out your fit.  Have OPTIONS.  It does not mean break a bank.  Invest in some great staple pieces that can be versitle.  My first feature is this skirt!  Thank you, Roman Turner.  Simply paired with a white button down, Tracy Lynn necklace, Gucci shoes and clutch.

Oh how I am ready for Fall. It will be here sooner than a blink of an eye. One of the hottest trends for Fall is camouflage. I absolutely love this jacket! It is distressed in the back. Hence, it was not to terribly hot to wear. It is paired with a handkerchief, olive green skirt with zipper accents. A simple white tank and Gucci belt with bronze heels and you have a fit! Just like that!

Necklace is from Jireh’s Boutique located in Gadsden, Alabama.

Skirt and Jacket are from @the.boutique1.

Get ready for Fall!!

What to wear?  Not exactly an “after 5” event and definitely not a casual event.  How do select the perfect outfit?  DO YOU!   Sometimes you just have to take the work away and DO YOU!!  Wear what is comfortable and YOU.  Your confidence will outshine your outfit!  So….DO YOU and BE CONFIDENT!! 

The outfit that I selected to wear for a photography exhibit that was held from 6p-8p is another versitle piece. (Y’all know I love something that I can make into a whole entire different outfit).  Plus, I was supporting my husband as it was his night.  I kept it fun and different.  I wore a dress from one of my favorite boutiques, @theboutique.1 with a custom cuff.  The dress did not need a lot of accessories.

Note:  My friend Jermaine is stylish in his own right.  

Happy Shopping!

Be YOU!  Be Confident!  


The wide leg pant has made a comeback.  The pants are comfy and have the feel of wearing a skirt.  I chose to pair mine with a stripped bow blouse from Eloquii.  Use this outfit as a guide for a simple casual look.   These are pieces that I purchased earlier this year.  

Happy Shopping!!!!

I absolutely LOVE supporting up and coming designers.  Matasha Heard is the TRUTH!!  My custom bag is EVERYTHING!  She is professional and a true gem.  Check out her Instagram page @100jewelz to see more of her amazing work.  

My bag was purchased from @the.boutique1. This bag was purchased last year.  It was the perfect choice for custom work. Of course, I had to rock it with my trash skirt, necklace, and wrist candy from @the.boutique1. 

My tee is from Faithful Chics Boutique –

Happy Shopping!! Support an up and coming business.

So today I was challenged with blogging about Men’s fashion.  No problem.   I LOVE MY well dressed man!!  One of the things that I learned how to do well was dress on a budget! We love purchasing items on sale and that can go from season to season.  Also, my husband is a photographer.  His wardrobe must be comfortable, stylish, and professional.  He LOVES hats, so we always have fun pairing those to be dressed up or down.  Bottom line, we can put together an outfit for less than the cost of a pair of Air Jordan’s.  

Have FUN!  Be creative!  Enjoy shopping!!

NOTE:  Marcus’s outfits are sale purchased items.  No links available.  Guess I will have to blog more frequently about Men’s fashion finds.

The featured outfit:  slacks and hat from Amazon, leather converse shoes from Shoe Dept., and shirt is from JosBanks (clearance).  

Just two great looks that are under $100 (not including shoes). 

It is almost the holiday weekend!  There are going to be some amazing sales!  Through the weekend as I shop, I will share some of my great finds!!  However, I am working today so my excitement for shopping is on a brief pause.

Most companies have some type of dress down Friday, Casual Day, or Jean Friday which is totally AWESOME!!!  However, it is not an opportunity to come to work looking like you rolled  out of bed or leisure clothing.   Be comfortable while looking professional.  I am wearing my “fav” denim and joggers with the spiderweb sweeter.  Glammed with a gold chocker and gold custom cuff.  This look is from The Boutique in Riverdale, GA.  My gold roman sandals are Steve Madden.  

Keep it simple and styled up for Casual Friday!!

Be inspired!  Happy Shopping!
