We all know fashion repeats itself, but when was the last time you wore a denim jumper? Jumper shorts to be exact! Lol. That's why I love fashion...I like to see things come back around but with a new twist. The only bad thing about seeing these things happen is that its telling my age. Ha!
I recently got a message from one of my facebook girls, Tiffany! Hey Tiffany! She asked me about this new trend and asked for some styling advice. I love when my girls inbox me because it inspires new posts on this blog! So I took her message and styled this look.
I started of course with this dope denim jumper from Zara...OMG, I love that site. Its so fashion forward. Next, I knew I wanted to add some Timberlands...I've been rocking mine a lot lately. They are soooooooooo old too but they still look good. And since this jumper is kinda boyish and loose fitting I decided to add a crop top...its a fun top too. Notice the print- I see some old school graphics such as a cassette tape! Loves it. Then I pulled red from that top and added the red bag, lipstick and nail polish. To finish the look off I had to add some bold gold jewelry- door knockahs! Heyyyyyy! You know my look is not complete without them! If this look is too boyish for you, you can always add some heels to add a flirty detail. These sandals are very in these days! Rihanna stays with a pair of them. If you love this look all the items are linked below (thumbnails).
And what do you think about these comebacks? Would you rock them?
I attended my first fashion show in my hometown, Salisbury! And guess who was there! Dwight Eubanks from RHOA (Real Housewives of Atlanta)! It was so ahhh-mazing that he blessed our city with him hosting this fashion show. The fashion show was started by Antoinette Hickman and Waneka Broughton (heeeyyyy girls!)! I was so excited they allowed me to attend this event as a blogger (I had an all access media/press pass). I emailed them so late too! So thanks you girls for this! I got to sit front row of the show, record the event, and I even got to meet Dwight. I won't ramble too much about the event because I am editing footage right now! So that post will be up Monday or Tuesday. Definitely come back to see all the footage- it was very entertaining! Its a must see!
But what I rocked to this event was my CHANEL NATURALE crop top from ETC BOUTIQUE! If you haven't seen it you have to go check it out and purchase RIGHT NOW! Its so affordable, stylish and its perfect to shout out to the world that you are #TEAMNATURAL. This is one of my fav tees. Not only the chic design (inspired by Chanel No. 5) but the actual t-shirt is top quality. This is a Bella Brand tee and its a longer crop top...its very flowy so its not tight at all! Its so relaxed and shows off the right spots and hides the not so flawless areas. At least on me. Basically it hides your belly! He he! This design is very clean and chic and it makes this tee look like its expensive/high fashion! But this is one of my original designs and the price is right!
With this dope tee I paired it with an assymetric skirt, a black blazer, gray knee high boots, gold jewelry, and this amazing bag, The Manhattan from JustFab.com! I love this site. I have a monthly subscription where I get something new once a month! I get to pick the items but its a nice deal to get yourself something dope once a month we deserve it. If you want join, click here. I get all my bags and shoes from there. I don't mess with the clothing yet though. Lol. No offense Kimora Lee Simmons...oh yea, yall she runs the website. So its kinda fly! Anyway...I think my 'fit was perfect...the day was warm but not too warm and that was my perfect excuse to rock a mini skirt and boots! It was the best weather for it!
Visit my boutique, Et Cetera Boutique right now to purchase this one. You won't regret it! Now let's check out this 'fit in action!

These are a few of my fav products to use to achieve the perfect cat eyes! Keep in mind the short the brush/stick the easier it is to use. But once you use the longer stems you have to use more hand-eye coordination because you cannot rest your palm or fingers on your cheeks/face for support. To learn more, check out this tutorial.
