I hope you are enjoying these fashion posts because I'm back with another fav of mine, Miss Barbra Ray from instagram. You can check her out on www.instagram.com/barbra_ray! If you love what you see she has her own online boutique, http://shopstylebybb.storenvy.com/. Barbra has a lot of dope outfits on her instagram but I picked this one in particular because I love the SHAMELESS SELFIE tee she is rocking! You can get my version, here! But other than that you can never go wrong with a classic all black everything look! Barbra added some style with the details though such as the exaggerated shoulders of her blazer which is from BB Dakota...love that site btw! Check it out, www.bbdakota.com! I did find another jacket similar to hers on Zara.com! Another way to play with an all black look is have some studs which she has plenty on her peep toe booties which I found for a reasonable price online. The links are below. So what do you think about Barbra's look? Would you rock it?
I was just browsing my Facebook page when one of my fav sites, Fashion Bomb Daily (www.fashionbombdaily.com) posted LeToya Luckett looking oh so effortlessly stylish...I just had to repost with my own twist of course.
Her statement piece, this Givenchy Multi-print Sweatshirt ($1,215) which is SOLD OUT...I wonder if she sold it out!?! Not that I would pay that much for a sweatshirt anyway! Lol. This looks is right up my alley...I love when you can throw stuff together like you just rolled out of bed but it just happens to look stylish! She is definitely doin' it! I've recreated this look with a twist...with one of my fav sweatshirts from my boutique, ET CETERA BOUTIQUE which are designs created by myself with a natural hair twist. I hope you like my take on this look. Check it out below and each item is linked as well- all under $50! I love a bargain!
start this post off with a disclaimer...I know a lot of people hate on this chick, Jai...yes, she is a firecracker with sooooooooooo much beauty, style and a hustler spirit to go along with it. I can see why some would hate on her...I personally do not...she is ahhhhmazing, flaws in all! Yes she is a firecracker but she has a reason to be. I respect that...its entertaining too! Lol. But please, do not comment on this post with any negativity. I'm all about showing respect and shouting out the fashionistas and business women that I look up to. Jai is one of them...so let's get this post started!
We are still talking about Instagram celebs...I started off with Style Pantry, then Mimi G...now we move on to Miss Jai! She is so dope. I've done a post about her before! She is the creative director of www.klosetenvy.com! I found this look on her instagram (www.instagram.com/jai_nice)! If you are not following her you are 344,000 follows behind! Ha ha! Go follow her dolls!
I love this look because she is wearing so many trends all in one- fur vest, midi skirt, lace up booties, Cuban link sunglasses, and a chain link necklace...all of which are very popular right now! Yea, usually you only want to stick with a few trends in one outfit but when you show off like Jai, you can get away with rocking as many as you'd like! Jai is known for rocking designer pieces mixed with more affordable options too like H&M, Forever21, etc so I'm not sure how much she spent on her 'fit...so instead of a look for less we can call this a recreation. See what I came up with below and the links follow as well. Enjoy!
Have you checked out my YouTube channel lately? I recently did my take on the "No Make-Up Make-Up" Look that is trending in the YouTube world! I have to be honest, I totally failed at the look! Lol. I ended up using pretty much the same amount make-up that I usually wear. I may have another try at it very soon. But more important than my failure is an amazing product that I've been obsessed with. It will be included in my monthly favs too! The L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer is bomb! Like OMG! Its really inexpensive but the coverage is ahhhhhmazing! I have really bad dark circles under my eyes because I rarely sleep! But this little crayon does magic. Check it out for yourself in this video. And don't forget to subscribe to my channel, www.youtube.com/etcblogmag!
Mimi, oh Mimi!
I love this woman! I first heard of her by randomly doing a google search and landed on her website, www.mimigstyle.com awhile ago! I was immediately intrigued by her fashion sense...its so classy. She has a classic style that will never go out of style! I also had the pleasure of doing a blog collab with her! Hey Mimi! Lol. She was so down to earth...she is definitely a social media celeb turned mogul! She is running thangs in her camp with a popular blog, her social media sites are bananas and she has events and even has her own pattern collection! She is always collabing with the big wigs too! I really am inspired by her and her brand. If you haven't heard of Mimi definitely go check out her blog, www.mimigstyle.com and she is on all social networks as "mimigstyle"! Her Pinterest account and IG are very popular! You may see her featured on Black Girls Killin' It! She is one of their favs too!
But I wanted to feature her again with this dope outfit. Mimi lives in Cali so she is always dressed like its a perfect sunny day! But don't worry, you can still get inspiration from such an outfit...you just need to add a few layers and make a few tweeks. With her look I especially love the way she paired overalls with a crop top. This is a perfect combo to be flirty but still classy! Its not showing too much, ya know. Her two tone necklace and stripe shirt compliment each other perfectly too! To remix this look and make it appropriate for those who actually have a fall/winter season I added another print- this plaid cape. I love mixing prints! And for the overalls I changed the material to these leather babies. Girls, I have not seen these anywhere where I live. Have you? I'm all over the leather jogger pants, pants, leggings, and skirts but not the overalls! I love this twist! Finally, Mimi has on some killer lace up sandals...we need to cover our feet though for this weather so I found these ahhhhmazing TOM FORD booties...yaaaassss, TOM FORD! And the price tag is very reasonable! Check out the recreation below and also check out the links which are all listed as well!
